MOS Go first look: Could be the best battery for...

Editor’s note: This article is part of our roundup of USB-C battery packs.

The MOS Go is the battery I wish I could recommend as the top USB-C pick for fast charging and recharging. Unfortunately, during testing, a company spokesperson said that the firm needed to do some tuning of the firmware and certain hardware features and the device has yet to be finalized.

Macworld typically doesn’t review prototype hardware, only units coming off a production line. But the MOS Go was in early production and the company had intended to ramp up into a full launch. The company says the launch is delayed until it finishes working through the bugs. A new ship date has yet to be determined.

All Work and No Headphone Jack Makes Nilay a Dull Boy

A (partial!) selection of sentences containing the word “headphone” from Nilay Patel’s review of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus for The Verge:

  • And, yes, Apple has removed the headphone jack.

  • Removing the headphone jack is an act of pure confidence from
    Apple, which is the only company in tech that can set off a sea
    changes in the industry by aggressively dropping various
    technologies from its products.

  • And now it’s decided that — yikes — the headphone jack
    is over.

  • And third — here it is again — there’s no headphone jack.

  • Apart from the revised camera, the new home button, the screen,
    and — heyo! — the headphone jack, the other notable external
    hardware change to the iPhone 7 is the addition of stereo
    speakers.

  • Let’s talk about that headphone jack, shall...

Unknown attackers have been testing the defenses of companies that run critical parts of the Internet, possibly to figure out how to take them down, cybersecurity expert Bruce Schneier warned Tuesday.

"Nation state actors are going to probe to find weaknesses in all of our technologies," said Travis Smith, senior security research engineer at Tripwire. They "want to know what can be done not only in the event of a cyberwar but a kinetic war as well."

Swiss watchmaker Swatch has successfully opposed Apple's registration of the trademark "iWatch" in the UK. The UK's Intellectual Property Office (IPO) upheld Swatch's oppositionSwatch Group AG took action against Apple for registering the "iWatch" as a trademark in 2014, according to the BBC News

The world's biggest watch maker says the moniker — which is was once rumored to be the name of Apple's rumored smart watch — is too darn close to its own iSwatch product. Of course, Apple’s smartwatch turned out to be dubbed the “Apple Watch” instead of the “iWatch.”

Now, however, if Apple wants to use the name "iWatch" in the UK at some point in future, it can now do so only with certain products. According to the BBC News, these include computer software and computer accessories - but not computer hardware, monitors, audio and video devices or cameras.

Mixpanel: iOS 10 showing high adoption rate

As of 2 PM PT today -- slightly over one day after iOS 10 first became available -- iOS 10 is showing a 16.17% adoption rate. That means that of all iOS devices on the planet, over 16% have already been updated to the latest version of iOS. The numbers are generated by Mixpanel, which uses anonymized customer data to track actions across web and mobile. 

Mixpanel's VP of Engineering Joe Xavier predicts that iOS 10 will reach 50% adoption in less than 11 days, most likely on Sunday, September 25. By comparison, iOS 9 took 12 days to reach 50% and iOS 8 31 days. 

Another fascinating comparison is when iOS 10 is pitted against the latest version of Android, version 6.0 "Marshmallow". As of today, that mobile operating system has an 18.7% adoption rate -- and Marshmallow was first widely released almost a year ago on October 5, 2015. By later today, a greater...

Self-driving Ubers are now arriving in Pittsburgh

Uber has begun offering customers the chance to ride in one of its autonomous car prototypes. The new service has launched in Pittsburgh, where Uber carries out its high-tech research, and is a sign of confidence by the company in its self-driving car technology.

The service is initially being offered to Uber’s “most loyal” customers in the city as part of the Uber X service, the company said in a blog post that was short on technical details.

The Ford Focus cars being used in the trial will have a human in the driver’s seat—someone who should be ready to take over from the computer should it encounter a situation it cannot safely deal with. That’s not only a prudent technical move but also the law. No U.S. states have legalized self-driving cars without human drivers or steering wheels.

