Now that Dunfee has had his belatedly given Bronze taken away, I’m amazed. I honestly don’t think I would have reacted as magnanimously or with as much class as Dunfee has over this.

Google Will Kill Chrome Apps For Windows, Mac, and...

An anonymous reader quotes a report from VentureBeat: Google today announced plans to kill off Chrome apps for Windows, Mac, and Linux in early 2018. Chrome extensions and themes will not be affected, while Chrome apps will continue to live on in Chrome OS. Here's the deprecation timeline: Late 2016: Newly published Chrome apps will not be available to Windows, Mac, and Linux users (when developers submit apps to the Chrome Web Store, they will only show up for Chrome OS). Existing Chrome apps will remain available as they are today and developers can continue to update them. Second half of 2017: The Chrome Web Store will no longer show Chrome apps on Windows, Mac, and Linux. Early 2018: Chrome apps will not load on Windows, Mac, and Linux. There appears to be two main reasons why Google is killing Chrome apps off now. First, as Google explains in a blog post: "For a while there were certain experiences the web couldn't provide, such as working offline, sending notifications, and...

Analyst: Apple could team up with a partner (BMW?)...

Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster thinks we’ll see some results of the “Apple Car” project before the 2021 date mentioned by the Wall Street Journal.

“We believe that Apple could release some of its learnings before 2021 as it continues to develop its own car,” he says. “For example, autonomous driving software could come out earlier via an automotive partner or more advanced CarPlay features. In terms of the market, as we’ve previously written, BMW might be the best comp for what Apple could do with the car in a wildly successful long-term scenario.”

BMW sold 1.9 million vehicles worldwide in 2015. At a $75,000 average selling price, hat would represent a $142.5 billion revenue opportunity. The bottom line is that the car, while it could still be scrapped...

Analyst: upcoming MacBook Pro will reignite Mac sales

With a MacBook Pro expected in the next couple of months, RBC Capital Markets analyst Amit Daryanani believes a trend of year-over-year Mac revenue declines in three consecutive quarters is set to reverse. 

He predicts the new MacBook Pros to be available in October or November, following the (anticipated) September release of the “iPhone 7.” The analyst thinks the revved laptop will result inreaccelerated growth. Daryanani maintains an Outperform rating and $117 price target on Apple; the current price is $109.19.

The new pro laptops are expected to be thinner, have a touch screen strip for function keys, and will be offered with more powerful and efficient graphics processors for expert users like video gamers. The touch screen strip will, if rumors are true, be a sort of secondary display above the keyboard and replace the...

Apple has opened up donations to the American Red Cross at iTunes and its app stores to help victims of the flooding in Louisiana.

You can donate in increments of $5, $10, $25, $50, $100, or $200. The full amount of each donation will go to the Red Cross. However, charitable givers can't use any existing iTunes credit.

The flood devastating Louisiana is now the worst natural disaster to strike the United States since Hurricane Sandy four years ago, the Red Cross said (http://www.cnn.com/2016/08/18/us/louisiana-flooding/).

"Thousands of people in Louisiana have lost everything they own and need our help now," said Brad Kieserman, the Red Cross' vice president of disaster services operations and logistics. "This disaster is the worst to hit the United States since Superstorm Sandy, and we anticipate it...

China's Xiaomi Gearing Up For US Debut

An anonymous reader shares a Bloomberg report: Xiaomi is preparing to enter the U.S. smartphone market "in the near future," employing the same online sales and social media marketing tactics that helped the six-year-old startup become China's largest privately funded startup. Xiaomi can no longer afford to ignore the world's largest smartphone arena by revenue, company vice president Hugo Barra said in an interview. Its international expansion is taking on new-found urgency as growth at home slows and rivals such as Huawei erode its market share. "The U.S. is a market that we definitely have in our sights," Barra said on Bloomberg Television. "We will lead with social media, with the channels that allow us to get in touch with the young generation that are enthusiastic about new technology. We are definitely going there." Barra, who oversees the Chinese company's international expansion, has signaled Xiaomi's U.S. debut before. But the smartphone vendor is now in a better position...

