The Icon Factory: Apple Music, Beats 1, and how to...

Grantland:

As conceived, Beats 1 is the most prefab, retro pitch in Apple’s streaming service portfolio — a radio station, with DJs and songs. Beats 1, of course, has been much more than that, and sometimes a little less. A tastemaker with no genre-bound point of view, a 24-hour channel that is “always on,” and a hub for famous voices to share their loves, the station has become the surprising hallmark of Apple’s streaming bid.

Turns out people still like listening to the radio.

It’s going to be interesting to see if Beats 1 can “make a star” – if, with promotion and air play, Beats 1 can take an unknown artist to global popularity.

Apple’s hiring of a former Microsoft employee is fueling rumors that the company is working on an augmented reality interface, Street Insider reports. In a note to clients, Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster said, “Based on recent acquisitions of augmented reality companies, hiring of a key Microsoft Hololens employee, and conversations with industry contacts within the virtual and augmented reality spaces, we believe Apple has a team…

Report: New Apple TV said to cost between $149 and $...

An iPhone refresh at Apple's September 9 event is all but certain, but the more interesting news might actually be about the Apple TV. The company is said to be revamping the set-top box's hardware for the first time since March of 2012, and historically reliable sources say that the update will also include a redesigned remote control with touch capabilities and Siri support, along with a new app store and SDK.

Those features come at a cost, though. A report from 9to5Mac says that the new Apple TV could cost somewhere between $149 and $199, a substantial increase from the $99 that the third-generation Apple TV cost when it was released. That model...

T-Mobile gives Data Tethering Abusers the Smackdown

If you've been finding ways to work around T-Mobile's data tethering caps, get ready for a smackdown because company CEO John Legere is gunning for you. He said customers who find ways to work around the 7GB monthly tethering cap are stealing and that's going stop. About 3,000 people are being targeted, and will get bumped from their unlimited data plan to a capped entry level plan.

The Mac Observer Spin: T-Mobile is clearly making an example out of its most extreme tethering abusers, and the message the company is sending is clear: Play by the rules and we can all be friends; abuse the system and we'll go medieval on you.

Apple's hiring of a Microsoft HoloLens audio...

In a note to clients — as noted by AppleInsider — Piper Jaffray analyst Travis Jakel says Apple has hired Nick Thompson, formerly the lead audio engineer for Microsoft's HoloLens augmented reality project. Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster, thinks this is further evidence that the company likely has an internal team working on potential augmented reality (AR) projects. 

"We believe AR audio is often thought of as not important or secondary to the experience, however, we believe positional audio is what sells the experience and convinces the user there is a real object in front of you or behind you," Munster wrote. "The ability to re-create sound coming from a distinct location and changes based on proximity and direction of the object should not be overlooked."

Augmented reality (AR) is a live direct or indirect view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are supplemented by computer-generated...

Over 225,000 Apple Accounts Compromised Via iOS...

An anonymous reader writes: Researchers from Palo Alto Networks and WeipTech have unearthed a scheme that resulted in the largest known Apple account theft caused by malware. All in all, some 225,000 valid Apple accounts have been compromised. The theft is executed via variants of the KeyRaider iOS malware, which targets jailbroken iOS devices. Most of the victims are Chinese — the malware is distributed through third-party Cydia repositories in China — but users in other countries have also been affected (European countries, the U.S., Australia, South Korea, and so on). "The malware hooks system processes through MobileSubstrate, and steals Apple account usernames, passwords and device GUID by intercepting iTunes traffic on the device," Palo Alto researcher Claud Xiao explained. "KeyRaider steals Apple push notification service certificates and private keys, steals and shares App Store purchasing information, and disables local and remote unlocking functionalities on iPhones and...

Apple reportedly wants Siliconware to become a SiP...

Apple has approached Siliconware Precision Industries Co Ltd (SPIL) about becoming a supplier of system-in-package (SiP) technology for the Apple Watch and for fingerprint recognition chips, an online media source based in Taiwan, according to United Daily News, an online media source base din Taiwan.

