Twitter rolls out night mode in its iOS app

Now it’s easier for iPhone users to tweet past their bedtimes.

On Monday, Twitter added a night mode feature to its iOS app. When night mode is activated, the Twitter interface changes to darker hues so that Tweets are easier to read in low light, when you don’t want to be squinting at a bright white screen. The feature was originally introduced in Twitter’s Android app back in July.

Rolling out today – we’re bringing night mode to iOS!

Steve Wozniak Says Apple Must Fix iPhone 7 Bluetooth...

We've talked extensively about the missing headphone jack on the upcoming iPhone. While some say that the move will ruin user experience -- something that has already started to seem that way in the real world -- a few argue that someone needs to push the needle to move the technology forward. Now Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak has something to say about the missing legacy audio jack as well. He is asking Apple to fix the Bluetooth first if the company intends to give users to move to wireless headphones. From a Financial Review report: Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak has warned Apple is going to frustrate a lot of customers if it removes the headphone jack from the upcoming iPhone 7. [...] Customers wanting to use their existing, wired earbuds and headphones might have to buy an adaptor that attaches to the iPhone's Lightning port, or to whatever port does remain on the phone. "If it's missing the 3.5mm earphone jack, that's going to tick off a lot of people," Mr Wozniak told The...

iFixIt: a ‘whole bunch’ of iPhone 6 and 6 Pluses are...

According to the folks at iFixIt, repair experts from all over the world are reporting a widespread problem killing iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus devices: an unresponsive touchscreen and a gray, flickering bar at the top of the display. 

Even though the “Touch Disease” issue manifests in the display and touchscreen, replacing those components won’t fix the problem. The gray bar eventually shows up on the new screen, because the problem isn’t actually the screen at all. It’s the two touchscreen controller chips on the logic board inside the phone.

There are pages of complaints on Apple’s support forums on this issue, but at this point it appears that Apple doesn’t have a fix for the problem—aside from selling owners another phone. 

iFixIt says Apple’s in-store repair techs aren’t equipped to make repairs to the logic board. Reportedly, third-party, “unauthorized” microsoldering specialists are able...

It has the inductive charging disc built in, so there’s no need to mess around with yours or hide the cable inside the casing. The GoPower, which can be held in the palm of your hand, can also charge an iPhone along with your iPad. 

The LED indicator displays battery levels and charge status. And your watch lays flat on the charger, allowing you to use its touchscreen and other features while charging.

Lyft: We’re not seeking a buyer

“Lyft is not seeking a buyer,” Zimmer told Business Insider.

“Getting approached and then having it characterized as us wanting to sell the business and failing to do so is a large mischaracterization,” he said. “If the company is approached, it doesn’t mean the company is looking.”

Lyft President John Zimmer said he was approached to sell the company and the media said they had been unsuccessful in finding a buyer. If true, that’s a pretty big mistake from the media organizations.

‘Paste’ names the Apple Watch as the runner-up for ‘...

The Apple Watch was the runner-up in the “Overall Best Smartwatch” category by Paste Magazine. Here’s what the mag had to say about the Apple smartwatch: 

“The iPhone wasn’t the first smartphone and the iPad wasn’t the first tablet—Apple’s never been about being first. But it’s also safe to say that a competitor like Android wasn’t around when those products first hit the market. Winning the smartwatch wars won’t be nearly as easy, and though neither watchOS or Android Wear are as developed as they need to be, the ambitious nature of the Apple Watch is certainly promising.

“Despite not being round, it’s still an incredibly well-built and attractive watch. Rumors are pointing toward a forthcoming price cut, so you may want to wait for that. The sequel to the Apple Watch probably won’t be due for at least a few more months...

Administrative Law Judge David Shaw of the U.S. Patent and Trade Office (USPTO) has ruled that Creative Technology's patent that addresses music library navigation and sorting in the iPod, and now iOS overall, was too abstract to be eligible for a patent.

Recode: Amazon’s cheaper, Echo-only music service

Recode:

Amazon wants to launch a music subscription service that would work the same way services from Apple, Spotify and many others work: $10 a month, for all the music you can stream, anywhere you want to stream it.

But Amazon is also working on a second service that would differ in two significant ways from industry rivals: It would cost half the price, and it would only work on Amazon’s Echo hardware.

Industry sources say Amazon would like to launch both services in September, but has yet to finalize deals with major music labels and publishers. One sticking point, sources say, is whether Amazon will sell the cheaper service for $4 or $5 a month.

I can’t imagine a music service that I could only use in one place. One of the things I love about Apple Music is that it is always with me: on my computer, on my iPhone, iPad, in my car, always available.

I like the idea of a cheaper service, that might move me, but only if I didn’t have to...

