News: Apple CEO Tim Cook talks privacy to NPR

Photo: Ariel Zambelich/NPR In a recent interview with NPR’s Robert Siegel, Apple CEO Tim Cook emphasized how he feels that “privacy is a fundamental human right” and discussed how Apple and its products and services work to protect the privacy of its users. Cook stated that the government does contact Apple “from time to time”, and of course Apple will supply any requested information if the government asks “in…

Typeeto makes it easy to use your Mac keyboard with...

If you've ever wanted to use your Mac's keyboard with your iPhone or iPad, Eltima Software's Typeeto can make it happen. 

If you find that typing on the iOS devices' virtual keyboard works just fine, this app isn't for you. If you've bought a third party keyboard for your iDevice, this isn't for you. If, however, you want to use your Mac's keyboard with your iPhone or iPad, this app IS for you. 

Typeeto provides a real-time access to a full-scale Mac keyboard for easier interaction and typing on your iOS devices. You can connect as many devices as you need to your Mac and switch between them in one click, which is very convenient. 

I like the fact that no additional applications have to be installed on your device. Just launch Typeeto and start typing away. You can copy-paste text from your Mac to the device and the vice versa.

As for Yours Truly, I almost never use a keyboard with my iPhone or...

Microsoft has updated its Skype for iPhone and iPad apps to add support for two new features in iOS 9: Slide Over and Split View. This follows close behind its update of the Mac app to add Split View in El Capitan.

Millions of people use Skype every day to share URLs and photos. iOS9’s new Split View and Slide Over capabilities let you use Skype while using another app alongside it, making sharing your content even better. Imagine you’re planning a night out in London with a group of friends using IM or a group voice call. Now you can share links to bars and restaurants...

One 'spaceship' campus is not enough, so...

The current "spaceship campus" Apple is building apparently isn't enough. According to The Silicon Valley Business Journal reports that the company has secured a deal to build another spaceship campus in Sunnyvale, California.

The article says Apple has sealed a deal for Landbank Investments LLC’s planned Central & Wolfe campus — a curvaceous, 777,000-square-foot project at Central Expressway and Wolfe Road "that’s expected to look like nothing else ever attempted in Silicon Valley." Its marketing web address is (where the graphics for this article came from).

Meanwhile, construction is well underway for Apple’s first spaceship campus, and should be finished by the end of 2016. The new campus, which will supplement and not replace Apple’s current headquarters at 1 Infinite Loop, was a pet project of the late Steve Jobs. It’s a four-story, 2.8 million...

Steve Jobs movie “deviates from reality everywhere”...

Andy Hertzfeld (R) with the actor who plays him, Michael Stuhlbarg (L)

Andy Hertzfeld, one of the key designers of the original Macintosh system software, has told Re/code that the Sorkins/Boyle movie Steve Jobs “deviates from reality everywhere” but “exposes deeper truths” about the man.

It deviates from reality everywhere — almost nothing in it is like it really happened — but ultimately that doesn’t matter that much. The purpose of the film is to entertain, inspire and move the audience, not to portray reality. It is cavalier about the facts but aspires to explore and expose the deeper truths...

Some iPhone 6s/Plus users are reporting a display glitch in Wallet and some other apps, where they get a permanently zoomed-in view after restoring from an iPhone 5/5S/5C. Apple has told owners that it is aware of the issue but does not currently have a fix other than setting up the phone as a new one.

Eventually we'll get a Mac OS X interface with...

Could Mac OS X 10.12 -- the operating system update that will follow this fall's OS X El Capitan -- sport a 3D interface? Probably not, but a future version likely will. 

Natural human interfaces, based upon hand gestures in free space, represent the next big evolutionary jump in consumer and industrial electronics. Natural interfaces utilize advanced 3-D vision technology to interpret actions by users -- such as hand gestures or other movement-based input -- as commands for the device. 

