The Apple Daily Report for Dec. 5, 2016

The AWT News Update is on hiatus while my compadre, Steve, takes a road trip. In its place, I’ll offer a text-only (no podcast) summary of breaking stories with a tip o’ my hat to my former website, Apple Daily Report.

Apple is readying some upgrades to its iCloud Photos web app found on iCloud.com, according to MacMagazine. The Photos web app allows users to access their iCloud Photo Library through a web browser, across Mac and Windows computers.

Games developers say they have detected significant abuse of Apple’s refund policy on apps, and are being forced to take their own steps to hit back after Apple refused to help. At least four developers cited in The Korea Times say that the problem is that people are...

On a regular basis, Apple World Today posts a list of notable new apps or app updates that have been released. They may not necessarily be new, but they're popular and deserve mention. Here are today's picks.

Facebook’s Affordable Housing Efforts

Om Malik:

I applaud that Facebook has taken the first step. However, I have doubts that the $20 million it is contributing toward affordable housing in East Palo Alto and Menlo Park is the answer. It is a perfect example of short-term thinking and trying to assuage your internal guilt with a check to charity.

I don’t know what the answer is here, but I do know how real the problem is in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Xero now integrates Apple Pay through Stripe

Xero has announced the integration of Apple Pay through Stripe. Xero is online accounting software for small businesses.

Its 862,000 subscribers can now offer their customers the ability to view and pay an invoice using Apple Pay through Stripe, a technology company, operating in over 25 countries, that allows both private individuals and businesses to accept payments over the Internet.

Invoices paid with a payment service get paid almost 80% faster than invoices that don’t offer a payment service, says Craig Walker, Xero’s chief technology officer. 

Currently businesses that want to pay an invoice via credit card need to enter their credit card details to complete the payment. 

Credit card payments via Stripe mean that customers can confirm...

Brydge Technologies makes outstanding aluminum, color matched keyboards for most iPads. Co-founder Nicholas Smith took over the original, failing company founded on Kickstarter and breathed new life into it. That was in the form of an outstanding customer relationship and order fulfillment systems. In this episode I chat with Nick about how he turned the product around, moved his company, with 15 people, from SIngapore to Park City, Utah (more consumer focus), decided not to use Apple’s Smart Connector and flourished in a market that now embraces iPads with keyboards. Nick also talks about what prepared him for this kind of venture, his turn-around artistry, and his vision for keyboards on our beloved iPads. He also provides a glimpse of his next new keyboard project. Bonus: we talk about skiing.

Facebook Videos Explain AI in a Nutshell

The videos are "simple and short introductions" that will "help everyone understand how this complex field of computer science works," they said.

Amazon.com is still figuring out how to use robots to fill store shelves, but it's about done with clerks. Next year, the company will open a convenience store in Seattle where shoppers can walk in, take what they want -- and leave.

The Amazon Go store is on the corner of 7th Avenue and Blanchard Street in Seattle, in the heart of Amazon's new campus development and a few blocks from the company's headquarters.

Amazon wants people to walk in to the store and then just walk out with what they want.

It's not giving the goods away, though.

To figure out who to charge, and how much, Amazon will identify shoppers by scanning QR codes on their phones as they walk in, and use sensors and computer vision technology to determine which items they take.

Isn't Fake News Propaganda?


A few years back, when it was one company, HP made a huge mistake that cost a number of people their jobs and forced the replacement of many of its board members. The company suffered through some nasty litigation and several top executives almost landed in jail. The mistake was tied back to something the board authorized, which at the time was called "pretexting." It also went by the more common term "identity theft." It is my belief that the board wouldn't have authorized the effort if it had known what the teams planned to do.

Some 2016 MacBook Pros Suffering USB Drive Problems

Some early adopters of Apple’s just-released MacBook Pros are seeing their machines shut down repeatedly and unexpectedly. The problem appears to stem from moving lots of data over multiple hard drives connected via Thunderbolt 3’s USB-C ports, which is, of course, the only way to connect them.

Apple Says It Is Working On Self-Driving Cars

For the first time, Apple has said that it is indeed working on technology to develop self-driving cars. The company confirmed late last week its previously secret initiative in a statement to the U.S. highway regulator. From a report on The Guardian: "The company is investing heavily in the study of machine learning and automation, and is excited about the potential of automated systems in many areas, including transportation," said the letter from Steve Kenner, Apple's director of product integrity, to the head of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The letter offered no details of the project, instead highlighting the "significant societal benefits of automated vehicles," which it described as a life-saving technology, potentially preventing millions of car crashes and thousands of fatalities each year.In a statement to Financial Times (might be paywalled), a spokesperson for Apple said, "We've provided comments to NHTSA because Apple is investing heavily...

Chrome version 55 rolled out late last week and drove another nail in the coffin for Flash on the web.

The company has yet to confirm that Chrome 55 did in fact roll out defaulting to HTML5. We have asked Google for comment and will update this story should the company respond.

Part of the original plan, which actually reaches all the way back to May, was that Flash would be click-to-play on sites that were still exclusively using Flash, although a select number of sites would be “...

