Rumor: iPhone 7 to start at 32 GB of storage, Apple...

It’s a rumor, but if it’s true, it could be pretty useful.

A post on a Chinese social media site cites supply chain research indicates that the iPhone 7 will feature 32 GB storage as the $199 base model, which would mean Apple would finally drop the 16 GB SKU from its lineup with its new flagship smartphone expected in the fall.

The source has a credible background in terms of Apple rumor accuracy and correctly predicted the 4-inch iPhone SE in 2016 based on supply chain sources.

The analyst also claims that iPhone 7 will feature 2 GB of RAM, the same specification as iPhone 6s. It is unclear if the analyst is referring to the iPhone 7 as a category or the specific 4.7 inch model. KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has reported that the larger 5.5 inch iPhone 7...

2017 iPhone May Include Enhanced Taptic Engine for...

In a report corroborating details about Apple moving towards an elongated three-year period between major iPhone refreshes, or a tick-tock-tock cycle, Japanese website Nikkei claimed that 2017 models will be equipped with a "high-performance motor" able to "create more complex tactile vibrations."

The report does not provide additional details about the new motor, but it is reasonable to assume that Apple could upgrade the Taptic Engine in the 2017 iPhone. The new motor could allow for improvements to both 3D Touch and broader haptic feedback when interacting with the smartphone's display.

The so-called iPhone 8 is expected to have enough major changes, including an edge-to-...

The Apple TV shoots from ninth to third place in...

Okay, let’s quit calling it a hobby. Apple TV sales have propelled Apple into third place for global set-top box popularity in 2015, based on revenue, according to IHS, Inc. That’s up from ninth place in 2014, according to the research group.

The surge is courtesy of continued strong growth in consumer retail over-the-top television (OTT) boxes, and the consolidation of the top players of the global set-top box market with Arris's acquisition of Pace and Technicolor's acquisition of Cisco's set-top box division, which were finalized last year. Bringing Apple into global contention from a unit-shipment standpoint, more than 10 million Apple TVs were shipped in 2015 -- the fifth largest volume in the world -- following Arris, Technicolor, and Skyworth and ZTE, according to IHS, Inc.

 “The STB market has certainly grown since 2007, when Steve Jobs originally described the Apple TV business line as a ‘hobby,’” says Daniel Simmons, director of connected home for IHS...

Patent report: multi-screen video user interface for...

Apple files for — and is granted — lots of patents by the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office. Many are for inventions that never see the light of day. However, you never can tell which ones will materialize in a real product, so here are today’s patent highlights:

A future remote control app for the Apple TV may provide a “multi-screen video user interface” as evidenced by a patent (number 9,357,250) granted Apple today. It involves a handheld device — an iPhone or iPad, most likely — used to search for content to be displayed on a television. 

The device presents data according to a first user interface, and while searching for content, any changes to the navigation state of the handheld device are sent to the TV. The television receives an update and reformats the data according to a second user interface optimized for displaying the data on the television. 

The first user interface is native to the handheld device and the second user...

iPhone 7 Rumored to Include 32GB of Base Storage,...

According to supply chain research conducted by an analyst in China, Apple's upcoming iPhone 7 might finally drop the base 16GB storage model from the lineup when it launches in the fall (via 9to5Mac). The IHS Technology analyst claims that the new introductory storage level for the iPhone 7 will be 32GB for $199, an option that is currently not available on iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus devices.

This change could alter the iPhone line's storage tier offerings from 16GB, 64GB, and 128GB currently available to possibly 32GB, 128GB, and 256GB. Earlier in the year, it was rumored that the iPhone 7 Plus could gain a high-end...

By Aaron Lee

Escape Velocity Apps' CloudSlice for iOS lets you use your favorite cloud services in a new way. It lets you treat all of your linked cloud services as a single storage location which helps just a tiny bit to meet the need for a personal, private cloud to store your data that you'd access from your devices anywhere. 

One advance of CloudSlice is that, rather than rely on the security measures of a single service, it uses the combined security of five different services (iCloud, Dropbox, Microsoft OneDrive, Google Drive, and Box) to safely keep your photos private on the cloud. 

It works like this: CloudSlice lets you link up to five cloud storage services to your iOS devices and use them as one cloud storage location. All you need to do is select photos from your photo library and tap the upload button – CloudSlice handles all of the encryption, slicing and storage work for...

