Upcoming Macs could ditch the audio jack for...

At the company’s IDF Developer Conference in San Francisco, Intel pushed for mobile devices to ditch analog audio and embrace digital headsets using USB-C. Yep. USB-C, not Lightning.

If the rumors are true — and I believe they are — the “iPhone 7” will ditch the 3.5mm audio jack and go strictly with Lightning and wireless headphones and earbuds. It may be possible that Macs will go the same route with all desktops and laptops adding Lightning ports. Or perhaps Apple will promote USB-C headphones for its desktop and laptop line-up. The latter is less likely as the company would probably prefer supporting one audio standard across its entire product line-up.

At the IDF Developer Conference in San Francisco on Tuesday, Intel architects Brad Saunders and Rahman Ismail talked about (http://www.cnet.com/news/intel-expects-usb-type-c-could-help-kill-the-3-5mm-...

WaterField Designs stays on a roll with the...

Let me say upfront that, in all my years of reviewing products, there have been few from WaterField Designs that haven’t impressed me. That hasn’t changed with the WaterField Designs Bolt Briefcase.

Are WaterField Design products expensive? Yes. The Bolt’s price ranges from $249 to $279 depending if you want a small (which can accommodate up to a 13-inch laptop), medium, or large size (which can handle a 17-inch notebook). You get what you pay for, and the company’s products are impeccable.

The Bolt has a designated, laptop compartment for a Mac notebook, PC laptop, Surface Pro, or other device. The gadget is accessible through a quick-access zipper, which speeds up things when you pass through TSA airport security.

The Bolt is designed to accommodate everything for short business trips without the need for an extra bag. Ergonomically-designed straps distribute weight evenly for...

The TiVo Roamio (love the name) OTA 1TB is a great gadget to watchlive, recorded, on-demand and over-the-top television. Perhaps Apple should be "inspired" by some of its features and include them in an high end version of its Apple TV set-top box. 

The $399.99 Roamio offers a host of cool DVR features combined with favorite streaming services. It’s sorta like an Apple TV, Roku and cable box rolled into one. 

With four tuners and 1TB of storage, the OTA 1TB can access and record up to 150 hours of high-definition programming and up to four shows at once, from popular local networks including ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, PBS and Univision, where available with an HD antenna. The TiVo Roamio OTA 1TB also gives users access to their content and subscriptions from video services such as Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime Instant Video and YouTube, among others. An Apple TV DVR with such features and storage would be perfect for storing movies purchased on iTunes.

Rumor: iPhone 7 could have a 256GB top storage tier

It will be SO nice when Apple finally has its event to announce the newest iPhone, since the rumor mills are running overtime right now. Those wacky folks at DigiTimes are citing industry sources and saying that the iPhone 7 (or whatever it's called) will come in a 256GB version

DigiTimes is actually the third site to report this news; Taiwanese research firm TrendForce and website MyDrivers have both conjectured about a bigger storage tier for the iPhone 7 in the past. DigiTimes says that "NAND flash vendors have increased chip prices citing strong demand for new smartphones particularly the iPhone 7 featuring up to 256GB of storage, according to industry sources."

The increased top storage tier is good news for those who use their iPhones to store mass quantities of photos, videos and other media. In July, the Wall Street Journal reported that the bottom end capacity for the iPhone 7...

AT&T subscribers won’t automatically be moved to these new plans, so current customers will want to compare these new rates and potentially save money with more data.

Intel To Manufacture Rival ARM Chips In Mobile Push

An anonymous reader writes: Chip maker Intel has entered an unlikely partnership with British semiconductor firm ARM in an effort to boost opportunities for its foundry business. The licensing agreement, which was confirmed at the Intel Development Forum in San Francisco, means that from 2017 Intel's Custom Foundry will manufacture ARM chips -- used by smartphone giants such as Apple, Qualcomm and Samsung. On the announcement of its latest earnings report, Intel was clear to highlight a shift in focus, away from the traditional PC market, to emerging areas such as the Internet of Things and mobile -- a sector dominated by one-time arch rival ARM. It seems that Intel has now decided to surrender to the latter's prominence in the field.

iTunes 12.5 and iOS 10 music app add lyrics to song...

