How Fancred is challenging Facebook for your sports...

Unless you’re a diehard sports fan, you probably haven’t heard of Fancred—yet. The sports fan-focused social network is
quietly building momentum in a quest to do for sports what LinkedIn has done for professionals.

“We think we’re building the world’s largest fan network,” said CEO Kash Razzaghi.

That mission continues this week with the launch of “Your Fancred,” a redesigned profile that puts your fandom front and center. Razzaghi noticed that
people already used their favorite teams as identifiers in their bios on other social networks, so the platform is using teams as a way to organize
activity on the network with a new feature called Team Albums. The conversations you have with fellow fans, the photos and articles you post, and your
check-ins at stadiums will now be organized into team-specific albums on your profile for easier access (and to show off your pride).

Hands On: Blowfish Meets Meteor (iOS)

Arcade games have made the transition to iOS with almost no effort. Their simple interface works especially well with a touchscreen device and because of this, a lot of developers have begun to offer their takes on the classic arcade games of the 1980s and 1990s. Blowfish Meets Meteor by Sky Tyrannosaur offers a new remake of an ever-popular arcade classic....

Some judges in ebook appeal express sympathy with...

Some of the judges in Apple’s appeal of last year’s ebook trial verdict appear sympathetic to the company’s argument that its deals with publishers helped, rather than hindered, competition, reports Reuters.

Circuit Judge Dennis Jacobs asked a Department of Justice lawyer why it was wrong for the publishers to get together to defeat a “monopolist” that was using “predatory pricing.”

“It’s like the mice getting together to put a bell on the cat,” Jacobs said.

The court had earlier heard evidence that at the time Apple entered the ebooks market, Amazon held a 90% market share … ...

New York Times:

On Tuesday, Apple announced that in recent weeks the company had signed up dozens more banks, retail stores and start-ups to adopt Apple Pay, the company’s new e-commerce product, which allows customers to buy things with little more than a wave of their iPhone.

Lots of progress here.

Why yes, that is an Apple Studio Display on my desk

Today, of course, we’re used to screens being completely flat, almost paper-thin, with perfectly square edges, and consistent, reliable colors from the second you switch them on. It wasn’t always so.

Even up to the year 2000, most desktop computers were attached to a hulking great VDU (Visual Display Unit), a huge box of a thing that was usually deeper than it was wide, and that housed a heavy glass assembly called a Cathode Ray Tube.

These CRT displays were not just big and heavy, annexing proportions of your desk that would seem ludicrous now, but they drew an enormous amount of power; I remember reading detailed analyses of how a flat-panel display would pay for itself in a given number of years since it used to much less electricity.

How broken is discovery on the App Store? This...

Gedeon Maheux:

The following list was generated by a manual App Store (iPhone) search on Nov 15th, 2014 for the term “Twitter”. The official app from Twitter is naturally the first result, but the next actual Twitter client (Hootsuite) doesn’t appear on the list until #20 and the next one after that comes in at #62. Even the mega-popular Tweetbot isn’t returned in the results until position #81 and even then, the older v2 of Tweetbot (for iOS 6) comes first.

Where’s Twitterrific? Although it contains the word “Twitter” in the app’s name, Twitterrific isn’t seen in the list until you scroll all the way down to #100.

I’ve seen this many times, in particular when searching for podcasts and dozens of completely unrelated ones intrude on your search. Makes for a frustrating waste of time.

During a hearing on Monday, Judge Dennis Jacobs took an openly critical stance in his questioning of DOJ attorneys-one of the other two judges also appeared doubtful of the case, while the third apparently seemed to take a stance more in line with the District Court judge who convicted Apple.

Jury begins deliberations in billion-dollar Apple...

OAKLAND, Calif.—The long-running iTunes antitrust lawsuit against Apple has gone to a jury, which took the case after about three hours of closing arguments today. The jury will make an unusual split decision, deliberating first over the narrow issue of whether iTunes 7.0 was a true product improvement or an anti-competitive scheme to kick out Apple competitor RealNetworks.

