Tech Leaders Speak Out Against Trump Ban on...

Technology executives, including Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Google CEO Sundar Pichai took to social media to voice their displeasure over President Donald Trump's latest stance on transgendered people in the military. "I am grateful to the transgender members of the military for their service," Google CEO Sundar Pichai said. Apple CEO Tim Cook said, "We are indebted to all who serve. Discrimination against anyone holds everyone back." Brad Smith, Microsoft President and Chief Legal Officer said, "We honor and respect all who serve, including the transgender members of our military." Salesforce said it "believes in equality for all. We support and thank all U.S. service members, including transgender Americans." Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said, "Everyone should be able to serve their country -- no matter who they are." Veteran entrepreneur Max Levchin urged support for transgender people across party lines. "Trans kids, soldiers etc need our support today and to know they...

Global app downloads reached nearly 25 billion downloads across iOS and Google Play in the second quarter (Q2) of 2017, according to App Annie. Downloads are growing at a rate of 15% year-over-year, the analytics services and market intelligence company adds.

Global smartphone and tablet owners continued to spend roughly twice as much money on iOS as they did on Google Play. However, both app stores saw significant growth in consumer spend year over year with iOS and Google Play growing 35% and 30%, respectively.

In addition to downloading mobile apps, global consumer spending across the Apple App Store and Google Play was over $15 billion in Q2 2017, achieving a growth rate of 35% year-over-year. This year we are on pace to see global iOS and Google Play consumer spending exceed $60 billion for 2017. By 2021, App Annie predicts iOS and Google Play consumer spend to exceed $100 billion.

Enlarge / Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation will be able to collect more than $500 million in royalties on Apple products that used the A7, A8, and A8X chips. That includes the iPad Air, pictured here in 2013. (credit: Spencer Platt/Getty Images)

A judge has ordered Apple to pay $506 million to the research arm of the University of Wisconsin.

Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation, or WARF, sued Apple in 2014, accusing its A7, A8, and A8X chips of infringing US Patent No. 5,781,752, which claims a type of "table based data speculation circuit." The following year after a trial, a Wisconsin jury found (PDF) that Apple...

Unordered Lists in Markdown

In Markdown, you can created unordered lists using any of three characters as the “bullets”: asterisk (*), hyphen (-), or plus (+). Why all three? More or less: why not? Better to let people choose the character that feels most natural to them. I know a lot of Markdown users choose different characters for different levels of a hierarchical list, and that went into the original thinking as well.

I’ve always been curious which list markers people actually use, so I did a poll on Twitter. The results:

  • 42% Asterisk (*)
  • 54% Hyphen (-)
  • 04% Plus (+)

You can only respond to Twitter polls using Twitter’s official clients, and because a lot of my followers have the good taste to use third-party clients like Tweetbot and Twitterrific, I wound up getting a lot of “responses” by way of replies to my tweet. They don’t show up in the results above, but eyeballing them,...

Apple-Supplier Foxconn To Announce New Factory in...

An anonymous reader shares a Washington Post report: Foxconn, one of the world's largest electronics manufacturers, will unveil plans Wednesday evening to build a new factory in southeastern Wisconsin (alternative source), delivering a much-needed win for President Trump and Gov. Scott Walker, according to four officials with knowledge of the announcement. The facility will make flat-screen displays and will be located in Southeast Wisconsin within House Speaker Paul Ryan's congressional district. It is not clear how many jobs would be created. Shortly after Trump was elected, Foxconn's chairman Terry Gou said his company would invest at least $7 billion in the United States and create between 30,000 and 50,000 jobs. If it follows through with that commitment, Foxconn would become a major employer on par with Chrysler. In April, Gou spent more than two hours at the White House.

It’s time for Apple to give us a new Apple TV, hopefully one with 4K support. Roku has pulled waaaay ahead of Apple’s set-top box and leads the market in the number of connected TV users in the United States, according to new research from eMarketer.

The research firm estimates that 38.9 million users will use a Roku at least once a month this year, compared to comes in above the 36.9 million for Google’s Chromecast and 35.8 million for Amazon’s Fire TV. The Apple TV comes in at the back of the pack with 21.3 million.  

 eMarketer isn’t too optimistic about Apple’s set-top box’s chances, predicting the company will add less than 4 million users by 2021 compared to the 20 million to 30 million net adds by the competition.  Paul...

