5 Samsung Galaxy S8 features Apple should steal for...

Samsung just took the wraps off its new Galaxy S8 and S8+ smartphones in a bid to make people forget about last year’s exploding Note 7 disaster. While the Galaxy S8 has a few things working against it—namely that it runs Android—Samsung gave its new flagship an impressively slick redesign. We wouldn’t mind if Apple lifted a few of the S8’s features for its 10th anniversary iPhone.

In fact, Apple is reportedly working on a few of these features already. We’re not saying that Samsung looks at Apple product rumors to define its own roadmap, but…anything’s possible.

Spotify plans ‘Traffic Jams’ TV show and, yes, it’s...

Ahead of the debut of Apple’s previously announced Carpool Karaoke TV series on Apple Music next month, Spotify is planning what sounds a lot like a knockoff of the series with its own show called “Traffic Jams,” Variety reports.

But instead of having celebrities and musicians perform a song karaoke-style, Spotify is going to have artists produce a song in a moving vehicle (innovation!). It’s hosted by comedian DoBoy who will also drive the vehicle while the artists perform in the back. So, in other words, it’s exactly like Carpool Karaoke. Not a great look for Spotify’s answer to Apple’s original content plans. The first show is set to debut April 4th and feature artists T-Pain and Southside:

Cloud services compared, or why I’m all-in on Apple...

I’ve been an Apple guy since forever. I bought the very first Macintosh back in 1984. My current mobile technology line-up is a 15-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar, 11-inch MacBook Air (now just a backup Mac), 9.7-inch iPad Pro and an iPhone SE. I’m all-in on Apple, and the ecosystem is a large part of that. Things may not always Just Work, but the Apple ecosystem gets closer to that than anyone else.

However, while I do make some use of iCloud, I’m not all-in on Apple’s cloud storage. In this piece, I compare the main cloud services out there, and finally describe the mix-and-match approach I use to get what I consider to be the best of all worlds …

Apple’s long-time head of Apple Mail Terry Blanchard is leaving the company, but he will continue working on mail apps for iOS and Mac as he joins software company Readdle as the VP of Engineering for its Spark email app. The move comes after six years as the lead of Apple’s Mail app development. Blanchard joined Apple in 2011 and led the development and QA teams for Apple Mail until joining Readdle this month.

While it’s unclear exactly why Blanchard has decided to part ways with Apple,he does hint that he shares “a fundamental vision of what the future of email should be” with Readdle.

Apple World Today Video Review: IK Multimedia iRig...

Last week, we took a look at the IK Multimedia iRig Studio Mic, a compact microphone made especially for recording sound from iPad or iPhone. The mic received a five-star rating (the top rating we give in reviews), so I was looking forward to reviewing the latest version of software designed just for the mic -- IK Multimedia iRig Recorder 3 for iOS ($7.99 plus in-app purchases). 

Sadly, I can't say as many good things about iRig Recorder 3 as I could about the iRig Studio Mic. The app comes in two flavors -- free and a $7.99 version. Right off the bat, I'd suggest getting the free version because you still have to make some significant in-app purchases in order to get the app to do anything useful.

Privacy advocates plan to fight Congress'...

Privacy advocates haven’t given up the fight after the U.S. Congress voted to allow ISPs to sell customers’ browsing histories and other personal information without their permission.

On Tuesday, the House of Representatives voted 215 to 205 to strike down ISP privacy regulations approved by the Federal Communications Commission only months ago. House’s passage of a resolution of disapproval followed a Senate vote to pass the same resolution days earlier. 

President Donald Trump is expected to sign the Republican-pushed bill. But Senator Ed Markey, a Massachusetts Democrat, said he will introduce new legislation to require the FCC to pass new ISP privacy rules.

What Killed Adobe Flash?