If the jury sees the "software and firmware updates" in iTunes 7.0 as a real improvement, the case will be over—a win for Apple. If it doesn't see it that way, the jurors will still have to decide if Apple broke competition laws and, if so, how much the company should pay in damages. Plaintiffs are asking for $351 million, and any award will be tripled under antitrust law.

Plaintiffs representing a class of eight million consumers and resellers say Apple's behavior was anti-competitive, because the iTunes update stopped Real's competing...

How to Use a Lego Kit to Measure Planck’s Constant

Planck's constant is one of the fundamental constants in the universe. For example, it defines the relationship between the energy of, say, a photon and its frequency. It's widely used in the mathematics of Quantum Mechanics. Recently, using just a Lego kit and some other equipment, including a laser, Leon Chao at the National Institute of Standards and Technology in Gaithersburg, Maryland, showed how to make this measurement. This is for real, and it works because the experimental technique simply requires a well crafted balance. It's all written up in the M.I.T. Technology Review. You could actually do the experiment yourself because the costs of parts is only about US$500. Very cool.

SNL did a great job of recreating the Ricky Gervais version of the series, and Martin had no problem at all slipping back into the role of Tim with a perfect splash of Bilbo thrown in.

Apple is accused of conspiring with book publishers to artificially inflate the costs of e-books, with a particular aim at undermining Amazon, which was at one point selling mainstream titles for $10; those prices went up several dollars as a result of Apple's efforts. Jacobs today argued, however that Apple was a "new entrant" into the e-book world "breaking the hold of a marke...

Kenu's Stance ($30) is a compact tripod mount for newer iPhones — it plugs directly into an iPhone's Lightning port. The three-legged mount uses a ball-and-socket joint to tilt and rotate the iPhone, while the zinc alloy legs have soft feet for setting up securely in landscape or portrait viewing positions. Stance is about 3.1" long, and weighs 1.2 ounces. Kenu points out that the tripod mount is smaller than a stick of gum. As a nice bonus, Kenu included a bottle opener on the side of one of Stance's legs, adding extra functionality to the accessory.{/exp:char_limit}

Gartner: iPhone sees growth while Samsung continues...

Gartner today published its third quarter numbers, showing overall growth in the smartphone market and a strong quarter for Apple. Mobile devices overall saw as many as 456 million sold with smartphones taking a 301 million slice of that pie, which comes out to a solid 66% (up 20% from last year). This shift in the market seems to be hurting Samsung and Nokia the most, because while the Korean giant is still leading the pack, this year smaller companies with slimmer margins seem to be taking some of its foothold.

While the number of devices that ship with Android continues to surpass iOS by leaps and bounds, the report for this quarter shows a strong increase in iPhone sales for Apple thanks to the launch of the iPhone 6. Sales were up 26% quarter over quarter,...

Apple Watch design from a watch designer

It’s beautiful. As someone who designs consumer electronics and watches, the more I looked at it the more impressed I was. It’s got Marc Newson’s fingerprints all over it.

It’s clearly something he designed rather than Jony Ive. It’s funny they announced he was working with them after the watch. But to me that was the Apple way of underhandedly giving him credit for the design without actually saying he designed it. But it seemed to me very Marc Newson.

A fascinating story.

The insane history of how American paranoia ruined...

Vox:

Some 60 years ago, during the era of McCarthyism, comic books became a threat. The panic culminated in a Senate hearing in 1954. This, of course, isn’t to say that McCarthyism and the comic book panic were comparable in their human toll. But they share the same symptoms of American fear and a harsh, reactive response to it.

What adults thought was best for children ended up censoring and dissolving away years of progress and artistry, as well as comics that challenged American views on gender and race. Consequently, that cemented the idea that this was a medium for kids — something that we’ve only recently started disbelieving.

Fascinating history of what comic books used to be and how we got to where we are now.

