Warren Buffett Buys $1 Billion Stake In Apple

An anonymous reader quotes a report from CNN: Berkshire Hathaway, the conglomerate run by Buffett, disclosed in a regulatory filing Monday that it purchased more than 9.8 million shares in Apple during the first quarter. It marks Berkshire's first investment in Apple. Berkshire acquired its position at an average price of about $109 a share. Apple's stock price has since fallen to just above $90, meaning that Berkshire's stake in Apple is now worth about $888 million. The Apple purchase is the second big tech investment by Berkshire, which has been steadily adding to its stake in IBM during the past few years. Until recently, Buffett had been famous for his lack of investments in the tech sector. But Apple fits perfectly in Buffett's wheelhouse. The company is a leader in its market and the stock is extremely cheap, trading for just 11 times this year's earnings estimates. Apple also has a pristine balance sheet, with $232.9 billion in cash. At the end of April, billionaire...

3D printing market to be worth $22.4 billion in 2020...

Canalys predicts that the worldwide market for 3D printers, and associated materials and services will reach a value of $4.9 billion by the end of 2016, so you have to wonder if Apple has any interest in the technology.

The total market is expected to grow by a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 43.5% from 2015 to 2020, reaching a value of $22.4 billion, according to the research group. Shipments of 3D printers are forecast to grow at a CAGR of 67.2%, to reach 2.4 million units by 2020.

Worldwide, vendors shipped 182,000 3D printers in 2015, a 37% year-on-year increase, with strong performances in both the enterprise and consumer sectors. While industrial expenditure on 3D printers fell, educational establishments ordered thousands of systems for their students, according to Canalys.

Instead of making its own printers, I think Apple will work with 3D printer manufacturers to make sure that their products...

Patent report: authorizing use of a Mac with an iOS...

Apple files for — and is granted — lots of patents by the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office. Many are for inventions that never see the light of day. However, you never can tell which ones will materialize in a real product, so here are today’s patent highlights: 

At some point you may be able to authorize use of a Mac by holding your iPhone or iPad close to it. Apple has been granted a patent (number 9,342,674) for a “man-machine interface for controlling access to electronic devices.”

The invention relates to devices, methods and computer readable media that allow users using a first device to be easily authenticated. For example, while the first device (say, an iPhone) is close to a second device (a Mac), the first device requests user authentication using the one or more biometric sensors. After requesting the user authentication, the first device detects biometric information associated with the user with the one or more...

Rumor: iPhone 7 to ship by the end of September

According to Digitimes, the next generation of iPhones — probably to be dubbed the iPhone 7 — will ship at the end of September. (The fanciful iPhone mock-up in this article are courtesy of Web Design Co.)

The article says the new 4.7-inch iPhone will be handled by Pegatron Technology and Foxconn Electronics (Hon Hai Precision Industry), while the new 5.5-inch model will be made by Wistron and Foxconn.

Chances that the rumor is true (IMHO) opinion: 100%. After all, to date that’s been the time frame when Apple always releases new smartphone.

Would you like a Mac that could change colors?

Would you like a Mac that could change color? Probably won't happen, but Apple has considered the idea. In 2003, Apple filed a patent (number 20020190975) for just such technology.

It involves "electronic devices that are capable of dynamically changing their ornamental or decorative housing." Besides looking cool, imagine a Mac that would change colors to alert to specific things. Say, it turns red when you have new email, blue when the latest system updates are installed, etc.

Here's Apple's summary of the patent (invented by Duncan Kerr): "The electronic devices generally include an illuminable housing. The illuminable housing, which includes at least one wall configured for the passage of light, is configured to enclose, cover and protect a light arrangement as well as functional components of the electronic device."

Apple says the advantage of a color-changing Mac would be that it could provide additional feedback. How so? Here's one example that Apple...

Why the iPhone needs a 'panic button' now...

Should you be able to plead the Fifth if authorities order you to unlock your iPhone using Touch ID?

A judge in California has recently ruled that your fingerprint does not have the same Constitutional protections as your numeric passcode, so Touch ID-enabled iPhones are susceptible to search warrants. Thankfully, Apple is considering developing a new way to protect our iPhones using Touch ID.

