Sqoop lists most invention companies of 2016 based...

Sqoop, a “news discovery network,” has released a list of the “most inventive companies of 2016 based on patent activity.” Apple places 11th on the list. 

This year’s list of top grant recipients is similar to last years, with some notable changes:

  • Amazon, which has seen significant media activity around some of its patents, including what has been nicknamed a flying blimp fulfillment center, was perhaps the biggest mover in the top 40, ascending from 26 to 14, and Intel moved up five 
  • Xerox, Blackberry, Broadcom, and Ericsson dropped off the list from 2015 to 2016.
  • New to the list for 2016 are GlobalFoundries, Huawei, Hyundai, Texas Instruments, and Boe Technology Group.
  • Roughly half of the patents are granted to companies headquartered outside the United States.

Sqoop reports that Apple was granted 2,115 patents in 2016. The top 10 (and their number of granted patents...

Apple is secretive about Project Titan, its alleged car project. However, considering the recent hiring spree of automotive experts, patent publications related to connected car technology, and the $10 billion spent on research and development, Apple is expected to offer connected, autonomous and shared mobility solution, opines Frost & Sullivan's, a research group.

"Apple has a long way ahead before its autonomous vehicle becomes a reality. With automotive and technology companies working together to build autonomous cars, Apple is expected to face fierce competition when it launches its product(s)/service(s)," says Frost & Sullivan Mobility Research Analyst Ajay Natteri.

In addition, growth could be hindered in initial years by customer fear of fully autonomous vehicles, existing laws for autonomous car use and accident liability issues.

Rocket Internet Venture and the largest online retailer for Latin America, Linio, observing that the price for the same tech items varied significantly from country to country, even in neighboring states, conducted the 2017 Tech Price Index in order to better understand this worldwide phenomenon. 

The research took into account the various aspects which alter the cost. They presented their findings, including the wide-ranging costs for iPhone products, in the 2017 Tech Price Index. In the case of the iPhone, Linio looked at various iPhone models without the cost of phone service, in all online providers for the country, as well as at least four biggest retailers in the country's five largest cities. The same process was followed for all items in the Price Index study.

Headphone Users Rejoice: Samsung Reportedly Not...

An anonymous reader writes: Contrary to previous reports, Samsung's upcoming flagship Galaxy S8 smartphone will come with a headphone jack, unlike the new iPhone 7 and 7 Plus and several other Android smartphones. The news comes from both Sammobile and Android Police. The Next Web reports: "Both Sammobile and Android Police are today reporting that Samsung is not actually killing the headphone jack. Sammobile, appears to be retracting its own report last month suggesting the jack would be dropped thanks to recent case renders, while Android Police has independently confirmed that the S8 will maintain the 3.5mm jack through its own source. In related news, Samsung's display unit may have also just given us our first good look at the S8. While there's a good chance the phone in the video is a generic model (it appears to be a render, rather than a physical object), as CNET points out, it looks an awful lot like the leaks we've seen from the S8 so far. There are also a few curious...

I’ve played ROME: Total War on iPad, and it’s an amazing conversion to a touch interface. Feral and its developers did a remarkable job. Barbarian Invasion was a terrific expansion of the original game, too, and I can’t wait for the iPad launch to suck ever more hours out of my life.

DONKEY.APP for iPhone and Apple Watch Recreates Bill...

Can you kick it old school enough to remember DONKEY.BAS? It was one of the first racing games on DOS, and it was coded by a young tech exec named Bill Gates. Maybe you’ve heard of him. In any event, XVision has recreated this game on iPhone and Apple Watch, and they call it DONKEY.APP. It’s a, “super simple but frustratingly hard retro arcade game, inspired by Bill Gates’ one-and-only DOS game.” The player is a old-fashioned race car, only there are beasts of burden standing on the road. The player taps to change lanes to avoid the beasts, making it a game all about precise timing. It’s not particularly easy, either. Retro gaming is all the rage, and you can revisit this slice of tech history for US$0.99. I’d love to know your thoughts.

Rumor: the iPhone 8 will have ‘highest level of dust...

Apple’s “iPhone 8” will feature “the highest level of dust and water resistance,” reports the Korea Herald, quoting unnamed “multiple sources.” The upcoming smartphone will purportedly sport an IP68 rating, the highest level of weather protection that can handle submersion for 30 minutes in 1.5 meters of water. 

