Acacia Research Corporation, the largest publicly traded patent-assertion entity, won a $22.1 million verdict against Apple last week.

A jury in the patent hotspot of East Texas found that Apple had infringed US Patent No. 8,055,820, owned by Acacia subsidiary Cellular Communications Equipment LLC. The patent describes a method of how cell phones can use "buffer status reporting" so that phone networks can optimize data usage. The patent originated at Nokia, which sold the patent to Acacia in 2013.

Acacia is in a controversial business that critics refer to as "patent trolling." The firm buys patents from others, uses those patents to bring litigation, and then...

With apologies to both Stanley Kubrick (deceased) and AWT reader Hal Sherman.

It's macOS Sierra day, so Apple's laptops and desktops are in the spotlight for once. Doing a bunch of upgrade work on a few Macs tied up a lot of Steve's day, but he managed to get some Sierra news for you:

∞ Apple consolidating Luxembourg operations to Cork...

From Apple’s email this afternoon:

As of September 25, 2016, iTunes S.à r.l. will complete its merger with Apple Distribution International in Cork, Ireland and will relocate its business from Luxembourg to Cork in early 2017.

Apple has been operating in Ireland since 1980 and now employs nearly 6,000 people. As we continue to expand our operations in Cork, we are moving our iTunes business there and will support content stores for more than 100 countries from our campus at Hollyhill.

This move was originally announced back in June. From this 2012 article in the New York Times:

Luxembourg has just half a million residents. But when customers across Europe, Africa or the Middle East — and potentially elsewhere — download a song, television...

macOS Sierra Is Now Available For Download

Dave Knott writes: Apple's latest desktop operating system, macOS Sierra, is now available for download. In addition to the Siri virtual assistant hitting the desktop for the first time, the free update includes features like a universal clipboard, revamped Messages, a storage optimization tool, and Apple Pay on the web.Engadget has also tested the new operating system and gave it a fairly positive review. It notes that Siri integration is "useful, if you already use Siri," and that iCloud and storage improvements have "practical benefits for everyone." But at the same time, the publication found that Siri "isn't always smart enough."

Schlage Sense Smart Deadbolt now works with Apple...

Here's a bit of good news for those who are trying to use iOS 10's new Home app to create a Siri-controlled home. Lock and hardware manufacturer Schlage today released an update to its Schlage Sense app that allows the Schlage Sense Smart Deadbolt lock to work with the Home app. iOS users get push notifications when their deadbolt is locked and unlocked, making it easier to keep an eye on home security.

The Schlage Sense Smart Deadbolt will now let you "talk to unlock" when you're within Bluetooth range of the lock, or users can tap the touchscreen numeric pad to enter a code if they're outside without a key or iPhone.

Lock activity can be monitored if you want to know when the door has been locked or unlocked, and a built-in alarm senses door attacks.

The Schlage Sense Smart Deadbolt is available at most "big box" hardware retailers as...

Apple is moving its iTunes business to Ireland

iTunes S.à r.l., Apple’s Luxembourg holding company,  will complete its merger with Apple Distribution International in Cork, Ireland, on Sept. 25, and will relocate its business from Luxembourg to Cork in early 2017. The distribution center facilitates operations for the call center, sales, manufacturing, service and OEM management for products sold in the EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) region.

The new iPhone 7 costs more to make than previous...

IHS Makit estimates that a 32GB iPhone 7 requires $219.80 in bill of materials costs. The firm's preliminary analysis further reasons an additional $5 basic manufacturing cost, bringing the total cost to produce the above-mentioned configuration to $224.80 (that’s an unsubsidized retail price of $649). 

Compared to IHS’s 6s examination, this total is $36.89 higher per unit. The research group hasn’t yet completed its teardown of the iPhone 7 Plus.

With the component strategy modified, improved capabilities, doubled storage capacity across the iPhone lineup and competition from other makers, the increase in bill of materials appears to represent a natural progression of the cost of doing business within a demanding smartphone market,” notes Seeking Alpha (www.seekingalpha.com).