However, unlike the mouse or the touchscreen, with which the user has to make physical contact, there's no physical device that/s touched. Rather, the TV, computer or other appliance simply observes the user and the user’s surroundings, and derives meaning from what it sees. With the same ease that an officer can direct traffic at a busy intersection with a few natural gestures, we will be able to convey our intent to our devices, Spare predicted.

Here's how to manage your iCloud storage

Recently, my lovely wife started receiving messages from her iPhone 5s telling her that she was running out of iCloud space. The fact that she has about eight bazillion photos floating around (she never deletes ANY pic) could be the reason. She hasn't learned how to manage her iCloud storage. However, she — and you, if you haven't -- should. 

You have two choices when you reach or exceed your storage limit. One: you can upgrade your iCloud storage plan or reduce the amount of storage you're using.  You can reduce your iCloud storage by choosing which apps and backups to store, and you can move or delete documents, photos, and email messages that you no longer need. (Before you delete anything, you might want to archive or make copies of your iCloud data.)

Use these steps to see how much iCloud storage is available in your account.

On your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch:

  • If you're using iOS 8/9 or later, tap Settings > iCloud > Storage > Manage Storage...

Get Backup Pro makes life easier for owners of...

I've updated two Macs — a 12-inch MacBook and 27-inch iMac — to Mac OS X El Capitan without any hiccups. However, I'm always cautious so I used BeLight Software's Get Backup to clone a copy of the Macs' drives before upgrading the operating system. I'd recommend you do the same. 

Get Backup lets you use Mac OS X 10.6 or higher to clone a hard drive or solid state drive, making a backup disc that be booted up just in case there's a problem like a system crash that could result in the loss of valuable data. (Note that this can take several hours depending on the size of your Mac's drive.) However, what really sets Get Backup Pro apart from its competitors is its ability to keep files in-sync and up-to-date on two computers. More on that in a second.

Backups are compressed, reducing the size of resulting archives as much as up to 60 percent. You can archive to external devices and drives or to...

The 10 Mac games you need to play from September 2015

September's Mac games

Traditionally, the last few months of the year are when all the big game publishers launch their most notable games—but the Mac market is a little bit different. In fact, our look at September’s top Mac games barely has any major publishers in sight, and only one game that sells for more than $15. 

Yet this is still one of the strongest selections of new games we’ve had all year, with a nicely diverse array of indie experiences and even a couple of ports of fantastic iOS games. And where else are you going to find a list that includes a tense, terrifying undersea adventure like SOMA and then a point-and-click hugging game about a clown named Dropsy? Nowhere, probably. So check out the list ahead, and be sure to loop back on August’s picks if you need even more recent Mac options.

Apple CEO Tim Cook: ‘Privacy is a fundamental human...


Apple has long touted the power and design of its devices, but recently the world’s most valuable company has been emphasizing another feature: privacy. That’s no small matter when many users store important private data on those devices: account numbers, personal messages, photos.

Apple CEO Tim Cook talks to NPR’s Robert Siegel about how the company protects its customers’ data, and how it uses — or doesn’t use — that information.

Yet another fascinating interview with Cook. He is really hammering home the security and privacy angle of Apple’s corporate position.

∞ Amazon to ban sale of Apple, Google video-...

Bloomberg: Inc. will stop selling media-streaming devices from Google Inc. and Apple Inc. that aren’t easily compatible with its video service, the latest example of the company using its clout to promote products that fit with its own retailing strategy.

The Seattle-based Web retailer sent an e-mail to its marketplace sellers that it will stop selling the Apple TV and Google’s Chromecast since those devices don’t “interact well” with Prime Video. No new listings for the products will be allowed and posting of existing inventory will be removed Oct. 29, Amazon said.

Interesting, if foolhardy, move by Amazon. They want to push sales of their own product so much, they are willing to give up the revenue generated by the more popular...

