Creating an Indestructible Lithium-Ion Battery

Lithium-ion batteries power many of our favorite gadgets. However, they rely on toxic, flammable materials. A small defect can cause devices to explode. Scientists at John Hopkins University develop better ones, and Wired told the story.

A team of researchers led by physicists at the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory believed a safer battery was possible, and for the past five years they have been developing a lithium-ion battery that’s seemingly immune to failure. The rugged battery they first unveiled in 2017, working with researchers at the University of Maryland, can be cut, shot, bent, and soaked without an interruption in power. Late last year, the Johns Hopkins team pushed it further, making it fireproof and boosting its voltages to levels comparable with a commercial product. Samsung, eat your heart out.

NBC’s Peacock streaming service will launch on July...

The Verge:

Comcast and NBCUniversal announced today that Peacock will be available in three tiers: a free option (Peacock Free) that comes with limited programming; an ad-supported complete version that is free to existing Comcast customers and $5-a-month for everyone else; and a $10-a-month ad-free subscription option that is open to anyone. That one is known as Peacock Premium.

And:

This brings us to Comcast and NBCUniversal’s final ace in the hole: licensing. NBCUniversal and Comcast own some of the most important licenses in Hollywood. The entire Harry Potter collection, for example, belongs to NBCUniversal right now. WarnerMedia licensed the rights to the franchise a while back, and it will have to wait until those expire (or a new deal is struck) before the movies can migrate over to HBO Max. Since NBCUniversal owns a few important licenses and can license its own series to other streaming services like Netflix and Hulu, which rely on third-party content...

Apple’s Legendary ‘1984’ ad Arrived in Theaters on...

I always enjoy Cult of Mac’s ‘Today in Apple History’ segments. Today is a particularly good one though, because on this day 36 years ago, Apple’s legendary Mac advert arrived in theaters.

The erroneous claim that Apple’s “1984” ad aired just once continues to thrive. Yes, the ad most memorably ran during 1984’s Super Bowl. But many forget its extraordinary theatrical run. The spot’s earliest showing was, as it happens, at 1 a.m. in Twin Falls, Idaho, on the last day of 1983, so as to make it eligible for ad awards the following year. Ridley Scott directed the “1984” ad. Back then, most knew Scott for making Alien and Blade Runner, although he possessed a strong advertising background. The “1984” Mac ad played on imagery from George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four novella, presenting Apple as rebels fighting a technocratic elite.

They said the infringing technology allowed the companies to make smaller devices while improving their wireless data capabilities.

Wall Street Journal Editorial Board op-ed backs...

The op-ed is a long, logical walkthrough of the claims by Attorney General Barr and the counterclaim on the values of both privacy and encryption.

But at its heart:

Apple is no doubt looking out for its commercial interests, and privacy is one of its selling points. But its encryption and security protections also have significant social and public benefits. Encryption has become more important as individuals store and transmit more personal information on their phones — including bank accounts and health records — amid increasing cyber-espionage.

Criminals communicate over encrypted platforms, but encryption protects all users including business executives, journalists, politicians, and dissenters in non-democratic societies. Any special key that Apple created for the U.S. government to unlock iPhones would also be exploitable by bad actors.

If American tech companies offer backdoors for U.S. law enforcement, criminals would surely switch to foreign...

Robin ProLine Becomes First Doorbell to Support...

Dutch company Robin Telecom today announced that its Robin ProLine doorbell is the first to support HomeKit Secure Video, allowing the camera to capture and store recordings securely in iCloud.

With help from an Apple TV, HomePod, or iPad set up as a home hub, the ProLine doorbell can intelligently detect when motion from a person, animal, or vehicle is captured and store a recording in iCloud. When activity is detected, users will instantly receive a push notification on their iPhone or iPad and can play video clips right from the Lock screen or in the Home app.

With end-to-end encryption, HomeKit Secure Video is billed as a safer option than storing recordings on the servers of third-party accessory makers. A demo of the feature from an Apple Store was recently shared by Zach Truskowski.

HomeKit Secure Video is only available to users that pay for 200GB or more of iCloud storage, starting...

