Study: Apple engineers can’t afford to live near...

Apple engineers can’t afford to live near their Cupertino, California offices, according to the real-estate startup Open Listings (as noted by Fast Company), which looked at median home sales prices near the headquarters (meaning within a 20-minute commute) of some of the Bay Area’s biggest and best-known tech companies. 

Using public salary data from Paysa, Open Listings then looked at how many software engineers from those companies could actually afford to buy a house close to their office. They found thatApple engineers would have to pay an average of 33% of their monthly income for a mortgage near work....

Apple: HomePod base can leave residue on wood...

Apple tells Wirecutter that the HomePod’s base can indeed leave residue on certain wood countertops, as reviewers and owners (such as Pocket-lint, and folks on Twitter) have noticed.

Barclays says Apple is working on 3D scanning tech...

Boy, the analysts have been busy today. In a note to clients — as noted by AppleInsider — Barclays in London, says Apple and its partners are "working hard on a world-facing solution" capable of scanning surroundings in 3D, similar to what the TrueDepth system does for a user's face. 

The British multinational bank and financial services company claims that development is ongoing, and lots of details must be hammered out before it’s included in any 2019 iPhones. Barclays believes Apple "remains fully committed" to dive into that aspect in other hardware offerings beyond just the iPhone. 

As the TrueDepth sensor hardware expands to other Apple devices, the firm expects that Apple will open up ARKit even more over time, to encompass the expansion of the technology. At the 2017...

Beware “Protect” In Facebook’s iOS App

Facebook has added a Protect item to a screen in its iOS app that lists Facebook services. Tapping Protect takes you to an App Store page for a VPN called Onavo Protect that admits that it is owned by Facebook and “collects your mobile data traffic.” Worse, 12.5 million iOS users may already be using Onavo Protect.

Apple confirms HomePod can leave white ring on wood...

An unhappy discovery after we placed a HomePod on an oiled butcher-block countertop and later on a wooden side table was that it left a defined white ring in the surface. Other reviewers and owners (such as Pocket-lint, and folks on Twitter) have reported the same issue, which an Apple representative has confirmed. Apple says “the marks can improve over several days after the speaker is removed from the wood surface,” and if they don’t fade on their own, you can basically just go refinish the furniture—the exact advice Apple gave in an email to Wirecutter was to “try cleaning the surface with the manufacturer’s suggested oiling method.”

I didn’t have my HomePod placed on an oiled wood surface, so I never noticed this. Still, it doesn’t seem like this is something you would want to have happen when placing a speaker in your home.

The 50-watt Friedman Buxom Betty is what guitar amp fantasies are made of — a gorgeous, hand-wired single-channel amp that delivers the dynamic shimmer of American vintage tube combos as well as the comely roar of classic British stacks.

I really like the unique sound of Friedman amps. The Buxom Betty cleans up really well, but it also gives you some grit when you need it.

Apple’s HomePod: Paying $350 for a speaker that says...

Jeff Dunn

What is this thing?

That, in essence, is the question most onlookers have asked about Apple’s HomePod speaker since its unveiling last summer. The natural inclination is to compare it to smart speakers like the Amazon Echo or Google Home. It’s a speaker with a talking assistant in it, the thinking goes. Apple just wants a piece of that growing pie.

Apple's Software 'Problem' and '...

According to media reports, Apple is planning to postpone some new features for iOS and macOS this year to focus on improving reliability, stability and performance of the existing versions. Steven Sinofsky, a former President of the Windows Division, shared his insights into the significance of this development: Several important points are conflated in the broad discussion about Apple and software: Quality, pace of change, features "versus" quality, and innovation. Scanning the landscape, it is important to recognize that in total the work Apple has been doing across hardware, software, services, and even AI/ML, in total -- is breathtaking and unprecedented in scope, scale, and quality. Few companies have done so much for so long with such a high level of consistency. This all goes back to the bet on the NeXT code base and move to Intel for Mac OS plus the iPod, which began the journey to where we are today. [...] What is lost in all of this recent discussion is the nuance...

Report: publishers jump on Slack, then pitch big...

When news publishers have a big story these days,” their editors jump on Slack and pitch it to an unlikely partner: Apple,” according to The Information. The tech giant has built a “small but powerful news team that is making Apple a key distribution outlet for news publishers,” the article adds. 

From a pitch received via a dedicated Slack channel, Apple’s editorial team of about a dozen staffers in the U.S. decides what story gets featured at the top of the app or to the left of the home screen. That can yield a flood of traffic for publishers.

However, some publishers feel that there’s not a consistent, predictable stream of readers through the service. Instead, major traffic is driven by Apple's selection of "Spotlight" or "Top Stories" with little attention given to non-breaking news.

