Chromixium Adds Polish to Chrome


Chromixium is a new Linux distro that goes one big step further than the few existing distros catering to the Chrome OS. It one-ups Google's semi-proprietary Chrome OS locked into the popular Chromebook hardware. Chromixium sole developer Rich Jack's innovative version 1.0, released last month, is a Chrome OS clone that runs on nearly any aging or newer computer with the user's choice of the fully open-sourced Chromium Web browser or Google's Chrome browser.

Hope Springs Eternal: a New Approach to OS X at WWDC

For the past few years, Apple has introduced a new version of OS X at WWDC. The demos have been presented with wit, charm, and enthusiasm, but, in practice, customers have found the initial release wanting, even with public beta testing. Can Apple change its routine to surprise and delight us in a more fundamental way?

Just Mobile’s AluCable LED is a 1-meter aluminum-accented Lightning cable with a small LED built into the USB plug head. The light lets users know whether or not an iOS device is done charging without having to look at the device’s screen — the LED is designed to pulse amber when charging, and glow solid green when a device is fully charged.

Apple's mysterious vans reportedly collecting...

Apple thought it was being subtle by sending unmarked, camera-equipped vans around a handful of American cities earlier this year, but news of the effort immediately sparked our curiosity: What’s the Cupertino company up to? Will we see a self-driving Apple car in the future?

As cool as that sounds, our bet was on a more likely answer: That Apple plans to revamp Maps with its own 3D maps and street views in an effort to compete with Google. According to a new report from 9to5Mac, that’s exactly what the company is up to. Apple has been acquiring companies and doing doing under-the-radar mapping work to build out its own map database by 2017.

Wood Chips: Electronics May Go Back to Nature


"Wood chips" takes on new meaning with a new green technology, cellulose nanofibril, or CNF, developed by researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Products Laboratory and detailed in a research paper published this week. The "chips" in question are indeed made mostly of wood -- but they are also computer chips. As of 2007, about 3.2 million tons of electronic waste was being generated each year, the researchers noted.

The only real fix for the Messages bug that allows a string of Unicode characters to crash your iPhone is a software update, and Apple has promised that one is coming soon. Until then, the company said, there’s a workaround you can use to get back into Messages.

Siri saves the day when a bug locks you out of Messages.

Siri to the rescue! According to a new support document Apple added on Thursday, the best way to regain access to your messages is by asking Siri to do it for you. First, ask her to read your unread messages, then have her reply to the offending message. Your reply can be anything at all—the fix is actually sending the message. That will let you back into Messages, where you can swipe left to delete the thread.

I guess they had something Apple wanted.

Earlier this month, Apple completed its acquisition of Metaio, a German augmented reality firm that first started life as a side project at Volkswagen, for an as-yet-unknown project.

The acquisition was completed with a full transfer of shares from Metaio’s holdings to Apple.

Metaio recently canceled its user conference originally set for June, disabled its Twitter accounts and just days ago posted a notice announcing an end to product and subscription sales.

When reached for comment, Apple offered its usual statement of confirmation, saying, “Apple buys smaller...

If there was one Indiegogo worth getting behind, it’d be this one.

The App Camp for Girls 3.0 fundraiser has launched and is looking to raise US$100,000 to finance this year’s App Camp for Girls programs. The fundraiser works to address the larger issue of why only 20 percent of software engineers are female and why that percentage is even lower among mobile app developers.

The same is true of technology classes in schools, wherein there are few opportunities for girls to explore high-tech fields that aren’t already dominated by males.

App Camp 3.0 will launch an additional location, this time in Vancouver, British Columbia.

How Google took a page from Apple to secure Android...

In case you missed it, Google launched a new mobile payment service at its annual I/O developers conference Thursday. It’s called Android Pay. But didn’t Google already have a mobile payment service? Yes, yes, Google Wallet. That’s not going away—in fact, it’s getting a reboot as a peer-to-peer payment service—but Android Pay works a lot more like Apple Pay than Google’s last attempt.

