Apple will return heat generated by data center to...

Apple is building a new data center in Denmark, and it has some interesting ideas on how to power the data center with renewable energy, while also giving back to the community.

Excess heat generated by the data center will be captured and returned to the local district's heating system, which will warm up homes in the community.

The data center in the Jutland region will be partly powered by recycling waste products from farms. Apple is working with Aarhus University on a system that passes agricultural waste through a digester to generate methane, which is then used to power the data center.

The digester reaction turns some of the waste into nutrient-rich fertilizer, which Apple returns to local farmers to use on their fields. It's a "mutually beneficial relationship," Apple said in its environment report for 2016, released this week.

Today Apple released its Environmental Responsibility Report (PDF) for the 2016 fiscal year, detailing the progress of the company's environmental initiatives and laying out some of its goals for the future. Apple remains committed to reducing its carbon footprint (down 23 percent from 2015), pushing its suppliers to use renewable energy (96 percent of Apple's own global facilities are renewable energy-powered), investing in wind and solar power, and in reducing the energy used to create its products and the energy the products...

Apple is up to something in Hollywood

Heartfelt shout-outs to Tim Cook from the Emmys and Oscars stages — how would that sound? Or lest we get too ahead of ourselves, how about a title card that reads “Apple Films” or “An Apple Original Series” in front of your favorite new movie or TV show?

It all has a bit of a ring to it, right?

This is a fascinating read. We all know that Apple is interesting in expanding into video, but they are going to have to do something more than a series featuring Dre or Planet of the Apps if they want to be serious about it.

Tip of the Day: Filtering Explicit Language in Siri

If you’ve got kids at home with their own iPad or iPod touch, it won’t be long before they figure out that they can have a chat with Siri, and unfortunately while Siri’s voice recognition is pretty good, it can’t always keep up with the developing language skills of a young child. So it’s not surprising that sometimes Siri won’t quite be able to accurately transcribe what they’re trying to say, but sometimes…

Apple sets a new environmental goal: No more mining

Apple never used to announce what its roadmap looked like. Instead, the company held its cards close and let the rumor mill run amok. But lately, Apple is being much more open about its future. Expect new iMacs later this year, company executives said earlier this month, but that’s not all: Apple plans to make all of its products with recycled materials.

Apple’s developer website now offers info on a Live Photos API [application programming interface] dubbed LivePhotosKit building apps for macOS, iOS and tvOS. Developer can also use the LivePhotosKit JS library to play Live Photos on web pages.

The JavaScript API presents the player in the form of a DOM element, much like an image or video tag, which can be configured with photo and video resources and other options, and have its playback controlled either programmatically by the consuming developer, or via pre-provided controls by the browsing end-user. The DOM is the way Javascript sees its containing pages' data.

Live Photos records what happens 1.5 seconds before and after you take a picture. The result is a photo but one with movement and sound. You take a Live Photo just like you do a traditional photo on an iPhone 6s and later.

Apple has uploaded four videos to its YouTube channel ahead of Earth Day (April 22) featuring Apple employees and executives explaining the company’s environmental initiatives.

In “Do Farms Feed Yaks?,” Lisa Jackson, Apple’s lead on Environment work, gives a crash course on how the company’s 40-megawatt solar farms in China produce enough electricity for all of Apple’s offices and retail stores in the country—and grass to feed yaks.

In “Can We Produce Zero Waste?”, Jackson explains Apple’s solar policy that allows for dual and use on farms. In “Can A Building Breathe,” John Reynolds, in charge of iPhone Product Operations, looks at Apple’s goal of no waste and how it reuses old iPhone assembly trays. In “Why Does Apple Make Its Own Sweat?,” Apple's Head of Environmental Technologies Rob Guzzo explains how Apple produces artificial sweat to test the Apple Watch and AirPods.

Apple unveils Live Photos API

When Apple released the iPhone 6s in 2015, the company also introduced Live Photos, a picture that, when you tap it on your iPhone, becomes a 1.5 second video clip. It’s a fun feature, but it has limitations. It’s not easy to post a Live Photo on the web, for example.

Nearly two years after Live Photos made its debut, Apple has finally revealed the Live Photo API. The API makes it easier for developers to post Live Pictures to the web or to add Live Pictures support in an app.

The limited edition, neutral-toned Apple Watch NikeLab maintains the features of its predecessor: deep integration with the Nike+ Run Club app, exclusive Siri commands, GPS, a two-times-brighter display and water resistance to 50 meters, all made possible by a powerful dual-core processor and watchOS 3. Apple Watch NikeLab — with a NikeLab Innovation x Innovators logo stamped inside — will be available April 27 on nike.com, at NikeLab doors and at an Apple Tokyo pop-up in Isetan.

Apple replaced the glass cube once before, back in 2011, when it was able to reduce the number of glass panes from 90 to just 15, resulting in a much cleaner look. But this time we’ve learned that the replacement cube may not look any different to the existing one …

Apple invention would facilitate an AR navigation...

