Apple gives 16GB iPod touch a camera, lowers prices...

The fifth-gen iPod touch gets a mild refresh a few months before the release of iOS 8.

Andrew Cunningham

Apple quietly refreshed its iPod touch lineup this morning, adding a camera to the previously camera-free 16GB model and lowering prices across the lineup. The 16GB model is now $199 instead of $229; the 32GB model is $249 instead of $299; and the 64GB model is $299 instead of $399.

This iPod touch hardware was originally released back in late 2012, a little over a year and a half ago. Whether this minor refresh precludes the possibility of a more extensive refresh later in the year isn't clear. iPods have typically been refreshed in September, but Apple has diminished the attention it lavishes on the lineup as it has...

5.5-inch iPhone could get 128GB option, sources claim

The upcoming 5.5-inch iPhone will have a 128GB option, but not the 4.7-inch model, according to supply chain sources for Chinese site Feng.com. Current iPhone models top out at 64GB, and it's expected that the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 will follow suit. Apple is believed to be limiting 128GB to the 5.5-inch iPhone -- the naming of which is still unclear -- in order to help distinguish it from its cheaper counterpart....

5.5-inch iPhone 6 May Offer 128GB Option

Apple's rumored 5.5-inch iPhone 6 may sport more storage to go along with its bigger display. The model will reportedly come with a 128GB storage option, up from the 64GB cap on current and previous iPhones, and will be a feature that sets it apart from the rumored 4.7-inch iPhone 6.

The Mac Observer Spin: Assuming Apple does finally offer a 128GB storage option on the iPhone, that'll rock. Limiting it to the 5.5-inch model, however, will suck. Not everyone has giant hands.

Analyst: Apple to sell 80M iPhone 6 Units in 2014

Topology Research Institute thinks demand is so high for the unannounced iPhone 6 that Apple will sell 80 million units by the end of the year. Assuming the new model, or models, launch in September, that equates to about 20 million iPhone 6 units sold every month for the last four months of the year.

The Mac Observer Spin: There's clearly a lot of interest in Apple's next iPhone model. Assuming the company can produce inventory fast enough, it may be able to hit TRI's numbers.

Apple said to be working on ‘mainstream’ Smart Home...

With iPhones in pockets, Macs on desks, iPads in bags, and iWatches soon coming to the wrist, Apple is said to be eyeing another category for continued growth: Smart Home hardware. The Cupertino-company is said to have assembled a team to work on various hardware products for the home that deeply integrate with the existing array of Apple devices on the market…

The development of these home products could be paused at anytime, but Apple is said to be beyond the exploratory phase of development.

Sources have not yet specified what category of home devices Apple is developing, but the people did note that Apple believes the home to be an incredibly important and lucrative potential market and that the devices will see “mainstream” usage.

The sources say that Apple is unlikely to move forward with devices to...

Apple Adds Rear Camera to 16GB iPod touch, Lowers...

Apple quietly updated the 16GBV iPod touch on Thursday, adding a 5 megapixel camera to the iOS-based media player. The company also lowered the model's price to US$199 from $229, and cut the prices for the 32GB and 64GB versions, too.

The Mac Observer Spin: Apple introduced the 16GB iPod touch last year in May, so if a rear-facing camera and price cuts are the only updates this year, it's a pretty good indicator the company is focusing more on the iPhone and iPad. That said, the lower prices are a welcome change.

Supreme Court Says Cell Phone Searches Require...

In a decision that backs up the idea that cell phones and smartphones deserve the same privacy protections from the government as other parts of our lives, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled police must obtain search warrants before looking through the contents of our iPhones. Previously, law enforcement agencies could look through text messages, email messages, photos and more on smartphones to collect evidence without using search warrants.

The U.S. Supreme Court handed Aereo a ruling on Wednesday saying the online video streaming company has been violating copyright law by transmitting broadcast TV content over the Internet. Fox, NBC, ABC, and other broadcasters accused Aereo of essentially stealing their programming and reselling it through a paid online service.

The Mac Observer Spin: Regardless of whether Aereo should've been allowed to continue or be shut down, the Supreme Court ruling takes away one of the options available to viewers looking for ways to break free from cable and satellite TV channel packages.

Report Claims iPhone 6 Launching Sept 19

Apple is reportedly planning on launching the still unannounced iPhone 6 on September 19, according to sources speaking with the Chinese media. The company's track record makes a September release plausible, but expecting unnamed sources who are probably in the parts supply chain to know Apple's product launch plans seems unlikely.

The Mac Observer Spin: Apple hasn't made any announcements about new iPhone models, so for all we know the next model includes holographic displays and pink buttons. That said, the company's track record points to a September launch, and the 19th sounds like as good a date as any.

Boinx Software Wants to Build PartySnapper With Your...

