The Secret History of Mac Gaming

From the Kickstarter page:

The Secret History of Mac Gaming is the story of those communities and the game developers who survived and thrived in an ecosystem that was serially ignored by the outside world. It’s a book about people who made games and people who played them — people who, on both counts, followed their hearts first and market trends second. How in spite of everything they had going against them, the people who carried the torch for Mac gaming in the ’80s, ’90s, and early 2000s showed how clever, quirky, and downright wonderful video games could be.

This looks amazing. I love the cover design. Gorgeous, and emblematic of that old school Mac look and feel. Check out the kickstarter. Hoping this meets its goals.

Steve Jobs, services, and the tail wagging the dog

Dana Blankenhorn, Yahoo! Finance:

Apple is expected to have revenue of $50.94 billion for the September quarter, which is the fourth quarter of its fiscal year, and earnings of $1.86 per share. Margins are expected to be 38%.

Without revenue from services that would not be possible.

Dana is making the case that Apple is morphing into a services company.

More from the article:

The man behind Apple’s retail stores, George Blankenship, says services are also the future of the shopping mall. In his opinion, easy shopping, fast WiFi, and delivery services will make shopping centers relevant for millennials and their Generation Z siblings, and I believe him.

Because Apple owns its own cloud data centers, it can earn maximum margins from this trend. Instead of renting the space it uses for services, it owns the space, with all the tax benefits. Steve Jobs dismissed services as the tail wagging the dog. For Tim Cook, this is the dog.

ABI Research: Apple reinforces Qualcomm's modem...

ABI Research's Teardown Service has uncovered that Apple is using a Qualcomm modem in the Apple Watch Series 3, “reinforcing Qualcomm's leadership in modem design.”

At first glance, only using a Qualcomm modem in the Watch 3 seems at odds with the modem selection used in the iPhone 7 and iPhone 8. For those, Apple chose to use Qualcomm modems to support CDMA networks and Intel modems to support most UMTS networks. 

In contrast, the cellular version of the Watch 3 doesn’t support CDMA networks, which would seemingly make Intel the potential main supplier of the modem. However, it is the smaller form factor of the Watch that effectively makes Qualcomm the obvious modem choice, says Jim Mielke, vice president at ABI Research. The high levels of integration found in the Qualcomm chip, notably for GPS and transceivers, provide significant advantages over other competing modem offerings, he adds.

"Apple's latest Watch 3 has set new standards for integration density”...

A Shazam for the art world

Gunseli Yalcinkaya, Dezeen:

Smartify launched at the Royal Academy of Arts in London last week. It has been described by its creators as “a Shazam for the art world”, because – like the app that can identify any music track – it can reveal the title and artist of thousands of artworks.

It does so by cross-referencing them with a vast database that the company is constantly updating.

I love the idea of this app. One key difference between Smartify and Shazam is that the creators/sellers do the database updating in Shazam, while Smartify does the updating themselves. While Shazam is a general purpose solution, Smartify is more collection specific, working with museums, for example, to tag all the items in a specific gallery.

Looking forward to taking it for a spin the next time I’m at MoMA. Wondering if Smartify can handle sculpture and other 3D artforms.

Dow Jones technical error spreads fake news story of...

Benjamin Mayo, 9to5Mac:

The Dow Jones newswires had a ‘technical error’ which caused the portal to report several spurious stories including several headlines claiming Google was acquiring Apple for $9 billion, and that the deal was pre-arranged with Steve Jobs in his will.

I get that a technical error caused the stories to flow, but where did they come from in the first place? It’s not like someone accidentally wrote them.

From Dow Jones:

Please disregard the headlines that ran on Dow Jones Newswires between 9:34 a.m. ET and 9:36 a.m. ET. Due to a technical error, the headlines were published. All of those headlines are being removed from the wires. We apologize for the error.

Nope. An error is the release of the stories. But the creation of those stories is something else entirely. This should not be dismissed as a simple mistake.

Developer outlines possible attack that could trick...

This might be worth watching out for.

Per developer Felix Krause, a popup technique could be used to easily trick someone into handing over their Apple ID and password on their iOS device.

The developer noted that it is incredibly easy for an iOS app maker to recreate the Apple ID password prompt. From there, the app could send that popup and subsequently log the Apple ID and password. It takes less than 30 lines of code and could seemingly be dropped in any legitimate iOS app and sneak past App Store review teams.