But, then again, there are no black EarPods so maybe we’ll never see them.

Pad & Quill Small Briefcase. Image ©2016, Steven Sande

When you get really compact computing devices like the 12-inch MacBook or iPad Pros, most laptop bags are way too big. It's like using a moving van to transport a pea! Well, fortunately Pad & Quill saw the trend towards more svelte computers and tablets and developed the new Small Briefcase (US$219.00). Today we'll take a look at this compact and rugged laptop case.

Design

For looks and durability, the Small Briefcase is handmade from leather and waxed canvas. It comes in four different finishes: charcoal gray canvas with whiskey leather, olive green canvas with galloper black leather, charcoal gray canvas with chocolate leather and charcoal gray canvas with galloper black leather. All four look outstanding -- we received a gray/black Small Briefcase and it's gorgeous.

Apple CEO Tim Cook discusses AR/VR on ‘ABC News’

Apple CEO Tim Cook discussed augmented reality/virtual reality technologies this morning during an ABC News interview. He said that, in his opinion, augmented reality (AR) is the larger of the two, “probably by far, because this gives the capability for both of us to sit and be very present talking to each other, but also have other things visually for both of us to see.”

"Virtual reality (VR) sort of encloses and immerses the person into an experience that can be really cool, but probably has a lower commercial interest over time, or less people would be interested in that,” Cook said. He added that Apple has a lot of consideration for virtual reality as it relates to gaming and education.

I’ve been using Apple’s extended wired keyboard for something like a decade – since it came out in 2007 – mostly because it feels the same as my MacBook Pro’s keys and it’s more reliable than Bluetooth – it just works for me.

Logitech makes some pretty good keyboards in their own right. I love their solar offerings for instance. But because the ol’ Apple extended is there and it feels like my MacBook’s keyboard, I usually end up going back to what I’m used to after trialling other keyboards.

That might not happen this time around. I’ve been playing with Logitech’s new K780 Multi Device Bluetooth Keyboard which retails for $80 at Logitech and soon at Best Buy, Amazon and other fine retailers…...

Most people may associate Twitter with mobile phones, but today it’s coming to your TV with the release of new video-centric apps for the Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, and Xbox One.

On the surface, the idea seems pretty stupid. Some smart TVs have integrated Twitter apps in the past and nobody used them, because using Twitter on your TV sucks. But this time it makes more sense, because Twitter’s doubling down on video and live events. On Thursday the social network will livestream its first NFL Thursday Night Football game, with nine more NFL livestreams scheduled throughout the season. And the only thing worse than surfing Twitter timelines on your TV is watching football on your phone.

iOS 10 includes a lot of new stuff, from a revamped Messages app to a redesigned Apple Music experience. While most of it is superior to iOS 9, there are some choices that are more questionable. iOS 10 updates the lock screen with a new widgets view, but it also removes the iconic Slide to Unlock feature.

Unlocking an iPhone now requires a physical press on the Home Button by default. However, there is a nifty setting to make the iPhone act more like iOS 9 if you have Touch ID, called “Rest Finger to Open”. This trick works with any iPhone or iPad that has a Touch ID Home button …

Retailers that have signed up for the service are expected to see an uptick in the number of customers that finish a web purchase, instead of giving up because typing in credit information was considered too complicated, awkward or time-consuming, according to Computerworld.

The new Dot can be pre-ordered now—and by anyone, not just Prime members who already own the Fire TV or original Echo—but will not start shipping in the U.S. until October 20.

Amazon says the new Dot, which essentially brings the Amazon Echo's voice controls to existing speakers and sound systems though it features a small speaker of its own, has a new “sleek and compact design.” The puck-shaped device was already pretty diminutive. The new Dot also comes in a new white option if black doesn’t work in your home.

The iPhone 7 and cellular speeds

Yesterday, I posted an article about the cellular radios inside the new iPhone 7 and 7 Plus and the fact that there are two distinct models (Intel and Qualcomm) with two different sets of capabilities.

