Report: Amazon is making an Apple TV app almost 2...

Enlarge / The fourth-generation Apple TV. (credit: Andrew Cunningham)

At long last, Amazon will release an official Prime Video app for the Apple TV—at least, if a new report from Recode is to be believed. Citing "people familiar with the two companies," the report indicates that Amazon and Apple are "close to an agreement" that would bring Amazon's app to Apple's box sometime over the summer.

Currently, watching Prime Video on an Apple TV requires you to sling it from the Prime Video app on an iPhone or iPad via AirPlay, a clunky-at-best solution that doesn't always work well and (from my own personal experience) reduces video quality relative to a direct stream. Because Amazon doesn'...

Porsche opens digital center in Silicon Valley

Sportscar maker Porsche is opening a digital technology center with 100 staff in Silicon Valley to forge new partnerships, cooperate with venture-capital companies and invest in new companies, it said on Friday.

This is a very interesting move for Porsche. They aren’t waiting to license technology in a few years when it matures, they are getting in on the ground floor where it’s being developed in Silicon Valley.

Could Apple buy Netflix or Tesla? Citigroup thinks so

In response, Citigroup analyst Jim Suva has listed both Netflix and Tesla as takeover targets for Apple…

Most U.S. households have ditched landlines for...

In America, landlines aren’t the norm anymore.

A recently released survey from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (PDF) estimates that during the second half of 2016 50.8 percent of U.S. households were wireless only. That’s up from 48.3 percent during the same time period in 2015—a rise of 2.5 percentage points.

The story behind the story: It might seem odd to hear that the CDC is tracking phone usage, but there’s actually a good reason for it. Every year, the CDC conducts a face-to-face survey with 40,000 households called the National Health Interview Survey. Since 2003, the NHIS has monitored what kind of phone connectivity respondents had: landline or mobile. This data gives the CDC useful information that correlates to the health status of people without landlines.

Data from App Annie shows that the average smartphone owner spends 2 hours and 15 minutes a day using apps – the equivalent of one month a year. The average person has 60-90 apps installed on their phone, using around 30 of them each month and launching 9 per day.

Utilities and Tools led the way thanks to numerous pre-installed apps, such as Safari on iOS and Google on Android. After pre-installed apps, some of the largest categories by average apps used are Social Networking, Communication, and Social. This underscores the continued importance of social categories to marketing efforts for all types of apps.

The time spent using apps varied dramatically depending on the type of app …

A new piece of backdoor malware originally discovered on Windows has found a new home in macOS. Disguising itself as a legitimate Adobe Flash Player installer, the malware burrows into pre-existing macOS folders making it harder to spot. Having used a valid developer’s certificate, the malware was set to run free on macOS even with Gatekeeper enabled.

These certificates were created to help validate applications with Gatekeeper, but lately have been used to spread malicious software. This is the second reported malware incident in the past week using a valid certificate.

Rumor: Amazon Prime coming to the Apple TV

Apple and Amazon are close to reaching an agreement that would bring Amazon Prime to the Apple TV, reports recode, quoting unnamed “people familiar with the two companies.”

This would allow Amazon Prime Video subscribers to easily watch TV shows and movies from the service using Apple's set-top box. Amazon employees expect the app to show up on Apple’s hardware in the third quarter of the year, according to recode.

If the rumor is true, this would be an about-face for Amazon. In June 2016, CEO Jeff Bezos said he only wants Amazon to sell devices that support Prime Video. Amazon Prime is a membership program that gives customers access to streaming video, music, e-books, free...

Robert Bosch has won orders from Apple to supply the next iPhone with some of its motion sensors, a potential blow to InvenSense, which currently is the main supplier of the smartphone components, Bloomberg reports, quoting an unnamed “person familiar with the deal.”

Bosch is a German multinational engineering and electronics company headquartered in Gerlingen, near Stuttgart, Germany. Bloomberg says the company may supply as much as half of these components for the “iPhone 8,” with InvenSense supplying the rest, the person said. Bosch already supplies barometric pressure sensors for the Apple smartphone.Representatives for Apple, InvenSense and Bosch declined to comment.

ExxonMobile now accepts Apple Watch payments

As noted by Cult of Mac, ExxonMobil stations in the U.S. are now accepting Apple Watch payments via Apple Pay, Apple’s mobile payment service.

