Sony’s XAV-AX100 in-car audio system supports Apple...

Sony Electronics has announced its XAV-AX100 in-car audio system, which offers Apple CarPlay as an option (and Android Auto, as well, but I know you'll prefer CarPlay). The system retails at $499.99 and will be available across North America as of late November

Compatible with iPhone 5 and later models, CarPlay provides a simplified way to use your iPhone interface on a car’s touch screen, giving users access to Siri voice controls, as well as Apple Maps, Apple Music, Phone, Messages, and a variety of third party apps.

The XAV-AX100 in-car audio system packs a 55 watts x 4 Dynamic Reality Amp 2 and EXTRA BASS low boost circuitry to overcome engine noise and reproduce clear sound at any volume. It also has a 10-band graphic equalizer.

A new report from Nowhereelse (translated link) revealed a leaked photo of a camera sensor purporting to be from the upcoming iPhone. While the report notes that that photo doesn’t reveal anything meaningful about the technical features of the camera, and that without anything comparative in the photo it’s not even possible to estimate the size of the new sensor, it does indicate that the design of the sensor connects have changed and…

WaterField launches Kickstarter campaign for iPhone...

WaterField Designs has launched its first Kickstarter campaign for the RFID-blocking, play-through, Intrepid Travel Wallet for the upcoming “iPhone 7” (and similarly-sized phones). It’s a wallet, an iPhone case and a travel attaché all in one.

It is a wallet, but also functions as an iPhone case and a travel attaché. As a wallet, its two interior side pockets hold credit cards, hotel card-keys and metro tickets and its main compartment is large enough for a stash of domestic or foreign bills and a pen. Built-in RFID-blocking capability offers a little extra security while out and about. An included zippered pouch, the Micro Wallet, fits inside the main compartment and secures coins or keys.

Apple’s Taiwan supplier reportedly fighting back...

According to Digitimes, suppliers in Taiwan are beginning to resist demands for ever-greater discounts from Apple. The article says the Cupertino, California-based company has met resistance from makers in Taiwan's supply chain to lower their quotes for parts and components for the “iPhone 7.”

Digitimes says Apple has asked downstream part and component suppliers, excluding Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) and Largan Precision, to reduce their quotes for iPhone 7 devices by as much as 20% even though order volumes for new phones are reportedly 30% lower than those placed a year earlier.

However, downstream suppliers, notably Advanced Semiconductor Engineering (ASE) and associated companies under the Foxconn Group, have replied Apple that they couldn’t accept orders without reasonable profits.

With the assembly plant as the focus of the supply chain, upstream...

Apple drops ‘Store’ from Apple Store branding

Juli Clover, MacRumors:

Apple appears to be making a slight branding change to its retail business, dropping the “Store” moniker when referring to its Apple Store locations. Apple has already made the change online, and all of its store pages now refer to stores by names like “Apple Union Square” or “Apple Valley Fair” or “Apple The Grove,” instead of “Apple Store, Valley Fair” or “Apple Store, The Grove.”

It’s a change that appears to have started rolling out with the launch of the newer Apple Stores, like the Union Square location in San Francisco. Apple has always referred to that store as just Apple Union Square, and over the course of the last few days, the company has updated all of its retail store webpages to remove the “Store” branding. What was once “Apple Store, Fifth Avenue,” for example, is now just “Apple Fifth Avenue.”

This seems a logical path for Apple, adhering to their simplify-where-possible strategy and their adherence to minimalism. A bit...

Endless features new songs and takes place in the same warehouse where Ocean has been hosting a web stream. The new songs feature contributions from Jonny Greenwood, James Blake, and more.

Driverless cars: When coding decisions determine...

Andrew Leavitt:

Are you familiar with “The Trolley Problem?” It’s an ethical thought experiment with a central moral dilemma.

An observer must decide whether to switch a trolley track when either choice will result in negative consequences for innocent bystanders. If he intervenes more lives are saved [practical] but he has then taken an active role in who lives or dies [immoral]. If he leaves the switch alone he is moral but more lives are certainly lost. There is no unequivocal “right choice” – especially as the scenario becomes more complex.

