Apple To Start Paying Ireland the Billions It Owes...

Last year, Apple was ordered to pay a record sum of 13 billion euros ($14.5 billion) plus interest after the European Commission said Ireland illegally slashed the iPhone maker's tax bill. "But Ireland was rather slow to start collecting that cash, which led the Commission to refer the Irish government to the European Court of Justice in October due to Ireland's non-compliance with the 2016 ruling," reports Engadget. "However, the Wall Street Journal reports today that the country will finally start collecting those billions of dollars owed by Apple and it may start doing so early next year." From the report:
Both Apple and Ireland have fought back against the ruling -- Ireland has said that the European Union overstepped its authority and got some of the country's laws wrong while Apple has maintained that the amount it's being told to repay was miscalculated. Both are continuing to appeal the decision and the money will sit in an escrow fund while they do so. Ireland has...

Review: Sennheiser HD1 Wireless In-Ear Headphones

In late 2012, Sennheiser — one of the most well-regarded companies in the headphone industry — released a series of retro-inspired headphones that were a departure from almost everything it had done before. These headphones ditched the utilitarian look of their other over-headphones for a retro look, and ditched the alphanumeric designations (like "HD600") for a name that told you everything you needed to know about its sound — the "Momentum." In late 2014, the Momentum In-Ears were introduced, with a unique look and similar sound signature. The entire line was more recently refreshed under the name "M2," with refinements all around. Today we're taking a look at the latest evolution of Sennheiser's Momentum line. Though it may have fallen back in line with traditional Sennheiser naming conventions, the HD1 M2 IEBT (or, "HD1 Wireless") still has the DNA of its predecessors, and will always be a Momentum to us.{/exp:char_limit}

Fuse Chicken takes on Amazon over counterfeit...

Here at Apple World Today, and at TUAW before that, I've been a fan of Fuse Chicken. The company is a fast-growing design house / accessory manufacturer out of Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio that first came to my notice when it set up a Kickstarter campaign for the Bobine -- an iPhone Charging dock that used a unique metal-clad flexible sheath around a USB - Lightning cable to support the phone and charge it. That design is what's behind a lawsuit filed by Fuse Chicken against Amazon as the result of the online retailer mixing counterfeit cables in with real product.

Fuse Chicken started selling products on Amazon in 2013, then noticed the alleged fakes being sold as "genuine Fuse Chicken" in November 2016. When Amazon.com received product for sale and distribution, the genuine products from Fuse Chicken were co-mingled with fakes from other sources.

Quanta Computer, one of Apple’s main manufacturing partners, has made a licensing agreement with Lumuns, an augmented-reality component maker, for manufacturing lenses for smart glasses. This doesn’t necessarily mean Apple AR (augmented reality) glasses are coming, but it does add fuel to the rumors.

Lumus designs displays for AR glasses that will project information into the wearer’s field of view. As part of the deal, Quanta will manufacture the lenses for Lumus and then have the option to produce the component for leading consumer technology companies, Lumus Chief Executive Officer Ari Grobman told Bloomberg.

Apple is believed to be working on an AR headset. In a June blog post, venture capitalist Gene Munster said...

AI and the randomness of a human mind

Om Malik talking about how a simple sound brought back powerful memories of his grandfather:

But to me, AI as we know it is nowhere close to having the intelligence of the human mind. I suspect my brain took random bits of metadata stored in my mind and constructed a good enough memory to bring a tear and a smile to my face.

That’s an interesting point. I can’t imagine that AI would be able to bring such an emotional response to something as simple as a sound that takes us back in time.

iPhone X - OtterBox Symmetry Case Review

When I decided to review a few cases, I wanted to start with an OtterBox case. I have been using OtterBox cases since the PocketPC days and I know the company puts out some really well-built cases. I'm pretty sure that iPhone made OtterBox a household name, for good reason. Why not give the OtterBox Symmetry a shot at protecting my iPhone X, right?