The making of Mojo, AR contact lenses that give your...

FastCompany:

When I looked into the user interface of Mojo Vision’s augmented reality contact lenses, I didn’t see anything at first except the real world in front of me. Only when I peeked over toward the periphery did a small yellow weather icon appear. When I examined it more closely, I could see the local temperature, the current weather, and some forecast information. I looked over to the 9 o’clock position and saw a traffic icon that gave way to a frontal graphic showing potential driving routes on a simple map. At 12 o’clock, I found my calendar and to-do information. At the bottom of my view was a simple music controller.

This is a mock-up, not a shipping product, but still, an audacious concept.

In the coming decade, it’s likely that our computing devices will become more personal and reside closer to—or even inside—our bodies. Our eyes are the logical next stop on the journey. Tech giants such as Apple and Facebook are just now trying to build AR...

Bloomberg:

Apple Inc. has engaged a specialist in drone and aviation law as a Washington lobbyist, suggesting the company is pushing further into the growing field.

The Cupertino, California-based tech giant retained Lisa Ellman, a parter at Hogan Lovells, to conduct the lobbying. Ellman leads the law firm’s Unmanned Aircraft Systems practice. She also co-founded the Commercial Drone Alliance and is working to expand the commercial drone industry, according to her biography online.

And:

The company used drones a few years ago to help it collect mapping data. In December, it met with regulators about a proposed law that would require drones to sport virtual license plates. The company also sells several drones from DJI through the Apple website and Apple retail stores.

Apple has a team exploring satellites, a type of unmanned aircraft, and Ellman could assist in regulatory efforts that would need to be conducted to launch such an effort...

Apple patent filing involves 'earbud stability...

Apple wants to make its AirPods and AirPods Pro fit even better and stay in place even more securely as evidenced by a new patent filing (number 2020021903) for an “earbud stability anchor feature.”

In the patent filing, Apple notes that audio devices along the lines of in-ear headphones often have trouble achieving a size and shape that fits comfortably and stays securely in place for a large cross-section of users. Earbuds in particular often fall short of a design that fits comfortably within an ear of a user while achieving a high level of audio content delivery. 

For this reason, earbuds capable of fitting comfortably and remaining securely within the ears of a broad spectrum of ear sizes and shapes while maintaining that high level of audio content delivery are desired. Apple wants to change this.

Here’s the summary of the patent filing: “An earbud design is disclosed that is configured to sit securely within an ear of...

Acquiring minds want to know: A peek inside Apple’s...

If you’ve heard it once, you’ve heard it dozens of times: “Apple buys smaller technology companies from time to time, and we generally do not discuss our purpose or plans.”

When it comes to its corporate acquisitions, Cupertino likes to play its cards very close to its chest. Of course, that doesn’t stop industry watchers from peering at the tea leaves to see if they can divine exactly what the company might be working on.

And, hey, I’m no different than those folks, because Apple does so little to telegraph its plans that even a boilerplate statement confirming an acquisition is a rare peek behind the curtain. Apple CEO Tim Cook said not long ago that the company makes an acquisition every two to three weeks, and not even all of those make it into the public eye. So let’s take a look at the firms that we do know Apple has acquired recently and see what we can glean.

FBI successfully cracks iPhone 11 Pro in Ohio, puts...

The U.S. government may not actually need Apple’s help to break iPhone encryption, as the FBI appears to have done this on its own.

According to a recent Forbes article, FBI investigators in Ohio recently used the GrayKey hardware box to unlock an iPhone 11 Pro Max. The ‌iPhone‌ belonged to Baris Ali Koch, who was accused of helping his convicted brother flee the country following the Pensacola shooting by providing him with his own ID documents and lying to the police. He has now entered a plea agreement and is awaiting sentencing. 

Koch’s lawyer stated that the iPhone had been locked with a passcode when the FBI took possession of it. The code was never revealed to law enforcement, nor was the defendant forced to use his face to unlock the phone via Face ID.

Apple’s A14 chip could make the next-gen iPhone as...