Interesting post that touches on Aasimov’s three laws of robotics and MIT’s moral machine web experiment.

Australian banks can’t negotiate over Apple Pay — at...

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), Australia’s anti-trust regulator, says it won’t grant the country's three biggest banks interim approval to collectively negotiate with Apple Inc to install their own electronic payments applications on iPhones, reports Reuters.

Last month those banks, including the top lender, National Australia Bank, e lodged a joint application with anti-trust regulators seeking approval to collectively negotiate with Apple to install their own electronic payments applications on iPhones. 

Apple, which operates its Apple Pay mobile payment service, doesn’t allow third-party electronic payment apps to be installed on the smartphone. The banks are seeking to be able to negotiate jointly for access to Apple's phones without themselves being accused of violating anti-competition law.

The ACCC said that its decision not to...

Australia denies banks approval to jointly negotiate...

Reuters:

Australia’s anti-trust regulator on Friday said it would not grant the country’s three biggest banks interim approval to collectively negotiate with Apple Inc to install their own electronic payments applications on iPhones.

Australia’s three biggest banks, including the number one lender National Australia Bank (NAB), last month lodged a joint application seeking permission to negotiate as a bloc from the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC).

The ACCC said that its decision not to grant the banks the interim ruling was not indicative of whether the full ruling, expected in October, would be successful or not.

And:

The banks are seeking to be able to negotiate jointly for access to Apple’s phones without themselves being accused of violating anti-competition law....

iOS and Android Combined for Record 99% of...

Joe Rossignol, writing for MacRumors:

The latest numbers from research firm Gartner reveal that the smartphone industry continues to be a virtual two-horse race between iOS and Android. The operating systems combined for a record 99.1% worldwide market share in the second calendar quarter of 2016, compared to 96.8% in the year-ago period.

That’s amazing to me. Just a bit more than nine years ago, neither company (Apple for iOS, Google for Android) had a horse in this race. And now, everyone else is gone or, at best, window dressing.

Comment: As optical image stabilization seemingly...

Zac made the point yesterday that just because the iPhone 7 is sounding like a second S-year model, that doesn’t mean that mass-market buyers – ‘normals’ – won’t be wowed by it. Apple has an enviable ability to take relatively mainstream features and make them sound magical, and a report by French site NWE seems to make one rumored feature sound more likely.

While the dual-camera system slated for the larger iPhone 7 Plus is an obvious talking point, it’s also been suggested that the smaller model may get the optical image stabilisation (OIS) currently limited to the iPhone 6/6s Plus.

A claimed photo of the camera module for the 4.7-inch iPhone has four slots around it, similar to those...

Twitter: An update on our efforts to combat violent...

Twitter’s blog:

Earlier this year, we announced we had suspended more than 125,000 accounts since mid-2015 for violating our longtime prohibition on violent threats and the promotion of terrorism and shared the steps we are taking as a company to combat this content. Since that announcement, the world has witnessed a further wave of deadly, abhorrent terror attacks across the globe. We strongly condemn these acts and remain committed to eliminating the promotion of violence or terrorism on our platform.

While our work is not done, today we are announcing that we have suspended an additional 235,000 accounts for violating our policies related to promotion of terrorism in the six months since our February 2016 post. This brings our overall number of suspensions to 360,000 since the middle of 2015. As noted by numerous third parties, our efforts continue to drive meaningful results, including a significant shift in this type of activity off of Twitter.

Sprint, T-Mobile offer revamped data plans ahead of...

Say what you want about the open market, at least it spurs competition.

Following Wednesday’s announcement as to changes to its mobile plans, wireless carriers T-Mobile and Sprint have announced new “unlimited” plans of their own.

T-Mobile has replaced all its plans with a single one called T-Mobile One.

The Mobile One plan apparent offers the following:

It’s 100% unlimited and comes with unlimited talk and text and unlimited 4G LTE smartphone data – including unlimited standard definition video – all on America’s fastest 4G LTE network. And, it’s available at a great price: just $40 per line for a family of four.

