Help People with Insecure AirDrop Settings in...

I kind of love PetDrop Club. And by kind of, I mean I totally love PetDrop Club. This is more an idea than anything else and it works like this. “Find strangers with insecure inbound AirDrop settings, and send them kind, fluffy reminders that some people are nice, and maybe also to update their settings.” How do you do that? By sharing an image and looking for AirDrop recipients you don’t know. Or, put another way, “Reward strangers for their lack of device privacy by sending them pictures of your dog.” The site for PetClub Drop is funny, but the issue behind it is more serious. Folks who don’t lock down AirDrops to their Contacts (or turn it off) run the risk of having strangers drop all manner of unwanted stuff on their devices. There’s a PetDrop Club Google Group, too, though there’s no activity yet.

AWT News Update: August 16, 2017

Yep, that's allegedly a 65-inch Apple TV set on that table. Thank you, Mr. Blurrycam

Smart locks turn dumb after a failed firmware update, Tony Fadell is backing a high-speed wireless startup, and Mr. Blurrycam loves a big Apple TV set:

  • Some LockState smart locks were bricked due to a failed firmware update, proving once again that the Internet of Things is prone to human error
  • iPod creator Tony Fadell is back in the news, this time with Keyssa and its high-speed, short-distance data transfer product Keys
  • A 65-inch OLED Apple TV? We don't think so, especially after looking at blurry photos

Feral Interactive announced that BioShock Remastered is coming to macOS on August 22nd. The Remastered version of BioShock brings the Art Deco first person shooter to 1080p, but you’re going to need a Mac from 2013 or later to run it.

Hopefully, Apple can produce something more compelling than “Planet of the Apps” and “Carpool Karaoke.”

Analyst: Apple Watch Series 3 won’t support...

In a note to clients — as reported by AppleInsider — KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicts that the Apple Watch with LTE, expected to debut next month, won’t support traditional cellular voice calls this year.

He thinks Apple will add support for calls in a future software update. In the interim, he believes FaceTime and third-party apps such as Skype could serve as stand-ins.

"Technologically, while it's feasible for LTE Apple Watch to support voice service and replace iPhones' phone function, we think it must first improve the user experience of data transmission (not via iPhone),” Kuo wrote.

The analyst feels that the lack of call support will make negotiations with carriers easier. Plus, the move would allow Apple to scrap 3G connectivity entirely, relying solely on LTE and allowing for a...

Home automation can be great, but it’s not without downsides, as owners of the LockState RemoteLock 6i have discovered. An errant software update rendered the remote control aspects of their locks inoperable, although the locks can still
be unlocked with a key. Airbnb hosts are particularly affected because RemoteLock locks can be integrated directly with Airbnb to manage and monitor Airbnb properties remotely. The worst part? To fix the problem, users must ship their locks to LockState to replace the firmware, which takes 5 to 7 days, or LockState can send a replacement lock, which will take 14 to 18 days. Either way, owners of these locks must physically remove them to address this digital problem.

If you're a subscriber to a cable or satellite service that offers ESPN and use the ESPN Apple TV app, check later today for a new version of the app that will let you watch four live feeds from ESPN simultaneously.

The update was reported by Recode today, and apparently users just need to long-press on the Siri Remote while watching an ESPN feed to invoke a split-screen viewing capability. With the capability, it's possible to display four streams at the same time. ESPN expects the new feature to be popular this fall, when it can broadcast up to 55 college football games on any Saturday.

Face ID anti-FUD: Easing anxiety over the unannounced

Rene Ritchie, iMore:

Apple hasn’t even announced Face ID, the rumored facial identity scanner that would join or replace Touch ID, the fingerprint identity scanner, on the next generation of iPhones 8, but already we’re seeing a great deal of concern and even fear over how it will and won’t work.

And:

One of the biggest areas of fear, uncertainty, and doubt surrounding a potential Face ID facial identity scanner is that it will make it easier to law enforcement and government agencies to gain access to our devices.

Rene digs into the concern itself (someone could grab my phone and point it at my face to unlock it) and explores the validity of that worry.

A solid read, all the way through. Rene is a smart cookie.

Personally, I see Face ID and Touch ID as roughly equivalent in terms of someone using me to break into my phone. Add to that, Apple has not yet announced such a product. I’d prefer to save my worry for something a bit more tangible...

∞ Accidentally Famous: The story behind the original...

[VIDEO] This is from a Ted Talk Susan Bennett gave last year. Watch the video embedded in the main Loop post. One particular nugget (about 1:17 in):

One of the original engineers was from Norway. His name was Dag Kittlaus. He was responsible for naming Siri. In Norwegian, the name Siri means “beautiful woman who guides you to victory”.

Fascinating to see Susan Bennett tell these origin stories. My sense, from the iOS 11 beta, it that Siri is moving toward a more generic, machine generated voice. Yet, in the latest commercials (with The Rock), Susan appears to do all the Siri voice work.

It’ll be interesting to see how all this will play out. Will Susan be “classic Siri”?

And:

Recently, I bought a book—quaint, I know—and I’m probably the only person to have purchased this book or anything like it in more than 20 years.

It’s a reference book, the kind that you can still pick up at Barnes and Noble today. But it’s best described as what you’d get if you combined a phone book, a Matthew Lesko free money guide, and the internet.

That book is really the crux of the article. A fascinating look back at a time before Google, when the Internet was but a toddler.

Apple readies $1 billion war chest for Hollywood...

