Hands-on: Turbo charge your MacBook Pro graphics...

The 2016 MacBook Pro has endured criticism for its lack of I/O ports, but what that it does have — two or four Thunderbolt 3 ports based on your configuration — have lots of potential. For example, it’s now possible to connect an external GPU (eGPU) box via Thunderbolt 3 and tap into the power offered by a full-sized graphics card.

In this hands-on post, we’re going to showcase how to power the 13-inch 2016 MacBook Pro with an eGPU using Sapphire’s AMD RX 480. The RX 480 is modestly-priced GPU with a decent amount of power that’s good enough for 1080p gaming. The connection is made possible by means of the...

Rumor: the Apple Pencil 2 is coming this spring

The Chinese language Letem svetem Applem — as reported by AppleInsider — says an "Apple Pencil 2" will arrive this spring, featuring a new magnetic system that will allow it to temporarily attach to an iPad. 

This would allow users to place the Apple Pencil on the iPad securely when not in use, allowing it to attach magnetically just like the iPad Smart Cover. I think the rumor is true and that the second gen Apple Pencil will arrive in March with an updated line-up of iPad Pros.

What’s more, I think the input will likely get expanded capabilities in the near future. Apple has filed for a patent (number 20160364091) for “devices and methods for manipulating user interfaces with a stylus” that show it being used with iMovie, Messages, Calendar, and other apps. In fact, in the patent filing, Apple notes...

Newly discovered Mac malware found in the wild also...

A newly discovered family of Mac malware has been conducting detailed surveillance on targeted networks, possibly for more than two years, a researcher reported Wednesday.

The malware, which a recent Mac OS update released by Apple is detecting as Fruitfly, contains code that captures screenshots and webcam images, collects information about each device connected to the same network as the infected Mac, and can then connect to those devices, according to a blog post published by anti-malware provider Malwarebytes. It was discovered only this month, despite being painfully easy to detect and despite indications that it may have been circulating since the release of the Yosemite release of OS X in October 2014. It's still unclear how machines get infected.

"The first Mac malware of 2017 was brought to my attention by an IT admin, who...

Supreme Court won’t review a lower court finding in...

The U.S. Supreme Court has declined to review a Federal Circuit finding that it is jurisdictionally barred under the high court’s Cuozzo decision from considering if the Patent Trial and Appeal Board erred when it invalidated two SightSound Technology patents challenged by Apple on grounds Apple didn't explicitly raise, reports Law360.

In 2011 SightSound Technologies, whose parent company is General Electric, sued Apple for patent infringement. The company claims Apple infringed, among others, patent 5,191,573 for a “method for transmitting a desired digital video or audio signal.” SightSound claims that iTunes and the Apple TV, among other products, infringe on the patent. The company wants a financial settlement “adequate to compensate for Apple’s infringement of the Patents-in-Suit,” as well as court costs.

SightSound has spent years in patent lawsuits with Apple, CDNow, Bertelsmann, Napster and others. The...

Flying with AirPods

Zac Hall, 9to5Mac:

AirPods are a totally different product than my wireless Bose QC35s which have longer battery life and active noise cancellation not to mention superior audio quality, but AirPods were easily preferred as my travel earphones after real world testing for a few reasons.

Nice detailed overview on pros and cons (mostly pros) of flying with AirPods. I do tend to travel with noise canceling over-the-ear headphones, but Zac makes the AirPods sound like a reasonable alternative, especially if packing space is tight.

Good read.

Rene Ritchie, commenting on the September iPhone 7 rollout:

Where before you could press firmly on your iPhone 6s display to trigger 3D Touch and get a reassuring “thump” in response, with iPhone 7 you get a broader, deeper, more sophisticated range of responses.

Some of them are delightfully subtle: Spin through a date or time picker and you can feel a slight “tock” for each number. Thumb across alternate characters on the keyboard and you can feel a little “tick” for each accent.

Then this discussion of Nintendo Switch haptics, from the NeoGaf forums:

The demo that blew my mind was the marble box.

Imagine you are holding a small wooden box, with x amount of marbles inside. As you move the box, you can feel them move and clack against each other.

Music streaming now has more paying subscribers than...

Music Business Worldwide:

According to a recent report from the much-respected Midia, there were 100.4m people paying for music streaming subscriptions at the end of 2016.

The company’s Mark Mulligan estimates that around 43m of these were subscribing to Spotify, with 20.9m signed up to Apple Music, 6.9m to Deezer, 4.5m to Napster and just 1m to TIDAL.

The rest of the 100.4m subs were made up of other services, suggest Midia’s numbers.

And:

Meanwhile, Netflix is currently forecasting that it finished 2016 with 87.8m paying subscribers – a 24% jump on its Q4 2015 number (70.8m.)

Both are still growing by leaps and bounds, but music streaming, at the moment, is growing more quickly.

AT&T discontinues 2G network, ends cellular...

It’s time to move on where AT&T, the first-gen iPhone and cellular service are concerned.

On Monday, AT&T announced that its 2G wireless network was officially shut down on January 1, 2017, following four years of planning for its discontinuation.

This means that the 2G network available to the original first-gen iPhone will no longer receive cellular service from the AT&T network.

The shutdown appears to have affected relatively few people, as there were few if any vocal complaints from first-gen iPhone owners when the service was discontinued two weeks ago. Still, from here on in, customers who keep the device as part of a collection will only be able to use it on Wi-Fi.

