Baselworld, where the watch is still the greatest...

The new York Times:

For one week in March, this glittering watch and jewelry show (which ran March 19 to 26), attracts 150,000 industry insiders, collectors and fans, emerging from the digital mists of the 21st century like Brigadoon. It is a village unto itself with its own language, values and celebrities.

And a curious village it is. In an iPhone-toting era, where millions go out in public every day flaunting naked wrists, this is one corner of the globe where the wristwatch — that centuries-old feat of micro-engineering once considered as obsolete as the rotary phone — is the only personal productivity device, status symbol and idea on earth that seems to matter.

Interesting how an article about watches can be written this day without ever mentioning the Apple Watch by name. The reporter must have had to twist himself into knots to not get a single relevant quote from any of the assembled “150,000 industry insiders”.

Zero G for iPhone 6 and 6 Plus: Stick your phone...

Zero G Prototype. Photo for Apple World Today by Steve Sande ©2015, All rights reserved.

There are a lot of iPhone cases on the market that use nano-suction material to affix the case to the iPhone, `but this is the first case I think I've seen that uses nano-suction to let you stick the case on just about any clean, flat surface. The Zero G case from Mega Tiny Corporation is currently in a Kickstarter campaign for funding, and if the pre-production device I reviewed is any indication, this could be the wooden stake to put through the heart of selfie sticks.

Why? Well, imagine you want to take a photo with some friends. Instead of pulling out the selfie stick and looking like a total fool, you just walk up to anything with a flat and clean surface and slap the iPhone onto it. It sticks, you take the photo with the self-timer, and then you pull...

Desk version 1.3 adds features, squashes bugs

Developer John Saddington is one very busy guy. About a month ago he released version 1.2 of his popular Desk text/Markdown editor for OS X (US$29.99) to the Mac App Store, and now he’s just finished version 1.3. What has he added to Desk in just a month?

First, Saddington added post formats for WordPress and Tumblr, two of the popular blogging platforms supported in Desk. At the present time, those formats include text, photo, quote and link, and he plans on adding additional formats in the future.

There’s also a Typewriter Mode now. What’s Typewriter Mode? The current line of text that’s being written is always at the bottom of the screen, with the rest of your blog post scrolling above it. It’s actually quite useful!

We have just set up XSAN (version 3/Mavericks) with 7 users.
All the users have joined the "Workgroup" by default and all work perfectly well.
We have an 8th client who we can mount as a computer in the XSAN share list, but we cannot add to "Workgroup". Both XSAN Admin (3.1) and Server (3.2.2) advise that user already exists, which is not the case.
We've attempted to remove the computer and add again with no luck.
Any pointers will result in beer.

Today is World Backup Day -- a once-a-year reminder for everyone to assess their backup solution and ensure their data is being saved properly.

The folks at Todoist have released Todoist 10 for iOS, their most ambitious update yet. The changes further solidify my decision to go all-in on Todoist, and make me feel confident that I'll keep my promise to 5by5's Jordan Cooper to not use another task manager for 12 months. Why? Because data entry is so easy now, it's almost equal to the speed of using paper and pen. Here's my look at Todoist 10 for iOS.

First look: Todoist for iOS gets smarter and better-...

Some people get a thrill from checking items off a hand-written to-do list. Others prefer to manage their lives with feature-packed digital calendars. I am both, and when I discovered Todoist earlier this year, it seemed like the best of both worlds: the ease of managing tasks in a centralized app combined with the simple pleasure of marking tasks off when you finish them. Now Todoist is even better with a facelift that delivers a new look and even more helpful new features.

The popular task management app on Tuesday rolled out a brand new version for iOS that sets the stage for a dramatic, platform-wide overhaul. Some 4 million people use Todoist to add 510,000 projects daily, and share an average of 52,000 tasks a day across millions of projects. Todoist founder and CEO Amir Salihefendic told me his team has been working to make the task management tool’s mobile apps as powerful...

Ericsson’s attempt to have the iPhone banned from US sale over a patent dispute moved one step forward yesterday as the ITC agreed to investigate. Ericsson claims that iPhones infringe a number of its patents for fundamental cellphone technologies, including both GSM and LTE. Apple denies any infringement, and says that Ericsson is in any case demanding unreasonable amounts.

