Anyone who subscribes to Amazon Prime, lives in one of the 30 Prime Now cities, and also has an Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, Amazon Tap, Fire Tablet, or...

(credit: Apple)

Apple clearly knows how popular video sharing is over social media, so it created a new way for iOS users to make and share videos. Today, the company announced a new app called Clips, a video-creation app that borrows many features from social media outlets' video-sharing apps but doesn't actually have a social media network attached to it. It appears Apple'...

Apple unveiled a slew of new Watch bands today, here...

From 9to5Toys:

You may have noticed that Apple introduced, upgraded and announced a slew of new products this morning. Amidst the craze of today’s moves was the unveiling of new Apple Watch Bands, including the much sought-after Nike Sport. You may recall that up until today, this popular band was only available with the Series 2 Nike+ model.

The bad news for consumers? Apple continues to charge rather outlandish prices for its official watch bands with prices topping out at $689 for the...

New iPad costs more in £ than $ as Apple prepares...

While a superficial comparison of Apple’s US and UK pricing has led many in the past to accuse the company of price-gouging, this isn’t actually the case. As we illustrated with the recent UK increase in app prices, the net price is actually almost identical in both countries. The same is true of most of Apple’s hardware.

Apple expands Swift Playgrounds to five new languages

Swift Playgrounds on the iPad is already a fantastic way for kids to get acquainted with code strings and variables, and now Apple is opening it up to even more young minds.

Via an update in the App Store, Swift Playgrounds will now support Simplified Chinese, Japanese, French, German, and Latin American Spanish, along with English. All aspects of the app have been updated to support for the new languages, and as an added benefit, “all programming lessons are now localized across five additional languages and are optimized to look even better and run faster than...

Apple's new Clips app is like a simplified...

Apple's latest iOS app is designed to help iPhone and iPad users get social with videos—though it isn't a social network itself. The company's new Clips app lets you add filters, emoji, and animated text to short videos. Think of it like a mashup of Snapchat and iMovie.

The videos can be one clip or multiple clips. Apple says the new app will make it quick and easy to create multi-clip videos “without timelines, tracks or complicated editing tools.” Like other apps, you touch and hold a button to shoot live video or add photos, then you can add filters, speech bubbles, emoji and other items afterward. There are also stock music options, animated backgrounds, and text.

You don’t have to buy the special-edition Nike+ version of the Apple Watch Series 2 to get your hands on that breathable perforated Sport band anymore. Apple just refreshed its accessory lineup for spring, and the $49 Nike option is a highlight for athletes.

In addition to the Nike Sport band, which comes in three colors, Apple also introduced three new colors for its regular $49 Sport bands, a new $49 wide-stripe nylon band in six colors, and three colors for the $149 leather classic buckle option, complete with new buckle design.

Apple iPad is a Faster, Cheaper iPad Air 2

Say good-bye to the iPad Air, it's just the iPad now. From a report on CNET: Apple announced on Tuesday morning that it will be dropping the price of the 9.7-inch iPad by $70. The tablet's A8X processor will be getting an upgrade too, jumping over to the A9 chip used in the iPad Pro. The upgrade will replace the iPad Air 2, but the iPad Mini 4 will live on, starting at $399. The updated pricing will start on Friday, at $329 for the 32GB model and $459 for the 32GB WiFi with cellular service model. It's Apple's cheapest iPad, after the company decided to replace the iPad Mini 2, which started at $269. Although Apple's iPad is leading the tablet market, it's still a tumbling one as demand takes a decline thanks to people holding onto their tablets longer.

Apple's new iPad lineup slashes prices, the...

While we’re still waiting for a fresh iPad with barely-there bezels to make an appearance, Apple has returned to its roots with a new 9.7-inch model simply called iPad. And if you had previously balked at buying an iPad Air 2 because the price was too high, you might want to take notice.

Apple hasn’t technically added a new model to the iPad lineup, but it has bolstered the low end. Gone is the aging iPad Air 2 (as well as the whole Air branding), and in its place is a new model that looks exactly the same, with a 9.7-inch retina screen, Touch ID, 32GB or 128GB of storage, and the same color choices (silver...

Maybe I had my hopes too high, but today’s Apple announcements disappointed. A new 9.7-inch iPad. A (PRODUCT)RED Special Edition of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. A new Clips app for iOS devices. All well and good — but underwhelming.

Where are the new iPad Pros? Where are the new iMacs? Why is Clips iOS only and not available for macOS? On the bright side, my credit card can remain in my wallet.

Guess we’ll just have to hope that my AWT compadre, Steve, is right and that Apple plans an April 4 special event at its new Apple Park headquarters. However, April 4 is less than two weeks away, so chances are increasing that, if such an event is coming, it will be held later in the month.