In this week’s iPhone Show, we look into an Apple patent that would give iPhones a new “panic mode” to lock out personal information or reset the device entirely. You’d be able to designate a certain finger for Touch ID to secretly...

A new report from CBC News details the progress being made to unlock the FM radio chip that many smartphones feature. Many smartphones have an untapped FM chip inside them that users are unable to take advantage of and while many Android devices are confirmed to have the chip, the iPhone also has despite Apple not officially recognizing it.

A petition has been running in the United States to urge carriers and manufacturers to unlock the hidden FM chip in smartphones. The campaign has gained significant steam since its inception, so much so that carriers are starting to agree to unlock the chip…but Apple has yet to comment.

Translation From Corporate Jargon Doublespeak to...

From a statement released by Brian Mooney, CEO of MCX, the consortium behind the long-overdue mobile payments app CurrentC:

Utilizing unique feedback from the marketplace and our Columbus

immediate term on other aspects of our business including working
with financial institutions, like our partnership with Chase, to
enable and scale mobile payment solutions.

CurrentC is a complete and utter failure.

As part of this transition, MCX will postpone a nationwide rollout
of its CurrentC application.

China targets Apple, U.S. tech companies in security...

Apple and other companies in recent months have been subjected to reviews that target encryption and the data storage of tech products, said people briefed on the reviews who spoke on the condition of anonymity. In the reviews, Chinese officials require executives or employees of the foreign tech companies to answer questions about the products in person, according to these people.

This must be worrisome for foreign companies. This isn’t an Apple specific issue, so I hope people don’t overreact to this news.

Apple Pay rival CurrentC postpones rollout

As merchants like Walmart move ahead on their own mobile payment strategies, a consortium that once counted Walmart — along with a number of other big retailers and brands — behind it, has taken a step back. Merchant Customer Exchange (MCX) today announced it would postpone a nationwide rollout of CurrentC, a smartphone payment initiative originally conceived as a mobile wallet rival to smartphone-led services like Apple Pay and Android Pay. As a result, MCX said it would lay off 30 people as it shifted its focus to working with financial institutions.

It was announced earlier that Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway took a new $1 billion position in Apple in the first quarter. Now Fortune reports that hedge funder Leon Cooperman, CEO of Omega Advisors is buying in as well.

Omega Advisors purchased a 227,000 share stake in the tech giant worth $24.7 million as of the end of the first quarter, according to regulatory filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Monday. The group previously dropped a stake in Apple early last year, selling roughly 384,000 shares of the company. 

It’s not the first time Omega, with $5.1 billion under management, has flip-flopped on Apple. In 2013, Cooperman sold off his stake in Apple amid fears that the company’s growth may be slowing — though the iPhone continued...

According to a new report in FactorDaily, Apple is opening its first three Apple Stores in India in Delhi, Bangalore, and Mumbai. They should be up and running by the end of 2017.

FactorDaily’s report mentions that Apple is currently looking for commercial real estate for India’s first batch of Apple Stores, and the company is reportedly investing about $3 million to $5 million in each store. Apple first applied to open up Apple Stores in India earlier this year, after the country relaxed the rules around foreign-owned retail stores.

I like the looks of the QardioBase. Instead of the square shape of the Withings Smart Body Analyzer, QardioBase is round and thin. The top of the scale is actually the widest part, with the body tapering down in size to the base. 

The base comes with four rubber feet, which I immediately had a bit of a concern about. Sure enough, Qardio had included four more feet...

Apple will open three retail stores in India before the end of 2027, reports FactorDaily, quoting an unnamed “source familiar with the decision.” The retail stores will reportedly open in Delhi, Bangalore and Mumbai within the the next 18 months.

According to the report, each Apple Store will be spread across 10,000 square feet and will be located at high street locations of the three cities. The stores, for which Apple executives are searching for real estate, will need an investment of $3 million to $5 million (Rs20 crore to Rs33 crore) each. 

FactorDaily — an India-based tech news site — also claims that Apple will also unveil a start-up accelerator in India, the first such initiative by the company, to incubate ideas mostly around applications built for iOS.

Apple releases iTunes 12.4 update

Apple on Monday released iTunes 12.4, adding a new, simpler design element to its user interface along with standard bug fixes.

