T-Mobile is giving customers using its Simple Starter price plan the choice of adding more data. From September 3rd, subscribers can opt to quadruple the LTE data allowance on the single-line plan from 500GB to 2GB, increasing the cost of the plan from $40 to $45, but retaining the same unlimited calls and texts as the original plan. Just as before Simple Starter users will find their data service suspended once they've used their allocation....

Apple will replace your defective iPhone 5 battery

Is your iPhone 5 battery life bad? No, I don't mean "Oh jeez I have to charge it every night!" bad, I mean "Wait, it was at 100% when I unplugged it five minutes ago, and it's already down 15%" bad. If so, your phone might fall within a certain...

ZeroChroma Folio-Slide for iPad Air

Folio-Slide builds upon the VarioSC case-slash-stand we previously loved for iPad minis, and iPad Airs. Using a combination of soft TPU and hard plastic, the matte black VarioSC covered almost all of those iPads, adding an incredible flip-out rear stand to their backs. While only modestly thickening the devices, and adding very little weight, ZeroChroma enabled each iPad to stand upright on your choice of reclining angles, supporting a wide variety…

Latest iPhone 6 render

In the run-up to an official announcement in September, several new leaks have emerged concerning the iPhone 6. Among these is another schematic from Chinese repair firm GeekBar, said to show the device's motion coprocessor -- codenamed "Phosphorus," but which may be called the M8. The M7 on the iPhone 5s, iPad Air, and Retina iPad mini enabled more precise motion tracking....

Swing Copters update makes Flappy Bird sequel...

If you’ve tried and thrown in the towel on Swing Copters, the follow up game from Flappy Bird creator Dong Nguyen, you may want to give besting your high score another try this morning.

An updated version of the game was released today, tweaking the gameplay and bringing it closer to the difficult-but-not-quite-as-impossible levels of its popular predecessor Flappy Bird.

In the latest version, you can no longer see the position of the first opening and hammers before you start, but the speed and velocity has slowed down enough to raise my high score from 1… to 2. You’ll probably score even better.

The creator of Swing Copters and Flappy Bird...

Apple Store Dealing with Outages Monday Morning

Apple's Web-based store was replaced with the "we'll be back" graphic that often comes just before a product update is released, and shortly thereafter came back online only to show the offline warning again moments later. The on-again-off-again site status could mean something new is coming, or -- considering the odd nature of the outages -- might be a sign Apple is suffering from some sort of server-related issue, especially since at times parts of the online store will load without any ofrmatting. Considering Apple has to take its Web-based store offline every time a product change happens, we're hoping this is actually a transition to a modern content management system like WordPress (but we aren't counting on it).

Analyst: Rumored display shortage will have “no...

In as much as the sapphire display story’s been making the rounds, as have rumors that Apple won’t have enough available to meet demand for the iPhone 6, at least one Wall Street analyst is predicting that this won’t affect sales.

Per AppleInsider, J.P. Morgan analyst Rod Hall wrote the following in a Monday morning note to investors:

“We believe that initial supply could be slowed somewhat if there is any truth to this but we doubt that iPhone unit volumes in the fall are likely to be impacted.”

Apple suppliers were “scrambling to get enough screens ready” for the launch according to...

Apple launches free iPhone 5 battery replacement...

Apple is offering a second replacement program for iPhone 5 users after offering to replace the sleep/wake button on some models in April. This time around it's the phone's battery that's giving users headaches. Apple says that a "very small percentage of iPhone 5 devices" may be experiencing poor battery life, requiring users to charge the device more frequently.

Affected devices were sold between September 2012 and January 2013 and are within a specific serial number range, Apple says. You can check your serial number on Apple's site to see if your phone qualifies for a free battery replacement.

Comcast Really Does Hate Its Customers


We were treated to the customer support call from hell earlier this month when a couple of well-connected bloggers taped their call to Comcast attempting to disconnect from the service and posted it online. Apparently there has been a sequel. The clear lesson from both calls -- particularly the second -- is that if you talk to Comcast support you need to record the call if you don't want to get screwed. With Comcast having been designated as "the worst company in America," I'm sharing my tale, because what happened to me could happen to you.

