Why Apple Pay could be the mobile-payment system you...

Macworld:

Near Field Communications (NFC)—the technology behind those swipe-free terminals and now Apple Pay—is nothing new. The technology has existed since the late 1990s and appears in many forms, including key fobs, payment cards, and even (on certain phones) Google Wallet. It isn’t necessarily the most widely deployed payment technology, but it certainly isn’t new.

Which begs the question: Why all the hype about Apple Pay? Is it merely the Reality Distortion Field hyping something that’s actually ho-hum? Or is there something deeper here?

Rich Mogull is my go to guy when it comes to Apple security and issues surrounding it. As usual, he writes well and simply about a complicated topic.

New iPhone 6 preorders affected by infrastructure...

A number of people trying to place early preorders for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus have been met with technical issues. Shoppers are complaining, for instance that they were initially unable to buy unlocked T-Mobile or AT&T models. Apple servers in fact appear to have had problems connecting to carrier servers, forcing the company to issue reservation numbers via email that people could use to complete an order within the next 24 hours....

Forum Roundup: Apple watch…why bother?

As everyone knows by now, this week Apple took the wraps off their latest fabrication - the Apple Watch - and while there was much hype about this device leading up to its release, some MacNN forum goers don't seem to think there is much reason to get this particular device over the competition as is discussed in the thread titled "Apple watch…why bother". One Mac Elite wonders if the Apple Watch will be on display in stores before they are available for sale....

Letter of recommendation

Chris Breen:

I admit that seeing my colleagues leave has been a bit like having everyone around you suddenly raptured while you stand gawking with a ham sandwich shoved halfway in your mouth.

But I’m not here to feed Internet tittle-tattle. Rather, as someone who’s been with Macworld (and MacUser before it) for a very long time, I’d like to provide potential employers (and those who are simply interested in their favorite writers) some details about my departed colleagues.

Chris Breen is the only “big name” left at Macworld and his tribute to his former fellow employees is touching. And, having known personally many of the people he writes about, I’d say his assessments are 100% correct.

Walmart to Apple: No Mobile Payments for You

Apple says its new mobile payment system for the iPhone 6 and Apple Watch has 220,000 merchants ready to go when it launches in October, but that list doesn't include Walmart or Best Buy -- and it won't, because neither company has any interest in supporting Apple Pay. Without either on board, Apple Pay may have a more difficult time gaining traction and could find itself in the same place as Google with a mobile payment platform that few people use and many retailers resist.

Google has purchased Lift Labs, which produces battery-operated utensils that make it easier for people with essential tremor or Parkinson's disease to eat their meals.
Parkinson's patients' hands shake, making it difficult for them to eat or drink. Lift Labs' products, offered under the "Liftware" name, cancel more than 70 percent of tremors. "There's a lot going on right now in technology-centric innovation in Parkinson's," said analyst Daniel Ruppar.

Customers complain of difficulties pre-ordering...

The pre-orders for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are coming in.

And they’re overwhelming Apple.

Per AppleInsider, Friday’s kickoff for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus preorders was marred by a series of glitches, issues and errors that left a number of customers frustrated with Apple and its carrier partners’ inability to keep up with overwhelming demand.

Readers reported that they’d experienced a number of problems attempting to place their order for Apple’s next-generation handsets on Friday. Things kicked off just after midnight Pacific, 3 a.m. Eastern, but initial customers were only able to access preorders via the iOS Apple Store app, and not through...

Apple Pay nets a discount from banks, Walmart says ‘...

If phones are going to replace wallets, everyone has to get on board. Banks, stores, phone manufacturers, and you, the customer, are all needed to take mobile payments mainstream. That’s why Apple Pay has a shot at succeeding where Google Wallet failed: Apple created an NFC-equipped phone and made your wallet seem like a horrific albatross that is literally ruining your life. But before all that, the company nailed down banks and retailers. Well, not all retailers.

Apple has been working on partnerships to build out Apple Pay—and make sure people use it—since January 2013, according to the New York Times. Visa, MasterCard, and American Express are on board. Five of the largest banks are in. Five more are coming soon. But to be part of Apple Pay, the...

After high demand, iPhone 6 Plus ship times slip to...

The iPhone 6 Plus has already become scarce.

