The worldwide wearables market reached a new all-time high as shipments reached 33.9 million units in the fourth quarter of 2016 (4Q16), growing 16.9% year over year. Shipments for the entire year grew 25% as new vendors entered the market and previous champions refreshed their product lineups. 

The year came to a close with 102.4 million devices shipped according to data from the International Data Corporation (IDC) Worldwide Quarterly Wearable Device Tracker. The Apple Watch Series 1 and Series 2 proved to be a “magnificent success for the company as it was the company's best quarter ever in the wearables market,” according to the research group. 

The lower entry price point and the inclusion of GPS on the Series 2 along with a completely revamped user interface have helped the company grow its presence, according to IDC. Apple...

Patent report: retractable displays, language...

Future iPhones and iPads — and perhaps even Macs — could have displays that fold like paper. Apple has filed for a patent (number 20170060183) for “electronic devices with retractable displays.”

In the patent filing, the company says the use of rigid display substrates can cause displays and electronic devices to be more bulky than desired. Although devices can be reduced in size by using smaller displays, this may result in viewing areas that aren’t as large as desired. Apple thinks flexible, retractable displays could be the answer.

In other patent news, future iPhones and Apple Watches could translate languages on-the-fly. Apple has been granted a patent (number 20170060853) for a “mobile device having human language translation capability with positional feedback.”

In the patent filing, Apple notes that a basic need for most people when traveling in a foreign country is human language translation. For example, you may want...

Rumor: Apple may release 128-gigabyte iPhone SE...

The iPhone SE could be upgraded to a 128-gigabyte model.

An internal memo circulating through U.S. retailer Target has indicated that some Target stores are being told to return certain iPhone SE units to Apple.

The memo requests that stores return six unlocked 16- and 64-gigabyte models —in all four colors —as well as two Sprint configurations. An anonymous worker meanwhile stated that her shop hasn’t received any iPhone SE shipments since before the iPhone 7 was announced in September.

One possibility is that Apple is reclaiming unsold inventory to repurpose it, rather than sell it at a discount. Sales have likely fallen off, as Apple is still charging at least $399 for the device despite it offering specifications like a 2015 A9 processor and a default 16 gigabytes of storage. The iPhone 7 and 7 Plus come with at least 32 gigabytes, and use faster A10 chips— but also cost at least $250 more.

A current rumor has stated that Apple is preparing a 128-...

Yahoo discloses third data breach in six months

The hits just keep on coming.

Yahoo today revealed a third major hack, wherein some 32 million accounts have been accessed by intruders over the past two years. These accounts are in addition to the accounts affected by the two data breaches the company had previously disclosed.

The accounts were apparently compromised via forged cookie files. Yahoo has stated that the accounts were accessed by the “same state-sponsored actor beloved to be responsible for the 2014 hack.” The 2014 hack was the one that affected at least 500 million accounts.

“Based on the investigation, we believe an unauthorized third party accessed the company’s proprietary code to learn how to forge certain cookies,” Yahoo said in its latest annual filing.

To remedy the issue, Yahoo says that it has invalidated those cookies so that they cannot be used to access user accounts any longer.

Finally, Yahoo also announced today that it would not be awarding CEO Marissa Mayer a cash...

Sorry, Apple, the Headphone Jack Isn't Going...

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Rob Pegoraro via Yahoo Finance: Two things unite almost every phone on display here at Mobile World Congress 2017: Android and a headphone jack. Apple doesn't exhibit its wares at this trade show, so the domination of Google's operating system is predictable. But the headphone jack's persistence did not look so inevitable when Apple cut it from the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus last September. Lenovo's Motorola subsidiary had already shipped a phone without a headphone hack, the Moto Z, and Apple's influence over the rest of the smartphone industry remains formidable -- indeed, within months, the Chinese firm LeEco had debuted a lineup of Android phones devoid of headphone jacks. As my colleague David Pogue predicted in a post approving Apple's move: "Other brands worldwide will be following suit." The hardware on display here at the world's largest mobile tech conference, though, suggests otherwise. Two days of walking around the show floor...

Horcrux Email Backup works automatically and...

