Verizon Now Intercepting Calls From Note 7 Users...

Following Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 combust-a-phone mess and product recall, Verizon went from “We won’t do anything,” to “OK, let’s brick them,” and now is at the “Seriously people, give us the phone before you hurt yourself” stage. Verizon’s latest move is to reroute calls from Note 7 phones to customer service to convince users to exchange their phone for something less flammable.

Review: Prynt, the fun instant printer for the...

Life can be remarkably circular at times. Back in the day, people used Polaroid instant cameras to take a photo and then get an instant print. These days, we all have a camera in our pocket that allows us to instantly view our photos on a bright, hi-res screen – but people do sometimes still want instant prints, leading to the creation of Polaroid-style instant printers.

Polaroid make their mobile printer, the ZIP, at around $130. This is a thermal printer, meaning there’s no ink to worry about, printing instead onto special Zink paper. The Prynt uses the same technology and paper, but with an added twist: when using the app, people can view your prints as Live Photos …

Law firm tries to stop Apple from selling iPhones...

MLG Automotive Law (mlgautomotivelaw) — a Newport Beach, California-based firm concentrating on representing the legal interests of businesses and people in the automotive industry — has filed a class action lawsuit against Apple, seeking to enjoin the company from selling further iPhones until it installs texting and driving safeguards.  The lawsuit, Julio Ceja v. Apple Inc. , was filed Tuesday in Los Angeles County Superior Court.

The lawsuit alleges that Apple puts profit before consumer safety. According to the filing, the company has had the technology to prevent texting and driving since 2008 – and even received a patent on it in 2014 – but refuses to use it 

"Texting and driving has become one of the most serious issues that confronts all of us on a daily basis," said Jonathan Michaels, the founding member of MLG Automotive Law. "The number of people who...

The Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) officially adopted Bluetooth 5 as the latest version of the Bluetooth core specification. Consumers can expect to see products supporting the spec in two to six months. It should appear in upcoming Macs, iPads, and iPhones.

Key updates to Bluetooth 5 include longer range, faster speed, and larger broadcast message capacity, as well as improved interoperability and coexistence with other wireless technologies, according to Mark Powell, executive director of the Bluetooth SIG. 

He adds that feature updates include four times range, two times speed, and eight times broadcast message capacity. Longer range powers whole home and building coverage, for more robust and reliable connections. Higher speed enables more responsive, high-performance devices. Increased broadcast message size increases the data sent for improved and more context relevant solutions.

The U.S. Supreme Court has declined to review a Federal Circuit finding that it is jurisdictionally barred under the high court’s Cuozzo decision from considering if the Patent Trial and Appeal Board erred when it invalidated two SightSound Technology patents challenged by Apple on grounds Apple didn't explicitly raise, reports Law360.

In 2011 SightSound Technologies, whose parent company is General Electric, sued Apple for patent infringement. The company claims Apple infringed, among others, patent 5,191,573 for a “method for transmitting a desired digital video or audio signal.” SightSound claims that iTunes and the Apple TV, among other products, infringe on the patent. The company wants a financial settlement “adequate to compensate for Apple’s infringement of the Patents-in-Suit,” as well as court costs.

SightSound has spent years in patent lawsuits with Apple, CDNow, Bertelsmann, Napster and others. The...

Flying with AirPods

Zac Hall, 9to5Mac:

AirPods are a totally different product than my wireless Bose QC35s which have longer battery life and active noise cancellation not to mention superior audio quality, but AirPods were easily preferred as my travel earphones after real world testing for a few reasons.

Nice detailed overview on pros and cons (mostly pros) of flying with AirPods. I do tend to travel with noise canceling over-the-ear headphones, but Zac makes the AirPods sound like a reasonable alternative, especially if packing space is tight.

Good read.

Rene Ritchie, commenting on the September iPhone 7 rollout:

Where before you could press firmly on your iPhone 6s display to trigger 3D Touch and get a reassuring “thump” in response, with iPhone 7 you get a broader, deeper, more sophisticated range of responses.

