Review: Zagg Now Cam

The new Now Cam ($80) from Zagg is one of the most peculiar products we've seen in some time. A tiny Bluetooth speaker/camera, Zagg says that Now Cam "frees you from the confines of viewing life from behind a screen." That's a bit dramatic, and whether or not that's even a problem depends on the user, but Zagg is clearly positioning Now Cam as a way to quickly take still photos and videos without the use of a phone — or the benefit of a viewfinder. Now Cam can take still photos, videos, and 6-second video clips. Pictures and videos can be taken while away from your iOS device, then transferred to your camera roll later, through the Now Cam app. A small Bluetooth speaker is also found on the front of the small Now Cam. The camera/speaker combo comes in dark or light gray, and Now Cam ships with a micro-USB cable for recharging, and three different sized lanyards.{/exp:char_limit}

Product Hunt puts the day's hottest tech trends...

Product Hunt is a popular site that serves as a launchpad for tech’s next big things. Unlike many mobile-first sites that expect people to browse on their smartphones, most of Product Hunt’s traffic comes from desktops. Those desktops are often Macs, the company said. So today, Product Hunt released a Mac app that puts the latest trends in your menu bar.

It’s an unobtrusive way to see the day’s most upvoted tech and entertainment products—everything from hot start-ups and app updates to books, podcasts, and video games. The app is denoted with a “P” icon at the top of your screen, next to other shortcuts you might have installed.

Facebook Messenger adds group voice calls

Facebook Messenger's feature improvements aren't stopping with the recent chatbot push. Now, anyone with Messenger for Android or iOS can now initiate a group voice call for up to 50 people.

The feature builds on Facebook’s group text chatting feature. Inside a group chat, you should soon see a red phone icon. Tap that button and your call will start. Once the call is ongoing, a new screen allows you to manage participants. Users should see the phone option worldwide by Thursday, Facebook messaging chief David Marcus said in a recent post on the social network.

Apple ranks second to Samsung in overall wireless...

Apple may want to ramp up its wireless charging efforts for smartphones, as Samsung currently has the edge in wireless smartphone satisfaction. Advanced technology that improves smartphone usability, such as wireless charging and fingerprint scanners, enables wireless subscribers to be more actively engaged with their device and helps increase their satisfaction, according to the “J.D. Power 2016 U.S. Wireless Smartphone Satisfaction Study—Volume 1.”

Now in its 10th year, the Wireless Smartphone Satisfaction Study measures customer satisfaction based on five factors (listed in order of importance): performance (25%); ease of operation (21%); battery (20%); physical design (19%); and features (16%). The study measures customer satisfaction with wireless original equipment manufacturers across Tier 1 wireless carriers (such as AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, and T-Mobile). Satisfaction is calculated on a 1,000-point scale.

This tool can block ransomware on Mac OS X, for now

A security researcher has created a free security tool that can detect attempts by ransomware programs to encrypt files on users' Macs and then block them before they do a lot of damage.

Called RansomWhere?, the application is the creation of Patrick Wardle, director of research and development at security firm Synack. It's meant to detect and block the encryption of files by untrusted processes.

The tool monitors users' home directories and detects when encrypted files are rapidly created inside them—a telltale sign of ransomware activity.

When such activity is detected, RansomWhere? determines the process responsible and suspends it. To limit false positives—legitimate encryption programs being detected as ransomware—the tool whitelists all applications signed by Apple and most of those that already exist on the computer when RansomWhere? is first installed.

Apple files for — and is granted — lots of patents by the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office. Many are for inventions that never see the light of day. However, you never can tell which ones will materialize in a real product, so here are today’s patent highlights: 

A newly granted patent (number 20160110027) hints at future iOS devices (and, theoretically, Macs) that could offer multi-touch input discrimination. Their touch screens would not only recognize your fingerprints and thumbprints, but also your palm, and even your cheek, patterns using a using a “patch eccentricity parameter.”

Apple says that, unlike earlier input devices, touch surfaces now becoming available are capable of simultaneously detecting multiple objects as they approach and/or contact the touch-surface, and detecting object shapes in much more detail. To take advantage of this capability, it’s necessary to measure, identify and distinguish between the many kinds of objects that...

2017 iPhone May Be a Glass Act


Apple has been developing a glass casing for a new iPhone with an AMOLED display to be unveiled in 2017, Ming-Chi Kuo, an analyst at KGI Securities, reportedly said this week in a note to investors. That would mark a return to the design of the iPhone 4 and 4s, both of which had glass cases. The use of the AMOLED screen will offset the heavier weight of a glass back for the device. No more than 40 percent of iPhones will be made with aluminum bodies once the glass device is launched, Kuo predicted.

