Apple’s ecosystem

Horace Dediu has a look at iTunes growth after Apple reported its earnings. I’ve long held that it’s the ecosystem that Apple’s competitors can’t easily copy. The company was very stealthy in the early 2000s in building the infrastructure for what we have now with the App Store, music and video delivery. It all just syncs and works—that’s what consumers want to happen. I’m not saying it doesn’t need work, but even as it sits, Apple’s ecosystem is pretty remarkable.

“Mac Mini (Mid 2014)” briefly appears in Apple...

Proof of a new Mac Mini or simple misprint? Apple's not saying.

Andrew Cunningham

An interesting development today for people watching for an update to Apple's Mac Mini desktop: Apple's support document for its Boot Camp drivers and software for Windows briefly listed a heretofore unannounced "Mac Mini (Mid 2014)." 9to5Mac first spotted the entry after it was added to the page yesterday, and we were able to grab our own screenshot to confirm before it was removed earlier today. If the entry points to a real system and is not simply mistyped, we could see a new Mac Mini any day between now and the end of August—Apple reserves the "mid" label for systems released in the late spring or in the summer. Macs released in September or later normally get the "late" label...

2014 Mac mini appears on Apple support page

A "mid 2014" Mac mini is now listed on an Apple support document for Boot Camp. The page makes no mention of other details about the computer, other than it only supporting 64-bit Windows 7 and 8 versions of the Boot Camp utility, which allows Macs to run Windows on a separate partition. The Mac mini has been one of Apple's most neglected products, having last been updated in late 2012. Even the Mac Pro was refreshed in December 2013....

Following a leak earlier this week that appeared to show an upcoming photo messaging app from Instagram, today the app officially launches in a short list of countries abroad (via TechCrunch). The app, which is reportedly a Snapchat competitor of sorts with one-tap photo messaging, is rolling out today for users in Singapore, South Africa, and New Zealand on both iOS and Android.

While the app is only available in the countries mentioned above in its initial launch, Instagram reportedly plans to roll out the app to a bigger audience, including in the US, after getting feedback on the experience.

Two Apple acquisitions aim to help improve book,...

Apple’s been on a bit of an acquisition kick over the last couple years, and it seems to be continuing apace. This week, the company has confirmed the acquisition of two separate firms, both of which may help improve the company’s algorithms for recommending content.

Over the weekend, Re/code reported that Apple was aiming to buy Swell, an app described as “Pandora for talk radio.” Among the company's partners: ABC News Radio, PRI, NPR, and TED. The service focused on figuring out what users like to listen to and then suggesting similar content. (In and of itself, it’s not different from the NPR One app we recently reviewed, albeit with more sources.) Re/code also reported that the deal would be worth $30 million. As of Tuesday, the Swell app is no longer available...

Bubblews Will Give You a Penny for Your Thoughts


Bubblews, a social media platform that offers to pay users for their posts, last week moved out of its testing phase, which began in 2012. It emerged with a new look designed to attract users who might be dissatisfied with other social media offerings. Bubblews is attempting to build a self-sustaining ecosystem in which users who create engaging posts are paid for their work. It prides itself on being different from Facebook and Twitter, both of which compensate only their relatively small groups of company employees.

Apple Updates MacBook Pro with Retina Display

Apple today updated MacBook Pro with Retina display with faster processors, double the memory in both entry-level configurations, and a new, lower starting price for the top-of-the-line 15-inch notebook. Apple also lowered the starting price of the non-Retina 13-inch MacBook Pro to $1,099. “People love their MacBook Pro because of the thin and light, aluminum unibody design, beautiful Retina display, all day battery life, and deep integration with OS X,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “The MacBook Pro with Retina display gets even better with faster processors, more memory, more affordable configurations, and a free upgrade to OS X Yosemite this fall.” MacBook Pro with Retina display and MacBook Pro are available through the Apple Online Store, Apple’s retail stores, and select Apple Authorized Resellers.

How analysts get all those numbers; Hint, they make...

A former IDC researcher:

“So, the mantra became, preserve the growth rates; to hell with the actual numbers. Even the growth rates are fiction. The fudge is in the “others” category, which is used as a plug to make the numbers work out. In fairness, we did do survey work, calling around, and attending white box conferences and venues to try to get a feel for that market, but in the end, the process was political. I used to tell customers which parts of the data they could trust, essentially the major vendors by form factor and region. The rest was garbage.”

So they make shit up.

Mid-2014 Mac mini listed on Apple Support page, but...

