TMO Daily Observations 2015-05-19: Carl Icahn Knows...

Carl Icahn had all kinds of things to say about Apple recently, and Bryan and Dave have all kinds of things to say about Carl Icahn. Seems Apple had some things to say about Carl Icahn, too, or at least that's what the Wall Street Journal's story yesterday infers. Apple won't be making a screened version of the Apple TV according to WSJ (and it sure sounds like a controlled leak from Apple). All this and more on today's TDO!

Apple has just released Watch OS 1.0.1, the first ever over-the-air software update for the Apple Watch. The new version improves performance for Siri, Accessibility, and third-party apps. Some fitness tracking functions also get attention—standing activity measurements, calorie counting for indoor cycling and rowing, and measuring distance and pace while walking and running outdoors have all been improved.

The update includes support for the new emoji introduced in iOS 8.3. Brazilian Portuguese, Danish, Dutch, Swedish, Russian, Thai, and Turkish language support have also been improved.

Apple Watch software updates are installed from the Apple Watch app rather than from the watch itself. Go to the app, then General, and Software Update to prompt an update check. To install the update, Apple says your watch needs to be within...

Apple's back in the pricey iPhone dock business

Apple has just released a new iPhone dock, and like any other Apple product, you’ll pay a premium for its extreme simplicity.

The “iPhone Lightning Dock” costs $39, and works with any Lighting-equipped iPhone (including the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus) or iPod Touch. It’s a simple slab of white plastic, with a wide enough base to work with reasonably-sized iPhone cases. It also has an audio line-out port, so you can hook up external speakers through any 3.5 mm cable (sold separately, of course.)

This isn’t the first Lightning Dock that Apple has sold for the iPhone. In 2013, the company released a pair of docks for the iPhone 5s and 5c, but neither are compatible with other iPhones. The new one is universal, at the expense of a more form-fitted base.

The new 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display ($1,999 - $2,499) goes a step beyond simply adding the Force Touch trackpad, however, with some nice performance boosts to storage and battery life.

Apple has updated its iMac with Retina 5K Display ($1,999 – $2,299) which first debuted last fall, dropping the price of the original model, introducing a second more affordable option, and emphasizing the higher resolution display by adding “5K” to the product’s name. Sporting the same 27” 5120 x 2880 display, the $1,999 model features a 3.3 GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 CPU and AMD Radeon R9 M290 graphics, 8GB of memory and 1TB of storage alongside four USB 3.0 ports and two Thunderbolt 2 ports.

Researcher's Airplane-Hacking Claims May Not Fly


A security researcher who made headlines last month for bragging he'd hacked into a passenger jet's internal computer systems while in flight appears to have performed the act more than a dozen times over a three-year period. Chris Roberts, founder and CTO of One World Labs, told FBI investigators earlier this year that he'd hacked into the flight systems of commercial passenger aircraft from 15-20 times from 2011-2014, and on one occasion "caused one of the airplane engines to climb resulting in a lateral or sideways movement of the plane."

One of them is said to be the ability to find your Apple Watch if it goes missing.

A new report claims Apple is working on a “Find My Watch” implementation that could be paired with a “Smart Leashing” feature that would remind Apple Watch users if they appear to have accidentally left their iPhones behind.

Not surprisingly, Apple is working on a “Find My Watch” feature for the wearable that will allow you to track its location, lock it or remotely wipe its data.

Hanging up my virtual pen

I had the good fortune to be around for the dawn of some of the most significant technological developments in human history: the arrival of personal computers, the emergence of the Internet and the World Wide Web, and the current dominance of social media and mobile devices. These and other technological advances continue to alter our world at an ever accelerating pace. One day Apple is on the verge of bankruptcy. The next day (or so it sometimes seems), it is the largest most profitable company on earth. Who’d have guessed?