Similar to those services, Pandora’s on-demand subscription will cost $10 a month. Pandora’s second paid subscription offering will be an upgraded version of its no-ads radio service, Pandora One, which will give listeners the chance to skip more songs and enable offline listening.

Steve Wozniak: Tim Cook’s doing a good job at Apple

Steve “Woz” Wozniak, Apple's co-founder, says Tim Cook is doing a fine job as the CEO of Apple. 

"I am very happy with the way Apple is going," he said at a media roundtable Wednesday in Singapore as part of Paypal FinTech Xchange 2016. "When Steve Jobs died there was a tendency for a lot of people to say, 'Oh no, Apple has lost a key force and will be in decline and won't be innovative.' I said wait for a couple of years, don't be judgmental.”

Woz was impressed with how Cook and Apple as a whole handled the recent case of the FBI wanting access to an iPhone linked to the San Bernardino shooting case.

“I very much admire Tim Cook for standing up for the privacy of individuals because my whole life, Apple has meant to me a question of who is more important, the human or the technology," he said. “Apple has always favoured the human. We...

There’s a bit of truth to every leak and rumor.

A new leaked image published late Thursday shows what’s purported to to be a redesigned rear camera module for the “iPhone 7,” widely expected to ship in mid- to late September.

The module most notably features an L-shaped flex cable, which is different from the camera cables used for the iPhone 6, 6 Plus and their Plus variants. It otherwise bears similarities to the cameras in the 6 Plus and 6s Plus, however, which may back rumors that all models of the “iPhone 7” will support optical image stabilization.

The optical stabilization feature, which was previously reserved for the Plus models, seems to be present across the whole iPhone 7 line. This feature can significantly reduce...

The CEO of AT&T will announce today that 33 companies including the telecom giant, Apple, Alphabet, Comcast, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon are joining an effort with the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to crackdown on “robocalls,” reports Reuters.

A robocall is a phone call that uses a computerized autodialer to deliver a pre-recorded message, as if from a robot. Robocalls are often associated with political and telemarketing phone campaigns, but can also be used for public-service or emergency announcements. Some robocalls use personalized audio messages to simulate an actual personal phone call.

Compatible with iPhone 5 and later models, CarPlay provides a simplified way to use your iPhone interface on a car’s touch screen, giving users access to Siri voice controls, as well as Apple Maps, Apple Music, Phone, Messages, and a variety of third party apps.

The XAV-AX100 in-car audio system packs a 55 watts x 4 Dynamic Reality Amp 2 and EXTRA BASS low boost circuitry to overcome engine noise and reproduce clear sound at any volume. It also has a 10-band graphic equalizer.

A new report from Nowhereelse (translated link) revealed a leaked photo of a camera sensor purporting to be from the upcoming iPhone. While the report notes that that photo doesn’t reveal anything meaningful about the technical features of the camera, and that without anything comparative in the photo it’s not even possible to estimate the size of the new sensor, it does indicate that the design of the sensor connects have changed and…

WaterField launches Kickstarter campaign for iPhone...

WaterField Designs has launched its first Kickstarter campaign for the RFID-blocking, play-through, Intrepid Travel Wallet for the upcoming “iPhone 7” (and similarly-sized phones). It’s a wallet, an iPhone case and a travel attaché all in one.

It is a wallet, but also functions as an iPhone case and a travel attaché. As a wallet, its two interior side pockets hold credit cards, hotel card-keys and metro tickets and its main compartment is large enough for a stash of domestic or foreign bills and a pen. Built-in RFID-blocking capability offers a little extra security while out and about. An included zippered pouch, the Micro Wallet, fits inside the main compartment and secures coins or keys.

Apple’s Taiwan supplier reportedly fighting back...

According to Digitimes, suppliers in Taiwan are beginning to resist demands for ever-greater discounts from Apple. The article says the Cupertino, California-based company has met resistance from makers in Taiwan's supply chain to lower their quotes for parts and components for the “iPhone 7.”

Digitimes says Apple has asked downstream part and component suppliers, excluding Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) and Largan Precision, to reduce their quotes for iPhone 7 devices by as much as 20% even though order volumes for new phones are reportedly 30% lower than those placed a year earlier.

