TMO Daily Observations: 2014-06-19

The streaming music service Rhapsody is reinventing itself and has teamed up with T-Mobile to help make that happen.

Want to Try the iPhone 5S for Free? Ask T-Mobile

T-Mobile is offering prospective subscribers a way to try out its cell network for free, and it teamed up with Apple to use the iPhone 5S as the smartphone of choice for the deal. 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.

The Mac Observer Spin: This looks like kind of a neat phone, but even more it looks like another way to buy stuff that happens to also let you call people.

Adobe Unveils Ink and Slide Stylus and Ruler Combo...

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.

Samsung has most likely missed its own Galaxy S5 smartphone quarterly shipments by 25 percent, and local securities firms aren't happy. Samsung expected to ship 21 million units, but instead will come in around 15 million -- and that means the electronics maker sold even less because units shipped doesn't equal units sold.

Apple introduced a new 21.5-inch iMac on Wednesday the company is calling its entry level model. Pricing starts at just over US$1,000, includes Intel's Core i5 processor, and the same design as its larger screen siblings.

The Mac Observer Spin: Apple hasn't been a company known for targeting low-end buyers, but this new entry level iMac market sure makes it look like the company wants to steal away more of the desktop from the PC market.

Cowen Raises AAPL Target to $102 on iPhone 6...

Cowen & Company analyst Timothy Arcuri thinks Apple's smartphone sales will remain strong this year and the upcoming iPhone 6 will drive those numbers up enough to warrant bumping his target price for the company's stock from US$90 up to $102. He said Apple has been able to maintain strong sales despite the fact that it doesn't offer a smartphone with a larger screen, although that's expected to change this fall with the launch of the iPhone 6.

The Mac Observer Spin: Everyone is expecting bigger screens and bigger sales for the iPhone 6 this fall. Get ready for a lot of disappointment in the stock market if Apple sticks with the current iPhone 5S display.

Amazon is expected to introduce its own smartphone on Wednesday, and AT&T will be the exclusive carrier. Apple struck a similar deal with AT&T when the iPhone first launched, which gave the cell service provider a healthy boost in its competition with U.S. market leader Verizon.

The Mac Observer Spin: An Amazon-branded smartphone is yet another way to help lock customers into the giant online retailer just as it already does with the Kindle ebook reader lineup. The price will likely be relatively low, too, as an incentive to draw in more potential online shoppers.

Apple Reaches Settlement with States in Ebook Price...

The lawsuit from several U.S. states against Apple over ebook price fixing allegations is coming to an end through a settlement outside of the court room. The states were seeking upwards of US$800 million after Federal Judge Denise Cote ruled that the iPhone and iPad maker had been the ring leader in a conspiracy with publishers to artificially raise the price of books.

The Mac Observer Spin: Apple still says the ebook price fixing conspiracy didn't happen and that it was negotiating ebook deals independently with each of the big publishers. Settling with the states was most likely a tactic to avoid yet another trial and cut off the possibility of the states scoring a huge cash win. It also frees up Apple's legal resources to focus on overturning Judge Cote's ruling.

Apple Producing Enough Sapphire for iWatch, Two...

Apple's sapphire glass production has ramped up to the point where it is manufacturing enough to make surfaces for the rumored iWatch as well as two different sizes of iPhone. All of that sapphire glass is coming from GT Advanced Technologies, and the company is still installing more furnaces to meet Apple's needs.

The Mac Observer Spin: Assuming GTAT can produce enough synthetic sapphire glass for Apple, we could be seeing super-hard and more durable surfaces on iPhones and the rumored iWatch this fall. That also means Corning won't be selling nearly as much Gorilla Glass to Apple as it has been.

It's a reminder that there are plenty of ways for people to access our personal information that go beyond computer security breaches.

Apple and Samsung both dropped their appeals in the ITC investigation where several older model Samsung smartphones were banned from import into the United States. The ban will stay in place, and the two companies will continue to fight it out in court over their ongoing patent infringement accusations.

The Mac Observer Spin: With both Apple and Samsung agreeing to drop their injunction appeals in the ITC injunction we may be seeing an indication that the two companies are able to successfully complete negotiations, even if it is only on a small level. Don't expect to see their other patent infringement cases dropped any time soon, but this could be a spark of hope that they can come back to the table and resolve their infringement claims outside of the court room -- just don't hold your breath expecting that to happen any time soon.

Apple’s Command Key Origin Story

Via Reddit, we have a link to a brief history of that key next to the spacebar on Apple keyboards. It's unofficially called the Apple key, splat, the pretzel key, or the propeller, but the official name for it is the Command key. On the Apple II keyboard, the keys on either side of the spacebar were different; one was the "open Apple" and one was the "closed Apple." For some reason the open Apple key was the one that did more things, so to this day I still forget there's another key over there on the right. In fact, I called it the open Apple key for many years, and finally broke the habit about the time the Apple logo disappeared off that key entirely. Check out the story of how it came to be, and if you haven't heard it before, it's an interesting Steve Jobs tale.

Tony Fadell: I Would Have Loved to Show Steve Jobs...

Tony Fadell sold his company-Nest Inc.-to Google for US$3.2 billion, but in an in-depth profile in Fortune magazine, the father of the iPod revealed that he wished he could have shown the Nest Thermostat to his former boss, Steve Jobs. "I would have loved to have been able to show it to him, but the timing didnât work," he told the magazine. Mr. Fadell, shown in the image, said that Steve Jobs kept in touch with him when Nest was still in stealth mode, but by the time he was ready to show the device, Mr. Jobs had grown to ill. The piece offers an excellent look at Mr. Fadell, his career, how Nest was founded, his combative tenure at Apple, and why Google bought the firm. Fortune also reminded us that Mr. Fadell is one of the few Apple executives to see success after they left Apple.

Monstrous Posters by Maurice Sendak

Maurice Sendak's birthday would have celebrated his 86th birthday this week. Sadly, he rumpused his last in 2012, and therefore won't come across this tribute to him on his birthday. Via Brain Pickings we discover the wondrous book Posters by Maurice Sendak, a large format/coffeetable book ofâwell, of his posters. Some of them are the "yay reading!" type found in libraries and classrooms, which are the ones I remember most vividly, as they hung in the libraries and classrooms where I spent lots of time as a kid. In fact I convinced my mom to hang one in her classroom for me because I loved it so much. Head over to Brain Pickings and check out some images from this book. And if you're inspired to start a wild rumpus, well, that's on you.

We have a deal today on animation tool called CrazyTalk Animator 2 Standard for Mac. This is an animation product designed, in part, for people who aren't artists. It comes with a wide array of stock characters that can then be customized in any number of ways. It also has the ability to turn 2D photos into talking characters. One of the things I like about this deal is that it also includes six hours of training videos to help you learn how to use the software. You get the software plus the training videos for $49, but the sale ends in six days.

While MacTech isn't quite ready to tell us exactly what this year's special event is, this picture they sent along today might give us some idea, especially when couched amongst the conference's history.

Dropbox gets into Chat with Droptalk Purchase

Droptalk's Web-based messaging service was still in beta and available only as a Google Chrome add-on, but it does give Dropbox a presence in the chat market along with the company's coders.

The Mac Observer Spin: Dropbox clearly wants to be the go-to service for online storage and file syncing, and buying Droptalk could make the company a strong player in document collaboration, too.
