The Flawed Logic in Not Upgrading Technology

The new 10.5-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro are pretty impressive, but Ashraf Eassa at The Motley Fool thinks upgrading to one is a bad idea. His reasoning: an even better model will come out next year. Of course there’s a new model coming and it’ll have new and better features. But his logic is the reason why people hobble along with computers, tablets, and phones that don’t meet their needs for far too long.

Amazon poised to enter the meal kits market

Part of the problem has been the price, but with Amazon coming on the scene, that could change. The online retailer is known for offering low prices. Once the Whole Foods deal goes through, it’ll have a strong grocery backbone to plant a stake. Throw in a well-established logistics and delivery systems and Amazon is poised to be a real meal-kits player.

I don’t know how a company like Blue Apron can compete with Amazon. The article is right though, price has been a deterrent in making meal kits even more successful. With Amazon entering the market, that could be fixed very quickly.

Starling Bank is a "fintech business with a banking licence" in the UK, that operates as a mobile-only bank with no brick-and-mortar facilities. Today, Starling Bank announced that it's not only providing its customers with Apple Pay, but that it will provide "in-app provisioning" so that customers can begin to use their contactless payments even before receiving a physical MasterCard Debit Card.

The bank will also allow customers to spend more than the £30 transaction limit made on other UK Apple Pay accounts, and those customers benefit from the security and privacy built into Apple Pay.

Mini-review: Compulocks Ledge brings back security...

One of the many slots in MacBooks that has disappeared over the years is the security slot. For anyone who doesn’t remember these from the pre-Retina machines, this was a small horizontal slot into which you could insert a T-shaped security lock attached to a cable.

You ran the cable around something solid like a desk leg, fed it back through a loop and then inserted the lock into the slot on your Mac. Locking it would twist the T-shaped element 90 degrees, securing it in place.

It wasn’t the highest security in the world – cable locks can be easily snipped with hand croppers – but it protected against opportunist snatch thieves in places like libraries and coffee shops. As of the Retina MacBook Pro, however, Apple removed the slot …

A closer look at the iPhone 8’s facial recognition...

Yoni Heisler, BGR:

While Apple tends to keep upcoming technologies and features under lock and key, its upcoming facial recognition software will likely be based on technology it acquired when it purchased an Israeli machine learning company called Realface earlier this year. Consequently, a close examination of Realface’s cutting edge technology can provide us with a number of significant clues as to what we can expect out of the highly anticipated iPhone 8.

And:

The company also claims that its software can recognize faces with an impressive 99.67% success rate, a figure which is actually higher than the 97.5% success rate most humans are capable of when it comes to recognizing faces.

And:

Realface’s technology is said to be so sophisticated that it can filter out photos, videos and even sculptures designed with the express purpose of tricking the software.

Fascinating tech.

AWT TV Episode 15: July 17, 2017

Last night, Steve and Marty were back for another hour of fun video on AWT TV. We had a few fun topics to discuss: analysts panicking about Apple (and of course they're saying that Apple is panicking, not them...), iPhone 8 facial recognition vs. Touch ID, burn-in with OLED screens, Qualcomm's CEO saying that he thinks that things will be settled out of court in the company's battle with Apple, Apple's issues with iMessage sticker packs, maybe having remote support of iOS devices, and an original Gary Katz fidget spinner.

Marty demonstrates two great utilities for iOS called System Status and Net Analyzer, which can tell you EVERYTHING about your iOS device. The apps are $2.99 and $3.99 respectively but can be purchases as a $5.99 bundle.

Apple’s risky balancing act with the next iPhone

Jason Snell, Macworld:

This is one of those areas where Apple may be the victim of its own success. The iPhone is so popular a product that Apple can’t include any technology or source any part if it can’t be made more than 200 million times a year. If the supplier of a cutting-edge part Apple wants can only provide the company with 50 million per year, it simply can’t be used in the iPhone. Apple sells too many, too fast.

And:

Most cutting-edge technologies are going to cost more and initially be available in limited quantities, unless Apple makes huge investments in equipment and manufacturing and corners the world’s supply of those parts, which it has done on more than one occasion.

Apple’s has to balance discriminators against practicality, bleeding edge tech that can help the latest iPhone stand above existing phones against the problems that come trying to buy that bleeding edge tech in adequate and reliable quantities.

Apple’s long history of rejecting ‘objectionable...

