According to a report from The Verge, a feature in the updated operating system allows users to easily change settings so your fingers can't unlock your iPhone using Touch ID. Pressing the power button on an iPhone rapidly five times will bring up an emergency screen, allowing you to either call 911 services or enter a passcode to enable Touch ID. Until you...

Lawsuit over Apple store workers’ unpaid time may be...

A class action suit over Apple store workers' unpaid time spent in bag checks may soon be headed to the California Supreme Court, reports AppleInsider. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals the state's Supreme Court to decide whether bag checks are "compensable as 'hours worked' within the meaning of California Industrial Welfare Commission Wage Order No. 7," even when people could technically avoid the checks by leaving purses, backpacks, and other bags at home.

"As a practical matter, many persons routinely carry bags, purses, and satchels to work, for all sorts of reasons," the court noted. "Although not 'required' in a strict, formal sense, many employees may feel that they have little true choice when it comes to the search policy, especially given that the policy applies day in and day out. Because we have little...

Review: Nuvyyo Tablo Dual 64GB Over-the-Air...

We were pretty impressed with Nuvyyo's original Tablo OTA DVR when we looked at it last year — a simple "black box" capable of providing an over-the-air HD television signal wirelessly to an Apple TV, iPhone, or iPad. However, one of the key limitations of the first-generation Tablo was that unless you supplied your own hard drive, you were limited to using the device as a live tuner, without even providing features like the ability to pause live television. Nuvyyo has clearly seen the need to provide a more full-featured solution with this year's release of the Tablo Dual, an improvement on last year's model that reduces the footprint while also adding 64GB of internal storage, which the company promises is sufficient for recording up to 40 hours of live television. {/exp:char_limit}

A total solar eclipse – the entire sun blocked by the passage of the moon – is one of the most awe-inspiring natural events you can experience. I travelled to Germany to view one in 1999, and I remember it vividly today. The light getting gradually dimmer and dimmer, a deep twilight and then the sudden and dramatic transition into total darkness.

Monday will see America’s first coast-to-coast total solar eclipse in almost a century. You need to be in quite a narrow band of the U.S. to experience the totality (see map below), but you can experience a partial eclipse from anywhere in the country …

Helpshift, a customer support industry firm, has announced the results of a survey conducted by Radius Global Market Research June 12-13, among adults ages 18-plus that explored Americans’ feelings about email, messaging and proactive customer support.

More than three-quarters of Americans (81%) use mobile apps—to check social media (66%), read the news (44%), play games (44%), order food (35%) and handle work-related tasks (22%). However, the vast majority of mobile app users (69%) report having problems with apps—27% on a daily or weekly basis.

Apps that don’t provide good customer support are more at risk of being deleted or ignored: nearly half (47%) of app users say they just delete apps that are frustrating and don’t provide any customer support. Others will: give the app a bad review (24%), trash the app to friends (19%); and complain about the app on social media (18%).

What’s more, the Helpshift survey shows that app users don’t want to have to exit...

Two Apple patents hint at future iterations of the...

Two newly granted Apple patents (numbers 20170238091and 20170238091) hint at features in future HomePods. The patents are for a “rotationally symmetric speaker array” that could sense when you’re in the room and adjust the audio accordingly.

Apple’s HomePod is expected to go on sale in December and cost $349. The device is just under seven inches tall and looks like a piece of furniture. It will be available in both space gray and white, and also acts as a hub for HomeKit devices to provide remote access to home automation.

In the patent filing, Apple notes that speaker arrays are often used by computers and home electronics for outputting sound into a listening area. Each speaker array may be composed of multiple transducers that are arranged on a single plane or surface of an associated cabinet or casing. 

Since the transducers are arranged on a single surface, these speaker arrays must be manually oriented such that sound produced by each array is aimed at a...

Ireland to collect back taxes from Apple (...

The Irish government will comply with the EU ruling to collect 13B (about $14.5 billion) in back taxes from Apple, but isn’t happy about the prospect. The country worries about being held accountable for any depreciation on the money, which will go into an escrow account if the tech giant should win an appeal at some point and need a refund.

Finance Minister Paschal Donohoe, in an interview with a German newspaper, says, “We are not the global tax collector for everybody else.”

The European Commission, Europe’s anti-trust and consumer investigation agency, claimed that Ireland, Luxembourg and the Netherlands have attracted investment and jobs by helping big companies avoid tax in other countries, including EU members. The commission suspects Ireland was too lenient in rulings it gave to Apple and which helped the company shield tens of billions of dollars...

Intel publishes details regarding “Ice Lake”...

With its 8th-generation Coffee Lake processors arriving next week, Intel has released information pertaining to its upcoming 10-nanometer “Ice Lake” chip, which will serve as the successor to the 14-nanometer Coffee Lake and 10-nanometer Cannon Lake chips.

The company stated that “the Ice Lake processor family is a successor to the 8th generation Intel(R) CoreTM processor family. These processors utilize Intel’s industry-leading 10 nm+ process technology,” via its codename decoder web site.