You’ll have to download the Speedpass+ app, which lets you pay your gas bill with a tap of your wrist. You’ll have the option to use Apple Pay, or input your credit card information manually.

Just like with Apple Pay, you’ll drive up to a pump and the Speedpass+ app will use your iPhone’s location to determine where you are. You then enter the pump number on your Watch and authorize the payment using your preferred payment method.

Apple Pay is currently available in 14 countries: Australia, Canada, China, France, Hong Kong, Japan, New Zealand, Russia, Singapore, Spain, Switzerland, the UK and USA. Apple Pay works with iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and Apple Watch. When paying within apps...

One of the advantages of "that other mobile operating system" is that many of those phones use a standard called Qi for wireless charging. You just place your smartphone onto a charging dock without plugging in any cables, and the device is quickly charged up. Well, rumor has it that the iPhone 8 will be the first iPhone with wireless charging, and Apple's a member of the Wireless Power Consortium...the group that developed the Qi standard. Today we've got a deal on a wireless charging dock for "those other phones" and possibly for the iPhone 8; get this ...

Looking to relax after a long, hard day? Finding a game to match that laid-back mood can be challenging indeed. More and more games are focused on competition, whether it’s live or via leaderboards, while ultra-challenging games are especially in vogue right now. And that’s not even considering how games with timers or move limits continually prod you. Games can be stressful sometimes!

Citi lists Netflix as the top target of Apple in a note to clients. The investment firm thinks a 10% repatriation tax on cash sitting overseas will entice the tech giant to make the deal.

The other top potential targets for Apple identified by Citi are Disney, Hulu, Activision Blizzard, Electronic Arts, Take-Two Interactive, and Tesla.

Citi analyst Jim Suva says each is a strategic fit in its own way. The Citi handicapping puts 40% odds on a Netflix buyout, 25% odds on a Disney buyout and the rest at 10% or lower odds. Add you own potential Apple target in the comment stream.

The latest data on U.S. iPhone sales from Consumer Intelligence Research Partners (CIRP) illustrates the ‘pause’ in iPhone sales described by Apple CEO Tim Cook in the most recent earnings call. The company’s data indicates that the iPhone 6s/Plus accounts for the largest proportion of models owned, at 34%, with the original iPhone 6/Plus just behind at 33%. The Phone 7/Plus, in contrast, sits at 26%.

“Growth in the US installed has slowed considerably in the past year,” added Mike Levin, Partner and Co-Founder of CIRP

While CIRP puts forward a number of possible explanations for this slowing growth, Cook blamed it primarily on one factor …

FBI director James Comey’s testimony states that...

Per FBI director James Comey’s testimony to a Senate oversight committee, the Bureau has been unable to access almost half of the mobile devices it tried to examine in the first half of the fiscal year.

Comey said the FBI had been unable to access the contents of more than 3,000 mobile devices in the first half of the fiscal year, using what he described as “appropriate and available technical tools, even though there was the legal authority to do so.” He said that represented “nearly half” of all the mobile devices it had attempted to access in that time frame.

Comey’s statements seem to be leading towards support of forcing phone manufacturers to provide backdoor access to the authorities.

In his testimony, Comey offered the following comments:

I could imagine a world that ends up with legislation saying that if you’re going to make devices in the U.S. you figure out how to comply with court orders. Or maybe we don’t go there. But we are having...

Why Apple’s laptops could use a little less...

As a company, Apple’s philosophy is often about pushing the envelope. And that’s great. It’s how we got the original Mac’s GUI, the iPhone, and other products and features too numerous to name. Apple likes to play up this revolutionary part of its history, and how it’s constantly trying to create world-beating products and not just move the needle slowly forward. It’s not imagine the late Steve Jobs summoning forth the adage often attributed to Henry Ford: “If I had asked people what they wanted, they would have said faster horses.”

Of course, the philosophy of innovation can go awry. Apple was so concerned about transforming the 2013 edition of the Mac Pro into an elegant, radical piece of machinery that it lost sight of what made that product appeal to its users. In a rare moment, the comapny even admitted it had taken the wrong approach.

Damage

Shawn posted this last night, but this hits very close to home for me, wanted to add my 2 cents.

Matt Gemmell:

No company has done as much damage to the perceived value of software, and the sustainability of being an independent developer, as Apple.

Not that other companies wouldn’t have done the same thing — they would have. It’s just that Apple was the successful one.

It’s resolutely the fault of us as consumers, and it’s actively encouraged by the App Store.

