New Apple print ad shows actual iPhone 6 and iPhone...

As part of its iPhone 6 and 6 Plus ad blitz, Apple recently purchased prominent ad space in major print publications emblazoned with "actual size" images of the new hardware, giving readers a taste of what to expect from the enlarged devices.

Apple debuts new iPhone 6 print ads featuring actual...


via The Mac Observer

Apple is continuing the new round of advertising it kicked off with last night’s new iPhone 6 TV spots, this time making the jump to print media. The new ad was first detailed by The Mac Observer and features full-size images of both the iPhone 6 and it’s 5.5-inch “Plus” counterpart.

Though the two new handsets sold over 10 million units in the first weekend of availability, there are certainly still customers out there...

Apple Features ‘Actual Size’ iPhone 6/Plus in...

On the back cover of the latest issue of Rolling Stone magazine* is an ad for the new iPhone models. It's labeled "Actual Sizes," showing off how big the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus actually are. I took a photo of the ad with my iPhone 5s next to it, also shown actual size (compared to the other two). I'm not sure where else the ad will be appearing, but with nearly 1.5 million subscribers, that's a lot of people who could be getting a good look at the new devices for the first time. Clever move to make them actual size, the first thing I did was set my phone on each one for comparison. Well played, Apple.

* Magazines are like blogs from the olden days, printed on paper and mailed to people.

iPhone 6 Review: Bigger, Better, and BIGGER

Apple went big with its iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus introduction - with the launch event and screen size. Both models are bigger than any iPhone Apple has made before, and very noticeably so. That size, however, does come with some benefits like faster processors, better cameras, and even support NFC-based mobile payment systems. Compared to the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c, the new models really are a lot bigger, and for some people, the extra features may not be worth the size increase. Read on to see if the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are worth the price for you.

Apple again tops in PC customer satisfaction, but...

For the 11th year in a row, Apple has topped the satisfaction ratings in the most recent American Customer Satisfaction Index rating buyer happiness with PC purchases, including tablets. Noting a slight uptick in overall satisfaction with desktop computers, ACSI Chairman Claes Fornell could not say if desktop PCs are poised for a comeback or if consumers who disliked being bound to a desk have simply moved on to other devices. Apple has won the top slot every year since 2004....

One of Apple's routinely-unpublicized acquisitions this year was magazine-app creator Prss.

Pants on Fire, Schmidt Tells Climate Change Denier...


Google on Monday publicly denounced the conservative American Legislative Exchange Council for lying about climate change. "We funded them as part of a political campaign for something unrelated," Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt told a caller to NPR's Diane Rehm Show. "I think the consensus within the company is that was sort of a mistake. We're trying to not do that in the future." Google has "a very strong view that we should make decisions in politics based on facts -- what a shock," Schmidt explained.

iPhone 6 camera compared to all previous iPhones (...

The makers of camera app Camera+ have put together a great comparison of the new iPhone 6 camera vs almost all previous generation iPhones including the first iPhone, the iPhone 3G, 3GS, 4, 4S, 5, and 5S.

Skin tones look brighter and more true to life with the iPhone 6 in this portrait series. Although the iPhone 6 photo has a higher level of detail, I’m finding it slightly pixelated and blotchy-looking. Apple altered their local tone-mapping algorithm for better exposure and contrast using the new A8 processor, but it looks like it might be causing some issues with the skin tones in these shots. Additionally, their new noise reduction algorithm seems a bit heavy handed causing pixelation.

The full comparison on the company’s site lets you view full-sized shots for a number of different shooting...

Apple's TouchID Fingerprint Scanner: Still...

electronic convict writes: A year ago, security researcher Marc Rogers demonstrated how to spoof the TouchID sensor in the iPhone 5S using some Elmer's glue and glycerol — oh, and a high resolution camera and a laser printer. Has TouchID security improved at all on the iPhone 6? Not really, Rogers reports in his latest post, in which he again hacks the iPhone 6's TouchID sensors using the same method as before. "Fake fingerprints created using my previous technique were able to readily fool both devices [the 6 and the 5S]," he reports. Rogers, however, says there's no reason to panic, as the attack requires substantial skill, patience and a good clear fingerprint. As he writes: "We use locks on our doors to keep criminals out not because they are perfect, but because they are both convenient and effective enough to meet most traditional threats."

