News: Report: Apple’s Siri-based Amazon Echo...

A new report claims that Apple is working on a Siri-based competitor to Amazon’s Echo, but suggests that the solution will come in the form of a refreshed Apple TV set-top box, rather than the standalone speaker reported earlier this week. A source has told VentureBeat that the plan is to build on the Apple TV to “solve problems with the existing box and remote control,” noting that Apple wants the “Apple TV to be just the…

Mac: Pixelmator Team Pixelmator 3.5

Pixelmator Team’s Pixelmator ($30) has become a go-to app when it comes to editing photos — it’s significantly cheaper than the 800 lb. gorilla that is Photoshop, and delivers most of the functionality that the typical user would need. Further, Pixelmator Team keeps enhancing it, and version 3.5 adds smarter selection tools and deeper integration with the OS X Photos app. The Quick Selection Tool and Magnetic Selection Tool have both been improved to make it easier to make detailed and precise selections, and a new Retouch Extension for Photos lets you take advantage of seriously advanced retouching tools without having to leave the Photos app.

Gear: Joby GorillaPod Speaker Stand

Joby’s GorillaPod Speaker Stand ($40) is designed to hold a Bluetooth speaker, whether to elevate it for a better listening angle, or to keep it away from any kind of undesirable surface. GorillaPod has three flexible, wrappable legs with rubber feet. A platform and cinch cord rest on top of the tripod to firmly hold a small speaker. Underneath that platform is a 1/4”-20 mount, which will allow mountable speakers to attach directly to…

Patent troll VirnetX, fresh on the heels of a $626 million FaceTime and iMessages patent victory over Apple, now wants a federal judge to permanently turn off those popular features.

VirnetX on Wednesday also asked the judge presiding over the litigation to increase the damages the East Texas jury awarded in February by another $190 million or more. Apple wants a retrial, claiming that...

Rumor: Apple in talks with companies about charging...

Apple is looking towards a means of charging its cars, whenever they may happen to debut.

The company is rumored to be in talks with several charging station companies about their underlying technologies.

The talks are largely unsurprising given that Apple is widely believed to be researching and developing its own electric vehicle, which could enter production by 2020.

The charging firms themselves are reportedly treading carefully and limiting they information with Apple, which may wind up being a competitor in the next decade.

It is unclear whether Apple would want its own proprietary technology, such as Tesla Motors’ Supercharger network, or design a system compatible with offerings from other market players.

Tiny HopperGo Neatly Stashes Loads of Mobile...


Dish Network continues to change the way we view recorded TV. The company made location-shifting as easy as time-shifting via its Sling technology, and its Hopper let users transfer recordings to a mobile device, which has allowed for offline viewing of content. Now the company has introduced yet another option for taking recorded content just about anywhere: the Dish HopperGO, a compact DVR hard disk drive that allows users to transfer content from a Dish Hopper 2 or Hopper 3 set-top box to the portable unit.

Report: Apple considered buying Time Warner last...

The Financial Times is reporting that Apple considered a buyout of Time Warner late last year, with Apple executive Eddy Cue raising the idea at a meeting with Time Warner’s head of corporate strategy, Olaf Olafsson. The idea of bid was very much tentative and did not enter serious negotiations involving Tim Cook, according to the report. However, Apple is still interested in acquiring media company talent and sources indicate the company is ramping spending on original content: “several hundred million dollars a year”.

Apple has long been rumored to want to launch a skinny cable subscription service for internet television, in concert with its Apple TV set top box. At Startup Fest earlier in the week, Tim Cook said he wants...

PV150 Power Bank provides extra juice to your iOS...

ADATA Technology’s PV150 Power Bank provides extra juice to your iPhone or iPad — and looks good doing it thanks to its leather-textured exterior. (The exterior is actually made of plastic, but sports leather textures and stitching.)

The smooth streamlined body — available in black, white, or blue — also provides some extra “grip-ability” and even feels good to the touch. It’s also small enough to slip into a small bag or purse. Of course, appearance, size, and texture would be useless if the PV150 didn’t pack some punch. It does, thanks to its 1000mAh battery, single 2A input for faster self-charging, and a 2.1A output so you can charge your gadget more quickly. 

