If you've been thinking about going the cord-cutter route, consider this a sign. Best Buy is selling the SiliconDust HDHomeRun Connect for $70 right now. This external TV tuner features two tuners, allowing you to watch over-the-air (OTA) broadcast TV on two sets or to record one show while watching the other.

The Connect's specifications say it supports up to 1080p, but broadcast TV is usually 1080i. That's still 1920-by-1080 resolution, however. The one extra thing you will need in addition to the tuner is a digital antenna.

Unlimited data plans have to be one of the most blatant examples of false advertising. Whether you’re grandfathered into an old plan, or buy one today, deep in the small-print will be a note that the carrier reserves the right to throttle your speeds once you hit a certain usage level.

But Verizon Wireless has been accused of taking this one stage further, and throttling Netflix and YouTube usage for unlimited plan users even before they hit the 22GB level at which the company says it may reduce bandwidth …

A group representing major tech companies such as Google, Amazon, Microsoft and Facebook has aligned with Apple against Qualcomm by calling on regulators to reject Qualcomm's bid to ban the import of iPhones, reports Reuters. Makes sense. After all, the "enemy of my enemy is my friend."

The lobbying group filed comments with the U.S. International Trade Commission.They argue that banning Apple from importing foreign-assembled iPhones that use Intel chips - as Qualcomm wants to see happen - would cause "significant shocks to supply" for phones and would hurt consumers.

"If the ITC were to grant this exclusion order, it would help Qualcomm use its monopoly power for further leverage against Apple and allow them to drive up prices on consumer devices," Ed Black, the CEO of the group, said in a statement. “What’s at stake here is certainly the availability of iPhones and other...

Rumor: LG to make batteries for the ‘iPhone 9’

Forget the (still unannounced) iPhone 8, we need rumors of 2019’s “iPhone 9.” Oh wait, here’s one:

LG will be the sole provider of batteries for the next ten smartphone, according to the Korean Economic Daily (as noted by AppleInsider), quoting an“unnamed source.”

LG has supposedly invested "hundreds of billions" of won in dedicated battery manufacturing facilities and will be ready to begin full-scale production early next year. According to the Korean Economic Daily, the iPhone 9 (shown in a fanciful mockup by iphone9s.us) will adopt a battery module that is "bent" or extended to one side at its bottom to form an "L" shape. So far, all models of the Apple smartphone have relied on standard rectangular "jelly roll" lithium-ion batteries.

A smart fish tank left a casino vulnerable to hackers

CNNTech:

Hackers attempted to steal data from a North American casino through a fish tank connected to the internet, according to a report from security firm Darktrace.

Despite extra security precautions set up on the fish tank, hackers still managed to compromise the tank to send data to a device in Finland before the threat was discovered and stopped.

“Someone used the fish tank to get into the network, and once they were in the fish tank, they scanned and found other vulnerabilities and moved laterally to other places in the network,” Justin Feir, director for cyber intelligence and analysis at Darktrace, explained to CNN Tech.

Why connect a fish tank to the internet? So you can monitor/feed your fish from anywhere in the world.

With great convenience comes great hackability.

iOS 10.3.3 update resolves Wi-Fi exploit that...

Even if you’re generally a bit hesitant to accept iOS updates until they’ve been out for a while, it might be a good idea to accept the new iOS 10.3.3 update, which was released on Wednesday.

Per Apple’s security document, the update includes the following major fix:

Impact: An attacker within range may be able to execute arbitrary code on the Wi-Fi chip

Description: A memory corruption issue was addressed with improved memory handling.

According to Nitay Artenstein of Exodus Intelligence, who discovered the bug and reported it to Apple, the issue allowed an outside party to exploit the issue to ‘run code in the main application processor.’ In other words, gain complete control of your device.

The underlying issue is a weakness in the Broadcom BCM43xx family of wifi chips. These are used in every iPhone from the iPhone 5 to iPhone 7, as well as 4th-gen iPad and later, and iPod Touch 6th gen. But Artenstein found a way to leverage control of the...

Apple reportedly working on electric car batteries...

Fred Lambert, 9to5Mac:

Today, China’s Yicai Global reported that CATL, China’s largest automotive battery maker, is working with Apple on a confidential project:

“The Cupertino-based tech titan is working with Contemporary Amperex Technology Ltd. (CATL), a battery manufacturer in China’s Fujian province, on a scheme based on a confidentiality agreement. The parties are working together in the field of batteries, sources involved with the cooperation said.”

Neither Apple or CATL commented on the report.

If true, that’s a line in the sand between Apple’s car project being hardware-based, as opposed to a software-only car OS.

Interesting wrinkle.

The iPad easing its was into being your only computer

Benedict Evans:

There’s a pretty common argument in tech that though of course there are billions more smartphones than PCs, and will be many more still, smartphones are not really the next computing platform, just a computing platform, because smartphones (and the tablets that derive from them) are only used for consumption where PCs are used for creation. You might look at your smartphone a lot, but once you need to create, you’ll go back to a PC.

