Apple Paid Nokia $2 Billion To Escape Fight Over Old...

An anonymous reader shares a report: Apple's latest patent spat with Nokia resulted in a $2 billion up-front payment from the iPhone maker, a colossal sum that seems to indicate Apple was eager to avoid a protracted and ugly dispute that could rival the one it had with Samsung. The new details of the settlement, which was first announced back in May without the disclosure of a financial amount or the new licensing terms, were spotted in Nokia's second quarter earnings release. "We got a substantial upfront cash payment of $2 billion from Apple, strengthening further our cash position. As said earlier, our plans is to provide more details on the intended use of cash in conjunction with our Q3 earnings," reads the official transcript of Nokia's quarterly earnings call with investors yesterday. Neither Nokia nor Apple have disclosed the terms of the new licensing deal, including whether it involves recurring payments or how many years it will be in place.

Appocalypse Now - How iOS11 Will Kill Some Of Your...

Ronan Price, writing for Independent: The app-ocalypse is coming and almost no one knows it. Apologies for the dreadful pun but, in about six to eight weeks' time, hundreds of thousands of older apps for iPhone and iPad will cease to work when Apple updates its iOS software to version 11. Businesses and consumers who rely on these elderly apps and update to iOS11 without knowing the consequences face a rude awakening. Their difficulty ranges from mere inconvenience that a useful app no longer functions to the complete loss of valuable data buried in a piece of obsolete software. Apple began signalling two years ago that it was signing the death warrant for older apps when it moved iOS to 64-bit software - essentially a more secure, faster and technologically advanced version that replaced the previous 32-bit code. First, Apple encouraged developers to rewrite their apps to 64-bit status but continued to allow 32-bit apps to function. Then it began to warn developers and customers...

Apple Daily Report for July 28, 2017

The AWT News Update is on hiatus while my compadre, Steve, takes a weekend road trip with his lovely wife. In its place, I’ll offer a text-only (no podcast) summary of breaking stories with a tip o’ my hat to my former website, Apple Daily Report.

David Bradley, the chairman and owner of Atlantic Media, has announced that he’s selling a majority stake in The Atlantic to Emerson Collective, an organization led by philanthropist and investor Laurene Powell Jobs (Steve Jobs’ widow). Bradley will retain a minority stake in The Atlantic and will continue as chairman and operating partner for at least three to five years. In a letter to his staff, Bradley wrote that Emerson Collective will most likely assume full ownership of The Atlantic within five years.

Regular readers know that I usually stick to the well-charted territory of essential terminal commands and practical overviews of Linux history, since they are immediately useful to newcomers. Thankfully, the basics don't change very quickly -- but that's not to say that Linux is a stagnant ecosystem. Far from it. Although most current events in the Linux community have little direct impact on the average desktop user, one recent development that very much does is Canonical's decision to end development of Ubuntu's flagship Unity desktop.

The "1492" moniker refers to the year that Christopher Columbus made his voyage to the Americas, but perhaps the Amazon team missed the irony that Columbus actually did not realize he had "discovered" a new continent and thought he was somewhere else.

Is it too late to convince Apple to add mouse...

Is it too late to convince Apple to add mouse support in iOS 11? That’s the main drawback that prevents me from replacing my Mac laptop with my 12.9-inch iPad Pro.

The Files app, improved Dock, and beefed-up multitasking features in iOS 11 go a long way toward making an iPad a laptop replacement for some users. I can almost use my biggie-sized tablet as my “secondary Mac” (sorry, but there’s no way it can take the place of my beloved 27-inch iMac). 

Here’s the rub: I do a lot of cutting, copying and pasting between documents. It’s a laborious process selecting text by pointing and dragging-to-select in iOS 11. Accomplishing the same thing with a mouse on my iMac is soooo much easier; it’s also easier (but less so than using a mouse) doing this with my Mac laptop’s trackpad. 

In addition to dealing with text, there are other reasons to wish for mouse support on an iPad. For example, if you’re using a Smart Keyboard for an extended period, it’s inconvenient to...

Hands-on: Akitio’s portable 4-Bay Thunderbolt 3...

Last year I went hands-on with a few Akitio Thunderbolt 3-enabled drive enclosures for 9to5Mac, but none of the previous enclosures came with out-of-the-box support for macOS. Instead, users had to rely on a hack in order to enable support for these enclosures, due to the fact that macOS wasn’t compatible with the Thunderbolt 3 chipsets being used.

