Apple co-founder’s allies take aim at Hollywood over...

The Wall Street Journal:

Four years after Steve Jobs’s death, a new movie is reopening a debate over the Apple Inc. co-founder’s legacy.

Mr. Jobs’s allies, led by his widow, Laurene Powell Jobs, say the film “Steve Jobs,” and other recent depictions, play down his accomplishments and paint Mr. Jobs as cruel and inhumane. Ms. Jobs repeatedly tried to kill the film, according to people familiar with the conversations. She lobbied, among others, Sony Pictures Entertainment, which developed the script but passed on the movie for financial reasons, and Comcast Corp.’s Universal Pictures, which is releasing the $33.5 million production on Friday.

“A whole generation is going to think of him in a different way if they see a movie that depicts him in a negative way,” said Bill Campbell, a longtime Apple board member and friend of Mr. Jobs. Mr. Campbell hasn’t seen the film.

I don’t know that I agree with Campbell on his assessment of Jobs’ legacy and whether...

All 8,400 Apollo Moon Mission photos just went online

Mother Jones:

Every photo ever taken by Apollo astronauts on moon missions is now available online, on the Project Apollo Archive’s Flickr account. That’s about 8,400 images, grouped by the roll of film they were shot on. You can finally see all the blurry images, mistakes, and unrecognized gems for yourself. The unprocessed Hasseblad photos (basically raw scans of the negatives) uploaded by the Project Apollo Archive offer a fascinating behind-the-scenes peek at the various moon missions as well as lots and lots (and lots) of photos detailing the surface of the moon.

This is one of those Flickr pages you don’t want to go to unless you have a lot of free time this afternoon.

iOS 9 bug makes several apps appear zoomed in for...

Do some apps on your iPhone 6s look as if they’re zoomed in? You’re not alone. MacRumors reported late last week that some iPhone 6s users who upgraded from an iPhone 5, 5s, or 5c report that certain apps on their phones look as if they’ve been zoomed in.

The bug gets triggered when you restore an iPhone 6s from a backup of an iPhone 5, 5s, or 5c. As a result, the edges of onscreen content appear to get clipped in a number of bundled apps, including Weather, Wallet, Watch, Calculator, and Health. (We’re assuming the fact that this bug affects all the “W” apps is a mere coincidence.)

We should be able to leave our digital goodies to...

You may not know it but when you "buy" digital content such as books, music and movies from Apple and Amazon, you're not actually buying them but renting them. As more people realize this, it's unlikely they'll reconsider making physical purchases instead of digital ones. But this needs to change. 

Apple and Amazon grant “nontransferable” rights to use content. In other words, when you buy digital content, you own a license to use the digital files, but you don't truly own them. I've bought lots of music and movies on iTunes. However, unless the law changes I can't give bequeath them to my kids.

That stinks.

As noted in a 2012 Wall Street Journal article, someone who owns 10,000 hardcover books and the same number of vinyl records could leave them to descendants. However, legal experts say passing on iTunes and Kindle libraries would be much more complicated.

The Apple CEO famously wrote earlier this year about being gay, making Cook the first chief executive of a Fortune 500 company to openly come out. In the essay in which he first publicly acknowledged his sexuality, Cook shared that he felt it was more important to help other people facing discrimination for being gay than it was to protect his private life.

On a regular basis, Apple World Today posts a short list of notable new apps or app updates that have been released. They may not necessarily be new, but they're popular and deserve mention. Here are today's picks for iOS and Mac OS X:

MojoKid writes: Apple's iPhone 6s and 6s Plus were two of the most highly anticipated smartphones to launch so far this year. The excitement surrounding Apple's new refresh cycle flagships was so great that Apple reported record first weekend sales, with 13 million devices finding their way to customers. However, it appears that some of those customers are having a puzzling issue with their brand new iPhones. Owners are reporting that their phones are turning off randomly when left alone — even when the smartphones have sufficient battery remaining. "New Phone 6s 128GB turned off for no reason the last two nights," wrote Joachim Frey in an Apple discussion thread. "In the morning you then have to push the power-on button for a long time to get it started."

Building an artificial brain

The first project is to build an artificial brain from scratch that can pass a high school science test. It sounds simple enough, but trying to teach a machine not only to respond but also to reason is one of the hardest software-engineering endeavors attempted — far more complex than building his former company’s breakthrough Windows operating system, said to have 50 million lines of code.

The second project aims to understand intelligence by coming at it from the opposite direction — by starting with nature and deconstructing and analyzing the pieces. It’s an attempt to reverse-engineer the human brain by slicing it up — literally — modeling it and running simulations.

