Apple CEO Tim Cook on Privacy: Follow the Money

Apple CEO Tim Cook has some advice for those concerned about privacy and your data: follow the money.

Tim Cook talks privacy in part two of Charlie Rose...

The first clip of part two of Tim Cook’s interview with Charlie Rose has posted tonight with a segment on Apple and privacy. In the interview, Cook discussed the privacy of user data using Apple services as Apple has mentioned in the past.

We’re not reading your email, we’re not reading your iMessages. If the government laid a subpoena on us to get your iMessages, we can’t provide it. It’s encrypted and we don’t have the key.

Cook also discussed how Apple’s approach to Apple Pay, its new mobile payment system, emphasizing that Apple is in the business of selling iPhones, not user information like other companies. Cook commented strongly that he is “offended” by the practices of some other companies. The shot at...

We can confirm via several different people who ordered the device—including some of the 9to5Mac staff—that Apple has begun shipping iPhone 6 Plus units to customers. As expected, looking up these shipments with their UPS tracking numbers (or, in this case, reference number) reveals expected delivery dates of September 19th, the very same day that the phone is expected to start appearing in stores across the US.

This comes following the surfacing of actual working units of Apple’s new flagship in China and Vietnam earlier today, just days short of the device’s official US release date (via Dan Tri). Supposedly, a reporter for the Associated Press spotted the devices and managed to confirm...

Quartz:

It now costs 1.6 cents to produce each US one cent coin due to the high price of zinc, which makes up 97% of each coin, according to the Wall Street Journal. President Obama has proposed phasing out pennies and nickels (5-cent pieces) on numerous occasions, including in the 2015 budget, but Congress has yet to bite.

It’s one of those things we all know but inertia seems to keep America from getting rid of this useless coin.

Stanford, Duke University Start Apple HealthKit...

Stanford University Hospital and Duke University are both ramping up for patient trials for Apple's HealthKit platform in iOS 8, and they're working with medical device makers to link health data into HealthKit so it can be transmitted to doctors. Stanford is testing HealthKit-based technology with pediatric patients who suffer from Type 1 diabetes, and Duke University is tracking weight and blood pressure for cancer and heart disease patients.

The Mac Observer Spin: Hospitals and major health clinics tend to move relatively slowly when adopting new technology to make sure it's safe and accurate, so don't expect to see HealthKit become an overnight success. That said, if Apple can keep the interest of medical centers associated with big names like Stanford and Duke, it could become the name in remote personal medical data collection.

A closer look at the space shuttle that never got to...

Ars Technica:

The space shuttle Enterprise has been ensconced aboard the USS Intrepid for just over two years. It sits in a silent warehouse, dramatically lit so it appears to be cruising in a dark vacuum. Tourists can wander around or under it at the exhibit; they can even walk up some stairs and get nose-to-nose with the Enterprise, staring down its long axis through a thick layer of glass.

While the whole thing evokes space exploration, the Enterprise has never actually made it out of Earth’s atmosphere.

I saw the Enterprise at The National Air and Space Museum of the Smithsonian Institution years ago and, even though I’m not a Star Trek geek, I was sad a ship named “Enterprise” never made it into space.

Guy Oseary on U2′s $100 million deal with Apple

Billboard:

With lead single “The Miracle (Of Joey Ramone)” set to be featured in a massive media campaign from Apple, valued at $100 million by multiple sources, U2 has already scored arguably the biggest launch in music history. And it’s one that’s already fraught with a little controversy, from angry retailers to Grammy and SoundScan guidelines.

Oseary (U2′s manager) rang Billboard on Sept. 11 to address the many questions about the launch, and what’s next (another album?) from this landmark deal with Apple.

For a band that many (not me) consider to be irrelevant to today’s music, this campaign is a concerted effort to market and reinvent what was once called “The World’s Greatest Band”.

Apple sends OS X Yosemite Public Beta 3 out to...

New month, new beta.

