IK Multimedia’s Modo Bass

You see, traditional virtual instruments are sample-based, meaning that sound is produced by triggering recorded samples of instruments. MODO BASS isn’t a sample-based instrument, but rather a completely new technology where sound is generated by recreating the physical properties of a real instrument — everything that makes an instrument create sound is physically modeled and sound is synthesized in real time.

I’m looking forward to seeing this at NAMM in January.

Here’s some irony for you: now that Apple is apparently abandoning the AirPort Express, the AirPort Extreme, and AirPort Time Capsule, the company ranks highest in overall satisfaction among wireless router manufacturers in a new study by J.P. Power.

The report finds that overall satisfaction with wireless routers has increased by a full 24 points from 2015, and is now 847 (on a 1,000-point scale). Apple ranks highest with a score of 876, followed by ASUS (860), D-Link (856) and TP-Link (854).

While satisfaction has improved in all 10 factors, the largest increase is 30 points in ease of use (which includes the installation process). Another area related to ease of use with the product is restoration of service with minimal effort, in...

MacBook Pro Diary: Real-life use reveals a few minor...

Having got my maxed-out 15-inch 2016 MacBook Pro set up yesterday, I’ve now been using it for a total of around 12 hours – so I’m calling this one my first real-life usage impressions.

Impressions of the form factor will obviously vary depending on whether you’re coming from a pre-Retina machine – as I was – or a later one. The new machine is smaller, slimmer and sleeker either way, but the difference is of course much more dramatic from a pre-2012 model. And in my case, I’m also moving from a 17-inch machine to a 15-inch one.

For me, then, the form factor is in a completely different league. The base unit is much thinner, and the lid is almost unbelievably so. It’s also significantly lighter. I said...

IDC: global personal computer market forecast...

Worldwide personal computer (PC) shipments are forecast to decline by 6.4% year over year in 2016, according to an updated forecast from the International Data Corporation (IDC) Worldwide Quarterly PC Tracker. That doesn’t sound good, but it’s an improvement over August's projection for a decline of 7.2% in 2016. 

While IDC's outlook for 2017 remains at -2.1% year-over-year growth, the absolute volumes are slightly higher based on stronger 2016 shipments. The third quarter of 2016 (3Q16) saw a year-over-year decline in shipments of 4.6%, more than 2 percentage points ahead of expectations. 

Although factors such as the transition to Windows 10 played a role, the 3Q16 gains came largely as a result of stronger momentum in the U.S., Western Europe, and Japan, and were driven by channel build up in anticipation of component shortages in areas such as display panels...

Apple again turns (RED) to assist in the fight...

In honor of World AIDS Day, Apple is offering more ways for customers to join (RED) in its mission to create an AIDS-free generation. This is the company’s 10th year supporting the effort.

(RED)’s work addresses the disparity in access to life-saving medication in sub-Saharan Africa, which has the highest prevalence of AIDS on the planet. The money raised by (RED) funds programs that offer counseling, testing, prevention and, most crucially, the life-saving ARV medication that prevents the transmission of HIV from mothers to their unborn babies.

“The gift of life is the most important gift that anyone can give,” said Apple CEO Tim Cook in a press release. “Thanks to the vision and dedication of (RED), an AIDS-free generation is within our reach. We want to leave the world better than we found it, and that’s why our longtime partnership with (RED) remains so important to us.” 

This year, Apple customers can support the fight while playing the games they love,...

Rumor: Apple to see its best iPhone sales in 2017,...

A new report from analytical firm KGI has Apple as having its biggest iPhone sales ever come 2017. The new estimates, which cover three anticipated new models, will empower Apple growth with ‘unprecedented’ demand. KGI expects the new phones may sell between 120-150 million units in the second half of next year, eclipsing the previous sales record set by iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

The firm believes that the new form-factor premium OLED iPhone model will encourage high-end customers to upgrades their devices while the low-end 4.7-inch model will feature wireless charging, a glass chassis and attract the lower-end of the market.

KGI reiterates what the firm has said before, in that Apple will debut three new...

Apple extending iMac repair program to help cover...

If your 27-inch iMac hinge has been wonky, Apple is stepping in to cover it in some cases.

A new report has stated that ome 27-inch iMacs shipped between Dec. 2012 and July 2014 may stop adjusting properly and simply tilt forward,. People who paid to get their hinge fixed may have ended up spending $100 or more.