A new report from IDC estimates that the Apple Watch continues to the best-selling smartwatch with about 40% marketshare but barely scrapes into the 5 top selling wearables list with 1.1 million unit sales, as the market is dominated by cheap fitness bands, a trend seen since the beginning of this year.

Apple’s wearable was outsold by rising fitness tracker sales from Fitbit, Xiamo and Garmin. Apple was the only vendor to see a drop in sales compared to last year; Apple is predicted to have sold 71% fewer Apple Watches in the third quarter of this year than what it achieved in the same period in 2015.

News: Developers pushing back against abusers of...

Apple’s full control of its App Store refund policy has drawn the ire of developers who say the company is allowing users to abuse loopholes to cheat them, The Korea Times reports. Apple independently determines whether customers get refunds, with developers unable to even obtain information about users that receive the refunds. That forces developers to track down users manually to ensure they’re not still using the content for which…

AMPware creates a smartphone case with an emergency...

The folks at AMPware has launched the US$89 AMPware case, a patent-pending charge case that has a crank (yep, a crank) located on the back of the case that folds out and can be turned to generate enough power for one hour of normal use from five minutes of cranking. 

As an additional bonus, the crank also doubles as a kickstand while watching videos. Its creators claims that an AMPware case creates more power than solar cases and can be conveniently used whenever and wherever there isn’t an accessible outlet or charger available

The AMPware case is currently available for the iPhone 6/6S and comes in either “shadow” or “sport” color options. An iPhone 7/7 Plus version is in the works. It features a 1000 mAh max output, mini 8-pin connector that’s replaceable and a rubberized knob that telescopes outward for a better grip. The case is made out of a polycarbonate shell and polyurethane rubberized bumper for drop...

Jean-Louis Gassée on the evolution of macOS and iOS

Jean-Louis Gassée, Monday Note:

In 1984, the Mac’s software engine, which included an AppleTalk network stack and a LaserWriter driver, ran on a single Motorola 68000 CPU and needed just 32K of ROM and 128K of RAM.

And:

Today, macOS is a fully-grown computer operating system, pleasant, fast, flexible. But it’s also enormous — RAM and disk storage requirements are measured in gigabytes — and it isn’t exactly bug-free. An ex-Apple acquaintance recently told me there are something like 10,000 “open” bugs on an on-going basis. The number that are urgent is, of course, a fraction of the gamut, but like any mature operating system, macOS has become a battlefield of patch upon patch upon patch.

And:

When the Apple smartphone project started, the key decision was the choice of software engine. Should Apple try to make a ‘lite’ version of OS X (as it was then known)? Go in a completely new direction?

[Note that Jean-Louis was the founder and CEO of...

IDC: Apple Watch sales drop 71% year-over-year

While the smartwatch market took a tumble this quarter, the overall wearables market grew 3.1% year-over-year in the third quarter of 2016 (3Q16). Total wearables shipments reached 23 million in the quarter, according to data from the International Data Corporation, (IDC) Worldwide Quarterly Wearable Device Tracker.

Apple sold 1.1 million smart watches in the quarter, down from 3.9 million in the same period a year-ago, a drop of 71% year-over-year, according to IDC. That places it in fourth place among global wearable device vendors, trailing Fitbit, Xiaomi, and Garmin. However, Apple is still the dominate smartwatch maker with just over 40% of the market — though that’s down from just over 70% in the third quarter of 2015. (IDC considers the wearables market to include smartwatch, fitness trackers and other devices.)

Users find some new MacBook Pros suffer from major...

Joe Rossignol, MacRumors:

Since new MacBook Pro models launched last month, an increasing number of early adopters have reported serious graphics issues on Apple’s latest notebooks. The glitches and other problems appear to be most prevalent on built-to-order 15-inch models, but standard 13-inch and 15-inch configurations are also affected.

One owner, Jan Becker, reports:

Apple called me from Cupertino. They put together a group of engineers to get to the root of this. I re-created the incident while I was on the phone with them and sent them the log files of the crash. They also want to “capture” my MacBook Pro with all the files on it to investigate more.

I love this response by Apple. Though they appear silent, they really do throw everything they have at a problem to get to the heart of it. They take this very seriously.

In a possibly related note, ZDNet’s David Gewirtz...

How Netflix reformats all downloadable videos to...

Janko Roettgers, Variety:

Netflix is cutting each and every video into one-to-three-minute-long chunks. Computers then analyze the visual complexity of each and every of these clips, and encode with settings that are optimized for its visual complexity.

The resulting potential bandwidth savings are significant: Compared to the encoding tech Netflix uses for streaming, using this chunking method in combination with the new VP9 codec saves around 36% of bandwidth on average for videos that look the same to the human eye.

This new approach sits on a curve. On one end, the videos are much smaller, saving you space on your phone. On the other end, the videos look much better. What you get on your phone depends on the complexity of the particular chunk you are viewing. Interesting stuff.

What a caper. The car was a rental, so you know they didn’t plan on leaving it behind. But ramming the car through the front of the Apple Store disabled the car. No way to come back from that.