Apple’s upcoming A14 processor could make the next-gen iPhone as powerful as a 15-inch MacBook Pro.

Per a full rundown by the mighty Jason Cross at Macworld, the processor is expected to move from a 7 nanometer production process to a 5 nanometer production process. This, in turn, could allow for no less than 15 billion transistors, which dwarfs all but the largest high-end desktop and server CPUs and GPUs.

It could also greatly improve what the chip can do in terms of multi-core performance:

The trend line gives us a score around 4,500, but I think a combination of architectural changes and clock speed will give us a lot more. I wouldn’t be surprised if the Geekbench 5 multi-core score creeps up to 5,000 or so.

For what it’s worth, the fastest Android phones score around 3,000 on this test, and a score of 5,000 would be similar to 6-core mainstream desktop CPUs or high-end laptop CPUs. It’s 15-inch MacBook Pro territory.

Hackers Leak 70,000 Tinder Photos of Women

Over 70,000 Tinder photos of women have been dumped in an online forum for cybercrime.

Contextual clues, including particular phone models like the iPhone X seen in the photographs, as well as limited metadata, suggest that many of the (mostly) selfies were taken in recent years. Some of the photos, in fact, contain timestamps dated as recent as October 2019.

Tinder also noted that all of the photos are public and can be viewed by others through regular use of the app; although, obviously, the app is not designed to help a single person amass such a massive quantity of images. The app can also only be used to view the profiles of other users within 100 miles.

    Apple TV+’s ‘The Banker will finally arrive in March

    The Banker will finally arrive in March. Apple told Variety that it did its due diligence around the accusations and has announced theatrical and Apple TV+ release dates, reports Variety. Originally scheduled for January, the film was delayed after someone came forward with accusations of abuse at the hands of an executive producer of the film.

It’s a fact-based period drama about entrepreneurs who tried to circumvent the racial limitations of the 1950s as they turned their business savvy into social activism and decided to help African Americans get loans in Texas.

    When it comes to Apple, even if you’re paying for the product, you’re still the product: sold to app programmers as a captive market, or gouged on parts and service by official Apple depots.

    I guess consumers can’t do anything right. Not only are we a cult, but we don’t even have the power of the free market, instead we’re “sold” to developers.

    iPhone 12 rumors: 'Refreshed' Face ID...

    The 2019 iPhone models haven’t even been officially announced yet, and we’re already starting to see reports about what will be in the 2020 iPhones. We’ve compiled the most notable ones here, but take these with a big grain of salt. Even if these reports are accurate representations of what suppliers are saying, or come from moles within Apple itself, the company’s plans can and do change. There’s still plenty of time before the design and features have to be totally set in stone.

    Update 01/16/20: An analyst from Barclays (via CNBC) predicts the iPhone 12 will have “refreshed” Face ID and a time-of-flight 3D sensor. He further states that the iPhone in 2021 might ditch the Lightning port in favor of exclusively wireless charging.

    Investors Might Now be Valuing Apple Stock Properly

    Apple shares have soared recently, hitting record highs. Writing for AppleInsider, Daniel Eran Dilger argued that this is in no small part down to investors and analysts starting to properly value AAPL.

    It certainly appears that Apple’s historically low valuation in terms of Price to Earnings—its stock valuation compared to its ability to generate profits—is tied directly to one of the largest mistakes made by tech industry investment analysts over the past decade: the idea that Apple’s iPhone was a fluke product that would rapidly be commodified and overrun by an army of cheaper, less restricted and more “open” handsets running Google’s Android… This assumption was grounded on the 1990’s history of the Macintosh, which began to perform well for Apple for just a few years before Microsoft copied its foundational concepts and spread them across generic PCs…

    Microsft pledged to become carbon negative by 2030 on Thursday. It made the declaration in a new blog post. Led by Lisa Jackson, Apple has made strides in this regard too, including financing a carbon-free aluminum smelting process.

