TD Ameritrade enables investors to instantly fund...

TD Ameritrade, which provides investing services and education to clients, has announced what it says is an industry first: the ability for individual investors to instantly fund a brokerage account with Apple Pay through Apple Business Chat in the Messages app on iPhone and iPad. Sunayna Tuteja, head of strategic partnerships and emerging technologies at TD Ameritrade says that, historically, to fund brokerage accounts, investors have had to endure a multi-day waiting period while funds were verified or manage a complicated wire transfer. 

TD Ameritrade is the first U.S.-based financial services firm to offer instantaneous funding for brokerage accounts through Apple Pay with just a touch using Touch ID or a double-click of the side button and glance at your iPhone X or later to authenticate with Face ID.

Using a debit card, customers can deposit up to $10,000 per day through Apple Pay using Apple Business Chat (depending on their bank’s limits). TD Ameritrade has...

German court tosses patent lawsuit filed by Qualcomm...

A patent lawsuit filed by Qualcomm against Apple has been thrown out by a German court in a reversal for the chipmaker after it won a recent court ban on the sale of some iPhones in the country, reports Reuters.

The regional court in the city of Mannheim dismissed the Qualcomm suit as groundless in an initial verbal decision, saying the patent in question was not violated by the installation of its chips in Apple’s smartphones. Qualcomm, not surprisingly, plans to appeal.

This is all part of an ongoing, global battle. In January 2017, Apple filed a lawsuit against Qualcomm, alleging the chip supplier demanded unfair terms for its...

WhatRoute 2.1.12 - Geographically trace online data-...

WhatRoute is designed to find the names of all the routers an IP packet passes through on its way from your Mac to a destination host. It also measures the round-trip time from your Mac to the router, thus enabling you to determine slow links--or hops--in the Internet. WhatRoute can also find dead links, such as routers that don't respond.

  • A geo-location server is queried and the locations of the hosts discovered in a trace or seen active on the LAN, can be plotted on a low resolution map or viewed in high resolution on Google Earth
  • WhatRoute also provides network and port scanning, ping, whois, DNS, and LAN monitoring functions.
  • Find the ASN with which a network is registered and the networks with which it peers.
  • View network flows

Apple replaced 11 million iPhone batteries in batter...

Daring Fireball's John Gruber, quoting an unnamed source, says Apple replaced a total of 11 million iPhone batteries under the $29 battery replacement program that debuted at the end of 2017 and ran through 2018.

Gruber says CEO Tim Cook offered the info at a recent meeting with Apple employees. He has cited the battery replacement program as one of the reasons why the company’s first quarter revenue has been cut.

This all related to the “Batterygate” brouhaha — claims that Apple's iOS software updates for iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 6s, 6s Plus, SE, 7, and 7 Plus were provided to iPhone users under the pretense that the software updates were necessary to deliver enhanced security and performance. 

In reality, however, the updates allowed Apple to slow down the performance of these updated iPhones. This practice is known as "throttling" because...

Rumor: Apple planning a seventh gen iPod touch, USB-...

Japanese website Mac Otakara — as noted by AppleInsider — reports that Apple is planning a seventh generation iPod touch and will likely replace the Lightning port on all 2019 iPhones with USB-C.

Chances the rumors are true, according to the Sellers Research Group (that’s me): 100%. The last time the iPod touch, the last remaining member of the iPod family, was updated was in July 2015. You can currently buy the 32GB version for $199 and the 128GB model for $299, so it remains the less expensive way to access Apple Services such as iTunes, Apple Music, etc. — and the tech giant is betting big on Services revenue.

As for USB-C on all iPhones, it only makes sense. Apple made the move with the 2018 iPad Pros, so moving all its iOS devices to the tech seems like a logical move.

Stuck in macOS Recovery with a language you don’t...

When you start up a Mac while holding down Command-R on the keyboard, the Mac boots into macOS Recovery. In this mode, you can run Disk Utility, access the command-line Terminal app, and reinstall the operating system. But what do you do if you restart your Mac into Recovery mode and a language appears other than one you know?

