Dwayne Johnson teams up with Apple for Siri...

Actor Dwayne Johnson — who seems to have found a way to work 25/8 — has teamed up with Apple for an ad promoting Siri, the tech giant’s personal digital assistant. The spot is called The Rock X Siri: Dominate the Day and you can watch it on Apple’s YouTube channel. Johnson's Facebook post about the movie says:

“I partnered with #Apple to make the BIGGEST, COOLEST, CRAZIEST, DOPEST, MOST OVER THE TOP, FUNNEST (is that even a word?) movie ever.

And I have the greatest co-star of all time - #SIRI. I make movies for the world to enjoy and we also made this one to motivate you to get out there and get the job done. I want you to watch it, have fun with it and then go LIVE IT.”

∞ The Rock’s crazy, long form Siri commercial

[VIDEO] Not quite sure what to make of this. At almost 4 minutes long, it’s too long for a commercial, though it could easily be cut into reusable snippets. Could this be the beginning of a long-term deal between Apple and Dwayne Johnson (formerly known as The Rock)?

And what about the voice of Siri itself? In the commercial, it’s the voice we all know and love, that of Susan Bennett. But in iOS 11, Apple is shifting to a synthesized voice, a voice that, to me, bears no resemblance to the Siri we’ve all grown to know and love.

Is this new investment in Susan’s Siri voicing a sign that Susan Bennett will have a home in iOS 11?

No matter, take a few minutes, click through to the main Loop post, and watch The Rock, Dwayne Johnson, take Siri through his day. Boring, this is not.

Non-Apple chip suppliers seeing slowdown as Apple...




Although chipmakers in the Apple supply chain saw their orders accelerate in June, suppliers for non-Apple devices have encountered unexpectedly slow orders this year -- possibly because device makers are waiting to see what the "iPhone 8" and/or "iPhone 7s" will bring to the table, according to a report.

The backup speech, in case the moon landing went...

Friday marked the 48th anniversary of humanity’s first step on the moon. Came across this article, where William Safire talks about the speech he was asked to write for then-President Richard Nixon to deliver if things went terribly wrong.

Shortly before the mission, Apollo 8 astronaut and White House liaison Frank Borman called President Nixon’s speechwriter, William Safire.

“You’ll want to consider an alternative posture for the President in the event of mishaps,” Borman told Safire, according to an NBC “Meet The Press” interview with Safire on July 18, 1999.

At first, Safire didn’t understand what Borman meant — he told NBC that it sounded like “gobbledygook” — but Borman quickly clarified.

“I can hear [Borman] now: ‘Like what to do for the widows,'” Safire said. In short, Borman wanted a backup speech ready in case the Apollo 11 crew died.

A morbid scenario, but a fascinating read.

Apple reportedly buys CVD machines from Sunic Systems

Apple is investing in equipment to assist in supplying OLED screens to the "iPhone 8" and beyond according to ET News — as noted by AppleInsider. The tech giant has purchased chemical vapor deposition (CVD) machines from Sunic Systems in Korea, the article adds.  

Chemical vapor deposition (CVD) is a chemical process used to produce high quality, high-performance, solid materials. The process is often used in the semiconductor industry to produce thin films. 

Sunic supplies OLED evaporation production systems for both OLED lighting and OLED display production. The company has supplied over 80 systems globally since 2000.

OLED technology is used in many high-end smartphones.  Supporters of the technology praise its high contrast/deep blacks and potential thickness and power consumption...

Juno Temple is set to co-star with “The Crown’s” Claire Foy in Steven Soderbergh’s next movie, sources tell Variety.

The official title of the pic, which Soderbergh will direct, is currently unknown, but sources says it has a working title of “Unsane.”

Plot details are being kept under wraps, but insiders say Soderbergh shot the entire film on an iPhone, similar to the indie hit “Tangerine.”

Big fan of Soderbergh. His movies include Erin Brockovich, Traffic, and the Oceans 11 series, just to name a few. He does love to experiment.

Ireland seeks custodian for Apple cash as collection...

Peter Flanagan, Bloomberg:

The Irish government is setting up a fund to manage the estimated 13 billion euros ($15.2 billion) it will collect from Apple Inc. in back taxes, nearly a year after the European Commission ruled the country had provided a sweetheart deal on tax to the U.S. firm.

The government and Apple will jointly appoint a custodian to hold the money to be deposited by the iPhone maker, the finance ministry said in an emailed statement. The funds will be held in escrow pending appeals by Apple and Ireland, which could take years. One or more investment managers will also be hired to manage the money.

