AT&T CEO Believe 5G Phone Plans Could Be Tiered...

The next couple of years will see the rollout of 5G cellular phone networks from companies like Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile, and it sounds like 5G smartphone plans might not be priced in the same way as current 4G LTE plans.

During today's AT&T earnings call, AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson said (via The Verge) that he believes the pricing for 5G connectivity could resemble home broadband pricing with different prices for different speed tiers rather than one set price for the fastest connectivity available.

"I will be very surprised if, as we move into wireless, the pricing regime in wireless doesn't look something like the pricing regime you see in fixed line. If you can offer a gig speed, there are some customers that are willing to pay a premium for 500 meg to a gig speed, and so forth. So I expect that to be the case. We're two to...

Financial Gain in Modern Tech Dehumanizes Us

Axios writes:

Tristan Harris, the former Googler who helped popularize the notion of “time well spent” laid out the shift he says the tech industry needs to make in order to stop, as he puts it, “downgrading humanity.” … Harris made the case that today’s technology downgrades humanity by creating a vast artificial social system powered by “overwhelming” AI and an “extractive” attention economy.

The problem, as Harris notes, is that the first company to blink loses.

The Drumbeat of Impeachment

J. W. Verret, writing at The Atlantic, “A Trump Transition Staffer Calls for Impeachment”:

Let’s start at the end of this story. This weekend, I read Special
Counsel Robert Mueller’s report twice, and realized that enough
was enough — I needed to do something. I’ve worked on every
Republican presidential transition team for the past 10 years and
recently served as counsel to the Republican-led House Financial
Services Committee. My permanent job is as a law professor at the
George Mason University Antonin Scalia Law School, which is not
political, but where my colleagues have held many prime spots in
Republican administrations.

If you think calling for the impeachment of a sitting Republican
president would constitute career suicide for someone like me, you
may end up being right. But I did exactly...

How to cancel an app subscription on iPhone or iPad

Signing up for a subscription service like Apple News+ through iOS is kind of fun. A menu pops pop, you activate Face ID or Touch ID, and the world’s most satisfying ding lets you know your purchase was successful. It’s simplicity itself.

As for unsubscribing? That’s not so simple, but it’s better than it used to be. For years Apple would make you venture into depths of the Settings app that you probably never even knew existed in order to find your list of subscriptions, and you can still take that route if you wish. Now, though, Apple now lets you access your subscriptions directly through the App Store app. It’s still not incredibly intuitive, but it’s a massive improvement over the hoops we had to jump through.

Despite Facebook’s attempts to clamp down on inappropriate content, the two-week long investigation conducted in March found dozens of WhatsApp chat groups with hundreds of members that share child sexual abuse material. The groups were identified through a third-party WhatsApp public group discovery app that Google recently banned from Play Store, but can still be sideloaded using the installation files that are available online elsewhere.

The Apple Watch Launched Four Years Ago Today

On April 24, 2015, the original Apple Watch launched in nine countries around the world. Four years later and we are now on the fourth iteration of the wearable device, the Apple Watch Series 4. Over the years Apple has worked on improving Apple Watch with a better and bigger display, water resistance, additional health and fitness features, and more.

Apple Watch (first generation)

As usual for Apple products, rumors about an Apple wearable device began ramping up in the years before the official Apple Watch launch. In 2013, Apple filed a trademark for an "iWatch," despite the fact that the device would eventually be known as the Apple Watch.

Tim Cook addressed the TIME 100 Summit Tuesday. There, he encouraged people to put down their iPhones. He even said he turned off push notifications from lots of apps, reported Techcrunch.

Today, when users install new apps they often say “No” to push notifications. And with Apple’s new tools to control notifications, users are now actively triaging which apps can get in touch. In fact, that’s what Tim Cook says he did, too. “If you guys aren’t doing this — if you have an iPhone and you’re not doing it, I would encourage you to really do this — monitor these [push notifications],” the CEO suggested to the audience. “What it has done for me personally is I’ve gone in and gutted the number of notifications,” Cook said. “Because I asked myself: ‘Do I really need to be getting thousands of notifications a day?’

Sir Jony Ive on Design and Apple’s Values

Sir Jony Ive does not make a huge number of media appearances. When he does, they tend to be worth taking in. Design magazine Document has an in-depth interview with Sir. Jony and Dior top designer Kim Jones in its new edition. In it, he talked about design tools, the future, and the values that run through Apple.

