Amazon tops Apple to become the world’s most...

Amazon has become the world’s most valuable brand, according to the 2019 BrandZ Top 100 Most Valuable Global Brands ranking released by WPP and Kantar at the New York Stock Exchange.

Amazon’s smart acquisitions, that have led to new revenue streams, excellent customer service provision and its ability to stay ahead of its competitors by offering a diverse eco-system of products and services, have allowed Amazon to continuously accelerate its brand value growth, according to the folks at BrandZ.

Technology companies have led BrandZ’s Top 100 ever since its first global brand value ranking in 2006, when Microsoft took the top spot. Rising in brand value by 52% year-on-year to $315.5 billion, Amazon moves ahead of Apple (which is at number 2 with $...

Privacy: What Apple does and doesn’t know about you

Apple of course prioritizes the privacy of customer data, but a new analysis takes a look at what Apple does and doesn’t know about you.

Apple pitches itself as the most privacy-minded of the big tech companies, and indeed it goes to great lengths to collect less data than its rivals. Nonetheless, the iPhone maker will still know plenty about you if you use many of its services …

How to make FileVault work again when you’re missing...

Several months ago, we posted a column called “What to do when FileVault won’t turn on,” which offered a set of strategies when you couldn’t get macOS to let you enable FileVault, Apple’s full-disk encryption (FDE) technology. These worked for some people who have followed up with us. The most severe of the scenarios was the “nuclear option,” which required a full backup or clone of your Mac, erase the drive, reinstalling macOS, and restoring your previous files. This would always re-enable the FileVault capability, but it’s a big investment of time and effort.

I’d put off carrying it out on my MacBook, which had this problem, hoping another alternative would emerge. Fortunately, Rich Trouton has a solution at his Der Flounder site, where he often provides inside into...

Can’t afford Apple’s new Pro display? LG UltraFine...

Unless you have $5,000 (gasp) for Apple’s upcoming Pro Display XDR and another $999 (bigger gasp) for Pro Stand, the only new Mac compatible display you can buy at Apple retail stores and the company’s online stereo is the LG UltraFine 4K Display.

At $699.95, it’s not inexpensive and it certain pales in comparison with the screen on a 5K iMac, but it’s a decent enough monitor that will do until (if?) Apple introduces new displays that the rest of us can afford. 

With a 3840-by-2160 resolution, the 23.7-inch LG UltraFine 4K Display falls somewhere between the discontinued 21-inch LG UltraFine 4K and 27-inch LG UltraFine (hey, Apple, why the latter no longer available?). 

First, let’s look at the good aspects of the new LG display. A single Thunderbolt 3 cable (which is, conveniently, included) provides up to 85W of charging power...

Amazon Surpasses Apple and Google to Become World...

Apple surpassed Google but Amazon usurped both tech giants to become the world's most valuable brand in market research firm Kantar's annual BrandZ brand value report.

According to the BrandZ Top 100 Most Valuable Global Brand ranking 2019 [PDF], the ecommerce giant saw its brand value rise to $315.5 billion, beating second-placed Apple's $309.5 billion evaluation and Google's $309 billion in third. Apple's brand value saw a 3 percent rise over last year, while Google saw a 2 percent rise, but Amazon outshone both with a whopping 52 percent gain.

Amazon's rise to the top spot ends a Google-Apple duopoly that began in 2007 when Google surpassed Microsoft to capture the No. 1 rank. Apple and Google had since jostled amongst each other for the position, but Google took the top spot from Apple in 2018.

With US iPhones currently made in China, there has been much concern about the escalating trade war between the two countries. The worst-case scenario would be a 25% tariff on iPhones entering the US, which would either push up prices, hurt Apple’s bottom line, or both.

But Foxconn has said that the iPhone would be able to escape this fate, as the assembler has enough capacity in other countries to supply all US iPhones …

All the ways iOS 13 is going to be faster than iOS 12

Apple announced a slew of new features coming to iOS 13 at WWDC. But you probably shouldn't worry about all those fancy new capabilities slowing your iPhone to a crawl.

