It wasn't the money: Wozniak on robots, design...

More than 40 years after founding Apple Computer, Steve Wozniak has a lot to say about the early days of the world’s richest company—and about technology, learning, and being a born engineer.

On stage at the IEEE TechIgnite conference in Burlingame, California, on Wednesday, he gave a glimpse into how a tech legend thinks.

On open source

In the early 1970s, Wozniak read about phone phreaking, in which “phreakers” made free phone calls by using electronics to mimic the tones used for dialing each number. To learn how to do it, he went to the only place he knew that had books and magazines about computers: The Stanford Linear Accelerator Center. He went on a Sunday and walked right in. “The smartest people in the world don’t lock doors,” Wozniak said.

Digital Anarchy's Flicker Free plug-in a useful...

By Aaron Lee

Digital Anarchy's $149 Flicker Free plug-in for Adobe After Effects, Premiere Pro, and Apple's Final Cut Pro X gives video editors and visual effects artists a useful tool that fixes a wide range of footage affected with flicker or strobing. 

It analyzes on-the-fly, renders quickly, and easily produces flicker free footage. There are presets for different types of flicker, allowing it to fit into a variety of workflows.

Flicker is a problem that affects several types of video footage. Time lapse suffers from variation in exposures. Archival footage flickers because of old cameras or lights. Slow motion or high speed video can be affected by the flickering of electric lights. LED lights, TVs, and computer monitors cause flickering when out of sync with the camera.

Flicker Free deflickers all these types of footage and more. It analyzes the...

MTS: The "laptop bag" that can save your...

It's a dangerous world out there. You can be enjoying yourself in a hotel, visiting a tourist site somewhere, maybe just picking up your bags at an airport or attending a meeting in an office building. The next thing you know, bullets are flying or bombs are going off. The MTS Multi-Threat Shield from Force Training Institute ($899, law enforcement discounts available) is an instantly deployed bulletproof shield that can also carry a laptop or tablet.

Did that get your attention? At $899, this isn't the bag for everyone. It weighs 8 lbs., so it's not exactly the lightest "computer bag" ever produced. But the lifesaving properties of the MTS -- the ability to "defeat multiple impacts from most handgun, shotgun and pistol caliber sub-machine gun threats" and even protect against high-powered rifles with an optional Level III insert plate -- can make it worth the price to anyone who needs ultimate protection.

The Echo and other various Alexa-equipped devices are rapidly becoming the go-to when you need assistance at home, though Apple’s HomeKit has the edge when it comes to automation and security standards. But the real battle comes down to Alexa vs. Siri—which voice-activated assistant is more useful? Now hotel chains are trying to decide for themselves.

The high-end Wynn Las Vegas resort chose Alexa last December, adding Amazon Echo devices in its suites. Now Marriott International is trying to decide between Amazon and Apple, according to a Bloomberg report. The JW Marriott in San Antonio, Texas has been testing Amazon Alexa-integrated devices since October as an operator of sorts—the conduit to room service and housekeeping.

A group of hackers is threatening to wipe data from millions of Apple devices in two weeks if the company doesn’t pay them $150,000.

The group, which calls itself Turkish Crime Family, claims to have login credentials for more than 627 million icloud.com, me.com and mac.com email addresses. These are email domains that Apple has allowed for users creating iCloud accounts over the years.

Even though the Turkish Crime Family hasn't been in the media spotlight before, its members claim that they've been involved in selling stolen online databases in private circles for the past few years.

The group said via email that it has had a database of about 519 million iCloud credentials for some time, but did not attempt to sell it until now. The interest for such accounts on the black market has been low due to security measures Apple has put in place in recent years, it said.

Today I Found Out:

You probably already knew that Disney has a habit of taking dark, twisted children’s fairy tales and turning them into sickeningly sweet happily-ever-afters.

