It’s time for Munster’s annual ‘Apple television’...

Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster is famous for his annual prediction that Apple’s long-rumored television is launching next year, but this year he’s mixing it up a little, predicting instead that it will be launched in two years’ time.

Back in 2011, he predicted at the IGNITION conference that it would launch before the 2012 holiday season. Once it was clear that wasn’t going to happen, he predicted late in 2012 that it would be arriving in time for, yep, you guessed it, the 2013 holiday season. He clung to that one...

Hands On: Cinematica 2 (OS X)

We all have more videos than iTunes Store ones, we all have more videos than we can ever remember getting. They're from our digital cameras, they're from our iPhones, they're Vimeo files we wish we could remember how to download again. However we got them, we have them now, we can't find them very easily and they are all clogging up our hard drives. Plus, we have to to somehow remember that this movie will play in iTunes but that one needs the extra VLC video player.

According to new quarterly figures from industry analysts Gartner, enormous growth by Apple's iPhone has eroded worldwide mobile phone share -- including both smartphones and feature phones -- from top seller Samsung and second-place Nokia, with Apple potentially taking the second spot from Nokia after this quarter's expected record-breaking iPhone sales are announced. For the most recent quarter, Apple was within one percentage point of matching Nokia in a market seeing strong overall growth....

Hands On: Movavi Video Editor (OS X, Windows)

Try as you might, you're not going to revolutionize how video is edited: whatever application you're using, the process has been roughly the same since we ditched celluloid and razor blades. Equally, you're not likely to easily replace Apple's iMovie for ease of use, nor Adobe Premiere and Final Cut Pro X for high-end professionals. Movavi Video Editor, an editor for Windows that has just made the jump to OS X, definitely aims at being very simple to use -- but it's also intended for the ever-growing number of us who just want to quickly get video out to people....

Adam Goldman and Peyton Craighill, writing for The Washington Post, “New Poll Finds Majority of Americans Think Torture Was Justified After 9/11 Attacks”:

A majority of Americans think that the harsh interrogation
techniques used on terrorism suspects after the Sept. 11, 2001,
attacks were justified, even as about half of the public says the
treatment amounted to torture, according to a new Washington
Post-ABC News poll.

By a margin of almost 2 to 1 — 59 percent to 31 percent — those
interviewed said that they support the CIA’s brutal methods, with
the vast majority of supporters saying that they produced valuable
intelligence.

In general, 58 percent say the torture of suspected terrorists can

On Tuesday Apple announced that ten new banks have agreed to work with Apple Pay to offer credit card support. With those additions, plus the recent additions of SunTrust, Barclaycard, and USAA banks, Apple Pay now accepts credit cards that represent about 90 percent of US credit card transaction volume, according to the New York Times.

That number bodes well for Apple and its nascent mobile payment platform that launched in October of this year. The service lets users buy goods at NFC-enabled terminals in brick-and-mortar stores, as well as pay with a single tap in the iTunes store and in other compatible apps.

The challenge for the adoption of mobile payments platforms like Apple Pay and Google Wallet, which debuted three years prior to Apple Pay’s...

Apple wins iPod antitrust lawsuit, avoids potential...

It was a banner day for Apple’s legal department.

Or at least the legal team got to clear out an old and potentially costly lawsuit.

Per 9to5Mac and CNBC, a jury has decided that Apple is not guilty of violating antitrust laws in the decade-old lawsuit involving the iPod, iTunes Music Store, and digital rights management usage. The jury had to determine if the iTunes updates affecting customers’ iPods were “genuine product improvements” with Apple citing security concerns for implementing the usage of DRM.

Had the jury decided Apple did violate antitrust laws through its practices, the company could have been responsible for damages of up to US$1 billion.

However, Apple argued throughout...

Apple ceases online sales in Russia due to extreme...

Bloomberg reported on Tuesday that Apple has ceased all online sales in Russia as the country has been unable to keep its currency from fluctuating dramatically. In the last month, Apple had already increased the price of its iPhone 6 in that country by 25 percent due to currency uncertainties.