Apple acquires personal health data startup Gliimpse

Fast Company:

Silicon Valley-based Gliimpse has built a personal health data platform that enables any American to collect, personalize, and share a picture of their health data.

And:

The acquisition happened earlier this year, but Apple has been characteristically quiet about it. The company has now confirmed the purchase, saying: “Apple buys smaller technology companies from time to time, and we generally do not discuss our purpose or plans.”

And this from founder Anil Sethi’s LinkedIn page:

Apple files for — and is granted — lots of patents by the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office. Many are for inventions that never see the light of day. However, you never can tell which ones will materialize in a real product, so here are today’s patent highlights:

Once I had installed it and was poking around to see whether it had installed anything new – perhaps a shiny new piece of adware, for example – I discovered an odd app, named Mac File Opener, tucked away where the average user would never see it.

Apple’s OLED display is said to be due in 2017 and will appear on the premium model.

The rumored OLED unit, which is thought to be coming on the high end of the three next-gen iPhones due next year, is thought to be headed to the 5.5-inch-or-larger unit. The display will be curved at the edges while the other two models are said to be 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch models with flat LCD displays like the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, corroborating previous reports.

The report reiterates that Samsung is expected to be Apple’s primary supplier of OLED displays, but it may be unable to fully keep up with demand for both iPhones and its own Galaxy smartphones. Recognizing the opportunity, Apple manufacturer Foxconn has been developing glass casings and OLED displays over the past...

The study found that 90% of music streamers have listened to or created a playlist. Paid or “premium” subscribers were the most active, with eight in 10 listening to their service every day and half listening to a playlist every time that they use the service to stream music. Among those who listened to service’s playlist, nine out of ten had also created a personal playlist in the past three months.

Meridan Explorer USB DAC improves your overall...

Digital media is a wonderful thing, but it has limitations, including sound. Enter the $299 Merdian Explorer USB DAC.

The main purpose of a DAC (digital to analog converter) is to convert the input of any digital source (such as your Mac) to an analog signal that can be fed into an amplifier or active loudspeakers. A DAC device also works with headphones and designated computer speakers. The result is an efficient external amp and elimination of any computer noise.

About the size of a USB stick, the Meridian Explorer replaces -- or, rather, overrides -- your computer’s sound card. It sports a headphone amplifier with on-board analogue volume control. All this to say: it makes the audio output on your Mac sound better in every instance.

How? Audiophile music-grade electrolytic capacitors decouple the analogue audio stages, enhancing the sound quality. A big proportion...

If you need a high quality capsule microphone, Marshall Electronics' MXL AC-404 USB provides excellent voice quality on conference calls at a reasonable price (about $90). If you take advantage of free or subscription Internet conferencing services such as FaceTime or Skype, it's worth a look.

The AC-404 conference mic uses boundary microphone technology and built-in custom circuitry. It has a "sports car-ish" design that boasts 180 degree coverage and a 40Hz-16Hz frequency response. It's not exactly tiny, but it's small enough that you could toss it in a bag and carry it with you when you're on the road.

The AC-404 is USB powered and will interface with Mac and Windows computers without the need for any special drivers. For the best results, you should plug it directly into your computer rather than a hub as USB hubs can interfere with the performance.

The MXL mic includes a headphone jack that works just...

The world's top smartphone maker will refurbish high-end phones returned to the company by users who signed up for one-year upgrade programs in markets such as South Korea and the United States. Samsung would then re-sell these phones at a lower price, the person said, declining to be identified as the plan was not yet public. The person declined to say how big a discount the refurbished phones would be sold at, which markets the phones would be sold in or how many refurbished devices Samsung could sell. It was not clear to what extent the phones would be altered, but refurbished phones typically are fitted with parts such as a new casing or battery.

Earlier this year, Apple acquired Gliimpse, a startup with a platform for securely collecting, managing, and sharing private health records. According to Fast Company, this was the first acquisition made by Apple’s digital health team.

Apple today released the seventh developer preview of macOS Sierra since showing off the software update for the Mac at WWDC 2016. The latest release is available now through the Mac App Store. macOS Sierra’s headlining feature is Siri on the Mac with other features like Auto-Unlock which lets Apple Watch users skip the password login screen. Apple Pay is also coming to Safari with macOS Sierra, although we haven’t seen the feature live on the web yet.

Review: Audeze EL-8 Titanium Over-Ear Headphones

Audeze is an American headphone company with an impressive history of technical innovation. Recently, we were impressed by their entry-level Sine, which packed planar magnetic drivers into a classy, portable package and made us feel a little more confident about a future without headphone jacks. Based on our experience with the Sine, we excited to receive Audeze’s mid-range closed-back headphone, the EL-8 Titanium ($799). Though the EL-8 "Ti" shows many of the forward-thinking design elements that make us fans of Audeze, the complete package failed to capture our hearts and minds.{/exp:char_limit}

X-Doria Mesh Band for 42mm Apple Watch: Review and...