    By 2030 Microsoft will be carbon negative, and by 2050 Microsoft will remove from the environment all the carbon the company has emitted either directly or by electrical consumption since it was founded in 1975. We recognize that progress requires not just a bold goal but a detailed plan. As described below, we are launching today an aggressive program to cut our carbon emissions by more than half by 2030, both for our direct emissions and for our entire supply and value chain. We will fund this in part by expanding our internal carbon fee, in place since 2012 and increased last year, to start charging not only our...

    Apple's shares have more than doubled over the last year, but the rapid increase isn't just the result of some temporary irrational exuberance. Instead, as a variety of analysts and observers have noted, it means that investors have formed a new understanding of Apple as a company, shedding their formerly bleak pessimism that valued Apple far lower than the various consumer electronics rivals it has been outperforming.

    An avenue by which it might be technically possible...

    Nick Heer, on the FBI asking Apple for a backdoor version of iOS:

    At no point — then or now — has Cook or anyone at Apple publicly confirmed how such a backdoor may be installed, or if it’s even possible. Presumably, it would use the iOS update mechanism, but how could permission be granted if the passcode to the iPhone isn’t known?

    Nick then takes a Mac with a clean Catalina install, and an iPhone that has never been connected to that Mac, creating a simulation of a stolen, locked iPhone. He then installs an iOS update on that iPhone, all done without entering a passcode.

    That said:

    To be clear, my iPhone still prompted for its passcode when the update had finished its installation process. This did not magically unlock my iPhone. It also doesn’t prove that passcode preferences could be changed without first entering the existing valid passcode.

    But it did prove the existence of one channel where an iPhone could be forced to update to a...

    How to use your iPhone as an encrypted Google...

    Android users have been able to use their phones as Google security key for a while now, and now Google is finally making good on the promise to bring the same functionality to the iPhone. An update to the Google Smart Lock app this week turns your iPhone into an honest-to-goodness FIDO2 key, using the Secure Enclave to skip SMS and keep your accounts safe.

    It only works with Google accounts so far, but it’s a great tool for security-minded users. Instead of relying on one-time passwords delivered over SMS, you’ll be able to use your iPhone to log into your account on another PC, Mac, or iOS device quickly and securely without spending money on a separate hardware key. This method doesn’t work on Android phones and any browser activity will need to be done using Chrome. Any iPhone with a Secure Enclave will work, which is any phone after the iPhone 5S. (It's unclear if the iPhone 5S supports the feature, as it packs a Secure Enclave but doesn't support iOS 13.)

    The FBI is pressing Apple to help it break into a terrorist's iPhones, but the government can hack into the devices without the technology giant, according to experts in cybersecurity and digital forensics. From a report: Investigators can exploit a range of security vulnerabilities -- available directly or through providers such as Cellebrite and Grayshift -- to break into the phones, the security experts said. Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani, the perpetrator of a Dec. 6 terrorist attack at a Navy base in Florida, had an iPhone 5 and iPhone 7, models that were first released in 2012 and 2016, respectively. Alshamrani died and the handsets were locked, leaving the FBI looking for ways to hack into the devices. "A 5 and a 7? You can absolutely get into that," said Will Strafach, a well-known iPhone hacker who now runs the security company Guardian Firewall. "I wouldn't call it child's play, but it's not super difficult." That counters the U.S. government's stance. Attorney General William...

    The Apple streamer has picked up the documentary about the legendary hip-hop group directed by Spike Jonze and featuring Grammy Award-winning bandmembers Mike Diamond and Adam Horovitz talking about their music career and 40-year friendship.

    And:

    A special cut of the feature documentary will open exclusively in select Imax theaters for a limited run from April 3, before the film debuts globally on Apple TV+ on April 24.

    Looking forward to this one. Hoping there’s a good amount of focus on Def Jam and Rick Rubin. From the Beastie Boys Wikipedia page:

    Following the success of “Cooky Puss”, the Beastie Boys began to incorporate rap into their sets. They hired a DJ for their live shows, New York University student Rick Rubin, who began producing records soon thereafter. He formed Def Jam Recordings with fellow NYU student Russell...

    iPhone 12 models will feature a "refreshed" front-facing TrueDepth system that benefits Apple supplier Lite-On Semiconductor, according to Barclays analysts Blayne Curtis, Thomas O'Malley, and Baylie Harri. This suggests that Face ID could be improved on iPhone 12 models, but no specific details were provided.

