Apple Cuts Affiliate Commissions on Apps and In-App...

From a report on Mac Stories: Today, Apple announced that it is reducing the commissions it pays on apps and In-App Purchases from 7 percent to 2.5 percent effective May 1st. The iTunes Affiliate Program pays a commission from Apple's portion of the sale of apps and other media when a purchase is made with a link that contains the affiliate credentials of a member of the program. Anyone can join, but the Affiliate Program is used heavily by websites that cover media sold by Apple and app developers.

Apple’s Next Mac Pro Will Require a Change in Design...

Apple’s design philosophy for consumer Macs has been that of simplicity, indeed minimalism. Approachable and beautiful. But even the 2008-2012 Mac Pro, designed in the Steve Jobs era, understood the needs of technical and creative professionals. Now that Apple has had time to digest what went wrong with the 2013 Mac Pro, it’s time, according to Marco Arment, to change the design thinking from that of “no!” to that of “yes!”  Versatility should rule. It’s all on page 2 of Friday’s Particle Debris.

Lauren Goode is both a Senior Editor at The Verge and the co-host of the podcast Too Embarrassed to Ask. Lauren didn’t start out as a technical person. In high school, she was into competitive basketball and volleyball. But the seeds were evident as she became an expert with a camcorder.

That’s where her passion for video technology flourished. Later, at the WSJ and AllThingsD Walt Mossberg was her mentor.

Apple cuts affiliate commissions on apps and in-app...

While the percentage remains at 7% for movies, music, and books, this does nothing but hurt small publishers, some of who rely on these revenues from Apple’s affiliate program. It means some sites may not be able to continue or will be forced to increase the number of affiliate links to make up the difference. Apple still takes their 30% from developers (affiliate revenues came out of Apple’s share), so this means Apple makes more money and users of affiliate links make significantly less.

Apple reduces affiliate commissions for apps and in-...

Apple today sent out an email to all affiliates, those people who "advertise" apps and other content on websites or in apps in order to earn commissions on each sale. In the past, commissions for all types of content -- apps, music, movies, books and TV -- have been set at 7%. Now Apple has announced that the commission rate for app and in-app content sales will be dropping to 2.5% effective May 1, 2017.

Whether the change is designed to make more money for Apple or possibly lower Apple's "take" from apps in the App Store, it's going to affect organizations like Apple World Today that make a bit of money on every link to the App Store that results in a sale. 

Apple also announced that they're making it easier for people and organizations to become affiliate partners with a new Getting Started Guide

iPhone 8 rumor roundup

For a smartphone that's not even supposed to ship until at least September, the rumors about the  iPhone 8 (AKA iPhone Edition, iPhone X, iPhone Pro...) are certainly filling the blogosphere this morning. Here's a quick roundup of all we've heard in the past few days:

Touch ID will be embedded in the OLED display

Many of the rumors surrounding the iPhone 8 have recently been filled with breathless exclamations about how the device can't possibly ship on time and have Touch ID embedded in the OLED display. Some rumors have had the Touch ID sensor moving to the back of the device, while others think that Touch ID will disappear altogether on the new phone with an iris scanner and facial recognition taking its place. 

Now a dummy iPhone 8 allegedly obtained from a Foxconn facility shows no sign of the familiar Home button with integrated Touch ID fingerprint reader, pointing to "proof" that Apple engineers have indeed managed to get a...

If Winmail.dat files are a reoccurring problem, Letter Opener for macOS Mail is the solution. Installed into Mail it opens and displays the files directly inside Apples Mail application, so the user can forget about Winmail.dat files entirely.

Staples is selling a color laser printer for $75

Printers aren’t the most exciting technology out there, but they’re like toothbrushes: Everybody needs one, even in 2017. And until Saturday—or supplies sell out—you can get a great deal on a Dell C17690nw color laser printer at Staples, which is offering it for $75. That’s a much better price than you’ll find elsewhere, as Dell lists this printer for $200 and Newegg has it for $150.

