Review: iDevices Wall Outlet

iDevices was one of the first manufacturers to get on board with Apple's HomeKit ecosystem, with the iDevices Switch outlet announced two years ago at CES 2015. The company later followed that up with the inexpensive HomeKit-enabled Thermostat and Socket light bulb adapter, along with Outdoor Switch, the first weatherproof HomeKit power outlet designed for use in outdoor environments. With its new Wall Outlet, iDevices goes back to its roots, essentially taking its expertise from Switch and building it into a standard installable North American wall outlet.

Create a real group experience for “unexpected delight.” AR can be an isolating experience. Apple has the power to revolutionize sectors from advertising to education IF it can unlock the magic of a group experience. By focusing on the way we experience events together, Apple could go beyond a multi-individual experience to create something revolutionary.

Bring something new to the game. AR isn't cutting-edge anymore, so Apple needs to change the purpose and experience of how people engage with it. PokemonGo covered the novelty of integrating AR with the...

∞ 1981 Nightline interview with Steve Jobs

The whole thing is fascinating, but the Apple/Steve part kicks in around 4:20. Love how they refer to him as Steven Jobs. It was before he was Steve to all of us.

Note: Someone sent this to me, but can’t for the life of me remember who. Was doing some heavy traveling when it came in. Apologies for the lack of a hat tip.

50 GB and 200 GB plans vanish from iCloud settings...

The iCloud storage plan settings on iPhone, iPad and Mac are acting a bit strangely at the moment. For some users, the panel loads but the $0.99/mo 50 GB and $2.99/mo 200 GB iCloud plans have vanished completely, leaving only the $9.99 1 TB and $19.99 2 TB options.

For other iCloud accounts, the storage settings panel simply doesn’t load at all, instead displaying an error. Apple has not announced any changes to iCloud storage tiers, so this is most likely a server-side bug …

The hot new Hip Hop producer that does everything on...

Wired, talking about Steve Lacy:

Last year, he was nominated for a Grammy for executive-producing and performing on the 2015 funk-R&B-soul album Ego Death, the third release from The Internet and Lacy’s first with the band. He’s a sought-after producer, featured on albums like J. Cole’s “4 Your Eyez Only” and Kendrick Lamar’s new “Damn.” Earlier in 2017, he released his first solo material, which he’s playing as part of the setlist for The Internet’s worldwide tour. (Somewhere in there he also graduated high school.) The only connection between his many projects? All that music is stored on his iPhone.

And on his process:

He paged through the drum presets in GarageBand for a while before picking a messy-sounding kit. With two thumbs, he tapped out a simple beat, maybe 30 seconds long. Then he went back to the Rickenbacker. He played a riff he’d stumbled on while tuning, recording it on a separate GarageBand track over top of the drums. Without even playing...

Apple to cut royalty rate payments to Imagination...

Apple will probably pay graphics chip designer Imagination Technologies just one third of its current royalty rate as the smartphone giant wind downs their supply deal over the next two years, according to estimates by the UBS research group — as noted by Reuters.

UBS analysts predicted that Imagination would become loss-making by fiscal 2019 without any Apple royalty contributions. They add that the British chip designer will have to consider potential cost-cutting moves to redress the balance.

According to the Financial Times (which requires a subscription), Apple plans to stop using Imagination Technologies intellectual property within two years, ending its royalty payments. The tech giant is working on its own...

A real old Mac Pro vs. the coming Mac Pro

Daniel Pasco, renegade polymath:

I use a 5k iMac for work and am interested in VR production and gaming. Some friends told me to build a dedicated Windows box and others suggested building a Hackintosh, but I was sure there was a better way to get what I wanted.

So I turned a 2009 Mac Pro I picked up off of Ebay for $1300 into a superb professional workstation, gaming, and VR platform, simply by adding an SSD drive and a new video card.

This is a pretty cool idea. Read Dan’s post to see how the machine stacks up as a VR platform (spoiler: very, very well).

But read on, as Dan shifts gears, focusing on the Apple’s coming Mac Pro:

I realized that the corner that Apple has painted us into is just another “sweet solution” (similar to Jobs proposal that we develop web apps for iPhone instead of native apps).

I can do the work that Apple feels is appropriate with a 5k iMac, but the massive pile of external disks and their power supplies stacked...

‘Bon Appétit’ shoots the annual May travel issue...

First, Condé Nast Traveler announced it had shot its first magazine cover with an iPhone 7 Plus. Now Bon Appétit, the publication where “food and culture meet,” says it’s done the same. 

The magazine shot the cover of its May travel issue using the Apple smartphone. Creative director Alex Grossman ventured to Oaxaca, Mexico's Tlacolula Market in search of a way to photograph the issue issue. With a dual-camera system and wide color capture, iPhone 7 Plus captured a beautiful image that reflects the way many of us take and share our travel pictures today, he says.

