Rez Infinite Rocks Worlds

Rez Infinite, one of the first virtual reality games for Sony's new PlaystationVR, this week earned praise from early reviewers for its graphics and immersing qualities. Sony announced the game -- an update of a remake -- last year. Featuring support for 1080p resolution graphics, along with 3D audio sound, Rez Infinite is designed for the PSVR, but it's also compatible with the regular PlayStation 4. Sega introduced the original Rez for the Dreamcast in 2001 and the PlayStation 2 a year later. It was a huge hit.

WSJ: Apple has approached Time Warner in recent...

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Apple isn’t totally ruling out a Time Warner acquisition as talks between the network and AT&T appear to be moving forward. Yesterday it was reported that AT&T is looking at the possibility of a merger with Time Warner, then today it was separately reported that the talks could be much further along than previously reported. Now the WSJ is adding that Apple is once again monitoring the situation closely and has even approached the company in the last few months…

Apps: App Diary: A New Life, NHL, Sago Mini Planes,...

Bigosaur’s A New Life ($1) is a text and graphic based life simulation game. Within 10 or 15 minutes, you’ll be able to lead a new person from birth to death, with choices made along the way presumably affecting your path. The concept was undeniably intriguing to me, and the game is interesting, too, in one particular way — it is both frustrating and strangely addictive (I don’t get it, either). Each year of your “life”…

Big DDoS attacks underway are causing major Internet...

Earlier this morning, Apple World Today may have been unavailable to our readers. That's because a number of large websites and web hosting providers based on the East coast of the US -- including our host Squarespace -- have been hit with a series of distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks. The attacks are continuing, taking down such sites as the New York Times, CNN, Twitter, Netflix, HBO Now, PayPal, and Reddit. 

The attacks initially targeted DNS provider Dyn's servers at about 11 AM ET, and were mitigated by the company's countermeasures. At about 12:20 PM ET, the attacks continued and the outages are now expanding to California, Texas, Washington, and even the UK. 

The attacks are now being monitored by the United States Department of Homeland Security, and the agency is "investigating all potential causes" of the massive disruption. 

DNS providers such as Dyn resolve site names like AppleWorld.Today to IP addresses so that web browsers may...

Most 'Genuine' Apple Chargers and Cables...

Apple says it bought Apple chargers and cables labeled as genuine on and found that nearly 90 percent of them to be counterfeit. The revelation comes in a federal lawsuit the company filed against a New Jersey company over what Apple says are fake products that were sold on Amazon. Engadget reports: When Apple got in touch with Amazon about the issue, the website told the former that it got most of its chargers from Mobile Star LLC. The iPhone-maker stressed that since counterfeit cables and chargers don't go through consumer safety testing and could be poorly designed, they're prone to overheating and catching fire. They might even electrocute users. Tim Cook and co. are now asking the court to issue an injunction against the defendant. They also want the court to order the seizure and destruction of all the fake chargers in addition to asking for damage

Podcast 530: Project Titan may not be an Apple Car

If a tree falls in the woods and no one's around, does it make a sound? And if an Apple Car is parked before it ever drives, was it even a car? Project Titan could be shifting gears, but in a world where artificial intelligence and augmented reality grow more and more important, maybe the car isn't the most interesting problem Apple can solve.

Oh, just a note: We recorded this on Tuesday, October 18, one day before Apple invited journalists to its October 27 "Hello Again" event (presumably to announce new Macs). So that's why we muse about how late the invitations are—they were!—but now the event is confirmed, and we'll unpack all the announcements for you next week, probably Friday but maybe late Thursday if we can get it done quickly.

External Link: Apple Reveals Its HomeKit Plans

Today you purchase and install HomeKit home automation devices in existing homes, but Apple wants to go beyond retrofits by building the technology into new homes. “We want to bring home automation to the mainstream,” Greg Joswiak, Apple’s vice president of product marketing, told Bloomberg. “The best place to start is at the beginning, when a house is just being created.” According to a survey by real-estate firm Trulia, twice as many people prefer a newly built house to a pre-owned property, so perhaps the boost that home automation needs is to become standard in new construction.