Apple and Samsung Already Working On A9 Processor

itwbennett writes According to a report in Korean IT Times, Samsung Electronics has begun production of the A9 processor, the next generation ARM-based CPU for iPhone and iPad. Korea IT Times says Samsung has production lines capable of FinFET process production (a cutting-edge design for semiconductors that many other manufacturers, including AMD, IBM and TSMC, are adopting) in Austin, Texas and Giheung, Korea, but production is only taking place in Austin. Samsung invested $3.9 billion in that plant specifically to make chips for Apple. So now Apple can say its CPU is "Made in America."

The Internet should be a basic human right, but access to it is increasingly unequal around the globe, said Tim Berners-Lee, founder of the World Wide Web Foundation, as he launched its annual Web Index last week. The Web has the potential to be a great equalizer, Berners-Lee asserted, but only "if we hard-wire the rights to privacy, freedom of expression, affordable access and Net neutrality into the rules of the game." That currently does not appear to be happening. The Web is becoming less free and more unequal, the Web Index suggests.

A powerful magnet can still screw up your day.

Or your iPhone 6′s camera stabilization and NFC systems.

Per 9to5Mac, a number of users have noticed issues with the iPhone 6 Plus camera and NFC on both the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, but the cause of the problem — interference from magnets and metal components in accessories — isn’t well documented.

The cause of the issue has been noticed by a small number of users online, and Apple does briefly warn users to avoid accessories that use magnets or metal components in a support document that was quietly updated in the months following the launch of the new iPhones. But it’s not something most...

In as much as Sony Pictures didn’t want its emails leaked to the public, this may provide a good idea as to what’s gone on behind the scenes of the much-anticipated Steve Jobs biopic.

The answer is that a lot’s been happening, complete with name calling, insults, intimidation, lying, begging and name dropping as the studio vied to find the perfect lead for the part of Jobs himself.

The emails, which were dated in February and reposted on Defamer, discuss Aaron Sorkin’s adaptation of Walter Isaacson’s Steve Jobs biography, how Jobs himself would be portrayed, whether Sony would assign resources to the Jobs movie or Angelina Jolie’s Cleopatra epic and a bevy of verbal back and forth between Sony Pictures co-chariman Amy Pascal and controversial producer...

SwitchEasy's Boombox ($30) case for iPhone 6 is a folio-style case that uses an amplifying design to boost sound from the iPhone's speakers without any additional battery power. The audio is directed out to the left side of the phone, under the volume controls and ringer switch. Even while the folio cover is closed, holes on the cover itself allow the sound to come through. The folio cover can also be used as a kickstand. Boombox offers button coverage for the sleep/wake button and volume controls.{/exp:char_limit}

As they’ve done in year’s past, some Apple retail stores this holiday season will repurpose the Genius Bar for additional product space, pick-ups, or other uses as Apple attempts to make the shopping experience for customers as smooth as possible, 9to5Mac has learned.

The repurposing for the holidays will only arrive in some stores depending on needs and traffic, with some stores scheduled to use the Genius Bar area to complete express sales and hold products scheduled for pick-up. Other changes, however, will go beyond the holidays as the stores under new retail chief Angela Ahrendts evolve to better deal with increased foot traffic.

For some stores that means that the Genius Bar itself might be closed until the new year, but Geniuses will still be available on the...

Review: Drop Scale makes baking foolproof w/...

As a dedicated fan of kitchen gadgets, a Bluetooth scale linked to a companion iPad app that walks you through recipes step-by-step was too much to resist. Besides, it was a chance to bake some cookies and call it work (though I’m not entirely convinced the taxman is going to allow me to deduct the cost of the ingredients).

The scale is very compact – a little under 6.5 inches across with the front lip, and around 5.5 inches wide. There are no visible controls or display, but the lip contains a button and a hidden LED which lights up briefly when the scale connects to the app. Otherwise, it’s entirely featureless …

Apple has launched a new Christmas-themed TV ad, "The Song" (below). Much like last year's "Misunderstood," the spot focuses on lifestyle branding rather than directly promoting Apple products. Its story has a girl discovering a record given from her grandmother to her grandfather in 1952, featuring the grandmother singing "Love is Here to Stay." The girl then uses a MacBook to help her learn and record a duet over the old recording; she leaves an iPad mini with a note attached for her grandmother to find....