Apple has dropped the 32GB iPad mini 4 from its store and reduced the price of the 128GB model to $399. This is the second change to the device’s storage since its initial launch in 2015. Last year Apple did away with the 16GB and 64GB versions of the device and adjusted the pricing. Now the 128GB model is the only version available, but it now costs what the 16GB version did when the device first launched a year and a half ago. In addition…

Apple's bold new red iPhone 7 turns upgrading...

Apple just made upgrading to an iPhone 7 a philanthropic decision by adding a red special edition to the lineup. The new red aluminum finish, which is available to order for both iPhone 7 and 7 Plus in-store and online on March 24, is a fundraising effort for the Global Fund. Apple will contribute a portion of red iPhone sales to the fight against AIDS and HIV.

The two new red iPhones will come in 128GB and 256GB storage variations and start at $749 in the U.S. Apple will sell the special editions in more than 40 countries by the end of March, with Brazil, Chile, Colombia, India, and Turkey to come in April. If you live in the U.S., U.K., or China and are part of the iPhone Upgrade Program, you’ll be able to snag an unlocked red iPhone with AppleCare+. In the U.S., the 128GB iPhone 7 will start at $37 a month with the ability to upgrade every year.

The front and back cameras are the same, but the new iPad is a bit thicker — 7.5mm to the iPad…

The iPad Air 2 was very slender; 6.1mm and 0.96 pounds. The new iPad is relatively bulky, measuring at 7.5mm thin and weighing 1.03 pounds …

The app includes Apple-developed programming lessons, puzzles and challenges that teach core coding concepts, as well as built-in templates to encourage users to express their creativity and create real programs. And it takes full advantage of the power, simplicity and Multi-Touch capabilities of iPad.

Apple has debuted Clips, a new app that allows iPhone and iPad users to create “expressive videos.” It lets you combine video clips, photos and music into videos to share with friends through the Messages app, or on Instagram, Facebook and other social networks.

Clips also introduces Live Titles, a feature that lets users create animated captions and titles using just their voice. Effects including comic book filters, speech bubbles, shapes and full-screen animated posters.

Clips lets users create multi-clip videos on iPhone or iPad without timelines, tracks or complicated editing tools, according to Susan Prescott, Apple’s vice president of Apps Product Marketin. Touch and hold a single button to shoot live video and photos, or add them from the Photo Library. Then add artistic filters, speech bubbles, shapes or emoji. Users can also add full-screen posters with animated backgrounds and customizable text. Clips has dozens of music soundtracks to choose from, and they...

Apple has tweaked the 9.7-inch iPad, added a brighter Retina display and improved performance with prices starting at $329. It’s apparently designed to replace the iPad Air 2.

The tablet features a Retina display with over 3.1 million pixels and is enclosed in a thin aluminum unibody enclosure weighing one pound for great portability and durability. It packs an Apple-designed A9 chip with 64‑bit desktop-class architecture. The front- and back-facing cameras offer exceptional low-light performance and HD video recording. The iPad has support for LTE cellular bands.

The 9.5-inch iPad comes in silver, gold and space gray and starts at $329 for the 32GB with Wi-Fi model and $459 for the 32GB Wi-Fi + Cellular model at Apple.com and Apple Stores. It also comes in 32GB and 128GB models. You can place an order on Friday, March 24.

Apple

Apple quietly announced via press release this morning that it would not be replacing any of its top-end iPads, just its two-year-old midrange iPad Air 2. The company's new mainstream 9.7-inch tablet, called simply "iPad," includes an Apple A9 SoC (not an A9X), but its most exciting feature is its starting price of $329, $70 less than the previous starting price of the Air 2. The tablet will be available to order starting March 24 and will begin shipping next week.

At that price, it actually appears that you take a step back from the design used for the Air 2 and the 9.7-inch iPad Pro. At 1.03 pounds (469g) and 0.29-inches (7.5mm) thick, the tablet is actually almost identical in size to...

Patent report: shape-changing iOS screens, wireless...

Future iPhones and iPads may have screens that can dynamically change their shape. Apple has been granted a patent (number 9,600,070) for an “user interface having changeable topography.”

According to the patent, an iOS device would have a flexible display with a portion that would raise or lower depending on user interaction. Portions, or nodes, on the display could raise to offer the tactile feel of buttons, keys, even a scroll wheel.

Here’s Apple’s summary of the invention: “The user interface can have a shape changeable surface that can selectively alter according to an input so as to provide changeable topography of the user interface. The surface can include individual nodes that can raise above or lower below the initial surface. 

