Raspberry Pi's gorgeous Pixel desktop can now...

The Raspberry Pi Foundation just revealed an early Christmas present for all the good little Linux lovers and Raspberry Pi fans in the world, as the organization announced they’ve ported an early prototype of the Raspberry Pi’s Pixel desktop experience to Mac and Windows PCs. That means you can now run the gorgeous Pixel desktop experience natively on your regular laptop by booting from a USB drive. 

”If we like Pixel so much, why ask people to buy Raspberry Pi hardware in order to run it?” Raspberry Pi founder Eben Upton said in a blog post. “There is a massive installed base of PC and Mac hardware out there, which can run x86 Debian just fine.”

Apple’s decision to go all-in on USB-C ports on the new MacBook Pro has of course generated a great deal of debate. In a poll we ran almost two months ago, a slim majority of you felt that the decision was a positive one, but the votes were very close.

Now that many of us have been using our shiny new machines for some time, and had the chance to adjust to working with the new ports, I thought it would be interesting to see how easy or difficult an...

Raspberry Pi's Linux-Based PIXEL Desktop Now...

From a report on BetaNews: If you own a Raspberry Pi, you're probably familiar with PIXEL. The desktop environment is included in the Raspbian OS. The Raspberry Pi Foundation describes PIXEL as the "GNU/Linux we would want to use" and understandably so. It offers a smart, clean interface, a decent selection of software, the Chromium web browser with plug-ins, and more -- and from today it's available for PC and Mac. The version of Debian+PIXEL for x86 platforms is described as "experimental" but having taken it for a spin, it seems pretty stable to me. To run PIXEL on your PC or Mac, download the image, burn it onto a DVD or flash it onto a USB memory stick, and boot from it. The desktop environment will load ready for use.

AT&T offers Call Protect app, looks to curb spam...

Even if you have gripes about AT&T, this should come in handy.

This week, AT&T revealed a new service that automatically blocks robocalls and identifies other suspicious spam calls for users on a voice and data contract with a smartphone that supports HD Voice.

The free service, dubbed “Call Protect”, arrives with a free companion mobile app for iOS and Android that lets users setup temporary call blocking and get notifications about what’s been auto-blocked. The feature blocks spam calls at the network level before they reach a customer’s phone.

Call Protect also warns users about calls that emanate from a “suspected spam source”, giving them the option to accept or refuse the call. AT&T customers who are eligible for the service have to opt-...

Refurbished first-gen Apple Watch units now...

You can now snag a refurbished first-gen Apple Watch at a pretty decent savings.

Apple has just posted its cheapest model, a refurbished Apple Watch Series 1 in a 38mm rose gold aluminum case, is only $229. Others, like stainless steel versions of the Apple Watch Series 2, are available for $509, or about 15 percent off. This move follows Apple’s recent decision to start selling refurbished iPhone models on its online store.

The discounts generally range between 14 to 16 percent off throughout the entire range of models.

Luxury goods buyers unfortunately won’t find the multi-thousand dollar Apple Watch Edition up for discount. The company notably left that eye-popping price tier, which originally included a 18-karat gold case and a five-...

It’s time for Apple to simplify its product line-up...

When Steve Jobs returned to Apple in 1997, he drastically simplified the product line-up. It’s time for the company to do the same again.

Upon Job’s return, Apple was selling a dozen versions of the Mac. His strategy was to produce only four products: one desktop and one portable device aimed at both consumers and professionals. 

That precise strategy won’t work today because Apple has more product categories, but the principal — a streamlined product line with more focus on quality and innovation — is still relevant. Here’s what I propose:

The Mac. The Mac line-up will follow Jobs’ vision. There will be one desktop for professionals (the Mac Pro) and one for consumers (the iMac). Under this scenario, the Mac mini will disappear. Of course, Apple could ditch the Mac Pro AND Mac mini (which I think will, unfortunately, happen) and offer an “iMac Pro” (state-of-the-art specs and more expandability than current models) and an “iMac.”

Uber relents, suspends self-driving car tests in San...

