Chrome 44 brings the Physical Web to iPhone, iPad

Google recently released Chrome 44 for iOS, an update that offers support for the company's Physical Web project, as well as some handy navigation features to the iPhone and iPad. 

With the addition of Google's Physical Web support, iOS devices are able to communicate with smart devices without downloading a special app for each gadget. Instead, you can communicate via web technologies using the Chrome widget from the Today view on iOS.

When enabled, the Chrome widget scans for smart devices that support Physical Web interactions by broadcasting URLs.  When your device finds an appropriate URL, you can choose the broadcasting device from a list displayed in the Today View, and then interact with it.

News: Apple planning Touch ID Apple TV remote?

While Apple has been expected for some time to release a new Apple TV with a remote that would reportedly incorporate a touchpad, a new patent revealed by Patently Apple suggests that Apple may be looking to go a step beyond a simple touchpad with an integrated Touch ID sensor. While the patent itself remains broad, referring simply to a “sensor configured to detect a biometric characteristic of a user,” a fingerprint appears to be the…

Apple is today launching its Back to School promotion for 2015. This year, it will give away a free pair of Beats Solo2 headphones with the purchase of an eligible Mac.  Customers must either purchase an iMac, MacBook, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, or Mac Pro with education pricing to qualify, including build-to-order configurations. The Mac mini does not participate in the deal.

Alternatively, customers can upgrade for an additional $100 to a pair of wireless Beats Solo2 headphones, rather than the usual $299 price. The announcement is not yet being advertised on Apple.com apart from a small mention on its rebates page. It is surprising that there appears to be no Back to School promotion for iPads this year, despite Apple pushing the tablet into education...

Apple plans to allow MFi program partners to begin integrating charging pads into Apple Watch accessories, 9to5Mac reports.

The importance of iOS overtaking Wintel unit sales

But that’s not the story at all. For one thing, Android overtook the Wintel world way back in 2012. The story here is that mobile utterly dwarfs desktop and laptop computing. Civilization has been changing under our very noses, and today even the second largest mobile platform outsells the world of Wintel.

This is an interesting take from Bryan Chaffin.

An example of current Apple Watch stands that must utilize Apple’s official Watch charging cable.

Apple will soon let manufacturers in its Made for iPhone/iPad/iPod (MFi) licensing program include charging pads for the Apple Watch directly in their accessories, according to sources. Currently, dock makers can only offer charging by making unsightly openings in their docks for Apple’s official charger to sit, forcing users to bring their own cable and install it, and compromising an ideal design and user experience in the process. By making charging modules available to manufacturers to use, however, customers will be able to buy docks and stands with integrated chargers without needing to use their own.

Apple releases firmware update for new MacBook Pro

Bought a new MacBook Pro recently? There might be a firmware update waiting for you.

Apple on Wednesday released the MacBook Pro Flash Storage Firmware Update 1.0, which, according to Apple’s website, is for mid-2015 MacBook Pro models. The website also sates that the firmware update fixes an issue that “may cause data corruption.”

In case you’re wondering, about the “mid-2015” part: When Apple releases new Macs, it uses identifies when the model was released with “early-,” “mid-,” or “late-,” labels. The 15-inch MacBook Pro currently for sale by Apple is labeled mid-2015. So if you have a MacBook Pro from mid-2014, you do not need to install the firmware update.

External Link: Flying the Unfriendly Skies

Mike Masnick of Techdirt reports on tech entrepreneur Brian Fitzpatrick’s close encounter with an unwanted DRM-plugin, courtesy of United Airlines. It seems the airline is beta-testing what it calls its “Personal Device Entertainment” option, by which passengers can use the in-flight Wi-Fi to view movies on their own devices. However, Fitzpatrick learned that the option requires the installation of a DRM-plugin and Flash on personal computers, and the required plugin is one considered dangerous enough that Google Chrome does not support it for security reasons. Maybe Fitzpatrick should have just rented headphones and purchased an alcoholic beverage.

Apple’s tough security requirements for Bluetooth LE...

