Analysts: Low iPhone growth now, but good times...

Historically, investment and Wall Street analysts have had a poor track record predicting Apple's fortunes ahead of time. However, as Apple's guidance has gotten more accurate, and as supplier leaks and blatant manipulation of the market grow, predictions are getting more accurate. As it traditionally does, Fortune magazine has rounded up the predictions of various investment houses and independent analysts, which show slow growth in iPhones this quarter, but expectations of boosts ahead....

Google wins a game of “Escape from East Texas,”...

Ken Lund / flickr

A federal judge issued an order today decreeing that Google's court battle against a "patent troll" owned by its competitors must be fought out in California, not in Texas.

The ruling is a substantial victory for Google because venue matters a great deal in patent litigation. The search giant was facing the possibility of fighting a powerful trolling entity in the Eastern District of Texas, considered a district friendly to patent holders. The patent-holding company in this case is the Rockstar Consortium, which was formed when Apple, Microsoft, Sony, Ericsson, and Blackberry teamed up to spend $4.5 billion to buy the patents belonging to Nortel, a bankrupt Canadian telecom company.

uGet Gives Great Downloads


The latest version of the uGet Download Manager rekindled my interest in grabbing files without relying on a Web browser. uGet version 1.10.4. was released last month. Written in C, it uses GTK+3 for its user interface, and it is packed full with improvements. It is very reliable and stable, with 11 years of growth behind it. The uGet website has received a makeover to better support users, according to Michael Tunnell of the uGet Project.

Apple’s First WSJ Mention: Just Three Words in 1978

Three words in 1978: "Apple Computer, Inc." Those words are thought to be the first mention of the today's most valuable company in The Wall Street Journal. In an article about using "so called personal computers" in investing published 36 years ago today, Apple warranted a mention merely as one of the more popular brands. That's interesting in and of itself, but what's fascinating is that none of the other companies-Imsai Manufacturing Corp, the MITS division of Pertec Computing Corp., and Processor Technology Corp.-are left. The article also mentions Commodore, Western Digital Corp., IBM, Altair, Radio Shack (the TRS-80), Floppy Disks ("which look like very thin 45-rpm records"), and a few other relics from that era. (There's a PDF version of the article if you want to read the original.)

Honda’s ASIMO Personal Robot is Scary Good in its...

On April 16, Honda unveiled an updated version of ASIMO, its personal robot project. What's cool is how well Honda engineers have engineered the movement of the robot - demonstrated by walking, dancing, kicking a soccer ball, and going up and down stairs. These days, with all the fuss about Google Glass, the iWatch, Apple's TV initiatives and demands for even more innovation, it's easy to overlook this quiet, ongoing work by Honda to build a personal robot.

What's interesting about ASIMO, standing 1.2 meters tall and weighing just over 50 kilos is how it's been made to appear non-threatening with its astronaut-like look and diminutive stature. Reality and Sci Fi aren't too far apart now, and it could be that the vision in the charming movie "Robot and Frank" could be upon us sooner than expected. And notably not from any U.S. tech giant.

We could not be more excited to continue shaping digital photography with new Flickr app for iPhone coming today to the App Store and for Android in the Google Play store now.

Itâs less about being That Guyâ and taking photos with your iPad and more about how itâs a really great tool to put in your camera bag. I came away from Jeffâs article with a few tips and recommendations I can apply to my own photos, and since itâs more of an overview style piece, thereâs not a bunch of technical details thrown in that I didnât understand. Itâs a good read by itself, but if you want to dig deeper you can always pick up his book on the subject.

Shanghai WinSun Decoration Design Engineering, a Shanghai-based company, has created 10 3D-printed houses. Each house reportedly cost less than $5,000 and took less than 24 hours to construct. The printer used to create the homes was about 100 feet long, 33 feet wide and more than 20 feet tall. The "ink" was made from high-grade cement and glass fiber. The houses may not be up to snuff for 3D printing purists: They were not printed as a single item, but rather in parts that were later pieced together.

I’m not sure that Apple will go for this, yet. Apple will strive to give its customers the best products possible and when it comes to search Google is perceived as being the best. I don’t think Apple will let its lawsuits interfere with doing what’s best for its customers.