By Aaron Lee

Questions about data sovereignty, data security and cloud computing may seem most appropriate for corporations and governments, but the issues are important for every person who has an email account. Technichor's Horcrux Email Backup is a Mac app that lets email users automatically keep their data rather than surrendering it to third party services. And it’s useful because it runs in the background, so you don’t have to give it a lot of thought.

Most people who use email use one of the major third-party providers like Appl Mail or Gmail. The data which is stored with these providers actually belongs to the provider, not to the user. As a result, some folks have been surprised to discover that they can lose access to their data without any recourse.

Horcrux is a background app that takes daily snapshots of email account state similar to Apple's Time Machine. The app allows users to browse the emails and undelete specific emails....

BrianFagioli quotes a report from BetaNews: As more and more consumers buy Mac computers, evildoers will have increased incentive to write malware for macOS. Luckily, users of Apple's operating system that choose to use Google Chrome for web surfing will soon be safer. You see, the search giant is improving its Safe Browsing initiative to better warn macOS users of malicious websites and attempts to alter browser settings. "As part of this next step towards reducing macOS-specific malware and unwanted software, Safe Browsing is focusing on two common abuses of browsing experiences: unwanted ad injection, and manipulation of Chrome user settings, specifically the start page, home page, and default search engine. Users deserve full control of their browsing experience and Unwanted Software Policy violations hurt that experience," says Google. The search giant further explains, "The recently released Chrome Settings API for Mac gives developers the tools to make sure users stay in...

Court Throws Out $533 Million Verdict Against Apple...

An anonymous reader quotes a report from 9to5Mac: The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit made a decision today to throw out the verdict of a two-year old legal case against Apple based on data storage patents. The original verdict reached by a Texas jury stuck Apple with $533 million in damages. Smartflash LLC targeted game developers who largely all settled out of court in 2014, but Apple defended its use of data storage management and payment processing technology in court. Reuters has more on the new developments: "The trial judge vacated the large damages award a few months after a Texas federal jury imposed it in February 2015, but the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit said on Wednesday the judge should have ruled Smartflash's patents invalid and set aside the verdict entirely. A unanimous three-judge appeals panel said Smartflash's patents were too 'abstract' and did not go far enough in describing an actual invention to warrant protection."

Hands-on with CalDigit’s 1- and 2-meter Thunderbolt...

Several of the Thunderbolt 3 accessories that I’ve been able to test since the release of the 2016 MacBook Pro have come with Thunderbolt 3 cables. However, most of the pack-in cables are of the shorter variety, usually around 0.5m long.

The reason for this is because cheaper passive cables support full Thunderbolt 3 bandwidth at lengths up to 0.5m long, while passive cables over 0.5m max out at 20 Gbps data transfer. In order to have a longer cable with full 40 Gbps data transfer, the cable must be of the more expensive active variety.

CalDigit sent over two long active Thunderbolt 3 cables — a 1-meter cable and a 2-meter cable — and each are capable of full data transfer and can deliver up to 100 watts of power to charge any 2016...

In addition, Spotify Hi-Fi could offer one free vinyl record and other discounts on limited-edition vinyls.

Spotify has not confirmed when or if its Hi-Fi tier will eventually be rolled out as an official option to all users. When people who got the prompt tried to upgrade they received an error message or were told that the service was not yet available in their area, signaling that Spotify could just be testing whether there's enough interest and what the right price point should be.

Nobody Likes Uber Anymore, Recent Reviews and...

Alison Griswold, writing for Quartz: The public is not happy with Uber. Incensed by allegations of sexism and harassment in the company's corporate halls, people are once again #deleting Uber, while one-star ratings and withering critiques of its service are piling up in Apple's iOS App Store. From Jan. 1 through Feb. 22, Uber accumulated 4,479 one-star reviews from US users in the iOS App Store, according to data from analytics firm App Annie (the highest possible rating is five stars). Several of the most recent reviews cite the horrifying and explosive account of sexual harassment published by former Uber engineer Susan Fowler over the weekend. "Was harassed and scammed by an Uber driver for two hours in the car," reviewer "Jorwl" wrote on Feb. 20. But far more reviewers have another gripe: Uber's apparent disregard for user privacy. The monthly volume of one-star ratings for Uber in the App Store first spiked last November, after the company redesigned its app and infringed on...