 

Apple seems to have inadvertently referenced a new model of Mac mini on an Apple Support page. The page was last modified yesterday, presumably to include information on the new MacBook Pro’s but instead lists “Mac mini (Mid 2014)” as a supported machine. There is a possibility that this is simply a human error on Apple’s part, of course, confusing the MacBook Pro and the Mac mini updates. There haven’t really been rumors of a new Mac mini being in the works, but due to the relative unimportance of the product in the Mac lineup, it is not of the question for it to have slid under the radar.

Apple Retail Out Almost $310K in Scam, Suspect...

Apple lost US$309,768 in merchandise out of its retail stores in 16 states thanks to Sharron Laverne Parrish Jr. and a debit card scam. Authorities have arrested Mr. Parrish, and thanks to his clever social engineering, Apple will likely be left holding the bill.

The Mac Observer Spin: Forced code scams happen more often than you'd think, so it isn't surprising Mr. Parrish was able to make off with so much before getting caught. Apple will most likely change its policies to require employees to call banks on declined cards instead of leaving that in customer's hands

Since suppliers often experience such surges in association with Apple orders, it could mean that iWatch production has suffered setbacks.

Oyvind Solstad

When the US Supreme Court decided the Alice v.

The fallout from this year's biggest patent decision is still taking shape, and it won't be affecting just fly-by-night patents owned by trolls. Defendants in corporate patent battles are hoping to use the Supreme Court decision to their advantage as well. Now, Alice v. CLS has come up in Apple v.

A 24-Year-Old Scammed Apple 42 Times In 16 Different...

redletterdave (2493036) writes "Sharron Laverne Parrish Jr., 24, allegedly scammed Apple not once, but 42 times, cheating the company out of more than $300,000 — and his scam was breathtakingly simple. According to a Secret Service criminal complaint, Parrish allegedly visited Apple Stores and tried to buy products with four different debit cards, which were all closed by his respective financial institutions. When his debit card was inevitably declined by the Apple Store, he would protest and offer to call his bank — except, he wasn't really calling his bank. So he would allegedly offer the Apple Store employees a fake authorization code with a certain number of digits, which is normally provided by credit card issuers to create a record of the credit or debit override. But that's the problem with this system: as long as the number of digits is correct, the override code itself doesn't matter."

The Apple TV might not yet rival the hundreds of channels on your cable box, but that’s not to say they aren’t getting close. On Tuesday morning, the company added a few more options to its set-top streaming box, including some aimed at specific countries.

Two new major networks dominate the offerings, at least in the U.S. First is a CNBC channel, which streams programs from the business network in real time, as well as providing access to on demand clips of its many shows.

The second is Fox Now, which offers full episodes from the network’s broadcast shows, including the likes of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Sleepy Hollow, and New Girl. It also sports bonus content, and a personalized home screen, complete with recommendations based on your viewing preferences.

The entry-level 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro also now starts with 8GB of RAM, like the mid-range and high-range models, instead of 4GB.

Now the Retina MacBook Pro line is getting in on the kind-of-refreshed fun with some mild spec bumps that don't radically change the models released back in 2013.

Let's begin with the 15-inch models. The base prices remain the same across the board for these, but you now get the maximum 16GB of RAM standard with the 15-...

Stanford Researchers Build a Better Battery


A new way to extend battery life would allow smartphones to last three to four times longer on a single charge, Stanford University researchers have found. A team led by Yi Cui, professor of materials science and engineering, has developed pure metal anode prototypes, which differ from the lithium-ion batteries seen in most devices. The team's anode is close to a commercially viable product, but we are still some time away from seeing these battery designs in our smartphones, Cui said.

Florida man scams Apple retail stores out of $309,768

In a rather offbeat and somewhat bizarre crime story, a Tampa Bay man last week was arrested after managing to scam Apple out of $309,768.

According to the Tampa Bay Times, 24-year old Sharron Laverne Parrish Jr. frequented Apple retail stores 42...

Apple Drops Samsung Patent Appeal, Ends Injunction...

Apple is throwing in the towel on its efforts to get an injunction blocking the sale of several Samsung smartphones related to their first patent infringement trial. Apple told the court on Monday that it is dropping its cross appeal in the case and now will instead focus on winning an injunction in their second mobile device infringement trial.

The Mac Observer Spin: It seems that -- at least on some level -- both Apple and Samsung are getting tired of their ongoing patent infringement fight, although not tired enough to find some sort of agreement. For Samsung, giving up doesn't make sense considering its drag-it-out-in-court tactics are working just fine.

