ABI Research: over half of mobile devices will...

Developments in display interface technologies are making it possible such that your personal mobile device -- such as the iPad -- may become the hub for all your computing experiences at home, in the office, and on-the-go over the next two years, according to ABI Research. 

New research from the research group finds that hundreds of millions of computers, displays, and projectors offer this capability today and 2.1 billion smartphones and tablets are forecasted to ship with this functionality through 2018. Applications range from mirroring the mobile display for presentations and mobile gaming, to second screen uses for more immersive content experiences, and remote control/navigation applications for VCR-style content control.

"Wired technologies currently have the upper-hand since it’s only a matter of using a compatible cable," says ABI Research senior practice director Jeff Orr. "In the next couple years, the battleground will shift toward the use of 60GHz...

Apple updates iWork, begins adding real-time...

Some nifty stuff might in be coming down the pipe for iWork.

On Tuesday, Apple released Pages 6.0, Keynote 7.0 and Numbers 4.0 via the Mac App Store. The updates deliver the real-time, cross-platform iWork collaboration that the company promised earlier this month.

In addition to the updates, Apple is apparently working on real-time collaboration features for the suite. This would allow users to edit presentations, documents or spreadsheets with others at the same time across iOS, macOS and web.

Following the update, users can make their files public or choose whom to share them with. Users can also see who’s viewing or editing a document at any given moment, participants’ cursors being visible as they edit a file.

How to remove your Apple Watch band

I’m sure you ordered your new Apple Watch with a band you really like. However, if you get bored with it, or simply want to swap out bands for different occasions, it’s easy to do by using the band release buttons on the back of the smartwatch.

First, place your Apple Watch face down over a clean surface like a lint-free, micro-fiber cloth or soft, padded mat so you don't scratch the screen. If you have a Link Bracelet, press the quick release button on a link to separate the band into two pieces. 

Now hold down the band release button, then slide the band across to remove it. If the band doesn't slide out, press the band release button again and make sure that you hold it down. Make sure the text on the band is facing you, then slide the new band in until you feel and hear a click.

Don’t force the band into the slot. If you don't feel or hear a click, slide the band to the left, then to the right. If the band is installed properly, it won’t freely slide until...

iOmini is an attractive (literally) universal stand...

When it comes to universal stands for cell phones and small tablets, they don't get more sturdy, durable or manly (think the "Ford tough" commercials), than the $80 iOmini. However, it does have some drawbacks. For example, it doesn’t work well at all with the 12.9-inch iPad Pro.

The stand -- crafted out of precision-machined steel -- lifts your phone or tablet up five inches and lets you rotates it in any direction, offering you a variety of viewing angles. The iOmini works best for small tablets like the iPad mini and smartphones like the iPhone. If you need a stand or mount for a full-size tablet (like the iPad), check out the iOstand, a larger version of the iOmini.

The iOmini consists of four pieces: a weighted base, the pedestal with a ball on the end of it, powerful magnet (the iOcore) that adheres to the ball, and a metal ring (the iOadapt). The iOmini relies on the iOmounts system.

Google Allo Messaging App Launches For IOS and...

An anonymous reader writes: Google has officially launched their long-awaited messaging app for iOS and Android, called Google Allo. There are several unique features associated with this app that Google hopes will win you over. Smart Reply lets you respond to messages with just a tap, so you can send a quick "yup" in response to a friend asking "Are you on your way?" It will also suggest responses for photos. For example, if you send a picture of a dog, Smart Reply might suggest a heart emoji or "Super cute!" message, which you can select and send with a tap. Google says Smart Reply will improve over time and adjust to your style. You can also send large or small text and emojis, as well as draw on pictures. There's an incognito mode that will activate end-to-end encryption, discreet notifications, and message expiration on your chats. Arguably best of all is the Google Assistant that can be added to your chats to automatically cater useful information to you depending on what is...

