Apple wants to remove your skeleton (well, from a...

Yesterday, I reported that Apple had filed for a second patent for a “scanning depth engine” that generates 3D profiles. The tech giant has also been granted a patent (number 9,898,651) for “upper body skeleton extraction from depth maps,” which would facilitate gesture controls on a Mac or an Apple TV.

A "depth map" refers to a representation of a scene as a two-dimensional matrix of pixels. They can be processed in order to segment and identify objects in the scene. Identification of humanoid forms (meaning 3D shapes whose structure resembles that of a human being) in a depth map, and changes in these forms from scene to scene, can be used as a means for controlling computer applications. 

An example would be a computer-implemented method in which a depth map is segmented so as to find a contour of a humanoid body. The...

Failure of Pixel 2 exposed a larger problem: Google...




Across 2017, Google heavily promoted its Pixel phone brand. Despite being lauded as being "the world's most valuable brand" and its status as the world's largest purveyor of advertising, all of Google's global efforts, including DoubleClick and YouTube, resulted in inconsequential Pixel sales. Worse than its failure to sell hardware is the fact that Google has proven that its advertising simply isn't very effective.

Notable apps and app updates for Feb. 21, 2018

On a regular basis, Apple World Today posts a 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.

macOS Apps/Updates

AKVIS has updated eight of its artistic programs available as plugins and standalone applications: AirBrush, Charcoal, Draw, OilPaint, Pastel, Points, Sketch, and Watercolor. 

The new versions offer the updated Texture Library, new Random Patterns frame, some interface changes, and other improvements. Each program can be purchased individually or in AKVIS Artistic Bundle at half price for a limited time. They’re compatible with macOS 10.7 or higher.

Australian carrier Telstra acknowledges FaceTime,...

If you’re a wireless customer in Australia, this is not a nifty thing.

Telstra, one of Australia’s largest mobile carriers, is experiencing a widespread outage of iMessage and FaceTime services. Oddly enough, this outage only seems to affect Apple’s services, as everything else functions normally. The carrier has confirmed the outage on Twitter and says it is working on a fix.

At this point, it’s unknown as to when a fix will be available. The issue appears to primarily be affecting the eastern coast of Australia, though users in Perth are also reporting issues.

As the outage continues, Telstra has encouraged its users to send all of their iMessages as traditional SMS texts.

The company has also offered the following statement:

Our team are working to fix an issue with Apple iMessage and Facetime for some customers. You can continue to send and receive SMS messages. We’ll provide an update ASAP.

If you press and hold on the message that...

Alto’s Odyssey now available on iPhone, iPad and...

Sequel to the hit title Alto’s Adventure, Alto’s Odyssey is now available in the App Store ($4.99) for iPhone, iPad and Apple TV … a day earlier than planned. The game went up for preorder earlier this month with a Feb 22nd date, but it’s definitely downloadable right now.

I’ve been testing the game for the last few weeks and it really is a beautiful sequel to the original game. Endless runners tend to be generic, dull and almost algorithmic. Alto’s Odyssey is the opposite with rich music and visuals and an incredibly engaging progression of missions and tasks, as well as the endless quest of getting an ever-higher score for the run. The game shines on the iPhone X’s wide-aspect ratio display.

Apple files for updated trademark for classic...

The ever-classic rainbow Apple logo may be making a comeback, though it’s unlikely to be placed on any computers. The company filed for a new trademark to use the logo on hats and other headgear.

Apple already sells t-shirts with the old logo, so this new trademark filing is a hint that hats and caps may be on the way. Alternately, it could be a move to keep people from making knock-off products.

The rainbow Apple logo was originally designed in 1977 when company co-founders Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak were creating the Apple II computer. Apple continued to use the rainbow logo until 1997, when it switched over to the single-color logo used today.

Apple has yet to say what it plans to do with the rainbow logo, though it’s expected to show up at the Apple Park Campus visitor center.

Stay tuned for additional details as they become available.

Samsung To Cut OLED Production Due To Poor iPhone X...