Brave new phone call

Steven Levy:

How can an app displace 135 years of telephony?

The first step is by being an app and not a facsimile of a desk phone. Unlike the “dialer” on your mobile, or even the call button on your contact list, Talko presents the opportunity to begin a conversation by simply touching on the image of the person or team you want to talk to, whether they are ready to join right now or sometime in the future.

Going to be very interesting to see if this takes off in any appreciable way.

“Re-staging” Raiders of the Lost Ark

Steven Soderbergh:

I’ve removed all sound and color from the film, apart from a score designed to aid you in your quest to just study the visual staging aspect.

I am usually vehemently against “messing with” someone else’s movie but Soderbergh’s experiment really enhances (but doesn’t replace) the classic “Raiders of the Lost Ark”.

Man Bends iPhone 6 Plus with Bare Hands on Video

With reports (Google Translation) popping up claiming Apple's new 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus can get bent just by being in your pocket, YouTube channel UnboxTherapy did a bend test on the device. There's no sense beating around the bush about it, either, because Lewis bent it. With his hands. His bare hands. It required a lot of effort, but he did it. he was focusing his efforts on the middle, but it turned out that it bent in the area near the buttons. That makes sense in hindsight, because the spot with the holes is going to be the weakest point in the case. It also matches the bends that are showing up from people complaining about bends from their pockets. Note that the device continued to work even after it was bent, but at the very least, this is an argument against keeping the beast in your pocket, even it it fits. Also, Apple could have a problem on its hands.

The earliest reports came from MacRumors, where forum posters reported bending in the iPhone 6 Plus after a weekend of use. Later, Geek.com writer Russell Holly posted photos of the smaller iPhone 6 exhibiting some of the same behavior. When placed on its (normally flat) front face,...

Prss, launching today at The Next Web Conference USA, is a Web app that allows users to create beautiful magazines via a drag-and-drop interface and then publish them to Newsstand.

Chipworks digs up more information on Apple’s new A8...

The Apple A8 die shot as mapped out by Chipworks.

Chipworks

Now that the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have been released, the usual suspects have started to take them apart to get more information about the things Apple doesn't talk about. Last week, iFixit took the phones apart and identified many of the internal components and the battery capacities. Today, Chipworks picked up where it left off on Friday, taking up-close photos of the Apple A8 chip and trying to deduce what exactly is going on in there.

As was previously rumored, Chipworks has confirmed that the A8 is built on Taiwan Semiconductor's (TSMC) 20nm process rather than the 28nm Samsung process used for the A7. This is the first...

Talko looks like a solution to the problem that iOS...

Oh dear. On Tuesday, software giant Ray Ozzie launched Talko, an app that promises to “save the telephone call”—and basically copies Apple’s iOS 8 Messages feature in the process.

On the surface, Talko is a wonderful app. Think of it as Slack or HipChat or an AOL chat room, with group texting, the ability to record voice, share location, and even photos. Talko’s team wrapped it all up within Apple’s pristine iOS 8 design motif, sprinkled a bit of fairy dust on it, and unveiled it with broad smiles to a gullible tech press.

Because that’s what you do when you have a Really Big Deal—especially a company backed by such names as Marc Andreessen or Greylock Capital. You put legendary software giant Ray Ozzie out in front of The New York TimesUSA Today, The Verge, the Associated Press, and even Steven Levy’s new tech site at Medium—the list goes on and on. And although everyone who ever used it despised Ozzie’s first product, Lotus Notes, Ozzie still...

Why I'm returning my iPhone 6 (well, maybe)

Like many (many, many) people, I preordered a new iPhone 6 as soon as I possibly could. I didn’t choose the iPhone 6 Plus, the clown-shoe version of this device, but went for the standard-sized model. I’ve often desired to have a slightly larger screen, so I welcomed the idea of a 4.7-inch iPhone. I thought it would allow me to see more content, and use larger fonts, which would help my aging eyes. After using it for a few days, however, I’m not sure that I really want to keep it. I may return my iPhone 6 and continue using the iPhone 5s.

iPhone 6 pocket problems: Some buyers report that...

