Hands-on with Nomad’s Horween leather wallets with...

I’ve always liked the idea of using a battery case, but with a phone like the iPhone 7 Plus, a lack of battery life isn’t a problem that I encounter regularly enough to warrant the extra bulk. I also like the idea of a wallet case to help keep up with my driver’s license and credit cards, but with a phone as large as the iPhone 7 Plus, I find such a setup to be a tad unwieldy.

The folks over at Nomad have come up with a solution that seems to address both of my issues, and depending on your needs, it might be a worthwhile solution for you as well.

The company’s Bi-fold and Slim Leather Wallet give you a place to keep all of your credit cards, identification, and other necessary items in a standalone form factor. In other words, it’s a traditional wallet setup that’s completely independent of your iPhone. But the kicker here is that the Nomad wallets feature an integrated portable battery with a...

Amazon Intros Chime Video Chat Service

Apple has FaceTime, Microsoft has Skype, Google has Hangouts, and now Amazon has Chime. They’re all video chat services, and now Amazon is in on the game across the Mac, Windows, iOS, and Android. Chime is more business focused with features like 100-people conference call support and corporate directories. It’s free for one-on-one conversations, adds in screen sharing and the corporate directory feature for US$2.50 a month per user, and $15 a month gets you all that plus meeting scheduling along with  video and audio recording. Apple doesn’t have much to worry about since FaceTime targets individual users, but Skype and Hangouts better watch out because Chime is clearly targeting their users.

On Tuesday, the network launched new ways to watch videos on your iOS and Android device. You can now watch vertical videos in full-screen, autoplay videos with sound, and watch picture-in-picture while scrolling down your News Feed. In addition, Facebook confirmed the forthcoming launch of TV apps for Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, and Samsung Smart TV.

Previously, all videos on Facebook’s News Feed autoplayed on silent, and you had to tap on the picture to hear sound. Now, Facebook is giving you the option to autoplay videos with sound that fades in and out as you scroll through the video on your feed.

Photon Strike is a Fun Arcade Scroller for iOS

You may known of my penchant for tower defense games, but I also have a not-so-secret love for arcade scrollers. The good news for your time-sucking pleasure is that I found a new one called Photon Strike. It’s a solid vertical scroller for iPhone an iPad (I played on iPad) with good graphics and fast action. In fact, it’s very fast. It’s similar to others in the genre. You have to steer your ship (with your fingers), firing as long as your finger is on the screen. Waves of enemies fly around the screen, and you have to shoot/avoid them. Powerups are available throughout each level, and you get credits for each enemy you destroy for buying upgrades. It’s free to download, but for real-world cash, you can get yourself a whole heap of credits. You can also watch videos for free credits. Every five waves there’s a boss at the end. It’s ad-supported, but the ads go away...

Apple’s shares traded above $134.54 today, surpassing a previous all-time intraday high set in April 2015. What’s more, the tech giant has reclaimed its throne as the only $700 billion publicly-traded U.S. company, riding a post-earnings rally and a more favorable outlook on Wall Street.

Goldman Sachs raised its price target on the stock on Monday, citing Apple's 3-D sensing technology, while UBS released a note stating the market is undervaluing the firm's services business. The last time Apple broke above the $700 billion level was in February 2015.  (Hey, check out our stock ticker in the right sidebar.)

Security researchers have discovered a macOS malware program that’s likely part of the arsenal used by the Russian cyberespionage group blamed for hacking into the U.S. Democratic National Committee last year.

The group, which is known in the security industry under different names, including Fancy Bear, Pawn Storm, and APT28, has been operating for almost a decade. It is believed to be the sole user and likely developer of a Trojan program called Sofacy or X-Agent.

X-Agent variants for Windows, Linux, Android, and iOS have been found in the wild in the past, but researchers from Bitdefender have now come across what appears to be the first macOS version of the Trojan.

Apple’s original TV shows are almost ready for prime...

This spring, Apple plans to release its first two original series, Planet of the Apps and full-length episodes of the popular Carpool Karaoke segment hosted by James Corden. It’s not exactly a bold move: Netflix, Amazon, and reportedly even Facebook are making original TV. But unlike Netflix, Amazon, and Facebook, Apple isn’t a content company. It’s a hardware one. But that’s about to change—at least if Apple has anything to say about it.

