Apple’s wind farm project developer wants bigger,...

Avangrid Renewables, the project developer for Apple’s Montague (Oregon) Wind Power Facility, is seeking a permit amendment for the Montague Wind Power Facility that would allow it to use a turbine model with a rotor diameter of 136 meters and generating capacity of 3.6 megawatts.

According to the Portland Business Journal, that’s a “big step up from the most powerful turbines spinning in the Northwest today, which can crank out 2.5 megawatts.” In its annual sustainability report last month, Apple said that Montague its “largest (renewable energy) project to date.”

Apple has solar farms, hydroelectric plants and biogas facilities in Oregon, North Carolina, California, Nevada and Arizona.

Apple expects 560,000 megawatt-hours of electricity annually from its portion of the wind farm. That’s equal to the electricity usage of about...

European Commissioner: Ireland is taking too long to...

European Commissioner for Competition Margrethe Vestager has criticized Ireland over the length of time it is taking to recover unpaid Apple taxes. In an interview with CNBC, the Danish politician complained that the Government is "taking too long" on the issue but is hopeful that the €13 billion will be retrieved from the Cupertino tech giant "very soon."

Vestager also dismissed concerns that the European Commission's August 2016 ruling that Ireland had granted Apple illegal tax benefits would harm future investment in Europe.

"I haven’t seen any evidence of that,” she said.

European Commission has levied a €13 billion (about $14.5 billion) back tax demand against Apple. The Europe’s anti-trust and consumer investigation agency has claimed that Ireland, Luxembourg and the Netherlands have attracted investment and jobs by helping big...

Did a mysterious Lost & Found folder just appear...

[AUTOPLAY, grrr]

Glenn Fleishman, Macworld:

Joseph Pierpoint discovered a folder in his Trash labeled “Lost & Found.” When he opened it, he found it contained over 50,000 files. Worse, “Any attempts to send these files to the Trash are thwarted by interruptions that state that this kind of solution is infeasible for one reason or another.”

Some interesting details here about fsck and the underlying Unix folder named lost+found.

Christina Farr, CNBC:

Tim Cook has been spotted at the Apple campus test-driving a device that tracks blood sugar, which was connected to his Apple Watch.

A source said that Cook was wearing a prototype glucose-tracker on the Apple Watch, which points to future applications that would make the device a “must have” for millions of people with diabetes — or at risk for the disease.

If Apple can crack this problem, a bloodless, continuous, glucose tracking Apple Watch, they’d help a lot of people, sell a ton of Apple Watches at the same time.

Bob O’Donnell, in this Recode article:

Another fascinating aspect of these digital assistants is that they have the potential to completely devalue the underlying platforms on which they run.

Apple opposes the ‘Fair Repair Act’ in New York state

Lobbying records in New York state show that Apple, Verizon, and the tech industry's largest trade organizations are opposing a bill that would make it easier for consumers and independent companies to repair your electronics, according to a Motherboard report.

The bill, called the "Fair Repair Act," would require electronics companies to sell replacement parts and tools to the general public, would prohibit "software locks" that restrict repairs, and in many cases would require companies to to provide consumers and third-party repair shops access to service manuals and parts. Apple has already...

New rumors about the iPhone 8 and the 10.5-inch iPad...

According to a new report from DigiTimes — TPK Holdings is charging between $18 and $22 for the technology for 3D Touch, so the 3D Touch tech in the upcoming “iPhone 8” will cost Apple more than the company anticipated. 

Due to the additional bonding of glass covers, overall processing cost for OLED-based 3D Touch solution is about 50% higher than that for the LCD-based one but the quotes for the client is about 150% higher. The Sellers Research Firm (that’s me) thinks the report is on target, which means the high-end iPhone 8 -- shown in a fanciful mock-up by iPhone 8look -- will have a price tag of $1,000 or higher.

DigiTimes also reports that Apple is said to be boosting production of its upcoming 10.5-inch iPad Pro, which means it’s “increasingly possible” we’ll see it arrive sometime over the next couple of months.

New York state records reveal the sums Apple, Verizon, Lexmark and other tech companies have spent there on lobbying efforts against right to repair legislation.

That opposition was successful, lawmakers backing down.

Rumor: Apple CEO Tim Cook spotted wearing glucose...

If The Timster is doing it, that tends to indicate where Apple’s upcoming products might be going.

Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook is said to have been spotted on his company’s corporate headquarters wearing a new, unannounced Apple Watch accessory that could be used to measure a user’s blood sugar levels in an non-intrusive fashion.

CNBC has reported that Tim Cook has been spotted wearing the prototype sense. It’s unknown as to whether this is an Apple-made device or peripheral created by an outside medical company.

The report also said that Cook even publicly discussed the device during an appearance at the University of Glasgow back in February. He said the device helped him understand how his body reacted to the foods he eats, and allowed him to keep his blood sugar more constant.

Per Cook:

“I’ve been wearing a continuous glucose monitor for a few weeks,” Cook said without mentioning connectivity to the Apple Watch. “I just took it off...

