Apple shareholder suit accuses Cook, Jobs, others of...

A new lawsuit, filed on behalf of plaintiff R. Andre Klein, is seeking damage compensation for Apple shareholders as a result of alleged misconduct by the company's directors and executives. Lawyers for Klein accuse former CEO Steve Jobs, current CEO Tim Cook and others of "breach of fiduciary duty, gross mismanagement, corporate waste, and breach of the duty of honest services." Specifically, by engaging in anti-poaching practices, Apple leaders are said to have caused the company to break antitrust laws, issue misleading proxy statements, and suppress workers' wages....

A strange new type of USB cable that aims to solve an age-old problem.

Dianxinshouji.com.cn

If reader reaction is any indication, most of you are looking forward to the new reversible USB Type-C connector spec that was finalized earlier this week. Some pictures snapped today by dianxinshouji.com.cn (and spotted by MacRumors) claim that Apple is already working on its own solution for its next-gen Lightning cables, a type of reversible connector that will fit into a USB Type-A port in either orientation.

Such a cable would have to use very thin parts to fit into existing USB ports, and making these parts thinner is only going to increase...

30 year old blood test billionaire

Elizabeth Holmes is only 30 years old, but has a lifetime of success. Back in 2003, Holmes was a sophomore at Stanford University and envisioned a process of performing blood tests with a device that required much less blood (just a drop) than existing blood tests (normally requiring a vial or two of blood).

This is a fascinating story, one that reminds me in many ways of Steve Jobs and Apple.

Apple’s CEO Tim Cook is the latest notable person to undertake the Ice Bucket Challenge, and doused himself with icy water in the name of charity at a company event earlier today. The challenge was created to raise money for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, better known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease. So far, numerous celebrities and tech personalities have undertaken the challenge, including Apple’s marketing chief Phil Schiller, who posted a shots of himself getting doused on a beach today.

“Under the rules you also get to call out others who have to do the challenge themselves, or face social shame.” Really? Do you really think these kinds of powerful people can be peer pressured into doing things?

The Mac Observer Spin: Banning these two chemicals is an important step towards protecting workers. The idea of someone getting nerve damage so that my iPad or iPhone can look great when I first open the box is a non-starter.

Nerval's Lobster (2598977) writes Given the hundreds of thousands of apps currently on offer, it's hard for any one app (no matter how well designed) to stand out on Apple's App Store, much less stay atop the bestseller charts for very long. In an August 10 blog posting, former Apple executive Jean-Louis Gassée offered Apple CEO Tim Cook some advice: Let humans curate the App Store. 'Instead of using algorithms to sort and promote the apps that you permit on your shelves, why not assign a small group of adepts to create and shepherd an App Store Guide,' he wrote. 'A weekly newsletter will identify notable new titles, respond to counter-opinions, perhaps present a developer profile, footnote the occasional errata and mea culpa.' Whether or not such an idea would effectively surface all the good content now buried under layers of Flappy Bird rip-offs is an open question; what's certain is that, despite Apple's rosy picture, developers around the world face a lot of uncertainty and...

External Link: Apple Bans iPhone Toxins

Apple has banned the use of two chemicals that endangered the health of Chinese iPhone assemblers: N-hexane, which was used to clean screens, but could also cause nerve damage and paralysis; and Benzene, which was used to coat electronic components, but is a known carcinogen. However, these chemicals are still in use further up in the supply chain, and Apple is being pressured to eliminate them from the entire chain.

External Link: The Origin of “x” to Close

Lauren Archer on Medium has tracked the origin of the use of “x” as a symbol to denote closing a window. While it’s now ubiquitous on both Mac and Windows, it wasn’t a common convention until Windows 95, but she traces its origins before then, to Atari TOS 1.0, with a possible link to Japanese culture.

News: Report: Apple meets with Thai officials...

Thai officials revealed on Wednesday that Apple received approval to sell two new iPhone models in the country, and a new report notes that a seemingly displeased Apple has met with those officials about the disclosure. The translated report, from Thai Rath, also makes a point to note that the new devices may or may not be called “iPhone 6,” leaving some doubt into what the names of the new devices will actually be; “iPhone Air”…

If the Internet Could Speak: 'I'm Melting...