Some of them are delightfully subtle: Spin through a date or time picker and you can feel a slight “tock” for each number. Thumb across alternate characters on the keyboard and you can feel a little “tick” for each accent.

Then this discussion of Nintendo Switch haptics, from the NeoGaf forums:

Music streaming now has more paying subscribers than...

Music Business Worldwide:

According to a recent report from the much-respected Midia, there were 100.4m people paying for music streaming subscriptions at the end of 2016.

The company’s Mark Mulligan estimates that around 43m of these were subscribing to Spotify, with 20.9m signed up to Apple Music, 6.9m to Deezer, 4.5m to Napster and just 1m to TIDAL.

The rest of the 100.4m subs were made up of other services, suggest Midia’s numbers.

And:

Meanwhile, Netflix is currently forecasting that it finished 2016 with 87.8m paying subscribers – a 24% jump on its Q4 2015 number (70.8m.)

Both are still growing by leaps and bounds, but music streaming, at the moment, is growing more quickly.

AT&T discontinues 2G network, ends cellular...

It’s time to move on where AT&T, the first-gen iPhone and cellular service are concerned.

On Monday, AT&T announced that its 2G wireless network was officially shut down on January 1, 2017, following four years of planning for its discontinuation.

This means that the 2G network available to the original first-gen iPhone will no longer receive cellular service from the AT&T network.

The shutdown appears to have affected relatively few people, as there were few if any vocal complaints from first-gen iPhone owners when the service was discontinued two weeks ago. Still, from here on in, customers who keep the device as part of a collection will only be able to use it on Wi-Fi.

Originally released in June of 2007 and discontinued in 2008, the first iPhone was made obsolete by Apple back in 2013, and it has not received software updates since the 2009 release of iPhone OS 3, later renamed iOS 3.

Even though the 2G network was shut...

Rumor: Apple planning iPhone 6 battery replacement...

If you’ve been having troubles with your iPhone 6 battery, Apple may have a warranty program en route to help out.

An unconfirmed rumor has stated that Apple may be preparing a battery replacement program for the iPhone 6 handset, much the same as the popular iPhone 6s battery replacement program.

When Apple announced the 6s program, it said that only a ‘very small number’ of 6s units were affected, all of which were manufactured during a two-month period, making it seem unlikely on the face of it that the same issue could affect an earlier model.

The iPhone 6s battery replacement program became controversial for its $149 charge for fixes to a separate iPhone 6 Plus ‘Touch Disease‘ issue which it said was caused by repeated impact damage.

Apple generally hasn’t charged for similar repairs to out-of-warranty products, so this came as something of a shock to many users.

We’ll have additional details about the potential iPhone 6 battery...

Free-to-play games often look appealing, but it’s difficult to know at a glance whether the business model is insidious and fun ruining, or reasonable and worth pumping a few bucks into. With Freemium Field Test, we’ll take a recent free-to-play iOS game, put it through its paces, and let you know if it’s really worth your time (and money).

Angry Birds mania is seemingly past its prime, although the nearly $350 million worldwide gross of last year’s The Angry Birds Movie seemingly ensures that the franchise will keep hanging around for a while. In recent years, however, rather than keep iterating upon the familiar pull-and-fling formula (aside from the solid Angry Birds 2), Rovio has mostly delivered an array of spinoffs that bear little resemblance to...

It appears that the Indian government may have found a creative way to agree to Apple’s request for financial incentives to manufacture iPhones within the country – without being seen to give special treatment to one particular company. Apple had asked for a number of concessions, including a 15-year import duty on iPhone components, manufacturing equipment and consumables.

Earlier reports had described conflicts between different government departments with differing objectives. The IT and industry ministries wanted to agree to Apple’s terms, as it would be a big win to sign up the world’s largest company to its Made In India program, while the finance ministry was reluctant to lose the import duty revenue.

