Typeeto: A free Mac utility for sharing your...

We nerds end up getting a lot of different devices, and sometimes it gets crazy if you want to use a Mac Bluetooth keyboard with each one of them for a test. With many keyboards, you have to un-pair from the Mac, then pair with the new device. Want to type on your Mac again? Un-pair from the device, then pair with the Mac again. Eltima Software has a great solution in the form of a free utility for Mac called Typeeto that makes it simple to use a Mac keyboard with an iPad, iPhone, Apple TV, Android device, you name it, and switch between devices in seconds

After a quick installation from the Mac App Store, launch Typeeto and you're ready to start adding devices. Doing this requires a one-time pairing through the Mac's Bluetooth System Preference panel, at which point the device...

Apple Q4 Earnings Call to be held on October 27, 2016

Time flies. It seems like it was just a couple of weeks ago that Apple held its Q3 earnings call, and now it has announced that the final earnings report of the 2016 Apple fiscal year will be released on October 27, 2016. 

As usual, the company will release earnings after the close of the stock markets on that date, followed shortly thereafter by the live streamed earnings call. If you're not familiar with the format, Apple CEO Tim Cook and CFO Luca Maestri both point out highlights of the previous quarter's financial performance before answering questions from leading Wall Street analysts. 

Expect to hear news on how well the new iPhone 7 and 7 Plus are selling, as well as hints on how well the Apple Watch Series 2 is doing (Apple never discloses how many are sold). Likewise, if there is a Mac/iPad announcement before October 27, we'll be sure to hear about the early sales performance of those devices.

We'll remind you of the earnings call before the 27th, and...

iPhones and iPads have highest SAR of gadgets sold...

Apple's iPhones and iPads have the highest electromagnetic radiation specific absorption rate (SAR) of electronic devices sold in South Korea, according to Choi Myung-gil of the country's telecom committee — as noted by ZDNet

He said data from the National Radio Research Agency shows the average radiation SAR for iPhones was 1.166 watts per kilogram (W/kg). Samsung's, in comparison, showed an average of 0.517W/kg, for products launched this year.

SAR is a measure of the rate at which energy is absorbed by the human body when exposed to a radio frequency (RF) electromagnetic field. For handsets, it measures the rate of absorption when placed near the ear. In the U.S. the SAR for cell phone radiation has been set by the Federal Communications Commission at a maximum of 1.6 watts of energy absorbed per kilogram of body weight.

Epic iPhone 7 cinematic 4K camera test [Video]

One of the bigger features with the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus is definitely the improved optics and camera quality, but exactly what does this boil down to for video enthusiasts? There’s no doubt that the iPhone 7 takes some amazing photography, but its video capabilities are far superior in my opinion. Don’t believe me? With 4K video recording, optical and digital image stabilization, and an f1.8 aperture, these new iPhones are pretty incredible…

Apple continues to lead in personal computer...

Customer satisfaction with personal computers halts a three-year slide, according to new data from the American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI). The ACSI Household Appliance and Electronics Report 2016 includes desktops, laptops, and tablet computers, as well as household appliances, televisions and computer software.

With its Mac, Apple remains the overall leader in the personal computer industry, unchanged at 84, but Samsung leaps 6% to 83 in its second year of ACSI tracking. Amazon, which manufactures only tablets, gets a 3% boost to 80, while Acer, ASUS and Dell tie for the next spot at 78. HP gains 5% to 77, followed by Lenovo (+3%) and Toshiba (+4%) at 76. The combined score for all other, smaller PC manufacturers falls 4% to the bottom of the category at 73. The Mac has topped the list for over 10 years.

Personal computers gain 1.3%  to 78 on ACSI's 100-point scale. Tablets improve by 4% to 78, reclaiming a slight edge...

The tech in two iPhone-related patents could be...

Two Apple patents have popped up that could — and let me emphasize COULD — be related to the Project Titan project, which is rumored to involve an Apple car.

Patent number 9,453,734 is for smart loading of map tiles. Systems and methods are provided for displaying a portion of a map on a mobile device of a user while the user is traveling along a route. Of course, this mobile device is probably an iPhone, but the tech could be utilized in an iPad, CarPlay system, or the dashboard of an Apple automobile.

Whatever the device is, according to the granted patent, it can use a selected route and a current location of the device to load map tiles for parts of the map that are upcoming along the route. In this manner, the user can have quick access to the portions of the map that the user likely will want to view. For example, the map tiles can be loaded for the next 50 Km, and then when the stored tiles reaches only 25 Km ahead, another 25 Km of tiles can...

On a regular basis, Apple World Today posts a list of notable new apps or app updates that have been released. They may not necessarily be new, but they're popular and deserve mention. Here are today's picks.

The touch-sensitive Home button on the iPhone 7 is likely intended as a stepping stone toward that goal, and an Apple patent published back in May described the technology Apple is most likely to adopt: ultrasonic imaging.

Demonstrating that this is not just a concept but technology that works in the real world, Chinese brand Xiaomi has today launched a new phone that uses that exact type of embedded...

