Apple Pay now supports HSBC, First Direct banks in UK

Apple Pay has just hit the “international” category.

Apple updated its Apple Pay web site, announcing support for both UK banks HSBC and First Direct. Both banks were announced as starting partners for the UK branch of Apple Pay, but were delayed until late July at the last minute.

Apple’s forthcoming UK Apple Pay partner lineup includes the following: American Express, MBNA, Nationwide, NatWest, Royal Bank of Scotland, Santander and Ulster Bank. Still listed as coming soon are: Bank of Scotland, Lloyds Bank, M&S Bank and TSB. Although Barclays has confirmed “imminent” support for the contactless payment service, the bank has yet to be listed on Apple’s Apple Pay UK site...

News: Apple Music added to T-Mobile’s Music Freedom

T-Mobile has added Apple Music to its Music Freedom program, allowing listeners to stream Apple Music songs without counting against their data limit. The carrier is also offering customers the ability to lease an iPhone for $15 a month and allowing anyone picking up an iPhone before Labor Day to upgrade to the next model later this year at the same rate. “Now, every single customer who gets a new iPhone 6 this summer as part of this deal can…

Rumor: Supply chain evidence of purported “iPhone 6c...

The “iPhone 6c” may never come to pass.

A new industry report from Cowen and Company analyst Timothy Arcuri, revealed in a recent note to investors that he can no longer find evidence that Apple is working on such a device for 2015.

The note has Arcuri nixing the idea of the smaller handset so as not to cannibalize sales of refreshed 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch models widely expected to launch this fall.

“I think one of the reasons is because the iPhone 6 has sold so well,” Arcuri said. “And they said, ‘Look, why would we want to cannibalize? If we came out with an iPhone 6C, we would essentially cannibalize a price-reduced...

The Key to Apple Watch Success: Getting Enough Right...


I still find wry joy in all the "Apple Watch Tanks" headlines from early July. There are some great gems, like "Apple Watch is a FLOP: Sales of the gadget have fallen by 90 percent since April, report claims" or "Analyst: Apple Watch selling worse than thought." Trouble is, the reports and estimates were based on a tiny slice of reality. In fact, after Apple's earnings call with analysts last week, Apple CEO Tim Cook revealed that Apple Watch sales were higher in June than in April or May. So, how is it that sales are tanking?

Freemium Field Test: Mission Impossible: Rogue...

Free-to-play games often look appealing, but it’s difficult to know at a glance whether the business model is insidious and fun ruining, or reasonable and worth pumping a few bucks into. With Freemium Field Test, we’ll take a recent free-to-play iOS game, put it through its paces, and let you know if it’s really worth your time (and money). 

It’s easy to get excited about this weekend’s release of Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, especially after 2011’s Ghost Protocol pumped some life back into the spy film franchise. Just look at the latest trailer: The bike chase! That car chase! The gadgets! Tom Cruise hanging off of an airplane! It’ll be tough to top the last one, but Rogue Nation seems like it’s got a fighting chance.

The site says both Apple and the labels were surprised by the speed of adoption, noting that streaming figures for some tracks – which include “a couple of cutting-edge hip-hop titles” – are on a par with Spotify, which has around 75M subscribers … 

While 10M is a big number, I’m actually surprised it’s not higher, given that it was offered...

Filmmakers fighting “Happy Birthday” copyright find...

It's been two years since filmmakers making a documentary about the song "Happy Birthday" filed a lawsuit claiming that the song shouldn't be under copyright. Now, they have filed (PDF) what they say is "proverbial smoking-gun evidence" that should cause the judge to rule in their favor.

The "smoking gun" is a 1927 version of the "Happy Birthday" lyrics, predating Warner/Chappell's 1935 copyright by eight years. That 1927 songbook, along with other versions located through the plaintiffs' investigations, "conclusively prove that any copyright that may have existed for the song itself... expired decades ago."

If the filmmakers' lawyers are right, it could mean a quick route to victory in a lawsuit that's been both slow-moving and closely watched by copyright reform advocates. Warner/Chappell has built a licensing empire based on "Happy Birthday," which in 1996 was pulling...

Here’s how the world’s favorite cartoon rabbit came to be. Animator Chuck Jones gave credit to Tex Avery for the character, but Warner Bros. had made several rabbit cartoons in the studio’s earlier years. There were cutesy rabbits and wacky rabbits, but those rabbits aren’t Bugs.

The video in the story is the first official appearance of the iconic rabbit. It’s remarkable how it still stands up today. As a kid, Bugs was my favorite of all of the Warner Bros. cartoons.

The only six stocks that matter

The Wall Street Journal:

Six firms— Amazon.com Inc., Google Inc., Apple Inc., Facebook Inc., Netflix Inc. and Gilead Sciences Inc.—now account for more than half of the $664 billion in value added this year to the Nasdaq Composite Index, according to data compiled by brokerage firm JonesTrading.

The concentrated gains are spurring concerns that soft trading in much of the market could presage a pullback in the indexes. Many investors see echoes of prior market tops—including the 2007 peak and the late 1990s frenzy—when fewer and fewer stocks lifted the broader market. The S&P 500 is up 1% this year while the Nasdaq has gained 7.4%.

Other indicators are also flashing yellow. In the Nasdaq, falling stocks have outnumbered rising stocks this year, sending the “advance-decline line” into negative territory, a phenomenon that has come before market downturns in the past, investors and analysts said.

It’s good to see that Sir Ian cooks like mom(s) did – with no idea of how much of any ingredient to put in. Just go by feel and expereince and it comes out perfectly. I’ll definitely be trying this method next time I make scrambled eggs.

