This May be The 4K UHD Apple TV We’ve Been Waiting...

An Apple filing with the FCC looks very much like it might be a new 4K UHD, 5th generation Apple TV just in time for the December holiday period.  It wouldn’t be a stretch to think that the old 4th generation Apple TV from October 2015 had been delayed. And now we may be getting what we really wanted all along just one year later.

External Link: 500 Million Yahoo Accounts Stolen

Yahoo has announced that information associated with at least 500 million user accounts has been stolen by what the company believes is a state-sponsored actor. If you have a Yahoo account, you should change your password immediately and enable two-step verification. In addition, if you use Yahoo as your primary email provider, you should change the passwords for any online account tied to your Yahoo email address, since the thieves could have used password resets to gain access to those accounts as well. More so than any other recent example, this breach shows the importance of using a password manager like 1Password or LastPass to create and enter a separate strong random password for every site.

Fix your headphone dongles with iOS 10.0.2

Enlarge

Apple released iOS 10.0.2 to the general public today, the first update for iOS 10 since it was released last week (10.0.1, not 10.0, was the version number of the first public build).

The update's main fix is for the Lightning-to-3.5mm dongle that ships with the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. Headsets plugged into the dongle could become unresponsive if plugged into an idle phone for more than five or so minutes. Getting the headset and any volume or playback controls to work again required unplugging the dongle and plugging it back in. With today's update, that should...

Well, I never! iOS 10's voicemail transcription...

Anyone who has looked at automatically-generated subtitles on YouTube can tell you that asking a computer to describe what a human says can lead to hilarious results. Now, Apple has brought that issue to iOS 10 with support for transcribing voicemails.

It’s a cool feature that makes it easy to know what your Aunt Matilda said about the gastrointestinal problems her dog is having, without actually having to listen to a three-minute-long, blow-by-blow description. But be careful about trusting it—or reading the transcriptions around sensitive eyes.

I learned that the hard way Thursday when someone left me a message about a reorder special on a wine club shipment. Except my iPhone didn’t hear it that way, proudly telling me about “wearing your c**k s**t.”

Apple Is Getting Ready To Take On Google and Amazon...

An anonymous reader writes: Siri may soon be making the jump from your pocket to your end table. Apple has been working on a standalone product to control internet-of-things devices for a while, but a new report from Bloomberg suggests that the company has moved the project from a research phase to prototyping. It would theoretically be pitted against other smart-home devices, including Amazon's sleeper hit, the Echo, and Google's forthcoming Home Hub. According to the report, Apple's device would be controlled using its Siri voice assistant technology. It would be able to perform the same functions that it can complete now on iPhones, Macs, and other Apple products, such as being able to tell you when the San Francisco Giants are next playing, or possibly send a poorly transcribed text message. The device would also be able to control other internet-connected devices in the home, such as lights, door locks, and web-enabled appliances, as Google and Amazon's products can. It would...

Samsung Galaxy Note emits smoke, sparks during flight

This one is supposedly a Note 2, but the exact model wasn’t confirmed. The airlines should make all Samsung users fly on the same, unmanned plane for the safety of the rest of us.

Branding Brand: Galaxy Note7 recall dents consumer...

The Galaxy Note7 recall put a dent in Samsung consumer confidence, with 34% of current customers saying they won't buy another smartphone from the brand, according to Branding Brand, a mobile e-commerce platform. Of these customers, 81% have always owned a Samsung or Android smartphone.

Most Samsung owners who say they are ready to switch will choose another Android phone (57%), but many will move to an iPhone (34%). Of current Samsung owners, 21% were previously iPhone owners. 

Following the September 15 U.S. recall of the Galaxy Note7 — due to concerns over faulty batteries that may explode in these devices — Branding Brand surveyed 1,000 Samsung smartphone customers to understand consumer confidence and loyalty with the brand. Of the Samsung customers that will stay loyal to the brand, 77% say it's because they don't want to learn a new phone. Other reasons Samsung customers cited for staying loyal with the...

