In-depth review: Apple's 4.7-inch iPhone 6...

After establishing iPhone 5s as a "forward thinking" high-end luxury device a year ago, Apple is now enhancing its eighth generation of iPhone with a broad range of new and improved hardware components, inside a slimmer new case design with a much larger, higher-resolution display.

Why Apple Kept the 16 GB iPhone in Favor of 32 GB

Wondering why configurations for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus start at a pathetic 16 GB instead of jumping to the more logical 32 GB? The answer is most certainly profit for Apple, and that higher profit comes from a bit of clever psychological marketing.

Users Report Warping of Apple's iPhone 6 Plus

MojoKid writes: Apple's iPhone 6 Plus weighs six ounces, and it's a scant 7.1mm thick. As an added bonus, according to a number of users, it has a hidden feature — it bends! And no, we don't mean it bends in a "Hey, what an awesome feature!" sort of way. More like a "Hey, the entire phone is near to snapping" kind of way. What's even more troubling is that many of the users who are reporting bent devices also claim that they were carrying it in front pockets or in a normal fashion as opposed to sitting on it directly. Either some of the iPhone 6 Plus hardware is defective (the vastly preferable option) or it's because the tests run by other venues are putting different kinds of stress on the chassis. It's not clear what the story is. Hopefully Apple will clarify it soon.

DIY Pi-Top Computer Lets Users Get Under the Hood


Pi-Top, a Raspberry Pi Model B+ powered build-your-own-laptop kit, soon could enable users to learn computer programming, designing and 3D-printing skills. The Pi-Top team recently released details on its construction of a prototype computer. The developers plan to use the model in a Kickstarter campaign to generate funding for the project. They printed the prototype in four parts with a Rostock Max V2 printer. That process took about 160 hours to complete, but a new design has shortened the total print time to roughly 60 hours.

Can’t wait for Photos for OS X? Photos app likely...

With Photos for OS X not being released until early next year, it seemed like there would be no way to view your photos backed up in iCloud Photo Library away from an iOS device. However, screenshots and error messages from iCloud.com show that a Photos app is in development for the website, so that users could access their pictures in some fashion on a computer.

The above screenshot is captured from an Apple help page, clearly showing a Photos app in the menu, which is currently absent from the public site. The app features the same icon as the Photos app, but its unclear what exact functionality it will bring. Poking around a bit, we discovered something that means it is unlikely the screenshot is simply a Photoshop mistake.

Apple rolls out Actual Size print ads

When Apple announced the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, I wrestled with the question of how big the new models were with respect to my existing iPhone 5s. Will the 6 Plus fit in my pockets? Obviously, a trip to the Apple Store is one solution, but not everyone has access to one.

Apple is clearly aware of this issue and has responded in a number of ways.

The cost difference to Apple between the iPhone 6...

Apple may be struggling to meet demand for the iPhone 6 Plus, but the effort will be worthwhile according to some number-crunching by IHS cited by Bloomberg: it makes an extra $84.50 in profit on the larger model.

It costs an additional $15.50 to make the larger iPhones, according to a breakdown by researchers at IHS, but the sticker price is $100 higher than the iPhone 6 [...] The main difference in cost between the two phones comes from the supersize screen, which adds $7.50 to Apple’s production cost. The camera and battery subsystems also cost slightly more.

While everyone doing these analyses seems to come up with a...

Fake shirt-cuff material extends from the end of the jacket sleeves to give the impression of a complete dress shirt worn underneath. It’s as if a jumpsuit and a business suit had a lovechild.

14 iPhone apps that use Touch ID

Touch ID was the standout feature of the iPhone 5s when it launched, and now a standard feature of the latest batch of iPhones—and probably all iPhones from now until forever. And now with iOS 8, we can finally use Touch ID to do more than just unlock our iPhones and purchase things from the App Store. Third-party app developers wasted no time in unrolling updates that take advantage of Touch ID. Here are some of the coolest ones we've seen so far.

Apple Features ‘Actual Size’ iPhone 6/Plus in...

On the back cover of the latest issue of Rolling Stone magazine* is an ad for the new iPhone models. It's labeled "Actual Sizes," showing off how big the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus actually are. I took a photo of the ad with my iPhone 5s next to it, also shown actual size (compared to the other two). I'm not sure where else the ad will be appearing, but with nearly 1.5 million subscribers, that's a lot of people who could be getting a good look at the new devices for the first time. Clever move to make them actual size, the first thing I did was set my phone on each one for comparison. Well played, Apple.

iPhone 6 Review: Bigger, Better, and BIGGER

Apple went big with its iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus introduction - with the launch event and screen size. Both models are bigger than any iPhone Apple has made before, and very noticeably so. That size, however, does come with some benefits like faster processors, better cameras, and even support NFC-based mobile payment systems. Compared to the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c, the new models really are a lot bigger, and for some people, the extra features may not be worth the size increase. Read on to see if the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are worth the price for you.

iPhone 6 camera compared to all previous iPhones (...

