This isn’t the first time Apple has been sued for an “exploding” phone....

CoreOS, OCI Unveil Controversial Open Container...


CoreOS and the Open Container Initiative on Wednesday introduced image and runtime specifications largely based on Docker's image format technology. However, OCI's decision to model the standard on Docker's de facto platform has raised questions. Some critics have argued for other options. Version 1.0 provides a stable standard for application containers, according to CoreOS CTO Brandon Philips. Having a standard created by industry leaders should spur OCI partners to develop further standards and innovation, he said.

Apple Daily Report for July 20, 2017

The AWT News Update is on a brief hiatus. 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.

Apple has tweeted — as noted by AppleInsider — that it will stream an Apple Music-only performance by Arcade Fire in support of Everything Now on July 27 at 8:30 p.m. (Eastern). Everything Now is the band’s new album, due on July 28.

Apple has informed retail store employees and Apple Authorized Service Providers that some original first-generation Apple Watch models that require repairs can be replaced with Series 1 Apple Watch models. The substitutions are limited to aluminum Apple Watch models in silver, space gray, gold, and rose gold, and are only available in some countries...

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...

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...

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.

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.

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 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...

How to use one-handed keyboard mode on iPhone

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.

Amy X. Wang, Quartz:

“Change—shit, I guess change is good for any of us,” Tupac raps at the start of one of his most beloved singles, recorded in 1995 and released the following year after his death. Back then, rap, hip-hop, and R&B were still subcultures, brimming with loyal followers but lagging just below the attention of the mainstream. Fame was fierce, yet limited.

Just over a decade later, the status quo’s been flipped on its head. According to Nielsen Music’s latest semi-annual report, hip-hop (including R&B) is now the biggest genre in the US, overtaking rock music for the very first time. Hip-hop claims 25.1% of all music consumption, while rock music is at 23%.

That’s be just over two decades, no? But I digress.

Why this happened has as much to do with US’s listening methods as it does the undeniable talent of many modern-day rappers. In the 1990s, CD sales still dominated. Digital-music streaming has now outstripped physical album...

Wozniak also spoke highly of Chinese smartphones, which are much cheaper than iPhones.

“Here is what I admire about Chinese phones: really good, intelligent decisions about how to lower the cost but keep enough of the functionality in,” said Wozniak.

MikeyCampbell, AppleInsider:

Almost two years after the Santa Fe Opera commissioned “The (R)evolution of Steve Jobs,” the narrative, music and rehearsals are complete and the production is set to open this Saturday as part of a limited six-show run.

And:

Throughout the course of 19 scenes, beginning with the launch of iPhone in 2007, the opera navigates the transformative experiences of Jobs’ life, from his days at Reed College to his time with spiritual advisor Kobun Chino Otogawa to the launch of the Apple I.

As can be expected, personal relationships appear to feature prominently in the production. Scene synopses and a cast list show interactions with Steve “Woz” Wozniak, former girlfriend Chrisann Brennan, wife Laurene Powell Jobs and father Paul Jobs. In true opera fashion, Otogawa’s ghost makes multiple appearances.

Apple’s ‘scanning depth engine’ patent involves 3D...

Apple has been granted a patent (number 20170205873)  for a “scanning depth engine.” If the invention ever comes to fruition, a Mac could generate a 3D profile of an object by processing an optical image of the object.

This sort of 3D profile is also referred to as a 3D map, depth map or depth image, and 3D mapping is also referred to as depth mapping. Depth maps can be used in interactive gaming, creating shadows cast by illumination in 3D computer graphics, adding realism by simulating the semi-transparent properties of translucent materials such as human skin, and much more.

Apple’s invention is for a mapping apparatus that includes a transmitter, which emits a beam comprising pulses of light, and a scanner, which is configured to scan the beam, within a predefined scan range, over a scene. A receiver receives the light reflected from the scene and to generate an output indicative of a time of flight of the pulses to and from points in the scene.

The amount of cash held by US non-financial companies totaled $1.84 trillion at the end of 2016, up 9.2% from $1.68 trillion at the end of 2015, Moody's Investors Service says in a new report. The top-five cash hoarders all come from the technology sector, with Apple holding a record high of $246.1 billion.