Infibeam — an Indian internet and e-commerce conglomerate involved in online retailing, e-commerce software and internet services — will be another online partner.

However, according to BGR, the scope of Apple’s partnership with Flipkart and Infibeam differs in terms of the product catalog they will sell. According to what Apple is calling “Authorised Resellers for Internet or catalogue sales” in India, Flipkart will sell across all categories which...

Jack Marshall, writing for The Wall Street Journal:

Apple Inc. and Google made tweaks to their popular mobile web browsers recently to enable video content to play automatically in web pages, provided audio is muted.

The changes could result in a boost in mobile video consumption for online publishers if they allow their videos to play automatically, and it could unlock new revenue opportunities as a result.

For marketers, the tweaks will enable them to automatically play video content when potential customers visit their websites.

Autoplay means you consume your data plan simply by visiting a site. Some sites hide the video, making it invisible, and others place the video at the bottom of an article, ensuring you’ll need to scroll through the entire article to get to that elusive pause button.

It’s unclear how consumers will react to having videos play automatically on mobile webpages. Some industry observers suggest Facebook’s introduction of...

Apple Watch Diary: Transforming the user-interface...

Apple used the word ‘courage’ recently to describe its decision to remove the headphone socket from the iPhone 7, and much fun was poked at the company by those who missed the reference. But what I personally found far more courageous was Apple effectively admitting that it got the original Apple Watch user-interface badly wrong, and completely revamping it in watchOS 3.

Glances never worked. They were supposed to be a fast way to see information from your favorite apps, and to go on to quickly open those apps when required. In reality, neither objective was achieved: data was slow to load, and so were the apps.

And the side-button for immediate access to contacts was simply the waste of a button. Using the Watch Dick Tracy-style for phone calls was never more than a novelty, and sending scribbles and the like to contacts was even more of a gimmick.

Mark Gurman, writing for Bloomberg:

Apple Inc. is pressing ahead with the development of an Echo-like smart-home device based on the Siri voice assistant, according to people familiar with the matter.

Started more than two years ago, the project has exited the research and development lab and is now in prototype testing, said the people, who asked not to be identified discussing unannounced Apple projects. Like Amazon Inc.’s Echo, the device is designed to control appliances, locks, lights and curtains via voice activation, the people said. Apple hasn’t finalized plans for the device and could still scrap the project.

There were breaths of a rumor that this device would see the light of day this year, but they faded away. I’d like to see a device like this as a living room or kitchen information anchor, well integrated with iOS and macOS. The key is to make sure only one device responds when you trigger it with “Hey, Siri”.

From Ryan’s tweet:

Stereo speakers crush battery.

1 hr playback > 10%. Possibly why Apple changed the battery life specs to “wireless”.

Interesting. Clearly, onboard speakers will always chew up more iPhone battery than wireless headphones.

Why? The iPhone speakers are consuming the onboard battery, while the wireless headphones draw from their own batteries, not counting against the battery life measurement for the iPhone itself. There is a nominal drain for Bluetooth communication, but that’s not nearly as big a drain as driving...

∞ Still a walled garden, but with more doors

Dieter Bohn, writing for The Verge:

iOS 10 moves some of your stuff around a little and makes other stuff look a little different, but fundamentally it acts very much like what you’re used to underneath those new notification bubbles and 3D Touch gimmicks.

But layered underneath those cosmetic changes are some features that push your apps even further, beyond just their icons, into various corners of the operating system. It’s easy to look down your nose at Widgets and iMessage stickers, but when they’re combined with extensions, you begin to see a system where you have access to information from ESPN, Weather, Uber, and much more, all without opening those apps at all. It’s like Android’s widgets, but with a developer ecosystem that might actually be...

Reuters: Japan’s antitrust watchdog considers action...

