Danish man reports severe burns from Apple Watch...

Update: Apple said it had examined Mr Mouritzen’s Apple Watch and found no evidence it had caused his reported injuries. Additionally, the company noted that the damage to the Apple Watch band is external and there are no active electronics in the band that could have caused the band to heat up.

Danish news site Ekstra Bladet reports that a man received severe burns from his Apple Watch, and has been waiting for several weeks for the results of an Apple investigation. Photos accompanying the report (below, not for weak stomaches) seem to show two long burn marks on the wrist of Jørgen Mouritzen, together with what appear to be burn marks on the strap.

Mouritzen and a witness to the event say that they are both certain the heat came from the Watch...

Rumor: Apple looking to bring Apple Pay to Chinese...

It looks like Apple Pay could be in China as early as next year.

Back in September, Apple created a company in the Shanghai free-trade zone, hinting at its plans to launch Apple Pay in the country. It’s since been reported that Apple plans to launch Apple Pay in China by February. Apple has reportedly secured agreements with the four largest banks in China to support the platform.

China, which stands as a larger market than Europe for Apple, is forecasted to overtake the United States as a potential market. The Chinese mobile payment market is currently dominated by Alipay, the service created by Alibaba. Apple hopes to launch Apple Pay by China’s Spring Festival Holiday on...

How I’m handling my depression (using an app)

Pete Smith:

I’m very lucky to have a fantastic family and a some seriously good friends despite the fact that I have neglected our relationships at times. They are, without exception, highly emotionally intelligent and can empathise with my current situation.

The key thing that I am doing differently right now is talking to those around me. I am trying to maintain a constant dialogue about my progress so that I cannot simply slip off the radar and assume the bad habits I desperately want to avoid. But like I say, I’m not great at asking for help so even though I know how approachable my circle is, that’s no guarantee that I’ll vocalise it when I begin to slip.

With all of this in mind, the following seemed a great solution to me.

Smith has created an app that will help him and his friends and family be aware of his depression and reach out to them in times of trouble. It’s an interesting idea and he is looking for input. If you or someone you know...

Apple Targets February for China Apple Pay Launch

Apple Pay, meet China. China, meet Apple Pay. Apple's mobile payment system is coming to China in February 2016 with the backing of the country's four big banks-or so say insider sources.

The Mac Observer Spin: Apple Pay may be popular, but the current user base is nothing compared to the potential China brings to the platform. Once launched, Apple Pay use in China could dwarf usage everywhere else in the world.

New York promotes mobile app to report suspicious...

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo yesterday announced that the state is supporting a mobile app allowing people to report suspicious activity, reports the NY Daily News. The See Send app, available on both iOS and Android, allows users to send either a text note or a photo.

The app […] will allow people to send a photo or written note to the state police Intelligence Center, where its credibility can be examined and referred to the proper law enforcement agency if necessary. [It] should be used to report suspicious behavior or specific situations like an unattended backpack in a public place, not simply hunches.

The app is already supported by Pennsylvania, Ohio, Louisiana, Colorado and Virginia.

How to fly free forever: Buy a $170 million painting...

Christian Science Monitor:

Chinese billionaire Liu Yiqian, who doesn’t exactly struggle to afford a plane ticket, can now likely fly free, in first class, with his whole family, anywhere in the world, for the rest of his life.

All because he bought a painting.

Liu was the winning bidder for Amedeo Modigliani’s “Reclining Nude” at a Christie’s auction earlier this month— offering $170.4 million— and when the sale closes he’ll be putting it on his American Express card.

I saw an Amex Black Card once many years ago. Guy bought a package of cigarettes at a gas station. I wanted to punch him.

One of my fellow bloggers at TUAW was Michael Grothaus, whom I also co-authored a number of books with. Michael had a great idea for a startup over the past few years and was able to bring his product to fruition.

