Comment: As Apple dominates smartwatch market,...

When it comes to the smartwatch market, there’s Apple and then everyone else. The most recent data suggests that the Apple Watch has as many sales as all other smartwatch models put together. Garmin smartwatches fall into fourth place.

Apple has a sizable lead with a 50 percent share of the smartwatch market […]

Those shipment numbers put Apple at the top of the smartwatch industry, with Fitbit in a distant second at 5.5 million units shipped in all of 2018. Samsung is in third with 5.3 million units shipped, followed by Garmin at 3.2 million.

But unusually, Apple doesn’t offer the most expensive model among mainstream brands …

Judge dismisses ‘whistleblower lawsuit’ against Apple

A California federal judge on Tuesday nixed a whistleblower’s suit accusing Apple of bringing two trainers from India into the country using B-1 visas instead of the more expensive and necessary H1-B visas, ruling there's "no exhaustive list or case law of all permissible activities" under the B-1, reports Law360.

A B visa is one of a category of non-immigrant visas issued by the U.S. government to foreign citizens seeking entry for a temporary period. The two types of B visa are the B-1 visa, issued to those seeking entry for business purposes, and the B-2 visa, issued to those seeking entry for tourism or other non-business purposes

Bloomberg says that Apple is still hustling to sing up TV and movie studios for its upcoming video streaming service.

The article says cable TV networks like HBO, Showtime, and Starz are expected to make a deal with the company. However, they’re apparently holding out until the last minute to get the best deal from the tech giant.

Apple’s streaming service will almost certainly be announced at the March 25 “It’s Showtime” event. The company has 30 scripted series in the works.

Spotify accuses Apple of anti-competitive practices

Spotify has filed an anti-competition complaint about Apple with the European Commission, claiming the Cupertino, California-based company limited innovation and constraining user choice by refusing to allow Spotify and other firms access to technology and information via the App Store.

"Apple is both the owner of the iOS platform and the App Store —and a competitor to services like Spotify,” Daniel Ek, founder of Spotify, announced the complaint on the company's blog. “In theory, this is fine. But in Apple's case, they continue to give themselves an unfair advantage at every turn," Ek said. "After trying unsuccessfully to resolve the issues directly with Apple, we're now requesting that the EC take action to ensure fair competition."

He adds that if Spotify paid Apple's 30% “tax” cut of purchases made on the App Store as a tax, it would force his company to...

IBM secretly used millions of Flickr photos to test its facial recognition system. IBM claimed it was to help reduce bias in facial recognition.

Despite IBM’s assurances that Flickr users can opt out of the database, NBC News discovered that it’s almost impossible to get photos removed. IBM requires photographers to email links to photos they want removed, but the company has not publicly shared the list of Flickr users and photos included in the dataset, so there is no easy way of finding out whose photos are included.

NBC News got a copy of the data set, and created a tool to help you find out if IBM used your photos without your permission.

Spotify Files Complaint Against Apple With European...

Spotify has filed a complaint against Apple with the European Commission, accusing the iPhone maker of enforcing App Store rules that "purposely limit choice and stifle innovation at the expense of the user experience" and "acting as both a player and referee to deliberately disadvantage other app developers."

In a blog post, Spotify founder and CEO Daniel Ek took particular issue with Apple charging a 30 percent "tax" on App Store purchases. This results in Spotify charging $12.99 per month for its Premium plan via the App Store just to collect nearly the $9.99 per month it charges outside of the App Store.

Ek believes this gives Apple an "unfair advantage," since Spotify is unable to fairly compete with Apple Music's standard $9.99 per...

How to change your music files’ metadata information...

With all the features Apple has crammed into iTunes for macOS, it's a Swiss Army knife of an app (or maybe more like a 20 pounds of potatoes in a five-pound bag). But despite all of its the non-audio parts, iTunes can help you with music files. Notably, you can correct or modify metadata—information about the files—in bulk.

But beware! These changes are made to the files, not just within iTunes, and there’s no warning and there’s no undo.

