Official WWDC 2016 invitation emailed to developers

That didn't take long. Just a few short hours after Siri let everyone in on the secret of when WWDC 2016 would take place, developers received the official invitation. A link on the invitation leads to this wonderful registration page:

As noted in the code-like invitation, buying tickets is only possible if a developer registers and is then selected in a random drawing. If you're a dev, get thee to the registration page by Friday for your roll of the dice...

Apple confirms QuickTime for Windows at end of life

I don’t know what this means for Mac users (hopefully, nothing) but it’s sad to see the demise of what, for Apple, was supposed to be its next great platform. Myself and others were encouraged directly by Apple (but behind the scenes) to develop and use QuickTime. Apple sent me a QuickTime Streaming Server (back in the days when there was such a thing) in order for me to broadcast my show using QuickTime 4. But, over the ensuing years, it became obvious that Apple was losing interest in developing QuickTime much further. This issue is yet another sign of that.

Calendar then will sift through their schedules and select the best time to allocate for the task.

World of Warcraft's Legion expansion launches...

If you thought you were safe from the Burning Legion until at least November, well, think again. On Monday, Blizzard announced the latest World of Warcraft expansion, subtitled Legion, will release August 30.

To recap: Legion is basically Burning Crusade Redux, using the time travel malarkey introduced in Warlords of Draenor to retcon the long-running MMO’s first ever expansion and bring fan-favorite Illidan Stormrage back to life. Which is either “Oh, great news!” or “Damn, Blizzard has run out of ideas” depending on your temperament.

There’s also the requisite level bump (up to 110) and a new class, the Demon Hunter, if you’re looking to change things up after a decade of WoW. Also a new never-before-seen location, the Broken Isles, which should please lore fanatics. It’s...well, it’s another World of Warcraft expansion.

News: Siri announces WWDC to be held June 13-17

It appears that Apple has announced the dates for its annual Worldwide Developers Conference through Siri. Asking Siri “When is WWDC?” gets the response, “The Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) will be held June 13 through June 17 in San Francisco.

WWDC 2016 runs June 13-17, according to Siri

Apple hasn't officially announced the dates for this year's Worldwide Developers Conference yet, but Siri seems to blab if you ask. Apple's personal assistant says that WWDC will run from June 13 to June 17 in San Francisco. The location hasn't been confirmed, but the conference has historically been held at the Moscone West event space downtown.

The official WWDC site hasn't been updated with the new information and there's no way to register to buy tickets yet, but if Siri is telling people the date, we'll probably get more information soon.

Last week, a report, citing court documents, claimed that Canadian police have had BlackBerry's global decryption key since 2010. Today BlackBerry CEO John Chen officially commented on the report. In a blog post, Chen reiterated that his company remains committed to doing what is "right for the citizenry," without confirming if the Candian police have the "global encryption key." "I have stated before that we are indeed in a dark place when companies put their reputations above the greater good," Chen wrote, adding that the company's cooperation with the Canadian police resulted in shutting down a criminal organization. He adds: Regarding BlackBerry's assistance, I can reaffirm that we stood by our lawful access principles. Furthermore, at no point was BlackBerry's BES server involved. Our BES continues to be impenetrable -- also without the ability for backdoor access -- and is the most secure mobile platform for managing all mobile devices.

What the Traditional Car Companies Don't Seem...


Two interesting events took place this month. Tesla announced its Model 3, a relatively affordable electric car, and it attracted around 180K preorders on the same day. That was before the company actually revealed the car. There were more than 250K preorders in the first 36 hours. Oh, and the run rate is about 1,500 per hour of pre-orders for this car right now. Ford opened preorders for its new Ford GT, and only 500 people actually will get to buy this $400K car -- and as of right now, you still can order one of those 500.

Apple rebuts DOJ's appeal in N.Y. meth dealer...

Apple last week opposed the Department of Justice’s renewed demand that it assist investigators in accessing a drug dealer’s iPhone, arguing that the government has not proved the company’s help is required.