The iPhone 6 Plus is a sizable phone, so large that it doesn’t fit in smaller pockets. But some buyers are finding a problem other than the fit: When they
sit down for extended periods of time with the 6 Plus in their front pocket, the 5.5-inch phone bends ever so slightly.

The reports first surfaced on the MacRumors forums, where a handful of users have posted
photos of their phones’ bent aluminum bodies. The original poster pocketed his 6 Plus for about 18 hours one day, mostly sitting, and provided photo
evidence of his space gray phone’s resulting curvature.

A MacRumors forum member reported that sitting for about 18 hours resulted in a bent iPhone 6 Plus.

Desktop PC customer satisfaction surpasses tablets...

ACSI:

Customer satisfaction with computing devices continues to slide but desktop computers do better than laptops and tablets, according to a new report from the American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI). The annual measure of personal computers falls 1.3 percent to an ACSI score of 78 (on a 0-100 point scale). Laptops deteriorate the most (-4% to 76), while tablets dip slightly (-1% to 80), but desktops gain 3 percent to take the lead at 81.

Even though Apple “dropped 3% to 84″ it continues to “maintain a sizable lead over its major competitors”. It would be interesting to understand the reasons for the overall increased in desktop PC satisfaction. Perhaps people who have switched to laptops and tablets have discovered they are not as powerful as they need or want.

Yes, there’s new features here and there that are firsts for iOS like the ability to swipe to type using Swype and SwiftKey, but these are still just keyboards for typing letters. A new keyboard from Riffsy called GIF Keyboard, on the other hand, isn’t really a keyboard—it’s a great way to quickly and easily send GIFs to friends using your favorite apps.

After you install it and activate it from deep within the Settings app (which is a pain), you’ll find that it’s set up somewhat similar to the Emoji keyboard. Along the bottom you’ll find various GIF categories, within each there’s a set of GIFs with one to fit any possible situation you could dream of. Each image is under a hashtag...

New rubber gaskets around buttons help iPhone 6/Plus...

In iFixit’s ritual dismantling of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus last week, the repair company noted that Apple had started including rubber gaskets around the power and volume buttons likely in an effort to make the iPhone more water and dust resistant.

Similar gaskets surround the volume buttons. Altogether, this seems to represent a move toward increased water/dust resistance, and therefore improved durability.

iFixit

How did Apple do? Well iPhone warranty provider Squaretrade was able to dunk both the 6 and 6 Plus for 10 seconds without any real damage. While this is indeed nice to have, especially for those of us who like to take our iPhones with us to the pool, it is by no means a guarantee like Samsung and Sony have on some of their phones.

Re/code’s John Paczkowski shared today that such a rebrand could be slated for February:

Now that we’ve established that Apple is not “shutting down” Beats Music, the streaming service that Tim Cook in May lauded as the “first music subscription service that really got it right,” and we’re all agreed that it makes far more sense for the company to dump the Beats Music brand and integrate the service into an offering of its own, we can move on to another more interesting question...

The bill, titled the Law Enforcement Access to Data Stored Abroad Act seeks to authorize the use of extraterritorial search warrants, but vacate said warrants if it requires parties involved to break the laws of a country to do so....

News: FXNOW channel comes to Apple TV

Apple has added the FXNOW channel to Apple TV. It was reported in July that FXNOW would be arriving on Apple’s set-top box in the next 12 months — that time has already come. FXNOW is the on-demand service for FX, FXX, and FXM, and as such, the channel features a number of FX shows, and a surprising amount of popular movies, as well. Authentication of a cable subscription is required to access the content....

iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus: preliminary results

AnandTech:

Some basic performance data and battery life, which include browser benchmarks, game-type benchmarks, and our standard web browsing battery life test. There’s definitely a lot more to talk about for this phone, but this should give an idea of what to expect in the full review.

AnandTech’s prelim results are interesting. I look forward to their full detailed review.

Following a report in July that Apple was planning on adding a new FX Now channel to Apple TV within 12 months, today the channel has officially arrived for users in the US. Like the FX Now app that was already available on iOS devices via an app for iPhone and iPad, the channel offers on-demand video streaming with content from the FX, FXX, and FXM networks. 

Previous reports indicated that FXNOW also planned to make its new Simpsons World service, which offers on-demand content from The Simpsons TV show, through the Apple TV channel when it launches this fall. For now, the channel offers a selection of full episodes, clips and movies from FX.