There are a lot of people I wish would retire from writing about Apple – Ted Landau is not one of those people. Many of us owe a great debt of thanks to Ted for all of his many years of service to the Mac Community. For me personally, I was a fan of his writing at MacFixIt and he was always extraordinary helpful whenever I emailed him. As a podcaster, I interviewed him several times and, as a speaker at Macworld Expos, I was lucky enough to sit and...

What's up? Dock. An Apple Lightning dock

iPhone charging docks that work with the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus appeared to be the sole realm of accessory manufacturers until today, when Apple introduced the new iPhone Lightning Dock (US$39). 

Design-wise it is rather plain, just a white plastic rounded square with a built-in Lightning connector, a port to plug in a USB to Lightning charging cable (don't worry, one came with your iPhone, remember?), and a 3.5mm audio line-out port. The iPhone sits at a slight angle instead of standing vertically.

The iPhone Lightning Dock is compatible with all iPhone 5 and iPhone 6 models, as well as the 5th-generation iPod touch.

Talk of a game-changing Retina TV prototype locked away in a secret lair at 1 Infinite Loop pops up every now and again, but at this point, it’s more of a punchline than a much-anticipated product.

And while many of the Apple TV (as in television set, not set-top box) rumors can be blamed on analysts like Gene Munster, who would like to think Apple will take over the HDTV market, the company itself has fueled the fire. It was Apple CEO Steve Jobs who in 2011 told his biographer, Walter Isaacson, that he had at long last cracked the TV user interface and wanted to make an “integrated television set.” Jobs’s successor Tim Cook has also mentioned Apple’s big plans for TV...

Automatic, a Bluetooth dongle that plugs into your car’s on-board diagnostic port to stream data to your iPhone, has been updated to a new version capable of streaming to two apps at the same time. The company has also launched an ‘app store for cars’ in the form of a webpage with download links to 22 apps that are compatible with the device.

We reviewed the original model back in 2013, when Zac Hall described it as smart, fun and interesting. At the time, it could only stream data to Automatic’s own companion app, but the latest version supports two simultaneous Bluetooth data streams, allowing both Automatic and a second app to receive data simultaneously.

Compatible apps include nine business-oriented apps,...

Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster, who has confidently predicted the imminent arrival of a fully-fledged Apple television year after year, has finally admitted he was just making wild guesses mistaken in his analysis.

Faced with the WSJ‘s report that Apple had considered launching its own TV set but had dropped its plans a full year ago, Munster has issued a note entitled Facing The Reality of No Apple Television, reports Business Insider.

“Given how adamant we have been about the reality of an Apple television, it’s hard to accept the reality of no Apple television,” says Munster in his note. “Our latest thinking prior to this story was that Apple would launch a television in 2016. Based on this report, we no longer expect a television to launch...

Apple just updated the 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro, but some of its desktops are getting love too. The Retina 5K iMac, formerly available for $2,499, has gotten a $200 price cut. For $2,299, you get a 3.5GHz (3.9GHz Turbo) quad-core Core i5 CPU, 8GB of DDR3 RAM, a 1TB Fusion Drive, and an AMD Radeon R9 M290X GPU. Faster CPUs and GPUs and larger non-Fusion SSDs are all still available as upgrade options, the only difference from the model that was introduced last fall is the price drop.

Joining the $2,299 Retina iMac is a new $1,999 model with lower specs. It includes a non-upgradeable 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo) quad-core Core i5 CPU, a non-upgradeable AMD R9 M290 GPU (not the M290X), 8GB of DDR3 RAM, and a...

The ultimate guide to texting with the Apple Watch

A watch has always had one main job: convey information quickly and reliably to its wearer. Way back in 1893, the Garstin Company of London produced a "Watch Wristlet" that was used by soldiers to coordinate troop movement and synchronize attacks. Over the years, various incarnations of wrist watches have provided at-a-glance information to their wearers, precisely when he or she needed it.

Apple's Watch does this as well, but with a twist: communication. And it's even cooler than the gadgets I dreamed about as a kid.

