Former Apple salesman claims Apple canned him for...

A former Apple salesman has filed suit against the company in Pennsylvania federal court alleging he was fired for reporting racial profiling against black customers, and that his cancer treatment and Seventh Day Adventist faith may also have played a role in his being terminated, reports Law 360.

Philly resident Cori Fisher worked at the Philadelphia Apple Store from 2010 to 2016, first as an Apple Store “expert” and later as a “specialist.” According to allegations contained in his lawsuit, the Apple Store racially profiled black customers. Fisher claims that he witnessed a store manager asking a cop to get some...

Apple To Develop Its Own GPU, UK Chip Designer...

From a report on AnandTech: In a bombshell of a press release issued this morning, Imagination has announced that Apple has informed their long-time GPU partner that they will be winding down their use of Imagination's IP. Specifically, Apple expects that they will no longer be using Imagination's IP in 15 to 24 months. Furthermore the GPU design that replaces Imagination's designs will be, according to Imagination, "a separate, independent graphics design." In other words, Apple is developing their own GPU, and when that is ready, they will be dropping Imagination's GPU designs entirely. This alone would be big news, however the story doesn't stop there. As Apple's long-time GPU partner and the provider for the basis of all of Apple's SoCs going back to the very first iPhone, Imagination is also making a case to investors (and the public) that while Apple may be dropping Imagination's GPU designs for a custom design, that Apple can't develop a new GPU in isolation -- that any GPU...

iPad sales falling for 12 quarters straight? Not...

It’s been an accepted truth for years now: iPad sales are declining. Apple’s own figures show that sales have declined for twelve straight quarters.

But that doesn’t tell the whole story, suggests Above Avalon, citing the Fiksu data shown above. It’s actually the iPad mini whose sales are shrinking. Exclude these, and the combined 9.7- and 12.9-inch sales are actually flat to slightly up over the past year …

A California federal judge has ordered Unwired Planet to turn over to Apple documents from its U.K. patent suit against Samsung, Huawei Technologies and Google, finding that the information is relevant to an upcoming trial over wireless technologies, according to Law360.

In July 2016, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit handed down an opinion vacating in part a 2015 summary judgment that found Apple not in infringement of certain cellular and voice recognition patents by Unwired Planet. The company sued Apple in 2012, claiming a variety of Apple products infringed 10 of its patents for cellular data transmission, voice recognition systems, device provisioning and other related technologies.

The MIT Dropouts Who Created Ms. Pac-Man

I found the whole article fascinating, but this part in particular grabbed my attention:

Macrae and Curran’s arcade route – a series of machines they owned and operated both for their own profit and for the benefit of students – quickly expanded to three dorms, but they soon had trouble with declining revenues as people began to master the games. As arcade operators themselves, they had a direct financial stake in making the games more interesting. So they did what any clever MIT student would do in that situation: confront the problem with mathematical precision.


At this point in the video game world there were these kits called speed-up kits or enhancement kits that were being sold directly to arcade owners. The first really successful one was for Asteroids because people learned how to beat Asteroids, and they could play forever on a quarter. So somebody game up with a little circuit that you could clip on, and wow, it made the game much more difficult...

According to the Financial Times (which requires a subscription), Apple plans to stop using Imagination Technologies intellectual property within two years, ending its royalty payments. 

The tech giant is working on its own custom graphics architecture to control more of the core technology, in the same way that it already architects custom CPU silicon designs, the article adds. 9to5Mac says this suggests that Apple will be using a custom GPU stack in the Apple A12 chip.

I find the move interesting as, in March, Imagination Technologies unveiled its next-generation PowerVR Furian architecture, an entirely new GPU [graphics processing unit]...

Apple wants to sell HBO, Showtime and Starz in a...

Peter Kafka, Recode:

Apple isn’t done trying to sell you pay TV.

Here’s Apple’s latest proposal: It wants to sell consumers a premium TV bundle, which combines HBO, Showtime and Starz.

Apple already sells each of those channels individually. But it has approached the three networks about rolling them up into a single package, as conventional pay TV operators sometimes do.