Samsung's panel-making division, Samsung Display, is reportedly reducing OLED panel production at its South Chungcheong plant due to lower than expected iPhone X sales. According to Nikkei Asian Review, Samsung now plans to cover 20 million or fewer iPhone X devices for the quarter ending in March, a large decrease from the expected 45 to 50 million units. CNET reports: Apple sold 77.3 million iPhones in the quarter ending in January, down by 1 percent on the previous year. The $1,000 price tag on the iPhone X was blamed for the volume shortfall -- but also contributed to the company making record-breaking profits. Samsung did not respond to CNET's request for comment.

Fast Company today published its annual rankings of the 50 most innovative companies in the world, and this year, Apple is the number one company on the list for "delivering the future today."

Apple was picked for its impressive list of accomplishments in 2017, which included the iPhone X, the Apple Watch Series 3, ARKit, and its unique focus on hardware and software integration that sets it apart from its competitors. Apple designs its own chips that are optimized for its operating systems, resulting in performance that blows the competition away.

But creativity is more than skin deep--and Apple's approach to the hardware and software engineering that creates its experiences has never been more ambitious. Other makers of phones and tablets buy the same off-the-shelf chips as their competitors. Apple, by contrast, designs its own chips--so an iPhone packs a processor designed...

iOS Messages and Smart Punctuation

iOS 11 finally added a long-awaited feature for those of us who care about typographic details: smart punctuation. You can turn this on in Settings → General → Keyboards. When enabled, quotes and apostrophes (like "this" and 'this') are automatically turned into their proper counterparts (like “this” and ‘this’), two hyphens in a row (--) are turned into a proper em-dash (—), etc.

I say “finally” because MacOS has had the feature in the standard text editing system for many years, and I can’t think of a good reason why it wasn’t in iOS years ago. I can say it’s not a difficult programming job to solve because I’ve solved it in the more difficult context of smartening punctuation in prose without messing up the necessary dumb quotes inside HTML tags.

In some recent update to iOS (I think 11.2.5, but it might...

With the first betas of iOS 11.3 and tvOS 11.3, when you installed these updates on an iOS device and two or more fourth or fifth-generation Apple TVs, AirPlay 2 could be used to stream music to multiple devices at the same time.

As an example, with two Apple TVs running tvOS 11.3 set up in different rooms of the house, you could use an iPhone to play the same song on both through AirPlay 2's multi-room audio feature.

Installing tvOS 11.3 also added the Apple TV to your HomeKit setup, with the Apple TV present in the Home app.

Apple's new HomePod is late to the smart speaker market, which is already crowded with speakers from companies like Amazon, Google, and Sonos. The latter two companies, Google and Sonos, have released speakers with high-quality sound and robust voice assistants, giving the HomePod some serious competition.

We decided to pit Apple's $349 HomePod against both the $399 Google Home Max, which comes with Google Assistant, and the $199 Alexa-powered Sonos One to see how the HomePod measures up.

Internet trolls had a great time causing Apple products to freeze last week thanks to a bug involving a specific character from India’s Telugu language. Fortunately, the party’s over now, as Apple released a barrage of updates that patch the issue on iPhones, iPads, Macs, Apple Watches, and Apple TV boxes.

Take our word for it: update your devices now. You’re most likely to encounter the bug on your iPhone and iPad, so be sure to get the iOS 11.2.6 patch on your device straight away.

Apple’s had to deal with some high-profile bugs in the last few months, but this one, while obscure, was particularly nasty. All someone had to do was send a message with the specific character to an app like Messages, Facebook Messenger, or WhatsApp, and the app would freeze while Apple’s software struggled to interpret the character.

Review: Apple HomePod — Part 1: Audio Performance

On June 9, 2017, during their WWDC Keynote, Apple announced the HomePod. On stage, Phil Schiller said that the HomePod was a "breakthrough home speaker" that would "revolutionize home audio." These are lofty claims. Apple didn't limit themselves to just smart speakers, but would instead revolutionize home audio in general. This promised revolution has made the HomePod is one of the most challenging products we have yet reviewed — not because it's particularly hard to describe (it's a bass-heavy smart speaker) or to use (voice commands, a tap interface, and AirPlay), but because of the weight that Apple's promise carries. Most products — especially speakers — promise big, but the HomePod has had the unique effect of setting expectations just as big. Since its launch, audiophiles that normally wouldn't touch a smart speaker are writing exhaustive reviews and comparing the HomePod to $90,000 stereo systems. Publications that had previously given only the most superficial...

