Report: FBI actually paid less than $1 million for...

In a new report, Reuters this evening is claiming that the FBI paid less than $1 million for the tool it used to unlock the San Bernardino gunman’s iPhone 5c. Apple, of course, denied to create a tool to do so, so the FBI went through a third-party to gain access. The report, citing “several U.S. government sources,” further claims that the technique can be used on any iPhone 5c running iOS 9.

Carl Icahn Isn’t Wrong about Apple in China

Carl Icahn told CNBC Thursday that he sold his considerable stake in Apple Inc.—some 0.8 percent of shares at his height—on concerns about Apple's business in China, though it might be more accurate to characterize it as concerns that China's government could have a deleterious affect on Apple's business in that market. Bryan Chaffin isn't always a fan of Mr. Icahn's, but in this instance, the mogul isn't wrong.

House Passes Email Search Warrant Bill

The U.S. House of Representatives unanimously passed a bill requiring a search warrant when law enforcement wants to access email and documents stored in cloud services such as Dropbox and iCloud. The Senate still needs to pass the bill before it becomes law, which seems a little weird considering we have this thing called the 4th Amendment in the Constitution. I'll just share a link to the Bill of Rights in case any of our Senators need a refresher.

A note from Apple says “we encourage developers to use the Apple Music API to provide a superior user experience by integrating these features in your app.”

Ten One Designs Timeframe: A protective charging...

Apple devices never have a shortage of accessories, and one year after the debut of the Apple Watch, we're seeing a flood of unique products for the smartwatch. One of those devices is the $24.95 Timeframe (available in 38mm and 42 mm versions, affiliate links), a charging stand unlike any other we've seen for the Watch so far.

Design

Most Apple Watch charging stands are a variation on a common theme -- something elevated (or flat) that a Watch owner strings his or her charging cable through, with a place to put that magnetic charging puck. 

With the elevated models, there's an issue -- if there's no way to tighten the wristband, the Watch can be knocked off by motion or a curious cat. The flat models, including...

iTunes Turns 13 Today -- Continues To Be 'Awful...

An anonymous reader points us to a link on Quartz: On April 28, 2003, Apple started up a revolution. Enter the iTunes Music Store, unveiled with a proud flourish by a beaming Steve Jobs. It was a digital jukebox, a music distribution game-changer, a record store to end all record stores -- and it did, in fact, kill off a great number of those. [...] For 13 years -- 15 if you count the two years the program was just a file-storing service -- users have grumbled loudly about iTunes' unwieldy interface, its bloated features, its inability to simply get better. [...] Instead of trying to streamline the service over the years, Apple has opted to stuff an overwhelming number of new features -- movies, television shows, podcasts, mobile apps, and most recently, Apple Music -- into it.The report mentions the following issues with iTunes: space-sucking size, slowness, ugliness, bloatware, lack of online or social integration, a wonky back-end, music isn't even its priority.

Review: ecobee3 HomeKit-enabled smart Wi-Fi...

While the now-Google-owned Nest brought the idea of smart home thermostats into the mainstream consciousness, it is by no means the only player in the game — nor was it even the first by a long shot. In fact, the race began back in 2008, when a small startup named ecobee debuted the world's first Wi-Fi connected smart thermostat. Hence, it's probably only fitting that the company's ecobee3 was the first thermostat to join the club when Apple's HomeKit home automation framework came online. In addition to providing control via HomeKit, ecobee3 has more than a few of its own unique capabilities to recommend it, and like other HomeKit devices we've taken a look at recently, was an existing product that added HomeKit capabilities, rather than a new product released specifically for HomeKit. {/exp:char_limit}

Ten years of Google Translate

Ten years ago, we launched Google Translate. Our goal was to break language barriers and to make the world more accessible. Since then we’ve grown from supporting two languages to 103, and from hundreds of users to hundreds of millions. And just like anyone’s first 10 years, we’ve learned to see and understand, talk, listen, have a conversation, write, and lean on friends for help.

I think we’ve all used Google Translate over the years.

FBI not submitting San Bernadino iPhone hack for...

The FBI is keeping the San Bernadino iPhone hack technique to itself for the time being.

A recent report has stated that the FBI will not be submitting the exploit used to break into the iPhone 5c of San Bernardino shooter Syed Rizwan Farook to a review process that could clear it for sharing with outside parties.