Uber has halted its self-driving car trials in San Francisco and agreed to work with state regulators on obtaining proper permits for 16 test cars. The move amounts to a climbdown by Uber, which had last week argued it didn’t need to obtain the permits.

That sparked a demand from the state that the cars be pulled off the roads immediately and a threat of legal action if they were not.

Uber had argued its cars didn’t require autonomous car permits because they didn’t meet the law’s definition of being autonomous. It said the cars require a driver in the front seat at all times, and so are not autonomous but more akin to Tesla cars with advanced auto-pilot software.

The Epson WorkForce ET-3660 EcoTank wireless all-in-one comes loaded and ready with up to two years of ink in the box. Or so says Epson. However, its predecessor, the ET-4550, did exactly that. In fact, in over a year, I’ve never replaced an ice cartridge.

That’s an incredible amount of ink — enough to print up to 11,000 black/8500 color pages, and equivalent to about 50 ink cartridge sets. The printer is designed for homes, home offices and small offices that print 300 to 400 pages per month.

My family goes through a LOT of ink each year as my wife and daughter print photos, recipes, coupons, etc. I need a printer that doesn’t threaten to break my bank account in ink cartridge purchases.

When replacement ink is needed, the cost for the WorkForce ET-3660 EcoTan will reportedly be as low as $12.99 per bottle, or $52...

Today, AT&T launches AT&T Call Protect. The free network-based service gives eligible AT&T wireless customers with HD Voice more control over unwanted calls on their smartphones.

This innovative solution harnesses the power of the AT&T network to give customers automatic fraud blocking and suspected spam call warnings.

Sounds like a great idea, but I was under the impression that many of the spam calls cycle through numbers endlessly. That could be a long cat and mouse game, but hopefully with technology, they can curb a lot of it.

Nokia and Apple trade accusations in patent lawsuits

An international patent dispute has broken out between Apple and Nokia over the Finnish mobile network vendor’s licensing terms for the widely used H.264 video codec and other technologies.

Nokia on Wednesday filed lawsuits against Apple in Germany and in the U.S., alleging that the smartphone giant has infringed 32 of its patents.

Nokia’s five lawsuits follow an Apple lawsuit filed in California Tuesday. The U.S. company accused Nokia of working with patent assertion firms Acacia Research and Conversant Intellectual Property Management to “extract and extort exorbitant revenues unfairly and anticompetitively” from Apple and other smartphone makers. Nokia was not named as one of eight defendants in the Apple lawsuit.

A widely quoted Bloomberg report, quoting unnamed “people familiar with Apple’s inner workings,” says the “Mac team has lost clout with the famed industrial design group led by Jony Ive and the company's software team.” I don’t know if this is true or not. For all I know, Apple’s design guru may spend 25 hours a day thinking of ways to make better Macs.

However, if Bloomberg is correct, why not give someone else free reign to do something revolutionary with the Mac? What about Richard Howarth, Apple’svice president of Industrial Design?

He joined Apple in 1996 and has been involved in the design of nearly every Apple product since the original iMac. Howarth — who has a bachelor’s degree in Industrial Design from Ravensbourne — led the design of each generation of iPhone and, most recently, the Apple Watch. 

As head of the Industrial Design group, he leads...

Simple automated Christmas lighting with BlissLights...

I usually put up my Christmas lights around Thanksgiving, and in the past that has meant putting LED light nets on some shrubs, running a string of lights along the gutter line of the house, and then changing out some security bulbs in the front yard with red and green lights. This year, my travels kept me from doing that so I had to figure out a way to get lighting done in minutes rather than hours. Fortunately, I was able to make the house look festive very quickly with BlissLights laser projectors ($139.00), HomeKit, and Siri.

How do BlissLights work? They are small laser projectors that use holographic laser technology to project thousands of tiny bright dots on a house or other "target". There are actually two different types -- BlissLights Motion and BlissLights Color. With the former, some of the light dots move and flicker, while with the latter the projector also uses LED lights to provide a background...

