How the Apple Watch Already Has Success Designed in

When a new product category arrives from Apple, like the Apple Watch, it can be hard to size up the future prospects. Some observers only have a dim idea about how customers will embrace and exploit the product, and they don't yet see how Apple works to design success into the very DNA of any new product. In time, however, it all becomes clear, and the naysayers seldom turn out to be right.

This morning, Apple CEO Tim Cook emailed all employees in reflection of the upcoming third anniversary of the death of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs. “I hope you’ll take a moment to appreciate the many ways Steve made our world better,” Cook wrote in the internal memo. Here’s the full message, via several Apple employees:

Team,

Sunday will mark the third anniversary of Steve’s passing. I’m sure that many of you will be thinking of him on that day, as I know I will.

I hope you’ll take a moment to appreciate the many ways Steve made our world better. Children learn in new ways thanks to the products he dreamed up. The most creative people on earth use them to compose symphonies and pop songs, and write everything from novels to...

A security hole in OS X is allowing botnet malware to control thousands of Macs, says a Russian security firm, Dr. Web. The software has been given the label "Mac.BackDoor.iWorm;" although how it spreads is unknown, it operates in an unusual fashion, relying on comments left by the perpetrators in a Minecraft Reddit forum. These comments contain server addresses, and once iWorm connects to the IPs, commands can be sent out to the botnet....

Apple will face $350M trial over iPod DRM

tonystl

Apple will soon have to face a trial over accusations it used digital rights management, or DRM, to unlawfully maintain a lead in the iPod market, a federal judge has ruled. The plaintiffs' lawyers, representing a class of consumers who bought iPods between 2006 and 2009, are asking for $350 million.

Last week, US District Judge Yvonne Gonzales Rogers gave the green light (PDF) to sending a long-running antitrust lawsuit against Apple to trial. Plaintiffs in the case say that Apple used its FairPlay DRM system to "lock in" its customers and make it costly to switch to technology built by competitors, like Real Networks. As a result of this lock-in, Apple was able to overcharge its customers to the tune of tens of millions of dollars.

The sources add, however, that the event will also feature refreshed, possibly Retina-equipped iMacs, as well as OS X Yosemite. Apple has yet to confirm a release date for Yosemite, and the event could give the company an excuse to demonstrate previously unseen (or little-seen) features. New iMacs would presumably ship with the OS pre-installed....

Apple is reportedly set to announce new iPads and more at an event on October 16.

Andrew Cunningham

When it rains, it pours—Apple was silent for most of 2014 before dropping iOS 8, new iPhones, and the Apple Watch announcement on us last month. Now, Re/code says the company plans to hold an iPad-centric event at its town hall campus in Cupertino on October 16. Re/code (formerly AllThingsD) has a stellar track record for predicting Apple event dates, so we're inclined to believe them even though the event is falling on a Thursday instead of a Tuesday (as Apple events usually do).

New iPads will reportedly be the focus of the event, and it's not hard to guess what they'll look...

Rumor: Apple will unveil new iPads at an Oct 16 event

Despite the implausible rumor that the next-gen iPad Air may not debut until early 2015, Re/code reports on Friday that Apple will hold another special press event on October 16.

That’s a Thursday, which is not the most common day to have an Apple event, but no matter. Apple declined to officially confirm the information from Re/code’s sources, but the company typically starts inviting the press to these events about a week out, so we should know for sure as soon as next week.

According to Reuters, the network is looking at ideas around community discussions, perhaps similar to its thriving Groups section.

The Guardian:

The Greater Tokyo Metropolitan Area, composed of four prefectures, became the world’s pre-eminent megalopolis – some 35 million people by 2010, or 27% of Japan’s total population. It isn’t unusual for commuters to spend two hours getting to work every day on trains that exceed 150% of capacity.

When I was in Tokyo, one of the things I wanted to see and take pictures of was the Shinkansen bullet train. It’s a shame we don’t have the population densities to make these trains possible here in North America.

This might prove useful.