The VERT app/hardware combo may leave you feeling a...

Do you need/want to know how high you can jump? Do you want to know enough to spend $124.99? If so, the VERT is just what you're looking for. 

It's a device worn near the waist of an athlete either by the VERT training clip or integrated within an article of clothing such as the VERT active waistband. VERT measures your jump and transmits the data to a smart phone or tablet, such as the iPhone or iPad.

To use, you'll need to charge it (two hours for the first time of use), which you can do via a USB plug that comes with the device. After it's charged, setting it up is a simple matter. Well, except for the fact that the small instruction booklet tells you to wear the VERT during "practice or game performance" and, on the very same page says that "VERT CLIP is NOT to be used during practice or game performance." 

Confusing, to say the least. However, I did wear mine while playing pick-up basketball games. If I...

GoodSync is a good back-up/syncing solution, though...

If you want to keep your files safe and in sync, GoodSync is a decent, if not great, option for doing so. Available in Mac OS X, iOS, Windows, and Android versions, it backs up and syncs music, photos, videos, email, text documents and more between desktops, laptops, servers, and external drives -- all without using cloud-based services.

GoodSync -- which costs $29.95 for a single computer license for Mac OS X (which is the version I’m reviewing here)— offers true bi-directional synchronization -- in other words, syncing flows both ways. This means changes to the files at either syncing location are mirrored at the other. Or you can do one-way syncing -- which, basically, is a back-up routine.

GoodSync's interface isn't flashy, but, once you get the hang of it, it's functional. It allows you to quit manually transferring and backing up your data. After configuring GoodSync and creating sync or backup profiles, the...

Over at Geekbench, Christina Warren noted that that 1.2 GHz configuration runs around 15 to 18 percent faster CPU performance compared to last year’s equivalent model. The notebook earned a single-core score of 2,894 and a multi-core score of 5,845, versus 2,437 single-core and 5,049 multi-core scores for the previous generation 1.2GHz model.

Also of note are early BlackMagic disk speed tests, which have seen write speeds that are up to 80 or 90 percent faster than the write speeds in the previous-generation MacBook. Read speeds are also improved.

Almost Nothing About the 'Apple Harvests Gold...

Jason Koebler, reporting for Motherboard: You may have seen a viral headline floating around over the last few days: Apple recycled $40 million worth of gold last year, which was extracted from iPhones. Almost none of what was reported is true. [...] Here is the truth: Apple paid independent recyclers to recycle old electronics -- which were almost never Apple products, by the way -- because it's required by law to do so. Far from banking $40 million on the prospect, Apple likely ended up taking an overall monetary loss. This is not because Apple is a bad actor or is hiding anything, it's simply how the industry works. All electronics manufacturers that sell products in the United States are required to do e-waste recycling under laws enacted in 25 states. The laws are different in each state, but none of them require Apple to recycle Apple products. Instead, they usually require manufacturers to recycle a certain amount of pounds of e-waste, which is linked to either their market...

Can Switzerland Become a Safe Haven For the World...

An anonymous reader shares an interesting article on Daily Dot which lists a number of reasons why Switzerland should be deemed as the nation for storing all of your data. The article reads: As United States and European Union regulators debate a sweeping new data-privacy agreement, Switzerland is presenting itself as a viable neutral location for storing the world's data thanks to strict privacy laws and ideal infrastructure. The Swiss constitution guarantees data privacy under Article 13. The country's laws protecting privacy are similar to those enacted by the E.U. Swiss data protections are also, in some cases, much stricter than those of the E.U., according to Nicola Benz, attorney at Swiss law firm Froriep. And since Switzerland is not part of the E.U., data stored there remains outside the reach of the union's authorities. [...] The country's tight privacy laws could make the small nation more attractive to privacy-focused start-ups. And it already has that momentum. After...

I’m old enough to have started writing on a typewriter – albeit, as a kid. I couldn’t imagine going back to one now, but there is something rather lovely about the sound and rhythm of the keys. For creative writing, I actually use an app that creates simulated typewriter sounds, simply because I find that puts me in the right mindset.

So when I spotted the Qwerkywriter on Kickstarter ages ago, I always meant to check it out. A recent post on 9to5Toys reminded me about it. From photos, I loved the look. My questions were whether it would look as good in real-life as it does in the photos, whether it would turn out to be a novelty or a serious keyboard – and whether it could possibly justify that $349 price-tag?

Podcast 504: New MacBooks and WWDC 2016 dates

Sometimes new Apple products are announced with fanfare at a fancy event. Sometimes they just get a new processor and a press release. The first MacBook got an event, and on Tuesday Apple put out a press release about the second MacBook revision, with a processor bump, a new rose gold color, and an extra hour of battery life. Glenn and Susie are a bit underwhelmed by this underwhelming development, but Glenn’s still really enjoying the first-gen MacBook he’s used all year.