Originally released in June of 2007 and discontinued in 2008, the first iPhone was made obsolete by Apple back in 2013, and it has not received software updates since the 2009 release of iPhone OS 3, later renamed iOS 3.

Even though the 2G network was shut...

Rumor: Apple planning iPhone 6 battery replacement...

If you’ve been having troubles with your iPhone 6 battery, Apple may have a warranty program en route to help out.

An unconfirmed rumor has stated that Apple may be preparing a battery replacement program for the iPhone 6 handset, much the same as the popular iPhone 6s battery replacement program.

When Apple announced the 6s program, it said that only a ‘very small number’ of 6s units were affected, all of which were manufactured during a two-month period, making it seem unlikely on the face of it that the same issue could affect an earlier model.

The iPhone 6s battery replacement program became controversial for its $149 charge for fixes to a separate iPhone 6 Plus ‘Touch Disease‘ issue which it said was caused by repeated impact damage.

Apple generally hasn’t charged for similar repairs to out-of-warranty products, so this came as something of a shock to many users.

We’ll have additional details about the potential iPhone 6 battery...

LiftMaster plans HomeKit compatibility

LiftMaster, which makes installed garage door openers and access solutions, is bringing the promise of Apple HomeKit compatibility to the company's MyQ-enabled garage door openers. HomeKit is a framework that allows control of compatible home automation devices through iOS and Siri.

Beginning in April 2017, all LiftMaster residential garage door openers can be easily upgraded to work with HomeKit using the new MyQ Home Bridge.

"LiftMaster and Apple have worked extremely hard to bring an outstanding LiftMaster MyQ experience to the HomeKit ecosystem," says John Villanueva, vice president of Marketing. "HomeKit users are going to be very pleased with the level of integration, usability and reliability we will be delivering with MyQ technology."

Users can open, close, or check the status of their garage door, and turn MyQ-connected lights on or off using the Home app via their iPhone,...

Angry Birds Blast isn't explosively fun, but it...

Free-to-play games often look appealing, but it’s difficult to know at a glance whether the business model is insidious and fun ruining, or reasonable and worth pumping a few bucks into. With Freemium Field Test, we’ll take a recent free-to-play iOS game, put it through its paces, and let you know if it’s really worth your time (and money).

Angry Birds mania is seemingly past its prime, although the nearly $350 million worldwide gross of last year’s The Angry Birds Movie seemingly ensures that the franchise will keep hanging around for a while. In recent years, however, rather than keep iterating upon the familiar pull-and-fling formula (aside from the solid Angry Birds 2), Rovio has mostly delivered an array of spinoffs that bear little resemblance to...

India may have found creative way to offer local...

It appears that the Indian government may have found a creative way to agree to Apple’s request for financial incentives to manufacture iPhones within the country – without being seen to give special treatment to one particular company. Apple had asked for a number of concessions, including a 15-year import duty on iPhone components, manufacturing equipment and consumables.

Earlier reports had described conflicts between different government departments with differing objectives. The IT and industry ministries wanted to agree to Apple’s terms, as it would be a big win to sign up the world’s largest company to its Made In India program, while the finance ministry was reluctant to lose the import duty revenue.

Two reports today suggest that the government may have found a creative way out of the...

I read many books to my kiddos when they were young, and I love reading to my granddaughter. If you’re a parent or grandparent, I hope you do, too. However, if there are times when that’s inconvenient, you can have the Apple TV handle the job thanks to iBooks StoryTime.

It’s a free app aimed at the preschooler who is just starting to learn to read. iBooks StoryTime lets you open a virtual book on any HDTV that’s connected to an Apple TV. A narrator reads the stories while virtual pages automatically turn on-screen. Words are highlighted on-screen as they’re read aloud. In some cases there are sound effects. If you start a book, and don’t finish it, StoryTime picks up where you left off the next time you open it.

You can turn off Read-Aloud narration if you want to read the book to your child yourself. You can even use the Siri Remote to swipe between pages.

AirPods wish list: 3 ways Apple can make its...

Apple’s AirPods launch wasn’t exactly smooth. A months-long delay led to rumors as to why that delay happened—could it be that the Bluetooth accessory Apple designed as the perfect complement to its headphone jack-free iPhone 7 wasn’t ready for prime time? But Apple started shipping AirPods in late December, just before the holidays, and has since captured 26 percent of the wireless headphone market. Apple CEO Tim Cook said the earphones are a “runaway success” and that Apple is making them as fast as possible.

US Antitrust Agency Sues Qualcomm Over Patent...

Qualcomm shares have plunged after the U.S. Federal Trade Commission filed a lawsuit against the company on Tuesday, accusing the company of using "anticompetitive" tactics to maintain its monopoly on a key semiconductor used in mobile phones. Reuters reports: The FTC, which works with the Justice Department to enforce antitrust law, said that San Diego-based Qualcomm used its dominant position as a supplier of certain phone chips to impose "onerous" supply and licensing terms on cellphone manufacturers and to weaken competitors. Qualcomm said in a statement that it would "vigorously contest" the complaint and denied FTC allegations that it threatened to withhold chips in order to collect unreasonable licensing fees. In its complaint, the FTC said the patents that Qualcomm sought to license are standard essential patents, which means that the industry uses them widely and they are supposed to be licensed on fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory terms. The FTC complaint also...