SPIL focuses on semiconductor packaging and testing services for personal computers, communications, consumer integrated circuits markets. SiP involves a number of integrated circuits enclosed in a single package. It performs all or most of the functions of an electronic system, and is typically used inside a mobile phone, digital music player, and the like. 

The SiP inside the Apple Watch is the Apple S1. It includes a custom ARM processor, RAM, storage, NFC radio controller, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth module, touchscreen controllers and other components.

Apple will almost certainly announce the next generation iPhone at its Sept. 9 media event. However, China Mobile, China Telecom and China Unicom will start selling the "iPhone 6s" on Sept. 25 and pre-sales will begin on Sept. 18, according to the Leaksfly microblog (as noted by BrightWire.com, a global investment newswire).

The iPhone 6s is the name expected to be given to the next version of the smartphone — unless Apple decides to call it the iPhone 7. Citing sources within China Mobile, Leaksfly claims the 16GB version will be priced at CNY 5,299 (about US$831), the 64GB version at CNY 5,999 and 128GB version at CNY 6,599.

At one point, it was suspected that Apple would phase out the 16GB model and start entry-level models at 32GB. However, recent rumors have Apple continuing the 16GB baseline smartphone...

New Rumor Two-tier Pricing for Apple TV

When the price of Apple TV dropped to US$69 and added "starting at" to the streaming content device's webpage, Apple clearly telegraphed a higher priced model would be coming. Now a rumor claims that second model will be priced between $149 and $199, and is going to be introduced during the company's September 9 media event.

The Mac Observer Spin: Reports of a new Apple TV model that costs more and includes Siri voice control and an App Store isn't much of a surprise. When Apple changed the price of the third generation Apple TV to "starting at $69," it was all but confirming the higher priced model with more features was on the way.

How the Windows Phone Could Rise Up and Dominate


Last week marked the 20th anniversary of the launch of Windows 95. What people often forget about Windows 95 is that it not only kicked Apple's butt, but also kicked IBM's -- and it wasn't even a complete product. The thing was an operating system. Most of us can see lining up to buy a complete product, but lining up to buy the software that makes a product complete would be kind of like lining up to get the latest software patch for your car or TV. It's especially hard to imagine now that there's no need to stand in line.

T-Mobile has announced that it’s going to seriously clamp down on any users using unauthorized methods to get around its tethering cap. Those caught using more data than they should be on the highest tier, unlimited Simple Choice plan will be warned to stop, before being moved down to the entry-level plan. This move is aimed specifically at smartphone users who deliberately break T-Mo’s terms and conditions using workarounds to conceal their tethering usage.

The magenta carrier published an updated FAQ page on its support site stating that some customers have been blowing way past the 7GB tethering limit on the highest Simple Choice plan. Some using as much as 2TB (2000GB) of data on their mobile plan. Its...

Video producer hooks up six 4K monitors to Mac Pro...

Video producer Adam Matthews wanted to double the number of 4K monitors hooked up to his Mac Pro, so built an external GPU to do it. He used a Sonnet Thunderbolt chassis with an AMD 7970 GPU – before discovering that the machine could actually drive all six monitors without it.

When Matthews tried connecting the monitors using only the twin graphics cards built into the Mac Pro, just to see what would happen, he found he was still able to get 60Hz on each, suggesting that Apple has been conservative in its claims.

Of course, it’s possible that the strain of pushing video to six monitors at once might shorten the life of the Mac Pro, so his Plan A is probably the best route to go if you want to emulate his setup.

Future MacBook Pros could themselves drive three 4K monitors at 60Hz...

The remote control is thought to be likely to target casual gamers and the current thought is that a game controller with a microphone, physical buttons, touchpad and motion-sensitive controls could do this.

That’s the market Sony hopes to appeal to with a new hybrid watch called Wena (which apparently stands for ‘wear electronics naturally’), which it’s pitching on its Japanese crowdfunding site First Flight.