The timing comes as irregular, as Intel has not announced or shared details on its Cannon Lake processor. The Cannon Lake line will represent the first chips that will be built on its 10-nanometer architecture, and Intel is also referring to Ice Lake as the successor to its soon-to-be-announced 14-nanometer Coffee Lake chips, leading to confusion about its upcoming processor lineup and how Cannon Lake fits in.

Per AnandTech, Intel’s current Kaby Lake processors were...

Rumor: Next-gen Apple Watch may feature LTE support...

The next-gen Apple Watch may arrive with LTE, but it may focus the LTE data on serving FaceTime and app data needs as opposed to making cell phone calls.

Per a note released to investors on Wednesday, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicted that the Apple Watch with LTE won’t support traditional cellular voice calls this year.

Kuo claimed that Apple will probably add support for calls in a future software update. Until then, apps such as FaceTime and Skype could serve as stand-ins for calls.

“Technologically, while it’s feasible for LTE Apple Watch to support voice service & replace iPhones’ phone function,” Kuo wrote, “we think it must first improve the user experience of data transmission (not via iPhone).”

From Kuo’s perspective, as indicated in the research note, the lack of call support would both allow Apple to scrap 3G connectivity entirely, relying solely on LTE and allowing for a simpler antenna design.

Kuo also stated that...

The udoq is an organizer that works with iOS and Android devices. According to the manufacturer, it’s designed to “eliminate the search for cables and chargers.” Mission accomplished. Alas, it doesn’t reduce cable clutter, although one big change could make that happen.

The udoq is a unique docking station in that it adapts to most old or new mobile devices of any brand or generation and allows full use of each gadget while they’re being juiced up. The clever design allows gadget connectors to be moved inside the charging rail, so you can quickly change the distance and placement of devices you’re powering up.

The udoq is made of sturdy aluminum and is available in several models for iOS and Android (I tested the 400 model for Apple devices):

  • udoq 250 (9.8 inches long). $110.80 (iOS), $98.80 (Android);
  • udoq 400 (15.7 inches long). $146.70 (iOS), $128.70 (Android...

Apple tops list of ‘brand affinity with millennials’

Moosylvania, a brand building agency, has released its 2017 top “100 Millennial Brands” report, which averages 15,000 responses from 2013-2017 in categories include electronics, gadgets, gaming, soft drinks, clothing and cars. Apple took the top spot.

Moosylvania has advocated that the most effective marketing for millennial consumer acceptance must “make millennials, look good, feel good and keep them entertained.” This year’s list, as a five-year average, underscores the fact that top advertisers don’t necessarily rank. And as millennial consumers are getting older (they’re now 17-37), the almost-40 crowd leads in digital connectivity more often than not.

Despite rumors across the years, Apple still hasn’t made a virtual reality move of its own. And while Samsung’s top phones have the Gear VR headset and some Android phones support Google’s Daydream platform, there’s nothing of comparable quality for the iPhone.

But there is a lower-end alternative that works across iPhone and Android phones, and it might not cost you much of anything. Google Cardboard is an entry-level take on mobile VR, and it lets you strap your existing phone into a cheap, portable viewer and then pop it on your face. While the experience isn’t nearly as immersive or...

Reliable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities has an update to the recent LTE Apple Watch report that includes a few details about what to expect. Kuo expects cellular models of the Apple Watch will use an eSIM and not a physical SIM card as a space-saving measure, and the cellular connection may only be used for data transfer and not phone call features.

External Link: Botched Firmware Update Bricks Smart...

Home automation can be great, but it’s not without downsides, as owners of the LockState RemoteLock 6i have discovered. An errant software update rendered the remote control aspects of their locks inoperable, although the locks can still
be unlocked with a key. Airbnb hosts are particularly affected because RemoteLock locks can be integrated directly with Airbnb to manage and monitor Airbnb properties remotely. The worst part? To fix the problem, users must ship their locks to LockState to replace the firmware, which takes 5 to 7 days, or LockState can send a replacement lock, which will take 14 to 18 days. Either way, owners of these locks must physically remove them to address this digital problem.

New iDevices Dimmer Switch is compatible with Siri

  • With a sleek, minimalist design that fits any standard rocker faceplate, the iDevices Dimmer Switch integrates into any home’s existing lighting system.

Have a fourth-generation Apple TV and a hankering to watch four college football games simultaneously? If you're a subscriber to a cable or satellite service that offers ESPN and use the ESPN Apple TV app, check later today for a new version of the app that will let you watch four live feeds from ESPN simultaneously.

The update was reported by Recode today, and apparently users just need to long-press on the Siri Remote while watching an ESPN feed to invoke a split-screen viewing capability. With the capability, it's possible to display four streams at the same time. ESPN expects the new feature to be popular this fall, when it can broadcast up to 55 college football games on any Saturday.

In the April through June quarter, Apple shipped an estimated 16.9 million units of iPhone 7 and 15.1 million units of the iPhone 7 Plus. Juha Winter, a Senior Analyst at Strategy Analytics, said that "iPhone 7 remains the world's most popular smartphone model overall, due to a compelling blend of user-friendly design, extensive supporting apps, and widespread retail presence for the device."

