Apple explains how ‘Hey Siri’ works using a Deep...

Apple has published a fascinating new entry in its Machine Learning Journal this month that explains how the voice-activated ‘Hey Siri’ detector works in detail. While many of these entries tend to be too in depth for the average reader (i.e. me), October’s entry from the Siri team includes several interesting (and understandable!) tidbits about what happens behind-the-scenes when you use ‘Hey Siri’ on your iPhone and Apple Watch.

Mac: Adobe Lightroom CC Update

After moving its photo management tools to the cloud with the debut of Lightroom CC in 2015, Adobe has updated the program’s interface and streamlined its tools for easier use. Incorporating elements of the “Project Nimbus” app that leaked out this summer, the Lightroom CC update expands cloud storage to 1 TB (way up from the measly 20 GB previously offered to Creative Cloud subscribers) for the same $10 monthly price, allowing users enough space to truly make use of cloud-based photo editing that stores both photos and edits for use from multiple devices. The app’s search function — powered by Adobe Sensei — uses machine learning to organize photos by recognizing and automatically tagging the content of images. Sharing also got an upgrade, including the ability to generate links to send directly or post to social media.

"Maybe It's a Piece of Dust"

An anonymous reader shares a report: I was in the Grand Central Station Apple Store for a third time in a year, watching a progress bar slowly creep across my computer's black screen as my Genius multi-tasked helping another customer with her iPad. My computer was getting its third diagnostic test in 45 minutes. The problem was not that its logic board was failing, that its battery was dying, or that its camera didn't respond. There were no mysteriously faulty innerworkings. It was the spacebar. It was broken. And not even physically broken -- it still moved and acted normally. But every time I pressed it once, it spaced twice. "Maybe it's a piece of dust," the Genius had offered. The previous times I'd been to the Apple Store for the same computer with the same problem -- a misbehaving keyboard -- Geniuses had said to me these exact same nonchalant words, and I had been stunned into silence, the first time because it seemed so improbable to blame such a core problem on such a...

Review: August Doorbell Cam Pro

August's popular Smart Lock was one of the first iOS-enabled and HomeKit-enabled door locks on the market, and upon entering its second generation, the Smart Lock was joined last year by August's first Doorbell Cam, expanding the company's lineup of home access products. This year August continues to improve its smart home solutions with new "Pro" versions of both its doorbell cam and smart lock. We'll be looking at both of these products this week, beginning with the company's new August Doorbell Cam Pro, which builds upon last year's original with floodlight illumination for the camera and other enhancements to video recording.

He was 53.

Downie had an aggressive and incurable form of brain cancer called glioblastoma, which he discovered after a seizure in December 2015.

He died Tuesday night surrounded by his children and family, according to a statement on the band’s website.

AWT TV Episode 25: October 17, 2017

Wow - hard to believe that we're already up to our 25th episode of AWT TV! It's a weekly show featuring Steve Sande, Dennis Sellers and Marty Edwards of Apple World Today. Each week we'll discuss what's happened in the world of Apple, talk about new apps and accessories, maybe even have a demonstration or two of the latest software.  

No Apple announcements this week, of course, so we spent plenty of time talking about...whatever. 

After a slight bout of Internetitis (the livestream was acting weird), we got underway. Steve was on his third podcast of the day; the previous one (MacVoices) was all about the Apple Watch Series 3. That diverged into a conversation about Bear (bear-writer.com), a surprisingly good text editor that even has an Apple Watch app! Dennis brought up how his wife was able to use her older Apple Watch on a known network miles away from her...

Selling your MacBook Pro with Touch Bar? Apple...

Zac Hall, 9to5Mac:

If you’re selling (or generously handing down) your MacBook Pro with Touch Bar, Apple recommends an extra step when erasing your data before parting ways with your machine. This step requires an obscure Terminal command that you wouldn’t assume and isn’t required on Macs without the Touch Bar.

Here’s the Apple Support document titled What to do before you sell or give away your Mac.

Check out step 6, “If you have a MacBook Pro with Touch Bar, clear its data”.