As many of you have probably heard, Patreon -- the service that we use to process most of our patron donations -- was the victim of a database hack. To quote Jack Conte, the CEO and Co-Founder of Patreon,

“There was unauthorized access to registered names, email addresses, posts, and some shipping addresses. Additionally, some billing addresses that were added prior to 2014 were also accessed. We do not store full credit card numbers on our servers and no credit card numbers were compromised. Although accessed, all passwords, social security numbers and tax form information remain safely encrypted with a 2048-bit RSA key. No specific action is required of our users, but as a precaution I recommend that all users update their passwords on Patreon.”

The company will purchase Landbank Investments LLC’s planned Central & Wolfe campus which comes in at 777,000-square-feet at Central Expressway and Wolfe Road in Silicon Valley.

Specific terms of the deal are unknown at this point, although the report claims that the deal has been finalized and completed. It’s also believed that Apple most likely leased, not purchased, the project.

Apple Trumpets New Privacy Policy

Apple has updated its privacy policy with new information regarding features in iOS 9 and OS X El Capitan. The company attempts to set itself apart from rivals by noting that it doesn't build profiles about its customers to sell to advertisers. For example, unlike Google Maps, which tracks a user's journey end to end, Apple Maps separates data about users' trips into segments that are not linked. The Apple News app collects data on what users read, like the Google News app. However, it doesn't tie reading habits to a user's account.

Continuing his string of interviews and appearances, Apple CEO Tim Cook today appeared on NPR’s All Things Considered show and was interviewed by Robert Siegel. Cook and Siegel talked about a variety of topics in the interview, including Apple News, customer privacy, and more.

First off, the two discussed Apple’s goal to maintain the privacy of its customers at all costs. Cook has always been a huge proponent of user rights and his tone did not change in this interview. Cook explained that Apple will do whatever it takes to maintain the privacy of its users:

We do think that people want us to help them keep their lives private. We see that privacy is a fundamental human right that people have. We are going to do everything that we can to help maintain that trust.

Regarding the NSA, Cook noted how he...

Notable apps and app updates for October 1, 2015

Each day, 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:

iOS Apps / Updates

Yeah, we already told you about Tweetbot 4 for Twitter ($4.99 launch price), the universal update to the best Twitter client for iOS. But we'll tell you again - it's worth the update and definitely worth getting if you're still using that horrible standard Twitter app.

Why Apple Music is the first music streaming service...

I love music. While my tastes skew more toward the days when guitar and drum sounds were made with actual guitars and drums, I have a rapacious appetite for music both new and old, and I’m just as likely to be listening to Eminem or Taylor Swift as I am to Led Zeppelin or Pearl Jam. 

But thus far I’ve resisted the lure of music subscriptions. I’m certainly not averse to digital music: I ran out to buy my first iPod the morning it was available on November 10, 2001, and spent the rest of the weekend ripping my entire CD collection. My iTunes library is approaching the 20,000-song mark, and iTunes Match is easily the best $25 I spend each year. But no matter which service I tried, none of them struck the right chord with me.

Default Folder X doesn't play well with El...

St. Clair Software's Default Folder X — one of my favorite Mac utilities — won't work with OS X El Capitan's System Integrity Protection feature enabled. To allow Default Folder X to run, you can disable System Integrity Protection — or wait until Default Folder Version 5 is released (it's coming "soon," according to the folks at St. Clair Software).

System Integrity Protection ("SIP" for short) is a new feature in El Capitan that prevents anything from modifying the basic components of Mac OS X, even if it's just done temporarily in memory. As St. Clair Software notes, this makes it very difficult for computer viruses or anything else to harmfully change or corrupt your system. The downside, however, is that it disables some capabilities that applications like Default Folder X use to give you more functionality.

If you want to run Default Folder X in El Capitan, you'll have to disable SIP in the...

Amazon To Cease Sale of Apple TV and Chromecast

Mark Wilson writes: As of 29 October, shoppers will no longer be able to buy Apple TV or Chromecast devices from Amazon. Citing compatibility issues with Prime Video, Amazon emailed marketplace sellers to inform them it is not accepting new listings for the two media devices, and any existing listings will be removed at the end of October. The move indicates not only the importance Amazon places on its streaming Prime Video service, but also that it views Apple and Google as serious rivals. The two companies have yet to respond to the news, but it is unlikely to be well-received.

