Apple was of course first to deliver a MacBook with only USB-C ports. Not that everyone was happy about that shift; in fact the critics hammered Apple for that "innovation." The cover of the WSJ story mocked the move, as noted in the graphic in our report. Now Intel is bringing this solution to the PC World via Thunderbolt 3. Dan Riccio, Apple’s senior vice president of Hardware Engineering said that "Apple and Intel have collaborated on Thunderbolt from the beginning ...

Apple Watch Proves Most Accurate at Measuring Heart...

In a new study comparing the accuracy of seven different fitness trackers, the Apple Watch was found to have the lowest margin of error when measuring heart rate, beating the Basis Peak, Fitbit Surge, Microsoft Band, Mio Alpha 2, PulseOn, and Samsung Gear S2.

Researchers set out to determine the accuracy of wrist-worn devices at measuring both heart rate and energy expenditure, aka calories burned via physical activity. 60 volunteers participated, including 29 males and 31 females, each of whom wore several fitness trackers and completed activities like cycling, running, and walking.

Data gathered by the fitness devices was compared against a "gold standard" tracking method, which included an electrocardiograph (ECG) for measuring heart rate and clinical grade indirect calorimetry (measuring oxygen and carbon dioxide expelled when breathing) for measuring calories burned. An error rate of 5 percent was determined...

Legal action has now spread to multiple class action cases in three different states.

Unsurprisingly, Samsung’s crappy iris scanner on the Galaxy S8 has been defeated. Worse, defeating it is easy. Bryan and Jeff think it’s a joke and another example of Samsung’s delusions of relevance. They also discuss Bryan’s theory that PC makers can’t compete with Apple’s MacBook with me-too design, and say that surveillance capitalists being honest about spying on your doesn’t make their spying OK.

The Telegraph’s 93 Second Primer Steve Jobs’s Career

London newspaper The Telegraph published a quickie biography of Steve Jobs on Wednesday. The 2,100 piece is titled, “Who was Steve Jobs? Tech trailblazer and co-founder of the Apple empire.”  goes in-depth for a newspaper article, but it’s still a short look into a person like Steve Jobs’s entire life. It’s probably perfect for someone who’s curious about Steve Jobs, but hasn’t delved deep into all things Apple. Accompanying the written piece was a 93 second video that runs  through Steve Jobs’s career with slides, information, and other highlights. Again, there’s little new for hardcore fans, but both the article and the video are excellent primers for anyone who’s been curious about the late Steve Jobs.

Safari vs. Chrome on the Mac

Eric Petitt, writing for The Official Unofficial Firefox Blog yesterday:

I head up Firefox marketing, but I use Chrome every day. Works
fine. Easy to use. Like most of us who spend too much time in
front of a laptop, I have two browsers open; Firefox for work,
Chrome for play, customized settings for each. There are multiple
things that bug me about the Chrome product, for sure, but I‘m OK
with Chrome. I just don’t like only being on Chrome. […]

But talking to friends, it sounds more and more like living on
Chrome has started to feel like their only option. Edge is broken.
Safari and Internet Explorer are just plain bad. And
unfortunately, too many people think Firefox isn’t a modern
alternative.

In an update posted today, he walked that back:

Watch the Game of Thrones Season 7 Trailer

OK, Game of Thrones fans, war is nigh. HBO released the trailer for Game of Thrones Season 7, which will first air on July 16th, 2017. The show outpaced the books during Season 6, leaving many fans all the hungrier to know what happens. Judging by the trailer, what happens is war, war, battles, dragons, war, and a side of war thrown in just for fun. In fact, the closing line of the trailer is, “The great war is hear,” and if I’m not mistaken, it’s one Jon Snow saying it. But hey, I could be wrong. Enjoy!

Review: Marshall Monitor Black Bluetooth Headphones

You know Marshall guitar amplifiers. If you’re a fan of music, you know what Marshall’s iconic amps look like and you have definitely heard them. The company is so much a part of music history that it's surprising that they only recently launched a line of headphones. Marshall’s headphone lineup is fairly extensive, with a range of in-ear, on-ear, over-ear, and wireless cans all bearing the Marshall brand. The newest entry into this lineup is Marshall’s Monitor Black Bluetooth over-ear, priced at $249. While they sound good enough to carry the Marshall name, some aspects of their design detract from the experience.

