∞ Camera falls from airplane and lands in pig pen

[Video] So many questions. How did they get their phone back? Did they intentionally drop the phone from the airplane and just get lucky with the landing?

Regardless, this is some entertaining video, circa 2014. Video embedded in main Loop post.

Apple files for patents to make it easier to record...

Apple has filed for two patents designed to make it easier to record and author music on an iPhone or iPad. Patent number 20170092320) is for an “automatic music record and authoring tool.”

Audio recording capabilities have become more and more accessible to average users. Where musicians conventionally had to travel to recording studios to record their ideas, improvements in technology have brought cheaper and more sophisticated mobile recording devices to the masses, allowing musicians to record their ideas virtually anywhere and at a moment's notice. Some contemporary recording devices are hand-held (e.g., mobile phones, voice memo recorders, etc.) for portability and convenience. 

However, despite these improvements, Apple says there are several shortcomings with contemporary recording devices that stifle creativity. For instance, starting a recording session typically requires a user to navigate a number of menus and settings to place the device...

Apple will begin selling the iPhone in Argentina in...

Apple will begin selling the iPhone in Argentina in April for the first time in years, reports Bloomberg, quoting an unnamed “person familiar with the matter.”

The smartphone has been unavailable from carriers Telefonica SA, America Movil SAB and Telecom Argentina SA because of rules put in place in 2009 by President Mauricio Macri’s predecessor, Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, who pressured device makers to assemble their products in Argentina. Apple never opened a factory there (though Samsung did).

All regulatory hurdles to import the iPhone have been removed, though the carriers will have to pay import taxes that will make the devices at least 25% more expensive than locally assembled phones, according to Bloomberg. However, despite those obstacles, “iPhones are already a common sight on the streets of Buenos Aires...

MBLM names Apple the ‘most intimate brand’ for 2017

Apple has been named “the most intimate brand,” according to the 2017 Brand Intimacy Survey by MBLM, a consulting, branding, experience and technology company. The rest of the top 10 were Disney, Amazon, Harley Davidson, Netflix, Nintendo, Samsung, Whole Foods, BMW and Toyota.

The rankings were based on the following criteria:

  • Fulfilment: exceeds expectations, delivering superior service, quality, and efficacy;
  • Identity: reflects an aspirational image or admired values and beliefs that resonate deeply;
  • Enhancement: becoming better through use of the brand—smarter, more capable, and more connected;
  • Ritual: ingraining a brand into daily actions—more than habitual behavior. The brand becomes a vitally important part of daily existence;
  • Nostalgia: focuses on memories of the past and the warm, poignant feelings associated with them. These are often brands a customer has...

How to embed Keynote presentations in blogs and...

The latest updates to Apple’s iWork suite included a lot of new features; Keynote’s release notes included a line that was particularly eye-catching. Keynote 7.1 for Mac and Keynote 3.1 for iOS adds the ability to ‘Post interactive presentations on Medium, WordPress and other websites.’

This means you can put a Keynote document on a webpage in just the same way as you can embed a YouTube video. It certainly feels like an advanced feature targeted at iPad Pro as computer users. Unfortunately, the process to actually do this is not so straightforward, with some tricky edge cases about how it works. Read on to find out how to embed Keynote documents on a website or blog …

Congress to US citizens: Want online privacy? Pay up!

Tuesday’s congressional vote to repeal U.S. restrictions on broadband providers doesn’t mean that online privacy is dead. Consumers will just have to pay for it.

The coming repeal, which President Trump is expected to sign into law, paves a clearer path for broadband providers to sell customers’ internet browsing history and other online data, without their consent.

Privacy advocates are worried. Imagine corporate giants snooping on your internet activities, and then bombarding your PC, phone and TV with targeted ads.

However, the privacy rule rollback might have an opposite effect too. Expect broadband providers and other internet services to emerge offering online privacy protections -- but at a price.

The Apple App Store is projected to remain the leading app store for the next five years and is slated to generate more than $60 billion in gross consumer spending in 2021, according to a new report by App Annie.

However, when factoring in Google Play and third-party Android stores combined, consumer spend should overtake iOS for the first time ever in 2017, thanks to their “dominant smart device market share and strong installed base growth,” adds the analytics services and market intelligence firm. Overall, the app economy’s future is bright, and we expect worldwide gross consumer spend to surpass $139 billion in 2021.

When Apple announced the new low-cost 9.7-inch iPad, both looks and spec seemed to suggest that it was essentially an original iPad Air with minor updates, and that’s exactly what iFixit found beneath the hood when it did its usual teardown.

So remember how we said this was similar to the first Air? We were serious—take a look inside the Air 1 and iPad 5 respectively. Not much has changed.

The company did find a few changes – but also cast some doubt on Apple’s claim that this model offers a brighter display …

Apple Music beats Spotify, Pandora in monthly unique...