That’s a good thing. Google Wallet required you to wake your phone, open the Wallet app, and enter a pin number if you decided to protect the app with a passcode, all before waving your phone near the payment terminal. That’s a lot of work.

Accessible Apple: Happy Belated 10th Birthday...

"We knew we could do a great job on this, and develop something that our customers would expect for the Mac platform." This quote from Mike Shebanek, who was a Product Manager at Apple back in 2004, captures the thought process that went into developing VoiceOver, Apple's built-in Screen Access Technology. Apple's inclusion of VoiceOver reflects the company's commitment to ensuring every one of its users can access its products, regardless of their accessibility needs.

As a long-time user of the Mac and someone who now depends on Screen Access Technology, I can speak first-hand to VoiceOver's effectiveness. The software has become the primary way I access all of my daily computing tasks.

Another app called Photos

The first is Google Photos, a free app that was described as Gmail for your photo collection. That is, you get unlimited free storage, and the app has machine learning and image recognition technology to help you find the photos you’re looking for, even if you didn’t meticulously tag and sort them yourself.

Cardboard is no longer just for Android, either; the company also announced that the Cardboard SDK for creating VR apps would be made available for iOS, and you'll be able to use your iPhone as a VR headset, too.

Google also launched a similar low-tech/self-build solution for creating VR videos, called Jump. There are three parts: a rig for capturing 3D video, software for combining multiple videos into a single VR world, and a player to actually use the video.

Apple officially confirmed that the new 15-inch MacBook Pro can support a 4K display at a full resolution of 4096×2160 at 60Hz and is also the first to support 5K displays.

The support for higher resolutions appears to be related to the switch to AMD graphics in the new machine. Apple’s new 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro (mid-2015) comes with an AMD Radeon R9 M370X that is reportedly up to 80 percent faster than previous generations.

Among the 14 models, CarPlay and Android Auto will be supported on all vehicles with 7-inch or 8-inch MyLink screens. CarPlay support will be available as all of these new models hit the dealerships, while Android Auto...

News: Apple to unveil rewards system for Apple Pay

Apple is preparing to unveil a new rewards program tied to Apple Pay, according a new report by The New York Times. According to sources familiar with Apple Pay, the service could be unveiled as early as next month — likely at WWDC — and would provide perks to consumers who make purchases through the Apple Pay service. No further details are available, and it’s unclear whether these rewards would be tied to specific bank and card issuers…

Rumor: Apple to launch Apple Pay rewards/incentive...

Because commerce is nothing without rewards and incentive programs.

Rumor has it that Apple is set to announce a rewards program next month that will give perks to customers using Apple Pay, a feature that could escalate the stakes in what appears to be a coming battle with Google’s competing Android Pay service.

Sources have indicated that Apple will announce its Apple Pay rewards program in June, potentially at the upcoming Worldwide Developers Conference.

The sources have stated that Apple will offer Apple Pay customers perks in exchange for using the service, which is currently hardware-limited to iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and Apple Watch.

Pebble Time Ships, Apple Watch Comparisons Coming...

Pebble Time is now shipping, which means we're about to see head-to-head comparisons with Apple Watch. Pebble introduced its newest smartwatch with a Kickstarter campaign earlier this year that was fully funded in only 20 minutes. With Apple Watch shipping, too, the smartwatch market is heating up.

The Mac Observer Spin: Pebble Time offers built-in accessory support, goes a week between recharging, and comes with a lower price than Apple Watch. Now we get to see if that's enough to compete with Apple.

Todoist comes to Apple Watch

After months of careful development, Todoist is now ready for Apple Watch.

