SmugMug, the professional photography oriented company, bought Flickr in April 2018. On November 1, 2018, SmugMug announced changes to its free and paid (or “Pro”) tier. SmugMug said that the 1TB of storage that Yahoo gave free-tier users is not sustainable and that plan is over. Now, SmugMug will let free-tier users retain 1,000 images and videos of any size (even at the maximum 200MB per image).

AWT TV Episode 49: The 80/20 rule, Apple share price...

It's a new year for AWT TV, and Marty & Steve are back to talk about Apple and tech in general. This was our first episode back on the Zoom platform, so things are back to normal...meaning you get to see the intro/outro video once more, we're able to share screens, and more.

We had a lot of fun with this episode! Steve talks about the Insta360 ONE X VR camera he's been playing with, which isn't just a really good VR camera but also has some incredible editing tools for iOS. Marty & Steve talk about the woes Apple has had with share price over the past two months -- as of the time of this show, Apple was in fourth place in terms of company market capitalization. "How far the mighty have fallen!"

It's obvious that Apple has finally reached peak iPhone, and we offer some suggestions to Apple CEO Tim Cook -- who we're SURE was watching the livestream last night -- on how to get back in the game...

A new video claims that the Apple Watch Series 4's EKG feature might waste doctors' time and "in absolute worst case scenario" might conceivably lead to harm. AppleInsider gives in to the clickbait so you don't have to, and shows just how contorted and contrived the whole idea is.

In an interview with CNBC today, the Mayo Clinic’s chair of cardiovascular medicine, Dr. Paul Friedman shared that they have seen promising results using AI to detect an often symptom-less heart defect. It’s called asymptomatic left ventricular dysfunction, which means a weak heart pump. In Mayo Clinic’s studies, they are using AI to read ECGs and finding impressive results identifying weak heart pumps and even predicting individuals who will be at risk in the future.

Amazon, Apple and Google Steal The Show at CES

An anonymous reader shares a report: The enemy of my enemy is my friend, and this week's CES is clearly showing how what was once the way companies did business, has changed, and at the same time, what's old is new again and companies who once fought with each other are finding new ways to be allies. For example, Apple stopped licensing in 1997. Now they're redefining licensing by making it easier for anyone to access their iTunes platform. That's called distribution. What's next? Letting anyone make an iPhone -- I think NOT. Taken on face so far, it's clear Apple, Google and Amazon are dominating CES. News about assistants being deployed by multiple brands, new features and uses of the AI backed functionality and most of all iTunes ending up on Samsung, Vizio, and other smart TV brands. That and pure word play on the famed "what goes on in Vegas, stays in Vegas" line tied to your privacy.

Looking more closely, neither Amazon, Apple nor Google has really introduced any new...

The iPhone XR has firmly taken over the iPhone XS in usage, according to data from Mixpanel. Although Apple seems to be struggling to meet targets on sales across the iPhone line, the relative sales of the XR now means it has overtaken the 5.8-inch iPhone XS, which had a one month sales lead.

However, the iPhone XS Max continues to hold a sizeable lead despite being the most expensive option.

He says the personal digital assistant is used over 10 billion times a month in 21 different languages and approximately 30 countries. Cook said Apple’s goal is to create a global product.

“We’re not in every country yet. We want to be,” he added. “And if you want something that is something that has been created on your device, Siri is the best place to do that. And I think I get more and more great things every day. The quality is going up. You know, voice is a never-ending journey. We all speak a little bit differently. I have a southern dialect, not as southern as I used to. But there's a lot of stuff to do there. But I'm highly confident in our ability to keep innovating like crazy there.

Apple's efforts to modernize its chain of over 500 retail stores around the world may extend to Canada soon.

Apple plans to relocate its oft-crowded store at the Eaton Centre shopping mall in Downtown Toronto to a much larger space in the mall, currently occupied by apparel chain Abercrombie & Fitch, which will also be relocating within the mall as part of the shuffle, according to people familiar with the matter.

Parakilas was an operations manager for Facebook between 2011 and 2012. He spoke publicly last year about how covert data harvesting by third-party developers was routine, just as Facebook was under scrutiny for failing to police developer use of its platform.

Happy 12th birthday, iPhone; a look at some changes...

Today, Jan. 9, January 2019 is the 12-year anniversary of the day when Steve Jobs announced the original iPhone at the 2007 Macworld convention (2007). Considering the retail price of the iPhone continues to rise, in 2018 the iPhone accounted for an average of 61.8% of Apple’s revenue in the fourth quarter of 2018.

BankMyCell, a site for comparing trade-in items for tech devices, has created a visual that shows both the evolution and value comparisons of the iPhone’s technology, bill of materials costs, and retail pricing.

Using teardown estimates from HIS Markit’s benchmarking services, BankMyCell determined how much each iPhone cost to make over the last 12 years. The costs are representative of parts, and don’t account for research and development, logistics, marketing, and other general business costs. Additionally, the iPhone’s cost of manufacturing ($3.80-$8.00) per device wasn’t included, as it wasn’t...