New iPhone 8 Dummy Video Surfaces as Third-Party...

Though we're only four months away from the presumed launch of the "iPhone 8," we haven't seen any part leaks for the much-rumored OLED device nor have we seen parts for the two standard LCD iPhones that are said to accompany it.

With a lack of part leaks, we're relying on dummy units, design drawings, and design renders to give us an idea of what to expect from the device, and there's been no shortage of those leaks, many of which are somewhat confusing due to the fact that Apple tested several iPhone 8 prototypes.

This week, the first hands-on video featuring an alleged iPhone 8 dummy model surfaced. We already saw the dummy model in question in photographs back in April, but the video provides a better look at the device, and perhaps a better picture of what the iPhone 8 might look like if accurate.

This particular dummy device, said to be a CNC model, aligns with...

The focus of the film is a reunion show with The Bad Boy Family, the original group of artists that launched with Bad Boy Records. According to the Tribecka Festivail, “the film also looks back to trace the label’s emergence in Harlem and Brooklyn, it’s meteoric rise, the tragic killing of Biggie Smalls, and the lasting influence on music, fashion, marketing and culture.” Note Apple executive Jimmy Iovine’s brief appearance in the trailer. The film debuts exclusively on Apple Music on June 25th, 2017.

That program now includes an "Apple Store" where those miles can be redeemed for Apple gear.

It's not just Apple Watches, iPhones and iPads -- the entire Mac lineup, AirPods, and a lot of Apple accessories are on that site as well (no third party products, including Beats headphones).

Intel also revealed plans to integrate Thunderbolt 3 into its future CPUs, but it didn't provide a timeline as to when. The all-in-one design will take up less space on a Mac or PC's logic board, and reduce power consumption by eliminating the need for a standalone Thunderbolt controller.“Apple and Intel have collaborated on Thunderbolt from the beginning,...

Apple announces ‘App Development with Swift’

Apple has served up App Development with Swift, a free course available as an iBooks course at the iBookStore. It's a year-long program geared towards helping people "design fully functional apps, gaining critical job skills in software development and information technology," according to Apple.

Touted as safe, fast, and expressive, Swift appeals to developers who are aiming to build on Apple’s multiple platforms, such as iOS, macOS, tvOS and watchOS. About three years ago Apple announced that it would replace its "ancient" native mobile app development language Objective-C by its newborn language called Swift. 

According to AppleInsider, in the fall, six colleges will begin teaching the iBooks material: the Alabama Community College System, Columbus State Community College, Harrisburg Area Community College, Houston...

∞ The new Microsoft Surface Pro: What that $799...

Microsoft just rolled out the latest and greatest version of its Surface tablet/laptop hybrid, branded as the Surface Pro. Here’s a link to the official Surface Pro product page.

Much has been made about the Surface Pro’s price of $799. But what do you get for your money?

The $799 Surface Pro ships with:

  • Intel® Core™ m3 processor
  • 128GB SSD
  • 4GB RAM
  • Intel® HD Graphics 615

That’s a pretty bare-bones machine. Apple’s cheapest machine (the $999 MacBook Air) comes with 8GB of RAM. I can’t imagine using a modern version of Windows or macOS with less than 8GB. Let’s tweak that so we can compare apples with Apples.

Bumping the Surface Pro to a minimally livable (in my opinion) 8GB brings the price to $1299. There’s just no cheaper way to get to...

Last November, the Federal Circuit issued a “quick shutdown” Monday of Samsung’s bid for a rehearing of the full court’s October decision reinstating a jury’s $120 million patent infringement verdict in favor of Apple, shrugging off Samsung’s contention the ruling had been “extraordinary.”

A California jury found in 2014 that Samsung's smartphones infringed three Apple patents on the slide-to-unlock function, autocorrect features and "quick links" technology. The...

Apple’s head of Worldwide Human Resources Denise Young Smith will now run diversity programs for the company under a newly created VP position, according to sources familiar with the move. The executive shuffle will see the creation of a new VP role for Apple’s Inclusion and Diversity team with Smith reporting directly to CEO Tim Cook. Sources say Smith has long had a passion for diversity initiatives at the company and the newly created position reflects an increased focus on the company’s efforts.