My tests showed that the PV 150 Power Bank, when fully charged, could recharge my iPhone 6s Plus about four times before needing to be recharged itself. It took about an hour to charge my phone from near death (10% battery power) to 100%. A full charge of...

Review: Burkley hardshell leather MacBook Air case,...

I’m not normally one for hiding Apple’s gorgeous designs away inside cases, but my 11-inch MacBook Air is used almost exclusively when I’m out and about, so it does normally live in a TwelveSouth BookBook case to keep it safe on its travels. I adore that case, so persuading me to set it aside for an alternative would not be an easy task.

But I was very taken with the leather iPhone and iPad cases I recently reviewed from NY-based Burkley, so I decided to give one of the company’s snap-on leather MacBook Air covers a try. It currently offers these for the MacBook Air only (both 11- and 13-inch) – though it does also have a non-snap-on variation for the 12-inch MacBook.

Burkley likes to mix up its leather offerings for each product, with the Antique Camel Leather I liked last time not available for the MacBook, so I tried the Special...

All drop-tests should be done this way: iPhone 6s vs...

Drop-tests are always fun to watch, but I’ve always felt that the reliability of most of them is suspect simply because there are so many variables.

Most involve someone dropping a phone by hand, and the distance is often as imprecisely measured as ‘waist height’ or ‘head height,’ making it hard to be sure both phones experienced exactly the same force. Dropping a phone from a hand can result in differences in initial angles, and releasing one side of the phone a fraction of a second before the other can impart a rotation to the device. In short, most drop-tests are more...

Ye gods! You're a deity in Black and White 2

By Aaron Lee

If you've ever wanted to be a god, Black and White 2 from Feral Interactive gives you the chance. It's a $19.99 sequel to the real-time strategy sequel for Mac OS X 10.9.5 or higher. It's a fun, addicting game, though not without flaws. 

In Black and White 2, which cleverly combines elements of different game genres, you reprise your role as a powerful deity in search of a following. You return to the once idyllic world of Eden, where the discovery of weaponry and warfare has tainted the world. With the help of your gigantic Creature that you raise from infancy, you must earn the respect and worship of the natives. 

How you choose to do that, whether through nurturing them or terrorizing them, is up to you. You can choose to restore order by building a harmonious city for your flock — or by waging war on non-believers. Heck, you can even toss your own followers at their enemies if...

Nile Cruise holidays seem best in all over travels, from the positive side we offer the opportunity to travel in Nile Cruise with the 5 star comforts of hotel.

Peter Thiel, Gawker, and Freedom of Speech

Jason Willick, writing for The American Interest in defense of Peter Thiel:

It’s also not clear what policy response Gawker’s outraged
defenders would recommend. Put caps on the amount of money people
can contribute to legal efforts they sympathize with? That would
put the ACLU and any number of advocacy groups out of business. It
would also represent a far greater threat to free expression than
a court-imposed legal liability for the non-consensual publication
of what is essentially revenge porn. If Marshall and others are
worried about the superrich harassing critics with genuinely
frivolous lawsuits — as, yes, authoritarian characters like
Donald Trump have attempted to do — they would have more success
backing tort reform measures to limit litigiousness overall than
attacking Thiel for contributing to a legitimate...

Opinion: Wouldn’t it be nice if the new MacBook Pro...

Earlier this week it was reported that an upcoming MacBook Pro refresh would bring a thinner design, Touch ID support, and an OLED touch bar above the keyboard. One of the longstanding requests by MacBook users, however, has been an option for cellular connectivity and now it looks like we might be one step closer to that coming to fruition. As noted by PatentlyApple, Apple has recently been granted a patent for a MacBook with cellular connectivity.

This isn’t the first time we’ve heard whispers that Apple is working on MacBook with cellular connectivity. In 2011, a MacBook Pro with 3G connectivity and a SIM card slot from 2007 was put up for...

Apple will have to sell at least 30% locally sourced goods if it wants to open up retail outlets in India, a senior government official tells Reuters.