Apple has applied for a patent (number 20170109929) for a “method and device for illustrating a virtual object in a real environment” that would allow the representation of a digital object in a real environment. The tech giant says this would be useful for augmented reality (AR) applications such as in vehicles, in interior design planning, factory planning, prototype construction or test construction in product development. 

One possible use of the invention is the change of a real room, for example in order to place virtual furnishings in said room for which free space is required. An advantage of augmented reality technology is the viewing of objects in their real environment — for example, the viewing of a wooden table on an existing wooden floor or in front of an existing cabinet. You could virtually remove spurious real furniture pieces from a scene or to change their position in the room without having to clear them aside physically.

The article adds that the smart connector will also be used for charging, sort of like MagSafe for the iPhone. 

The Sellers Research Firm (that’s me) says this isn’t going to happen. I do think the next gen iPhone will have AR features and a smart connector, but I don’t think Apple has any plans for AR/VR headsets at this point in time. Instead, I think the iPhone 8 will have AR features available directly from its display.

China To Question Apple About Live-Streaming Apps On...

Three Chinese government agencies are planning to tell Apple to "tighten up checks" on live-streaming software offered on its app store, which can be used to violate internet regulation in the country. "Law enforcement officers had already met with Apple representatives over live-streaming services, [state news agency Xinhua reported], but did not provide details of the meetings," reports The Guardian. From the report: The inquiry appears to be focused on third-party apps available for download through Apple's online marketplace. The company did not respond to requests for comment. China operates the world's largest internet censorship regime, blocking a host of foreign websites including Google, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, but the authorities have struggled to control an explosion in popularity of live-streaming video apps. As part of the inquiry into live-streaming, three Chinese websites -- toutiao.com, huoshanzhibo.com and huajiao.com -- were already found to have violated...

Don’t get your hopes up for an Apple Car just yet (...

Don’t get your hopes up yet that Apple is making its own auto from scratch. Forbes reported Wednesday that — as I’ve suspected — the tech giant seems to be more interested in developing apps for self-driving cars than the cars themselves.

Apple Car rumors revived when it was reported that the California Department of Motor Vehicles had granted permits for Apple to test autonomous cars in California. However, Forbes says that those vehicles are three 2015 Lexus RX 450h hybrid SUVs. Industry analysts say the fact that only three vehicles are involved suggests the company is focusing on its CarPlay connectivity and infotainment...

Apple commits to 100% recycled materials; Greenpeace...

Apple has announced its major new commitment to tackle the environmental impact caused by electronics production, becoming the first major IT company to commit to using 100% recycled materials for its products. In response to the announcement, Greenpeace Senior IT Analyst Gary Cook had this to say:

“Apple’s commitment to 100% recycled materials is ambitious, and highlights the need for greater urgency across the sector to reduce resource consumption and e-waste that are causing significant impacts on the environment and human health.  Transitioning to non-virgin raw materials will help to decrease the demand for mined metals and other inputs, and increase recycling rates of electronics directly.

“This commitment, and Apple’s recent progress in transitioning its supply chain in Asia to renewable energy, puts it far ahead of others in the sector. Major IT brands such as Samsung, Huawei, and Microsoft should quickly match Apple’s leadership, if they don’t want risk...

Patent trollin’: Acacia sues Apple (again)

Another day, another lawsuit. Chronic suer Acacia Research’s Cellular Communications Equipment subsidiary is suing Apple and other cellular partners for allegedly infringing on four patents developed by Nokia covering messaging, emergency alerts and other key cellular technologies, reports AppleInsider.

Filed in the lawsuit capital of the world, Eastern District Court of Texas, the Cellular Communications Equipment suit targets a number of technologies, including emergency calls, text messaging, and more. In addition to Apple, AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile and Boost Mobile are defendants in the case.

Apple Music nabs exclusive rights to Clive David...

Apple has secured the exclusive rights to Clive Davis: The Soundtrack of Our Lives, based on Davis' 2013 bestselling autobiography and made in conjunction with The IM Global and Scott Free Productions, reports Billboard.

The documentary premiered on Wednesday at the opening of the Tribeca Film Festival at Radio City Music Hall. It will stream exclusively on Apple Music.

“Apple is a global innovator that has revolutionized the distribution of music,” said Davis in a statement. “It is a touching honor to share the music and unique stories that have shaped my career with millions of Apple Music subscribers around the world. I am overjoyed to work with them to continue this incredible journey!”

Davis is an American record producer, A&R executive and music industry executive. He has won five Grammy Awards and is...

Apple Maps update, now includes EV charging stations...

It’s a quiet update, but this could be useful.

Apple on Wednesday updated its Apple Maps data, including EV charging stations and bicycle rental/dropoff points, focusing most of its expanded coverage in Europe.

For U.K. users, electric car drivers can now locate charging stations via data from Moovility. The public bicycle information currently covers London and Paris, and one U.S. city, New York.

Apple first began identifying EV chargers in Maps in July 2016, as a result of a deal with Parkopedia. That improved further with the addition of ChargePoint stations in December.

The Maps application can now locate bike rental outlets, although Google Maps is thought to have the advantage in this regard, the service featuring pickup and dropoff locations in several countries.