And:

Smith has been at Apple for over 20 years and was first promoted to VP of worldwide HR back in 2014 from her previous role as head of HR for just Apple’s retail stores, a role that Steve Jobs handpicked her for during the early days of Apple’s retail efforts.

1Password receives update, now offers “Travel Mode”...

This could come in handy.

Following an update pushed out last week, 1Password now includes a new feature that lets users selectively erase local data for maximum protection while traveling.

The new “Travel Mode” feature erases all vaults/user profiles with the exception of those marked “safe for travel” from devices connected to a 1Password account. Users can later restore their full list of vaults with another click once they arrive.

In previous versions, users worried about unwarranted searches or device theft would have to sign out of their 1Password account on each device in order to erase locally stored data. On top of this, they would have to create a dedicated travel account, sign back in, then sign out and sign back into their accounts upon reaching their destination.

With Travel Mode, users can mark vaults as “safe for travel” from the 1Password.com web interface. When the feature is activated from the web, all vaults save for those marked...

Apple looks to be edging closer to 5G.

Per Business Insider, the company is testing next-gen 5G data speeds via a wireless technology called “millimeter wave” which could ultimately improve cellular performance for iPhones and other connected devices.

Apple has apparently been granted an application by the FCC for an experimental license to test the new 5G wireless technology.

The application allows Apple to test the new technology from two locations in California including one near its current 1 Infinite Loop headquarters in Cupertino and the other in nearby Milpitas, CA.

It’s also been noted that the application states that it believes that testing will take no longer than one year. As such, this indicates that Apple has no plans to ship a 5G feature in any products shipping in 2017.

Separately, cellular network providers would need to support 5G network speeds. T-Mobile has laid out its roadmap for supporting 5G in the future while AT&T...

Future Mac laptops could have more flexible displays

Future iPhones may not be the only Apple device with more flexible displays. Apple has been granted a patent (number 9660,004) for “flexible displays with a strengthened pad area” that may apply to Mac laptops.

In the patent filing, Apple notes that it can be challenging to form displays for electronic devices. Displays have active areas formed from arrays of display pixels. Inactive border regions surround the active regions. The inactive border region in a display contains support circuitry such as signal lines and thin-film transistor circuitry but does not contain active pixels for producing images for a user. 

Apple says that, in order to reduce the apparent size of the inactive border region, it may be desirable to use a flexible substrate in forming the display. This allows portions of the inactive border region to be bent out of sight, reducing the size of the visible inactive display border and enhancing the appearance of the display. 

However, making...

IFTTT Adds Maker Tier

IFTTT has been a wonderful way for those tinkering with the "Internet of Things" (IoT) to create their own automations by linking together services and devices to form "applets." Those services are developed by developers for the many IFTTT partners, and effective today IFTTT will be expanding the availability of its development tools to a new class of developers -- Makers.

Up to this point, anyone could build IFTTT applets that worked with two IFTTT services that a user was connected to -- for example, IF Apple's share price goes over $175 per share, THEN send a text message. Makers will have expanded capabilities:

  • Publish their Applets for other users to turn on. Makers will have a public profile page where they can showcase their creations.

  • Build Applets that work with any service on IFTTT. For example, a Maker would not have to have a connected BMW in order to...

Getting Serious About Teen Smartphone Addiction


Parents don't need a poll to tell them their teenagers are addicted to smartphones. After all, smartphones are a permanent fixture rather than accessories for kids of all ages these days. Even so, polls move these everyday observances from anecdotal to official problem when the numbers tilt in that direction -- and a Common Sense Media poll hit full tilt. The fact that 59 percent of parents said their teens were addicted to mobile devices was not surprising. However, the fact that 50 percent of teens admitted they were addicted was shocking.

Sony PlayStation VR dominated the US market with just over 60% share. It capitalized on its installed base of gaming devices, as well as its lower-cost headsets. Demand in the Japanese VR market meant that a total of 81,000 VR headsets were shipped in Japan. This was largely contributed by Sony, which conquered its home market with 90% market share.