Two reports today suggest that the government may have found a creative way out of the...

I read many books to my kiddos when they were young, and I love reading to my granddaughter. If you’re a parent or grandparent, I hope you do, too. However, if there are times when that’s inconvenient, you can have the Apple TV handle the job thanks to iBooks StoryTime.

It’s a free app aimed at the preschooler who is just starting to learn to read. iBooks StoryTime lets you open a virtual book on any HDTV that’s connected to an Apple TV. A narrator reads the stories while virtual pages automatically turn on-screen. Words are highlighted on-screen as they’re read aloud. In some cases there are sound effects. If you start a book, and don’t finish it, StoryTime picks up where you left off the next time you open it.

You can turn off Read-Aloud narration if you want to read the book to your child yourself. You can even use the Siri Remote to swipe between pages.

Apple’s AirPods launch wasn’t exactly smooth.

But Apple started shipping AirPods in late December, just before the holidays, and has since captured 26 percent of the wireless headphone market. Apple CEO Tim Cook said the earphones are a “runaway success” and that Apple is making them as fast as possible.

US Antitrust Agency Sues Qualcomm Over Patent...

Qualcomm shares have plunged after the U.S. Federal Trade Commission filed a lawsuit against the company on Tuesday, accusing the company of using "anticompetitive" tactics to maintain its monopoly on a key semiconductor used in mobile phones. Reuters reports: The FTC, which works with the Justice Department to enforce antitrust law, said that San Diego-based Qualcomm used its dominant position as a supplier of certain phone chips to impose "onerous" supply and licensing terms on cellphone manufacturers and to weaken competitors. Qualcomm said in a statement that it would "vigorously contest" the complaint and denied FTC allegations that it threatened to withhold chips in order to collect unreasonable licensing fees. In its complaint, the FTC said the patents that Qualcomm sought to license are standard essential patents, which means that the industry uses them widely and they are supposed to be licensed on fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory terms. The FTC complaint also...

If you still happen to use an iPhone 2G, it may be time to upgrade or list it on eBay. Mac Rumors reports: Few people appear to have been using the original iPhone as there were no complaints from iPhone owners two weeks ago when the network was shuttered, but going forward, customers who keep the device as part of a collection will only be able to use it on WiFi.

Mr. Burrough argued that Steve Jobs ruled with ever-shifting chaos, where product triumphed over hierarchy. Under Tim Cook, he said, Apple is siloed, smooth, and essentially complacent. Former Apple wunderkind Tony Fadell coincidentally tweeted just last week that Steve Jobs did not manage through conflict, and others have taken issue with Mr. Burrough, too. The reality is that any one person’s perspective never tells the whole tale, but his opinions make for an interesting read. You can...

The Federal Trade Commission has filed a complaint in federal district court charging Qualcomm Inc. with using anticompetitive tactics to maintain its monopoly in the supply of a key semiconductor device used in cell phones and other consumer products.

Qualcomm is the world’s dominant supplier of baseband processors – devices that manage cellular communications in mobile products. The FTC alleges that Qualcomm has used its dominant position as a supplier of certain baseband processors to impose “onerous and anticompetitive supply and licensing terms on cell phone manufacturers and to weaken competitors.” The FTC says the company “extracted exclusivity from Apple in exchange for reduced patent royalties.” Qualcomm is accused for precluding Apple from sourcing baseband processors from Qualcomm’s competitors from 2011 to 2016.

  • The Apple Store Palo Alto (CA) is currently undergoing renovations due to an early December smash-and-grab burglary.
  • The "glass cube" 5th Avenue Apple Store in NYC will be closed starting on Jan. 20 for renovations.
  • Verizon is planning to take drastic measures to stop people who are still using their Samsung Galaxy Note 7 smartphones.

AT&T Officially Kills Off 2G, Original iPhone...