Apple’s Live Photos were introduced with the iPhone 6s last year and have slowly made their way to third-party apps and services. One area that has lagged in support for Live Photos, however, is the web. This is primarily due to the fact that Apple doesn’t offer a first-hand solution for adding Live Photos to websites. Tumblr, however, has taken a roundabout approach to supporting the feature and is rolling it out today.

TASCAM Users: Don’t Upgrade to macOS Sierra Yet

As has become unfortunately typical from TASCAM, macOS Sierra-compatible drivers for much of their audio hardware are not yet available. Previous years have seen a three-to-six month wait after the release of each new build of OS X for TASCAM to finally put out even preliminary public beta drivers.

Along with the official release of macOS Sierra, Apple on Tuesday released major updates to its iWork apps, Keynote, Pages, and Numbers. The main feature included in the update is real-time collaboration, which allows for multiple users to work together on a document, presentation, or spreadsheet.

According to the release notes, multiple users can edit a file at the same time, through the iWork app on the Mac or iOS device, and through iWork for iCloud for PC users. You can see the participant’s cursor as edits are happening, and you can see who else is working on the file.

According to a new report by IHS, Apple’s component costs for the iPhone 7 have risen compared to the previous iPhone. This means you are technically getting more bang for your buck when you buy an iPhone. But don’t fear, Apple is still making a tidy margin higher than the industry average.

The report says Apple’s bill of materials for a 4.7-inch iPhone 7 with the base 32GB storage is $220.80. Apple sells this iPhone 7 for $649 at retail so there’s plenty of room for Apple to make money. Full breakdown of component costs after the break …

In addition to the availability of Safari 10.0 and macOS Sierra today, Apple also updated the iWork suite of apps -- Keynote, Numbers, and Pages -- to version 6.0. The updates were hinted about during the September 9 keynote, when the real-time collaboration feature for iWork was briefly discussed. The iOS and iCloud.com versions of the apps have already received the collaboration update; today's update makes the feature universal.

Real-time collaboration is still a beta feature, but in testing with up to 15 other people playing with a document, we found that it works well and is very quick.

It Took a Couple Decades, But the Music Business...

According to latest number from RIAA, music sales in the first half of the year were up 8.4 percent, to $3.4 billion -- the best performance the music industry has seen since its peak days back in the CD era. Recode adds: That boom is fueled entirely by the growth of paid subscription services. This year's numbers include Apple Music, which didn't exist a year ago but has 17 million worldwide subscribers today, as well as Spotify, which has been growing faster than Apple and has 40 million global subs. Digital downloads via stores like iTunes, meanwhile, are falling behind. Those sales dropped 17 percent to $1 billion. And some people still buy CDs, but soon that business will be a footnote: Those sales dropped 14 percent and now make up just 20 percent of U.S. sales. All good, right? Not according to Cary Sherman, who runs the RIAA, the labels' American trade group. He has a Medium post complaining that YouTube doesn't pay enough for all the music it streams, almost all of which...

The best feature comes to those who are sending pictures from one Google Photos user to another. You’ll get a ping to import the pictures right into the app, so you don’t have to mess with MMS or other third-party sharing options.

Siri is now on the Mac. Users can look up information, find documents, pin or drag and drop search results, and even adjust system preferences. Integration with iCloud makes everything from your Desktop and Documents folder available on your iPhone and iPad so you always have access to the files you need. 

The new Universal Clipboard feature allows you to copy content, including text, images, photos and video from one Apple device and paste it in another. Apple Pay comes to the Mac in Sierra so it’s even easier to shop securely and privately online, according to Craig Federighi, Apple’s senior vice president of Software Engineering (who, in my humble opinion, is Apple’s best presenter at these events).

Retail spending on recorded music grew 8.1%  to $3.4 billion in the first half of 2016, according to a draft midyear report from the Recording Industry Association of America that was obtained by Bloomberg News. That means the U.S. industry is on pace to expand for the second straight year -- the first back-to-back growth since 1998-1999.