Twelve South launches new SurfacePad leather cover...

Apple accessory maker Twelve South today launched a new SurfacePad cover for the iPhone X. More like a Smart Cover for the iPhone than a traditional case, it protects the front and rear of your iPhone X, while providing sleep/wake functionality by way of a magnetized front cover.

The iPhone X SurfacePad also provides two handy credit card slots, works as a stand for videos and FaceTime calls, and is comprised of full-grain leather instead of Napa leather like the previous version. As a result, users can expect the updated cover to have a longer lifespan and wear in better over time.

The $49.99 SurfacePad is available in three colors: Black, Cognac, and Deep Teal. Twelve South sent us samples of the latter two to examine. Watch our hands-on impressions for more details. more…

Analysts: 2018 iPhones will sport a TrueDepth camera...

In a note to clients — as noted by MacRumors — Barclays analysts Andrew Gardiner, Hiral Patel, Joseph Wolf, and Blayne Curtis said Apple will launch three new iPhone models this year with a second-generation TrueDepth camera system, which will potentially be reduced in size.

The TrueDepth camera system is required for Face ID on the iPhone X. A smaller notch would please the critics who say it’s too darn big on the iPhone X. However, as MacRumors notes, an earlier rumor suggested the notch won't be reduced in size until 2019 or later, and it's generally expected that 2018 iPhones will look virtually identical to the iPhone X.

Spiceworks has announced the results of a new survey that examines how businesses are securing their data and devices on corporate and public Wi-Fi networks. It revealed the perceived Wi-Fi risks associated with traditional computing devices is much lower, particularly among Apple products. 

Only about 19% of IT professionals believe Apple laptops, tablets, and smartphones are very to extremely vulnerable to Wi-Fi based attacks. This compares to 30% who believe Windows and Android devices are very to extremely vulnerable.

The Spiceworks survey show that IT professionals consider IoT [Internet of Things] devices the most vulnerable to Wi-Fi-based attacks, yet 50% of organizations have IoT devices connected to their Wi-Fi network. The findings indicate that although organizations are taking steps to increase Wi-Fi security, many IT professionals aren't confident in their ability to keep corporate data secure on IoT...

From Drone DJ:

The Skydio R1 drone has been years in the making but it is here now! Our sister site, Electrek, first wrote about it when one of the senior engineers left Tesla to join the then start-up drone company.

What makes the R1 drone unlike any other drone you’ve seen, is its advanced obstacle avoidance system, the Skydio Autonomy Engine. With 12 cameras, the R1 creates a 3D map of its surroundings and tries to predict the movements of its subject, i.e. a skier, runner, biker, up to 4 seconds into the future so that it can follow the subject while keeping it in the center of the frame and avoiding obstacles at the same time. Impossible you say? Wait until you watch the video...

How to connect your Apple TV to HomePod, use HomePod...

Terrific article from iMore’s Lory Gil. Long story short:

  • On Apple TV, go to home screen (this next step only works from the home screen).
  • On Apple TV remote, hold down pause button for 3 seconds or so.
  • When AirPlay menu appears, select your HomePod. This will route Apple TV audio to HomePod.

Now go play a movie. The audio should be coming out of your HomePod. If you are watching in front of your TV, this isn’t really ideal, but if you are moving around, perhaps working in the kitchen with a long view of the TV screen, this can be terrifically convenient.

Now that audio is piped into your HomePod, you can say things to HomePod Siri like:

  • Volume 60 (that sets the volume to 60%)
  • Pause (pauses the video playback)
  • Go back 20 seconds

Good stuff.

Analyst: Apple to ship 100 million 6.1-inch LCD...

In a note to clients — as noted by AppleInsider — KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicts that Apple will ship 100 million iPhones in the second half of 2018.

He thinks the built of those as coming from a new 6.1-inch, LCD smartphone that will be priced between $699 and $799. The analyst is unsure if this model will replace both the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, though he thinks it’s possible. However, since it will have an LCD screen, it will be less expensive than the OLED iPhone X.

Kuo thinks Apple will introduce at least three new smartphones this year, all of which will sport Face ID and ditch the home button. In addition to a successor to the iPhone X and the LCD model, Apple is also purportedly planning an iPhone X variant with a 6.5-inch OLED display.

Apple is in talks with China-backed Yangtze Memory Technologies to buy NAND flash chips, reports the Nikkei Asian Review (https://asia.nikkei.com/Business/Companies/Apple-in-talks-for-first-order-from-a-Chinese-chipmaker) It would be Apple's first-ever purchase from a Chinese memory chipmaker.

