Apple TV gained a new feature earlier this year called Live tune-in that lets you tell Siri what channel you want to watch and jump right in to the current stream. The feature is somewhat difficult to discover, but Apple maintains a list of “live channels” that work with Live tune-in on the fourth-gen Apple TV.

Review: Thought Out Simplex Tablet iPad Stand

We recently received Thought Out's Simplex Tablet iPad Stand ($30), which is as simple as its name suggests. Simplex is a $30 steel stand with an "oven baked finish" coating. The stand comes with vinyl holding pads already attached — to prevent an iPad from rubbing on the steel — as well as four feet to protect the stand from scratching any surface. Simplex should be able to hold any iPad, and the stand also includes gaps for cable management, which makes it easier to charge an iPad while viewing in either portrait or landscape mode.{/exp:char_limit}

Opera earlier this week released a new version of its browser, Opera 40, which comes with a free virtual private network service built in. The official rollout follows five months of user experimentation with a beta version. The company evaluated beta users' feedback and subsequently brought on additional servers, added options for global or private browsing, and created versions that would run on iOS and Android. The VPN creates a secure connection to one of Opera's five servers around the world, letting users spoof their IP address.

The company said it believes a “state-sponsored actor” was behind the data breach, meaning an individual acting on behalf of a government. The breach is said to have occurred in late 2014.

Review: SmartX Galaxy ZEGA Starter Kit

There's been an interesting market developing over the past few years for iPhone-controlled toys, beginning with Parrot's original AR.Drone in 2010 and moving on through a series of smaller drones, battle tanks, rovers, rolling balls, and more. While each of these have had their own merits, most of the toys we've seen in this category have generally been simple remote control devices with open-ended play and no specific "gaming" element behind them. This makes Galaxy ZEGA, a new entry into the market from Chinese startup SmartX, all the more interesting, as the company has gone quite a ways beyond the simple RC model into creating an interactive game that mixes real-world play with a more typical gaming experience, extending on-device gaming into the real world. It's currently available for pre-order and should be available soon — it was released in China in 2015.{/exp:char_limit}

Apple is known to be notoriously bad at social — look no further than Ping, a social feature embedded in iTunes that Tim Cook killed because no one used it.

Apple isn’t completely socially awkward either. Music lets you tweet and post playlists, Photos lets you share Photo Streams with contacts and on the web, and iOS share sheets facilitate the majority of my social sharing.

When on an Apple platform, these URLs appear to act as deep links into the native Maps app. If viewing in Chrome or on a non-Apple device like Android, the fallback webpage is loaded. The purpose for these URLs is unclear, but it may possibly foreshadow a larger move by Apple to offer its own online mapping service to compete with Google Maps on the web.

iPhone 7 display technology shoot-out

Dr. Raymond M. Soneira, DisplayMate:

But that is as far as it goes… The iPhone 7 display is a Truly Impressive major enhancement and advancement on the iPhone 6 display… and even every other mobile LCD display that we have ever tested… note that I hand out compliments on displays very carefully. And for those of you thinking of Emailing that we got hand-picked units, the iPhones were purchased retail from Verizon Wireless.

The iPhone 7 got extraordinarily high scores, and this from someone who really knows display tech. Read the post for the details, but this is one area in which the iPhone 7 is hands down the best in class.

Apple looks to open first store in Samsung’s backyard

Jonathan Cheng, writing for the Wall Street Journal:

Apple Inc. has made inquiries about opening its first retail store in South Korea, in a signal that the technology giant may be looking to step up competition in smartphone rival Samsung Group’s backyard.

Apple looked at sites across the street from the Samsung’s longtime headquarters in Seoul, according to people familiar with the matter.

The Cupertino, Calif. company, which is Samsung Electronics Co.’s biggest rival in the mobile-phone market as well as a major customer of its smartphone components, is looking at locations near the South Korean company’s own three-story global flagship store in Seoul’s upscale Gangnam neighborhood, the people said. The company has sent retail executives to South Korea in recent months to check out potential sites for the store, they said.

The New York Times’ dark, dark Messages review

Amanda Hess, writing for the New York Times:

Apple built an empire on hermetically sealed systems with sleek, minimalist designs. Nowhere was its strategy more evident than in iMessage, the company’s instant messaging system that offered a free, elegant chatting solution exclusive to Apple devices. Until last week, that is, when Apple updated its software, cracked open iMessage and allowed the ephemera of the outside internet to seep in.

And:

These features mimic the aesthetics of the open internet, which is obsessed with nostalgia and is not exactly subtle. But they can’t replicate the feeling of collecting digital miscellany in our travels across the internet, remixing the material and sending it along to friends who might appreciate the find. The programmatic iMessage sucks the spontaneity from the experience. It standardizes the strange.