Apple is set to reveal new Macs on Thursday at what will likely be the last special event hosted at the company’s 1 Infinite Loop campus in Cupertino. Early next year Apple’s giant Campus 2 headquarters will open and include a dedicated theater for these types of events, so the surprise Mac event is one last hurrah for the current Apple HQ.

And even though it may be about to be replaced with something bigger and better, 1 Infinite Loop does have something fairly new of its own: a dedicated Apple Store that reopened last fall. Apple’s campus store has always sold exclusive collectables like T-shirts and pens, and the Jony Ive-designed retail store adds Apple products just like traditional Apple Stores.

The shirt styles and souvenirs offered change regularly,...

Macs End Up Costing 3 Times Less Than Windows PCs...

An anonymous reader shares a report on Yahoo (edited): Last year, Fletcher Previn became a cult figure of sorts in the world of enterprise IT. As IBM's VP of Workplace as a Service, Previn is the guy responsible for turning IBM (the company that invented the PC) into an Apple Mac house. Previn gave a great presentation at last year's Jamf tech conference where he said Macs were less expensive to support than Windows. Only 5% of IBM's Mac employees needed help desk support versus 40% of PC users. At that time, some 30,000 IBM employees were using Macs. Today 90,000 of them are, he said. And IBM ultimately plans to distribute 150,000 to 200,000 Macs to workers, meaning about half of IBM's approximately 370,000 employees will have Macs. Previn's team is responsible for all the company's PCs, not just the Macs. All told IBM's IT department supports about 604,000 laptops between employees and its 100,000+ contractors. Most of them are Windows machines -- 442,000 -- while 90,000 are Macs...

Beats 1 is Apple's free and global Apple Music radio station, and now the station has a new presence on the web -- a dedicated Facebook page

The station is currently highlighting an interview by Beats 1 DJ Zane Lowe with Lady Gaga, complete with quotes and short video clips. The page itself isn't yet verified on Facebook, although the verified Apple Music account shared a post from the Beats 1 page.

That Apple Music Facebook page has over 2 million likes at this point, and up until now Apple has marketed Beats 1 on that page. In order to build up viewers for the Beats 1 page, the Apple Music account is now sharing its posts. Beats 1 has a very popular Twitter account, so it was odd that Apple didn't see fit to include the station on Facebook as well up until now.

iPhone 7 cellular performance test: Qualcomm's...

With the iPhone 7, Apple diversified its modem supply for the first time. The company chose Intel and Qualcomm to provide baseband chipsets for two variations on the phone, the Intel version with GSM/WCDMA/LTE and Qualcomm’s with GSM/CDMA/WCDMA/TD-SCDMA/LTE support. Qualcomm’s modem powers the Verizon, Sprint, and SIM unlocked iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. If you have one of those versions, congrats! Your phone is capable of much better cellular reception than the Intel model, according to extensive testing from Cellular Insights.

You can check out the full test results, methodology, hardware details, and analysis here, and it’s definitely worth a read for the more technically minded. The bottom line is that the Intel variant of the iPhone 7 Plus consistently underperforms the Qualcomm version in LTE throughput. Intel’s chipset doesn’t support...

The iPhone 7/7 Plus account for 43% of U.S. iPhone...

The iPhone 7 and 7 Plus were only available for the final two weeks of the third quarter, but it accounted for 43% of Apple's U.S. iPhone sales during the period, according to a report by Consumer Intelligence Research Partners (CIRP).

"In a quarter with only two weeks of sales, iPhone 7 and 7 Plus grabbed significant share of iPhones sold," Josh Lowitz, CIRP partner and co-founder, told Investor’s Business Daily News. "We attribute this to slow iPhone sales in the weeks leading up to the launch of these two new models, as well as a positive reception for the new 7 and 7 Plus models.”

CIRP said the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus accounted for 43% of total U.S. iPhone sales last quarter, with iPhone 7 at 31% and iPhone 7 Plus at 12%. The lower-cost iPhone SE, in its first full quarter of availability, had a 9% share of iPhone sales in the U.S....

∞ Apple’s TV boss: ‘Television needs to be...

Eddy Cue, speaking at the Vanity Fair New Establishment Summit (via Business Insider):

“I do think television needs to be reinvented. Today, you live with a glorified VCR,” Cue said. “The problem is the interface.”