“The government has utterly failed to satisfy its burden to demonstrate that Apple’s assistance in this case is necessary,” lawyers for the Cupertino company said in a brief (PDF) filed with a federal court in New York on Friday. “The government has made no showing that it has exhausted alternative means for extracting data from the iPhone at issue here, either by making a serious attempt to obtain the passcode from the individual defendant who set it in the first place ... or by consulting other government agencies and third parties known to the government.”

He was battling with cancer. News of his passing popped up on Facebook early this morning and many prominent tech players also confirmed the death to me, which came after a long battle with cancer. It is a big loss for Silicon Valley, given the impact a man who said he did not even know how to do HTML had by virtue of wisdom alone. But he was not without tech chops. Campbell ran companies like Intuit and worked in key jobs at Apple, Claris and Go, and also served on a plethora of boards, including Columbia University, Intuit and Apple.

A host device like a smartphone or PC will first verify the authenticity of the cable, charger or power source before any data is transferred. If everything checks out, a connection will be established.

Sony Corporation has issued an official news release in regards to the status of their manufacturing companies in Japan after the Kumamoto earthquakes. Having confirmed the safety of their employees in the affected regions, Sony has listed out a few details of the manufacturing sites that have been impacted as result of the earthquake.

Sony’s semiconductor factory in Kumamoto, which primarily manufactures image sensors for cameras, had seen its production halted after the earthquake and has yet to be started again. According to Sony, damage to the site is currently being evaluated, but the timeframe for resuming has yet to be confirmed. Sony’s main facility for smartphone image sensors in Nagasaki and its sister-site, Oita Technology Center, had its operations suspended but production had resumed on April 17th.

Recently, Kuo offered a report stating that the iPhone will be seeing a major redesign in 2017, dropping the iconic aluminum casing for an all-glass enclosure with AMOLED screen. This corroborates a previous report offering hints of a fairly radical redesign to be seen in the near term.

Kuo believes that Apple will be moving to an all-glass enclosure, dropping aluminum completely as it will no longer appear modern or fresh in 2017. Apple’s smartphone competitors are also adopting aluminum designs in droves, making it more likely Apple will want to differentiate with entirely new materials.

Kuo did note elaborate as to whether the next-gen...

The Cupertino, California-based company planned to start building the €850 million data center on a 500-acre site before the end of last year, but a decision won't be made until the summer, a local councillor told the publication.

Sony added that operations at its image sensor plant in Nagasaki, also in Kyushu, will be partially suspended and it does not yet have a timeline for full resumption of operations.

Thanks to subscription-based music streaming services, the music industry is seeing a significant growth for the first time in nearly two decades. According to International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI), an industry trade group, the global music sales rose 3.2 percent last year, also surpassing those from all physical music formats. The important tipping point in 2015 saw digital services account for 45 percent of recorded music revenue. According to the report, Spotify, Apple Music and other music streaming services brought in about $2.9 billion in revenue. The findings are in line with Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA)'s estimates from last month. IFPI also noted that music on free streaming services such as YouTube has also grown quickly, creating a panic among record labels and artists alike. Billboard elaborates that aspect: In criticizing ad-supported services, the IFPI joined a growing list of trade bodies and music company executives to...

HP wants to turn your Mac into a 44-core Windows PC

If your Mac isn’t fast enough to edit 3D video, HP has a workaround to make it possible.

HP’s new remote graphics tool will allow Mac users to tap into the massive computing power of HP Z workstations, which can have up to 44 CPU cores.

The Remote Graphics Software (RGS) turns the Mac into a remote desktop tuned for graphics. A “sender” plugin on the HP Z links to a receiver on the Mac, allowing the computers to share screens and applications. 

“HP is upgrading your Mac,” said Christian Jones, worldwide product manager for remote desktop software at HP.

The Mac receiver is being released as HP announces new workstations with the latest CPUs and GPUs. The high-end HP Z840, equipped with Intel E5-2600 v4 chips and Nvidia Quadro GPUs, can outperform any Mac.

TrendForce: iPhone sales unlikely to see turn-around...

