Why Blade Runner is called Blade Runner

Saw Blade Runner over the weekend. Very impressive movie, but it does beg the question. What the hell is a Blade Runner?

Abraham Riesman, Vulture:

Though the viewer is told in the opening text of Ridley Scott’s 1982 original that “special Blade Runner units” hunt renegade replicants — and though the term “Blade Runner” is applied to Harrison Ford’s Rick Deckard a few times in the film — we’re never given an explanation of where the proper noun comes from. “Blade?” Deckard uses a gun, not a knife or sword. “Runner?” Sure, he runs at times, but not more than the average person might. Blade Runner 2049 has a few scenes that prominently feature scalpels, but they’re not wielded by a Blade Runner. The novel upon which Blade Runner was based, Philip K. Dick’s Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, offers no clues: Deckard and his ilk are just cops, never referred to as Blade Runners. The term is impressionistic at best and nonsensical at worst.

64% of Americans now own an Apple product, up from...

The latest CNBC All-America Economic Survey reports that 64% of Americans now own at least one Apple product, and that the average U.S. household now owns an average of 2.6 Apple products. CNBC first asked the question back in 2012, when the numbers were 50% and 1.6 products.

Even more impressive is the fact that there are very few demographics where Apple product ownership is below 50% …

Wells Fargo promised cardless ATM withdrawals using Apple Pay back in March, and has today announced that the facility is available at more than 5,000 machines across the USA.

A customer can initiate an ATM transaction by signing into leading mobile wallet features, such as Wells Fargo Wallet for Android, Apple Pay, Android Pay or Samsung Pay, found on mobile phones. They simply hold their phone or wearable device with mobile payment functionality near an NFC-enabled ATM terminal. Wells Fargo ATMs enabled for this feature will display a “contactless symbol” decal on the front of the ATM.

Weirdly, however, you’ll use your ATM PIN rather than Touch ID to authenticate …

Apple eyes a self-adjusting Apple Watch band (now...

A self-adjusting band for the Apple Watch, anyone? It’s possible. Apple has filed for a patent (number 9,781,984) for “dynamic fit adjustment for wearable electronic devices.”

Systems and methods for dynamically adjusting the fit of a wearable electronic device are disclosed. In many embodiments, a tensioner associated with a wearable electronic device can control one or more actuators that are mechanically coupled to either the housing or to a band attached to the wearable electronic device. In one example, in response to a signal to increase the tightness of the band, the tensioner can cause the actuator(s) to increase the tension within the band.

In the patent filing, Apple says that some wearable electronic devices (such as smart watches) may be multi-purpose devices, providing in one example both fitness/health tracking and timekeeping functionality. Accordingly, a user may prefer the fit of a smart watch to vary with use. For example, a user may prefer a looser...

2018 iPad Pro models may feature TrueDepth camera...

Juli Clover, MacRumors:

iPad Pro models set to be released in 2018 will come equipped with a TrueDepth Camera and will support Face ID, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo told investors in a note this morning.

Kuo believes Apple will add TrueDepth cameras to the iPad Pro to introduce a user experience that’s consistent with the iPhone X and boost competitiveness. With all high-end iOS devices equipped with TrueDepth Cameras, “ecosystem development” will also benefit.

Here’s the quote from Ming-Chi Kuo:

We predict iOS devices to be equipped with TrueDepth Camera in 2018F will include iPhone X and 2018 new iPhone and iPad models. Because of this, we believe more developers will pay attention to TrueDepth Camera/ facial recognition related applications. We expect Apple’s (US) major promotion of facial recognition related applications will encourage the Android camp to also dedicate more resources to developing hardware and facial recognition applications...

Wells Fargo, BNZ announce Apple Pay support

Wells Fargo & Company has announced that debit card customers have another way to use the company’s ATMs without their card -- “tap and pay” near-field communication (NFC) functionality that is launching at more than 5,000 ATMs across the country, which means Apple Pay compatibility.

The Bank of New Zealand, better known as BNZ, also says it will become the second major financial institution to support Apple Pay in New Zealand, though it gave no date on when this would be implemented. New Zealand’s ANZ Bank already supports Apple’s mobile payment service.

Apple Pay is currently available in 15 countries: Australia, Canada, China, France, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, Russia, Singapore, Spain,...

Deadline: Apple terminates deal for Weinstein...

Nellie Andreeva, Deadline:

I have learned that Apple has pulled the plug on an Elvis Presley biopic series from The Weinstein Company in light of the controversy that has engulfed TWC since last week’s explosive exposé about its co-founder Harvey Weinstein.

The article has a gossipy tone, this falls under the category of “a little birdie told me”, but it is both interesting and believable. The Weinstein Company is doing everything they can to distance themselves from this scandal.

If this story is true, Apple is bailing early in the life of the series, and pulling the plug on something that predates their deal with Jamie Erlicht and Zack Van Amburg (the team they brought in to run the Apple video division).

Analyst: tax plan could push Apple to ‘trillion...