Logitech K380/M535 Photo ©2015 steven sande

A lot of us use Apple Keyboards and mice or trackpads on our Macs and iPads until that inevitable day when they fail; then it's time to look for something that's going to be a longterm replacement that won't cost an arm and a leg. Logitech recently introduced the K380 Multi-Device Bluetooth Keyboard (US$39.99) and the M535 Bluetooth Mouse ($39.99), and I was able to put both to use with a tough customer -- my wife. 

She was using a six-year-old Apple Wireless Keyboard (the one with three, not two AA batteries) and an older Logitech Bluetooth Mouse. The keyboard was getting to the point that it was losing pairing on a regular basis, and the mouse was too large for her hand, causing issues with her rheumatoid arthritis...

On the other end is a portable camera, the size of a webcam, that can go up to three hours without an external power source. It's a two-way camera that can stand in for a webcam or allow someone to shout directives to a rogue pet.

Opinion: Is iOS’s Home screen heading towards text-...

Is Apple considering another round of major changes to iOS’s Home screen? If watchOS and tvOS are any indication, the answer could be “yes.” Earlier this year, Apple launched the Apple Watch with a purely text-free Home screen, requiring users to identify 20-some initial apps (and manually-added third-party apps) by icon designs alone. This month, it will release the fourth-generation Apple TV with a refreshed UI, again almost entirely eliminating below-app text in favor of redesigned icons with 3D depth.

While it would be easy to write off Apple’s changes to text labels as one-off decisions for “really small screen” and “really big screen” devices, they collectively raise an interesting question: if developers properly redesigned their iOS icons, would text labels — a staple of graphical user interfaces for decades...

One of iOS 9’s most useful features on modern iPads is the ability to playback videos from the Home screen or other apps using picture-in-picture. Video services have to opt-in to supporting PIP, though, so it means App Store apps must be updated before the feature works.

HBO has done just that with their iOS 9 update for iPad, supporting picture-in-picture when you leave the HBO Now app while you’re watching a movie or TV show. The feature is only mentioned in the update for the standalone HBO Now service, however, so the HBO Go version which...

All is right with the world. It's October, the fourth quarter of the year has arrived, Halloween is on the way, the US football season is going strong, and soon the Major League Baseball's postseason will kick into gear. And even better, Tapbots has updated its Twitter client and it's amazing. Tweetbot 4 for iPad and iPhone (US$4.99 introductory price) brings a number of features that you're not going to find anywhere else.

There's bound to be some whining and complaining, because Tweetbot 4 is a new purchase for everyone, even those of you who have used Tweetbot for years. To me, spending $5 (or even the eventual price of $10) to get a huge update an app that I use many times daily is a bargain. Tweetbot 3 buyers will be able to get the updated app for $4.99 after the launch thanks to a special bundle.

How Steve Jobs fleeced Carly Fiorina


Ms. Fiorina’s trainwreck stint at HP has been well documented. But I want to address one tiny but telling aspect of her misbegotten reign: an episode that involved her good friend Steve Jobs. It is the story of the HP iPod.

The iPod, of course, was Apple’s creation, a groundbreaking digital music player that let you have “a music library in your pocket.” Introduced in 2001, it gained steam over the next few years and by the end of 2003, the device was a genuine phenomenon. So it was news that in January 2004, Steve Jobs and Carly Fiorina made a deal where HP could slap its name on Apple’s wildly successful product. Nonetheless, HP still managed to botch things. It could not have been otherwise, really, because Steve Jobs totally outsmarted the woman who now claims she can run the United States of America.

I can talk about this with some authority. Not only have I written a book about the iPod, but I interviewed Fiorina face to face when she introduced...

Tweetbot 4 for iOS adds redesigned iPad UI and new...