The new version also introduces a sidebar for easier navigation as well as a revamped media picker and may also include safeguards to protect users from an issue that could cause music stored in iTunes to be deleted. The deletion problem affected a small number of users and while Apple was not able to recreate the bug, the company promised “additional safeguards.”

This fix has yet to be officially confirmed by Apple and was not specifically mentioned in the release notes.

iTunes 12.4 can be downloaded through the App Store and its “Updates” tab. The program requires Mac OS X 10.8.5 or later to install and run.

How I got those iTunes deletion bug blues...

I have to admit that I don't listen to a lot of music anymore. I prefer to write in silence most of the time, accompanied by the purring of a cat in my lap. When the recent reports of entire music libraries being deleted from Macs were first making the rounds, I really didn't think too much about it... until I wrote a post for another website and found out while doing research that most of my iTunes library was gone.

Now a bit of explanation. I do not use Apple Music and most recent articles have pointed out that Apple Music isn't the culprit -- it appears to be iTunes 12.3.3. My iTunes library was built up over a few years in the early to mid 2000s by ripping a large collection of CDs, all of which I still have. When iTunes Match became available in November of 2011, it seemed like a good idea -- I'd have the best possible recordings of those tunes that I already "owned" on my own Mac, for a relatively modest annual fee. 

For the past few years, whenever I'd pop out...

Apple releases OS X 10.11.5 El Capitan update

If you were hankering for the release of OS X 10.11.5 El Capitan, it’s here.

On Monday, Apple released OS X 10.11.5, along with updates for its iOS, watchOS, tvOS and iTunes operating systems.

Apple To Launch Startup Accelerator, Three Apple...

Apple plans to set up three of its own retail stores -- the iconic Apple Store -- in India, reports FactorDaily. The stores will be setup in Delhi, Bangalore, and Mumbai in the next 18 months. The report adds that Apple also plans to unveil a startup accelerator in the country which would incubate ideas largely around apps built for iOS. The publication claims that these announcements will be made public later this week when Apple CEO Tim Cook visits India. With the growth of iPhone sales starting to decline, and India being one of the handful places to show an increasingly growing interest in its phone, Apple has shifted its focus in the recent months to actively target Indian market.

The iPhone SE: A Modern iPhone in a Classic Case

Long after adapting to phablet-sized iPhones, Julio Ojeda-Zapata revisits a classic design in the form of the iPhone SE, which looks like the iPhone 5s but has up-to-date internals. He found much to like (and a bit to dislike) about Apple’s new handset.

Tim Cook visiting India this week

Cook’s visit, following a trip to China, comes at a crucial time as Apple looks for new growth markets after posting its first ever decline in iPhone sales, and as India has denied it permission to sell refurbished phones – a move seen as key to appealing to price-sensitive local consumers.

This makes perfect sense considering how much Tim has talked about India lately.

The company offered the following comment on the issue:

“In an extremely small number of cases users have reported that music files saved on their computer were removed without their permission,” Apple said. “We’re taking these reports seriously as we know how important music is to our customers and our teams are focused on identifying the cause. We have not been able to reproduce this issue, however, we’re releasing an update to iTunes early next week which includes additional safeguards. If a user experiences this issue...

Icahn said he still views Apple as a "great company," but concerns over the Chinese economy and government led him to sell off his shares. Last week David Tepper's Appaloosa Management also sold its stake in Apple, shedding more than 1.26 million shares.

Siri, Apple’s “personal digital assistant,” is pretty cool, but it does look a little … dated after the preview of Viv this week. Since the team behind Viv is the same team who originated Siri, perhaps history could repeat itself, and Apple could scoop up Viv.

Apple acquired Siri Inc., the company behind the Speech Interpretation and Recognition Interface (yep, Siri) on April 28, 2010, for more than $200 million. Siri, Inc. had announced that their software would be available for BlackBerry and for phones running Android, but all development efforts for non-Apple platforms were cancelled after the acquisition by Apple. All these years later, the digital assistant is still only available on iOS devices, though a Mac version is rumored to be announced at next month’s Apple Worldwide Developer...

Lee Choong-hoon predicted an OLED iPhone with a curved screen would debut in 2018, saying OLED models would make up 30 percent or 100 million units of total iPhone shipments in the year and the figure could surge to 80 percent by 2020.