Regarding other iPhone 8 speculation, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has said that Apple will launch an all-new iPhone with a 5.8-inch OLED panel in 2017, but that he smartphone's actual active area will be a smaller 5.1 to 5.2 inches. He also thinks the iPhone 8 will sport a glass casing with wireless charging.

Other rumors about the iPhone 8 — which could be dubbed the “iPhone 10” since 2017 is the Apple smartphone’s 10th anniversary— say it will come with a curved OLED screen, wireless charging, a faster A11 processor, and no Home button. The Home button function, as...

The never-ending Apple-Samsung legal brouhaha...

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit has reopened the never-ending Apple lawsuit accusing Samsung of copying the iPhone's design, according to Law360. This comes just over a month after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled Samsung may not have to pay all its profits from the smartphones found to infringe Apple’s design patents.

In a one-paragraph order, the appeals court reinstated Samsung’s appeal and vacated a 2015 Federal Circuit decision that the Korean company owed Apple $399 million for infringing patents that cover parts of the iPhone design. In December, the Supreme Court tossed out an appeals court ruling that said the South Korean company had to pay a $399 million penalty to its American rival for copying key iPhone designs.

The justices in their 8-0 ruling sent the case back to the lower court for further proceedings. The court held that a patent violator doesn’t always have to hand over its entire...

Neon does away with familiar elements like tabs in favor of bubbles that float at the edge of your display.

US Appeals Court Revives Antitrust Lawsuit Against...

iPhone app purchasers may sue Apple over allegations that the company monopolized the market for iPhone apps by not allowing users to purchase them outside the App Store, leading to higher prices, a U.S. appeals court ruled. From a report on Reuters: The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruling revives a long-simmering legal challenge originally filed in 2012 taking aim at Apple's practice of only allowing iPhones to run apps purchased from its own App Store. A group of iPhone users sued saying the Cupertino, California, company's practice was anticompetitive. Apple had argued that users did not have standing to sue it because they purchased apps from developers, with Apple simply renting out space to those developers. Developers pay a cut of their revenues to Apple in exchange for the right to sell in the App Store.

Review: Dreampad, the Bluetooth pillow speaker with...

Just when you thought there wasn’t much left that hasn’t already been gadgetized, along comes the Bluetooth pillow …

Dreampad is a modern take on a very old idea: a speaker designed to be heard through a pillow, so you can listen without disturbing your partner. But it’s not just a Bluetooth speaker embedded in a pillow – it uses a form of direct-transmission sound known as intrasound. This is the technology used by bone-conduction devices sometimes used to allow profoundly deaf people to hear.

The use of intrasound technology is at once Dreampad’s greatest strength and biggest weakness, as we’ll see …

Sanho HyperDrive Thunderbolt 3 USB-C hub: A big hit...

Rather than buying a bucketful of dongles to give the 2016 MacBook Pro the same ports as the previous MacBook Pro models, almost 18,000 backers have pledged almost $1.6 million toward a Kickstarter campaign that does it all with one small hub. The HyperDrive from Sanho Corporation plugs into two Thunderbolt 3 ports on the new MacBook Pro and gives the user HDMI, USB 3.1 (two), microSD/SD, Thunderbolt 3 and USB-C ports in return.

There are three days left in this campaign, with just a handful of devices left at a $69 pre-order level. The HyperDrive is expected to ship in March, and will come in either silver or space gray to match your MacBook Pro. Even at the expected retail price of $99, the device is less expensive and certainly better looking than a tangle of dongles. Check out the specs:

Google's adding native Chrome support for FLAC...

Google is adding a little treat for audiophiles in the next version of Chrome. Chrome 56, which is expected to roll out by the end of January, is coming with native support for FLAC (Free Lossless Audio Codec) audio files meaning you can play the high-quality sound files directly in the browser, as first noticed by 9to5Google.

Chrome isn’t the only browser rolling native FLAC support into its feature set. Mozilla is also adding FLAC support to Firefox 51, which is scheduled for mainstream release around January 24.

Korg’s Gadget music production app combines an ever expanding collection of synthesizers and drum machines with “all-in-one” recording features. While there are some IAPs that get in the way of unlocking the complete collection, it is one of the more interesting and useful arsenals of sound sources on the App Store. Ahead of NAMM 2017, Korg has announced the once iOS only synth suite will soon be making its way to Mac.