How Steve Jobs Outsmarted Carly Fiorina writes: Carly Fiorina likes to boast about her friendship with Apple founder Steve Jobs but Fortune Magazine reports that it turns out Carly may have outfoxed of by Apple's late leader. In January 2004, Steve Jobs and Carly Fiorina cut a deal where HP could slap its name on Apple's wildly successful iPod and sell it through HP retail channels but HP still managed to botch things up. The MP3 player worked just like a regular iPod, but it had HP's logo on the back and in return HP agreed to continue pre-loading iTunes onto its PCs. According to Steven Levy soon after the deal with HP was inked, Apple upgraded the iPod, making HP's version outdated and because of Fiorina's deal HP was banned from selling its own music player until August 2006. "This was a highly strategic move to block HP/Compaq from installing Windows Media Store on their PCs," says one Apple source. "We wanted iTunes Music store to be a definitive winner. Steve only did this deal because of that."...

External Link: Amazon to Stop Selling Apple TV and...

The TV platform battles are heating up, with the latest salvo fired by Amazon, which will stop selling the Apple TV and Google’s Chromecast by the end of the month, ostensibly because they don’t “interact well” with Amazon Prime Video. That explanation falls somewhat flat given that the upcoming fourth-generation Apple TV will allow independent apps, and Amazon could presumably have created a Prime Video app (unless, of course, Apple made doing so infeasible for some reason, which is also entirely possible). The move will probably hurt Chromecast sales more than Apple TV sales, due to Apple’s strong retail presence. In the end, this is just tech giants playing hardball with one another — Amazon isn’t sufficiently dominant for there to be any antitrust issues at play.

Samsung cheats on TV energy efficiency tests

The European Commission is probing whether Samsung televisions’ sensed when they were being tested for energy efficiency and changed their power consumption to get better ratings than they deserved.

Samsung admits that its TVs radically changed their power-consumption during testing, but say that the low-power mode was inadvertently triggered by the tests, and was meant to be an automatic power-saving feature.

Sure it was.

In an effort to strengthen Siri’s natural language conversation abilities, Apple has acquired a UK-based firm called VocalIQ. Business Weekly was first to report the acquisition today and Apple confirmed the purchase to The Financial Times with the usual boilerplate statement: “Apple buys smaller technology companies from time to time, and we generally do not discuss our purpose or plans.”

AT&T has called out two of its competitors, Sprint and T-Mobile, over their decision to offer Wi-Fi calling support on smartphones without first getting proper authorization from the Federal Communications Commission in a letter to that organization’s chairman.

According to AT&T, the FCC has been too slow in issuing a waiver that would allow the company to bypass certain requirements for hard-of-hearing users—a move that’s necessary for Wi-Fi calling to work.

Namely, AT&T is looking to offer Wi-Fi calling without support for teletypewriter, or TTY, devices, which “do not operate...

An app bundler is reportedly not paying developers. According to MacNN, the bundler who is scamming them runs the deals on bundled apps under the names of BundleCult and MacBundler, among others. 

Logan Ryan from Mariner Software tells MacNN that he can "definitely say, with 100 percent certainty, that Bundlecult is a fraud. We did not receive any payment on a bundle last year, even after repeated attempts were made to resolve the matter." 

Charlie Monroe, the developer of movie cataloging app Rottenwood, told the publication: "I supplied licenses to the guy, everything. Never heard back from him, never got a response to any of my emails after the sale."

On Thursday, Amazon distributed an email to marketplace sellers informing them that the company plans to stop selling some streaming video devices that compete with its Fire TV and Fire TV Stick. The company will no longer offer Google’s Chromecast or Apple’s Apple TV for sale in its online store.

The email stated that Amazon plans to disallow new listings for the product and remove existing inventory on October 29. As a reason for the removal, Amazon is citing compatibility with its Prime Video streaming service, which is not available on devices from Google and Apple.

iPhone 6s Plus: Living with Live Photos

Linked to this still iPhone 6s Plus photo are both motion and audio that further capture the moment

Live Photos aren’t perfect. The video shot in a Live Photo is a mediocre 12 frames per second, compared to the 30fps iPhones generally capture. Low-light photos are noticeably less vibrant when Live Photos are enabled. Shoot a Live Photo in the wrong orientation then rotate it, and you’ll revert back to a standard photo. Sharing Live Photos is fairly fragmented by Apple standards, even on Macs running the latest versions of OS X El Capitan. And it’s not easy to frame the perfect Live Photo; great ones tend to happen by chance, not technique.

But despite obvious day one omissions in the Live Photo...

Retail chains are gearing up for the holiday shopping bonanza by stocking all the gear you’ll want to gift your loved ones (or buy for yourself). That includes the Apple Watch, which came out in April but is only now starting to pop up on store shelves. Target is the latest to start selling Apple’s smartwatch, beginning Oct. 18 online and Oct. 25 in-store.

The retailer will carry both 38mm and 42mm versions of the Sport and stainless steel models in various colors, including rose gold. Altogether, Target will stock about 20 watch options, though only some will be available in its 1,800 stores. The company will sell all 20 models online.

Mini-review: Cloopband, the somewhat pricey but very...

As regular readers will know, I think wires are evil. To the extent that they are unavoidable, they should be invisible. And if they can’t be invisible, they should at least be neat.