To me, what the institution represents first and foremost is a set of values and a clear sense of why Apple exists, and what contribution we can make to culture—what contribution we can make to society. What I can bring to that is to practice what I do within those values and to extend them. I think it stems from my sense of curiosity. I’m absurdly, frantically inquisitive. Given that I’ve been at Apple for nearly 30 years now, I think I’m sort of steeped in those values. I think the values are powerful but they’re general, and it’s how you turn your curiosity and ideas into vision. I think that very simplistically describes my relationship with...

The complaint seeks damages in the form of recovery of the cost to repair the broken sleep/wake button or the diminished value of the iPhone due to the broken sleep/wake button, along with restitution, injunctive and declaratory relief.

Using a dedicated class makes expanding your registry functionality in the future easier.A DWORD is 4 bytes, so the value for RegistryWriter to send is currently limited to 4 characters (i.e. test1234 is not technically possible with a DWORD).

To use it, simply call the RegistryKeyManager class along with the key to write to and the value to put into the key:

RegistryKeyManager r( "HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/x/y", 1234 ); Which would create a key in HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/x/y with a DWORD value of 1234.

You could then read the value of and modify the key with calls like:

Class Action Lawsuit Over Broken iPhone 4, 4s, and 5...

A class action lawsuit originally filed against Apple in 2013 over broken iPhone 4, iPhone 4s, and later iPhone 5 power buttons is finally set to proceed to jury trial in San Diego state court beginning October 25, 2019.

The lawsuit alleges that Apple knowingly sold the aforementioned iPhone models with "defective" power buttons and refused to properly remedy the issue. For this, Apple is accused of "deceptive" or "fraudulent" business practices, breach of warranty, and violating multiple California consumer laws.

The proposed class includes California residents who purchased an iPhone 4, iPhone 4s, or iPhone 5 from Apple or a third-party retailer:iPhone 4 and 4S Class:

All California citizens who purchased one or more iPhone 4 or 4S smartphones from Apple or a third-party retailer, from June 24, 2010 through October 10, 2011 for the iPhone 4, and from October 11, 2011 through September 20...

You Could Get a TurboTax Refund if you Make Under $...

If you make less than US$34,000 per year, you could get a TurboTax refund if the company made you pay them when you filed your taxes.

If you are one of the millions of Americans who made under $34,000 last year, you should have been able to use a free version of TurboTax. If TurboTax directed you to a paid version, it’s worth giving the company a call.

“I called today and they are issuing a refund on my credit card,” one reader said. “I just had to mention ProPublica.”

Thanks to lobbying by corporations like TurboTax, the IRS doesn’t do our taxes for us like other countries.

Research group says Apple TV+ will have eight...

The number of SVOD subscriptions for movies, linear channels and TV episodes (and excluding other platforms such as sports services) in North America will climb by 110 million from 160 million in 2018 to 270 million in 2024, according to Research and Markets. These figures are gross - many homes take more than one SVOD platform.

The research group predicts that the upcoming Apple TV+ will see “modest” growth to eight million by 2024. Apple’s upcoming streaming service will debut this fall.

Research and Markets forecasts that 77.8% of TV households (94 million) will subscribe to at least one SVOD platform by 2024. The average SVOD household will pay for 2.89 SVOD subscriptions. This compares to 70.0% of TV households (84 million) TV households subscribing to at least one SVOD platform by end-2018. The average SVOD subscriber paid for 1.91 SVOD platforms at end-2018.

A “blockchain bandit” is guessing private keys and...

Wired:

What if an Ethereum owner stored their digital money with a private key—the unguessable, 78-digit string of numbers that protects the currency stashed at a certain address—that had a value of 1?

To Bednarek’s surprise, he found that dead-simple key had in fact once held currency, according to the blockchain that records all Ethereum transactions. But the cash had already been taken out of the Ethereum wallet that used it—almost certainly by a thief who had thought to guess a private key of 1 long before Bednarek had.

And:

That initial discovery piqued Bednarek’s curiosity. So he tried a few more consecutive keys: 2, 3, 4, and then a couple dozen more, all of which had been similarly emptied. So he and his colleagues at the security consultancy Independent Security Evaluators wrote some code, fired up some cloud servers, and tried a few dozen billion more.

Seems such an obvious tack to take. And reinforces my avoidance of blockchain backed...

Apple continues to lead global premium smartphone segment by capturing more than half of the market while OnePlus entered the top five brands in the premium segment for the first time ever in 2018 as competition intensified in the global premium smartphone segment. The segment grew faster than the global smartphone market, according to Counterpoint Research’s Market Monitor 2018 service.

The segment grew 14% year-on-year (YoY) in terms of sell-in and 18% YoY in terms of sell-through. Growth was driven by new iPhones and launches in a premium segment from Chinese manufacturers like Huawei, OPPO, OnePlus.