How Apple earbuds were influenced by Star Wars...

Image via Lucasfilm / Disney. 

Here's a fun bit of design trivia for you. The Wall Street Journal published a big article on Apple chief designer Jony Ive's touches on the soon-to-be-opened Apple Park today, but that's not the key piece of the article in my opinion. The fascinating bit? Apple's white plastic earbuds that came with the original iPod and have since morphed into the EarPods and AirPods we know so well were influenced by none other than the sparkling white body armor of Star Wars Stormtroopers.

These are not Star Wars stormtroopers

Ive apparently told Star Wars: The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams that he had Stormtrooper armor in mind when he came up with the iconic gleaming white design of the earbuds. Those white plastic earbuds were used to great effect in the original advertising campaign for the iPod line, and even...

USB 3.0 Promoter Group touts new USB 3.2 spec

USB just keeps getting faster and faster, with the USB 3.0 Promoter Group -- of which Apple is a member -- announcing the upcoming release of the USB 3.2 specification yesterday. It's considered an "incremental update" to USB 3.1, but it's an important one -- it defines multi-lane operation for USB 3.2 hosts and devices, meaning that devices can allow for two lanes of 5 Gbps (gigabit per second) data transfer or two lanes of 10 Gbps transfer. 

Connecting a USB 3.2 host to a USB 3.2 device would now provide transfer speeds of over 2 GB/sec (gigabytes per second) over existing USB Type-C cables certified for SuperSpeed USB 10 Gbps. 

The key takeaway here? It's using existing USB Type-C cables but doubling the capacity of those cables. The Promoter Group says that the USB 3.2 solution allows for continued use of existing SuperSpeed USB physical layer data rates and encoding techniques for...

Reader cdreimer writes: As reported by The Wall Street Journal (paywalled, summary by Apple Insider), Jony Ive explains how he brought forth Steve Jobs' final design, Apple Park, Apple's newest campus headquarters, to life: "On a sunny day in May, Jonathan Ive -- Jony to anyone who knows him -- first encounters a completed section of Apple Park, the giant campus in Cupertino, California, that has turned into one of his longest projects as Apple's chief designer. A section of workspace in the circular, Norman Foster -- designed building is finally move-in-ready: sliding-glass doors on the soundproof offices, a giant European white oak collaboration table, adjustable-height desks, and floors with aluminum-covered hinged panels, hiding cables and wires, and brushed-steel grating for air diffusion. Ive's characteristically understated reaction -- "It's nice, though, isn't it?" -- masks the anxiety he feels each time a product he's designed is about to be introduced to the world. "There...

Foxconn plant in Wisconsin to be announced tonight

One of Apple's largest manufacturing partners is Hon Hai Precision Industry Co., Ltd, commonly known by the trade name Foxconn. Tonight, it's expected that Foxconn representatives, President Donald Trump, House Speaker Paul Ryan and Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker will announce a new Foxconn plant to be located in Wisconsin.

While Foxconn assembles iPhones and other products for Apple, it's unknown if Apple will have any part in the production at the plant. For example, several reports have said that the new plant would be used to create large-format TV displays, something that Apple doesn't currently sell nor have any plans to market. 

On Tuesday, President Donald Trump made one of his patented tweets, saying that Apple was going to bring three "big, big, big" plants to the US. Since Apple doesn't assemble its own products, it's likely he...

Among major corporate brands, Apple has some of the highest loyalty and satisfaction rates with the U.S. public, according to a recent study by the Fluent marketing firm.

Based on June online polls of U.S. adults, using at least 2,000 to 3,000 completed surveys for each selected industry, Apple achieved a 91% loyalty score and 85% satisfaction score. In the study, Fluent included the “largest and most relevant” consumer industries. For each industry, it surveyed consumers about 15-20 of the largest brands. 

Here’s what Fluent has to say about Apple: “Apple remains the gold standard for practical innovation.  e brand continues to integrate more and more devices, ensuring that as consumers add to their Apple ecosystem (iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, etc.) they become increasingly dedicated to the brand’s signature experience.”

Brantley Gilbert made the most of an opportunity on July 23, debuting a new, 60-second black-and-white Apple Music commercial during a NASCAR race that bore his name this year, the Brantley Gilbert Big Machine Brickyard 400.

