YouTuber saved by Apple Watch’s high heart rate...

Joel Telling, better known as YouTube personality 3D Printing Nerd has attributed his Apple Watch to possibly saving him from prolonged tachycardia. Joel’s watch had alerted him that he was experiencing a heart rate of 120 BPM for over 10 minutes, which prompted him to get to a hospital.

Doctors at the hospital told Joel that he had tachycardia, a condition where his heart was beating faster even when at rest. They then ran tests to see if the YouTuber was experiencing irregular heart rate or embolism, but the results came up negative. The cause of tachycardia was most likely due to stress and dehydration.

Last night was fun. This is me in the ER because of tachycardia, with a pulse over 120bpm. Heart tests are fun....

Europe Plans Law To Give All Phones Same Charger

On Monday, members of the European Parliament (MEPs) discussed the idea of introducing "binding measures" that would require chargers that fit all mobile phones and portable electronic devices. The company that would be impacted most by this legislation would be Apple and its iPhone, which uses a Lightning cable while most new Android phones use USB-C ports for charging. ZDNet reports: The EU introduced the voluntary Radio Equipment Directive in 2014, but MEPs believe the effort fell short of the objectives. "The voluntary agreements between different industry players have not yielded the desired results," MEPs said. The proposed more stringent measures are aimed at reducing electronic waste, which is estimated to amount to 51,000 tons per year in old chargers.

Apple last year argued that regulations to standardize chargers for phones would "freeze innovation rather than encourage it" and it claimed the proposal was "bad for the environment and unnecessarily disruptive for...

As Apple stands firm against requests to break iPhone encryption, many people have questioned why the FBI needs Apple’s help in the first place. There are plenty of tools available from third-party companies that are more than capable of unlocking the iPhone 5 and iPhone 7 used by the Pensacola gunman.

Further emphasizing that point, a new report from Forbes says that the FBI recently used one of those black/gray market tools to unlock the newest — and theoretically the most secure — iPhone that Apple sells.

iPhones Can Now Be Used To Generate 2FA Security...

Most modern iPhones running iOS 13 can now be used as a built-in phone security key for Google apps. 9to5Google reports: A built-in phone security key differs from the Google Prompt, though both essentially share the same UI. The latter push-based approach is found in the Google Search app and Gmail, while today's announcement is more akin to a physical USB-C/Lightning key in terms of being resistant to phishing attempts and verifying who you are. Your phone security key needs to be physically near (within Bluetooth range) the device that wants to log-in. The login prompt is not just being sent over an internet connection.

With an update to the Google Smart Lock app on iOS this week, "you can now set up your phone's built-in security key." According to one Googler today, the company is leveraging the Secure Enclave found on Apple's A-Series chips. Storing Touch ID, Face ID, and other cryptographic data, it was first introduced on the iPhone 5s, though that particular device...

Engadget:

As promised, Microsoft is officially releasing its Chromium-based Edge browser today, which is powered by the same engine that’s behind Google Chrome. Windows and Mac users can download and install the update manually, and automatic updates will start rolling out for Windows users next week.

I’ve been using the new Edge browser since last April, and while I’m also disappointed to see Microsoft cede more control of the web to Google, I can’t deny that it’s a far better experience than before. The revamped browser is fast and easy to use; I rarely run into compatibility issues with websites (since everyone tends to build for Chrome); and I found its privacy settings to be a big step forward for average consumers.

I’m going to try using it for the next week and see if I like it. How about

Apple and M. Night Shyamalan, producer of Apple TV+ show "Servant," are being targeted in a new lawsuit that accuses "Servant" of copying 2013 film "The Truth About Emanuel," according to The Blast.

"The Truth About Emanuel" director Francesca Gregorini claims that "Servant" appropriates the plot of her movie and uses the same "cinematic language," resulting in a "substantially similar feeling, mood, and theme."

Along with parallel plot points, Gregorini says that Servant also features "strikingly similar--and highly idiosyncratic--characters, scenes, directorial choices, and modes of storytelling."

Released in 2013 with Kaya Scoddelario and Jessica Biel, "The Truth About Emanuel" involves a...