Future enhancements may include indoor mapping and better car navigation, as well as more regular content updates thanks to drones.

Stay tuned for additional details as...

New Apple Park footage emerges, shows finishing...

With Apple set to start moving employees into its new Apple Park campus come May, new drone footage from Duncan Sinfield shows construction workers putting the finishing touches on both the interior and exterior of the building.

The footage also shows progress being made on planting trees and other greenery across the 175 acre Cupertino campus.

The video also shows a close look at some of the parking amenities at Apple Park, and there’s expected to be a lot of it. The Steve Jobs Theater is also featured with a closeup and overhead view.

The video concludes with footage of Apple Park glowing in the dark, showing that work continues from dawn to dusk to get Apple Park ready for employees. The nighttime footage also shows just how big and bright Apple Park is already, and it will only seem bigger once construction is complete and all the lights are turned on.

As always, let us know what you make of the footage in the comments.

Apple May Be Getting Its Innovation Groove Back


Apple reportedly has begun testing a premium iPhone with a revamped display and body, which could be one of three new models the company is expected to launch this fall. The other two likely will be upgrades to the two existing iPhones. The new design will incorporate curved glass and stainless steel. It will increase the surface area of the display without increasing the size of the phone. "The three-phone rumor has been a consistent rumor over time," observed Kevin Krewell, a principal analyst at Tirias Research.

Google may build ad-blocking into Chrome

Google makes a lot of money from online advertisements. In what appears to be a surprising move at first glance, the company is likely to introduce an ad blocking feature that could be turned on by default in desktop and mobile versions of its Chrome browser, according to a news report.

The move by Google is seen as more defensive rather than a change of heart by the company on the issue of ad blockers, reported The Wall Street Journal, citing people familiar with the company’s plans.

By bundling its own ad blocker as a feature in Chrome, the most popular browser according to Net Market Share, the company appears to be expecting users to use the default blocker rather than the blockers that have proliferated on the market. It will then allow only certain acceptable ads to be shown, according to the Journal, which...

Facebook wants people to type from their brain and...

Facebook revealed Wednesday that it is working on technology to let people type straight from their brains at 100 words per minute.

A team of over 60 scientists, engineers and others at its secretive Building 8 research lab are working in the area Facebook describes as silent speech communications. Another project is directed at allowing people to hear with their skin, for which the company is building the necessary hardware and software.

“So what if you could type directly from your brain?” Regina Dugan, vice president of engineering and Building 8, asked Wednesday at F8, Facebook’s annual two-day developer conference.

For Facebook, the question seems to be far from speculative. “Over the next 2 years, we will be building systems that demonstrate the capability to type at 100 wpm by decoding neural activity devoted to speech,” Dugan...

The Tenda AV1000 is a useful, easy-to-install...

Nothing beats a wired connection when you need (or simply want) a really fast network connection. That means either cutting into walls or usingPowerline Communication such as found in the Tenda AV1000 Gigabit Powerline Adapter.

Powerline Communication (PLC) is a communication technology that enables sending data over existing power cables. This means that, with just power cables running to an electronic device, for example, one can both power it up and at the same time control/retrieve data from it in a half-duplex manner.

With a Powerline network adapter kit, such as the Tenda AV1000 (about $60 for the Starter Kit), you buy a basic kit, which comes with two Powerline adapters and two Ethernet cables. You connect one of the Ethernet cables (mine is one from Comcast) to your router and to the first of the adapters. Then you plug it into the nearest power socket. You click the second Ethernet cable...

Qualcomm Collected Partial iPhone Royalties Despite...

From a report: Qualcomm continued to collect some royalties for Apple's use of its wireless technology in iPhones last year despite dueling lawsuits between the two mobile giants, cheering Qualcomm investors who feared that the payments had entirely dried up. Qualcomm said on Wednesday that Apple's contract manufacturers including Foxconn paid royalties, although they withheld around $1 billion from the undisclosed total amount due. The amount withheld equaled the amount Qualcomm withheld from Apple last year under a separate agreement to cooperate on mobile technology that has since expired.

Hands-on: eGPU enclosure + GTX 1080 Ti w/ MacBook...

After last week’s exciting release of Nvidia’s beta Pascal drivers for Mac, I was looking forward to trying the top of the line consumer GPU with my MacBook Pro. That GPU is none other than the venerable GeForce GTX 1080 Ti — a $700 card with 11 Gbps of GDDR5X memory and a 11 GB frame buffer. Needless to say this card is one that will interest those looking to push their games to the next level.

I took the time to install my EVGA GTX 1080 Ti FE inside of my Akitio Node external GPU enclosure. After connecting the unit to my 2016 MacBook Pro via a Thunderbolt 3 cable, all it took was a simple Terminal script and a reboot to get the unit working with a (required in macOS) external display.

Nvidia’s drivers are still in beta, and from my hands-on time, the experience is far from perfect in macOS. That said, you can most certainly...

“Climate change is undeniable. Earth’s resources won’t last forever. And technology must be safe for people to make and use. We don’t question these realities — we challenge ourselves to ask what we can do about them in every part of our business.”