T-Mobile has announced its latest “un-carrier” initiative, dubbed “Un-carrier Unwrapped.” Rather than a permanent addition to the company’s offerings, Un-carrier Unwrapped is a month-long event during which the carrier will gift its subscribers and new customers with special deals and benefits.

The first of those was announced today: unlimited LTE data for all subscribers on Simple Choice post-paid plans for the next three months.

The deal won’t take effect today, though. Customers will need to wait until December 1st to start taking advantage of the unlimited data. From that date T-Mobile subscribers will be able to use as much data as they want all the way through February.

For the next three weeks, T-Mobile will also be launching special offers (likely incentives to switch) for customers on each of its...

Qube crowdfunding shows demand for low-cost Wi-Fi...

Philips Hue light bulbs are amazing — you can get them to produce just about any color, controlled from your iPhone. But besides being expensive, they also require a hub to be able to talk to your device. Qube is an Indiegogo project with 27 days to go that seeks to bring the price of Wi-Fi connected LED bulbs down to a reasonable amount — $19 per bulb — and make it all work without the need for a hub.

The campaign launched last Thursday and is now over 200% funded. In addition to the low cost and Wi-Fi, the Qube has Bluetooth Low Energy and Bluetooth Smart built in so that just being near the bulbs with a Bluetooth device can turn on a light. That capability also makes it possible for Qube bulbs to shut off automatically when they don’t detect people in the house.

The team promises IFTTT compatibility, and also plans to have an...

Square's new card reader also accepts Apple Pay

Square is the choice of many small business owners who need to accept credit cards for payment. Now the company is beginning to replace its old "swipe" card reader with the new Square Contactless and Chip Reader, meaning that consumers will soon be able to pay with Apple Pay at local businesses.

The company is rolling out the new reader to 100 small businesses to begin with and is taking reservations for the new $49 box for the rest of its customers. Instead of a tiny mag-stripe reader that plugs into the headphone jack of an iPhone or iPad — which will still be available for free, by the way — the Square Contactless and Chip Reader is a 2.6-inch square white plastic box with a slot on one side for chip (EMV) cards and a built-in NFC payment reader.

Fitbit Charge HR and Surge users no longer need to worry about whether they’ve remembered to log a workout beforehand.

With a new software update, both fitness wearables can record exercises automatically. The so-called SmartTrack feature can discern some specific activities such as biking, running, and the elliptical without any input. Other activities are filed into broader categories such as sports (covering basketball and tennis, for instance) and aerobics (for cardio-kickboxing, Zumba, and dance classes).

Users can set up SmartTrack through Fitbit’s companion app, defining the type of activities they want to track automatically, and how much active time it should take before Fitbit starts counting. By default, Fitbit triggers exercise mode after 15 minutes.

Review: Apple Watch Magnetic Charging Dock is simple...

It’s been quite a while since Apple Watch came out (7 months!) and finally Apple has released an official dock accessory that might be worth a look. Maintaining typical Apple style, this watch dock is very simple…

There’s really not much to it at all. Inside of the box, you’ll find the dock itself and a 2-meter Lightning cable along with some simple documentation. The good news is that the magnetic charging puck for Apple Watch is completely integrated into the dock. You’ll use that Lightning cable and a power block, which does not come in the box, to hook everything together and charge your Apple Watch.

External Link: Apple Investigating Unresponsive iPad...

A number of iPad Pro users have reported that, after charging, their tablets stop responding and show only a black screen. Apple says that it’s investigating the issue, but in the meantime the company recommends forcing a restart if your iPad Pro is locked up, which you can do by holding the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons until you see an Apple logo.

Mozilla cuts Firefox's tab groups and complete...

Mozilla wants to reduce the number of little-used features in Firefox in order to move faster when it comes to rolling out new stuff. To that end, Firefox will lose two features in the near future, but to hear Mozilla tell it, only a few people will actually miss them.

First up is tab groups, a feature first introduced in 2011 with Firefox 4 (back when those version numbers truly mattered). The idea behind Tab Groups was to take a bunch of webpages and group them together kind of like app folders on your smartphone.

