Apple's Storm Clouds


An Apple shop recently dumped Apple for Dell following a surprising revelation. Over most of the last two decades, the only time I've seen a move like this was when some change in IT forced it, and a lot of staffers subsequently would quit. This move was largely user-driven. Then, last week, one of Apple's biggest fans actually panned an Apple product, effectively calling it pretty but stupid. Finally, the reviews on the new Apple Watch were decidedly mixed, even though the product was wrapped with one of the better marketing campaigns I've seen of late.

Apple introduces NVMe support in OS X 10.10.3 update

It’s a subtle change, but it could be pretty neat in the long run.

Last week, Apple’s introduction of its OS X 10.10.3 update also quietly introduced support for the next generation NVM Express (NVMe) interface to SSD Flash drives. These drives can be found on the new Retina display MacBook as well as other units.

The cool cats at AnandTech offered a good description of the AHCI technology, which has resulted in the NVMe technology:

AHCI (Advanced Host Controller Interface) dates back to 2004 and was designed with hard drives in mind. While that doesn’t rule out SSDs, AHCI is more optimized for high latency rotating media than low latency non-volatile storage. As a result...

Report: Apple sold more than a million Apple Watches...

All models of Apple Watch quickly sold out when preorders began overnight last Friday, but now we have a better idea of which Watches were most popular.

Apple

This was the bestselling Apple Watch on Frday, Slice Intelligence said.

According to e-retail research firm Slice Intelligence, 957,000 people in the U.S. bought an Apple Watch on Friday—and many of those people bought two. The space gray Apple Watch Sport with a black Sport band was the bestselling Watch, which reflects anecdotal data we’ve heard from readers and colleagues.

The Apple Watch sold a few units on preorder around the 10th.

Almost one million units is the current guess.

The initial Apple Watch preorder numbers have been flowing in and among the first to report was research firm Slice Intelligence, which estimates nearly one million customers in the U.S. preordered the device on Friday.

Compiling data from a panel of two million online shoppers, Slice Intelligence said 957,000 U.S. customers preordered Apple Watch on its first day of availability. As expected, Apple’s cheaper Apple Watch Sport model was most popular and garnered an estimated 62 percent of orders.

So far, “Take Control of Security for Mac Users” has focused on increasing your security level, but what should you do if something bad does happen (or has perhaps already happened)? Perhaps you’ve lost data, suffered from malware or a network intrusion, or fallen prey to a phishing attack or identity theft — regardless, Joe Kissell has advice on how to recover in this final chapter of the book.

When the Apple Watch arrives on the wrists of a few users on April 24, there will be a lot of apps available. Apple CEO Tim Cook already noted in an email to employees that “over a thousand” apps have been submitted, and Apple World Today has heard from a number of developers who are working on Watch apps. Molehill created one such app for its flagship Tick time tracking service, and I had a chance to ask the product team a few questions.

Answering those questions were Alban Brooke (Director of Marketing for Molehill), Kevin Finn (co-founder of Molehill and a designer), and John Pollard (Molehill app developer). Finn and Pollard recently traveled to an Apple facility in Sunnyvale, CA to test their Tick app on actual Watch hardware. Note that some responses were tempered by the fact that the team is under a non...

This development has thrown some cold water on sites like Bandswapper, which sprung up to let someone exchange an “extra…

How to mirror your iPad or iPhone to an Amazon Fire...

I've long since abandoned the Apple TV for a Roku 3 and, more recently, the Amazon Fire TV. Though I am happy overall  with the switch, one feature I miss from the Apple TV is AirPlay, which allows you to stream content as well as mirror an iOS device or a Mac to an HDTV. Though Roku does not support iOS mirroring, there is a solution for the Fire TV thanks to the folks at Squirrels, who created a version of Reflector exclusively for Amazon's media player. 

To stream or mirror your iOS device, you first need to install Reflector on the Fire TV. The app is available on the Amazon Appstore for Android and costs $6.99. You can install it by purchasing it on the Appstore using...

With estimated Apple Watch preorders getting close to a million, a number of polls suggest that the Sport made up between 55% and 60% of these. Our own poll, by far the largest of those featured in a Fortune roundup, put Sport sales at just under 56% based on 11,865 responses at the time.

A second poll of just over 5,000 responses showed a slightly higher number of 59%, while a pre-sale poll of purchase intentions put the number at 60%. Only one poll differed markedly from this range, but that was based on a much smaller number of respondents so is likely to be less reliable … ...

A study by Slice Intelligence estimates that Apple recorded 957,000 Apple Watch preorders on Friday, the first day the device was available to order. On average, customers bought 1.3 watches which means that many customers ordered two or more units.

The most popular model purchased was the Space Grey Sport, followed by the normal stainless steel Apple Watch, then the Silver Sport. The Space Black Apple Watch model captured just 3% of orders although it was in limited supply (4 – 6 weeks) from the beginning of preorders and is also the most expensive model of Apple Watch. The report ignores sales data for the Apple Watch Edition in its calculations.

