Antitrust monitor again bemoans Apple's lack of...

In a report to a New York district court published on Tuesday, Michael Bromwich, Apple's court-appointed antitrust monitor, said the company has made "substantial progress" in its compliance program, but still exhibits an unwillingness to cooperate with his investigation.

Interestingly, the artists commented that the device's screen surface has "tooth," or textured roughness, to augment drawing feel.

Microsoft's retail store chain flounders in...

Nearly six years have passed since Microsoft began opening retail outlets patterned after Apple's blockbuster retail locations. However, the now 116 Microsoft Stores are still a pale imitation to Apple's own retail network of 460 locations, often featuring more employees than customers as the firm's products have failed to excite and attract buyers.

Microsoft Throws the Book at Apple

Microsoft on Tuesday held an event in New York City where it unveiled a laptop, a tablet, three Lumia smartphones and a fitness band -- all running Windows 10 -- along with a slew of other products. It also announced new apps for Windows 10, including Box, Facebook, Instagram, Flipagram, Candy Crush Soda Saga and Uber. All of the apps will be available on the new devices. "Microsoft's now working to showcase that it's building out its ecosystem based on Windows 10," said Susan Schreiner, an analyst at C4 Trends.

Porsche picks CarPlay for new 2017 911 Carrera/...

Yeah, this is a 2016 model. But it's the Lava Orange color I want. Thank you.

The latest generation of Porsche's iconic 911 Carrera and Carrera S will be supporting only one infotainment system -- Apple's CarPlay. The carmaker could have done what so many other manufacturers are doing, giving auto buyers a choice between CarPlay and Google's Android Auto. But Porsche decided against it, according to Motor Trend, because of Google's tendency to gather too much data for nefarious uses.

Google wants any car manufacturer that uses Android Auto to agree to hand over information from the onboard diagnostic unit (AKA OBD2) relating to vehicle speed, throttle position, coolant and oil temperature, engine RPM and more. CarPlay only wants to know if a vehicle is in motion. 

Motor Trend wonders if Google is using that data collection to grab intelligence...

Notable apps and app updates for October 6, 2015

On a regular basis, Apple World Today posts a short list of notable new apps or app updates that have been released. They may not necessarily be new, but they're popular and deserve mention. Here are today's picks for iOS and Mac OS X:

Tip of the Day: Going back to a four-digit passcode...

One of the smaller security features touted by Apple in the iOS 9 update was the move to requiring six-digit passcodes, rather than the default four-digit option that’s been around since the iPhone first debuted. While complex alphanumeric passwords have been available in iOS for years, most users found them to be too much trouble, so Apple reasoned that going from a four to a six-digit passcode was a more sensible compromise for improving security,…

Slackel Linux: Not Your Father's Slackware

Slackel is a Linux distro a step away from the mainstream Debian-based Linux OS line. It is based on Slackware and Salix. Users already familiar with that lineage are more inclined to like Slackel. Slackel offers a few advantages not usually found with the Slackware Linux lineup. Slackel is fully compatible with Slackware and Salix. The main difference is that it includes the current version of Slackware and the latest version of KDE in the repository. That gives Slackel a better reach for adding software.

Native Union Apple Watch Charging Dock Goes Both Ways

Report: Apple will reveal a 4K 21.5-inch iMac next...

As if new iPhones, new iPads, and a new Apple TV weren’t enough, Apple may unveil even more hardware upgrades this fall. This time, it’s the iMac that’s allegedly getting an upgrade.

According to 9to5Mac, Apple will announce a new 21.5-inch iMac with 4K Retina display next week, and these new Macs could be in stores as early as Tuesday, October 13. 9to5Mac originally reported that these 4K iMacs would be announced in conjunction with the launch of OS X El Capitan.

Design-wise, these new models will be very similar to the non-4K iMacs, but will boast a 4096x2304 screen resolution. This exact screen resolution was first spotted in El Capitan Developer...

Antitrust monitor: Apple “its own worst enemy”

“In this respect, Apple has been its own worst enemy,” he said. “This lack of cooperation has cast an unnecessary shadow over meaningful progress in developing a comprehensive and effective antitrust compliance program.”

Perhaps Apple, like many of us, are still wondering how the hell Amazon gets away with so much, without any punishment.

