Comment: I’m wondering whether even Apple could pull...

We’ve now heard more than one report that, while Apple has augmented reality plans for the iPhone, it is also planning to make some smart glasses further down the line. This is the product category made famous – or perhaps infamous – by Google Glass.

There are two undeniable facts about Google Glass. First, it’s cool technology. Second, it’s decidedly uncool to be seen wearing them. It was that latter fact that led to Google abandoning plans to pitch them as a consumer device and to target them instead at enterprise applications, like...

Apple has paid no taxes in New Zealand for 10 years

Apple NZ has paid no taxes within New Zealand, and has instead been paying the amount due to the Australian Taxation Office (ATO). According to the New Zealand Herald, Apple NZ has paid nothing in taxes to the New Zealand Inland Revenue Department for the last 10 years despite making sales worth around $4.2 billion since 2007.

According to the ATO's 2014-15 Corporate Tax Transparency report, Apple paid AU$146 million in tax, more than double the AU$72 million it paid a year earlier.

Under Australia's new multinational tax anti-avoidance laws -- implemented as part of the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) recommendations stemming from its G20-commissioned base erosion and profit-shifting (BEPS) project -- as of July 2016, companies operating in Australia that have an annual global income of more than AU$1 billion are required to...

Apple users in Korea are feeling no love after the Cupertino, California-based company decided to make heavy investments in China while mostly ignoring Korea, according to The Korea Times.

The company has yet to open an Apple Store for consumer service, not to mention an R&D facility in the country. And while Apple has 40 stores in China, it has yet to open one in Korea, although it reportedly plans a retail establishment in souther Seoul.

Open source ‘Giovanni’ emulator prototype brings...

If you’ve checked the App Store lately via the Apple Watch app, then you’re likely aware of how limited the gaming library is on watchOS. Developer Gabriel O’Flaherty-Chan’s prototype Game Boy emulator is looking to help the cause by making a library of Nintendo games available on Apple Watch.

The emulator, named Giovanni after a Pokémon villain, is open source and available for developers to explore on GitHub. As you might expect, being a prototype it can be a bit slow and sluggish, but it’s still an impressive feat when you consider the limited nature of the Apple Watch hardware and software. more…

Apple’s next big thing: Augmented Reality

Mark Gurman, writing for Bloomberg:

Investors impatient for Apple’s next breakthrough will be happy to know that Cook is very serious about AR. People with knowledge of the company’s plans say Apple has embarked on an ambitious bid to bring the technology to the masses—an effort Cook and his team see as the best way for the company to dominate the next generation of gadgetry and keep people wedded to its ecosystem.

Apple has built a team combining the strengths of its hardware and software veterans with the expertise of talented outsiders, say the people, who requested anonymity to discuss internal strategy. Run by a former Dolby Laboratories executive, the group includes engineers who worked on the Oculus and HoloLens virtual reality headsets sold by Facebook and Microsoft as well as digital-effects wizards from Hollywood. Apple has also acquired several small firms with knowledge of AR hardware, 3D gaming and virtual reality software.

A Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign has launched for Transcendent Designs’ Superscreen, a display that turns an iOS and Android smartphone into a 10.1-inch Full HD tablet with 2560 x 1600 2K display. Contributions cost $99, which is 67% off the expected retail price of $299. 

Transcendent Designs are looking to raise at least $50,000. Founder Brent Morgan tells Apple World Today that the Superscreen provides full control of people’s smartphones on a “4x larger and better, full HD 10.1-inch display.” It connects directly to a user’s phone via a secure, private connection. Morgan says there are no file transfers, no clouds, no wires and no contracts.

The campaign will run until April 19. Morgan says shipping starts in December, although “pilot units” will be sent to early backers in September. Backers can choose between two colors: midnight black and ivory white.

Disney Magic Kingdoms swaps the magic for monotony

Free-to-play games often look appealing, but it’s difficult to know at a glance whether the business model is insidious and fun ruining, or reasonable and worth pumping a few bucks into. With Freemium Field Test, we’ll take a recent free-to-play iOS game, put it through its paces, and let you know if it’s really worth your time (and money).

I have a four-year-old son who happily flips out every time we see a Walt Disney World commercial on TV, so I’ve spent the last year grimacing at the thought of how much money we’ll have to shell out to bring him there. It’s mind-numbing, but I know it’ll be worth it.

Netflix is testing a button for skipping the opening...