The black X-Doria Mesh Band on Steve's hairy wrist. Photo ©2016, Steven Sande

As an early adopter of the Apple Watch, the $149 - $199 Milanese Loop watchband always called to me...but my wallet was smart and wouldn't listen to me. Fortunately, accessory manufacturer X-Doria has come out with the new X-Doria Mesh Band for the 42mm Apple Watch at a much more affordable US$49.99 price tag. Check out this short review of the Mesh Band, then enter to win a silver X-Doria Mesh Band.

Like Apple's Milanese Loop, the X-Doria Mesh Band comes in two different finishes; black and silver. It uses the standard Apple Watch band mechanism to easily install the band on the Watch in seconds with no tools, and it uses a strong magnet as a closure to tighten the loop around your wrist.

Compared to the two...

Memories… light the corners of AI… misty programmed memories… of how to say my name…

Barbra Streisand has already given us so much. Some of the best chick flicks of all time, like The Prince of Tides and oh my God, The Way We Were. The term “Streisand effect.” Fifty studio albums. A fun new way to spell Barbara.

And now she’s getting Apple to fix Siri.

Well, a small part of Siri anyway. And she’s even told us when it’s supposedly happening: in an iOS update allegedly coming September 30.

Rumor: Apple will introduce an iPhone with a curved...

Apple will debut three new iPhone models next year, presumably the “iPhone 8” and “iPhone 8 Plus,” as well as a third model that will sport a curved OLED screen similar to the Edge versions of Samsung's Galaxy phones, claims the Japanese site, Nikkei (as noted by AppleInsider).

The “premium” handset will be 5.5 inches, perhaps larger, and have a screen bent on two sides. Nikkei didn't specifically mention OLED technology, but making a curved screen effectively requires it; the Galaxy S7 Edge uses a Super AMOLED panel, notes AppleInsider.

The prediction lines up with a July forecast by KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who thinks a 2017 iPhone will have a curved glass body and will switch from current models’ LCD displays to an OLED display. The latter will make it more flexible and...

The performing acts haven’t yet been named. Last year Pharrell Williams, One Direction, Florence + The Machine and Disclosure, Mumford & Sons, Carrie Underwood and Ellie Goulding, and others performed.

Residents of the UK can win tickets to the gigs. Apple Music members around the world can watch the performances for free. Ticket applications will be opening soon, Apple says. You can follow @AppleMusic on Twitter and Snapchat for up-to-the-minute information and join the #AMF10 conversation.

Originally known as the iTunes Festival, the event started at London’s Institute of Contemporary Arts in 2007, and has seen over 550 artists perform in front of more than half a million fans and tens of millions more online and on-demand. Past performers include Adele, Beck, Coldplay,...

There were three stories that caught my eye last week that I think deserve some additional discussion. One is the alleged robbery of U.S. Olympians followed by questions of whether it really happened because their phones weren't stolen. There may be a legitimate reason for that, and it suggests a lot of folks will be getting huge cellphone bills next month. Another eye-catching story is that Ford is getting out of the car business. The third is an NSA leak that has me wondering if we should reclassify the NSA as a criminal organization.

Enlarge

Those of us with difficult last names are accustomed to quietly bearing the indignities of constant mispronunciation, especially from digital assistant programs like Apple's Siri. My last name (Geuss) is pronounced "Gice," but that pronunciation is so far from being phonetically logical in English that if people get close—calling me Guess or Goose—I generally don't correct them. Siri insists on calling me "Megan Juice," which is not even close (and is also a beverage). I let it slide. After all, what recourse do I have?

None. That's how much recourse I have. But I am no Barbra Streisand.

Apple, Samsung Capture All Of Industry's...

Continuing to operate on razor thin margins, smartphone manufacturers other than Samsung and Apple are bleeding money. Apple accounted for 75 percent of the smartphone's profits in the second quarter this year, down from 90 percent a year ago, according to Canaccord Genuity. Samsung, which has reported strong sales thanks to its Galaxy S7 series of smartphones, accounted for more than 30 percent of the industry, the research added. ZDNet reports: While this tale could revolve around Apple vs. Samsung the larger question is this: Why would any company want to make smartphones? Let's get real. All the profits go to Apple (high end) or Samsung (high end and scale). The rest of the players in the market don't make money and get disrupted by whatever vendor is flavor of the month? Remember that Xiaomi was supposed to be the next big thing in China and elsewhere, but is now being disrupted by Oppo and Vivo.