With September’s iPhone release in the rearview and the iPad Pro set for an early November launch, Apple is ready to add some new Mac hardware into its fall product line. Apple is currently planning to announce new 21.5-inch iMacs with 4K screens next week, according to multiple reliable sources. While the new computers are likely ready to begin showing up in stores as soon as Tuesday, October 13th, Apple will ramp up larger quantities for November, according to the sources, so finding one early on may be a slight challenge.

The new 4K iMacs will physically look like the current non-4K version, so the highlights of the upgrade will be the new 4096 x 2304 screen and much faster...

Apple fixes app slicing issue with iOS 9.0.2 update...

Well, there’s good news if you’re developing iOS apps.

Apple has just announced that its app slicing issue has been fixed. This will allow for device-specific versions of apps to be delivered when downloaded by users running iOS 9.0.2 or later.

For those of you unfamiliar with app slicing, this is a delivery method that allows for the optimal installation of an iOS or watchOS app to be delivered to a user’s particular device, with minimal footprint. This optimization, called app thinning, lets developers create apps that use the most device features, occupy minimum disk space, and accommodate future updates that...

The good news is that Microsoft has acknowledged the massive crashes between Office for Mac 2016 and the newly-released OS X 10.11 El Capitan.

The bad news is that they don’t have an estimated timeline for a fix.

In an emailed statement, a Microsoft spokeswoman said the company is looking into the problem.

“We know that some users may be experiencing issues with Office 2016 for Mac running on El Capitan,” the statement read. “We are actively investigating the matter with Apple. Until there is a fix, we recommend people install the latest updates to Office 2016 for Mac using Microsoft AutoUpdate.”

Why is there no News app for El Capitan?

iOS 9 added a News app (think of it as Apple's version of Flipbook and Zite). A companion app for Mac OS X El Capitan would seem like a natural, but it's nowhere to be found. 

In iOS 9, News compiles articles you've expressed interest in from several sites.  Stories are pulled from a range of sources, from top news organizations to indie publications. Stories are chosen for you based on what you like to read. Apple says that the more you use News, the better it gets at picking out just what you’ll want to see. 

You can share articles with others and save them to read later. Thanks to iCloud, stories are saved on all your iOS devices, so you can start reading something on your iPhone and pick it up later on your iPad. It would be nice to also be able to do this with a Mac.

You can set up News to provide a continuously updated feed of stories that are collected based on your likes and...

iPhone 6s vs. MMA Contender Luke Rockhold (Video)

I found this highly entertaining. SquareTrade pitted Apple's flagship iPhones against #1 MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) contender Luke Rockhold. Spoiler alert, an iPhone can't take a roundhouse kick from a martial arts expert, especially not when it hits a wall. Shocker that, of course, but it's a crap ton of fun to watch. What was more interesting was the strength test, where Mr. Rockhold broke iPhone 6/6 Plus/6s/6s Plus. Turns out iPhone 6s Plus is way stronger than the other devices. This is in keeping with SquareTrade's more formal testing methods that found iPhone 6s and 6s Plus were both stronger than last year's devices. Anyhoo, let's have some fun:

Monday, October 5, marks the fourth year anniversary of Steve Jobs’ death. He would’ve been 60 this year.

To commemorate Jobs’ life and legacy, several Apple executives, including Apple CEO Tim Cook, penned personal remembrances that were posted on AppleWeb, Cupertino’s internal news website.

“He was unselfish in the face of his own mortality,” wrote Cook, recalling his last days with the iconic Apple co-founder. Cook shared how he had offered Jobs a portion of own liver for a donor liver transplant, but Jobs refused.

“Even when his outlook was bleak and he had every right to accept help, he refused, rather than put a friend’s health at risk,” Cook continued. “He put his compassion for me above his own needs, and I will never forget it.”

When you delete files from a hard disk, the storage space that the files occupied is available for use. However, the deleted files can still be recovered using data-recovery software.

If you've installed Mac OS X El Capitan, you may have discovered that the Secure Empty Trash feature is missing and it doesn't seem as if you can get it back.

A support page on the security content of El Capitan says: "An issue existed in guaranteeing secure deletion of Trash files on some systems, such as those with flash storage. This issue was addressed by removing the Secure Empty Trash option."

Previously, if you wanted to delete files that contain sensitive information, you could use Secure Empty Trash. Files deleted in that way were completely overwritten by meaningless data.

Dasvibes Digital has announced Cheerio 1.0. The US$0.99 app removes advertising, trackers, and other elements from web pages when using Safari on your iPhone or iPad.

DynamoLogic Solutions has released Scanify 1.0. It's a free shopping companion. Scanify scans, parses and generates QR and Barcodes. The app deciphers the linear and two-dimensional barcodes including QR Codes, Aztec Codes and Data Matrix Codes.

Want to make Apple Watch bands? Official band lugs...

It didn't take long for a lot of accessory manufacturers to jump on the Apple Watch bandwagon with everything from cheap silicone band knockoffs to more pricy and stylish leather straps. But now, a third-party distributor -- Avnet -- is selling Apple authorized "Made for Apple Watch" lugs that manufacturers can (and probably should) use for their Watch bands.

All of the lugs are made of stainless steel, have the phrase "Made for Apple Watch" etched onto them, and require a special pentalobe screwdriver ($12.65 each) to assemble. They're available in 38 and 42mm versions in lots of either 25 or 200 -- 25 38mm lugs will cost you $278.75 if you wish to go into the band manufacturing business, or up to $1866 for 200 of the 45mm lugs.

There are...

New iOS malware mainly affects users in China

Over the weekend, security site Palo Alto Networks reported a new iOS malware that's can infect non-jailbroken Apple devices using enterprise certificates and private APIs[application programming interfaces]. It's apparently infected at least 100 Apple App Store apps.

“Although the specific behaviors of this malware are fairly unique, it still is no more able to install itself invisibly than any other iOS malware to date,” says Mac security expert, Thomas Reed, director of Mac Offerings at Malwarebytes, provider of an user-installed anti-malware solution. “It's signed with an enterprise provisioning profile, so the user must accept its installation. Two aspects of this are concerning. One is the difficulty of removing the malware. I'd recommend a full factory reset of the phone to be 100% sure everything is wiped."

Apple resolves issue that delayed iOS 9 App Thinning...

Apple CEO Tim Cook at WWDC 2015

After initially holding back a new iOS 9 feature called App Thinning (or App Slicing) that allows developers to ship smaller apps to customers and download additional content as needed, Apple now says it has resolved the issue that caused the delay. Starting with the recently released iOS 9.0.2, users will have access to updated apps that take advantage of App Thinning. Apple also updated developers on a Game Center-related change and rolled out an improved way for finding content from Apple’s developer sessions.Apple first revealed that App...

Apple Watch Hermès now on sale in 10 different styles

You can now go out and buy an Apple Watch Hermès, but you might want to bring your French dictionary.

First announced in September during Apple’s big iPhone 6s event, the Apple Watch Hermès collection is available now, but only in select Apple Stores and Hermès store locations in San Francisco, New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Toronto, as well as in several cities in Europe and Asia.

The special Hermès-branded stainless steel Watch comes in three styles and five fancy French colors, which you can combine to get ten different looks. The price of an Apple Watch Hermès ranges from $1,100 to $1,500, depending on the size of the case and the style of the band.

Review: Just Mobile Quattro Folio for iPhone 6s

Just Mobile's Quattro Folio ($45) is a leather folio case for iPhone 6s — while Just Mobile notes that the case will fit both iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s, it's being marketed as a 6s case on the company's website. Like many folio cases, Quattro Folio doesn't offer button coverage. Unfortunately, Quattro doesn't offer much coverage, period, leaving all corners of the phone and nearly the entire left side exposed when the iPhone 6s' screen is in use. The folio cover slot is designed for business cards, but we found it will accommodate two credit cards. The case also doubles as a landscape viewing stand.{/exp:char_limit}

After announcing an official program for accessory makers interested in making Apple Watch bands back in May, Apple has now delivered on its promise of providing Apple-made watch lugs that third-party manufacturers can use to make straps. That’s the first sign that official third-party watch bands will soon be hitting the market through Apple’s Made for iPhone program (MFi). Companies enrolled in the MFi program can now order the parts (pictured above) through Apple’s supplier (via MR)....

Apple purchases VocalIQ, may use APIs to boost Siri...

Add this to the other cool things Apple has bought over the years and may or may not do something with.

Apple has apparently purchased VocalIQ, a startup located in the UK that has “developed a self-learning dialogue API built on 10 years of natural language research, belief tracking, decision making, and message generation.”

Albeit no one has said how Apple plans to use VocalIQ’s assets, it’s thought that VocalIQ’s API can help improve Siri. It’s also thought that Apple could use the technology for its upcoming car project, as VocalIQ specialized in in-car applications among other things, as the company has collaborated with General Motors in the past. .

