Apple’s Cover Flow Targeted in Patent Lawsuit Again

Apple's Cover Flow feature from OS X is the target of a new infringement lawsuit from the patent holding company TriDim, and this isn't the first time it's been part of an intellectual propert case. The company is claiming 3D-like user interface elements in Cover Flow, Time Machine, and Mobile Safari in iOS 7 and iOS 8 infringe on two patents it holds.

The Mac Observer Spin: Mirror Worlds wasn't able to make its Cover Flow patent infringement case against Apple stick, and based on TriDim's patent descriptions this new case will likely have a hard go of it, too.

10 clear cases to show off your iPhone's design

In the clear

Image by Macworld UK

Phone cases are a necessary evil. They add extra weight and thickness to your iPhone, and they cover up the pretty gold, silver, or space gray exterior you spent an extra five minutes picking out. But you suck it up, because it’s better to slap an ugly case on your iPhone than it is to pay for a pricey screen repair.

BlackBerry Messenger for iPhone (it’s OK to laugh)

If you can’t beat ‘em, tell the government to force ‘em to let you beat ‘em. That’s the approach BlackBerry CEO John Chen wants to take to mobile software development. Today Chen wrote in a blog post on the BlackBerry website that he believes the issue of net neutrality requires the government to not only promote and protect neutrality not only among wireless and broadband carriers, but also among app and content providers.

Chen argues that it’s pointless to tell Comcast, Time Warner, Verizon, and other carriers that they can’t discriminate against certain data while still allowing applications and content providers to discriminate against certain platforms.

I’m kind of ambivalent about this, to be honest. Google has never done a very good job selling phones, so I don’t know how they will make this work. I’m just having a hard time wrapping my head around it.

Users need the Microsoft HoloLens headset, which Kipman described as "the first fully untethered computer."

Forums: Troubleshooting

After reconfiguring my MDC (which had something screwed up in OD), I'm having an issue with my Xsan volume listing in Server app. It shows that Xsan is up and running, but the volumes window is blank. I was able to successfully add a backup MDC and they both are able to find each other without issue, however neither the MDC or backup MDC show the volume in the window. They do, however, both mount the volume without issue.

There is one issue, that I know of, that I'm pretty sure this is causing an issue for. Whenever I add the profile to a new client machine the volume does not mount without forcing a mount using "xsanctl mount Media". Once mounted, there are no problems that I can tell, however I haven't used it with this issue long enough to tell. Essentially it seems like it can find the volume, it just doesn't know that it's available...

Our latest roundup of Mac accessories includes new stands from BiteMyApple, Grovemade, and Twelve South—plus the prettiest external hard drive ever, from LaCie.

BiteMyApple

The $85 Ridge Stand is built to support MacBook Airs or Pros. It is made out of aluminum, and it tilts your keyboard forward for ergonomic handiness while you work. It’s light—less than a pound—for portability, and has rubber buffers to grip your laptop and hold it gently in place.

State of the Union press gallery “looks like a damn...

We’re used to seeing row upon row of Macbooks at tech press events, but the popularity of Apple’s laptop seems equally strong among mainstream journalists. The Huffington Post’s senior congressional reporter Michael McAuliff tweeted that the press gallery at last night’s State of the Union address “looks like a damn Apple ad.”

By far the majority of the laptops visible in the photo of the press gallery above the House floor have the familiar glowing Apple logo.

Wow. The press gallery over the House floor for #SOTU looks like a damn Apple ad. http://t.co/uubqdon5qc

BBC updating iOS news app with personalized feeds,...

The British Broadcasting Corporation has announced that its BBC News iPhone and iPad apps are being updated, with a lot more video, local news, ‘most popular’ links and–most interestingly of all–users able to add their own personalized news feeds.

In addition to pre-existing sections – including Top Stories, UK and Politics – users will be able to add specialised feeds of their choice, for example: Apps, Taylor Swift, Genetics, and Oban.

A new ‘My news’ section allows users to enter keywords which will be matched against tags entered by journalists to populate the personalized feed.

The BBC says that the UK version of both iOS and Android apps will be rolled out this week, with global...

Three cheers for the delightfully personal PowerBook...

In its recent ad for the MacBook Air, Apple demonstrated how much people loved it by showing the ways in which people had personalized theirs with stickers. And although my current 2008 MacBook Pro is stickerless, my previous MacBook and iBook were covered in them, so I get it.

Still, this personalization of the MacBook Air is very much despite Apple, not thanks to it. In 1996, however, Apple introduced a Mac that you were very definitely encouraged to customize: the PowerBook 1400 series with its BookCover feature. Part of the plain black lid slid off, and you could replace it instead with a piece of clear plastic under which you could position your own designs.

Get a second number to turn your iPhone or iPad into...

When you own a small business, the temptation to hand over a business card with your personal cell number plastered on it is natural. You’re merely offering a direct line to the person who can make decisions. Accessibility is a key selling point when touting the advantages of your business over larger corporations.

But you can oversell your accessibility—and the end result is interrupted dinners, missed birthday parties, and alarming calls at 2 in the morning. Customers want what they want, when they want it. These interruptions might be good for business, but they’re bad for personal health and relationships.

Carrying around a second phone to separate business from work is inconvenient and expensive—what about taking advantage of the devices you’re already carrying? The proliferation of apps offering virtual phone numbers has made it entirely possible to manage a secondary business line from your iOS device....

Apple acquires media analytics startup Semetric,...

The Guardian is reporting that Apple has acquired media analytics startup Semetric, apparently as part of the ongoing Beats Music relaunch. Of note, Semetric owns Musicmetrics, an analytics tool for artists to track the popularity of their music around the web.