And:

100m or so people are doing things on PCs now that can’t be done on tablets or smartphones. Some portion of those tasks will change and become possible on mobile, and some portion of them will remain restricted to PCs for a long time. But there are another 3bn people who were using PCs (but mostly sharing them) but who weren’t doing any of those things with them, and are now doing on mobile almost all of the stuff that they actually did do on PCs, plus a lot more. And, there’s another 2bn or so people whose...

Rumor: Apple working with Contemporary Amperex...

Another piece of the Apple Car project may have fallen into place.

Apple is said to secretly be working with a Chinese firm on research and development of auto batteries, suggesting it may be interested in more than just software for self-driving cars, according to Yicai Global on Thursday.

It’s rumored that Contemporary Amperex Technology has signed a confidentiality agreement with Apple. Few other details were available, and CATL has officially refused to comment.

Apple has recently been spotted testing modified existing vehicles on public roads. The company was rumored to be building a complete electric car, although its “Project Titan” effort has been thought to have been switched to focus on software within the past year.

If the CATL partnership is authentic, Apple may have reached an expected decision on whether or not to move ahead with an internally designed car. The company would need an especially powerful battery to match the 200-mile-plus...

The Rayz Plus stand out in a crowded field of...

When you test drive as many products as I do, it’s hard to run across earphones that stand out from the pack. However, the Rays Plus from Pioneer Home Entertainment U.S.A do just that.

How? They blend the “intelligence” of an iOS app with the benefits of Apple’s Lightning connector. The latter means the earphones are powered by the iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, so you don’t need extra batteries. Also, the Rayz Plus model is the first (and, apparently, the only) Lightning headset with an in-line charging node. This allows you to simultaneously charge and iDevice while the earphones are connected and being used. 

The folks at Pioneer Home Entertainment say the Rayz Plus are based on Avnera's LightX platform that enables the earphones to operate in modes with the lowest power use possible. The earphones are sleek and svelte, but manage to pack six microphones into the slim body.

This allows for “Smart Noise...

Apple’s ‘dynamic music authoring’ patent involves...

Apple has filed for a patent (number 20170206873) for “dynamic music authoring.” Most likely involving future versions of GarageBand on macOS and iOS devices, the goal is to provide software that “allows users to create music at home.”

For example, music authoring software can provide features that allow users to store music tracks, samples, or other prerecorded music segments and combine the music segments to create an original musical product. However, Apple says much music authoring software at present is often difficult to use and often requires the user to have specific expertise or training in how to use the music authoring software to combine the music segments into a coherent musical product. The company wants to change this.

In some implementations of the invention, a computing device can be configured to present a graphical user interface (GUI) that enables the dynamic authoring of music by a user of the computing device. The computing device can present a...

Public Service Announcement: You Should Not Force...

John Gruber, writing for DaringFireball: The single biggest misconception about iOS is that it's good digital hygiene to force quit apps that you aren't using. The idea is that apps in the background are locking up unnecessary RAM and consuming unnecessary CPU cycles, thus hurting performance and wasting battery life. That's not how iOS works. The iOS system is designed so that none of the above justifications for force quitting are true. Apps in the background are effectively "frozen", severely limiting what they can do in the background and freeing up the RAM they were using. iOS is really, really good at this. It is so good at this that unfreezing a frozen app takes up way less CPU (and energy) than relaunching an app that had been force quit. Not only does force quitting your apps not help, it actually hurts. Your battery life will be worse and it will take much longer to switch apps if you force quit apps in the background. [...] In fact, apps frozen in the background on iOS...

Has Photobucket Painted Itself Into a Corner?


Various celebrities over the years have "broken the Internet" when risqué photos or shocking revelations surfaced, with or without their knowledge or approval. Photo hosting service Photobucket may have surpassed Kim Kardashian's most notorious stunts, though. The company recently changed its user agreement for the hosting of images on third-party sites, and as a consequence truly may have broken the Internet. Photobucket users in recent weeks have been receiving emails with this message: "Some features on your account will be disabled."

World premiere of "The (R)evolution of Steve...

After two years of development, the new opera production of "The (R)evolution of Steve Jobs" premiers at the beautiful Santa Fe Opera this Saturday. The 90-minute opera is based on the life of iconic Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, and features a score by electronica composer Mason Bates and libretto by Mark Campbell.

The production was financially backed by opera companies in both San Francisco and Seattle, guaranteeing future productions by those companies. It begins with a prologue with Jobs' father, Paul Jobs, giving his son a workbench in the garage of the family home in Los Altos, California. The opera then travels to 2007 and the unveiling of the first iPhone, then back and forth between 2007 and the early years of Apple.

Campbell and Bates say that the opera neither glorifies nor vilifies the late Apple co-founder, and that the non-chronological timeline is dictated by memory and emotions. Other characters in...