In an attempt to up the ante, Ericsson called on the U.S. International Trade Commission to block imports of the iPhone into the country, and the ITC has now agreed to carry out an investigation, reports PC World.

Apple to announce Q2 2015 earnings on April 27th

Apple today updated its investor relations page to confirm that it will announce its quarterly earnings for Q2 2015 on Monday April 27th [Via MacRumors]. The quarterly earnings statement will be released at approximately 1:30 PM PDT/4:30 PM EDT followed by an earnings call to discuss the results at 2:00 PM PDT/5:00 PM EDT. Apple World Today will hold a liveblog with commentary on the call.

The earnings report will include iPhone, iPad and Mac sales in the first three calendar months of 2015. It will not include the Apple Watch, which will go on sale three days before the earnings release.

Watch Edition buyers will get the white-glove treatment, as you would guess from a shopping trip that could end in a $10,000 to $17,000 sale. If you’re interested in dropping some serious cash on a watch, Apple will set you up with an hour-long personalized appointment away from the riff-raff trying on the lower-priced models. You’ll be able to try on two Edition models at a time, plus accessories to round out your purchase. The customer...

Apple Extends Its Trade-In Program

Mark Wilson writes "Earlier in the month it was reveal that Apple was about to start offering gift cards as part of a trade-in program for people buying new a new iPhone. The updated program has now gone live so you can take your old Apple device, or non-Apple smartphone to an Apple store, or mail it in to receive credit. The credit can be used in store or online against the purchase of a new Apple device, and this program expansion is the latest move from Apple to try to tempt users away from other platforms. You can check online to see how much you can expect to receive for your existing phone and decide whether it's worth your while. Hint: it might not be.

Gold Apple Watch Edition comes with a buying...

You probably already know if you're going to shell out $10,000 or more for the Apple Watch Edition—aside from being made of gold, it isn't going to do anything that the $349 Apple Watch Sport or the $549 Apple Watch can't do. However, buying and getting support for the five-figure watches will apparently be substantially different, according to a report from 9to5Mac.

It begins with the buying experience itself. The cheaper Apple Watches will reportedly be sold using five- to ten-minute demo sessions at tables set up throughout Apple Stores, but the Apple Watch Edition will be demoed in private one-on-one sessions that can last up to an hour. Accessories and alternate bands will apparently be offered after customers have been allowed to try on the watches.

Once you've bought your five-figure smart watch, you can elect to...

Tim Cook: ‘religious freedom’ laws are dangerous

Photo via flickr user Mike Deerkosk.

In an op-ed piece written for The Washington Post online, Apple CEO Tim Cook formally announced his opposition to "pro-discrimination religious freedom laws," such as Senate Bill 101, which you can read in its entirety here. The so-called "religious freedom" law passed in Indiana last week, which opponents say could give business owners the right to refuse service to gay customers.

Under Tim Cook, Apple has celebrated diversity among its employees. In this week's editorial, the CEO recounted his company's pro-diversity, anti-discrimination stance:

"Our message, to people around...

The Apple Store will give you credit for old Android...

If you’re ready to defect to the iPhone from Android or BlackBerry, the Apple Store will welcome you with open arms—and some store credit.

Apple retail stores are expanding their trade-in programs beyond the iPhone and iPad to include “select” smartphones from other manufacturers. Word of the new program first appeared on individual store websites, as spotted by 9to5Mac.

Apple has been offering credit for old iPhones and iPads at its retail stores since 2013. The company also accepts old Apple products and Windows PCs through its Reuse and Recycle website. This is the first time Apple will be offering store credit for Android and BlackBerry phones.

AWT Health Club: Withings Smart Body Analyzer

How did the last week go for those of you who decided to take the challenge and start (or keep) tracking your health? For me, the week was kind of a wash; my Achilles tendon was hurting, which kept me from walking a lot. However, I still managed to get some walking in… Sadly, I was bad over the weekend and actually ended up 0.3 lb from last week…

Withings WS-50 Smart Body Analyzer: Image via Withings.com

Health device of the week: Withings WS-50 Smart Body Analyzer

This week’s focus is on a device that’s been checking my weight almost every morning since 2009. That’s a Withings Connected Scale, which also measures body fat and displays your Body Mass Index (BMI). The scale has come a long way since I first bought one back in 2009; it now also acts as an air quality sensor and takes your pulse when you weigh in. Any measurements made by the scale are transmitted via Wi-Fi to the Withings cloud, where you can either view it on a website or using...