Security backdoor found in end-to-end encryption...

A security researcher has found a backdoor in the end-to-end encryption system used by the WhatsApp messaging service. The vulnerability would allow Facebook to read messages sent through the supposedly-secure system, as well as making it possible for the company to comply with court orders to make messages available to government bodies.

While end-to-end encryption would normally mean that not even the company operating the service can decrypt messages, only the intended recipient, the specific implementation used in WhatsApp includes a major security hole …

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled that iPhone users are free to sue Apple for its alleged App Store monopoly on iPhone apps, Reuters reports. This latest ruling resurrects a legal challenge that was originally filed back in 2012, which accused Apple of engaging in anticompetitive behavior by restricting iPhones to only run apps purchased from Apple’s own App Store, thereby artificially inflating the prices of apps by stifling market…

WhatsApp vulnerability could expose messages to...

When Facebook’s WhatsApp turned on end-end-end encryption in its messaging service last year, it was a big deal. As all eyes were glued on Apple’s fight with the FBI over unlocking the San Bernardino shooter’s iPhone, WhatsApp took a huge step toward protecting its users’ privacy by moving to encrypt all messages and calls being sent between its apps.

But a new report suggests it might not be as secure as users think. According to The Guardian, a serious vulnerability in WhatApp’s encryption could allow Facebook to intercept and read messages unbeknownst to the recipient, and only aware of by the sender if they have previously opted in to receive encryption warnings. The security flaw, which was discovered by...

Apple must face claims of monopoly in iPhone app...

An appeals court has ruled that Apple must face antitrust charges in a lawsuit that alleges that the company monopolized the market for iPhone apps.

The U.S. Court for Appeals for the Ninth Circuit reversed Thursday a decision by a lower court and ruled that the app buyers filing the lawsuit are direct purchasers of iPhone apps from Apple, rather than from app developers, and hence have standing to sue. Apple was a distributor of iPhone apps, selling them directly to buyers through its App Store, according to the court.

The proposed class-action lawsuit started in 2011 with the complaint changing several times.

The purchasers object to the 30 percent “surcharge” that they pay to Apple. The company collects 30 percent of the revenue of third-party apps on its store, with the balance going to the developer, in a closed system in which Apple controls which apps can run on an iPhone, according to court records.

Following a retest, Consumer Reports has given the 2016 MacBook Pro its recommendation.

The change comes after retests wherein the publication and Apple worked together. fter becoming aware of a Safari bug that may have impacted results, Consumer Reports recently started retesting on a newer build of macOS Sierra in which the bug was supposedly fixed.

Following the original tests, Consumer Reports cited that the notebook’s battery life was too varied to recommend the machines. Apple argued the point as well as the fact that the specific tests CR had run they uncovered an “obscure and intermittent” bug within Safari.

Today’s recommendation change is a result of a macOS Sierra software update. Consumer Reports found that the update did in fact fix the problems they incurred in earlier testing.

Consumer Reports offered the following comments:

With the updated software, the three MacBook Pros in our labs all performed well, with one model running...

How to disable LinkedIn birthdays in macOS Sierra...

If you find yourself in the same situation, there's a "Birthdays" calendar under the "Other" category in macOS Calendar. Uncheck or delete that one, as it’s one LinkedIn uses. You should also disable LinkedIn in your Contacts’ Preferences > Accounts category.

Macgo Blu-Ray Player, OWC drive lets you play Blu-...

Apple is never going to support Blu-ray playback on the Mac (the company wants you to buy/rent movies on iTunes), which is bad for those of us who are Blu-ray fans. 

There are various workarounds, but the simplest may be the combo of the US$48 Mac Blu-ray Player from Macgo and an US$130 Value Line Slim drive from OWC. Well, at least it's the simplest if you have a good Internet connection.

After inserting a Blu-ray disc and launching the Mac Blu-ray Player application, you'll be prompted to select your disc or a backed up .iso image. You have to be connected to the Internet for the application to decrypt the disc for watching -- which can be a bit inconvenient, but not a deal breaker. After the application scans the disc, it begins playback.

I tried the Mac Blu-ray Player and Value Line Slim combo on both a 27-inch iMac with 5K...