The affected hinges have apparently made cracking or popping sounds upon breaking. That would support a theory that plastic washers in spring mechanisms are suddenly giving way, unable to cope with the weight of the attached computer.

A repair program that covers the 2012 and 2013 model iMacs has been extended from three to five years from the original date of purchase. Users with a faulty iMac should be able to get their hinge...

Why a web browser is the wrong place to save your...

By Jeff Graber

For the average Internet user, security of passwords is often a secondary consideration, right after convenience. Most of us belong to so many different websites requiring passwords that we could never name them all, even if a gun were placed to our heads. 

Clicking that little “yes” button when our web browsers automatically ask us if we want to save our password is almost an automatic reflex reaction for some of us. But this practice is actually the worst possible method for keeping your passwords safe. Using a password management system provides infinitely more protection.

Who else has access to your computer?

All that it takes to gain access to all of your passwords is a few seconds in front of your desktop or laptop computer. If you’re in the office and walk away for a quick meeting with the boss, a colleague in the next cubicle can simply slip into our seat and access all of your secret information,...

Threat actors had found a way to embed malicious code into an image, they said. Due to a flaw in the social media infrastructure, infected images are downloaded to a user's machine, Ziakin and Barda explained.

Uber defends its business model in Europe

The ride-hailing app, which expanded into Europe five years ago, has come under attack from established taxi companies and some EU countries because it is not bound by strict local licensing and safety rules which apply to some of its competitors.

Uber’s dispute with Barcelona’s main taxi operator, which in 2014 accused it of running an illegal taxi service via its UberPOP service, is seen as a landmark case which could lead the Court of Justice of the European Union (ECJ) to label it a transport company rather than a digital service.

That is the crux of the argument—is Uber a transport or digital company? Arguments can be made for both sides. I haven’t used a taxi since Uber and Lyft started offering their service. All the legal arguments aside, the app-based services are much better, friendlier, and professional than any taxi service I’ve ever used.

How to watch Netflix, Hulu, and other streaming...

Netflix on a flight? No way, you say? The idea has seemed out of reach for years, because Netflix doesn’t let its U.S. subscribers download video for offline viewing.

However, rumors suggest customers in countries with unreliable broadband may soon get the feature. Meanwhile, in-flight Wi-Fi provider Gogo is working to upgrade the speed of its service on airplanes to support streaming video. Other competitors, including Viasat, offer fast, video-friendly service via satellite. And Amazon Prime members can download some Prime video to their mobile devices...

Boot Camp Might Damage Speakers on 2016 MacBook Pro

An anonymous reader writes:One of the things an Apple Mac can do that Windows 10 machines can't do -- at least easily and completely legally -- is run both Windows and MacOS. Interestingly, it's Apple's Boot Camp utility that makes this feat possible, which essentially enables Macs of all flavors to boot directly to Windows 10 and use the Mac as if it were a Windows machine. Usually, this is a fairly straightforward process that works well, with the resulting Boot Camp configuration doing fairly well at mimicking a Windows 10 machine with a few hardware limitations. As of the 2016 MacBook Pro machines, however, it appears that Boot Camp might be causing some serious and uncharacteristic audio issues. It appears that the new speakers running on the refreshed MacBook Pro line aren't working so well with the obsolete drivers provided in the current version of MacOS Sierra Boot Camp. Users are reporting the issue on all models of the 2016 MacBook Pro, and they are not experiencing the...

Researchers claim that only about 6 percent of U.S. homes currently have some form of home automation facilitated by iOS devices, which isn't surprising given the higher costs of these emerging technologies. Here's a look at how you can take advantage of the holiday sales to get in on the trend while on a budget.

iPhone 8 rumors: Wireless charging in 3 all-glass...

People are still lining up to snag a brand new iPhone 7, but that won’t stop anyone from speculating about next year’s iPhone. Why so early? Well, 2017 marks the iPhone’s 10th birthday, so Apple is reportedly gearing up to make its anniversary edition extra special.

We’ll keep track of the latest rumors and how plausible they are, and we’ll put them in one spot (this one!) so you can bookmark this link and just pop on over when you want to read the latest.

If you passed on the iPhone 7 to wait for the iPhone 8—or whatever name Apple decides to use—it sounds like next year’s phone could be the design refresh you were waiting for. Just don’t expect the headphone jack to return.

It's Not Just You, iCloud Calendar Spam is On...