ADATA’s Card Reader with Lightning Connector is, as you can tell from the name, a Lightning card reader specially designed for iOS devices and licensed with Apple MFi (“Made for iPhone’) certification. It supports a wide range of video formats, and raw image files. 

The card reader can handle up to a 256GB SD or 256GB microSD card and — unlike Apple’s $29 Lightning to SD Card Camera Reader — features both read and write capabilities. That’s right. You can freely move content to and from the reader to your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch

The ADATA accessory is also, as far as I know, the first to combine SD and microSD on one reader. This provides simple, cost effective storage expansion since you can use your existing cards instead of buying proprietary expansion cards or additional hardware....

Last year Apple acquired a UK startup that’s developed a natural language application programming interface [API] that allows humans and machines to have a much more natural conversation. It will use the technology for a “big upgrade” to Siri, its voice-activated digital assistant, reports Tech Insider.

VocalIQ has developed a self-learning dialogue API that’s based on a decade of natural language research, belief tracking, decision making and message generation. Last October The Financial Times reported that “While VocalIQ's speech processing and machine learning technology could be incorporated into devices from wearables to the connected home, the company was particularly focused on in-car applications. This included a collaboration with General Motors. 

VocalIQ described how a "conversational voice-dialog system" in a car's navigation system could prevent drivers...

In the court filing with the U.S. District Court for Central California, Caltech accused Apple of selling various iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple Watch models, along with other Wi-Fi products, that incorporate IRA/LDPC encoders and/or decoders and allegedly infringe on its patents. The university is seeking monetary damages. 

In 2015 Caltech sued Canon, Nikon and 4 other digital-camera makers, for infringing on six patents relating to pixel sensors in digital cameras. All of the patents came after research the university was doing for NASA.

Realm VP: Developers not that interested in watchOS...

Apple developers aren't very interested in writing apps for the Watch these days, Tim Anglade, an app developer and vice president for the Realm mobile database Realm, told Business Insider. About 100,000 app developers use Realm's database in apps used by about one billion people.

"On a weekly basis we're seeing very few Watch apps, compared to iOS apps," Anglade told Business Insider. “For every 1,000 new iOS apps being built, there are 10 tvOS apps and maybe one Watch app.”

There was excitement in writing watchOS apps when the Apple Watch apps first debuted, but now it's seen as merely a companion to the iPhone, and many developers aren't seeing much money in Watch companion apps, he adds. That could change with the next generation Apple smartwatch and watchOS upgrade. There might be developments regarding this announced at the upcoming...

Apple is looking to make evolutionary rather than revolutionary changes to its iPhone this year as it extends the major refresh cycle to once every three years, according to a report in Tuesday’s Nikkei newspaper.

The change, which the newspaper said Apple is “likely” to make, is due to there being little room left for major advances in smartphone hardware—at least until an entirely new technology comes on the scene. As chips get faster and software gets better, the benefits seen by annual upgrades are getting smaller.

Nikkei said this year’s model will look “almost identical” to the iPhone 6 and have minor changes such as improved camera quality, water resistance and a better battery. The headphone jack is also slated to be removed, it said.

If the Kickstarter campaign being launched today by Slovenian startup Organika Cases is successful, those of us in the Apple blogging community may have to start rating iPhone cases on their scents! That's right; the company is raising funds to start production of cases that use wonderfully fragrant organic substances as a backing material.

The materials are meant to provide a lasting aroma for about a year, and my test with an Organika case made of coffee beans shows just how remarkable the scents can be. Picking up the case and placing it near my nose evoked the delicious scents of a coffeeshop, without the caffeine and cost of a cup of coffee! Other materials that are being used to create these cases include Alpine Hay, Jasmine Petals, and Rose Petals.

An IHS Technology analyst has posted on Chinese social media that company supply chain research indicates that the iPhone 7 will feature 32 GB storage as the $199 base model, which would mean Apple would finally drop the much-loathed 16 GB SKU from its lineup with its new flagship smartphone expected in the fall. IHS has a reasonable track record of accuracy when it comes to Apple rumors, correctly predicting last year that a 4 inch iPhone would debut in 2016 based on supply chain sources … which obviously transpired into reality as the iPhone SE.