In a press release, Samuel Chang, LG Electronics USA vice president and head of the LG Silicon Valley Lab said:

Connect SDK is breaking down barriers to enable apps and devices to work together harmoniously. The screen size, capabilities and social nature of Smart TVs enable experiences that consumers will absolutely love.

Connect SDK is designed to address the problem of connecting apps with a second screen, the TV, which still serves as a main point of content consumption for many households. The company has released versions of the SDK compatible with devices on both iOS and Android.

You may even be able to ask Siri “What song is playing?” and have it tell you—and perhaps even have the virtual assistant sing a few bars? For Apple’s part, this could help drive sales to the iTunes Store by capitalizing on impulse purchases; plus, Shazam’s been building out its technology to allow it to recognize TV shows and movies as well.

The anti-Apple tax people

I agree with what Rob says, until he gets to this part:

Yes, Apple shelters taxes. Yes, it’s very good at it. Yes, it sucks that they aren’t paying their fair share.

The fact is, Apple does pay its fair share. In fact, they paid billions of dollars in taxes in the US last year, more than anyone else. The fact that governments offer companies a tax break to have factories or offices in their jurisdiction is not the companies fault—they create jobs, which has great economic benefits for those regions. If you then tell a company that those tax breaks are gone, they will pick up and move somewhere else—it’s business.

This isn’t about Apple, every company works exactly the same way. This is about the way the world works.

You’ll also be able to use the phone or tablet you’re streaming from as a second-screen experience to “check scores, stats and news” while watching the game on the bigger screen:

MLB.TV is the latest live streaming service to come to Chromecast, so now MLB....

Flickr 3.0 redesigned for iOS, sets its sights on...

Flickr – Yahoo’s photo-sharing service — has been completely redesigned for iOS to focus on the social aspect of the service, making for a direct competitor to Instagram. The new design is similar on both iOS and Android, though the specific look and feel has been tailored to each platform. The iOS update makes use of blurs and other iOS 7-motifs, while the Android app keeps a darker feel. Both apps are fast to load photos and browse the feed.

The update is expected to debut on the App Store sometime today. Flickr isn’t the most popular photo-sharing service around on mobile, but version 3.0 makes it one of the nicest for iOS — plus that free terabyte of storage helps sweeten the deal.

RunKeeper launches friendly fitness app “Breeze” for...


FitnessKeeper, the makers of the GPS tracking and fitness monitoring app RunKeeper, is out with a new activity monitoring app called Breeze. Breeze is simple: it takes advantage of the M7 co-processor on the iPhone 5s that measures steps taken and presents the data in a clean, approachable user interface. Using that data, Breeze reminds you each morning how many steps you took the previous day so you start out motivated. Its activity monitor presents total steps taken each day and summarizes the number of steps and hours spent moving in total.

Apple is preparing an immediate follow-up to iOS 7.1 in the form of v7.1.1, according to web traffic data from 9to5Mac. The site says that it has received "numerous" hits from v7.1.1 devices operating in areas around Apple's Cupertino campus. It's not clear when the update will go live, or what it will contain, but the version number suggests that it should arrive relatively soon and mostly contain bugfixes....

BBC iPlayer, Sky Go, Now TV iOS apps suddenly...

Several UK-based iOS apps -- including BBC iPlayer, Sky Go, and Now TV -- have suddenly stopped streaming video, the BBC reports. The issue began last night, and is still ongoing; the source of the problem is so far unknown, as is whether other apps are also being affected. The director of Now TV, Gidon Katz, indicates that the issue can be temporarily fixed in Sky and Now by rewinding iOS' clock by a day, but that triggers other problems -- including preventing access to the App Store -- and doesn't solve the flaw in iPlayer....

Yahoo’s strategy: Rebuild search, take share, win...

Re/code's Kara Swisher has an in-depth scoop describing what is likely Yahoo's overarching goal for the near-to-mid term: displacing Google as Apple's default Safari search engine on iOS devices. There's a lot of money and mindshare to be had by taking the default search position on mobile devices, especially Apple's. Swisher reports that Google allegedly pulls in much more revenue from search on iOS than it does on Android, and Mayer's Yahoo appears to regard a return to prominence in search as a key to the company's long-term success.

