With new EKG monitor and Heart Study app, Apple...

We’ve all heard stories about how Apple Watch has helped people lose weight and get in shape, but two new initiatives could turn it into an essential, life-saving tool.

Back when Apple Watch Series 3 was announced in September, COO Jeff Williams talked about a new joint study with Stanford Medicine that will use Apple Watch to detect arrhythmia, or irregular heart rhythms, and notify users who may be experiencing atrial fibrillation (AFib). Now Apple is ready to open it up to the public via the Apple Heart Study app.

Review: Etymotic mk5 Isolator In-Ear Headphones

We often talk about the importance of isolation with IEMs. Usually, we talk about how we experiment with ear tips and fiddle with positioning of our IEMs to get a "good seal," and how it's important to hear the full frequency response range of a headphone and block outside noise. But there's more to it than that — good isolation allows you to listen to music at lower volumes and protect your hearing. Etymotic is one of very few companies that is as focused on protecting hearing as it is on making quality earphones. Today we're trying one of their entry level models — the Mk5 Isolator IEMs. Not only do they live up to their name, they also sound way better than they should for under $65.{/exp:char_limit}

Many of us who own both newer iPhones and Apple Watches were thrilled to see Apple's reveal of the AirPower charging mat, but disappointed to see that we'd have to wait until 2018 to actually get one of the cool devices. Now there's a Kickstarter campaign for a charging pad that provides much of the functionality of the AirPower at a fraction of the cost. The Funxim Charging Pad ($29, campaign has reached its funding goal) can charge both an iPhone 8/8 Plus/X and an Apple Watch at the same time just by laying the devices on the pad.

The design is actually quite simple, but it does have some limitations. The Funxim Charging Pad is actually a Qi-compatible iPhone charger with an Apple Watch charging puck embedded in it. In other words, you can place the iPhone pretty much anywhere on the pad, but you have to place the Apple Watch...

The Periodic Table of elements, in pictures and words

Keith Enevoldsen:

This pictorial periodic table is colorful, fun, and packed with information. In addition to the element’s name, symbol, and atomic number, each element box has a drawing of one of the element’s main human uses or natural occurrences. The table is color-coded to show the chemical groupings. Small symbols pack in additional information: solid/liquid/gas, color of element, common in the human body, common in the earth’s crust, magnetic metals, noble metals, radioactive, and rare or never found in nature.

This is really cool. I used to know all of the elements (had to learn/memorize them in school) but we were never taught what some of them do, why they are important or how we use them. This illustration helps a

Apple teams up with Stanford Medicine for a study to...

Apple has launched the Apple Heart Study app, which is designed to facilitate research study using Apple Watch’s heart rate sensor to collect data on irregular heart rhythms and notify users who may be experiencing atrial fibrillation (AFib).

AFib, the leading cause of stroke, is responsible for approximately 130,000 deaths and 750,000 hospitalizations in the US every year. Many people don’t experience symptoms, so AFib often goes undiagnosed.

To calculate heart rate and rhythm, Apple Watch’s sensor uses green LED lights flashing hundreds of times per second and light-sensitive photodiodes to detect the amount of blood flowing through the wrist. The sensor’s unique optical design gathers signals from four distinct points on the wrist, and when combined with powerful software algorithms, Apple Watch isolates heart rhythms from other noise. The Apple Heart Study app uses...

AliveCor, which specializes in FDA-cleared personal electrocardiogram (EKG) technology, has announced FDA clearance of its $199 KardiaBand in the U.S.

It allows Apple Watch users to capture their EKG anytime, anywhere in order to quickly detect normal sinus heart rhythms and atrial fibrillation (AFib), the most common heart arrhythmia. The first FDA-cleared medical device accessory for Apple’s smartwatch, KardiaBand can record an EKG in 30 seconds with just a touch of its integrated sensor, according to AliveCor CEO Vic Gundotra. Results from the Kardia App are displayed on the face of Apple Watch.

AliveCor is also introducing SmartRhythm, a new feature within the Kardia app for the Apple Watch. It uses artificial intelligence in concert with inputs from Apple Watch's heart rate and activity sensors to continuously evaluate the correlation between heart activity and physical activity.

Each quarter, mobile experts compare the features and performance of iOS and Android smartphones. In the third quarter of 2017, Apple's iPhones came out victorious in the battle, with the Android device failure rate (30%) being nearly double that of the iOS device failure rate (16%), according to the Q3 2017 State of Mobile Device Performance and Health report released by Blancco Technology.

Both Android and iOS devices have seen their failure rates increase quarter-over-quarter. In quarter two (Q2) of 2017, for example, the failure rate for iOS devices worldwide was 12%. This has since increased to 16% in Q3 2017, according to Blancco, , which specializes in data erasure and mobile device diagnostics.. Android devices have experienced a similar struggle, with the failure rate worldwide jumping from 25% in Q2 2017 to 30% in Q3 2017. Key...

