Launch weekend sales for Apple's new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus hit the 10 million mark, coming in above last year's iPhone 5s launch at 9 million units. Apple CEO Tim Cook said this year's launch numbers would've been even higher if more inventory had been available.

Fun Rant about Those Who Claim Apple is the Copier

I got a tip Saturday about a new blog called Tim Cook's Id, with the subheading "what Tim Cook id is really thinking." I'm not sure if that's the case, but the inaugural rant is a beauty about those claiming Apple is the real copier in the mobile world. It's titled, "Anyone saying Apple copied Samsung/Google with a big screen phone is a $%&# idiot," which cuts to the chase. It's also invective-filled and spewy, but it's a solid assessment of the mental gyrations necessary to come to such a conclusion. TCI takes aim at Android fans, Apple haters, Judge Lucy Koh, the U.S. Department of Justice, tech journalists, Wall Street, and Jim Cramer, and that's just for starters. Hopefully this isn't a one-off. Enjoy.

When AT&T first introduced its Next plan earlier this year it was received with a lot of skepticism and negativity.

For Dave Hamilton none of those things are true and they may not be true for you, either. You may find that AT&T Next is the best deal you can get, especially if you're on a family plan with multiple phones.

The young man who bought the first iPhone 6 in Perth, Australia-where the iPhone 6 has already gone on sale-dropped it during a local TV news interview. The reporter got him to open the box for the cameras, but when he did, the iPhone slipped out and followed the gravity train straight down onto the concrete. There are no details-yet-on what exactly happened to the device, but the young man is seen picking at the screen before the cameras stop. Holy smokes, but do I feel for this kid. If it broke, I hope Apple replaces it for him, if the retail store didn't already do it on the spot. [Via Macworld tweet.]

Apple laid the groundwork for the future of its iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch operating system last year with iOS 7, and now the company is building on that foundation with the launch of iOS 8. Instead of shocking us with a new look that shuns the old skeuomorphic feel -- that happened last year -- Apple is giving us tighter integration between our mobile gear and our Macs, and making features we're already familiar with more useful. Apple promised lots of great new features, but many of those won't be available until next month. Is there enough today to justify making the jump to iOS 8, or should you follow Apple's lead and wait until October, too? Read on to find out if iOS 8 is ready to meet your needs today.

Analyst: iPhone 6 Launch Weekend Sales to Fall Short...

Following its record breaking iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus pre-order launch Apple has been expected to sell around 10 million smartphones during this weekend's in-store rollout, but Bernstein Research's Toni Sacconaghi thinks the company will fall short of that number. Instead of calling doom and gloom, Mr. Sacconaghi thinks that won't be any big deal because launch weekend sales are more about inventory availability than demand.

The Mac Observer Spin: Tony Sacconaghi may think it isn't any big deal if iPhone 6 launch weekend sales don't hit the 10 million unit mark, but it's a safe bet other analysts and the media will skewer Apple and say the company -- or at least the iPhone -- is doomed.

A 3D Printed Microscope for Your iPhone for Pennies

Scientists at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) in Richland, Washington have developed a 3D printed microscope housing for various mobile devices that costs pennies. Combined with an easily available glass bead, the device can offer up to 1,000x magnification. The result is a cheap, digital microscope that can be used in the field to photograph and transmit images of biological samples and get results in minutes. If contaminated, the device is so cheap, it can be thrown away and a new one substituted. "We believe it can fill a need for professional first responders, and also for teachers and students in the classroom, health workers and anyone who just wants an inexpensive microscope readily available," said Rebecca Erikson an applied physicist at PNNL. The laboratory has made the 3D printer specifications available for free, and the video notes, "We've found that the iPhone 5 provides a more optimal picture."

Apple Adds App-specific Password Support to iCloud

Apple added two-step authentication support to iCloud on Tuesday, and also announced that app=specific passwords for the online service will be available starting on October 1. App-specific passwords will let users assign unique passwords to apps that need access to iCloud without having to hand over their primary login and potentially give full access to everything in their account.

The Mac Observer Spin: App-specific passwords will be a great way to help keep your iCloud data secure because third-party apps and services won't have your full login. If any are compromised, hackers will have access only to the content that app or service used, and if your Mac or iPhone is lost or stolen, you can revoke individual passwords to reduce the risk of someone getting at data you'd rather keep private.

Foxconn struggling to meet demand for iPhone 6

The Wall Street Journal reports that Foxconn, Apple’s main manufacturing partner, may be struggling to keep up with the demand for the new iPhone 6 models.

The pricey new pocket camera is only a little thicker than Canon’s S-series models, but packs a comparatively huge 1” sensor with 20-Megapixel effective…

Apple Pay Sparks Banks to Fight Over Consumer’s...

iOS 8's Apple Pay feature won't be available until some time in October, but that isn't stopping banks from firing up their marketing campaigns in hopes of becoming consumer's default credit card choice. Banks are seeing Apple Pay's NFC-based mobile payment system as a potential big win for them, and want to make sure they score the coveted default card spot on customer's new iPhone 6.

The Mac Observer Spin: If banks are fighting over the default card spot in Apple Pay, maybe there is a chance it could be the system that finally gives NFC-based payments the kickstart it needs to take off in the United States.

Analyst: China iPhone 6 Delay is No Big Deal

Apple's new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus will be in stores in several countries this Friday, but not in China. Apple may not be able to roll out its latest iPhone models in the country until the end of this year, or even early next year, but that's no big deal because the company will still be able to sell as many smartphones as it can make, according to Wells Fargo analyst Maynard Um.

The Mac Observer Spin: No iPhone 6 models in China means more for everywhere else. By the time China does approve the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, Apple will have been able to make even more inventory. Instead of fixing iPhone 6 demand, China will supplement already high demand with more customers.

Connecticut AG Questions Apple Watch Privacy

Connecticut Attorney General George Jepsen is asking Apple to detail just how the Apple Watch will safeguard user's privacy because the smartwatch will be able to collect and store health-related data. Mr. Jepsen sent Apple CEO Tim Cook a letter on Monday posing his questions and asking for a meeting to discuss his concerns.

The Mac Observer Spin: Personal privacy is a serious concern, especially when our health is involved. Mr. Jensen's questions don't seem out of line, and considering Apple's ongoing push for privacy, and the company's assertion that it doesn't want to collect and store personal data, it's likely he'll like the answers he gets.

Apple: iPhone 6 NFC Just for Apple Pay

The NFC chip in the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus will be used only for Apple Pay, making it hands-off for third party developers. That means other uses, like proximity-based device pairing, is off the table for now.

The Mac Observer Spin: It's unfortunate Apple chose to block third-party developers from using the NFC chip in the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The chip could be used for much more than just credit card payments, so we're keeping our fingers crossed that Apple will open NFC to other developers at some point.

While only modestly thickening the devices, and adding very little weight, ZeroChroma enabled each iPad to stand upright on your choice of reclining angles, supporting a wide variety…
