External Link: Unrelated Supreme Court Decision...

Since the 1990s, the Eastern District of Texas has been the preferred hunting ground for patent trolls. Judges in that district have been friendly to those who hold patents they never intend to use outside of litigation, so nearly 45 percent of patent infringement suits were filed there in 2015. But thanks to a unanimous Supreme Court ruling, the Eastern District of Texas’s time in the patent litigation limelight may be coming to an end. In TC Heartland v. Kraft Foods Group Brands, the Supreme Court ruled that defendants should face patent litigation in the state in which they’re incorporated. For instance, if you wanted to sue Apple or many other tech companies for patent infringement, you’d have to do so in California. Courts in other states won’t be as friendly to patent trolls, so this seemingly unrelated Supreme Court decision may have the side effect of reducing frivolous patent lawsuits.

Feature Request: iPad Workouts Dashboard for Apple...

I sometimes use my iPad at the gym to watch videos or read iBooks to pass time while exercising with the elliptical or treadmill. The tablet form factor is sleek and doesn’t draw attention to itself, and the iPad usually lays over whatever screen the gym equipment offers.

This works well because I usually ignore the heart rate trackers and progress indicators on exercise equipment and just rely on my Apple Watch for workout data. I glance at my wrist to check my progress and view metrics while using the iPad for entertainment.

Over the weekend I used a hotel gym that offered exercise machines with large screens and an easy-to-use interface, however, that made me think of how the iPad could be used for more…

Review: Mytek Brooklyn Digital-to-Analog Converter

Some years ago, the electronics market could be cleanly divided into "professional" and "consumer" gear. Consumer devices were cheaper and prettier, but their pro counterparts did more and were more reliable. Consumers then started to develop a taste for pro-level gadgets, regardless of whether they "needed" the extra power. Manufacturers responded by creating a new class of device — the "prosumer" model — which has grown in popularity to the point that nobody really questions whether high school kids "need" Macbook Pros. The Brooklyn DAC from MyTek is a little like the Macbook Pro in that it is well-designed, feature-packed, beautiful, and expensive. We think it's awesome.

‘The Spy Who Loved Me’

Chris Murphy, writing for CNN back in 2013 on the “greatest James Bond scene of all time”:

Despite this wealth of choice, a series of Bond experts, and one
of the film’s legendary producers, are in no doubt as to which
scene should be anointed the best ever.

And given the recurring role that skiing has played throughout the
life of Bond, it should comes as no surprise our panel’s chosen
encounter occurs on the slopes. “I would argue the most iconic
sequence is in ‘The Spy Who Loved Me’, when Bond shot straight off
the edge of a cliff at Baffin Island in Canada,” Ajay Chowdhury,
editor of the James Bond International Fan Club, told CNN.

“We saw him fall and fall, and when the Union Jack parachute
opened up and the theme tune kicked in, the world cheered.

We’ve been hearing a lot about how Google Home and Amazon Echo can control our smart appliances and devices, but for many of us, they’re still out of reach. Spending a couple hundred dollars on smart light bulbs or thousands on a new oven aren't exactly impulse buys, especially if we’re just buying them to try out voice control.

But now there’s a much cheaper alternative for smart home newbies. Thanks to IKEA, just about anyone can install smart lighting in their homes and manage them with Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa, and Siri. The Swedish furniture company announced in a press release that you will soon be able to control its affordable line of smart lights with the smart speakers and...

IKEA is one of those places that even people who hate to shop love to go to. The stores are mammoth, full of home decorating goodies you didn't even know you needed until you got to there, and all at pretty reasonable prices. Earlier this year IKEA announced a collection of smart lights named (in the usual IKEA manner) TRÅDFRI. Now the company has announced that HomeKit support is on the way for those lights.

As translated from the Swedish press release: 

“IKEA smart lighting is a Plug & Play solution, which means that no new electrical wiring and no electrician are needed. All it takes is replacing a light source with a TRÅDFRI LED light source. With a remote control or TRÅDFRI app, homeowners can design their own lighting by dimming the light switch from warm to cool shades in...