This doesn’t seem to happen at random, but it can occur when you’ve purchased a computer from someone who installed the system using another language, which can remain in place in the Recovery partition, a separately organized part of your startup drive.

Fortunately, there are a few ways to resolve this.

  • Choose the third menu from the left, which is labeled File when in English, and pick the first option, which is labeled Change Language in English. You should be able to select the language you want.
  • Launch Terminal, which is in the fifth menu from the left, labeled Utilities in English. The apps...

The ZenPod turns your AirPods into a fidget spinner...

Are you into fidget spinners? I’m not, but if I were, I’d probably make good use of the ZenPod.

A fidget spinner is a toy that consists of a ball bearing in the center of a flat structure made from metal or plastic designed to spin along its axis with little effort. Fidget spinners became popular a couple of years ago.

They've been promoted as helping folks who have trouble focusing or those who fidget to relieve nervous energy, anxiety, or psychological stress. There are claims that a fidget spinner can help calm down people who have anxiety and other neurological disorders like ADHD and autism. 

As a former special ed teacher, I’m dubious, but can’t personally vouch for or against the theory. However, as a toy, lots of folks find fidget spinners to be a lot of fun.

So what’s the ZenPod. It’s a $29.99 spinner case for Apple’s AirPods.

It has two integrated high-precision bearings that handle the spinning duties well. The ZenPod also looks and...

Wi-Fi, similar signals don’t cause cancer

And now for a bit of good news: Apparently Wi-Fi and similar signals don’t cause cancer.

Per an article over on HowStuffWorks, everyday devices such as Wi-Fi routers, smartphones, tablets, and computers are unable to cause cancer, and would be unable to do so without rewriting the basic laws of physics and biology.

The piece, which cites credible sources like the American Cancer Society, there have been two types of studies that look at RF radiation: Ones that observe human cancer rates and others involving lab animals. The human studies haven’t found a link between increased cancer rates and people exposed to a significant amount of RF radiation.

In the animal lab studies, no link between cancer and RF radiation has been found. However, some studies have observed “trace biological changes” that could be hypothetically linked to cancer. In short, this means that a scientist found an interesting data point but it isn’t serious enough to say anything other...

How to scan QR codes in iOS 12

iOS 12 supports QR codes. A QR code (quick response code) is a type of 2D bar code that is used to provide easy access to information through a smartphone. In this process, known as mobile tagging, the smartphone's owner points the phone at a QR code and opens a barcode reader app which works in conjunction with the phone's camera.

iOS 11 and 12 allows you to scan them without the need for a third-party app. Here’s how:

  • Open the Camera app and make sure the rear facing camera is enabled.

  • Point the camera viewfinder at the QR code. Make sure the code is entirely visible in the view finder.

  • Hold the camera steady. The QR code will be scanned instantly and you’ll see a notification at the top of the iPhone or iPad screen describing what kind of QR code you’ve scanned (website QR Code, Calendar QR code, etc.).

You’ll see what action the QR code can perform (add event to your calendar...

Apple May Be Working on 7th-Generation iPod Touch,...

Apple could have a 7th-generation iPod touch in the works, according to new information shared today by Japanese site Mac Otakara.

Several suppliers at CES 2019 reportedly told Mac Otakara that a 7th-generation iPod touch "might" be in development as a replacement for the 6th-generation version.

The site did not provide details on when an updated iPod touch might launch, nor what features it might include.

Apple last updated the hardware in the iPod touch in July 2015, introducing an A8 chip, an 8-megapixel rear camera, and six color options.

The iPod touch lineup was last tweaked in July 2017 when Apple streamlined the available capacity options (32 and 128GB) and introduced new pricing tiers. Right now, the iPod touch costs $199 for the 32GB version and $299 for the 128GB version, with the higher-capacity model's pricing not too far off from the $329 9.7-inch iPad....

The court said that there was indeed probable cause to grant a search warrant, but that it was denied because the request to force the suspects to unlock their devices using biometric authentication "funs afoul of the Fourth...

