Barbra Streisand calls Tim Cook with Siri complaint...

Barbra Streisand was doing a guest spot on NPR’s Weekend Edition Saturday when the host, Scott Simon, brought out his iPhone, asked Siri a question:

Scott: Siri, who’s the only female vocalist who’s had hit records for six straight decades?

Siri: Barbra Streisand

Barbra: (laughs) She pronounces my name wrong. Streisand with a soft “s”, like sand.

Streisand then goes on to tell the story of her phone call to Tim Cook to complain, and Tim’s personal response.

ITC hands Apple a win in its patent case with...

A U.S. International Trade Commission judge handed Apple a win Friday, ruling that a media player patent that netted Creative Technologies, a Singapore software company a $100 million settlement with Apple is invalid.

Administrative Law Judge David Shaw of the U.S. Patent and Trade Office (USPTO) has ruled that Creative Technology's patent that addresses music library navigation and sorting in the iPod, and now iOS overall, was too abstract to be eligible for a patent.

Creative Tech sued Apple for infringing on patents involving its Zen music players. Apple countersued, claiming Creative was...

Recode: Amazon’s cheaper, Echo-only music service

Recode:

Amazon wants to launch a music subscription service that would work the same way services from Apple, Spotify and many others work: $10 a month, for all the music you can stream, anywhere you want to stream it.

But Amazon is also working on a second service that would differ in two significant ways from industry rivals: It would cost half the price, and it would only work on Amazon’s Echo hardware.

Industry sources say Amazon would like to launch both services in September, but has yet to finalize deals with major music labels and publishers. One sticking point, sources say, is whether Amazon will sell the cheaper service for $4 or $5 a month.

I can’t imagine a music service that I could only use in one place. One of the things I love about Apple Music is that it is always with me: on my computer, on my iPhone, iPad, in my car, always available.

I like the idea of a cheaper service, that might move me, but only if I didn’t have to...

Apple acquires personal health data startup Gliimpse

Fast Company:

Silicon Valley-based Gliimpse has built a personal health data platform that enables any American to collect, personalize, and share a picture of their health data.

And:

The acquisition happened earlier this year, but Apple has been characteristically quiet about it. The company has now confirmed the purchase, saying: “Apple buys smaller technology companies from time to time, and we generally do not discuss our purpose or plans.”

And this from founder Anil Sethi’s LinkedIn page:

As a consumer of healthcare, I leave behind a bread-crumb-trail of medical info wherever I’ve been seen. But, I’m unable to easily access or share my own data. Obamacare is one of several forcing functions federally mandating physicians and hospitals give us our data: meds, labs, allergies . . .you get the idea. However, there...

Pyle USA releases inexpensive 4K HD Action Camera

Image via Pyle USA

When it comes to capturing spectacular video, 4K action cameras are the best. However, these little cameras often come with a big price tag, putting them out of the range of many people who would love to capture their adventures in all the detail of 4K HD video. Pyle USA today announced the US$79 High Speed 4K HD Action Sports Camera, which should make it possible for everyone to shoot 4K video without breaking the bank.

The little camera, which comes with a waterproof case, wireless remote control, handlebar mount, and universal base mount, has some big specs. For video shooting, users can select between 4K Ultra HD, 2.7K, 1080p and 720p resolution using a unique slow-motion (120fps) capture speed.

Apple files for — and is granted — lots of patents by the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office. Many are for inventions that never see the light of day. However, you never can tell which ones will materialize in a real product, so here are today’s patent highlights: 

Apple has been granted a patent (number 9,424,818) for a “travel guitar” that would work with an iPad or iPhone It’s for a guitar having a neck and/or body that may assume a reduced profile configured to house or otherwise receive or coupled to a tablet and/or a smart phone having one or more applications (apps) for driving the operation, functionality and/or effects associated with the travel guitar, and a string assembly capable of retracting or otherwise housing the strings to enable or facilitate configuring the travel guitar into a reduced profile.

PCVARK malware strain surfaces for the Mac, opens...

A new strain of Mac malware has gone into the wild and is worth being a bit wary around.

The strain, discovered by Malwarebytes, is know as “PCVARK” and is labeled as “Advanced Mac Cleaner” online. Once activated, the installer places a trojan called “Mac File Opener”, which behaves in the following way according to Thomas Reed of Malwarebytes:

Once I had installed it and was poking around to see whether it had installed anything new – perhaps a shiny new piece of adware, for example – I discovered an odd app, named Mac File Opener, tucked away where the average user would never see it.

Even more intriguing, this app didn’t have any apparent mechanism for being launched. It hadn’t been added to my login items. There wasn’t a new...

Rumor: Apple to include curved OLED screen in high-...