Mac: Apple macOS Sierra

As in previous years, Apple debuted another major version of its Mac operating system back during the June Worldwide Developer’s Conference, but with a slight twist this year — the company is retiring the traditional “OS X” name in favor of calling the new operating systems macOS, bringing the naming more logically in line with iOS, tvOS, and watchOS. While still continuing the same version numbering — it’s 10.12 under the hood — today’s public release of macOS Sierra (free) feels like the first pages of a new chapter in the evolution of the Mac operating system, bringing with it even more features to unify the experience with iPhone, iPad and even Apple Watch users.

How to make your own bootable macOS 10.12 Sierra USB...

It was 2009 when Apple last released a new operating system on physical media. Things have proceeded remarkably smoothly since version 10.7 switched to download-only installers, but there are still good reasons to want a reliable old USB stick. For instance, if you find yourself doing multiple installs, a USB drive may be faster than multiple downloads (especially if you use a USB 3.0 drive). Or, maybe you need a recovery disk for older Macs that don't support the Internet Recovery feature. Whatever the reason, you're in luck, because it's not hard to make one.

As with last year, there are two ways to get it done. There's the super easy way with the graphical user interface and the only slightly less easy way that requires some light Terminal use. Here's what...

Lion, the first in this cadence and the first release to pull in a significant number of features from iOS, feels like a half-finished version of Mountain Lion in retrospect. Mavericks stripped out some of previous versions' skeuomorphism and superfluous texture, but the Mac didn’t fully match with...

Find My iPhone does much more than its name implies

Find My iPhone is a default app included with iOS and it can be used for much more than simply finding a lost iPhone.

The app is at the core of Apple’s phone security if you lose your iPhone or it is stolen. You can log onto Find My iPhone from another iOS device signed into your Apple ID or with a web browser at http://www.icloud.com. After launching the app or clicking on Find My iPhone on the iCloud website, you’ll be asked to log in with your Apple ID. If you have two-step authentication enabled for your Apple ID you will be asked to enter the secondary passcode.

Upon logging into Find My iPhone, a map with all the devices used with that Apple ID is displayed. Devices owned by other people on a family plan will be displayed on the map as well. If a device has been located, it’s indicated by a green circle that can be clicked for details....

macOS Sierra software update for Mac rolling out now...

It’s been a week since iOS 10 debuted on iPhone and iPad, and now it’s the Mac’s turn with macOS Sierra. OS X is officially no more; long live macOS (version 10.12 to be precise). As its name cleverly suggests, macOS Sierra brings Siri to the Mac for the first time since the voice assistant was introduced in 2011 with the iPhone 4s.

You can free up space on your Mac with a new optimized storage feature, sync your clipboard (and desktop and documents folders) between your Apple devices, watch videos from Safari with picture-in-picture, and use Apple Pay on the web to easily make purchases. You can even bypass your lock screen with your Apple Watch thanks to auto-unlock.

Here’s how to update and what to try in macOS Sierra:

∞ Apple’s jet black iPhone 7 Plus perfect storm

In yesterday’s Barrons blog:

The most bullish note today is from John Donovan and Steve Mullane of BlueFin Research Partners, who had written on the topic a week ago.

The authors today write that Apple is “frantically asking component suppliers to pull in deliveries in a mad rush to deliver incremental iPhone 7 units by year end,” citing higher-than-expected for the new device.

From the referenced BlueFin report:

Demand for the jet black model has been red hot, with speculators in China paying as much as $2,300 according to our checks. Last week we mentioned an almost TMZ-like reporting environment surrounding the Samsung Note 7 saga. The videos of autombiles catching fire while airports and TSA posting warnings...

Reader’s Digest has announced the results of its second annual Trusted Brands Survey, published in the October issue (on newsstands today). Apple was the “most trusted brand” in the “mobile phone” category, though Dell was the “most trusted brand” in the “computer” category (say what?).

More than 5,000 Americans across the country participated in the online survey, which awards the “Reader’s Digest Most Trusted Brand” title to winners in 40 product categories, including travel, food and beverage, automotive, beauty and healthcare, retail and customer service, financial services, household items, consumer electronics and more.