Millions of users were unable to access the Web Tuesday, according to reports. The websites of eBay, Amazon, Autotrader, LinkedIn, Time Warner and Verizon were among those hit. The problem is due to a combination of factors: router configuration; the explosive growth of connected devices; and IPv4 running out of addresses. "The industry faces many limitations with communications, ranging from wireless spectrum to core network bandwidth, and there is never a single solution to overcome these limitations," said tech analyst Rob Enderle.

Although NBTC Secretary General Takorn Tantasith only disclosed the general name of the product and two model numbers -- A1586 and A1524 -- and was allegedly following government guidelines in doing so, Apple argues that he released confidential information....

Hands On: Lego Mindstorms EV3 for iOS, Android

With kids in the house, we're about hip-deep in Lego here, including some past iterations of the Lego Robotics kits. Late last year, Lego released the newest iteration of its Mindstorms set - the Mindstorms EV3. Coming in at $349, the app-enabled kit purports to teach children (and tech writers) about practical robotics. Does the kit do what it says it will, or is it destined to be stepped on in the middle of the night by irate parents?...

We learned yesterday that Thailand’s National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission has approved the sale of two unreleased iPhones, specifically with the model numbers A1524 & A1586, ahead of the expected announcement on September 9th. Confirmation of the approval for the new iPhone models was even publicized via Twitter by the NBTC’s Secretary General in addition to being discussed on video.

Whether or not the two new model numbers point to the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch versions of the next generation iPhone or simply changes to existing iPhone models sold in Thailand isn’t certain until the devices hit the market, but a local report filed from Thai Rath...

Apple makes Fortune’s 100 Fastest-Growing Companies...

Apple might have dropped from #38 to #88 this year on Fortune’s list of the 100 Fastest-Growing Companies published today, but it’s also making the list for its 8th consecutive year. That means Apple has now been on the list more than any other company and also has the longest streak of consecutive appearances.

There aren’t a lot of other high profile tech companies that made the list, but a couple notables include Baidu at #46 and Tivo at #73.

Fortune’s list ranks companies (with a market cap of $250 million or more) based on revenue growth rate; EPS growth rate; and three-year annualized total return for the period ended June 30, 2014.

Apple is banning the use of two toxic chemicals from final assembly processes for its products, after watchdog groups demanded the company replace the substances with safer alternatives.

Earlier this year, Green America and China Labor Watch had called on Apple to eliminate the use of benzene and n-hexane from its supply chain. Both substances are known to be poisonous, but are still in use at Chinese factories, including those that build Apple products, the groups claimed.

On Thursday, Apple said it investigated 22 of its final assembly facilities and found “no widespread use of benzene or n-hexane, and no evidence of worker health and safety being put at risk,” according to an online report. The investigation covered facilities that employ close to 500,000...

Per The Mac Observer and G4 Games, Apple is reportedly ready to flip the switch and start mass production of the iPhone 6 ahead of its anticipated September 9 media event to introduce the newest member to the company’s smartphone lineup. Assuming full scale production is ramping up now, that gives Apple about a month to build up inventory before the iPhone 6′s projected release date.

Sources speaking with Chinese media claim Apple is currently in the PVT stage, which is the final point before production...

Apple Hit with Shareholder Lawsuit Over Employee...

Apple's involvement in an agreement with other tech companies to not poach employees from each other has landed it in another lawsuit, this time from a shareholder claiming the deal cost the company value, and that executives misled investors. The class action lawsuit names current CEO Tim Cook, along with William Campbell, Millard Drexler, Arthur Levinson, Robert Iger, Andrea Jung, Fred Anderson, and the Estate of Steve Jobs.

The Mac Observer Spin: Then-CEO Steve Jobs didn't want his engineers working for the competition, and in this case his efforts to keep his employees from working for Google, Intel, and other companies looks to have been a overzealous. This new shareholder lawsuit is a perfect example of how the decision to go down the employee anti-poaching path is going to be an ongoing headache for Apple for some time.

The Biggest iPhone Security Risk Could Be Connecting...

angry tapir (1463043) writes Apple has done well to insulate its iOS mobile operating system from many security issues, but a forthcoming demonstration shows it's far from perfect. Next Wednesday at the Usenix Security Symposium in San Diego, researchers with the Georgia Institute of Technology will show how iOS's Achilles' heel is exposed when devices are connected over USB to a computer or have Wi-Fi synching enabled. The beauty of their attack is that it doesn't rely on iOS software vulnerabilities, the customary way that hackers commandeer computers. It simply takes advantage of design issues in iOS, working around Apple's layered protections to accomplish a sinister goal.
