Appellate Judge Questions Government’s Case against...

A Judge hearing Apple's appeal in its iBooks price fixing conviction in the ebook market questioned that conviction and the very premise of the U.S. Department of Justice's (DOJ) case against the company. During a hearing on Monday, Judge Dennis Jacobs took an openly critical stance in his questioning of DOJ attorneys-one of the other two judges also appeared doubtful of the case, while the third apparently seemed to take a stance more in line with the District Court judge who convicted Apple.

Jury begins deliberations in antitrust lawsuit over...

The class-action lawsuit against Apple over alleged anticompetitive behavior in how the iPod handled songs from third-party much stores is finally in the hands of a jury. Following last week’s final witness testimony, the jury has started deliberations in the decade-old case.

The evidence and testimony in this case have given us quite a bit of insight into the way Apple operated ten years ago with regards to its iPod and iTunes business. Former CEO Steve Jobs...

Apple, GT Advanced reach new deal on settlement,...

The judge in the New Hampshire-based bankruptcy court overseeing the legal wrangle between Apple and its former sapphire production partner GT Advanced Technologies has signed off on a revised agreement between the two companies that is intended to stave off additional court proceedings that could tie up the matter for years, from creditors who were concerned that Apple was getting paid first. The new deal doesn't change the fundamental tenets of the agreement, but allows other creditors more funds from the first sales of GT Advance's furnaces....

New settlement in GT Advanced bankruptcy case gives...

The Wall Street Journal reported today that Apple and GT Advanced Technologies have reached a settlement in their ongoing bankruptcy case. The settlement, which was approved by the courts earlier today, gives the sapphire supplier up to four years to sell its current stock of sapphire production equipment in order to repay Apple.

The two companies previously went head-to-head over who should be considered responsible for the complete failure of the partnership, with GT blaming Apple for making demands the company couldn’t meet while blocking any other contracts GT may have...

Jury begins deliberations in billion-dollar Apple...

OAKLAND, Calif.—The long-running iTunes antitrust lawsuit against Apple has gone to a jury, which took the case after about three hours of closing arguments today. The jury will make an unusual split decision, deliberating first over the narrow issue of whether iTunes 7.0 was a true product improvement or an anti-competitive scheme to kick out Apple competitor RealNetworks.

If the jury sees the "software and firmware updates" in iTunes 7.0 as a real improvement, the case will be over—a win for Apple. If it doesn't see it that way, the jurors will still have to decide if Apple broke competition laws and, if so, how much the company should pay in damages. Plaintiffs are asking for $351 million, and any award will be tripled under antitrust law.

Plaintiffs representing a class of eight million consumers and resellers say Apple's behavior was anti-competitive, because the iTunes update stopped Real's competing...

How to Use a Lego Kit to Measure Planck’s Constant

Planck's constant is one of the fundamental constants in the universe. For example, it defines the relationship between the energy of, say, a photon and its frequency. It's widely used in the mathematics of Quantum Mechanics. Recently, using just a Lego kit and some other equipment, including a laser, Leon Chao at the National Institute of Standards and Technology in Gaithersburg, Maryland, showed how to make this measurement. This is for real, and it works because the experimental technique simply requires a well crafted balance. It's all written up in the M.I.T. Technology Review. You could actually do the experiment yourself because the costs of parts is only about US$500. Very cool.

Martin Freeman takes The Hobbit to The Office on SNL

What do you get when you cross The Hobbit with The Office (the original UK version, not the US one)? A brilliantly wonderful SNL sketch starring Martin Freeman as a morph between Bilbo Baggins and Tim Canterbury. Tim, by the way, was the role Martin played in The Office. SNL did a great job of recreating the Ricky Gervais version of the series, and Martin had no problem at all slipping back into the role of Tim with a perfect splash of Bilbo thrown in. Bonus: Gollum as Gareth, and Orcs and elves as office mates.

Judge leans toward Apple on first day of e-book...

One of the three judges overseeing the appeal of the e-book antitrust verdict against Apple, Dennis Jacobs, was "openly hostile to the [US] government's case" on the first day of proceedings, says Agence France-Presse. Apple is accused of conspiring with book publishers to artificially inflate the costs of e-books, with a particular aim at undermining Amazon, which was at one point selling mainstream titles for $10; those prices went up several dollars as a result of Apple's efforts. Jacobs today argued, however that Apple was a "new entrant" into the e-book world "breaking the hold of a marke...

Canadian probe into Apple's carrier deals...