It’s not clear if Apple is under pressure from Beijing, but one industry insider tells Nikkei Asian Review that Chinese deals like this are sure to help the company boost its business in that country. Currently, no China-baed company is producing memory chips. Yangtze's first lines aren't set to begin until sometime this year.

How to listen to music on an HomePod

If there’s one thing the HomePod is great for, it’s listening to music. Here are your options on how to do this with Apple’s wireless speaker.

  • To hear something you’ll like, say “Hey Siri, play some music.” Apple Music learns your taste and uses it to choose which songs to play for you. To help Apple Music learn what you like, say “Hey Siri, I like this” when you hear a song you’d like to add to your preferences. 
  • How to listen to a song. Got some music in mind? Just ask. Say, for example, “Hey Siri, play the theme from La La Land” or “Hey Siri, play Lamar Kendrick’s newest album." You can also ask for songs and playlists from your iTunes library. To hear the same song as interpreted by other artists, say “Hey Siri, play the other version.”
  • To listen by artist, genre, activity, or mood, ask for a specific artist, or a genre of music such as Latin jazz. You can also ask for the vibe you want. For example, say “Hey Siri, play some party music,” or get...

Security researchers locate vulnerability in Skype...

This might be something that Microsoft wants to look into and fix.

The current version of Skype feature a security flaw that could let an attacker gain control of Mac, Windows, and Linux computers. The company has stated that it isn’t planning on fixing the flaw, at least for now, because it amounts to rewriting the entire app update installer.

The security flaw is in the app update installer, and if exploited, could let attackers gain administrator level access even if the victim is logged into their computer as a standard user. From there, they can copy and delete files, install other apps, access personal information, and more.

Microsoft was made aware of the security hole in September of 2017 and has been able to reproduce it on their own computers according to security researcher Stefan Kanthak:

The engineers provided me with an update on this case. They’ve reviewed the code and were able to reproduce the issue, but have determined that the fix...

KGI: Apple estimated to sell 100 million units of...

KGI continues to double-down on its claims on what the 2018 iPhone lineup will comprise. The 6.1-inch LCD iPhone will apparently resemble the iPhone X with a similar full-screen design but at a more accessible price for customers; the analyst expects this new iPhone to be priced to replace iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, as cheap as $699.

The LCD 6.1-inch iPhone will use slightly less premium components, such as an aluminium frame instead of stainless steel. Nevertheless, given that it looks like a top-end iPhone in style, KGI believes the lower entry point will make it Apple’s most popular 2018 device and see total sales around 100 million units.

Over The Moon has launched its sequel The Fall Part 2: Unbound on Mac, PlayStation4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC, and Linux platforms. It’s the sequel to the award-winning original game (not surprisingly called The Fall) the second chapter in a planned trilogy.

Here’s how the game is described: “The Fall Part 2: Unbound is a hybrid of haunting metroidvania exploration merged with brain teasing point-and-click adventure puzzles and a healthy dose of chilling hard sci-fi. This sequel picks up right where its predecessor left off as we follow the exploits of A.R.I.D., a rogue AI who’s rewritten its protocol to follow one rule: “save myself”. The new parameters of A.R.I.D.’s programming have allowed her the ability to possess new hosts including a posh, reality-divorced Butler, a sexy service Companion, and a mysterious combat drone known as One.’

At its annual meeting (held today), two Apple shareholder proposals weren't approved. Also, CEO Tim Cook downplayed a suggestion that the company might issue a special dividend to shareholders with some of the $285 billion in cash that the company is now able to bring back from overseas.

A proxy access measure sought reconsideration of the company's rules for shareholder nomination of directors, that currently say a group of no more than 20 shareholders have to hold a 3% stake to nominate. That measure failed with 67.8% against. Meanwhile, a call for a human rights committee that would report its oversight to the public failed with 94.4% opposed. 

Shareholders did approve four company-proposed measures, including a required "say on pay" vote for executive compensation.

LED light strips are nothing new; Philips has had them in its lineup of Hue lighting products for several years. But up until this time, LED light strips have been rather pricy — the Hue strip starts at $90 — and have often been incompatible with Apple’s HomeKit home automation framework. Koogeek has introduced the 2 meter long (78.7 inches) LS-1 LED light strip that works with Apple HomeKit, can offer 16 million choices of color, and has a suggested retail price of just $38.99. Apple World Today had an opportunity to try out the LS1 LED Light Strip and will definitely be a popular item once it’s available on Amazon

Like most LED light strips, the LS1 has a deceptively simple design. It uses a  flexible silicone strip with 60 5050 SMD LEDs embedded in it, with a 3M adhesive tape on the back. Not only can the strip...