Apple remained the market leader capturing 51% share of the premium segment, a significant lead over its nearest competitor Samsung which had a 22% share. However, Chinese brands made their mark as Huawei’s share in the segment reached double digits (10...

And:

But then I started doing some research and I learned that actually it’s already possible, if you have right accessibility hardware like special joysticks and motors, to have some kind of cursor on iOS. This is already possible and has been possible for years.

But what I heard from sources is that without any adapter you will be able to use a USB-C mouse, on your iPad, as an accessibility device.

eMarketer has released data on UK and U.S. market share for the iPhone and iPad, along with usage of Apple TV. Here’s what the research group found:

Apple's share of smartphone users in the U.S. will remain basically static in 2019, accounting for a 45.2% share. Android, by comparison, will account for 53.4% of US smartphone usage.  eMarketer expects Android to dominate smartphone usage through 2021.

In observation of Distracted Driving Month this April, The Zebra, an insurance comparison site, surveyed 2,107 Americans to uncover what activities are distracting them on the road. 

The survey revealed that 78% of Americans admit to engaging in activities other than concentrating on the road, even though the majority of them (66%) feel guilty while doing so. And iPhone users are twice as likely to text and drive as Android users.

According to The Zebra, when looking at iPhone vs. Android owners, Apple users are more addicted to their mobile devices, as they’re more prone to text, take photos, video-chat and more while driving. 

Emotional commercials and big brand petitions tell us that a text message can wait, yet 73% of respondents who admitted to texting and driving agree that this risky act can be classified as an addiction. Eighty percent of people in this group...

Amber alerts and AirPods

Reddit:

Just got my first set of AirPods two weeks ago. Really enjoying them now that my company has switched to iOS and I tote around 2 iPhones. Then today I just popped them in to walk to the office and an Amber Alert game in. Through the AirPods. Full blast loud. My eyes watered and I threw one out as fast as possible but didn’t quite get the other in time as I tried to dismiss the alert. Holy hell my ears are ringing so loud. Is there any way to turn that down??

Amber alerts are designed to play at max volume, to get your attention. I get that.

But seems to me, Apple should do a bit of testing with AirPods volume, set a max limit for emergency klaxons and Amber alerts. There are people who need their AirPods at full volume, so not clear that a hard volume level cutoff is the right answer, but seems clear that the current in ear volume for Amber alerts and the like is just too loud and, perhaps, harmful to hearing.

Rumor: new AirPods coming later this year or early...

In a note to clients — as noted by AppleInsider — analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says Apple will release two new AirPod models later this year or in early 2020. The Sellers Research Group (that’s me) says, barring any production problems, we’ll see them this year, so Apple can capitalize on holiday spending.

He says one of the wireless earbuds will sport an all-new form-factor at a higher price. The second model will have the same design and cost as the current AirPods, Kuo adds.

He doesn’t elaborate on what design changes we might expect. However, possibilities are new health features, enhanced audio quality, a new coating for improved grip and noise cancellation tech.

Whatever the changes, Kuo predicts that Apple will sell 52 million units in 2019, and between 75 million and 85 million in...

iFixit’s Samsung Galaxy Fold Teardown

iFixit:

Well, we’ve finally got the Samsung Galaxy Fold on our teardown table. This is, without question, an ambitious first-generation device—the idea of having both a smartphone and a tablet in your pocket at all times is pretty exciting! That said, a number of early reviewers had some durability issues with their review units, ultimately leading to a launch postponement. Are these temporary setbacks? Or are we headed for a full-blown AirPower-style product cancellation?

The teardown is full of great pics and details, but this little bit goes to the heart of the matter:

Unlike the dull slabs of glass we’re used to, this smartphone/tablet hybrid has lots of potential entry points—and not the good kind.

To achieve the fold, the thin bezel that surrounds (and protects) the screen leaves a gap where the two halves meet.

And:

This 7 mm gap doesn’t seem like a huge deal, but it leaves the display exposed—so should something accidentally enter,...

Apple will likely launch two new AirPods models as early as the fourth quarter of 2019, according to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

In his latest research note, obtained by MacRumors, Kuo forecasts that two new AirPods models will likely go into mass production between the fourth quarter of 2019 and the first quarter of 2020, with Luxshare, Goertek, and Amkor expected to be Apple's primary suppliers of the new earphones.

Kuo believes one of the new AirPods models will feature an "all-new form factor design" and a "higher price" than the second-generation AirPods, which cost $159 with a standard charging case and $199 with a wireless charging case. The other model is expected to be a more iterative update with the same pricing.