The typical "people familiar with the matter" tell the WSJ that Apple had "a small team" working on a TV set for a few years, but that the team had been disbanded and its members reassigned to other projects "more than a year ago."

The main problem, according to the report, was a lack of innovative features that would distinguish an Apple TV set from its competitors....

Behind Apple’s move to shelve TV plans

The Wall Street Journal:

Investor Carl Icahn said he expects Apple Inc. to introduce an ultra-high-definition television in 2016. But after nearly a decade of research, Apple quietly shelved plans to make such a set more than a year ago, according to people familiar with the matter.

Apple had searched for breakthrough features to justify building an Apple-branded television set, those people said. In addition to an ultra-high-definition display, Apple considered adding sensor-equipped cameras so viewers could make video calls through the set, they said.

Ultimately, though, Apple executives didn’t consider any of those features compelling enough to enter the highly competitive television market, led by Samsung Electronics Co.

It’s been an open secret for years that Apple has tested many variations of television sets but just couldn’t find a way to include features compelling enough to bring it to market. Regardless of what Icahn wants or believes, Apple...

Appeals Court Agrees that Samsung Copied Apple

The United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit ruled Monday that Samsung did indeed copy Apple. In a 34-page ruling, the court upheld most Apple's landmark victory over Samsung in 2012, but threw out damages relating to trade dress. In other words, Apple's innovations in the area of user interface remain protected in this ruling, but the overall look of Apple's hardware was not.

Will Apple TV Be Busting Out All Over?


I want to believe that Apple will launch a new Apple TV hardware device in June at WWDC -- but holy macaroni, it's been more than three years since Apple introduced the third-generation Apple TV. Of course, Apple made a barely noticeable hardware tweak more than two years ago, but I'm begging for an Apple TV that's far more than just a utilitarian tool -- and on the surface, many signs seem to point toward such a revelation at WWDC. Before I get to the core rumors and signs, I should admit that a small part of me remains skeptical.

Hands on with the Duet iPhone and Apple Watch Dock

Duet dock image via antsy labs

Now that the Apple Watch has been out for nearly a month, accessories are starting to arrive in droves. Among the most highly anticpated are the charging docks that make it possible to make your Watch charging setup look more classy than just having that cable and “puck” running to the back of your smartwatch. Antsy Labs of Denver, Colorado has a great-looking and functional dock named Duet ($99, available now for a $79 pledge) that is getting Kickstarter funding right now, and with three weeks to go the campaign has already exceeed its goal. Matt and Mark from Antsy sent Apple World Today a prototype to try out, and here’s our review.

Court of Appeals Says Samsung's Legal Payments...

Mark Wilson writes: Patent lawsuits in the world of technology are nothing new, and the case between Apple and Samsung resulted in one of the largest fines ever being handed down. Samsung was order to pay $930 million in damages after a court found that the company had violated Apple patents with its smartphone and tablet designs. Today the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit overturned part of the original ruling, saying that the jury was wrong to say that Samsung infringed on Apple's trade dress intellectual property. The exact details of what this will mean are yet to come out, but it should lead to a fairly hefty reduction in Samsung's legal costs.

Last week potential Republican Presidential Candidate Jeb Bush made headlines when he was spotted wearing an Apple Watch on the still-exploring-but-definitely-running campaign trail, using the press opportunity as a chance to dish out the zinger that its health apps were better than Obamacare.

The White House has given its own endorsement of Apple today, however, as President Obama launched his own personal Twitter account (not to be confused with the OFA-ran @BarackObama account) with a tweet that originated from an iPhone....

The Future According to Qualcomm


I was at the Qualcomm Internet of Things event in San Francisco last week during what was a major IoT event in the city. What is kind of amazing is the larger event was just a small part of the applications show that used to go on at the same time. This year it is twice the size of that older show. Companies are flocking to this IoT concept like ducks to water. This means in a few short years we are going to be up to our ears in connected things. Qualcomm plans to be at the center of this with modems, hubs, and two broad initiatives.