New submitter petersike writes: If you're using iCloud to sync your calendar across your devices, chances are you just received a bunch of spammy invites over the last few days. Many users are reporting fake events about Black Friday 'deals' coming from Chinese users. If you're looking for cheap Ray-Ban or Louis Vuitton knockoffs, you might find these invites useful. Otherwise, you might be wondering: why is this a thing? If you use your calendar for work, you already rely on calendar invites to invite other people to meetings and events. All major calendar backends support this feature -- Google Calendar, Microsoft Exchange and Apple's iCloud. And it's quite a convenient feature as you only need to enter an email address to send these invitations. You don't need to be in the same company or even in your recipient's address book. But it's also yet another inbox -- and like every inbox out there, it can get abused.

Facebook Instant Games puts games right smack in the...

Facebook’s new Instant Games platform is as much about reorienting its social empire back toward gaming as much as it is cutting out the mobile apps that have threatened its hegemony on phones and tablets.

The new Instant Games platform, launched Tuesday, is an HTML5-based gaming platform that eliminates the need to download the recent Facebook Gameroom app. Seventeen games—including arcade classics as Space Invaders and Pac-Man as well as more modern games like EverWing and Words with Friends: Frenzy — can now be launched directly from your News Feed, rather than forcing users to dig them out from the left-hand sidebar. More importantly, in-app games can now be launched within both the Facebook mobile apps as well as Messenger—again, without the...

Jean-Louis Gassée: The Macintosh endgame

Jean-Louis Gassée, Monday Note:

There’s more to the Mac’s future than its current good numbers. After enjoying a good time in the sun, the Mac is on the same downward slope as the rest of the PC market.

What do you do when your business is part of a declining world? Do you decrease prices to gain market share? Bad idea, this is the PC clone makers’ race to the bottom, a game in which everyone loses as products become commoditized, undifferentiated, and, ultimately, worthless.

Jean-Louis explores the possibility of a last Mac, as the market abandons the PC and settles for good on touch screen phones and tablets. I’m a hardcore Mac user, and i don’t see such a product (even enhanced by 3rd party add-ons) that would provide an experience superior to my Mac.

That said, I would not bet against such a product eventually arriving. If I had an iOS device that had the right keyboard and pointing device (so I could keep my hands on the keyboard, with a touchpad in...

The new MacBook Pro is kind of great for hackers

Adam Geitgey:

I’m not here to change your mind about the MacBook Pro. Yes, it’s probably too expensive and more RAM is better than less RAM. But everyone posting complaints without actually using a MBP for a few weeks is missing out on all the clever things you can do because it is built on USB-C. Over the past week or two with a new MacBook Pro (15in, 2.9ghz, TouchBar), I’ve been constantly surprised with how USB-C makes new things possible. It’s a kind of a hacker’s dream.

Great article. Part of it focuses on the fact that the author’s phone is a Google Pixel and has a USB-C port, so he can use a single charger to charge his phone and his Mac. But there’s more to the piece than that.

For example:

If you get any of the new USB-C compatible monitors (pretty much every vendor has at least one now), you only need to plug one single cable into your MBP.

You can then plug all your other devices into your monitor and everything flows over one USB-C to...

“Walking simulator” is a term used to deride games like Gone Home, Dear Esther, and Firewatch—all critically acclaimed, first-person experiences that get slammed by some gaming aficionados for focusing on storytelling over complex interactions....

Tim Hardwick, Mac Rumors:

One limitation of the Touch Bar discovered by TouchSwitcher’s developer is that only one non-system control can be displayed in the right-hand strip, meaning other Apple apps compete for the same space.

Both apps are pushing the boundaries a bit, but I applaud the Touch Bar experimentation.

Looking forward to Touch Bar becoming the standard across the entire Mac product line. How about an external Touch Bar keyboard?

KGI predicting 2017 record sales year for iPhone

Benjamin Mayo, 9to5mac:

Apple is ramping for its biggest iPhone sales success ever next year, according to KGI. Its estimates suggest that the new iPhones in 2017, expected to comprise three new models, will empower Apple growth with ‘unprecedented’ demand. KGI expects the new phones may sell between 120-150 million units in the second half of next year, eclipsing the previous sales record set by iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

The new form-factor premium OLED iPhone will likely encourage high-end customers to upgrade their device and the low-end new 4.7-inch iPhone model (with wireless charging and a glass chassis) will be attractive to the lower-end of the smartphone market.