My strong suggestions before you make bulk metadata changes in iTunes:

  • If you have iCloud Music Library enabled (via iTunes Match or Apple Music), make sure all the files you want to modify have been downloaded to your Mac and aren’t stored in the cloud. (See this September 2018 column on how to make sure your music is locally downloaded.)
  • Make a full backup of your iTunes Media folder. You can make...

Additionally, Apple is said to be "racing" to secure movies and TV shows from partner companies ahead of the event. According to people familiar with the matter, Apple is offering concessions to partners in order to get deals done by a Friday deadline....

Apple invention involves ‘trusted status transfer...

Apple has filed for a patent (number 10,230,722) for “trusted status transfer between associated devices.” It involves secure methods for transferring data between your various Apple gadgets.

In the patent filing, Apple, notes that users are often required to sign in or otherwise register when they desire to access various services by way of their electronic devices. Such services can include, for example, cloud storage, downloadable media or content, subscription programming, e-mail, and the like.

Because it can be important to identify or confirm an actual user when providing these and other device based services, a sign in, registration, or other authentication of a user attempting to access such services can be required or preferable. Apple says that there’s a need for systems and techniques that authenticate added user devices in a more convenient manner than current methods. 

Here’s Apple’s summary of the invention: “The embodiments set forth systems and...

The web at 30: Apple’s place in history

This week marks the 30th anniversary of the web, or at least the date that Tim Berners-Lee made a proposal at the Swiss particle physics lab CERN involving the creation of a hypertextual system that would end up becoming the web as we know it today.

The history of web browsers on Apple devices takes a lot of twists and turns. Fortunately, I’ve been around for most of them. In fact, my first magazine cover story ever was in July 1996 about the first big browser war. You might be surprised just how much impact Apple has had on the development of the web itself.

Bloomberg says Apple is rushing to finalize deals with networks like HBO, Showtime and Starz ahead of the March 25 event. There is apparently a Friday deadline, with Apple ‘offering concessions’ to secure deals. The report also implies that Apple will debut its new Apple credit card offering on stage, alongside the TV and magazine/news subscription service.

Once again, it’s the beta code that provides some of the best hints as to what’s on the horizon.

As such, hints of an Apple News subscription service that would provide access to magazines and paywalled news content have been spotted in the macOS 10.14.4 beta builds.

Developer Steve Troughton-Smith shared a number of screenshots from the beta, complete with notifications from the Apple News subscription service, which will alert subscribers when new issues of their favorite magazines are available. Similar subscription information has also already been seen in iOS 12.2, with the subscription service called “Apple News Magazines.” 

The magazine subscription service is based on Texture, the digital magazine app the company purchased in 2018. The Texture app, which can still be found on the App Store, offers access to more than 200 magazines, all for a $9.99/month subscription fee.

It’s likely Apple’s built-in Apple News magazine subscription service will...

You can now play PlayStation 4 games on your iPhone with Sony’s official PS4 Remote Play app! You’ve been able to stream games for years with the unofficial R-Play app, but we’re happy to see official support from Sony itself. And for free!

Just don’t get the impression that this is a replacement for your actual PS4. Yes, it lets you control games straight through your iPhone, but it’s essentially a streaming service that merely beams the games that are playing on your PS4 to your iPhone. The iPhone doesn’t host the games themselves as you might expect from a Nintendo Switch, so if you don’t have a stellar Wi-Fi signal, you’re gonna have a bad time.

Chrome 73 Arrives With Support For Hardware Media...

An anonymous reader quotes a report from VentureBeat: Google today launched Chrome 73 for Windows, Mac, and Linux. The release includes support for hardware media keys, PWAs and dark mode on Mac, and the usual slew of developer features. You can update to the latest version now using Chrome's built-in updater or download it directly from google.com/chrome. Chrome 73 supports Progressive Web Apps (PWAs) on macOS. These apps install and behave like native apps (they don't show the address bar or tabs). Google killed off Chrome apps last year and has been focusing on PWAs ever since. Adding Mac support means Chrome now supports PWAs on all desktop and mobile platforms: Windows, Mac, Linux, Chrome OS, Android, and iOS. Chrome now also supports dark mode on Apple's macOS; dark mode for Windows is on the way, the team promises. The VentureBeat report includes a long list of developer features included in this release, as well as all the security fixes found by external researchers....