“It’s really hard to use [a cable box or satellite TV]. Setting something to record, if you didn’t watch something last night, if you didn’t set it to record, it’s hard to find, it may not be available. There may be some rights issues,” Cue said.

“It’s great to be able to tell your device, ‘I wanna watch the Duke basketball game, I don’t care what channel it’s on.’ I just want to watch the Duke basketball game. Today you got to bring in the TV, go through the guide, find which sports programs or whatever — it’s just hard to do.”

The state of television is in flux. Unlike the music industry, which moved to online purchases and then streaming, the dominant TV business model has yet to emerge. Apple is exploring all sides, trying to find their...

China has hit an industry record with the highest revenue quarter the Apple App Store has ever seen, according to a report from App Annie, a analytics services and market intelligence company.

“This past quarter was full of game-changing apps and unprecedented growth in revenue for iOS,” Lexi Sydow writes for App Annie. “ China shattered iOS revenue records with the highest reported this quarter to date for any country. China also not only maintained its spot as #1 for Games (which it earned last quarter), it is now the largest market in the world for iOS App Store revenue, earning a record $1.7 billion.”

Now leading the United States by over 15%, China’s growth is projected to climb further by 2020. To get the full report on China’s dominance in the App Store this quarter and other key trends, download the App Annie Index: Market Q3 2016.

However, Apple has been losing market share to domestic Chinese brands like OPPO, Vivo and Huawei. One bright note: the higher-margin iPhone 7 Plus seems to be out-selling the iPhone 7.

Apple Insider:

As reported by The MetroWest Daily News, police said the Apple Natick Collection outlet was the scene of a speedy burglary on Tuesday perpetrated by a group of seven unidentified individuals. Described as a “pack,” the suspects are believed to be teens or young men and women.


Wearing hoodies, the roving gang can be seen entering the mall at around 7:15 p.m., making a beeline straight for Apple. Once inside, the suspects gathered around display tables at the store’s entrance —iPhones are usually placed prominently on the sales floor to lure in passersby —ripped 19 iPhones from their security tethers and scrambled out. The heist was over in less than a minute.

There have been predictions for years that China would eventually be a larger market for Apple than the USA. The weak Chinese economy means that it hasn’t yet happened in hardware, but the latest App Annie data says that it’s already got there on the software side.

The highlight of this report is certainly China overtaking the U.S to become the largest market in the world for iOS App Store revenue — earning over $1.7 billion in Q3 2016. We predicted in Q1 that China’s rapid iOS revenue growth would drive it right past the U.S well before year’s end — China is now leading the U.S by over 15%.

The rapid growth in Chinese spending – a 500% increase in two years – is in line with earlier predictions. The stats also illustrate the...

Sometimes it’s the patent filings that inform you about the next cool thing around the corner.

With just a week before Apple’s October 27th media event, a newly discovered trademark filing has been unearthed online, suggesting a potential name for the OLED panel on the new MacBook Pro. According to information rounded up, a trademark filed by a company called “Presto Apps America LLC” for a device dubbed the “Magic Toolbar” could be Apple’s name for the touch bar panel on its new MacBook Pro line.

The digging unearthed a company known as “Presto Apps”, which was incorporated on January 22nd of this year and a filing for the trademark on February 5th. The cost of the trademark application was furthermore estimated to be around €16,000.

China outpaces U.S. in iOS App Store revenue

The Chinese user base is apparently even more app-crazy than its U.S. counterpart.

According to a new report out this morning from app intelligence firm App Annie, the country earned over $1.7 billion in Q3 2016, which puts it ahead of the U.S. by over 15 percent. The U.S. had been the number one iOS market since 2010.

Today, Chinese consumers spend more than 5 times the amount they were spending compared with just two years prior.

The report also predicts that China will drive the largest absolute revenue growth for any country by 2020.

The estimations are likely accurate – App Annie said at the beginning of the year that if China’s rapid App Store revenue growth continued at the same pace, it would overtake the U.S. by year’s end. This has now occurred.

iPhone 7 Plus Qualcomm LTE Modem Significantly...