However, downstream suppliers, notably Advanced Semiconductor Engineering (ASE) and associated companies under the Foxconn Group, have replied Apple that they couldn’t accept orders without reasonable profits.

With the assembly plant as the focus of the supply chain, upstream...

Apple drops ‘Store’ from Apple Store branding

Juli Clover, MacRumors:

Apple appears to be making a slight branding change to its retail business, dropping the “Store” moniker when referring to its Apple Store locations. Apple has already made the change online, and all of its store pages now refer to stores by names like “Apple Union Square” or “Apple Valley Fair” or “Apple The Grove,” instead of “Apple Store, Valley Fair” or “Apple Store, The Grove.”

It’s a change that appears to have started rolling out with the launch of the newer Apple Stores, like the Union Square location in San Francisco. Apple has always referred to that store as just Apple Union Square, and over the course of the last few days, the company has updated all of its retail store webpages to remove the “Store” branding. What was once “Apple Store, Fifth Avenue,” for example, is now just “Apple Fifth Avenue.”

This seems a logical path for Apple, adhering to their simplify-where-possible strategy and their adherence to minimalism. A bit...

Endless features new songs and takes place in the same warehouse where Ocean has been hosting a web stream. The new songs feature contributions from Jonny Greenwood, James Blake, and more.

Driverless cars: When coding decisions determine...

Andrew Leavitt:

Are you familiar with “The Trolley Problem?” It’s an ethical thought experiment with a central moral dilemma.

An observer must decide whether to switch a trolley track when either choice will result in negative consequences for innocent bystanders. If he intervenes more lives are saved [practical] but he has then taken an active role in who lives or dies [immoral]. If he leaves the switch alone he is moral but more lives are certainly lost. There is no unequivocal “right choice” – especially as the scenario becomes more complex.

Interesting post that touches on Aasimov’s three laws of robotics and MIT’s moral machine web experiment.

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), Australia’s anti-trust regulator, says it won’t grant the country's three biggest banks interim approval to collectively negotiate with Apple Inc to install their own electronic payments applications on iPhones, reports Reuters.

Last month those banks, including the top lender, National Australia Bank, e lodged a joint application with anti-trust regulators seeking approval to collectively negotiate with Apple to install their own electronic payments applications on iPhones. 

Apple, which operates its Apple Pay mobile payment service, doesn’t allow third-party electronic payment apps to be installed on the smartphone. The banks are seeking to be able to negotiate jointly for access to Apple's phones without themselves being accused of violating anti-competition law.

The ACCC said that its decision not to...

Reuters:

Australia’s anti-trust regulator on Friday said it would not grant the country’s three biggest banks interim approval to collectively negotiate with Apple Inc to install their own electronic payments applications on iPhones.

Australia’s three biggest banks, including the number one lender National Australia Bank (NAB), last month lodged a joint application seeking permission to negotiate as a bloc from the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC).

The ACCC said that its decision not to grant the banks the interim ruling was not indicative of whether the full ruling, expected in October, would be successful or not.

And:

But Telepaint is an adorable puzzle-platformer with a clever, touch-friendly twist: Instead of furiously tapping your screen to jump, duck, and slide past obstacles, you use a portal system to get your little paint bucket protagonist safely to his paint brush buddy.

iOS and Android Combined for Record 99% of...

Joe Rossignol, writing for MacRumors:

The latest numbers from research firm Gartner reveal that the smartphone industry continues to be a virtual two-horse race between iOS and Android. The operating systems combined for a record 99.1% worldwide market share in the second calendar quarter of 2016, compared to 96.8% in the year-ago period.

That’s amazing to me. Just a bit more than nine years ago, neither company (Apple for iOS, Google for Android) had a horse in this race. And now, everyone else is gone or, at best, window dressing.

Comment: As optical image stabilization seemingly...

Zac made the point yesterday that just because the iPhone 7 is sounding like a second S-year model, that doesn’t mean that mass-market buyers – ‘normals’ – won’t be wowed by it. Apple has an enviable ability to take relatively mainstream features and make them sound magical, and a report by French site NWE seems to make one rumored feature sound more likely.