Elsewhere, Apple’s encryption tussle with the government has moved to New York, and Apple filed a briefing last week pointing out the weakness of the government’s appeal. And WWDC dates were announced: June 13 to 17 in San Francisco. A lottery is on now for tickets, and hotel rooms are already expensive, so our pro tip is to consider staying in beautiful downtown Oakland and riding BART to San Francisco instead. Can’t wait!

The slim sheath measures 12.25” by 8” and is designed to mold gradually to the shape of the MacBook, providing an even closer fit over time. The Atelier Folio is available for pre-order now with shipments set to begin on May 12.

External Link: Why Apple Stinks at Services

Analyst Ben Thompson takes a hard look at Apple’s organizational structure to explain why the company excels at hardware, but performs poorly with services. Using DuPont’s shaky pivot from gunpowder to paint, Thompson illustrates why it will take a major organizational shakeup for Apple to succeed in services. With its executives indicating that they believe services are important to the future of the company, Apple may have no other choice than to create an entirely new division with a corporate structure better suited for online services, while separately maintaining the existing structure that has been so successful with hardware.

Apple to pay $24.9 million to settle Siri patent...

Apple has agreed to pay $24.9 million to a patent holding company to resolve a 5-year-old lawsuit accusing Siri of infringing one of its patents.

Apple will pay the money to Marathon Patent Group, the parent company of Texas firm Dynamic Advances, which held an exclusive license to a 2007 patent covering natural language user interfaces for enterprise databases. Marathon reported the settlement in a filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission Tuesday.

News: Apple to pay $24.9 million to settle Siri...

Apple has agreed to pay $24.9 million to a Dallas company that claims Siri’s voice technology violates one of its patents, Albany Business Review reports. The years-long case alleged Siri was developed at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in 2007, four years before Apple introduced the voice assistant with the iPhone 4s. Dallas-based Dynamic Advances licensed the patent from Rensselaer and stands to gain $5 million from Apple after dropping its…

Review: LG’s 34″ UltraWide curved monitor is great...

As someone who uses timeline-based apps such as Logic Pro X and Final Cut Pro X on a regular basis, horizontal display real estate is incredibly important to me. When it comes to editing video and audio, the bigger the monitor the better.

With the recent popularity of extra-wide 21:9 monitors, I’ve come to understand that width can make a major difference in managing timeline-based editing workflows as well. The extra horizontal real estate is also a nice option for watching movies shot with a 2.39:1 aspect ratio.

With this in mind, I’ve been looking forward to going hands-on with a 21:9 display. LG’s 34UC98 UltraWide IPS monitor is not only extremely wide at 3440 x 1440, but it’s curved as well. How does this new display fit...

The FBI has told CNN that it found no useful information on San Bernardino terrorist Syed Rizwan Farook’s iPhone, but said the lack of information actually provided some answers. At issue was an 18-minute gap during which authorities couldn’t account for the actions of Farook and his wife. The iPhone hack eliminated the possibility that the couple used the phone to engage in communication with a third party, allowing the FBI to rule out…

Chatbots land on Skype's Mac client and web app

If you’ve been dying to try out Skype bots but don't have a Windows PC, Android, or iOS device to chat on, you’re finally in luck. Skype recently rolled out bot integration to the Mac client and the service’s beta web app.

There are only six bots to try out right now, which is to be expected since this is still a preview feature. Despite the small numbers, some of the automated services are fairly useful. Give Bing News some keywords such as “Presidential election” and you get three recent headlines for that topic.

News: Web previews popping up for some Apple TV apps

Apple has started making preview pages for some Apple TV apps viewable in iTunes from a web browser, finally making it easier to share links to interesting apps with friends, or on social media. While iOS and Mac apps have been visible in iTunes web previews for years, this is a new development for tvOS — it should solve a big problem for developers trying to link to their apps from their own websites or social media pages. First spotted by Twitter…

External Link: Apple Joins Tech Giants to Call Anti-...

Senators Richard Burr (R-NC) and Diane Feinstein (D-CA) have proposed a bill that would punish companies like Apple that refuse to comply with decryption orders. Now the Reform Government Surveillance Coalition, which includes Apple, Dropbox, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, and Twitter, has published an open letter calling the proposed legislation “unworkable,” saying that it would “weaken the very defenses we need to protect us from people who want to cause economic and physical harm.” So far, there isn’t much cause for alarm, because the bill is only a draft; it’s still a long way from even reaching the Senate floor, much less becoming law. Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR) has vowed to filibuster the bill if it reaches the Senate floor.