How to help ease eye fatigue from the online life

I suffer from dry eyes. Working on my Mac for long periods of time only exacerbates the situation. Many of us spend an enormous amount of time on our digital devices. In fact, The Vision Council reports that nine out of 10 adults spend more than two hours a day using a digital device and that one in 10 people spends a whopping three-fourths of their waking hours doing so. 

All that screen time can cause digital eye strain, which in turn, can lead to a host of other symptoms. Most people think of eye strain as simply discomfort that happens when looking at things up close such as reading books or using the computer. However, Dora Sztipanovits Mathe, assistant professor in Clinical Ophthalmology and Visual Science with the Vanderbilt Eye Institute in Nashville, TN, says that “Less obviously, but not less commonly, you can have symptoms...

German hackers have successfully broken the iris recognition authentication in the Samsung Galaxy S8 using equipment that costs less than the price of the smartphone, according to ArsTechnica.

The hack involved taking a picture of the phone owner's face, printing it out on paper, carefully placing the contact lens on the iris in the printout, and holding the image in front of the locked Galaxy S8.

The video shown above was posted by the hackers to demonstrate the process in action. The photo doesn't have to be a close-up shot, although using night-shot mode or removing the infrared filter helps, according to...

In a previous tutorial we showed you how to create a macOS Boot Camp partition for installing Windows 10 on a MacBook Pro. The process, while not difficult, can be slightly time consuming, especially if you have a slow Internet connection for downloading Windows 10.

Outside of the time it takes, another downside associated with creating a Boot Camp partition is that it can take up a significant amount of space on your primary drive. Since some Macs are fairly limited when it comes to internal storage space, having a large Boot Camp partition can make it tricky to manage storage space in macOS.

In this follow-up tutorial, we show you how to remove the Boot Camp partition from your Mac, which allows your primary macOS partition to reclaim its space. Unlike the Boot Camp creation + Windows 10 installation process, removing a Boot Camp partition couldn’t be...

There’s a $399 3D Printer on Kickstarter

3D printing is poised to be affordable by a lot more people, and there’s a project on Kickstarter speaking to this trend. It’s called Neva, and it’s a $399 3D printer from established 3D printer manufacturer Dagoma. Actually, there are $299 Early Bird pledge level available as of this writing that will net you a Neva, but the retail price for the device is set at $399. In addition to being inexpensive, it’s designed to be operated with just one button. They’re also made in California, and the bases themselves are 3D printed. The video below is a tad weird in that the narrator tells you lots of things and then says, “but we won’t” tell you that thing. It’s interesting anyway. The project blew past its funding goal of $50,000 in a few hours (earning more than $10,000 in pledges while I wrote this Cool Stuff Found). That speaks to the desire that many people have to be able to 3D print on their own desk.

On the other hand, unsettling political news is also having an adverse affect on the US dollar, creating an unanticipated side effect: a more favorable currency exchange environment for Apple's foreign earnings.

Which iPhone upgrade program is the best?

While Apple has a relatively small number of iPhone variants to choose from compared to many smartphone manufacturers, the amount of ways to buy an iPhone can be overwhelming. With most carriers in the U.S. moving away from two-year contracts and subsidized devices, full-price or installment plans are the primary ways to purchase an iPhone.

Since all installment plans or iPhone upgrade programs from the major U.S. carriers and Apple offer 0% interest, these options can be a good fit for a lot of consumers. While many of these plans are relatively similar, they all have their differences. Follow along for a detailed breakdown to find out which iPhone upgrade program is best for you.

Anker's faster-charging 10,000mAh power bank is...

With spring’s rain (and snow...) finally clearing up, we can once again start spending time outdoors. There’s no reason to let your tiny cellphone battery hold you back from enjoying the sunshine, either—not when Amazon is offering Anker’s PowerCore Speed 10000 power bank for $27. That’s just two dollars more than its lowest price ever on the site, and overall a good deal for a 10,000mAh portable charger.

The PowerCore Speed 10000 is very similar to its plain PowerCore 10000 counterpart, but as its name implies, it supports faster charging. The Speed 10000 has a maximum output of 3 amps (versus the standard PowerCore 10000’s 2.4A), and it also supports Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0. However, the battery pack’s maximum input is capped at 2A, which means that you’ll have to wait awhile for it to fully recharge. (Total time varies between 5.5 and 6 hours.) You also get only one port for...