No value in a bundle unless it is cheaper than the sum of its parts. And that’s been a tough thing for Apple to achieve, at least so far.

Apple to roll their own graphics processors for...

Imagination Technologies:

Imagination Technologies Group plc (LSE: IMG, “Imagination”, “the Group”) a leading multimedia, processor and communications technology company, has been notified by Apple Inc. (“Apple”), its largest customer, that Apple is of a view that it will no longer use the Group’s intellectual property in its new products in 15 months to two years time, and as such will not be eligible for royalty payments under the current license and royalty agreement.

That is a major blow to the company. Their stock dropped about 60% on the news, shaving hundreds of millions off the market value in just one day.

But Imagination will not go quietly:

Apple has used Imagination’s technology and intellectual property for many years. It has formed the basis of Graphics Processor Units (“GPUs”) in Apple’s phones, tablets, iPods, TVs and watches. Apple has asserted that it has been working on a separate, independent graphics design in order to control its...

Rumor: Apple said to be among corporations bidding...

Apple may just be in a bidding war for Toshiba’s NAND memory unit.

A report from the Korean Herald states that Apple, Amazon, Google and others are in a war for Toshiba’s NAND memory division, which accounts for 20 percent of the NAND market.

There are reported to be 10 bidders in total, although specific price points and bid amounts have yet to be made public. According to a separate report, however, U.S. equity form Silver Lake and chipmaker Broadcom offered 2 trillion yen, or $18 billion, for the business.

It had been previously reported that Apple suppliers TSMC and Foxconn had teamed up to attempt to acquire Toshiba’s NAND business. The current report marks the first instance in which Apple itself seems be trying to acquire it. It’s possible, however, that Foxconn and TSMC are negotiating on behalf of Apple or that local media has confused Foxconn’s efforts with Apple individually.

At present, the “most attractive bidder”, per the current report...

Apple's building its own graphics processor for...

Apple will soon stop using intellectual property from Imagination Technologies Group for graphics processing units for its iPhone and other devices, as it is working on a separate, independent graphics design for its products, the chip technology company said Monday.

But the U.K. company is not giving up without a fight as it doubts Apple can develop a brand new GPU without infringing Imagination’s intellectual property.

Apple held an 8.5 percent share of the issued share capital of Imagination as of April 30 last year. The iPhone maker said in a filing in March last year that it had discussions with Imagination about a possible acquisition, though it did not have plans to make an offer at that time. Apple is Imagination's largest customer and it described the iPhone maker as "essential to the business of the Group" in its annual report for 2016.

LastPass exploit discovered, company scrambles to...

A serious vulnerability was recently discovered in the popular LassPass password manager and developers are scrambling to fix the issue which makes it possible for malicious websites to steal user passcodes and in some cases execute malicious code on computers running the program.

The flaw, which affects the most recent version of the browser extension, was briefly described on Saturday, March 25th, by Tavis Ormandy, a researcher with Google’s Project Zero vulnerability reporting team. When people have the LastPass binary running, the vulnerability allows malicious websites to execute code of their choice. Even when the binary isn’t present, the flaw can be exploited in a way that lets malicious sites steal passwords from the protected LastPass vault. Ormandy said he developed a proof-of-concept exploit and sent it to LastPass officials. Developers now have three months to patch the hole before Project Zero discloses technical details.

Future Apple Watch bands may have tightness sensors

Future Apple Watch bands may have tightness sensors. Apple has been granted a patent (number 20170086742) for “band tightness sensing.”

According to the invention, the smartwatch has a processing unit and a health sensor included in a housing, a band operable to couple the housing to a body part of a user, and a tightness sensor coupled to the band. The tightness sensor is operable to produce a signal indicative of a tightness of the band on the user's body part. 

The processing unit determines a tightness of the band based on the signal and perform one or more actions based on the tightness Such actions may include evaluating the signal for changes in the tightness of the band according to operational tolerances of the health sensor, providing output directing the user to adjust the band to improve operation of the health sensor, monitoring changes in the tightness of the band and adjusting a measurement obtained by the health sensor, and more.

macOS and iOS market share both up in March

According to the latest market share survey from NetMarketShare, the market share for both macOS and iOS was up in March.