The Reform Government Surveillance coalition — which includes Apple, Dropbox, Evernote, Facebook, Google, LinkedIn, Microsoft, and Yahoo! — have written a letter to the two Senators behind the anti-encryption Burr-Feinstein bill explaining why it’s a very bad thing.

Among its many provisions, the draft bill mandates that tech companies make all of their online data "intelligible" when presented with a court order. The bill defines intelligible as "decrypted, deciphered, decoded, demodulated, or deobfuscated" to "the Government of the United States and the government of the District of Columbia, or any commonwealth or possession of the United States, of an Indian Tribe, or of any State or political subdivision thereof.”

This bill — proposed by Sens. Richard Burr (R) of North Carolina and Dianne Feinstein (D) of California (both pictured) — would make us all less safe. t would force American companies to keep...

MIT Researchers Forge New Weapon for Code Warriors


MIT researchers have developed a fast, accurate system for identifying security flaws in Web apps written in Ruby on Rails, according to news reports published last week. In tests the researchers -- MIT Professor Daniel Jackson and Joseph Near, a postdoctoral researcher at the University of California at Berkeley -- performed on 50 popular RoR apps, they uncovered 23 previously undiscovered security flaws. What's more, the longest amount of time it took to analyze any one program was 64 seconds.

Apple has agreed to pay $24.9M to settle a long-running lawsuit alleging that Siri violated a patent owned by a New York institute and exclusively licensed to a company in Dallas. The patent predates the launch of Siri by four years.

The Albany Business Review notes that Apple was sued not by the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, which holds the patent, but by Dallas-based Dynamic Advances, which licensed it. The company reportedly receives $5M now, and the balance after meeting unspecified conditions. In return, Apple gets a license to use the patented technology for three years.

The settlement means that the patent trial, due to take place in New York next month, will no longer proceed....

Cohn & Wolfe has published its inaugural Authentic 100, an annual index of global brands ranked by consumer perception of authenticity. Among the top 10 brands are Apple (number five on the list), Disney (number one), BMW (number two), Microsoft (number three), Amazon (number four), Intel (number six), Audi (number seven), Samsung (number eight), Adidas (number nine), and Lego (number 10).

The 2016 study by the a global communications agency on authenticity defines what consumers believe are the individual attributes of authentic behavior and whether a brand displaying these attributes will affect the actions of consumers. The study identifies a large "authenticity gap" between brands and consumers, with 75 percent of nearly 12,000 consumers surveyed across 14 markets indicating that brands and companies have a credibility problem. Key findings of the study include:

An anonymous reader quotes a report from BuzzFeed: A high ranking technology official with the FBI told members of Congress Tuesday that the agency is incapable of cracking locked phones and devices on its own, even with additional resources. Amy Hess, the agency's executive assistant director for science and technology told a panel of the House Energy and Commerce Committee that encrypted communications continue to pose a challenge to the American law enforcement, and to the safety of the American public. But when asked by lawmakers to provide a practical solution beyond the FBI's talking points, she said that the cooperation of technology companies would be necessary. According to the New York Times, "The FBI defended its hiring of a third-party company to break into an iPhone used by a gunman in last year's San Bernardino, Calif., mass shooting, telling some lawmakers on Tuesday that it needed to join with partners in the rarefied world of for-profit hackers as technology...

Earlier today, Apple took wraps off of a refreshed 12-inch MacBook just over a year after the line was first introduced. While Apple is touting that this MacBook is faster and offers longer battery life than last year’s model, the company is notoriously vague when it comes to sharing under-the-hood details on its product pages. We’ve done some digging, however, and will attempt to break down all of the differences between last year’s 12-inch MacBook and this year’s upgraded model.

Apple's MacBook Refresh Draws Tepid Response


Apple on Tuesday announced a refreshed MacBook with some incremental improvements but nothing likely to dazzle even the staunchest Mac fans. The improved battery life and fanless design got the attention of Eric Smith, a senior analyst at Strategy Analytics. "Battery life is always top of mind for consumers," he said. However, he was "a little disappointed" that there has been no improvement to display resolution, as "more PC OEMs are going to 4K displays in this price tier." The MacBook starts at $1,300.

Being in San Francisco for WWDC is getting expensive. Really expensive. For many people airfare + hotel in 2016 will cost twice as much as it did in 2014: upwards of $2,000 USD. That’s more than the price of getting into the event itself (assuming you’re lucky enough to win a ticket)! Already tons of our friends have said they have to skip this year and might not be back.

But it’s OK: the iOS and Mac community isn’t limited to San Francisco once a year.

The high cost of hotels, etc. certainly isn’t Apple’s fault, but it’s nice to see some of the independent conferences come together and offer users an alternative.