Why not? This is just the tip of the iceberg. Why not add in tech that lets us speed up a video, dropping duplicated frames when a camera shot stays in place for an extended period, or when a transition from scene to scene is overly slow? How about a smart button that lets us jump from scene to scene to more accurately find a specific spot in a movie?

For purists, this is anathema. I get it. But the beauty of adding tech like this is, you can easily just ignore it. It’s not the same as the difference between a director’s cut and one cut for commercial TV. Those are different as night and day and there’s nothing you can do to convert the cut up version to the original.

I applaud the layering of AI in this space. Bring it on. Just be sure I can disable any add-ons and watch the content in its original form.

WebMD — a provider of health information services — and Scripps Translational Science Institute (STSI) have announced a new investigative study designed to improve researchers’ and health care professionals’ understanding of what contributes to healthy pregnancies and positive pregnancy outcomes. 

The Healthy Pregnancy Study will use WebMD’s newly redesigned and enhanced Pregnancy app for iPhone; it’s available at the Apple App Store. Incorporation of the Apple ResearchKit software framework will enable survey participants to eConsent, easily and anonymously answer questions, and share connected device data about their pregnancies with researchers for analysis, says Dr. Eric Topol, director of STSI and editor-in-chief of Medscape. 

Participants in the Healthy Pregnancy Study will be asked to share information about their medication use, vaccinations they may have received during pregnancy, pre-existing conditions,...

Apple has built an augmented reality (AR) team of hundreds of engineers “combining the strengths of its hardware and software veterans with the expertise of talented outsiders” and is “very serious about AR,” reports Bloomberg, quoting unnamed “people with knowledge of the company’s plans.”

Run by a former Dolby Laboratories executive (Mark Rockwell), the group purportedly includes engineers who worked on the Oculus and HoloLens virtual reality headsets sold by Facebook and Microsoft “as well as digital-effects wizards from Hollywood.” Among them,: Cody White, former lead engineer of Amazon's Lumberyard virtual reality platform; Duncan McRoberts, Meta's former director of software development; Yury Petrov, a former Oculus researcher; and Avi Bar-Zeev, who worked on the HoloLens and Google Earth. Apple has rounded out the team with iPhone, camera and optical lens engineers...

Jean-Louis Gassée on Swatch’s decision to roll its...

Swatch is a major player in the watch space. To give a sense of their size, The Swatch Group employs about 36,000 people. Jean-Louis Gassée writes about the Swatch’s move into the smart watch space and their decision to avoid Android Wear and roll their own solution from scratch.

I found the whole read interesting, but wanted to highlight this bit about how Swatch was born:

Lebanese-born and Europe-schooled, Nicolas Hayek père was a genius.

In 1983, two venerable but mortally ailing Swiss watch industry companies, ASUAG and SSIH, called Hayek to their bedside to perform the last rites and liquidations. The companies had been unable to withstand competition from Japanese quartz watch manufacturers such as Seiko, Casio and Citizen. It was the humane thing to do.

But rather than pull the plug, Hayek demonstrated his unique combination of management, technology, and marketing savvy by making a counter-intuitive decision: In the middle of the “quartz crisis...

Screen Commander is new 'screen blanking'...

Alien Orb Software has introduced Screen Commander 1.0, a screen blanking utility for macOS. Developed for users with multiple displays, it lives in the menubar as a small icon and provides screen blanking options at the click of the mouse.

Screen Commander lets you blank other displays while watching a movie, playing a game, or focusing on some work on a particular screen. You can blank out other screens when they’re not needed and quickly unblank them again on demand.

"I wrote Screen Commander to scratch a personal itch," says Brian Christensen, owner of Alien Orb Software. "Having extra displays connected to my iMac is really great for getting work done, but sometimes I just want to watch a movie or play a game without the added distraction of those additional screens."

Screen Commander requires macOS 10.12 or later. It’s freeware and is available exclusively at the Mac...

GoArt lets Mac users create art with their photos

Everimaging has introduced GoArt 1.0, a photo editor for macOS. It lets you take a photo and apply artistic filters based on the works of art.

GoArt offers over 40 different styles of art to choose from. Everimaging sayks it will release more artistic effects on a regular basis.

GoArt uses "fine art" presets based on the artistic styles of history's most admired artists, including Van Gogh, Monet, and Picasso. The app can also create works based on various styles of art, such as Impressionism, Pop Art, Expressionism, Structuralism, and more. 

