When it comes to self-driving cars, not all cities...

One of the downsides of the self-driving future is it is coming in such a piecemeal fashion. Seemingly, every city and/or state will have their own laws and regulations regarding whether you can or cannot use elf-driving technology.

Brixo Adds Electric Bricks and Sensors to Your LEGO...

It’s no secret I have a serious love for LEGO, so it’s great when someone turns me on to something that makes my bricks even cooler—like Brixo. The LEGO-compatible bricks they designed are metal coated so they conduct electricity, which means you can drive motors and turn on lights in your creations without needing any wires. They designed bricks with lights, sensors, switches, motors, and batteries so you can build most anything you can imagine. Brixo’s kits start at US$35 and they’re available for pre-order now.

Hackers reportedly trying to extort Apple over...

A hacker or group of hackers is apparently trying to extort Apple over alleged access to a large cache of iCloud and other Apple email accounts, reports MotherBoard. Good luck with that, you hacks.

The hackers, who identified themselves as “Turkish Crime Family,” have demanded $75,000 in Bitcoin or Ethereum crypto-currencies, or $100,000 worth of iTunes gift cards in exchange for deleting the alleged cache of data, the article says. They’re threatening to reset a number of the iCloud accounts and remotely wipe victim's Apple devices on April 7, unless Apple pays the requested amount.

According to one of the emails in the accessed account, the hackers claim to have access to over 300 million Apple email accounts, including those use @icloud and @me domains. However, the hackers appear to be inconsistent in their story; one of the...

Opinion: The new low-cost iPad is further evidence...

If anyone had asked you to describe Apple’s pricing strategy in a sentence, this would – until recently – have been extremely easy to do. Apple aims to sell premium products at high margins to upmarket demographics. The company had shown almost no interest in more affordable products pitched to those on tighter budgets.

But Apple has long recognized that you need a way of building your long-term customer base, and one good way to do that is to get them when they’re young. Apple has made considerable efforts over the years to get its computers into schools and colleges, and to make them more affordable to students through its education discount.

The MacBook Air line too has been priced at a level where it is just about affordable for those who would otherwise buy cheaper Windows laptops – again, in no small part because Apple wants to attract younger buyers whose lifetime value to the company will be substantial....

Marriott testing Siri and Alexa to decide which will...

Bloomberg:

Amazon.com Inc.’s battle with Apple Inc. over digital assistants is moving to a new venue: hotel rooms, where Alexa and Siri are both vying to be the voice-controlled platform of choice for travelers.

Marriott International Inc., the world’s biggest lodging company, is testing devices from the two tech giants at its Aloft hotel in Boston’s Seaport district to determine which is best to let guests turn on lights, close drapes, control room temperature and change television channels via voice command. In December, Wynn Resorts Ltd. became the first hotel company to install Alexa-powered Echo devices, starting with suites at its flagship Wynn Las Vegas property.

This is a fascinating business conflict. Let’s say Marriott chooses Alexa and Hilton chooses Siri. Will Apple folks shift their staying habits, choosing to stay at a Siri friendly hotel? Is this forced choice good business? Is there a way to support both? I see a business opportunity for an Echo...

∞ Apple adds multiscreen movie rentals, brings back...

Mikey Campbell, writing for AppleInsider:

Introduced as part of iTunes 12.6, which is rolling out to users as of this writing, the “rent once, watch anywhere” feature lets customers watch content rentals on any iPhone or iPad running iOS 10.3 or Apple TVs running tvOS 10.2. Those operating system versions have yet to move out of beta, suggesting a launch in the next few days.

Prior to the change, rented movies were largely relegated to the device on which they were purchased. For example, a film rented on an iPad or Apple TV could not be transported to iPhone, or vice versa.

Huzzah. The one rental, one device model was painfully archaic. Long overdue.

Kindle for iOS finally gets the “Send to Kindle”...

Sarah Perez, Tech Crunch:

Amazon has quietly rolled out the “Send to Kindle” feature to its Kindle for iOS application that allows you to save to the app articles and documents found on the web. That means your Kindle device or app can replace your preferred “read it later” application — like Pocket or Instapaper, for example — apps where regular web readers often store the longer news articles, features or profiles they want to dig into at a later date.

Not sure of the impact of this move. I use the Kindle app to read books. And that’s it. Not sure the ability to “Send to Kindle” will even get an experimental look. Where’s the value? I can share everything to an app designed from the ground up for article or PDF reading. Why shift that workflow to run through Kindle?

Nick Heer, Pixel Envy:

I’m not convinced, though, that Clips is a serious competitor. I think it’s a perfectly fine app; the Live Titles feature — which makes onscreen captions based on what’s being said — is especially cool. But Clips is separate from Messages, so there are more steps between starting to capture a moment and showing it off.