The spot will likely appeal to fans of both country and rock, two genres that trail pop and hip-hop in the penetration of streaming services. Shot over two days near Leiper’s Fork, Tenn., the video incorporates images of a wide-open field, motorcycles on a country road, rural neighbors in a small-town diner and an American flag, backed by snippets of Gilbert’s current single, “The Ones That Like Me,” plus Lynyrd Skynyrd’s “Sweet Home Alabama,” Kendrick Lamar’s “Backseat Freestyle” and Steppenwolf’s “Born to Be Wild.” Other acts whose names are visible in Gilbert’s playlist include Johnny Cash, Metallica and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club.

President Trump claimed in a WSJ interview that Tim Cook has promised to build three large manufacturing plants in the U.S. – without specifying when this might happen, where they might be located or what they might make.

“I spoke to [Mr. Cook], he’s promised me three big plants—big, big, big,” Mr. Trump said as part of a discussion about business-tax reform and business investment. “I said you know, Tim, unless you start building your plants in this country, I won’t consider my administration an economic success. He called me, and he said they are going forward.”

But there is every reason to doubt this, no persuasive reason to believe it – and little basis for believing it would matter much even if it were true …

How Jony Ive masterminded Apple’s new headquarters

Christina Passariello, Wall Street Journal:

Apple Park is unlike any other product Ive has worked on. There will be only one campus—in contrast to the ubiquity of Apple’s phones and computers—and it doesn’t fit in a pocket or a hand. Yet Ive applied the same design process he brings to technological devices: prototyping to minimize any issues with the end result and to narrow what he calls the delta between the vision and the reality of a project. Apple Park is also the last major project Ive worked on with Steve Jobs, making it more personal for the man Jobs once called his “spiritual partner.”

So far, so good. But:

With Apple Park, Ive is ensconced as master of the house, which means he has also inherited the burden of proving that Apple’s best days aren’t behind it. Apple hasn’t had a breakthrough product since Jobs died. The iPhone’s sales growth has stalled, and expectations are high that a 10th-anniversary phone will arrive later this year and will be...

Market Watch: The Apple Car could run traditional...

Vitaliy Katsenelson, Market Watch:

I had this “Aha!” moment recently when I visited a Tesla store and saw its cars’ power train. It looks just like a skateboard — basically a flat slab of metal (which houses the battery), four wheels, and an electric engine the size of a large watermelon. That’s it — the Tesla has only 18 moving parts.

Many Tesla showrooms have that full size power train on display. It really is something to behold, a marvel of efficiency.

If both Tesla and Apple bypass the dealership model, the GMs of the world will be at an even larger competitive disadvantage. They will have to abandon the dealership model too. Yes, I know, selling cars directly to consumers is not legal in many states, but if the U.S. Constitution could be amended 27 times, the law on car sales (which is an artifact of the Great Depression) can be amended as well. The traditional dealership model is unlikely to survive anyway, as its economics dramatically degrade in the...

The judge, in his determination, said WARF is owed additional damages plus interest because Apple continued to use the patented technology without license until the IP expired in December 2016. In early 2013, WARF filed a lawsuit saying that Apple's A7 processor (which is now up to version A10) infringed a university-developed patent that improves "the efficiency and performance of contemporary computer processors...

Adobe announces “end of life” date for Flash Player...

Adobe’s Flash Player now has an end date: the end of 2020.

Adobe says it’s working with companies including Apple and Google to prepare for the upcoming death of Flash, as quoted here:

Given this progress, and in collaboration with several of our technology partners – including Apple, Facebook, Google, Microsoft and Mozilla – Adobe is planning to end-of-life Flash. Specifically, we will stop updating and distributing the Flash Player at the end of 2020 and encourage content creators to migrate any existing Flash content to these new open formats.

Leading up to the end of 2020 and the death of Flash Player, Adobe has stated that it will continue to support the plug-in with both security and browser compatibility updates. In some regions where older, insecure versions of Flash are heavily distributed, however, Adobe plans to ramp up EOL efforts “more aggressively” as part of the effort.

USB Promoter Group announces USB 3.2 protocol, cites...

The USB 3.0 Promoter Group, comprising Apple, HP, Intel, Microsoft, and other companies, today introduced an upcoming USB 3.2 specification, which will eventually replace the existing USB 3.1 specification upon release.

While the increase is relatively incremental, the group stated that the USB 3.2 protocol will allow for either two lanes of 5Gb/s or two lanes of 10Gb/s operation.

