Pioneer’s expanded NEX platform adds CarPlay support

Pioneer Electronics has expanded its NEX platform with five new, Apple CarPlay-compatible NEX in-dash multimedia receivers: the double-DIN 7-inch LCD AVH-2330NEX and AVH-2300NEX and double-DIN 6.2-inch LCD AVH-1330NEX and AVH-1300NEX models.

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...

Review: iWalk Watchman Backup Battery for Apple...

While external battery packs are becoming pretty generic, we've generally been pretty impressed with what iWalk has done with its battery packs over the years, providing good, high-capacity battery options at pretty reasonable prices. So we were somewhat intrigued when iWalk announced their new Watchman battery pack that provides the same 10,000 mAh capacity that the company has been known for, while also incorporating an Apple Watch charger. While iWalk is a bit late to the Apple Watch charging game, it's worth noting that it carries around twice the capacity of competing Apple Watch battery packs, albeit with a corresponding price premium. {/exp:char_limit}

App Maker's Code Stolen in Malware Attack

Mac and iOS software developer Panic has had the source code for several of its apps stolen. An anonymous reader writes: Panic founder Steven Frank said in a blog post that it happened after he downloaded an infected copy of the video encoding tool Handbrake. He said there was no sign that any customer data was accessed and that Panic's web server was not affected. Users have been warned to download Panic's apps only from its website or the Apple App Store. Panic is the creator of web editing and file transfer apps Coda and Transmit, and the video game Firewatch. On May 2, Handbrake was hacked, with the Mac version of the app on one of the site's download servers replaced by a malicious copy. In what Mr Frank called "a case of extraordinarily bad luck", he downloaded the malicious version of Handbrake and launched it "without stopping to wonder why Handbrake would need admin privileges... when it hadn't before. And that was that, my Mac was completely, entirely compromised in three...

Now Belkin has reversed course, telling 9to5Mac, “Wemo is committed to bringing HomeKit support to our line of smart home solutions and will be providing more details soon.” Belkin didn’t say what caused the change of heart, but it’s possible that Apple will announce loosened HomeKit restrictions at WWDC.

Apple is shoring up Siri for its next generation of...

John Mannes, TechCrunch:

Siri is a critical component of Apple’s vision for the future, so integral that it was willing to spend $200 million to acquire Lattice Data over the weekend. The startup was working to transform the way businesses deal with paragraphs of text and other information that lives outside neatly structured databases.

And:

Apple paid roughly $10 million for each of Lattice’s 20 engineers. This is generally considered to be fair market value. Google paid about $500 million for DeepMind back in 2014. At that time, the startup had roughly 75 employees, of which a portion were machine learning developers.

That math is fascinating. Machine learning seems a fantastic path for developers to explore.

Apple relies on a number of partnerships, including a major one with Yahoo, to provide Siri with the facts it needs to answer questions. It competes with Google, a company that possesses what is largely considered to be the crème de la...

Twitter rolls out new privacy tools as it ditches Do...

Twitter is dumping its support for Do Not Track (DNT), changing how it shares user data with third parties, and holding any web browsing data it collects for a longer duration—all to better aid in ad targeting, of course.

But at the same time, Twitter is giving users more control over what kind of user data can be used for targeted advertising, as well as more transparency about the information it collects about you.

The privacy features are active now, but the new privacy policies that dump DNT, change data sharing policies, and hold your data longer don't come into effect until June 18. Here's a look at what's going on.

If you go to the "Your Twitter data" section of your account settings, you'll see there's a lot of information there about your activity and how you're being advertised to.

John Voorhees, MacStories:

Early last year, James Rath, a young filmmaker who was born legally blind, created a video about the impact Apple products have had on his life. That video caught the attention of Apple.

In the ensuing months, Rath’s YouTube career has taken off and he’s become a strong advocate for the blind.

To mark Global Accessibility Awareness Day, Tim Cook spoke with Rath and two other YouTubers, Rikki Poynter and Tatiana Lee about accessibility. Cook and Poynter, who is deaf, discussed closed captioning and how accessibility is a core value at Apple. Lee talked to Cook about the Apple Watch and its ability to track wheelchair use. Rath and Cook explored the history of Apple’s commitment to accessibility and the democratization of technology.