It’s mostly a traditional analogue watch, but a link to an iOS app gives it limited smartwatch functionality. On the smartwatch side, you get fitness band functionality, and notifications are echoed to the watch in the form of an LED and vibration … ...

Rumors: New Apple TV to debut September 9th, ship in...

The Apple rumor mill is currently abuzz with chatter about a revamped Apple TV, and thanks to a new report from 9to5Mac, we’re getting a better sense of what to expect.

According to 9to5Mac’s Mark Gurman, the new Apple TV will cost either $149 or $199, depending on what Apple’s executive team settles on, and will ship sometime in October. Gurman also says the current Apple TV model will stick around as a low-end option, since the new Apple TV won’t be price-competitive with streaming devices from Roku, Amazon, and others.

Previous reports indicated a seriously revamped Apple TV is on its way. Earlier this month, 9to5Mac reported that the new Apple TV will come with a retooled remote, built-in Siri, a new user interface, more powerful innards, and support for third-party apps, among other...

BMW: all models electric within decade

NASDAQ:

German luxury car giant Bayerische Motoren Werke AG or BMW Group is looking to go all-electric over the next 10 years due to the upcoming stricter carbon emission laws. Virtually every BMW model would be converted to electric drivetrains, including range-extending engines and plug-in hybrids.

The transition will see even the company’s top-selling 3 Series sport sedans turned into plug-in hybrids.

The company is weary of the stringent European Union regulations that greatly reduce the average carbon emissions permitted from road vehicles. They are said to be tougher than either North American or Chinese emission levels.

Some are calling this the “death of the internal combustion engine”. That is unlikely to happen any time soon but electric is the future. BMW is just getting out ahead of it.

The iPhone accessories market is a competitive industry and companies will do anything to get ahead. Case manufacturer Spigen has put itself out there by already promoting iPhone 6S cases on its website and selling them on Amazon, weeks ahead of Apple’s official unveiling of the new phone.

Obviously, as the iPhone 6S exterior design is the same as the iPhone 6, most iPhone 6 cases should fit the new phones so advertising ‘iPhone 6S exclusive cases’ is more of a PR play than anything. The company is also teasing Rose Gold colored iPhones on its website, pictured above....

As part of a charity music event raising money for children affected by Hurricane Katrina, Apple Music rival TIDAL streamed the event live on its website. However, when Drake took the stage to perform his set, the stream was abruptly paused. A message from TIDAL said that Apple had banned Drake from allowing his performance to be broadcast online, with TIDAL saying that Apple is “interfering with artistry” and apologizing for the “big brother” influence.

TIDAL made similar claims on its Twitter feed but it turns out these claims are simply untrue. Although it is true that Apple has an exclusivity deal with Drake for his new album, the contract does not stop Drake from streaming live performances....

A FreeBSD "Spork" With Touches of NeXT and...

There are a lot of open source operating systems out there; being open source, they lend themselves to forks, clones or near clones, and friendly offshoots. There are even services to let you customize, download, and (if you choose) bulk-install your own OS based on common components. Phoronix notes a new project called NeXTBSD that might turn more heads than most new open source OSes, in part because of the developers behind it, and in part because of the positive thoughts many people have toward the aesthetics of NeXTSTEP and Mac OS X. (And while it might be a fork of FreeBSD, the developers would rather call it a spork, instead.)

NeXTBSD was announced last week by Jordan Hubbard and Kip Macy at the Bay Area FreeBSD Users Group (BAFUG). NeXTBSD / FreeBSD X is based on the FreeBSD-CURRENT kernel while adding in Mach IPC, Libdispatch, notifyd, asld, launchd, and other components derived from Apple's open-source code for OS X. The basic launchd/notifyd/asld/libdispatch stack...

Google undermining Apple’s planned iOS 9 security

Those settings, which are slated to arrive when Apple launches its iOS 9 operating system in September, will require all content that arrives on an iPhone (via apps, ads or otherwise) to use an encryption setting known as “https.” The setting ensures that third parties can’t read or track what users are doing on their phones.