I had my friends at Cases.com send me over a few cases and one of the cases I chose to review was the OtterBox Symmetry case. This case has the form factor that I was after. It's not super bulky and has a good deal of protection. Obviously the Symmetry line isn't as rugged as the Defender line but the Symmetry line offers "Slim Protection". 

Symmetry Series is the slim protective iPhone X case that turns the ordinary into the extraordinary. It features a one-piece design that's...

The same day, one of China's most-senior officials called for more aggressive government involvement online to combat terrorism and criminals. Wang Huning, one of seven men on China's top decision-making body, even called for a global response team to go well beyond its borders.

It’s hard to believe that I’ve had a comprehensive smart home for less than a year. My first HomeKit purchases were made in January, and the gaps filled in February. Yet the technology had become so much a part of home that it felt really odd (and not a little disconcerting) to be left without it for a couple of weeks.

You always feel a bit like you’re camping for a little while on moving into a new home, when you’re not yet fully unpacked and things aren’t all set up the way you want them. I was surprised just how much of that feeling I got from the lack of home automation.

So it was with some relief that I finally set about...

The ground-breaking digital blue box was developed by Apple’s co-founder Steve Wozniak in 1972 and was the inventor’s first printed circuit board.

As a result, the user was able to get free overseas phone calls in an era when making a long-distance call was hugely expensive.

Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities is today out with a new investor note, obtained by 9to5Mac. In the piece, Kuo breaks down how Apple is working to integrate faster and more versatile circuit boards across its product lineup come 2018.

Currently, the iPhone 8 and iPhone X both use a new flexible circuit board made from liquid crystal polymer. Both phones use it in their antenna designs, while the iPhone X also uses it in its TrueDepth camera. This LCP FPCB technology allows for high-speed and low-latency data transfer.

More detail in the post, but nice to see this terrific, space-saving, performance-increasing tech making its way over to the Apple Watch and Mac.

Makes me wonder if this is part of the supply-chain scheduling driving the iMac Pro and Mac Pro. The iMac Pro was announced at WWDC, said to ship this month (December 2017). And the Mac Pro is, well, anybody’s guess. But good to know this tech is coming.

[VIDEO] Lots of goodies in the iOS 11.2 update. Biggest of all was the release of Apple Pay Cash. I’ve been playing with it, looks very useful. In a nutshell, you’ll tie a debit card to the Apple Pay Cash card in your wallet, then use the Apple Pay Cash card to send or receive cash. A bit like Venmo or PayPal, but tied in to the secure enclave.

The folks from MacRumors put together a nice intro to Apple Pay Cash that I found quite easy to follow. It’s embedded in the main Loop post.

Once you’ve installed the iOS 11.2 update, fire up the Wallet app and you’ll be prompted to set up Apple Pay Cash.

UPDATE: There have been some comments about Apple Pay Cash only being available in beta. While this might be true, I can tell you that I played with it on a phone running the beta as well as on a phone that has a public release of iOS 11.2. So, perhaps it’s the Apple Pay Cash server that’s in beta?

Last year, the European Commission told Apple to repay about €13B in back taxes to the country, which had given Apple unfair tax breaks. Apple has to put the money into an escrow account while appealing the decision. The appeal could take up to five years.

After online reports of a bug that appeared to be crashing iPhones just after the date rolled over to December 2, Apple rolled out the iOS 11.2 on Saturday, the first time the company has ever released an update on a weekend. Time-based notifications for certain apps began crashing or respringing the devices at 12:15 a.m. on December 2, specifically apps that issue repeated reminders throughout the day.

iOS 11.2 fixes date bug that crashes iDevices,...

Enlarge / The iPhone 8 Plus dwarfs the iPhone X.

Some iPhone users woke up this weekend to continuously crashing iPhones, iPads, and other iDevices, and Apple has pushed out its iOS 11.2 software update early to fix this and numerous other issues. The update also starts the rollout for Apple Pay Cash and enables 7.5W wireless charging on new iPhones.