The ridiculously simple con that allowed a fraudster...

You wouldn’t think it would be easy to use a debit card on a closed account to scam an Apple Store out of around $7200’s worth of kit, but that’s what a 24-year-old fraudster is alleged to have done not just once but a total of 42 times – netting a total haul worth $309,768.

The Tampa Bay Times reports that the East Tampa resident Sharron Parrish used an absurdly simple method to persuade Apple Store staff to override payment terminals after his transactions were declined … 

When a card transaction is declined by a bank, sales clerks have the option of phoning the bank to see whether they will authorize the transaction. If the bank agrees, they issue the...

While the talk and Q&A is mostly focused on the physical design of the vehicles,Verdura answers a question about the GUI design briefly at 29:14, queued above, in which he notes that Tesla’s UI design team is largely made up of Apple alumni.

Verdura next talks about the design process and how everything goes through CEO Elon Musk at the end – something that should remind people of how Steve Jobs’ Apple worked.

Whole talk here.

From 9to5Toys.com:

Apple quietly released an updated lineup of Retina MacBook Pros earlier this morning and as a result, previous generation (which, let’s be honest, aren’t a big step down) refurbished models have received notable price drops.

At the low end, the October 2012 (first generation) 13-inch model has dropped $59, which has made it the first refurbished Retina MacBook Pro with a 1 year Apple warranty to dip below $1,000. This pricing isn’t completely unprecedented as we have ...

Apple bumps MacBook Pro processors across the line

Been holding out for the latest update to the MacBook Pro line? Hold out no longer: Apple on Tuesday issued a small speed bump to its professional notebook line, bringing new processors to the laptops.

The upgrades see the intro-level and mid-range 13-inch Retina MacBook Pros going from a 2.4GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 with a Turbo Boost of up to 2.9GHz to a 2.6GHz dual-core i5 with a Turbo Boost of up to 3.1GHz; the high-end 13-inch meanwhile goes from a 2.6GHz dual-core i5 to a 2.8GHz dual-core i5 (its Turbo Boost, which previously reached 3.1GHz, now gets up to 3.3GHz). The entry-level 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro also now starts with 8GB of RAM, like the mid-range and high-range models, instead of 4GB. Storage remains the same for all three models at 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB of flash storage, respectively.

SmartBrick Bluetooth LEGO controller replaces infra-...

If you your kids play with LEGO Technic, and the standard infra-red receiver feels just a little 1990s, a new Kickstarter project has the answer. The SmartBrick is a Bluetooth LE receiver that forms a direct swap for the IR one, enabling you to control your hi-tech LEGO projects with your iPhone.

The SmartBrick has four ports, enabling it to control four functions, and if that’s not enough you can control up to 16 SmartBricks from the app, providing a total of 64 controls. Because it’s Bluetooth LE, you can embed the controller inside your model, and you get around 300 feet of range – and even control your device over the Internet.

The app allows you to choose the remote control profile you’d like for your device. Joystick, gamepad and gyroscopic controls are offered as standard, and you can create your own custom...

Apple refreshes retina MacBook Pro, drops price

ZDNet:

Prior to this upgrade the base version of the 13.3-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display featured a 2560-by-1600 resolution at 227 pixels per inch retina display, 2.4GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 CPU, 4GB of 1600MHz DDR3L RAM, and 128GB of PCIe-based flash storage, and it had a price tag of $1,299. For the same price this model now comes with a 2.6 GHz Intel Core i5 chip and 8GB of memory.

The base version of the beefier 15.4-inch with Retina display model came with a 2880-by-1800 resolution at 220 pixels per inch display, 2.0GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 CPU, 8GB of 1600MHz DDR3L RAM, and 256GB of PCIe-based flash storage, all of which would have set you back $1,999. Following the refresh this now comes with a 2.2GHz CPU and 16GB of RAM.

The price of the high-end MBPr has dropped from US$2,599 to US$2,499.

Two years after the first Apple-Samsung patent trial, the big winner in that case -- Apple -- has dropped a motion to cross-appeal a portion of Judge Lucy Koh's final verdict. The action means that the company has officially given up hope of seeing any product bans on the 23 Samsung products found guilty of copying Apple technology, though the matter is largely moot as none of the products are still offered for sale anyway. Despite the clear victory in the jury trial, Judge Koh twice refused to issue sales injunctions on the infringing Samsung products....

In this case, Apple has decided not to seek an injunction against certain Samsung devices from its first trial in 2012.