While the dual-camera system slated for the larger iPhone 7 Plus is an obvious talking point, it’s also been suggested that the smaller model may get the optical image stabilisation (OIS) currently limited to the iPhone 6/6s Plus.

A claimed photo of the camera module for the 4.7-inch iPhone has four slots around it, similar to those...

Twitter: An update on our efforts to combat violent...

Twitter’s blog:

Earlier this year, we announced we had suspended more than 125,000 accounts since mid-2015 for violating our longtime prohibition on violent threats and the promotion of terrorism and shared the steps we are taking as a company to combat this content. Since that announcement, the world has witnessed a further wave of deadly, abhorrent terror attacks across the globe. We strongly condemn these acts and remain committed to eliminating the promotion of violence or terrorism on our platform.

While our work is not done, today we are announcing that we have suspended an additional 235,000 accounts for violating our policies related to promotion of terrorism in the six months since our February 2016 post. This brings our overall number of suspensions to 360,000 since the middle of 2015. As noted by numerous third parties, our efforts continue to drive meaningful results, including a significant shift in this type of activity off of Twitter.

Say what you want about the open market, at least it spurs competition.

Following Wednesday’s announcement as to changes to its mobile plans, wireless carriers T-Mobile and Sprint have announced new “unlimited” plans of their own.

T-Mobile has replaced all its plans with a single one called T-Mobile One.

The Mobile One plan apparent offers the following:

It’s 100% unlimited and comes with unlimited talk and text and unlimited 4G LTE smartphone data – including unlimited standard definition video – all on America’s fastest 4G LTE network. And, it’s available at a great price: just $40 per line for a family of four.

The fine print has the $40 per line rate as being applicable only if you’re buying four lines for $160 a month. Otherwise,...

Rumor: Next-gen Apple Watch to feature GPS, other...

The next-gen Apple Watch may still be somewhat dependent on the iPhone.

Sources have stated that Apple is planning to launch a next-gen Apple Watch this fall with integrated GPS and improvements to health tracking.

Apple shipped its first watch in April 2015, hoping for a new blockbuster product amid slowing iPhone sales, which contribute almost 60 percent of revenue. While the company shipped 1.6 million watches from April to June, that was less than half as many as during the same period in 2015, according to IDC.

Since its inception, wireless network carriers have been urging Apple to create an Apple Watch variant that can connect to data networks without the aid of the iPhone, thereby untethering it. Apple had been in talks this year with...

CrashPlan makes backing up easy, inexpensive

Be honest now: do you back up the data on your Mac? I know a LOT of folks who don't; they're asking for disaster. If you need a simple way to save your data — aside from or, better yet, in addition to Apple's Time Machine feature in Mac OS X — check out CrashPlan from Code 42.

It's a solid online backup service because it offers unlimited storage space (you read that right) and lets you upload files of any size. Setting up CrashPlan is a breeze and can be implemented in three easy steps.

Speaking of "three," Code 42 has three different ways of providing backup. You have the option to back up to local drives and computers, offsite drives and computers or online to CrashPlan Central. You can combine all three, which is what I recommend.

Code 42 addresses data security and privacy concerns by employing a multi-layered security model that includes transmission security, account security (access), password security, encryption security and secure messaging. On the...

You’ll get a charge out of these Ravpower products

Ravpower makes — as you might guess from the company’s name— charging and battery products. It’s released two that will be of interest to Mac users, especially those of us who own 12-inch MacBooks.

Ravpower’s $15.99 10400mAh Portable Power Bank boasts a 3.5A output that lets you quickly charge tablets and smartphones at the same time. I use it to charge my iPhone 6s Plus and 12.9-inch iPad Pro. The Portable Power Bank’s 2A input takes less time (almost 50%) to charge itself compared to traditional 1A chargers.

iSmart charging technology on both ports automatically detects and delivers the optimal charging current to match connected devices. For example, it delivers a 1A charging out for phones that have 1A charging input. The Portable Power Bank’s 10400 mAh capacity can, for example, charge an iPhone 6s Plus three to four times and an iPad mini once before you...