This isn’t the first time the iPhone maker has bought AI/machine learning companies. In 2015, Apple acquired Turi, a "machine learning platform for developers and data scientists.” Here’s how Turi was described at the company website: “Turi toolkits simplify development of machine learning models. Each incorporates automatic feature engineering, model selection, and machine learning visualizations specific to the application. There is no faster way to build performant models.”

Why won’t/hasn’t Apple developed this idea further? I agree with Snell when he says, “The elimination of AirPort wasn’t a mistake. The real mistake was not replacing it with a next-generation product that could be the hub of a home network.”

Low Power Mode for Mac Laptops: Making the Case Again

In light of this week's rumor that a Pro Mode -- which will supposedly boost performance on Macs with Catalina operating system -- may be coming, long time developer and Apple commentator Marco Arment makes the case for a Low Power Mode on macOS. He writes: Modern hardware constantly pushes thermal and power limits, trying to strike a balance that minimizes noise and heat while maximizing performance and battery life. Software also plays a role, trying to keep everything background-updated, content-indexed, and photo-analyzed so it's ready for us when we want it, but not so aggressively that we notice any cost to performance or battery life. Apple's customers don't usually have control over these balances, and they're usually fixed at design time with little opportunity to adapt to changing circumstances or customer priorities.

The sole exception, Low Power Mode on iOS, seems to be a huge hit: by offering a single toggle that chooses a different balance, people are able to...

Microsoft today announced the first stable launch of its Edge browser built on the Google Chromium open source project. Microsoft Edge can be downloaded on both Windows machines and Macs.

A beta version of the Microsoft Edge browser has been available for several months ahead of the official, stable launch.

Microsoft's aim with the Edge browser is to provide better web compatibility with improved performance for customers while also making sure there's less fragmentation of the web for developers.

Edge for Mac has been designed to be similar to the Edge experience on Windows, but Microsoft has added optimizations to make it feel more Mac-like. Extensions can be added from the Microsoft Addons store or other Chromium-based web stores like the Chrome...

If you’re looking for a secure external drive that meets both US military and government security standards, there are a number of encrypted external SSD options around. I reviewed one approach a couple of years ago, the iStorage diskAshur 2, which has a built-in PIN pad for entering a seven- to 15-digit code to unlock the drive.

The SecureDrive BT is a similar idea, but instead of a PIN pad, you unlock it via Bluetooth. Specifically, when you plug the drive into your Mac, you can use Face ID on your iPhone to unlock it…

Inflammatory headline aside, this New York Times piece is chock full of interesting quotes:

Executives at Apple have been surprised by the case’s quick escalation, said people familiar with the company who were not authorized to speak publicly. And there is frustration and skepticism among some on the Apple team working on the issue that the Justice Department hasn’t spent enough time trying to get into the iPhones with third-party tools, said one person with knowledge of the matter.

And:

The stakes are high for Mr. Cook, who has built an unusual alliance with President Trump that has helped Apple largely avoid damaging tariffs in the trade war with China. That relationship will now be tested as Mr. Cook confronts Mr. Barr, one of the president’s closest allies.

And:

At the heart of the tussle is a debate between Apple and the government over whether security or privacy trumps the other. Apple has said it chooses not to build a “backdoor” way for...

Apple’s recent AirPods Pro firmware update may have backfired a bit.

The version 2C54 firmware update, which Apple released on December 16th, 2019, was meant to improve the audio quality overall, but seems to have reduced the ability to block some ambient noise at lower frequencies.

Per audio review site Rtins, a new round of tests designed to evaluate the AirPods with the 2C54 firmware update installed found the following complaint:

“After updating to Firmware [2C54], we retested the headphones and our results showed a fairly significant drop in isolation performance, primarily in the bass-range. This means that with ANC turned on, these headphones won’t do nearly as good a job blocking out the low engine rumbles of planes or buses as they did before this update. This review reflects these changes.”

The reduction in isolation has been directly attributed in Apple’s attempt to increase audio quality, and more specifically bass accuracy. Rtings also...