The fine print has the $40 per line rate as being applicable only if you’re buying four lines for $160 a month. Otherwise,...

Rumor: Next-gen Apple Watch to feature GPS, other...

The next-gen Apple Watch may still be somewhat dependent on the iPhone.

Sources have stated that Apple is planning to launch a next-gen Apple Watch this fall with integrated GPS and improvements to health tracking.

Apple shipped its first watch in April 2015, hoping for a new blockbuster product amid slowing iPhone sales, which contribute almost 60 percent of revenue. While the company shipped 1.6 million watches from April to June, that was less than half as many as during the same period in 2015, according to IDC.

Since its inception, wireless network carriers have been urging Apple to create an Apple Watch variant that can connect to data networks without the aid of the iPhone, thereby untethering it. Apple had been in talks this year with...

Apple is said to have asked downstream part and component suppliers […] to reduce their quotes for iPhone 7 devices by as much as 20% even though order volumes for new phones are reportedly 30% lower than those placed a year earlier. Major downstream suppliers, notably Advanced Semiconductor Engineering (ASE) and associated companies under the Foxconn Group, have replied Apple that they could not be able to accept orders without reasonable profits at this time.

CrashPlan makes backing up easy, inexpensive

Be honest now: do you back up the data on your Mac? I know a LOT of folks who don't; they're asking for disaster. If you need a simple way to save your data — aside from or, better yet, in addition to Apple's Time Machine feature in Mac OS X — check out CrashPlan from Code 42.

It's a solid online backup service because it offers unlimited storage space (you read that right) and lets you upload files of any size. Setting up CrashPlan is a breeze and can be implemented in three easy steps.

Speaking of "three," Code 42 has three different ways of providing backup. You have the option to back up to local drives and computers, offsite drives and computers or online to CrashPlan Central. You can combine all three, which is what I recommend.

Code 42 addresses data security and privacy concerns by employing a multi-layered security model that includes transmission security, account security (access), password security, encryption security and secure messaging. On the...

You’ll get a charge out of these Ravpower products

Ravpower makes — as you might guess from the company’s name— charging and battery products. It’s released two that will be of interest to Mac users, especially those of us who own 12-inch MacBooks.

Ravpower’s $15.99 10400mAh Portable Power Bank boasts a 3.5A output that lets you quickly charge tablets and smartphones at the same time. I use it to charge my iPhone 6s Plus and 12.9-inch iPad Pro. The Portable Power Bank’s 2A input takes less time (almost 50%) to charge itself compared to traditional 1A chargers.

iSmart charging technology on both ports automatically detects and delivers the optimal charging current to match connected devices. For example, it delivers a 1A charging out for phones that have 1A charging input. The Portable Power Bank’s 10400 mAh capacity can, for example, charge an iPhone 6s Plus three to four times and an iPad mini once before you...

Australian banks are resisting adoption of Apple’s mobile payment solution (available in iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s), referring to hefty fees and loss of customer control.

Apple says that the banks are being anti-competitive by blocking the introduction of innovative payment technologies like Apple Pay. The banks want to force Apple to open up the NFC chip to third-party developers, which Apple says would cripple the security standards of its platform.

Is Donald Trump Actually Trying to Win?

Nate Silver, “Trump Is Doubling Down on a Losing Strategy”:

So it’s not surprising that Trump has undertaken a major shakeup
of his campaign, hiring Bannon and promoting the pollster
Kellyanne Conway. Campaign Chairman Paul Manafort has effectively
been demoted. But rather than make a much-expected “pivot” toward
general election voters — as Manafort had reportedly been pushing
for — the new plan is to “let Trump be Trump,” doubling down on
the strategies that Trump used to win the nomination, including an
emphasis on nationalism, populism and “brutal fights with
Clinton”. […]

If you trust the polls, this seems like a fundamental strategic
error. Trump is running worse than Mitt Romney among almost all
demographic groups; white men without a college degree are the
most prominent exception. But there aren’t...