An employee, who claims to have worked on the development of Flash, writes: Apparently, the world settled on the "One True Cause" for why Flash "died". Take for example this blogpost by John Gruber about FedEx... it ends with this consideration on Steve Jobs' "Thoughts on Flash": "If it had been an angry rant, it would have been easily dismissed without needing to be factually refuted -- "That's just Jobs being a prick again." The fact that it wasn't angry, and because it was all true, made it impossible to refute." Impossible to refute. There's no doubt that this was the beginning of the end for Flash, right? Except that this is utterly wrong. I worked on Flash, and I worked on the thing that actually killed Flash. It is my strong belief, based on what I observed, that Steve Jobs' letter had little impact in the final decision -- it was really Adobe who decided to "kill" Flash. Yes, Flash was a bad rap for Adobe, and Steve's letter didn't help. But ultimately, what was probably...

A musical walk through the impact of Chuck Berry

If you are a fan of music, take a few minutes to dig through this multimedia piece by the New York Times. Year by year, you’ll make your way through the critical work in Chuck Berry’s catalog, focused on the beat and guitar licks he introduced to the world, each accompanied by covers of his songs, as well as songs that influenced his evolution and songs derived from his work.

Great job by Guilbert Gates and the Times multimedia team. The songs load instantly, stop on a dime, making it easy to quickly shift gears, control the pace. I love this.

MLB and NHL take advantage of custom icons in iOS 10...

Sarah Perez, TechCrunch:

The MLB.com At Bat and NHL iOS applications have been updated today to take advantage of one of the new, but still under-the-radar features available in the just-launched version of Apple’s mobile operating system, iOS 10.3: personalized home screen icons. That’s right — you now can replace either of these apps’ default icon with one featuring your favorite team’s logo instead.

These are terrific examples of custom icons at work. Makes me wonder if Apple implemented these in response to requests from MLB and the NHL.

Excuse me, gotta go change my icons.

A UBS analyst says that AAPL stock could reach as high as $200/share over the next 2-3 years, as the stock hit its 11th record high so far this year. It has already hit the equivalent of $1,000/share when you factor in the share split.

MarketWatch notes that the stock yesterday set two records: its highest ever value, at $143.80, and its highest intraday price of $142.80. Many analysts are setting high target prices for the stock, and one of them even predicts a possible $200 level, notes Business Insider – though he does add some crucial riders …

The next time you drive near a Dunkin' Donuts on the way to work, Waze won't just offer to reroute your there—it'll let you place an order, too. The navigation app recently announced a partnership with Dunkin' Donuts that lets users order items while they're en route.

The new feature is rolling out now. If you don't see an option to order ahead you may need to update Waze. You'll also need to install the Dunkin' Donuts app.

To start, the new Waze feature only works with Dunkin', but the company plans to partner with other businesses in the near future, according to the Associated Press. Pretty soon, you could be ordering ahead via Waze for groceries, prescriptions, parking spaces, and take-out.

Instead, Apple wants developers to highlight prices and discounts in the app’s description. Try to submit an app for review that contains the word “Free” in the name of the app and you’ll get this error message:

“Your app’s name, icons, screenshots, or previews to be displayed on the App Store include references to your app’s price, which is not considered a part of these metadata items.

Apple clears through almost 350 security...

Apple cleaned house via a slew of operating system updates on Monday, pinning down nearly 350 known vulnerabilities between its changes to iOS, macOS, watchOS and tvOS.

Starting with iOS 10.3, Apple’s latest version includes Find My AirPods, Apple’s new file system, CarPlay, and a few other small visual tweaks. With nearly every update Apple does, they also include a handful of security fixes that easily go unnoticed by the user. iOS 10.3 is no exception with over 85 different common vulnerabilities and exposures (CVEs) listed.

In one case, the iOS 10.3 update patched a security hole that allowed attackers to spam Safari with a ‘Cannot Open Page’ dialog. Lookout, a cybersecurity company, learned of the attack after one of their users complained of losing control over their browsing experience. The dialog was meant to trick users into eventually paying money to “unlock” their Safari browser.

Elon Musk Plans to Build a Human-AI Interface


Tech visionary Elon Musk, who currently helms both Tesla and SpaceX, has launched a startup, Neuralink, dedicated to developing technology that will connect human brains directly to a computer.
This venture is in its very early stages, Musk confirmed. Neuralink, which Musk is funding privately, is a medical research firm that aims to develop "neural lace" -- a technology that could allow the implanting of small electrodes into the brain.

iClever’s $65 BoostEngine Portable Car Jump Starter is described as a “powerful, compact power bank with the ability to jump start dead car batteries and charge phones, cameras and other devices.” The problem is that it wouldn’t jump start my vehicle.