How to use iCloud aliases to send and receive email

Sometimes it’s useful to have an email address that’s not your primary one. You might want to sign up with a service or use it to subscribe to an email list, and not trust that it won’t be reused and deluged with unwanted mail you can’t unsubscribe from.

Apple lets you set up to three additional email-only identities with iCloud.com, called aliases. That lets you preserve your primary iCloud.com address for whatever purpose you like while having these three alternative identities that you can use to filter email and even delete if you want to abandon the address altogether—not an option with your primary iCloud.com address, which is often the account name for your Apple ID.

Ming-Chi Kuo: 5G networks could feature faster...

Per well-known analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the 5G wireless network could offer faster speeds than expected.

Kuo recently offered the following note to investors:

According to our latest survey, the development of the sub-6GHz +mmWave iPhone is progressing as scheduled, and it is expected to ship at the end of 3Q20 or early 4Q20.

While lower-band frequencies can establish reliable long-range connections, they are not as fast as millimeter-wave frequencies. Mr. Kuo appears to believe that some models of the next iPhone will support both these networks, including the ultra-fast ones where available.

Stay tuned for additional details as they become available.

By simply connecting the iPad to the Star mC-Print printer (mCP21LB, mCP31L or mCP31LB) via the standard Apple Lightning cable, or USB-C for iPad Pro, and connecting the printer to the Internet via a wired LAN connection the iPad is able to connect to the Internet without WiFi communication. What’s more, the iPad can communicate with the printer via the Lightning cable and the printer will also charge the iPad.

The mC-Print series features 58mm and 80mm...

United States President Donald Trump this afternoon weighed in on a disagreement between Apple and the FBI, calling on Apple to "step up to the plate" and "help our great country" by unlocking the iPhones used by Florida shooter Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani.

Trump said that the U.S. is "helping Apple all of the time" but Apple refuses to "unlock" smartphones used by "killers, drug dealers and other violent criminal elements."

The Twitter rant comes following a request yesterday from U.S. Attorney General William Barr, who asked Apple to unlock the iPhone 5 and iPhone 7 used by Alshamrani. Barr complained that Apple had provided "no substantive assistance" and said that it is critical "that the public be able to get access to digital evidence."

My AirPods Pro made me wonder if I was going nuts over the holiday break. For a couple months, I loved the way they delivered me from the cacophony of San Francisco’s rush-hour trains and buses. Then suddenly they were no longer doing the trick. Hearing the roar of the train itself was bad enough (compared to what I’d gotten used to), but now the chatter of skateboarders and those annoying wearable speakers were more easily muscling their way into my eardrums as well.

I briefly considered trying Federico Viticci’s memory foam mod for better sound isolation. I took to cranking up the volume on my music all the way—as I used to do with the regular AirPods—even though the noise cancellation alone used to grant me peace. I wondered if I...

Another analyst predicts four OLED iPhones this year

In a note to clients -- as noted by MacRumors -- BS analysts Timothy Arcuri and Munjal Shah say Apple plans to release one 5.4-inch, one 6.7-inch, and two 6.1-inch iPhone models this year. While the analysts expect all four iPhones to be equipped with OLED displays, they believe other features like camera specifications and RAM will vary by model. 

This (kinda) lines up with previous rumors. A November report by Barclays analyst Blayne Curtis, who predicted the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max would likely have 6GB of RAM, up from 4GB in the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max. He also expects both models to feature rear-facing 3D sensing and mmWave support for higher-performance 5G.

And last month analyst Ming-Chi Kuo forecast that Apple will release 5.4-inch, two 6.1-inch, and 6.7-inch models in the second half of the year.

10 Long Press Tips to Reveal Hidden Functions in...

On iPhone and iPad, a long press (also known as a press-and-hold) gesture will often initiate a different action in an app that isn't immediately obvious, such as revealing an icon's contextual menu. On recent iPhones, a long press will sometimes also offer haptic feedback in the form of a vibration, which Apple calls Haptic Touch.

Apple has made extensive use of the long press gesture and ‌Haptic Touch‌ in its apps, which means if you don't tend to long press screen elements, you could be unaware of some convenient shortcuts to everyday actions, or you could even be missing out on app functionality altogether.

iOS and iPadOS 13.3.1: The second developer beta has...