In a new report, TrendForce reports that the worldwide smartphone shipments in the first quarter of 2016 totaled 292 million units, down 18.6% from the previous quarter and a year-on-year decline of 1.3%. The decrease was mainly attributed to market saturation. 

Leading brands such as Apple and Samsung no longer have the same growth momentum as before, so the overall shipments depended on contributions from Chinese brands and rising demand in India and other emerging markets, according to the global market research firm. Avril Wu, TrendForce smartphone analyst, said the combined shipments (including exports) from Chinese brands in the first quarter reached 125 million units, surpassing the combined shipments from Apple and Samsung for the first time. Chinese brands accounted for 42.9% of the global smartphone shipments, up from 41.5% in the previous quarter.

For those in the United States who have trouble with the yearly pricing, Amazon is now offering two monthly subscription options: just Amazon Prime Instant Video for $8.99 (a dollar less than Netflix’s most popular plan) or the full Amazon Prime service for $10.99 per month. However, neither option is preferable to the $99 per-year price, which equals $8.25 per month.

Magna specialises in making limited-edition models for major car manufacturers, having made the Mini Paceman and Clubman for BMW, as well as the BMW X3. It is expected to make over 100,000 vehicles for BMW over the next 6-7 years …

Hackers use Congressman’s iPhone to demo ability to...

Apple may take iOS security so seriously that it’s willing to do battle with the FBI over it, but German hackers have demonstrated that all phones – even iPhones – are susceptible to a mobile network vulnerability that requires nothing more than knowing your phone number. Armed with just that, hackers can listen to your calls, read your texts and track your position.

60 Minutes invited the hackers to prove their claims by giving a brand new iPhone to Congressman Ted Lieu – who agreed to participate in the test – and telling the hackers nothing more than the phone number. The hackers later replayed recordings they’d made of calls made on that iPhone …

Rumors of Apple’s entrance into the video streaming arena have been swirling for a couple of years now, with Apple wanting to launch a skinny bundle streaming internet cable TV service, however news on the progress of this project has died down in 2016. It is unclear if it is still on the cards, various outlets reports talked had stalled with the television networks. However, Amazon and Netflix continue to battle it out.

Google's Android N OS Will Support Pressure-...

An anonymous reader writes: In the latest Developer Preview 2 of Android N, Google introduced new "Launcher shortcuts" to the beta OS. It allows developers to "define shortcuts which users can expose in the launcher to help them perform actions quicker." It's reminiscent of Apple's "3D Touch" feature found in the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, which can allow for specific parts of an app to be displayed in a pop-up menu when users forcefully press on an icon or other miscellaneous piece of information developed with the feature.

As mentioned in Phandroid's report testing the "setDynamicShortcuts(List)" feature, Google offered four different scenarios where Launcher Shortcuts make sense: Navigating users to a particular location in a mapping app, sending messages to a friend in a communication app, playing the next episode of a TV show in a media app, or loading the last save point in a gaming app.
"Google says that the manufacturers who build Android devices wanted this...

MacBooks (and iBooks and PowerBooks before them) have never been renowned for their repairability, but post-2010 MacBook Air models have been particularly bad. RAM is soldered to the motherboard. Drives use proprietary connections. The Retina MacBook has no user-serviceable parts on the motherboard, which is so tightly integrated that it’s more like an iPad motherboard than a Mac.

KGI: Apple to drop aluminum iPhone casing in 2017 in...

In a new report by KGI’s Ming-Chi Kuo, the reliable Apple analyst claims that the iPhone will be seeing a major redesign in 2017, dropping the iconic aluminum casing for an all-glass enclosure with AMOLED screen. This follows on from another of Kuo’s reports in late March, where he first suggested Apple will return to an iPhone design akin to the iPhone 4. It does not seem like the iPhone 7 for 2016 will be seeing such a major overhaul, breaking Apple’s tick-tock pattern of a significant chassis redesign every other generation.

Kuo believes that Apple will be moving to an all-glass enclosure, dropping aluminum completely as it will no longer appear modern or fresh in 2017. Apple’s smartphone competitors are also adopting aluminum designs in droves, making it more likely Apple will want to differentiate with entirely new materials.