Time will tell if Clips gains traction. One thing Apple has done is add more importance to Messages, complementing the addition of stickers and the Messages app store.

Apple’s drops AIDS charity branding for its red...

Jon Russell, TechCrunch:

The (PRODUCT)RED Special Edition iPhone 7 is the first time that Apple has supported the charity through its flagship phone, — previous (PRODUCT)RED editions have included Beats headphones and Apple accessories — so it is sure to heighten international awareness and generate additional funds since each purchase includes a contribution to the charity. The limited edition iPhone will go up for sale in over 40 parts of the world starting this Friday, but one market where the charitable tie-in will go unnoticed is China, the world’s largest country based on population.

Despite the potential for sales in China — where iPhones are status symbols, and a unique color can make a limited edition release particularly desirable — the red iPhone is not being promoted using the (PRODUCT)RED branding.

And:

Marriott pits Apple’s Siri again Amazons Alexa

Marriott International Inc., the world’s biggest lodging company, is pitting Amazon’s Alexa against Apple’s Siri to be the voice-controlled platform of choice in its hotels, reports Bloomberg.

The goal is to offer guests a virtual “hotel butler” that lets them access and manage systems such as heating, cooling, lighting and entertainment by speaking a request at home or using a smartphone. Marriott expects to decide whether to adopt Siri or Alexa for one or more of its chains as early as mid-year.

“Probably by the end of the first half of this year, we’ll have a pretty good indication of where we’re headed,” Toni Stoeckl — who oversees the Aloft, Element, AC and Moxy chains as global brand leader for lifestyle brands at Marriott — told Bloomberg. “The race is still on.”

In an effort to become to be its users’ professional news feed, LinkedIn has launched a new feature aimed at providing a broad set of perspectives on relevant business news.

A new Trending Storylines feature will show users a set of curated feeds based on key news of the day. For example, a recent storyline rounded up all of the Apple product announcements from Tuesday morning. The storylines open with a quick summary of the news, followed by a “must-read” story that LinkedIn has picked out as a good summary.

After that, the Storyline continues with other posts from its users, focused on providing other angles on the news along with additional context. Users can like, comment on or share those posts if they want to.

If looking at the fourth quarter alone, the new iPhone 7 was the 2016 best-seller, followed by iPhone 7 Plus, based on research from the group’s Smartphone Shipment Database, which tracks quarterly shipment data for more than 350 smartphone models. IHS Markit says Apple again has demonstrated that its new iPhones integrate enough innovations and new features to drive sales and remain successful in the market.

Apple announces updated iPad Air, iPad mini units,...

The new iPads were announced today.

And it looks like there’s some good stuff coming your way at a decent price.

Apple has bolstered the low end of its iPad lineup and discontinued the iPad Air 2. In its place is a new model that looks exactly the same, with a 9.7-inch retina screen, Touch ID, 32GB or 128GB of storage, and the same color choices (silver, gold, and space gray). The tablet sports an A9 processor identical to the one found in the iPhone 6s and the usual 10-hour battery. That’s a relatively small upgrade over the 8X chip that was in the iPad Air 2, but the price for the entry-level iPad has dropped from $399 to $299, which was once the price of the iPad mini.

For an additional $100, you can quadruple the storage to 128GB. As always, the cellular version of the iPad retails for another $130. The new entry-level iPad doesn’t feature the Smart Connector or Apple Pencil support, but there’s still some nifty stuff there.

iTunes 12.6 out the door, now includes “rent once,...

This could come in handy.

Apple on Tuesday released iTunes 12.6, complete with a new “rent once, watch anywhere” movie rental and playback feature.

The new addition, according to Apple, allows you to rent a movie on one device and watch it on another device.

Previously, it was possible to rent from iPhone, for example, then be restricted to that device to finish playback.

The new ‘watch anywhere’ feature for rentals appears to require iOS 10.3 and tvOS 10.2 however, although iOS is currently in developer and public beta and tvOS is only available in developer beta previews. Both software updates are likely coming soon for all users based on previous beta cycles as well as this iTunes release.

Apple still enforces a time limit on watching rental movies.

iTunes 12.6 requires Mac OS X 10.9.5 or later to run and can be downloaded and installed from the Mac App Store.

If you’ve tried the new version and have any feedback to offer,...

ChronoSync runs on the source Mac and ChronoAgent runs on the destination Mac giving you a direct connection between the two (both work with Mac OS X 10.8 or later). With ChronoSync on your Mac, you can synchronize, backup, and create bootable backups. ChronoSync can synchronize or backup to anything you can connect to your Mac. Add ChronoAgent to a destination Mac to give yourself a direct connection between two Macs for safer, faster, and more reliable syncs and backups.

