New Ford Tech Shines Light Where Drivers Need It


Ford Motor Company has developed a new lighting system that can illuminate hazards on the road -- even those that are not in the direct line of travel of the vehicle -- better than conventional headlights. Ford on Friday unveiled the Camera-Based Advanced Front Lighting System, which can widen the beam from headlines at junctions and roundabouts, and help draw the driver's attention to pedestrians, cyclists and animals that are in the vehicle's path -- or even off the road.

There are no hard numbers that indicate just how popular the Apple Watch is. All we have are anecdotes and not-quite-reliable evidence that watch sales have plummeted in the weeks after launch. But a new report indicates that early Apple Watch buyers are pretty pleased with their purchases—and they don’t all work in tech.

Techpinions analyst Ben Bajarin joined forces with Apple Watch research platform Wristly to survey Apple Watch owners and found that 97 percent are satisfied with the watch, which is higher than the percentage of original iPad and iPhone buyers who...

Angry Birds 2 Set for Late July Landing


Six years and more than a dozen spinoffs after Angry Birds first took flight, the game finally will receive a proper sequel on July 30, Rovio announced last week. The details are scant, but Angry Birds 2 apparently will be "bigger, badder and birdier," going by a tweet from Rovio. Rovio hasn't specified if Angry Birds 2 will launch on both Android and iOS, but the company indicated that the game will hit "app stores," plural. Exclusivity could hurt a company that's still searching for it's next massive hit.

The NFL is about to retire Game Rewind, a paid service for users in the US that offers online streaming and apps for on-demand NFL games, and replace it with a revamped version of its Game Pass service that will bring full, on-demand games to Apple TV for the first time. Previously the Game Pass service was only available to users internationally and not available on Apple TV.

A note on the NFL’s webpage for Game Rewind warns users that “as of July 31, 2015 Game Rewind will no longer be available.” The message, however, notes that users will be able to access games with “the all new NFL Game...

Apple Watch helps make navigating a new city easy...

Nothing says “I’m a tourist,” or worse, “Mug me, I’m not paying attention” like staring at a map on your phone. Apple Watch lets me avoid that scenario and still navigate someplace new.

I spent this past weekend in New York City, visiting family. My wife, my kids and I visit every summer, and we're getting to know our way around (Espresso 77 is a favorite stop in Queens). Still, it's a massive city and I've often depended on my iPhone for walking directions. As I explained above, that's good and bad.

It's very nice to have what amounts to a pocket-sized GPS receiver at hand. With a few taps, I've got a route to our destination. That's great, but I dislike holding my phone and staring at it while in unfamiliar and often very crowded neighborhoods. This is where the Apple Watch is a shining star.

Last Saturday, we had to walk from Times Square to the foot of Central Park. It's pretty much a straight shot, but I...

Wristly has shared data which demonstrates that 97% of Apple Watch customers are satisfied with the device, in comparison to 92% of original iPhone owners and 91% of those who owned an original iPad.

Wristly is a research firm intent on gathering the "unique native insights" gleaned from using an Apple Watch. The group gathers volunteers and routinely asks them questions pertaining to the device. 800 subjects took part in the group's Apple Watch satisfaction survey.

This is unofficial research, of course, but interesting none the less.

“Shrinkage” problem lands Apple in legal hot water...

A federal judge has ruled that Apple must defend a class-action trial, to begin in January, representing thousands of Apple store workers. The employees claim they had to spend as much as 20 minutes off the clock having their bags searched to combat employee theft—known as "shrinkage"—every time they left the premises.

According to US District Judge William Alsup's ruling: (PDF)

In stores where searches were performed by the manager on duty, some employees say they had to scour the store to find a manager and wait until that manager finished with other duties, such as assisting a customer. Where searches were performed by a security guard, some employees had to wait until a security guard became available. Some employees sometimes had to wait in line. Employee estimates of the duration of the whole process, including both searches and wait...

Apple Music has garnered some decidedly mixed reviews, but one thing every critic can agree on: The streaming service’s daily recommendations of human-curated playlists are undeniably awesome.

But not so fast, says Spotify. The top streaming service is now using algorithms to serve up a personalized playlist, Discover Weekly, to prove it knows you at least as well as Apple Music—and maybe better.

I put my Spotify membership on hold to give Apple Music’s free three-month trial a shot, but I still haven’t decided which service deserves my allegiance. I love Apple Music’s playlists, especially the constantly changing ones it recommends to me in the app’s For You tab. Spotify understands that it’s not enough to offer the same...

