Twitter rolls out night mode in its iOS app

Now it’s easier for iPhone users to tweet past their bedtimes.

On Monday, Twitter added a night mode feature to its iOS app. When night mode is activated, the Twitter interface changes to darker hues so that Tweets are easier to read in low light, when you don’t want to be squinting at a bright white screen. The feature was originally introduced in Twitter’s Android app back in July.

Steve Wozniak Says Apple Must Fix iPhone 7 Bluetooth...

We've talked extensively about the missing headphone jack on the upcoming iPhone. While some say that the move will ruin user experience -- something that has already started to seem that way in the real world -- a few argue that someone needs to push the needle to move the technology forward. Now Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak has something to say about the missing legacy audio jack as well. He is asking Apple to fix the Bluetooth first if the company intends to give users to move to wireless headphones. From a Financial Review report: Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak has warned Apple is going to frustrate a lot of customers if it removes the headphone jack from the upcoming iPhone 7. [...] Customers wanting to use their existing, wired earbuds and headphones might have to buy an adaptor that attaches to the iPhone's Lightning port, or to whatever port does remain on the phone. "If it's missing the 3.5mm earphone jack, that's going to tick off a lot of people," Mr Wozniak told The...

iFixIt: a ‘whole bunch’ of iPhone 6 and 6 Pluses are...

According to the folks at iFixIt, repair experts from all over the world are reporting a widespread problem killing iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus devices: an unresponsive touchscreen and a gray, flickering bar at the top of the display. 

Even though the “Touch Disease” issue manifests in the display and touchscreen, replacing those components won’t fix the problem. The gray bar eventually shows up on the new screen, because the problem isn’t actually the screen at all. It’s the two touchscreen controller chips on the logic board inside the phone.

There are pages of complaints on Apple’s support forums on this issue, but at this point it appears that Apple doesn’t have a fix for the problem—aside from selling owners another phone. 

iFixIt says Apple’s in-store repair techs aren’t equipped to make repairs to the logic board. Reportedly, third-party, “unauthorized” microsoldering specialists are able...

Lyft: We’re not seeking a buyer

“Lyft is not seeking a buyer,” Zimmer told Business Insider.

“Getting approached and then having it characterized as us wanting to sell the business and failing to do so is a large mischaracterization,” he said. “If the company is approached, it doesn’t mean the company is looking.”

Lyft President John Zimmer said he was approached to sell the company and the media said they had been unsuccessful in finding a buyer. If true, that’s a pretty big mistake from the media organizations.

The Apple Watch was the runner-up in the “Overall Best Smartwatch” category by Paste Magazine. Here’s what the mag had to say about the Apple smartwatch: 

“The iPhone wasn’t the first smartphone and the iPad wasn’t the first tablet—Apple’s never been about being first. But it’s also safe to say that a competitor like Android wasn’t around when those products first hit the market. Winning the smartwatch wars won’t be nearly as easy, and though neither watchOS or Android Wear are as developed as they need to be, the ambitious nature of the Apple Watch is certainly promising.

“Despite not being round, it’s still an incredibly well-built and attractive watch. Rumors are pointing toward a forthcoming price cut, so you may want to wait for that. The sequel to the Apple Watch probably won’t be due for at least a few more months...

Recode: Amazon’s cheaper, Echo-only music service

Recode:

Amazon wants to launch a music subscription service that would work the same way services from Apple, Spotify and many others work: $10 a month, for all the music you can stream, anywhere you want to stream it.

But Amazon is also working on a second service that would differ in two significant ways from industry rivals: It would cost half the price, and it would only work on Amazon’s Echo hardware.

Industry sources say Amazon would like to launch both services in September, but has yet to finalize deals with major music labels and publishers. One sticking point, sources say, is whether Amazon will sell the cheaper service for $4 or $5 a month.

I can’t imagine a music service that I could only use in one place. One of the things I love about Apple Music is that it is always with me: on my computer, on my iPhone, iPad, in my car, always available.

I like the idea of a cheaper service, that might move me, but only if I didn’t have to...

Apple acquires personal health data startup Gliimpse

The acquisition happened earlier this year, but Apple has been characteristically quiet about it. The company has now confirmed the purchase, saying: “Apple buys smaller technology companies from time to time, and we generally do not discuss our purpose or plans.”

And this from founder Anil Sethi’s LinkedIn page:

The display will be curved at the edges while the other two models are said to be 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch models with flat LCD displays like the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, corroborating previous reports.

The report reiterates that Samsung is expected to be Apple’s primary supplier of OLED displays, but it may be unable to fully keep up with demand for both iPhones and its own Galaxy smartphones.