Spotify may be the leader when it comes to the largest number of paid subscribers (50 million) for a streaming music service, but it’s Apple Music (which has over 20-million subscribers) that comes out on top when their respective audiences translate into monthly unique users, specifically on mobile, according to a report published this week from mobile analytics firm Verto — as noted by TechCrunch.

Apple’s streaming music service attracted 40.7 million monthly unique users to its service in the U.S. in February, according to the report. Pandora came in at number two with 32.6 million users, and Spotify took third place with 30.4 million unique users for the month. Others ranking highly among music apps include iHeartRadio, SoundCloud and Amazon Music. iHeartRadio took the fourth slot, while SoundCloud took the...

tvOS 10.2 update may conflict with some third-party...

As nifty as tvOS 10.2 is (the new fast scrolling feature, for example, is much appreciated), it might be causing problems with some third-party streaming applications.

A new report has stated that tvOS 10.2 including functionality that makes the Apple TV require device verification from an AirPlay streaming device. In such a case, only Apple hardware can provide such verification.

The new verification requirement can cause certain third-party streaming applications not to work. Per Rogue Amoeba’s Paul Kafasis, the tvOS 10.2 update prevents the company’s AirFoil app for Mac and Windows from working with the Apple TV. Rogue Amoeba recommends not updating to tvOS 2 until the company has a fix for AirFoil.

There doesn’t, at present, seem to be a confirmed resolution for the issue, although software developer Squirrels has AirParrot, which allows users to stream media from one device to another. About two weeks ago, Squirrels released an AirParrot update that...

The Gamevice controller works great with a 12.9-inch...

Call this a mini-review: earlier this month I critiqued the second generation of the Gamevice controller, which has been upgraded with new buttons and thumb sticks,  on my iPhone 7 Plus. I found it to be great for certain games, but wondered if the 12.9-inch iPad Pro version would just too unwieldy to use.

I’m happy to say that it’s not — IF you use it on a desktop, table, laptop pad or simply in your lap. Doing so allows the super-sized iPad to comfortably function as a really big mobile gaming console. 

However, holding it as you would an iPhone is going to tire your arms out quickly. Or else they’ll be really jacked after several weeks of use.

With that caveat, I highly recommend the Gamevice for any iOS device user. See my original...

The Deck, Adieu

When I started writing Daring Fireball in 2002, there really weren’t any established ways for a small indie website to generate money. I mean like literally nothing. I knew, though, that it was what I wanted to do with my life. I wanted to write. But I didn’t want to write books. I didn’t want to write for a newspaper or magazine or someone else’s website. I wanted to write Daring Fireball.

I plugged away, writing as much as I could, doing it as a hobby. And I just started trying ways to generate revenue, with one guiding rule: don’t do anything I’m not proud of. In 2003 I first announced publicly my intention to one day write Daring Fireball full-time, and began a brief experiment with Google AdSense. (Daring Fireball was literally one of the first sites on the web showing ads from Google). It didn’t work well financially, or look good. In June 2004 I...

App Store Sales For Android To Overtake Apple's...

An anonymous reader shares a report: For years, Apple's App Store, the place where people download apps for games and social networking services on their iPhones, has generated far more revenue worldwide than its Android competitors. This year, things are changing: The App Store will fall second to the amount of revenue generated by Android app distributors, predicts analytics firm App Annie. In 2017, the App Store will generate $40 billion in revenue, while Android app stores run by Google and other parties will generate $41 billion, App Annie said. That gap is expected to widen in 2021, with Android app stores generating $78 billion in revenue and Apple's App Store at $60 billion in revenue, according to App Annie's report released on Wednesday. The surge in revenue for Android comes from a growing number of consumers in China who are buying Android phones and are willing to pay for apps. In 2021, App Annie expects there to be eight Android smartphone users to every single iPhone...

Google Calendar finally comes to the iPad

Google’s Calendar app is making a long-awaited move to a new device: Apple’s iPad. You read that right: Until Wednesday, the tech titan hadn’t optimized its marquee calendar application to run on Apple’s tablets.

The app provides users with a view of the calendars that they have and that are shared with them through Google’s service. In addition, they get a handful of features Apple’s native calendar app doesn’t have, like the ability to more easily find time and space for a meeting with other people inside their organizations.

Making iPad users wait for a native Calendar app is hardly a surprise coming from Google, considering that it’s the company behind Android, and frequently ships new features first to apps for devices running its mobile operating system.

Readdle has hired former Apple Mail engineering manager Terry Blanchard in a position that will focus on creating the “future of email” for Readdle’s popular email client “Spark,” working with an entirely new team of his choosing in Silicon Valley.

Opinion: iPhone 8’s top feature needs to be design

Apple surely has lots of whiz-bang new features planned for the new flagship iPhone this fall, but the number one feature on my wish list this year is a radical new design. Given the choice between a new iPhone with the same design plus new features like wireless charging and facial recognition or a new iPhone with a new design and no new features, I’d absolutely choose the new design.

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. 

The big change in iRig Recorder 3...

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 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.

UBS says AAPL could reach $200/share as it hits 11th...

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.