Farewell, 2G. AT&T officially ended 2G support on its network as of the first of the year, and it’s a safe bet almost no one noticed. Dropping 2G support means older phones like the original iPhone won’t work for phone calls any more, and it also opens wireless spectrum that’ll eventually benefit LTE.

App Store prices will be higher in the U.K. to...

The Brexit vote is beginning to have an impact on iOS users in the U.K.

Apple is raising App Store prices by about 25 percent to reflect exchange rate fluctuations following the Brexit vote in the U.K. According to 9to5Mac, $0.99 apps in the US will cost £0.99 in the U.K., up from £0.79. An app previously priced at the £1.49 tier will now costs £1.99. Prices in the U.K. App Store already include a 20 percent VAT sales tax.

In-app purchases will also be affected, for example the “All Worlds” upgrade in Super Mario Run is going from £7.99 to £9.99. However, subscriptions will remain the same price for the time being. Apple notified iOS developers that the pricing surge will occur in the next seven days.

Microsoft Solitaire Collection: My new iOS app...

I never thought I'd say this, but I'm addicted to a Microsoft app. No, it's not one of the Office apps, so don't get worried... It's a game -- the Microsoft Solitaire Collection (free with in-app purchase). 

For those of us who were forced at one time in our lives to use or support Microsoft Windows, solitaire is nothing new. I recall playing it on a Windows 3.1 machine back in the early 1990s, and it has been a venerable time-killer ever since. This marks the first time that Microsoft has brought its solitaire card games to iOS, and the company has done an excellent job with the app.

There are five solitaire games built into the collection: Klondike, Spider, FreeCell, Pyramid and TriPeaks. Klondike is the old, traditional game that's been around forever, while Pyramid and TriPeaks are relatively new to the Microsoft Solitaire world. Each has a different set...

Roku is today launching an updated mobile app that introduces a redesigned user interface to make content easier to access alongside a new ‘What’s On’ guide that serves up recommendations on what to watch.

Roku says the aim of the redesign is to provide easier one-tap access to the most commonly used features. That includes the ability to start a stream with one tap of a channel from the app’s main screen, and a new navigation bar will let you pull up other features you might need quick access to including search, the remote control, and options for sending content to your TV. There’s also a redesigned remote control feature included.

Safari Users Unable to Play Newer 4K Video On...

It appears Google recently turned on VP9 codec on YouTube for delivering 4K video. However, because of this, Safari users are unable to watch videos uploaded to the service since early December in full 4K resolution. From a report: Specifically, YouTube appears to be storing video on its servers using either the more efficient VP9 codec or the older H.264 codec. Safari only supports the latter, which explains why recently uploaded 4K videos are only able to be viewed in up to 1440p. Funnily enough, the same videos can be streamed by Safari in native 4K as long as they're embedded in another website, suggesting that the VP9 codec support requirement only applies to videos viewed directly on YouTube's website. Until Apple updates Safari to support the VP9 codec, Mac users who want to access newer 4K video on YouTube in native 2160p resolution are advised to use a different browser.John Gruber of DaringFireball writes, "I'm curious what Google's thinking is here. My guess: a subtle...

Evernote overhauls its iOS app with focus on speed...

In its quest to make you more organized and productive, popular note-taking app Evernote grew a bit bloated. The app’s speed, or lack thereof, is a common thread in user reviews. Evernote just released a redesigned iOS app that aims to address those complaints, plus make your notes a little easier on the eyes.

The first thing you’ll notice when you launch Evernote version 8.0 is the new home screen, which picks up right where you left off with your most recent notes at the ready. The note preview allows you to see which notes have a lot of content and which contain just text. Then there’s the new navigation bar pinned to the bottom of the app, where you can jump into all notes, search, see shortcuts, or view your account. A green plus icon in the center of that new menu bar lets you immediately start a new note, and a long press on that icon lets you swipe up to capture an audio note, a...