Users took to Internet forums early this weekend after discovering an iOS 11 bug that made their iPhones crash after 12:15am on December 2. Aside from the date and time, the issue was tied to local notifications from scheduled daily alerts or from apps that send repeat reminders. A...

VeprIT has launched SlideFlow, a Mac app for generating animated photo slideshows with background music and playing it on a TV screen. 

According to VeprIT owner, Demid Borodin, the utility “offers the most natural viewing experience, presenting the full photograph, and then applying Ken Burns effect to zoom on human faces.” The user can export the slideshow as a video file, or play it immediately on a connected TV. 

SlideFlow works over a local Wi-Fi network with many modern smart TVs, such as Samsung, LG, and Sony TVs. It is also expected to work with other DLNA devices. Support for Google Cast (Chromecast) is coming in future versions, as well as an iOS version.

SlideFlow requires macOS 10.12 or higher and available at the Mac App Store. It’s free, but does apply watermarks to generated slideshows until users pay the $2.99 in-app purchase.

Analyst: AirPods shipments could reach 28 million in...

In a note to clients — as noted by AppleInsider — KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo calls the AirPods the "the most important accessory in Apple's wireless ecosystem” and predicts Apple could ship between 26 million and 28 million units of the wireless headphones in 2018.

Such sales would represent 100% year-over-year growth. AirPods are wireless headphones that allow users to listen to music, make phone calls, enjoy TV shows and movies, play games and interact with Siri. Apple says that advanced sensors know when you are listening and automatically play and pause your music. 

Using Siri, AirPods allow you to access the “personal assistant” with a double tap. The wireless headphones, including a charging case, cost $159. AirPods require Apple devices running iOS 10.x, watchOS 3.x or macOS Sierra or higher.

iOS 11.2 rolls out some emoji updates

I think Emojipedia is a terrific resource. If you’ve not spent time here before, jump to the linked page, showing the emoji changes that came with this iOS release. First, there’s there’s the high resolution images of the 17 emoji that have changed.

To get a sense of these, take a look at the tumbler emoji. Here’s the old, iOS 11.1 version. And here’s the version updated for iOS 11.2.

I love the attention to detail here. The old one looks like a bit flat, and the scotch (or whatever is in it) looks cloudy. The new one looks more realistic.

[UPDATE: Apparently, the tumbler emoji was updated, then reverted back to the old version, then updated back to the new one...

Apple Snafu Means Updating To macOS 10.13.1 Could...

Mark Wilson writes: A few days ago, a serious security flaw with macOS High Sierra came to light. It was discovered that it was possible to log into the 'root' account without entering a password, and -- although the company seemed to have been alerted to the issue a couple of weeks back -- praise was heaped on Apple for pushing a fix out of the door quickly. But calm those celebrations. It now transpires that the bug fix has a bug of its own. Upgrade to macOS 10.13.1 and you could well find that the patch is undone. Slow hand clap.

Apple patent involves an armband for use with an...

Apple has never released an armband for use with its iPhones, but a newly granted patent (number 20170340095) for an “armband holding an electronic device” show the company has considered it.

Per the patent, the armband includes a pouch which includes a window and an opening configured to allow an electronic device to be inserted into the pouch. The armband also includes an arm strap wherein the proximate end of the arm strap is coupled to the pouch.

The arm strap includes: holes arranged in a specified pattern; loop cells at specified locations along the length of the arm strap; and a hook cell located at a distal end of the arm strap. The armband further includes a ring coupled to the pouch configured to allow the distal end of the arm strap to be passed through the ring and pulled toward the proximate end of the arm strap so that the hook cell can be coupled to one or more loop cells.

Of course, Apple files for — and is granted — lots of patents by the U.S....

