Apple CEO Tim Cook to speak at WSJDLive conference...

Apple CEO Tim Cook is set to appear at a new technology conference hosted by The Wall Street Journal this October called WSJDLive. 

Apple executives including Steve Jobs have appeared at past “D” conferences hosted by former WSJ employees Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher. WSJDLive appears to be a continuation of sorts of those conferences, although Mossberg and Swisher since left to form Recode.net and have also hosted Apple executives at the site’s new “Code Conference” in May.

Joan Rivers iPhone 6 product placement goes out to...

Apparently whoever runs Instagram and Facebook feeds for the recently deceased Joan Rivers forgot to unschedule social media posts promoting the iPhone 6- that one that was just released today, weeks after Rivers died on September 4th. The message below, which we can only speculate might have been the result of Apple’s efforts to get the device in the hands of celebrities, appeared on Instagram and Facebook accounts for Rivers before being promptly removed earlier today (via BusinessInsider):

“This badass is being replaced by an iPhone 6 (not the fat one). I got this one in 2010 and, after 4 years, my only complaint is that apps are now designed for bigger screens, and the battery is getting tired. Never had a case for it, since it was most beautiful on its own. Great achievement in design. Great product. #...

New iPhone 6 Plus shipments to take several weeks

If you didn't preorder an iPhone 6 Plus, prepare for a lengthy wait.

Several wireless carriers and Apple's online store are reporting delays of several weeks to two months for the larger of the two new iPhones.

T-Mobile, for example, got out the news this morning it wouldn't have any supplies of the iPhone 6 Plus in store, but would be able to honor all preorders.  As a perk, the company will throw in free shipping to anyone who comes in to a T-Mobile store to order one from from today through the weekend, according to a company representative.

The wait times are fairly lengthy with Verizon as well, with the company's web site displaying a shipping date of October 24 for an iPhone 6 Plus order. Sprint did not specify a timeline, only that shipping was delayed. Early November was the earliest AT&T could promise a device.

SSDs for metadata

I talked with someone who added some Intel SD3700s to a Promise x30. They used them for metadata on a volume with an extremely diverse set of data (big and small), but primarily so they could get better performance for the millions of tiny files they were serving. The person I spoke with said they actually worked with Promise to make sure drive support was included in the latest firmware. Our ActiveRAIDs are out of warranty now, but I'd still like to get a couple more years out of them.

Tim Cook visits Palo Alto Apple Store line to launch...

What’s an even bigger deal for Apple fans than getting the iPhone 6 on launch day? Taking a selfie with Apple CEO Tim Cook.

The chief executive walked the line of several hundred people outside the company’s Palo Alto, California, store shortly before the new phone went on sale at 8 a.m. Friday, stopping to shake hands, thank customers and pose for many, many selfies.

Cook didn’t have to travel far to get to the store. He lives just a few blocks away in the leafy Silicon Valley town. Steve Jobs lived nearby too and used to turn up at the store to check the atmosphere on launch day, but perhaps never shook as many hands and posed for as many pictures as Cook did.

Apple fans were out early in full force in Boston and New York Friday morning to buy the larger screen iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.

The 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus have some of the “the biggest advancements in iPhone history,” Apple said when it announced the new smartphones last week. But larger screens are what drew some to stand in lines outside stores on a chilly morning in both cities.

At Apple’s Fifth Avenue store in New York the line, which snaked around a city block, started to form on Aug. 31, before the smartphones were announced. The New York City Police Department barricaded some parts of the block to control the crowd.

Google just updated its Google Search app for iOS and in the process renamed it to simply “Google”, which seems to make a bit more sense considering the app integrates Google Now features and much beyond just search. Also in today’s update: new features for Chromecast and additional Google Now cards.

For Chromecast users, the app now allows users to ask “What’s on Chromecast?” and jump right into the Chromecast app to begin casting content to a TV. The update also includes new Google Now cards that Google says offer “personalized TV recommendations and traffic information.”

Version 4.2.0 of the Google app is available on the App Store now.

Josh Centers ponders the backlash against Apple’s free gift of a U2 album and concludes that it could have been handled far better, though perhaps that wouldn’t have served the promotional needs of either U2 or Apple.

SACOM protests labor abuses during Hong Kong iPhone...

The launch of the iPhone 6 at Apple's Hong Kong store has been tumultuous, accounts say. Police were brought in to disperse people waiting in line without reservations, and a regional activist group -- Students and Scholars Against Corporate Misbehaviour -- took advantage of the event to protest what it says are ongoing abuses by Apple suppliers. The group unfurled a large banner over the store reading "iSlave 6, Harsher than harsher, Still made in sweatshops," and published a new document about a nearly year-long investigation into one of Apple's most important suppliers, Pegatron....

iPhone 6 launches to enthusiastic crowds

At long last, the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus handsets are out.