According to Maggie Wu, marketing manager at Everimaging, GoArt is the world's first AI [artificial intelligence] artistic app that allows anyone to export an HD image and make it possible to print their own works. The app lets you export your images in a high-definition format, up to eight megapixels in size. 

GoArt doesn’t require an Internet connection to process images. All the work is done on the Mac.

Modern mobile smartphone with broken screen isolated on white background.

If you have an AppleCare+ policy, you’re going to like this.

Apple has quietly updated its AppleCare+ policy, extending the purchase window for iPhones from 60 days to one year. The change has been confirmed with a support rep, but is not yet showing up on Apple’s official product page for AppleCare+.

If you go to Apple’s eligibility tool and input your serial number from the iPhone’s settings panel, you should be able to see a new purchase option so long as you purchased the device within the last year.

The change extends to Macs and Apple TV units, but Apple Watch and iPads are still restricted to 60 days following the purchase. Apple lowered the price of iPhone screen repairs from $99 to $29 last September, which helps as well.

In the event that your iPhone screen has been cracked, Apple requires a physical inspection to buy the service in-store...

iPhone to be available in Indonesia again after...

You’ll be able to buy an iPhone in Indonesia come the end of the month.

Apple is reportedly on track to resume sales of the handset within the country, following a roughly two-year period during which sourcing requirements kept the device off the local market.

The iPhone 7 and 7 Plus as well as the 6s series will go on sale through six retailers on March 31. In some cases, people should already be able to sign up for pre-orders.

iPhone sales were last permitted in Indonesia with the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus handsets. Subsequent sourcing regulations —similar to ones in India —then forced the product out, since Apple couldn’t ensure that 30 percent of components were local. Such rules are intended to boost domestic industry.

Sales are scheduled to resume due to Apple’s investment in three R&D facilities in the Indonesia capital of Jakarta. Previously, Apple’s R&D plans were uncertain.

Apple has begun making a number of global investment as a...

How to work in multiple Spaces in macOS Sierra

It’s easy for your Mac’s desktop to become cluttered, just as a physical desktop can. If this happens, you can create additional desktops, called spaces, to organize the windows. When you work in a space, you see only the windows that are in that space.

Use the Mission Control app to show the Spaces bar. This is where thumbnails represent your spaces and any apps you’re using in full screen or Split View. You can make your spaces unique by assigning a different desktop picture to each one. Just assign System Preferences to all desktops, then change the desktop picture in each space.

To create a space, open Mission Control, then click the Add button in the Spaces bar. You can create up to 16 spaces. When you’re done, click a space in the Spaces bar or a window in Mission Control.

To move between Spaces, do one of the following:

Apple's profits are made possible by that civil society, and the company should contribute its fair share.'"

According to Motherboard's sources, at least some of the involved companies are still in the process of evaluating the legal ramifications of the conditions.

However, that growth has slowed significantly, from 116 percent between September and the end of October to just 9 percent between January and February. The slowdown doesn’t surprise us, as we’ve found most iMessage apps slow, hard to use, and largely pointless. Are you using any iMessage apps regularly? If so, tell us about them in the comments.

Fury road: Did Uber steal the driverless future from...

Bloomberg:

But none of these (Uber) scandals has the potential financial impact of the one Uber has said the least about: a lawsuit from Alphabet Inc.—the parent of Google and Google’s self-driving car division, now called Waymo—over driverless cars. Waymo says Uber is in possession of, and is basing the future of its business on, technology that was stolen by a former employee.

There’s no doubt that various versions of “autonomous cars” are the future. But, just like the cars we drive from dozens of different manufacturers today, I don’t think that future belongs to just one

EduTech: What Apple can do to win back Chromebook...

EduTech is a 9to5Mac weekly series that focuses on technology’s application in education, lower and higher level, both for productivity and enjoyment. If you have suggestions for topics or specific questions you’d like to see answered, feel free to let me know. Catch up on past installments here

One story that’s been making the rounds in the media recently has been Apple’s role in education as it faces increased competition from products like Chromebooks.

Earlier this month, we reported on new data that claimed both iOS and macOS again were losing marketshare to Chromebooks. In the US, Chrome OS saw its share rise to 58 percent in 2016, up from 50% in the prior year. On the other hand, iOS dropped to 14%, down from 19% in 2015, and macOS dropped to 5% share, down from 6%.

External Link: LG Fixes UltraFine 5K Display Wi-Fi...

