Yahoo Makes It Harder for Email Users to Jump Ship

Yahoo in recent days disabled autoforwarding for Yahoo Mail -- and in at least one corporate client's case, it disabled the webmail deletion feature. The autoforwarding feature "is under development," reads a statement on the Yahoo site. "While we work to improve it, we've temporarily disabled the ability to turn on Mail Forwarding for new forwarding addresses." There has been speculation that Yahoo turned off the autoforwarding feature to stem the tide of users quitting Yahoo Mail.

Apple Mac shipments take a beating in the third...

Sales of Windows PCs fared better than Apple Macs during the third quarter this year.

Third-quarter PC shipments declined by 3.9 percent compared to the same quarter last year, but Mac shipments dropped by 13 percent. PC shipments totaled 68 million units, according to IDC.

The declines weren't as bad as expected, and were roughly 3.2 percent ahead of IDC's initial projections, the research firm said.

In the top five PC companies, fourth-placed Apple registered the largest decline, with the 13 percent drop in Mac shipments. Apple's Mac sales totaled 5 million units during the quarter, declining from 5.76 million units in the same quarter a year ago.

Review: Mophie Hold Force Magnetic Case System for...

Mophie's new Hold Force Magnetic Case System ($40 and up) for iPhone 7 isn't a new concept — the idea of accessories for cases has been done by others — but this is a relatively high profile release and definitely the first case/accessory system we've seen for the new iPhone 7. The system begins with Base Case, a $40 thin case with built-in magnetic plates. Those plates allow you to attach add-on accessories, including the Hold Force Wallet ($20), Hold Force Folio ($20), and Hold Force Powerstation Plus Mini ($60) — the last option is a battery that can stay magnetically attached to the back of the case while charging the iPhone 7 with a built-in Lightning/micro-USB connector. Base Case comes in 10 different color options, and both the wallet and folio come in three different color combos, as well. Mophie's Hold Force system is also available for iPhone 7 Plus.{/exp:char_limit}

Supreme Court wrestles with size of damages for...

The justices of the U.S. Supreme Court, hearing arguments in a long-running Apple and Samsung patent dispute on Tuesday, seemed to question a 19th-century law that allows huge infringement damages in design patent cases.

Questioning lawyers for the two companies, the justices repeatedly referred to a law that instructs courts to award patent damages based on the total profit from the infringing device, instead of from just the infringing pieces of the device.

The total-profit rule for design patents may work for simple products, but not for complex ones like smartphones, Justice Stephen Breyer said. "For wallpaper, you get the whole thing," he said, according to "A Rolls-Royce with the thing on the hood? No, no, no you don’t...

My Passport continues to provide fast USB 3.0 support, and comes pre-formatted for macOS Sierra and ready for Time Machine right out of the box.

After the successful debut of the iOS version of its app, Fancy Bits has released a major update to its Channels app for Apple TV. This update, version 2.0, brings Channels for Apple TV more in line with the iOS version. It means that you now get both channel grid and channel guide support within the app, bringing it more in line with traditional set top boxes provided by cable companies.

Channels is an app that allows you to use an HDHomeRun device to stream local over-the-air (OTA) programing, or cable programming (using an HDHomeRun Prime) to your Apple TV or iOS device. This makes Channels the perfect app for cord-cutters, or for people who don’t want to deal with the cable company’s horrific set top box interface.

One of the first Internet of Things / Home Automation devices I reviewed years ago was a first-generation indoor/outdoor weather monitor from Netatmo. The company has been spectacularly successful with its reasonably-priced, durable and easy-to-use devices, and now has a complete line of products. Today, Netatmo announced the new Healthy Home Coach ($99), billed as a smart indoor climate monitor that's compatible with Apple's HomeKit framework.

The Healthy Home Coach keeps watch over humidity, air temperature, noise and air quality, then provides an easy-to-understand rating for each location. For example, if a humidifier has been running too long in a child's room, the Healthy Home Coach might respond that conditions are "Fair" in the room and suggest turning off the humidifier to lower the humidity. 

