Kelly Guimont and John Martellaro join Jeff Gamet to share their thoughts on how the vision of tech from sci-fi shows translated to the real world, and they look at the promise of artificial intelligence and how that could eventually fit into our lives.

SwitchEasy B’Spoke for iPad Air

Although it doesn't have quite the design refinement we're used to seeing from SwitchEasy, B'Spoke for iPad Air ($50) is nonetheless interesting due to its unusually thin profile. Offered in either an all-brown or a black exterior/red interior combination, B'Spoke uses a leatherette-covered "Smart Memory Alloy" to achieve a 2.2mm thinness on all sides, including a folio-styled front lid and a trapezoidal support for conversion into a video stand.…

Siri Developers Hard at Work on Your Next AI Overlord

Apple's Siri voice recognition technology may be the culmination of the efforts from a long list of engineers, but it's also just the beginning. Part of the Siri development team has spun off to form their own company where they're working on a new voice recognition system that's more like Tony Stark's J.A.R.V.I.S. than asking your iPhone for a weather update.

The Mac Observer Spin: Siri is amazing technology, but it's barely the first step into true voice interaction with our smartphones. A true artificial intelligence system that learns and improves as it interacts with us sounds awesome -- and just a little scary.

Apple Offers Robin Williams iTunes Tribute for Movies

Apple has posted a tribute to Robin Williams in the iTunes Store, one day after the tragic death of the comedian. The company has gathered 23 comedies and 16 dramas , from the World According to Garp, to Mrs. Doubtfire, to The Birdcage (one of my personal faves), to Popeye, most of the actors work is represented. Missing (that I noticed) is Mork and Mindy, the sitcom where he made a national name for himself. Season 1 of The Crazy Ones, his most recent show, which was canceled in May. I've seen a few comments suggesting Apple is "cashing in" by posting this tribute (thanks to @Rich_DS for the heads up), and that might be the silliest thing i've seen said about Apple in recent memory, and that's saying something. Companies offer tributes on the death of a popular music artist or actor all the time, and people like to remember those who have died. More importantly, the idea that the $200,000 to $1 million extra Apple could conceivably net from this tribute would matter to the company...

Apple released a corporate Diversity report on Tuesday, laying out the ethnic and gender breakdown of its work force and leadership ranks. That report shows that Apple's work force is more diverse than the population as a whole, with under-representation of whites, Hispanics, and blacks, and an over-representation of Asians. At the same time, males are massively over-represented as a whole, and in its leadership ranks, white males in particular rule the roost.

Apple Pushing HealthKit as the Standard at Major...

Apple wants HealthKit to be more than another gimmick, so the company has been been meeting with major clinics and health centers to push for widespread adoption once the feature is available this fall. What Apple really wants is for HealthKit to become the standard for health and fitness data collection and sharing for every clinic and medical center.

The Mac Observer Spin: Apple may want to own the health and fitness market, but Google and Samsung do, too. Expect to see a big fight between the three for control over the data our bodies create.

The Mac Observer Spin: Anti-glare iPad screens sound great. How about bringing that back to the MacBook Pro, too?

Then they pared it down until it was stripped to its purest form, an aluminum stick with three buttons. Compare that to one of Sony's remotes designed for Google TV. 78 buttons. It's a mess.

I love the name-your-own-price bundles we get to offer through our friends at Stack Social. Today, we have the Front-End Master Bundle, a collection of 7 courses and 93 hours of training for front-end developers. Web development, Web design, JavaScript, JQuery, CSS & HTML for beginners, HTML5 and CSS3, and PHP, MySQL, and JavaScript. That's a ton of training, and individually all those course would retail for $1,042. This is a NYOP deal, however, so you get to decide how much to pay. Pay below the average, and you get two of the courses. Beat the average, which is only $5.81 right now, and you get all of the courses. But there's more, because 10 percent of what you pay goes to one of three charities: Child's Play Charity, World Wildlife Fund, or Creative Commons.

Level 29 Brings Old-school BBS to the Modern World...

Before the days of Web browsers and broadband Internet, online communities were hosted by single computers you connected to by dialing in over a traditional phone line via a modem. If you miss the old days -- or never had the chance to experience a BBS -- now you can, thanks to Level 29. The system runs on an Apple IIGS with a blazing fast (for 1983) 300 bps modem, but since not everyone happens to have a modem or physical phone line handy, you can also telnet in or connect via raw sockets. If you're still at a loss, go to the Level 29 website where you can view the BBS in your Web browser. It's retro-awesome, and it shows old computers can still do some really cool stuff.