This week, Apple launched a web-based tool to check the Activation Lock status of iOS devices such as iPhones, iPads and iPod Touches. Here, users can go to a web site, enter the device’s IMEI number or serial number and see if the Find My iPhone feature has been located.

The Find My iPhone feature aims to prevent the purchase of stolen or disabled products and can feature an Activation Lock functionality, which prevents activation unless authorized by the user. The Activation Lock was introduced in iOS 7 & is enabled by default in iOS 8.

If you’ve tried the site or have any feedback as to the Activation Lock tool, let us know what you think in the comments.

It’s been a six month search, but Apple appears to have succeeded Katie Cotton with a new VP of worldwide communications. The new hire comes in the form of Steve Dowling, who, according to re/code, was tapped as interim head of public relations last week by CEO Tim Cook, who has been looking to put a friendlier, more approachable face on Apple’s public relations efforts.

Sources stated that a search outside the company proved fruitless and Dowling’s appointment has been framed to employees as an interim one and it’s said that Apple will continue to evaluate worthy outside candidates if one should pop up. Still, given that Apple CEO Tim Cook has officially put Dowling at the top of Apple’s PR organization suggests he could remain there.

The One Apple Watch Thing That Really Matters


While the cellphone nearly killed the wristwatch, the Apple Watch gizmo actually will revive it. In fact, I think the attention that the Apple Watch will bring to our wrists will spark sales of traditional watches. Why? I believe there is a latent desire to have a wristwatch -- to have the convenience of the time on your wrist without the need to pull out your smartphone and ignore the world around you. I think -- hope -- that the Apple Watch actually will lead people to slow down the movement of hand to pocket and pocket to face.

This year, Apple has bumped up the display size and released two models. We have the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and 5.5-Inch iPhone 6 Plus, but if you were paying attention to the rumor mill leading up to the launch, these two models probably weren’t a surprise.

Chinese media reports 4 million iPhone 6...

Yesterday, Chinese iPhone 6 reservations were stated as 2 million in six hours, a rather stunning statistic. Today, an update from the Chinese media press Tencent now says that reservations have topped 4 million. If all these reservations convert into orders, China alone may beat out the iPhone 6’s launch numbers, which — at the time — were considered to be impressive.

What’s more interesting is that Tencent claims it has exact order numbers from one of the main companies offering reservations. This gives some insight into how sales will be split between the 4.7 inch iPhone 6 and the 5.5 inch iPhone 6 Plus.

Taptic, haptics, and the body fantastic: The real...

The next user interface requires your body. You will literally feel signals chock-full of timely, contextual data delivered from all manner of touchscreens, gadgets and wearables. It’s called haptics, and while it’s been around for years, most notably in game controllers, the Apple Watch is set to deliver this technology to the masses.

Haptic technology—haptics—uses force upon the skin to deliver real-time tactile feedback. These physical sensations are created by tiny motors called actuators. Done right, haptics can mimic the feeling of a pin prick by a wearable that tracks your blood sugar, simulate the plucking of virtual guitar strings on a tablet screen, or re-create the physical recoil of a phaser from your favorite game controller.

Digitimes says iPhone 6 Plus accounting for 60% of...

A new report by Digitimes says that, contrary to public opinion, the iPhone 6 Plus is receiving more orders after beating initial demand expectations. The report says 60% of iPhone production is iPhone 6 Plus units, which may be interpreted as the iPhone 6 Plus being the more popular model. It also says that Foxconn is responsible for iPhone 6 Plus supply, whereas Pegatron is taking up iPhone 6 output.

However, Digitimes doesn’t have the best track record and this information sort of defies other evidence. Firstly, it is important to note that production does not correlate proportionally to demand. It was well publicised that the iPhone 6 Plus was supply-constrained in the runup to release. The burst of iPhone 6 Plus production now may simply be restoring the balance, clearing the backlog of orders.

Will Apple Lose Siri's Core Tech To Samsung?