Second-generation Philips Hue Bridge supports...

One of the first home automation products to make it into Apple Stores was Philips Hue lighting. App-controlled, Philips Hue showcased many of the promises of home automation, while also pointing out the issues inherent in a market without standards. Apple hopes to get home automation device manufacturers marching in sync towards a Siri-controlled future through its HomeKit framework, and today Philips helped out by introducing the second-generation Hue Bridge (US$59.99).

The Bridge is compatible with both HomeKit and Siri, and works with other connected home platforms as well. Philips Lighting CEO Eric Rondolat noted that "Lighting is the most accessible aspect of the connected home, and as the lighting expert for the Internet of Things we are taking connected lighting to the next phase. By integrating Philips Hue with Apple HomeKit, we are broadening people's experience of light beyond what has...

Matt Gemmell on ad blocking

Matt is in a unique position to write about this debate:

I’m on both sides of this debate.

Let’s get the obvious argument out of the way: if you block ads, you’re depriving sites of revenue they presumably need in order to continue running, and if too many people do that, those sites are likely to go away. The reality is more complicated, but the argument is essentially sound – all other things being equal, and unchanged.

Digital or physical books

Craig Mod on his reading habits:

But in the past two years, something unexpected happened: I lost the faith. Gradually at first and then undeniably, I stopped buying digital books. I realised this only a few months ago, when taking stock of my library, both digital and physical. Physical books – most of all, works of literary fiction – I continue to acquire voraciously. I split my time between New York and Tokyo, and know that with each New York trip I’ll pick up a dozen or more volumes from bookstores or friends.

First look: Using Apple’s new Audio Unit plug-ins in...

With iOS 9 released late last month, Apple introduced a full-fledged audio plug-in framework for the first time on its mobile devices, allowing iPhone and iPad apps to implement support for third-party audio plug-ins just like on a Mac.

In fact, the audio plugin framework comes in the form of Audio Unit version 3, an updated version of the file type Apple has long used on the Mac for audio plug-ins in professional-class apps like Logic Pro.

Now that iOS 9 is available to all, we took the feature for a test drive using a couple of the very first apps to update with support...

Storm Apple Watch companion app: A great reason to...

Weather nerds unite! There's now a compelling reason to have not only your own weather station (you do have one, don't you?), but an Apple Watch as well. Weather Underground's Storm app now has an Apple Watch companion you can use to see conditions at your station or one nearby with a few taps. That's a screenshot of the Storm app from my Watch.

Of course, getting your own weather station can be even more expensive than buying an Apple Watch. The Internet-attached station I have is a Rainwise MK-III package (image below) that retails for US$1268, or even more for a long range version that allows the station sensors to be further away from your Internet connection.

Review: Chromecast Audio brings new life to dated...

I’m an Apple guy. I have enough Apple hardware around my house to serve as a mini-museum and I use Apple’s software and services every single day. But when Google makes something interesting like Chromecast Audio, I can’t help but want to try out the new toy.

Sold for just $35 (Google Store, Best Buy), Chromecast Audio lets you stream audio over the Internet from services like Spotify and NPR to old speakers. This varies from Apple’s AirPlay in that audio streams directly to the Chromecast Audio rather than from device to device, using your iPhone or iPad only as the remote. In practice, Chromecast Audio is most similar to Sonos, but with Google’s accessory selling at a much lower, irresistible price as it relies on your...

Review: X-Doria Defense Lux for iPhone 6s/6

X-Doria's Defense Lux ($60) case for iPhone 6s/6 is a more premium version of the "bumper around a case" option that we've seen more of recently. In X-Doria's edition, a rubber and polycarbonate case is bolstered by an aluminum outer frame. The hinged frame locks onto an iPhone 6 or 6s — it barely stretches around the iPhone 6s' slightly larger body. Defense Lux has a soft, slightly puffy backing. Button coverage is present for the sleep/wake button and volume controls. The case comes in four different colors; we received the "black carbon" option.{/exp:char_limit}

Research group: Apple Pay will grow slowly for the...

Researcher Aite Group says that Apple Pay, which marks its one-year anniversary this month, has failed to catch on with consumers, accounting for only one percent of all retail transactions in the U.S., reports Bloomberg Business

The service has reportedly suffered from a lack of promotion and limited number of terminals available in stores. Plus Apple Pay is only available on newer iPhones.