Bigger monitors in demand -- so .... a 31-inch iMac...

The global market for computer monitors is projected to decline to 121.8 million units by 2022 due to falling desktop sales and the rapid penetration of handheld computing devices. However, when consumers do buy a monitor, they’ll turn to larger screens (31-inches or more in size), according to IDC.

The research group says the large monitor display segment above 31+ inches in screen size grew by 12.2% year-on-year in 2013 and will continue growing. If IDC is right -- and I suspect they are -- it seems to me that people are wanting bigger monitors for their desktops and/or bigger monitors with which to connect laptops.

In other words, even as more folks skip traditional computer purchases for tablets such as the iPad, when they want a computer, they want one with a BIG screen. And in the case of "cord cutters" who are ditching cable and satellite connections for...

Apple has updated iTunes for iOS and tvOS to version 12.6, which lets you rent videos once and watch them on multiple screens. However, it requires iOS 10.3 and tvOS 10.2, both of which are in beta testing. I’d expect to see the finished versions arrive on Wednesday or Thursday.

With the “rent once, watch anywhere” capability, you can rent a movie on one device (iPhone, iPad or Apple TV), then finish watching it on another (iPhone, iPad or Apple TV). Prior to iTunes 12.6 you had to finish watching a film on the device from which you first rented it.

However, Apple did allow movies rented on a Mac or PC to be transferred to an iOS device if you synced via USB; however, that content would disappear from your computer’s iTunes library. Of course, you could (and can) stream downloaded rentals from iOS and macOS devices to an Apple TV with Apple's AirPlay.

Hungarian government could ban Heineken’s red star

The Hungarian government is planning to implement a law that would ban all symbols that refer to Nazi occupation or communist suppression, which according to them, includes the red star on Heineken’s logo. This means that Heineken may be forced to change its label in Hungary, RTL Nieuws reports.

Damn.

Cracking the Shell


If you've begun to tinker with your desktop Linux terminal, you may be ready to take a deeper dive. You're no longer put off by references to "terminal," "command line" or "shell," and you have a grasp of how files are organized. You can distinguish between a command, an option and an argument. You've begun navigating your system. Now what? File manipulation -- that is, allowing users to traverse the directory structure and interact with its contents -- lies at the heart of Linux. There is a sizable arsenal of tools at your disposal.

iTunes 12.6 update will let you watch your iTunes...

While Apple’s new products announced on Tuesday grabbed all the attention, Apple also made an update to iTunes that movie renters will enjoy.

iTunes 12.6 is now available, and it has a new feature that the company dubs as “rent once, watch anywhere.” If you rent a movie on your iPad, iPhone, or Apple TV, you can now watch the movie on all those devices.

Prior to the 12.6 update, iTunes movie rentals on the iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV were restricted to the device the rental was made on. Also, iTunes movie rentals could be made on a Mac and then transferred to an iPhone or iPad by performing a sync. You could also play a rented movie to Apple TV by using AirPlay.

Tip: Easily Change Your iOS DNS Settings

You may have known that it’s possible to change your DNS on a Mac, but did you know you can also change your iOS DNS? Andrew Orr shows us how it’s done.

AWT News Update: March 21, 2017

Other than the rather mundane updates made by Apple early this morning, there wasn't a lot of Apple news for today:

New Apple Watch buyers face limited band selection

When I decided to buy an Apple Watch Series 2, I knew exactly which model I wanted: rose gold with the pink and midnight woven nylon band. It was a combination Apple highlighted on its website, but I wasn’t sure how many the store would keep in stock. Luckily, I snagged one of the few remaining at the SoHo Apple Store and wear it almost every day. Unfortunately, Apple has decided to stop making its watches so customizable in the box.

The rose gold Apple Watch Series 2 with pink and midnight woven nylon band is no longer a combination you can buy on Apple.com. In fact, you can’t choose a nylon band alongside your aluminum or stainless steel watch at all anymore. Your choices are a Sport band, a Milanese loop, or an ultra-expensive Hermès leather band.

Tip of the Day: Adjusting 3D Touch Sensitivity

Apple’s 3D Touch gestures which debuted with the iPhone 6s can be pretty useful for quickly cross-referencing information, calling up shortcut menus, and accessing rich notifications. However, since 3D Touch is a distinct gesture from merely touching and holding your finger on the screen, sometimes it can get a bit tricky to differentiate between the two, such as when trying to rearrange icons on the home screen as opposed to triggering shortcut…

iPad Pro, iPad, and iPad mini 4: What are the...

When Apple released a new iPad on Tuesday, the company also simplified the iPad lineup: instead of four iPad models, there are now three. This makes it easier to decide which iPad to buy, though there are still a lot of factors to consider. Let’s take a look at the major features you should think about when picking an iPad.