In a blog post this week, Google told AdMob users to get ready for the new Apple setting. But if they’re not prepared, Google said, they can use a few lines of code to override it.

Lara Croft GO ($5) — Square Enix Montréal follows up on last year’s Hitman GO with a new “GO” instalment similarly based on a popular console game franchise. Like its predecessor, instead of replicating the console game onto the iOS device, Lara Croft GO creates a turn based puzzle adventure game set in the same game universe. In a game that feels like a cross between Hitman GO and Monument Valley — another one of our favorite…

Save Space and Uninstall Apps with CleanMyMac 3

MacPaw’s CleanMyMac 3 is a multipurpose Mac maintenance tool and uninstaller. Joe Kissell thinks it’s effective, attractive, and easy to use — a worthy addition to any Mac user’s toolbox. But he also points out that it’s not a complete maintenance solution, and that some of its recommendations should be skipped.

Apple’s signifcant update to its upcoming Apple TV set-top box is expected to feature some significant user experience improvements, according to a new report by TechCrunch. While many of the details such as the inclusion of Apple’s A8 processor, a touch-based remote, and an SDK for developers to take advantage of have already been revealed previously, this latest report suggests that all of this will combine to create a vastly better…

New information for the Intel Skylake processors that are most likely to wind up in a MacBook Air has been released.

The Skylake processors, which may be branded the “Core m3″, “Core m5″ and “Core m7″ offer the following specs:

The low-end Core m3 6Y30 has a 900 MHz dual-core processor with Turbo Boost up to 2.2 GHz. The chip has 4MB of L3 cache, HD 515 graphics, a maximum GPU frequency of 850 MHz and 4.5 watt thermal design power (TDP). This chip would likely be suited for the base model 12-inch MacBook sold for US$1,299.

The mid-tier Core m5 6Y54 and Core m5 6Y57 are similar chips with 1.1 GHz dual-core processors and Turbo Boost up...

The products receiving obsolete status include the original Apple TV, Mac mini (late 2009), Apple LED Cinema Display (24-inch), Apple Cinema Display (30-inch DVI Early 2007), 2nd and 3rd generation iPod touch, 3rd generation iPod shuffle, 5th generation iPod nano, and the iPod classic.

Rumor: Apple to keep next-gen iPhone base end...

It looks like 16 gigabytes will continue to remain the low end of storage for Apple’s next-gen iPhone.

A purported photo of an iPhone 6S information sheet seems to indicate that Apple will stick with 16 GB of storage for the base model. The image comes from Steve Hemmerstoffer and matches analysis of iPhone 6S components obtained by 9to5Mac back in June, which showed Apple using 16 GB memory chips in preproduction units.

It was initially thought that Apple would bump the low end’s storage up appreciably, although early builds of iOS 9 indicate that the new operating system is more efficient with its storage space.

The photo has yet to be verified and has...

Police in North Dakota can use drones armed with what are optimistically called "nonlethal weapons," thanks to the passage of House Bill 1328, which Gov. Jack Dalrymple signed into law this spring. The new law gives police the authority in a roundabout way: Section 5 states a law enforcement agency may not authorize the use of an unmanned aerial vehicle armed with lethal weapons. Rep. Rick Becker, R-Bismarck, in January introduced the bill, which originally sought to ban both lethal and nonlethal weapons.

We recently received Tech21's new Evo Mesh Sport for iPhone 6 ($40) and Evo Elite for iPhone 6 Plus ($50) — though both cases are available for both of Apple's current iPhones. Both cases provide button coverage and are integrated with FlexShock, "a new cutting edge hybrid impact protection material which absorbs, dissipates and repels shock away from your device when dropped." It's a TPU case with small strips of rubber lining to cushion the phone. Evo Elite sets itself apart with a scratch-resistant coating, and a built-in hard plastic bumper on the sides of the case.{/exp:char_limit}

Apple takes Washington

Politico:

A private conference in Washington with the attorney general (in itself a rarity for many tech magnates) would have been unthinkable for Cook’s irascible predecessor, Steve Jobs, who actively disdained D.C. Cook, much as he sought to shirk Jobs’ shadow as CEO, had also endeavored quietly to rethink his company’s relationship with the nation’s capital, becoming a leader not only ready to engage its power brokers but challenge them openly when it mattered most.