Megan Geuss

Less than 12 hours after Apple opened the floodgates to pre-orders, certain iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus models have already become impossible to order for a September 19 delivery. The larger iPhone 6 Plus is in particularly short supply—all models in the Apple online store now show estimated shipping times of three to four weeks, and the story is the same on the various US carrier sites.

This might suggest that the larger model is more popular among pre-orderers, but that's not necessarily the case. Leading up to Apple's announcement, the rumor mill consistently agreed that the 5.5-inch version of the phone would be in shorter supply, and some rumors even suggested that the phone would launch after the smaller 4.7-inch version. That was basically how things played out the last time Apple...

iPhone 6 Sales Crush Means Late-Night Waits For Some...

Even after the months of hype and speculation, the behind-the-scenes development and manufacture, and then the announcement Tuesday, it seems Apple's servers weren't quite ready for the workout they got from would-be early adopters of its newest iPhone. Preorders through Verizon Wireless and AT&T largely started without a hitch at midnight, though some customers on Twitter have since complained about issues. Those problems were nothing compared to the issues experienced by Sprint and T-Mobile customers. The Sprint and T-Mobile sites were still down for many users nearly two hours after presales were slated to start. Access to Sprint's site faded in and out, while the T-Mobile site continued to display a form to register for a reminder for when the preorders began. Some people joked on Twitter that they "might as well wait for the iPhone 6S now." Apple's store itself was down for a few hours, too.

iPhone 6 Plus Pre-orders Sell Out, iPhone 6 Still...

If you're hoping to have an iPhone 6 Plus on September 19, your best option now is to wait in line at your local Apple Store or cell service provider store because Apple has sold out of its pre-order inventory only hours after starting orders. The smaller screen iPhone 6 is still available for next Friday delivery instead of the week or longer wait iPhone 6 Plus buyers are now facing.

The Mac Observer Spin: If you didn't want to get up far too early and fight with Apple's fumbled pre-order system, and you want to have a new iPhone delivered on September 19, it looks like you're buying the 4.7-inch iPhone 6. If you really want the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus, you'll be waiting in line next Friday.

A more likely resolution would therefore be 4096x2160, DisplayPort's current maximum. At the same time, Dell has announced a 5K display, and whatever technology that uses could presumably be adopted by Apple....

iPhone 6 preorders plagued with problems

If you preordered an iPhone 6 or 6 Plus without any trouble last night, congratulations: You were one of the lucky few.

Apple, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon began taking orders for the new phones, which hit store shelves Sept. 19, at 12:01 a.m. Pacific/3:01 a.m. Eastern. The process is the same as it always was: Stay awake (or wake up insanely early) and spend an hour trying to get through the ordering process without punching your computer in frustration. But this year, preordering the iPhone was especially infuriating.

The Apple Store was reportedly down for up to two hours in some parts of the country—same for Sprint and T-Mobile. Verizon and AT&T’s sites were spotty. Some customers preordered without a problem, while others couldn’t add the phone to their carts. Verizon and Sprint were battling each other for your...

Following our report in July detailing Apple’s work on a new 4K display, today a report from Taiwan-based display researchers WitsView claims Apple will release a new 5K iMac by the end of this year.

Adding a little bit more weight to today’s report is the fact that Dell just announced a 27-inch 5120×2880 5K display that would be a likely candidate for a future Retina iMac panel if today’s rumors are true.

There have been several hints that Apple...

Wondering what it cost Apple to give away that U2...

If you were wondering how much it cost Apple to give away a copy of U2’s Songs of Innocence album to every customer, the answer, according the the New York Times, is more than $100M.

To release U2’s album free, Apple paid the band and Universal an unspecified fee as a blanket royalty and committed to a marketing campaign for the band worth up to $100 million, according to several people briefed on the deal. That marketing will include a global television campaign, the first piece of which was a commercial that was shown during the event.

Yep, that album that ended up on many people’s iPhones...

The company will be working in conjunction with China’s UnionPay to bring the service to the country. UnionPay, a state-backed bank card association, has agreed to let Apple use its cards in Apple Pay, the report claims. Apple Pay will be available this October in the U.S., but it’s unknown when the service will launch in China....

The Apple Watch was not designed specifically for me...

A whimsical post with a valid message at its core. One value of the Apple Watch becomes evident when you receive a call or text and your hands/arms are busy/full:

To check that message or call all I have to do is lift my wrist and the gyro kicks in, turning the display on. Then I can simply glance at my wrist, rather than stopping the dogs to fish out the phone, to see if the message is important enough to drop what I’m doing. And I can then respond through the Watch rather than having to dig for the phone.