RIP Blobs: Google redesigns emojis

Emojipedia:

Having appeared in various shapes and sizes since Android 4.4; the amorphous blob that defined Google’s emoji appearance since 2013 is being retired.

In its place: a redesign of every emoji in Android, coming as part of Android “O” which was announced today at Google I/O.

Follow the link, take a look at the new artwork. It’s certainly an improvement. Given the fragmentation of Android updates, not sure how big an impact this will have.

Also mentioned by Google is functionality which would allow users to download newer emoji fonts to support the latest emojis even on older Android versions.

So that’s something. But it requires specific action on the part of the user. If they’ve not moved to update to a newer phone or newer version of Android, not sure how effective this will be.

IBM has announced that the Singapore Airlines (SIA) Group selected MobileFirst for iOS apps to provide a “seamless experience” across flight operations processes. With apps, Fly Now and Roster for iPad, pilots will be equipped with relevant information and flight-related updates.

The use of the apps are expected to enhance pilot productivity by digitizing manual processes related to airline operations and regulations, according to Captain Quay Chew Eng, SIA's senior vice president of Flight Operations. These mandatory processes are critical aspects of flight readiness from pre-flight right through post-flight operations, he adds.

From mid-June this year, SIA pilots will have access to these two new iOS apps, as part of a suite of apps installed on company-issued iPads. A cross-geography team from IBM iX, one of the world's largest digital agencies, has been working closely with Singapore...

Apple granted patent for flexible electronic devices

There have been rumors that future iPhones may be bendable. Apple has been granted a patent (number 20170139532) for flexible electronic devices that hints that this could indeed take place.

In the patent filing, Apple notes that rigid electronic devices may be vulnerable to damage in the event of an impact such as a drop of the device on a hard surface. The company says it “would therefore be desirable to be able to provide improved electronic devices.” One way to do that is with flexible devices.

Here’s Apple’s summary of the patent: “A flexible electronic device may include a flexible display, a flexible housing and one or more flexible internal components configured to allow the flexible electronic device to be deformed. Flexible displays may include flexible display layers, flexible touch-sensitive layers, and flexible display cover layers. 

“The flexible housing may be a multi-stable flexible housing having one or more stable positions. The flexible...

How to export one calendar and import it into...

In macOS Sierra’s Calendar app, you can move all events from one calendar to another by exporting one calendar and importing it into another.

If you use iCloud calendars or a calendar server account, you don’t need to export and import calendars to back them up. Your devices’ calendars are synced; when you set up new devices to use the account, your calendars are restored from the cloud or from the calendar server and you don’t need to restore from a backup.

To merge an entire calendar with another, export the calendar, import it into a calendar, and delete the old calendar.

To export a calendar’s events:

  • Click the calendar’s name in the calendar list. If you don’t see the calendar list on the left, choose View > Show Calendar List.
  • Choose File > Export > Export.
  • Choose a location, then click Export. The events are exported to an calendar (.ics) file.

For those unfamiliar, Poynter is a 25-year-old deaf YouTuber who started out with a focus on beauty products but has since switched to advocacy for closed captioning, signing, and the deaf culture.

In her sit-down with Tim Cook, Poynter discusses the Apple products she uses, why Apple cares about accessibility, and more. Additionally, Tim Cook sat down with blind YouTuber James Rath, and Accessible Hollywood…

Google IO17: Android deployment rate continues to...




Google has unveiled new versions of Android at its annual I/O developer convention with features often inspired by the previous year's iOS. The main difference: Apple can launch a new version of iOS and broadly distribute it before Google can deploy its copy of last year's iOS across even a third of its installed base. This problem is getting worse each year for Google and its Android partners.

Don't Panic: Breach at software developer...

Long-time software developer Panic alerted its customers on Wednesday via a blog post about the theft of a large portion of the source code to its Mac and iOS apps. The company maintains customer information and operates a sync service for passwords and accounts for some of its software, but its co-founder, Steven Frank, wrote in the post that private information wasn’t compromised. (We’ve asked Panic for comment, and will update this story if they have more to add.)