One of the Boinx employees built a prototype of an app to display (via projector) the photos guests were taking at his wedding, and at the end all the photos were also stored on his device, so he had all those pictures immediately instead of waiting for email and Dropbox and Facebook and whatever other way people share photos. Now Boinx wants to turn this into a real app, but coding isn't cheap so there's now an Indiegogo campaign to help make that happen. I say help because each dollar raised in the campaign gets matched by two Boinx dollars. This is really a way to measure interest in the app before investing significant resources into it. As with all crowd funding campaigns, there are perks and these range from one "party ticket" for US $5 all the way up to the $5,000 level which gets you food, drinks, and a room in Munich to come party with the Boinx crew at Oktoberfest (travel costs excluded). If you feel particularly generous, there are million dollar (Apple CEO level) and...

Apple TV gets ABC News, PBS Kids, More

Apple pushed out more channels to Apple TV, giving users access to ABC News, PBS Kids, Willow TV, and AOL On on Tuesday. Like other channel updates, Apple quietly pushed the new content out to users without any need to run updaters or reboot.

The Mac Observer Spin: Seeing more channels appear on Apple TV is great, but forcing viewers to still pay for a cable TV package really sucks. TV viewers are slowing moving towards wanting to pay for just what they want to see instead of hundreds of channels they aren't interested in.

Samsung Legal Team gets $2M Fine for Leaking Apple...

The legal firm of Quinn Emanuel was slapped with a US$2 million fine for leaking confidential licensing agreements between Apple and Nokia to Samsung. The documents were part of the ongoing mobile device patent infringement fight between Apple and Samsung, and were intended only for expert witnesses and not the Korean electronics maker's eyes.

The Mac Observer Spin: Coughing up $2 million is more like digging for pocket change from Samsung's perspective. The electronics maker has a track record for staying ahead of the legal system while it makes products other companies say infringe on their products. That's not going to change now, and Quinn Emanuel won't have to take a financial hit because Samsung will no doubt write the checks for the full amount.

Apple's designer-in-chief Jony Ive and U2 frontman Bono took part in an interview this weekend at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity. The two were speaking about Project (RED), the AIDS charity headed by Bono, as part of Bono being awarded the LionHeart Award for his (RED) work. Apple has been a longtime (RED) partner, and Sir Jony has additionally spent his own time designing one-off products for (RED) fundraising auctions. Cannes Lion released a highlight reel (via MacRumors) from the day seven that includes part of the Bono and Jony Ive interview. In the highlight, Bono describes the late Steve Jobs as "a kind of co-creator" for (RED) because he was advising Bono early in the process. Note his effort at a Steve Jobs impression, which I found entertaining. He also described a fight he had with Mr. Jobs about (RED) branding, and how resistant the then-Apple CEO was about using the parenthesis in (RED) branding and the semi-compromise they came to.

Each kit includes 200 bricks you can use to build a virtual town, resort, raceway or fort, depending on which pack you buy. You start by crafting building facades, then snap photos with the iPad camera. Each facade you capture becomes a 3D building in your virtual world where you work to keep your virtual minifigs happy. Kits are priced at US$34.99 each and will be available starting in August. The accompanying iPad app will be a free download from Apple's iTunes-based App Store.

Foxconn Hunting for 100K People to Build iPhone 6

The Mac Observer Spin: If Foxconn and Pegatron really are hiring as many new employees as it sounds like, Apple has some pretty big iPhone orders in the works. Bringing on over 100,000 new workers also helps back up the idea that the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch models really are happening.

It links your iPad and Mac via Bluetooth, so there aren't any wires to get in the way. Air Stylus looks like a cool alternative to using an actual graphics tablet, and is an awesome example of just how versatile the iPad really is. Air Stylus is priced at US$19.99 and is available at Apple's iTunes-based App Store.

Apple’s iWatch to Launch with Multiple Models,...

Apple's rumored smartwatch will launch in October, and will be available in multiple sizes and models. That's according to insider sources claiming to be privy to the iPhone and iPad maker's plans.

The Mac Observer Spin: An October iWatch launch is looking more believable every day, and at this point it seems all but confirmed. What we don't know is exactly what form the device will take, how much it will cost, and what sizes it will be available in.

Judge Koh Questions Fairness of Apple, Google Anti-...

Federal Court Judge Lucy Koh has reservations about approving the US$324.5 million settlement Apple, Google, Adobe and Intel have agreed to in a lawsuit accusing the companies of forming a pact to not hire away employees from each other. During a hearing on Thursday she said she wasn't sure the deal would be fair to the plaintiffs in the case, but didn't say she planned to deny the settlement.

The Mac Observer Spin: Assuming Judge Koh approves the settlement, the employees who said the anti-poaching pack artificially capped their pay will get their cut sooner than they would by going to trial. Even though at least one plaintiff isn't happy with the settlement amount, it's likely Judge Koh will ultimately approve the deal and bring an end to the case.

T-Mobile gives Subscribers Free Music Streaming for...