Even though this laser printer is color, don’t expect it to do a great job on photos. The appeal of a laser printer is that it creates sharp, crisp text with some basic visual elements. If you need a printer for photos, this device is not for you.

Kalanick had directed Uber's developers to break Apple's App Store rules—he wanted the Uber app to collect unique hardware data about every iPhone it was installed on, something Apple's App Store rules doesn't allow. To obscure this from Apple's App Review team, Kalanick asked his...

The iPhone Model's Impending Obsolescence


Smartphones are on their way out. VCRs gave way to DVD players, which in turn have given way to streaming services. Brick cellphones evolved into flip phones, which were swapped out for two-way pager phones and then wiped out by the iPhone model. Tape players gave way to the Walkman CD player, which gave way to the iPod, which also ended up in the iPhone model. I think we soon will see another big industry shift, but some key elements are missing, so I don't want anyone to think that your smartphone will be obsolete this year.

How Uber ran afoul of Apple's privacy rules

In 2015, Uber almost got itself kicked out of the iOS App Store.

Apple CEO Tim Cook brought Uber CEO Travis Kalanick into the company’s Cupertino offices and laid down the law, the New York Times reported.

So what exactly did Uber do to land itself in hot water with Apple? The original NYT report initially said the company was tracking iPhones, but it has since been clarified to describe Uber’s actions as “identifying and tagging iPhones even after its app has been deleted and the devices erased.” The reason Uber did that, the company said, was to prevent phone thieves in China from creating Uber accounts and requesting rides before wiping the devices and doing so again and again.

Update to CloudMounter adds encryption locked by a...

Many Mac users find that storing part or all of our data on cloud services is a great way to extend the capabilities of our computers, but sometimes it's a bit difficult to get data in and out of services like Google Drive, Box, Amazon S3, Microsoft OneDrive and even FTP or WebDAV servers. Eltima Software's CloudMounter for macOS (US$29.99) takes care of adding all of these services as mountable "drives" in the macOS Finder, and today the app was updated to provide data encryption as well as a way to ensure that only your instance of CloudMounter can access your data.

With the new update, all data stored "in the cloud" or on remote servers is encrypted with a single master password. Anyone attempting to access the data from a different Mac or through another app sees nothing but encrypted, garbled data. CloudMounter is different from native clients that are available for many cloud services in that it does not...

Apple Maps ajoute les itinéraires de transport en...

It's not April 1st, but we thought it would be fun to use a headline in French for this story. Apple Maps has added transit directions for Paris, France. The apps -- for both iOS and macOS -- gained the public transit info this weekend, including both the city's Metro subway and above-ground train lines like the RER and Transilien networks. 

Station entrances are marked clearly, and a tap on any stations shows all connecting lines and information on pending departures. In addition to the train systems, Paris transit directions include buses, Autolib car sharing, and Velib bike sharing.

Comment: With the iPhone 8, Apple appears to be...

Growing evidence that the iPhone 8 may go on sale significantly later than the usual September timeframe speaks volumes about the very different approach Apple is taking to this year’s flagship model. It is breaking not just one, but two of the cardinal rules in the How To Be Apple manual.

Rule 1 is that the company avoids ‘bleeding edge’ technology. When new tech rolls around, the company watches and waits while other manufacturers do the trial-and-error bit. Apple launches only when it is satisfied that the tech is stable and that it has figured out the optimal way to employ it.

We saw this with the iPod. The first portable media player was invented in 1979, and the first actual mp3 player went on sale in 1998. Apple waited until 2001 to release the iPod. The first...

New AI copies anyone’s voice

Lyrebird:

Lyrebird will offer an API to copy the voice of anyone. It will need as little as one minute of audio recording of a speaker to compute a unique key defining her/his voice. This key will then allow to generate anything from its corresponding voice. The API will be robust enough to learn from noisy recordings.