In fact, Apple Senior VP Craig Federighi opened the iOS 13 section of the WWDC keynote by saying "nothing is more important to our iPhone users than performance. So this year, we worked top-to-bottom making everything faster that you do the most."

Here are the ways you can expect your iPhone to get even faster when iOS 13 is released this fall.

Faster Face ID

Apple updates release dates, says 2019 Mac Pro, Pro...

Apple has published something of a release date for its 2019 Mac Pro/Ultimate Cheese Grater of Power and its associated display.

The company, which announced its long-awaited next-gen Mac Pro along with the Pro Display XDR, at WWDC last week, has gone from stating the products would arrive in the fall, to a more specific timeframe.

Apple has since updated its website following the end of WWDC, however, revealing that the new Mac Pro and Pro Display XDR are “coming in September.” This date is listed on Apple’s homepage in an overlay that pops open after clicking on “notify me” under each product, although only in the United States. 

This date has yet to be listed outside of the United States, international Mac Pro pages and other marketing materials still stating that the product is “coming in the fall.” Apple has yet to reply to requests for comment.

The all-new Mac Pro features up to 28-core Intel Xeon processors, up to 1.5TB of ECC RAM, up to 4TB of...

The worldwide market for personal computing devices (PCDs), inclusive of traditional PCs and tablets, is expected to decline 3% in 2019 with shipments reaching 392.5 million units, according to the latest forecast from the International Data Corporation (IDC) Worldwide Quarterly Personal Computing Device Tracker

The research group anticipates the decline to continue through 2023 with unit shipments reaching 367.7 million and a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of -1.6%.

Despite the long-term decline, 2019 is shaping up to be an interesting year as the dollar value of the market will remain roughly flat at $237 billion amid a unit decline. Average selling prices (ASPs) for the entire market are expected to rise by 2.6% in 2019 driven by new technologies, such as thinner bezels on notebook screens that have increased demand for 2-in-1 form factors, and ongoing...

If you have an iPhone 8 Plus, this could come in handy.

Apple on Monday released iOS 12.3.2, which addresses a Portrait Mode bug that some iPhone 8 Plus owners have been experiencing.

The update can be accessed by going to Settings > General > Software Update. iOS 12.3.2 comes just two weeks after iOS 12.3.1, another bug-fixing update. The bug caused some 8 Plus models to capture Portrait Mode photos without the depth effect.

If you’ve had a chance to try iOS 12.3.2 and have any feedback to offer, please let us know about your experience in the comments.

Fitbit Charge 3 vs Inspire HR: Which advanced...

If you’re looking for a new wearable with a screen that counts your steps, receives notifications, and can withstand a dunk in the pool, you don’t have to buy an expensive smartwatch. Nor do you have to settle for an outdated fitness tracker on eBay. Fitbit makes a pair of fitness trackers that strike a balance between smart and sensible without breaking your budget or sacrificing any of the modern features you want in a wearable. Here’s how they stack up.

Fitbit Charge 3 vs Inspire HR: Size, display, and design
Michael Simon/IDG

While Fitbit’s Versa and Ionic devices have giant square faces with big color screens, the Charge 3 and Inspire HR bands are much smaller and sleeker. The Inspire is quite a bit smaller than the Charge 3, but either of the three will fit any sized wrist.

Save $80 on TotalAV Antivirus Protection

TotalAV also protects your privacy online with  a built-in VPN

Not long ago, antivirus software was practically a requirement for every new computer due to the onslaught of viruses, malware, and other threats. Nowadays, most users seem to ignore these threats and rely on the anti-malware capabilities built into macOS and iOS.

Unfortunately, these programs only do the bare minimum when it comes to protecting your devices, meaning you’re still vulnerable to threats from multiple angles. What’s more, if you have multiple computers on different operating systems, your standard antivirus program certainly won’t do an adequate job of protecting you on all fronts.

Going the distance with Apple Watch and Pokémon GO

Niantic’s Pokémon GO mobile app was an instant hit when it launched in the summer of 2016. Augmented reality-driven gameplay let players interact with familiar characters in an immersive way using the camera and screen on our phones. Unpredicted growth saw Niantic’s servers regularly struggle to keep up with the number of new players coming online around the world.

