Review: Urban Armor Gear Folio for iPhone 6 Plus

Urban Armor Gear's Folio ($40) case for iPhone 6 Plus comes in two colors, red and black, which are sold as two separate models called Rogue Folio and Scout Folio. Unlike most wallet folio-style cases, UAG's Folio offers a hefty amount of protection — the case meets military drop test standards. UAG's Folio also offers button coverage, and a significant lip on the case provides screen protection even when the folio's cover is off. Inside the folio cover is a slot that can hold three credit cards. The folio cover uses a magnetic strip to remain closed, which works well. Though we only reviewed the iPhone 6 Plus version of the case, it's worth noting the Folio is also available for iPhone 6 at the same price.{/exp:char_limit}

All William Gibson’s futures

Medium:

Cyberspace may be ancient history for Gibson, but how our future unrolls before us has once again captured his attention. After sticking fairly close to the present for his last half-dozen novels, The Peripheral is Gibson’s most wide open and far-ranging adventure in decades. Multiple futures, near and far, collide. Characters zip back and forth in time, conspiracy theories come true, and an apocalypse unfolds in slow motion, with all the inexorability of a slowly rising tide.

I’ve been a hug fan of Gibson’s since I first read Neuromancer as a kid. It’s is still the first and only book that blew my mind so much that, when I read in pretty much one sitting, I immediately turned back to page one and started reading it again.

EFF Spearheads Safer Web Initiative


The Electronic Frontier Foundation has announced a nonprofit organization that will aim to secure the entire Web. Let's Encrypt, starting in summer 2015, will offer free server certificates to help websites transition from HTTP to the more secure HTTPS protocol. EFF is partnering with Akamai, Mozilla, Cisco, iDenTrust and University of Michigan researchers. HTTPS has been around for years, but "certificate management and TLS in general tends to be a bit of a black art," said Stephen Ludin, chief architect at Akamai.

Now we're turning to similar iPhone add-ons called the Car Vent Mount ($20) and the Reflective Armband ($30), which are designed to be paired with ZeroChroma's FluxStand-equipped VarioEdge or Vortex cases. Unlike the company's Slide-Mounts, which were so thin and seemingly simple that their $30 asking price was hard to justify, each of these accessories is closer to right-priced; the only question is whether you'll like the cases that work with them.{/exp:char_limit}

Catching the catch on camera

New York Times:

Those who saw Odell Beckham Jr.’s acrobatic catch live on Sunday night at MetLife Stadium probably could not fully appreciate it in real time. Those who saw it on video — millions, once the awe spread on social media — were dazzled by his seemingly impossible body control. And those who saw still photographs of the catch might have wondered, how did the photographer capture that?

Jeffrey Furticella, a picture editor on the Sports desk at The New York Times, reached out to some of the photographers who shot the catch on Sunday night.

As a photographer, I always love to read the stories behind the images.

Review: Griffin Slim Folio and Survivor All-Terrain...

Relatively few iPad Air 2 cases have hit the market early in the device's lifespan, as companies likely had a short time to adjust to the design changes in Apple's thinner full-sized iPad. Griffin has released a few options, though, including the Slim Folio ($30) and Survivor All-Terrain ($80). Slim Folio is a very thin fabric case that actually fits both the iPad Air 2 and original iPad Air — it has holes for the camera and microphone locations on both devices. Survivor All-Terrain is a beefy rubber-and-plastic case solely for iPad Air 2, similar to the other products in Griffin's Survivor line. The case offers complete button coverage, as well as screen and port protection. A multi-layer case, Survivor All-Terrain is weather-resistant and military spec-tested to be safe from two-meter drops onto concrete. The case also comes with a detachable stand.{/exp:char_limit}

The Mac Observer Spin: It's good that the FCC is planning now for the inevitable legal fights over Net Neutrality. Hopefully the final outcome is a system that favors the free flow of information and not just the corporate desires of the Internet Service Providers.

Apple kicks off a two-week fundraising campaign for RED, the charity started by U2 lead singer Bono and Bobby Shriver. It includes 25 partnering app-makers, from Angry Birds to Toca Boca, which will donate all proceeds from purchases of their apps or in-app upgrades. In a statement, Apple CEO Tim Cook said: "Apple is a proud supporter of (RED) because we believe the gift of life is the most important gift anyone can give. For eight years, our customers have been helping fight AIDS in Africa by funding life-saving treatments which are having a profoundly positive impact. This year we are launching our biggest fundraising push yet with the participation of Apple's retail and online stores, and some of the brightest minds in the App Store are lending their talents to the effort as well."

There’s a lot to be said for the A8 processor in the current iPhone 6 and 6 Plus handsets.

4K video playback on the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus was first discovered by the developers behind WALTR, a Mac app that’s designed to make it easy to upload and convert any music or video file to an iPad or iPhone for native playback.

Report: App Store downloads surge to highest ever in...

According to the latest data from Fiksu, the launch of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus alongside iOS 8 accounted for a massive increase and an all-time high for app downloads. Specifically, the report points to a 42 percent increase from the previous month among the top 200 free iOS apps tracked by the company. Around 7.8 million downloads for the top 200 free apps accounted for a 42 percent increase over September and a 39 percent increase year-over-year.

