ESPN app for Apple TV updated for multiple stream...

Have a fourth-generation Apple TV and a hankering to watch four college football games simultaneously? If you're a subscriber to a cable or satellite service that offers ESPN and use the ESPN Apple TV app, check later today for a new version of the app that will let you watch four live feeds from ESPN simultaneously.

The update was reported by Recode today, and apparently users just need to long-press on the Siri Remote while watching an ESPN feed to invoke a split-screen viewing capability. With the capability, it's possible to display four streams at the same time. ESPN expects the new feature to be popular this fall, when it can broadcast up to 55 college football games on any Saturday.

Apple joined more than a dozen other prominent technology companies in filing a brief with the Supreme Court opposing warrantless use of a cellphone’s location data, CNET reports.

In the friend-of-the-court brief, the companies argue “that users rely on technology companies to process their…

Strategy Analytics reports that Apple's iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are still the world's most popular smartphones as of the end of June, well ahead of the newer Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+.

In the April through June quarter, Apple shipped an estimated 16.9 million units of iPhone 7 and 15.1 million units of the iPhone 7 Plus.

By comparison, Strategy Analytics estimates that the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ shipped 10.2 million and 9 million units respectively. These phones were released in...

Face ID anti-FUD: Easing anxiety over the unannounced

Rene Ritchie, iMore:

Apple hasn’t even announced Face ID, the rumored facial identity scanner that would join or replace Touch ID, the fingerprint identity scanner, on the next generation of iPhones 8, but already we’re seeing a great deal of concern and even fear over how it will and won’t work.

And:

One of the biggest areas of fear, uncertainty, and doubt surrounding a potential Face ID facial identity scanner is that it will make it easier to law enforcement and government agencies to gain access to our devices.

Rene digs into the concern itself (someone could grab my phone and point it at my face to unlock it) and explores the validity of that worry.

A solid read, all the way through. Rene is a smart cookie.

Personally, I see Face ID and Touch ID as roughly equivalent in terms of someone using me to break into my phone. Add to that, Apple has not yet announced such a product. I’d prefer to save my worry for something a bit more tangible...

∞ Accidentally Famous: The story behind the original...

[VIDEO] This is from a Ted Talk Susan Bennett gave last year. Watch the video embedded in the main Loop post. One particular nugget (about 1:17 in):

One of the original engineers was from Norway. His name was Dag Kittlaus. He was responsible for naming Siri. In Norwegian, the name Siri means “beautiful woman who guides you to victory”.

Fascinating to see Susan Bennett tell these origin stories. My sense, from the iOS 11 beta, it that Siri is moving toward a more generic, machine generated voice. Yet, in the latest commercials (with The Rock), Susan appears to do all the Siri voice work.

It’ll be interesting to see how all this will play out. Will Susan be “classic Siri”?

A time when all the links on the internet could fit...

Motherboard:

During its initial printing run, International Data Group printed just 7,500 copies of DOS for Dummies.

And:

By 1993, the series had sold 1.3 million copies on its own. Now there are 1,950 individual books in the series, covering a whole lot of things that have nothing to do with computing, and the books have sold upwards of 300 million titles.

And:

Recently, I bought a book—quaint, I know—and I’m probably the only person to have purchased this book or anything like it in more than 20 years.

It’s a reference book, the kind that you can still pick up at Barnes and Noble today. But it’s best described as what you’d get if you combined a phone book, a Matthew Lesko free money guide, and the internet.

That book is really the crux of the article. A fascinating look back at a time before Google, when the Internet was but a toddler.

As the battle to create original content for online video services continues, we get a glimpse into Apple's plans for the coming year. According to a report from The Wall Street Journal, Apple has a budget of $1 billion to spend in 2018 to "procure and produce" original content. The iPhone maker could acquire and produce up to 10 shows next year with this money, which will be largely left in the hands of new Apple hires Jamie Erlicht and Zack Van Amburg. Erlicht and Van Amburg are former presidents from Sony Pictures Television that moved to Apple in June to oversee video content strategy and production.

Apple readies $1 billion war chest for Hollywood...