According to the report, among desktop operating systems, macOS had 6.27% of the global market share in March, up from from 6.19% percent in February (that’s global market share; in the U.S. it’s over 13%).

Today, Apple announced that it will stop using Imagination Technologies intellectual property within two years, ending its royalty payments. $IMG stock plummeted in wake of the news, falling by 70% to eight-year lows.

Steve Wozniak's Biographer Pranked By Woz'...

An anonymous reader writes:
Gina Smith is the co-author of Steve Wozniak's 2006 biography. On the day that Steve Jobs died, she posted a poignant story Woz had shared about their early days in Silicon Valley, remembering how Jobs sold his Volkswagen van while Woz sold his calculator to raise funds to build the first Apple 1 computer kit.

The post includes a picture of 22-year-old Steve Jobs standing next to young Steve Wozniak. But there's also an unexpected figure in the background wearing a black ski hat and glasses. It's "tourist guy," the figure from a 9/11 meme whose stoic face was spliced into the background of everything from the explosion of the Hindenburg to the Kennedy assassination, and even into the original Star Trek and Quentin Tarantino's Reservoir Dogs. The picture is attributed to Margaret Wozniak. So does that mean Steve Wozniak's biographer got pranked by Woz's mom?

The line between a successful prank and one that leaves users sighing, or worse, is micron-thin, and the boost to one's reputation -- or knock on it -- can hang around for some time. This year, we've rounded up some of the worst April Fools' pranks unleashed on a tech-savvy audience in recent memory. Last year, Google added a new button to Gmail that could append an animated GIF to an outgoing message.

Why bargain travel sites may no longer be bargains

I haven’t had to travel for a while but, when I did, I used aggregator sites heavily. But I always checked with the individual airline before I made the sale just in case. Looks like that’s even more true now.

Become Tech Savvy: How to approach updating software...

First time checking out this series? You’ll get the most value by starting at the beginning, however you can also use the series overview if you’d like to go buffet style.

Note for regular readers, the already tech savvy, and IT professionals: this series is designed as a resource you can share with those you are helping or for those looking to become tech savvy on their own.

Background, Expectations, & Best Practices

Staying up to date with software can sometimes be a confusing and frustrating task, but fortunately it’s a more straight forward process with iOS than compared with macOS.

First, let’s define some of the vocabulary we’ll be using. Software can refer to both the applications (apps) or the operating system (iOS) for your iPhone or iPad. We’ll define apps as computer software ...

These days, keeping up with games can be a full-time job. So how do you separate the signal from the noise, the wheat from the chaff, the Temple Runs from the Temple Jumps? Allow us to help by regularly selecting a game You Should Play.

Post-apocalyptic games often feature a dude with a gun, blasting away mutants and monsters amidst a crumbling wasteland—but Mushroom 11 is quite a bit different. It keeps the wasteland setting, punctuated with ruined sights of mankind’s existence in the backdrop, but there are no humans or firearms in sight: just a green blob.

Special April 1 report: Apple to buy Disney, Netflix...

Rumors that Apple plans to buy some “big name” companies are true. CEO Tim Cook has confirmed to Apple World Today that Apple plans to go on a shopping spree starting this month.

The company plans to buy Disney, Netflix, Tesla, Sony, Sonos, Leap Motion, Adobe, Uber, Spotify, Comcast, Dropbox, Square, SpaceX, ARM Holdings, and —surprisingly — Microsoft. Cook says Apple plans to buy the latter and discontinue Windows, so “I won’t have to listen to any more crap about Mac market share.” The purchase of Sony and Tesla means that, yes, the Apple HDTV and Apple Car projects are back on track. The SpaceX purchase will be used to develop technology so that Apple’s new “spaceship campus” will be able to, literally, fly like a spaceship.

“Hey, we’ve got a market cap of $731 billion, and all that bling is burning a whole in my pocket,” Cook said. “Oh yes, and we may buy Baskin-Robbins. Just because I like ice cream.”