I’ve also found you can never predict when you’re going to need a cable, so I keep one of each of the main types – Lightning, MiniUSB and MicroUSB – in each of the bags I use to carry a MacBook. I’ve tried various methods of wrapping them, from rubber bands (fiddly and they break) through velcro (collect fluff and lose their stickiness) to releasable cable-ties (neat but fiddly).

But I think I’ve finally found a solution that Just Works. Cloopbands are rubberized cable wraps with magnetic ends that can be applied and removed in a second.

Cloop suggests you semi-permanently attach the bands to your cables like so:

Two-factor authentication is a new service built directly into iOS 9 and OS X El Capitan. It uses different methods to trust devices and deliver verification codes, and offers a more streamlined user experience. The current two-step verification feature will continue to work separately for users who are already enrolled.

If you've ever wanted to use your Mac's keyboard with your iPhone or iPad, Eltima Software's Typeeto can make it happen. 

If you find that typing on the iOS devices' virtual keyboard works just fine, this app isn't for you. If you've bought a third party keyboard for your iDevice, this isn't for you. If, however, you want to use your Mac's keyboard with your iPhone or iPad, this app IS for you. 

Typeeto provides a real-time access to a full-scale Mac keyboard for easier interaction and typing on your iOS devices. You can connect as many devices as you need to your Mac and switch between them in one click, which is very convenient. 

I like the fact that no additional applications have to be installed on your device. Just launch Typeeto and start typing away. You can copy-paste text from your Mac to the device and the vice versa.

As for Yours Truly, I almost never use a keyboard with my iPhone or...

One 'spaceship' campus is not enough, so...

The current "spaceship campus" Apple is building apparently isn't enough. According to The Silicon Valley Business Journal reports that the company has secured a deal to build another spaceship campus in Sunnyvale, California.

The article says Apple has sealed a deal for Landbank Investments LLC’s planned Central & Wolfe campus — a curvaceous, 777,000-square-foot project at Central Expressway and Wolfe Road "that’s expected to look like nothing else ever attempted in Silicon Valley." Its marketing web address is (where the graphics for this article came from).

Meanwhile, construction is well underway for Apple’s first spaceship campus, and should be finished by the end of 2016. The new campus, which will supplement and not replace Apple’s current headquarters at 1 Infinite Loop, was a pet project of the late Steve Jobs. It’s a four-story, 2.8 million...

Andy Hertzfeld, one of the key designers of the original Macintosh system software, has told Re/code that the Sorkins/Boyle movie Steve Jobs “deviates from reality everywhere” but “exposes deeper truths” about the man.

It deviates from reality everywhere — almost nothing in it is like it really happened — but ultimately that doesn’t matter that much. The purpose of the film is to entertain, inspire and move the audience, not to portray reality. It is cavalier about the facts but aspires to explore and expose the deeper truths...

Could Mac OS X 10.12 -- the operating system update that will follow this fall's OS X El Capitan -- sport a 3D interface? Probably not, but a future version likely will. 

Natural human interfaces, based upon hand gestures in free space, represent the next big evolutionary jump in consumer and industrial electronics. Natural interfaces utilize advanced 3-D vision technology to interpret actions by users -- such as hand gestures or other movement-based input -- as commands for the device. 

However, unlike the mouse or the touchscreen, with which the user has to make physical contact, there's no physical device that/s touched. Rather, the TV, computer or other appliance simply observes the user and the user’s surroundings, and derives meaning from what it sees. With the same ease that an officer can direct traffic at a busy intersection with a few natural gestures, we will be able to convey our intent to our devices, Spare predicted.

Here's how to manage your iCloud storage

Recently, my lovely wife started receiving messages from her iPhone 5s telling her that she was running out of iCloud space. The fact that she has about eight bazillion photos floating around (she never deletes ANY pic) could be the reason. She hasn't learned how to manage her iCloud storage. However, she — and you, if you haven't -- should. 

You have two choices when you reach or exceed your storage limit. One: you can upgrade your iCloud storage plan or reduce the amount of storage you're using.  You can reduce your iCloud storage by choosing which apps and backups to store, and you can move or delete documents, photos, and email messages that you no longer need. (Before you delete anything, you might want to archive or make copies of your iCloud data.)

Use these steps to see how much iCloud storage is available in your account.

I've updated two Macs — a 12-inch MacBook and 27-inch iMac — to Mac OS X El Capitan without any hiccups. However, I'm always cautious so I used BeLight Software's Get Backup to clone a copy of the Macs' drives before upgrading the operating system. I'd recommend you do the same. 

Get Backup lets you use Mac OS X 10.6 or higher to clone a hard drive or solid state drive, making a backup disc that be booted up just in case there's a problem like a system crash that could result in the loss of valuable data. (Note that this can take several hours depending on the size of your Mac's drive.) However, what really sets Get Backup Pro apart from its competitors is its ability to keep files in-sync and up-to-date on two computers. More on that in a second.

Backups are compressed, reducing the size of resulting archives as much as up to 60 percent. You can archive to external devices and drives or to...