Snowden Predicts Global iPhone Hack, Records Song

Edward Snowden criticized the FBI for leaving open security holes found in the iPhone, predicting the hack will now become globally available by the end of 2016. "Personally, I think we'll see it by the end of August," he wrote to his two million followers on Twitter, where one British newspaper reports Snowden was also "recently invited into a Twitter private group chat with a lot of teenage girls who didn't know who he was." (Snowden asked them to call him "Ed," and warned them that if they messaged him, the NSA would read their messages.) Friday Snowden also tweeted a 2013 article about the U.C. Davis police officer who used pepper spray on protesters, writing that the officer was later awarded $38,000 "for his 'pain and suffering'." But Snowden has also been collaborating with French electronic musician Jean-Michel Jarre, contributing samples of his voice to a six-minute track to be included on an upcoming album. "Technology can actually increase privacy," Snowden says on the...

Computers running QuickTime are open to increased risk of malicious attack or data loss, US-CERT warned, and remote attackers could take control of a victim's computer system.

Apple Expects Users To Replace Their iPhone, Apple...

Apple says it expects its users to replace their iPhone and Apple Watch after (more like, every) three years. The company adds that it expects a Mac user to replace their computer after four years. The iPhone maker shared the expectations in a recently released document as part of its latest environmental push. In the document, Apple underscores how much its products contribute to the greenhouse gas lifecycle. The Guardian reports: Within a new question and answer section Apple said: "Years of use, which are based on first owners, are assumed to be four years for OS X and tvOS devices and three years for iOS and watchOS devices." That assessment doesn't take into account the recycling of devices, their reconditioning and their resale, of course, but when you buy a new iPhone 6S for $649 (starting price, off-contract), Apple expects it to last three years, something many suspected. Apple has been accused of intentionally slowing down iPhones every time a new one is released,...

Apple asks judge to deny DOJ’s latest iPhone...

On Friday Apple asked a New York federal judge to reject the U.S. Justice Department's latest attempt to force the company to unlock an iPhone, saying the government has "utterly failed" to prove it needs such unusual technical support.

As noted by The Mercury News, Apple's lawyers renewed their defense of the company's need to protect the security of iPhone users. The attorneys accused the FBI of seeking to force Apple to unlock a smartphone in a Brooklyn drug case solely to set precedent across the country that threatens its strong encryption in iPhones.

Apple also maintains the Justice Department's request is questionable since the FBI initially insisted it needed Apple to unlock an iPhone in the the San Bernardino shooter case, then ditched the request when it it worked around Apple’s lack of cooperation.

Federal prosecutors in Brooklyn want a court order to require Apple to...

To help raise money for the relocation of the prestigious London Design Museum, Apple has submitted a very special lot to be sold at auction. Jony Ive has designed a one-of-a-kind iPad Pro and set of accessories, labelled ‘Edition 1 of 1’. The lot includes a 12.9 inch iPad Pro with a custom yellow-gold anodised finish, a blue leather Smart Cover and an Apple Pencil case cover — an accessory that Apple doesn’t sell at all today. It’s a small carry case for the Pencil, made with orange Italian calf leather. To denote the exclusivity of the products, an ‘Edition 1 of 1’ label has been engraved into the iPad Pro and underside of the Smart Cover.

Given its special edition nature, the auction is expected to sell for a tidy premium over Apple’s normal iPad Pro pricing …

An anonymous reader writes: Apple released its latest annual environmental report yesterday with numbers detailing how much the company has been able to recover from old devices. Business Insider notes that Apple was able to recover over 61 million pounds of steel, aluminum, glass, and other materials from its computers and iPhones. This includes a total of 2,204 pounds of gold worth $40 million at current prices ($1,229.80 per troy ounce of gold). Cult of Mac ran the figures quoted by Apple through today's metal prices, and came up with individual figures for copper ($6.4 million), aluminum ($3.2 million), silver ($1.6 million), nickel ($160,426), zinc ($109,503), and lead ($33,999). Last month, Apple unveiled an iPhone recycling robot, named Liam, that salvages old parts.