There's a lot more going on behind the scenes, though. Yahoo currently relies on Microsoft's Bing for search results as part of a long-term partnership deal with Microsoft; the company has no actual search product of its own. Danny Sullivan of Search Engine Land correctly points out that it's been a long time...

After becoming a Dame of the British Empire in a ‘low key’ ceremony earlier this month, rumor had it that Apple’s new retail chief Angela Ahrendts would be leaving her CEO position at Burberry this month. Apple has never confirmed as much apart from saying Ahrendts would start in the spring back in its original announcement, but today reports claim Ahrendts might stick around at Burberry a little longer. The Guardian reports that while Ahrendts is free to leave after serving her 6 months notice and helping transition in a new CEO, she could earn as much as an £8m or $13.5m...

Apple’s iOS 8 to Reportedly Include Shazam Music...

Apple apparently wants to make it easier for iPhone and iPad users to identify the songs they hear, so the company is reportedly planning on including Shazam's song identification technology in iOS 8. Including Shazam as a system-level feature would make it easier to answer those "what song is playing" questions, but could put a crimp in sales of competing apps.

The Mac Observer Spin: Including song identification in iOS 8 would give Apple yet another way to drive customers to the iTunes Store, and if that technology comes from Shazam, it'll be a hard blow for SoundHound.

Twitterrific for iOS gets a welcomed update today that notably brings the ability to edit tweets with a simple tap of the “more actions” icon. Of course, in order to get around the fact that Twitter doesn’t actually allow editing of tweets, what the function is really doing is quickly deleting the tweet and opening the compose window with original tweet’s text. From there you can quickly edit and share it as fast as possible.  

The app also gets a number of other bug fixes and improvements in the version 5.7.2 update available on the App Store now.

Apple preparing iOS 7.1.1 bug fix update as iOS 8,...

Unsurprisingly, Apple appears to be readying a bug fix update to iOS 7.1 called iOS 7.1.1. Numerous visits to 9to5Mac from areas surrounding Apple’s campus on devices running iOS 7.1.1 have appeared in our analytics. The increase in views likely indicates that the bug fix update will come over-the-air to iPhones, iPads, and iPod touches in the near future. iOS 7.1 was released in March with user-interface tweaks, a new calendar view, and CarPlay support.

In similar news, it appears, based on our analytics, that iOS 8 testing inside Apple has increased:

E-Book Self-Publishing: Brave New Words

Rather than give up, however, they decided to start their own e-book publishing company, Smashwords, to give their book -- and others -- a chance. "The entire traditional publishing industry is built around the notion that a book's merit is built on its commercial potential," said Mark Coker. "I thought that's the wrong way to value books."

On Tuesday, the Japanese web site Mac Otakara released a video and photos taken at the fair that shows tooled metal mock-ups which the vendor claims are of the iPhone 6 and are presumably what the exhibitor used to create their iPhone 6 cases.

10-second setup lets Siri control Nest, lighting and...

It’s not quite as clever as it looks, but an app created during a hackathon and spotted by Engadget allows Siri to control web-enabled devices like Nest, services like Spotify and even a Tesla car.

It’s not coincidence that the app is named GoogolPlex, as what it actually does is intercept Google searches for Plex and redirect them to a webserver that actually does the work. So when you give the command “GoogolPlex Turn on the lights,” Siri interprets that as an instruction to Google “Plex turn on the lights.”

By changing your wifi connection’s proxy settings, these ‘searches’ are redirected to the web app, which then interact with the relevant API to do what you’ve asked of it.

With the approach dependent on the app name sounding like Google, don’t expect it to last long, however...

Samsung’s fingerprint scanner not immune to hackers

 

It was only a matter of time before someone found a weakness in the fingerprint scanner found on the new Samsung Galaxy S5. Too bad Samsung didn’t learn anything from Apple’s experiences with fingerprint hacking. The very same hack that was used to bypass the iPhone 5S’s scanner, that we reported on last September, has now been used to get past the one on the Galaxy S5. The security blog SRlabs has posted a video of a fake fingerprint, which was copied from a photo image and reproduced, being used to unlock a Galaxy S5.