The Healthy Home Coaches use HomeKit's simple setup process to connect to Wi-Fi, and...

The Temkin Group has released a new research report, Net Promoter Score Benchmark Study, 2016”, based on a study of 10,000 U.S. consumers. The Net Promoter Score (NPS) measures the likelihood of consumers to recommend a company to their friends and family, using a scoring range from -100 to +100.

USAA's insurance business earned the highest NPS (68), followed by Cadillac dealers (63), USAA's banking business (62), Apple's computer business (60), and USAA's credit card business (60). Other firms to earn an NPS of more than 55 are, Trader Joe's, H-E-B, Audi, and credit unions.

At the other end of the spectrum, four companies have negative NPS: Comcast TV service, Time Warner Cable TV service, Cox Communications, and McDonalds. Other low scoring companies with NPS of 5 and below are RadioShack, Charter Communications, Comcast Internet service, Time Warner Cable Internet service, Motel 6, and Con...

Mr. McConnell’s effort, “Things People Do,” not only made the final cut, but the version included is his demo. Phish made multiple versions of the song before agreeing that nothing topped the original low-fi version, recorded on Mr. McConnell’s iPhone, sitting atop a Wurlitzer piano in his living room.

Cool. To paraphrase an aphorism, sometimes the best recording device is the one you have with you.

The last design patent case (from 1885) to make it...

BBC News:

To find context ahead of Tuesday’s showdown between Apple and Samsung in the US Supreme Court, you need to go back over a century to a row over some rather attractive carpets.

It’s 1885, and John and James Dobson stand accused of nicking designs from other carpet makers and selling them off as their own.

A couple of companies, Hartford Carpet and Bigelow Carpet, were so incensed they took the Dobsons all the way to the highest court in the land.

The firms were quite right to be upset, the Supreme Court agreed, but then it got more complicated. The court hit a stumbling block over the amount of money the firms deserved in damages.

[VIDEO]: Cominmag, via Google Translate:

In late April 2016, the company FAIRTIQ SA has radically simplified the purchase of tickets by launching the application that bears his name in conjunction with public transport Fribourg (TPF) and Lucerne and the Rhaetian Railway. Until then, to get a ticket, users were faced with sometimes complicated tariff systems.

The FAIRTIQ innovation has transformed this event into a breeze: the passenger signals the start of his journey with a click before boarding the vehicle and terminates in the same way once arrived. Thanks to the GPS, the system calculates the distance traveled and the corresponding ticket most advantageous. If the user makes several trips in a day and a day pass would have proved a more economical option for him FAIRTIQ not charge him the amount of the daily chart in question. Also, if you forget the part of the user, the application automatically calls to end the trip.

Review: Raumfeld’s Stereo Cubes produce amazing...

Back in August I reviewed the Raumfeld One M Wireless Speaker and I was thoroughly impressed by the sound emanating from such a compact speaker. The One M featured a 5-driver 2-way stereo speaker solution that came bundled with its own built-in down-firing subwoofer. The result was nothing less than impressive.

Yet, single speaker solutions have inherent limitations when it comes to things like stereo separation. That’s where the step-up Raumfeld Stereo Cubes make their presence felt. The Stereo Cubes, which generally sell for around $699, are much pricier than the Raumfeld One M, but delivers noticeably richer sound with great stereo separation.

The Samsung Note 7 is officially dead


Samsung Electronics Co. is ending production of its problematic Galaxy Note 7 smartphones, taking the drastic step of killing off a smartphone that became a major headache for South Korea’s largest company.

Samsung had already recalled the Note 7 once last month after early models exploded and the latest move comes after customers reported that replacement phones were also catching fire. Samsung will be without its highest-end smartphone that was supposed to compete against Apple Inc.’s iPhones and other premium devices during the holiday shopping season.

This is a remarkable turn of events. Can you think of another major product that went through testing and release and was then completely killed off before it finished its first wave of shipping?

∞ Two different iOS 10 adoption rates

Mixpanel’s version of iOS 10 adoption is, obviously, not measured by App Store internals. According to the latest Mixpanel trend numbers, the iOS 10 adoption rate is 67.21%.