Altec Lansing True Evo review: Waterproof Bluetooth...

The Altec Lansing name has been around for decades. Over the years, the brand’s fortunes have risen and fallen as its owners have fought to find were the company’s audio gear fits among the hundreds of companies jockeying for the attention of audio aficionados. Over the past few years, Altec Lansing has settled into a reputation for making competent, mid-ranged headphones, headsets, and speakers that offer reasonable sound for a reasonable price.

Available for around $100, its True Evo Wireless Earphones appear to be well-suited to helping the company keep on keeping on with this reputation. They come with an IPX6 water resistance rating, a respectable four hours of runtime between charges, and foam ear cushions that usually mean richer bass and better noise isolation. However, after spending a week with these earbuds, I can tell that, while they do indeed offer a reasonable audio...

Silicon Valley private equity investor implicated in...

Prosecutors charged Bill McGlashan, a founder and managing partner at TPG Growth — which has made landmark investments in companies like Uber and Airbnb — on fraud allegations for trying to engineer the admission of his son to the University of Southern California.

What is particularly damaging for TPG is that McGlashan has positioned himself as a leading voice in Silicon Valley for social responsibility. In addition to overseeing TPG’s late-stage growth investing arm, McGlashan has partnered with other conscious leaders like Bono and Laurene Powell Jobs at The Rise Fund, a TPG investing arm that tries to make the world a better place through investments in things like dairy farms in India.

I’m taking a wild stab in the dark here in saying that his partners are not too thrilled about these revelations, especially since he is “one of the tech sector’s leading proponents of how to invest ethically and for social impact.”

The important takeaway for this Article, though, is the degree to which Senator Warren missed the point: there is significant consumer benefit both to having preinstalled apps and also to Apple controlling the installation of apps. There is a big benefit to suppliers (app developers) as well: the app market on PCs died in large part due to security concerns, which Apple obviated with the App Store to the tremendous benefit of every participant in the ecosystem. Senator Warren’s proposal would make the App Store worse for everyone.

For comparison, Netflix currently has about 140 million paying subscribers, and Hulu has about 25 million.

It’s a big harder to estimate the audience for Amazon's video programming, which includes its library of licensed shows and originals, totaled about 26 million customers in early 2017, according to a Reuters review of internal company documents.

Tech bags and accessories that impress: looking at...

Apple is often both praised and criticized for being a “luxury” tech brand, particularly now that iPhone prices have breached the $1,000 threshold. MacBooks, iPads, Apple Watches — they all look expensive and stylish, in addition to being functional. With so many people shelling out big dollars for the newest gadgets, luxury accessories-makers have decided they want a piece of the action, too.

“Luxury” is relative, though. At the ultra-high end are products like the titanium Gray Aurora iPhone case, which retails for a whopping $3,787. Then there are premium accessories with high price tags, but aren’t too high. The question is whether it’s worth splurging on a nice leather messenger bag when your trusty old backpack...

Scare Off Thieves with Beepify Laptop Alarm

Spend a lot of time using your MacBook in a public place? If you leave the computer for just a minute — perhaps to get a drink of water in a library or to order another latte at your favorite coffee shop — the chances of it “walking away” in someone else’s hands multiply exponentially. Beepify is an app that plays a really loud and annoying alarm if someone tries to steal your Mac, and we have a lifetime subscription to the app for $39.99 (or get a one-year subscription for $19.99). 

Just activate Beepify with two simple clicks when you leave your computer, and it’s protected. If anyone closes the laptop screen, disconnects the charger, or does both, then Beepify beeps very loudly!