Tablet, notebook ban reportedly off the table for...

The proposed ban on tablets and notebooks from cabin baggage on flights between Europe and the USA have reportedly been shelved …

The ban, which proposed preventing electronic devices larger than a smartphone on inbound flights to the USA from 10 airports located mostly in the Middle East and Northern Africa was offered in response to intelligence from terrorist threats.

It was later suggested that the ban might be extended to flights from the UK and other European countries, with a further report earlier this month suggesting that the idea was ‘under active consideration.’

Per the BBC, the ban may not be extended.

US and EU officials have decided against a ban on laptops and tablets in cabin baggage on flights from Europe. But after a four-hour meeting in Brussels to discuss the threats to aviation security, officials said other measures were still being considered.

The decision caused some relief among aviation experts, who stated that a...

Apple granted a patent for a headphone/speaker combo...

Apple has been granted a patent (number 20170142509) for “dual mode headphones and methods for constructing the same.” Per the invention, the headphones can be moved between a first, in-ear position and a second, speaker position. 

A sensor in the headphones can detect the current position of the headphones, and can change the mode of the circuit to correspond to the detected current position. For example, the sensor can change between an in-ear mode in which the amplifier is bypassed and a speaker mode in which the amplifier is powered and used. In some cases, the headphones can include a sensor for preventing the speaker mode when the headphones are positioned near a user's ears.

In the patent filing, Apple notes that users typically listen to content on their portable devices using headphones, although there are speakers available that can be connected to the portable devices to enable multiple users to listen in at the same time. This approach, however, may...

Soba by Bluelounge can help reduce cable clutter

By Aaron Lee

Like most Mac users, you probably suffer from cable clutter with various cables and cords littering your workspace. The $24.95 Soba by Bluelounge can help alleviate the problem.

Soba zips loose cables up and consolidates them into a single tube that you can route and affix along walls, under desks, and just about anywhere. You use the Vortex zipper in a sliding motion to open and route cables. Once the zipper passes, Vortex technology will auto-coil the tube, bundling the cables inside.

Soba comes with 10 feet of vortex tube, two end caps, three mounting caps, one y-split, one Vortex zipper tool, and five rubber bands. It's available in black and white.

External Link: HandBrake Exploit Leads to Stolen...

Panic co-founder Steven Frank has posted an embarrassing confession: after he inadvertently downloaded and installed a compromised version of HandBrake, hackers were able to steal source code to Panic’s apps. There’s no evidence that customer information, sync data, or Panic’s Web site were compromised. However, you should avoid downloading any Panic app that doesn’t come directly from Panic’s Web site or the Mac App Store, and Steven is asking users to report any unofficial versions that people see in the wild. Kudos to Panic for being so open about this and handling it quickly, and take this as a real-world lesson in why it’s important to stay alert when it comes to online security.

The iPhone 8 is expected to debut later this year touting a 5.8-inch OLED ‘bezel-less’ display incorporated into a new-design glass and stainless chassis. There have been many rumors about Apple increasing the price of the model above the current iPhone range (128 GB iPhone 7 Plus tops out at $969), with some people referring to the device as an ‘iPhone Pro’.

Higher component costs support the idea of a premium price tag, and this is exactly what Economic Daily News is reporting today. It claims that the 3D Touch module in the OLED iPhone will cost Apple 150% more than the equivalent parts in the LCD iPhone 7 …

Google Launches Google Assistant On the iPhone

At its I/O 2017 developer conference, Google announced the Google Assistant is coming to iOS as a standalone app. Previously, the only way for iOS users to get access to the Assistant was through Allo, the Google messaging app nobody uses. For those interested, you can download the Google Assistant on your iOS device here, but keep in mind that your device needs to be running iOS 9.1 or higher. VentureBeat reports: Google Assistant for iPhone won't ship on Apple's mobile devices by default, and naturally won't be as tightly integrated into the OS. But it is addressable by voice and does work with other Google apps on Apple's platform. Apple has API restrictions on iOS, so Google Assistant can't set alarms like Siri can. It can, however, send iMessages for you or start playing music in third-party apps like Spotify. You also won't be able to use the Home button to trigger Google Assistant, so you'll need to use the app icon or a widget.

Pioneer’s expanded NEX platform adds CarPlay support

Pioneer Electronics has expanded its NEX platform with five new, Apple CarPlay-compatible NEX in-dash multimedia receivers: the double-DIN 7-inch LCD AVH-2330NEX and AVH-2300NEX and double-DIN 6.2-inch LCD AVH-1330NEX and AVH-1300NEX models.

The AVH-3300NEX expands the NEX line-up into the smaller, more universal single-DIN in-dash receiver size, providing, for the first time, a smartphone connectivity solution that purportedly fits into many older and collectible cars coveted by automotive enthusiasts.