If you’re using the new 10.5-inch iPad Pro as a laptop replacement and toting it all over town with you, you’ve probably realized this by now: You need a case or some sort of protection for it.

Apple Seeds Third Beta of iOS 11.3 to Developers

Apple today seeded the third beta of an upcoming iOS 11.3 update to developers for testing purposes, two weeks after seeding the second beta and one month after releasing iOS 11.2.5, an update that focused primarily on bug fixes and security improvements. The update also comes just a day after the release of iOS 11.2.6, which fixed a bug that caused iPhones and iPads to crash when a character from the Indian language Telugu was rendered improperly.

Registered developers can download the new iOS 11.3 beta from Apple's Developer Center or over-the-air once the proper configuration profile has been installed from the Developer Center.

Rumor: Apple will unveil a new iPhone SE at the 2018...

Chinese website QQ  — as noted by Cult of Mac — claims Apple will unveil a new iPhone SE at this year’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC).

The article says the iPhone SE 2 will have a bigger display (4.2 inches), an A10 processor that’s better equipped for iOS 12 (when it arrives), plus 2GB of RAM. QQ also claims the smartphone will come in 32GB and 128GB storage options. The rumor adds that it will retain Touch ID and a physical home button and forego FaceID.

Chances the rumor is true, according to the Sellers Research Group (that’s me): 50%. The specs sound about right, but I can’t imagine Apple unveiling a new iPhone at WWDC. Those announcements and products almost always arrive in the fall.

Review: App control of DSLRs with the MIOPS Mobile...

Photography apps for our iPhones and iPads let us do some pretty amazing things, all in part due to the supercomputer in our hand being able to control a pretty decent camera. But even the best iPhone camera can’t hold a candle to the flexibility and image-capturing capability of a digital single lens reflex (DSLR) camera equipped with a big sensor and a variety of lenses. The US$125 MSRP MIOPS Mobile Remote ($99.99 on Amazon, Amazon affiliate link) bridges the power of both devices — smartphone and DSLR to create a hybrid device that’s better than both.

Sketchy Rumor: iPhone SE 2 Will Debut at WWDC With...

We've already heard multiple rumors suggesting Apple will unveil a so-called iPhone SE 2 later this year, and a new supply chain report from Chinese news website QQ.com claims to have knowledge of the device's tech specs.

First, the report says the new iPhone SE won't look like the iPhone X, which would make sense given it's a lower-end device. Instead, the new model will purportedly have a similar design as the original iPhone SE, with a metal back and frame, top and bottom bezels on the front, and a home button.

A key difference would supposedly be a larger 4.2-inch display, but this is questionable given it could make it harder to use the iPhone SE in one hand, which is preferred by a subset of customers. However, it's certainly possible Apple could trim down the bezels of the new iPhone SE slightly.

Apple is likely more focused on...

Apple tops Fast Company’s 2018 World’s Most...

Apple has topped Fast Company’s 2018 World’s Most Innovation Companies list that spans more than 350 enterprises across 36 categories.

More than three dozen Fast Company editors, reporters, and contributors surveyed thousands of companies (many identified through a new, public submission process) across 36 categories. Their mandate: “identify the most notable innovations of the year, and trace their impact on businesses, industries, and the larger culture.”

Here’s part of what Fast Company has to say about Apple: Creativity is more than skin deep—and Apple’s approach to the hardware and software engineering that creates its experiences has never been more ambitious. Other makers of phones and tablets buy the same off-the-shelf chips as their competitors. Apple, by contrast, designs its own chips—so an iPhone packs a processor designed specifically optimized for Apple’s operating system, apps, display, camera, and touch sensor. The...

Gibson “running out of time — rapidly”

Nashville Post:

“Gibson Brands, Inc. today announced that the company made a $16.6 million coupon payment to holders of its $375 million, 8.875% senior secured notes due 2018.”

That simple statement issued a week ago — at all of 26 words, it’s less than a quarter the length of Gibson’s boilerplate company description that accompanied it — suggests a business-as-usual tone of a company taking care of its contractual commitments.