Future AirPods could sport mini-displays, buttons

Apple has applied for a patent (number 10,231,044) for a “portable listening device system” that hints at future AirPods with mini-displays and buttons. We’re not talking big displays, obviously, but ones that can indicate battery life, for example. Any buttons on future AirPods would allow you to do things such as easily terminate phone calls.

Though these are interesting details, mini-displays and buttons aren’t the main focus of the invention. Per the patent filing notes, Apple wants to add these features to earbuds that remain light, small, and comfortable while offering great audio quality — and that can be mass produced in an affordable fashion. 

Here’s Apple’s summary of the invention: “An in-ear hearing device having an ear interfacing portion integrally formed with an elongated stem portion, wherein the ear interfacing portion extends away from the elongated stem portion; a first acoustic port formed in the ear interfacing portion; a speaker disposed in the...

A webcam can be easily misused—and sometimes hijacked by malicious software. While macOS has been generally free of malware that can tap into the camera, and Apple has a hardware-linked green LED that can’t be disabled in software when the camera is active, you may still want to prevent the camera from being used at all.

This typically comes up with kids, but it’s also a tool to disable any app from making use, although macOS will always ask (at least once) before granting access. (There’s a security argument to be made that you can use an account with admin access for setting things up, but in your return use, you use a Standard account, which could even have parental controls enabled for your own focus or safety that you can bypass as needed.)

Review: Peeps for your peepers

Do you spend a good deal of time in front of your computer screen or mobile devices? I do. And it’s taken a slight toll on my eyes. As a result, I have a pair of prescription reading glasses.

While working, I have the occasional snack or beverage, which cause my fingers to become a bit greasy. That transfers to the lenses of my glasses each time I put them on or remove them.

Up until March 14th, Apple is giving users a 10 percent bonus credit when they transfer money through their credit or debit card to their account.

What is USB4?

Currently, USB4 is just an agreed-upon idea. The USB Promoter Group recently announced the specification, which hasn’t been finalized or published yet. That spec should get published around the middle of this year, and then USB4 devices can start being built, tested, and brought to market.

Apple has sent invites out to members of the press and other guests for a March 25 "special event." The tagline and animation on the invitation strongly suggest that the company's long-rumored streaming TV service will take center stage.

The invitation is accompanied by the words "it's show time." Apple used the same tagline in 2006 for an event at which it unveiled its then-future Apple TV product. TechCrunch editor Matthew Panzarino tweeted out a GIF of the animation: it is a countdown throwback to old films and film production, again suggesting...

Sprint Takes Out Full Page NYT Ad Calling Out AT...

Sprint on Sunday took out a full-page ad in The New York Times to call out AT&T for its "5GE" network labeling, which actually offers 4G speeds rather than 5G speeds.

In the letter [PDF], Sprint calls AT&T's 5G Evolution "fake 5G" and clarifies that AT&T is not, in fact, offering faster speeds than other carriers who deliver the same 4G LTE advancements that AT&T has enabled such as three-way carrier aggregation, 256 QAM, and 4x4 MIMO.

While Sprint is working hard to deliver mobile 5G and the first 5G smartphone in the U.S., AT&T is hard at work trying to convince you that they already won the race to 5G with something they call "5G Evolution." That is simply untrue.

Don't be fooled. 5G Evolution isn't new or true 5G. It is...

Apple Confirms March 25th Event, Expected To...

Apple is holding an event on March 25th where it's expected to announce its long-rumored TV streaming and Apple News subscription services. The invitation shows an animated countdown GIF with the caption "It's show time," hinting that the new TV service will play a big role. The Verge reports: Rumors of an event at the end of March began last month, saying that the company will reportedly focus exclusively on services. Although, there is always a chance that we could see the anticipated announcements of revamped AirPods, a new entry-level iPad, and the long-delayed AirPower wireless charging pad. This is not the first time that Apple has used this tagline for an event: the company first used it for a September 2006 event where it announced that it would start offering movies on iTunes, along with the first reveal of the iTV (which would be renamed Apple TV on release in 2007). It's certainly a fitting teaser for the upcoming event. Just like in 2006, we could see Apple's media...