Future Macs may watch you watching them thanks to a...

Future Macs may watch you watching them. Let me explain. Apple has been granted a patent (number 9,454,225) for “gaze-based display control.” It involves a method for receiving an image such as the eye of someone looking at a Mac, and identifying, based the image of the eye, a direction of a gaze performed by the user. 

Based on the direction of the gaze, a region on a display coupled to the computerized system is identified, an operation is performed on content presented in the region. The invention relates generally to human-machine interfaces, and specifically to interfaces that combine multiple user interaction modalities. 

In the patent filing, Apple notes that a number of different types of user interface devices and methods are available. Common tactile interface devices include a computer keyboard, a mouse and a joystick. Touch screens detect the presence and location of a touch by a finger or other object within the display area. Infrared remote controls are...

Apple on Monday noted that it would hold its fourth quarter earnings call on Thursday, October 27th. The call will be held at the standard time of 2PM PT/5PM ET, with the earnings release itself being sent out roughly thirty minutes before then.

The earnings call will be important in that it can show how the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are doing as products. While Apple generally offers first weekend sales numbers for new iPhone models, the company said this year that it wouldn’t due to the supply contrasts surrounding the new devices. Many analysts, including KGI, expect that Apple will report slower iPhone 7 sales than it did iPhone 6s sales at this time last year, despite increased popularity of the iPhone 7 Plus and the Jet Black color.

Some iPhone users fall for tutorial video, attempt...

This started as a joke.

And then some people took it seriously, thereby damaging their new iPhone 7 handsets and violating their warranties in the process.

A recently released tutorial video claims to show a user securing his iPhone 7 with a clamp, then drilling into the iPhone 7’s case with a 3.5 millimeter drill bit to fabricate a 3.5 millimeter headphone jack.

While this technically does produce a hole into which one might insert a headphone plug, it will not make a headphone jack. And it will leave a hole in your phone. And, if you’re not skilled with the drill, you can damage the internals of your iPhone.

And it certainly voids the warranty.

iPhone 7/7 Plus TENC case — AutoHeal thyself

If you like Just Mobile’s AutoHeal screen protector for the iPad Pro you’ll also appreciate the company’s TENC, a near-invisible, “self-mending” case for the iPhone 7/7 Plus. 

It sports the same “auto-healing smart materials with an advanced fingerprint and dust-resistant smooth-touch coating that consigns sticky-feeling screen protectors to the dustbin of history” and which repairs minor scratches to the case. And it does this while showing your Apple smartphone in all its glory 

The very-reasonably-priced ($24.95) TENC — available in crystal clear, matte clear and matte black — perfectly lines up with the iPhone’s edges (the top two corners are completely covered, and the bottom two corners are covered to the curve). It offers protection while offering easy access to all ports, buttons, switches. 

The TENC’s abrasion resistant coating keeps the case looking sharp. And its...

Apple should consider buying a 'smart glass...

Disruptive technologies like touch sensitive screens and smart glass everywhere will be one of the larger competitive issues for Apple in the not-too-distant future. However, purchasing a smart glass manufacturer -- perhaps even Corning itself-- would give Apple a competitive advantage for an "iOS everywhere" type approach. 

Buying a base product manufacturer like Corning wouldn't be outside the realm of what Apple occasionally does. Acquiring a glass manufacturer -- specifically a smart glass manufacturer -- would be right in line with Apple's history and offer the potential for a strategic future. Our favorite tech company could continue its fully integrated approach to extending the Apple ecosystem everywhere.

Corning, especially, would be a great choice. Apple’s iPads and iPhones could be more impact resistant by using the company's Gorilla glass. The company's Willow Glass could enable even thinner Mac displays.

From releasing a surprise mixtape on iTunes last year, to an exclusive stream of Views, all the way down to his own Beats 1 radio show. It looks like Drake shows no signs of stopping.

After teasing it on his Instagram (and then removing it) it looks like Drake’s short film, Please Forgive Me, is now available to stream exclusively on Apple Music. Potentially riding off that high, the artist also shared a picture on Instagram commemorating Apple Music’s largest stream count for an album ever.

New Mac Trojan uses the Russian space program as a...

Security researchers have found a new Mac OS X malware that appears to be targeting the aerospace industry.

The Trojan, called Komplex, can download, execute, and delete files from an infected Mac, according to security firm Palo Alto Networks. Interestingly, the Trojan will also save a PDF document to the infected system concerning the Russian space program.

The PDF document details planned Russian space projects from 2016 to 2025, but it acts as a decoy, Palo Alto Networks said in Monday blog post.

In reality, the Trojan is a package of tools that will attempt to secretly communicate with its creators' command-and-control servers. This includes sending back data on the version, username, and process list running on the infected system. The Trojan can also receive instructions, and it will forward the results to the control servers.