The 1940 version of Pinocchio is no exception. The movie is based on a story that appeared as a serial in a newspaper called The Adventures of Pinocchio, written in 1881 and 1882 by Carlo Collodi. Jiminy Cricket appears as the Talking Cricket in the book, and does not play as prominent of a role.

The Disneyfication of many of our favourite childhood stories might be a good thing. If you read many of the original stories of so much of what Disney has shown us, you’ll find they are not only significantly different but, in many cases, really

As more apps move to a subscription model, Setapp offers a “Netflix for Mac apps” experience that could be the way forward. One subscription with one monthly fee to get access to every app you need and also discover new ones, all curated so you only get the best options for the task at hand. Currently offering 69 apps (normally worth $2,227.29), you can use all of them through Setapp, free for the first month and $9.99/month after.

Even if you use just a few of the included apps often and the others when the need arises, the service makes a whole lot of sense versus subscribing to each individually or buying outright for what might be a one-time use. And you’ll never have to worry about updates as you get the latest and new apps as they’re added. There are also no ads or in-app purchases in Setapp. Here’s how it works:

Hackers identifying themselves as the “Turkish Crime Family” claim to have access to millions of iCloud accounts and are threatening to remotely wipe victims’ devices unless Apple pays them a ransom, Motherboard reports. The hackers have demanded either $100,000 worth of iTunes gift cards or $75,000 in Bitcoin or Ethereum to delete the data they claim to have stolen. One hacker provided unverified screenshots of email exchanges with…

Opinion: The new low-cost iPad is further evidence...

If anyone had asked you to describe Apple’s pricing strategy in a sentence, this would – until recently – have been extremely easy to do. Apple aims to sell premium products at high margins to upmarket demographics. The company had shown almost no interest in more affordable products pitched to those on tighter budgets.

But Apple has long recognized that you need a way of building your long-term customer base, and one good way to do that is to get them when they’re young. Apple has made considerable efforts over the years to get its computers into schools and colleges, and to make them more affordable to students through its education discount.

The MacBook Air line too has been priced at a level where it is just about affordable for those who would otherwise buy cheaper Windows laptops – again, in no small part because Apple wants to attract younger buyers whose lifetime value to the company will be substantial....

Marriott likely to decide on Apple Siri or Amazon...




Marriott is currently testing both Apple's Siri and Amazon's Alexa at an Aloft hotel in Boston to gauge which assistant, if either, might be best for letting guests control their rooms through voice commands, a report said on Wednesday.

Marriott testing Siri and Alexa to decide which will...

Bloomberg:

Amazon.com Inc.’s battle with Apple Inc. over digital assistants is moving to a new venue: hotel rooms, where Alexa and Siri are both vying to be the voice-controlled platform of choice for travelers.

Marriott International Inc., the world’s biggest lodging company, is testing devices from the two tech giants at its Aloft hotel in Boston’s Seaport district to determine which is best to let guests turn on lights, close drapes, control room temperature and change television channels via voice command. In December, Wynn Resorts Ltd. became the first hotel company to install Alexa-powered Echo devices, starting with suites at its flagship Wynn Las Vegas property.

This is a fascinating business conflict. Let’s say Marriott chooses Alexa and Hilton chooses Siri. Will Apple folks shift their staying habits, choosing to stay at a Siri friendly hotel? Is this forced choice good business? Is there a way to support both? I see a business opportunity for an Echo...

If you’re planning on working on that big project on a flight to the U.S. from several airports in Muslim-dominant countries, think again because the Trump administration just banned anything larger than a smartphone in the passenger cabin. The ban restricts iPads and other tablets, Kindle ebook readers, laptops, and other larger electronic devices to checked luggage over terrorism concerns.

∞ Apple adds multiscreen movie rentals, brings back...

Mikey Campbell, writing for AppleInsider:

Introduced as part of iTunes 12.6, which is rolling out to users as of this writing, the “rent once, watch anywhere” feature lets customers watch content rentals on any iPhone or iPad running iOS 10.3 or Apple TVs running tvOS 10.2. Those operating system versions have yet to move out of beta, suggesting a launch in the next few days.