The study found that 90% of music streamers have listened to or created a playlist. Paid or “premium” subscribers were the most active, with eight in 10 listening to their service every day and half listening to a playlist every time that they use the service to stream music. Among those who listened to service’s playlist, nine out of ten had also created a personal playlist in the past three months.

Meridan Explorer USB DAC improves your overall...

Digital media is a wonderful thing, but it has limitations, including sound. Enter the $299 Merdian Explorer USB DAC.

The main purpose of a DAC (digital to analog converter) is to convert the input of any digital source (such as your Mac) to an analog signal that can be fed into an amplifier or active loudspeakers. A DAC device also works with headphones and designated computer speakers. The result is an efficient external amp and elimination of any computer noise.

About the size of a USB stick, the Meridian Explorer replaces -- or, rather, overrides -- your computer’s sound card. It sports a headphone amplifier with on-board analogue volume control. All this to say: it makes the audio output on your Mac sound better in every instance.

How? Audiophile music-grade electrolytic capacitors decouple the analogue audio stages, enhancing the sound quality. A big proportion...

If you need a high quality capsule microphone, Marshall Electronics' MXL AC-404 USB provides excellent voice quality on conference calls at a reasonable price (about $90). If you take advantage of free or subscription Internet conferencing services such as FaceTime or Skype, it's worth a look.

The AC-404 conference mic uses boundary microphone technology and built-in custom circuitry. It has a "sports car-ish" design that boasts 180 degree coverage and a 40Hz-16Hz frequency response. It's not exactly tiny, but it's small enough that you could toss it in a bag and carry it with you when you're on the road.

The AC-404 is USB powered and will interface with Mac and Windows computers without the need for any special drivers. For the best results, you should plug it directly into your computer rather than a hub as USB hubs can interfere with the performance.

Samsung would then re-sell these phones at a lower price, the person said, declining to be identified as the plan was not yet public. The person declined to say how big a discount the refurbished phones would be sold at, which markets the phones would be sold in or how many refurbished devices Samsung could sell. It was not clear to what extent the phones would be altered, but refurbished phones typically are fitted with parts such as a new casing or battery.

VeprIT has announced Photo Sense 2 for Mac, a new generation of the batch photo enhancement tool. 

The automatic-first approach enables users to choose their preferred workflow complexity, from completely automatic to manual, and thus appeals both to novice and more advanced photographers. Version 2 offers more efficient batch adjustment tools, image settings synchronization, custom presets, and new customization tools.

Photo Sense 2.0.0 is free (but does tout in-app purchases) on the Mac App Store for $24.99. A demo that adds a watermark to exported images) is available on...

TMO Background Mode: Interview with Electronic...

Cindy Cohn is the Executive Director of the Electronic Frontier Foundation. Founded in 1990, the EFF is a nonprofit organization defending civil liberties in the digital world. The EFF champions user privacy, free expression, and innovation through litigation, policy analysis, grassroots activism and technology development. It has won some important court cases that preserve our rights online, including the use of encryption. (Which wasn’t always a given.) Cindy and I talked at length about her career, notable cases she fought and the work of the EFF, especially in the Apple vs. FBI conflict last spring. Cindy starts with notion that “privacy is fundamental to human dignity and… we can’t have a free society unless people have a private space.” Even if that means law enforcement has to work a little harder. Cindy explains it all.

Apple's Gliimpse acquisition will help you...

Do you know if you’ve had your tetanus shot? There’s a record of it somewhere... it’s just not very easy for you to have access to it, unless you keep an organized file with all of your medical documents. Apple is apparently hoping to make that process a lot easier, while keeping your personal health data secure.

Earlier this year, Apple acquired Gliimpse, a startup with a platform for securely collecting, managing, and sharing private health records. According to Fast Company, this was the first acquisition made by Apple’s digital health team.

Amazon’s Charlie Kindel, Director of Alexa Smart Home, will be speaking at the CEDIA conference in Dallas on September 16. He’ll talk about the inspiration for voice recognition that came from Star Trek, the original series. This interview by CEDIA provides a foretaste of the presentation and includes an inspiring video of Captain Kirk voice querying the Enterprise computer. What’s also cool and interesting is Mr. Kindel’s description of how customer privacy is maintained with the blue and red indicator ring. He also points to the website a customer built to celebrate Alexa. This is nifty corporate messaging.

Apple today released the seventh developer preview of macOS Sierra since showing off the software update for the Mac at WWDC 2016. The latest release is available now through the Mac App Store. macOS Sierra’s headlining feature is Siri on the Mac with other features like Auto-Unlock which lets Apple Watch users skip the password login screen. Apple Pay is also coming to Safari with macOS Sierra, although we haven’t seen the feature live on the web yet.