In today’s world, things are a bit different. Much of the Thunderbolt 3 hardware shipping today is no longer “Windows only”, which is a great thing for recent MacBook Pro and Mid-2017 iMac hardware with Thunderbolt 3 I/O capabilities.

Akitio’s soon-to-be-released Thunder3 Quad Mini is one such example of Thunderbolt 3-enabled hardware made with the Mac in mind. This four-bay enclosure comes with two Thunderbolt 3 ports in a small aluminum enclosure that supports passive cooling for noiseless operation. In other...

Everyone can code: An encounter with Swift...

Jordan Smith:

A few days ago my wife expressed an interest in learning how to code. ‘Really..? Sure!’, I said. ‘You should check out an app called Swift Playgrounds’.

And:

I hadn’t tried the app myself, but Apple made a big deal of introducing it last year, and I had heard positive things – so it seemed like a good suggestion.

It didn’t take long to get the app installed, and as Joelle (my wife) started the first lesson, my curiosity turned to fascination. Yes, the app was fun, exciting, and engaging, but that wasn’t it. Despite a few rough edges, Swift Playgrounds made coding seem approachable, perhaps even ordinary. As if by magic, coding had become something that everyone can do.

Apple Glasses are inevitable

Neil Cybart:

All of the pieces are coming together for Apple to sell glasses. Using fashion and luxury lessons learned from selling Apple Watch, Apple will enter the glasses industry and in the process launch its first product category designed specifically for the augmented reality (AR) era. While ARKit has taken the world by storm, the development platform is already making it clear that new form factors are needed to take full advantage of AR. It is no longer a question of if, but when, Apple will use AR to rethink glasses.

And:

It cannot be overstated how clearer vision is one of the most value-add items a product can provide to its user. There aren’t too many gadgets or devices that would be selected over a smartphone in terms of its importance in our lives. However, corrective lenses would certainly be at the top of the list for many people.

Bloomberg:

Twitter Inc. failed to attract more monthly users in the second quarter, spooking investors looking for evidence that the company is on a sustainable long-term growth path. The shares tumbled the most in nine months, even as quarterly revenue topped analysts’ projections.

A long-term turnaround depends on Twitter expanding its audience. That number stands at 328 million monthly active users.

Twitter has 328 million users. That’s a huge audience, by most standards. If you are an investor, the desire for growth is understandable.

But if you are a Twitter user, does growth matter? Does revenue matter?

As long as Twitter makes enough money to keep paying their bills without completely bastardizing the user experience, neither should matter. The question is, how will Twitter management react to pressure from these spooked investors. Will advertising creep upwards? Will the basic mechanics change in a quest to make Twitter pay?

A final decision on a proposed €850 million (approximately US$996) Apple data centre in Athenry, Ireland, has been pushed back to mid-October, The Irish Times reports. A decision was expected this week but the Courts Service has delayed hearing on the case until Oct. 12.

An Bord Pleanála — an independent, statutory, quasi-judicial body that decides on appeals from planning decisions made by local authorities in Ireland — granted planning permission for the development of the Galway centre in 2016. And even that was a delay.

Apple planned to start building the data center on a 500-acre site before the end of 2015. However, it was delayed when unhappy Irish citizens lodged formal complaints with the Irish government. Complainants argued that the data centre would increase noise and light pollution, flooding, and traffic.

The exploits behave as follows:

Achilles:
The first exploit, called Achilles, lets an attacker trojan an OS X disk image (.dmg) installer with one or more specified executables for a one-time execution. In the user guide included in the leaked documents, the infected DMG file could be presented as a valid piece of software.

When the user copies it over to their Applications folder, the trojan executes whatever the attacker wants. After execution, all traces of Achilles files will be removed securely from the app. Achilles was tested on OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard.

The second exploit is called SeaPea, and it’s a rootkit that lets the...

The company confirmed that the units have been discontinued, but continues to sell the iPod touch with updated pricing and storage, including a 32GB model for $199 and 128GB model for $299.

For now, it appears the iPod nano and iPod shuffle are still available to purchase at many Apple Stores and other resellers, but that likely won’t be the case for too much longer. In the United States, the latest iPod nano started at $149 with 16GB of storage, while the iPod shuffle cost $49 with 2GB of storage.