T-Mobile will let Simple Starter plans quadruple...

T-Mobile announced today that it’s adding a new data option to its Simple Starter plans that will let users quadruple their data for much less than the competition.

Currently the company’s Simple Starter plans start at $40 for unlimited talk, text, and 500MB of LTE data. Starting early next month, the carrier will let customers on the plan bump up to a total of 2GB of data for just an extra $5 per month. T-Mobile is promoting the option as a better alternative to overage fees charged by other carriers.

CEO John Legere compared the option to his competitors noting that if you “get Verizon’s $50 plan and use just one gig more data, and the price jumps to $65. It’s crazy.”

“People who use loads of data use T-Mobile,” said John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile. “And it’s no wonder. The old guard telecoms punish...

Jawbone UP activity tracker finds a new application...

Activity trackers can be a good way to monitor not only exercise but also sleep patterns – and now Jawbone’s UP device seems to have found a third application, as an earthquake tracker. The above graph shows the moment at which the magnitude 6 earthquake hit Napa, California, at around 3.20am … 

We reviewed UP when it first launched way back in 2011, when we described it as “pretty featured.” It now seems it can claim one extra feature: for all but those in the deepest phase of sleep, you can see the sharp jump where UP wearers were awakened by the quake.

The earthquake, the strongest to hit Northern California in 25 years, was centred six miles southwest of Napa, in the area made famous by its wines. The California Earthquake Authority said that...

Judge Koh Denies Samsung Request to Invalidate Apple...

Federal Judge Lucy Koh has denied a motion from Samsung to invalidate two Apple patents in the ongoing infringement legal battle between the two companies. Samsung was ruled to have infringed on the two patents and had hoped it could use new Supreme Court case law to show the concepts were simply digital representations of actions we take in the physical world.

The Mac Observer Spin: Refusing to invalidate Apple's '721 and '959 patents makes Apple's job in the courtroom easier, but Judge Koh made her decision based on procedural arguments, not on whether or not there was an issue with the patents. That means Samsung can potentially push for a ruling invalidating the patents again at some point in the future, just not in this case.

When someone’s heart stops, there are just minutes to save them from brain damage or death; by the time medics arrive, it can be too late. This is the problem former San Ramon Valley Fire Department chief Richard Price set out to solve with the crowdsourced iOS app, PulsePoint.

Price came up with the idea for the app after a tragedy that happened feet from where he was sitting, reports Re/code.

He was off-duty at a local deli when he heard sirens. Emergency vehicles pulled up and he rushed outside to see what was going on. A man in a shop next door had collapsed and emergency responders were unable to revive him.

“He was on the other side of the wall, I couldn’t see him,” Price says. “He lay there unconscious with no one doing CPR. I had a (automated defibrillator) nearby in my vehicle.”

You still have to show the code to a CBP officer, but you can bypass the normal queues and use a special Mobile Passport Control lane that should be significantly quicker … 

The app is being tested at Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, with at least one more airport due to join before the end of the year, ahead of expected wide-scale roll-out in 2015. It is currently limited to U.S. and Canadian citizens, and is likely to be extended to citizens of countries eligible for the visa waiver program at a later date.

Whole Foods is taking heat for selling rabbit

Quartz:

No one is talking about selling kittens and puppies at the meat counter, but for the group of bunny-loving pet owners protesting near the Whole Foods in Union Square, they might as well be. Fifty or so women and men of all ages carry signs, pass out flyers and pamphlets, and try to spread their message to passing Manhattanites. “Boycott Whole Foods,” they say, “because they’re killing rabbits.”

This may seem like a trivial fight involving a disproportionate amount of vitriol, but at its core it’s a debate that sheds light on the sometimes arbitrary categories we construct to make sense of the world.