Hacker Gives Google a Hand With Chrome-Android...


An unplanned convergence of Android apps and the Chrome OS may be setting the stage for a wide-open cross-platform architecture that combines Android and Chrome. Freelance programmer Vlad Filippov, aka "Vladikoff," discovered a way around Google's limitations on its ARC, or App Runtime for Chrome, which is essentially a Chrome extension application programming interface. Filippov hacked his way into the Google process to allow it to run on the Chrome OS and other platforms that run the Chrome Web browser. He dubbed that modification "ARChon."

People will be able to use the Apple Watch as a remote for their Apple TV, Apple CEO Tim Cook mentions in a full-length version of a recent Bloomberg interview. "I love operating my Apple TV from the watch. I don't have to worry anymore about the remote falling through the cushions of the sofa," he says. The interviewer notes that the public has yet to see the matching app. "There's -- I don't think we showed this," Cook responds. "I've got a little advance copy. And so it will operate your Apple TV, and you can imagine that it can control other things as well."...

Yesterday, Skype released an update for its iOS app to include iOS 8-optimized notifications and other goodies. However, it has no support for the higher-resolution iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus displays. That will change next month, per a Skype spokesperson:

We’re currently working on an update to Skype for iPhone that scales for iPhone 6 and 6 Plus screen sizes, which we plan to release in the next month.

Unfortunately, that sounds like quite a while. Hopefully the updated version isn’t just bigger, but more optimized for the larger 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch panels.

iOS 8 adoption nears 50 percent after just 6 days

iPhone and iPad users still flock to download the latest version of iOS as it becomes available, but perhaps not as quickly as before.

According to Apple's developer portal, iOS 8 adoption now stands at 46 percent, while 49 percent of users are still on iOS 7. The remaining 5 percent are using “earlier” versions.

iOS 8 launched on Wednesday, September 17, which means the new version has been available for about six days. Apple didn't provide official data at this point last year, but several third-party metrics firms claim that uptake of iOS 8 has been slower than the previous version.

Research firm IHS, however, has shared a teardown analysis report with Re/code that claims Samsung is still responsible for a fraction of Apple’s A8 chips produced.

Why Apple needs Beats Music to keep its street cred

Apple isn’t shutting down Beats Music, the streaming music service it snagged as part of its $3 billion deal to

Reports of Beats Music’s imminent demise swirled around the Internet on Monday, but Apple quickly denied the rumors, telling the

flatly: “This is not true.” Re/code noted that Beats

Apple has quietly updated its CarPlay microsite which explains the feature to add CBS News Radio to its growing list of apps it grants CarPlay support to, but a bigger change also appears on the CarPlay site this morning. Apple is no longer promising CarPlay support from any automobile manufacturer this year as it has done since its debut in March. While there has been no shortage of CarPlay demoes and availability announcements, actually getting your hands on a model with CarPlay thus far has proven almost impossible.

Per Taiwan’s Commercial Times, the next-gen iPad Air will enter production in September, shipping next month.

Commercial Times also suggests that the next-generation Retina iPad mini might not launch alongside the iPad Air, coming instead in early 2015, with a 12.9-inch “iPad Pro” to follow in the second quarter of 2015.

The cable, which is said to offer USB 3.1’s 10Gbps of data transfer speed, will also carry up to 100 watts of power and be able to deliver audio and video signals via DisplayPort technology.

These features come courtesy of the “Alternate Mode” technology introduced in the recent USB Power Delivery specification—the one that enables 100W power delivery. Alternate Mode essentially lets Type-C be used for more than mere data transfer by allowing “Structured Vendor...

iOS 8 Adoption at 46%, or Maybe 35%

Apple's iOS 8 has reached a 46 percent adoption rate only six days after it was released, according to the company's developer site data. Tracking services Appsee and Mixpanel, however, are showing a lower adoption percentage at around 35 percent, which still accounts for a substantial number of iPhones and iPads upgrading in just a week.

The Mac Observer Spin: iOS 8 is trailing a little behind iOS 7's first week adoption rate, and that may be because some features are waiting on OS X Yosemite's release for the Mac. We could see a jump in updates once Yosemite is available.