Apple Watch Still Waiting On App Developers

An anonymous reader writes: It's been almost three months since the Apple Watch launched, and the tiny device hasn't taken people's wrists by storm. That's not to say it's a failure — experts estimate Apple has sold between three and five million of them, and we may get more detailed sales information during their earnings call, tomorrow. But many major app developers are still missing from the Watch's catalog, and Apple doesn't have a good way of roping them into the new section of its ecosystem. "I don't know if we could get it all in there in a way that feels good and works well," said a Facebook executive. "Why would you look at a small picture when you can look at a large one on your phone?" said Snapchat's CEO. The app rush that hit phones and tablets is dampened for the Watch. For now, all Apple can do is improve their development toolkit and hope coders can figure out useful new wrist-based interactions.

Apple fights former sapphire provider in bankruptcy...

In May, a fire broke out in one of the factories once used by GT Advanced Technologies (GTAT), an erstwhile supplier of sapphire to Apple that is currently in the throes of Chapter 11 bankruptcy. In July, GTAT reported that damage to its sapphire furnaces housed at the facility "appears highly unlikely” and that the residue on "crystal growing equipment" would have "no likely effect on operability.”

Still, that fire is causing consternation from GTAT's biggest antagonist in its bankruptcy proceedings—Apple. The smartphone maker told the US Bankruptcy Court of New Hampshire last week that it objected to a financing plan (PDF) from the bankrupt sapphire supplier, saying that details involving GTAT's insurance company could derail the settlement between Apple and its former Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM).

Under GTAT's current financing plan, it must be...

The most recent worry had been that China’s economy had put selling pressure on Apple’s stock as investors worries that the Chinese market, which is currently Apple’s biggest market, might stop buying iPhones. Those concerns have eased, however, as some Wall Street analysts have issued reports saying demand for iPhone remains strong in the country.

iPhone rules the mobile podcast world

Image via Clammr "Future of Podcasting" survey

A report from Clammr today shows a remarkable statistic: 82 percent of all mobile podcast listening is done on iPhone, with most listeners using Apple's default Podcast app. Clammr is a platform used by podcasters to create short audio snippets of shows that can be sent out via social media.

The report shows that fragmentation and lack of a podcast directory is limiting podcasting growth on the Android platform, while Apple's vertically integrated combination of hardware (the iPhone), the App Store, iTunes, and the Podcast app make it simple for iPhone users to discover and enjoy podcasts.

What's remarkable is that most iPhone podcast listeners choose to use the Podcast app despite having a...

An old fable keeps running through my mind about the scam artist who convinced an emperor that he had created clothing only smart people could see.

The bad news is that it will cripple many power-user utilities, such as SuperDuper, Default Folder, and TotalFinder; however, you will be able to disable SIP. Also, users will no longer be able to repair disk permission manually in 10.11 — rather, the system will do it automatically whenever a system update is installed.

Munster says talks with investors have shown general disappointment and concern about the ‘long-term opportunity’ for the Apple Watch. In the short term, he believes supply constraints and lack of availability in Apple retail stores have limited early...

In the ad, Apple touts that there are more than 1.5 million apps available for iPhone, all of which are “hand-picked, awe-inspiring, and just plain surprising.”

Last week, Apple unveiled a duo of new ads and introduced the “If it’s not an iPhone, it’s not an iPhone” tagline. Last week’s ads were entitled “Hardware & Software” and “Love.” The former focused on how Apple is responsible for both the hardware and software...

Silicon Valley Still Wrestling With Diversity Issues

An anonymous reader writes: As major tech companies come under increased scrutiny over the diversity of their workforces, many of them are focusing solely on the "pipeline" of workers educated in a computer-related field. They're pouring resources into getting kids to code, setting up internships, and even establishing mentoring programs for underrepresented groups. But experts say they're still failing to root out their own internal biases when making hiring decisions. "That bias shows up in recruiting, with companies drawing from the same top universities, where black and Hispanic graduates are still lagging behind other groups. ... The problem is particularly acute at start-ups, where black founders are just 1 percent of venture-invested firms, according to a 2011 survey by CB Insights." The tech companies are under mounting pressure to solve this problem, and the solutions they're pursuing won't show results quickly.

KGI expects new gold colors for Apple Watch Sport to...

A new report out from KGI’s Ming-Chi Kuo includes some interesting details about Apple’s planned fall product releases. Firstly, Kuo expects iPhone shipments to fall in the current quarter as anticipation builds for the new iPhone dubbed the ‘iPhone 6s’, although apparently ‘Force Touch yields are low’ which may constrict availability at the beginning. For Apple Watch, following a report earlier in the year to expect new materials for Apple Watch casings, Kuo claims Apple will launch new Apple Watch Sport color options to match the new iPhone.

This includes anodizing aluminum in either yellow gold or rose gold to match the gold options on the iPhone 6s and create a faux-Edition Sport model. Third-party coating services already exist for the Apple Watch (...