The FBI, which used a third party to unlock the iPhone, apparently didn’t acquire the rights to the technical details used in the hack, according to Amy Hess, the FBI’s executive assistant director for science and technology. As a result, Hess said the agency doesn’t “have enough technical information about any vulnerability” that could be considered for release.

On Wednesday, FBI director James Comey said that the agency was still deciding whether it...

It's a wearable band that can vibrate, beep, or administer an electric shock to jolt you awake. You might elect to use a combination of two or three elements, with the shock always saved for last.

Strategy Analytics: Apple Watch slips to 52% global...

According to the latest research from Strategy Analytics, global smartwatch shipments grew 223% annually to reach 4.2 million units in the first quarter of 2016 (Q1 2016). Apple captured 52% global smartwatch marketshare, dipping from 63% share in the prior quarter.

 "Global smartwatch shipments grew a healthy 223% annually from 1.3 million units in Q1 2015 to 4.2 million in Q1 2016,” says Rajeev Nair, senior analyst at Strategy Analytics. “Global smartwatch growth is being driven by consumer demand for Apple, Android Wear and Tizen models across North America, Western Europe and Asia. On a sequential basis, global smartwatch shipments fell 48%from 8.1 million in Q4 2015 to 4.2 million in Q1 2016, due to seasonality trends."

Neil Mawston, executive director at Strategy Analytics, adds: "We estimate Apple Watch shipped 2.2 million units and captured 52 percent smartwatch marketshare worldwide in Q1 2016,...

A report back in February that Apple would be allowed to open retail stores in India has been corroborated by India’s Economic Times. India normally doesn’t allow single-brand retail stores unless at least 30% of their products are made within the country, but Apple is reportedly set to be granted an exemption on the grounds that its products are ‘cutting-edge technology.’

A government panel has recommended exempting Apple from mandatory local sourcing norms, a move which would pave the way for Apple to open single-brand retail stores in the country. “The committee has found that the company’s products are cutting edge technology and state-of-the-art. It has recommended to exempt them from the local sourcing norms,”...

Apple isn’t the only smartphone manufacturer seeing falling sales. New figures from Strategy Analytics show what the global smartphone market saw its first-ever year-on-year drop on sales, down 3%.

Linda Sui, Director at Strategy Analytics, said, “Global smartphone shipments fell 3 percent annually from 345.0 million units in Q1 2015 to 334.6 million in Q1 2016. It is the first time ever since the modern smartphone market began in 1996 that global shipments have shrunk on an annualized basis. Smartphone growth is slowing due to increasing penetration maturity in major markets like China and consumer caution about the future of the world economy.”

Apple’s fall was of course far more dramatic, iPhone sales down 18% year-on-year, with CEO Tim Cook blaming economic ‘headwinds’ – and Strategy Analytics’...

Intel Wants To Eliminate The Headphone Jack And...

An anonymous reader writes: With rumors circulating about how Apple may do away with the 3.5 mm headphone jack on its upcoming iPhone 7, Intel has shared a similar desire, citing "industry singling a strong desire to move from analog to digital." Intel believes USB-C is the future audio jack. They believe USB-C has more potential than the 3.5mm audio jack as it allows users to add additional smart features to headphones in the future. For instance, a future pair of headphones could monitor one's pulse or inner-ear temperature for fitness tracking, something that could only be possible if the headphones were connected to a smartphone via a USB-C cable. What's also worth mentioning [quoted from 9to5Mac]: USB-C already supports analog audio transfer through sideband pins simplifying the engineering steps necessary to swap 3.5mm with USB-C in device designs. In the second quarter, Intel should have a finalized USB-C standard for digital audio transfer. Intel does note that the...

Child Porn Suspect Jailed Indefinitely For Refusing...

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Ars Technica: A Philadelphia man suspected of possessing child pornography has been in jail for seven months and counting after being found in contempt of a court order demanding that he decrypt two password-protected hard drives. The suspect, a former Philadelphia Police Department sergeant, has not been charged with any child porn crimes. Instead, he remains indefinitely imprisoned in Philadelphia's Federal Detention Center for refusing to unlock two drives encrypted with Apple's FileVault software in a case that once again highlights the extent to which the authorities are going to crack encrypted devices. The man is to remain jailed "until such time that he fully complies" with the decryption order. The government successfully cited a 1789 law known as the All Writs Act to compel (PDF) the suspect to decrypt two hard drives it believes contain child pornography. The All Writs Act was the same law the Justice Department asserted in its...