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Mac Rumors: With the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus, Apple elected to use LTE modems from two different sources, Qualcomm and Intel. The A1778 and A1784 iPhone models use a GSM-only Intel XMM7360 modem while the A1660 and 1661 iPhone models use a GSM/CDMA-compatible Qualcomm MDM9645M modem. Apple's decision has already caused some disappointment among customers because the GSM-only Intel modem is not compatible with as many carrier networks as the GSM/CDMA Qualcomm modem, and now independent testing conducted by Cellular Insights suggests there are some significant performance differences between the two modems, with the Qualcomm modem outperforming the Intel modem. Using an RS TS7124 RF Shielded Box, two RS CMW500, one RS CMWC controller, and four Vivaldi antennas, Cellular Insights created a setup to simulate LTE performance at different distances from a cellular tower using two iPhone 7 Plus devices, one with an Intel modem and one with a...

Higher-End Smartphones Make You Happier, Says JD...

A new J.D. Power study published Thursday found that users who pay more for their smartphones report higher satisfaction than those who pay less for their smartphones. The study also found that among ATT and Sprint customers, Samsung phones ranked highest in overall satisfaction, while T-Mobile and Verizon customers preferred Apple iPhones. Jessica Dolcourt via CNET writes about the other conclusions made by the J.D. Power study: - Customers of ATT, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon (full-service carriers) report more satisfaction than customers on Boost Mobile, Cricket, MetroPCS and Virgin Mobile (co-contract carriers). - Full-service customers pay an average of $361 for their phones compared with prepaid customers' $137 average. -Customers who pay more for their phones report higher satisfaction. - This is likely because high-cost phones perform better. (Editor's note: no duh)

Target Passes Walmart As Top US Corporate Installer...

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Electrek: Target is the top corporate installer of solar power in the USA with 147MW installed on 300 stores. Walmart is close behind with 140MW, while Ikea has installed solar on 90% of its retail locations. The Solar Energy Institute of America (SEIA) report shows over 1,000MW of solar installed in almost 2,000 unique installations by the largest corporate entities in the country. Additionally these groups have more than doubled their installation volume year on year, with 2015 seeing a total of 130MW, while 2016 is projected to be closer to 280MW. Big box retail locations offer some of the best potential spaces for solar power to be installed -- on top of square, flat structures and in previously built parking lots. The average size of an installation by a company in this group is about 500kW -- 75X the size of an average residential solar installation. The RE100 organization has signed up 81 global corporations (many on the SEIA list)...

Don’t Hold Your Breath for an iPhone Edition

After my link today to Greg Koenig’s excellent explanation for why the new ceramic Apple Watch Edition does not presage the use of a similar material in next year’s iPhone (in short: Apple needs to produce up to one million iPhones per day, and the ceramic process Apple is using for the watch takes way too long to meet that demand), several readers asked if Apple might go the Apple Watch Edition route: make a special ceramic iPhone Edition that sells at a much higher price.

Apple certainly could do this. But I don’t think they would. I’ve often said that the iPhone reminds me of Andy Warhol’s great quote about Coca-Cola and America:

Nintendo Switches It Up

After months of speculation and buildup, Nintendo on Thursday officially unveiled its new gaming system, the Nintendo Switch. Previously known only by the codename "NX," rumors about this latest video game console began last year with a hint from Satoru Iwata, the company's late president.
At the time Iwata suggested only that Nintendo was working on a new video game system, and few details have leaked since then. The Switch is Nintendo's first home gaming system since it launched the Wii U in 2012.

Television Needs To Be Reinvented, Says Apple SVP

Eddy Cue, Senior Vice President of Internet Software and Service at Apple, isn't happy with the current state of how people watch TV. He said we currently live with a "glorified VCR," the interface of our current TV is the problem and we need to reinvent it. Cue pointed out a number of other issues he has with today's TV:"It's really hard to use [a cable box or satellite TV]. Setting something to record, if you didn't watch something last night, if you didn't set it to record, it's hard to find, it may not be available. There may be some rights issues," Cue said. "It's great to be able to tell your device, 'I wanna watch the Duke basketball game, I don't care what channel it's on.' I just want to watch the Duke basketball game. Today you got to bring in the TV, go through the guide, find which sports programs or whatever -- it's just hard to do."