External Link: Tim Cook Speaks Out Against “...

Apple has come a long way from Steve Jobs’s open letters about DRM, Flash, and the firm’s environmental efforts. In a Washington Post op-ed, Apple CEO Tim Cook criticizes state laws that he says “would allow people to discriminate against their neighbors,” such as Indiana’s controversial Religious Freedom Restoration Act, which some say opens the door to discrimination against LGBT individuals. Invoking his childhood in the South during the civil rights movement, Cook moves from noting that “America’s business community recognized a long time ago that discrimination, in all its forms, is bad for business,” to the more humanistic “This isn’t a political issue. It isn’t a religious issue. This is about how we treat each other as human beings.”

The most unforgettable hockey game requires the most...

Huffington Post:

A four-month contest to reward Canada’s most dedicated hockey players could only end in a place like this.

The lucky winners of Molson Canadian’s #AnythingForHockey campaign were flown by helicopter this month to a professionally built rink on a glacial B.C. lake to play an epic game of shinny.

These ads have been all over Canadian TV for months and, while you couldn’t pay me to drink Molson Canadian, their ad campaigns have always been wonderful examples of what it can mean to be Canadian and what hockey means to us. Now, excuse me. After watching that video, I’ve got some dust in my eyes I need to get a tissue to wipe out.

Farewell, ifoAppleStore: You will be missed

The masthead of ifoAppleStore.com

On Friday, Gary Allen -- the brains behind the ifoAppleStore.com website -- wrote a farewell piece. After 14 years of providing the most detailed news about Apple Stores to readers and other bloggers, Allen has decided to move on.

Allen notes that back in 2001 when he started the site, "I was the only person studying the stores. In fact, most onlookers were skeptical of the stores' future success." But 14 years later, the retail outlets are a very big part of the Apple story around the world, and "Now, everyone is interested in the Apple stores -- and most of them also seem to be writing about the stores. Who am I to keep up with them?"

The "ifo" in ifoAppleStore means "in front of", and Allen was famous for joining the crowds in front of new Apple Stores to help...

Periscope won’t change the world – but it appeals to...

The Next Web:

The desire of so many to just bang the drum for these companies without asking too many questions. Technology writers shouldn’t be carnival barkers for startups and their VC backers. They shouldn’t be so easily seduced by a nicely designed interface and the opportunity to indulge their narcissism.

Periscope and Meerkat have flooded our social streams with hours of awful new content, just like Snapchat and Vine before them. Very few people stop to think whether their thoughts are worth sharing. Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should.

I have been doing live streaming video for over ten years. The only thing new about Periscope, Meerkat and others is the app – the tech has been around for the average person for years – and it has never really caught on for the masses. I don’t believe this latest round of hype for these apps will change that.

Some leaked documents have revealed what may be in store for Apple Watch buyers come April.

Shoppers wanting to buy an Apple Watch from an Apple Store will not be able to pick one up without a prior reservation, at least at launch, according to a new report.

Prospective buyers will need to make a “Product Reservation” online to secure a specific model, eschewing Apple’ usual Personal Pickup option, according to leaked training documents obtained by MacRumors. The documents also reportedly state that if a person simply walks into an Apple Store, retail workers should offer the option to try on a Watch, but then help them place an order through Apple’s...

A lot of attention has gone into the upcoming Apple Watch’s biometric and health-centric sensors, but the device could also be great for weather forecasting.

Last fall, after the announcement of the iPhone 6 and its barometer, meteorologist Cliff Mass wrote a giddy blog post about the promise of smartphone barometers. He said experimental results from his research team show that dense networks of mobile barometers alone can create highly accurate three-dimensional weather maps. That “almost sounds like magic” to Mass.

The implications of highly localized weather forecasts are profound. The Weather Company, which owns the Weather Channel, has used local...

