iPhone 6 vs. 6 Plus Split Among Daring Fireball...

Thanks to this tweet from Dave Rutledge, I figured how to get Google Analytics to show me the split in screen sizes for mobile devices visiting Daring Fireball. Just counting “mobile devices” for the last 7 days:

Device
% Mobile Sessions

320×568 (iPhone 5/5S/5C)
30.1

768×1024 (all iPads)
29.0

375×667 (iPhone 6)
23.7

414×736 (iPhone 6 Plus)
7.0

320×480 (old iPhones)
4.1

Those percentages are only for mobile device sessions. (Mobile devices account for 44 percent of all DF sessions.) Two points of interest to me:

  1. This is more confirmation that the split is around 3-to-1 between the 6 and 6 Plus. As many readers have pointed out, the 6 Plus is still supply constrained, so the split might tilt back toward the 6...

On Tuesday, Soneira released full comparison-based results as to the display color accuracy of assorted tablets and smartphones, including the iPad Air 2 and the iPhone 6 Plus, wherein he studied the science as to what you see is what you get with its colors.

The findings, which included results from tests such as Entire Color Gamut, Facial Skin Tone Colors, Organic Colors and Blue Region from Cyan to Magenta Colors, tested absolute color accuracy and pitched the iPad Air 2 and iPhone 6 Plus, which have been fairly lauded for their displays, to see how they fared against other devices.

QCut Custom Fit Women’s Jeans

If you are a woman who has ever purchased a pair of jeans, you know this process can beâfraught with peril. You have to guess at the random number that is allegedly your size, since it varies from year to year and designer to designer. Then you have to guess close enough that you don't get stuck in them in the dressing room, and you have to hope they aren't too long/short/wide/narrow/high-waisted/low-waisted/whatever. If you find a pair you don't hate, you purchase multiples on the spot, even at full price. You know. In Case. Well, Crystal Beasley decided enough was enough and launched a Kickstarter campaign to fix this. Called QCut (as in cut on cue), Crystal is designing jeans for you. And you. And you, too! They're all custom made, based on five measurements that include shoe size and bra size to help determine body type. This campaign has two weeks left as of today, and even though it's funded, you still may want to get in on it. Jeans that fit make an awesome Christmas gift! (...

Apple releases iOS 8.2 SDK, includes WatchKit tools

The Apple Watch and its associated apps are becoming very real, as a set of just-released development tools have just indicated.

Per 9to5Mac, alongside a release of Xcode 6.2 with WatchKit tools for the upcoming Apple Watch, Apple today posted its iOS 8.2 beta for developers. The release, build 12D436, follows the release of iOS 8.1.1 to all users yesterday with fixes and performance improvements for iPad 2 and iPhone 4S users.

The iOS 8.2 beta allows developers to start testing their apps for the upcoming Apple Watch wearable, but doesn’t appear to include any other notable features (at least not in Apple’s release notes). More specifically, developers can now start building companion experiences that include two optional Apple Watch interfaces:

WatchKit

Apple Watch represents a new chapter in the relationship people have with technology. Starting early 2015, you will be able to deliver innovative new experiences to your customers on their wrist. Learn how your existing app notifications can easily show up on Apple Watch. And by leveraging WatchKit, you can take your apps even further by extending and enhancing their functionality on Apple Watch.

This is a huge day for Apple. It may seem like this is just another SDK release for developers, but this is where Apple learns just how interested developers are in making apps for its new device. We’ve all seen it before with companies competing with Apple for iPhone and iPad apps—they matter to the consumer a lot. Products that don’t have deep developer support have a good chance of failing. When Apple does release the Apple Watch next year, they want to be able to stand up and brag about how many apps are already available. It’s an important day.

The next-generation iPhone may represent Apple's "biggest camera jump ever," says Daring Fireball's John Gruber. In a recent podcast episode, Gruber explains that "a birdie of a birdie" tells him that the camera will adopt a "kind of weird two-lens system where the back camera uses two lenses and it somehow takes it up into DSLR-quality imagery." That could imply a camera similar to the one in the HTC One M8, which uses an extra lens to provide more image data and enable post-processed focus shifts....

Apple is cracking down on Notification Center widgets

I don’t understand Apple’s overall stance on this issue. I agree that some companies will, given the opportunity, take it too far and clutter the Notification Widget. However, there are times when an expanded widget makes sense.

Why you should delete Uber, and what to use instead

I deleted Uber from my phone last night, and I think you should too. Let me explain why.