Less than a month after Apple Watch began shipping, Apple is already prepping future versions of Watch OS. According to a Monday report from 9to5Mac, Apple has a ton of ideas for its most personal device, but some of them might require updated hardware.

Appeals court slashes down Apple’s $930M win against...

The US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit wiped out (PDF) a sizable chunk of Apple's biggest legal win today, overturning parts of a 2012 jury verdict against Samsung that entitled the iPhone maker to $930 million in damages.

Apple won that trial on both patent claims and claims related to "trade dress," an amorphous part of trademark law. The Federal Circuit, which considers all patent appeals, said the trade dress claims weren't legally justified and threw them out. The Federal Circuit is leaving it to the lower court to issue a final judgment, but since those claims accounted for $382 million of Apple's big win, that's how much Apple is expected to lose. It's more than 40 percent of the verdict winnings, leaving $548...

AWT Health Club: Motivation

When you take a glance at the bottom of this post to see how I did last week, you’ll see that the results are exactly the opposite of what I wanted. In other words, my weight was up a bit and my steps per day were down. Today I’m going to talk about motivation to exercise and eat correctly, something that I apparently lack.

Motivation

The entire idea behind becoming more fit is to essentially do two things — eat less and exercise more. There are points in your life where everything is going to conspire against your achievement of those simple goals, and for me, this last week was one of them. So what are my excuses? The weather has been soggy here in Colorado with lots of rain muddying my favorite hiking path. As many of my Apple World Today friends know, I’m in an elder care situation with my parents right now that takes a surprising amount of time and energy. And finally, the stress from that situation makes me want to eat comfort food and drink...

Our friend and colleague Ted Landau has announced that he no longer plans to write professionally, noting that the end of Macworld’s print version, and the closure of TUAW and his own MacFixIt (run by CNET), marks a torch-passing moment to younger journalists. Ted’s writing career dates back to the introduction of the Mac in the mid-1980s, and he’s been a fixture ever since, penning both articles for numerous Mac outlets and a variety of books (including the classic “Sad Macs, Bombs & Other Disasters” and one of the first titles about the iPhone, our “Take Control of Your iPhone”). We’d say that we’ll miss him, but we’re sure that Ted will still be popping up on Twitter when he’s not enjoying his time offline with his wife Naomi.

The rumor mill has it that Apple will be announcing an updated 15-inch Retina Display MacBook Pro as well as an updated 27-inch iMac.

MacG.Go has cited an unnamed source who has provided accurate information on a number of occasions in the past, but provides no further details regarding the exact specs and upgrades that could go into the two new computers. Given that the 13-inch MacBook Pro was updated back in March with the expected processing and graphics boosts, as well as a...

Appeals court: Samsung violated Apple's design...

A mixed courtroom outcome on Monday ruled that Sumsung's $930 million penalty in the ongoing patent infringement suit needs to be adjusted. While the The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit agreed with the jury's assessment that Samsung violated Apple's design and utility patents, it also ruled that the company did not infringe on Apple's trade dress

This means that the $930 million penalty will likely be reduced, once the trade dress is removed. The original penalty levied against Samsung was $1.05 billion, but Judge Lucy Koh removed $450 million from that award and set a retrial to reassess damages. The result of that retrial was the $930 million penalty, which will now be reduced even further. 

Samsung's request for a retrial was denied.

The user-experience experts at the Nielsen/Norman Group have turned their eyes to the Apple Watch. Raluca Budiu criticizes the Apple Watch’s reliance on tiny touch targets, and notes that a left-right scrolling “deck of cards” interface works better than a list view that requires users to “pogo-stick” in and out of a detail view. Budiu also comments that Handoff would work better if your iPhone was automatically unlocked when the watch was in close proximity, as is true of the Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch. Recommendations for developers include focusing on the essential, avoiding buttons and complex navigation, and creating bits of text that stand on their own, along with realizing that the watch is not merely a smaller phone.