The gadget has a 15000 mAh and 600A power bank that’s supposed to let you jump start your vehicles up to 20 times. However, I tried to jump start the (extremely) dead battery on my old, six-cylinder Ford Ranger and got no response at all. There wasn’t even a hint that ol’ pickup might spring to life.

Obviously, I can’t recommend the BoostEngine Portable Car Jump Starter as …. well … a car starter. However, its “quick charge” technology did juice up my iPhone and iPad Pro quickly. 

The folks behind the BoostEngine say it can “charge phones and other devices at up to 75% faster than other chargers.” I didn’t find it to be THAT fast, but it did the job quickly...

They require broadband carriers to first obtain opt-in approval from customers before using and sharing their sensitive personal information, such as web browsing history, geo-location data and what applications they've used.

How to use Night Shift in macOS Sierra

macOS Sierra 10.12.4, introduced this week, added Night Shift, a feature brought over from iOS. It helps you reduce the amount of blue light you're exposed to during the evening by shifting the display of a Mac to a more yellow tone.

Blue wavelengths—which are beneficial during daylight hours because they boost attention, reaction times, and mood—seem to be disruptive at night. The proliferation of electronics with screens, as well as energy-efficient lighting, is increasing our exposure to blue wavelengths, especially after sundown and may affect sleeping patterns.

Apple hasn't made it especially easy to figure out how to implement Night Shift in macOS, but here’s how you do it:

  • Open the System Preferences app.
  • Click Display.
  • Select Night Shift.

You can turn Night Shift on or off. Set it to come on from sunset to sunrise — or you can use the Customize options to implement it for the hours of your choosing.

Version 3.5 allows you to mark up photos with instructions or comments using built-in annotation tools. You can now send video messages and feedback in 1:1 chats between teachers and students and open audio or video files directly in other apps.

Planescape: Torment is still one of the all-time great RPGs. I should know—I just replayed it in January in preparation for the then-impending launch of spiritual successor Torment: Tides of Numenera.

If only I’d waited two more months though, eh? Today a countdown timer at planescape.com (cheekily titled “Plan Escape”) was supposed to tick down to zero and pull back the curtain on Planescape: Torment Enhanced Edition, coming to PC, Mac, and Linux later this year. Then uh...well, the trailer leaked early. Best laid plans.

Too Much Communication


The world is a smaller place because we have so many ways to connect and communicate, but it has created a generation gap, a gap of classes and perhaps even a culture gap. This may seem like a serious contradiction; after all shouldn't more means of communication bring us closer together?
The obvious answer is yes, but unfortunately this is not the case -- in part because so many technology start-ups have tried to create the next way to connect with friends, colleagues and acquaintances.

How to save emails from Mail to Notes as PDFs on iOS

I’m really good at managing my inbox (for personal email at least) and rarely leave messages there for keeping. Most emails go in a receipt folder or get deleted, I aggressively unsubscribe to mailing lists and mark spam as junk, and special messages are archived for keeping.

Occasionally I’ll have a message with important information that I don’t need right now and will want to easily reference in the near future. I’ve tried flagging but I don’t entirely understand how the feature is supposed to work between iOS and the Mac.

Usually I just leave the email in my inbox, but what I’d like to do is save the message somewhere with other important information like Apple’s Notes app. Luckily this is possible on iOS, but it’s a bit confusing to discover…

iOS 10.3 will probably make your iPhone feel faster

The Verge:

Apple released iOS 10.3 yesterday with a new modern file system, but like any software update there are many undocumented changes. One particular change has been revealed through Apple engineer Renaud Lienhart‏, who works directly on the iOS operating system. “iOS 10.3 feels ‘snappier’ because many animations were slightly tweaked & shortened, for the better,” says Lienhart on Twitter.

Here’s the tweet:
