Google Gets Rid Of App Launcher In Chrome 52,...

Google has finally removed App Launcher that it bundles with the Chrome browser for Windows and Mac with the release of Chrome v52. The Mac client, in addition, now embraces Google's Material Design approach, and comes with new icons and flatter and transparent interface. 9to5Mac documents more changes on Chrome for Mac and Windows: Besides a new flatter, sharper, and transparent design, Material is also a "huge engineering feat," especially for Chrome OS and Windows. Chrome is "now rendered fully programmatically including iconography, effectively removing the ~1200 png assets we were maintaining before," Google noted. "It also allows us to deliver a better rendering for a wide range of PPI configuration."

Baidu: Apple’s avenues in China COULD be down 20%

Apple revenues revenues in China could be down 20 percent in China in its quarterly earnings report, according to research by Baidu (the “Chinese Google”) as noted by CNBC. Of course, the key word in that sentence is “could.”

As part of its online suite of products Baidu offers mapping software and a search platform. It 70% to 80% marketshare in the Chinese search market and logs billions of location requests on Baidu Maps. Using these tools on Apple retail stores in mainland China, Baidu counted the volume of map queries of all the stores.

Baidu says that, in the last quarter of 2015, map query volumes were up 15.4 % year-on-year, which corresponded with a 14% rise in Apple's China revenue in that same period. However, in the first quarter of 2016, map queries declined 24.5% year-on-year, which was...

Battery cases are bulky. The new MagicMount PowerBank from Scosche gives you all of the same benefits— a portable battery pack attached to your iPhone for extra battery life— but does so in a form factor that aims to be more convenient than a battery case. With the MagicMount, the battery magnetically attaches to your device using a very slim magnet, so you can quickly remove it when no longer needed. And you can continue to use your device with a case of your choice or no case at all, so you don’t have to put up with that bulky battery case all day.

National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden has come up with a concept iPhone case that could prevent the government from finding your location.

Smartphones, while incredibly useful, are also the “perfect tracking device,” Snowden wrote in a co-authored paper that covers his research.

Governments can monitor a user’s location through the radio signals from the phone and this can put journalists, activists, and rights workers in danger, he warned.

On Thursday, Snowden and hacker Andrew Huang presented a possible solution. It’s called “the introspection engine,” and it’s designed to alert the user if and when the phone’s radio signals are turned on.

Mobile devices have without a doubt brought convenience to the masses, but that benefit comes at a high price for journalists, activists, and human rights workers who work in war-torn regions or other high-risk environments. Now, NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden has designed an iPhone accessory that could one day be used to prevent the devices from leaking their whereabouts.

Working with renowned hardware hacker Andrew “Bunnie” Huang, Snowden has devised the design for what the team is calling the "Introspection Engine." For now, it's aimed only at iPhone 6 models, but eventually the pair hopes to create specifications for a large line of...

Apple Patches Stagefright-Like Bug In IOS

Reader Trailrunner7 writes: Apple has fixed a series of high-risk vulnerabilities in iOS, including three that could lead to remote code execution, with the release of iOS 9.3.3. One of those code-execution vulnerabilities lies in the way that iOS handles TIFF files in various applications (Alternate source: Fortune ). Researchers at Cisco's TALOS team, who discovered the flaw, said that the vulnerability has a lot of potential for exploitation. "This vulnerability is especially concerning as it can be triggered in any application that makes use of the Apple Image I/O API when rendering tiled TIFF images. This means that an attacker could deliver a payload that successfully exploits this vulnerability using a wide range of potential attack vectors including iMessages, malicious web pages, MMS messages, or other malicious file attachments opened by any application that makes use of the Apple Image I/O API for rendering these types of files," Cisco TALOS said in a blog post.

Swiftkey launches emoji-predicting Swiftmoji...

Remember a few months ago when Swiftkey, fresh off an acquisition by Microsoft, released a keyboard that would help you write like Shakespeare? Apparently, the company has realized that nobody wants to write like The Bard, they want to write with emoji. Today, they're fulfilling your dream of quickly finding just the right emoji. That is your dream, right?

Available on iOS and Android, Swiftmoji uses Swiftkey's word-prediction power to help you pick the perfect emoji. On Android, the keyboard works much like main Swiftkey keyboard, using your past typing history to predict what you'll type next. It just looks a little more whimsical, and has an ever-present row of emoji above the word predictions. As you type, that emoji-prediction row updates to show emoji related to what you just typed. It otherwise works much as Swiftkey does, with...

Sorry, you’ll have to wait another year for an “Apple Car.” An Apple-branded vehicle won’t be available in 2020, but has been pushed back to 2021, according to The Information.

Of course, Apple hasn’t confirmed any automotive plans, much less mentioned a release date. But that hasn’t stopped The Information from musing that “With seemingly another three to five years of research and development ahead, Apple's roadmap could change.”

In case you haven’t heard all the speculation about an Apple Car, I’ll give you an updated.

It senses your temperature without touching your skin, displays its readings instantly, and shows high temperature alerts. Thermo is more accurate than other digital thermometers thanks to its 16 infrared sensors that capture 4,000 measurements as it sweeps across your forehead. It syncs with your iPhone, offers advice based on readings, and can alert you when it’s time to take your temperature again. The Thermo costs US$99.95 and is available at the Apple Store and Withings website.

Smartwatch Shipments Fall For the First Time; Apple...

Emil Protalinski, reporting for VentureBeat: The smartwatch market has hit its first bump, and it's all Apple's fault. Vendors shipped a total of 3.5 million smartphones worldwide last quarter. This Q2 2016 figure is down 32 percent from the 5.1 million units shipped in Q2 2016, marking the first decline on record. It's important to note that smartwatches are just a subcategory of the larger wearable market. As such, these figures don't count basic bands sold by companies like Fitbit. Apple is thus the undisputed leader, even after the losses it saw in Q2 2016, and it could easily see a return to growth with the release of Watch OS 2.0. Apple's market share decreased 25 percentage points (from 72 percent to 47 percent) and it shipped less than half the smartwatches (1.6 million). But the company still holds almost half the market, with every other vendor shipping fewer than a million units.

At the time of Vaulin's arrest, KickassTorrents was the world's most visited illegal file-sharing website and was responsible for the unlawful distribution of over $1 billion in copyrighted materials.

Walt Mossberg, writing for The Verge:

Over the past few days, I’ve methodically deleted 165 apps from my iPhone, about 54 percent of the 305 apps I had on the phone when I started culling the herd. When I was done, I had significantly decreased the phone’s clutter: I’d gone from 15 home screens to eight, and reclaimed nearly 8GB of free space, about a 24 percent gain in my case.

And:

But this isn’t one of those columns about digital housecleaning or how to free up more space on your iPhone, valuable as those are. It’s easier to save space by offloading most photos, video, and music to the cloud anyway. No, this column is really about the fact that I think the novelty of the app itself has worn off. We’ve reached peak app.

Pokémon Go could generate billions for Apple

CNBC:

Needham & Co. Managing Director Laura Martin estimates that “Pokemon Go” could generate $3 billion in revenue for Apple in the next 12 to 24 months as the game expands into more countries. Since the game achieved penetration of 6 percent of the U.S. population after just 10 days, Martin predicts 20 percent penetration at maturity.

And here’s the key:

“I think the point is that while Nintendo has gone up 20 billion and they do have IP risks, Apple does not,” Martin said on CNBC’s “Halftime Report.” “It is hedged because the next genius that makes a hit game, Apple shares on that one too. So while this one may be transitory, Apple has an option on all future hit games over the iOS platform.”

At the core of the App Store’s business model is this risk disparity. Apple took the vast majority of their risk at inception, when they built the App Store infrastructure. Now that risk has been paid for and the current risk all lies with the developers....

Graham Spencer takes you on a behind-the-scenes guided tour through the App Store’s Top Grossing chart.

From the wrap-up:

If you regularly browse the App Store’s Top Charts most of these results would likely serve to confirm what you had already assumed. Most obviously, if you were to randomly pick an app from the Top 200 Grossing charts, chances are extremely high that you would pick a free app with IAPs and it would most likely be a game. But what is particularly suprising is the degree to which free apps with IAP dominate the charts with essentially no paid apps or no apps without IAPs.

Smartphones become indispensable tools for journalists, human right workers, and activists in war-torn regions. But at the same time, as Intercept points out, they become especially potent tracking devices that can put users in mortal danger by leaking their location. To address the problem, NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden and hardware hacker Andrew "Bunnie" Huang have been developing a way for potentially imperiled smartphone users to monitor whether their devices are making any potentially compromising radio transmissions. "We have to ensure that journalists can investigate and find the truth, even in areas where governments prefer they don't," Snowden told Intercept. "It's basically to make the phone work for you, how you want it, when you want it, but only when." Snowden and Huang presented their findings in a talk at MIT Media Lab's Forbidden Research event Thursday, and published a detailed paper. Huang has also detailed the technicalities in a blog post on his site. From...

Ad Age:

On Wednesday, the newspaper began blanking out, for some users, a percentage of words in articles symbolizing the percentage of the company’s revenue that comes from advertising.

The proportion of words blocked isn’t scientific, and the Financial Times doesn’t break out the exact chunk of revenue that comes from ads, said global advertising sales director Dominic Good. “It’s more illustrative than specific,” he said.

The test group comprises registered desktop computer visitors who don’t pay for a subscription, about .075% of the company’s desktop traffic. Some ad-blocking members of this group won’t see any new messaging, some will be asked to whitelist the website’s ads but can still read regardless, some will see articles with many words blanked out if they won’t whitelist the site, and some will be blocked outright if they don’t whitelist the site.

The company will evaulate the results after three or four weeks.

Firefox will start blocking Flash content next month

Following in the footsteps of the other major browser, Firefox is taking steps to drastically reduce Adobe Flash usage in the near future.

Mozilla recently announced that Firefox will “block certain Flash content that is not essential to the user experience”—in other words, ads and any behind the scenes operations using Flash. Mozilla says that blocking non-essential Flash should reduce crashes and browser hang-ups by as much as 10 percent. The initial blocked content will be restricted to a specific list that Mozilla has put up on Github, with plans to add more block targets to the list over time.

News: Corning announces Gorilla Glass 5

Corning has announced Gorilla Glass 5, the fifth-generation of the chemically-strengthened glass that has been used in iPhones, iPod touches, and iPads. The latest version promises to protect against even higher drops, and has been tested to survive 1.6-meter shoulder-height drops onto hard, rough surfaces up to eighty percent of the time — an improvement by a factor of four over competing glass solutions. Corning also notes that despite the improved…

A new class action lawsuit has been filed in California alleging that Apple is not living up to the terms of its AppleCare+ service plan by providing refurbished service stock replacements to customers rather than new devices. The suit takes specific issue with Apple replacing damaged devices with refurbished devices, focusing on the clause in the AppleCare+ terms that state that devices replaced under the program are “equivalent to new in performance…

Patent report: 3D displays, hybrid acoustic foam,...

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: 

Apple has filed for a patent (number 20160212413) for a”fine-coarse autostereoscoptic display” with an array of pixels for displaying 3D images. iPhones and iPads with 3D screens, perhaps? How about an iMac with a 3D, 5K Retina display?

 

Three-dimensional displays are able to display images that have a three-dimensional appearance. Autostereoscopic displays can display three-dimensional images without requiring viewers to wear special glasses, one of the reasons 3D TVs never caught on big. 

In the patent filing, Apple says that challenges can arise in creating high quality 3D displays. When a user views an object, the user's eyes pivot in opposite directions until the user's...

Teal Pushes Drone Speed Limits


Teal Drones on Wednesday introduced what it billed as the world's fastest production drone. Aside from its drone's capabilities, the company is drawing attention because George Matus Jr., its founder and CEO, is an 18-year-old recent high school graduate.
The drone can fly at 70 mph in all weather conditions and has reached a top speed of 85 mph in favorable conditions. It can withstand 40 mph winds, is built to run apps, and can be controlled using a smartphone, tablet or hobby controller.

Lay your iPad in the lap of luxury with the Lapworks...

As the iPad market exploded, products, the choices for a good stand became overwhelming. Some people have made a cheap stand from a few parts found at an office supply store, while others have a rudimentary stand built right into an iPad protective sleeve.

Lapworks focuses on style and function rather than portability and cost with the $29.99 Lapworks iPad and E-Reader Recliner. Even better, it’s now on sale for $19.95.

Fortunately, this stand isn't specific to the iPad, but can hold any similarly sized tablet device such as a Kindle or Nook. The stand is adjustable and can sit anywhere from 8.25 inches tall to 4.25 inches tall so you can comfortable read or display your device at any angle. It also supports the iPad in either a portrait or landscape mode. The rubber pads provide an excellent grip to prevent slipping and sliding while allowing full access to the device, including the...

Petition urges Apple not to release technology for...

Over 11,000 people have signed a petition asking Apple not to deploy technology that would allow third parties like the police to use it to disable cameras on user phones under certain circumstances.

Apple got a patent for this infrared technology in June and bagging a patent does not necessarily mean that the company is going to use the technology in its new devices.

But there is considerable anxiety that the technology that appears designed to prevent people from recording copyrighted and prohibited material could also be used by the police to remotely disable cameras that could be recording misconduct by law enforcement.

“The release of this technology would have huge implications, including the censoring of political dissidents, activists, and citizens who are recording police brutality,” according to the petition.

A Care2 petition has launched a petition asking Apple not to implement a recently-granted patent that would allow iPhone cameras to be disabled remotely.

While the patent has in mind situations like concerts, where the audience can have their view blocked by a sea of cameraphones, the petition is concerned about the potential for more sinister uses of the technology …

By Aaron Lee

Conner Productions's Seal is a one trick pony, but it's a pretty nifty trick. It's a professional template to make introductory seal titles for Apple's Final Cut Pro X (FCP X). And it's free.

Seal is customizable and lets you create introduction seals for your videos,  featuring a spinning seal that comes into focus. Its easy to customize text color, background color, and other elements to craft the template to fit within a video. Conner Production has made installing Seal easy. Just run the simple installer, then fire up Final Cut Pro X. You'll find it under Title Templates, then “Conner Productions.” It’s name is “Seal.” Simply drag it onto the timeline and you're off.

No matter how long the text is or how much the title is tweaked, it will still have a refined l feel. Seal was designed in Apple's Motion, and features organic gaussian blurs, noise, and stylistic effects.

BlackBerry CEO 'Disturbed' By Apple's...

An anonymous reader writes: BlackBerry CEO John Chen said he is "disturbed" by Apple's tough approach to encryption and user privacy, warning that the firm's attitude is harmful to society. Earlier this year, Chen said in response to Apple resisting the government's demands to unlock an iPhone belonging to one of the San Bernardino shooters: "We are indeed in a dark place when companies put their reputations above the greater good." During BlackBerry's Security Summit in New York this week, Chen made several more comments about Apple's stance on encryption. "One of our competitors, we call it 'the other fruit company,' has an attitude that it doesn't matter how much it might hurt society, they're not going to help," he said. "I found that disturbing as a citizen. I think BlackBerry, like any company, should have a basic civil responsibility. If the world is in danger, we should be able to help out." He did say there was a lot of "nonsense" being reported about BlackBerry and its...

Vaja is offering a 20% sitewide discount on its leather cases for iPhones, iPads, and even a few Android devices. I don’t often mention things like sales, but I am a huge fan of Vaja cases. My first Vaja case was for the last Motorola RAZR I owned before I got the first-gen iPhone. I then got a Vaja case for that iPhone and for the iPhone 3GS I replaced it with. They’re very well made, high quality, and gorgeous, but you pay for what you get. That’s code for “they ain’t cheap,” making a 20% discount a possible buying opportunity for me. To get the discount, use coupon code “20off” at checkout. The item pictured with this article is the iPad Pro 9.7″ Detachable Libretto Leather Case, which normally starts at $199.

The U.S. has dealt a major blow to KickassTorrents, one of the world’s most popular illegal files-sharing websites.

On Wednesday, law enforcement in Poland arrested the alleged owner of the site, 30 year-old Artem Vaulin of Ukraine.

He's been charged with criminal copyright infringement, and the U.S. Department of Justice said it was seeking to extradite him to the U.S. The DOJ also seized several domains associated with the service, although the main site appeared to be still running Wednesday afternoon.

Apple sued over AppleCare + service plans

Another day, another lawsuit. Apple is the target of a class action suit filing in California that says"refurbished" service stock replacements allotted by Apple in exchange for damaged devices to AppleCare+ service plan holders aren’t functionally the same as new, reports AppleInsider.

“The class action suit, filed Wednesday, takes offense to Apple replacing damaged devices with refurbished devices,” the article says. “Specifically mentioned, the suit is over the clause in the AppleCare+ contract documents stating that devices replaced under the program are "equivalent to new in performance and reliability."

Lawyers for the claimants claim that refurbished means "a secondhand unit that has been modified to appear to be new" and can’t be equivalent in durability or functionality as a new unit.