Comment: Inexcusable root security bug highlights...

In the entire history of operating system bugs, I don’t think there have been many bigger than the one reported this week. Allowing anyone with physical access to a Mac to login to it without a password is inexcusable; letting them in as root, so they have complete control of the machine and all accounts on it, is simply mind-boggling in its incompetence. Especially when the bug turns out to have been known for at least a couple of weeks.

We can at least take comfort in the fact that this bug wasn’t there for long, at least in the official release. But there have been smaller bugs and glitches that have literally lasted for years without being fixed.

While many find that a tablet or a laptop (or, for some, even a phone) is all they need, there are others who want to compute the old fashioned way - on a desktop. David Milman, president of RESCUECOM, a computer repair company, says Apple’s iMac is an ”excellent computer” that’s less than half the price of Microsoft’s Surface Studio (though he recommends the Studio as the best-in-class for desktops over $4,000).

Milman says the latest iteration of the iMac is by far the best to date. The 21.5 inch version comes with a massive 1TB drive, usually reserved for models in a much higher price range. 4K refers to the iMac's 4K impressive Retina display, which offers a quality of graphics, brightness, color, and clarity most typically found in higher-priced models.

IDC: Apple Watch sees 52.4% year-over-year growth

The worldwide wearables market took another step forward in the third quarter of 2017 (3Q17) with total shipment volume reaching 26.3 million units, up 7.3% year over year, according to the International Data Corporation (IDC) Worldwide Quarterly Wearable Device Tracker

Apple's recent introduction of cellular connectivity with the Apple Watch Series 3 is helping provide an uplift to sales and awareness of wearables, adds the research group. The company has seen 52.4% year-over-year growth for its smartwatch.

But while the overall market showed continued growth, it also showed a growing trend towards smart wearables (devices capable of running third party applications) and away from basic wearables (devices that don’t run third party applications), according to IDC. Apple's results reflect the timing of its product refresh late in the quarter and this was evident in the overall...

How the Apple Watch precisely tracks your swimming...

This is a Popular Science article from a few months ago, but I came across it last night, found it fascinating.

Rob Verger, Popular Science:

The device has functioned as a swim tracker since it became water-resistant in 2016, but with its latest operating system, it presents a more granular metric: set detection. It knows when you rest at the pool’s edge and then uses that information to divide the workout into sets of laps, showing you how far and long you swam in each, what stroke, and your rest time.

And:

Apple built its own algorithms to discern the stroke of swimmers of all skill levels, as well the calories they’re burning. The process involved gathering data from more than 700 swimmers and over 1,500 swim sessions. And Apple gathered even more data from people swimming in place (in an “endless” pool) while wearing a mask that descended from the ceiling.

And:

The watch uses the gyroscope and accelerometer to track the motion of your...

Strong early adoption of the iPhone X positions Apple for market leadership, according to Ian Fogg, senior director, mobile and telecom, IHS Markit

In eight countries, the iPhone X already accounts for over 2% of the iPhone active installed base just three weeks after its first availability on Nov. 3. The leading countries for iPhone X adoption are markets with high gross domestic product (GDP) per head such as Singapore, Denmark, Switzerland and Japan.

IHS Markit, a research group, is able to use its unique measurement of active installed base data to provide very early insights into how the iPhone X is performing, well in advance of the availability of shipment data, says Fogg.

Countries where “Plus” model iPhones have been successful in the past have a strong correlation with initial levels of iPhone X adoption, according to IHS Markit. Consumers in those markets have a greater interest in larger displays...

Billboard:

It’s been three and a half years since Jimmy Iovine left his role as CEO of Interscope Geffen A&M to run Apple Music, but that doesn’t keep him from thinking about the problems facing labels today — or the rest of the industry for that matter.

Over a dinner recently at NeueHouse Hollywood in Los Angeles with Iovine and Allen Hughes, who directed the four-part documentary series, The Defiant Ones — which focuses on storied careers of Iovine and Dr Dre., his partner in developing Beats Electronics — a handful of journalists lobbed questions at and shared their thoughts with the iconic exec.

This was a fascinating read. Not too long, and completely Jimmy.

Apple has been granted a second patent (number 20170340209) for using an Apple Watch to monitor blood pressure. This one is dubbed “blood pressure monitoring using a multi-function wrist-worn device.” The first (number 20170293727) for a “user device” for “intelligent blood pressure monitoring.” 

The newly granted patent provides non-invasive devices, methods, and systems for determining a pressure of blood within a cardiovascular system of a user, the cardiovascular system including a heart and the user having a wrist covered by skin. It discloses a variety of wrist-worn devices — various smartwatch models — having a variety of sensors configured to non-invasively engage the skin on the wrist of the user for sensing a variety of user signals from the cardiovascular system of the user. 

The goal is to passively track blood pressure values without any interaction required on the part of the user or may allow for on demand or point measurements of blood pressure values...