Begs the question, what is specifically stored in the Touch Bar that requires cleaning? Good to know that this step is necessary, but a bit of a mystery. Anyone know the specifics? Please do ping me.

Nice find, Zac.

UPDATE: And the answer is, this script removes your Touch ID data from your...

∞ Goodbye Uncanny Valley

[VIDEO] This is an amazing look at the state of the art in computer graphics, movie CGI. The video is embedded on the main Loop page.

From the Vimeo page:

It’s 2017 and computer graphics have conquered the Uncanny Valley, that strange place where things are almost real… but not quite. After decades of innovation, we’re at the point where we can conjure just about anything with software. The battle for photoreal CGI has been won, so the question is… what happens now?

I found the whole thing riveting. We are so very close to a world filled with conjured realities that are indistinguishable from real life. When that becomes our reality, what then? [H/T Kottke]

Here are Twitter’s latest rules for fighting hate...

Erin Griffith, Wired:

On Friday CEO Jack Dorsey announced plans to act more aggressively. Twitter will introduce new rules around unwanted sexual advances, non-consensual nudity, hate symbols, violent groups, and tweets that glorifies violence, he tweeted. To add a sense of urgency, the company is holding daily meetings on the issue.

And:

The new plans stop short of sweeping measures such as banning pornography or specific groups like Nazis. Rather, they offer expanded features such as allowing observers of unwanted sexual advances—as well as victims—to report them, and expanded definitions, such as including “creep shots” and hidden camera content under the definition of “non-consensual nudity.” The company also plans to hide hate symbols behind a “sensitive image” warning, though it has not yet defined what qualifies as a hate symbol. Twitter also says it will take unspecified enforcement actions against “organizations that use/have historically used violence...

The mathematical genius of Auto-Tune

Zachary Crockett, Priceonomics:

Auto-Tune — one of modern history’s most reviled inventions — was an act of mathematical genius.

The pitch correction software, which automatically calibrates out-of-tune singing to perfection, has been used on nearly every chart-topping album for the past 20 years. Along the way, it has been pilloried as the poster child of modern music’s mechanization.

And:

For inventor Andy Hildebrand, Auto-Tune was an incredibly complex product — the result of years of rigorous study, statistical computation, and the creation of algorithms previously deemed to be impossible.

And:

“The sampling synthesizers sounded like shit: if you sustained a note, it would just repeat forever,” he harps. “And the problem was that the machines didn’t hold much data.”

Hildebrand, who’d “retired” just a few months earlier, decided to take matters into his own hands. First, he created a processing algorithm that greatly condensed the...

Cardhop is a new interactive contacts app for macOS

Flexibits has announced Cardhop, an interactive contacts app for the Mac. Its parsing engine lets users search, add, edit, and interact with their contacts in one place. 

Cardhop automatically uses the built-in contacts on your Mac, so there’s zero configuration. Just type in "John G" and John's card will instantly appear. Or enter "Sarah Smith sarah@cardhopapp.com" and Cardhop will add a new contact to Sarah's card. Or type in "call Michael S" and Cardhop will instantly start a phone call with Michael on your Mac, or even directly on your iPhone using Bluetooth!

You can interact with your contacts with the following actions: Call, Copy, Directions, Email, FaceTime, FaceTime Audio, Large Type, Message, Skype, Telegram, Twitter, URL, and VoIP. With Cardhop's notes field, users can add a few details about their contacts, and the next time they interact with their contacts, they'll know more about them.

Why Apple should make Mac chips: Windows 10 ARM...

Industry players, such as Microsoft, have arrived in Hong Kong this week for Qualcomm’s 4G/5G Summit, an annual event to strategize and discuss trends and technology developments.

One of the topics of surefire interest revolves around Microsoft’s upcoming ARM-powered Windows 10 laptop. In a glimpse into its battery life potential, Microsoft’s Principal Group Program Manager for Connectivity Partners, Pete Bernard, told Trusted Reviews that he only needs to “charge it every couple of days or so.”

Having multi-day battery life on a real, full-featured laptop would indeed, as Bernard puts it, be a game-changing innovation. Yet, when you consider how much better Apple’s...