The stripe on the band is modeled after the stripe running the length of the engineering hull. I love Star Trek stuff and thought this was awesome. It’s US$100, and is available now.

iOS and Android Combined For Record 99% of...

An anonymous reader writes: The research firm Gartner has crunched some numbers and found that Android and iOS accounted for a record 99.1% worldwide market share in the second calendar quarter of 2016, which is compared to 96.8% in the year-ago period. What some may view as even more shocking is that Android accounted for 86.2% of the market share in the second quarter, up from 82.2% a year ago. Meanwhile, iOS lost some ground as it dropped to 12.9% market share from 14.6% in the year-ago period. It's no surprise that Windows and BlackBerry have been losing market share. They dropped to 0.6% and 0.1% market share worldwide respectively. Just six years ago, BlackBerry and Symbian operating systems were industry leaders. Now, they're industry losers. Which third-party operating system has what it takes to take on the establishment?

Uber CEO talks about company’s self-driving car...

Travis Kalanick has to get Uber’s bet on self-driving cars right.

“It starts with understanding that the world is going to go self-driving and autonomous,” he told Business Insider in an interview.

“So if that’s happening, what would happen if we weren’t a part of that future? If we weren’t part of the autonomy thing? Then the future passes us by basically, in a very expeditious and efficient way.”

As much as I may not like autonomous cars, from a business perspective, it’s hard to argue with his reasoning.

Not one to shy away from the spotlight, Kanye West has announced that this weekend he’ll be opening up 21 pop shops around the world, some of which will be exclusively accepting Apple Pay thanks to a partnership with Square. Square’s contactless readers will be available in the U.S., Canada, and Australia so that customers can focus on paying for their items as quickly as possible. West claimed that the last pop-up shop had generated $2 million in sales in New York City alone, so a high revenue weekend like this could be great exposure for Square’s technology.

Uber to Begin Testing Self-Driving Cars in Pittsburgh

Max Chafkin, reporting for Bloomberg:

Near the end of 2014, Uber co-founder and Chief Executive Officer
Travis Kalanick flew to Pittsburgh on a mission: to hire dozens of
the world’s experts in autonomous vehicles. The city is home to
Carnegie Mellon University’s robotics department, which has
produced many of the biggest names in the newly hot field.

That’s a bit of a whitewashing. What happened is that Uber approached Carnegie Melon to create a “strategic partnership”. Uber’s strategy, it turned out, was to identify CMU’s best engineers and hire them away. As I wrote at the time, their “partnership” was like that between a fox and a henhouse.

The goal: to replace Uber’s more than 1 million human drivers with
robot drivers — as...

New ‘AnsweringMachine’ Cydia release adds enhanced...

As someone who used to be heavily into jailbreaking, I’ve seen quite a few interesting and noteworthy tweaks come across my desk. Coincidence or not, Apple has mirrored the functionality of several tweaks over the years, adopting them as stock iOS features.

Needless to say, after seven or eight years of jailbreaking, it takes a lot to impress me, but that’s exactly what developer Elias Limneos was able to do. In fact, his new tweak, entitled AnsweringMachine, looked so intriguing that it convinced me to jailbreak my iPhone just to take it for a test drive.

One feature of the tweak allows users to receive transcribed voicemails, similar to the Voicemail transcription feature in iOS 10. Have a look at our hands-on video to see it in action....

Uber on Thursday announced plans to begin testing semi-autonomous vehicles in Pittsburgh later this month. Its first partially self-driving Volvo XC90 vehicles reportedly will be assigned at random to customers who use the company's app. Each of the prototype cars will have an actual human on board to act as copilot and monitor the vehicle's performance from the driver's seat. The passengers who are provided transport in one of those vehicles reportedly will receive a free ride. Uber, which launched in 2014, has its headquarters in Pittsburgh.

There may come a day when your Apple Watch doesn't need to be tethered to your iPhone to work, but that day won't be soon. According to a new report from Bloomberg, Apple's plans to put cellular modems in the next version of the Apple Watch have been put on hold because of concerns about battery life. While Apple is still reportedly "studying lower-power cellular data chips" for inclusion in future generations, the next watch will still rely on your iPhone for its data connection.