Watching Cook in his dealings with Washington has been fascinating precisely because it’s something Steve Jobs hated and wouldn’t do. Cook seems more open and able to navigate the issues.

The $7 Dispatch has long let you triage your email in complex fashion, supporting interactions with more than 20 third-party apps so you can, say, put an email on your to-do list for later attention rather than let it consume you right away.

Lifehacker:

People say that “everyone should work retail or service at least once in their lives.” I couldn’t agree more. Like many people, some of my first jobs were retail service gigs. One in a department store, another in a bookstore. I’ve long since moved on, but I learned a lot about the nature of people—and how that battle between selfishness and empathy is something we all struggle with, every day.

I never worked long in retail but I was there long enough to know the jobs generally sucked. 99% of retail employees are good, hardworking people. Please treat them with the same respect you want for yourself.

Customers could test drive the Apple Watch via a demo unit connected to an iPad mini or try it on at a series of try-on stations. Following a pilot program across select Apple Stores across the world, Apple has now begun a widespread rollout of a new Apple Watch testing program called Mobile Try-On, according to Apple Retail employees.

StellaService says Apple's customer service has...

A study by StellaService, which measures online customer service, indicates a decline in Apple's customer service in recent months.

The decline, as reported by Cult of Mac, mainly involves Apple’s phone, email and chat problem resolution scores. While Apple typically ranks highly in this category, this quarter the amount of time customers had to wait to chat to an Apple rep increased from 34 seconds to 63 seconds. 

Even when people do get to chat to someone, the successful chat resolution rate — referring to the questions answered satisfactorily — fell from 97 percent down to 94 percent. Customers also had to wait longer to speak to a person on the phone. Wait times increased to 121 seconds, although the resolution rate was much better, at 99 percent success.

Apple cites “fewer customers” signing up for One to One as the reason behind the service’s upcoming closure:

The Financial Times reported Friday that Rogers resigned unexpectedly just two months after helping to launch Apple Music. But he’s not leaving to work for a streaming music rival—Rogers is going to work for a European company in an entirely different industry.

iPhone 6s rumors: Hello rose gold, goodbye iPhone 5c

The yearly iPhone refresh is a fact of life, as unmistakeable a sign of fall as back-to-school sales and baseball playoffs. And one thing you can count on just as certainly as a new iPhone is the rumor mill spinning out of control leading up to its unveiling. The iPhone 6s is no exception.

To help make sense of the chaotic hearsay, we've collected every rumor that has surfaced about the iPhone 6s, from its reported specs to its guesstimated release date, and everything in between—as well as tried to discern the plausibly of the rumor. It’s been a long, rumor-packed summer, but Apple will finally take the wraps off its new phones on Sept. 9. Until then, here's what we've been hearing so far.

Quite possibly one of the longest accessory names I’ve heard, but I’ll easily forgive that for the functionality it brings along…

A Seeking Alpha article by "Electric Phred" says there's a good chance we'll see the rumored Apple Car at Apple's Sept. 9 media event. However, if I were a betting man, I'd bet against it.

Why? Electric Phred notes a report that says: "Sidewalks on two sides of the venue are inaccessible to pedestrians. Enormous power generators are stationed on the Larkin Street side of the building, occupying a lane of parking spots."

This leads him to this conclusion: "What sort of unveiling needs a 7000 seat venue, weeks of work, and likely millions of dollars? This wouldn't seem to me to be just the unveiling of the iPhone 6s or the iPad Pro (which one rumor has sporting an Intel Processor). I am betting we may see the Apple electric vehicle.
