Apple working on issue of Apple Music deleting some...

Apple issued a statement Friday acknowledging an issue of Apple Music deleting music from some subscribers’ accounts. The company said it doesn’t know what’s causing the problem, but is investigating the situation.

“In an extremely small number of cases users have reported that music files saved on their computer were removed without their permission,” Apple says. “We’re taking these reports seriously as we know how important music is to our customers and our teams are focused on identifying the cause. We have not been able to reproduce this issue, however, we’re releasing an update to iTunes early next week which includes additional safeguards. If a user experiences this issue they should contact AppleCare.”

Apple has officially acknowledged community reports of inadvertently deleted music, with users left with missing tracks in their libraries that may never be recovered, in a statement to iMore. The company says that it is pushing an iTunes update next week with ‘safeguards’ to pre-emptively target the issue but it cannot reproduce the bug as of yet in internal testing. This means the exact cause of the bug is still unknown and it is not guaranteed that the forthcoming iTunes software patch will fix the problem.

Mac Users Reporting Widespread System Freezes With...

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Mac Rumors: A large number of MacBook Pro owners running OS X El Capitan are reporting widespread system freezes since installing the 10.11.4 update to Apple's Mac OS. The problem appears to be concentrated on 13-inch Retina MacBook Pros (Early 2015) running 10.11.4. Users report that their system becomes totally unresponsive at seemingly random times, with no way to regain access to their Mac other than to force a hard reboot. The issue was initially reported by MacRumors forum member Antonnn on March 25, four days after Apple released what is the third update to the Mac OS. In Antonnn's case, the freezes have been occurring "about once a week," first when browsing in Safari, but then also during the use of other Mac apps, including Adobe Photoshop and several third-party browsers. The freeze seems to affect not only the screen and mouse cursor but also the Mac's Force Touch trackpad, which completely loses feedback. Apple Support is...

External Link: The Right to Bear… Encryption?

The Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution is a favorite of gun owners, but could it also provide a constitutional basis for a right to encryption? That’s not as kooky as it sounds. As Motherboard’s Susan McGregor explains, the United States government has long considered encryption to be “munitions,” as was the case for Philip Zimmermann, developer of the PGP cryptographic software, when he was detained at Dulles International Airport in 1994. But if the Second Amendment guarantees Americans the right to own firearms, it might also support our right to use encryption. However, this line of reasoning opens up a family-size can of worms. For instance, could convicted felons be barred from using encryption? Furthermore, many privacy advocates may not be thrilled to find themselves on the same side of the table as the gun lobby.

Tests showed it extended laptop battery life by up to 50 percent against Google Chrome, the company said. The browser will suggest that users enable the power-saving mode when their laptop battery has 20 percent of capacity left. Clicking on the battery icon after a laptop is disconnected from its power cable activates it. "To some degree, this is about allowing savvy browser power users to kick the tires," analyst Al Hilwa said.

The market is expected to grow at an “impressive” compound annual growth rate of 18.3% because of the rising usage of online streaming, notes the research group. Users have started adopting pay TV and OTT (over-the-top) solutions for streaming videos.

Didi received $1 billion investment from Apple

Didi Chuxing announced on May 13 that Apple has invested $1 billion in the Chinese car hailing company. Didi claims the investment will see Apple involved in both its technology and product strategies, but further details about this have been scarce.

For Apple, the investment in Didi highlights the strategic importance of China and the services segment for Apple’s future strategy, according to Jack Kent, director, Operators & Mobile Media at IHS Technology. The past quarter’s results show that Apple’s iPhone business is slowing and expansion in China had been one of its main growth drivers in recent years. 

As its hardware business has slowed, Apple has been keen to drive growth in its services revenues. This move shows how Apple is increasingly focused on services, such as Apple Pay, App Store, Apple Music, iTunes and iCloud, says Kent.

Opinion: Apple badly needs to fix App Store search,...

We heard last month that Apple has a team of around 100 people working on revamping the search functionality in the iOS App Store. If true, it’s long overdue because App Store search is a truly terrible experience. You know it, I know it, developers know it, everyone in the world knows it – except, it had always appeared, the Apple execs in charge of it.

If Apple is actually going to fix App Store search so that it works, that’s excellent news. But one part of the report sounded distinctly less encouraging.

One of the methods that Apple is considering is paid search. Essentially, developers and companies could pay to have their app shown more prominently in search results.

That gives the impression that Apple is more focused on generating additional revenue than delivering a great user experience …

As an example, Apple points to the idea of a heating system being enabled at a particular time or when a particular temperature is met. Apple refers to a central “controller” being used to detect these factors, such as an Apple TV remote or other mobile devices. The devices being controlled are referred to as “accessories” in the filing.