Services have been a consistent bright spot in Apple’s quarterly earnings reports, and Apple Music is lumped in with that category. The $10/month streaming music service has racked up 20 million paying subscribers in the year and a half since it launched. But Apple can’t rely on music exclusives, which have limited windows, to differentiate itself. So the company is turning to original video content.

Development of Twitterrific has continued exclusively on iOS since 2013. The folks at the Iconfactory say that the Mac version is missing many recent Twitter features and Twitterrific for iOS refinements. 

The Kickstarter project is for funding a reboot of Twitterrific for Mac (codename: Phoenix). The goal is to build a minimal product within six or seven months.   There are several pledge levels available and all of them include a license to the final product.

A view to a kill

Like many of us here in Canada and the US, as a kid I sat down on Sunday evening’s to watch “The Wonderful World of Disney”. They often had “documentaries” about various animals. As an adult, I learned many of them weren’t in fact documentaries but often staged to get the desired response from the audience. I still like nature documentaries (I’m a huge fan of the “Planet Earth” series) but I’m much more wary of the staging that is possible.

Review: 1More Triple Driver In-Ear Headphones

In the past year or two, the headphone market has seen a surge of new brands offering "budget" IEMs. When we first heard about the cult following that San Diego based 1More had gathered, we hoped that the company was anything other than just "one more" budget IEM maker. We were pleasantly surprised to learn that the company's name is actually a reference to their rigorous quality control testing which, according to 1More, ensures that their headphones can survive a cycle in a washing machine. Though our testing procedures don't involve the laundry, our time with 1More's Triple Driver IEM ($99) was more than enough to convince us that its popularity is well-deserved.

Videoconferencing apps are nothing new; in fact, the market seems to be filled with all sorts of entrants, old (like Skype) and new (like Zoom).

Chime offers "exceptional" audio and video quality, meetings call participants so that everyone joins at once and individuals don't have to fumble for call-in numbers or access codes, and participants (up to 16 on a desktop or 8 on a mobile device) can see each other -- all the same size -- in small square windows.

Much of Twitter’s brand identity dates back to Twitterrific which was the first client built for the service, but Twitter infamously made it difficult for developers to make a business out of Twitter apps a few years ago with a tokenization system and API limitations.

The result has been almost zero competition in the Mac Twitter client space and a lackluster official app. Development for Twitterrific for Mac has been financially unsustainable so the desktop client has become outdated with every change Twitter makes to the service.

Now Iconfactory which developers Twitterrific is launching a new Kickstarter campaign called Project Phoenix that aims to fund development of a modern Twitterrific for Mac.

Opinion: Why fake news is a huge threat to democracy...

There’s a joke about a time-traveller from the early 20th Century arriving today and asking someone what has changed. The present-day person pulls an iPhone out of their pocket and says: ‘Well, we all carry around this pocket computer that gives us instant access to the sum total of human knowledge.’ The time traveller looks stunned. ‘Wow, what do you do with it?’ they ask. ‘Mostly we watch cat videos.’

The Internet has been, in the main, a hugely positive development. We do have instant access to information on pretty much any subject under the sun, or, indeed, beyond it. We can communicate with people on the other side of the world, for free, as easily as we can those on the next street. We can virtually travel the world, exploring streets in distant locations from our armchair. And very much more.

The Internet also has its dark side, of course. But it’s the subversion of one of its most positive attributes – easy access to information – that poses one of the...

News: Apple patents another way to scan fingerprints...

Apple has been granted a patent for a new type of fingerprint reading technology that doesn’t require a dedicated scanning sensor. The patent was originally filed by LuxVue before that company was bought by Apple in 2014. The design uses a combination of micro-LED light and infrared diodes to detect a pattern, making it possible to scan a fingerprint without the use of the capacitive metal ring in Apple’s current Touch ID sensor. The improvement…

Planet of the Apps Trailer Teases Spring Premiere

Apple’s reality TV series Planet of the Apps is coming this spring and the first trailer giving us a glimpse into the show is out. It features Jessica Alba, Gwyneth Paltrow, Gary Vanderchuk, and Will.i.am teaming up with app developers who make it through an escalator pitch phase to work towards landing US$10 million in funding and a featured spot on the App Store. Planet of the Apps will stream on Apple Music without commercials, and could give us an interesting behind-the-scenes look into the app development process. Still, based on the trailer—and keep in mind I’m not the reality TV demographic—Carpool Karaoke sounds a lot more interesting.