The analyst also claims that iPhone 7 will feature 2 GB of RAM, the same specification as iPhone 6s. It is unclear if the analyst is referring to the iPhone 7 as a category or the specific 4.7 inch model.

Sony’s a6300 is one of the Japanese company’s most recently released cameras and is the successor to the very popular a6000. The camera has already received a ton of praise — Jeff took it for a test drive the other week, and enjoyed its 4K shooting abilities.

One common complaint, however, is the lack of a selfie screen on the a6300. Sony missed a big opportunity by not including a built-in way for vloggers to view themselves while on camera. 

The solution? Use your iPhone as a digital viewfinder. Not only will such a setup work with the a6300, but it’ll work with other digital cameras that support such functionality.

Iran Forces Messaging Apps To Move Data To Iranian...

An anonymous reader writes: According a report from Reuters, the Iranian government wants to be able to track private and semi-private conversations on messaging apps, and has given companies behind popular messaging apps one year to move their data onto servers in Iran. As it stands, many social networks are already blocked in Iran, and now the government wants to control even more online communication platforms. Apps like WhatsApp and Telegram, which have become incredibly popular in Iran, allow users to communicate with no government control. With Telegram, users can contact hundreds of people by creating groups. Now, even though WhatsApp for example is required to move their data to Iranian servers, it's unlikely the government will be able to intercept messages from the app since it features end-to-end encryption. WhatsApp can't even read the content of communications -- only WhatsApp users can decrypt the messages in their conversations. Apple's iMessage also features an...

Indian minister holds out hope for Apple stores

Apple may still get to set up wholly-owned stores in India, with the country’s Commerce Ministry promising to discuss the matter with the Finance Ministry that had objected to the proposal.

Indian government rules require that foreign-owned, single-brand retailers source 30 percent of their products locally, but the Indian government had indicated that it could provide a waiver of that requirement for branded stores of retailers of high-tech products. Apple had hoped for such an exemption from the government.

On Monday, Commerce and Industry Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said that her ministry did not oppose providing a waiver to high-tech companies like Apple and would discuss the matter with the Finance Ministry.

At the event, the company's executive said that ZenBook 3 is better than both MacBook Air and the 12-inch MacBook. As for the specifications, the ZenBook 3, which is crafted from aerospace-grade aluminum alloy, sports a 12.5-inch full-HD display (1920x1080 pixels), and offers up to Core i7 processor, 16GB of 2133MHz RAM, up to a 1TB PCIe Gen 3 x4 SSD, a next-gen USB Type-C port (for power and data transfer), powerful quad-speaker audio by Harman Kardon, and a fingerprint scanner. Do note that there is only one USB port on the device. The entry-level variant featuring Core i5 processor, 256GB of SSD and 4GB of RAM is priced at 999, while the top-of-the-line model will set you back by $1,999.

ASUS today at Computex 2016 in Taiwan announced a wide range of new products, including the ZenBook 3, its third-generation ultraportable notebook that is thinner, lighter, and faster than Apple's lookalike 12-inch Retina MacBook.

The 12.5-inch ZenBook 3 has an ultra-thin 11.9mm aerospace-grade aluminum alloy chassis that weights just 2 pounds and is "50% stronger than the standard alloy" used in competing notebooks. Comparatively, the Retina MacBook is 13.1mm thick and weighs 2.03 pounds.

ZenBook 3's display is crafted from edge-to-edge, scratch-resistant Corning Gorilla Glass 4, with a 1,920x1,080 pixels resolution and wide 72% NTSC color gamut. The notebook has a slim bezel design that provides an 82% screen-to-body ratio for a maximum viewing experience with a minimal footprint.

Poll: With new tech for both all-metal and all-glass...

A KGI report last month suggested that Apple could be headed back to an all-glass iPhone after a succession of metal-bodied models. Different people will have different aesthetic preferences, but there have also so far been practical considerations at play.

Glass backs allow for a clean design, but are vulnerable to smashing if dropped. Metal is more robust, but requires antenna cutouts which are not to everyone’s tastes.

However, new tech could overcome both issues, so we thought it would be interesting to find out which way you’d like Apple to go if the drawbacks of each could be eliminated from the equation …

Indian government nixes Apple’s plans to sell used...

India's minister of commerce and industry, Nirmala Sitharaman, held a press conference on Monday to announce the government had rejected Apple's request, according to Live Mint

We are not in favour of any company selling used phones in the company, however certified they may be,” commerce and industry minister Nirmala Sitharaman said at a press conference.