Exactly.

T-Mobile Joins iPhone 6 Pre-order Lineup

When Apple's just introduced iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus pre-orders started -- or at least tried to start -- just after midnight Pacific time, AT&T, Verizon and Sprint were option, but T-Mobile wasn't. That finally changed several hours later, which means not only can hopeful iPhone buyers pre-order the new model, but they can get an unlocked version that works with multiple carriers, too.

The Mac Observer Spin: Apple's iPhone 6 pre-order process was a pain, and T-Mobile's absence when it launched just after midnight was frustrating for many potential customers. Considering how many people seem to want the new models, however, the T-Mobile delay probably won't have a negative impact on sales.

Why Apple timed things perfectly with the launch of...

After years of annual rumors that each successive iPhone would feature NFC, there was understandable skepticism when the rumor rolled around again this year for the iPhone 6. It was looking like Apple might have put all its short-range communication eggs in one basket with Bluetooth LE.

Instead, of course, the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus got NFC as the mechanism for Apple’s contactless payment service, Apple PayPando suggests that the company’s timing may not be entire coincidental.

While U.S. banks have so far ignored the more secure chip-and-pin cards used in Europe, sticking doggedly to magnetic strips and...

Apple is set to bring Apple Pay, its mobile wallet service, to China using a partnership with China UnionPay. @KhaosT on Twitter found references to the credit card type in iOS 8 code and now MarketWatch is corroborating with sources that a deal is in the works.

Apple announced Apple Pay as a US only service, coming to iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in October with a software update. A deal with UnionPay would obviously mean Apple wants to bring the feature to Chinese iOS customers soon.

A review of 1,211 apps carried out by a coalition of privacy officials across 19 countries found that 60 percent of them failed at least one basic privacy test, reports the WSJ.

The officials found that 60% of apps raised privacy concerns, based on three criteria: They did not disclose how they used personal information; they required that the user give up an excessive amount of personal data as a condition of downloading the app; and their privacy policies were rendered in type too small to be read on a phone’s screen …

By then, many customers had started pre-ordering the new iPhones on the Apple Store app — also a hit-or-miss proposition for some. Inventory seemed to change suddenly,…

You Should Play: Zen Pinball

These days, keeping up with games can be a full-time job. So how do you separate the signal from the noise, the wheat from the chaff, the Temple Runs from the Temple Jumps? Allow us to help by regularly selecting a game You Should Play.

Dedicated arcades are dead, for the most part—save for a few pinball machines and video game cabinets tucked away in corners of movie theaters, bowling alleys, laser tag facilities, or trendy arcade-themed bars. Despite this, video games haven't really suffered at all from the loss of arcade gaming: Arcade games are still on consoles, computers, phones, tablets, and more, and there are more games coming out now than ever before. But the same can't be said for pinball machines. They're expensive to produce and maintain, plus take up a lot of space. In other words, they're not exactly ideal for the average living room or bedroom setting.

Can you hear that? That’s the sound of me typing this article out on my new typewriter. Yes, it is still 2014. I’m just trying out Hanx Writer, a typewriter app for the iPad, brought to you by Tom Hanks. 

Yes, that Tom Hanks. Hanks collects typewriters and built this app as a bit of a passion project—in fact, if you download the app, you can read all about it in an opening letter written by Hanks himself. The fact that it is typed out in an old timey font makes it feel like Hanks wrote that letter just for you.

The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus launch has not been smooth, to say the least. Many people are still unable to access the Apple Online Store to purchase Apple’s newest devices. Despite availability issues, many models are already selling out. Carrier websites are the first to be affected, naturally, as they always get less supply than Apple itself.

Both AT&T and Verizon are quoting three week shipping delays for the Plus, meaning customers buying now won’t get their phones until around the 7th of October. At the time of writing, the iPhone 6 is still available. At Apple’s own store, it seems like the 64 GB iPhone 6 Plus and the 128 GB iPhone 6 Plus is now also...

If you want a new iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus when they go on sale on September 19 and you don't want to stand in line like a chump, Apple will soon begin accepting pre-orders in its online store in the phones' launch territories, and is currently taking pre-orders through the Apple Store iOS app. If you're in the US, UK, Canada, France, Germany, Australia, Japan, Hong Kong, or Singapore, the time to order is now.