The Week in iOS Accessories: Look ma! No wires!

Hear's to you, bud!

With the advent of iPhone 7, accessory-makers are rushing to offer their own wireless earphone options. This week’s roundup includes a few more. Read on!

BeSound

The Thunder ($149 MSRP through Indiegogo) noise-cancelling Lightning headphones are popular—the product has quintupled its crowdsourcing goal with two weeks left to go during its fund-raising period. Why? Maybe because it promises “powerful noise cancellation” without using too much power: Just 1 percent of a battery’s reserves per hour, “meaning you can kick back and relax and not worry about battery levels.”

Apple Patents a Paper Bag

mspohr writes: Continuing its leadership in innovation, Apple has patented a paper bag. We all remember the groundbreaking "rounded corners" innovation, now we have a paper bag! Just try to make your own paper bag and you'll be speaking with Apple lawyers. (Note: In fairness to Apple, this is a "special" paper bag which is stronger due to numerous improvements on your ordinary recycled paper bag -- just don't try to copy it.) The patent application summarizes the bag as follows: "A paper bag is disclosed. The paper bag may include a bag container formed of white solid bleached sulfate paper with at least 60% post-consumer content." Apple's patented paper bags are designed to be sturdy, while remaining "both pearly white and environmentally friendly." Let's just hope they don't remove the handles...

Design as Branding

Farhad Manjoo, in his State of the Art column for The New York Times, published shortly after Apple’s September 7 event, “What’s Really Missing From the New iPhone: Cutting-Edge Design”:

The absence of a jack is far from the worst shortcoming in Apple’s
latest product launch. Instead, it’s a symptom of a deeper issue
with the new iPhones, part of a problem that afflicts much of the
company’s product lineup: Apple’s aesthetics have grown stale.

The column is accompanied by an illustration of a fellow holding an Apple logo in his hand, yawning out of boredom.

In my own take on Apple’s event, I wrote:

Acacia Research Corporation, the largest publicly traded patent-assertion entity, won a $22.1 million verdict against Apple last week.

A jury in the patent hotspot of East Texas found that Apple had infringed US Patent No. 8,055,820, owned by Acacia subsidiary Cellular Communications Equipment LLC. The patent describes a method of how cell phones can use "buffer status reporting" so that phone networks can optimize data usage. The patent originated at Nokia, which sold the patent to Acacia in 2013.

Acacia is in a controversial business that critics refer to as "patent trolling." The firm buys patents from others, uses those patents to bring litigation, and then...

Apple has been operating in Ireland since 1980 and now employs nearly 6,000 people. As we continue to expand our operations in Cork, we are moving our iTunes business there and will support content stores for more than 100 countries from our campus at Hollyhill.

This move was originally announced back in June. From this 2012 article in the New York Times:

Here's a bit of good news for those who are trying to use iOS 10's new Home app to create a Siri-controlled home. Lock and hardware manufacturer Schlage today released an update to its Schlage Sense app that allows the Schlage Sense Smart Deadbolt lock to work with the Home app. iOS users get push notifications when their deadbolt is locked and unlocked, making it easier to keep an eye on home security.

The Schlage Sense Smart Deadbolt will now let you "talk to unlock" when you're within Bluetooth range of the lock, or users can tap the touchscreen numeric pad to enter a code if they're outside without a key or iPhone.

Lock activity can be monitored if you want to know when the door has been locked or unlocked, and a built-in alarm senses door attacks.

IHS Makit estimates that a 32GB iPhone 7 requires $219.80 in bill of materials costs. The firm's preliminary analysis further reasons an additional $5 basic manufacturing cost, bringing the total cost to produce the above-mentioned configuration to $224.80 (that’s an unsubsidized retail price of $649). 

Compared to IHS’s 6s examination, this total is $36.89 higher per unit. The research group hasn’t yet completed its teardown of the iPhone 7 Plus.