I appreciate the work that's been happening at Todoist. Early this year, the company began work on Todoist for the Apple Watch. Without a Watch in hand, however, the developers knew they knew proper testing was impossible. So they decided to wait:

"For our entire team, an excellent user experience is paramount to everything else, and this is not something that we’re willing to sacrifice. When we build our apps, we take great care to make sure each detail is both meaningfully and dutifully designed. Todoist for Apple Watch is not an exception – only when we have been able to thoroughly test the app on the device will we release it to our community."

Today, the patience and dedication has paid off. Todosit 10.1, with support for Apple...

Watch Pad & Quill transform a hunk of wood into...

To design a charging stand for the timepiece of the future, Brian Holmes looked to the past.

A few years ago, his grandmother gave him an old pocket watch that had once belonged to his long-deceased grandfather. He needed a way to show off the timepiece, and vaguely remembered seeing elegant, collapsible wooden stands made for this purpose.

Scouring the Internet, he found and snapped up a couple of these stands, both about a century old yet in decent condition. One of them turned out to be a reasonably good fit for his grandfather’s pocket watch.

Holmes runs Pad & Quill, a Minneapolis-based Apple accessory maker that is best known for iPhone and iPad cases consisting of wooden frames wrapped in fine book-like bindings. But the Apple Watch required a very different kind of accessory—and those...

On Jony Ive’s Promotion to Chief Design Officer

Ben Thompson’s take, published yesterday, makes several interesting points. He astutely observes that Ive’s newly-promoted lieutenants, Alan Dye (UI design) and Richard Howarth (industrial design), both were featured prominently in recent feature articles granting access to Apple executives:

The message again, is clear: when Ive took over software, Dye
was there
.

Indeed, taken as a whole, this entire episode is a masterful
display of public relations: plant the seeds of this story in two
articles — ostensibly about the Watch — that provide
unprecedented access to Apple broadly and Apple’s design team in
particular, and happen to highlight two designers in particular,
neither of whom had any public profile to date (kind of — as John

Man gets $120 ticket for changing music with his...

A driver in Quebec, Canada claims he was fined $120 and given four points on his driving record for changing music on his Apple Watch while driving. While the driver disputes that this is not against the law (at least in Canada), many regions of the United States are not so keen on Apple Watch usage while driving. For example, the following definitions of devices that cannot be used on the road in New York clearly match the Apple Watch: “broadband personal communication device”, “two-way messaging device”, “portable computing device”, “or any other electronic device when used to input, write, send, receive, or read text for present or future communication.” Because the Apple Watch falls under those definitions, usage of the device is likely subject to the same...

GM To Offer Apple CarPlay and Android Auto API In...

Lucas123 writes: GM today announced it will offer Apple CarPlay and Android Auto mirroring APIs on 14 of its 2016 vehicles. GM's announcement follows one earlier this week by Hyundai, which said it would offer Android Auto in its Sonata Sedan this year. Some of GM's Chevrolet vehicles — such as the Malibu, Camaro and Silverado truck — use a seven-inch MyLink infotainment system; those systems will be compatible with both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay in the beginning of 2016. Those models offering the smartphone mirroring apps include the all-new 2016 Cruze compact, which will debut on June 24. Other GM vehicles use an eight-inch version of MyLink that will only be compatible with Apple CarPlay at the beginning of the new model year. While development and testing is not yet complete, Android Auto compatibility may be available on the eight-inch version of MyLink later in the 2016 model year, GM said.

With its bloodless battles of attrition between squads of human-squid chimeras, twitch-shooter Splatoon oozes classic Nintendo charm that has enamored many early reviewers. Splatoon is the first new intellectual property Nintendo has released in years. It takes a crack at the competitive shooter genre, opting to go the route of a third-person, rather than first-person perspective. Instead of the visceral shock of bullet wounds, blood, and the wails of the wounded, Splatoon supplies brightly colored ink to wield in chaotic matches.

“Apple TV is trying to change the universe,” Moonves said, mentioning how Apple could sell smaller packages for cheaper than a cable subscription—a dream scenario for many cord-cutters.