Both new AirPods models are said to adopt a new system-in-package design internally, which can improve assembly yield rates,...

CableBox Mini helps you easily manage cable clutter

If you’re like me, you suffer from cable clutter. Even though I have a 27-inch iMac 5K with a decent amount of internal storage, I have connections to: an external hard drive; various adapter cables; and a surge protector to protect all these gadgets.

The result? A crowded desktop. One simple solution: The BlueLounge CableBox Mini, a $30 solution that tidies up your desktop and looks good doing it. You just plug your devices into the supplied four-socket surge protector, then stow away the surplus cable lengths, and close the lid. The CableBox has cable outlets on two sides, which makes it convenient for stashing cords, adapters and small USB hubs, while still retaining access to them.

Rubber feet keep it from sliding around on your desktop — or the floor, if you prefer it there. I keep my CableBox Mini behind my iMac where it houses an USB hub and my iPhone charger. However, you can also use it under a desk or near a TV.

iFixit Teardown of Samsung Galaxy Fold Reveals...

iFixit today published its teardown of Samsung's Galaxy Fold, offering more details on a potential flaw in the device, which has now been delayed following reports of several broken review units.

Essentially, it looks as though Samsung was so focused on perfecting the folding mechanism on the smartphone/tablet hybrid that it made a major oversight: providing adequate protection against the ingress of debris between the OLED screen and the chassis bezel.

To achieve the fold, the thin bezel that surrounds (and protects) the screen leaves a gap where the two halves meet... This 7 mm gap doesn't seem like a huge deal, but it leaves the display exposed—so should something accidentally enter, it's curtains for the screen. (Oops.)

When closed, the screen is protected—but the spine is flanked by massive gaps that our opening picks hop right into. These gaps are less likely to...

Apple eyes a way to make it easier to hear iPhone...

Apple has been granted a patent (number 10,269,369) for a “system and method of noise reduction for a mobile device.” The goal is to make it easier to hear phone calls on your iPhone when you’re in a noisy environment.

In the patent filing, Apple notes that you can use using headphones, earbuds, or headset when talking on your iPhone. However, a common complaint with these hands-free modes of operation is that the speech captured by the microphone port or the headset includes environmental noise such as wind noise, secondary speakers in the background.

Here’s Apple’s summary of the invention: “System of noise reduction for mobile devices includes blind source separator (BSS) and noise suppressor. BSS receives signals from at least two audio pickup channels. BSS includes sound source separator, voice source detector, equalizer, and auto-disabler. Sound source separator generates signals representing first sound source and second sound source...

The Mac is becoming more like iOS—and I think I like...

I fell in love with the Mac nearly 30 years ago, in the fall of 1989. It’s been the center of my tech world ever since, and I’ve been writing about it professionally for 25 years. And yet these past months, I’ve noticed something strange creeping into my thoughts occasionally while I sit at my desk working on my iMac Pro: iOS does this better.

It’s disconcerting, after three decades, to suddenly find that manipulation of files and folders in the Finder has gone from being business as usual to seeming like it’s more fuss and effort than is necessary. And yet that’s where I am now, thanks to a couple of years of using an iPad Pro rather than a MacBook Air whenever I’m away from my desk. The iPad, she has infected me. And I fear there is no cure.

Gartner: global IT spending to grow 1.1% in 2019

Worldwide IT spending is projected to total $3.79 trillion in 2019, an increase of 1.1% from 2018, according to the latest forecast by Gartner, Inc. (www.gartner.com).

“Currency headwinds fueled by the strengthening U.S. dollar have caused us to revise our 2019 IT spending forecast down from the previous quarter,” said John-David Lovelock, research vice president at Gartner. “Through the remainder of 2019, the U.S. dollar is expected to trend stronger, while enduring tremendous volatility due to uncertain economic and political environments and trade wars. In 2019, technology product managers will have to get more strategic with their portfolio mix by balancing products and services that will post growth in 2019 with those larger markets that will trend flat to down. Successful product managers in 2020 will have had a long-term view to the changes made in 2019.”

Rumor: Apple Pay could launch in Austria today

There tends to be nuggets of truth in almost all rumors.

The current rumor is that Apple Pay Australia will launch today, although it’s unknown as to which banks will support it upon launch.

The following translated quote was offered by a source close to the story:

As a partner Apple could win the Erste Bank and Sparkasse and the online bank N26…The question is whether Apple launches its service far too late in Austria. Many banks have already equipped their cards with the NFC function years ago, so fast payments are already possible in this way.