Drag and drop to make your own mix of rap and pop

Drag a song from the left onto a song on the right, then sit back and listen.

This works really well. Seems to me, this would make an excellent app, especially if you could figure out a general approach that mapped all the songs in a playlist. I see possibilities here.

Startup to launch 103 satellites in one go, image...

Quartz:

On Feb. 14, an Indian PSLV rocket will attempt to set a record by deploying 103 small satellites in a single launch, including 88 satellites owned by Planet. With a successful launch, the San Francisco-based imaging startup will operate a total of 143 satellites—the most of any company in the world.

If all goes according to plan, Planet expects to be able to image the entire Earth daily; right now it covers about a third of the world’s landmass every 24 hours.

And:

The US government technically prohibits American companies from using India’s rockets, since the company that markets them, Antrix, is state-owned and arguably distorts the market for space access. The rule is in part designed to protect American rocket-makers from competition, but also to protest Indian policies that effectively block foreign satellite companies from doing business there.

Yet with so few options available to small satellite firms, the US has increasingly...

T-Mobile under CEO John Legere doesn’t like to cede the spotlight to a rival carrier. True to form, T-Mobile struck back at Verizon’s new unlimited plan late Monday as the “un-carrier” announced new features to bring its unlimited plan in line with Verizon’s.

The new features to T-Mobile’s unlimited plan, dubbed T-Mobile One, include a monthly allowance of 10GB for mobile hotspot over LTE. After hitting the 10GB limit, T-Mobile drops mobile hotspot users down to 3G speeds. T-Mobile also added HD video streaming quality. Previously, video streams on T-Mobile One were limited to 480p resolution—standard definition.

Previous rumors have suggested that only this top-end device would get the iPhone 8 name, while the two other models would be labelled the 7s and 7s Plus.

The use of mobile apps for business is heating up with nearly 80% of companies using more than 10 apps for business, according to MobileIron, a company “founded on the idea that mobile apps and data would become fundamental to mobilizing business workflows.” And Apple’s apps are doing well.

The top 10 most popular managed mobile business apps in the world include: Webex, AnyConnect, Concur, Adobe Acrobat, Pulse Secure, Keynote, Numbers, Pages, Google Maps, and Word, according to MobileIron. And among the most popular enterprise apps are adoption metrics for Apple's Volume Purchase Program (VPP) and Device Enrollment Program (DEP).

Also interesting is that the show is being designed around an app which will let you pause the show and dive deeper into a specific app or concept. This is very non-linear. I think it would be a mistake to pigeonhole this as a traditional reality show.

Rumor: 5.8-inch ‘iPhone 8’ will sport a glass-with-...

According to DigiTimes Research, Apple’s 2017 smartphone line-up with include a 5.8-inch iPhone with a glass casing reinforced by a stainless steel frame and a 4.7-inch iPhone with an aluminum frame.

The design for a 5.5-inch model's chassis has yet to be confirmed, the article says. The reinforced glass chassis' stainless steel metal frame will be supplied by Foxconn Technology and US-based Jabil Circuit, while the aluminum-alloy chassis will be supplied by Catcher Technology, according to DigiTimes. Since the 5.8-inch model is expected to adopt an OLED panel, the smartphone's price is estimated at more than $1,000, the report says.

Chances this rumor is true (IMHO): 90%. Heck, there are so many rumors about the “iPhone 8” that some of them will materialize and others won’t.

Planet of the Apps celebrates the world of apps and the talented people who create them. Hosted by Zane Lowe and featuring advisers Jessica Alba, Gwyneth Paltrow, Gary Vaynerchuk and will.i.am, the series highlights developers who have the vision to shape the future, solve real problems, and inspire change within our daily lives.

This feels like a mix of Shark Tank and The Voice. As a developer and investor, I’m intrigued by the concept. The hard part is to straddle the channel between broad entertainment and entrepreneurial detail. Keep it fun while still teaching some skill or lesson.

I’ll definitely give this a watch. Trailer is embedded in the main Loop post.

Apple patent hints at iPhone/iPad displays with...