With support for two lanes of 10Gb/s transfer speeds, performance is essentially doubled over existing USB-C cables.

The USB Promoter Group stated that a USB 3.2 host connected to a USB 3.2 storage device will be capable of 2GB/sec data transfer performance over a USB-C cable certified for USB SuperSpeed 10Gb/s USB 3.1, while also remaining backwards compatible with earlier USB devices.

Along with two-lane operation, USB 3.2 continues to use SuperSpeed USB layer data rates and encoding techniques and will introduce a minor update to hub specifications for seamless...

Apple invention would help parents keep track of...

Apple has been granted a patent (number 9,715,584) designed to make it easier for parents to keep track of their children. The invention is for a “biometric receipt.”

It involves an child’s electronic device — iPhones and Apple Watches are the most logical gadgets — that provides a tracking report to a computing device (another iPhone or Apple Watch) located remotely from it. The tracking report may include location information that identifies the geographical location of the kids’ device, and device user information that identifies the user of the electronic device. And, by kids, this all applies more to teens and pre-teens than toddlers and infants, as they're probably don't have iPhones or Apple Watches.

The device acquires location information for the tracking report through a location awareness capability such as a global positioning system. The device acquires user identification information for the tracking report through a biometric scanning component, such as...

Nomad Leather Case for the iPhone 7/7 Plus offers...

The Nomad Leather Case for the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus is a nice compromise of high quality at a reasonable price. It costs $39.95, which is $10 cheaper than Apple’s Leather Case for an iPhone 7 Plus. Apple’s case is easier to install but, once it’s in place, the Nomad is is more protective.

Made from vegetable-tanned Horween leather, it’s designed to look better over time. Much like your favorite pair of raw denim, leather ages in a similar way, developing a “patina” as oils from your skin and other elements of the environment absorb into it. Patina isn’t a bad thing; it’s a good thing. In fact, it’s the main reason people fall in love with natural leather in its raw state. Starting with a beautiful pale tan shade, it eventually develops into any range of browns through wear and use. 

Not only does the Nomad look good, it offers reasonable iPhone security, due to its full-wrap...

How to start up in single-user mode or verbose mode...

If you're an advanced user who’s comfortable with UNIX, you can use single-user mode or verbose mode to help isolate issues related to startup.

Verbose mode (pictured) provides additional details as to what the computer is doing and what drivers and software it is loading during startup. This level of detail can be very helpful for troubleshooting problems with hardware or software, if errors are occurring during startup or after the operating system has loaded.

To start your Mac in single-user mode or verbose mode:

  • Hold down one of these key combinations on your keyboard immediately after pressing the power button to turn on your Mac, or immediately after your Mac begins to restart: Command-S for single-user mode or Command-V for verbose mode.
  • Continue holding the keys until you see white text on the screen.
  • If you're using FileVault, release the keys when you see the login window. Then log in to continue startup in single-user or...

Upcoming USB 3.2 Specification Will Double Data...

A new USB specification has been introduced today by the USB 3.0 Promoter Group, which is comprised of Apple, HP, Intel, Microsoft, and other companies. The new USB 3.2 specification will replace the existing 3.1 specification and will double data rates to 20Gbps using new wires available if your device embraces the newest USB hardware. Mac Rumors reports: An incremental update, USB 3.2 is designed to define multi-lane operation for USB 3.2 hosts and devices. USB Type-C cables already support multi-lane operation, and with USB 3.2, hosts and devices can be created as multi-lane solutions, allowing for either two lanes of 5Gb/s or two lanes of 10Gb/s operation. With support for two lanes of 10Gb/s transfer speeds, performance is essentially doubled over existing USB-C cables. As an example, the USB Promoter Group says a USB 3.2 host connected to a USB 3.2 storage device will be capable of 2GB/sec data transfer performance over a USB-C cable certified for USB SuperSpeed 10Gb/s USB 3....

A new lawsuit filed against gyroscope and accelerometer supplier for Apple, InvenSense, accuses the company of failing to tell investors about the concessions it made to secure a recent deal. InvenSense parts are used in the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus; executives should have warned investors, the suit alleges, that Apple was given a "sweetheart deal" that would hurt profits. "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...

Sales of Macs look to be way up, iOS devices are selling much better in a key foreign market, and Apple's suppliers are flourishing -- all signs that point to better-than-expected quarter....