Logitech Slim Folio Pro keyboard case for 12.9-inch...

When I reviewed last year’s 12.9-inch iPad Pro, I praised its power but remained skeptical that it could take the place of a MacBook. Logitech seems to have taken such concerns as a challenge in designing the Slim Folio Pro for the 2018 11- and 12.9-inch iPad Pros, and it did so well that I feel safe in saying that this is the closest you’re going to get to making Apple’s pricey tablet feel like a laptop.

DigiTimes reports this morning that Apple is set to launch third-generation AirPods with a noise cancelation function by the end of the year, a claim at odds with rumors that Apple's AirPods 3 have been pushed back to 2020.

Apple is reportedly set to release its third-generation AirPods for sales by the end of 2019, with the new wireless earphones to incorporate a noise cancellation function. And Taiwan's Inventec reportedly will be the major assembler of AirPods 3, while China's Luxshare Precision will also grab part of the orders for the new device, according to industry sources.Today's report claims that Apple will fend off competition from rival brands of true wireless earbuds by including a noise-canceling function in its third-generation AirPods, although doing so could throw up new design and assembly challenges.

Digitimes says the primary feature of the late 2019 AirPods will be noise cancellation. Like AirPods 2, AirPods 3 are expected to be manufactured by Inventec and Luxshare Precision.

'Technology Needs To Be Regulated': Apple...

In an interview at the TIME 100 Summit in New York, Apple CEO Tim Cook said more government regulation on the tech industry is needed in order to protect privacy. "We all have to be intellectually honest, and we have to admit that what we're doing isn't working," said Cook. "Technology needs to be regulated. There are now too many examples where the no rails have resulted in a great damage to society." Time Magazine reports: In the interview, Cook suggested that U.S. regulators could look to Europe's passage of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in 2018. "GDPR isn't ideal," said Cook. "But GDPR is a step in the right direction." In light of recent data breaches and foreign election influence through social media, Cook's view is that the tech industry has no other responsible option but to accept more government oversight, a position he outlined in a recent TIME Ideas piece.

"I'm hopeful," Cook said at the Summit. "We are advocating strongly for regulation -- I do...

Razer last week announced the launch of its latest eGPU, the $400 Razer Core X Chroma, equipped with, as the name suggests, Razer's signature Chroma lighting.

Razer sent us one of the Core X Chroma eGPUs to check out, and we've gone hands-on with it in our latest YouTube video to see how well it works with Apple's Macs.

Tim Cook is not one of Time’s 100 most influential people of 2019. Nonetheless, as a three-time honoree of that list, he was invited to be interviewed by Nancy Gibbs at the Time 100 Summit. As expected, Cook didn’t reveal any details about new products, software, or services. Instead, the questions posed and answers given were broad, touching on Cook’s and Apple’s values and how technology fits into the world we live in.

Here’s some of what he said about a variety of issues. Quotes have been lightly edited for clarity.

After selling to Nokia and then returning to its own brand, Withings is back in action bringing stylish and functional fitness devices to market. The way that I first got turned on to Withings was when I was looking for a stylish watch with heart rate tracking. Back then, it was the Nokia Steel HR that caught my eye. It delivered everything I wanted functionality-wise in a sleek analog design – and at $180, it’s a pretty affordable wearable. Then, a few months after I bought the Nokia Steel HR, Withings came out with the Steel HR Sport with a dark grey stainless steel case. This is the look I originally wanted with the Nokia. The Sport is a little more expensive at $200, but not by much...

Google gets okay to start drone deliveries

Alphabet Inc’s Wing Aviation unit on Tuesday got the okay to start delivering goods by drone in Virginia later this year, making the sister unit of search engine Google the first company to get U.S. air carrier certification, the Federal Aviation Administration said.

This means Wing can begin a commercial service delivering goods from local businesses to homes, which includes flights beyond visual line of site and over people, the FAA and Wing said. Wing Aviation plans to start commercial package delivery in Blacksburg, Virginia later this year.

I’m honestly not sure how I feel about drone deliveries. There seems to be a lot that can go wrong, but we’ll see.

How about some wholesome news for once? Recently, botanists in Hawaii used a drone to find a flower they thought was extinct: Hibiscadelphus woodii.

During the expedition that led to the rediscovery of H. woodii, Wood and Nyberg had hiked hundreds of feet down the Kalalau Valley cliffs, but the difficult terrain prevented them from going any further.

It was then that Nyberg deployed the drone, flying it further down the cliffs, toward the sea, to take a closer look at a specific area of interest. Able to get within a meter or two of the sheer cliff face, he was able to confirm the continued existence of H. woodii.