Prior to the change, rented movies were largely relegated to the device on which they were purchased. For example, a film rented on an iPad or Apple TV could not be transported to iPhone, or vice versa.

Huzzah. The one rental, one device model was painfully archaic. Long overdue.

Kindle for iOS finally gets the “Send to Kindle”...

Sarah Perez, Tech Crunch:

Amazon has quietly rolled out the “Send to Kindle” feature to its Kindle for iOS application that allows you to save to the app articles and documents found on the web. That means your Kindle device or app can replace your preferred “read it later” application — like Pocket or Instapaper, for example — apps where regular web readers often store the longer news articles, features or profiles they want to dig into at a later date.

Not sure of the impact of this move. I use the Kindle app to read books. And that’s it. Not sure the ability to “Send to Kindle” will even get an experimental look. Where’s the value? I can share everything to an app designed from the ground up for article or PDF reading. Why shift that workflow to run through Kindle?

Apple’s new Clips app, and its potential as a Snap...

Nick Heer, Pixel Envy:

I’m not convinced, though, that Clips is a serious competitor. I think it’s a perfectly fine app; the Live Titles feature — which makes onscreen captions based on what’s being said — is especially cool. But Clips is separate from Messages, so there are more steps between starting to capture a moment and showing it off.

Time will tell if Clips gains traction. One thing Apple has done is add more importance to Messages, complementing the addition of stickers and the Messages app store.

Apple’s drops AIDS charity branding for its red...

Jon Russell, TechCrunch:

The (PRODUCT)RED Special Edition iPhone 7 is the first time that Apple has supported the charity through its flagship phone, — previous (PRODUCT)RED editions have included Beats headphones and Apple accessories — so it is sure to heighten international awareness and generate additional funds since each purchase includes a contribution to the charity. The limited edition iPhone will go up for sale in over 40 parts of the world starting this Friday, but one market where the charitable tie-in will go unnoticed is China, the world’s largest country based on population.

Despite the potential for sales in China — where iPhones are status symbols, and a unique color can make a limited edition release particularly desirable — the red iPhone is not being promoted using the (PRODUCT)RED branding.

And:

Apple, which has been caught in the political crosshairs in China over its purported use of location data and President Trump’s aggressive...

Marriott pits Apple’s Siri again Amazons Alexa

Marriott International Inc., the world’s biggest lodging company, is pitting Amazon’s Alexa against Apple’s Siri to be the voice-controlled platform of choice in its hotels, reports Bloomberg.

The goal is to offer guests a virtual “hotel butler” that lets them access and manage systems such as heating, cooling, lighting and entertainment by speaking a request at home or using a smartphone. Marriott expects to decide whether to adopt Siri or Alexa for one or more of its chains as early as mid-year.

“Probably by the end of the first half of this year, we’ll have a pretty good indication of where we’re headed,” Toni Stoeckl — who oversees the Aloft, Element, AC and Moxy chains as global brand leader for lifestyle brands at Marriott — told Bloomberg. “The race is still on.”

In an effort to become to be its users’ professional news feed, LinkedIn has launched a new feature aimed at providing a broad set of perspectives on relevant business news.

A new Trending Storylines feature will show users a set of curated feeds based on key news of the day. For example, a recent storyline rounded up all of the Apple product announcements from Tuesday morning. The storylines open with a quick summary of the news, followed by a “must-read” story that LinkedIn has picked out as a good summary.

After that, the Storyline continues with other posts from its users, focused on providing other angles on the news along with additional context. Users can like, comment on or share those posts if they want to.

If looking at the fourth quarter alone, the new iPhone 7 was the 2016 best-seller, followed by iPhone 7 Plus, based on research from the group’s Smartphone Shipment Database, which tracks quarterly shipment data for more than 350 smartphone models. IHS Markit says Apple again has demonstrated that its new iPhones integrate enough innovations and new features to drive sales and remain successful in the market.

