But he has big plans for 2017, predicting that T-Mobile will be the first carrier to provide Gigabit LTE all while unveiling four new rules for the mobile internet:...

Apple Removes NYTimes App in China, Shows How Far It...

Apple has removed the New York Times app from its store in China after a government request, in an example of how far the company will go to please the authorities in its third-largest market. From a report: China operates what is thought to be the largest internet censorship regime in the world, blocking thousands of foreign websites viewed as a threat by the ruling Communist party. Google, Twitter, Facebook Youtube and Instagram are all inaccessible. Apple removed the English and Chinese-language versions of the New York Times app on 23 December, although it was not immediately clear why. "We have been informed that the app is in violation of local regulations," said Carolyn Wu, an Apple spokeswoman. "As a result the app must be taken down off the China app store. When this situation changes the app store will once again offer the New York Times app for download in China."

Piq Robot Blue is an AI-powered wearable that gives...

As a Las Vegas native who enjoys watching boxing and has always cursed the exorbitant cost of entry to fights at the MGM Grand, when an invitation to a CES event at Top Rank Boxing Gym appeared in my email inbox, I immediately RSVPed. Top Rank is a legendary boxing promoter, and its gym is where some of the greatest fighters have trained. So I went to the gym after a day of canned press conferences from the world’s biggest tech companies to see featherweight Francisco Esparza, a local champion, throw punches in the ring.

Esparza was demonstrating a new wearable device from French startup Piq Sport Intelligence, who partnered with 100-year-old boxing gear maker Everlast to develop what it calls Robot Blue. Piq’s Robot Blue is a sensor-packed nanocomputer that a boxer or mixed-martial arts fighter slips into a wrap, which is then placed around the hand or the top of the glove. The sensors, which include two accelerometers, a gyroscope, and an altimeter powered by an M4...

Apple’s lauded MagSafe connector on past Mac laptops disengaged with the slightest amount of pressure. This saved many a MacBook Air and MacBook Pro from a disastrous plummet when someone accidentally snagged the power cable. However, Apple abandoned the tech on recent laptops, going all in for USB-C ports and no others.

Coming from Griffin is an updated BreakSafe Magnetic USB-C Breakaway Cable for the 2016 MacBook Pro, as well as a new USB-A adapter, a car charger, and a wall charger that all use the BreakSafe magnetic connectors. It’s the first product that may be of primary interest to owners of new Mac laptops.

The Hi-Power Magnetic USB-C Breakaway Cable adds the magnetic connector to other devices with USB-A and power/data at speeds up to 480 Mbps. It’s due in the second quarter of the year for US$19.

Apple, from their press release:

Apple today announced that the App Store welcomed 2017 with its busiest single day ever on New Year’s Day, capping a record-breaking holiday season and a year of unprecedented developer earnings and breakout app hits. In 2016 alone, developers earned over $20 billion, up over 40 percent from 2015. Since the App Store launched in 2008, developers have earned over $60 billion, creating amazing app experiences for App Store customers across iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, Apple TV and Mac. Those efforts helped kick off 2017 with a remarkable start, making New Year’s Day the highest single day ever for the App Store with nearly $240 million in purchases.

And:

LodeRunner, online and free

LodeRunner was one of my favorite games from the long ago. I’m delighted that it still exists. It is as fun to play as I remember. Old school. Give it a try. Unfortunately, haven’t figured out how to play it on my phone. Keyboard required.

Fossil's Misfit takes on Apple with Vapor, a $...

Misfit is best known for its simple, affordable fitness trackers, many of which resemble pieces of jewelry. But the Fossil-owned company is braving new territory—at least for itself—with its first touchscreen model, a round 44mm watch called Vapor.

People aren’t exactly clamoring to buy smartwatches right now, but Misfit thinks packing a heart rate monitor, 4GB of on-board music storage, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and fitness-tracking sensors including an accelerometer, altimeter, and gyroscope into one supersized, waterproof package under $200 will appeal to people who think smartwatches just aren’t that useful.

Jan. 1 was the Apple App Store’s busiest day ever

Apple says its App Store welcomed 2017 with its busiest single day ever on New Year’s Day, capping a record-breaking holiday season. There were nearly US$240 million in purchases.

In 2016 alone, developers earned over $20 billion, up over 40% from 2015. Since the App Store launched in 2008, developers have earned over $60 billion, creating “amazing” app experiences for App Store customers across iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, Apple TV and Mac, according to Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. Customers broke all-time records this holiday season with purchases from the App Store topping $3 billion in December. 

In the same month, Nintendo’s Super Mario Run made history with more than 40 million downloads in just four days after its release, and was the most downloaded app globally on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day. Super Mario Run is also among last year’s top 10 most downloaded apps worldwide, with Pokémon Go taking the top spot.