I always find it fascinating what foods, meat in particular, we will and won’t eat and how dependent on our cultural constructs those decisions are. Personally, I love rabbit meat and when I was a kid in Nova Scotia, it was a staple of our diet. My Mom’s Rabbit Stew was spectacular.

According to Tesler, a PARC scientist who ended up working for Apple shortly after, Xerox came to Apple about a business development deal regarding more mundane matters like Xerox distribution. In the end Apple sold Xerox bargain-priced shares in exchange for these deals, including the agreement (pushed through by Jobs) that Apple would be able to see everything “cool” going on at Xerox...

Cook might be neither as charismatic or volatile as Steve Jobs was, but he's made some interesting moves and statements. One factor (an area in which Cult of Mac gives Cook an A) is employee happiness, something for which Jobs was not always known: Cook’s highest “grade” on this hypothetical report card may come from Apple employees. Though the lanky 53-year-0ld is reportedly short on small talk, his people skills have earned him a 93 percent approval rating from a sampling of almost 2,000 people who work at Apple on website Glass Door, where anonymous employees can rate their satisfaction with the overall work environment as well as give thumbs up or down for the CEO.

For Calgary’s husband-and-wife thespians Chris Ippolito and Karen MacKenzie, the Emmy-winning Christmas commercial for Apple is a gift that keeps on giving.

First, there was the fact that Ippolito and MacKenzie booked the high-profile, Edmonton-shot gig to begin with. It also gave 23 of their family members, including two-year-old daughter Clara-Anne, a chance to create some new yuletide memories after both clans were cast alongside them. It became an international sensation on TV and online, garnering millions of viewers. Then came the news last Sunday that the emotional ad, titled Misunderstood, had won a Creative Arts Emmy Award in Los Angeles.

I knew Apple had shot the ad in Canada but hadn’t realized it was such a “family affair”.

CarPlay introductions quietly slip back into 2015

CarPlay, Apple’s in-car iOS integration product, has shown up in flashy demos at various trade shows this year, but it will take a while before we see it on the roads, according to Lucas Mearian at Computerworld. Mercedes-Benz, Volvo, and Honda are all believed to be pushing back plans to include CarPlay in some of their new models until 2015.

Apple’s influence on the automotive industry may have been unintentional at first, but the arrival of the iPod created an infotainment paradigm shift. iPod owners wanted their MP3 players to connect to their cars. Less than a decade later and even the cheapest rental car now comes with a plethora of USB ports and wireless options for piping one’s tunes through the car’s speakers. CarPlay is an evolution of this approach...

This BlackBerry keyboard clone has a celebrity in legal trouble.

Typo Products

In a court order on Thursday, a Northern California District Court judge ruled that BlackBerry can pursue a contempt of court charge against Typo, a company co-founded by American Idol host Ryan Seacrest and CEO Laurence Hallier, which sells a small physical keyboard that attaches to an iPhone.

BlackBerry initially sued Typo in January, claiming that Typo's keyboards look almost exactly like its own. Indeed, Seacrest...

Apple announces iPhone 5 battery replacement program

On Friday, Apple announced that it had discovered that "a very small percentage" of first-run iPhone 5 units -- those sold between September of 2012 and January of 2013 -- have a defect that results in unusually short battery life, and have instituted a program to replace the battery. Users will need to bring the units to an Apple Authorized Service Provider or retail Apple Store; however, customers should be aware that Apple will send the unit off to a facility to be inspected....

Conjecture Regarding Larger iPhone Displays

Throughout the entire rumor cycle for this year’s new iPhones, we’ve been inundated with reports of two new screen sizes, 4.7 and 5.5 inches. But while the physical sizes of these displays leaked early and often, the exact pixel dimensions have not.

At this point, there’s too much smoke around the “two new iPhones, 4.7- and 5.5-inch” narrative for there not to be a fire. I think that’s what Apple is planning to announce next month — not because anyone “familiar with the plans” has told me so, but simply because so many parts have leaked corroborating these two sizes.