Apple, Google and Microsoft Are Hoarding $464...

Apple, Google and Microsoft are sitting on a mountain of cash -- and most of it is stashed far away from the taxman. Those three tech behemoths held a total of $464 billion in cash at the end of last year, according to a Moody's report published this week. From a report: Apple alone had a stunning quarter-trillion dollars of cash thanks to years of gigantic profits and few major acquisitions. That's enough money to buy Netflix three times. It's also more cash than what's sitting on the balance sheet of every major industry except tech and health care. All told, non-financial U.S. companies studied by Moody's hoarded $1.84 trillion of cash at the end of last year. That's up 11% from 2015 and nearly two and a half times the 2008 level. Roughly $1.3 trillion -- 70% of the total -- is being held overseas, where the money isn't subject to U.S. taxes. Apple, Google owner Alphabet, Microsoft, Cisco, and Oracle hold 88% of their cash overseas. Moody's said the tower of money stashed abroad...

Apple is secretly working with Contemporary Amperex Technology Limited (CATL), a Chinese battery manufacturer on automotive battery research and development, according to Yicai Global, a Shanghai-based news group. 

CATL supplies lithium-ion battery cells, modules, packs, and systems to the global electric vehicle market and energy storage markets. It’s established partnerships with companies such as BMW. In 2016, CATL was ranked among the top three suppliers of battery power solutions globally.

“If Apple is working with CATL on a battery, the possibility that Apple will continue to make cars cannot be ruled out as one of the core components of self-driving electric cars is the battery,” CCID Consulting’s New Energy Director Wu Hui told Yicai Global.

Apple adds three markets for carrier billing

Apple users in Denmark, Hong Kong and Sweden can now pay for Apple Music, iTunes and other Apple services on their phone bill instead of using debit or credit cards. Apple updated its support documents to show support for carrier billing for customers of 3 in all of the new markets, as well as with SmarTone in Hong Kong and Telenor Sverige AB in Sweden. 

With the addition of these three markets to the list, there are now 17 countries and 29 mobile phone networks that support carrier billing. While such countries as France, Germany, Italy and Japan are on that list, the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom are not. 

Setting up carrier billing is quite simple. Users select "Mobile Phone" as the payment method in the Payment Information section of the Account Settings menu on their iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. Verifying the mobile phone number is then done by tapping "Use this...

As our own Jordan Kahn brought out in a previous post, iOS 11’s new Smart Invert Colors feature is the closest thing we’ve seen to a so-called ‘dark mode’ in iOS thus far. It’s not perfect, but its ability to avoid inverting images and other types of content in certain apps is a step in the right direction.

The main issue with enabling Smart Invert Colors is that you have to dig deep into the Settings app in order to do so. Instead, have a brief look at how to enable a handy triple-click Home button shortcut to instantly toggle the Smart Invert Colors feature on a whim. more…

DODOcase Leather Apple Pencil Sleeve: Saving your...

The Apple Pencil may “roll to a stop” when it’s nudged on a desk, but in my house it’s a popular cat toy. That’s one reason I was happy to see DODOcase has developed a Leather Apple Pencil Sleeve ($24.95) that can also serve double-duty as a beautiful leather bookmark.

The DODOcase Apple Pencil Sleeve. Photo ©2017, Steven Sande

The Apple Pencil Sleeve is crafted of leather and is a rather nice-looking little piece of handiwork. At this time, you can get a free gold foil monogram as well, although I think it looks just fine without the monogram.

The Pencil slides into the Sleeve easily and is held in place by friction alone… and that’s good enough. The good thing for me and others owned by cats around the world? Once it’s in the Sleeve, the Pencil won’t roll and will not end up going under doors, desks or down stairs as a fun and expensive cat toy... unless you have a really smart cat...

In Fortune magazine's 63rd tally of the list of Fortune 500 companies — in which firms are ranked by total revenues for their respective fiscal years — the tech giant took the third spot in revenue, behind only Walmart and Berkshire Hathaway. However, ranked by profitability, the company garnered $45.7 billion in profit, way ahead of second place J.P. Morgan Chase, which had $24.7 billion.

Apple also takes the top place in Fortune’s Most Admired Companies list and ranks number nine on Fortune’s Global 500 list. The latter is a list of the world's largest companies based on revenues and profits.

How to use one-handed keyboard mode on iPhone

Christian Zibreg, iDownloadBlog:

Apple’s stock keyboard on iOS 11 comes with a special mode designed to make typing with larger iPhones easier. Available on 4.7 and 5.5-inch iPhones but not on iPad, it shrinks the keys and moves them closer to your thumb.

I love this mode. I was unable to get it to work via Settings > General > Keyboard, but I was able to get it to work using the long press on the keyboard’s emoji icon. It’s a beta, so I feel certain both methods will work consistently when iOS 11 is released.

Great idea.