Wall Street Journal:

Apple Inc. (AAPL) has set a budget of roughly $1 billion to procure and produce original content over the next year, according to people familiar with the matter–a sign of how serious the iPhone maker is about making a splash in Hollywood.

Combined with the company’s marketing clout and global reach, that immediately makes Apple a considerable competitor in a crowded market where new media players and traditional media companies are vying to acquire original shows. The figure is about half what Time Warner Inc.’s HBO spent on content last year and on par with estimates of what Amazon.com spent in 2013, the year after it announced its move into original programming.

And:

Programming costs can range from more than $2 million an episode for a comedy to more than $5 million for a drama. An episode of some high-end shows such as “Game of Thrones” can cost more than $10 million to produce.

The back-to-back success of the original...

That's music to studios' ears, and a tune they have been expecting for some time -- especially after Apple hired two top Sony TV executives in June. We still don't know what Apple wants to do with that content: The Wall Street Journal says Apple wants to make up to 10 "Game of Thrones" -- or "House of Cards"-scale shows, but that's not enough to launch a full-scale subscription service.

The decision of the popular writing app Ulysses to switch from a one-off purchase to a monthly or annual subscription has attracted a great deal of criticism. Here’s a sprinkling of views from the comments.

Subscribe to a text editor? I’m out.

I bought this on iOS last week. As far as I’m concerned, that was a total waste of money now they’re moving to this subscription model.

This “rent your software” crap needs to stop, and people need to stop defending it.

Ulysses is a great app and I wish the developers all the best, but I’m out, looking for alternatives.

Feral Interactive has announced that BioShock Remastered, a version of the first-person shooter running in 1080p, will be released for macOS on Aug. 22 to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the game’s original release. It was originally developed by Irrational Games and published by 2K for Windows and console.

Rumor: Next-gen iPhone could see increased thickness...

The next-gen iPhone could be a bit thicker than the current model.

A current rumor has it that one planned change for the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhones expected next month is a material return from aluminum backs to glass, and now a new rumor claims that shift will result in a slightly thicker casing.

Giga Apple, a German web blog, has cited a case maker who claims to have contacts within iPhone maker Foxconn. The blog has reported at least a 0.1mm increase in thickness. The blog quoted a leaked spec document that stated that the upcoming iPhone 7s will have a slight increase on all dimensions.

Apple has increased the thickness of its iPhone models in the past, such as when the iPhone 6 went to the iPhone 6s and increased the thickness by 0.2mm due to 3D Touch and the pressure sensitive display. This year the change, if true, is expected to be due to the shift to glass from aluminum which serves as a pass through for rumored wireless (inductive) charging....

Apple patent involves Siri helping with...

Siri, Apple’s personal digital assistant, may one day help you determine why you’re having problems with the accessibility features on an iOS, watchOS, tvOS and perhaps even a macOS device. The company has been granted a patent (number 9,733,821) for “voice control to diagnose inadvertent activation of accessibility features.”

According to the patent, the electronic device in question receives a user input indicating that the user is having difficulty operating the electronic device. The device then determines whether a setting was changed on the device within a predetermined time period prior to receiving the user input. When a first setting was changed within the predetermined time period prior to receiving the user input, the device restores the changed setting to a prior setting.

Accessibility features provide solutions that allow the elderly, young children, or people with disabilities to operate electronic devices. Apple says that, while these features are...

In the UK, Belgium and France, the leading payment method is bank card. In Italy, bank cards are about equal with PayPal in usage, but online consumers from Germany and Switzerland prefer invoices at a much higher rate than cards. Across Eastern Europe, online bank card payments are increasing, but cash on delivery is still the most preferred option in countries like Romania and Hungary.

A survey cited in the report names convenience, security, and speed as the leading criteria when deciding on a payment method in Europe. When looking at the consumer decision to make payments via mobile devices, shoppers are mostly...

TMO put together a list of apps, websites, and other tips to help you get the most out of this once in a lifetime event. We just updated our list with more resources including an interactive Web-based eclipse map, and additional places where you may still be able to find protective eyewear.