Apple replied to the Guardian with its typical company acquisition statement:

“Apple buys smaller technology companies from time to time, and we generally do not discuss our purpose or plan,” said Apple in a statement provided to the Guardian, although Semetric declined to comment.

The Musicmetrics platform measures things like BitTorrent activity, social network reach and other sales data to offer comprehensive reports on the uptake and reactions of the general public for a given song. The Guardian says...

Apple grabs 33% smartphone marketshare in South...

Apple’s marketshare in South Korea has skyrocketed in the last quarter, driven by strong demand for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, according to data by Counterpoint. Apple increased its share of sales from 15% to 33%, more than doubling its market power in one quarter.

Historically, Samsung has dominated South Korea, largely due to geographic advantages, but Apple’s gains now threaten the #1 spot. Apple is the first foreign smartphone company ever to surpass 20% marketshare in the region, taking the number 2 spot. Samsung’s marketshare fell from 60% in November to 46% and (now third-place) South Korean LG Electronics fell to 14%.

In an interview with Bloomberg, Biver called the upcoming gadget “a fantastic product, an incredible achievement” and said he’ll likely...

The iPad Pro’s stylus

KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is back with another report outlining his belief that Apple will launch a stylus as an optional accessory for the company’s rumored 12.9-inch “iPad Pro”. With the new iPad’s larger screen, it will likely prove popular with enterprise and creative users who tend to have more need for a stylus and Kuo believes Apple will fill that need with an in-house solution.

A stylus may work for creatives, but I think the using a finger will still be the preferred method for the majority of people.

Other passwords in the top 10 include “qwerty,” “dragon,” and “football.”

Dropbox will no longer support OS X 10.5 or older...

Dropbox has announced through an email to users on older versions of OS X that it will soon be discontinuing support for computers running Leopard or other older versions of the operating system. Users still running anything older than OS X 10.6 will need to upgrade in order to continue using future versions of the Dropbox app.

Users who don’t upgrade will still be able to use the web-based Dropbox manager, but will be automatically signed out of the Mac app. From that point forward, they will not be able to login back into the Mac client until they are on a newer version of OS X.

The changes will go into effect on May 18th, so users still have plenty of time to upgrade their software (or hardware, if necessary). The full email is included below:

Hi,

“Samsung has been delaying the launch of this Tizen phone for a long time and when they finally did it, it turned out to be an under-powered phone,” said Mumbai-based filmmaker Samir Ahmed Sheikh as he shopped for a new phone for his wife.

The 3.15 megapixel primary camera and 300,000 pixel front camera are “like a phone from 2010″, he said.

From the Blogosphere With Love: A FOSSy Farewell


The past week has afforded plenty of fodder for conversation here in the Linux blogosphere: the MintBox Mini; the Steam for Linux file-deletion bug; and the latest in the Systemd saga, for example. However, this week seems like a good time to revisit some classic gems from days gone by. As chance would have it, several favorites focus on a theme that's particularly relevant round about this time of year. Can you guess? That's right -- it's the oh, so sweet spot that can be found at the intersection of Linux and Love.

Chrome for iOS adds Material Design, plays better...

Google has just updated Chrome for iOS to version 40, and the new browser adds new things from both Google and Apple's ecosystems. On the Google side, Chrome 40 is the latest of the company's iOS apps to pick up the new Material Design aesthetic introduced in Android 5.0. Other iOS apps like the Google search app and the Google Maps app had already picked up Material Design in iOS, so the UI may already be familiar to you.

On Apple's side of the fence, Chrome 40 adds support for the Handoff feature introduced in iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite—Chrome for iOS users should now be able to bounce webpages from their phones or tablets to their Macs, just as you can already do in Safari. Interestingly, Chrome for iOS can hand off pages to whatever your default OS X browser is, whether it's Chrome or Safari or something else. Apple's developer documentation says that OS X and iOS apps can only hand off data to other apps by the same developer.

Mac: LastPass for Mac

While we’ve generally been fans of more offline solutions for storing our passwords, there’s no disputing that the cloud-based password vault service LastPass service has a huge following, with a well-designed web portal and accompanying iOS apps. While the service has also long provided browser extensions to autofill passwords, a major missing piece – until now – has been an actual desktop app for Mac users. With LastPass for Mac (free), the company addresses this deficiency, providing a full-featured desktop client for managing your LastPass password database.

Rogue Amoeba has announced the release of Audio Hijack 3, the successor to the venerable Mac sound utility Audio Hijack Pro. This is a huge update—the first major one for Audio Hijack in ten years—and so comprehensive that this feels more like a successor to the old Audio Hijack rather than a continuation.

Rogue Amoeba has always made good, high quality software especially on the audio side.

Facebook cracks down on News Feed hoaxes

First it was spam. Then it was click-bait. Now Facebook is tackling hoaxes that pop up in News Feed because your gullible friends won’t stop liking and sharing obviously fake stories.

Hoaxes will probably never really go away, because Facebook isn’t going to delete any posts. Instead, the network is using your feedback to determine when a story is a scam. Now when you click to hide a story and banish it from your feed, Facebook offers a new option: “It’s a false news story.” If enough people report the post as false or misleading, the network will halt the story from spreading like wildfire.

Although Apple’s new iCloud Photo Library feature remains in beta at this point, iOS 8 still packs in a few nice little photo management features. One of the lesser-known of these is that you can now actually hide photos from showing up in your main timeline in the Photos app. To do this, simply tap-and-hold on a photo — either in the thumbnail or full-screen views — and a context menu will appear with a “Hide” option.