Apple's operating chief said on Monday that Qualcomm refused to sell its 4G LTE processors to the company due to the companies' licensing dispute. According to CNET, that decision "had a ripple effect on how quickly Apple can make the shift to 5G." From the report: Qualcomm continues to provide Apple with chips for its older iPhones, including the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, Apple COO Jeff Williams testified Monday during the US Federal Trade Commission's trial against Qualcomm. But it won't provide Apple with processors for the newest iPhones, designed since the two began fighting over patents, he said. And Williams believes the royalty rate Apple paid for using Qualcomm patents -- $7.50 per iPhone -- is too high.

The FTC has accused Qualcomm of operating a monopoly in wireless chips, forcing customers like Apple to work with it exclusively and charging excessive licensing fees for its technology. The FTC has said that Qualcomm forced Apple to pay licensing fees for its technology...

Feds Can't Force You To Unlock Your iPhone With...

A California judge has ruled that American cops can't force people to unlock a mobile phone with their face or finger. The ruling goes further to protect people's private lives from government searches than any before and is being hailed as a potentially landmark decision. From a report: Previously, U.S. judges had ruled that police were allowed to force unlock devices like Apple's iPhone with biometrics, such as fingerprints, faces or irises. That was despite the fact feds weren't permitted to force a suspect to divulge a passcode. But according to a ruling uncovered by Forbes, all logins are equal. The order came from the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California in the denial of a search warrant for an unspecified property in Oakland. The warrant was filed as part of an investigation into a Facebook extortion crime, in which a victim was asked to pay up or have an "embarassing" video of them publicly released. The cops had some suspects in mind and wanted to...

Hands-on with Satechi's USB-C Mobile Pro Hub

Satechi USB-C Mobile Pro Hub. Image via Satechi.

With last fall’s release of the USB-C-equipped iPad Pro models, it’s been important to find out exactly which USB-C hubs on the market work well with those iPad Pros…and which don’t. I’ve used several that have had issues when connected to my iPad Pro, but fortunately that’s not the case with Satechi’s $59.99 USB-C Mobile Pro Hub. Today we’ll take a look at the device, the features it offers, and how it works with Apple’s latest iPad Pro models.

Design

I like the Satechi USB-C Mobile Pro Hub for a number of reasons, especially the small size of the device (1 x 3.25 x .38 inches / 2.54 x 8.26 x .97cm). It’s tiny and lightweight (0.8 oz / 22.7gm), and comes in two colors — silver and space gray — in order to match the...

NFS. Not… Dead… Yet…


NFS may just never die. I’ve seen many an xsan covert to NFS-based storage with dedicated pipes and less infrastructure requirements. I’m rarely concerned about debating the merits of technology but usually interested in mapping out a nice workflow despite said merits. So in the beginning… there is rpc. Why? Because before we establish a connection to an nfs share, we first want to check that we can talk to the system hosting it. Do so with rpcinfo:

rpcinfo server.pretendco.com

Now that we’ve established that we can actually communicate with the system, let’s use the mount command (for more on creating mounts see `man exports`). Here, we’ll 

mount -t nfs nfs://server.pretendco.com/bigfileshare /Network/Servers/server.pretendco.com/bigfileshare

Apple Targeting Users of Older iPhones With iPhone...

Apple continues to aggressively market the iPhone XR, with one of its latest tactics being customized emails to owners of older iPhone models with a trade-in value of the older device and a tech specs comparison with the iPhone XR.

An email sent to an iPhone 6 Plus user, for example, advertises Apple's limited-time $200 trade-in offer for that device towards the purchase of an iPhone XR in the United States. The email also states that the iPhone XR is up to three times faster than the iPhone 6 Plus and compares other features.

Apple appears to have started sending out these emails late last year, but we saw several mentions of the campaign on Reddit and Twitter today, suggesting that Apple may have sent out a second wave of emails to additional customers.

HomePod Now Counts Toward Apple Music Device...

When it launched, Apple's HomePod smart speaker did not count toward an Apple Music subscription's device streaming limit. This meant that single-user Apple Music subscribers could stream one song on an iOS device and another on HomePod simultaneously, without one stream ending the other. Recently, this ability has disappeared for many Apple Music users, who are now unable to stream music on both HomePod and an iOS device at the same time.