"The iPhone lens is how we look at photography now," says Grossman. "It changes the whole process and feel of a photo shoot, making it more intimate, less invasive, more nimble. We wanted to create something our reader would relate to."

New York Times: Why you should wait before buying...

Brian X. Chen:

When a splashy new smartphone hits the market, consumers often weigh whether to place an order right away or to wait and see how others react to the device.

But with the Galaxy S8, Samsung’s first major smartphone release since the spontaneously combusting Galaxy Note 7 was discontinued last year, there isn’t much of a debate. Your best bet is to wait to buy the roughly $750 device — not just for safety reasons, but also because other uncertainties surround it.

I just can’t help but wonder if this next bit had anything to do with the Times’ take:

Samsung declined to provide an early review unit of the Galaxy S8 to The New York Times

No matter the logic, this does feel a bit like spite. And Samsung, what were you thinking here? You gave a review unit to the Wall Street Journal, but not the Times?

A few weeks ago Blizzard announced the upcoming summertime release of StarCraft: Remastered, giving a facelift to the classic RTS and its beloved Brood War expansion. Alongside that announcement came other interesting news though: The original (not remastered) versions of both StarCraft and Brood War would be made free sometime in April, alongside a new 1.18 patch.

That time has come. Blizzard dropped the 1.18 patch late on Tuesday, adding in a borderless windowed mode, tweaking some back-end code, correcting some long-standing bugs, improving compatibility with Windows 10, and more.

Rumor: Apple to continue supplying Lightning to 3.5...

Apple seems likely to continue bundling a Lightning to 3.5mm headphone jack adapter with its new lineup of iPhones this fall. The inclusion, which was implemented with the release of the iPhone 7 last fall, was put into place to help ease the transition to a handset without a traditional 3.5 millimeter headphone jack.

The news is according to a research note out today from Barclays analyst Blayne Curtis who speculates that Apple will likely drop the complimentary adapter sometime in the future, possibly with the 2018 lineup.

Curtis offered the following comment in his notes:

Debate whether Lightning adapter stays in box, we believe it stays this year but goes away at some point, potentially in the 2018 model

Curtis’ research appears to originate from supply chain sources, the report noting that Apple supplier Cirrus Logic will act as a source for the bundled adapter.

Last fall, Apple included both a Lightning to 3.5 millimeter headphone jack...

System 7.0.1/early Macintosh emulator now available...

This is about as true a labor of Mac love and geekiness as it gets.

The cool cats over at the Internet Archive have worked out an in-browser emulation engine for early models of the Apple Macintosh.

While there are certainly predecessors to the computer desktop paradigm, the introduction of the Macintosh brought it to a mass market and in the 30 years since, it has been steadily adapted by every major computing platform and operating system.

The archive itself features a curated set of applications, games and operating systems from 1984 to 1989.

The story of the creation of the operating system and the Macintosh itself are covered in many collections at the Archive, including this complete run of Macworld magazine and these deep-dive Macintosh books.

The archive is a 40 megabyte download that features System 7.0.1 and a rather rich recreation of the MacOS experience of 1991.

Apple granted patent for ‘linked user accounts’

Apple has been granted a patent (number 9,626,720) for “linked user accounts” that would allow separate Apple ID user accounts to be linked into a group of linked user accounts so that content items assigned to each of the user accounts can be accessed by each user account in the group. 

Linking user accounts in this way allows the individual user accounts to share content items while also retaining their individual properties such as username, password, preference data, etc. This allows each user account to retain the content items assigned to the user account when the user account is unlinked from the group. 

According to the patent filing, linking user accounts can be restricted according to linking rules that dictate how many user accounts can be included in a group, when a user account can be added or removed from a group, etc. A master user account can set parameters restricting content items accessible to the user accounts in the group, as well as money spent...

PhotoSweeper is a fine companion to the Mac’s Photos...

I take photos. Lots of photos. I snap most of 'em with my iPhone 7s Plus (a great digital camera, by the way). My Photos library has approximately a million images (well, okay, I’m exaggerating). A lot of them are duplicates, or very similar, and should be trashed. But I'm too lazy to undertake the process manually.

Enter PhotoSweeper, a $9.99 photo finder for macOS 10.10 and higher. It works with Photos and Adobe Lightroom. The app helps you find and eliminate duplicate or similar images. Photos are compared regardless of their sizes or formats and are grouped by similarity. PhotoSweeper works quickly and efficiently, and is a great tool for taming your photo library and retrieving always-valuable disk space.

The interface is a breeze to use. It boasts a single screen that offers easy access to all features. Just drag and drop folders to allow PhotoSweeper to scan and find...