By comparison, Strategy Analytics estimates that the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ shipped 10.2 million and 9 million units respectively. These phones were released in...

Face ID anti-FUD: Easing anxiety over the unannounced

Rene Ritchie, iMore:

Apple hasn’t even announced Face ID, the rumored facial identity scanner that would join or replace Touch ID, the fingerprint identity scanner, on the next generation of iPhones 8, but already we’re seeing a great deal of concern and even fear over how it will and won’t work.

And:

One of the biggest areas of fear, uncertainty, and doubt surrounding a potential Face ID facial identity scanner is that it will make it easier to law enforcement and government agencies to gain access to our devices.

Rene digs into the concern itself (someone could grab my phone and point it at my face to unlock it) and explores the validity of that worry.

A solid read, all the way through. Rene is a smart cookie.

Personally, I see Face ID and Touch ID as roughly equivalent in terms of someone using me to break into my phone. Add to that, Apple has not yet announced such a product. I’d prefer to save my worry for something a bit more tangible...

∞ Accidentally Famous: The story behind the original...

[VIDEO] This is from a Ted Talk Susan Bennett gave last year. Watch the video embedded in the main Loop post. One particular nugget (about 1:17 in):

One of the original engineers was from Norway. His name was Dag Kittlaus. He was responsible for naming Siri. In Norwegian, the name Siri means “beautiful woman who guides you to victory”.

Fascinating to see Susan Bennett tell these origin stories. My sense, from the iOS 11 beta, it that Siri is moving toward a more generic, machine generated voice. Yet, in the latest commercials (with The Rock), Susan appears to do all the Siri voice work.

It’ll be interesting to see how all this will play out. Will Susan be “classic Siri”?

Motherboard:

During its initial printing run, International Data Group printed just 7,500 copies of DOS for Dummies.

And:

By 1993, the series had sold 1.3 million copies on its own. Now there are 1,950 individual books in the series, covering a whole lot of things that have nothing to do with computing, and the books have sold upwards of 300 million titles.

And:

Recently, I bought a book—quaint, I know—and I’m probably the only person to have purchased this book or anything like it in more than 20 years.

It’s a reference book, the kind that you can still pick up at Barnes and Noble today. But it’s best described as what you’d get if you combined a phone book, a Matthew Lesko free money guide, and the internet.

That book is really the crux of the article. A fascinating look back at a time before Google, when the Internet was but a toddler.

As the battle to create original content for online video services continues, we get a glimpse into Apple's plans for the coming year. According to a report from The Wall Street Journal, Apple has a budget of $1 billion to spend in 2018 to "procure and produce" original content. The iPhone maker could acquire and produce up to 10 shows next year with this money, which will be largely left in the hands of new Apple hires Jamie Erlicht and Zack Van Amburg. Erlicht and Van Amburg are former presidents from Sony Pictures Television that moved to Apple in June to oversee video content strategy and production.

Apple readies $1 billion war chest for Hollywood...

Wall Street Journal:

Apple Inc. (AAPL) has set a budget of roughly $1 billion to procure and produce original content over the next year, according to people familiar with the matter–a sign of how serious the iPhone maker is about making a splash in Hollywood.

Combined with the company’s marketing clout and global reach, that immediately makes Apple a considerable competitor in a crowded market where new media players and traditional media companies are vying to acquire original shows. The figure is about half what Time Warner Inc.’s HBO spent on content last year and on par with estimates of what Amazon.com spent in 2013, the year after it announced its move into original programming.

And:

Programming costs can range from more than $2 million an episode for a comedy to more than $5 million for a drama. An episode of some high-end shows such as “Game of Thrones” can cost more than $10 million to produce.

The back-to-back success of the original...

In one of their first major moves since joining Apple as heads of worldwide video programming, Zack Van Amburg and Jamie Erlicht have brought in Matt Cherniss to oversee development.

As a reminder, Van Amburg and Erlicht were hired away from Sony, where they shepherded hits like The Crown, Breaking Bad, and The Black List through production.

Cherniss, a respected veteran network development executive, had been in demand since he recently stepped down as president and general manager of WGN America and Tribune Studios.

Cherniss will be a lieutenant to Amburg and Erlicht. Apple is building a formidable team here. Now all they need is money.

Apple is officially open for business in Hollywood. From a report: The company is telling content makers it wants to spend $1 billion on its own stuff over the next year. That's music to studios' ears, and a tune they have been expecting for some time -- especially after Apple hired two top Sony TV executives in June. We still don't know what Apple wants to do with that content: The Wall Street Journal says Apple wants to make up to 10 "Game of Thrones" -- or "House of Cards"-scale shows, but that's not enough to launch a full-scale subscription service.

The decision of the popular writing app Ulysses to switch from a one-off purchase to a monthly or annual subscription has attracted a great deal of criticism. Here’s a sprinkling of views from the comments.

Subscribe to a text editor? I’m out.

I bought this on iOS last week. As far as I’m concerned, that was a total waste of money now they’re moving to this subscription model.

This “rent your software” crap needs to stop, and people need to stop defending it.

Ulysses is a great app and I wish the developers all the best, but I’m out, looking for alternatives.