Interestingly, Apple has already replaced the front glass. I suspect there’s a warehouse somewhere with spare parts like this.

AKVIS releases Watercolor 1.0 for macOS

AKVIS has released AKVIS Watercolor for macOS and Windows. It’s an app designed to make a photo look like a watercolor painting.

You only need to adjust the settings to your taste and run the processing. Any ordinary image will turn into an aquarelle piece of art. Watercolor lets you experiment with a range of painting genres: from marine paintings and atmospheric landscapes up to human or animal portraits and still lifes. The app offers a number of ready-to-use presets that can be used to imitate different watercolor techniques. 

A demo is available for download. A Home license for activating Watercolor on two computers costs $49. On the Mac platform, macOS 10.7 or higher is recommended.

Apple is readying some upgrades to its iCloud Photos web app found on iCloud.com, first noted by MacMagazine. The Photos web app allows users to access their iCloud Photo Library through a web browser, across Mac and Windows computers.

However, it is somewhat rudimentary in its current state … but the beta.icloud.com site now includes a redesigned Photos app featuring a sidebar and thumbnail scrubber like what already exist in the native Photos app for Mac. Apple tests new features on beta.icloud.com before rolling them out to everyone, so the new features should be available for everyone soon.

This remarkable design brings a three level soccer pitch to an area the size of a parking lot. That’s three soccer fields, each big enough for 5-on-a-side competition, stacked one on top of the other. All of this is built into a portable solution, a temporary stack of fields that can be set up and then moved.

Follow the link, check out the picture.

Designed specifically to bring soccer to the tight confines of London, I suspect we’ll see this approach take root in other cities around the world.

Following up on the flickering issue we reported about, an undetermined number of 2016 MacBook Pro models are suffering from disturbing graphical rendering issues, with owners reporting full screen artifacts, screen tearing, flashing, random “glitches” and even system crashes. The issue, however, is related to overzealous third-party software and is not indicative of a critical hardware flaw.

Reports of graphics-related issues first surfaced after the release of the 2016 MacBook Pro.

While initial reports were unable to pin down a root cause for the errors, sources close to the story said that overaggressive or...

Amazon’s servers provide the backbone for much of the Web, and while upload speeds are improving, what happens when you need a few dozen petabytes backed up to the cloud? Enter Amazon Snowmobile, literally a giant truck with a mobile data center capable of physically moving up to 100 petabytes of your data to Amazon’s cloud servers. The concept is the evolution, both in name and function, of the company’s “Snowball” service, which ships customers data units with capacities up to 80TB. As for price, it’s in the “if you have to ask…” category, although Amazon says it aims to make the Snowmobile cheaper than any network-based data transfer which, even at gigabit speeds, would take a while.

Just when you thought Apple might have backed off a bit from the self-driving car market, this shows up.

Last week, the company submitted a letter to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) that suggests it’s currently eager to work with other companies in a data-sharing effort but is also keen to preserve privacy, which is in line with the hard-line stance it took in the Apple-FBI controversy earlier this year.

The letter is perhaps the most tangible proof of Apple’s interest in the autonomous vehicle market and offers the following passage written by Steve Kenner, Apple’s director of product integrity, on November 22nd:

The company’s director of product integrity Steve Kenner wrote that Apple is “investing heavily in the study of machine learning and automation, and is excited about the potential of automated systems in many areas, including transportation.”

Kenner did not say if the company would design or make self-driving vehicles or perhaps only license some of its machine learning software to car makers, reflecting Apple’s continued reticence on its plans for the automated vehicles market. The company could not be immediately reached for more information on its plans.

Why Netflix downloads offline video to your iOS...

One of the reasons it took Netflix so long to allow subscribers to download video for offline playback, says the company, is that it wanted to make sure that TV shows and movies didn’t eat up huge amounts of storage on devices.

A piece in Variety reveals that while it was able to do this reasonably easily for Android devices – using a Google codec designed to significantly reduce the amount of data needed for high-quality video transmission – things weren’t quite so simple on iPhone and iPad. In fact, it ended up splitting video into chunks of just one to three minutes each to do the job …

Games developers say they have detected significant abuse of Apple’s refund policy on apps, and are being forced to take their own steps to hit back after Apple refused to help.

At least four developers cited in The Korea Times say that the problem is that people are repeatedly purchasing games and in-app content, asking Apple for a refund – which is normally granted without question – and then continuing to use the content. It is not easy for developers to block access to the content because Apple refuses to reveal the identities of those who have been refunded …

Video and visual technologies are becoming increasingly important for interacting with customers and each other, according to Gartner, Inc. The research group predicts that by 2017, live video broadcasting will be the new "selfie" and recommends that product managers start creating a "visual" strategy straight away to accommodate this trend.

"The next generation of consumer services and products has one main theme in common and that is video," says Brian Blau, research director at Gartner. "This means incorporating live video or other real-time technologies into products to engage users in live events and enable more personalized communications, providing better customer support, and offering best-of-breed video and TV experiences to connected homes."

Gartner expects a noteworthy shift from static photos to video, with live video becoming as important a medium. This will be a significant development as in 2014 alone...