Git Quick-start

Git it easy. It’s a command with some verbs. Let’s start with the init verb, which creates an empty git repository in the working directory (or supply a path after the verb)

git init

Now let’s touch a file in that directory. Once a new file is there, which that new repo as your working directory, run git  with the status verb:

git status

Oh look, you now see that you’re “On branch master” – we’ll talk branching later. You see “No commits yet” and hey, what’s that, an Untracked file! Run git with the add verb, and this time you need to specify a file or path (I’ll use . assuming you’re working directory is still the directory of your path).

git add .


Now let’s run that status command again. And hey, it sees that you now have a staged file (or files). 

Now let’s run our first commit. This takes the tracked and staged file that we just created and commits it. Until we do this we can always revert back to the previous...

Apple has been granted a patent (number 10,176,637) for “synchronized, interactive, augmented reality displays for multifunction devices” that hints at increased augmented reality (AR) features on iPhones and iPads. Such features debuted with iOS 12, so expect the tech giant to take ‘em to the next level.

Per the patent, a device can receive live video of a real-world, physical environment on a touch sensitive surface, so it appears the invention would work with an iPhone or iPad. One or more objects can be identified in the live video. An information layer can be generated related to the objects. 

In some implementations, the information layer can include annotations made by a user through the touch sensitive surface. The information layer and live video can be combined in a display of the device. Data can be received from one or more onboard sensors indicating that the device is in motion. 

The sensor data can be used to synchronize the live video and the...

Apple doesn’t officially participate in the annual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, but this year it’s all over the show. That’s because Apple has been cutting deals with major TV manufacturers to embed support for AirPlay 2 (and in at least one case, the iTunes movie and TV stores) in their 4K HDR televisions, and CES is when TV manufacturers make big announcements.

I’ve heard from some people who are baffled about why Apple would make it so that people aren’t forced to buy an Apple TV in order to get access to Apple’s video content. Those people are, quite frankly, thinking about an Apple that no longer exists, namely one that’s committed to making money on high-margin hardware sales.

Intel announced at CES on Monday that the company is working on a new kind of AI chip with Facebook. The chip, which is designed specifically to improve inference in AI, is set for release in the second half of 2019.

Representatives stated that the AI chip’s goal is to improve what is known in AI as inference. This is the process of taking an AI algorithm and then using it and applying it to new data. In the world of Facebook, for example, that could involve a feature like automatically tagging people in photos.

Intel’s Data Center Group Executive Vice President, Navin Shenoy, said that inference “tends to be a more difficult problem” to solve than some others in AI.

Shenoy also introduced the new class of chips, termed the “Intel Nervana Neural Network Processor for Inference.” Shenoy stated that the chip would handle tasks such as image recognition and classification, especially where social media was concerned. This, in turn, is where Facebook comes in...

While the shower system originally shipped with an iOS app to allow users to customize their shower experience and save presets, HomeKit support was absent. At CES 2019, Moen announced it will be updating the fixture with not only HomeKit support, but Alexa Routines as well. We took a hands-on look at how the integration will work when it launches.

Over at CES 2019, Intel teased its upcoming “Lakefield” processors.

A total of six processors were introduced as part of Intel’s keynote address, all as part of the company’s ninth-generation of Core chips for desktop use. While six are incoming, details relating to only one, the Core i5-9400, was detailed by the chip producer.

The Core i5-9400, which is due in the first quarter, is a six-core, six-thread chip with a base clock speed of 2.9GHx, rising to 4.1GHz when boosted. The unit is made using a 14-nanometer process, the chip features 9MB of cache, a thermal design point of 65W, and onboard Intel UHD Graphics 630.

Apple CEO Tim Cook recently sat down for an interview with Mad Money's Jim Cramer, which aired today at 6:00 p.m Eastern Time. CNBC shared tidbits of the interview this morning, but now the full discussion is available.

Cook covered topics that include Apple's recent earnings downgrade, Apple's performance in China, iPhone upgrades, how well the iPhone XR sold, and more.

When asked about reports that the iPhone XR was a flop, Cook says he calls "bologna on that." The iPhone XR has, in fact, been the most popular iPhone "every single day" since it started shipping out to customers.

Cook did, however, demure when asked about iPhone XR sales relative to other sales, saying only that he'd like to sell more, and that Apple is "working on that."

According to Cook, naysayers have been saying similar things about Apple for many years now, but Apple is focused on the...

SanDisk's Extreme Pro portable SSD is so fast...

While editing a document or spreadsheet directly from a flash drive is trivial, that’s not the case for video, where the interface speed limits performance considerably. WD’s SanDisk thinks they’ve solved the problem with the SanDisk Extreme Pro SSD.

The Extreme Pro uses its internally developed NVMe technology to saturate the USB 3.1 Gen 2 interface, with read speeds up to 1 gigabyte per second. That’s fast enough for users to edit video directly on the drive itself, without the need for copying the file from the drive to a local hard drive, then back.

SanDisk said that the company will deliver the Extreme Pro in spring 2019, in 512GB, 1TB, and 2TB capacity points. The company hasn’t released pricing, however, which is fairly typical for storage companies announcing products before they ship.