“Our online store in Russia is currently unavailable while we review pricing,” Alan Hely, a spokesman for the Cupertino, California-based company, told Bloomberg. “We apologize to customers for any inconvenience.” It is uncertain when Apple will reinstate its operations in Russia.

Bloomberg noted that the Ruble sank 19 percent today, "with a surprise interest-rate increase failing to stem a run on the currency.” At one point during the day, the ruble sank to 80 on the dollar.

A jury decided Tuesday that Apple wasn’t trying to monopolize digital music when it added FairPlay, a digital rights management technology, to songs it
sold on iTunes. The class-action suit against Apple was a decade in the making, but it took jurors just three hours to reach a verdict: Apple wins.

The lawsuit covered iPods purchased between September 2006 and March 2009, when only songs purchased in iTunes—and thereby protected by FairPlay—or
imported from CDs would play on the devices. The jury was asked to decide whether two versions of iTunes, which included iPod firmware that made songs from
rival services incompatible with the devices, were major product improvements or designed specifically to block rival services. One of the iTunes versions
was tossed out of contention, and the jury decided that the other iTunes update did actually...

Apple Wins iTunes DRM Case

An anonymous reader sends word that Apple's iTunes DRM case has already been decided. The 8-person jury took only a few hours to decide that the features introduced in iTunes 7.0 were good for consumers and did not violate antitrust laws. Following the decision, the plaintiff's head attorney Patrick Coughlin said an appeal is already planned. He also expressed frustrations over getting two of the security features — one that checks the iTunes database, and another that checks each song on the iPod itself — lumped together with the other user-facing features in the iTunes 7.0 update, like support for movies and games. "At least we got a chance to get it in front of the jury," he told reporters. ... All along, Apple's made the case that its music store, jukebox software, and hardware was simply an integrated system similar to video game consoles from Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo. It built all those pieces to work together, and thus it would be unusual to expect any one piece from...

Separating the apps allowed the developer to deliver a focused experience that makes each app better on its own.

Bryan Chaffin and John Martellaro join Jeff Gamet to look at the case, the panel's reactions to Apple and the DOJ's arguments, and Judge Denise Cote's original ruling.

News: Apple found not guilty in iPod, iTunes Store...

Apple has been cleared of wrongdoing in the recent antitrust case on iPod and iTunes Store lock-in, The Verge reports. The decade-old class-action lawsuit accused Apple of putting procedures in place in iTunes 7.0 that would remove music found on iPods from competing music services. Apple, for its part, claimed that the measures were simply “extra security” that the company added to its iPod and iTunes platforms in 2006. The lawsuit originally…

Apple not guilty in iPod DRM case

Delivering a unanimous verdict today, the group said Apple’s iTunes 7.0, released in the fall of 2006, was a “genuine product improvement,” meaning that new features (though importantly increased security) were good for consumers. Plaintiffs in the case unsuccessfully argued that those features not only thwarted competition, but also made Apple’s products less useful since customers could not as easily use purchased music or jukebox software from other companies with the iPod.

Good. These stupid lawsuits have to stop.

Although it recently released iOS 8.1.2, and is well into development on iOS 8.2, Apple is also working on an interim v8.1.3 update, web traffic shows. The first hits from v8.1.3 devices appear to have come around December 8th, a day before v8.1.2 went live. Since then the number has increased, but just a "few dozen" have reportedly come from Apple's networks....

A jury has decided that Apple is not guilty of violating antitrust laws in the decade-old lawsuit involving the iPod, iTunes Music Store, and digital rights management usage. The jury had to determine if the iTunes updates affecting customers’ iPods were “genuine product improvements” with Apple citing security concerns for implementing the usage of DRM.

Had the jury decided Apple did violate antitrust laws through its practices, the company could have been...

Jury finds for Apple in iTunes case, throws out...

After just a few hours of deliberation, a jury of eight men and women threw out a long-running lawsuit against Apple that sought more than a billion dollars in damages.