Frank fell afoul of a recent Trojan horse inserted into the popular Handbrake software that installed remote-control software on an infected Mac. The malware was used to exfiltrate Frank’s details to access the company’s code on its version-control...

Apple simplifies Windows 10 installs with support...

Apple this week updated macOS Sierra to version 10.12.5 with more than three dozen security patches, and a change that lets users install Microsoft's latest version of Windows 10 on their Macs.

Sierra 10.12.5 "adds support for media-free installation of Windows 10 Creators Update using Boot Camp," the update's brief release notes read. Creators Update was the name Microsoft assigned to Windows 10 1703, the upgrade issued last month.

Boot Camp, which is baked into macOS, lets Mac owners run Windows on their machines. A Windows license is required. Boot Camp, while not virtualization software like VMware's Fusion or Parallels International's Parallels Desktop, serves the same purpose: Running Windows applications, including custom or mission-critical corporate software, on a Mac personal computer.

Hands-on: Accell’s USB-C to HDMI 2.0 adapter...

A few weeks ago we reviewed Aukey’s USB-C to HDMI Cable for the MacBook Pro. It worked, but since it featured HDMI 1.4, it only allowed for connecting to 4K displays at 30Hz max.

While such an adapter works well for watching movies with lesser refresh rates, 30Hz is not the ideal refresh rate for working on a computer monitor. Such a refresh rate can often lead to headaches and eyestrain, not to mention the choppiness and laggy cursor movement.

Accell’s new USB-C adapter promises to address this issue by including HDMI 2.0. How is this possible when USB-C only supports HDMI 1.4b? Watch our hands-on video inside for the details. more…

Apple Starts Assembling iPhones In India

Apple has successfully completed its first trial run assembly of the iPhone SE in India, reports The Wall Street Journal. "We are beginning initial production of a small number of iPhone SE in Bengaluru," Apple said in a statement to TechCrunch. "iPhone SE is the most popular and powerful phone with a four-inch display in the world and we'll begin shipping to domestic customers this month." From the report: The four-inch SE is Apple's least expensive model, running $399 in the States. Some retailers in the country have managed to undercut the cost, lower the entry level price of the handset by around $80 -- but even at that price, it's still substantially more expensive than most. In spite of its relatively low pricing, the SE doesn't appear to have made quite the splash Apple was initially anticipating in the country. Apple has long been working to move production to the country, hoping, in part, to retake some of the market it has lost in China in recent years, as domestic...

92% of iPhone users likely to upgrade in the next 12...

In a note to clients — as noted by MacRumors — investment banking firm Morgan Stanley 92% of iPhone owners say they're "somewhat likely" or "extremely likely" to upgrade their smartphone in the next 12 months. The loyalty rate, up from 86% a year ago, is based on an April 2017 survey of 1,000 smartphone owners aged 18 and above in the United States.

“It's our belief that a maturing installed base that is accustomed to iOS and increased press around potential new technologies in the upcoming iPhone drove the strong year-over-year increase,” analyst Katy Huberty wrote in the note. “Importantly, the rise in Apple's loyalty rates comes after Samsung, Apple's biggest competitor in the United States, introduced the Galaxy S8, which was available for pre-order starting March 30th. Apple's loyalty rate of 92% dwarfs that of all other vendors, with Samsung garnering a 77% retention rate, followed by LG (59%), Motorola (56%), and...

Panic source code stolen

In a case of extraordinarily bad luck, even for a guy that has a lot of bad computer luck, I happened to download HandBrake in that three day window, and my work Mac got pwned.

Long story short, somebody, somewhere, now has quite a bit of source code to several of our apps.

Okay, that’s bad, but there is some good news:

  • There’s no indication any customer information was obtained by the attacker.
  • Furthermore, there’s no indication Panic Sync data was accessed.
  • Finally, our web server was not compromised.

Google Assistant coming to iOS

At its I/O 2017 developer conference today, Google announced Google Assistant is coming to iOS as a standalone app, rolling out to the U.S. first. Until now, the only way iPhone users could access Google Assistant was through Allo, the Google messaging app nobody uses.

It’s great that Google Assistant is coming, but the lack of integration with iOS will certainly hurt its chances of being used as much as Siri.