T-Mobile has made another move to set itself apart from Verizon and AT&T by announcing subscribers can stream music from several online services without worrying about hitting their wireless data cap. The company said T-Mobile Simple Choice subscribers can stream music from iTunes Radio, Pandora, Rhapsody, iHeartRadio, Slacker, and Spotify over LTE without incurring any data charges.

The Mac Observer Spin: T-Mobile is getting pretty agressive with its push to draw customers away from the big cell service providers. It's your move, Verizon and AT&T.

Take Control Of Podcasting on the Mac, featuring...

You may have heard of Take Control Books, a great source of information about how to bend various Apple-centric topics to your will, such as Take Control of Pages or Apple Mail. One of their most recent releases is the updated Take Control of Podcasting on the Mac. This new edition includes profiles of some notable podcasters including Chuck Joiner, Louis Trapani, Kirk McElhearn, and yours truly! I talked to author Andy Affleck about my setup for podcasting and how excited I am about podcasting. I endorse all Take Control titles-they make some complex topics really approachable, and they're good references. It's a US$10.00 book, but if you buy three or more books you get 30% off, so check out some of the other titles and see if you can't build a nice little bundle of information.

The streaming music service Rhapsody is reinventing itself and has teamed up with T-Mobile to help make that happen. Kelly Guimont and Bryan Chaffin join Jeff Gamet to examine whether or not it matters with so many competing services already on the market.

The T-Mobile Test Drive program gives you an iPhone 5S for a week, along with unlimited nation-wide service, plus it gives people the opportunity to see Apple's popular smartphone in action.

The Mac Observer Spin: This is a good move for T-Mobile and a great way for Apple to give prospective iPhone buyers a way to try before they buy. Yet again, T-Mobile is trying something it's bigger competitors aren't doing.

Apple Limits New iMac to Casual Use Without Upgrade...

Apple's new US$1,099 entry level iMac is clearly aimed at more casual users -- so much so that it isn't upgradable. The 8GB RAM it ships with is all this iMac will ever hold, and replacing the hard drive involves steps most Mac owners wouldn't want to try.

The Mac Observer Spin: A look inside the new iMac shows this isn't a step up from your current Mac. It's targeting a psychological price point to help draw in new users, not serve long-time Mac owners. It's the fresh blood Mac.

Name Your Own Price Summer Blockbuster Mac Bundle...

We have another name your own price bundle from our friends at Stack Social, the Summer Blockbuster Mac Bundle. This is ten apps, including Path Finder and Fantastical, an app that won the TMO Editors' Choice Award. The other apps are Flux 4, Gemini, Logoist, Tunes Cleaner, MacX iPhone DVD Ripper, DiscLabel, SyncMate Expert 5, and Tangerine. Here's how it works: you can pay any price you want and get three of the apps (Tangerine, DiscLabel, and Syncmate Expert 5). If you pay more than the average, which is currently US$10.89, you'll get all 10 apps. But there's more: 10 percent of the profits go to a charity of your choice, and if you pay enough to make the Top 10, you'll be entered into a drawing for a MacBook Air. It's hard to lose with that.

Kitchen Overlord’s Carbs Against Humanity

This is a twofold Cool Stuff Found. First, there's the Kitchen Overlord's Illustrated Geek Cookbook Kickstarter campaign, which is a wonderful thing you should totally check out. Then there's the "stretch goals" for the campaign; a custom Cards Against Humanity deck, dubbed Carbs Against Humanity. If you ever wanted a nifty expansion pack for your CaH deck, now is your chance to expand it deliciously. (If you have no idea what Cards Against Humanity is, NSFW is putting it mildly. You have been warned.) Right now the Kickstarter is sitting at just over US$8,400 and at $9,000 every backer who buys the print book will also get a caricature of Star Trek's Sulu, an action shot of him skewering Tribbles (shown at left). I love the illustrations, and I love the recipes, and the video tells you all you need to know about the actual cooking of things from the cookbook. So check it out, it's nice to have a source for nerdy noms besides the Star Wars Cookbooks, right?

Amazon Debuts Amazon Fire Phone

Amazon has released the Amazon Fire Phone, which debuted at a live event in Seattle on Wednesday. As rumored, it sports four front-facing cameras to track the position of the user's head and uses that data to create "Dynamic Perspective," which means 3D views of some things and a tilt to scroll feature.

Adobe's Mighty and Napoleon iPad stylus and ruler have finally moved from the drawing board to shipping products, although now they have new names: Ink and Slide. The Ink stylus is pressure sensitive, and the two devices work together with Adobe's Creative Cloud for accessing, storing and sharing content.

The Mac Observer Spin: Adobe is serious about being a strong player in the mobile market, and its Ink and Slide combo have the potential to turn our iPad styluses into more than replacements for our finger tips. The new stylus and ruler are also a clear sign that Adobe wants to make Creative Cloud an indispensable part of our creative world.