USB-C hubs

Jonny Evans takes a short look at some noteworthy USB-C hubs. Of particular note is the HyperDrive kickstarter:

Announced last year, HyperDrive occupies two of your MacBook Pro’s four USB-C slots. In exchange, it provides you with twin USB 3.1 ports, a microSD and an SD slot, a single USB-C port (at 5Gbps), a Thunderbolt 3 port and HDMI video output. You can power two displays at 4K or a single display at 5K with this.

All this for only $69. Seems like a terrific solution, assuming it ships. Here’s the Kickstarter link.

Medium pivots, shuts New York and DC offices

Ev Williams, CEO of Medium:

As of today, we are reducing our team by about one third — eliminating 50 jobs, mostly in sales, support, and other business functions. We are also changing our business model to more directly drive the mission we set out on originally.

And:

We set out to build a better publishing platform — one that allowed anyone to offer their stories and ideas to the world and that helped the great ones rise to the top. In 2016, we made big investments in teams and technology aimed at attracting and migrating commercial publishers to Medium. And in order to get these publishers paid, we built out and started selling our first ad products. This strategy worked in terms of driving growth, as well as improving the volume and consistency of great content. Some of the web’s best publishers are now on Medium, and we’re happy to work with them every day.

And:

However, in building out this model, we realized we didn’t yet have the right...

Apple wins patent for a carrying case boasting an...

Apple has been granted a patent (number 2017001428) for the “marking of a fabric carrying case for a portable electronic device.” The marking is a funky looking twist on the Apple logo and is apparently designed for an iPhone carrying case.

In the patent filing, Apple notes that embroidery or ink has been used for marking fabric items for many years. For example, it’s common for garments to be marked with an owner's initials using embroider or ink. Conventionally, such marking is done with an ink printing or stamping process or with an embroidery process. 

Although embroidery or conventional ink printing and stamping is useful for many situations, such techniques can be inadequate for marking other items. For example, conventional marking techniques may not be able to offer sufficient accuracy and precision. Apple says there’s is a need for improved marking techniques — although the patent filing doesn’t explain the unusual logo.

Here’s Apple’s...

VESA and HDMI update standards, implications for...

Great post from Jeff Benjamin about the emerging 8K standard from VESA (They created the DisplayPort standard) and HDMI.

One particular point of interest:

One of the biggest takeaways is that HBR3 enables support of 4K at 60Hz using only two DisplayPort lanes. This means that DisplayPort Alt Mode via the USB-C interface can provide full 4K resolution at 60Hz, and still have two high-speed lanes remaining for SuperSpeed USB operation.

Why is this of note? Take the recently released LG UltraFine 4K Display, for example. That display takes advantage of DisplayPort Alt Mode, but the remaining downstream USB ports are forced to use antiquated USB 2.0 due to the lack...

Wall Street Journal:

Apple Inc. headlines a growing list of investors in SoftBank Group Corp.’s $100 billion technology fund, which is expected to include Foxconn Technology Group Ltd. and the family office of Oracle Corp. Chairman Larry Ellison, the Japanese telecommunications giant said Wednesday.

Apple separately said it plans to invest $1 billion in the Japanese telecom giant’s fund. “We believe their new fund will speed the development of technologies which may be strategically important to Apple,” said Apple spokeswoman Kristin Huguet. She added that Apple has worked with SoftBank for many years.

The trio joins a list of investors that includes Qualcomm Inc. and Saudi Arabia’s government, which plans to invest $45 billion over a five-year period, SoftBank said Wednesday. SoftBank will invest $25 billion in its fund, it added.

Lots of reasons for Apple to do this. They’ll be cementing partnerships with Foxconn, Qualcomm, and others and the fund...

The company announced that come January 31st, it will announce its quarterly earnings for the first fiscal quarter of 2017, revealing performance metrics for the new iPhone 7 series and the lucrative holiday shopping season.

AT&T is looking towards the world’s first global 5G modem.

The company announced plans to test the world’s first global 5G modem to help test initial 5G spectrum deployments across the world. AT&T also announced their “5G Evolution” plans for 2017.

The global 5G modem announced by Intel today reportedly achieves speeds “exceeding 5 Gbps” while maintaining ultra-low latency connections. Intel’s 5G modem is already compliant to multiple industry 5G specifications, along with being able to provide fallback to a 4G connection when needed. It can even interwork 4G/5G connections. Intel says they should begin testing the 5G modem in the second half of 2017, before going into production.