In a verdict handed down a few minutes ago in Oakland federal court, the jury found that Apple's iTunes 7.0 constituted a genuine product improvement. That means it's the end of the case for the plaintiffs, who represented a class of around eight million consumers, as well as iPod resellers like Best Buy and Walmart.

The plaintiffs claimed that iTunes 7.0 included updates that were meant to push out Apple competitors like RealNetworks, which had a competing DRM system called "Harmony." After the 7.0 update, Real's competing DRM system wouldn't work with iPods.

It's surely a testament to the shocking nature of the recent news about Devuan that the Linux blogosphere has been a rather quiet place of late. Yes, there was last week's Turla news, and yes, the holiday season is looming large, likely dampening more than a few spirits. Still, the atmosphere definitely has been subdued down at the blogosphere's seedy Punchy Penguin Saloon, as Linux fans have pondered this dramatic development in the ongoing Systemd saga.

Apple Pay is growing.

Per MacRumors and the New York Times,

With the list of Apple Pay-supported companies growing more every week, Apple has revealed that the new mobile payments service now supports cards representing about 90 percent of the credit card purchase volume in the United States. This is up from the 80 percent figure cited at Apple Pay’s launch just two months ago.

The article states that Apple Pay has grown in popularity with users as the rollout continues. Whole Foods saw more than 150,000 Apple Pay transactions in the first few days after release, and the service accounted for more than 50 percent of McDonald’s tap-to-pay purchases in November....

Ten banks started supporting Apple’s contactless payment solution on Tuesday. Associated Bank, BB&T, Black Hills FCU, Commerce Bank, Dupaco Community Credit Union, First Tennessee Bank, Idaho Central Credit Union, TD Bank North America, UW Credit Union, and WesBanco now allow their customers to pay for purchases with the tap of an iPhone 6 or 6 Plus.

It might not be the most ground breaking promotion to ever exist, but it could come in handy.

Per 9to5Mac, wireless carrier T-Mobile announced its latest Un-carrier initiative on Monday with a new “Data Stash” feature that allows customers to bank unused data and carry it over month-to-month for up to a year.

The carrier is also offering 10 GB free for new and qualifying customers to kick things off, but it notes that the “data does not begin carrying over until after free 10GB runs out.” The free 10GB promotion will last until 12/31/15.

There is no limit to the amount of data users can stash, according to T-Mobile, although data can only be banked for up to a year. T-Mobile’s 200MB Free Data for Life offer for tablet users isn’t eligible for data rollover.

“Can you imagine your gas station siphoning unused gas from your car each month? The US wireless industry is even worse,” said John Legere, president and CEO for T-Mobile. “Americans have been gamed by the carriers into buying huge data plans – all to avoid getting screwed with overage penalties. Only to find out they bought more than they need which is then confiscated by the carrier. For the consumer it’s lose, lose.

On the same day that Apple Pay reached a sign-up rate of 90% of US bank cards by transaction volume, Samsung is reportedly planning to launch a rival mobile payment service that would work with 100% of cards and payment terminals on day one.

Re/code suggests that the company is in talks with LoopPay, a startup which describes itself as “the most accepted mobile wallet on the planet.” Instead of using an NFC chip for contactless payment, LoopPay transmits a magnetic signal which simulates the swiping of the magnetic strip on a card. That means it works with all cards and all payment terminals, contactless or not …

Honor among thieves? Huawei calls its new smartphone...

Huawei today unveiled its latest smartphone at an event in Beijing and naturally the company named the follow up to its previous generation Honor 6 device, the Honor 6 Plus. Creative.

Apart from the name there aren’t many other similarities between the Android-powered Honor 6 Plus and Apple’s iPhone 6 Plus. That is, however, other than the same size 5.5-inch display and the exact same color options (as pictured above). The previous generation Honor 6 sported a 5-inch display. 

The Honor 6 Plus includes a 5.5-inch 1080p LCD, Huawei’s Kirin 925 octa-core chip, up to 32GB of onboard storage, NFC, 3G of RAM, and a 3,600 mAh battery. Its standout feature is dual rear 8-megapixel cameras that allow for a number of camera improvements and new software features over previous...