Tweetbot for iOS has undergone another big upgrade today. The new release marks the first time the iPad version of the app has been redesigned to match the all-new UI introduced in iOS 7. iPhone users need not feel left out, however, as this update has a set of new features and design tweaks for you as well.

Let’s dive right in and take a look at what’s new.

New Features

The new features in Tweetbot 4 appear across both iPhone and iPad, bringing the two apps in line for the first time in a while. This is aided by the iPad’s new design, which we’ll discuss later....

There may be some issues to sort out with the first batches of the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus handsets.

Following last week’s launch of the newest iPhones, a number of customers have reported issues ranging from overheating Touch ID buttons to random power-offs, significant audio distortion, and 3D Touch glitches.

The problems include the following:

– Touch ID: Some users of the iPhone 6s have reported that their Home buttons/Touch ID scanners are becoming “really hot” to the touch, a problem that can apparently be resolved by holding down the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons for 10 seconds to reset the phone.

– Power: Some iPhone...

This kind of falls under the category of “Invoking the Wrath of Apple”.

Or at least its legal department.

The coolest of cats over at iFixit, famous for providing amazing hardware teardown and repair guides for assorted gadgets, had their developer account canceled after publishing a teardown of the new Apple TV developer unit in violation of Apple’s terms and conditions.

As such, iFixit’s app has been pulled from the App Store.

iFixit offered the following statement regarding the situation in a blog post:

Not too long ago, we tore down the Apple TV and Siri Remote. The developer unit we disassembled was sent to us by Apple. Evidently,...

Former Boeing CFO James Bell joins Apple board of...

Apple announced today that James Bell, the former CFO and onetime interim CEO of The Boeing Company, has joined the company's board of directors. Bell was with Boeing for 38 years, overseeing Boeing Capital Corporation and Boeing Shared Services. In 2005, Bell served as the aerospace giant's interim CEO.

Apple CEO Tim Cook commented, "James brings a wealth of global, financial and industrial experience form his successful career at Boeing as corporate president and CFO. I am thrilled to welcome him to the board of directors and I look forward to working with him."

For his part, Bell is an Apple fan, saying "I am an avid user of Apple products and  have a tremendous respect for the company's ability to innovate. I am delighted to join the Apple board and look forward to contributing to its continued success in any way I can." 

Bell joins the board after the departures of Mickey Drexler in March and Bill Campbell last September. Apple's investors have a high...

alphadogg writes: iFixit, the fix-it-yourself advocate for users of Apple, Google and other gear, has had its repair manual app banned from Apple's App Store after it conducted an unauthorized teardown of Apple TV and Siri remote. iFixit blogged "we're a teardown and repair company; teardowns are in our DNA -- and nothing makes us happier than figuring out what makes these gadgets tick. We weighed the risks, blithely tossed those risks over our shoulder, and tore down the Apple TV anyway." iFixit does still have Windows and Android apps, and has no immediate plans to rewrite its Apple app to attempt being reinstated.

Reports indicate this is affecting Apple Music, Apple App Stores (on both iOS and OSX) and are stopping many Telstra customers from getting access to app updates and the much anticipated El Capitan release of OS X. Mobile phone customers as well as home broadband customers seem to be affected at this stage with a large number of posts both on Twitter and the Whirlpool Broadband Forum.

Apple files a patent for an 'Apple Ring'

Apple has given us a watch. Will it give us an Apple Ring? The company has filed an application with the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office for "devices and methods for a ring computing device."

Per the patent, a user controls an external electronic device with a finger-ring-mounted touchscreen that includes a computer processor, wireless transceiver, and rechargeable power source. The ring would have a variety of the features of the Apple Watch.

In the patent filing, Apple notes that the use of touch-sensitive surfaces as input devices for computers and other electronic computing devices has increased significantly in recent years. Many take advantage of touch-sensitive surfaces such as touchpads and touch-screen displays. 

However, Apple says that the use of existing touchpads and touch-screen displays, may be "cumbersome, inconvenient, or inefficient for certain tasks and applications." A user's hands may be preoccupied...