    In a research note provided to MacRumors, the analysts added that the rear-facing camera system on iPhone 12 Pro models will feature 3D sensing based on a time-of-flight solution, as widely rumored. They also expect iPhone 12 Pro models to be equipped with 6GB of RAM, up from 4GB in iPhone 11 Pro models.

    Apple has filed for a patent (number 20200019367) that shows the company is at least considering Mac laptops with touchscreens despite its constant denial that it plans such a device. 

    Dubbed “cross device interactions," it doesn't directly address such a portable, but the images and details in the filing offer hints. For example, “electronic device 5012” is for a laptop display with a touchscreen.

    In the patent filing, Apple notes that a user sometimes interacts with multiple devices to access content stored on or accessible through the respective devices. However, some devices have or are connected to displays that are less optimal for viewing content. 

    What's more, Apple says the user is sometimes more comfortable with using certain input devices to interact with content. The tech giant says it wants to improve methods for performing these navigations and animating the transition between related user interfaces

    Apple's AI Acquisition of Xnor.ai Leaves Some...

    Apple's recent purchase of Seattle-based AI company Xnor.ai is leaving Wyze's affordable cameras without the people detection feature. The Verge reports: Cameras from fellow Seattle-based company Wyze, including the Wyze Cam V2 and Wyze Cam Pan, have utilized Xnor.ai's on-device people detection since last summer. But now that Apple owns the company, it's no longer available. Some people on Wyze's forum are noting that the beta firmware removing the people detection has already started to roll out. Oddly enough, word of this lapse in service isn't anything new. Wyze issued a statement in November 2019 saying that Xnor.ai had terminated their contract (though its reason for doing so wasn't as clear then as it is today), and that a firmware update slated for mid-January 2020 would remove the feature from those cameras.

    There's a bright side to this loss, though, even if Apple snapping up Xnor.ai makes Wyze's affordable cameras less appealing in the interim. Wyze says that it's...

    Save iCloud storage costs with Family Sharing

    The more images and videos we capture and import, the easier it is to need a higher-capacity iCloud storage plan if we also use iCloud Photos for syncing. With Family Sharing, you can potentially save a modest to significant sum each year by pooling storage across two or more people.

    iCloud storage comes in just four tiers: the free 5GB level available to all iCloud users, and then paid tiers of 50GB, 200GB, and 2TB, which cost $0.99, $2.99, and $9.99 per month in the United States.

    Family Storage lets you pool 200GB and 2TB plans among the up to six members that can be in a Family Sharing group. (I have often wondered if Apple knows larger families.) While it’s pooled, access remains fully restricted to each member: you can’t see the files of other family members.

    What we might expect from Apple's A14 processor

    We aren’t likely to hear anything about Apple’s new phone processor until September when the company unveils the iPhone 12. But it takes years to design these chips and months to get production ramped up, so the A14 is likely already set in stone and has probably begun test production.

    Year after year, Apple’s phone chips have held the crown for overall performance, and despite some big promises from the likes of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865, we expect Apple to hold the crown when the new iPhones are released this year.

    The report says that FBI investigators in Ohio recently used the GrayKey hardware box to unlock an iPhone 11 Pro Max.

    Fortnite for iOS has just gone through yet another hefty update, Epic Games announcing improved compatibility with joysticks as well as 120 frames per second gameplay available on compatible devices for the first time with the new version.

    Joysticks were already compatible with Fortnite on iOS, which includes the Xbox One S and PlayStation 4 controllers, but players can now also fully use the thumbstick clickable buttons (L3 and R3). In addition to the new feature, the update brings something that certainly improves the gameplay for iPad users.

    The new version of Fortnite now takes full advantage of Apple’s 12X Bionic chip, which is found on the third-generation iPad Pro, to boost frame rates from 60 frames per second to 120 frames per second, thanks to the ProMotion technology powering the device’s display. This helps make the animations extremely smooth thanks to the doubled frame rate.