"The technology sector today holds the most cash among US non-financial companies, accounting for 47% of the total, followed by healthcare/pharmaceuticals, consumer products, and energy," says Richard Lane, Moody's senior vice president. "The top five most cash-flush companies -- Apple, Microsoft, Google, Cisco and Oracle -- now hold 32% of the total, with Apple by itself accounting for 13.4%.”

Moody's estimates cash held overseas amounted to $1.3 trillion, or 70% of the total cash pile in 2016, up from its estimate of $1.2 trillion, or 72% of the total in 2015. This amount reflects the negative tax consequences...

Regulators have cleared Apple’s Oregon wind power project to use the biggest turbines ever deployed in the Pacific Northwest, reports the Portland Business Journal.

Project developer Avangrid Renewables said it hasn’t made a final decision on the machines it will use at the Montague Wind Power Facility, but regulators last week granted a site-certificate amendment that allows for turbines with rotor diameters of 136 meters and generating capacities of 3.6 megawatts. The biggest turbines in the region now top out around 100 to 110 meters in rotor diameter and 2.5 megawatts in generating capacity.

Longer blades give turbines a greater “swept area,” increasing energy capture for each watt of installed capacity. According to the Portland Business Journal this translates to power production at closer to full capacity on a more consistent...

J.P. Morgan analyst predicts September launch for...

He’s straying from the pack a bit, but analyst Rod Hall of J.P. Morgan has offered a statement predicting that Apple will continue to support the concept of a “super cycle” after the “iPhone 7s” family and “iPhone 8” launch. However, because of possible OLED screen issues related to Touch ID, launch quantities will likely be constrained.

The original J.P. Morgan estimates had predicted that Apple would have 9 million “iPhone 8” units available for launch and for sale before the end of September. Instead, Hall has predicted that the actual number is now closer to 2 million because of unspecified production problems, and has shifted quarterly unit forecasts accordingly.

Hall also stated that the relative lack of unavailability at launch and in the early days of the fiscal quarter ending in September will have a temporary effect on average selling price. Hall stated that the average selling price will not hit the peak of $681 as they predicted, but will be around $629...

How to use apps in full screen or Split View in...

macOS Sierra allows you to focus on apps in full screen or Split View mode (though some third party apps may not support these features). To use an app in full screen mode, in the top-left corner of the app window, click the green button, or press Control-Command-F.

In full screen, do any of the following:

  • Show and hide the menu bar: Move the pointer to or away from the top of the screen to access the app’s menus.
  • Show and hide the Dock: Move the pointer to or away from the bottom or side of the screen, depending on the Dock’s location.
  • Move between other apps in full screen: Swipe left or right on your trackpad or Magic Mouse. 

To stop using the app full screen, move the pointer to the top-left corner of the screen, then click the green button, or press Control-Command-F.

To use two apps in Split Screen mode, in the top-left corner of an app window, click and hold the green button, drag the window to the side you want,...

Shairwaves makes it easy for Macs to share connected...

By Aaron Lee

Coolatoola's Shairwaves is an HD audio device sharing app that provides the ability for Macs to share their connected audio devices. Just as printers and screens can be shared, so now audio devices can be shared as well. Although it's similar to Apple's AirPlay, Shairwaves doesn't use AirPlay's protocols.

The app replicates all device characteristics — up to eight channels with sample rates up to 192kHz and sample widths up to 32 bits. Encoded audio formats are also shared, making it possible to watch a DVD or iTunes movie on a MacBook and have the 5.1 surround audio come out of a home theatre system with no wires. Devices appear on client computers just as they do on the serving host and can be used in the same way.

Shairwaves can also run on the Raspberry Pi computer and PCs running Linux, with complete plug-and-play installations downloadable to an SD card or USB stick to be...

Hoping for a small Mac mini revival

A funny thing happened to the Mac mini last week. The single Mac model that’s the most long in the tooth surpassed 1,000 days without an update. But this shouldn’t be too surprising to Mac mini fans: that update, in October 2014, was 723 days after the previous Mac mini update, in October 2012. The quad-core Mac mini released in 2012 (and discontinued in 2014) still stands as the fastest Mac mini ever made, since the 2014 models maxed out at two processor cores.

"Instead of revealing the true condition of the company and its prospects, defendants hid those facts from investors and chose to issue strong guidance and paint a picture of a bright future with a new mega-customer," the complai...