The makers of camera app Camera+ have put together a great comparison of the new iPhone 6 camera vs almost all previous generation iPhones including the first iPhone, the iPhone 3G, 3GS, 4, 4S, 5, and 5S.

Skin tones look brighter and more true to life with the iPhone 6 in this portrait series. Although the iPhone 6 photo has a higher level of detail, I’m finding it slightly pixelated and blotchy-looking. Apple altered their local tone-mapping algorithm for better exposure and contrast using the new A8 processor, but it looks like it might be causing some issues with the skin tones in these shots. Additionally, their new noise reduction algorithm seems a bit heavy handed causing pixelation.

The full comparison on the company’s site lets you view full-sized shots for a number of different shooting...

electronic convict writes: A year ago, security researcher Marc Rogers demonstrated how to spoof the TouchID sensor in the iPhone 5S using some Elmer's glue and glycerol — oh, and a high resolution camera and a laser printer. Has TouchID security improved at all on the iPhone 6? Not really, Rogers reports in his latest post, in which he again hacks the iPhone 6's TouchID sensors using the same method as before. "Fake fingerprints created using my previous technique were able to readily fool both devices [the 6 and the 5S]," he reports. Rogers, however, says there's no reason to panic, as the attack requires substantial skill, patience and a good clear fingerprint. As he writes: "We use locks on our doors to keep criminals out not because they are perfect, but because they are both convenient and effective enough to meet most traditional threats."

Brave new phone call

Steven Levy:

How can an app displace 135 years of telephony?

The first step is by being an app and not a facsimile of a desk phone. Unlike the “dialer” on your mobile, or even the call button on your contact list, Talko presents the opportunity to begin a conversation by simply touching on the image of the person or team you want to talk to, whether they are ready to join right now or sometime in the future.

Going to be very interesting to see if this takes off in any appreciable way.

Man Bends iPhone 6 Plus with Bare Hands on Video

With reports (Google Translation) popping up claiming Apple's new 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus can get bent just by being in your pocket, YouTube channel UnboxTherapy did a bend test on the device. There's no sense beating around the bush about it, either, because Lewis bent it. With his hands. His bare hands. It required a lot of effort, but he did it. he was focusing his efforts on the middle, but it turned out that it bent in the area near the buttons. That makes sense in hindsight, because the spot with the holes is going to be the weakest point in the case. It also matches the bends that are showing up from people complaining about bends from their pockets. Note that the device continued to work even after it was bent, but at the very least, this is an argument against keeping the beast in your pocket, even it it fits. Also, Apple could have a problem on its hands.

Oh dear. On Tuesday, software giant Ray Ozzie launched Talko, an app that promises to “save the telephone call”—and basically copies Apple’s iOS 8 Messages feature in the process.

On the surface, Talko is a wonderful app. Think of it as Slack or HipChat or an AOL chat room, with group texting, the ability to record voice, share location, and even photos. Talko’s team wrapped it all up within Apple’s pristine iOS 8 design motif, sprinkled a bit of fairy dust on it, and unveiled it with broad smiles to a gullible tech press.

Because that’s what you do when you have a Really Big Deal—especially a company backed by such names as Marc Andreessen or Greylock Capital. You put legendary software giant Ray Ozzie out in front of The New York TimesUSA Today, The Verge, the Associated Press, and even Steven Levy’s new tech site at Medium—the list goes on and on. And although everyone who ever used it despised Ozzie’s first product, Lotus Notes, Ozzie still...

Why I'm returning my iPhone 6 (well, maybe)

Like many (many, many) people, I preordered a new iPhone 6 as soon as I possibly could. I didn’t choose the iPhone 6 Plus, the clown-shoe version of this device, but went for the standard-sized model. I’ve often desired to have a slightly larger screen, so I welcomed the idea of a 4.7-inch iPhone. I thought it would allow me to see more content, and use larger fonts, which would help my aging eyes. After using it for a few days, however, I’m not sure that I really want to keep it. I may return my iPhone 6 and continue using the iPhone 5s.

iPhone 6 pocket problems: Some buyers report that...

The iPhone 6 Plus is a sizable phone, so large that it doesn’t fit in smaller pockets. But some buyers are finding a problem other than the fit: When they
sit down for extended periods of time with the 6 Plus in their front pocket, the 5.5-inch phone bends ever so slightly.

The reports first surfaced on the MacRumors forums, where a handful of users have posted
photos of their phones’ bent aluminum bodies. The original poster pocketed his 6 Plus for about 18 hours one day, mostly sitting, and provided photo
evidence of his space gray phone’s resulting curvature.

Desktop PC customer satisfaction surpasses tablets...