More details have emerged on the Canadian Competition Bureau's investigation into Apple's carrier deals, Reuters reports. Most important may be the Bureau's specific goals, which are to learn if Apple has been discouraging carriers from offering discounts or other incentives for competing phones, or even offering those phones at all. "The contractual obligations [with the carriers] may therefore increase the price Canadian consumers have paid, are paying or will pay for handset devices and wireless services," reads an affidavit from Vincent Millette, the head of the Bureau's probe....

Google app for iOS, Android adds Google Nest controls

To use Google’s voice commands:

On your mobile device, open the Google app and either tap the mic or say “Ok Google” to get started. Then say, “turn the temperature to 70 degrees”. In Chrome, either tap the mic or type directly in the...

Review: Kenu Stance Compact Tripod for iPhone

Kenu's Stance ($30) is a compact tripod mount for newer iPhones — it plugs directly into an iPhone's Lightning port. The three-legged mount uses a ball-and-socket joint to tilt and rotate the iPhone, while the zinc alloy legs have soft feet for setting up securely in landscape or portrait viewing positions. Stance is about 3.1" long, and weighs 1.2 ounces. Kenu points out that the tripod mount is smaller than a stick of gum. As a nice bonus, Kenu included a bottle opener on the side of one of Stance's legs, adding extra functionality to the accessory.{/exp:char_limit}

Gartner: iPhone sees growth while Samsung continues...

Gartner today published its third quarter numbers, showing overall growth in the smartphone market and a strong quarter for Apple. Mobile devices overall saw as many as 456 million sold with smartphones taking a 301 million slice of that pie, which comes out to a solid 66% (up 20% from last year). This shift in the market seems to be hurting Samsung and Nokia the most, because while the Korean giant is still leading the pack, this year smaller companies with slimmer margins seem to be taking some of its foothold.

While the number of devices that ship with Android continues to surpass iOS by leaps and bounds, the report for this quarter shows a strong increase in iPhone sales for Apple thanks to the launch of the iPhone 6. Sales were up 26% quarter over quarter,...

Apple Watch design from a watch designer

It’s beautiful. As someone who designs consumer electronics and watches, the more I looked at it the more impressed I was. It’s got Marc Newson’s fingerprints all over it.

It’s clearly something he designed rather than Jony Ive. It’s funny they announced he was working with them after the watch. But to me that was the Apple way of underhandedly giving him credit for the design without actually saying he designed it. But it seemed to me very Marc Newson.

A fascinating story.

The insane history of how American paranoia ruined...

Vox:

Some 60 years ago, during the era of McCarthyism, comic books became a threat. The panic culminated in a Senate hearing in 1954. This, of course, isn’t to say that McCarthyism and the comic book panic were comparable in their human toll. But they share the same symptoms of American fear and a harsh, reactive response to it.

What adults thought was best for children ended up censoring and dissolving away years of progress and artistry, as well as comics that challenged American views on gender and race. Consequently, that cemented the idea that this was a medium for kids — something that we’ve only recently started disbelieving.

Fascinating history of what comic books used to be and how we got to where we are now.

Samsung invested $3.9 billion in that plant specifically to make chips for Apple. So now Apple can say its CPU is "Made in America."

The Internet should be a basic human right, but access to it is increasingly unequal around the globe, said Tim Berners-Lee, founder of the World Wide Web Foundation, as he launched its annual Web Index last week. The Web has the potential to be a great equalizer, Berners-Lee asserted, but only "if we hard-wire the rights to privacy, freedom of expression, affordable access and Net neutrality into the rules of the game." That currently does not appear to be happening. The Web is becoming less free and more unequal, the Web Index suggests.

The answer is that a lot’s been happening, complete with name calling, insults, intimidation, lying, begging and name dropping as the studio vied to find the perfect lead for the part of Jobs himself.

The emails, which were dated in February and reposted on Defamer, discuss Aaron Sorkin’s adaptation of Walter Isaacson’s Steve Jobs biography, how Jobs himself would be portrayed, whether Sony would assign resources to the Jobs movie or Angelina Jolie’s Cleopatra epic and a bevy of verbal back and forth between Sony Pictures co-chariman Amy Pascal and controversial producer...

The length should allow you to easily plug in just about anywhere you go, and the dual-connector design lets you plug into either a Lightning-equipped iPhone,…

Apple poised to overtake Nokia in mobile phone sales...

Handset heavyweight Nokia could cede its position as the second-largest mobile phone vendor in the world to Apple as soon as the fourth quarter of this year, as an iPhone 6-powered sales spike has pushed the Cupertino company to near-parity with the Finnish giant, according to the latest research from Gartner.

Some Genius Bars are being repurposed for the...