If you were wondering why manufacturers seemed to be rather slow in launching HomeKit-compatible devices, it may all be down to Apple’s stringent security requirements. Forbes reports that manufacturers are finding it hard to incorporate the extremely secure encryption standards demanded by Apple in order to achieve MFi certification for their products.

Apple is requiring device makers using both WiFi and Bluetooth LE to use complicated encryption with 3072-bit keys, as well as the super secure Curve25519, which is an elliptic curve used for digital signatures and exchanging encrypted keys.

While mains-powered WiFi kit is coping, the processing...

A bug in the latest version of Apple's OS X gives attackers the ability to obtain unfettered root user privileges, a feat that makes it easier to surreptitiously infect Macs with rootkits and other types of persistent malware.

The privilege-escalation bug, which was reported in a blog post published Tuesday by security researcher Stefan Esser, is the type of security hole attackers regularly exploit to bypass security protections built into modern operating systems and applications. Hacking Team, the Italian malware-as-a-service provider that catered to governments around the world, recently exploited similar elevation-of-privileges bugs in Microsoft Windows.

Commodore's Ghost Lives in New Machine


Yet another Android smartphone hit the market last week -- but what's surprising is that it comes from Commodore. The Commodore PET smartphone is from Commodore Business Machines, a UK-based firm that has acquired the brand and trademark. It runs Android 5.0 Lollipop, and has a 5.5-inch full HD 1920 x 1080 IPS OGS display. Two preinstalled emulators let owners play games written for old-school Commodore PCs. The PET might appeal to Commodore aficionados, but "I'm not sure how many of us are still alive," quipped tech analyst Rob Enderle.

Two weeks after releasing the public betas of iOS 9 and El Capitan, Apple just pushed out new versions of both operating systems.

What’s new: Apple brought back Home Sharing in the second public beta of iOS 9, which means you can stream your iTunes library on any Apple device on your Wi-Fi network. The disappearance of Home Sharing in iOS 8.4 was greeted with outrage from users who don’t want to use Apple Music, which also allows you to stream music to any Apple device. Apple said it was “known bug,” and the fix is in—at least for beta testers. This beta version also supports the new iPod touch.

Canalys estimates 4.2 million Apple Watches sold in...

When Apple doesn't release unit sales numbers or revenues for a new product line, research firms do the next best thing; they estimate how many devices the company sold. That's what Canalys did in an estimate published yesterday suggesting that Apple shipped 4.2 million Apple Watches during the quarter ended June 27, 2015.

If the number is close, that means that the Apple Watch is the world's best-selling wearable, jumping past sales of competing smartwatches and even less-expensive fitness trackers by companies like Fitbit. 

Canalys suggested that the numbers would have been higher if Apple had launched the Watch during the 2014 holiday season, and that low shipments in April and May really put a damper on the numbers. The Canalys estimates surpasses estimates made by many Wall Street analysts prior to yesterday's earning call. Wells Fargo analyst Maynard Um estimated that just 2 million units were sold, while the consensus of a group of analysts was much closer at 4...

Podcast 466: Baby you can park my iPod

Remember Knight Rider? Remember how KITT, the awesome talking Trans-Am, could travel independently of our hero Michael Knight? Glenn came to San Francisco recently, and tested a few valet parking services that let you hand off your car in one place, go about your day fighting crime or whatever, and have your car brought to you in another place. (Michael Knight even had an Apple Watch prototype, if you think about it.)

When not freaking out about how very, very *Knight Rider* this whole thing is, Glenn and Susie discuss the sweet new iPod touch that Apple just released: Who's it for, what are its strengths, and could it hold any clues to the next low-end iPhone. The Apple Watch has been out almost three months, and still doesn't need Facebook (please, really, no Facebook), so we talk about what kinds of impacts it's made on us so far—if we're still wearing it, that is.

Roughly two weeks after the initial release, Apple has pushed out an update to users testing the iOS 9 public beta on iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. The latest public beta release follows the earlier release of iOS 9 beta 4 for registered developers developing for the upcoming operating system update. iOS 9 is set to be completed and shipped to all users later this fall. iOS 9 public beta 2 mirror’s yesterday’s iOS 9 beta 4 release.