Both sets of numbers are reasonably up to date and, also obviously, pulled from different sources. Apple pulls data from App Store visits on a specific day (in this case, October 7th), and Mixpanel pulls their data from web site visits, sort of like Google Analytics, though with a deeper embedding in applications.

Interesting to see such different measures of adoption. Regardless, iOS 10...

I did cringe slightly as I wrote that headline, as it would be more correctly stated as ‘How to get shallow depth of field’ – bokeh being the particular appearance of the out-of-focus areas. But, thanks to Apple, the world is using one term to refer to the other, so I gave in where the headline was concerned.

Only the iPhone 7 Plus, with its dual-camera system, has the ability to generate artificial shallow depth of field, an effect activated in yesterday’s beta. But all iPhones are capable of generating optical shallow depth of field in very limited circumstances, and it’s actually really easy to do so …

Supreme Court will hear dispute over Samsung vs....

The U.S. Supreme Court is to hear arguments Tuesday in a closely-watched dispute between Samsung Electronics and Apple on the procedure for calculation of damages for the infringement of design patents.

In general terms, a design patent protects the way an article looks, while utility patents address the way an article is used and works, according to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. Some older Samsung smartphones were found by a jury in 2012 to have infringed three design patents related to the look of the iPhone, including its face and rounded bezel design, and the icon layout on the home screen.

Your iMac might someday provide wireless power to...

Your iMac might someday provide wireless power to your iPhone, iPad, and other devices. Apple has filed for a patent (number 9,466,989) for “wireless power utilization in a local computing environment.”

The wireless powered local computing environment — that would be the iMac — includes at least a near field magnetic resonance (NFMR) power supply arranged to wirelessly provide power to any of a number of “suitably configured” devices.  The devices receiving power wirelessly from the NFMR power supply must be located in a region known as the near field that extends no further than a distance of about 3.28 feet. 

Obviously, you couldn’t roam the house with this limited distance. However, iPhones and iPads near your Mac could be charged wirelessly. And Magic Trackpads, Magic Keyboards, and Magic Mice would always be charged in this scenario.

Exactly what changes would need to be made to an iMac to make this happen is unclear. It might have to put...

The company is accepting donations in $5, $10, $25, $50, $100, and $200 increments, giving the whole of the money to its usual charity partner for disasters, the American Red Cross. Apple warns that people can’t use existing iTunes credit to make a donation, and that people looking to write the money off on taxes are responsible for documentation.

You can donate via, the iTunes Store and the App Store.

Samsung halts production of Galaxy Note 7...

Well, Apple’s faulty batteries never caused a company to tell its users to discontinue use of their product outright.

Electronics maker Samsung issued an alert to customers on Monday asking them to turn off their Galaxy Note 7 smartphone units. The units have been spontaneously catching fire. As such, the company halted production of the devices over the weekend.

In a corporate statement, Samsung said it will also “ask all carrier and retail partners globally to stop sales and exchanges of the Galaxy Note 7” while it investigates the cause of the fires.
It also said, “Consumers with either an original Galaxy Note 7 or replacement Galaxy Note 7 device should power down and stop using the device.”

Samsung released the 5.7-inch...

All Systems Go for Andromeda

Although Google didn't drop any new details on the progress of Andromeda at its big Pixel event, that doesn't suggest any tempering of enthusiasm for the new operating system. Andromeda reportedly is a mashup of Android and Chrome, with features from Chrome having been ported into Android rather than the other way around. It's expected to show up next year in a new laptop, dubbed "Pixel 3." The project is known internally as "Bison." Google also plans to launch a Huawei-manufactured Nexus tablet that will run Andromeda.

Why today’s Apple v Samsung Supreme Court case is so...

The BBC has an interesting take on the Apple versus Samsung patent case that is finally heading to the Supreme Court today, arguing that a definitive ruling is needed in order to bring a 19th Century law into the 21st Century.  It also explains why the legal battle probably won’t end with the Supreme Court’s ruling.