Louise Matsakis, Motherboard:

The App Store is the most successful guarded ecosystem in the history of the internet. For nearly a decade, Apple has undertaken a remarkable task—keeping an enormous software marketplace free from spam, malware, and risks to user security. And for the most part, it has been good at the job.

But at the same time, Apple has repeatedly rejected apps and refused to clarify its decisions to developers and users. While it’s also frequently corrected its mistakes, rejections like Metadata’s show that Apple is not afraid to wield its power without explaining itself.

The company has effectively dictated what kind of content should live on the devices we carry around with us everywhere, and stare at for hours each day. By controlling what’s allowed in its App Store, Apple has shaped how iPhone, iPad, and Mac users experience the internet.

The article includes a small handful of examples to make its point. As you read this, keep in...

CNBC:

Silicon Valley’s most powerful imagination belongs to a very powerful CEO.

That’s according to recent data from job search firm Paysa, which used IBM’s supercomputer Watson to determine that Apple CEO Tim Cook is the tech industry’s “most imaginative” leader. Cook is followed by Amazon’s Jeff Bezos, Oracle’s Larry Ellison and Cisco’s Chuck Robbins.

How they reached this conclusion:

To arrive at these results, Paysa fed “speeches, essays, books, the transcripts of interviews and other forms of communication produced by those highlighted above”— over 2,500 words — through the Watson Personality Insights API.

And here’s a link to IBM’s official Personality Insights API portal, if you want to play with this a bit yourself.

iPhone as a subscription service, Apple as a hit...

Benedict Evans, on iPhone as a subscription service:

One can certainly argue that selling smartphones is a subscription business, and though Google does not itself sell phones (to any significant degree), Apple certainly does. You pay an average of $700 or so every two years (i.e. $30/month) and Apple gives you a phone. Buy an Android instead and you lose access to the (hypothetical) great Apple television service.

On the idea of buying Netflix:

From a pure M&A perspective, buying Netflix and immediately limiting its business to Apple devices would halve its value – why buy a business and fire half the customers? Buying it without such a restriction would have no strategic value – Apple would just be buying marketing and revenue. But as Amazon has shown, you don’t have to buy Netflix – they’re not the only people who can buy and commission great TV shows.

And on Apple taking on the business of producing hit shows to enhance its content:

YouTuber demonstrates how to upgrade base-model 5K...

If you’re looking to upgrade your new iMac, this is for you.

YouTuber Quinn Nelson, also known as “SnazzyQ”, upgrades his $1,799 base-model Mid-2017 5K iMac into a machine that performs better in many respects than Apple’s most expensive iMac configuration, which comes to $5,299 before tax.

While this WILL void your warranty, there’s something to be said for it. Granted upgrading the CPU involves removing the display, removing the speakers, logic board, and more. Still, once the computer has been stripped down, CPU installation is literally just a matter of swapping out the old CPU with the new one.

Quinn states that his build took several weeks in all, but most of that time involved waiting on parts and planning out his video,. The actual work that he put in only amounted to an hour or so, but it obviously took a lot of research and planning beforehand.

Per Quinn:

The easiest part of his upgrade was the 64 GB of RAM. Thankfully, Apple threw...

CarPlay, iOS devices may soon tell when you exit...

Future implementations of Apple’s CarPlay and/or iOS devices may be able to tell when you’re driving your car and when exit your car and perform appropriate functions once it detects you’re no longer driving. Compatible with the iPhone 5 and later models, CarPlay provides a simplified way to use your iPhone interface on a car’s touch screen, giving users access to Siri voice controls, as well as Apple Maps, Apple Music, Phone, Messages, and a variety of third party apps.

Apple has been granted a patent (number 9,712,977) for “determining exit from a vehicle.” In the patent filing, Apple notes that mobile devices today can provide various functionality in response to a user request. For example, a user can request to see a navigation map or provide other user input to switch among user interfaces, or otherwise obtained desired functionality. However, users have to provide input to get the desired functionality.

Rumor: Apple’s suppliers may not reach mass-...

Apple may not start mass production of its next-gen iPhone for a bit.

According to the Economic Daily News, the typical production schedule for the iPhone lineup is not happening this year.

The report says that the new 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch phones are expected to ramp up in August, a month behind the normal new iPhone production timelines. Moreover, the OLED 5.8-inch iPhone (with bezel-less screen and all-new chassis design) may not be available until November.

