AWT TV Episode 19: August 14, 2017 --- Total Solar...

Welcome to AWT TV, a weekly show featuring Steve Sande, Dennis Sellers and Marty Edwards of Apple World Today. Each week we'll discuss what's happened in the world of Apple, talk about new apps and accessories, maybe even have a demonstration or two of the latest software.  Be sure to subscribe to the Apple World Today video channel on YouTube.

It's one week until the August 21, 2017 Total Solar Eclipse across America, so Steve and Marty discuss the eclipse, apps that can help you find the best location to observe totality, and more. If you're totally unfamiliar with what's going to happen, this show is well worth watching. 

To begin with, Steve (who saw a total solar eclipse back in 1998) talks about what makes a total eclipse so special, including certain phenomena that are only...

Twelve South throws MacBook owners a Curve

If you have a MacBook of any sort, you may find looking down at the screen to be uncomfortable. That's why MacBook stands that elevate the device above a desk or table are so popular, making it simple for anyone to have a MacBook screen at the proper ergonomic height while using an external keyboard and mouse/trackpad for data entry. Today, Twelve South announced the Curve, a US$49.99 matte black aluminum stand that is a new take on an old classic.

That's right -- if the design of the Curve looks somewhat familiar, it's because Twelve South Creative Director and co-founder Andrew Green designed the original "iCurve" stand back in 2003 for Griffin Technology. As Green notes in his blog entry, "I knew someday I wanted to refresh the classic design for the...

Apple, other tech firms submit amicus brief in ‘...

Apple and other tech firms have submitted a amicus brief in a case before the U.S. Supreme Court, expressing concerns about warrantless police access to cellphone location data, notes AppleInsider.

Airbnb, Cisco, Dropbox, Evernote, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Mozilla, Snap, Twitter, and Verizon join the Cupertino, California-based company in arguing that the court should "refine the application of certain Fourth Amendment doctrines to ensure that the law realistically engages with Internet-based technologies and with people's expectations of privacy in their digital data."

All this involves the case of Timothy Carpenter v. United States. It involves a string of armed robberies that occurred over a two-year period. A group of at least five men — lead by Carpenter — would go into cellphone stores armed with guns,...

Previously called "Budgie-Remix," it is an Ubuntu-based distribution featuring the Budgie desktop.

Portable SSDs are finally starting to come down in price as competition is continuing to ramp up between manufacturers. In the spring we saw Western Digital unveil a new line of USB-C drives designed for Apple’s latest MacBooks. Fast forward to today, and Samsung is refreshing its popular external storage solutions with its new T5 offerings.

USB-C is at the forefront of these new Samsung drives but those still rocking USB-A will be able to take advantage, too. Hidden amongst today’s announcement is that the T5 lineup will be able to hit speeds up to 540MB/s, which is right on level with Samsung’s internal desktop SSDs. More details below.

The August 21st solar eclipse is fast approaching, which means time is running out to get ready for the event. I’ve already said how important the right protective eyewear is and I’ll say it again: If you don’t use ISO 12312-2 certified eye protection to watch the eclipse you’ll damage your eyes and may go blind. Eye protection that meets the ISO standard is getting harder to find with the eclipse only days away, but the American Astronomical Society has an awesome list of glasses and retailers that may have them on its website. If you don’t have your eclipse glasses yet this is a handy resource to track some down before next Monday.

Apple is expected to introduce three new iPhones as soon as September: 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch LCD models we call iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus, and a 5.8-inch OLED model we call iPhone 8. While the iPhone 8 will feature an all-new bezel-less design, the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus are expected to look much like the current flagship iPhones.

One change for the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhones expected next month is a material return from aluminum backs to glass, and now a new rumor claims that shift will result in a slightly thicker casing.

Huawei overtakes Apple in the Central and Eastern...