This article from iMore digs into this from a slightly different angle:

The iPhone 7 now supports maximum speeds of up to 450Mbps, which is a 50% jump over the iPhone 6s. Specifically, the new iPhone is a Category 10 device, which means that in addition to being able to reach those astronomical speeds of 450Mbps in the downlink (downloading data from the internet), it is able to reach speeds of 100Mbps in the uplink.

To reach these speeds, the iPhone uses a technology under the LTE standard called carrier...

Twitter introduces Apple TV app for live streaming...

Twitter has launched a new, free Twitter app that will allow owners of an Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV or Xbox One to “consume the best of Twitter.” 

The free apps will feature all live streaming video available on Twitter (including live streams of 10 NFL Thursday Night Football games, as well as content from MLB Advanced Media, NBA, Pac 12 Networks, Campus Insiders, Cheddar and Bloomberg News), and other Twitter content such as top Tweets and top global Vines and Periscopes. 

Anyone with these devices, regardless of whether they have a Twitter account or a pay TV subscription, can enjoy this experience, according to Anthony Noto, chief financial officer at Twitter. What’s more, exclusively on Apple TV, viewers can enjoy live premium video and check out Tweeted video clips through a seamless side-by-side video experience.

Twitter for Apple TV is available globally via the App Store for the fourth generation Apple TV. You don’t need a Twitter account or...

iOS 10: How to use stickers, iMessages apps, Digital...

The Messages app is the most frequently used app on iOS, so it makes sense that Apple would lend it plenty of attention in iOS 10. It’s safe to say that the stock Messages app received, by far, the most significant overhaul of all default apps in iOS 10, as it is now a feature-laden package that leverages photos, videos, and Snapchat-inspired markup elements.

Messages in iOS 10 even brings about a dedicated iMessage App Store for adding additional functionality such as stickers, animated GIFs and third-party app extensions that run right within the Messages app interface. Updated emoji features, inline music and video playback, and brand new effects add a new dimension to Apple’s most popular iOS app.

Samsung analyst on the Galaxy Note 7: “Most of them...

CNN Money:

“If a customer is going out to buy a phone, they’re going to buy an iPhone 7, not a Note 7,” said Mark Newman, a Bernstein analyst who covers Samsung. He pointed out that the Note 7 was launched before the iPhone 7 and received better reviews.

Not sure I agree on the better reviews things, but keep reading:

Samsung’s Note 7 storm will “most likely blow over in a couple of months,” he said. “Longer term, Samsung is a strong brand with great products. Most of them don’t explode.”

And there it is. The Galaxy Note 7 killer feature. Not newsworthy, I know, but I just loved the quote.

Wired: Here’s what you need to know about ceramic,...

God I hate these headlines. But. This is a solid article and ceramic is an interesting new direction for Apple. Lots to learn here:

“Ceramics are much more durable than metals,” says Julia Greer, a materials scientist at Caltech. To understand what she means, consider your MacBook. That anodized aluminum casing provides a handsome sheen, but drop it and you run a good chance of denting a corner. Stick it in your bag unprotected, and your keys almost certainly will scratch it.

And:

The back of each Watch uses zirconia ceramic where the magnetic charger attaches. Ceramics are non-conductive, and don’t interfere with wireless charging.

And:

Ceramics, on the other hand, are virtually scratch-proof. “They deform in an elastic way,” Greer says. “You’ll never see the deformation, until they crack.” Unlike an aluminum or a stainless steel case, a ceramic one can take a licking and keep on ticking. The rub with ceramics is that, while they’re tough to...

Cook even argued that wires make the old EarPods more likely to fall out during activity, providing chances to snag the cord on something, while also applying extra weight to the earbud that drags it down.

Apple Watch Series 2 review roundup: ‘It’s all about...

After reviews of the iPhone 7 and AirPods, it’s now the turn of the Apple Watch Series 2. Similar to the iPhone 7, the latest-generation Watch doesn’t look particularly different on the outside, so the question is whether the under-the-hood changes make an upgrade worthwhile?