External Link: YouTube TV to Offer Another...

Google will soon be competing with the likes of Sling TV, PlayStation Vue, and DirecTV NOW. Set to debut within a few months in a new standalone app, the $35-per-month YouTube TV service will feature about three dozen channels, including ABC, CBS, NBC, and Fox, as well as cable stalwarts like ESPN and Fox News. Google says the service will be designed primarily for mobile but will also work with computers and its Chromecast streaming devices. It’s slated to have a cloud-based DVR with unlimited storage and a Google AI-powered recommendation system. We’re guessing YouTube TV will be limited to U.S. viewers, but no details on international possibilities were mentioned.

Twitter's escalating its fight against abusive behavior once again by introducing new tools and officially announcing older ones

The company confirmed that it’s taking punitive actions against harassers, which were spotted in the wild earlier in February. When Twitter’s algorithms discover an abusive tweeter, the company will temporarily reduce that person’s reach. Anyone who doesn’t follow that user won’t be able to see their tweets for a set cool down period, such as 12 hours.

If anyone feels they get hit with a reach limit when they shouldn’t, Twitter asks for patience. “We aim to only act on accounts when we’re confident...[are]..abusive. Since these tools are new we will sometimes make mistakes, but know that we are actively working to improve and iterate on them everyday,” the company said in a...

External Link: Apple Kicks Provisioning Profile...

Provisioning profiles have been expiring recently, causing popular apps like 1Password and PDFpen to stop working suddenly. Apple has “solved” this problem by making it so that Developer ID provisioning profiles generated after 22 February 2017 will be valid for a whopping 18 years, regardless of the expiration date of the associated certificate! That puts the problem off for so long that only institutions and individuals trying to keep historical systems functional will be likely to suffer. After all, some of us still have decades-old Macs that can run software of the 1990s without difficulty.

Smartphone volumes expected to rebound this year

Coming off the smartphone market's lowest year-over-year growth of 2.5% in 2016, a new forecast from the International Data Corporation (IDC) Worldwide Quarterly Mobile Phone Tracker shows worldwide smartphone shipments rebounding in 2017 and beyond. 

While growth is expected to remain in the low single digits, the research group predicts shipment volumes to grow 4.2% in 2017 and 4.4% in 2018 with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.8% over the 2016-2021 forecast. Shipments are forecast to reach 1.53 billion units in 2017 and grow to 1.77 billion in 2021.

From a platform perspective, IDC doesn't expect much change throughout the forecast with Android accounting for roughly 85% of smartphone shipments and Apple making up the rest. The outlook for Microsoft-based smartphones remains virtually nonexistent given the lack of...

Feature Request: Add a bar tab/restaurant bill...

Bar tabs are one of those conveniences that can sometimes feel like they’re more trouble than they’re worth. In theory, it’s super convenient to hand over your card at the beginning of the evening, allow anyone in a group to order by quoting a tab number or waving a bar card, then settle up at the end of the night.

In practice, though, there are drawbacks – not least, security. You are leaving your card unattended and out of sight for what may be hours. It would take just seconds for any of the bar staff to slip it out of its slot, photograph both sides and then have all your card details, including the three-digit security number.

There’s also the hassle factor of paying at the end of the evening – usually at the same time everyone else is trying to do the same thing. Mastercard has come up with an interesting solution to both problems through an app, and it’s an approach I’d love to see offered in Apple...

macOS and iOS market share both down in February

According to the latest market share survey from NetMarketShare, the market share for both macOS and iOS was down in February.

According to the report, among desktop operating systems, macOS had 6.19% of the global market share in February, down from from 6.32% percent in January (that’s global market share; in the U.S. it’s over 13%). April 2016’s 9.2% was an all-time high, according to NetMarketShare’s measurements. Windows remains dominant with 91.76% as of February.

iOS had 29.55% of the mobile operating system market share in February, up from 32.03% in January. This compares to 66.71% for Android, 1.481% for Windows Phone, and 1.09% for Java ME. The all-time high for iOS was in July 2012 with 65.94%.

NetMarketShares’ monthly surveys don’t measure market share in terms of computer systems sold. Instead they sample data from visitors to some 40,000 web sites operated by their clients. And note that...