Down at the Apple Store location on University Avenue in Palo Alto, the line attendees, led by Abdul Karim of Fremont, California, were more than ready. Karim, who had set up a lawn chair outside the Apple Store early Tuesday afternoon, appeared relaxed and ready the day before the iPhone 6 launch, spending time camping out in the line with his brother, Faz.


First in line attendee Abdul Karim at the Apple Store iPhone 6 launch in Palo Alto.

“We could have pre-ordered it, but it’s just time bonding with my brother, my cousin’s here with me too, so we’re having fun just camping out together,” said Karim. “Apple’s been fantastic. They’ve been telling us ‘if you need anything, water, umbrellas, whatever, just request it.’ Other than that, it’s Palo Alto, it’s a nice area, it’s fun.”

Keylogger

Some have pointed out that password fields are excluded from using an alternative keyboard. This tells me that even Apple is a bit concerned about the consequences of logging key strokes. I’m not sure about everyone else, but I generally use a password to protect all of the other things I write with my keyboard. If every other keystroke is logged and transmitted to a server, my password becomes far less relevant.

This is worrisome.

It’s Friday, September 19. Do you know where your new iPhone 6 or 6 Plus is? Hopefully, it’s already on the back of that UPS truck, making the rounds, and you’re sitting at home, anxiously waiting for it to show up at your door. Or perhaps your phone isn’t in the first batch of preorders, but will be on its way within the next week or two.

Squiff writes U2 and Apple are apparently collaborating on a new, "interactive format for music," due to launch in "about 18 months." (A direct interview is available at Time, but paywalled.) Bono said the new tech "can't be pirated" and will re-imagine the role of album artwork. Marco Arment has some suitably skeptical commentary: "Full albums are as interesting to most people today as magazines. Single songs and single articles killed their respective larger containers. ... This alleged new format will cost a fortune to produce: people have to take the photos, design the interactions, build the animations, and make the deals with Apple. Bono’s talking point about helping smaller bands is ridiculous ... There's nothing Apple or Bono can do to make people care enough about glorified liner notes. People care about music and convenience, period. As for “music that can’t be pirated”, I ask again, what decade is this? That ship has not only sailed long ago, but has circled the world...

The invention allows doctors to carry around in their pockets what used to require a visit to the optometrist’s office.

This week, we spoke with Smart Vision Labs co-founder Marc Albanese. Check out our interview and demo in the video below.

On a recent trip to Haiti, Marc and his team were able to set up a field optometrist’s office where they were able to diagnose eye prescriptions in around one ...

Inside Shenzen's Grey-Market iPhone Mall

jfruh writes Despite being largely manufactured in China, iPhones are still too expensive for most Chinese to afford — new ones, anyway. That's why thousands come to a bustling marketplace in Shenzen that specializes in older grey-market iPhones. Many of them are damaged phones that have been refurbished by enterprising merchants. From the story: "Reselling iPhones can be a lucrative business. The Shenzen mall, called Open World Communication City, is based in the Huaqiangbei district, which attracts buyers from around the world who come here to shop for cheap devices and components. But some of the business is shady. Earlier this year, a person who claimed to have worked at the mall posted pictures online showing how dealers can refurbish an iPhone 5 to make it look like an 5s."

iOS 8: Changing Safari’s Default Search Provider to...

As much as I love Google's ability to find exactly what I want, I've grown concerned about the amount of data they collect from my searches. You've probably experienced that lovely phenomenon of casually searching for a product and then seeing ads for that same product all over the 'net. Luckily for those concerned about such things, there's DuckDuckGo, a search engine that makes privacy its number one concern. Even more luckily, Apple's added it to iOS 8's list of search providers.

iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus: Which is the perfect...

You’ve read the review. You’re ready to upgrade. But which iPhone should you get—the big one or the really big one? Since Apple’s never made a phone with a screen larger than 4 inches, dedicated fans might not have even handled a huge-screened monster phone like the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus. How do you know which is the right size for you?

It’s completely fine to sit out Friday’s on-sale date until you get a chance to hold both phones for yourself—the decision is highly subjective, after all. We weigh in below, and we also quizzed some of our best friends at Greenbot and PCWorld about the big Android and Windows phones they’ve been using day in and day out for over a year. What wisdom do they have for us on the perfect screen size for a phone?

iPhone 6 teardown reveals larger 1810 mAh battery,...



With the iPhone 6 Plus teardown complete, iFixit has commenced work on disassembling the iPhone 6. Unsurprisingly, the internals are similar to that of the 6 Plus, but adjusted to fit in a smaller space. Whereas the 6 Plus can contain a humongous 2915 mAH battery, the iPhone 6 has a 1810 mAH rated battery. This is still an improvement over the ~1500 mAh component in the iPhone 5s, but is roughly inline with relative...