Welcome to AWT TV, a weekly show featuring Steve Sande, Dennis Sellers and Marty Edwards of Apple World Today. Each week we'll discuss what's happened in the world of Apple, talk about new apps and accessories, maybe even have a demonstration or two of the latest software.  Be sure to subscribe to the Apple World Today video channel on YouTube.

It's one week until the August 21, 2017 Total Solar Eclipse across America, so Steve and Marty discuss the eclipse, apps that can help you find the best location to observe totality, and more. If you're totally unfamiliar with what's going to happen, this show is well worth watching.

Twelve South throws MacBook owners a Curve

If you have a MacBook of any sort, you may find looking down at the screen to be uncomfortable. That's why MacBook stands that elevate the device above a desk or table are so popular, making it simple for anyone to have a MacBook screen at the proper ergonomic height while using an external keyboard and mouse/trackpad for data entry. Today, Twelve South announced the Curve, a US$49.99 matte black aluminum stand that is a new take on an old classic.

That's right -- if the design of the Curve looks somewhat familiar, it's because Twelve South Creative Director and co-founder Andrew Green designed the original "iCurve" stand back in 2003 for Griffin Technology. As Green notes in his blog entry, "I knew someday I wanted to refresh the classic design for the...

Apple and other tech firms have submitted a amicus brief in a case before the U.S. Supreme Court, expressing concerns about warrantless police access to cellphone location data, notes AppleInsider.

Airbnb, Cisco, Dropbox, Evernote, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Mozilla, Snap, Twitter, and Verizon join the Cupertino, California-based company in arguing that the court should "refine the application of certain Fourth Amendment doctrines to ensure that the law realistically engages with Internet-based technologies and with people's expectations of privacy in their digital data."

All this involves the case of Timothy Carpenter v. United States. It involves a string of armed robberies that occurred over a two-year period. A group of at least five men — lead by Carpenter — would go into cellphone stores armed with guns,...

Portable SSDs are finally starting to come down in price as competition is continuing to ramp up between manufacturers. In the spring we saw Western Digital unveil a new line of USB-C drives designed for Apple’s latest MacBooks. Fast forward to today, and Samsung is refreshing its popular external storage solutions with its new T5 offerings.

USB-C is at the forefront of these new Samsung drives but those still rocking USB-A will be able to take advantage, too. Hidden amongst today’s announcement is that the T5 lineup will be able to hit speeds up to 540MB/s, which is right on level with Samsung’s internal desktop SSDs. More details below.

I’ve already said how important the right protective eyewear is and I’ll say it again: If you don’t use ISO 12312-2 certified eye protection to watch the eclipse you’ll damage your eyes and may go blind. Eye protection that meets the ISO standard is getting harder to find with the eclipse only days away, but the American Astronomical Society has an awesome list of glasses and retailers that may have them on its website. If you don’t have your eclipse glasses yet this is a handy resource to track some down before next Monday.

While the iPhone 8 will feature an all-new bezel-less design, the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus are expected to look much like the current flagship iPhones.

One change for the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhones expected next month is a material return from aluminum backs to glass, and now a new rumor claims that shift will result in a slightly thicker casing.

Huawei overtakes Apple in the Central and Eastern...

Samsung led the smartphone market in Central and Eastern Europe in Q2 2017, shipping 4.9 million units, a year-on-year increase of 14%, according to Canalys. This was due to strong demand for Galaxy A and J series products, which have been updated this year, adds the research group.

China-based Huawei retook the number two spot from Apple in Central and Eastern Europe in the second quarter (Q2) of 2017. It shipped 1.8 million smartphones to take a 12% market share, beating Apple by fewer than 50,000 units. Its strength was in low-to-mid-range products, with the P10 Lite becoming its best-seller in the region.

“Huawei slipped behind Apple briefly in Q1 2017,” says Canalys Analyst Ben Stanton. “Apple did an excellent job of upselling its installed base to the iPhone 7 Plus, whereas Huawei suffered the fallout from its extremely aggressive end to 2016. It built a great deal of channel...