Although Apple floated the concept with late versions of iOS 8 point updates, iOS 9 marks the first major version of Apple’s mobile software that is available for pre-release testing to non-developers.

Smart move: Apple disables app reviews for those...

In a move that is being widely applauded by developers, Apple is disallowing iOS 9 beta users to submit app reviews. The change came with yesterday's release of the fourth iOS 9 beta, and is designed to prevent negative reviews caused by beta incompatibilities that are usually fixed prior to the final release of a new version of iOS.

When testers running iOS 9 beta 4 attempt to post a review, an error popup appears saying "This feature isn't available. You can't write reviews while using a prerelease version of iOS". Many apps run as designed under the beta OS, but there are some that have experienced crashes or slow response when running under iOS 9. 

Developers have noted that some of their popular titles have experienced a drop in average star rating since the iOS 9 public beta was released. Sadly for the developers, they cannot submit patches for the iOS 9-caused issues at this time, so the problems will remain unfixed until iOS 9 is in general release this fall...

Developers working to make their apps compatible with iOS 9 now can’t be penalized for glitches that beta testers experience. In the fourth developer beta of iOS 9 that Apple pushed out on Tuesday, testers are no longer able to submit reviews in the App Store.

The change, first noticed by AppleInsider, is a welcome one for app developers. Until now, reviewers using beta versions of iOS have been able to leave critical reviews of apps not optimized for the beta software. This is detrimental to developers because users running the current version of iOS wouldn’t necessarily experience crashes or other problems associated with less stable beta software.

According to the firm’s data, Apple claimed a massive 75.5% of the global smartwatch marketshare in Q2 2015 with the launch of the Apple Watch in late April. It also shows that Apple’s entrance stole a huge portion of Samsung’s marketshare as the previous smartwatch market leader dropped 66 points from 73.6% marketshare to a single digit 7.5% …

News: Microsoft releases email messaging app for iOS

Microsoft has released its slimmed-down email messaging app, called Send, on iOS devices. Plans for the app leaked in May under the name Flow by Outlook, but despite the new name, details about the hybrid email/instant messaging app have remained mostly the same. The app works with Office 365 business and school email accounts, allowing users to send quick messages to any email address without bothering with the subject lines or signatures found in…

Apple changes policy, iOS 9 beta users now prevented...

Well, this is kind of a kick in the teeth.

As of the latest iOS 9 beta, Apple is preventing beta users from submitting app reviews.

Testers running Apple’s fourth iOS 9 beta, currently for developers only, are able to access the iOS App Store as usual, but no longer have the ability to post reviews. Attempting to do so now results in an error pop-up that reads, “This feature isn’t available. You can’t write reviews while using a prerelease version of iOS.”

The change is thought to have come about given that many public beta users might not be familiar with how operating system betas can be incompatible with an app that might be run on them...

Apple disables App Store reviews from devices...

As of yesterday, when the fourth developer beta of iOS 9 was issued to testers, those running a prerelease version of the operating system can no longer leave app reviews in the App Store. Negative app reviews left by beta testers is a perennial problem for app developers (as highlighted well in this post over on MacStories), and it's nice to see Apple taking steps to fix it even though OS X El Capitan beta testers can still leave app reviews as of this writing.

Up until now, users testing new iOS versions could leave bad reviews for apps that didn't work correctly under the new OS. The problem with this, of course, is that developers can't submit apps targeting the new OS until the software (and the development tools) are finalized. That leaves a three-or-so-month gap between when users can get the software and when developers can fix...

If you use your Mac with the Personal Hotspot feature of iOS, or with other mobile hotspots, allowing some apps to transfer data unchecked can result in expensive overage charges. The new TripMode utility lets you allow only specified apps to access the Internet, blocking bandwidth-hungry software like Dropbox that might chew data in the background.

This is Nifty: QuickShot

The mighty Jason O’Grady threw this out there as a cool thing worth looking into.

He might have a point.