But the situation facing the iconic Nashville-based music instrument maker, which has annual revenues of more than $1 billion, is far from normal: CFO Bill Lawrence recently left the company after less than a year on the job and just six months before $375 million of senior secured notes will mature. On top of that, another $145 million in bank loans will come due immediately if those notes, issued in 2013, are not refinanced by July 23.

Reading through all of this, things do indeed look dire. But I can’t imagine the Gibson brand...

One of my favorite geek stories of all time

I’m on an email list that caters to the geeky and to engineering. This story hit my inbox over the weekend, but was written about 15 years ago, and was given the title “Engineering Pornography”. But it’s not what you think. This is about a massive engineering problem, solved in a beautifully elegant way.

If I still have your attention, here’s a highlight to whet your appetite:

Several days ago a very large number of trucks and men from the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power descended on my neighborhood. They removed large sections of Pershing drive to a depth of 15 feet or so over a stretch of about a city block. I assumed they had a problem with a water main or something.

When they started building semi-permanent structures over the holes I knew something really big was up. When the large trucks full of strange power tools, mega-welding machines, breathing equipment, and racks of test equipment came I started wondering. Driving by a couple nights ago (...

How to watch live broadcast TV on your Apple TV...

Lory Gil, iMore:

We’ve got a list of the best streaming live TV services. Keep in mind, though, that most of these services don’t offer unlimited access to broadcast channels like NBC, CBS, ABC, and Fox. What I’m referring to is the ability to watch any broadcast channel available in your area.

And:

The thing about broadcast television is that I couldn’t watch it on Apple TV. I’d have to switch my TV input over, and then flip through the channels until I found something to watch. I rarely watched broadcast television because I tend to stick with Apple TV for my TV and movie watching activities.

And:

With HDHomeRun, not only can I watch live broadcast television on my Apple TV, I can also watch it on my iPhone or iPad. Plus, with a subscription, you can record live TV and watch it the way a person with cable and a DVR would watch TV. Skip those commercials!

Bitcoin thieves threaten real life violence

Nathaniel Popper, New York Times:

In the beach resort of Phuket, Thailand, last month, the assailants pushed their victim, a young Russian man, into his apartment and kept him there, blindfolded, until he logged onto his computer and transferred about $100,000 worth of Bitcoin to an online wallet they controlled.

And:

A few weeks before that, the head of a Bitcoin exchange in Ukraine was taken hostage and only released after the company paid a ransom of $1 million in Bitcoin.

And:

In New York City, a man was held captive by a friend until he transferred over $1.8 million worth of Ether, a virtual currency second in value only to Bitcoin.

This has become a thing. Why? Because once the Bitcoins have been transferred, there’s no way to prove ownership, no way to get the Bitcoin back. When the victims call the police, the police shrug their shoulders. There’s simply nothing they can do.

Second ‘scanning depth engine’ patent involves 3D...

Apple has applied for a second patent (number 9,898,074; the first was number 20170205873) for a “scanning depth engine.” If the invention ever comes to fruition, a Mac could generate a 3D profile of an object by processing an optical image of the object.

Think of it as a sort of photocopier for 3-D objects. Also, it’s like a portable Kinect device that would allow users to interact with games or exercise videos played on a Mac — or perhaps an Apple TV.

This sort of 3D profile is also referred to as a 3D map, depth map or depth image, and 3D mapping is also referred to as depth mapping. Depth maps can be used in interactive gaming, creating shadows cast by illumination in 3D computer graphics, adding realism by simulating the semi-transparent properties of translucent materials such as human skin, and much more.

Here’s Apple’s summary of the invention: “Mapping apparatus includes a transmitter, which emits a beam comprising pulses of light, and a scanner, which...

Apple’s move to share health care records is a game-...

Game changer? Really? Hmm. Let’s take a look.

Aneesh Chopra, Shafiq Rabaneesh Chopra and Shafiq Rab, Wired:

In late January, Apple previewed an iOS feature that would allow consumers to access their electronic health records on their phones. Skeptics said the move was a decade too late given a similar (and failed) effort from Google.

But:

This move is a game-changer for three reasons: It affirms there is one common path to open up electronic health records data for developers so they can focus on delighting consumers rather than chasing records. It encourages other platform companies to build on that path, rather than pursue proprietary systems. And it ensures that the pace of progress will accelerate as healthcare delivery systems respond to the aggregate demand of potentially millions of iPhone users around the world.