An Apple Watch meta-review reimagined

Monday Note:

As the first wave of Apple Watch reviews shows, waiting for impressions to settle down isn’t part of the Product Review genre. The psychoactive toxicity of Apple product launches that I made fun of two weeks ago is in full display as reviewers climb to the rooftops in a race for income-producing pageviews.

There’s no doubt that “page view journalism” has taken its toll on, at the very least, reviews of Apple’s products.

While previously Apple only officially supported certain Multi-Stream Transport (MST) displays at a refresh rate of 60Hz, it now says that “most single-stream 4K (3840×2160) displays” are officially supported at 60Hz as well following the recent OS X Yosemite v10.10.3 update.

Forget the Apple Watch—here's the Apple II Watch

The Apple Watch looks to be an impressive piece of gear—it’s sleek and attractive, and offers plenty of interesting and useful features. But if you’re looking for something a little more old-school, might we suggest the Apple II Watch?

The DIY Apple II Watch comes from the mind of Instructables user Aleator777, and it takes design cues from the classic Apple II computer. A bulky, beige, 3D-printed plastic shell replaces the modern metal-and-glass enclosure of Apple’s real-life offering, and a Teensy 3.1 microcontroller acts as the Apple II Watch’s brains....

It’s unimaginable that Apple would ever allow something like Popcorn Time in the App Store. It’s also inadvisable by any standard to install software like it through the method the developers provide.

Leaving aside the legality of this app, the process you have to go through in order to install it makes it a non-starter for me.

Cats are attracted to the warmth of power supplies, computers, external hard drives, even the cat-popular AirPort Extreme (before Apple redesigned it with the help of dogs...). Molly and her sister Emma live with their owner and AWT reader Harald Tammen, who sent this relaxing picture of Molly deep in dreams about getting a little Apple Watch for her paw. According to Harald:

“Molly, a 6 month old cat, enjoying the warmth of an MacBookPro power brick. She and her sister Emma were born at an animal shelter and are now living in our house. They like to play in the garden but detest rain or strong wind (which, of course, is our fault in their minds). ”

iOS 8.3 How-to: Type like a Vulcan

With Apple’s release of iOS 8.3 and OS X 10.10.3, there are now over 300 new emojis including diversity options. Apple uses the unicode emoji set, which includes Spock’s Vulcan salute. However, Apple hasn’t added the Vulcan salute — or “raised hand with fingers separated between the ring and the middle finger” symbol as it’s officially named — to the emoji keyboard, so you cannot type it without creating a workaround. There is a trick, however, that can be done by creating a keyboard shortcut.

comScore: Apple still smartphone OEM leader with 41....

ComScore has released its latest report today, detailing the market share of the major smartphone OEMs and their platforms. Unsurprisingly, Apple is still leading in terms of handsets shipped with 41.7% of smartphones shipped, while Android is still leading the mobile operating system market with 52.8% of the market.

The leaders’ numbers haven’t shifted much, with Apple’s hold on OEM market share only dipping by 0.1% compared to the quarter before, while Android has gained about 0.2% over its competitors. Samsung is the second-place OEM with 28.6% of the market (a 1.1% dip), followed by LG, Motorola, and HTC. LG is up 0.7% percent, but the latter two haven’t seen any significant change since the 3...

Apple, the watch company: Here’s what it’s like to...

Like so many reviewers who didn't get Apple Watches early, I stayed up late last night to order one of them when they became available in the online store. I snagged a 42mm space gray Apple Watch Sport with little trouble—surprisingly little trouble, compared to iPhone launch nights.

I’ve got the advantage of having already seen and worn various Apple Watch models in person, and I know pretty much what they look like and how they'll fit my wrist. Most of you haven't. Your best bet for a pre-launch introduction to the Apple Watch is to go into your nearest brick-and-mortar Apple Store, where Apple will be demoing the watches starting today.

So I can tell you what that experience is going to be like, I scheduled two try-on appointments for the Apple Watch today: one regular appointment for the standard watch, and one fancy appointment to try on the Apple Watch Edition.

While we rarely review earphones and headphones that cost less than $100 — and never review non-Apple earphones or headphones less than $50 — our new Gear section now gives readers a chance to see some of these inexpensive options. JBL’s Yurbuds brand has introduced a series of new wired sport in-earphones, Inspire 100 ($20), Inspire 200 ($30), and Inspire 300 ($40). There’s also an Inspire 400 set, which we didn’t receive.

Reality Check: Should We Buy an Apple Watch for Its...


Because there are so many Apple-loving fanatics who are hopelessly addicted to their iPhones, the first wave of Apple Watch sales won't give us a reliable indicator as to whether it is a real success... or not so much. Because we're talking about Apple here, there will be a couple million customers who will love it and make it work -- even if, deep down, they're slightly disappointed. Such is the power of Apple and the loyalty of an Apple fan. So -- do the reviews even matter?