In a note to clients,, RBC Capital Markets says Apple could reach a “trillion dollar market-cap scenario” thanks to President Trump’s tax plan. 

RBC estimates that the plan, which includes a corporate tax rate cut from 35% to 20%, could provide Apple with a $4 to $4.50 earnings-per-share windfall to go before approval but RBC outlines key areas that could benefit Apple including tax deduction caps for interest expenses, tax rates on foreign profits, and a lowered repatriation tax. 

The plan would cut the corporate tax rate from 35% to 20% and lower repatriation tax rates for the accumulated foreign earnings of U.S. companies. Bank of America Merrill Lynch analyst Wamsi Mohan estimates the lower corporate taxes to benefit Apple’s earnings per share by $0.77 in fiscal year 2018 and $0.89 in...

Rumor: iPad to gain True Depth camera, Face ID...

It probably won’t come as a surprise, but Apple is looking to bring its Face ID technology to the iPad in 2018.

Per a research note released by analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities, Kuo stated on Monday that he believes the iPad Pro lineup will be bolstered by the addition of a TrueDepth camera.

By bringing Face ID and facial recognition capabilities to more of the product lineup, developers will be encouraged to create more applications, further strengthening the company’s ecosystem.

Kuo made no mention of impending design or form factor changes, such as whether there might be an iPad featuring an OLED display or whether Apple would do away with the home button, as it did with the iPhone X.

However, Kuo did indicate over a year ago that he expected OLED panels will come to the iPad lineup in 2018. It was in that same report that Kuo correctly predicted three new iPads in early 2017, including a new 10.5-inch screen size for the smaller iPad Pro....

AirPods inventory expands, pairs now easily found at...

If you’ve been hankering for a pair of AirPods but haven’t been able to find it on your normal store shelf, odds are they’ve finally arrived at your local Apple Store. Apple has been ramping up in store inventory over the past couple weeks, and most of the stores The Mac Observer checked have plenty in stock all the time.

Apple introduced AirPods a year ago but suffered from ongoing inventory constraints from the first day they were supposed to hit store shelves. Prior to a couple weeks ago, finding AirPods in a store was akin to finding a Wonka golden ticket and ordering online meant waiting weeks—if not months—for them to arrive.

This changed around the time the iPhone 8 was launched a couple of weeks back. Since then, the stock of AirPods in Apple Store retail locations seems to have improved dramatically.

Customers can check whether the pair of AirPods they want is in stock at their Apple Store location via their iOS device. If they’re available you can...

How to set up Universal Clipboard on macOS High...

The Universal Clipboard feature in macOS High Sierra and iOS 11 allows you to copy content, including text, images, photos and video from one Apple device and paste it in another. For example, you can browse a recipe on your Mac and paste the ingredients right to the grocery list on your iPhone.

The cool thing about Universal Clipboard is that you don’t have to turn on any settings for it to work. It just happens automatically as long as all your Mac and iOS devices are on the same Wi-Fi network. Also, make sure that Bluetooth is enabled on your iPhone and/or iPad.

With these steps implemented, you can copy on one device, go to another, and paste the data (text, photos, or videos) into another. 

To copy on a device, select the content you want to copy, then copy it. For example, on your Mac, press Command-C or choose Edit > Copy. The copied content is available to paste on your other devices only for a short time.

To paste on a device, position the...

Some folks really need Adobe Photoshop with all its bells and whistles. However, Pixelmator has long been my graphics editing program of choice. The app has only gotten better with the recently released version 3.7.

Launch the application and you’re presented with an iMovie-style set of choices: Create New Image, Open Existing Image or Open Recent Image (the latter replaces the former Start Using Pixelmator option). Pixelmator supports over 100 different file formats, including — thank you, Pixelmator Team — PSD files.

The Pixelmator toolbar is very Mac-like. It’s streamlined, clean and easy to use after a short learning curve.

The software is user friendly and works well with macOS' Photos app. For example, the Photo Browser palette in Pixelmator lets you access your Photo Library, albums, Smart Albums, as well as pictures in your Pictures folder. You can drag and the images as layers in a Pixelmator composition.

Analyst: 2018 iPad Pros will get FaceID, TrueDepth...

In a note to clients — as noted by AppleInsider — KGI Securities analyst says the 2018 iPad Pro will add FaceID with a TrueDepth camera, following the debut of such features in the upcoming iPhone X.

Apple says FaceID is “even more convenient than Touch ID.” With Face ID, the iPhone X unlocks only when you’re looking at it. It’s designed to resist spoofing by photos or masks. Your facial map is encrypted and protected by the Secure Enclave. And authentication happens instantly on the device, not in the cloud.

The TrueDepth camera for the iPhone X works by using a projector to cast 30,000 dots on your face, which it then reads with an infrared camera. Apple already demonstrated applications of the system, FaceID and Animojis, both of which promise implications of their own when the TrueDepth SDK (software developer kit...