SoftRAID 5.6 with Easy Setup released for macOS

OWC Holdings, a division of OWC, has launched SoftRAID 5.6, an upgrade of the RAID software featuring SoftRAID Easy Setup­. The feature is designed to make it easy to create a RAID system (redundant array of independent disks) from scratch to keep your files protected against disk failure and achieve faster data access. 

SoftRAID’s Easy Setup guides less technical users through the process of creating SoftRAID volumes, automating the process of configuring disks and making recommendations to help users setup their SoftRAID system. All users have to do is decide what the RAID volume will be used for and how much space to use (with hints from the application) -- SoftRAID Easy Setup does the rest.

Additional new features in SoftRAID include the ability to monitor USB and FireWire disks for failure and impending failure and translation to Simplified Chinese (for both the application and documentation), in addition to the 5 other languages SoftRAID already supports:...

Apple is testing a next-generation wireless technology dubbed “millimeter wave” that could potentially radically increase the speed and bandwidth of a cellular connection, according to Business Insider.

Millimeter wave, which is also known as extremely high frequency (EHF)  or very high frequency (VHF) by the International Telecommunications Union (ITU), can be used for high-speed wireless broadband communications. Millimeter wave is an undeveloped band of spectrum that can be used in a broad range of products and services like high speed, point-to-point wireless local area networks (WLANs) and broadband access. In telecommunications, millimeter wave is used for a variety of services on mobile and wireless networks, as it allows for higher data rates up to 10 Gbps.

External Link: Unrelated Supreme Court Decision...

Since the 1990s, the Eastern District of Texas has been the preferred hunting ground for patent trolls. Judges in that district have been friendly to those who hold patents they never intend to use outside of litigation, so nearly 45 percent of patent infringement suits were filed there in 2015. But thanks to a unanimous Supreme Court ruling, the Eastern District of Texas’s time in the patent litigation limelight may be coming to an end. In TC Heartland v. Kraft Foods Group Brands, the Supreme Court ruled that defendants should face patent litigation in the state in which they’re incorporated. For instance, if you wanted to sue Apple or many other tech companies for patent infringement, you’d have to do so in California. Courts in other states won’t be as friendly to patent trolls, so this seemingly unrelated Supreme Court decision may have the side effect of reducing frivolous patent lawsuits.

Feature Request: iPad Workouts Dashboard for Apple...

I sometimes use my iPad at the gym to watch videos or read iBooks to pass time while exercising with the elliptical or treadmill. The tablet form factor is sleek and doesn’t draw attention to itself, and the iPad usually lays over whatever screen the gym equipment offers.

This works well because I usually ignore the heart rate trackers and progress indicators on exercise equipment and just rely on my Apple Watch for workout data. I glance at my wrist to check my progress and view metrics while using the iPad for entertainment.

Over the weekend I used a hotel gym that offered exercise machines with large screens and an easy-to-use interface, however, that made me think of how the iPad could be used for more…

Review: Mytek Brooklyn Digital-to-Analog Converter

Some years ago, the electronics market could be cleanly divided into "professional" and "consumer" gear. Consumer devices were cheaper and prettier, but their pro counterparts did more and were more reliable. Consumers then started to develop a taste for pro-level gadgets, regardless of whether they "needed" the extra power. Manufacturers responded by creating a new class of device — the "prosumer" model — which has grown in popularity to the point that nobody really questions whether high school kids "need" Macbook Pros. The Brooklyn DAC from MyTek is a little like the Macbook Pro in that it is well-designed, feature-packed, beautiful, and expensive. We think it's awesome.

Chris Murphy, writing for CNN back in 2013 on the “greatest James Bond scene of all time”:

Despite this wealth of choice, a series of Bond experts, and one

scene should be anointed the best ever.

And given the recurring role that skiing has played throughout the
life of Bond, it should comes as no surprise our panel’s chosen
encounter occurs on the slopes. “I would argue the most iconic
sequence is in ‘The Spy Who Loved Me’, when Bond shot straight off
the edge of a cliff at Baffin Island in Canada,” Ajay Chowdhury,
editor of the James Bond International Fan Club, told CNN.