And:

Mostly, this thing feels like Facebook. A new class of iMessage apps — yes, apps within an app — lets...

Apple buying McLaren would make perfect sense

Jordan Golson, writing for The Verge:

An acquisition would give Apple a small but significant carmaker that has enormous amounts of technological expertise in building drivetrains, vehicle control systems, and navigating complicated supplier-OEM relationships. McLaren also has significant experience working with advanced materials like carbon composites, aluminum, and carbon fiber.

It’s a small but important firm, best known for its sports cars — it sold 1,654 road cars in 2015 — and its Formula One team. But the company is much more than just a car manufacturer. The 5,000 employees of the McLaren Technology Group work across six different divisions including automotive, racing, marketing, and as an automotive supplier for race teams and high-end performance cars.

McLaren has quietly been growing its consulting division as well. McLaren Applied Technologies works with firms across a number of industries — both automotive and otherwise — to provide R&D and...

Apple has been granted a patent (number 201602755475) for “group peer-to-peer financial transactions.” With macOS Sierra, Mac users can now pay online in Safari using a “Pay with Apple Pay” button, and authenticate their purchase using Touch ID on their phone or watch. Soon owners of iOS and macOS devices may be able to easily send electronic cash to each other.

In the patent filing, Apple notes that, as we move to a more mobile and fast-paced society, the use of cash or currency is being increasingly replaced by electronic transactions using credit cards, debit cards, etc. It’s pretty common for consumers to hold multiple non-currency accounts concurrently (e.g., multiple credit cards or debits cards corresponding to a respective banking provider), each of which may be dedicated for a particular type of purchase or financial exchange. 

For example, a consumer may concurrently hold a credit card account that may be dedicated for gas or automotive purchases, a credit...

California Supreme Court votes to review a libel...

Paresh Dave, writing for the LA Times:

The California Supreme Court agreed to review Yelp’s objection to a decision ordering it to strip the Internet of comments posted about a San Francisco law firm.

The law firm owner, Dawn Hassell, sued Ava Bird, the disgruntled former client who allegedly posted the reviews — and lower courts agreed that Yelp should be forced to remove them.

And:

To the frustration of many plaintiffs’ attorneys, the Communications Decency Act has long freed online publishers from liability for user postings on their websites and apps. But many technology experts say the Hassell case may be the biggest threat yet to the immunity.

The appellate court found that no liability was being placed on Yelp, and thus the ruling didn’t go against federal law. Instead, as the “administrator of the forum” where defamatory speech existed, Yelp bears the responsibility of removal, the court said.

Experts in technology law say they’re...

When I tried the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, one of the things that put me off was the quality of the keyboards available at the time.

The Apple Smart Keyboard, that I got to try later, was a bit prettier but still not fantastic to type on.

What I really wanted at the time was for Brydge to bring out a version of its iPad keyboard for the 12.9-inch model. It eventually did so, and I got the chance to try it this week …

They’ve run the numbers and after a preliminary teardown, iPhone 7 component costs are estimated to start at $219.80, which is $36.89 higher than iPhone 6s, according to a preliminary teardown of a 32GB model by IHS Markit.

According to the report, the display remains the most expensive component, clocking in at an estimated $43 while the Intel modem and other baseband chips retail for about $33.90.

Apple’s quad-core A10 Fusion chip is the third most expensive item on the bill of materials, costing an estimated $26.90. Meanwhile, the larger 1,920 mAh battery is said to cost just $2.50.

The new rear-facing iSight camera and updated 7-megapixel go for a combined $19.90 while electromechanical components, including the Taptic Engine, antennas,...

Rumor: Apple in talks to acquire Lit Motors, may be...

Moving beyond the McLaren rumor, Apple is also said to be talking to Lit Motors, a small company that participated in the Startup Battlefield at TechCrunch Disrupt SF back in 2012, a contest they finished second in.

The San Francisco-based startup is developing a new kind of electric vehicle vehicle that seems something like a two-wheeled motorcycle that can’t tip over thanks to built-in stabilization technologies.

Lit is said to have only raised $2.2 million in total in venture capital and it’s unclear if the company still has money today to survive as an independent entity or if it has been looking for an acquirer.

Apple has been working on a car project for a few years now. While it’s still a secretive project, there are plenty...

The larger the screen, the larger the content?

Everyone who has ever tried to watch a full movie on an iPhone will probably agree that it's not the best way to see the latest blockbuster. On the other hand, a smartphone works just fine when you're watching a funny YouTube clip while commuting home from work. 