While single memberships transition to this method of HomePod streaming, Apple Music family memberships will be able to continue to stream multiple songs on both iOS devices and HomePod without any of the streams getting interrupted. Moreover, when HomePod interrupts music streaming on an iPhone, a new pop-up box on iOS displays an option for single membership subscribers to upgrade to an Apple Music family plan.

Otherwise, it’s got just about everything. It’s thin and light. It’s waterproof, drop-proof, and dust-proof. It has a MIL-SPEC shock rating to six feet and IP68 waterproof rated to 10 feet (so you can use it, for example, for snorkeling, but not for scuba diving).

The two-piece design case has a built-in screen protector, not an adhesive one, that doesn’t affect the touch technology of the smartphone.. Its soft grip exterior adds some nice “grippability” to prevent the iPhone from slipping out of your hand. 

It’s...

Rumor: AirPower may have entered production phase

At long last, the AirPower charging mat might have entered production.

Hong Kong website ChargerLAB cites a “credible source” within Apple’s supply chain who claims Chinese manufacturer Luxshare Precision has started production of the AirPower. The source has added that he has heard the AirPower will be released soon.

Luxshare, which is a member of the Wireless Power Consortium behind the Qi standard and also assembles AirPods for Apple as well as the company’s Lightning to USB-C cables, according to ChargerLAB. Reports had suggested Luxshare would be a primary supplier of the AirPower since as early as February 2017.

There’s also a chance that Luxshare might not be the only supplier, as a recent rumor has stated that Pegatron might also be involved in the device’s production.

A few weeks ago, developer Steve Troughton-Smith said he’s heard Apple may have overcome technical challenges with the AirPower and could move forward with a release. Those...

This could qualify as something of a relief.

AT&T and the other big three carriers claim they will stop selling their subscribers’ location data in March.

While optimistic, the company has already missed their June 2018 deadline for this change.

The carriers had already promised to end this practice in 2018, albeit a recent investigation noted that the practice had never ceased. The companies have once again stated that the practice will end.

AT&T offered the following comment:

Last year we stopped most location aggregation services while maintaining some that protect our customers, such as roadside assistance and fraud prevention. In light of recent reports about the misuse of location services, we have decided to eliminate all location aggregation services—even those with clear consumer benefits. We are immediately eliminating the remaining services and will be done in March.

T-Mobile has stated that it also plans to stop,...

The survey results were published in the Journal of the American Medical Association this week by doctors at UC San Diego Health, one of the first hospitals and clinics to make Apple Health Records available to its patients.

The AirPlay 2 news from CES has changed my classroom...

At the beginning of every school year, each person on our staff has to put together three personal goals for the year. The goals need to be a way for you to stretch yourself professionally and accomplish certain tasks. One of the projects I put on my goals for this year was to overhaul our classroom AV setup. Right now, teachers have projectors on portable carts. Our building is 80+ years old (full of concrete), so running ceiling mounted projectors is a labor-intensive project as additional power outlets need to be installed for each classroom. I also then have to consider the cost of projector maintenance, running AV cables back to the proper location, and difficulty of upgrades in the future.

I know some schools have been using Apple TVs, but I’ve been hesitant because it always felt like complete overkill because we’d just use it for AirPlay functionality in the classroom. When you figure in the cost of an...

Apple granted a patent for over-the-ear headphones...

There are rumors that Apple will release Apple-branded over-the-ear headphones this year along with its AirPods and Beats-branded product. And the tech giant has been granted a patent (number 10,178,463) for such a product.

The patent involves a pair of headphones including an adjustable headphone band. The headphone band can include an inner member and an outer member. The headphones can further include a braking mechanism disposed between the inner member and the outer member, and an earcup attachment feature. In some embodiments, the braking mechanism can include a brake pad and a brake pad cover.

In the patent filing, Apple notes that, in many over-the-ear headphones, the headphone band is adjustable allowing the headphones to securely fit heads of various shapes and sizes. Some adjustable headphone bands include a ratcheting mechanism with discrete locking positions. 

When a listener wears the headphone on their head and adjusts the length, extra pressure...