One of my favorite things to do with an iPhone is to broadcast from a remote location when the situation warrants. Just this past week our local county seat had an extended power outage lasting most of the day, and I was able to show live what the town looked like with all businesses and traffic lights dark. It’s not only enjoyable, but can perform a public service to others.

There are many times, though, when I would prefer to broadcast audio only. I often have situations where I am teaching a class or giving a talk. Others are interested in hearing, but there is no applicable video to send or that would be of interest. I’ve often searched for an app that would permit me to broadcast audio only and let me basically be a “radio” station where others can listen. My search has been in vain — but now that is about to change.

Super Mario Run sets new sales records

Super Mario Run is already half way to projected first month download and revenue totals, according to Sensor Tower Store Intelligence data. The game surpassed 25 million worldwide downloads in its four-day opening weekend of Dec. 15-18, while earning more than $21 million in global gross revenue during this same period. 

Nintendo’s title reached the 25 million installs milestone faster than any previous mobile game, a feat that we’ve visualized in the following chart. Pokémon GO, which previously held the record for fastest mobile game to 25 million downloads, took 11 days from its July 6, 2016 launch to reach that point—seven days longer than Super Mario Run. As of this writing, the iOS-only game remains No. 1 for iPhone downloads in 75 of the 80 countries where it’s ranking, and No. 1 for revenue in 23.

Super Mario Run breaks records, gets 40 million...

(credit: Kyle Orland)

Super Mario Run's $10 asking price and the Internet connectivity requirement may have earned it some poor reviews in the iTunes Store, but they haven't kept the game from being successful. According to a Japanese press release with quotes from both Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto and Apple's Phil Schiller, Nintendo says that the game has been downloaded more than 40 million times in its first four days. The app ranks number one in the "Top Free" charts in 140 countries and is in the top 10 in the "Top Grossing" category in 100 countries.

In Mario Run's case, a download isn't quite the same as a purchase, since the app is free to download but requires a...

Apple updates its AirPort Extreme software

Apple has released new versions of its router software: 7.6.8 for the 802.11n AirPort Extreme, and 7.7.8 for the 802.11ac AirPort Extreme. According to Apple's release notes, the update fixes an issue where the routers would not respond to the AirPort Utility when "Back to My Mac" is enabled. There are also security fixes.

You can install the upgrades via the AirPort Utility. If the routers are not visible as a result of "Back to my Mac" being enabled, disable the feature and reboot the routers. 

Apple is apparently abandoning the AirPort Express, the AirPort Extreme, and AirPort Time Capsule. However, the company ranks highest in overall satisfaction among wireless router manufacturers in a new study by J.P. Power.

Back in 2014 following Apple’s acquisition of Beats, the company planned to transition away from Beats’ design firm Ammunition. Naturally, most assumed that Apple would then be using its own design teams for future Beats products. But we’ve learned that Ammunition is continuing to work with Apple in some capacity, at least collaborating on the design of its latest BeatsX and Beats EP headphones.

Opinion: Will Apple switch from Lightning to USB-C...

When Apple launched the iPhone 5 with a new-fangled Lightning port – instead of the 30-pin dock connector that had been a standard feature on every previous generation of iPhone, as well as on iPods since 2003 – there was a great deal of outrage.

‘What about all the docks and speaker systems we own that have 30-pin connectors?’ was the question many asked. The decision was described as arrogant and unreasonable. Apple was accused of profiteering, by forcing everyone to buy new cables, docks and speakers.

Apple responded in three ways. It pointed to the undeniable technical superiority of the new port. It explained the difficulty of making ever slimmer devices with a port designed for much thicker ones. And it assured everyone that this would be the last change for a long time – that the Lightning port would be around for many years to come …

Algoriddim has spent the last decade making award-winning, best-selling DJ apps for iOS and Mac. This year, that tradition continues with the launch of Djay Pro for iPhone ($4.99 for a limited time on iTunes).

Like Djay 2 for iPhone, Djay Pro features a two-deck turntable interface, Spotify integration, and native support for external MIDI controllers. Djay Pro also relies on the iPhone 7’s haptic feedback for a more realistic sensation when scratching and scrubbing the waveforms, and 3D Touch is also employed so that DJs can set a cue point in the song without taking their finger off the waveform.