How to make toast using OneNote

Today’s post was written by Cathy Quigan, Digital Learning Technology teacher at Sacred Heart Girls’ College.

I teach Digital Technologies from Year 8 to Year 13 at a girls’ high school with 700 students. As part of the curriculum, I teach everything from basic document formatting and spreadsheets to programming, web and game design. I try to give the students a broad base of skills, so each year focuses on a different project of the student’s choice. At the beginning of the year we discuss issues that are relevant to them—such as how the work that they do is recognized by the school—and we come up with ways we can address these issues using IT skills. The solutions are always varied, so that at any given year level, I can be teaching up to three very different sets of skills.

In addition, due to the lack of students choosing technology as a subject, I have several classes with different year levels in the same computer lab, at the same time. For example, in...

Nokia Uses Lawsuit To Make Apple Its Friend

Apple has settled a patent dispute with Finnish telecom equipment maker Nokia and agreed to buy more of its network products and services. The deal means Nokia will get bigger royalties from Apple for using its mobile phone patents, helping offset the impact of waning demand for its mobile network hardware. Nokia's shares were up by seven percent following the announcement. WSJ puts things into perspective: Nokia's deal with Apple follows a highly unusual playbook: using a lawsuit to win business from your adversary (could be paywalled). When the first iPhone was unveiled a decade ago, Apple became a major competitor to the Finnish group, which was then the world's leading mobile-phone maker. As Nokia's business dwindled, the companies became legal antagonists. Now they are set to become business partners. The settlement announced Tuesday involves Apple paying Nokia a lump sum plus royalties for each device it sells using Nokia's technology. This is broadly the same kind of...

AWT TV Episode 9: May 22, 2017

Welcome to AWT TV, a weekly show featuring Steve Sande, Dennis Sellers and Marty Edwards of Apple World Today. Each week we'll discuss what's happened in the world of Apple, talk about new apps and accessories, maybe even have a demonstration or two of the latest software. 

The title of this episode: Pippin's Lament

Steve's male cat Pippin decided to join in on the conversation during the recording of AWT TV, so you will hear a cat "talking" in the background during the show. 

Topics covered during the show (two weeks before Apple's World Wide Developers Conference in San Jose, CA):

• The rather unimpressive announcements made at Google's IO 2017
• Why Google Assistant won't replace Siri on iOS anytime soon
• What new hardware we think we'll see at WWDC 2017 (new MacBooks, new 10.5-inch iPad Pro, Siri Speaker)
• Will Apple's "Project Titan" really be an advanced version of CarPlay that can autonomously drive vehicles that...

Opinion: Is Microsoft leading Apple in PC innovation...

9to5Mac founder Seth Weintraub tweeted this morning a suggestion that Microsoft was hitting all the laptop checkboxes of late – and that Apple will not.

Microsoft continues to hit the laptop checkboxes that Apple refuses to: Touchscreen, LTE, Cray battery life, etc

Will Apple respond? (No)

— Seth Weintraub (@llsethj) May 23, 2017

Others noted that Microsoft has held its third event this year, and second this month, while we still await the first Apple event of the year. Does this mean that Microsoft is leading the way in innovation at present, and Apple is being left behind – or is the Seattle-based company engaging in meaningless gimmickry … ?

Forget rumors about the “iPhone 8” (which has yet to be unveiled). Those are borrrring. Let’s talk about 2018’s “iPhone 8.” According to a new rumor next year’s Apple smartphone will come in 5.28-inch and 6.46-inch sizes.

Yep. 6.46 inches. Keep in mind that the iPhone 7 Plus is “only” 5.5 inches. Talk about your iPhone Pro! The Sellers Research Firm (that’s me) says there’s 0%  chance this will happen.

Apple's updated Android 'Switch'...

Apple and Android may forever be locked in a fight for mobile domination, but they take very different approaches to their quest for market share. On the one hand, there are more than 2 billion active Android devices in use around the world. On the other, Apple makes gobs of money from selling just a handful of handsets.

But like the PC wars of the 90s, Apple isn’t content with such a slim slice of the market. While it has had a Move to iOS app in the Play Store for a while now, Apple is now taking the fight directly to Android users with a new campaign devoted to switching.