Beyond additional colors and storage capacities, Apple had last updated the iPod Nano in October 2012 and the iPod Shuffle in September 2010.

Apple introduced the iPod shuffle in January 2005, followed by the iPod nano in September 2005. In total, there were seven generations of the iPod nano,...

Apple patent hints at LTE-capabile laptops

Microsoft has announced that six PC manufacturers (HP, Lenovo, ASUS, VAIO, Huawei, and Xiaomi) are committed to producing LTE-capable laptops. When will Apple join the party? A new patent (number 20170212554) for “electronic devices having ventilation systems with antennas” shows that the company is at least considering the possibility.

According to the patent filing, an electronic device — including a laptop — may sport a metal housing that may have an upper housing in which a component such as a display is mounted and a lower housing in which a component such as a keyboard is mounted. Hinges may be used to mount the upper housing to the lower housing for rotation about a rotational axis. An LTE capable MacBook Pro or MacBook could connect directly to 4G LTE as a smartphone would.

In 2008, Apple’s CEO Steve Jobs rejected the idea of LTE-equipped laptops because it would add complexity to the device and lock customers in to a particular carrier. As noted by...

Where to buy an iPod shuffle

Stock up, because Apple isn’t making them anymore. Apple recently discontinued its super-small audio player along with the iPod nano, leaving the iPod touch as the last iPod standing.

The iPod shuffle was originally introduced in 2005, and it seemed like an odd product because it had no screen. It had just a set of player controls set in a circular button ring. But it caught on and lived a long life in Apple’s product lineup.

External Link: MacPaw Acquires Unarchiver

Mac developer MacPaw, which operates the Setapp app subscription service, has acquired the Unarchiver family of decompression apps. Unarchiver creator Dag Ågren said that after ten years of work on the apps, he had less time to maintain them properly, and expressed confidence that MacPaw would keep Unarchiver going for a long time. MacPaw said it will “support the Unarchiver, keep it up-to-date, localize into popular languages, and make design improvements. As before, the Unarchiver will be free for all Mac users.”

Where to buy an iPod nano

Apple recently discontinued the iPod nano, which used to sit in the middle of the iPod product line. With its touch interface, it offered more operability than the iPod shuffle, but it wasn’t as big and bulky as an iPod touch or iPhone.

The iPod nano was a good device for athletes who wanted to listen to music, audiobooks, or podcasts during workouts, but wanted more control than what the iPod shuffle offers. Even if you aren’t working out, the iPod nano was a nice, small portable audio player that stayed out of your way.

It’s been noted that with the full sum kicking in only if Foxconn provides the maximum quota of 13,000 jobs, the subsidies would amount to the state paying $231,000 per job …

You can jump directly to a specific folder in macOS Sierra if you wish. In the Finder, click the Go menu in the menu bar, then choose one of the following:

Enclosing Folder: Choose this option to open the parent folder for the current window. For example, if you’re in your Downloads folder, this option opens your All My Files, Documents, or other listed folders: Choose a folder from the list.

  • Library: Press and hold the Option key, then choose Library.
  • Recent Folders: Choose a folder from the submenu. (The submenu shows up to 10 recently opened folders.)
  • Go to Folder: Type the folder’s pathname (for example, /Library/Fonts/ or ~/Pictures/), then click Go.

A slash at the beginning of a pathname indicates that the starting point is the top level of your computer’s folder structure. A slash at the end indicates that this is a path to a folder, rather than a file.

The latest delay means that a final decision won’t be made until some two years after Apple had hoped to begin construction …

MultiDev can help you website management costs

By Aaron Lee

Pantheon's Multidev is designed to cut website management costs by letting teams instantly provision unlimited development environments in the cloud. 

Multidev does for a company’s website what software-defined data centers do for its infrastructure. Each member of a team can fork the entire stack of services that power a site on demand, developing in tandem on a single platform. As a result, large websites launch faster and cost less to manage over time. 

Based on Pantheon’s multi-tenant containerized architecture, Multidev spins quickly, with no need for additional infrastructure or virtual servers. For developers, the process is easy. A team member hits "fork" to provision a complete cloud development environment in seconds. Multidev supports feature-branching, per-developer sandboxes, dedicated quality assurance environments and more. 

Pantheon supports...