What happened

On Monday, BuzzFeed’s Ben Smith posted a dilly of a scoop, quoting Uber’s Senior Vice President of Business Emil Michael, who told a fancy dinner party of New York elite that Uber could spend $1 million to discredit its critics in the press, specifically PandoDaily’s Sarah Lacy, who has written about the company’s shady tactics and misogynistic culture. But Uber wouldn’t be spending $1 million on damage control or positive PR—Michael boasted that the company could hire opposition researchers to dig into journalists’ personal and family lives, and “prove a particular and very specific claim about [Lacy’s] personal life,” Smith wrote.

Jury: Apple must pay $23.6M for old pager patents

Apple has lost a jury trial in the patent hotspot of East Texas. Late Monday, a jury in Marshall reached a verdict that Apple must pay $23.6 million for infringing patents once owned by a Mississippi pager company. The verdict, while large, is only about 10 percent of what lawyers for Mobile Telecommunications Technology LLC (MTel) were asking for.

According to a Bloomberg report on the case, Mobile Telecommunications was a wireless messaging pioneer in the 1990s when these patents were filed. The patents were used in its SkyTel 2-way paging system. Now, MTel is a licensing company controlled by United Wireless Holdings, which...

There are three types of integrations currently possible: WatchKit apps, Glances and actionable notifications. Although they sound similar,  the development process for WatchKit apps are actually very different to that of normal iOS apps for iPhone and iPad, as much of the computation is done on the connected iPhone rather than rendered by the watch’s hardware itself.

The interface elements and interaction patterns for WatchKit apps revolve around a core set of user interface components and layouts. Arbitrary views are not supported, which is a big departure from how iOS apps are constructed.

Xsan volume UUID

Forums: General Xsan Talk

I use volume name and UUID attributes to positively identify volumes on OS X. For the average HFS+ volume, I can count on the UUID being unique and consistent across the lifetime of that volume. Some of my customers have reported that ACFS volumes, however, get new UUIDs each time the Xsan volume is mounted, e.g.:

diskutil info /Volumes/XSAN | grep "Volume UUID"
Volume UUID: BA3B4176-FE67-3212-AF40-E4C1E710B28C

[Use Xsan tools to unmount and remount the volume, and/or restart the MDC and/or restart the clients -- frankly I don't know which of these actions produces the result]

diskutil info /Volumes/XSAN | grep "Volume UUID"
Volume UUID: 33413E33-7F77-4FC4-BA30-E4B4ABE0FE16

Macworld readers reported their own issues with the Yosemite update, reflecting the current sentiment over on Apple’s support forums. A handful of threads on Apple’s Yosemite support forum indicate that 10.10.1 didn’t fix the problem of Wi-Fi connectivity dropping out, or if it did, Wi-Fi remains slow.

Apple may let third-party accessories have their own...

Apple is reportedly preparing a new Lightning receptacle for third-party accessories, paving the way for USB-free battery packs and Lightning-based headphones.

As 9to5Mac reports, Apple briefed accessory makers on its plans during a conference in China last week. The receptacle should be in accessory makers' hands early next year.

One obvious application for the new connection would be for battery cases such as the Mophie Juice Pack. Currently, iPhone users must charge these accessories with a separate MicroUSB cable. With a Lightning receptacle, users could just plug in the same Lightning cable that they already use to charge their phones. Mophie's Android phone cases already work this way with standard USB cables, so users can charge both...

Apple Pay now supported at BI-LO, Winn-Dixie,...

In spite of the MCX and CurrentC ordeal, Apple Pay seems to be gaining some ground.

Per MacRumors, Apple Pay this week continued its retail expansion with the mobile payment service now being adopted by SunTrust bank and Bi-Lo holdings, which manages BI-LO, Harveys, and Winn-Dixie grocery stores. The latter announcement follows reports of of Winn-Dixie and BI-LO beginning to go live with Apple Pay support late last week ahead of an official debut, despite not being included on Apple’s “Coming later this year” list.

Customers with a SunTrust credit or debit card will be able to add their card to Apple Pay and use it to make purchases at participating retailers. Headquartered in Atlanta, SunTrust bank has 1,497 bank branches across eleven southern states and Washington, D.C.

This doesn’t seem to be the same case for everyone.

Per 9to5Mac, Computerworld and complaints registered on the Apple Support Communities, yesterday’s dot-release of OS X 10.10.1 has seemingly failed to address the Wi-Fi problems some users have been experiencing since upgrading to Yosemite, according to continuing posts on the Apple Support Communities.

Despite the first bullet-point in the release notes for 10.10.1 reading ‘Improves WiFi reliability,’ many...