Apple will open three retail stores in India before the end of 2027, reports FactorDaily, quoting an unnamed “source familiar with the decision.” The retail stores will reportedly open in Delhi, Bangalore and Mumbai within the the next 18 months. According to the report, each Apple Store will be spread across 10,000 square feet and will be located at high street locations of the three cities. The stores, for which Apple executives are searching for real estate, will need an investment of $3 million to $5 million (Rs20 crore to Rs33 crore) each. 

A legislative change in India last year made foreign retailers who sell high-tech goods exempt from the 30%-...

According to Reuters, Apple is investigating how to charge electric cars, talking to charging station companies and hiring engineers with expertise in the area, according to “people familiar with the matter and a review of LinkedIn profiles.”

The article says it’s not certain whether Apple would want its own proprietary technology, such as Tesla Motors' Supercharger network, or design a system compatible with offerings from other market players. Still, Apple reportedly hired at least four electric vehicle charging specialists, including former BMW employee Rónán Ó Braonáin.

Proving that 99% of all statistics are made up, the Amazon (Kindle), Barnes & Noble (Nook), and Hewlett Packard deliver the best customer experience in the computer and tablet industry, according to the 2016 Temkin Experience Ratings, an annual ranking of companies based on a survey of 10,000 U.S. consumers. However, according to the J.D. Power Tablet Satisfaction Study for 2016 Volume 1 concerning the US market, Apple is still topping the charts in tablet satisfaction with the iPad,

But back to the Temkin report: Amazon took the top spot for the second year in a row, earning a rating of 73% and placing 28th overall out of 294 companies across 20 industries. Barnes & Noble and Hewlett-Packard tied for the distant second spot out of 12 firms in the industry, each receiving a rating of 61% and an overall rank of 142nd. At the other end of the spectrum, eMachines and Compaq tied for the lowest-rated computer and tablet maker, each with a rating...

ClipBuddy a useful tool for 'power'...

By Aaron Lee

There are lots of multiple clipboard apps available for the Mac (and you have to wonder why Apple hasn't built that functionality into Mac OS X). If you're looking for a powerful, customization one that can store images (and more), or one that lets you exclude apps that you don't want to save clippings from, give Ondesoft ClipBuddy a try.

This multiple clipboard is designed to log all clipboard data. on OS X 10.6 or higher. This data can be images, PDFs, text (including "rich" text coming from Safari, Firefox, Chrome, Word, Excel, iChat, etc.) or a mixture of them. ClipBuddy saves an unlimited number of clips (actually that number is limited by how much memory you have on your Mac) in a searchable database. The app works fine with any application and data that works with the Mac OS X Clipboard.

You can be up and running ClipBuddy with little training. If you've copied an item,...

Plaintiffs want to keep the ‘Error 53’ lawsuit alive

Apple's motion to dismiss a pending class action lawsuit related to the "Error 53" Touch ID issue was countered in a recent court filing that claimed the company's remedial actions, which include an iOS software update and reimbursement efforts, are inadequate, reports AppleInsider.

Error 53 involved a problem brought on by having an unauthorized technician fix your device. When an iPhone is services by an authorized Apple service provider or Apple retail store for changes that affect the Touch ID sensor, the pairing is re-validated. However, with an unofficial repair that pairing can go unvalidated and cause the Error 53 message to appear when iOS is updated or restored on the device.

Apple released a software update to address the problem and offeredto reimburse customers who paid to have affected devices...

Apple Pay is rolling out in full force in Singapore today with Visa, MasterCard and five major banks on board, reports The Straits Times. This makes Singapore the sixth country to get Apple Pay, after the U.S., UK, Canada, Australia and China.

Together, the five banks - POSB, DBS Bank, OCBC Bank, United Overseas Bank (UOB) and Standard Chartered Bank - account for more than 80 per cent of the Visa and MasterCard credit and debit cards issued in Singapore, the article adds. Apple Pay was launched in Singapore in April; however, its use was limited to holders of American Express-issued cards until today.

Apple hires mobile encryption pioneer as encryption...

Apple has rehired a mobile encryption pioneer as it continues to face pressure from governments wanting access to user data stored on iPhones. 