That said, the report indicates that Apple does plan to ship GPS functionality in the new Apple Watch. This will be of particular ...

Roadblocks for new Apple Watch

The source of the delay is that current cellular chips consume too much battery life, reducing the product’s effectiveness and limiting user appeal, according to three of the people. Apple has begun studying lower-power cellular data chips for future smartwatch generations.

This is an incredibly difficult problem, but anything that negatively affects battery life will be a non-starter for a lot of users. Most days, I have plenty of battery life remaining when I go to bed, but I wouldn’t want to be in a situation where I was running out of power early in the day.

Store no more: Apple retail stores drop the ‘Store’...

Apple is making a slight branding change to its retail business, dropping the "Store" when referring to its Apple Store locations, according to MacRumors. Apple has already made the change online, and all of its store pages now refer to stores by names like "Apple Union Square" or "Apple Green Hills.”

MacRumors says it’s a change that appears to have started rolling out with the launch of the newer Apple stores such as the Union Square location (pictured) in San Francisco. Apple has always referred to that store as just Apple Union Square, and over the course of the last few days, the company has updated all of its retail store webpages to remove the "Store" branding, the article adds.

Apple has 488 retail stores in 21 countries and an online store available in 39 countries.

In July the Canalys research group forecast that 7.5 million smart watches with cellular connectivity — including a second generation Apple Watch — will ship in 2016, rising to 53.6 million in 2020. However, Apple “has hit roadblocks in making major changes that would connect its Watch to cellular networks and make it less dependent on the iPhone,” reports Bloomberg, quoting unnamed “people with knowledge of the matter.”

Apple has almost certainly planned to add cellular capabilities to the next-generation watch so that it doesn't require an accompanying iPhone. A Wall Street Journal report noted that the company “is working on adding cell-network connectivity and a faster processor to its next-generation Watch, according to people...

AT&T Mobile Share Advantage mimics T-Mobile,...

With AT&T’s Mobile Share Advantage, the telecom giant follows a new trend: Customers who switch to this new shared mobile plan (available August 21) will be spared bandwidth overage fees. Instead, the firm said, after available bandwidth is used up, its Mobile Share Advantage customers will be throttled to 128Kbps for the rest of the current billing cycle.

The Mobile Share plans pool bandwith among devices that can include smartphones, feature phones, tablets, gaming devices, wearables, laptops, hotspots, and other hardware. A monthly charge per device is paired with a charge for a tier of bandwidth. 

Why this matters: AT&T joins T-Mobile and Sprint among the big four U.S. carriers in shifting to throttling instead of causing customers to rack up fees at $10 per gigabyte above plan totals. That’s good news for consumers, though it’ll be interesting to see whether they’ll tolerate throttling or break down and buy more bandwidth, sending more...

Been to your local Apple Store lately? You probably noticed that it’s much more than a place that sells stuff. There are Geniuses there to help you with your Mac problems, and in the bigger stores, there are training sessions and youth programs. Mostly, people never buy a thing and just hang out, using the iPads, Macs, and the free internet access. Some people stay there all day, and that’s fine with Apple, as long as you don’t stink up the joint.

The Apple Store is much more than a store, and that’s probably why Apple decided to drop the “Store” from the name, according to a report by MacRumors. Now it’s just “Apple,” plus the name of the location to differentiate each store. For example, in Orlando, Florida, the two Apple stores are known as...

Twitter adds a quality filter setting

Last year we began testing a quality filter setting and we’re now rolling out a feature for everyone. When turned on, the filter can improve the quality of Tweets you see by using a variety of signals, such as account origin and behavior. Turning it on filters lower-quality content, like duplicate Tweets or content that appears to be automated, from your notifications and other parts of your Twitter experience. It does not filter content from people you follow or accounts you’ve recently interacted with – and depending on your preferences, you can turn it on or off in your notifications settings.

Twitter certainly has a lot of work to do, but anything that can help my feed is welcome.