AT&T stated that it’s aiming for a 1 Gbps speeds in 2017 at some cell sites using their 4G LTE-Advanced network, 5G video trials with DIRECTV NOW in the first half of 2017 to residents in Austin, 5G business customer trials that launched last fall in Austin, and...

Time for Apple to take Siri, its personal digital assistant, to the next level. Why? Your kids may not always listen to you but soon your smart home will. A new survey from Coldwell Banker Real Estate and Vivint Smart Home found Americans are ready to embrace using voice control, with an increasing number already using the feature.

According to the survey, 72% of Americans who have smart home products – controlled remotely by a smartphone, tablet, computer or by a separate automatic system within the home itself – want voice control. And of that group, 81% of parents who have smart home products desire to control smart home products with voice activation. The survey also found that 48% of Americans with smart home products currently have voice control capability.

So what do consumers want to control...

Mohu has launched Mohu AirWave, a wireless, over-the-air (OTA) and over-the-top (OTT) device that integrates live, local broadcast TV with free streaming channels across streaming devices, including Apple TV, Roku, Fire TV, Android, iOS and more. 

Launching initially as an exclusive at Best Buy in late spring for US$149.99, AirWave was built to give cord cutters open, simple and complete wireless access to the live TV and streaming content they enjoy, all in one place and with no monthly fees, according to Mark Buff, founder and CEO of Mohu. He adds that, as the number of people who cut the cord on cable continues to rise, Mohu created AirWave for consumers who are looking to have complete access to free live broadcast networks, which are available through an OTA antenna, as well as the over-the-top video content they crave.

AirWave wirelessly connects to the Mohu TV application (available for free across all compatible devices), which allows users to channel up and...

Speck announces transparent, impact-resistant cases...

Speck is known for its transparent cases which protect MacBook models against scrapes and scratches without hiding them from sight, but they’ve so far done nothing to guard against impact damage from knocks and falls. All this is set to change, says the company, with its new Presido Clear range of cases, which protect against falls of up to four feet.

Presidio Clear for MacBook is made with Impactium Clear, a dynamic transparent material that absorbs and disperses shock upon impact and protects MacBooks from drops up to 4 feet. Impactium Clear is co-molded into a raised edge around the perimeter of the case that also provides a secure, no-slip grip, so you’re less likely to drop your device. The case’s dual-layer, two-piece design easily clips onto the MacBook.

The first model available will be for the 13-inch...

Worldwide combined shipments of personal computers (PCs), tablets, ultramobiles and mobile phones are projected to remain flat in 2017, according to Gartner, Inc. Worldwide shipments for these devices are projected to total 2.3 billion in 2017, the same as 2016 estimates, adds the research group.

There were nearly seven billion phones, tablets and PCs in use in the world by the end of 2016. However, Gartner doesn’t expect any growth in shipments of traditional devices until 2018, when a small increase in ultramobiles (a category in which Gartner includes the MacBook Air and 12-inch MacBook) and mobile phone shipments is expected. 

"The global devices market is stagnating. Mobile phone shipments are only growing in emerging Asia/Pacific markets, and the PC market is just reaching the bottom of its decline," says Ranjit Atwal, research director at Gartner.

Hands-on: Glyph’s Atom RAID SSD brings super-fast...

If you’re a new MacBook Pro owner, then perhaps you’ve considered using external storage to increase storage capacity. After all, the MacBook Pro is limited by relatively small internal storage drives, although you can now go up to 2TB (at a $1,200-$1,400 premium) with 15-inch build-to-order options.

That said, I think most professional creatives will be interested in adopting some form of external storage to use with the new MacBook Pro. Of course, there are tons of external drive options on the market, ranging from standard hard drives, to solid state drives. Even if these drives feature USB-A connectors, they can be quickly adapted to work with USB-C.

But the Atom SSD line from Glyph is an extremely attractive choice for new MacBook Pro owners. Not only does it feature excellent build quality and out-of-the-box USB-C to USB-C connectivity, it also takes advantage of USB 3.1 gen 2, which not...

I don’t know about you, but I buy my mirrors at IKEA. I don’t expect them to do anything more than help me figure out if my hair is sticking up or if my eyeliner has gone horribly awry. But as I age, the mirror has become more important. It helps me find sun spots, redness, or anything else I need to take note of for my dermatologist. So when I saw HiMirror Plus, a smart mirror that promises to find and analyze all of your skin issues and tell you if they’re something to be concerned about at CES this week, I knew I had to try it.

The $259 Bluetooth and Wi-Fi-connected mirror has a camera and two LED light strips, one on each side. The camera takes a high-res image of your face, which the mirror then analyzes to give you percentages on dark circles, pores, red spots, dark spots, fine lines, wrinkles, and overall complexion.