LG blamed a "challenging quarter for mobiles" for the $117.27 million quarterly loss posted by its mobile unit, even as the company posted slightly higher year-over-year revenues across its other businesses. Samsung similarly reported strong overall earnings--primarily from its semiconductor segment--while its mobile unit turned in revenues and profits better than last year but still below its Galaxy heyday back in 2014.

∞ Can Apple grow a forest

Lisa Jackson, Apple’s lead on Environment work, and a group of colleagues went out to dinner one night. They ate, drank, and came up with a plan to ensure almost 1 million acres of forests are responsibly managed by 2020.

This is what I love about Apple—they aren’t just about getting products out to consumers, they think about everything along the way, including the impact they have on the environment.

Cheers, Lisa Jackson!

MacPaw scoops up Unarchiver, a macOS file extraction...

MacPaw, makers of Setapp and developers of a number of macOS apps, has purchased The Unarchiver, a file extraction utility.

Oleksandr Kosovan, the CEO and founder of MacPaw, says his company will maintain the Unarchiver, keep it up-to-date, localize into popular languages and implement design improvements. As before, the Unarchiver will be free for all Mac users. All the apps and app-related assets will be transferred to MacPaw’s developer account. 

The Unarchiver is an built-in archive extraction program on macOS. It’s designed to handle many more formats than Archive Utility, and to better fit in with the design of the Finder, says Kosovan. It can handle file names in foreign character sets, created with non-English versions of other operating systems.

Apple Store app is updated for iOS devices

Apple has updated its Apple Store app for iPhones and iPads to version 4.3.

You can use Touch ID to securely and conveniently pay for your order with your Apple ID, as well as make changes to account settings. It’s also now easier than ever to see if the iPhone you want is available at an Apple Store near you.

The Apple Store app allows you to, among other things, get recommendations based on the Apple products you already own. You can use it to find out which accessories are compatible with your devices, upgrade to a new iPhone from your current one, keep track of your orders wherever you go, and sign up for hands-on sessions in store. You can even use Apple Pay to check out from your iPhone when you visit a participating Apple Store.

SparkyLinux 5: Great All-Purpose Distro for...


When I first reviewed the Game Over edition of SparkyLinux several years ago, I called it one of the best full-service Linux distros catering to game players you could find. That assessment extends to last month's release of the non-gaming edition of this distro. The latest edition of SparkyLinux, version 5.0 "Nibiru," finds its true calling as a Linux distro that falls between those that are beginner-friendly and those that require some amount of Linux knowledge. SparkyLinux 5.0 is based on the testing branch of Debian.

Under the lease terms, the location will be at Carnegie Library at Mt. Vernon Square, the center of a newly transformed convention and entertainment district in downtown DC. What’s more, a Tri-Party Agreement among Events DC, Apple and the Historical Society of Washington, D.C. will also be executed, memorializing a co-location of Apple and the Historical Society as part of the reimagined vision at Carnegie Library. 

“The partnership between Events DC and Apple demonstrates an innovative approach to preserving the historic character of our world-renowned Carnegie Library while creating a cultural experience that welcomes residents from across the District of Columbia and visitors around the world,” said...

Foxconn yesterday officially confirmed its plans to build a $10 billion display manufacturing plant in Wisconsin, a move that had been rumored for a long time. Just a few days before that, however, President Trump touted that Apple had promised him 3 “big, big, big” factories in the United States, yet Foxconn’s new Wisconsin factory won’t be for Apple displays, but rather Sharp.

Some have speculated that Trump may have gotten Foxconn confused with Apple, and a new report from The Wall Street Journal outlines just how unlikely it is for Apple to expand to the United States so quickly…

Where's All My CPU and Memory Gone? The Answer...

Slack, valued at $5 billion, has received buyout pitches from several companies including Amazon and Microsoft. But the team collaborations service, which has over 5 million active users, continues to offer one of the most resource intensive apps you could find on Mac and iOS. From an article: TLDR; If you care about battery life or availability of your finite CPU and memory on your computer, then you probably won't want to use Slack desktop with more than one or two accounts. Slack resource usage increases linearly as you add more accounts, and it quickly adds up. [...] I noticed that my machine has been sluggish and its battery life has become poor. Whilst investigating this, it turns out that Slack desktop fails badly when used with multiple accounts. This is because CPU and memory usage increases linearly as you add more accounts to your Slack desktop client. As a result, I believe the growing trend to use Slack to be part of multiple communities is seriously flawed until Slack...