Twelve South’s Mac Candle No. 2 Smells Less Like a...

Twelve South has a new candle in its Inspire line. Called Mac Candle N°2, the candle’s scent profile was developed to help, “clear your mind of clutter and stimulate creativity.” Which may be better than the first generation candle, which was supposed to smell like a new Mac. The Verge noted that last year’s candle got blind sniff test results ranging from “old grass” to “urinal cake,” which makes me wish I had bought one just to see smell for myself. The new candle, though, has a brand new “vessel,” which is quite lovely to look at, and, “strong notes of bergamot, lemon, and tarragon.” At $29.99, it might also help to know that an unspecified portion of the proceeds are going to FIRST, a STEM-oriented charity. In any event, I love Twelve South Mac and iOS accessories, and am...

Pixel 2 reviews — disappointing screens, bad color...

Rene Ritchie, iMore:

I’ve owned almost every Nexus and the original Pixel, but problems with the Pixel 2 display may force me to look elsewhere for my yearly Android fix.

I bought most of Google’s Nexus phones, starting with the Nexus One. I bought the original Pixel. I pre-ordered the Pixel 2 XL right after the event. Now I’m thinking of canceling that order. The reason? It seems like Google chose to ship bad displays on their flagship phones.

Rene follows up with a host of quotes from other reviewers, almost all from traditional Android bloggers. This was really surprising to me. I expected a best-in-class display at this price point.

Read the post, and dig into the other quoted reviews. I’m not sensing Google-bashing here, more disappointment at the screen performance from people who want to love their new Google phone.

For the first time, a company can purchase all their new iOS devices from MetTel and ready them for use through MetTel's Universal Device Enrollment Program, regardless of which national or local communications network they are on. Previously, devices would be enrolled separately for each network they would connect to, taking additional time and resources and delaying employee productivity. MetTel's Enterprise Mobility Management provides centralized control, security and compliance over all device.

MetTel enables enterprise companies to deploy and manage technology-driven voice, data, wireless and cloud solutions worldwide. Combining customized and managed communication solutions with a platform of...

Snap, NBCUniversal form joint Hollywood Studio...

Todd Spangler, Variety:

Snap, Snapchat’s parent company, is teaming with NBCUniversal to bring scripted programming — like short-form comedies and dramas — to mobile screens. The companies have established a studio joint venture to produce programming exclusively for the social-messaging and media platform.

And:

The companies have recruited Lauren Anderson, who has served as NBC Entertainment’s senior VP of current programming, to be the JV’s chief content officer. “Lauren was a great get for us,” said Mills, who has worked with Anderson on the NBC shows created for Snapchat. “She has tremendous experience, and instantly got what we were going for.”

Yet another twist in the unfolding story of what we’ll be watching in the future and who will hold the puppet strings. This is an industry in the midst of disruption. At some point, the models will settle down and we’ll see who is making money, long term, determine who survives, prospers.

Rumor: iPhone X component suppliers report improved...

The supply stream for the iPhone X may be where it needs to be.

Per sources close to the story, yield rates for some iPhone X have improved and become more stable, allowing for shipments of the upcoming smartphone to grow substantially after October.

The sources also reported that yield rates for key parts such as 3D sensing modules have improved as well.

The first batch of iPhone X handsets have already shipped out from Foxconn Electronics’ site in Zhengzhou (Henan, China), said the sources. With production yield rates for certain key components such as 3D sensing modules improving, shipments of the device have increased gradually and will meet Apple’s demand ahead of the Christmas and New Year’s holidays, the sources indicated.

It’s also been reported that analog IC vendors have stated that chip deliveries for the iPhone X have been on schedule up to now, with orders fulfilled on time for the device in the third quarter. The same sources claimed...

Would you use a 15-inch iPad Pro?

Microsoft surprised almost everyone when it debuted new Surface devices yesterday (the rumor mill pegged 2018 as the time frame for a new update). The new models are more powerful, and there’s now a 15-inch Surface available.