Apple and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad...

Some much needed perspective on Apple’s first year-over-year quarterly sales drop since 2003, from Daisuke Wakabayashi for the WSJ:

Apple’s revenue and profit for the fiscal second quarter ended
March 26 both missed analysts’ expectations. The company also
projected that revenue in the current quarter would fall far short
of expectations.

Worth noting that Apple’s actual results were very nearly in line with the company’s own guidance for the quarter, given three months ago. (Revenue was within guidance, but gross margins were slightly low.) A year-over-year decline is never good news, and is a possible harbinger of a sustained decline, but these numbers, along with Apple’s guidance for the June quarter, ...

Earlier today, yet another report emerged claiming that Apple would launch an iPhone ‘Pro’ or iPhone 7 ‘Pro’ this fall. This report claimed that the device would be identical to the iPhone 6s Plus in terms of size, but would feature dual cameras on the back and Smart Connector support.

This isn’t the first time we’ve heard reports of Apple perhaps adding an additional model to its iPhone lineup, either. A separate report from last month claimed that the company was planning an iPhone 7 Pro with dual camera capabilities.

Pentagon to Open New Cyberfront in War Against ISIS


The Obama administration reportedly has authorized a new online campaign in its slow, grinding war against ISIS. The Pentagon's Cyber Command aims to get inside the heads of terrorist commanders to disrupt their military operations. The goal appears to be to sow mistrust and confusion among ISIS leaders by interfering with their ability to pay their soldiers, execute operational orders, recruit new fighters, and communicate with one other. The plan amounts to dropping cyberbombs on the enemy, said Deputy Secretary of Defense Robert O. Work.

Five recommended products Apple should make (and my...

Tom’s Guide‘s Mark Spoonauer has a list of products he thinks Apple should make. Here’s his list (and which ones Yours Truly would love to see):

A gaming Mac: Apple should create gaming-focused Macs. Apple would also be able to cater to buyers of virtual-reality headsets like the Oculus Rift and the HTC Vive if it made a gaming-focused Mac Pro desktop. My take: I think he’s right, although I think a gaming-focused iMac is just as feasible.

An “Echo killer.” The Echo in question is the Amazon Echo speaker. Spoonauer says that since Beats Audio is now under the Apple umbrella, the company should make a smart speaker of its own that will respond to your voice via Siri to answer questions, play music and even control smarthome gadgets through Apple's HomeKit protocol. My take: this, too, is a great idea.

In a conference call with analysts, Apple Chief Financial Officer Luca Maestri said the company has a “much broader portfolio” of internal initiatives and projects that includes more “in-house technology development” than it used to have.

Patent trollin’: Apple sued regarding multi-mode...

Another day, another lawsuit. As noted by Patently Apple, a company called Nova Intellectual Solutions of Texas has filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Apple using a Novatel Wireless patent that they've acquired. 

Nova Intellectual Solutions — regarded as a “patent troll” — claims Apple violated patent number 8,208,517 for “systems and methods for a multi-mode wireless modem.” Here’s the summary of the patent: “A multi-mode modem comprises a first device configured to communicate with a first communication system, a second device configured to communicate with a second communication system, a processor communicatively coupled the first and second devices, and a control function configured to place the device in one of the following communication modes: 1) communication with the first communication system;...

The Santa Clara County Sheriff's Office said on Wednesday afternoon that the death of a man inside Apple's Infinite Loop headquarters earlier in the day was an "isolated incident," and that no one else is at risk.

ANZ is the first Australian bank to support Apple Pay

Apple has expanded Apple Pay in Australia after ANZ (Australia and New Zealand Banking Group Limited) became the country's first bank to support the mobile payment service, reports Reuters.

The article adds that Apple has partnered with a bank widely seen as trailing its three bigger peers in digital technology, a situation ANZ's new Chief Executive Shayne Elliott has set out to change with Apple Pay, as well as by hiring Google's Australia managing director. The Cupertino, California-based company continues to speak with other Australian banks, hoping ANZ customers' experience will create demand among competitors. Jennifer Bailey, vice president of Apple Pay, told Reuters.

ANZ is the fourth largest bank by market capitalization in Australia, after the Commonwealth Bank, Westpac Banking Corp., and National...

iPhone flaw used by FBI fixed by Apple nine months...

The FBI informed Apple Inc of a vulnerability in its iPhone and Mac software on April 14, the first time it had told the company about a flaw in Apple products under a controversial White House process for sharing such information, the company told Reuters on Tuesday.

And

Though he declined to provide technical details, the executive said the problem had been fixed by the company nine months ago, with the release of iOS9 for phones and Mac OS C El Capitan.

Apple doesn’t plan to release an update for older operating systems.

Notable apps and app updates for April 27, 2016

On a regular basis, Apple World Today posts a 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.

John McAfee Invokes ‘Crazy Ones’ and Steve Jobs for...

John McAfee, founder of his self-titled antiviral software company (sold to Intel in 2010), launched a new commercial in support of his bid to be the presidential candidate for the Libertarian party. The spot quotes the "Here's to the Crazy Ones" wording used in Apple's Think Different campaign of 1997, and it uses the tagline "Vote Different." The spot also quotes "Stay hungry. Stay foolish." That's from the late Steve Jobs's commencement speech at Stanford University. In addition to borrowing from Apple, the spot highlights many tech icons (also like the Think Different campaign), including Steve Jobs—which is interesting. It's impossible to know if Mr. Jobs would have supported John McAfee's bid for president, but he was known to support Democrats—not Libertarians—when he made his political affiliations known. That said, it's human nature for people to claim important and great people in the wake of their death no matter the...

Self-driving vehicles could significantly reduce the severity and frequency of auto accidents, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation.

Opinion: Window on Apple Watch has closed, wait for...

Apple sent out an email blast this week marketing the Apple Watch as a Mother’s Day gift recommendation:

Help her do it all and look great, too. Whether she’s working or playing, Apple Watch is
the perfect Mother’s Day gift to help her stay connected and active throughout the day.

The email was fine as far as marketing messages go. It featured the message above plus a nice photograph of a woman wearing an Apple Watch Sport with a band color-matched to her jacket. “Celebrate her with a gift she’ll love” and “Finally, something that can keep up with her” cleverly nudged you into making Apple Watch the fashionable fitness tracker gift for the May 8th holiday.

But it also reminded me of a recent experience I had in an Apple Store and a realization about Apple Watch right now. Agree or disagree, I believe the window on buying the first-gen Apple Watch has closed, and in almost every situation potential customers should wait for Apple Watch 2.

Here’s the problem: Apple is ignoring the Mac

Apple sold 4.03 million Macs in the March quarter, a 9% decline from the same period in 2015. It was the second consecutive quarterly contraction for the personal computer line. The problem, according to Ezra Gottheil, an analyst with Technology Business Research, is that Apple is ignoring its Mac line-up. He’s right.

In an interview with Computerworld, Gottheil says that folks are waiting longer before to replace their personal computers, so “a new Mac has to be a whole lot better to take the step up [to a new system].”

Here’s where Apple has failed by largely ignoring the Mac, he adds. Gottheil cited the line’s lack of innovation on both hardware and the OS X operating system—and confusing customers with overlap between models, particularly the 12-inch MacBook and the MacBook Air. He criticized Apple’s refusal to add a touch-...

The MacFan report claims the new iPhone will actually measure in at 158.22mm tall…

Mac sales fall 12 percent in second-biggest downturn...

Apple yesterday said it sold 4 million Macs in the March quarter, a 12 percent decline from the same period the year before, and a larger contraction than for the personal computer business as a whole.

The year-over-year downturn in Mac sales was the second straight down quarter, and excepting a brutal 22 percent drop at the end of 2012, the largest since Apple introduced the iPhone in 2007.

Analysts at IDC and Gartner earlier this month pegged the continued contraction of the PC industry at 11.5 percent and 9.6 percent, respectively. Both also missed the actual Mac number for the quarter in their forecasts for Apple, overestimating by 11 percent to 13 percent: IDC had tapped shipments at 4.5 million, while Gartner said 4.6 million.

Google has released an Android TV remote app for iPhone and iPad, but don’t expect much from it.

