Nongünz game blasts onto the Mac

Sindiecate Arts has released Nongünz on Steam for macOS, Windows and Linux. It's a $6.99 “gothic retro” game.

Here’s how it's described: “The game is a puzzle in itself, a secret to be discovered. Each run has you fighting through a procedurally-generated dungeon filled with hordes of monsters made from human limbs and giblets. Build up your score by executing stylish combos and spend the rewards on your expanding band of lost souls and death cultists.

 “As you advance, fill your graveyard base with praying cultists, self-scourging martyrs and somber gravediggers. Use their special shops including shops, slot machines, dungeon shortcuts and special skills."

A Tip for Apple in China: Your Hunger for Revenue...

Li Yuan, writing for the WSJ: Apple's latest predicament centers on its App Store. Last month, Apple told several Chinese social-networking apps, including the wildly popular messaging platform WeChat, to disable their "tip" functions to comply with App Store rules (Editor's note: the link could be paywalled; alternative source), according to executives at WeChat and other companies. That function allows users to send authors and other content creators tips, from a few yuan to hundreds, via transfers from mobile-wallet accounts. Those transfers are offered by the social-networking apps free of charge, as a way to inspire user engagement. Now, those tips will be considered in-app purchases, just like buying games, music and videos, entitling Apple to a 30% cut. For Apple, which has been observing slowing growth in mature markets, China is increasingly becoming important. But the company's my way or high-way approach might hurt the company's image in China. And that image as well as...

JSON Feed: Syndication without XML, easier for...

Long time Apple-industry developers, Brent Simmons and Manton Reece, this week announced and released JSON Feed Version 1. They say it best:

The JSON Feed format is a pragmatic syndication format, like RSS and Atom, but with one big difference: it’s JSON instead of XML.

For most developers, JSON is far easier to read and write than XML. Developers may groan at picking up an XML parser, but decoding JSON is often just a single line of code.

Our hope is that, because of the lightness of JSON and simplicity of the JSON Feed format, developers will be more attracted to developing for the open web.

Sounds good to me. TMO now has a JSON Feed as well. If you’d like to see it in action,...

Data Watchdog Cautions Google and UK Health Partner

However, the sharing reportedly was performed without an appropriate legal basis.

Bloomberg:

An untitled portrait by Jean Michel-Basquiat sold for $110.5 million at Sotheby’s in New York, setting a record for any American artist. The buyer was Japanese online retail magnate Yusaku Maezawa.

And:

The painting, which had a presale estimate of more than $60 million, was bought at auction in 1984 for $19,000 by the late collectors Jerry and Emily Spiegel.

We were chatting about this purchase yesterday and someone asked how much that 1984 $19,000 was worth in today’s dollars. An interesting question. Take a guess, purely based on inflation. Then go to this inflation calculator and see how close you came.

Avangrid Renewables, the project developer for Apple’s Montague (Oregon) Wind Power Facility, is seeking a permit amendment for the Montague Wind Power Facility that would allow it to use a turbine model with a rotor diameter of 136 meters and generating capacity of 3.6 megawatts.

According to the Portland Business Journal, that’s a “big step up from the most powerful turbines spinning in the Northwest today, which can crank out 2.5 megawatts.” In its annual sustainability report last month, Apple said that Montague its “largest (renewable energy) project to date.”

Apple has solar farms, hydroelectric plants and biogas facilities in Oregon, North Carolina, California, Nevada and Arizona.

Vestager also dismissed concerns that the European Commission's August 2016 ruling that Ireland had granted Apple illegal tax benefits would harm future investment in Europe.

"I haven’t seen any evidence of that,” she said.

According to a new report from DigiTimes — TPK Holdings is charging between $18 and $22 for the technology for 3D Touch, so the 3D Touch tech in the upcoming “iPhone 8” will cost Apple more than the company anticipated. 

Due to the additional bonding of glass covers, overall processing cost for OLED-based 3D Touch solution is about 50% higher than that for the LCD-based one but the quotes for the client is about 150% higher. The Sellers Research Firm (that’s me) thinks the report is on target, which means the high-end iPhone 8 -- shown in a fanciful mock-up by iPhone 8look -- will have a price tag of $1,000 or higher.

DigiTimes also reports that Apple is said to be boosting production of its upcoming 10.5-inch iPad Pro, which means it’s “increasingly possible” we’ll see it arrive sometime over the next couple of months.

Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook is said to have been spotted on his company’s corporate headquarters wearing a new, unannounced Apple Watch accessory that could be used to measure a user’s blood sugar levels in an non-intrusive fashion.

CNBC has reported that Tim Cook has been spotted wearing the prototype sense. It’s unknown as to whether this is an Apple-made device or peripheral created by an outside medical company.

The report also said that Cook even publicly discussed the device during an appearance at the University of Glasgow back in February. He said the device helped him understand how his body reacted to the foods he eats, and allowed him to keep his blood sugar more constant.

The proposed ban on tablets and notebooks from cabin baggage on flights between Europe and the USA have reportedly been shelved …

The ban, which proposed preventing electronic devices larger than a smartphone on inbound flights to the USA from 10 airports located mostly in the Middle East and Northern Africa was offered in response to intelligence from terrorist threats.