Review: Mass Fidelity Core Bluetooth Speaker

Mass Fidelity's Core ($599) looks to bring the performance of larger high-end speakers into a small, portable Bluetooth speaker using wave field synthesis. The black and chrome speaker houses five custom designed drivers and a woofer which fires downward, all with 120W of power. The speaker comes with its own AC adapter, and Mass Fidelity claims that Core's battery life is an impressive 12 hours. Core can also connect to other Core units to create a multi-room wireless network. Mass Fidelity notes that Core is a Bluetooth Class 1 receiver, which should minimize dropouts and extend range — though the company only lists the speaker's Bluetooth range at 30 feet in its spec sheet.{/exp:char_limit}

A-Shirt Makes Apple-Inspired Shirts for Apple Fans

Have you heard of A-Shirt? They produce Apple-inspired T-shirts for fans of the company. They work on a subscription model where you get a new shirt every two months. The shirts are designed by designers all over the world. In the image I included, the white T-shirt with the drawings of the Two Steves is the current shirt being offered. Each shirt is a one-time production, and once they’re shipped, they’re gone. A-shirt even destroys the printing framed. The company also offers members a lot of content about how each shirt is created, the dyes used, the material, etc. You can sign up to get your first shirt for $25, with subsequent shirts at $50. If you commit to longer terms, the price-per-month decreases.

If you live in America and you’ve seen more than one doctor in your lifetime, you know there’s no central database where all of your medical data lives. Instead, each health care provider has a separate record, and rarely are they ever merged.

Apple is reportedly working on electronic health record software that will take advantage of all the data collected from HealthKit apps and use it in more meaningful ways—like to diagose medical conditions—and create a centralized place for all that information to live.

Part of that effort is coming from the team that made up Gliimpse, an electronic health record database centralization startup Apple acquired earlier this year. According to Bloomberg...

Microsoft debuts new Office 365 app for bartenders,...

Chances are you began your career busing tables, working retail, or doing IT work, carefully planning out your shifts week by week. A new Microsoft app for Office 365, called StaffHub, seeks to make this chore easier and replace the break room calendar. 

At first glance, StaffHub seems like just another shared calendar from Outlook or the like. There are a couple of key differences, though: Workers can swap shifts themselves or ask others to cover for them. StaffHub’s also a messaging app, so, for instance, one cook can send another cook a message about an ingredient shipment that’s scheduled to arrive. (Microsoft didn’t say, but those employee-to-employee messages would presumably be monitored by an employer.) The other difference from your typical shared calendar, unfortunately, is the price: A company must be signed up with at least an Office 365 kiosk license to use it, which costs $4 per user, per month.

Obscura: Shoot RAW images with your iOS 10 iPhone

Automatic (L) and manual (R) controls (image via obscuraapp.com)

For most people shooting photos with a digital camera or iPhone, there's not a lot of thought put into what format the file is saved in. Back in the days when storage was limited both in SD cards and smartphones, files were always saved in JPEG format, meaning that they were compressed immediately to save space. But compression has an effect on the quality of digital photos, so professionals save in RAW, uncompressed format. iOS 10 now has the ability to work with RAW files, but the standard Camera app still resorts to JPEG. That's why apps like Obscura (US$4.99) from developer Ben Rice McCarthy are gaining popularity as a way to shoot RAW images with the iPhone or iPad.

Obscura works on the iPhone SE, 6s, 6s Plus, 7, 7 Plus, and the 9.7" iPad Pro, and provides the type of manual control that usually has...

HPE and Apple: The Speed of Image Transformation


Hewlett Packard Enterprise and Apple are very different companies this decade, having shifted their models from a strategic customer/innovation focus to one that's more tactical -- and tied far more closely to quarterly profit. They are hardly alone, and this speaks to why Michael Dell and Joe Tucci worked so hard to take their companies private, because this unfortunate trend is not tied to any one industry or any one country. Both HPE and Apple increasingly are defined not by creative products but by complaining customers.

You shouldn’t get the iPhone 7 Smart Battery Case...

The iPhone 7 is Apple’s first officially water resistant phone. We put this water resistance to the test on video in our recent post about the top iPhone 7 features. Some people have also wondered how cases might fare when subjected to water. A case like Apple’s iPhone 7 Silicone Case would be okay, but I certainly wouldn’t recommend submerging Apple’s iPhone 7 Leather Case.

What about the iPhone 7 Smart Battery Case? It features the same material used in the silicone case, yet includes a 2365 mAh battery sealed inside. Is it safe to get the Smart Battery Case wet? Apple’s official response to that question is a very unambiguous no. Yet, that didn’t stop AirParrot Remote developer,...

Review: Lutron Caséta In-Wall Dimming Kit is the...

Apple’s HomeKit feature lets you control “smart” lights with Siri or Apple’s new Home app on iOS 10, and there are generally two ways to make your home lighting more intelligent. You can change your light bulbs to “connected” bulbs that talk to a bridge over Wi-Fi, or you can replace your light switches with “connected” switches that take the same bridge approach.

The Lutron Caséta kit takes the latter approach by replacing your existing light switches with smart switches that make your traditional light bulbs work with Siri. There are notable differences between both approaches including cost and ease-of-setup which I’ll unpack below. And if bells and whistles don’t impress you, Lutron takes the crown for having the most elegant solution to HomeKit lighting with one exception…