This is a scorcher. At its heart, this is about the iOS App Store’s race to the bottom, price-wise, and the difficulty of making a living as a developer in a “pennies for your work” market.

Matt does an excellent job laying out all the details. A core argument:

Has Apple created a huge market, in terms of potential customers? Absolutely. It’s just done so at the expense of its platform-invested developer community. Judging by the company’s value and income, it was a very wise...

Qualcomm could consider “nuclear option” in ongoing...

Things are getting ugly between Apple and Qualcomm.

Qualcomm, which has been in a heated dispute with Apple over patent royalty payment, may exercise the nuclear option by asking the United States International Trade Commission (USITC) to block iPhone imports.

At the root of the dispute between Apple and Qualcomm are cellular communication technology patents that Apple and others license from Qualcomm for a hefty fee.

The tensions, which have been brewing for months, finally hit a new peak in January when the Federal Trade Commission accused Qualcomm of anti-trust practices. Essentially the deals it was making with companies like Apple were considered unfair. Part of the issue was that Qualcomm was charging Apple a licensing fee for every single iPhone, whether or not every device used Qualcomm’s cellular technologies. As of the iPhone 7, Apple started mixing in Intel baseband processors to the iPhone mix.

A few days later, Apple filed suit against...

Google Docs phishing attack underscores OAuth...

Google has stopped Wednesday’s clever email phishing scheme, but the attack may very well make a comeback.

One security researcher has already managed to replicate it, even as Google is trying to protect users from such attacks.

“It looks exactly like the original spoof,” said Matt Austin, director of security research at Contrast Security.

The phishing scheme—which may have circulated to 1 million Gmail users—is particularly effective because it fooled users with a dummy app that looked like Google Docs.

Recipients who received the email were invited to click a blue box that said “Open in Docs.” Those who did were brought to an actual Google account page that asks them to handover Gmail access to the dummy app.

Apple becomes world’s number one wearables vendor

According to the latest research from Strategy Analytics, global wearables shipments reached 22 million units in the first quarter of 2017 (Q1 2016). Apple captured 16% marketshare and became the world’s largest wearables vendor, overtaking Fitbit, thanks to the Apple Watch.

“Apple shipped 3.5 million wearables worldwide in Q1 2017, rising 59% annually from 2.2 million units in Q1 2016,” says Neil Mawston, executive director at Strategy Analytics. “Apple captured 16 percent global marketshare and overtook Fitbit to become the world’s largest wearables vendor. The new Apple Watch Series 2 is selling relatively well in the U.S., UK and elsewhere, due to enhanced styling, intensive marketing and a good retail presence.”

Fitbit shipped 2.9 million wearables worldwide in Q1 2017, falling 36% annually from 4.5 million in Q1 2016. The company has lost its wearables leadership to Apple, due to slowing demand for...

Apple’s share of the $600-plus smartphone market in...

Apple’s share of the $600-plus Chinese smartphone market is 80%, according to new data from Counterpoint Research

“The premium segment $600+ or 4000rmb remained flat annually but shrunk 33% sequentially. Apple’s share of this super-premium segment remains at 80%, with five out of the top ten model SKUs belonging to Apple,” says Research Analyst Mengmeng Zhang. “The 4000 rmb and above segment mostly peaks during the Apple iPhone launch quarter and shrinks for the rest of the year. This volatility is because of Apple and affects Apple, as competition in the premium space is still weak. Though we are seeing Huawei with its Mate 9 series and players such as Vivo trying to make some movement in this segment to attract premium Android users.

Smartphones shipments in China grew a modest 4% annually during Q1 the first quarter of 2017 and declined 20% sequentially. Oppo and vivo were the fastest growing brands...

Doing so means that Apple doesn’t have to pay licensing fees to a third-party, which means it keeps more the money from each sale.

You might know Rovio and its little avian-flinging games, Angry Birds. The series has amassed a strong following over the years and is one of highest-rated game franchises on the App Store. However, excitement for the brand has dimmed as of late despite the Angry Birds reaching into just about every product category Rovio could fling them in to. And now it looks like the developer is quietly testing the waters with the release of its latest IP, Battle Baymore…

Imagination Technologies starts dispute ‘resolution...

Imagination Technologies says it's started a "dispute resolution procedure" with Apple, its biggest customer, after failing to resolve a standoff over licensing between the two companies.