As they’ve done in year’s past, some Apple retail stores this holiday season will repurpose the Genius Bar for additional product space, pick-ups, or other uses as Apple attempts to make the shopping experience for customers as smooth as possible, 9to5Mac has learned.

The repurposing for the holidays will only arrive in some stores depending on needs and traffic, with some stores scheduled to use the Genius Bar area to complete express sales and hold products scheduled for pick-up. Other changes, however, will go beyond the holidays as the stores under new retail chief Angela Ahrendts evolve to better deal with increased foot traffic.

For some stores that means that the Genius Bar itself might be closed until the new year, but Geniuses will still be available on the...

Review: Drop Scale makes baking foolproof w/...

As a dedicated fan of kitchen gadgets, a Bluetooth scale linked to a companion iPad app that walks you through recipes step-by-step was too much to resist. Besides, it was a chance to bake some cookies and call it work (though I’m not entirely convinced the taxman is going to allow me to deduct the cost of the ingredients).

The scale is very compact – a little under 6.5 inches across with the front lip, and around 5.5 inches wide. There are no visible controls or display, but the lip contains a button and a hidden LED which lights up briefly when the scale connects to the app. Otherwise, it’s entirely featureless … 

Once you select your recipe, it starts by listing the difficulty, prep time and...

Apple debuts new Christmas TV ad, 'The Song...

Apple has launched a new Christmas-themed TV ad, "The Song" (below). Much like last year's "Misunderstood," the spot focuses on lifestyle branding rather than directly promoting Apple products. Its story has a girl discovering a record given from her grandmother to her grandfather in 1952, featuring the grandmother singing "Love is Here to Stay." The girl then uses a MacBook to help her learn and record a duet over the old recording; she leaves an iPad mini with a note attached for her grandmother to find....

Gift Guide 2014: AudioEngine B2 Premium Bluetooth...

If you’re looking for a compact Bluetooth speaker I recommend the AudioEngine B2 ($299). The B2 sounds great and has better range than other speakers I’ve tested because of its antenna and specially tuned transmitter. In a two-story, mostly stucco and brick house my iPhone 6 easily reached the B2 speaker on the second floor when I was on the first.

The B2 includes the aptX audio decoder and a 24-bit digital-to-analog converter (DAC) for a beautiful, warm sound. The hand-built walnut cabinet is luxurious and dual front slots really pump the bass. I just wish that it had a battery so that I could toss it in a bag and drag it to the beach.

You can purchase the B2 Bluetooth Speaker in walnut (pictured), zebrawood or black ash from the...

How Apple blew it with Bluetooth

I use Bluetooth every day.

Bluetooth was rock solid on my iPhone 5s running iOS 7.x. I never thought about about it. It just worked. Every day.

Now I hate all of my Bluetooth gear.

Bluetooth is crappy with my iPhone 6 and iOS 8.1.x. Every one of my Bluetooth devices cuts out, drops out or starts warbling within a couple minutes of use.

After upgrading to an iPhone 6 (and iOS 8.1.2):

Have Intel and Microsoft Discovered the Fountain of...


This has been an interesting quarter. After Andy Grove left, Intel often seemed to struggle with its place in the world and seemed at odds with the computing OEMs. Now, though, it seems more and more like it did when it was 20 years younger. It's not alone, either. Microsoft, which seemed to have forgotten why there were OEMs in the first place for the last 15 or 20 years, suddenly is acting much more like the firm we knew in the early 90s. It feels like these companies have discovered the corporate fountain of youth.

Apple is having a busy time in court at the moment. Not only is it defending the iPod DRM class action, but is this morning beginning its appeal of the verdict of last year’s ebook trial.

The court ruled that Apple was guilty of anti-competitive practices in two ways. First, the company asked publishers to switch from wholesale pricing – where publishers sold in bulk to retailers, who set their own prices – to an agency model, where publishers set retail prices and retailers took a commission. The court ruled that this reduced price competition … ...

Sharing the misery: 2014 was a rough year for Uber,...

It was a weird, wild year for Uber, Lyft, and Airbnb, the companies that defined the so-called sharing economy and then quickly grew beyond it.

Sharing resources, also known as renting out stuff you’re not using, grew out of need. People struggling to cover rent from month to month can list their
couches or spare rooms on Airbnb. You can offer rides on Uber or Lyft to make your car payments.

But the feel-good talk about sharing faded this year as startups began raising money—piles of money—and expanding into new cities as fast as possible.
Apps that were focused on sharing are now emphasizing on-demand everything, and the biggest offenders of 2014 took a decidedly weird detour into dirty
business tactics (Uber) and downright scary situations (oh, Uber again).

It’s not a huge update, but it helps.

  • Added a battery test for Android, iOS.