A one-paragraph recap for anyone who hasn’t been following the case closely. Samsung infringed several of Apple’s design patents – that is, patents concerned with how things look (in either hardware or software) rather than what they do. Samsung is no longer denying that. The lower courts ruled that Samsung must pay all of the profits made by infringing these patents. That’s the bit Samsung is fighting, arguing that it should pay a much smaller sum....

The FLOAT Shelf is the iMac shelf Apple would’ve made

I’ve long been a fan of Twelve South’s BackPack for iMac, a sturdy shelf designed for an iMac or Apple display. However, if you need something bigger, the FLOAT Shelf debuts on Kickstarter today. I received an advance unit and like what I see.

The FLOAT Shelf provides a wide platform on the back of Apple’s all-in-one for displaying collectibles, mementos, and other items. I use it to store an eternal solid state drive and other accessories that would normally clutter up my desktop. With its patent-pending, bracketless mounting channel, the FLOAT Shelf is easy to install. It simply slides into position on the stand of a tapered-edge iMac, then its mounting channel uses geometry and gravity to secure it in place. 

The shelf’s anodized finish is a perfect aesthetic match with the iMac. Made of aircraft-grade...

Samsung has officially ceased worldwide production of its Galaxy Note 7 after multiple reports of replacement models, like the original ones, catching fire.

UK Is Banning Apple Watch From Cabinet Meetings Over...

Mickeycaskill quotes a report from TechWeekEurope UK: Ministers have been forbidden to wear the Apple Watch during cabinet meetings due to the risk they could be hacked by Russian agents, according to a report. Prime minister Theresa May imposed the new rules following several high-profile hacks that have been blamed on Russia. Several cabinet ministers previously wore the Apple Watch, including former Justice Secretary Michael Gove. Mobile phones have already been banned due to similar concerns. Politically motivated hackers have caused disruption in several recent incidents, including the hack of the Democratic National Committee, which resulted in the release of a large cache of internal emails. One of the paper's sources said: "The Russians are trying to hack everything."

Update: Kapeli has responded to Apple’s allegations in a new blog post, claiming that Apple never made contact before deleting the app and developer account. Additionally, Kapeli shared audio of the phone call with Apple regarding the issue.

Last week, we reported on the removal of popular developer app Dash from the App Store, as well as the termination of the creator’s Apple Developer account. The company that publishes Dash, Kapeli, originally stated that it did not have any idea why Apple removed the app from the App Store, though it was later revealed that Apple had found evidence of App Store review manipulation. Now, Apple has issued a statement regarding the...

Apple Responds to Dash Controversy

Jim Dalrymple, on the Dash/App Store affair:

Apple’s anti-fraud team has apparently been working with the
developer for some time to stop fraudulent positive reviews, and
negative reviews on competitors’ accounts. According to Apple, all
attempts to work with the developer have failed, resulting in the
account being terminated.

“Almost 1,000 fraudulent reviews were detected across two accounts
and 25 apps for this developer so we removed their apps and
accounts from the App Store,” Apple spokesperson, Tom Neumayr,
said in a statement provided to The Loop on Monday. “Warning was
given in advance of the termination and attempts were made to
resolve the issue with the developer but they were unsuccessful.
We will terminate developer accounts for ratings and review fraud,
including actions designed to hurt...

The iPhone 7 Plus makes up 30% of new model iPhone...

Survey data from Fiksu indicates that the iPhone 7 Plus now makes up 30% of iPhone 7 sales, the highest percentage ever for the Plus models. The ratio may go even higher for the December quarter. 

This could push the average selling price of the iPhone for the quarter to an all time high above $700. Fiksu provides market data on iOS and iPhone model adoption through customers' apps that users install on their phones. 

Fiksu data can't be used by itself to estimate absolute numbers of iPhone sales, since it amounts to a survey of a subset of all iPhones. However, “it's probably a reasonable indicator of relative sales” for the new iPhone 7 and 7 Plus models compared to launches for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s models, notes Seeking Alpha.