No battery icon for the AirPods

I was reading this post from Kirk McElhearn, walking through ways of checking AirPods battery life, when I noticed that the iPhone AirPods icon does not include a battery life icon.

For example, here’s what I see with my Bluetooth headphones. Note the headphone icon in the upper right, showing the battery life left in my headphones.

While the AirPods do show up as a Headphone icon on the iPhone, they do not include a battery level indicator in the icon. Any idea why this is?

The Mac is in the back seat, especially the Mac Pro

Mark Gurman, Bloomberg:

Interviews with people familiar with Apple’s inner workings reveal that the Mac is getting far less attention than it once did. They say the Mac team has lost clout with the famed industrial design group led by Jony Ive and the company’s software team. They also describe a lack of clear direction from senior management, departures of key people working on Mac hardware and technical challenges that have delayed the roll-out of new computers.

Combine this with Tim Cook’s response to employees in an internal memo:

“Some folks in the media have raised the question about whether we’re committed to desktops,” Cook wrote. “If there’s any doubt about that with our teams, let me be very clear: we have great...

The cool cats at iFixit have just published their full teardown of Apple’s new wireless AirPods along with the charging kit that arrives with the unit. Through the teardown, iFixit cites a multitude of closely knit components within the AirPods, along with a few “quality issues” within the charging case that may be the reason for the months-long delay of the wireless headphones.

The teardown began by separating the speaker portion of the AirPod from the rest of the device, uncovering a miniature coaxial cable and two IR proximity sensors, which allow the AirPods to detect whenever they’re inside an ear, and play/pause music accordingly.

iFixit cited a “waterfall of glue” inside the base of the AirPod that essentially surrounds the charging point for the...

If you thought Apple’s USB-C adapter prices were a bit steep, there’s a price break until the end of March, 2017.

Apple on Friday lowered the prices for many of its USB-C adapters, which are necessary for users who want to connect their devices to the new laptop. But the price cuts only last until the end of this year.

The new MacBook Pro has Thunderbolt 3/USB-C ports, which have a different connector than that of USB-A devices and cables like the iPhone sync cable. That means you need to buy an adapter. Depending on your devices, you may need to buy several adapters.

The company offered the following comments:

By Aaron Lee

River Design's Sparkle is a handy website builder for those who prefer to do things visually. The app translates any text and graphic layout to HTML and provides Mac users with a fun way to build websites visually. 

Sparkle gives Mac users a great way to build website visually, a natural fit for people who don't think in symbols and don't want to be constrained by predefined templates. Former iWeb users will find themselves at home with Sparkle, going well beyond what iWeb offered.

Sparkle features include menus, image galleries, maps, social media and more. For example the menu system scales from manual set up to fully automatic with synchronization to the website structure, whereas image galleries not only generate @2x and @3x retina images, but they generate a full set with thumbnails, for each image, for each device. Maps are based on the industry standard ones from Google, Sparkle integrates easy address lookup and a number of...

If you’re looking for a rugged, wireless, portable (2.9 x 6.8 x 2.3 inches and weighing about a pound) speaker that packs good sound for its size, give a listen to the Soundcast VG1. It’s a Bluetooth speaker that’s shock absorbing and waterproof, so it’s ready to hit the road, sit by the pool, or provide audio in your home office.

The VG1 is made of two-inch aluminum drivers that pack powerful neodymium magnets, a rear-firing weighted bass radiator and digital sound processing. Of special interest to Mac users: it also works with Siri for hands- free control. If you use the VG1 in an office setting, you’ll appreciate its built-in microphones,  which can be used for conference calls.

Across the top of the VG1 are controls for power, volume up/down and a multifunction button that operates playback and manages calls via the speakerphone. The right side panel is home to connections for an included micro...

"Instead of revealing the true condition of the company and its prospects, defendants hid those facts from investors and chose to issue strong guidance and paint a picture of a bright future with a new mega-customer," the complai...