Square launches NFC reader compatible with Apple Pay...

This could come in handy.

Mobile payments company Square today announced the launch of its new NFC reader within 100 small businesses around the country, letting stores who previously were unable to accept Apple Pay due to the lack of a required contactless reader, to begin supporting the service. The reader will act like all other Apple Pay-accepting terminals, letting users wave an iPhone or Apple Watch near the device to complete a purchase.

Square had initially announced support for Apple Pay last November, but had yet to deliver a device for this. The company then announced that an NFC-based Square reader capable of reading chipped credit...

Review: Phiaton BT 330 NC Headphones

If a headphone plays music on an airplane and nobody can hear it, does it make a sound? Though it’s not something we often think about, portable headphones have to do more than just put music in your ears — they also have to keep noise out. With the on-ear BT 330 NC ($199), Phiaton promises to actively remove 95 percent of ambient noise from the space between its drivers and your ears. While we think they have done a pretty good job in this respect, we wouldn’t recommend the BT 330NC as your only set of cans. BT 330 NC pairs 40mm drivers with active noise canceling, and the headphone uses Bluetooth 4.0.{/exp:char_limit}

Use Apple Pay on London public transit and ride...

If you live in London and use a MasterCard with Apple Pay, you can take advantage of a wonderful promotion for the next month. Called “Fare Free Mondays,” the promotion asks commuters to use their MasterCard on Apple Pay for their bus, rail or tube trip. You’ll be charged for the transportation, but will receive a refund within 28 days of up to £27.90 per cardholder.

How do you take advantage of the deal? Just touch your Apple Pay device (Apple Watch or iPhone) at the start and end of a trip using the London Underground, Docklands Light Railway, London Overground, TfL Rail, Emirates Air Line and most National Rail services in London where a yellow card reader is present. Do this on the next four Mondays starting today, and your fare will be refunded. If you’re getting on a London Bus or London Tram, you just need to use Apple Pay at the beginning of your trip.

LG cancels LG Watch Urbane Second Edition LTE...

It looks like LG’s upcoming smartwatch, the Urbane Second Edition LTE, won’t come to fruition. Citing an unspecified hardware issue, the project has been canceled. There is no word at this time if the device will be released at a later date, but for now, LG is calling this a full-on cancellation of the launch.

The company had the following comment to offer:

We understand that you are currently reviewing our latest smartwatch; however, late in the quality assurance process for the LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE, our engineers were made aware of a hardware issue which affects the day-to-day functionality of the device. After further...

A U.S. district court judge has ruled Apple’s method of distributing and authenticating content doesn’t infringe on DRM patents owned by ContentGuard Holdings, Reuters reports. ContentGuard sued in 2013, claiming Apple applied five of its DRM patents in iTunes and iBooks to dispense movies, songs, shows and books that could be restricted to function only for approved users. Apple denied infringing on the patents and went even further by…

Apple seems to be working hard with its card company partners to promote Apple Pay in the UK. Alongside a MasterCard promo offering free travel in London, Visa Europe is today launching a two-month long ad campaign designed to emphasize the speed, ease and reliability of the service.

Featuring a central theme of anticipation, the campaign uses imagery that captures the pause before a primary action – the weightlifter before pressing the lift, the pianist before striking a chord, the chameleon before making a strike – the scenes then snap into the dramatic conclusions as an analogy to how fast, easy and reliable using a Visa card in Apple Pay is in everyday situations such as paying to use the Tube or in a café …

Court Clears Apple of Infringing on Pendrell Anti-...

Pendrell, the company that owns ContentGuard Holdings, took it on the chin last Friday when a Texas court ruled Apple didn't infringe on its anti-piracy patents. The ruling didn't come as a big surprise considering the same court shot down the company's cases against Google and Samsung in September.

The Mac Observer Spin: Maybe Pendrell should consider a different business model considering how it's recent patent infringement lawsuits have turned out.