Yoshiyasu Shida , writing for Reuters:

Japanese regulators are considering taking action against Apple Inc over possible antitrust violations that may have helped it dominate the nation’s smartphone sales, government sources said, a move that could hit the company’s profit margins in one of its most profitable markets.

In a report published last month, Japan’s Fair Trade Commission (FTC) said that NTT Docomo, KDDI Corp and Softbank Group were refusing to sell older surplus iPhone models to third party retailers, thereby hobbling smaller competitors.

This seems more about resellers than Apple. But:

Apple was not named in that report, but two senior government sources told Reuters that regulators were also focusing on Apple’s supply agreements with all three carriers.

Under those deals, surplus stock of older iPhones is kept out of the market and sent to overseas markets, such as Hong Kong, according to industry sources.

It’s all so tawdry....

Rumor: Apple moving ahead with an Amazon Echo-like...

Apple is moving ahead with the development of an Echo-like smart-home device based on the Siri voice assistant, reports Bloomberg, quoting unnamed “people familiar with the matter.”

The project has exited the research and development lab and is now in prototype testing, the article adds. Bloomberg says that, like Amazon’s Echo, the device is designed to control appliances, locks, lights and curtains via voice activation, the people said. However, “Apple hasn’t finalized plans for the device and could still scrap the project,” the article says.

These rumors aren’t new. In May it was reported that Apple is working on "an Amazon Echo-like device with a speaker and microphone that people can use to...

Pyle Audio takes on home automation with Smart Robot...

One of the few home automation product categories that I find really useful is home robotics, particularly with robot vacuum cleaners. I've owned robot vacuums since the days of the first Roombas, and they're perfect for tidying up rooms while getting other work done. Pyle Audio is moving into this space today with the new $289.99 Smart Robot Vacuum with Built-in Camera, which features not only six different cleaning modes, but an HD camera that can show you -- via an iPhone app -- what just got cleaned up under that couch!

As a robot vacuum owner, I can see a lot to like about Pyle's Smart Robot Vacuum. There are twin side brushes that are quite long, perfect for getting into corners that most other robot vacuums leave untouched. At 3.4 inches tall, the Smart Robot Vacuum can squeak under a lot of beds, couches and chairs that would block competing robots.

The six cleaning modes represent a spectrum of ways that...

Japanese regulators are considering taking action against Apple over possible antitrust violations that may have helped it dominate the nation's smartphone sales, a move that could hit the company's margins in one of its most profitable markets.

Japan's Fair Trade Commission said that NTT Docomo, KDDI Corp and Softbank were refusing to sell older surplus iPhone models to third party retailers due to supply agreements, thereby hobbling smaller competitors. This is the latest ding against Apple in Japan.

Last week Reuters reported that Apple’s iTunes unit in Japan was ordered to pay some 12 billion yen (about $118 million) in tax by local authorities after underreporting income. The Tokyo Regional Taxation Bureau determined that the unit, which sends part of its profits earned from fees paid by Japan subscribers to another Apple unit in Ireland to...

We first heard suggestions that Apple was working on its own equivalent to Amazon’s Echo – an intelligent voice-controlled assistant in a speaker – in the run-up to WWDC back in May. A subsequent report suggested that the device would feature a camera capable of facial-recognition to identify household members and set preferences.

Little more has been heard since then, but a new Bloomberg report says that the product now exists in prototype form and has begun testing outside the lab …

Machine learning is the hip new thing and Apple wants to be as large a part of it as humanly possible.

Adding to its collection of machine learning acquisitions, following a buyout of Perceptio at the end of 2015 and Turi just a few months ago, Apple has now acquired an India/US-based machine learning team, Tuplejump.

While Apple has yet to confirm the purchase and offered the standard line about occasionally buying other outfits without discussing its purposes or plans, the company offered the previous description of itself on its web site a while back:

A few years ago people realised that the volume of data that businesses generate was becoming unwieldy. A new set of technologies to handle this huge amounts of data cropped up. We were one of the early...