The event will show attendees how to enhance the value of using Apple products, related unique technology offerings, and useful tips for making your entire Apple-using experience more effective, according to Paul Kent, conference co-founder and long-time general manager of the Macworld Exp.

“There needs to be a conversation among ecosystem stakeholders about what it means to thrive as an Apple-using organization, and that starts with understanding not only what Apple is doing, but also how they lead or iterate in various tech sectors,” he says. “Apple Market Forum will host that conversation."

Attendees will come away with a better understanding of how Apple measures up in a variety of sectors, and be better informed to map a path for success with Apple...

Apple announces updated iPad Air, iPad mini units,...

The new iPads were announced today.

And it looks like there’s some good stuff coming your way at a decent price.

Apple has bolstered the low end of its iPad lineup and discontinued the iPad Air 2. In its place is a new model that looks exactly the same, with a 9.7-inch retina screen, Touch ID, 32GB or 128GB of storage, and the same color choices (silver, gold, and space gray). The tablet sports an A9 processor identical to the one found in the iPhone 6s and the usual 10-hour battery. That’s a relatively small upgrade over the 8X chip that was in the iPad Air 2, but the price for the entry-level iPad has dropped from $399 to $299, which was once the price of the iPad mini.

For an additional $100, you can quadruple the storage to 128GB. As always, the cellular version of the iPad retails for another $130. The new entry-level iPad doesn’t feature the Smart Connector or Apple Pencil support, but there’s still some nifty stuff there.

Apple announces red iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus

The red iPhone 7 arrived today.

For the first time, the handset is now available in red. The new Product (RED) iPhone features a red aluminum finish, and is launching as part of Apple’s partnership with (RED).

Apple’s partnership with (RED) involves highlighting the AIDS fundraising campaign with red-themed designs for products and apps. Apple recently turned its App Store and associated top apps the color red for the world AIDS day.

Apple’s last color change for the iPhone introduced a glossy jet black finish for the iPhone 7. Prior to that, the company offered a rose gold option with the iPhone 6S handset. The red iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus handsets will be available on Friday, March 24th, will be available in 128GB and 256GB capacities and retail at price points starting at $749.

iTunes 12.6 out the door, now includes “rent once,...

This could come in handy.

Apple on Tuesday released iTunes 12.6, complete with a new “rent once, watch anywhere” movie rental and playback feature.

The new addition, according to Apple, allows you to rent a movie on one device and watch it on another device.

Previously, it was possible to rent from iPhone, for example, then be restricted to that device to finish playback.

The new ‘watch anywhere’ feature for rentals appears to require iOS 10.3 and tvOS 10.2 however, although iOS is currently in developer and public beta and tvOS is only available in developer beta previews. Both software updates are likely coming soon for all users based on previous beta cycles as well as this iTunes release.

Apple still enforces a time limit on watching rental movies.

iTunes 12.6 requires Mac OS X 10.9.5 or later to run and can be downloaded and installed from the Mac App Store.

If you’ve tried the new version and have any feedback to offer,...

By Aaron Lee

If you have more than one Mac, you need to check out ChronoSync from Econ Technologies. The $40 utility offers a way to synchronize or backup files and folders. And if you use ChronoSync, you'll also want to check out ChronoAgent, a $15 utility that's recently been revved to version 1.5.

ChronoSync runs on the source Mac and ChronoAgent runs on the destination Mac giving you a direct connection between the two (both work with Mac OS X 10.8 or later). With ChronoSync on your Mac, you can synchronize, backup, and create bootable backups. ChronoSync can synchronize or backup to anything you can connect to your Mac. Add ChronoAgent to a destination Mac to give yourself a direct connection between two Macs for safer, faster, and more reliable syncs and backups.

You can turn ChronoAgent on or off and update ChronoAgent directly, all from the menu bar...