Kirk McElhearn walks you through the process of showing lyrics on your Mac and iOS device. Love this.

Lyrics have been part of iTunes for a long time. Here’s Kirk on what’s new here:

You have always been able to add lyrics to files in iTunes, but iTunes didn’t display them other than in the Info window. On iOS, you could display them by tapping album artwork, if you had added lyrics to your files. So what’s new is the display in iTunes, in the Up Next popup, or in the MiniPlayer.

In addition, iTunes and iOS will now search for lyrics that you haven’t added to your tracks. This is new, and involves some sort of licensing, most likely with Gracenote.

So it’s a pretty big deal.

Agreed.

Bloomberg:

Apple Inc., the world’s richest company, is making a documentary with Cash Money Records, one of the world’s most successful hip-hop labels.

Cash Money is home to Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj and Drake, with whom Apple already has an exclusive deal. Co-founder Bryan Williams, who performs under the stage name Birdman, posted a picture to his Instagram account on Tuesday alongside Larry Jackson, the head of Apple’s original music content, with both executives holding their chins pensively. The photo celebrated Apple agreeing to fund a documentary for the label, according to people familiar with the deal. It is not, as many had speculated after the photo, an agreement to secure all of Cash Money’s new albums exclusively, the people said.

This is Apple continuing to dip their toes in the water.

Apple doesn’t talk about its supply chain very often, but the company does love to tout its environmental efforts. On Tuesday, Apple announced that its supplier Lens Technology has committed to using 100 percent renewable energy to manufacture glass for Apple, by the end of 2018.

Lens Technology is expected to use wind power to reach this goal. Currently, it produces glass for Apple at two factories in Changsha, Human province, in southern China. By using clean wind power, the firm will avoid releasing nearly 450,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide each year.

“We want to show the world that you can manufacture responsibly and we’re working alongside our suppliers to help them lower their environmental impact in China,” said Lisa Jackson, Apple’s vice president of Environment, Policy and Social Initiatives, in a press...

Rumor: Apple won’t use “iPhone 7 Pro” name for next-...

According to the current rumors, the “iPhone 7 Pro” monicker may never come to be.

A number of sources have said that Apple is following this name scheme to avoid confusion of having back-to-back iPhones with “S” in the name, even though the iPhone 7 will largely be a minor update over the iPhone 6s.

The new report nixes the additional third tier/”Pro” name, which had been a rumored dual-lens alternative to the single-lens “iPhone 7 Plus” that had been mentioned months ago. The less-powerful camera option was said to be created by Apple as a fallback in case the dual-lens technology didn’t pan out. Now that everything seems to be going well for the company in this area, and mockups have repeatedly shown a dual-lens camera enclosure, it makes sense for Apple to revert to the...

Apple to boost China investments as demand slows

Reuters:

Apple Inc will boost its investment in China, one of its largest but increasingly challenging markets, and build its first Asia-Pacific research and development center in the country, Chief Executive Tim Cook said on Tuesday.

Cook made the pledge during a trip to China, at least his second in four months, as demand for Apple’s iPhones has plummeted in the world’s second-largest economy and the government remains wary about foreign technology.

Apple’s new research and development center will be built by the end of the year, Cook told Vice Premier Zhang Gaoli, one of China’s most senior officials, according to CCTV, the official Chinese state broadcaster.

The center will unite Apple’s engineering and operations teams in China and is also intended to deepen the company’s ties to partners and universities, it said in a statement.

Intel expects USB-C could help kill the 3.5mm audio...

Stephen Shankland, writing for CNET:

At the Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco on Tuesday, Intel architects Brad Saunders and Rahman Ismail sketched out a coming USB audio standard that could help push the 3.5mm jack aside. The new specification, due this quarter, adds features to ensure a USB headphone doesn’t drain too much battery power and defines how buttons for pausing music or lowering volume work.