Krause offered the following comments:

Showing a dialog that looks just like a system popup is super easy, there is no magic or secret code involved, it’s literally the examples provided in the Apple docs, with a custom text.

I decided not to open source the actual popup code, however, note that it’s less than 30 lines of code and every iOS engineer will be able to quickly build their own phishing code.

Wells Fargo adds Apple Pay functionality to more...

You can now use Apple Pay at more than 5,000 Wells Fargo ATMs throughout the United States.

The bank announced the technology on Tuesday, wherein customers can initiate an ATM transaction by holding their smartphone or wearable device with mobile payment functionality near an NFC-enabled ATM terminal and inputting their PIN.

Supported digital wallets include Apple Pay, Android Pay, Samsung Pay, and the bank’s own Wells Fargo Wallet for Android.

Customers can also add their Wells Fargo debit car to Apple Pay, wherein they’ll be able to hold their iPhone near the ATM, enter their PIN, and complete a transaction, with no physical plastic card required.

Wells Fargo said it plans to upgrade the rest of the company’s more than 13,000 ATMs with NFC by 2019. NFC-enabled terminals are marked with the universal contactless card symbol.

Apple is granted a patent for an ambidextrous mouse

Apple has been granted a patent (number 9,785,258) for an ambidextrous mouse configured for both left and right handed use with a Mac. 

The mouse may include right handed buttons on the front side of the mouse and left handed buttons on the back side of the mouse. The user may change the handedness of the mouse by rotating the mouse about a vertical axis of the mouse such that the left hand can use the left hand buttons and the right hand can use the right hand buttons. The mouse may include a handedness selection system for configuring the mouse for right handed or left handed use even though the mouse has the capability for both right and left hands.

In the patent filing, Apple notes that most computer systems receive input from a mouse that typically includes a trackball or optical sensor (located at the bottom side of the mouse) for translating the motion of the users hand into signals that the computer system can use. The mouse also conventionally includes one or...

Fluance’s Fi50 Bluetooth Speaker is a wireless audio solution that blends elegance with excellent sound in a reasonably priced package (now $199.99, down from the original price of $299.99).

Some wireless speaker systems feel and sound cheap with their plastic speaker enclosures. Not so the Fi50 cabinet, which is hand-made with engineered MDF wood to suppress resonance and distortion for accurate response, increased warmth and an overall more natural sound. Other premium components include dual full-range 5-inch woven woofers, high-end tweeters and a powerful 40 watt amplifier.

The result — thanks also to Fluande’s AptX enhanced audio technology — is clean, undistorted bass, a clear midrange, and transparent natural highs. It’s all driven by a 40-watt amplifier, which delivers a truly impressive frequency response of 40Hz to 20kHz

How to organize photos in macOS High Sierra

One of the patents, from Sony, covers the ring silencing feature on cellphones, and was filed in 2001 with a 1994 priority date. Two Nokia patents cover silent alarms, including vibrations, and were filed in 2000 and 2004. The suit is effectively a continuation of a case brought by MobileMedia.

Last September, a federal jury in Delaware hit Apple with a $3 million damages verdict after ruling that some of the company’s iPhone models infringe a MobileMedia Ideas owned patent covering incoming phone call alert sounds. MobileMedia sued Apple in 2010, claiming it infringed 14 patents for electronics...

It was inevitable that Apple would begin signing big-name talent and major franchises to its forthcoming push into original video. Inevitable from the moment it hired two respected television industry executives, Zack Van Amburg and Jamie Erlicht.

Under Eddy Cue, Apple was able to experiment with shows like Planet of the Apps and Carpool Karaoke. But Van Amburg and Erlicht spent years at Sony developing prestige, big-budget scripted programming—and they were not hired at Apple to do anything else. The only question was which big name would be the first to sign a big-money deal to develop programming specifically for Apple.

If the production quality can match this, we're totally in.


Hollywood reboots are nothing new these days. In fact, they're so common that even a reboot of an oddball cult-classic barely turns heads (Twin Peaks shows that formula can succeed, right?). And anything from the back catalogue of an iconic creator like Steven Spielberg may be continually ripe for revisiting. Just this summer, Amblin Entertainment confirmed Spielberg's involvement with a new Animaniacs series, for instance.

So at first blush, Deadline detailing today that Spielberg's Amazing Stories (an...

Netflix fends off criticism over Canada investment

Netflix Inc said on Tuesday it had received formal approval to start a C$500 million production unit in Canada and sought to quell talk that it had asked for special tax benefits for investing in its first such unit outside the United States.