Nokia Uses Lawsuit To Make Apple Its Friend

Apple has settled a patent dispute with Finnish telecom equipment maker Nokia and agreed to buy more of its network products and services. The deal means Nokia will get bigger royalties from Apple for using its mobile phone patents, helping offset the impact of waning demand for its mobile network hardware. Nokia's shares were up by seven percent following the announcement. WSJ puts things into perspective: Nokia's deal with Apple follows a highly unusual playbook: using a lawsuit to win business from your adversary (could be paywalled). When the first iPhone was unveiled a decade ago, Apple became a major competitor to the Finnish group, which was then the world's leading mobile-phone maker. As Nokia's business dwindled, the companies became legal antagonists. Now they are set to become business partners. The settlement announced Tuesday involves Apple paying Nokia a lump sum plus royalties for each device it sells using Nokia's technology. This is broadly the same kind of...

Welcome to AWT TV, a weekly show featuring Steve Sande, Dennis Sellers and Marty Edwards of Apple World Today. Each week we'll discuss what's happened in the world of Apple, talk about new apps and accessories, maybe even have a demonstration or two of the latest software.

Apple's updated Android 'Switch'...

Apple and Android may forever be locked in a fight for mobile domination, but they take very different approaches to their quest for market share. On the one hand, there are more than 2 billion active Android devices in use around the world. On the other, Apple makes gobs of money from selling just a handful of handsets.

But like the PC wars of the 90s, Apple isn’t content with such a slim slice of the market. While it has had a Move to iOS app in the Play Store for a while now, Apple is now taking the fight directly to Android users with a new campaign devoted to switching.

They may be good gadgets, they may not. But Huawei loses points for the name. And if they’re called MateBooks, they’re mates to what? Desktop systems? As in the Australian use of mate for a friend? If its the latter, that’s strange since Huawei is based in China.

And guess what colors they’re available in: Prestige Gold, Space Gray, and Rose Gold. Sound familiar?

Ikea entering the HomeKit smart lighting business

Ben Lovejoy, 9to5Mac:

Smart bulbs from the market leader Philips start at $25 per bulb for white and $50 for color, a price that soon adds up if you’re looking to fit out your entire home.

But all that is set to change in the summer as Ikea has announced that its smart lighting system will be HomeKit-compatible as of the summer. Ikea’s smart bulbs start at just $11.99.

And:

The existing product line is limited to white bulbs, but once you’ve bought the gateway for $79.99 (which includes two bulbs), you can add smart bulbs at prices ranging from $11.99 for a 1000-lumen E28 bulb, through $14.99 for a 400-lumen E12, $17.99 for a 980-lumen E27 to a $19.99 G10 spotlight. Dimmers and motion sensors are also available at similarly affordable pricing.

Ikea getting in the game brings down prices, legitimizes the sector, and will help popularize the concept of adding smart bulbs to your home.

Apple patent filing hints at iPhones (and Macs?)...

There’s more evidence that the Apple Pencil will come to the iPhone in a new patent filing (number 9,648,7040) for “devices and methods for manipulating user interfaces wth a stylus.”

In the patent filing, Apple notes the use of touch-sensitive surfaces as input devices for computers and other electronic computing devices has increased significantly in recent years. Touch-sensitive surfaces include touchpads and touch-screen displays.

User interfaces can be manipulated with either finger or stylus inputs. Apple says that finger inputs are more common than stylus inputs, in part because existing methods that use styluses are “cumbersome and inefficient.” Obviously, the company feels the Apple Pencil helps overcome such limitations. And the patent mentions use of the device with not only iPads, but also iPhones and iPad touches. Interestingly, it also mentioned the macOS.

Of course, Apple files for — and is granted — lots of patents by the U.S. Patent &...

Washington Business Journal:

Apple representatives say their plans for the historic Carnegie Library will respect and improve the building’s historic architecture.

“Some of you may say ‘Apple! I don’t want to see another glass box. We had enough of that with the Spy Museum,'” Apple development lead Michael Brown said of the International Spy Museum’s failed 2014 plan for the Carnegie Library.

And:

Brown, along with reps from architect Beyer Blinder Belle, gave a closer glimpse at Apple’s plans during a National Capital Planning Commission historic preservation meeting last week. Apple has a letter of intent with Events D.C., the District’s sports and convention arm that runs the building, to operate a global flagship store in the 63,000-square-foot building. Apple would take up most of the circa-1903 building, sharing space with the Historical Society of Washington and Events D.C.

Gartner: iPhone sales were flat year-over-year

Global sales of smartphones to end users totaled 380 million units in the first quarter of 2017, a 9.1%  increase over the first quarter of 2016, according to Gartner, Inc. Mobile phone buyers are spending more to get a better phone, resulting in the rise in average selling prices of types of phone, according to the research group.