An anonymous reader writes Apple bought Siri in 2010, but its core technology is owned by Nuance, maker of Dragon NaturallySpeaking. Now Samsung is looking to buy Nuance. From the article: "This past June, Nuance and Samsung began merger talks, but nothing came of it. At the time, the two companies said talks had 'slowed' due to 'complexities.' But they didn't say it was dead. Guess what? The talks are back on. The first hint came in June, after the company missed the quarterly projections. The Wall Street Journal then brought up the talks with Samsung and also noted the company had taken financial steps that could indicate a buyout was imminent. The company’s earnings report for June stated that Nuance was redeeming $250 million in 2027 convertible notes. By calling back the debt, that would save the future acquirer around $50 million from a debt-to-share conversion."

Apple is asking the major music labels to adjust their agreements with the iPhone maker to allow to go ahead with a planned revision of the subscription-based Beats Music service that may well portend a lowering of the monthly cost. The company apparently plans to introduce changes to the service next year, and wants to obtain new rights and features at a lower price as part of what it has in mind. Streaming services have recently gained in popularity at around the $10 per month mark, which is what Beats Music charges....

Watch rare footage of the Senators beating the...

Washington Post:

When eight cans of nitrate film arrived at the Library of Congress in August, a staffer began a routine inspection to see what sort of physical condition the film was in. Without even watching the footage, she quickly noticed a headline screaming out from one of the newsreels: “SENATORS WIN WORLD SERIES,” it said. “40,000 frantic fans see American Leaguers take 12-inning deciding game, 4 to 3.”

And when archivists from the Library’s Packard Campus for Audio Visual Conservation watched the reel, they found nearly four minutes of footage from that 1924 World Series, footage that somehow had remained in nearly perfect condition for 90 years. Bucky Harris hitting a home run, Walter Johnson pitching four innings of scoreless relief, Muddy Ruel scoring the winning run, fans storming Griffith Stadium’s field: It was all there, and it was all glorious.

Fascinating to see how much, and how little, the game has changed since this was shot.

Macstories:

From a visual perspective, Tweetbot 3.5 looks and works the same, keeping the foundation that Tapbots introduced with Tweetbot 3 last year. The app hasn’t changed considerably – it has evolved in expected ways and within the limitations imposed by Twitter’s API for third-party apps.

Glad to see this update to my favourite iPhone Twitter client. Can’t wait for the updated iPad version, too.

Elementary OS 'Freya' Is Worth the Wait


Elementary OS is a new style Linux distro that wraps its own sophisticated desktop design around a solid Ubuntu core. This distro first appeared in 2011. Its developers released the second major version, Elementary OS Luna, last year. The latest weeks-old beta release of what will be the third major version, called "Freya," shows that Elementary OS continues to offer Linux users a dependable alternative to popular desktop options. Despite its name, Elementary OS is anything but rudimentary.

The dynamic just got more interesting with news today that PayPal will be spun off from eBay in 2015, possibly opening the door to policy changes and realigned alliances.

Tim Cook names Steve Dowling interim head of Apple PR

After nearly six months of searching and deliberation, Apple appears to have settled on a successor to Katie Cotton, its former VP of worldwide corporate communications — and it’s not former White House Press Secretary Jay Carney. It’s Apple comms veteran Steve Dowling. Sources close to Apple tell Code/red that Dowling was tapped as interim head of public relations last week by CEO Tim Cook, who has been looking to put a friendlier, more approachable face on Apple’s public relations efforts.

Personally, I think this is the first step to Dowling getting the position full time.

EFF Raises Alarm Over ComputerCOP's Spying Ways

iOS 8 third party keyboards explained and reviewed

TidBITS:

One of the most intriguing features of iOS 8 is how Apple opened it up to third-party keyboards. Google’s Android mobile operating system has allowed developers to create custom system keyboards for years, which has led to interesting experiments, like Swype, which lets you draw on the keyboard to spell out words.

Now, keyboards like Swype are available for iOS 8, but how you enable and use them isn’t always obvious. Also of concern is how these third-party keyboards, some of which connect to the Internet, impact your privacy.

I have little to no interest in third party keyboards but I know a lot of you do. TidBITS does their usual good job of how to set up and use them and what to watch out for.
