The Internet Association -- a group of 40 top internet companies including Airbnb, Amazon, Facebook, Google, LinkedIn, Netflix, Twitter, Uber and Yahoo -- issued an open letter on Monday that congratulates Donald Trump on his victory and offers a long list of policy positions they hope he'll consider during his time as president. From a report on CNET:That list includes:Upholding Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act so internet companies can't get sued easily for things their users say or do online.Upholding Section 512 of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act so internet companies can't get easily sued if they quickly remove copyrighted content that users upload (such as infringing photos and YouTube videos).

Audioengine unveils the HD3 Wireless Music System

Audioengine has introduced the HD3 wireless music system with a variety of connection options: wireless or wired, digital or analog. 

Amplifiers are built inside the left speaker for an efficient mini stereo system. Audioengine has included connections for your phone, tablet, computer, and turntable - and you can even add a subwoofer.

Beholder game available at Steam for the Mac

Alawar and Warm Lamp Games have announced that their dystopia simulator Beholder is now available on Steam for Mac, Windows, and Linux systems. The game puts you in the shoes of Carl, a state-installed Landlord tasked by a totalitarian State to spy on his tenants. 

Here’s how the game is described: “As Carl, the landlord of an apartment house employed to serve the state, new tenants are moving in and out, and at first impression, your daily routine is simply to make the property attractive to its tenants. Little do they know that as a servant of the the state you have ulterior motives and will use any means available to observe, whether it's spying, eavesdropping or wiretapping as you build tenant profiles to report any illegal activities to the authorities.” 

“Inspired heavily by George Orwell’s groundbreaking 1984 the philosophical narrative of Beholder, opens up questions around issues of social...

Smartphone VR will claim over half of VR device...

A new Juniper Research study has forecast that there will be nearly 60 million smartphone virtual reality (VR) headsets shipped in 2021, an increase of around 240% on an expected 16.8 million this year. However, the lower price of these devices means they will only account for 7% of hardware revenue.

While millions of consumers are already using VR on smartphone-based devices like Google Cardboard and Samsung Gear VR, developers need to go beyond the simple experience-based apps currently available and offer compelling content to keep users engaged, according to the research group.

The new research,...

Apple patent is for ‘finger hover detective for...

Apple has been granted a patent (number 9,489,086) for “finger hover detection for improved typing” when using onscreen keyboards on devices such as iPhone and iPads.

According to the invention, typing on touchscreens is improved by “dynamically and automatically” positioning the desired home-row keys of an onscreen keyboard below the user's fingers while his/her fingers are hovering above the surface. Apple says that this reduces the need for the user to look at the onscreen keyboard while typing. 

The location of each of the user's fingers while hovering and/or resting is monitored. Correlation between the hover sensor data and touch sensor data increases the confidence level by which the system can determine which of the user's fingers were used to select a key, according to Apple. By determining which finger was used to make the selection, the system accurately disambiguates which letter the user intended to type.

The purpose of the invention? According to...

3D printing market to be worth $8.41 billion by 2020

Some folks think Apple will enter the 3D printer market. I'm dubious, but, whoever the vendors, someone's going to make money off the market if data from MarketsandMarkets is correct.

The research group predicts the 3D printing market will be worth US$8.41 billion by 2020. The elements behind the rapid upsurge in the market are the innovative and advanced technologies, customized products, governments funding, wide unexploited application market, rapid development of the products at a low cost, and less time-to-market, according to MarketsandMarkets

Europe is expected to surpass America in terms of the 3D Printing Market revenue by 2020. The foremost factors accountable for the expansion of 3D printing market include new and improved 3D printing technologies, wide range of materials (polymers, metals/alloys, sand, ceramics, living tissue), government funding, broad application scope, and increased...

Rumor round-up: iPads, iPhones, and AirPods

There’s lots of rumors/speculation making the rounds today about future iPhones, iPads, and the release of the AirPods. Here’s a summary:

In a note to clients — as noted by AppleInsider and MacRumors — Barclays Research says next year’s "iPhone 8" (or perhaps it will be the “iPhone 10” since it’s the 10th anniversary of the smartphone’s debut) "didn't sound 100% locked down" but will shift to "a bezel-less design with screen sizes getting larger and curved edges in the original envelope."

Based on information gleaned from the trip by the analysts, and discussions with component suppliers, the 5.8-inch iPhone is said to feature OLED technology, with the 5-inch model having a LCD display. Barclays doesn’t think the discrete home button will be removed on the next version of...