This is an interesting fork in the road for the 3.5mm audio jack. One rumored path is the elimination of the 3.5mm jack from the upcoming iPhone 7, in combination with a potential lightning to 3.5mm headset adapter for legacy headsets.

This UDB-C push would be another path, another adapter for legacy headsets.

Seems to me, all roads lead to wireless headphones as the future. The short term is the replacement cycle, similar to what we went through with the elimination of the floppy drive, the CD/DVD drive, and the changeover to the lightning cable....

Kärntner Straße (pictured) is the most famous shopping street in central Vienna. It runs from the Stephansplatz out to the Wiener Staatsoper at Karlsplatz on the Ringstraße. The first record of Kärntner Straße is from 1257, as Strata Carintianorum, which refers to its importance as a trade route to the southern province of Carinthia.

The higher-end smartphone is expected to have a dual lens camera. Depending on which rumor you believe, the next gen iPhone will be waterproof, dustproof, and support wireless charging.

According to the global research firm TrendForce, the major hardware highlights include expanded storage for all models and dual-camera specifically for the 5.5-inch model. The iPhone 7 — pictured here in fanciful mock-ups — will be generally consistent with its predecessor appearance-wise, according to the...

Apple announces 'significant'...

Apple has announced a “significant commitment” by major supplier Lens Technology to run its Apple operations on entirely renewable energy. This unprecedented commitment, combined with zero waste compliance from all final assembly sites, furthers Apple’s efforts to help manufacturers lower their carbon footprint and reduce waste in China, helping to advance China’s transition to a new green economy, according to Lisa Jackson, Apple’s vice president of Environment, Policy and Social Initiatives.

Lens Technology has committed to power all of its glass production for Apple with 100% renewable energy by the end of 2018, as part of Apple’s supply chain clean energy program announced last year. Lens is the first supplier to make a clean energy commitment for all of its Apple production, and will meet its goal through an unprecedented power purchase agreement with local wind projects, says Jackson.

An amazing collection of Apple and Mac history is going on the auction block next month.

Tekserve, once the go-to third-party repair shop for Apple products in New York City, announced last month that it would be closing shop on August 15 after being in business since 1987. Now that Tekserve has officially closed shop, Apple fans will have the opportunity to purchase some museum-worthy vintage Apple and NeXT gear through auction.

An assortment of the auction items are valued at relatively low prices and there’s even a Tekserve store sign up for grabs.

Some of the more interesting items up for auction include a melted Macintosh that the repair shop kept, several Think Different Apple posters from the iconic ad campaign, an iPod mini...

Intel licenses ARM to use chip manufacturing capacity

Intel has announced that it’s licensing technology from rival ARM Holdings Plc.

The two chipmakers unveiled the agreement Tuesday at the Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco. The accord will let Intel offer third-party semiconductor companies its most advanced 10-nanometer production lines for manufacturing the complex chips usually used in smartphones.

Intel, which receives most of its profits from its processor business, has failed to gain ground in the emerging smartphone market, which until now has been dominated by ARM. Under Chief Executive Officer Brian Krzanich, Intel is trying to persuade other chipmakers to use its factories for their production. Adding licenses for ARM’s technology could open up that business to fabricating chips based on those designs for companies...

The Growing Scourge of Cyberbullying, Part 2


The digitization of everything has decreased the degrees of separation between everyone. While that interconnectedness has solved many problems, old and new, digitization has worsened one age-old problem: bullying. An online bullying epidemic is now pushing parents, teens, teachers and technology companies to try even harder to mitigate the misery inflicted on its victims.
The connection between bullying and suicide is deeper than once believed, an updated report from the American Academy of Pediatrics indicates. Suicide was identified as the No. 2 cause of teen deaths.