I’ve spent much of the last month trying to figure out the pixel counts for these displays, and it’s actually quite tricky. When Apple changed the iPhone display previously, they did so in obvious ways. With the iPhone 4’s retina display, Apple kept the physical size exactly the same (3.5 inches...

AAPL hits all-time closing high at $101.32

Apple's stock closed on Friday at an all-time record high, on a straight split-adjusted basis, cracking $101 per share. The 74-cent rise on Friday rang down the curtain on a week that saw the stock gain just over $3 per share, culminating in the record-breaking performance weeks ahead of anticipated new product announcements, and months before the start of the holiday buying season, which is again expected to favor Apple over its primary rivals. Thus far in 2014, AAPL is up 27.29 percent....

Week of Who, Day Five: Curse of Fatal Death

Week of Who concludes today with The Curse of Fatal Death, a special produced as part of a telethon for the Red Nose Day charity. This is a notable piece of Doctor Who history because it makes more than a few connections between the old series and the new, notable among them being that the "episode" was written by now current executive producer of Doctor Who, Steven Moffat. It was part of the Red Nose Day telethon in 1999, and has been affectionately adopted as part of the Whoniverse. Like a ridiculous, but lovable uncle, if your uncle was Rowan Atkinson. Enjoy the new series!

Samsung had filed the motion in early July, based on a recent Supreme Court decision, Alice vs. CLS Banks, which stated that software ideas that were just abstract representations of real-world concepts (such as turning a doorknob) were not patentable....

Apple announces battery replacement program for the...

Jacqui Cheng

If you purchased the iPhone 5 early in its life and your battery seems to need charging more often than usual, pay attention: Apple has just announced an iPhone 5 battery replacement program for phones that "may suddenly experience shorter battery life or need to be charged more frequently." The affected phones were all sold in the first few months of the iPhone 5's life, between September of 2012 and January of 2013.

Apple's program page, linked above, will tell you if your phone is eligible based on its serial number, which can be found in iOS' Settings app under the "About" subheading. Affected users will need to take their phone to an Apple service provider, an Apple Retail Store, or make arrangements with Apple's phone support technicians. Before taking your phone in for repair, Apple recommends that you back your data up using iCloud or iTunes, turn off the Find My iPhone service, and...

Small heads, safe ears: The best headphones for kids

Macworld:

…as more and more schools are using iPads and laptops as part of the curriculum, teachers want students to be able to hear lessons and work on projects without disturbing each other. Still, it’s telling that headphones are in, and binder paper is largely out.

But after volunteering in my kids’ classrooms over the past three years, I can tell you that when it comes to children, not all headphones are created equal. The best headphones for adults are rarely the best models for kids, for a number of reasons

Not having kids, this is something I’ve never given any thought to. Good to see an article about this focused on the needs of little ones.

OS Flaw Leaves Android Wide Open for App Hack Attacks

They tested apps from Gmail, H&R Block, Newegg, WebMD, Chase Bank, Hotels.com and Amazon. "Changes in the shared memory side channel allow an attacker to infer if there is an activity transition going on in the foreground," said researcher Zhiyun Qian, an assistant professor at the University of California at Riverside. "This is a design choice by modern OSes ... . The same attack may work as well [on other mobile OSes]," he added.

Bill Gates’s ALS Ice Bucket Challenge Video

Former Microsoft CEO Bill Gates is just one of a ton of folks who have accepted the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge-we posted Apple CEO Tim Cook's public challenge last week-but his video has a higher production value than most. In fact, it's awesome. And funny, though we did note a distinct lack of ice in the ice bucket he poors over his head. But never mind, he challenged Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk, TV personality Ryan Seacrest, and Chris Anderson from TED, and he had fun doing it. Mr. Gates didn't announce how much money he was donating, but then he never toots his own philanthropic horn, despite being the most prolific philanthropist since the word was invented. So, watch the video and consider donating some money yourself.