This is fascinating and scary. The technology is far from perfect, but I can definitely see them getting to “close enough to fool you” pretty quickly.

Apple hire of plug-in developer shows AR/VR and Pro...

Amidst persistent stories about Apple developing an augmented reality headset of some sort and recent moves to shore up the company's standing with creative professionals, the company has recently hired a developer well-known for writing Final Cut Pro plug-ins. Tim Dashwood, best known for his 360VR Toolbox plugin, has joined Apple as reported by FCP.co

The 360VR Toolbox assisted creatives in making 3D videos, and sold for almost $1,000. The good news for creatives is that they're now able to download the app and other software from Dashwood's company for free; the bad news is that continued development of 360VR Toolbox will most likely cease.

However, having a developer of Dashwood's stature within a company that is focusing on the AR/VR markets can only be a positive move for the...

External Link: Apple Acknowledges Weird “...

If you subscribe to iCloud storage or Apple Music, you may have received an odd email message from Apple saying that your subscription was discontinued last week. There was speculation at the time that the messages were sent by mistake due to a server hiccup, and that now seems likely. A few days later, Apple apologized to affected users, acknowledged that it had sent the messages in error, and confirmed that no changes to iCloud storage or Apple Music subscriptions were made. Mistakes happen, what matter is that Apple took responsibility for it.

Apple Maps gets transit mode for Paris

TechCrunch:

Apple is finally adding transit options to its Maps app for the city of Paris. Starting today, you can use Apple Maps to calculate itineraries using public transportation.

You’ll find subway, RER and bus lines, and even Transilien lines. Just like in Google Maps, you can look around the map with a new subway layer or you can calculate an itinerary from A to B. If you tap on a station, you can see all the lines leaving this station as well as real time information about the next departures.

Finally, you’ll also find Autolib car sharing stations as well as Vélib bike sharing stations. Unfortunately, it doesn’t say if there are bikes or spaces available.

Surprised that this took so long, but glad the data is finally available.

Recently located documents show Apple places...

A recent discovery from Apple’s Environmental Responsibility Report revealed that Apple, which recently stated that one of its goals was to make its iPhones and computers out of recycled materials, has ordered recyclers to shred iPhones and MacBooks upon receiving them.

This stands in contrast to an environmentally friendly action that could be undertaken, which would be to salvage everything possible from the devices.

After sorting, the materials are sold and used for production stock in new products.

“Materials are manually and mechanically disassembled and shredded into commodity-sized fractions of metals, plastics, and glass,” John Yeider, Apple’s recycling program manager, wrote under a heading called “Takeback Program Report” in a 2013 report to Michigan Department of Environmental Quality. “All hard drives are shredded in confetti-sized pieces. The pieces are then sorted into commodities grade materials. After sorting, the materials are sold and used...

Unusually for me, there aren’t many words in this drone diary – mostly I’m going to let the video do the talking!

When I reviewed the Litchi app last time – an app that lets the drone fly completely autonomously on a pre-programmed path – I mentioned a plan I had in mind for a future project at that tumbledown castle.

The plan was to take a dancer there and shoot a dance routine from the air in a beautiful setting. This required the cooperation of the weather, but it all came together earlier this month. It was a lot of fun, and I think the result really shows the value of a video camera you’re able to position exactly where you want it – whether up high or down low …

External Link: Tim Cook Dressed Down Uber for Spying...

Ride-sharing company Uber has had a rough 2017 so far, getting caught in one sleazy business practice after another. But Mike Isaac’s report in the New York Times may be the last straw for many Apple users. It turns out that Uber was using its popular app to secretly identify and track iPhones, even after the app had been deleted and the phone erased. Uber went so far as to hide that code for anyone inside a geofence surrounding Apple’s headquarters. In early 2015, Apple CEO Tim Cook summoned Uber CEO Travis Kalanick to his office to order him to stop. Uber did, but as you’ll read in this lengthy biography of Uber founder and CEO Travis Kalanick, there have been plenty of other shenanigans since.