Another week, another iOS beta bugfix release. The staggered and piecemeal release of iOS 13 has been anything but smooth. When iOS 13.3 was released, we thought Apple might be done fixing bugs and adding features for awhile (at least until the new year). But lo and behold, the beta releases of iOS and iPadOS 13.3.1 have begun.

Update 01/14/20: After a break for the holidays, Apple is back with the second developer beta for iOS 13.3.1. 

What’s new in iOS 13.3.1

We don’t yet know what’s new in this release. There are no release notes, and no major changes noted by users on forums or social media as of yet. It is suspected that this release will primarily fix more minor problems, like an issue with the communication limits added to Screen Time in iOS 13.3 that could let kids call back unknown numbers if the iPhone was configured in a particular way.

AA20-014A: Critical Vulnerabilities in Microsoft...

Original release date: January 14, 2020
Summary

New vulnerabilities are continually emerging, but the best defense against attackers exploiting patched vulnerabilities is simple: keep software up to date. Timely patching is one of the most efficient and cost-effective steps an organization can take to minimize its exposure to cybersecurity threats.

On January 14, 2020, Microsoft released software fixes to address 49 vulnerabilities as part of their monthly Patch Tuesday announcement. Among the vulnerabilities patched were critical weaknesses in Windows CryptoAPI and Windows Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) server and client. An attacker could remotely exploit these vulnerabilities to decrypt, modify, or inject data on user connections:

  • CryptoAPI spoofing vulnerability – CVE-2020-0601: This vulnerability affects all machines running 32- or 64-bit Windows 10 operating systems, including Windows Server versions 2016...

Apple today released the rack mount version of the Mac Pro, offering a design that is suited to a rack configuration. Priced starting at $6,499, the rack mount Mac Pro features all of the same configuration options as the standard ‌Mac Pro‌.

The base model of the rack mount ‌Mac Pro‌ is the same as the base model standard ‌Mac Pro‌ featuring a 3.5GHz 8-core Intel Xeon W processor, 32GB RAM, and 256GB of storage.

Rumor: Apple working on a 5G-enabled iPad with...

Apple is working on a 5G-enabled iPad with mmWave support, according to DigiTimes (a subscription is required to read the entire article).

mmWave (millimeter wave spectrum) is the band of spectrum between 30 GHz and 300 GHz. Wedged between microwave and infrared waves, this spectrum can be used for high-speed wireless communications. Another part of the spectrum that’s being used in 5G is sub-6 GHz, which includes the portion of spectrum lower than 6 GHz. These bands are effective at providing coverage and have capacity for a wide range of uses. 

Chances the rumor is true, according to the Sellers Research Group (that's me): 90%. Apple is almost certainly working on 5G-enabled iPhones with mmWave support, so such features on an iPad Pro would seem to be a no-brainer.

Dave Bautista joins cast of ‘See’ in Season 2

Dave Bautista is set to join the cast of Apple TV+’s ‘See’ on Season 2. Bautista, known for acting as Drax in the Marvel movie ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’, was also a famous wrestler in the World Wrestling Federation.

Tidy Up is a full-featured duplicate finder and disk-tidiness utility.

Features:

  • Supports Lightroom: it is now possible to search and collect duplicates directly in the Lightroom library.

Apple Responds To AG Barr Over Unlocking Pensacola...

On Monday, Attorney General William Barr called on Apple to unlock the alleged phone of the Pensacola shooter -- a man who murdered three people and injured eight others on a Naval base in Florida in December. Apple has responded by essentially saying: "no." From a report: "We reject the characterization that Apple has not provided substantive assistance in the Pensacola investigation," the company said. "It was not until January 8th that we received a subpoena for information related to the second iPhone, which we responded to within hours," Apple added, countering Barr's characterization of the company being slow in its approach to the FBI's needs. However, it ends the statement in no uncertain terms: "We have always maintained there is no such thing as a backdoor just for the good guys." Despite pressure from the government, Apple has long held that giving anyone the keys to users' data or a backdoor to their phones -- even in cases where terrorism or violence was involved --...