“While recent indexes have shown a steady stream of escalating costs, the October index numbers validate another important trend: the increasing importance of apps to consumers,” said Micah Adler, CEO of Fiksu. “Mobile marketers must start thinking strategically about their marketing tactics over the...

Apple defends safety of Siri use while driving after...

 

Apple has responded to a University of Utah study which criticized the safety of using Siri while driving, stating that it didn’t test the company’s in-car versions, Siri Eyes Free and CarPlay.

Of the six speech-recognition systems tested by researchers, Siri was found to be the worst for driver distraction. The study hooked up drivers to heart-rate monitors and other equipment designed to measure the degree of stress experienced by drivers while carrying out a range of voice-command tasks, giving each system a distraction rating from 1 (best) to 5 (worst) …

Hands-on with Pinć, a $99 VR headset for iPhone 6 w...

Last week I met up with the people behind Pinć (Pinch), an under development VR headset that utilizes Minority Report-style user interfaces opposed to the mostly gaming experiences we’ve seen thus far from the competition. There are also a few other big differentiators for Pinc: it doubles as an iPhone case, uses hand gestures tracked by the iPhone’s camera for input, and includes a full SDK for developers built on Unity.

Pinć utilizes a wireless ring (or pinchers) on each hand that allow users to navigate with touchscreen-like hand gestures when tracked by the device’s camera. The experience allows for a much more intuitive controls familiar to touchscreen users and seems to make a lot more sense for immersive virtual reality than a controller or...

If you are planning on purchasing a new iPhone at Virgin Mobile this holiday shopping season, you are all but out of luck. While it somehow still sells the over three-year-old iPhone 4s, the prepaid carrier has not added the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus to its smartphone lineup and lists last year’s iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c models as out of stock.

Virgin Mobile claims that both the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c are “temporarily out of stock,” although neither smartphone has been available through its website for quite some time. Meanwhile, Sprint sister company Boost Mobile carries the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c and iPhone 4s with no...

KGI: Apple to sell over 71M iPhones in holiday...

KGI Research’s Ming-Chi Kuo, one of the few analyst/firms with a respectable record on Apple forecasts, updated its iPhone sales expectation numbers this weekend for the holiday quarter and Q1 of 2015.

Strong iPhone shipments in 4Q14. We forecast overall iPhone shipments will surge 82% QoQ to 71.5mn units in 4Q14, given robust demand for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The iPhone 6 Plus supply shortage implies not only robust demand, but also confirms our concerns regarding constraints within the supply chain. We believe 4Q14 iPhone shipments will be stronger if supply chain constraints are eased.

Kuo notes that the iPhone 5c and 4s which are still sold in emerging markets [like...

HandBrake Open Source video transcoder v0.10...

The developers of Handbrake just announced the 0.10 update to their extremely popular and useful Open Source video transcoding product. Originally focused on ripping DVDs, the product now can be used for transcribing many different types of files/codecs to almost any other. Today’s headliner updates include H.265 and VP8 encoding.

  • The LibAV AAC encoder is now the default as FAAC has been removed.
    • This encoder is adequate for most, but until it improves a bit further, we have enabled support for the FDK-AAC encoder also.
      • This FDK option is a temporary measure until the LibAV encoder improves.
      • Note that FDK-AAC is much slower and will likely bottleneck the encode process, but will produce better quality audio.

How iPads are making airports less terrible

The Verge:

Over the next 18 months OTG will install 6,000 iPads on tables, bars, and stations near waiting areas throughout United Airline’s terminal at Newark. Flashing your boarding pass in front of the iPad’s camera pulls up your United profile, with flight information, travel updates, and frequent flier miles. The program, which is opt-in, learns your preferences from your past purchases and recommends things it thinks you might want to buy. If you never buy the orange juice, it will start showing you other options; if you keep buying steak frites, it will show you steak sandwiches.

Interesting changes coming to the airport experience.

You Should Play: Monster Strike is a delightful...

These days, keeping up with games can be a full-time job. So how do you separate the signal from the noise, the wheat from the chaff, the Temple Runs from the Temple Jumps? Allow us to help by regularly selecting a game You Should Play.

Until the Pokémon Company actually releases the kind of Pokémon game for iOS that fans have been begging for, other developers will keep making games that try to approximate the addictive qualities of the massive monster-battling franchise on the mobile platform.

Monster Strike obviously owes a great deal to the Japanese franchise: the game tasks you with collecting and powering up anime-stylized battling monsters. Like Pokémon, these (sometimes) adorable monsters evolve, and it has RPG qualities like turn-based combat and buffs.

FoundSounds for iPhone

My sincere thanks to FoundSounds for sponsoring The Loop’s RSS feed this week.FoundSounds is a unique new mobile app blurring the line between a social network and a collaborative art project. The premise is simple: if you find a sound you like, record it and share it with the world. Recordings are geotagged, and you can browse them by scrolling through a timeline or exploring a map. You can also construct sound collages that create intriguing sonic geographies. If enough sounds have been recorded in your area, consider taking a sound walk, which allows you to listen to recordings made near you. Walking past a concert venue would allow you to hear previous performances from that location, while passing by a new building would trigger the sounds of its construction. The vision of FoundSounds is to create a space where people can listen to sounds they might not normally hear. FoundSounds...