Apple’s OLED display is said to be due in 2017 and will appear on the premium model.

The rumored OLED unit, which is thought to be coming on the high end of the three next-gen iPhones due next year, is thought to be headed to the 5.5-inch-or-larger unit. The display will be curved at the edges while the other two models are said to be 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch models with flat LCD displays like the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, corroborating previous reports.

The report reiterates that Samsung is expected to be Apple’s primary supplier of OLED displays, but it may be unable to fully keep up with demand for both iPhones and its own Galaxy smartphones. Recognizing the opportunity, Apple manufacturer Foxconn has been developing glass casings and OLED displays over the past...

The study, which is based on 500 online interviews with users of Apple Music or Spotify who participate in listening to or creating playlists. 

The study found that 90% of music streamers have listened to or created a playlist. Paid or “premium” subscribers were the most active, with eight in 10 listening to their service every day and half listening to a playlist every time that they use the service to stream music. Among those who listened to service’s playlist, nine out of ten had also created a personal playlist in the past three months.

Meridan Explorer USB DAC improves your overall...

Digital media is a wonderful thing, but it has limitations, including sound. Enter the $299 Merdian Explorer USB DAC.

The main purpose of a DAC (digital to analog converter) is to convert the input of any digital source (such as your Mac) to an analog signal that can be fed into an amplifier or active loudspeakers. A DAC device also works with headphones and designated computer speakers. The result is an efficient external amp and elimination of any computer noise.

About the size of a USB stick, the Meridian Explorer replaces -- or, rather, overrides -- your computer’s sound card. It sports a headphone amplifier with on-board analogue volume control. All this to say: it makes the audio output on your Mac sound better in every instance.

How? Audiophile music-grade electrolytic capacitors decouple the analogue audio stages, enhancing the sound quality. A big proportion...

If you need a high quality capsule microphone, Marshall Electronics' MXL AC-404 USB provides excellent voice quality on conference calls at a reasonable price (about $90). If you take advantage of free or subscription Internet conferencing services such as FaceTime or Skype, it's worth a look.

The AC-404 conference mic uses boundary microphone technology and built-in custom circuitry. It has a "sports car-ish" design that boasts 180 degree coverage and a 40Hz-16Hz frequency response. It's not exactly tiny, but it's small enough that you could toss it in a bag and carry it with you when you're on the road.

The AC-404 is USB powered and will interface with Mac and Windows computers without the need for any special drivers. For the best results, you should plug it directly into your computer rather than a hub as USB hubs can interfere with the performance.

The MXL mic includes a headphone jack that works just...

Samsung Plans To Sell Refurbished High-End...

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Reuters: Samsung Electronics Co Ltd plans to launch a program to sell refurbished used versions of its premium smartphones as early as next year, a person with direct knowledge of the matter told Reuters. The world's top smartphone maker will refurbish high-end phones returned to the company by users who signed up for one-year upgrade programs in markets such as South Korea and the United States. Samsung would then re-sell these phones at a lower price, the person said, declining to be identified as the plan was not yet public. The person declined to say how big a discount the refurbished phones would be sold at, which markets the phones would be sold in or how many refurbished devices Samsung could sell. It was not clear to what extent the phones would be altered, but refurbished phones typically are fitted with parts such as a new casing or battery. Refurbished phones could help vendors such as Samsung boost their presence in emerging...

Ben Brooks on failing:

Other than an update under the hood, the latest Slackware release offers little that's new in terms of usability and few new features.

Cindy Cohn is the Executive Director of the Electronic Frontier Foundation. Founded in 1990, the EFF is a nonprofit organization defending civil liberties in the digital world. The EFF champions user privacy, free expression, and innovation through litigation, policy analysis, grassroots activism and technology development. It has won some important court cases that preserve our rights online, including the use of encryption. (Which wasn’t always a given.) Cindy and I talked at length about her career, notable cases she fought and the work of the EFF, especially in the Apple vs. FBI conflict last spring. Cindy starts with notion that “privacy is fundamental to human dignity and… we can’t have a free society unless people have a private space.” Even if that means law enforcement has to work a little harder.

Check out this short review of the Mesh Band, then enter to win a silver X-Doria Mesh Band.

Like Apple's Milanese Loop, the X-Doria Mesh Band comes in two different finishes; black and silver. It uses the standard Apple Watch band mechanism to easily install the band on the Watch in seconds with no tools, and it uses a strong magnet as a closure to tighten the loop around your wrist.

Apple will debut three new iPhone models next year, presumably the “iPhone 8” and “iPhone 8 Plus,” as well as a third model that will sport a curved OLED screen similar to the Edge versions of Samsung's Galaxy phones, claims the Japanese site, Nikkei (as noted by AppleInsider).