With everyone (ourselves included) using the term ‘iPhone 7’ to refer to this year’s iPhone, it can be easy to forget that the name isn’t a given. With the new iPhone expected to be only a minor iteration on the iPhone 6/6s design-wise – effectively a second ‘S’ year – there have been suggestions that Apple might use some other naming scheme to reflect the fact.

External Link: Developer Survey Dings Mac App Store

DevMate, a development and distribution platform for Mac developers, conducted a survey of 679 Mac developers to get their thoughts on the Mac App Store. Interestingly, 42 percent of respondents sell on both the Mac App Store and outside of it; however, those who sell both ways see roughly equivalent revenue from both channels. Overall, developers were overwhelmingly negative in their appraisal of the Mac App Store, leading to astonishingly low Net Promoter Score ratings. What ticks developers off the most? The Mac App Store’s unclear and unwieldy review process, the 30 percent transaction fees, the lack of upgrades and trials, and no two-way communication with customers. If only an interviewer would ask Tim Cook about these findings!

With Apple looking all but certain to be dropping the 3.5mm headphone socket in favor of audio via the Lightning socket of the iPhone 7, Intel backs the move to digital audio but suggests Apple is using the wrong connector, at least in its iOS devices.

The chipmaker has announced that it will be adding digital audio to the USB-C spec later this year, reports CNET, and that this will be ‘the right connector for audio’ …

Its code contains a reference to Sauron, the main villain in The Lord of the Rings, according to Symantec. The APT spyware is called "ProjectSauron" or "Strider" in Kaspersky's report.

We might see an ‘iMac Pro’ with an AMD Zen processor...

A new rumor says a new iMac will launch in the last quarter of the year with either the latest Intel chipset, Kaby Lake, or AMD’s Zen processor, as well as AMD’s Polaris Graphics set.

My take: we’ll certainly see an updated iMac, probably in October. It won’t pack a Zen processor (powerful, but pricey), but will include a Polaris graphics card. It will pack a Kaby Lake processor — IF they’re available in time in bulk. Right now there’s some question as to whether that will happen. The caveat to this situation is if Apple decides to discontinue the Mac Pro line and offer an “iMac Pro” with a Zen chip, which boasts eight cores and 16 threads  

Don’t expect any major design changes to the all-in-one. However, it’s very possible that Apple may offer all Macs with flash drives only, dropping the Fusion drives that have been...

Now here's a technology that sounds like a fun addition to an iMac and a replacement for the Thunderbolt Display (and on an Apple-branded HDTV, should the company reconsider plans for such a device): Ultra-D. It's 3D without the glasses.

Stream TV Networks is the company behind the technology. Ultra-D technology allows users to watch content in fully adjustable 4K glasses-free 3D. The breakthrough solution received the Technology Award from the Advanced Imaging Society.

The first Ultra-D products were a 28-inch Ultra-D PC monitor prototype — designed for gaming and medical applications — and a 4K tablet-sized 10-inch Ultra-D panel for glasses-free 3D on the go. Televisions – both big and small – are currently in various stages of development, along with tablets, phones and all-in-one PC’s.

According to the folks at Stream TV, Ultra-D converts all content (even non-3D) in “stunning detail, alleviating...

Rumor: a Final Cut Pro X update and a revamped Mac...

There are rumors of a big Final Cut Pro upgrade coming in October. The rumor mill also suggests (hopes?) that a revamped Mac Pro might debut at the same time.

The FCPX Creative Summit of Oct. 28-30 would be a opportune time for Apple to roll out a new version of FCPX and an upgraded Mac Pro. What’s more, code in Mac OS X El Capitan hints that a new Mac Pro could arrive soon, according to the Learn Final Cut website.

My take: although the Mac Pro hasn’t been updated since 2013, I won’t be surprised to see the high-end desktop discontinued with Apple reasoning that the iMac its current form, offers lots of power and, with Thunderbolt, impressive expansion opportunities. I could be wrong — and, for the sake of Mac Pro fans, I hope I am. On the bright side (for pro users...