NPR:

“I noticed this one little girl with these incredible eyes and I instantly knew that this was really the only picture I wanted to take,” he says.

She would become the subject of McCurry’s iconic photograph “The Afghan Girl” — one of National Geographic’s most popular covers.

It is one of the most incredible portraits to ever appear in National Geographic and the back story is fascinating.

12-inch macbook w/moshi muse 12, iglaze 12, ivisor 12 and clearguard 12. photo ©2015 Steven sande. 

Three weeks on a cruise ship with my 12-inch Retina MacBook turned my emotional attachment to the lightweight laptop from "like" to "love". So how do you protect something you value? That's an answer provided by accessory manufacturer Moshi, which has a full line of goodies designed to keep your 12-inch MacBook safe from drops, spills, scratches, and other catastrophes.  Today I'm looking at the Moshi Muse 12 (US$44.95), iGlaze 12 ($54.95), iVisor 12 ($34.95) and ClearGuard 12 ($24.95), four different...

A report from Macotakara has breathed new life into speculation about a possible iPad Air 3 and supports previous rumors that the new iPad mini 4 will be thinner than previous models. The blog cites sources saying the iPad mini 4 will have the same 6.1 mm thickness found in the iPad Air 2, making it slimmer than the 7.5mm thick iPad mini 3. The report also notes that the updated 8MP iSight camera found in the iPad Air 2 will likely make its way into…

Apple Watch to be sold at Best Buy

The Wall Street Journal:

One month after Apple Inc. started selling Apple Watch at its own stores, the company said it will bring the device to Best Buy stores in August.

Apple said its smartwatch will be available at more than 100 Best Buy stores in the U.S., expanding to over 300 outlets before the holiday shopping season. Best Buy will be the first major U.S. retailer beside Apple to sell the device.

This is a sign Apple wants to get the Watch in front of even more customers and that they have caught up on demand. It’s also in preparation for the upcoming holiday season when Apple expects the Watch to be a huge seller for Christmas.

Huge Counterfeit iPhone Maker Shut Down in China

A Beijing business making counterfeit iPhones failed to follow one of Mac Geek Gab's tenets: Don't get caught. The business produced over 41,000 knock-off iPhones before police raided their factory and shut them down.

The Mac Observer Spin: Sure, you can make counterfeit Samsung Galaxy smartphones, but there's big money in knock-off iPhones-until you get caught.

Disney could respond to the increase trend toward cord-cutting by offering direct consumer access to ESPN, says Bob Iger, CEO of The Walt Disney Company. This could potentially make it available as a standalone channel on Apple TV, rather than something you can only get if you subscribe to a cable package that includes it.

But don’t rush out to cancel your cable subscription just yet – Iger, who is also on Apple’s board, said in a CNBC interview that the move won’t happen in the next five years. He was responding to questions about the future of the channel in an increasingly difficult market for cable. ...

Police raiding the facility on May 14 found 1,400 handsets and…

Rumor: Thinner iPad mini 4 will resemble iPad Air 2...

Japanese blog Macotakara, which often publishes accurate information about unreleased Apple products and company news, today claims to have some reliable information on the yet-to-be-announced, upcoming iPad mini 4. Today’s report claims that the iPad mini 4 will look a lot like a smaller version of the current iPad Air 2.

That’s not saying a whole lot considering the current version also looks a lot like a smaller iPad Air 2 in its design, but the report adds that the fourth-gen will adopt the iPad Air 2’s 6.1mm thickness, down from the current 7.5 mm, as well as its improved 8MP front-facing camera. In...

Review: Boostcase’s Bloc is a boxy, portable Apple...

Most of the accessories I’ve reviewed for 9to5Mac require little explanation — they’re the second, third, or tenth iteration of a concept we’ve seen many times before. Marked with “Carte Blanche” branding, Boostcase’s new Bloc ($60-$80) is something new… and as such, it mightn’t completely make sense at first blush. It’s not just an Apple Watch stand like the many others I’ve covered: it’s actually a standalone charging dock. With its own built-in power source. Made from your choice of wood ($60), aluminum ($80), or steel ($80).

It’s as minimalist of a design as docks can get: a big, solid-feeling box hiding your Apple Watch Magnetic Charging Cable and a 2000mAh battery inside...

Good News, Apple Watch, You’re Coming to Best Buy

Best Buy will be the first big retailer to sell Apple Watch outside of Apple's own retail stores starting in August. Adding Apple Watch to its in-store product lineup at Best Buy expands in store availability in a big way, which is good news for people who don't live near an Apple Store, and helps boost the idea that it's a product for everyone and not just the tech crowd or shopping elite.

The Mac Observer Spin: Best Buy's smart watch display is so bad it's embarrassing. It's a good thing Apple has its own store-in-a-store displays where Apple Watch can stand out.

Beijing police have raided and closed down a factory which employed hundreds of workers on six production lines to make more than 41,000 counterfeit iPhones – some of which made it to the United States, reports Reuters. The total value of the fake phones was estimated at 120M Yuan ($19M). While the raid took place in May, Chinese authorities only shared details yesterday.

Police arrested nine people, including a married couple who led the operation, after a raid in May on the factory, run under the guise of a gadget maintenance shop on the northern outskirts of the Chinese capital.

The investigation was prompted by a tip-off from U.S. authorities after some of the fake phones made it to the USA … ...

The industry appears to be waiting for the first major catastrophic accident before putting resources into fixing this problem at the proper level. They are slowly forming industry groups to look at it -- but at the current rate, their fix will come long after a lot of us are dead.