It was later suggested that the ban might be extended to flights from the UK and other European countries, with a further report earlier this month suggesting that the idea was ‘under active consideration.’

Per the BBC, the ban may not be extended.

US and EU officials have decided against a ban on laptops and tablets in cabin baggage on flights from Europe. But after a four-hour meeting in Brussels to discuss the threats to aviation security, officials said other measures were still being considered.

The decision caused some relief among aviation experts, who stated that a...

Apple granted a patent for a headphone/speaker combo...

Apple has been granted a patent (number 20170142509) for “dual mode headphones and methods for constructing the same.” Per the invention, the headphones can be moved between a first, in-ear position and a second, speaker position. 

A sensor in the headphones can detect the current position of the headphones, and can change the mode of the circuit to correspond to the detected current position. For example, the sensor can change between an in-ear mode in which the amplifier is bypassed and a speaker mode in which the amplifier is powered and used. In some cases, the headphones can include a sensor for preventing the speaker mode when the headphones are positioned near a user's ears.

In the patent filing, Apple notes that users typically listen to content on their portable devices using headphones, although there are speakers available that can be connected to the portable devices to enable multiple users to listen in at the same time. This approach, however, may...

Soba by Bluelounge can help reduce cable clutter

By Aaron Lee

Like most Mac users, you probably suffer from cable clutter with various cables and cords littering your workspace. The $24.95 Soba by Bluelounge can help alleviate the problem.

Soba zips loose cables up and consolidates them into a single tube that you can route and affix along walls, under desks, and just about anywhere. You use the Vortex zipper in a sliding motion to open and route cables. Once the zipper passes, Vortex technology will auto-coil the tube, bundling the cables inside.

Soba comes with 10 feet of vortex tube, two end caps, three mounting caps, one y-split, one Vortex zipper tool, and five rubber bands. It's available in black and white.

Panic co-founder Steven Frank has posted an embarrassing confession: after he inadvertently downloaded and installed a compromised version of HandBrake, hackers were able to steal source code to Panic’s apps. There’s no evidence that customer information, sync data, or Panic’s Web site were compromised. However, you should avoid downloading any Panic app that doesn’t come directly from Panic’s Web site or the Mac App Store, and Steven is asking users to report any unofficial versions that people see in the wild. Kudos to Panic for being so open about this and handling it quickly, and take this as a real-world lesson in why it’s important to stay alert when it comes to online security.

Component cost for 3D Touch module in OLED iPhone to...

The iPhone 8 is expected to debut later this year touting a 5.8-inch OLED ‘bezel-less’ display incorporated into a new-design glass and stainless chassis. There have been many rumors about Apple increasing the price of the model above the current iPhone range (128 GB iPhone 7 Plus tops out at $969), with some people referring to the device as an ‘iPhone Pro’.

Higher component costs support the idea of a premium price tag, and this is exactly what Economic Daily News is reporting today. It claims that the 3D Touch module in the OLED iPhone will cost Apple 150% more than the equivalent parts in the LCD iPhone 7 …

Apple Is Lobbying Against Your Right To Repair...

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Motherboard: Lobbying records in New York state show that Apple, Verizon, and the tech industry's largest trade organizations are opposing a bill that would make it easier for consumers and independent companies to repair your electronics. The bill, called the "Fair Repair Act," would require electronics companies to sell replacement parts and tools to the general public, would prohibit "software locks" that restrict repairs, and in many cases would require companies to make repair guides available to the public. Apple and other tech giants have been suspected of opposing the legislation in many of the 11 states where similar bills have been introduced, but New York's robust lobbying disclosure laws have made information about which companies are hiring lobbyists and what bills they're spending money on public record. According to New York State's Joint Commission on Public Ethics, Apple, Verizon, Toyota, the printer company Lexmark, heavy...

Tim Cook Spotted Testing Glucose Monitor on Apple...

Apple CEO Tim Cook has been spotted testing a glucose monitor connected to his Apple Watch, according to unnamed sources at CNBC:

Tim Cook has been spotted at the Apple campus test-driving a device that tracks blood sugar, which was connected to his Apple Watch. A source said that Cook was wearing a prototype glucose-tracker on the Apple Watch, which points to future applications that would make the device a “must have” for millions of people with diabetes — or at risk for the disease.

We already knew Apple was working on this technology, and Mr. Cook himself said earlier this year he’s been testing one. But the new report suggests whatever Apple is working on is advanced enough to be tested in the wild, or at least the wild confines of 1 Infinite Loop.

Google Launches Google Assistant On the iPhone

At its I/O 2017 developer conference, Google announced the Google Assistant is coming to iOS as a standalone app. Previously, the only way for iOS users to get access to the Assistant was through Allo, the Google messaging app nobody uses. For those interested, you can download the Google Assistant on your iOS device here, but keep in mind that your device needs to be running iOS 9.1 or higher. VentureBeat reports: Google Assistant for iPhone won't ship on Apple's mobile devices by default, and naturally won't be as tightly integrated into the OS. But it is addressable by voice and does work with other Google apps on Apple's platform. Apple has API restrictions on iOS, so Google Assistant can't set alarms like Siri can. It can, however, send iMessages for you or start playing music in third-party apps like Spotify. You also won't be able to use the Home button to trigger Google Assistant, so you'll need to use the app icon or a widget.