Andrew Cunningham

Good news for the brave OS X Yosemite beta testers out there: Apple has just released Public Beta 3, a new build that makes various tweaks and additions while fixing bugs and improving stability. Apple has declined to provide specific release notes for the update, but at first blush it doesn't seem to change as much as Public Beta 2 did last month.

Apple continues to push new Yosemite betas to its public testers at the rate of about one per month—that's one public beta build for every two developer beta builds. Today's public beta was released alongside Developer Preview 8, and both should include most of the same fixes and improvements (plus the new stuff that came with Developer Preview 7).

In addition to the new design and features in Yosemite, users of the public beta will be able to take...

U2 is no longer the kind of band that generates controversy or inspires strong feelings one way or another. That’s Miley Cyrus territory. But Apple’s giveaway of the band’s new album, Songs of Innocence, is causing such a backlash that the company is making it as easy as possible to get rid of its gift.

Who knew free music could be so polarizing?

We showed you how to hide the album, which was the only way to remove it given that once you buy tracks—or they’re gifted to you—you own them forever. But Apple on Monday launched a support page with a direct link that lets you banish the existence of Songs of Innocence from your devices. That’s harsh.

On Monday, Apple confirmed that its iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus pre-order numbers broke records for the smartphone line, as they combined to rack up over four million purchases in the first 24 hours they were on sale. As we reported—and Apple's announcement confirmed—many of those pre-orders won't ship to customers until October.

The pre-orders, which started early Friday morning in nine nations, handily surpassed the first-day numbers of the iPhone 5; that model received...

iPhone 6, 6 Plus online pre-orders slip slip to...

It comes down to supply and demand.

And apparently Apple didn’t have a large enough supply to meet pre-order demand.

Per The Mac Observer, Apple’s new iPhone 6 pre-orders have slipped from delivering on September 19th to a seven to ten day shipping delay. The delay means anyone who didn’t manage to pre-order their iPhone 6 before inventory ran out will have to wait about a week before seeing theirs, or stand in line this Friday morning at an Apple Store or one of the company’s retail partners.

The iPhone 6 is Apple’s new 4.7-inch smartphone. It ships with either 16GB, 64GB, or 128GB storage, an Apple-designed...

The company now lacks any network partners, as earlier this month Vodafone said it would skip extending its own contract. All of Phones 4U's 550 stores are shut today, and will only reopen if and when administrators decide business can resume. The situation could endanger the jobs of some 5,596 workers....

Apple’s come a long way with its iPhone processors.

And, according to reports, the new A8 processor is more than 84 times faster than the processor found in the first-yen iPhone back in 2007.

Per a hearty investigation by AnandTech and AppleInsider, the A8 processor that will be found in the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus handsets is likely equipped with Imagination’s six-core PowerVR Series6XT GX6650. The GX6650 is the only PowerVR part that could both match Apple’s claimed performance improvements and supports ARM’s Adaptive Scalable Texture Compression, which Apple developer documents...

Physicians at the university hospitals will start trials in the next few weeks that will allow them to track patient data more effectively, according to a Monday report from Reuters. Doctors at Stanford University Hospital will use HealthKit to track blood sugar levels of diabetic children, while Duke University physicians plan to track vitals like blood pressure for patients with heart disease and cancer.

iPhone 6, 6 Plus pre-orders drawing up to $6,000 via...

Well, you’re gotta admit: this is an admirable level of pre-order scalping.

Per Computerworld, profiteers hoping to turn a quick buck on the shortage of Apple’s new 5.5-in. iPhone 6 Plus handsets have listed their pre-ordered phones on eBay for as much as US$6,000.

While that was the highest asking price for a new iPhone 6 Plus as of Friday afternoon, there were almost 30 listed on the auction site with “Buy It Now” prices between US$2,000 and US$2,999; over 280 between US$1,000 and US$1,999; and even 5 under US$1,000.