Mark Wilson writes: A group going by the name Google You Owe Us is taking Google to court in the UK, complaining that the company harvested personal data from 5.4 million iPhone users. The group is led by Richard Lloyd, director of consumer group Which?, and it alleges that Google bypassed privacy settings on iPhones between June 2011 and February 2012. The lawsuit seeks compensation for those affected by what is described as a "violation of trust." Google is accused of breaching UK data protection laws, and Lloyd says that this is "one of the biggest fights of my life." Even if the case is successful, the people represented by Google You Owe Us are not expected to receive more than a few hundred pounds each, and this is not an amount that would make much of an impact on Google's coffers.

Is your Magic Mouse 2 acting sluggish and tracking slowly? If so, there are several steps you can take to get it back up to speed (literally).

The first, easiest, and most effective thing thing to do is simply wipe clean the glass on the bottom of the mouse that houses the laser. Heck, I pick my mouse up and simply blow any dust off the glass when it seems “tired.” That almost always does the trick. If that doesn’t work, try one of these steps:

Download and install the latest Magic Mouse firmware. You can find out how to do so by clicking here.

Reset the connection and re-pair the device. Go to the Bluetooth and Mouse system preferences and remove the mouse from your system. Turn the mouse off and back on so it goes into discovery mode and pair it back up with your Mac through the "Mouse" system preferences.

Reset the computer's PRAM by holding down the options-command-P-R keys at...

Notable apps and app updates for Nov. 30, 2017

On a regular basis, Apple World Today posts a list of notable new apps or app updates that have been released. They may not necessarily be new, but they're popular and deserve mention. Here are today's picks.

iOS Apps/Updates

Wulum Creative Technology has introduced Saving Christmas - AR 1.0. In the free augmented reality app, you help Santa deliver Christmas presents. To do this, you have control over a drone that is in charge of dropping presents over houses marked with floating trees on their roof. Of course, there’s a catch; you have to deliver all presents before Christmas is over.

Williams-Sonoma has launched...

Sports section begins to surface in iOS 11.2, tvOS...

If you’re looking for additional sports goodness via your iOS device or Apple TV, Apple may have some good stuff coming your way.

Apple’s TV app has finally gained the live sports integration announced months ago. The dedicated sports section now appears to be live on the TV app on latest betas of iOS and tvOS.

The news follows a rumor released earlier this month via a verified source that stated that a Sports section would be released around December 4th. The new feature will bring live scores, game alerts, and the ability to watch multiple games simultaneously.

The Sports section also offers the ability to track favorite teams across MLB, NFL, NBA, NHL, and more. In Apple’s September demo they showed off live news integration, but that doesn’t yet appear to be live within the TV app update.

If the new Sports section isn’t appearing, force quitting the TV app and relaunching it should cause it to appear.

The Sports tab is appearing for those...

Apple releases fix for root user bug in macOS 10.13...

Apple has released a fix for the now-infamous root bug in macOS High Sierra.

The company released its Apple Security Update 2017-001 update on Wednesday. The update, a 2.1 megabyte download, can be located and installed via the App Store app. Open this program, click on “Updates” and the patch will appear as a security update that can be installed without needing to restart your Mac.

Apple offered the following comment regarding the fix:

When our security engineers became aware of the issue Tuesday afternoon, we immediately began working on an update that closes the security hole. This morning, as of 8 a.m., the update is available for download, and starting later today it will be automatically installed on all systems running the latest version (10.13.1) of macOS High Sierra.

We greatly regret this error and we apologize to all Mac users, both for releasing with this vulnerability and for the concern it has caused. Our customers deserve better. We...

High Sierra Root Login Bug Was Mentioned on Apple’s...

It’s natural to speculate how a bug as egregious as the now-fixed High Sierra root login bug could escape notice for so long. It seems to have been there ever since High Sierra 10.3.0 shipped on September 25, and may have existed in the betas through the summer. One explanation is that logging in with the username “root” and a blank password is so bizarre that it’s the sort of thing no one would think to try. Like the classic “1-2-3-4-5” scene in Spaceballs, but with the ultimate weak password — none at all.

More insidious though, is the notion that it might not have escaped notice prior to its widespread publicization yesterday — but that the people who had heretofore discovered it kept it to themselves.

This exploit was in fact posted to Apple’s own support forums on...

Review: Martin Logan Forte Wireless Streaming...

In recent months, we've reviewed a number of smart home speakers focused on music streaming. Though it's great to have smart functionality in what would have otherwise been relatively mundane Bluetooth speakers, we were frustrated by what felt like arbitrary limitations on their functionality. Also, though services like Spotify and Tidal can stream high-quality music files, those speakers' sound quality was necessarily limited by their small form factor. That's why we were immediately excited when speaker veteran Martin Logan offered us a chance to review their Forte wireless streaming amplifier. Though speakers are not included, the Forte is free of those artificial limitations, and almost without compromises.{/exp:char_limit}