The Hi-Res Music logo and accompanying definition, originally announced in June 2015 by the RIAA on behalf of its member labels, primarily focused on the various types of digital files and download services which met the definition’s requirements. This program, which has been adopted by nearly a dozen download services offering high-resolution music, is now being expanded to cover streaming services that utilize new technologies that meet the quality standards set out in the original Hi-Res Music definition.

Today is Friday the 13th, so I’m serving up a list of three iOS apps to “celebrate” the big day (sorry, OS X fans, but I couldn’t find any such apps at the Mac App Store).

Friday the 13th from Pocketkai is a free app that calculates all Fridays the 13th for the next 50 years. (Every year has one to three Friday’s that fall on the 13th.)

Do you really believe that Friday the 13th is unlucky? An estimated 17-21 million folks are afraid of the date. Friday the 13th — How Unlucky is It is a free app that lets you tell if the most recent Friday the 13th was lucky or unlucky for you.

A lot of folks in Canada don’t fear the day. Friday the 13th Port Dover is the largest independent gathering in Canada. Over 200,000 people get together each Friday the 13th to celebrate...

Best Friendship Quotes With Explanations

Forums: General FCS Discussion

"Friendship is the only cement that will ever hold the world together" - Woodrow Wilson

Because an incredibly long, the entire entire world ended up being obsessed with power and also the subjugation of fellow humans. Frequent enmity with the other person had led to devastating conflicts who have killed hundreds of thousands. Camaraderie may be the strategy that could undoubtedly make your community a greater location to live in. Fellow sensation for each other makes us recognize how essential it can be to coexist in serenity and are living in equilibrium.

"Friendship needs no words." - Dag Hammerskjold

The standard primary behind an authentic camaraderie is finished understanding that exists in between the folks. This strengthens during a period of efforts and small things in regards to the other individual...

Fashion Friday: the eWorld T-shirt

Over the years, I’ve collected lots of nifty T-shirts from trade shows I’ve covered — mainly the late, lamented Macworld Expos held in Boston, San Francisco, New York, Tokyo, and Paris. Over the next few weeks I’ll be “modeling” some of the items in my collection.

Today’s T-shirt is from the launch of Apple’s eWorld, an online service that Apple operated between June 1994 and March 1996. The services included email, news, and a bulletin board system (old-timers will remember those).

eWorld is from the distant past. So distant that you had to install it from a set of two floppy disks.

Apple previewed eWorld at the 1994 Macworld Conference & Expo, where they invited attendees to become beta testers for the service. On June 20, 1994, the service went into full operation. 

eWorld was based around a "town hall" metaphor where each of the service’s branches was an individual "building". Over 400 media and technology companies created information products...

Deal of the Day: Griffin BreakSafe Magnetic USB-C...

After years of making a big deal about the safety of the MagSafe power connector for the various models of MacBooks, Apple totally ignored the connector in the 12-inch MacBook design. That opened the slim laptop to being dragged to the floor if someone happened to trip over the power cord. Fortunately, Griffin Technology created the BreakSafe Magnetic USB-C Power Cable to bring back the safe breakaway capability, and you can get it for 12% off the usual price through the Apple World Today Deals Shop

The BreakSafe is usually priced at $40, but AWT readers can pick it up for just $34.99 with free shipping. For anyone who owns the 12-inch MacBook, this is inexpensive insurance! But hurry, because this...

Apple Invests $1 Billion In Uber's Chinese...

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Bloomberg: Apple Inc. invested $1 billion in Chinese ride-sharing service Didi, making one of its biggest bets on software and services and dealing a blow to Uber Technologies Inc.'s ambitions in the country. The iPhone maker will help Uber's largest rival build up a ride-sharing platform that handles more than 11 million rides a day and serves about 300 million users across China, Didi said in a statement on Friday. Executive Officer Tim Cook has highlighted higher-margin services as a growth area and suggested he would use some of its $200 billion-plus cash hoard for investments. The investment in one of China's largest online companies will allow Apple to forge alliances in its single largest market outside of the United States. Didi, incorporated as Xiaoju Kuaizhi Inc., is in the process of raising more than $2 billion at a valuation of about $25 billion, people familiar with the matter have said. It operates in 400 Chinese cities and...

Apple has invested US$1 billion in China's largest ride-hailing company, Didi Chuxing, in a move that could give it an opportunity to participate in the local company's bid to build a data-driven ride-share platform.

Didi, which is already backed by big local players like Tencent and Alibaba, said it has raised the Apple investment as a part of its latest funding round. The investment by Apple is the largest single investment Didi has ever received, it added.

Apple has been indicating that such an investment was coming for some time now, said Patrick Moorhead, president and principal analyst at Moor Insights & Strategy. The company has already said that it plans to increase its services revenue and that the Chinese market is a key component of its overall strategy going forward, Moorhead said.