Answering this question is particularly tricky given that watchOS 3 transforms the performance of the existing first-gen Watch, so some of the things being commented on by reviewers are actually more of a function of the new operating system than the new hardware …

Aurora HDR 2017 first look: Macphun's flashy...

Aurora HDR 2017, an update to Macphun’s nearly year-old HDR app, is dedicated to making your photos sizzle with light and color. Part of that is the influence of photographer Trey Ratcliff, who partnered with the software company to develop the app, including his signature line of presets within the software.

Another part is the realization that photos—particularly landscapes and cityscapes, nature, and other scenic compositions—often fail to measure up to the scene most people remember seeing in real time. HDR can work toward realigning memory with reality, especially if the photographer has the foresight to bracket multiple shots with different exposures with the intention of combining them later. Though Aurora can also work with...

Apple, other tech companies expected to oppose India...

India’s government recently invited Apple, Google, Microsoft and Samsung to discuss embedding government-funded biometric technology into products sold within the country as part of an effort to register and authenticate its citizens, but Apple declined to attend, reports Bloomberg.

The initiative is part of a national biometric identity program called Aadhaar (Hindi for foundation). Millions of Indians use fingerprint and iris-scan authentication to access a range of public and private services that now includes banking. Failure to join the effort could limit the tech industry’s access to a vast and growing market, but companies like Apple and Google are expected to resist opening up their phones and operating systems to the Indian registration, encryption and security technology.

It’s not as high profile a release as today’s launch of iOS 10, but it’s definitely still notable.

On Tuesday, Apple released watchOS 3. The update operating system include battery life enhancements, and speed improvements to the Apple Watch. A user’s favorite apps will be kept in memory, background updates will pre-cache data, and apps will launch instantly on the new OS.

Also included are new customizable watch faces, including a new fitness-focused watch face that presents activity-focused rings at all times along with a new Minnie Mouse watch face.

The new operating system also includes a fix that makes it easier to transition between watch faces with a quick swipe.

At the FBI's request, Israeli authorities last week arrested two teens for operating vDOS, a DDoS-for-hire service that raked in more than half a million dollars in two years. DDoS attacks flood websites with garbage data in order to disrupt their operation and deny users access. The pair were questioned and released after posting bond of about $10,000 each. In addition, the duo's passports were seized, they were placed under house arrest for 10 days, and they were barred from using the Internet or any telecommunications equipment for 30 days.

Given the huge popularity of the Jet Black finish, despite concerns about scratches, it would have seemed an obvious move to offer the color as an option. Especially for a product far less likely to be subject to scratches, living in your ears when in use and the case when not …

MD Acne CEO says Apple’s CareKit is a ‘game changer’

Earlier this year, Apple quietly announced a new open sourced platform – called “CareKit” - that helps app developers build software focused around healthcare and patient data. The move provides Apple with the first point of contact to connect patients, doctors and caregivers using technology.

Apple worked behind closed doors with three startups - Iodine, One Drop and Glow – but those health tech startups only exchanged patient data with doctors. MD Acne became the first mobile app to allow physicians to see actual images sent directly from a patient’s phone, according to MD Acne CEO Oded Harth. Use this free app to get free immediate dermatologist based analysis and advice for your Acne.

Apple World Today recently interviewed Harth about how MD Acne used Apple’s technology in its work.

Also, Speedy Net must be installed and running on all the devices you wish to test. An iOS version is available at the Apple App Store. If you devices other than OS X or iOS gadgets, you're out of luck. SpeedyNet doesn't support them.

Apple Watch Series 2 and WatchOS 3

I didn’t get Apple Watch at first. I didn’t feel right about my initial review, and effectively took another crack at it three weeks later. My unsettled feeling over the initial review was correct; it doesn’t hold up. My second review, though, is better. After noting several similarities between the Apple Watch and Roger Moore’s Seiko digital watches during the prime years of his run as James Bond, I wrote:

This is what Apple Watch is: an ambitious modern take on the digital watch.

I don’t feel bad about not quite getting Apple Watch at first, though. Apple didn’t get it either.