The report states that Foxconn has secured the lion’s share of orders for the upcoming OLED model, which will feature almost no bezel yet pack a 5.8-inch screen into the same physical size as the current 4.7-inch iPhone 7.

Pegatron wil assemble most of the 4.7-inch iPhone 7s devices and a small number of the ‘iPhone 8’ devices (tentative naming), whilst Wistron will mainly focus on making the 5.5-inch 7s model.

Current reports have stated that the output at both Pegatron and Foxconn have...

By Frank Petrie

Arcade Hoops Basketball from Skyworks Interactive has been bouncing around on iOS devices for awhile. And no wonder: it’s a fine game. 

As the name implies, this iApp mimics the basketball machine that you'll find in any arcade. You have a choice of two games: Classic and Progressive. Both keep lists of high scores.

The Classic is shooting at a stationary hoop. The Progressive is where the hoop moves towards you and away from you.

The graphics are very good. And I really enjoy the game's default soundtrack. It goes right on by the cliched music used in sports games. There's three soundtracks to choose from and sound effects that you turn on or mute.

For the price (free! — but with in-app purchases), Arcade Hoops Basketball is quite impressive. And like all good iApp games, addictive. Well, worth your time and...

It’s uncertain how this will eventually affect Apple, which prohibits third parties from allowing its user data to be used for surveillance purposes.

“ISPs have incentives to shape Internet traffic and the FCC knows full well of instances where consumers have been harmed. AT&T blocked data sent by Apple’s FaceTime software, Comcast has interfered with Internet traffic generated by certain applications, and ISPs have rerouted users’ web searches to websites they didn’t request or expect,” said EFF Senior Staff Attorney Mitch Stoltz. “These are just some examples of ISPs controlling our Internet experience. Users pay them to connect to the Internet, not decide for them what they can see and do there.”

The FCC can’t seriously do this.

Andy Ihnatko is letting off steam as only he can, with an extended analogy about how he was just trying to make a ham-and-cheese sandwich but got distracted by an Internet-related error with the mustard. It’s silly, of course, but his larger point is that we’ve created a world built on so many dependencies that it’s amazing that anything works at all. We’ve all been there; the question is how we get back.

The Studio Neat Glif (circa 2017) with hand grip and wrist strap. Photo ©2017, Steven Sande

Back in 2010, people started taking the camera in the iPhone seriously. A couple of guys, Tom Gerhardt and Dan Provost of Studio Neat, thought that it would be a good idea to make a tripod mount for the iPhone, and they came up with the idea of the Glif. The product was one of the first crowdfunding successes on Kickstarter, and the Glif has since been updated several times to allow it to work with larger smartphones and make it easier to use. Today we’re looking at the latest incarnation of the Glif (US$29, $55 for set including handle and wrist strap), which proves that even the best products can be improved.

The original Glif was designed with one iPhone in mind — the iPhone 4. It...

HP Is Back: Should It Rename Itself Compaq?


HP just took over the PC market worldwide. You probably don't get how incredible this is, so here's an analogy: It's as if a crooked referee put a bunch of lead on an overweight racer and shuffled him to the back of the pack, but in the end, the guy finished first. You'd seriously want to look under his T-Shirt to see if you'd find Superman's costume. This isn't Apple coming up with an iPod or iPhone and flanking the market -- this is a firm that simply pushed on the gas pedal at a time when everyone said it was going in the wrong direction.

But ultimately we reached an impasse when OFCCP demanded even more: employees’ compensation and other job information dating back 15 years, as well as extensive personal employee data and contact information for more than 25,000 employees. We were concerned that these requests went beyond the scope of what was relevant to this specific audit, and posed unnecessary risks to employees’ privacy. Despite our repeated efforts to resolve this impasse informally, OFCCP issued a complaint against us demanding access to the information and asserting we had no right to challenge their requests.

Respect for standing up for what they felt was right.

The iPad Pro Leather Sleeve is an accessory that’s made for iPad Pro owners who use an Apple Pencil. The sleeve, with a price of $129 for the 10.5-inch model and $159 for the 12.9-inch model, is made out of leather and is available in four colors.

Considering its price tag, the Leather Sleeve is what I would call a luxury accessory. There are other options that provide similar protection at a much cheaper price, but for those of you who demand a high-quality Apple-branded product, the Leather Sleeve makes for an interesting option....