The point is: different devices are suited for different types of video content. A study by Ooyala confirms this: while only 49% of the time spent watching video on smartphones is spent with videos longer than 10 minutes, long-form video accounts for more than 80% of total video consumption on connected TVs. 

Interestingly, the rule is not as simple as "the larger the screen the longer the content." Tablets such as the iPad, which typically have smaller screens than desktop PCs such at the iMac, see a higher percentage of long-form video than PCs.

How to do a clean install of macOS Sierra

Sometimes it’s nice to do some thorough housecleaning on your Mac. This could mean doing a “clean install.” A clean install is a software installation in which any previous version — and all its files — are completely eradicated.

The alternative to a clean install is an upgrade, in which elements of a previous version remain. For example, when I did an upgrade of macOS Sierra on my Macs, elements of Mac OS X El Capitan remained. If I had done a clean install, those elements would be history.

If you decide to do a clean install on your Mac, back up all your important files in case something goes wrong. So if you want to do a clean install of macOS Sierra, first create a bootable drive of the operating system, then:

  • Make sure your Mac is online.
  • Click on the Apple icon ().
  • Choose Restart from the drop-down menu.
  • ...

Review: The still optional but pleasantly refined...

Video shot/edited by Jennifer Hahn. (video link)

Whether you wanted to or not, you knew about the Apple Watch as soon as it came out last year. And even if you heard "wearble" and immediately thought "fitness," Apple was very intentional about pushing the Watch's non-fitness features as the main reason to buy it. While there are things the Apple Watch can do that are primarily found in smartwatches versus fitness trackers, Apple hasn't yet convinced consumers at large that they need those features—or that they're worth $350, at least.

The true value of a smartwatch may still up for debate, but what's undeniable is that people see practical value in connected fitness devices. With the Apple Watch Series 2, Apple has decided to embrace...

The DKnight Big MagicBox is a solid, portable...

The DKnight Big MagicBox portable Bluetooth speaker offers surprisingly sound considering its low (under $60) price, though it won’t appeal to audiophiles. Then, again, that’s not the target audience. 

That audience consisted of folks who want an affordable wireless speaker that sounds good and which is easily transported to use with iOS devices. And, in that regard, it shines. Measuring 8.8 x 3.4 x 3..3 inches and weighing 1.4 pounds, it can fit in a suitcase or big backpack for a day trip.

Its tubular design makes it easy to grasp with one hand, even as one flat side makes it easy to be placed on a surface without it rolling off. It’s coated with soft touch rubber which protects your speaker and also the surface you want to place it on.

The Dknight Big MagicBox’s physical controls (for play/pause, skip, previous, volume up and down) are atop...

Opinion: Apple Watch Series 2 may right enough...

Read Zac’s full Apple Watch Series 2 review

I’ve never been entirely sold on Apple Watch. From the get go, I didn’t necessarily see a clear purpose for the device. Nevertheless, I purchased the first-gen model on launch day, being the Apple fanboy that I am. Over the course of my first year and a half with Apple Watch, though, I didn’t find myself consistently wearing it. I would go through phases where I would use it for a few weeks, but then I would go weeks without even charging it.

This year, Apple revamped the Apple Watch lineup and I was pressed with the decision of upgrading or sticking with my first-generation model. It didn’t make a lot of sense for me to spend money on something that I wasn’t consistently using, but factors such as the improved speed seemed like enough to dispel some of my issues with the first-gen. So much so, that I went ahead and purchased the Apple Watch...

The KeyMission 360 can corral 360-degree video in 4K UHD at 24p, as well as in the more traditional HD 1080p. It also shoots 30-megapixel stills. The unit has two f/2.0 lenses, each with a 20-megapixel CMOS sensor. The dual units eliminate a bane of 360-degree cameras: blind spots. Other features include automatic in-camera stitching; shooting modes like Superlapse, Time-Lapse and Loop; and a built-in stereo microphone.

A busy weekend for Apple retail locations

Apple's renovation of older Apple retail outlets continues at a fast pace, and this weekend will see the reopening of four US stores with the new Jony Ive/Angela Ahrendts design. 

The stores in question are the Brea Mall in Brea, California; Stoneridge Mall in Pleasanton, California, Clarendon in Arlington, Virginia; and Arrowhead Towne Center in Glendale, Arizona. Three of the four -- all except Clarendon -- are moving to new and larger locations in each mall. Clarendon was in the most need of a refresh, as it had not changed in exterior looks since it first opened in 2001. All four locations will reopen at 10 AM local time on September 24.