QuickShot allows you to manage, view and share screenshots taken within OS X, making your images immediately draggable from your menubar.

Once an image has been taken, it can be shared through email, web links, social media and the like.

QuickShot is available for free and requires OS X 10.10 or later to install and run.

Microsoft has today launched Send, an experimental iPhone app that offers a kind of cross between email and instant messaging. Microsoft says that it is designed for “brief, snappy communications” where you want an instant response but also want to retain a record of what was said within Outlook. The app was previously leaked as Flow by Outlook.

While tools like text messaging and IM are great for short messages, you often don’t have your co-worker’s cell phone number or an IM app on your work phone. And we’ve heard loud and clear from people at work, they want all their communications available in Outlook—even if they send them from other...

Tim Cooks hints at wider Apple Watch retail presence...

Not surprisingly, Apple is looking to sell more Apple Watch units this holiday season.

And it plans to do this by increasing the device’s retail availability.

This news surfaced Tuesday, when CEO Tim Cook stated that the unit is expected the be a hot gift item this year and hinted at an increase in points of sale and/or inventory.

“We’re convinced that the Watch is going to be one of the top gifts of the holiday season,” Cook said.

Cook noted that the Watch has so far only been available through 680 points of sale. That could leave plenty of room for expansion, particularly if Apple decides to add more third-party retailers to...

Now, creating your own fun and trippy images is simple.

Realmac just announced that its Deep Dreamer public beta is available to download for Mac, so you can create your own weird pics using a native app. While in its beta state you can buy a full license for $14.99. Once out of beta, a license will set you back $24.99.

The Solus Project is a rebranded and rereleased Linux distro trying to regain its former popularity. In a field of Linux distributions cluttered with look-alike offerings, Solus brings something simple and something new. Solus has impressive potential for being uncomplicated and different. Based in the UK, the Solus Project is the latest iteration of SolusOS, which morphed into Evolve OS. The new Solus is not a complete porting of the old Evolve OS. Other than the bult-from-scratch Budgie desktop, much of it appears to be gutted.

Enjoy the sun safely with Alara for iPhone

Alara for iPhone (free with optional in-app donation) lets you monitor each day's UV index, which is the "expected risk of overexposure to UV radiation from the sun." The US EPA notes that one American dies of skin cancer every hour, and that "unprotected exposure to UV radiation is the most preventable risk factor for skin cancer." It was this very fact that drove developer Lee Morgan to develop Alara:

"A few years ago a friend of mine, whom I served with in the Air Force, was diagnosed with Melanoma. Upon his diagnosis he was medically discharged from service. I won’t go into the details but suffice to say dealing with melanoma has been very difficult for him and his family."

Morgan notes that he and his wife are light-skinned, increasing their susceptibility to melanoma...

How to configure a cheap, secure RAID backup system

We usually store our photos, documents, and more on a single hard disk—or, increasingly these days, a solid state drive (SSD)—but there’s always the nagging worry that the disk will fail, taking all your work and memories with it. Backing up using Time Machine, Super Duper!, or CrashPlan, say, is a good way of reducing this risk, but there is another: RAID.

RAID can be incredibly complicated, but it’s extremely worthwhile—one of the things it can do is to mirror the contents of one disk completely to another, all the time. While cloning your hard disk using Super Duper!, for example, is something that might happen once a day, with a RAID system, every bit of data that’s written to one disk is simultaneously written to the second, so that if one drive fails, you have a perfect copy of everything it contained on the second. (And optionally, if you replace the failed drive, everything will be mirrored back...

via Ryan Orbuch

In a move that will certainly please iOS developers, Apple has finally disabled the ability to write app reviews on the latest beta version of iOS 9. When attempting to review applications in the store, beta users will now be met with a message informing them that the feature is unavailable. The change was spotted by several Twitter users earlier this evening.

App makers have long been put off by low reviews from users experiencing problems related to unsupported versions of the mobile operating system, which often hurt an app’s overall ratings and possibly affected their downloads as potential buyers took note of the negative feedback without knowing the full context.