Which makes me wonder: is there a market for a 15-inch iPad Pro? After all, Apple promotes the tablet as a potential laptop replacement (at least for some folks). And iOS 11 introduced some iPad Pro-targeted features such as true multitasking, a Files app, drag ’n drop, and more. All of these features are designed to enhance productivity.

Some folks find the 12.9-inch iPad Pro too unwieldly for use as a tablet. I don’t. Since I’m using my supersized tablet in lieu of a Mac laptop when I occasionally travel these days, an even bigger model sounds …. intriguing. 

I’d at least consider a 15-inch iPad Pro. Would...

Apple is granted a patent for ‘interface scanning...

Apple has been granted a patent (number 9,792,013) for “interface scanning for disabled users.” It involves improved input devices and methods for physically-impaired users. 

In the patent filing, Apple notes that various types of input devices, such as keyboards, mice, track pads, and touch screens, have been developed to enable a user to interact with a computing device. While these traditional input devices provide users with a quick and intuitive way to interact with a computing device, they all require a significant amount of movement by the user. 

This presents a problem for physically-impaired users that lack the fine motor skills required to operate such input devices. For example, some physically-impaired users are unable to move a finger across the surface of a touch screen device and thus, cannot operate a touch-sensitive device, such as a tablet computer. Similar problems can arise with the use of a keyboard or mouse. Apple wants to change this.

How to browse without being tracked with macOS High...

With macOS High Sierra, you can browse the web without being tracked thanks to the new version of the Safari web browser, which uses WebKit, a layout engine software component for rendering web pages in web browsers.

One of WebKit’s features is Intelligent Tracking Prevention (ITP), which uses machine learning to identify and limit any tracking behavior in the Safari browser. Tracking can include third-party cookies and identification puts a 24-hour time limit on that behavior. You can turn it off or on this way:

  • In Safari, go to Safari > Preferences.
  • Click on the Privacy icon at the top of the window.
  • In the "Website tracking" section, you can click (or not) the option to "Ask websites not to track me." 
  • Check the boxes if you want these features implemented.
  • Close the preferences window.

Review: Sonos One pairs hi-fi audio with Amazon’s...

Sonos One, the latest Sonos wireless speaker, matches the hi-fi audio of its predecessor, the Play:1, while adding a six far-field microphone array for built-in voice control using Amazon Alexa. All for the same $199 price.

Using a wireless speaker with a built-in voice assistant and high quality audio can be very natural and fun. Just say what you want to hear and Sonos One serves it up. What’s less simple is navigating through which music services work and with what method. There’s also the upcoming arrival of Apple’s...

Sylvania Announces Apple HomeKit Smartbulbs and...

Sylvania announced two lighting products for Apple’s HomeKit ecosystem. The Sylvania Smart+ A19 Soft White LED Bulb puts out 800 lumens, the equivalent of a 60 watt incandescent lightbulb. It’s dimmable, and joins the full color A19 already on the market. The Sylvania Smart+ Full Color LED Flex Strip supports both full color and dimming. It puts out 400 lumens, or roughly the equivalent of a 30 watt incandescent bulb. Neither light requires a hub for on-off functionality, but work in Apple’s HomeKit ecosystem with hubs like an Apple TV, HomePod, or an iPad. Using a hub, users can automate the lights and access them remotely. I’m stoked to see new HomeKit products hit the market, and these ship on October 23rd. They’re on Amazon now, listed as out-of-stock. The Smart+ A19 Soft White LED Bulb is $25.99, while the ...

Twelve South releases upgrade to The Mac Candle

It's good to see that companies like Twelve South are on the ball when it comes to doing product upgrades on a regular basis. Earlier this year the accessory manufacturer surprised us with the Curve Desktop Stand for MacBook, which was a re-design and updating of the 2003 original iCurve. Now an even more important upgrade has hit: Twelve South announced the arrival of The Mac Candle No. 2 (AKA "Inspire", $29.99).

This is an update to last year's Mac Candle No. 1, which was nicknamed the "New Mac Candle" because it smelled like that wonderful odor you get when you open a box and pull out that fresh, new Mac. This year's Inspire should have a much more pleasant aroma, as it uses "strong...