Reuters reports that Japanese regulators are considering taking action against Apple for possible antitrust violations. Three Japanese carriers are the main focus of the investigation, but it appears that Apple may also be implicated.

Japan’s Fair Trade Commission (FTC) said that NTT Docomo, KDDI Corp and Softbank Group were refusing to sell older surplus iPhone models to third party retailers, thereby hobbling smaller competitors. Apple was not named in that report, but two senior government sources told Reuters that regulators were also focusing on Apple’s supply agreements with all three carriers.

It’s reported that it is Apple’s contract terms that ultimately prevents older model iPhones being made available for sale within Japan …

Yahoo confirms hack, roughly 500 million email...

In the annals of hacks and breaches, this is pretty epic.

Yahoo confirmed on Thursday data “associated with at least 500 million user accounts” have been stolen in what may be one of the largest cybersecurity breaches ever.

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.

“The account information may have included names, email addresses, telephone numbers, dates of birth, hashed passwords (the vast majority with bcrypt) and, in some cases, encrypted or unencrypted security questions and answers,” Yahoo said in a statement.

Yahoo urged uses to change both their passwords and security questions as well as review their accounts for signs of suspicious activity. The company...

It appears that the Senate is poised to quash a government shutdown threat from Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, in spite of presidential candidate Donald Trump lending his support to his former primary opponent's cause. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., on Thursday filed a continuing resolution to fund the government without any language geared toward blocking the administration's IANA transition, which Cruz had attempted to include in the bill. The Democrats still have to sign on, but the measure is expected to pass the chamber on Monday.

It may be time for Apple to get into the cellular...

Perhaps it's time for Apple to introduce its own cellular network and make plans for data only cellular towers. When Apple first introduced the first iPhone, some pundits thought our favorite tech company might do just that. 

Considering how current companies are increasing their data cost to users, and given Google's expansion into the wired Internet service business, perhaps Apple should begin using its horde of cash to purchase bandwidth and towers around the U.S. 

FaceTime has an audio-only capability, and iOS devices are consuming a huge amount of data. Such a move could be a game changer for mobile computing in this country -- possibly the world. Talk about thinking different.

In 2012, wireless industry strategist Whitey Bluestein said he thought Apple was developing such plans. After all, the company has over 250 million credit card numbers on file via iTunes, and iTunes can take mobile payments...

Enlarge / The Apple Watch Series 2 running watchOS 3. (credit: Andrew Cunningham)

One of my favorite pieces of Apple writing from the last couple years is Ben Thompson’s discussion of the Apple Watch’s introduction and how it compared to past Apple product introductions. I’m not just referring to standard Apple product events, but the events at which Apple introduces an entirely new product line to the press and its customers for the first time.

The iPod, iPhone, and iPad introductions, Thompson writes, all went to great lengths to communicate Apple’s goals for the product. And often, that part of the presentation would go on for as long as 10 or 15 minutes before the product itself was even announced or shown. Even...

How to open ANY app in macOS Sierra

macOS Sierra really doesn’t want you to run apps that weren’t purchased from the Mac App Store. Before the latest version of the Mac operating system, you could allow apps to be downloaded from the Mac App Store, identified developers, and “anywhere.” The latter option has vanished in Sierra. However, there are still two ways to do this.

First, download the app and move it to your Applications folder. Right-click on its icon and select Open. After you select Open, Sierra will frantically warn you that the app is “from an unidentified developer” and ask if you’re really dumb enough to open it (well, okay, so it asks if you really want to open it). If you do, click Open; if you don’t, click Cancel. 

There’s a second way. Download the app and move it to your Applications folder. Launch it, and you’ll get the same warning. However, you’ll only be presented with a blue “OK” button. Click it and you’re taken to the Finder. Go to System Preferences > Security & Privacy...

The company said during the keynote that it actually used sound waves to eject water from the speaker enclosure, and we can now see this happening in full slow-motion glory in a YouTube video.