Pioneer’s CarPlay-compatible NEX in-dash receivers offer consumers the ability to upgrade the vehicles they already own with the latest iPhone technology specifically designed for the car. Compatible with iPhone 5 and later models, CarPlay provides a simplified way to use your iPhone interface on a car’s touch screen, giving users access to Siri voice controls, as well as Apple Maps, Apple...

Review: iWalk Watchman Backup Battery for Apple...

While external battery packs are becoming pretty generic, we've generally been pretty impressed with what iWalk has done with its battery packs over the years, providing good, high-capacity battery options at pretty reasonable prices. So we were somewhat intrigued when iWalk announced their new Watchman battery pack that provides the same 10,000 mAh capacity that the company has been known for, while also incorporating an Apple Watch charger. While iWalk is a bit late to the Apple Watch charging game, it's worth noting that it carries around twice the capacity of competing Apple Watch battery packs, albeit with a corresponding price premium. {/exp:char_limit}

App Maker's Code Stolen in Malware Attack

Mac and iOS software developer Panic has had the source code for several of its apps stolen. An anonymous reader writes: Panic founder Steven Frank said in a blog post that it happened after he downloaded an infected copy of the video encoding tool Handbrake. He said there was no sign that any customer data was accessed and that Panic's web server was not affected. Users have been warned to download Panic's apps only from its website or the Apple App Store. Panic is the creator of web editing and file transfer apps Coda and Transmit, and the video game Firewatch. On May 2, Handbrake was hacked, with the Mac version of the app on one of the site's download servers replaced by a malicious copy. In what Mr Frank called "a case of extraordinarily bad luck", he downloaded the malicious version of Handbrake and launched it "without stopping to wonder why Handbrake would need admin privileges... when it hadn't before. And that was that, my Mac was completely, entirely compromised in three...

External Link: Belkin Adding HomeKit Support to Wemo

Last year, Belkin, which makes the popular Wemo line of home automation accessories, rejected adding HomeKit support because it would require new hardware. Now Belkin has reversed course, telling 9to5Mac, “Wemo is committed to bringing HomeKit support to our line of smart home solutions and will be providing more details soon.” Belkin didn’t say what caused the change of heart, but it’s possible that Apple will announce loosened HomeKit restrictions at WWDC.

Apple is shoring up Siri for its next generation of...

John Mannes, TechCrunch:

Siri is a critical component of Apple’s vision for the future, so integral that it was willing to spend $200 million to acquire Lattice Data over the weekend. The startup was working to transform the way businesses deal with paragraphs of text and other information that lives outside neatly structured databases.

And:

Apple paid roughly $10 million for each of Lattice’s 20 engineers. This is generally considered to be fair market value. Google paid about $500 million for DeepMind back in 2014. At that time, the startup had roughly 75 employees, of which a portion were machine learning developers.

That math is fascinating. Machine learning seems a fantastic path for developers to explore.

Apple relies on a number of partnerships, including a major one with Yahoo, to provide Siri with the facts it needs to answer questions. It competes with Google, a company that possesses what is largely considered to be the crème de la...

Twitter rolls out new privacy tools as it ditches Do...

Twitter is dumping its support for Do Not Track (DNT), changing how it shares user data with third parties, and holding any web browsing data it collects for a longer duration—all to better aid in ad targeting, of course.

But at the same time, Twitter is giving users more control over what kind of user data can be used for targeted advertising, as well as more transparency about the information it collects about you.

The privacy features are active now, but the new privacy policies that dump DNT, change data sharing policies, and hold your data longer don't come into effect until June 18. Here's a look at what's going on.

Checking your advertising data

If you go to the "Your Twitter data" section of your account settings, you'll see there's a lot of information there about your activity and how you're being advertised to.

John Voorhees, MacStories:

Early last year, James Rath, a young filmmaker who was born legally blind, created a video about the impact Apple products have had on his life. That video caught the attention of Apple.

In the ensuing months, Rath’s YouTube career has taken off and he’s become a strong advocate for the blind.

To mark Global Accessibility Awareness Day, Tim Cook spoke with Rath and two other YouTubers, Rikki Poynter and Tatiana Lee about accessibility. Cook and Poynter, who is deaf, discussed closed captioning and how accessibility is a core value at Apple. Lee talked to Cook about the Apple Watch and its ability to track wheelchair use. Rath and Cook explored the history of Apple’s commitment to accessibility and the democratization of technology.

RIP Blobs: Google redesigns emojis

Emojipedia:

Having appeared in various shapes and sizes since Android 4.4; the amorphous blob that defined Google’s emoji appearance since 2013 is being retired.

In its place: a redesign of every emoji in Android, coming as part of Android “O” which was announced today at Google I/O.

Follow the link, take a look at the new artwork. It’s certainly an improvement. Given the fragmentation of Android updates, not sure how big an impact this will have.

Also mentioned by Google is functionality which would allow users to download newer emoji fonts to support the latest emojis even on older Android versions.

So that’s something. But it requires specific action on the part of the user. If they’ve not moved to update to a newer phone or newer version of Android, not sure how effective this will be.