First look: iPhone 6, 6 Plus

The wait is finally over as the Apple iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus finally start landing in the hands of customers. As has been suggested, the iPhone 6 Plus is indeed in relatively short supply at launch with greater stock availability of the new 4.7-inch model. We have got our hands on a 64GB iPhone 6 in Space Grey and a 16GB iPhone 6 Plus in Silver, and both are stunning devices to behold. So how are they shaping up in our first few hours with them?...

Samsung takes swipe at iPhone 6 Plus in snarky web...

If you haven’t seen it yet, take a look at the web video that Samsung posted on its YouTube channel. The video trolls Apple for coming out with a 5.5-inch iPhone (the fabled iPhone 6 Plus) two years after it released the Galaxy Note 2 in 2012.

The video highlights early negative reviews of the Galaxy Note (the WSJ said it “looks like you’re talking into a piece of toast,” Mashable called the Note “an unwieldy beast”). It then shows a recent BGR post from September 9, 2014 titled “...

First iPhone 6 Sold in Perth Dropped by Kid During...

The young man who bought the first iPhone 6 in Perth, Australia-where the iPhone 6 has already gone on sale-dropped it during a local TV news interview. The reporter got him to open the box for the cameras, but when he did, the iPhone slipped out and followed the gravity train straight down onto the concrete. There are no details-yet-on what exactly happened to the device, but the young man is seen picking at the screen before the cameras stop. Holy smokes, but do I feel for this kid. If it broke, I hope Apple replaces it for him, if the retail store didn't already do it on the spot. [Via Macworld tweet.]

What to do with your old iPhone

After a week and a half of anticipation, Friday is the day you can finally get your hands on an iPhone 6 or 6 Plus—well, if you preordered or you don't mind waiting in line, anyway. But choosing a screen size isn't the only decision you have to make: What are you gonna do with your old phone?

You’ve got plenty of options. Here are a few worth considering.

Keep it

Why not turn that old iPhone into a slightly used, slightly-thicker iPod touch? That old phone of yours can still connect to Wi-Fi networks and run iOS apps, and if it’s an iPhone 4s or later, it’ll upgrade to the forthcoming iOS 8 operating system just like your new phone will. What’s more, we’ve found that old phones make fun hand-me-downs...

The biggest discovery is the confirmation that the iPhone 6 Plus, a 5.5-inch version of the iPhone 6, uses a 2915mAh battery -- twice the capacity of the one found in the iPhone 5s -- to power the larger screen and yet provide better runtime life....

iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus take a beating in first...

Youtuber PhoneBuff has managed to get his hands on an iPhone 6 and 6 Plus at an Apple Store in Australia. In the video below, PhoneBuff puts these two devices through the ultimate torture test. Each device is dropped once on its back, on its side, and its face.

As you would imagine, eventually both devices met their maker. The iPhone 6 held strong throughout the side and back drop test and only was completely destroyed when being dropped on its face.

With the iPhone 6 Plus, the destruction came one drop earlier with a massive shatter to the screen when dropped on its side. This probably has to do with the weight distribution on the larger iPhone model, but either way if you drop an iPhone enough it’ll...

The commercials are annoying, but the product is great: Nuance's Dragon Dictate for Mac, version 4. This voice recognition software allows you to transcribe, write, and edit on your Mac with your voice. You know it's good, because Apple licenses the underlying technology for Siri. Dragon Dictate for Mac 4 works with most Mac apps, and it works with both Mountain Lion and Mavericks. it's regularly $199.99, but through our deal, you can get it for half that, $99.99.

Opera offers an interesting alternative to the Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox Web browsers, but its recent Linux release leaves some room for improvement. Opera previously enjoyed a reputation as the go-to browser of choice for mobile environments. However, Opera Software, the developer, ignored Linux users for quite a long while until now. Opera's Version 12.16 is a very usable release -- but it is not without drawbacks.
Perhaps its biggest accomplishment is creating a library of Firefox-like extensions.

Apple's "Warrant Canary" Has Died

HughPickens.com writes When Apple published its first Transparency Report on government activity in late 2013, the document contained an important footnote that stated: "Apple has never received an order under Section 215 of the USA Patriot Act. We would expect to challenge such an order if served on us." Now Jeff John Roberts writes at Gigaom that Apple's warrant canary has disappeared. A review of the company's last two Transparency Reports, covering the second half of 2013 and the first six months of 2014, shows that the "canary" language is no longer there suggesting that Apple is now part of FISA or PRISM proceedings. Warrant canaries are a tool used by companies and publishers to signify to their users that, so far, they have not been subject to a given type of law enforcement request such as a secret subpoena. If the canary disappears, then it is likely the situation has changed — and the company has been subject to such request. This may also give some insight into Apple's...