Futurama is set to return – as an iOS game

Futurama fans may have been disappointed when the series ended, but if you want one last venture into the futuristic cartoon world, there’s an iOS game on the way. Fox has teamed up with German developer Wooga to create a game to be entitled Futurama: Game of Drones … 

The game takes players on a journey with the Planet Express crew as they fight a desperately imbalanced trade war against longtime shipping rival MomCo. While delivering dangerous cargo to hazardous locations under ill-advised circumstances, players connect groups of delivery drones to solve an array of fiendish puzzles as they venture into iconic environments from the FUTURAMA universe.

Judging by the talent involved, the game should be good: it partners Dave Grossman (Secret of Monkey Island, The Wolf Among Us), Jonathon Myers (Game of...

Oneadaptr Kickstarting its own take on Apple’s...

We Brits can occasionally feel we miss out on US-specific tech, but Apple showed us a little love with the extremely clever collapsible plug it supplied with the Apple Watch.

Oneadaptr is now Kickstarting its own take on the idea, with three different Flip  models on offer. The Duo has two USB sockets, the Quad four and the Power is a Duo with a built-in powerbank. You can back the project from £11 for the Duo.

The project is currently two-thirds of the way toward its £15k goal, with 25 days to go. The company previously successfully launched the Twist World Charging Station.

I do have to say I cringe when seeing either plug sitting on that iPad screen, though!

Escape From Silicon Valley

I started planning to escape the Valley a long time ago, due to very high taxes, a crumbling infrastructure, worsening crime, a massive increase in traffic, and a rather nasty water shortage problem. My wife and I originally planned to escape to Belize but found the unreliable infrastructure, lack of good medical care, and massive crime problem there were not conducive to our continued survival. Instead of Paradise, Belize looked a lot like hell once we got a chance to spend some quality time there.

How to use the Apple Watch in Nightstand mode

When your Apple Watch is charging and on its side, you can use it as a nightstand clock and an alarm clock. In Nightstand Mode, the smartwatch displays the date and time, along with the remaining charge. If you set an alarm, it also appears on the watch face. To turn on Nightstand mode:

  • Place your Apple Watch on its side.
  • Connect your Apple Watch to its charger.
  • After it begins charging, your Apple Watch will automatically go into Nightstand mode.

When your Apple Watch is in Nightstand mode and you aren't using it, the display turns off. To see the display again, tap it, press the Digital Crown or the side button, or lightly nudge your Apple Watch.

The alarm on your Apple Watch is different than the alarms on your iPhone. You need to set or adjust an alarm for Nightstand mode from your Apple Watch:

  • Open the Alarms app on your Apple...

Apple has posted the dates of the usual holiday shutdown of iTunes Connect, running for eight days from 22 to 29 December inclusive. During this time, developers will not be able to submit either new apps or updates to existing ones.

Developers can still schedule apps for release during these dates, but they will need to be submitted and approved beforehand. Other iTunes Connect functionality, such as access to analytics data, will remain available.

In the post on its developer website, Apple notes the record downloads, revenue and active customers for the App Store.

Because of your incredible apps, the App Store crossed 100 billion cumulative downloads. Revenue from the App Store increased 25% year over year, and the number of transacting customers grew 18%, setting a new all-time record. We want to thank...

Is there such a thing as a "power user" note-taker? Sure there is, and he/she is the user for whom Tropical Software developed TopXNotes, an US$39.99 note pad utility for the Mac.

Sure, Mac OS X comes with a Notes app. But it's a weenie tool compared to TopXNotes. Think of TopXNotes as a collection place where you can put info stuff you need to remember, but can’t. 

With the Tropical Software solution, notes can be as long as you need them to be, and you can customize the style, size, color and highlight color. My favorite feature is QuickNotes, where you can tag any note as a "QuickNote" and have it accessible without having to bring TopXNotes itself to the front of your work screen.

The customization options for your notes, categories and groups are extensive, and you can set your own groups and categories. If you’re unsure how to enter some information, there are templates for common, basic types of info...