Last month it was announced that Apple plans to stop using Imagination Technologies intellectual property within two years, ending its royalty payments. The tech giant is working on its own custom graphics architecture to control more of the core technology, in the same way that it already architects custom CPU silicon design. Apple will probably pay graphics chip designer Imagination Technologies just one third of its current royalty rate as the smartphone giant wind downs their supply deal over the next two years, according to estimates by the UBS research group.

Apple has used Imagination's technology in its products since the introduction of the iPod. It receives royalties from...

Qualcomm may consider asking U.S. to ban iPhone...

Qualcomm, in a smartphone chip licensing spat with Apple, will reportedly ask a U.S. government agency to ban the import of iPhones into the country.

Qualcomm plans to ask the U.S. International Trade Commission to ban imports of iPhones, which are built in Asia, according to a Bloomberg Technology report. The news report cited an unnamed person familiar with Qualcomm's strategy. 

A Qualcomm spokesman didn't immediately respond to a request for comment on the news report.

The USITC has the power to ban imports into the U.S. for patent infringement, and the agency is frequently used by patent holders as an alternative or addition to slow-moving patent infringement lawsuits in U.S. courts.

We've talked about CloudMounter from Eltima Software before. It's a great app that takes just about any type of server or cloud service and mounts it on your Mac as if it's a local drive. Sometimes we get terabytes of storage with a service (i.e., Office 365) and don't even use it. CloudMounter (US$29.99, affiliate link will compensate Apple World Today when you make a purchase) makes it simple to take advantage of all that cloud space, clear out room on your Mac, and keep it all safe in the process.

A recent update to CloudMounter now ensures that your data is kept safe by enabling encryption on all of your mounted cloud services, locking them all...

Splitting Up With Apple is a Chipmaker's...

Apple is such a powerful company that, for third-party suppliers, it's hard not to become reliant on the cash that it pays you. Engadget adds: But when Apple says that it's done, choosing to move whatever technology you provide in house, the results can be really painful. Imagination Technologies is one such supplier, famously designing the iPhone's PowerVR graphics as well as pushing MIPS, a rival to ARM. But back in March, Imagination publicly announced that Apple was ditching it in favor of its own graphics silicon. Now, Imagination has revealed that it's going to take Apple to dispute resolution, maintaining that the iPhone maker used Imagination's IP without permission. It's the second chipmaker in recent months who believes Apple isn't playing fair, with Qualcomm counter-suing Apple in its own licensing dispute. Secondly, Imagination is going to have to sell off MIPS and Ensigma, two parts of its business that aren't as profitable as PowerVR. Gamers with long memories will...

Apple plans to create a $1 billion fund to invest in "advanced manufacturing" jobs in the United States. CEO Tim Cook made the announcement last night in a CNBC interview with Mad Money host Jim Cramer, and he says that Apple plans to announce its first investment later this month. Cook wants the new fund to create a "ripple effect" in the job market—he says that the manufacturing jobs created directly by the fund will also create service jobs needed to support them.

"Advanced manufacturing" is a bit vague, but generally speaking it's an umbrella term that encompasses creating technologically advanced products or improving the...

iPad sales continued to shrink in Apple's fiscal 2017 second quarter that ended April 1, 2017 (approximately 8.9 million tablets compared to 10 million in fiscal quarter 2016), but it’s not just Apple that’s seeing tablet sales decline. And there's a glimmer of good news for the iPad Pro.

The worldwide tablet market once again contracted in the first quarter of 2017 (1Q17) with total shipments of 36.2 million, a year-over-year decline of 8.5%, according to preliminary data from the International Data Corporation (IDC) Worldwide Quarterly Tablet Tracker. The first quarter contraction marks the tenth straight quarter that tablets have experienced a decline over the same quarter a year earlier, with the previous five quarters recording double-digit drops.

The tablet market is comprised of two different product categories, which are...

FBI director James Comey yesterday told a Senate oversight committee that the FBI has been unable to access almost half of the mobile devices it tried to examine in the first half of the fiscal year, reports TechCrunch.

Comey said the FBI had been unable to access the contents of more than 3,000 mobile devices in the first half of the fiscal year, using what he described as “appropriate and available technical tools, even though there was the legal authority to do so.” He said that represented “nearly half” of all the mobile devices it had attempted to access in that time frame.

Comey made the statement in apparent support of the latest attempt at forcing phone manufacturers to provide backdoor access to the authorities …...