“Alternatively, the surface can include a shape changeable material that can change the shape of portions thereof into discrete shapes above or below the initial surface. Alternatively, the surface can include...

Have your heart set on a speedy new Mac Pro? Given that nothing appears to be on the horizon from Apple, your best bet is to build your own Hackintosh. For about $2,000 you can have a tower machine that will run macOS, Windows, and Linux, with benchmarks way faster than the fastest Mac Pro Apple currently sells.

Technologist Lou Miranda points out new golden age...

It’s an article that ran roughly nine months ago, prior to the release of iOS 10, but it makes some good points.

In the article, technologist and author Lou Miranda points out that the iPad Pro was handicapped by the software available at the time, namely iOS 9. Upon its initial introduction, the original iPhone had great software, but was handicapped by slow hardware.

Miranda then offers the following very relevant points:

Apps can only be as powerful as the operating system they’re running on, and iOS 9 is limited by its support for very old devices with very slow CPUs.

The key here is that iOS can only get as powerful as the slowest hardware that it supports.

Miranda points out that, as of now, we’re entering a golden age for mobile computers, thereby allowing the iOS to start peaking what it can do. The same argument can also be made for the Apple Watch and watchOS, which means there will be next to no limitations as to what the device can...

The fatal flaw in Apple’s Magic keyboard and mouse

Apple’s Magic keyboard and mouse don’t support multiple Macs.

Like many of you, I have a home office setup with a monitor, speakers keyboard and mouse. When I need to get some work done, I plug my MacBook into power, monitor, speakers and I’m off the races. I prefer wireless peripherals because it’s two less cables to plug in.

The problem is that Apple’s latest keyboard (MLA22LL/A) and mouse (MLA02LL/A) took a huge step backwards in functionality because they don’t support multiple Macs. That’s right, you can’t switch between Macs without have to re-pair Apple’s “Magic” peripherals – every time. This defeats the purpose of having wireless peripherals!

I’ve used every incarnation of the Apple’s Bluetooth keyboard and mouse and...

Apple may have something to learn from secretive...

Duan Yongping may have figured out how to beat Apple at its own game in the Chinese marketplace.

The reclusive billionaire founded both Opposition and Vivo, the twin smartphone brands that dealt the world’s largest company a stinging defeat in China last year. Once derided as cheap iPhone knockoffs, they leapfrogged the rankings and shoved Apple Inc. out of the top three in 2016 — when iPhone shipments fell in China for the first time.

Jongping stated that he was able to beat Apple in the region given that Apple didn’t adapt to local competition. Oppo and Vivo employed tactics Apple was reluctant to match, such as cheaper devices with high-end features, for fear of jeopardizing its winning formula elsewhere, Duan said.

“Apple couldn’t beat us in China because even they have flaws,” the 56-year-old electronics mogul said. “They’re maybe too stubborn sometimes. They made a lot of great things, like their operating system, but we surpass them in other areas.”...

New Drobo 5N2 adds Ethernet port-bonding, upgraded...

Drobo has been on a roll over the past two years, adding 7 new products to its line of storage appliances in that time. Today, Drobo released the Drobo 5N2 NAS, billed as the fastest 5-bay Drobo NAS yet. At $499 for an "empty" device that can be filled with a mixture of 3.5-inch HDDs or SSDs, the Drobo 5N2 offers a bump up in performance for connected home users, media professionals, and small businesses.

Image showing paired 1Gbps Ethernet ports, internal battery-backed cache

The device comes with two 1Gbps Ethernet ports that can be bonded for twice the throughput, also acting as redundant ports in the case of a router failure. The processor in the device has been upgraded to provide increased speed and throughput as well. The 5N2 can handle a 64TB volume size, and the device can be set up to create a smaller backup volume for use with Time Machine or other backup solutions. 

Like the other recent Drobo...

Apple under fire for paying $0 tax on $3B worth of...

Apple has come under fire in New Zealand after it was revealed that it had paid no tax whatsoever in the country for the past decade, despite selling more than NZ$4.2B ($2.96B) worth of products in the country. The NZ Herald said that the company’s tax arrangements had been criticized by parties across the political spectrum.

Green Party co-leader James Shaw said Apple was not paying its fair share. “It is absolutely extraordinary that they are able to get away with paying zero tax in this country. I really like Apple products – they’re incredibly innovative – but it looks like their tax department is even more innovative than their product designers,” Shaw said …

Science fiction fans should download the COMET TV...

If you’re a fan of science fiction (good, bad, and somewhere in between), you should download the COMET TV app for the fourth generation Apple TV. Some of the content is good, while some is incredibly cheesy, in a it’s-so-bad-I-can’t-stop- watching way—but, hey, it’s free.