Caturday: Casey, feline commander of the iMac!

Casey, photo by Maryann Trozzo

It's all in the timing. Sometimes we Mac-loving cat toys catch our furry buddies in the act of doing something that looks so human... In this case, Casey looks like he's checking out settings to make sure they're correct, but he's actually more interested in a fly that's landed on top of the iMac. Here's the scoop from Casey's loving human, Maryann Trozzo:

“This is Casey who was adopted from the LASPCA in Long Beach, Ca in November of 2013. He is now a little over 2 years old. He is the most charming of kitties, he comes when we call him and loves to play and chase treats. About a year ago I was working on a family members old iMac. A fly that got into the house landed on the top of the monitor and the resulting pictured happened. He look like he is studying what is on the screen, but you can barely see the tiny fly sitting on top. I hope you can download these pictures from Facebook. I also included a second picture of this pretty...

Review: The Briefcase from Pad and Quill is a...

 

Being a writer and video creator, my bags are easily some of the most important possessions I have. The reason is obvious: they protect my essential tech and gear. I’m always super picky about which bags or backpacks I choose for this hefty task, and most of them come at a steep price. They hardly every look what you may call “good” though. I’m usually all about function over form when it comes to my bag decision. Choosing durability and features like pocket space usually means you’ll need to compromise on design.

With that said, I don’t consider myself a “briefcase” kind of guy. The style has just never been my thing because briefcases tend to be rather conservative on space and stiff in shape. So what’s with all of this talk over bags and briefcases? It just so happens that I’ve found a briefcase that’s actually kind of a bag, and it delivers...

Pocket, the popular app that allows users to save articles and read them later, has received an update that adds another way to consume saved articles.

Listen is a way for users to consume their news hands-free. The feature offers the ability to start listening from anywhere in the article, skip portions you aren’t interested in, and adjust the reading speed to be either faster or slower. Perhaps most notably, Listen is available in all languages.

You Should Play: Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions adds...

These days, keeping up with games can be a full-time job. So how do you separate the signal from the noise, the wheat from the chaff, the Temple Runs from the Temple Jumps? Allow us to help by regularly selecting a game You Should Play.

Controller-based games don’t always translate well to touch devices, and Geometry Wars seems like it ought to be a prime example of that. While inspired by classic arcade games (especially Robotron: 2084), the series is built around the dual analog sticks of console gamepads, letting you easily steer your ship with one stick and fire with the other as you zip around the minimal, neon-tinged terrain. Precision is absolutely necessary, given the small stages and focus on amassing high scores.

This week Apple World Today has reviews of three Apple Watch charging stands: the Griffin WatchStand, the Nomad Stand for Apple Watch, and today I’m looking at Fuse Chicken’s $25 Bobine Watch.

Design

I’ve been a big fan of Fuse Chicken’s Bobine product line since back in the day when the flexible stand first became available for the iPhone. Now it has a new job; that of holding up your Apple Watch in the car or on your desk.

As with the other Bobines, the Bobine Watch uses a flexible metal coil that stays in place however you bend it. The bottom of the coil acts as a base, the middle as an...

iPod Touch performance preview: 500% better CPU, 900...


ars.AD.queue.push(["xrailTop", {sz:"300x250", kws:[], collapse: true}]);

Smartphones and tablets have stopped changing all that much from year to year, which makes it easy to take for granted just how far they've come in such a relatively short time. One year of updates doesn't do much to impress anymore, but take three or four years of updates all at once and you'll have something to be impressed by.

Such is the case with the sixth-generation iPod Touch, which brings three years' and four generations' worth of processor improvements all at the same time. Jumping from an Apple A5 to an A8 results in an almost comically large performance improvement, though as we'll see, you're not quite getting iPhone 6 performance in an iPod-sized body.

The CPU

The iPod's A8 is running at around 1.1GHz, roughly 27 percent slower than the 1.4GHz A8 in the iPhone 6. When those phones were announced, Apple said the A8 was about 25 percent faster...

Aside from a low transaction limit, paying with the iPhone or Apple Watch using Apple Pay at the London Underground transportation system has...

The camera behind the new Pluto photos

.

The Atlantic:

I talked to Lisa Hardaway, an engineer at Ball Aerospace in Colorado who led technical development of the one called “Ralph.” Ralph captures visible and some infrared light. When you see Pluto looking tan- and sepia-toned in the new, high-resolution photos, you’re looking at data captured by Ralph.

​Since it captures visible light, Ralph is in many ways comparable to the camera found in a phone or fancy DSLR. In conventional camera terms, it’s a 75mm lens at f/8.7. But it was far harder to build than a normal camera.

Hilarious that these incredible images we are getting from New Horizons are from a “Ralph”. An “Omar” or a “Brad” I could understand.
