You’re nobody in the analyst world unless you’re predicting a ‘supercycle’ for the iPhone 8 – a huge increase in sales over and above the normal level expected for a new iPhone. Pretty much every analyst on the planet is predicting one this year, with sales expected to exceed those of the earlier supercycle seen for the iPhone 6.

But Nomura says that even these predictions are under-estimating the likely popularity of this year’s iPhones …

HDMI 2.1 specification notes released, could bring...

The HDMI standard is about to get that much niftier.

Version 2.1 of the HDMI specification has been released. The new version of the standard includes eARC support for object-based audio and advanced audio signal control, wider dynamic HDR, and “Game Mode VRR” allowing a GPU to change the refresh rate of the image on the fly.

The standard was developed by the HDMI Forum’s Technical Working Group whose members represent some of the world’s leading manufacturers of consumer electronics, personal computers, mobile devices, cables and components.

HDMI and its new cabling remains backwards compatible to older equipment and the new specification will be available to all HDMI 2.0 Adopters and they will be notified when it is released early in the second quarter of 2017.

Dell debuts world’s first 32-inch, 8K monitor (who...

There have been rumors of an iMac with Retina 8K display. I’ve predicted that we wouldn’t see one before 2020, but I may be wrong. At this week’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES), Dell introduced the UP3218K, world’s first 32-inch, 8K monitor.

A Retina 4K display has 4096 x 2304 resolution. A 5K display has 5120 x 2880 resolution. An 8K display would have an incredible 7680 x 4320 resolution.

Juniper Research forecasts that 8K smart TV shipments will grow more than threefold between 2020 and 2021, to reach over 400,000 per annum by the end of the forecast period.

Of course, even if Apple does release an 8K iMac, only a few of us might be able to afford it. Dell’s UP3218K will be launching later this year, for a whopping $4,999. And, currently, there’s only one commercially available 8K TV currently on the market (pictured) -- it's from LG and is priced at $133,000) --  so 8K content is a long way from becoming...

Apple tech supports UPMC Susquehanna Surgical Center

Doctors and nurses are drawn to Apple’s iPad to assist in treating patients at UPMC Susquehanna. Surgery Center and Extended Care Unit Patient Care Manager Deanna Shamsie, RN, BSN, says the installation of Apple technology has streamlined communication among the UPMC Susquehanna perioperative team. 

Medical staff use a computer stationed at the main desk of the new Surgery Center at Williamsport Regional Medical Center to log patient data for daily surgical procedures that include everything from heart valve replacement to tonsillectomies. Greater than 30 iPads mounted to the wall of each pre- and post-op patient bay include a touchscreen checklist for medical staff to press to indicate the patient’s status with a time stamp. Once the patient is assigned a bed, a nurse touches the iPad to begin tracking the time for the patient’s experience. The patient’s record includes the nurse’s name and milestones of surgical care that are checked off throughout their experience.

Mattel and Microsoft reveal Aristotle, a tabletop...

Let’s face it: The first digital assistants for the home—Amazon Echo and Google Home—often feel like simple Internet portals with thin veneers of humanity to make them feel more warm and fuzzy. But now Mattel is trying to go beyond that with Aristotle, a personality-driven hardware assistant designed just for kids.

Through a partnership with Microsoft (which will lend its Cortana digital assistance technology to the project), the $249 Aristotle straddles the line between a digital nanny for parents and a teaching companion for kids. Though it all might sound a bit hokey, the hardware’s pedigree is sound: Aristotle is the brainchild of of Mattel's nabi team, which use...

Official Beats Instagram photo fuels rumors about a...

A photo posted to the official Beats by Dre Instagram page has led some people to suggest that the rumors of a new ‘Jet White’ iPhone 7 are real. The photo is certainly convincing at first glance, depicting an iPhone with a stark white finish and black Apple logo (pictured left). The possibility of a new white iPhone 7 finish, to be released before the iPhone 8 in the fall, was first raised by a report in November.

However, it is unlikely that Beats will leak a new iPhone design ahead of an official unveiling by Apple. Given the device’s characteristics, it seems like what is pictured is actually a silver iPhone 6s or an iPhone 5c …

Apple History: Acorn, a virtual click-wheel-based OS...

Sonny Dickson this evening posted posted a log and video of a never before seen in public version of pre-iPhone era software that was built as an alternative OS to what eventually became iOS.

The OS, which was devised in the iPod’s heyday, was based on a virtual click-wheel that was put on the touch display. A set of menus is navigated with the touch much like one would using an iPod of the time. In the era of multi-touch the idea seems quaint but when everyone is using iPods, the UI makes a lot of sense as a small step rather than the giant leap to iPhone OS, what eventually became iOS.

Over the holidays, Apple removed the New York Times mobile apps, both the English-language version and the Chinese-language version, from the App Store in China. The Times originally reported that its apps were removed on December 23, and Apple confirmed it on Thursday, citing a request from Chinese authorities.

Apple spokesperson Fred Sainz gave the Times the following statement:

“For some time now the New York Times app has not been permitted to display content to most users in China and we have been informed that the app is in violation of local regulations. 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.”

Amazon’s Alexa in your home

At the CES show this week a raft of appliance and home electronics makers said they have added Amazon’s voice-controlled virtual assistant, Alexa, to products ranging from TVs to robot vacuums. For non-techies, CES is the annual Las Vegas geek fest where these companies converge to show off their latest and greatest gizmos and features to more than 100,000 attendees.

We don’t know where this is going yet, but it’s clear that Amazon wants to be the hub in your home, and third-parties are buying in. Siri still seems to be the assistant you carry with you, but not the one that controls your surroundings.

Think of Launchboom’s new wearable Pinn like the love child of a smartwatch and a Bluetooth headset.

The little gadget that clips to your clothing has a single wireless earbud you can detach to take calls, and it can notify you of text messages and email. The companion app lets you customize which smartphone notifications you want to receive, and they scroll by on the small OLED screen.

Mark Hachman

Pinn also acts as a Bluetooth shutter for taking photos, and a remote control for your music. Oh, and if your latest smartphone doesn’t have a headphone jack for some insane reason, the Pinn does. You can plug your favorite headphones into Pinn, then stream music from your phone. There’s no onboard storage for keeping music on the Pinn itself.

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.

Speck is launching two new protective solutions: Presidio CLEAR for MacBook, the company’s first drop-protective laptop case, and Presidio SHOW, the newest addition to the Presidio smartphone line.