Special April 1 report: Apple to introduce a 55-inch...

Those who thought Apple has forgotten its pro users may rethink their position. Sources familiar with the matter — who asked not to be named — told Apple World Today that the Cupertino, California-based company will unveil the iMac Pro Plus at June’s Worldwide Developer Conference.

Some users — such as Yours Truly — hoped Apple would unveil a 31.5-inch iMac. However, the company is kicking it up a notch with a 55-inch OLED display equipped with 10x stereo, front-facing speakers (a subwoofer is optional). Apple is also skipping 8K and jumping directly to 12K. The iMac Pro Plus will boast 11520×2160 resolution — pixel-wise, the above setup is equivalent to 12 1920×1080 displays, with a total of 24,883,200 pixels.

With its extra big display, Apple has plenty of room for lots connectivity options. The iMac Pro Plus will sport four USB-C ports, four Thunderbolt 3 ports, four USB 3.0 ports, four FireWire 800 ports, a Lightning port, four HDMI slots, and an SD Card...

Special April 1 report: Apple working on an iPhone-...

Though Apple’s automobile plans (known by the nicknames of “Project Titan” andthe “Apple Car”) have reportedly been scaled back, sources who asked not to be identified tell Apple World Today this is far from true. Instead, Apple is basing its self-driving car on its most popular product: the iPhone.

The “iPhone Car” will be called the “iCar” and be available in a glossy jet black, black, silver, gold, and rose gold editions. Powered by electricity, its battery will last hundreds of miles. A full charge will take about an hour by connecting the super-sized Lightning port on the iCar to a power outlet. 

This image is courtesy of ClickMechanic.

The Apple automobile will have a smooth finish and slightly rectangular shape with rounded edges. There are no keys or ignition switches. You open the vehicle and power it up via Touch ID.

Study Shows Laptop Batteries Often Don't Last...

A new study conducted by Which? magazine has found that "the battery life claimed by laptop manufacturers rarely lives up to reality. "Although Apple's battery life claims were the closest to reality, in the case of some other manufacturers, their laptops lasted hours less than the stated time," reports Digital Trends. From the report: In its testing, Which looked at the battery life claims of 67 different laptop models from manufacturers as diverse as Asus, Apple, Acer, HP, Dell, Lenovo, and Toshiba -- some of the world's most popular laptop makers. It found that while Apple's average claim of 10 hours was proven correct -- and was even slightly better in some cases -- Dell's claims were overstated by more than four hours, and HP, close to five. The times listed in the header image are the average claimed battery life for all of the laptops Which? has tested over the past year versus the times it recorded in its internal testing. That involved charging the laptops to full, then...

USB Canary Sends An SMS When Someone Tinkers With...

An anonymous reader quotes a report from BleepingComputer: A new tool released on GitHub last week can help paranoid sysadmins keep track of whenever someone plugs in or disconnects an USB-based device from high-value workstations. Called USB Canary, this tool is coded in Python and currently, works only on Linux (versions for Windows and Mac are in the works). The tool works by watching USB ports for any activity while the computer is locked, which generally means the owner has left his desk. If an USB device is plugged in or unplugged, USB Canary can perform one of two actions, or both. It can alert the owner by sending an SMS message via the Twilio API, or it can post a message in a Slack channel, which can be monitored by other co-workers. USB Canary can prove to be a very useful tool for large organizations that feature strict PC policies. For example, if you really want to enforce a "No USB drives" at work, this could be the tool for the job. Further, with modifications, it...

Friday 5: Creative apps for new iPad owners [Video]

We’ve heard from a number of people who recently purchased Apple’s just-released 2017 iPad. For most, if not all of these people, this was their first iPad, or their first new iPad in years.

A lot has changed since the iPad debuted. Tablets are much more capable from a hardware perspective, but there have been big changes on the software end of the spectrum as well.

The iPad has always been known as a content consumption device, but as you’ll see, it’s also a strong platform for creative-minded people. If you’re new to the iPad, you owe it to yourself to try these apps, as they truly are some of the best in the business for creative types. more…