‘Apple for Athenry’ held to support Apple’s proposed...

More than 300 people have attended a rally in Athenry, Co Galway, Ireland, to support Apple's proposed €850m data centre for the town, reports RTE. The tech giant was granted planning permission over two years ago but construction has been delayed by legal challenges.

The march was organized by a campaign group calling itself “Apple for Athenry.” RTE says that the organizers highlighted the economic benefits of the proposed data centre: 300 construction jobs over multiple phases and 150 technical positions on an ongoing basis.

THIS COMPUTER-GENERATED IMAGE OF APPLE’S PROPOSED DATA CENTER IS COURTESY OF BUSINESS INSIDER.

Apple planned to start building the data center on a 500-acre site before the end of 2015. However, it was delayed when unhappy Irish citizens lodged formal complaints with the Irish government. Complainants argued that the data...

Hullo: Stop Tossing and Turning on Your Sad Old...

Thanks to Hullo for sponsoring the Loop this week. A hot, sweaty, flat pillow will wake even the deepest sleeper. Soft traditional pillows collapse under the weight of your head which can cause strains in your neck, shoulders and back. They also retain body heat, which can make sleep uncomfortably warm. It’s time to abandon tradition and try something new!

Have You Ever Slept on a Buckwheat Pillow?

They’re totally different than the soft spongey pillows you’re used to. A buckwheat pillow is sort of like a beanbag for your head. Their unique and firm support simply can’t be matched by traditional pillows. The buckwheat hull filling will perfectly conform to the shape of your head and neck, providing comfortable support all night long. Buckwheat pillows also allow air to move freely though your...

Unsupported iTunes 12.6.3 brings iOS App Store back...

One of the "features" of iTunes 12.7.0 -- the latest official version of Apple's media store -- that has befuddled a number of Mac users is the removal of the iOS App Store. For bloggers, having the iOS App Store in iTunes was very useful, as we could use the app to easily search for apps on our Macs while writing. The removal of the iOS App Store also caused issues for Volume Purchase Program (VPP) customers who need to deploy apps within a business through iTunes. Apple has released iTunes 12.6.3 specifically for VPP customers, providing a way for other users to bring back the App Store if they wish.

Now there's one little problem if you want to do this on your own Mac -- if you install iTunes 12.6.3 on your personal Mac that already has 12.7 installed, 12.6.3 will not be able to read an iTunes 12.7  library... If you have a past backup of a 12.6.x iTunes library that can be restored, then here's how...

Apple CEO Tim Cook has a meeting later today with French President Emmanuel Macron, but he spent time earlier today doing some sightseeing, visiting Apple technology partners, and surprising several app developers.

He started with a visit to the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial, the burial site of more than 9,300 American soldiers who fought in World War II.

Apple could benefit from proposed Trump tax plan

Bank of America Merrill Lynch reiterates its “buy” rating and $180 price target for Apple, forecast that President Trump’s tax reform plan will benefit the company.

The plan would cut the corporate tax rate from 35% to 20% and lower repatriation tax rates for the accumulated foreign earnings of U.S. companies. Bank of America Merrill Lynch analyst Wamsi Mohan tells clients that “existing deferred tax liability on the balance sheet could allow for substantially all of Apple’s foreign cash to be repatriated” and investors will give that cash a higher multiple.  

Mohan estimates the lower corporate taxes to benefit Apple’s earnings per share by $0.77 in fiscal year 2018 and $0.89 in fiscal year 2019. The analyst says Apple has $223B in “unrestricted” cash overseas and could repatriate at a tax rate of 8.75%.

AR Tape Measure 2.0 from It’s About Time Products:...

Apple’s ARKit is a framework that’s part of iOS 11 that lets developers create augmented reality (AR) experiences for the iPhone and iPad. One of the first developers we knew of that created AR apps was this week’s sponsor, It’s About Time Products, and we’re happy to tell you about the free AR Tape Measure 2.0 app.

With a compatible iPhone or iPad and iOS 11, AR Tape Measure 2.0 turns your device into a highly accurate tape measure. Simply point your device’s camera at the floor and move it back and forth so that it can recognize the surface. When it’s ready, you can use any of four measuring modes: distance (tape measure), area, angle, and distance from phone.

Apple releases iTunes 12.6.3 for ‘certain business...

Apple has released iTunes 12.6.3, which reintroduces the ability to download App Store apps and ringtones from within the iTunes desktop software. However, this update isn’t targeted to the general end user.

Apple offers Volume Purchase Programs and Apple Configurator on Mac to help enterprise environments manage and mass-deploy apps on iOS devices. However, the company says that “certain business partners might still need to use iTunes to install apps,” which is why iTunes 12.6.3 is available.

If you've already installed a newer version of iTunes, you can download this version of iTunes on your Mac, PC 32-bit or PC 64-bit and run the installer. After installation is complete, you can continue to deploy apps with iTunes. You won’t be prompted to download new versions of iTunes after you install this version.