Using iMovie and Vimeo to spark creativity in kids

Like many parents, I want my children to be technology savvy, so I encourage them to use my Apple gear in ways that are educational and fun. They already know how to use my iPad for games, but I want them to explore the creative side of the device and understand how powerful it is as a content creation tool. One of the best tools for this type of exploration is iMovie, which we use to create videos that we host on Vimeo and post on a family blog.

Documenting the world

My kids love to make documentaries about everything that happens around us. Some are silly -- like the slow-mo of my son burping -- while others are more interesting, like the short of the dogs chasing squirrels. I let them have free range with my iPhone when the moment strikes. My children have no shortage of moments they want to capture, just look at the 200 videos and 800 photographs in my Camera Roll for evidence.

An anonymous reader writes "Good news for those of you thinking of buying an Apple watch but were concerned the experience wouldn't feel exclusive enough. According to MacRumors there will be no walk-in sales the first few weeks of launch. Instead, you'll have to call the store and make reservations. From the article: "Apple will begin offering online pre-sales of the Apple Watch starting on April 10th, with the first deliveries occurring on April 24th, the official Apple Watch launch date. During those two weeks, customers will be able to have hands-on 'try-on' appointments at Apple retail stores in order to help make up their mind. However, according to training documents that MacRumors has received, Apple is not allowing any walk-in retail purchases for the Apple Watch at launch. Instead customers must make an online 'Product Reservation' to hold a specific Apple Watch model at a retail store. This new 'Product Reservation' system is used instead of Apple's 'Personal Pickup'...

By examining the most common professions among H-1B applicants for Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Google and Microsoft, five consistent career paths emerged across each company. Software engineers, systems software engineers, financial analysts, computer systems analysts and marketing managers make up a large part of H-1B visa...

One of the really attractive options for retirement is moving to another country and, for a fraction of the cost of living in the U.S., living like royalty. Well, I've been hearing a lot of stories about this over the last year, and I think there is reason for concern. This isn't to say that a lot of folks haven't done it successfully, but I've met a considerable number who appear to be in denial or simply have no choice now but to ride out their decision, because they can't afford to move back to the U.S.

Free-to-play games often look appealing, but it's difficult to know at a glance whether the business model is insidious and fun ruining, or reasonable and worth pumping a few bucks into. With Freemium Field Test, we'll take a recent free-to-play iOS game, put it through its paces, and let you know if it's really worth your time (and money).

Rovio, once the king of iOS gaming and the creative force behind millions of licensed Angry Birds shirts and doodads, is on a serious downswing right now. The studio reported a 73-percent drop in profits last year, due to a number of reasons: Its flagship brand is losing steam, the merchandise isn't selling, and its free-to-play efforts simply aren't competing with current App Store heavyweights.

Tim Cook calls Arkansas & Indiana laws “...

Tim Cook has written an op-ed in the Washington Post describing legislation permitting businesses to bypass anti-discrimination laws on religious grounds as “very dangerous,” and in fundamental opposition to the founding principles of the United States. In it, he referenced the ugly days of racial segregation, which finally ended only in the 1960s.

Men and women have fought and died fighting to protect our country’s founding principles of freedom and equality. We owe it to them, to each other and to our future to continue to fight with our words and our actions to make sure we protect those ideals. The days of segregation and discrimination marked by “Whites Only” signs on shop doors, water fountains and restrooms must remain deep in our past. We must never return to any...

A small change to the latest beta version of iOS may indicate a big change coming to the official Twitter application. In the pre-release version of the software that was provided to testers and developers last week, it seems the option to share content to Twitter has been removed entirely.

Not only is the Twitter icon now missing from the share sheet in first-party apps like Photos and Safari, but from all third-party apps that use the native sharing option introduced in iOS 8. The change could just be a glitch, but it more likely suggests that Apple may be removing its in-house Twitter sheet in favor of something new…

Washington Post:

America’s business community recognized a long time ago that discrimination, in all its forms, is bad for business. At Apple, we are in business to empower and enrich our customers’ lives. We strive to do business in a way that is just and fair. That’s why, on behalf of Apple, I’m standing up to oppose this new wave of legislation — wherever it emerges.

Another example of Tim Cook making Apple a company in his own image. And that’s a good thing.