And from Apple:

“The European Commission’s case against Ireland has never been about how much Apple pays in taxes, it’s about which government gets the money,” said Apple spokesman Josh Rosenstock. “The United States government, the Irish government and Apple all agree we’ve paid our taxes according the law. Since virtually all of our research...

Siri Co-stars in New Ad with Dwayne Johnson

Dwayne Johnson is one of the hardest working actors in Hollywood, but that didn’t stop him from partnering with Apple on an epic commercial featuring the iPhone voice assistant Siri. The nearly four minute spot takes The Rock and Siri on an epic journey he calls the “biggest, coolest, craziest, dopest, most over the top, funnest” movie ever. The spot is called The Rock X Siri: Dominate the Day and you can watch it on Apple’s YouTube channel now. Ironically, asking Siri to show you the movie only brings up a list of Dwayne Johnson flicks.

New Apple Park drone footage emerges, shows...

Drone videographer Duncan Sinfield has completed and posted his mid-month flyover of the Apple Park campus, wherein Apple is apparently applying finishing touches such as landscaping.

Specifically this month, Sinfield highlights the work within the spaceship ring. Apple continues to planet trees and other greenery. When completed, the campus will be surrounded by around 9,000 trees and Apple’s efforts to find only the best tress have been detailed in the past.

Sinfield has also noted that Tantau Avenue, which runs alongside Apple Park, has been closed to public vehicle traffic over the last month as Apple continues to work on the visitor center. Apple is also hiring staff for the visitor center ahead of Apple Park’s grand opening.

Landscaping around the Apple Park site picked up momentum this month, especially in the inner-circle area where Apple has planted a large grove of trees.

Analyst said Apple could be obsolete in 3-10 years (...

This is why I need to become a professional analyst: one analyst told CNBC three years ago that Apple could be "obsolete" in three to 10 years, due to increasing competition and "make-believe" valuations in the technology sector. 

Yes, it "could" be. It also "could" become more powerful than Microsoft and Walmart combined. I "could" become President of the United States. And pigs "could" learn to fly.

More likely, none of this will happen, at last according to my crystal ball. 

In July 2014 Pedro de Noronha, managing partner at hedge fund Noster Capital, said he was unsure about the Silicon Valley-based company's long-term potential.

"I need to know where a company is going to be in 5-to-10 years. I mean look at Apple, a company we all admire… I don't know where they are going to be in three years," Noronha told CNBC in a TV interview at the time. "It's a very competitive landscape. They might...

Apple has filed for a patent (number 20170206055) for “realtime audio effects control.” Most likely involving future versions of GarageBand on macOS and iOS devices, it’s for music authoring software can provide features that allow users to store music tracks, samples, or other prerecorded music segments and combine the music segments to create an original musical product.

Apple says the invention applies to a variety of electronic devices “including but not limited to laptop computers, desktop computers, computer terminals, television systems, tablet computers, e-book readers, smart phones, and/or wearable devices such as a smart watch, smart glasses, smart goggles, etc.” And it may or may not involve touch screens.

In some implementations of the invention, a computing device can be configured to present a graphical user interface that enables the dynamic authoring of music by a user of the computing device. The computing device can present a grid of cells, where...

Apple developing its own OLED technology to reduce...

At this point, it is well known that the iPhone 8 (or iPhone Pro, or whatever it’s called) will feature a new (5.8-inch) OLED screen. Reports indicate that this display will be exclusively manufactured and supplied by Samsung, as Samsung currently dominates global supply of phone-sized OLED panels. Apple is never happy to depend on just one supplier for a critical iPhone component, not least it’s arch-rival in the tech landscape.

According to a new article from ET News (via Digitimes), Apple has bought CVD machines and has setup a research & development line in Taiwan dedicated to OLED screen technology. It aims to ultimately expand the OLED supply chain beyond just Samsung, although it’s unlikely that Apple itself would actually do the raw component manufacturing …

Apple Sued By State Farm Over Alleged iPhone Fire

An anonymous reader quotes CNET:
Insurer State Farm and one of its customers, Wisconsin resident Xai Thao, allege that one of Apple's older iPhones had a defective battery that led to a fire last year. A lawsuit filed on Thursday by both State Farm and Thao claims that her iPhone 4S "failed" and "started a fire at Thao's home." The lawsuit further claims that "preliminary investigations show evidence of a significant and localized heating event in the battery area of the iPhone." It also declares that there were "remnants of internal shorting, indicating that an internal failure of the iPhone's battery caused the fire"... The State Farm lawsuit says that Thao's iPhone was "in a defective and unreasonably dangerous condition" when she bought it in 2014. The suit is claiming in excess of $75,000 in damages.