The “premium” handset will be 5.5 inches, perhaps larger, and have a screen bent on two sides. Nikkei didn't specifically mention OLED technology, but making a curved screen effectively requires it; the Galaxy S7 Edge uses a Super AMOLED panel, notes AppleInsider.

The prediction lines up with a July forecast by KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who thinks a 2017 iPhone will have a curved glass body and will switch from current models’ LCD displays to an OLED display. The latter will make it more flexible and...

The 2016 Apple Music Festival in London will be held...

Apple has announced its 2016 Apple Music Festival, a free annual concert series that will be held Sept. 18-30 at the London Roundhouse. The performing acts haven’t yet been named. Last year Pharrell Williams, One Direction, Florence + The Machine and Disclosure, Mumford & Sons, Carrie Underwood and Ellie Goulding, and others performed.

From the Olympic Non-Robbery to Ford Getting Out of...


There were three stories that caught my eye last week that I think deserve some additional discussion. One is the alleged robbery of U.S. Olympians followed by questions of whether it really happened because their phones weren't stolen. There may be a legitimate reason for that, and it suggests a lot of folks will be getting huge cellphone bills next month. Another eye-catching story is that Ford is getting out of the car business. The third is an NSA leak that has me wondering if we should reclassify the NSA as a criminal organization.

The new Streisand Effect: Barbra calls Tim Cook to...

Enlarge

Those of us with difficult last names are accustomed to quietly bearing the indignities of constant mispronunciation, especially from digital assistant programs like Apple's Siri. My last name (Geuss) is pronounced "Gice," but that pronunciation is so far from being phonetically logical in English that if people get close—calling me Guess or Goose—I generally don't correct them. Siri insists on calling me "Megan Juice," which is not even close (and is also a beverage). I let it slide. After all, what recourse do I have?

None. That's how much recourse I have. But I am no Barbra Streisand.

Streisand, it seems, went on NPR this...

Here’s the Not So Secret Roadmap for 4K UHD TV

The old, unconsidered notion about 4K UHD TV is that it’s a gimmick by the TV industry. The assumption has been that 4K resolution can’t be utilized unless one sits really close, and the familiar HDTV is good enough. In fact, the industry is about the business of implementing a gradual, exciting technology roadmap. While this means that 4K UHD TV will be gradually including more advanced technology elements than simple resolution improvement, it also means buyers will have to be careful when and how they migrate away from older equipment. It’s all on Friday’s Particle Debris column, page 2.

Apple, Samsung Capture All Of Industry's...

Continuing to operate on razor thin margins, smartphone manufacturers other than Samsung and Apple are bleeding money. Apple accounted for 75 percent of the smartphone's profits in the second quarter this year, down from 90 percent a year ago, according to Canaccord Genuity. Samsung, which has reported strong sales thanks to its Galaxy S7 series of smartphones, accounted for more than 30 percent of the industry, the research added. ZDNet reports: While this tale could revolve around Apple vs. Samsung the larger question is this: Why would any company want to make smartphones? Let's get real. All the profits go to Apple (high end) or Samsung (high end and scale). The rest of the players in the market don't make money and get disrupted by whatever vendor is flavor of the month? Remember that Xiaomi was supposed to be the next big thing in China and elsewhere, but is now being disrupted by Oppo and Vivo. A quarter from now Oppo and Vivo will be thumped by some smartphone manufacturer...

The Cellphone That Assembles Itself (Video)

You know that Arthur C. Clarke line about sufficiently advanced technology being indistinguishable from magic? Behold a little wizardry from M.I.T. in the form of a “self-assembling” cellphone. Fast Company did a story on a lab at the university that designed a cellphone with six components. They are designed in such a way that when jostled together in a tumbler, the parts that fit together, stick together, while the parts that don’t, don’t. The possibilities for cheap assembly could be staggering—in this case, it could help put a cellphone into the hands of almost anyone. But the principles are not limited to cellphones. It’s fascinating to watch, and if you find it interesting, check out the full article.

Apple has apparently acquired Gliimpse, a health startup whose stated aim is to allow any American to pull together a comprehensive picture of their health, which they would be free to share with medical professionals as desired.

The acquisition reportedly happened “earlier this year” and has yet to be noted by Apple or published on the Gliimpse web site. For its part, Apple offered its usual “non-denial” statement that it ‘buys smaller technology companies from time to time, and we generally do not discuss our purpose or plans.’

Interestingly, Gliimpse founder Anil Sethi started out as an Apple engineer back in the late 80s, before becoming a serial entrepreneur after forming and taking public his company Sequoia Software. He said that he formed Gliimpse out of a frustration at...