This, indeed, is a game changer. To me, the key is this:

That’s because Apple has committed to an open API for health care...

Apple seeks new trademark for its ‘rainbow’ logo

In August 1999 Apple replaced the striped, multicolored logo it used since 1977 with a new single-color version. Some folks still miss the “original” company logo, though actually it wasn’t the original logo at all.

That one portrayed Sir Isaac Newton sitting beneath a tree with a solitary apple dangling over his head. Apple’s third co-founder, Ron Wayne — who sold his stake in the company for just $800 — designed...

You can use your HomePod to control HomeKit accessories—such as lights, thermostats, and window shades—that you’ve set up in the Home app on your iOS device. Then you can say things like “Hey Siri, set the thermostat to 72 degrees” or “Hey Siri, did I lock the front door?”

HomeKit is a framework that allows control of compatible home automation devices through iOS and Siri. It works with the Home app, allowing you to control all your HomeKit accessories.

The commands that work when you’re speaking to HomePod depend on which smart home accessories you have set up. To control a single accessory, use the name you gave it in the Home app. For example, say “Hey Siri, turn on the porch light.” You can check the status of an accessory by saying something like “Hey Siri, is the porch light on?” You can also say, for example, “Hey Siri, turn off the lights in here,” to control the accessories that are in the same room as HomePod.

You can use HomePod to lock or check the...

Apple Updates All of Its Operating Systems To Fix...

It took a few days, but Apple already has a fix out for a bug that caused crashes on each of its platforms. From a report: The company pushed new versions of iOS, macOS and watchOS to fix the issue, which was caused when someone pasted in or received a single Indian-language character in select communications apps -- most notably in iMessages, Safari and the app store. Using a specific character in the Telugu language native to India was enough to crash a variety of chat apps, including iMessage, WhatsApp, Twitter, Facebook Messenger, Gmail and Outlook, though Telegram and Skype were seemingly immune.

Spotted by 9to5Mac, Apple changed the address on its corporate contact page to its new headquarters after the company’s shareholder meeting last Tuesday. Infinite Loop still houses thousands of Apple employees—and will for the foreseeable future—but the center of the Apple universe has shifted to Apple Park. It’s a wee strange, at least to someone who’s been covering Apple for so long, but Apple Park is something special. So out with the old and in with the new and never look back.

Concept: Creating a more immersive HomePod store...

Prior to the release of HomePod earlier this month, many potential readers and Apple customers were eager to hear just how good the $349 speaker would sound. On launch day, we stopped in at several of Apple’s retail locations to see HomePod in person, bringing you photos of the store displays. Demoing a speaker in a noisy environment is no easy task, and while HomePod’s performance is admirable, the difference between your home and a busy store is still markedly obvious. Augmenting HomePod’s in-store display experience could help compensate for the shortcomings of a less-than-ideal testing environment. Here’s how it could be done.

KODAK SCANZA film scanner excels at digitizing photo...

For those of us who are a bit older than the average, there's a problem -- while our newer photographic memories are captured in digital format, the older photos were taken on film in the form of negatives that were usually printed or in slides. There are services that provide scanning of these images, but they're expensive, and many older methods of scanning slides were slow and of limited quality. That's all changed with the new KODAK SCANZA film scanner (US$169.99, Amazon affiliate link) from KODAK licensee C+A Global.

Design

The design of the SCANZA is perfect for sitting down and digitizing a pile of slides or negatives in one session. It's a small (5.1 x 4.7 x 4.5 inch / 12.95 x 11.94 x 11.43 cm) device with a bright 3.5-inch LCD color display on top, and various openings around the bottom to accommodate...

Opinion: Nokia hasn’t been healthy for Withings,...

Nokia’s ownership of Withings has been incredibly messy. After buying Withings in mid-2016, Nokia sued Apple over unrelated patents which resulted in Withings digital health products being pulled from the Apple Store.

While that dispute has since been resolved, Nokia now says it is reviewing its digital health business altogether. The result could be positive or negative for Withings customers depending on where ownership lands.

As a Withings customer myself, my hope is that Apple buys the digital health product business from Nokia — if only to do the bare...