ACSI:

Customer satisfaction with computing devices continues to slide but desktop computers do better than laptops and tablets, according to a new report from the American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI). The annual measure of personal computers falls 1.3 percent to an ACSI score of 78 (on a 0-100 point scale). Laptops deteriorate the most (-4% to 76), while tablets dip slightly (-1% to 80), but desktops gain 3 percent to take the lead at 81.

Even though Apple “dropped 3% to 84″ it continues to “maintain a sizable lead over its major competitors”. It would be interesting to understand the reasons for the overall increased in desktop PC satisfaction. Perhaps people who have switched to laptops and tablets have discovered they are not as powerful as they need or want.

The first GIF Keyboard made for iOS 8 has landed...

Although dozens of custom keyboards have been launching left and right just in time for iOS 8, most of them have stayed rather traditional. Yes, there’s new features here and there that are firsts for iOS like the ability to swipe to type using Swype and SwiftKey, but these are still just keyboards for typing letters. A new keyboard from Riffsy called GIF Keyboard, on the other hand, isn’t really a keyboard—it’s a great way to quickly and easily send GIFs to friends using your favorite apps.

After you install it and activate it from deep within the Settings app (which is a pain), you’ll find that it’s set up somewhat similar to the Emoji keyboard. Along the bottom you’ll find various GIF categories, within each there’s a set of GIFs with one to fit any possible situation you could dream of. Each image is under a hashtag...

New rubber gaskets around buttons help iPhone 6/Plus...

In iFixit’s ritual dismantling of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus last week, the repair company noted that Apple had started including rubber gaskets around the power and volume buttons likely in an effort to make the iPhone more water and dust resistant.

Similar gaskets surround the volume buttons. Altogether, this seems to represent a move toward increased water/dust resistance, and therefore improved durability.

iFixit

How did Apple do? Well iPhone warranty provider Squaretrade was able to dunk both the 6 and 6 Plus for 10 seconds without any real damage. While this is indeed nice to have, especially for those of us who like to take our iPhones with us to the pool, it is by no means a guarantee like Samsung and Sony have on some of their phones.

First Look: Orbotix Ollie by Sphero

We first saw Orbotix's Ollie ($100) by Sphero at CES 2014 and were immediately impressed. Unlike Sphero (review) and Sphero 2.0 (review), Ollie isn't a robotic ball — it's a quick little app-controlled robot with two wheels. Although it's not waterproof like the prior Sphero balls, Ollie can reportedly move at speeds up to 14 mph, and Orbotix claims it can run for one hour of play on a full three-hour USB charge. The customizable Ollie connects…

Apple’s rebranding of Beats Music streaming service...

Yesterday news broke that Apple was reportedly going to shut down its newly purchased Beats Music streaming service which Apple quickly dismissed as false although it does sound like changes for the brand and service are in the works as you might expect. Re/code’s John Paczkowski shared today that such a rebrand could be slated for February:

Now that we’ve established that Apple is not “shutting down” Beats Music, the streaming service that Tim Cook in May lauded as the “first music subscription service that really got it right,” and we’re all agreed that it makes far more sense for the company to dump the Beats Music brand and integrate the service into an offering of its own, we can move on to another more interesting question...

One user reported discovering that his new iPhone 6 Plus had bent slightly after only about 18 hours of sitting in a front suit pocket. While the problem of iPhones bending slightly isn’t new, the much larger but thinner profile of the iPhone 6 Plus increases the likelihood of this occurring,…

An unplanned convergence of Android apps and the Chrome OS may be setting the stage for a wide-open cross-platform architecture that combines Android and Chrome. Freelance programmer Vlad Filippov, aka "Vladikoff," discovered a way around Google's limitations on its ARC, or App Runtime for Chrome, which is essentially a Chrome extension application programming interface. Filippov hacked his way into the Google process to allow it to run on the Chrome OS and other platforms that run the Chrome Web browser. He dubbed that modification "ARChon."

The interviewer notes that the public has yet to see the matching app. "There's -- I don't think we showed this," Cook responds. "I've got a little advance copy. And so it will operate your Apple TV, and you can imagine that it can control other things as well."...

We’re currently working on an update to Skype for iPhone that scales for iPhone 6 and 6 Plus screen sizes, which we plan to release in the next month.

Unfortunately, that sounds like quite a while. Hopefully the updated version isn’t just bigger, but more optimized for the larger 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch panels.

iOS 8 adoption nears 50 percent after just 6 days

iPhone and iPad users still flock to download the latest version of iOS as it becomes available, but perhaps not as quickly as before.

According to Apple's developer portal, iOS 8 adoption now stands at 46 percent, while 49 percent of users are still on iOS 7. The remaining 5 percent are using “earlier” versions.

iOS 8 launched on Wednesday, September 17, which means the new version has been available for about six days. Apple didn't provide official data at this point last year, but several third-party metrics firms claim that uptake of iOS 8 has been slower than the previous version.

Research firm IHS, however, has shared a teardown analysis report with Re/code that claims Samsung is still responsible for a fraction of Apple’s A8 chips produced.