Analysts attending the Reuters Global Investment Outlook Summit in New York have suggested that Apple could eventually be valued at a trillion dollars.

Gains in shares of Apple Inc could take the world’s largest publicly traded company to a market capitalization of perhaps as high as $1 trillion, some of the country’s biggest investors said on Monday.

AAPL got two-thirds of the way there a few days ago, reaching $663B, since climbing further to $670B, and billionaire investor Carl Icahn suggested last month that the company should already be valued at a trillion dollars … ...

Apple ordered to pay $23.6 million after losing...

Bloomberg reports that a federal jury has found Apple guilty of infringing on six patents related to outdated pager technology from the 1990s. The U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas has ordered Apple to pay a $23.6 million settlement for violating six patents owned by plaintiff Mobile Telecommunications Technologies LLC in the case.

Mobile Telecommunications Technologies claimed that several Apple products with wireless messaging were violating the pager technology, including the iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Airport lineup of Wi-Fi products. Apple won a similar case over pager technology, involving a different company, last month in a California court.

“Apple is refusing to acknowledge the...

US Marshals Have Their Own Cellphone Data Slurpfest


The United States Marshals Service reportedly is grabbing data from thousands, if not millions, of Americans' cellphones using high-tech devices deployed on five Cessnas. The aircraft operate out of at least five metro-area airports and apparently can cover most of the U.S. population. They are equipped with DRT boxes, popularly known as "dirtboxes," made by a subsidiary of Boeing. The DRT boxes gather the IMSI numbers -- a cellphone's unique identifier -- and geolocation data from all cellphones within their range.

Apple Loses MTel Pager Patent Case, Ordered to Pay $...

Apple has been ordered to pay Mobile Telecommunications Technologies LLC US$23.6 million for infringing on six patents related to 1990s-era pager technology. MTel claimed the messaging and WiFi technology used in the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch infringe on patents it owns, and a federal jury in Marshall, Texas, agreed.

The Mac Observer Spin: Assuming Apple can't get the MTel ruling overturned, the company behind the once market-leading SkyTel two-way pager system could be in a strong position to target other companies that offer text messaging services. In this case, Apple wasn't facing off against a patent troll, so if it really was infringing on MTel's patents, it's time to pay up and move on.

For example, battery cases can include a Lightning connector for…

The new Lightning receptacle, scheduled to start shipping next year, will allow accessory makers to build new types of accessories that include a port for Apple’s proprietary Lightning connector previously reserved for its own iOS devices (pictured above).

Even the friggen website looks like it was lifted from the apple.com domain.

Potentially, now there is. Door Kickers, by KillHouse Games, is a real-time strategy game that gives players the ability to undergo tactical interventions while leading their own SWAT team. While the game itself is in fact a real-time strategy, the tactical elements and the ability to pause are likely to please gamers who enjoy more tactical play....

How to open your ClarisWorks files for a stroll down...

It’s easy to assume that we have it better now than we ever had it in the past. In raw numerical terms, today’s computers are many thousands of times faster than the computers I grew up using in the ’80s and ’90s, and that has enabled the development of software that is wildly more capable but in many cases much more user-friendly than the apps I used back then. Yet say the word ClarisWorks—the name given to the precursor to iWork as Apple’s office package—to a Mac user of my vintage and they’ll pause for a moment, go a bit misty-eyed, and proceed to tell you with a slightly unsettling zeal how awesome and ahead-of-its-time it was.

And it really was. Before ClarisWorks, so-called integrated product suites were nothing of the kind. That is, while you might have gotten a word processor, spreadsheet app and drawing app bundled in one box (installed, of course, from a stack of floppy disks), they were essentially separate apps. While they might appear to be part of a suite on...

Like Nest and Honeywell's rival entry, the smart device can be managed through a smartphone app from anywhere with a cellular or Wi-Fi connection. The Ecobee3 sells for the same price as the Nest, $250....

Apple executive Eddy Cue, in charge of the team that developed Apple Pay, recently participated in some holiday shopping with local news station KTLA to demonstrate how the new mobile payments platform works. Cue, alongside tech reporter Rich DeMuro, visited a number of stores in Santa Monica, California, including Panera Bread, Bloomingdale’s and the Disney Store.

The video reiterates how seamless it is to make contactless payments with Apple Pay by simply tapping an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus on an NFC-equipped payment terminal. While some retailers still require a signature depending on the purchase amount, Apple hopes to remove that hurdle and make Apple Pay an even more convenient experience at the over 220,000 stores where it is accepted.