She took the unprecedented move of pushing the trial forward, which could turn into an awkward and ugly mess for the companies.

Thanks to portable technology, pets can now scan neighborhood wifi networks. Wired reports on an upcoming DefCon talk from Gene Bransfield titled "How To Weaponize Your Pets", which is less a security talk and more a presentation of a clever way to find unsecured networks in the immediate area. Using a Spark Core board and the skills of the cat's human to sew a collar for it, he discovered more than a third of the hotspots in the area were less than secure. He says he did this for fun, but hopefully discovering a cat could detect open wifi networks might prompt some people to adjust their networks accordingly.

Patent Office Shoots Down Apple Infringement Claims...

The Mac Observer Spin: The USPTO is rejecting patent claims, Apple and Samsung are agreeing to scale back their legal battle, and there still hasn't been any significant change in either company's mobile device strategy.

Doctor Two (dressed as the Fourth Doctor) makes an appearance, along with familiar looking creatures who say "e-num-er-ate!" There's also a great cameo from someone wearing a gold Starfleet shirt who pauses dramatically at odd places in his sentences. Cap-TEN Kirk, perhaps?

Review: Zagg Rugged Folio for iPad Air

Upon first handling of the Rugged Folio, it was clear that the entire unit is well-made. The combination of polycarbonate and silicone makes for a comfortable and fairly sturdy case, which Zagg enables you to use in a standalone fashion. Initial installation can be a little challenging: when we tried to open the empty case to insert the iPad Air, the Rugged Folio was difficult to open, requiring some finagling. The case can be separated from the hinge…

iPhone 6 Will Have Sapphire Glass Thanks to GTAT’s...

Rumors jump back and forth between Apple using synthetic sapphire glass for the next iPhone display, and sticking with Corning's Gorilla Glass because there isn't enough sapphire to meet production needs. If the iPhone 6 doesn't ship with a sapphire glass display, it won't be because of a materials shortage; it'll be because Apple chose to stick with the same glass it's been using on previous iPhone models. Apple teamed with GT Advanced Technology to produce the synthetic sapphire it needs -- and not only has the company been ramping up production in a serious way, it also has a hoard of sapphire it already made stashed away.

NFL Now for iPhone, iPad, Apple TV Arrives in Time...

The National Football League's NFL Now app for the iPhone and iPad rolled out on Thursday with the promise of plenty of free content, and even more for viewers who pay for a US$1.99 a month subscription. NFL Now also showed up as a new Apple TV channel where you can see the same content that's available in the iPhone and iPad app.

The Mac Observer Spin: The lack of game broadcasts will no doubt be a disappointment for some football fans, but it sounds like there will still be plenty of interesting content available. Still, until pro sports franchises find a way to deliver their content outside of the traditional TV networks, sports fans won't be able to drop their cable subscriptions.

Too Tired to Order a Pizza? There’s an App for That

Pizza is a staple of life for many people, but that whole ordering for delivery thing? What a total pain. That is, unless you're using Push For Pizza from Simple Food Solutions. The iPhone app was developed by a team of clever teens who saw a need and filled it... with pizza. After you fill in some basic info, like your name, address and credit card number, the pizza joint you like, cheese or pepperoni, and you're ready to go. Just tap the pizza button and your pizza shows up, fully paid for, including tip. It's brilliant, it's simple, and your next pizza is just a tap away.

Up to $270 Off Rosetta Stone

I am stoked about today's deal because I love the product, Rosetta Stone. I'm not a linguistic scientist, but years ago I went through the company's Level 1 program for Japanese and it was amazing. On the other hand, it's expensive. Level 1, for instance, is $179 all by itself, and if you bundle Level 1-5, it retails for $499. With our deal, you can get up to $270 off-the more you buy the more you save. So, Level 1-5 is $229. If you just get Level 1, it's $40 off. Rosetta Stone also offers online subscriptions, and you can use our coupon for up to $270 on that, too. If you've been interested in Rosetta Stone, this is the best deal I've seen. It expires in one day, so get on it.