Size

If you want to carry your iPad around with you, then size is an important consideration. Here’s a breakdown of each iPad.

IDG

Screen

Just looking at the iPads, it’s difficult to discern any difference in the screens besides their sizes. All of the iPads use LED-backlit displays with Multi-Touch support and fingerprint-resistant oleophobic coating. But there are a few features that are found in some models and not in others that may not be obvious.

While bigger screens are nice, the downside to larger 4.7” and 5.5” iPhone models is that they can be more of a challenge to handle, making protective cases all the more necessary. This is clearly where GettaGrip is going with its new Grip2ü Boss ($30) for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus — a case designed to not only provide drop protection, but hopefully to prevent you from dropping your iPhone in the first place. The case is made from…

Father-son game app project 9 Card Golf reaches 5th...

One thing I love about Apple developers is that they're often everyday people who decide to write some outstanding apps. That's the case with Stephen M Moraco and his son Steve A Moraco of nearby Monument, Colorado, who collaborated on an iOS game called 9 Card Golf ($1.99) five years ago. While many iOS apps are built and then forgotten by their developers, 9 Card Golf is still going strong in the App Store and the father-son team has recently updated the card game to version 2.

9 Card Golf is a matching-card game that Stephen and Steve (AKA Iron Sheep Productions) put together originally for family and close friends. The app became more popular than expected, and the duo realized that since it was still being downloaded regularly without updates, that they should make sure it ran properly on all new iOS devices. Stephen wrote the app, while the "young Steve" designed...

Video Review: HomeKit-Compatible Koogeek SK-1 Smart...

2017 almost looks like it's the year of HomeKit, with many new products appearing on the market that work with Apple's home automation framework. Today we're taking a look at the Koogeek SK-1 Smart Socket (US$39.99, affiliate link - AWT will receive compensation from any purchase), a HomeKit-compatible light socket that screws into any US-standard lightbulb socket. Check out our video for a look at the device, pairing the SK-1 with HomeKit, and setting up an easy automation.

Pros:

  • Inexpensive
  • Easy to pair with HomeKit using the Apple Home app or Koogeek's proprietary app
  • Compact profile works in most lamps or light fixtures
  • Has all applicable home safety ratings

Cons:

Why the iPad mini is On Its Deathbed

A long time ago in this galaxy, Steve Jobs thought the 7-inch class iPad would be a bad idea. There wouldn’t be enough room to create great apps, he said.  The rest of the tablet market jumped in anyway, and Apple just had to follow. Think education. But Mr. Jobs was right. The 7.9-inch experience wasn’t that great for anything but iOS. Phablets arrived. And so, John ponders the demise of Apple’s iPad mini.

Google adds handy shortcuts to help with searching...

The Google app has always been a fantastic way to get quick info about the things we’re most interesting in, but now Google is making it even easier to find out what’s going on. Along with the search bar and cards, the latest update to the app brings a set of shortcuts that put relevant and timely info right at your fingertips.

When you launch the Google app, you’ll notice things have been moved around a bit. Directly below the search bar you’ll see new icons for weather, entertainment, sports, and restaurants, some of the more commonly searched phrases. Tap any one of them and you’ll be taken straight to a page with current information.

For example, if you tap on the the entertainment shortcut, you can see what’s playing at your local theater or what to watch on TV, as well as get any related news stories. Furthermore, you can tap to see trailers and reviews, or swipe through listings to catch up on your favorite shows.

Apple is stockpiling resources to make a splash in the augmented reality market. The company reportedly is not only marshaling internal resources behind its AR efforts, but also hiring talented outsiders and acquiring companies with expertise in AR hardware, 3D gaming and virtual reality software. The new outsiders include a former Dolby labs executive, and engineers who worked virtual reality headsets for Google and Microsoft.

Apple has announced that it will soon release Clips, a new social-focused photography and video app. The free Clips app will take square photos and videos that are ideal for most social networks, and it will offer fun features like titles, filters, and overlays. Apple gave Lauren Goode of the Verge early access, and she has written a full review. It’s unclear why Apple is making Clips separate from the Camera app — perhaps the company plans to field test new features in Clips before migrating the most popular to Camera? Or perhaps it’s meant as a precursor to an augmented reality app? Or maybe it’s just the latest incarnation of Photo Booth? We hope more becomes clear when Clips ships in April 2017.

The ban will include laptops, tablets, electronic book readers, and cameras. A U.S. Department of Homeland Security official told the BBC that the ban was based on “evaluated intelligence,” likely related to reports that Al Qaeda in the Arabian Penninsula is trying to build bombs with little or no metal content to target commercial aircraft.