Defeating Malware With Its Own DNA

It's widely known that human DNA evidence has had a major impact in the criminal justice system. Now another kind of DNA may have a similar impact in the fight to eradicate malicious software.
Malware DNA, also known as "malware provenance," is the art and science of attributing elements of one object to another object. The technique has applications outside information security -- for example, in genetics, or to test the authorship of student papers. One way malware writers avoid detection of their programs is to craft polymorphic attacks. They dynamically change the code in their malware just enough to confound antivirus programs.

Until then, there's plenty else to talk about, like the confusion over what is supported by the new Macs' Thunderbolt 3 ports.

“Personally I think the idea that fake news on Facebook, which is a very small amount of the content, influenced the election in any way—I think is a pretty crazy idea. Voters make decisions based on their lived experience,” Zuckerberg said in an interview at the Techonomy 2016 conference in Half Moon Bay, California.

Video editor’s hands-on review of new 15″ Touch Bar...

Thomas Grove Carter, video editor at Trim Editing in London:

On the 27th October Apple unveiled their new line of MacBook Pros. Since then half of what I read online seems to be “Professionals” (those guys), telling me it’s not Pro at all, not Pro enough or not the right kind of Pro. How many of these people have even touched the new devices?

Very few.

I’ve been using the new 15” MacBook Pro (with Touch Bar) for the last week or so for actual work, so here’s my “Professional” opinion.


First off, It’s really fast. I’ve been using the MacBook Pro with the new version of FCP X and cutting 5k ProRes material all week, it’s buttery smooth. No matter what you think the specs say, the fact is the software and hardware are so well integrated it tears strips off “superior spec’d” Windows counterparts in the real world.


The version I’ve been using is powerful enough on the graphics front to power two 5K displays, which is an insane...

Here they come. Looking forward to a wave of video reviews, getting to see what Touch Bar can do in real life.

Apple is looking to increase the size of its Siri team in Cambridge, according to sources with knowledge of the matter.

In a bid to make Siri that bit more useful to iPhone, iPad and Mac owners, Apple intends to hire at least half a dozen software engineers in Cambridge in the coming months.


Apple’s Cambridge office is home to many of the employees from VocalIQ — a voice recognition startup that was spun out from the university and acquired by Apple in 2015 for up to $100 million (£80 million).

Ars Technica: Spotify writing massive amounts of...

Dan Goodwin, writing for Ars Technica:

For almost five months—possibly longer—the Spotify music streaming app has been assaulting users’ storage devices with enough data to potentially take years off their expected lifespans. Reports of tens or in some cases hundreds of gigabytes being written in an hour aren’t uncommon, and occasionally the recorded amounts are measured in terabytes. The overload happens even when Spotify is idle and isn’t storing any songs locally.


Spotify officials hadn’t responded to Ars questions more than two days after they were sent. According to comments left in the Spotify forum in the past 24 hours, the bug has been fixed in version 1.0.42, which is in the process of being rolled out. The update remains unavailable to many users, this reporter included. And that means Spotify’s drive-assaulting behavior continues unabated for many.

Sounds like, if you use Spotify, get the update or disable it.

With live video streaming now a standard feature on platforms like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, it was only a matter of time before Instagram joined in. CEO Kevin Systrom has now told the Financial Times (via Engadget) that it will be adding live streaming to the app.

Live is really exciting for us. I think it can enhance what we’re doing. If I’m trying to strengthen relationships with someone I love, them streaming video to me live would be an amazing way to be closer to them.

Apple releases iBooks StoryTime for tvOS 3

Apple has released iBooks StoryTime for the fourth generation Apple TV. It’s a free tvOS app that offers curated children's books with Read-Aloud navigation and illustrations.

iBooks StoryTime, as you might guess from the title, ties into the iBooks app and iBookStore. When Read-Aloud narration is turned on, book pages flip automatically as readers progress through a title. With the feature turned off, parents and kids can flip through the book using Siri Remote.

To promote the app, Apple is offering users a free download of Dora’s Big Buddy Race Read-Along Storybook. Other titles (but they’re not free) include Green Eggs and Ham, The Little Red Hen, Goodnight Moon, Big Brother Daniel, and more.

Bailout plan for Japan Display may give Apple a...

It had been thought that Apple would only have two suppliers to choose from when it came to its rumored switch to OLED displays for at least some iPhones next year: Samsung and LG. A third contender emerged in June, when it was reported that Sharp’s OLED panel business would be up-and-running by next year, and it now seems possible that Japan Display will also be in the running.

Rumor: AirPods may arrive come mid-November

Back in late October, Apple delayed the launch of its much-anticipated AirPods, the company stating that it needed “a little more time” before the units were ready for prime time.

Since then, the headphones have been listed as “currently unavailable” on Apple’s web site.

Previous rumors had the AirPods as arriving in January 2017, suggesting they will not be available in time for this year’s holiday shopping season.