With the component strategy modified, improved capabilities, doubled storage capacity across the iPhone lineup and competition from other makers, the increase in bill of materials appears to represent a natural progression of the cost of doing business within a demanding smartphone market,” notes Seeking Alpha (www.seekingalpha.com).

The report says Apple’s bill of materials for a 4.7-inch iPhone 7 with the base 32GB storage is $220.80. Apple sells this iPhone 7 for $649 at retail so there’s plenty of room for Apple to make money. Full breakdown of component costs after the break …

It Took a Couple Decades, But the Music Business...

According to latest number from RIAA, music sales in the first half of the year were up 8.4 percent, to $3.4 billion -- the best performance the music industry has seen since its peak days back in the CD era. Recode adds: That boom is fueled entirely by the growth of paid subscription services. This year's numbers include Apple Music, which didn't exist a year ago but has 17 million worldwide subscribers today, as well as Spotify, which has been growing faster than Apple and has 40 million global subs. Digital downloads via stores like iTunes, meanwhile, are falling behind. Those sales dropped 17 percent to $1 billion. And some people still buy CDs, but soon that business will be a footnote: Those sales dropped 14 percent and now make up just 20 percent of U.S. sales. All good, right? Not according to Cary Sherman, who runs the RIAA, the labels' American trade group. He has a Medium post complaining that YouTube doesn't pay enough for all the music it streams, almost all of which...

Congress to Bureaucrats: Trust No One


Congress earlier this month lowered the hammer on the U.S. Office of Personnel Management in a report on the massive data breach that resulted in the theft of 4.2 million former and current government employees' personnel files, as well as 21.5 million individuals' security clearance information, including fingerprints associated with 5.6 million of them. "The lax state of OPM's information security left the agency's information systems exposed for any experienced hacker to infiltrate and compromise," notes the report.

Scott Kelby’s Worldwide Photo Walk

I’ve been a Walk Leader for several years and have always had a lot of fun. I love the idea that thousands of my fellow photographers of all levels of ability and experience are all shooting on the same day. Check the web site to see if there is a walk in your area and, if not, apply to be a Walk Leader and create your own walk. It’s easy to do and there are prizes available for both leaders and shooters. Plus, it’s for a good cause.

Google Photos improves sharing and builds up movie...

Sharing photos is probably one of the things you do most often from your smartphone. Yet it can be a clunky process, particularly if you’re doing so across platforms or have large images and videos that can take forever to transfer.

Google Photos is trying to fix those problems, while of course making the service even more appealing to you.

The best feature comes to those who are sending pictures from one Google Photos user to another. You’ll get a ping to import the pictures right into the app, so you don’t have to mess with MMS or other third-party sharing options. While Apple’s AirDrop is convenient for iOS and Mac users, you’re stuck with other methods if you’re trying to transfer...

Apple has released a finished version of macOS X Sierra. It’s a free download at the Mac App Store. Sierra requires a 2009 iMac, 2009 MacBook, 2010 MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, Mac mini, or Mac Pro.

Siri is now on the Mac. Users can look up information, find documents, pin or drag and drop search results, and even adjust system preferences. Integration with iCloud makes everything from your Desktop and Documents folder available on your iPhone and iPad so you always have access to the files you need. 

The new Universal Clipboard feature allows you to copy content, including text, images, photos and video from one Apple device and paste it in another. Apple Pay comes to the Mac in Sierra so it’s even easier to shop securely and privately online, according to Craig Federighi, Apple’s senior vice president of Software Engineering (who, in my humble opinion, is Apple’s best presenter at these events). 

Accessible from the Dock, menu bar or keyboard, Siri lets you use...

Apple Music and Spotify help music business'...

After almost two decades of decline caused by piracy and falling prices, the music business is enjoying a fragile recovery thanks to the growth of paid streaming services like Apple Music and Spotify.