Apple has been granted a patent (number 9,570,002) for an “interactive display panel with IR diodes,” which shows that Apple has looked into iPhone and iPad screens with built-in Touch ID without the need for a dedicated button. Such a feature has been rumored for inclusion in the “iPhone 8,” which is expected to arrive this fall.

Here’s Apple’s summary of the invention (which is heavy in tech-speak): “Exemplary methods and systems use a micro light emitting diode (LED) in an active matrix display to emit light and a sensing IR diode to sense light. A display panel includes a display substrate having a display region, an array of subpixel circuits, and an array of selection devices. Each subpixel circuit includes a driving circuit to operate a corresponding infrared (IR) emitting LED in a light emission mode. Each selection device may be coupled to a corresponding sensing IR diode to operate the corresponding sensing IR diode in a light sensing mode.”

Google Map adds shareable place lists

Google blog:

Starting today, you can create lists of places, share your lists with others, and follow the lists your friends and family share with you—without ever leaving the Google Maps app (Android, iOS).

And:

Open the Google Maps app and find that BBQ spot you’ve been wanting to try. Tapping on the place name and then the “Save” icon adds the place to one of several pre-set lists like “Want to Go” or “Favorites.” You can also add the restaurant to a new list that you name yourself, like “Finger Lickin’ BBQ.” To recall the lists you’ve created, go to Your Places (in the side menu) and then open the saved tab. Icons for the places you’ve saved to lists will appear on the map itself.

I love the concept. Only issue I have is that I tend to move between different Google accounts and if I am logged in to the wrong account, I won’t see my place lists. One workflow is to always share place lists with all accounts, then each added place will automatically...

GEAR4 releases the Buckingham flip case for the iPad

GEAR4 has launched its new Buckingham iPad TPU flip case range in the U.S.. It features D3O shock absorbing technology for enhanced impact protection. The case is available for the iPad mini 4, Air2/Pro 9.7-inch and Pro 12.9-inch.

The D3O impact technology used in the Buckingham case is the same material found in U.S. military combat gear, football helmets and protective wear used by pro athletes. GEAR4 is the first to use an injection molded grade of D3O technology to deliver more impact protection.

GEAR4 designers combined this technology with a functional design, featuring a landscape standing option for working at a desk, table or on a lap. The Buckingham has four slots for business or credit cards, and two larger slots for important documents. Its clip closure ensures the device, as well as valuable items, are kept safe during transport.

The Buckingham is available in black with orange, blue and grey trim. It costs $59....

When Apple joins a product group, it might be looking into developing units embracing that technology.

Apple is now listed as one of the 213 members of the Wireless Power Consortium. It was not present in a cached version of the page from a week ago.

Previous rumors had indicated that Apple was planning to incorporate a wireless charging technology in its next-gen iPhone, but had been holding out for a long-range charging solution that didn’t require a charging pad. It was also thought that Apple might opt for simple inductive charging for the device.

One of those reports even indicated that Apple will not include a charger in the box with the iPhone, instead offering it as an optional accessory at extra cost.

IHS Technology analyst Vicky Yussuff says that the company couldn’t wait any longer and offered the following comment:

The success of wireless charging adoption from Apple’s competitors is something that Apple can no longer ignore. IHS...

Cook, who pointed to false stories that spread like wildfire across the internet as a “big problem in a lot of the world,” stated that tech companies have a responsibility to intervene,

“It has to be ingrained in the schools, it has to be ingrained in the public,” Cook said. “There has to be a massive campaign. We have to think through every demographic. We need the modern version of a public-service announcement campaign. It can be done quickly if there is a will.”

Apple should make its own Mac speakers again

Not only do I want Apple to get back into the external computer display business, I want the company to make its own speakers for the Mac again. My suggestion: an updated version of the Apple Pro speakers (pictured), which Apple created along with Harman Kardon.

The “orb” speakers (circa 2012 if memory serves me correctly) looked great sitting next to a Mac. They connected to the Mac via a single cable that provided 20 watts of sound (10 watts/channel) to the speakers with a frequency range of 70 hertz to 20 kilohertz. Apple could either offer a wired version (which would use the power your Mac and require no power supply) or a wireless version (which would, of course, need its own power supply) of the 2017 Apple Pro speakers.

I doubt the tech giant will do this, but I can always hope. If it doesn’t, at least perhaps the company will...