Samsung led the smartphone market in Central and Eastern Europe in Q2 2017, shipping 4.9 million units, a year-on-year increase of 14%, according to Canalys. This was due to strong demand for Galaxy A and J series products, which have been updated this year, adds the research group.

China-based Huawei retook the number two spot from Apple in Central and Eastern Europe in the second quarter (Q2) of 2017. It shipped 1.8 million smartphones to take a 12% market share, beating Apple by fewer than 50,000 units. Its strength was in low-to-mid-range products, with the P10 Lite becoming its best-seller in the region.

“Huawei slipped behind Apple briefly in Q1 2017,” says Canalys Analyst Ben Stanton. “Apple did an excellent job of upselling its installed base to the iPhone 7 Plus, whereas Huawei suffered the fallout from its extremely aggressive end to 2016. It built a great deal of channel...

This is a fascinating story about how Winamp squandered its opportunity to be the dominant force in the music universe.

Great read, all the way through, but this bit amazed me:

Amazingly, given all the time elapsed, AOL still makes a decent amount of money on the site and on the program—while the company has declined to release official figures, former employees who worked on Winamp estimate its current revenue at around $6 million annually.

Wait, what? I find that astonishing.

This piece originally ran on June 24, 2012 (and Winamp finally called it quits in November 2013).

Ah, that explains it. Still, a great read.

CNBC:

Apple and Aetna held a series of secret discussions last week to bring Apple’s health and fitness-tracking smartwatch to millions more people connected to Aetna, according to three people familiar with the matter.

The insurer, which covers 23 million, offers an Apple Watch to its 50,000 employees as part of its corporate wellness program. Now, Aetna is negotiating with Apple on a plan to offer a free or discounted Apple Watch, Apple’s wearable device, as a perk to its members.

Seems to me a brilliant move. For Apple, a discounted Apple Watch brings potential new customers to the ecosystem. For Aetna, it’s possible they’re doing this just to make money on Apple Watch sales, but more likely, they’ve run the numbers, see a cost saving with insured folks having an Apple Watch.

Apple has at least considered making more cases along the lines of its iPhone 7 Smart Battery Case. The company has filed for a patent (number 9,735,595) for a “single piece case with a battery and a hinge.”

In the patent filing, Apple notes that accessory devices can be used as a protective cover for an electronic device (the iPhone) as well as provide an aesthetic appearance. And some accessory devices may include a power supply designed to provide electrical current to the smartphone. Apple says that, also, typical accessory devices include at least one layer of material disposed across the entire accessory device. For example, a region of the accessory device designed to receive the electronic device may include a rigid polymeric material, such as plastic, disposed across the entire region. This offers a continuous, uniform protection to the electronic...

The updated 12-inch MacBook helped expanded MacBook shipments by 17.1% from the first quarter to 3.98 million units. TrendForce also anticipates a double-digit sequential growth for third-quarter MacBook shipments as Apple will focus on the MacBook Pro series during the year’s second half.

The top five laptop companies for the first half of 2017 are HP (23.4% market share), Lenovo (20.1% market share), Dell (16.4% market share), Apple and ASUS with 10% market share each.  TrendForce says the global notebook shipments for this...

TSMC enters mass production of 10-nanometer A11...

Processor manufacturer TSMC has reportedly entered the mass production stage of its 10-nanometer “A11” processors for Apple’s next-gen iPhone.

While the new iPhone’s ship date has yet to be announced, TSMC is said to be applying the same 10-nanometer FinFET manufacturing technique being used to make A10X chips for this year’s 10.5- and 12.9-inch iPad Pros. The A10X is in fact believed to be the first chip produced with the technique, though TSMC does have other clients.

At present, the A10 processor used in the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus handsets feature a 16-nanometer design. The smaller size of the new processor could allow for better performance in a similarly-sized package and help improve power efficiency.

The “iPhone 8” could ship as soon as next month albeit in very low quantities. Indeed it’s rumored that the phone will only start mass assembly in September, when typically Apple prefers to have a month or two under its belt for any new iPhone.

KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has released a new research note and has predicted that the Apple Watch 3 will ship later this year with both LTE and non-LTE models offered. Kuo also expects the next Apple Watch will retain the same general design and not feature an obvious new form factor.

Kuo added that the Apple Watch will probably continue to ship in 38mm and 42mm size configurations.

The prediction comes 10 days after Bloomberg’s report that the Apple Watch may feature Intel modems for LTE connectivity.

Kuo’s note also added that the third-generation Apple Watch with cellular connectivity will not support 3G connections, only LTE, which will limit which markets in which it can be sold and used.

Google Pays Apple $3 Billion Per Year To Remain On...

In a note to investors on Monday, Bernstein analyst A.M. Sacconaghi Jr. said Google is paying Apple billions of dollars per year to remain the default search engine on iPhones and iPads. "The firm believes that Google will pay Apple about $3 billion this year, up from $1 billion just three years ago, and that Google's licensing fees make up a large bulk of Apple's services business," reports CNBC. From the report: "Court documents indicate that Google paid Apple $1 billion in 2014, and we estimate that total Google payments to Apple in FY 17 may approach $3 billion," Bernstein analyst A.M. Sacconaghi Jr. said. "Given that Google payments are nearly all profit for Apple, Google alone may account for 5% of Apple's total operating profits this year, and may account for 25% of total company OP growth over the last two years."

While an earlier report had claimed that Apple would introduce a new Apple Watch form factor this year, KGI’s Ming-Chi Kuo today stated that this year’s model will feature the same design as the previous iterations. Such a move on Apple’s part will mark three generations with the same design for Apple Watch.

Koogeek LB1 Smart Light Bulb: Colorful HomeKit...

Koogeek seems to be single-handedly taking over the home automation field by developing and marketing low-cost HomeKit accessories. The latest from the company is the LB1 Smart Light Bulb, a $54.99 (available on Amazon for $36.99 -- affiliate link) LED bulb that can display over 16 million colors and can be controlled by the Home app and Siri.

The Koogeek LB1 Smart Light Bulb

Design

Many LED light bulbs tend to be a little oddly shaped; the Koogeek LB1 reminds me somewhat of an Easter egg with a dark bottom that contains the electronics for the bulb and a top that can display that huge spectrum of colors. 

Using a standard E26/E27 screw base, the 8W LB1...

Analyst: Apple Watch Series 3 to be available in LTE...

In a note to clients — as noted by AppleInsider — KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says the upcoming Apple Watch Series 3 — expected in September —will offer LTE cellular connectivity, but won’t sport a new form factor, as some have rumored. 

Apple currently requires its smartwatch to be connected wirelessly to an iPhone to stream music, download directions in maps, and send messages while on the go. Equipped with LTE chips, at least some next gen Apple Watch models will be able to conduct many tasks without an iPhone in range, according to Bloomberg. For example, a user would be able to download new songs and use apps and leave their smartphone at home.

Kuo says the next gen smartwatch come in 38mm and 42mm and will be available in LTE and non-LTE versions. He predicts that Apple will ship 8-9 million Apple...

Johana Harth is the Academic Director of a Colorado charter school. Over the last 12 years, she’s gained enormous experience in how to match the curriculum needs of K-8 grade students with modern computer technology. Thanks to the technical influence of her father, and being very good at math, as a youth her plan was to become an engineer. She graduated from U.C. San Diego with a degree in industrial engineering. All was according to plan until some significant, serendipitous events changed her life. Just how she became the Academic Director of a charter school, and then became involved in computer technology is an amazing story. Johanna explained the school’s migration from Macs to Chromebooks, when the students start with computers, how they use them and what they’re taught about computers. It’s a very, ahem, educational story.

Folks have posted quite a few ARKit demos on YouTube since Apple’s announcement of of the software development kit at WWDC 2017. We’ve covered many of these demonstrations in previous articles.