The all-time high for OS X was in October 2013 when it had 7.73%. Windows remains dominant with 90.54% as of September. That's up from 90.84 % in August.

iOS had 38.58% of the mobile operating system market share in September, down from 40.82% in August. This compares to 53.54% for Android, 2.48% for Windows Phone and 1.73% for Java ME, and 1.38% for Symbian. Android was up from 52.54% in August.

Developers aren't rushing to make Apple Watch...

Developer support for the Apple Watch has been met with limited adoption while the benefits afforded to those supporting Apple Watch "remain unclear," according to a report by Strategy Analytics. Even Health & Fitness developers – a category heavily promoted by Apple - are reticent to extend support for Apple Watch across their entire portfolio of apps, notes the research group.

Despite arriving on the platform early, companies like Runtastic, MapMyFitness and Nike haven't extended Apple Watch support to more than 25 percent of their portfolio, according to the report. The most popular category on iPhone -- Games – has seen less than 3% support on Apple Watch among the 200 most popular games, adds Strategy Analytics.

The Gravitas is the heavyweight of iOS docks

Henge-Docks' US$89 Lightning Gravitas is a serious dock for iPhones and iPads. With all-metal construction that weighs in at about 2.5 pounds, this dock is going to stay on your desk.

Despite its heft, it has a small footprint (3 x 3.3 x 2.5 inches). How's that possible? The folks at Henge-Dock says it's due to a metal alloy that's "265% more dense than aluminum."

As you might guess from its name, the Lightning Gravitas is designed to work with iOS devices equipped with a Lightning connector. However, it also sports a USB port for charging and syncing (more on this in a moment), so it will work with just about any iPhone or iPad. I'm not sure about the upcoming iPad Pro and the product website doesn't mention the iPhone 6s or 6s Plus. However, the Gravatis worked just find with my iPhone 6s Plus.

Of course, these devices come in various sizes. That's why the Gravitas comes equipped with inserts...

Hands-on with Disk Utility in El Capitan: Tool for...

Disk Utility hadn’t changed much over the years. The hoary app used for creating logical divisions in disks, applying first aid to ones with data damage, and repairing permissions seemed a thing from a previous age. With El Capitan, Apple has done more than slap on a fresh coat of paint. It has most of the same features, but the interaction and display is entirely different.

Expert users may be frustrated and resort to learning the ins and outs of diskutil, the command-line utility available via Terminal that’s always had more switches and controls than the graphical Disk Utility.

But for many users who need to make quick and rare trips to this software, it could be an improvement: less frightening, easy to use, and harder to make mistakes.

How to use the Activation Lock feature in watchOS 2

To see if Activation Lock is on, open the Watch app on your iPhone, tap the My Watch tab, then tap My Watch. If you see Mark as Missing, then Activation Lock is on. You can also go to and enter your device's serial number. 

If your smartwatch is lost or stolen and Activation Lock is on, you can mark your Apple Watch as missing to stop anyone from reactivating your device without your permission.

Hands-on with Notes 4 in El Capitan

Apple’s Notes is reportedly one of the most popular apps on the Mac. Makes sense, since it comes with every Mac and it syncs between your Macs and iOS devices. It’s a lightweight app good for jotting things down.

I stopped using Notes a long time ago in favor of Evernote. I don’t think I’m going to drop Evernote anytime soon; I have too many notes saved in Evernote to completely abandon it. But I am interested in the new features in Notes 4 to see how it can fit into my workflow.

The opposition defense is significantly smarter about interfering with transferring lanes and intercepting passes, which gives a more earnest challenge (specifically at advanced difficulties) and also backs FIFA 16 off the predecessor's overabundance of big takes on.

Users still must play a really active defense without expecting computer teammates to help up to they do on offense.

But when I recognized the particular CPU building up its attack in the same manner I would, I started bouncing its passing routes, picking over ball without attempting a harmful tackle.