Like the existing remote app for Android phones and tablets, the iOS version lets you tap on a virtual D-pad, swipe on a virtual touchpad, play/pause, hit the back button, hit the home screen, and conjure voice search. It also includes a keyboard for faster on-screen typing.

No, it’s not a particularly imaginative app, but in fairness, hardly any of the phone control apps for modern media players are. Apple TV? Virtual remote buttons on a touchscreen. Amazon Fire TV? Virtual remote buttons on a touchscreen. Roku fares better, letting you browse channels and new arrivals in...

Podcast 505: MacBook and Apple Watch backlash blues

The new MacBook is here, and it's been reviewed against its predecessor, the other portable Macs, and even the iPad Pro. Bottom line is that it's a great machine—and how cool is it that the choice between iPad and laptop has basically come down to personal preference—but it's still taking heat from people who didn't think Apple went far enough.

Safari’s update today includes changes in the way it works with JavaScript, CSS, web APIs, Web Inspector, rendering, security, networking and accessibility. iOS 9.3.2’s latest developer and public betas haven’t seen any major changes as it appears that this release is turning out to be more of a small bug fix release.

As if you didn’t have enough to worry about when it comes to being stalked on the Internet, now comes along a new hack to the social driving app Waze.

Researchers at the UC-Santa Barbara were able to demonstrate how to track an individual’s whereabouts by creating hundreds of different “ghost” drivers inside of the application.

As demonstrated to a reporter from Fusion, the team could then track her whereabouts using how Waze shows the location of other drivers and their username.

According to Reuters, the FBI told Apple about the security hole affecting iPhones and Macs on April 14. This was the first time the agency had shared information with Apple under the Vulnerability Equities Process, which was put in place by the White House in 2014.

Even with Apple reporting lower Q2 revenue during its earnings call yesterday, the call signaling ts first revenue decline since 2003, there’s still some bright spots.

The company has announced that its Apple Music subscriber base has jumped to 13 million, up from 11 million in February.

This compares to about 30 million subscribers to leading competitor Spotify, although the service obviously had a multi-year headstart over Apple’s streaming service, which launched last June.

Apple may be looking to its Internet Services business divisions to support future revenue growth, especially as sales of its iOS devices showed waning growth yesterday. The company has been relying on a mixture of exclusive deals and celebrity advertising to promote its streaming music...

India has prescribed that starting next year mobile phones in the country should have buttons that can be quickly used by women to alert the police and close relatives if they are in distress.

The measure is one of several responses by the Indian government to the growing problem of rape attacks on women in the country.

Pressing the panic button will alert “police & designated friends/relatives, for immediate response in case of distress or security related issues,” said Minister of Communications, Ravi Shankar Prasad, in a tweet late Tuesday.

Under the new rules that come into effect in January 2017, all feature phones will need to have a panic button configured to the numeric key 5 or 9 and all smartphones will have the panic button linked to three short presses of the on-off button, according to the country’s Department of Communications.

In lieu of making better food, the chain restaurant industry continues to embrace technology as the solution to its problems. The latest example is Pizza Hut, which is drawing comparisons to Uber as it updates its pizza delivery mechanisms.

According to Nation’s Restaurant News, Pizza Hut will now tell customers what time to expect their pizza even before they place an order, using algorithms that factor in the volume of orders and the location and availability of drivers. The company says this “Visible Promise Time” is a first for pizza chains (though I’ll note that my local pizza chain in Cincinnati, LaRosa’s, already provides similar estimates). Pizza Hut is also testing GPS location tracking for its delivery drivers so customers can find out exactly how close their pizza is, presumably through the Pizza Hut app...

Apple saw the first decline in its sales and profits in 13 years, triggering a selloff in the financial market that wiped out $43 billion of the company’s market value.

As recent as in quarter one of 2016, 68% of the company revenue came from the iPhone, while the iPad and Mac each commanded 9%. Currently, Apple is first and foremost a mobile phone provider, which in turn highlights the danger of overreliance on a single product for growth, according to Howard Yu is professor of strategic management and innovation at IMD, a Switzerland-based institution “focused on real-world executive development.”

Under Steve Jobs, Apple had a track record of cannibalizing its own products. In 2005, when the demand for the iPod mini remained huge, the iPad nano was launched, effectively destroying the revenue stream of an existing product. And while...