In March Apple sought permission from the government in India to sell used iPhones in the country. The goal was to increase its smartphone marketshare in India — which is under 2% right now.

Indian site LiveMint is reporting that the Indian government has formally rejected Apple’s request to sell refurbished iPhones in the country as a way to make them more affordable to local consumers.

A newly-formed lobbying group opposed the plan, with Bloomberg reporting earlier this month that the government was expected to rule against Apple. This now seems to have been confirmed, despite Tim Cook making the case for the exception during his recent meeting with Prime Minister Modi …

Connect Amazon Echo (Alexa) to IFTTT

IFTTT makes the possibilities practically endless for what you can do with an Amazon Echo running Alexa. IFTTT provides workflows that connect Alexa to many of the most popular cloud services on the Internet. For example, Alexa can make a spreadsheet of all the songs you listen to using your Prime account, Email you a shopping list, sync To-Dos to Evernote, find your phone, set reminders on your phone, extend Alexa to manage your TV using Harmony, run Wink shortcuts, print files, manage a Wemo bulb (Belkin), control otherwise unsupported thermostats, control items within apps (e.g. make all your Hue lights a given color), time things (e.g. turn on the air conditioning for an hour), lock a door using an otherwise unsupported lock (e.g. with a Smarthings), do random things (e.g. assign a random color to a Hue light), interface with Google Calendar, and so much more.

Basically, if a service can interact with IFTTT using an API, then your Alexa can be made to talk to it. But...

What Will HPE Sell Next?


I joined a bunch of analysts in discussing Hewlett Packard Enterprise's next move at a secret conclave last week. The company had just announced the sale of its IT services, which basically undid much of Mark Hurd's work as CEO. It already had sold off PCs and printers, more than undoing Carly Fiorina's earlier efforts. Granted, HPE spun it like it was an acquisition, but this move leaves the firm even more crippled, suggesting there's more to come. To hear Meg Whitman speak, it was like she had completely lost touch with reality.

VocalIQ acquisition hints at how Apple plans to win...

When the original developers of Siri jumped ship to develop a competing intelligent assistant called Viv, they dismissed Apple’s implementation of their intelligent assistant as just ‘a clever AI chatbot.’ We’ve since heard that Apple plans to offer a Siri SDK that will allow it to call on the capabilities of third-party apps (something I called for last year) – but it seems like the company is also seeking to go even beyond Viv’s capabilities.

Apple last year acquired British intelligent assistant developer VocalIQ – a...

"Instead of revealing the true condition of the company and its prospects, defendants hid those facts from investors and chose to issue strong guidance and paint a picture of a bright future with a new mega-customer," the complai...

Vendetta Online Adds Station Conquest

February 1, 2010 6:00 AM

Guild Software has added a new feature for its massively-multiplayer online space strategy game, Vendetta Online. Station Conquest gives groups of players the chance to attack a space station and take control of it. Planned updates for the new feature include holding territory around the station and manufacture of automated drones for mining.

This new gameplay mechanic allows groups of players to coordinate their attacks on a particular station, seizing control of it through the disabling of defense turrets, and taking direct ownership via a new "key" based hierarchical authentication system. Owner keys may then be distributed to other leaders, while various User keys may be generated and given to those needing only more limited types of access. The entire conquest system will be expanded over the coming months to allow surrounding territory to be held for the benefit of the station, while automated drones may be manufactured to mine ores...

Todd Hollenshead Discusses id's Merger With...

February 2, 2010 6:00 AM

Edge Online recently published a brief interview with id Software's Todd Hollenshead. The game developer discussed the company's merger with Bethesda Softworks parent company Zenimax Media.

Of course, everyone looks at it as, Well, id was purchased by Zenimax! but I think its just as true that we acquired an internal publishing capacity, said Todd Hollenshead. Thats really what the relationship is. As much as we have valued our publishing relationships with other thirdparty publishers in the past, there is a difference, because we were separate companies. Although we were trying to work together, ultimately there is an idea that we have divergent goals.

Its actually worked out really well. They value development for its own sake, rather than just trying to put something in a box and relying on marketing for sales, said Hollenshead. They believe in the quality of the product you put in and the value of the entertainment the...