Samsung's smartphone sales declined 3.1% in the first quarter of 2017. Sales of iPhones were flat, which led to a drop in market share year-over-year from 14.8% global marketshare in the first quarter of 2016 to 13.7% in the first quarter of 2017. The Sellers Research Group (that’s me) expects the upcoming “iPhone 8” to reverse this trend.

iPhone SE tops customer satisfaction survey

Apple is still in the lead among cell phone manufacturers with an American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI) score of 81 (out of 100). This year, the top smartphone brand is the 4-inch iPhone SE with a score of 87. 

The Galaxy S6 edge+ ties the iPhone 7 Plus in second place (86), while the Galaxy S6 edge takes third (85). Motorola’s Moto G and the LG G4 trail behind with scores of 75 and 73, respectively. The lowest-rated model, however, belongs to Samsung – the Galaxy Core Prime (70).

“Over the past few years, the general trend for smartphones has been toward larger screens,” says ACSI Managing Director David VanAmburg. “But apparently, consumers were craving a new iteration of a smaller, less expensive phone as the iPhone SE – Apple’s first update to a 4-inch phone since 2013 – comes in first in ACSI this year.”

Apple & Samsung lose smartphone market share as...

The latest Gartner data (below) shows that both Apple and Samsung lost market share in the first quarter of the year as Chinese brands continued to increase their sales.

iPhone sales actually grew very marginally year-on-year, but the market as a whole grew 9% in the same period, resulting in the decrease in market share. Apple saw its global share fall from 14.8% to 13.7%, but market leader Samsung was hit harder …

Leaked Docs Spotlight Complexity of Moderating...


The public this weekend got a rare view into how Facebook tries to keep offensive and dangerous content offline. Leaked confidential documents exposed the secret rules by which Facebook polices postings on issues such as violence, hate speech, terrorism, pornography, racism and self-harm, as well as such subjects as sports fixing and cannibalism. More than 100 internal training manuals, spreadsheets and flowcharts were leaked. Facebook has defended its moderation efforts, saying that its primary goal is keeping people on Facebook safe.

How to force the Finder to restart in macOS Sierra

Represented by the blue icon with the smiling face, the macOS Sierra Finder is the home base for your Mac. You use it to organize and access almost everything on your Mac, including documents, images, movies, and any other files you have. However, sometimes you need to restart it if it's acting ornery or if you’re installed an app that requires a restart. To do so:

  • Open the Finder.
  • Click the  menu and hold Shift on your keyboard.
  • Click Force Quit Finder.

Or you can:

  • Hold the ⌥ (alt/option) key on your keyboard.
  • Right click on the Finder icon in your Dock.
  • Click Relaunch.

(This how-to is based on my experiences and info on Apple's support pages — where the images come from.)

HomeKit light bulbs to start from $12 as Ikea...

The ability to use Siri and a single app to control your smart home technology makes HomeKit compatibility almost a must these days, but so far that has not come cheap – as both Zac and myself discovered. Smart bulbs from the market leader Philips start at $25 per bulb for white and $50 for color, a price that soon adds up if you’re looking to fit out your entire home.

But all that is set to change in the summer as Ikea has announced that its smart lighting system will be HomeKit-...

If you need a rugged, portable, wireless, solar-powered sound system, you need Etón Corp.'s Rugged rukus. It boasts an IPX4-certified splash-proof design. In addition, it can play music while simultaneously keeping your handheld device charged.

The Rugged rukus -- which can pair with any Bluetooth-compatible device -- delivers crisp stereo sound using its two full-range speaker drivers. It has the power to charge the internal lithium battery via the 20 square-inch solar panel or USB adapter. A built-in USB port enables you to charge your smartphone.

Five hours in direct sunlight fully charges the Rugged rukus; plug it in and it charges in about 2 .5 hours. When it gets dark, the internal lithium battery will keep the music going for over eight hours. 

The Etón Rugged rukus is now available at Amazon.com, REI stores and Apple online and in-store locations for $129.99.

Demodi's GroupsPro 1.0 is a contacts and groups organizer that makes it easy to create and organize groups of contacts and create mailing lists. And it allows users to manage their contacts, contact groups, and create mailing lists for mass e-mails.

The Good That Has Come Out of Apple’s Mac Lapses

Apple customers have waited for a long time to get new, updated Mac models. Apple kicked off the resurgence in late 2016 with the Touch Bar MacBook Pro, but there remained serious concerns.