I don’t understand the criticism. A company should ask for all the deals it can, including tax breaks. If a country, city, state, or province doesn’t want the business, jobs, and investment, someone else will.

This new app gives the working poor an easy way to...

Fast Company:

For minimum wage workers, a small emergency can mean financial disaster. A new app called Onward makes it easy for them to automatically set aside a few dollars each week to start an emergency fund.

An app from a new startup called Onward is designed to help low-wage workers steadily save, and also offers a line of credit with relatively low interest rates if someone needs a little extra in an emergency.

While the employer’s participation is key, this is a great way to help the working poor save a little money for the future and is definitely a better alternative than the evil “Payday Loan”

Review: Tech Armor ActivePower 6000 Mobile Power Bank

Tech Armor ActivePower 6000 Mobile Power Bank. Photo ©2017, Steven Sande

External battery packs are quite commonplace, as everybody seems to want a way to keep their devices charged when they’re away from power outlets. But there’s a dilemma with battery packs; they’re usually too large to be pocketable, ugly as sin, and may not have the amperage to quickly top off a tablet. Tech Armor’s ActivePower 6000 Mobile Power Bank (US$39.99) does away with all of the negatives and is an external battery pack worth looking at.

We’ll start with the size, both physical and in terms of power capacity. At 6000 mAh, the ActivePower 6000 has enough power to charge an iPhone 7 Plus (at 2,900 mAh) twice. As for tablets, it’s enough to supply about 3/4 of a charge to a 10.5-inch iPad Pro. Physically, the ActivePower 6000 is 4.1 x 1.87 x 1.06 inches (104mm x 47.4mm x 27mm) and...

A patent-holding company that stands to win 12.5 cents for every iPhone sold has filed a new lawsuit (PDF) against Apple.

Ironworks Patents LLC is a patent-enforcement company formed earlier this year, with no apparent business other than filing lawsuits over patents. It's a business model that's now decades old, and companies that engage in it are often derided as "patent trolls."

Yet Ironworks isn't your everyday patent enforcer. The company has inherited a patent portfolio belonging to MobileMedia Ideas LLC, which has already proven its value. MobileMedia Ideas was a kind of "...

Apple may reboot Steven Spielberg’s ‘Amazing Stories’

Apple is eyeing a reboot of Steven Spielberg’s Amazing Stories as one of its first series in its foray into original programming under Jamie Erlicht & Zack Van Amburg, heads of the newly formed worldwide video programming division, reports Deadline.

“It’s wonderful to be reunited with our colleagues Zack and Jamie in their new capacity at Apple,” said Jennifer Salke, President, NBC Entertainment, who oversees Universal TV. “We love being at the forefront of Apple’s investment in scripted programming, and can’t think of a better property than Spielberg’s beloved Amazing Stories franchise with the genius of Bryan Fuller at the helm and more exciting creative partnerships to come.”

Created by Spielberg, Amazing Stories was a fantasy, horror, and science fiction television anthology series featuring an all-star...

iOS Privacy: steal.password – Easily get the user’s...

Felix Krause:

iOS asks the user for their iTunes password for many reasons, the most common ones are recently installed iOS operating system updates, or iOS apps that are stuck during installation.

As a result, users are trained to just enter their Apple ID password whenever iOS prompts you to do so. However, those popups are not only shown on the lock screen, and the home screen, but also inside random apps, e.g. when they want to access iCloud, GameCenter or In-App-Purchases.

This could easily be abused by any app, just by showing an UIAlertController, that looks exactly like the system dialog.

Even users who know a lot about technology have a hard time detecting that those alerts are phishing attacks.

These dialog boxes pop up all the time and users who aren’t tech savvy can, will and do just type in their passwords without thinking about why they are doing

Review: Audio-Technica ATH-DSR9BT

At CES 2017, Audio-Technica announced a line of "purely digital" headphones, and many audio enthusiasts scoffed. Surely this was just more marketing speak, using "digital" as a buzzword just like other companies had slapped "HD" on nearly every product in the early 2000s. Common sense dictated that although these headphones might accept a digital signal, there must be a digital to analog conversion at some point, right? Well, the doubters were wrong — Audio-Technica's DSR headphones are actually digital-only, using a new technology that we've never seen before in a headphone. Long story short: they're the best sounding wireless headphones we've yet heard.{/exp:char_limit}