Steve Jobs' Life Is Now An Opera

An anonymous reader quotes CNN's report on a new project from Pulitzer Prize-winning librettist Mark Campbell:
"The (R)evolution of Steve Jobs" is set to open on Saturday night at the Santa Fe Opera, home to the largest summer-opera festival in U.S. The high-tech production, which runs until August 26, jumps in and out of key moments in the Apple founder's life, from early product-development days alongside Steve Wozniak and the launch of the original iPhone, to his wedding day with Laurene Powell Jobs... The opera features an electronic score, developed by Mason Bates, that incorporates sounds from the products Jobs created, including the audio synonymous with turning on an early Macintosh computer. The libretto, or operatic script, doesn't call out words like Apple or iPhone due to copyright issues; instead, it uses descriptors like "one device" to reference the smartphone. "Only one device, does it all," the libretto reads. "In one hand, all your need. One device....

According to MacRumors Apple is introducing two all-new Apple Store positions dubbed “Lead” and “Schedule Planner.” Applications open Monday, July 24, although select stores started interviewing candidates as early as a few weeks ago, the article says. 

The Lead position will give team members the chance to learn the ins and outs of running an Apple Store firsthand, according to MacRumors. Most of the Lead’s time will be spent as the Support Leader on the Floor, responsible for managing employee breaks and zoning in the store, and addressing customer concerns. 

Support Leader on the Floor also entails communicating daily objectives, reinforcing store policies, and motivating team members by delivering feedback for career development, according to one employee's LinkedIn profile, the article adds.

Apple has 499 retail stores in 23 countries and an online store available in 39 countries.

The rise of mobile technology has transformed the world in many ways, including the way users interact with email. Mobile email opens have nearly doubled over the past five years and more than half of emails are now opened on mobile devices, according to a new research report from email solutions provider Return Path.

The Email Client Experience analyzes the breakdown of platforms and devices that people use to open email. The report also looks at when people are most likely to open email, as well as the length of time they typically spend reading an email. Data from May 2016 to April 2017 is compared with results from a similar study in 2012...

Some tips for spotting a phishing email

Ninety-four precent of NordVPN’s National Privacy Test respondents said they would ignore an email request from a bank asking for personal information. Yet statistics show that up to 45% of Internet users keep clicking on dangerous links or providing personal information where they shouldn’t.

The prevalence of phishing scams signals that more sophisticated baits are still very profitable for cyber criminals, according to the folks at NordVPN, a VPN service provider. In another example, Kaspersky reports that Kaspersky Lab products blocked 51 million attempts to open a phishing page in the first quarter (Q1) 2017. 

According to Verizon’s research conducted in 2016, 30% of phishing emails get opened. This suggests that although users may recognize basic malicious emails...

Pokémon: Magikarp Jump doesn't do enough with...

Free-to-play games often look appealing, but it’s difficult to know at a glance whether the business model is insidious and fun ruining, or reasonable and worth pumping a few bucks into. With Freemium Field Test, we’ll take a recent free-to-play iOS game, put it through its paces, and let you know if it’s really worth your time (and money).

Of all the many hundreds of Pokémon available in the monster-catching franchise today, the lowly Magikarp remains one of the least appreciated. The dopey-looking orange fish have bulging eyes and slacked jaws, and really can’t do a whole lot. But they can jump, apparently, and it’s enough to earn the creatures their very own iOS game.

Update to iOS 10.3.3 now: Apple patches serious Wi-...

iOS users should update immediately to version 10.3.3 to eliminate the risk of a Wi-Fi-based exploit that can be carried out by an attacker in proximity to a device—or potentially through a compromised Wi-Fi router—without any interaction from the user at all.

In the iOS 10.3.3 update, Apple patched a bug that arises from how three models of Broadcom wireless chips, which Apple uses in iOS hardware, processes data. The chips are designed for smartphones and tablets, and aren’t used in Macs or other full-featured PCs. Security researcher Rich Mogull of Securosis said, “As described, the Broadcom vulnerability is extremely serious, but we will need to see the full exploit details to determine the real risk to users on all the various devices out there.”

Apple spends record amount in Washington lobbying...

Apple spent $2.2 million lobbying the Donald Trump administration in Washington D.C. between April 1 and June 30, 2017, according to a disclosure form filed by the Office of the Clerk of the U.S. House of Representatives — as noted by recode. That’s almost double the moolah spent on lobbying from the same three month period in 2016.

In its filing, Apple explicitly called attention to its work around immigration. That’s an issue that mattered so much to Apple CEO Tim Cook that he confronted Trump directly about it during a private reception at the White House in June.

However, Apple isn’t the only tech company spending big money on lobbying.

Google spent about $5.4 million and joined Apple in surveillance concerns but also lobbied...