COMET TV is an American digital broadcast television network owned by the Sinclair Television Group subsidiary of the Sinclair Broadcast Group and operated by the MGM Television division of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. The network focuses on science fiction with some supernatural, horror, adventure and fantasy series and films, sourced mainly from the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer film and TV library.

In addition to the app, COMET TV will continue its broadcast offerings to customers in over 100 markets as well as online.

COMET TV’s app included live playback of the network’s broadcast feed with an integrated program schedule along with information on the...

The idea of a red iPhone has been rumored before and it’s something that doesn’t really justify a dedicated Apple product event.

A transparent Mac within the decade? Maybe

I'm not sure we'll ever see this on a Mac, but Microsoft and Jinha Lee, a MIT graduate working at Samsung on TV interfaces, developed a prototype of a "transparent" computer that lets you reach "inside" and "touch" digital content. 

Lee told the BBC that allowing folks to interact with machines in the same way they do with solid objects could make computing much more intuitive. In fact, he thinks transparent computers will come into general use within a decade.

The SpaceTop 3D system consists of a transparent LED display with built-in cameras that track the user's gestures and eye movements. It consists of a clear-glass display that allows input using voice control, touchless motions and eye-tracking.

You place your hands behind the screen to scroll or type just as you would with a regular computer. However, you can also raise your hands up to grab and manipulate the virtual 3D elements.

Every March, downtown Austin transforms into a bustling hub filled with the latest, art, tech, music, and film, taking on an almost “Spring Break” like vibe as out-of-towners flock to the Texas capital to take it all in. South by Southwest is a conference unlike any other—it’s less of a launchpad for new products, and more of an “ideas” show that brings people from various fields together to talk about what comes next.

One question we get all the time is, “What is SXSW even about?” What isn’t it about, really? By day, representatives from some of the biggest companies in the world (like Google, Apple, and Sony) come to speak and show off their most bonkers prototypes, just for fun. By night, they hire bands to come play at their pop-up space and host events. Startups arrange demos, enter contests, and give out business cards and free app downloads in hopes of becoming the next Twitter. Tech-centric art installations pop up all over town, showing how the varying...

How to monitor your kids' Nintendo Switch...

Nintendo’s new Switch offers the best of both worlds when it comes to gaming hardware. It’s a home device that you can easily drop into a dock and play HD games on your television, but it’s also a portable system that can be played anywhere you are, or even propped up with a kickstand for on-the-go multiplayer showdowns.

However, if you’re a parent, that sort of approach adds another layer of difficulty if you’re concerned about screen time limits, or want to keep your kids away from mature content or online communication. If you can’t rely on the hardware being played, let alone stored in a single place, how will you keep an eye on how it’s being used?

Apple has said it expects the store to go back up in about five hours from now.

Leading the rumors, many sources expect Apple to launch new iPad hardware imminently, with updates to the 9.7-inch iPad Pro, 12.9-inch iPad Pro and a new 10.5-inch bezel-less iPad all being reported and speculated …

The robots, built by a company called Starship Technologies, are about the size of a golden retriever and roll around sidewalks with relative ease. They’ll be used to lug food from restaurants to customers on short-distance orders, spanning anywhere from one to two miles.

This is starting on Thursday. I think it’s cool as hell—I’m going to give it a try for sure.

Though having premiered on Beats 1 radio, the release was distributed non-exclusively across all major streaming services. Which makes the streaming figures interesting, as Apple Music has about 20 million subscribers as compared to Spotify’s 100 million.

Since getting an Apple Watch last fall, I’ve been disappointed by the lack of content. To help address this, I made my own game a few months ago (a 3D RPG), but obviously it still didn’t address the bigger issue. An idea I had was to port an existing catalog, and emulation made perfect sense.

Google Maps Lets You Record Your Parking Location,...

Google Maps has received a neat feature that will help users remember where they parked. "This appears as a new menu option when you tap the blue dot, and will place a 'P' icon on the map so you can find your way back to your spot," reports Ars Technica. From the report: Google had already introduced its own proactive parking saving feature via Google Now, but it had worked by tapping into your phone's sensors and making a determination that you had most likely parked at a given spot. Sometimes, you might see this information appear when it was unwarranted, however -- like if you got off a bus or exited a taxi, Google says. The new feature in Google Maps requires a manual entry, but this is actually a bit of an advantage over the guessing done by Google Now, because it allows you to input more information about your spot. Like Apple Maps, you can add notes about where you parked -- something that's helpful for jotting down cross streets or which floor of a garage you're on, for...