The Reader’s Digest survey found that trust continues to be a very important factor in consumer decision making, with 78% of this year’s survey participants stating they would choose a brand that’s been identified as more trustworthy than a different brand with equal quality and price. In addition, the study reported 67% of U.S...

Make money from your awesome ‘Shot with iPhone 7’...

While companies like Apple shoot most of their own photography and/or create their own renders, most companies rely a great deal on so-called ‘stock photography’ – photos shot on spec by photographers in the hope of licensing them to companies later.

Selling stock photography can be extremely hard work. You have to upload and keyword them, and the percentage of photos that sell is very low even for top-notch photographers. But if you want to give it a shot, Adobe has just made the process really painless …

Juli Clover, writing for MacRumors:

Many customers who pre-ordered a Jet Black iPhone 7 Plus received shipping estimates ranging into October and November, but it appears Apple is working hard to overcome supply constraints and get shipments out earlier than expected.

Starting this morning, MacRumors began hearing reports from customers who originally had deliveries scheduled for a month or two out but will now be receiving their devices over the course of the next few days.

No early delivery love for my iPhone 7 Plus, at least not yet. Holding out hope, though. Glad to see this bit of news.

Find your missing Apple Watch

Andrew Leavitt, writing for 17 Orbits:

Starting in 2010 Mobile Me enabled you to hunt down your missing iPhone (or iPad) with the Find My iPhone app. In 2011 OSX Lion added ‘Find My Mac’ to the mix. Beginning this week watchOs 3 enables iCloud to locate your misplaced Apple Watch.

And:

Until now real-time geolocation was only possible if your missing Apple Watch and iPhone were in Bluetooth range or on the same WiFi network. Since the watch does not have its own cellular signal that would seem to limit location tracking to within 10 meters or your home WiFi. Once out of range, however, iCloud now kicks in and reports the watch’s present location by GPS or WiFi triangulation. If the watch is turned off the last known location is reported. Accuracy is enhanced because the Apple Watch can still connect to previously known WiFi on its own (even when phone is physically far away).

Read the post and give it a try. You can track your Apple Watch (along with all...

We’ve already seen teardowns of the iPhone 7 and Apple Watch Series 2, but a rather brutal teardown by Vietnamese site Tinhte has given us our first look at the rather astonishing amount of technology packed inside Apple’s deceptively simple-looking 3.5mm-to-Lightning adapter.

There had been some speculation about whether Apple had managed to squeeze a Digital-to-Analog Converter (DAC) into it or whether the company would instead find a way to do simple pass-through audio. I was certain it had to have a DAC, and this has now been confirmed …

As the music streaming market reacts to the introduction of Pandora Plus, as well as new on-demand services anticipated from Pandora and Amazon, research shows Pandora with the leading share of weekly music streaming hours in the United States in the second quarter of 2016. 

Nearly one-third (30%) of the time consumers spent streaming music occurred on Pandora, followed by YouTube at 27% and Spotify at 18%, according to MusicWatch, a company providing consumer research for the music industry. For the paid “on-demand” music subscription segment, Spotify Premium posted a 7% share, followed by 2% for Apple Music. 

“Pandora’s strength in the market represents a major opportunity to migrate listeners to new tiers of services, including on-demand and revised lower-price offerings,” says Russ Crupnick, managing partner of MusicWatch. “At the same...

Review: Wolffepack, the backpack that solves the...

It’s amazing how heavy a bag can become when you throw in a few gadgets. Backpacks are by far the most comfortable way to carry heavy loads, but they do have a few drawbacks.

First, they aren’t the most convenient of things to access. If you want to pull out your iPad or a camera, for example, you have to remove the backpack and either put it down somewhere or awkwardly hold it in one hand while wrestling with zips with the other.

Second, they can be a liability in crowded places, taking out innocent bystanders on public transit when you turn around. Third, those same very crowded places put your valuables at risk from theft as access is behind your back, out of sight. Finally, you have to remove the pack if you want to sit down.

There are existing solutions to these problems, but none work as well as the Wolffepack …