Tim Cook once threatened to remove Uber from the App...

It’s not always the best idea to get on Apple’s bad side.

In 2015, Apple CEO apparently scolded Uber Chief Executive Travis Kalanick during a face-to-face meeting for tweaking coding to track iPhones even after users deleted the Uber app. “So, I’ve heard you’ve been breaking some of our rules,” Cook said, according to the New York Times, as he told Kalanick to knock it off or Uber would be banned from the App Store — a prospect that would have been disastrous for Uber.

Per the report, Kalanick “was shaken” by Cook’s scolding and agreed to stop tracking the phones.

The practice began in 2014 when Uber drivers in China attempted to game the system in order to appear they were getting more riders and thus higher wages. Drivers would buy iPhones on the black market, wipe their memory and create new “customer” accounts., then repeat the process.

As a result, Uber devised a trick to counter the memory wipes, leaving a digital “fingerprint” on the phone that...

KGI: iPhone 8 mass production delayed to October/...

We’ve been hearing several reports that the launch of the iPhone 8 could be delayed compared to previous years. Reputable Apple analyst KGI Ming-Chi Kuo has also weighed in today, reporting that mass production of the OLED iPhone will likely be pushed back to October/November, instead of the normal August/September timeframe for new iPhone launches.

KGI says the reason for the production difficulties is that the new iPhone 8 includes several major cutting-edge components that Apple has custom-ordered. The analyst still expects the iterative ‘7S’ models to launch on the normal schedule …

Here’s a probable explanation of what Uber was...

We learned yesterday that Tim Cook almost pulled Uber from the App Store over the way it was tracking iPhones and tricking Apple engineers. Uber had seemingly found a way to ‘fingerprint’ individual iPhones even after the app was removed, and had taken steps to try to hide this behavior from Apple – one of many questionable business practices the ride hailing firm has made in recent years.

Mr. Kalanick told his engineers to “geofence” Apple’s headquarters in Cupertino, Calif., a way to digitally identify people reviewing Uber’s software in a specific location. Uber would then obfuscate its code from people within that geofenced area.

Tractica: mobile AR markets to reach 1.9 billion...

Apple is almost certainly planning to enter the augmented reality (AR) market, and now is a good time. Between 2008 and 2015, augmented reality (AR) was a technology gimmick looking for a market.  

Innovators struggled with technical limitations, hype for smart glasses, and weak use cases. However, starting in mid-2015, the market began a period of recalibration. For mobile AR, the most significant developments since 2015 have been solid thinking about how to leverage AR to produce meaningful end user benefits, the advancement of computer vision, and the integration of artificial intelligence (AI).

According to a new report from Tractica, the expanding use cases for mobile AR will lead to growth from 342.8 million unique monthly active users (MAUs) globally in 2016 to nearly 1.9 billion MAUs by 2022.  During this period, the market intelligence firm forecasts that worldwide mobile AR revenue will rise from $749.0...

On Uber’s ‘Identifying and Tagging’ of iPhones

Mike Isaac’s profile of Uber CEO Travis Kalanick for The New York Times contains an accusation that, on its face, sounds outrageous:

For months, Mr. Kalanick had pulled a fast one on Apple by
directing his employees to help camouflage the ride-hailing app
from Apple’s engineers. The reason? So Apple would not find out
that Uber had been secretly identifying and tagging iPhones even
after its app had been deleted and the devices erased — a fraud
detection maneuver that violated Apple’s privacy guidelines.

But Apple was on to the deception, and when Mr. Kalanick arrived
at the midafternoon meeting sporting his favorite pair of bright
red sneakers and hot-pink socks, Mr. Cook was prepared. “So, I’ve
heard you’ve been breaking some of our rules,” Mr. Cook said in
his calm, Southern tone. Stop the...