Perhaps more optimistically, an employee at Apple reseller Conrad has reportedly told a customer it will receive AirPods stock on November 17, and make them available to purchase by November 18-19.

Here’s the quote as it stands:

Hello, I have just talked with an employee of the Conrad Online Store, since I am there on 14.10 the AirPods ordered and I wanted...

Apple improves shipping delivery estimates for some...

The first of the Touch Bar-equpped MacBook Pro units look as if they’re about to ship on Friday, November 11th.

A number of users have reported that Apple has started changing the status of several preorders from “processing” to “preparing for shipment”, which typically happens in the days before it ships and delivers orders to customers.

Reports from the first preorder customers estimated a ship date of November 11th, while others were quickly notified that their orders had been pushed back 2-3 weeks to 4-5 weeks after the units became available via the Apple online storefront.

That means that the first MacBook Pro with Touch Bar models could arrive in customers’ hands as soon as this...

Spotify Is Writing Massive Amounts of Junk Data To...

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Ars Technica: For almost five months -- possibly longer -- the Spotify music streaming app has been assaulting users' storage devices with enough data to potentially take years off their expected lifespans. Reports of tens or in some cases hundreds of gigabytes being written in an hour aren't uncommon, and occasionally the recorded amounts are measured in terabytes. The overload happens even when Spotify is idle and isn't storing any songs locally. The behavior poses an unnecessary burden on users' storage devices, particularly solid state drives, which come with a finite amount of write capacity. Continuously writing hundreds of gigabytes of needless data to a drive every day for months or years on end has the potential to cause an SSD to die years earlier than it otherwise would. And yet, Spotify apps for Windows, Mac, and Linux have engaged in this data assault since at least the middle of June, when multiple users reported the problem in...

Spotify says that a fix is on the way for a bug that results in the Mac, Windows and Linux apps writing massive amounts of data to SSDs even when the app is simply sitting idle.

ArsTechnica highlighted the problem that appears to have existed for at least five months.

For almost five months—possibly longer—the Spotify music streaming app has been assaulting users’ storage devices with enough data to potentially take years off their expected lifespans.

Splash44 Case offers good all-around protection for...

If you need to protect your iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus from water and other liquids, Dog & Bone’s Splash44 Case is a viable option. 

Specially designed membranes and the charging port plug help protect the smartphone from liquid damage. The Splash44 utilizes a two-part design, employing a bumper and tempered glass impact screen, which makes it not only water resistant, but also “drop proof” up to 6.6 feet.

Installing the Splash44 is simple. Just place your iPhone 7 or 7 Plus inside and secure the glass. The case is less than 10mm thick, so it allows you to enjoy the thin styling of the Apple smartphone while providing decent, all-round protection. It also allows complete access to the ports and controls on your iPhone. 

The Splash 44 is available in Clear/Orange, Clear/Black, Clear/Pink, and Clear/Purple flavors. The iPhone 7 model costs $54.95; the Phone 7 Plus version is $59.95.

How to merge iPhoto and Photo libraries on a Mac

Starting with OS X Yosemite 10.10.3, Photos replaced iPhotos on the Mac. If, like my wife, you kept using iPhotos before easing into Photos, you’ve probably got two different photo libraries on your Mac, which can be a pain and a storage hog. Thankfully, you can merge ‘em. To migrate another photo library manually: 

  • Quit Photos. 
  • Hold down the Option key and open Photos.
  • Select the library you want to open and then click Choose Library. If the library you want isn’t listed, click Other Library. Navigate to the library you want, and click Open.

And you should merge the libraries. Photos uses the same master files as iPhoto and the late, lamented Aperture, so you won’t need double the space to run both apps.

Don’t delete the iPhotos library until you’re sure that all your pics are in Photos. However, you can go ahead and free up hard disk space by moving the iPhoto library to an external drive and deleting it from your Mac. That way...

Pro Video Editor Says MacBook Pro Beats Out Superior...

An anonymous reader quotes a report from 9to5Mac: Reviews for Apple's new MacBook Pro have yet to officially go live, despite a couple false starts earlier this week. Those should arrive any day now ahead of a retail release for the machine, but one pro video editor today published his early hands-on review after using the new 15-inch model in a real-world setting. The review also aims to address some of the early criticisms of the new MacBook Pro from pros, showing how the machine held up in a real-world, professional environment. The author Thomas Grove Carter works at Trim Editing, a studio in London where he edits "high end commercials, music videos and films" using Final Cut Pro. The review specifically focuses on the experience using the machine in a professional video editor's daily workflow. Carter's conclusion is that the new 15-inch model he was using (he doesn't detail specs), is more than capable of handling daily editing in FCP X with 5K ProRes footage. He also notes...