Anyone driving with their smartphone plastered to their ear or glancing at the screen is just asking for disaster for themselves and others. Thankfully, car mounts can help with such situations if used carefully. The $29.99 Montar car mount is as good as any I’ve tried.

It has the option to hold your iPhone in horizontal or parallel position. It works with most cases, including Apple’s Leather Sleeve for the iPhone X. And it sports a 3M sticky bottom and a suction cup, which offers double protection to keep your expensive smartphone from hitting the floor or flying across the car when you hit the brakes or take a sharp turn.

I’ve been using the Montar care mount for a week, including a  five-hour round trip over the Thanksgiving holiday. And it...

KGI remains very bullish on the uptake of Apple’s truly-wireless AirPods earbuds ($159: eBay, Best Buy). In a new report published today, Ming-Chi Kuo says that he expects Apple to double shipments of the AirPods in 2018. This would equate to shipments in the range of 26-28 million units.

AirPods have been supply constrained since their introduction in December 2016. Only in the last few weeks has availability improved to the point where the Apple Online Store reports 1-3 day delivery estimates.

In the US, iPhone X adoption after three weeks matched the adoption of iPhone 8 Plus and beat early adoption levels for both the iPhone 8 and 7 Plus. Only the iPhone 7 model had greater initial success. In Japan, initial iPhone X adoption was as good as or better than any recent iPhone launch, and matched the level of the iPhone 7.

It is predicting that the new flagship phone will set an all-time this quarter …

Should Apple Share iPhone X Face Data With App...

The Washington Post ran a technology column asking what happens "when the face-mapping tech that powers the iPhone X's cutesy 'Animoji' starts being used for creepier purposes." It's not just that the iPhone X scans 30,000 points on your face to make a 3D model. Though Apple stores that data securely on the phone, instead of sending it to its servers over the Internet, "Apple just started sharing your face with lots of apps." Although their columnist praises Apple's own commitment to privacy, "I also think Apple rushed into sharing face maps with app makers that may not share its commitment, and it isn't being paranoid enough about the minefield it just entered." "I think we should be quite worried," said Jay Stanley, a senior policy analyst at the American Civil Liberties Union. "The chances we are going to see mischief around facial data is pretty high -- if not today, then soon -- if not on Apple then on Android." Apple's face tech sets some good precedents -- and some bad ones...

Rumor: Apple to incorporate flexible circuit boards...

Analyst and assorted Mac guru Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities has issued a new investor note stating the Apple is working to integrate faster and more versatile circuit boards across its product lineup come 2018.

The iPhone 8 and iPhone X handsets currently use a new flexible circuit board made from liquid crystal polymer. Both phones use it in their antenna designs, while the iPhone X also uses it in its TrueDepth camera. This LCP FPCB technology allows for high-speed and low-latency data transfer.

Kuo has stated that manufacturer Career is presently working on incorporating this technology into the MacBook notebook lineup. Such a practice would allow Apple to save a considerable amount of internal space inside the casing as well as allow for easier adoption of USB 3.2 and other I/O ports.

Kuo offered the following statement:

It order to address future hardware form factor design requirements (e.g. saving more internal space) and to keep abreast of...

iOS 11.2 released over the weekend, adds Apple Pay...

It’s pretty unusual for Apple to release a major iOS update over the weekend, but the company did this with iOS 11.2, which, among other changes, offers support for Apple Pay Cash, 7.5-watt charging on compatible devices and a fix for a nasty date bug that can cause devices to enter a soft reset loop.

The update seems to have been released early to handle a recently discovered date bug that can cause springboard to crash, rendering an affected device barely usable.

It’s also been noted that the update, which was released on December 2nd, seems to share the same creation time as the betas, which did not suffer from the date bug.

Since its release, Apple has urged users who are experiencing unexpected restarts to disable notifications and install the latest version of the mobile operating system.

Along with the date bug fix, iOS 11.2 is supposed to activate Apple Pay Cash, the company’s peer-to-peer money transfer solution, but backend support does...