Tim Cook visited the Palo Alto Apple Store today to check out the Apple Watch buzz, as people around the world attend try-on appointments and (failed to) pre-order Apple Watch online. In an interview with CNBC, Cook said that customer response has been extraordinary and “orders are great”.

The interviewer asks Cook what he wears day-to-day. Cook says he swaps out bands depending on the occasion but likes the Apple Watch stainless steel with the white rubber Sport band. Weirdly, Cook’s watch features a custom red crown that is usually only found on certain Apple Watch Edition models. Photo below …

A new report from Bloomberg today claims that Apple is considering $10-$15 month plans for its upcoming music streaming service while the company approaches high-profile artists to get exclusive content.

The report today follows our own report last month that Apple was planning to relaunch its Beats Music streaming service at its WWDC event in June. At the time we noted that Apple was considering a $7.99 price point, but today’s report suggests Apple could go with paid tiers ranging from $9.99/month for a single user to $14.99/month for a family account....

New MacBook available for order, but missing from...

The new MacBook is out today, if by “out” you mean “pretty much in hiding.” You can order one online, but if you were hoping to actually get one in your hot little hands today, you may find yourself disappointed.

At least I did. I have spent the morning calling around to every Apple Store in the Bay Area, and they have all explained, very politely, that I can place an order online or over the phone, but I can’t actually go to the store today and pick one up. I wound up placing an order for a space gray base model, with the earliest home delivery time of April 16–20, including a $10 rush shipping upcharge.

Review: Brookstone’s Perfect Drink 3 helps you craft...

Craft cocktails are in the midst of a renaissance, buoyed by rediscovered classic recipes, higher-quality ingredients, and increasingly talented bartenders. Pre-made mixes and artificially-flavored spirits are declining in popularity, as freshly-assembled natural flavors are ascending. But once you’ve had a truly great cocktail at a restaurant or bar, making one by yourself at home may seem challenging. The latest version of Perfect Drink ($40), Brookstone’s “app-controlled smart bartending” solution for iOS users, is here to help.

Perfect Drink has been through a few hardware and software revisions, but the latest-generation accessory and just-released version 3.0 app elevate it to greatness. The core of the product is a precise digital scale — recently upgraded from...

The age of notifications

Steven Levy:

A few weeks ago I was crossing the street. It was cold — late February in the Winter From Hell here on the east coast — and I was wearing a heavy coat with an inside pocket for my iPhone. The device buzzed and vibrated. My heart quickened. I ran the remaining few yards to the curb. I pulled off my gloves, fumbled to open the buttons of the coat, and almost dropped my bag in the process. Finally I managed to pull out the phone. On the screen was the following message:

“Braves OF B.J. Upton has changed his name to Melvin”

This was delivered to me in the standard message format, no different than a New York Times alert informing me a building two blocks from my apartment has exploded, or an iChat message that my sister is desperately trying to reach me. Please note that I am not a blood relative of B.J. — sorry, Melvin — Upton, nor am I even a fan of the Atlanta Braves. In other words…this could have waited.

I reflexively deny permission to...

How the Apple Watch try-on demo sold me on the watch...

Apple opened the floodgates for Apple Watch preorders overnight, but most of us were buying blindly without experiencing the device up close. After I placed my order for the 38mm Apple Watch Sport (with a white band just like Tim Cook), I booked an early try-on appointment at the nearest Apple Store to make sure I didn’t just make an expensive mistake.

The Apple Store near my office happens to be inside Grand Central Terminal in the heart of midtown Manhattan, which means it’s always a madhouse. I was expecting some level of pandemonium at the Apple Store, but it was completely calm. I arrived two minutes before my appointment, checked in with an employee at the top of the staircase, and was whisked to a separate area of the store for my demo.

Apple rescinds policy against hiring felons for...

San Jose Mercury News:

Apple has opened the door for construction workers with recent felonies on their records to help build its new campus.

The tech giant has lifted a requirement that people who had been convicted of felonies within the past seven years could not work on the massive Cupertino construction project, Apple spokesman Josh Rosenstock told this newspaper Thursday. After the policy came to light this week, Apple came under fire from union leaders and advocates, who say construction jobs are a key source of work for felons trying to transition back into society.

I’m glad they did this. Now I can apply for a job on the Apple Campus 2 construction crew.

Apple’s latest app Photos is now available for free as part of OS X 10.10.3 for Mac. The new app is the future of photo management from Apple with support for iCloud Photo Library, burst photos, slow-mo and time lapse videos, and more. Here’s how to migrate your photo library to the new Photos app from iPhoto or Aperture, both of which will no longer receive support for software updates going forward:

After pressing Get Started in the blue box as seen above, you have two different options. If you are brand new to photo organizing on a Mac and have never used iPhoto or Aperture before, (or if you don’t want to migrate your iPhoto or Aperture library to Photos), you have the option to import pictures from your digital camera or SD card, drag files...