Jon Callas most recently worked as a co-founder of Silent Circle, which produced the security-minded Blackphone and has joined the iPhone and iPad maker in an undisclosed capacity, Apple revealed to Reuters. Callas is a veteran of the security industry who also co-founded PGP Corporation.

He first worked at Apple from 1995-1997, then again from 2009-2011. He has two patents to his name from that second stint that are both focused on full-disk encryption, something that Apple uses in its smartphones, tablets and computers.

Unfade: A photo scanning app from the makers of...

My go-to app for making my world paper-free is Scanbot (free with in-app purchases). Every bill, statement, or document that comes into my house gets an immediate Scanbot scan, then is stored locally and in the cloud for future reference while the paper is shredded or recycled. Today the same company that developed Scanbot -- doo GmbH -- released a new app called Unfade ($4.99) that makes scanning, touchup and storage of old photographs as easy as scanning paper documents with Scanbot.

The scanning process is remarkably similar to Scanbot's, but easier. All you do is tap a button to start scanning, and then point the iPhone camera at printed photos one at a time. There are some simple rules regarding lighting that you need to follow, but once that's understood, it's as easy as pointing the...

Toyota Forms 'Strategic Partnership' With...

An anonymous reader quotes a report from The Verge: Toyota and Uber are forming a "strategic partnership" which will include an investment by the Japanese automaker in the San Francisco-based ride-sharing company. Under the agreement, Uber drivers can lease their vehicles from Toyota and cover their payments through earnings generated as Uber drivers. Toyota says it will invest an undisclosed sum in Uber, which is already the most valuable technology startup in the world. A partnership between Toyota and Uber could help the ride-sharing company solve a lingering question surrounding its self-driving ambitions, namely where its going to get a fleet of cars to equip with its autonomous technology. Toyota, which is the world's largest car manufacturer, is taking self-driving technology very seriously. It recently established the Toyota Research Institute to develop AI technologies in two main areas: autonomous cars and robot helpers for around the home. Last month, Google, Ford, Volvo...

Poll: Would you prefer an OLED touch bar instead of...

Many people have been eagerly waiting for Apple to refreshed its entire MacBook Pro lineup with a thinner design, faster internals, Siri support, and more. A report yesterday said all of that is coming later this year in Q4, but added an additional detail: an OLED touch bar above the keyboard that would replace the row of function keys.

This is a new idea that hasn’t really been suggested for Apple’s MacBook Pro lineup before, but it has a variety of interesting possibilities. But with a significant change like that comes a steep, steep learning curve. The quick shortcuts we’ve all become accustomed to using throughout OS X would have an added twist, but could they potentially become easier to access in the long run? In the end, however, it would all come down to whether or not...

Apple To Open Up Siri To Developers, Release An...

An anonymous reader quotes a report from BGR: According to a new report from The Information, Apple is finally ready to let Siri grow up. Specifically, the publication relays that Apple will finally offer official Siri APIs to developers, thus paving the way for third-party integrations, the kind that Amazon Echo users can't seem to get enough of. Things like ordering an Uber or pizza are currently impossible, because Siri is locked down by Apple. What's more, Apple is also reportedly working on a standalone device meant to compete with the Amazon Echo and Google's recently unveiled Google Home. If that's true, it's huge news -- Apple has been lacking any kind of smart home hub until now, but a Siri-powered device would be a serious play to get Apple into our homes. Google is the latest tech giant to announce a virtual home assistant. It unveiled Google Home, a small round gadget with microphones and speakers that listen and respond to your questions and commands.

His credentials in the security and privacy world make him a strong asset for Apple—just as he was when he previously worked for the company—and should have the FBI very worried about how far it'll be able to hack into future iPhones and Macs.

Google's Abacus May Count Out Passwords


By the end of the year, Android devs will be able to use a trust API from Google's Project Abacus in their apps, Google ATAP Director Dan Kaufman suggested at last week's I/O conference. The API, which will run in the background continually, is aimed at doing away with passwords. It will use a smartphone's sensors to check users' current locations, typing patterns and voice patterns, as well as for facial recognition. It will create a cumulative trust score that will authenticate users so they can unlock their devices or sign into applications.