Review: Audeze EL-8 Titanium Over-Ear Headphones

Audeze is an American headphone company with an impressive history of technical innovation. Recently, we were impressed by their entry-level Sine, which packed planar magnetic drivers into a classy, portable package and made us feel a little more confident about a future without headphone jacks. Based on our experience with the Sine, we excited to receive Audeze’s mid-range closed-back headphone, the EL-8 Titanium ($799). Though the EL-8 "Ti" shows many of the forward-thinking design elements that make us fans of Audeze, the complete package failed to capture our hearts and minds.{/exp:char_limit}

X-Doria Mesh Band for 42mm Apple Watch: Review and...

The black X-Doria Mesh Band on Steve's hairy wrist. Photo ©2016, Steven Sande

As an early adopter of the Apple Watch, the $149 - $199 Milanese Loop watchband always called to me...but my wallet was smart and wouldn't listen to me. Fortunately, accessory manufacturer X-Doria has come out with the new X-Doria Mesh Band for the 42mm Apple Watch at a much more affordable US$49.99 price tag. Check out this short review of the Mesh Band, then enter to win a silver X-Doria Mesh Band.

Like Apple's Milanese Loop, the X-Doria Mesh Band comes in two different finishes; black and silver. It uses the standard Apple Watch band mechanism to easily install the band on the Watch in seconds with no tools, and it uses a strong magnet as a closure to tighten the loop around your wrist.

Compared to the two...

Memories… light the corners of AI… misty programmed memories… of how to say my name…

Barbra Streisand has already given us so much. Some of the best chick flicks of all time, like The Prince of Tides and oh my God, The Way We Were. The term “Streisand effect.” Fifty studio albums. A fun new way to spell Barbara.

And now she’s getting Apple to fix Siri.

Well, a small part of Siri anyway. And she’s even told us when it’s supposedly happening: in an iOS update allegedly coming September 30.

Rumor: Apple will introduce an iPhone with a curved...

Apple will debut three new iPhone models next year, presumably the “iPhone 8” and “iPhone 8 Plus,” as well as a third model that will sport a curved OLED screen similar to the Edge versions of Samsung's Galaxy phones, claims the Japanese site, Nikkei (as noted by AppleInsider).

The “premium” handset will be 5.5 inches, perhaps larger, and have a screen bent on two sides. Nikkei didn't specifically mention OLED technology, but making a curved screen effectively requires it; the Galaxy S7 Edge uses a Super AMOLED panel, notes AppleInsider.

The prediction lines up with a July forecast by KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who thinks a 2017 iPhone will have a curved glass body and will switch from current models’ LCD displays to an OLED display. The latter will make it more flexible and...

Apple has announced its 2016 Apple Music Festival, a free annual concert series that will be held Sept. 18-30 at the London Roundhouse. The performing acts haven’t yet been named. Last year Pharrell Williams, One Direction, Florence + The Machine and Disclosure, Mumford & Sons, Carrie Underwood and Ellie Goulding, and others performed.

From the Olympic Non-Robbery to Ford Getting Out of...


There were three stories that caught my eye last week that I think deserve some additional discussion. One is the alleged robbery of U.S. Olympians followed by questions of whether it really happened because their phones weren't stolen. There may be a legitimate reason for that, and it suggests a lot of folks will be getting huge cellphone bills next month. Another eye-catching story is that Ford is getting out of the car business. The third is an NSA leak that has me wondering if we should reclassify the NSA as a criminal organization.

The new Streisand Effect: Barbra calls Tim Cook to...

Enlarge

Those of us with difficult last names are accustomed to quietly bearing the indignities of constant mispronunciation, especially from digital assistant programs like Apple's Siri. My last name (Geuss) is pronounced "Gice," but that pronunciation is so far from being phonetically logical in English that if people get close—calling me Guess or Goose—I generally don't correct them. Siri insists on calling me "Megan Juice," which is not even close (and is also a beverage). I let it slide. After all, what recourse do I have?

None. That's how much recourse I have. But I am no Barbra Streisand.

Here’s the Not So Secret Roadmap for 4K UHD TV

The old, unconsidered notion about 4K UHD TV is that it’s a gimmick by the TV industry. The assumption has been that 4K resolution can’t be utilized unless one sits really close, and the familiar HDTV is good enough. In fact, the industry is about the business of implementing a gradual, exciting technology roadmap. While this means that 4K UHD TV will be gradually including more advanced technology elements than simple resolution improvement, it also means buyers will have to be careful when and how they migrate away from older equipment. It’s all on Friday’s Particle Debris column, page 2.