Buy It Now is eBay’s non-auction price that sidesteps bidding. Not all eBay entries for the iPhone 6 Plus included a Buy It Now price.

You’ll notice a few new apps (and less available storage) on your new iPhone 6 or 6 Plus later this week when you fire it up for the first time. According to an internal Apple Retail training document (seen below), iOS 8 compatible iLife and iWork apps will come pre-installed on iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.

This includes iMovie, GarageBand, Keynote, Pages, Numbers, and iTunes U. Owners of the 16GB models of Apple’s newest smartphones will still have access to these apps for free, but they must be manually downloaded from the App Store. It remains unclear as to whether or not GarageBand in-app purchases will also be available at no additional cost.

Just over a year ago, Apple announced that all new iOS devices would be allowed to download these apps.

Apple’s apparently got some admirable leverage where its transaction negotiations are concerned.

Per the mighty Financial Times, Apple will be garnering 15 cents on every US$100 purchase, more than Google managed for its Google Wallet initiative.

Sources familiar with Apple’s banking and credit card arrangements have stated that Apple will get a 0.15 percent cut of every Apple Pay transaction conducted over its NFC-based Apple Pay system.

The new information adds to a previous report that noted Apple will collect fees from banks for customer purchases. What those fees were, exactly, was unknown at the time.

In an in-depth overview of Apple Pay published yesterday, it was reported that Apple’s...

Analyst: Apple on Track to Top 10M iPhone 6 Launch...

Apple confirmed Monday morning iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus first-day pre-orders topped 4 million units, and Wells Fargo analyst Maynard Um says that puts the company on track to sell at least 10 million during this weekend's in-store launch. If so, Apple is set to more than double its iPhone 5 launch weekend sales.

The Mac Observer Spin: Apple skipped pre-orders last year for the iPhone 5S because inventory was fairly limited. Since pre-orders are back this year, it's likely more inventory is on hand, and based on pre-order weekend figures, that puts the company on track to sell something on the order of 13 million phones this weekend. Some companies can't hit those numbers in a quarter.

Demand for the new iPhones exceeds the initial pre-order supply and while a significant amount will be delivered to customers beginning on Friday and throughout September, many iPhone pre-orders are scheduled to be delivered in October. Additional supply of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus will be available to walk-in customers on Friday, September 19 at 8:00 a.m. local time at Apple retail stores.

If you’re the CEO of a watch company, you likely watched the announcement of the Apple Watch with a mixture of optimism and fear. Optimism because Apple just made watches cool again in a market where many people haven’t worn one for years. Fear because most of those who now have a renewed interest in watches aren’t going to buy yours.

Guess Watches CEO Cindy Livingston put a brave face on it with a letter welcoming Tim Cook to the watch industry (full version below) as she announced the company plans to make a smartwatch of its own … 

Livingston talks about the changes the watch industry has already gone through over the decades – “the introduction of quartz movements, the rise and fall of calculator watches, digitals, analogue-digitals and many many brands, both big and...

Rise of the Smartwatch


Taken separately, last week's announcements from Apple, Intel and T-Mobile were impressive. Intel and T-Mobile basically announced they were going to explode the existing mobile market, changing it dramatically from what it is today. Apple embraced some slow-moving technologies, which should speed them up dramatically. Frankly, I don't think what Apple announced is in the same league, but it will have a big impact and drive change into the market. Of these three news-making companies, Intel is setting up to provide the biggest impact by far.

iPhone 6 Pre-orders Showing Week-long Shipping Delay

The delay means anyone who didn't manage to pre-order their iPhone 6 before inventory ran out will have to wait about a week before seeing theirs, or stand in line this Friday morning at an Apple Store or one of the company's retail partners.

The Mac Observer Spin: It sounds like Apple built up a bigger pre-launch inventory than it had available for earlier iPhone launches, and yet there weren't enough to handle all the pre-orders. You don't see this level of interest for new Samsung or Microsoft smartphone launches.