Retail spending on recorded music grew 8.1%  to $3.4 billion in the first half of 2016, according to a draft midyear report from the Recording Industry Association of America that was obtained by Bloomberg News. That means the U.S. industry is on pace to expand for the second straight year -- the first back-to-back growth since 1998-1999.

“We’re starting to see on-demand music streaming as no longer a thing that hipster college kids and young people do,’’Larry Miller, a former industry executive who now teaches music business at New York...

Yesterday Twitter introduced the ability to send extended tweets that include images and videos without counting against the character limit. This change was introduced months ago, but third-party Twitter clients didn’t have a heads up on how to support the new feature until it launched.

For the last 24 hours of so, Tweetbot and other third-party apps have included URLs to full tweets on the web for extended tweets, and now Tapbots has quickly shipped an update to the Mac that supports the longer tweet format (and iOS support likely isn’t far behind).

Mac: Apple macOS Sierra

As in previous years, Apple debuted another major version of its Mac operating system back during the June Worldwide Developer’s Conference, but with a slight twist this year — the company is retiring the traditional “OS X” name in favor of calling the new operating systems macOS, bringing the naming more logically in line with iOS, tvOS, and watchOS. While still continuing the same version numbering — it’s 10.12 under the hood — today’s public release of macOS Sierra (free) feels like the first pages of a new chapter in the evolution of the Mac operating system, bringing with it even more features to unify the experience with iPhone, iPad and even Apple Watch users.

How to make your own bootable macOS 10.12 Sierra USB...

It was 2009 when Apple last released a new operating system on physical media. Things have proceeded remarkably smoothly since version 10.7 switched to download-only installers, but there are still good reasons to want a reliable old USB stick. For instance, if you find yourself doing multiple installs, a USB drive may be faster than multiple downloads (especially if you use a USB 3.0 drive). Or, maybe you need a recovery disk for older Macs that don't support the Internet Recovery feature. Whatever the reason, you're in luck, because it's not hard to make one.

As with last year, there are two ways to get it done. There's the super easy way with the graphical user interface and the only slightly less easy way that requires some light Terminal use. Here's what...

macOS 10.12 Sierra: The Ars Technica review

Enlarge / Asking Siri the important questions. (credit: Andrew Cunningham)

When Mac OS X (as it was then called) first moved to a yearly release cycle in 2011, Apple had trouble defining its scope for each release. Lion, the first in this cadence and the first release to pull in a significant number of features from iOS, feels like a half-finished version of Mountain Lion in retrospect. Mavericks stripped out some of previous versions' skeuomorphism and superfluous texture, but the Mac didn’t fully match with...

Find My iPhone does much more than its name implies

Find My iPhone is a default app included with iOS and it can be used for much more than simply finding a lost iPhone.

The app is at the core of Apple’s phone security if you lose your iPhone or it is stolen. You can log onto Find My iPhone from another iOS device signed into your Apple ID or with a web browser at http://www.icloud.com. After launching the app or clicking on Find My iPhone on the iCloud website, you’ll be asked to log in with your Apple ID. If you have two-step authentication enabled for your Apple ID you will be asked to enter the secondary passcode.

Upon logging into Find My iPhone, a map with all the devices used with that Apple ID is displayed. Devices owned by other people on a family plan will be displayed on the map as well. If a device has been located, it’s indicated by a green circle that can be clicked for details....

It’s been a week since iOS 10 debuted on iPhone and iPad, and now it’s the Mac’s turn with macOS Sierra. OS X is officially no more; long live macOS (version 10.12 to be precise). As its name cleverly suggests, macOS Sierra brings Siri to the Mac for the first time since the voice assistant was introduced in 2011 with the iPhone 4s.

You can free up space on your Mac with a new optimized storage feature, sync your clipboard (and desktop and documents folders) between your Apple devices, watch videos from Safari with picture-in-picture, and use Apple Pay on the web to easily make purchases. You can even bypass your lock screen with your Apple Watch thanks to auto-unlock.