Gboard

Rajan Patel, “principal engineer” for Google’s new iOS keyboard:

Say you’re texting with a friend about tomorrow’s lunch plans.
They ask you for the address. Until now it’s worked like this: You
leave your texting app. Open Search. Find the restaurant. Copy the
address. Switch back to your texts. Paste the address into a
message. And finally, hit send.

Searching and sending stuff on your phone shouldn’t be that
difficult. With Gboard, you can search and send all kinds of
things — restaurant info, flight times, news articles — right
from your keyboard. Anything you’d search on Google, you can
search with Gboard. Results appear as cards with the key
information front and center, such as the phone number, ratings
and hours. With one tap, you can send it to your friend and you
keep the conversation going.

Google Launches 'Gboard' Keyboard For iOS...

An anonymous reader writes: Google launched a new keyboard application called "Gboard" for iOS today that features Google Search built-in to the keyboard itself. In addition, it offers swipe-based typing and access to GIFs, as well as some basic features like emojis and word predictions. The "G" icon in the upper lefthand corner opens a window for you to search Google without leaving the keyboard and launching a browser or the Google app. From there you can search for things like flight times, news articles, restaurant and business listings, weather and more, and paste that information into your chat with a single tap. The information is presented in a card-style layout. "We wanted to bring the best of Google to Gboard, so you'll see Maps, Translate, image and video search, News and others," says Rajan Patel, head of the product team that developed Gboard. "Initially, Gboard will not surface any information specific to you," he added, hinting that a personalized keyboard is in the...

Report: Apple is approving apps more quickly to...

Developers who want to sell applications in any of Apple's App Stores first need to submit their software to Apple for review, a process in which actual humans examine apps to ensure they comply with Apple's guidelines. One of the problems with this method is that it takes time for apps to move through the opaque review process, meaning users can potentially be stuck with bugs for a few days if something goes wrong with an update, even if the developer submits a new build to Apple as soon as the bug is discovered.

Lately, though, that wait time has decreased. According to user-submitted data at appreviewtimes.com, the average review time for iOS apps has decreased from around a week to about two days since this time last year. The reason, according to...

Facebook’s bias Is built-in

Farhad Manjoo:

Facebook is the world’s most influential source of news.

That’s true according to every available measure of size — the billion-plus people who devour its News Feed every day, the cargo ships of profit it keeps raking in, and the tsunami of online traffic it sends to other news sites.

But Facebook has also acquired a more subtle power to shape the wider news business.

It’s scary how powerful Facebook is these days.

Uber, Lyft leave Austin

Having lost a referendum over whether they would be regulated by the local government, the ride-sharing companies Uber and Lyft followed through on their threat to effectively fire 10,000 drivers and strand thousands of customers who had come to rely on them for transportation in this hot, spread-out, car-centric city.

I love Uber and Lyft. I use both services quite often.

The high percentage of IT pros with doubts about their security systems caught Barkly CTO Jack Danahy off-guard.

Apple is promising developers they won’t have to wait over a week to see their iOS app show up in the App Store.

Apple is quickening the app review process, cutting it down from nine days down to two, in an effort to increase revenue from the App Store, according to Bloomberg. The shortened review process will also allow iOS developers to release upgrades and fix bugs faster, therefore keeping them more committed to Apple’s mobile platform. According to AppReviewTimes.com, the average approval time for the App Store submissions has dropped in the last two weeks, from 8.8 days a year ago to 1.95 days.

Apple denies report it will stop selling iTunes...

UPDATE—May 12, 2016: Apple denied this rumor in a statement to Re/code’s Peter Kafka: “Not true.” The original rumor is below.

Annual iTunes song downloads are projected to hit almost $600 million in sales in 2019. But that figure may not be big enough to keep Apple in the music-selling business.

Apple wants to phase out the sale of music downloads via the iTunes Store in two years, according to a new report by Digital Music News. With the continued decline of music downloads, Apple is foreseeing that iTunes sales will eventually sink to zero. So the company is reportedly abandoning that ship to devote more resources to Apple Music and the growing streaming market.

Apple has cut the approval time for new submissions to its App Store from more than a week to less than two days, part of a broader push to increase revenue from services including mobile applications, according to Bloomberg — citing data from AppReviewTimes.com, which analyzes user-submitted data.

While AppReviewTimes.com offers an insight into how review times fluctuate, data from the past two weeks stem from 322 reviews, which is a small proportion of the total approved in that period. It could have something to do with personnel changes. Marketing head Phil Schiller, who has long been responsible for developer relations, took charge of the App Store from Eddy Cue, Apple's senior vice president of Internet Software and Services, in December.