Wall Street Journal:

Apple Inc. (AAPL) has set a budget of roughly $1 billion to procure and produce original content over the next year, according to people familiar with the matter–a sign of how serious the iPhone maker is about making a splash in Hollywood.

Combined with the company’s marketing clout and global reach, that immediately makes Apple a considerable competitor in a crowded market where new media players and traditional media companies are vying to acquire original shows. The figure is about half what Time Warner Inc.’s HBO spent on content last year and on par with estimates of what Amazon.com spent in 2013, the year after it announced its move into original programming.

And:

Programming costs can range from more than $2 million an episode for a comedy to more than $5 million for a drama. An episode of some high-end shows such as “Game of Thrones” can cost more than $10 million to produce.

BioShock Remastered comes to the Mac on August 22

Feral Interactive has announced that BioShock Remastered, a version of the first-person shooter running in 1080p, will be released for macOS on Aug. 22 to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the game’s original release. It was originally developed by Irrational Games and published by 2K for Windows and console.

Here’s how the game is described: “Set in an alternative 1960, BioShock Remastered plunges players into Rapture, an individualistic utopia gone badly wrong. To survive the onslaughts of the city’s deranged inhabitants, players must rewrite their own genetic codes, and find creative ways to combine their terrifying new powers with devastating weapons. With a thought-provoking storyline, BioShock is at once beautiful, thrilling and frightening, and explores profound ideas about science, politics and human nature.”

Apple Pay expands to 22 additional U.S. institutions...

If you’re traveling in Russia, China or just looking for additional U.S. banks that support Apple Pay, you’ll like this.

In recent days, Apple added Australia’s Latitude Financial Services and RACQ to the roster of banks and institutions that support Apple Pay. In China, six institutions — Beijing Rural Commercial Bank, Haikou Rural Commercial Bank, Jiangsu Jiangnan Rural Commercial Bank, Jiangsu Jiangyin Rural, Commercial Bank, Shengjing Bank and Yunnan Rural Credit Cooperatives activated Apple Pay while Dahsing Bank in Hong Kong jumped on board with support for issued Mastercard and Visa credit cards.

Apple Pay also went live for a number of Russian institutions this month with Bank “Devon-Credit,” Credit Union “Payment Center” Ltd. (Mastercard Prepaid cards), Khlynov, Kuban Credit, Levoberezhny, Primsotcbank and Sovcombank activating Apple Pay within the past two weeks.

Finally, customers of UK’s Cumberland Building Society can now take advantage of Apple’...

Rumor: Next-gen iPhone could see increased thickness...

The next-gen iPhone could be a bit thicker than the current model.

A current rumor has it that one planned change for the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhones expected next month is a material return from aluminum backs to glass, and now a new rumor claims that shift will result in a slightly thicker casing.

Giga Apple, a German web blog, has cited a case maker who claims to have contacts within iPhone maker Foxconn. The blog has reported at least a 0.1mm increase in thickness. The blog quoted a leaked spec document that stated that the upcoming iPhone 7s will have a slight increase on all dimensions.

Apple has increased the thickness of its iPhone models in the past, such as when the iPhone 6 went to the iPhone 6s and increased the thickness by 0.2mm due to 3D Touch and the pressure sensitive display. This year the change, if true, is expected to be due to the shift to glass from aluminum which serves as a pass through for rumored wireless (inductive) charging....

The ROMOSS UPower 10000mAh Power Bank — which retails for $49.99 but can be obtained at Amazon for less — is a two-in-one hybrid power supply that comes in handy if you need a home or travel charger for just two gadgets.

With its “smart” dual USB output (5V/1A and 5V/2.1A), you can charge, for instance, an iPhone and an iPad simultaneously. I charged my iPhone 7s about four times and my wife’s iPad mini 1.4 times before having to recharge the power bank.

The UPower’s self-charging technology automatically adjusts the current and voltage. With its 5V 2.1A input, it can get fully charged in under seven hours. Four LED lights indicates battery level. The UPower enters dormant mode automatically...

Apple patent involves Siri helping with...

Siri, Apple’s personal digital assistant, may one day help you determine why you’re having problems with the accessibility features on an iOS, watchOS, tvOS and perhaps even a macOS device. The company has been granted a patent (number 9,733,821) for “voice control to diagnose inadvertent activation of accessibility features.”

According to the patent, the electronic device in question receives a user input indicating that the user is having difficulty operating the electronic device. The device then determines whether a setting was changed on the device within a predetermined time period prior to receiving the user input. When a first setting was changed within the predetermined time period prior to receiving the user input, the device restores the changed setting to a prior setting.

Accessibility features provide solutions that allow the elderly, young children, or people with disabilities to operate electronic devices. Apple says that, while these features are...

Online consumers' preferred payment methods...

Card payments account for the largest share of e-commerce revenues in Europe, followed by e-wallets like PayPal and Apple Pay. However, research cited in a new report from Research and Markets reveals how online consumers' preferred payment methods vary dramatically across different countries.

In the UK, Belgium and France, the leading payment method is bank card. In Italy, bank cards are about equal with PayPal in usage, but online consumers from Germany and Switzerland prefer invoices at a much higher rate than cards. Across Eastern Europe, online bank card payments are increasing, but cash on delivery is still the most preferred option in countries like Romania and Hungary.

A survey cited in the report names convenience, security, and speed as the leading criteria when deciding on a payment method in Europe. When looking at the consumer decision to make payments via mobile devices, shoppers are mostly...