“People don’t know why it is they’d use Apple Pay,” Jared Schrieber, CEO of InfoScout, a shopper-research firm, told Bloomberg Business. “They are satisfied with the current methods and they don’t know how Apple Pay works.”

More than 75 percent of iPhone 6 and 6 Plus users hadn’t tried the service as of April, according to...

Apple Pay 1 year in: Slow to grow, but 'off to...

Tech companies have been trying to make mobile payments happen for years, and when Apple entered the space last October with Apple Pay, it seemed like paying for things with your phone might actually become a daily occurrence.

But Apple Pay adoption is still slow going a year after its launch, according to new reports. The service is barely a blip on the retail radar, accounting for about 1 percent of total transactions in the U.S., according to research firm Aite Group.

The Wall Street Journal dug up numbers from various retail chains and analysts that seem to back up that figure: At Panera, Apple Pay usage is in the “low single digits,” while Firehouse Subs says the service accounts for 2 percent of all transactions. (Panera did say that...

News: Apple Pay transaction numbers still low overall

A year after Apple Pay’s launch, the digital payment system is only accounting for 1 percent of U.S. retail transactions, Bloomberg reports. Apple Pay has suffered from a lack of promotion and limited support from retailers, but at Panera Bread — an early adopter of the new pay format — the percentage of Apple Pay transactions is in the low single digits. Even within Panera’s iOS app that lets users order from their iPhone, Apple Pay…

News: Apple releases Apple Watch Hermès collection

After its announcement weeks ago, Apple has officially launched the Apple Watch Hermès, with prices starting at $1,100. The watch sports three leather band options and a custom face designed by Apple using fonts that mimic the classic Hermès style. The classic Single Tour band is available in both 38mm and 42mm sizes in brown and black. The Double Tour band — which wraps around the wrist twice — is only available in 38mm, but also comes in red…

Apple TV aims open its universal search to all apps

When the new Apple TV launches later this month, its universal search features will only work with a select number of apps. But it’s not going to stay that way forever.

Apple CEO Tim Cook recently told BuzzFeed that Apple plans to offer an API for universal search, so that any app can feed into the results. “I think that many, many people will want to be in that search. And that’s great for users,” Cook said.

At launch, Siri’s search results will come from five streaming services: iTunes, HBO, Hulu, Netflix, and Showtime. That’s a fairly short list, and one that leaves out some major sources such as YouTube, Crackle, Watch ABC, and PBS.

The feature will support iTunes, Hulu, Netflix, HBO and Showtime when the new Apple TV ships this month, but Apple CEO Tim Cook said the company is opening its API so other sources can make…

Well, this is a giant mess.

Following the release of Apple’s new OS X 10.11 El Capitan on Wednesday, a number of users have complained of crashes with Office 2016 and the new operating system.

“This is beyond the Pale. We basically can’t use Office on our computers,” wrote one user on the longest thread related to the crash problem.

Users have complained of apparently random crashes since the update, the discussion thread regarding the issues currently running for more than 140 pages.

Where Office 2016 was shipped in early July, the complaints discussion thread has exploded since the release of OS X 10.11 El Capitan...

On October 9, the movie "Steve Jobs" -- directed by Danny Boyle and scripted by Aaron Sorkin from the biography by Walter Isaacson -- opens at theaters nationwide. With a crop of films about the Apple co-founder having been released over the past four years since Jobs' death, many have felt that the movies tend to focus on the negatives of the man rather than what he accomplished in his lifetime. Sadly, it appears that even his close friends and family can't agree on whether they like or hate the upcoming movie.

First, the Wall Street Journal is reporting that Jobs' widow, Laurene Powell Jobs, tried to block the production of the movie repeatedly, saying that the movie and others focus on Jobs as being...

Apple leases additional office space, expands to...

The Apple expansion continues.

In recent weeks, it’s been discovered that Apple has leased another major project in Sunnyvale — a two-building, 215,000-square foot office park that’s wrapping up construction at North Mathilda Ave. and W. Maude Ave. The project, from Christensen Holdings, is in a business district that’s already thick with Apple outposts.

This is not a completely new change, as the Mathilda Tech Center in Sunnyvale is located in a thick of office buildings already occupied by Apple.

It’s expected that Apple will continue to lease buildings in this segment of Sunnyvale, known as “Peery Park”.

Also, Apple is likely to...