We’ve previously reported on the LG UltraFine 5K Display suffering from interference issues when positioned near a Wi-Fi router. The company promised to improve radio shielding in the monitors, and MacRumors has confirmed that newer units no longer suffer from interference. If you’re buying a new LG UltraFine 5K Display, note that units with serial numbers starting with 702 or 703 feature the upgraded shielding. Owners of older units can contact LG for a repair, which LG says will take 7–10 business days.

Hands-on: Philips Hue Go – dynamic lighting anywhere...

After going hands-on with the Philips Hue Lightstrip Plus, I was eager to try out other products in the Hue lineup. The Philips Hue Go seemed particularly intriguing thanks to its battery-powered portability.

The Go is an ~$80 portable light, the size of a small cantaloupe that’s been sliced in half. The unit can be stay on for 3 hours thanks to its built-in rechargeable battery, but can also be powered via a wall outlet.

Although the Hue Go comes bundled with 7 lighting presets, it really shines when combined with the Philips Hue Bridge. The Bridge isn’t a requirement to use the Go, but it does allow you to tap into the full potential of the product.

Should you consider adding the Philips Hue Go to your lighting repertoire? Have a look at our video walkthrough for my hands-on impressions and overview....

South by Southwest isn’t just a tech show—it’s more of an ideas show, a place where technology comes together with art, music, and film in creative ways to bring these outside-the-box concepts to the people. 

Well, I guess in the case of the Infinity Room, the point is to bring people inside the box. The Infinity Room is an installation by mixed-media artist Refik Anadol that uses trippy audio and visuals to create an illusion of infinite time and space. The room is a completely closed-off box with projectors on each of the four walls, and mirrors on both the floor and ceiling that make the space feel much bigger than it actually is. Looking down was a little freaky—it looked like I was suspended in midair.

However, new device launches, an expanding array of content for both consumer and enterprise users, and lower price points will propel the worldwide augmented and virtual reality headset device market at a breakneck pace, says the IDC research group. 

According to data from the International Data Corporation (IDC) Worldwide Quarterly Augmented and Virtual Reality Headset Tracker, total headset device shipments will reach 99.4 million units in 2021, up nearly 10-fold from the 10.1 million units shipped in 2016. This results in a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 58%...

Visa's payment-enabled sunglasses are ready for...

Tap-to-pay terminals make it easy for you to pay for things with your smartphone (hey, Apple Pay!), so in theory, you can use them to pay with anything that can support an NFC chip. 

That’s what Visa was illustrating at South by Southwest through their latest payment-enabled accessory prototype: a pair of sunglasses. The sunglasses had a small NFC chip embedded on the side, which was linked to a pre-paid card, and you could use the glasses to pay for stuff wherever tap-to-pay was accepted. When demoing the glasses, it worked seamlessly—even quicker than Apple Pay, since I didn’t need to wait for the terminal to accept my fingerprint scan.

The glasses are just a prototype, and part of an ongoing push from Visa to show just how easy this technology can be to implement. The sunglasses will be used by athletes during the World Surf League in Australia this March, and last summer, Visa issued...

Apple has been granted another patent (number 20170076077) involving facial recognition. This one is dubbed “locking and unlocking a mobile device using facial recognition.”

If it ever becomes reality, your iPhone and iPad could be unlocked when their camera recognized your mug. Per the patent, an unlocked mobile device is configured to capture images, analyze the images to detect a user's face, and automatically lock the device in response to determining that a user's face doesn’t appear in the images. The camera capturing and face recognition processing may be triggered by the device having detected that it has been motionless for a threshold period of time. 

In another embodiment, a locked mobile device is configured to capture an initial image using its camera, capture a new image in response to detecting movement of the device, determine that the device moved to a use position, capture a subsequent image in response to determining that the device moved to a use...

Fantag taps former Apple exec John Stone as COO

Fantag, a company that specializes in mobile video technology, has hired John Stone as its chief operating officer (COO). Among his many posts in the tech world, he served as a vice president at Apple, reporting directly to CEO Tim Cook, after the company acquired PowerSchool, a startup Stone co-founded in 1999 and which today serves 100 million users in 70 countries. 

At Fantag, John will help operationalize the company's business development activity and position Fantag for future strategic partnerships, according to Brian Dombrowski, founder and CEO at Fantag. 

Fantag's mobile video platform -- currently in beta and going live later this year -- enables spectators at live events to capture and share moments with a tap on their phone, and without having to actually record the video themselves.