Those growing pains are now a thing of the past, and Niantic has added features like battling between players and in-game missions to keep players coming back. The feature that continues to keep me playing today is actually one designed to help you open the app less.

iOS 12.3.2 fixes a camera bug but doesn’t do much...

Enlarge / The iPhone 8 Plus has a dual-camera setup. (credit: Samuel Axon)

Today, Apple is pushing out a new update to iOS, its software for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch—but this update is targeted at fixing an issue on just one device: the iPhone 8 Plus.

iOS 12.3.2 doesn't seem to do anything else worth remarking upon. Apple's notes simply say:

iOS 12.3.2 resolves an issue that could cause Camera to capture Portrait mode photos without depth effect on some iPhone 8 Plus devices.

Updates don't get much more minor than this. Apple typically releases updates that contain new features for macOS, iOS, watchOS, and tvOS simultaneously. But sometimes the company updates only one operating system at a time when it's a targeted bug fix, as is the case here. If you don't have...

Apple Shares New Shot on iPhone XS Video With...

Apple this afternoon shared a new video in its ongoing "Shot on iPhone" series, this time showcasing the work of photojournalist Christopher Anderson, who Apple says is known for "magnetic portraiture."

In the video, which is in portrait orientation and meant to be watched on an iPhone, Anderson provides some tips on what he pays attention to when creating a portrait of a person.

Anderson says he takes into account lighting conditions and interesting backgrounds when setting up to take photographs, as well as anticipating the movements of his subjects and the look of the foreground and background to get the perfect shot.

To add color and intrigue, he plays with props or an object that can create shadows of reflections to define subjects and obscure parts of the image that might be distracting. He uses things like keys, glasses, bottles and mirrors to experiment with different looks.

Post processing is also important, and be says that he uses a lot of...

Why use both Text Message Forwarding and Messages in...

It can sometimes be tricky to tease out the difference between two similar iOS or macOS features that aren’t quite identical. The option on an iPhone to enable Text Message Forwarding to other devices and the Messages in iCloud feature are a case in point. If you’re forwarding text messages, then why do you need to use iCloud at all? It has to do with notifications and availability.

The Messages app in iOS and macOS keeps some sense of “presence,” or which device you’ve interacting with. When a message arrives, the Apple ecosystem tries to prompt you first at the device you’re actively using or most recently used.

Without Text Message Forwarding enabled in Settings > Messages, only Apple’s iMessages (messages in blue bubbles) appear on all your devices and use presence to figure out which one to prioritize. Otherwise, text messages (in green bubbles)—whether plain text SMS or rich-media MMS—show up only on your iPhone. Text Message Forwarding honors...

Apple may have changed the volume controls in iPadOS and iOS 13 to be less in-your-face, but that’s not the case with Siri.

That might change in a future update. As MacRumors reports, Apple VP Craig Federighi responded to iPad fan Juliano Rossi's question about Siri’s interface with a hopeful yet vague response: “What you describe is certainly valid feedback. Unfortunately, it's not something we...

G20 Agrees To Push Ahead With Digital Tax

Group of 20 finance ministers agreed over the weekend to compile common rules to close loopholes used by global tech giants such as Facebook to reduce their corporate taxes, a copy of the bloc's draft communique obtained by Reuters showed. From the report: Facebook, Google, Amazon, and other large technology firms face criticism for cutting their tax bills by booking profits in low-tax countries regardless of the location of the end customer. Such practices are seen by many as unfair. The new rules would mean higher tax burdens for large multinational firms but would also make it harder for countries like Ireland to attract foreign direct investment with the promise of ultra-low corporate tax rates. "We welcome the recent progress on addressing the tax challenges arising from digitization and endorse the ambitious program that consists of a two-pillar approach," the draft communique said. "We will redouble our efforts for a consensus-based solution with a final report by 2020."...

It’s a travel size, wireless audio transmitter that can pair with one or two sets of AirPods or other Bluetooth headphones.

The Bluetooth range is approximately 30 feet.

The FlyTunes sports two folding prongs to plug into a single- or dual-output, so it works with any model of aircraft. It also comes with a short AUX cord that allows you to plug into AUX output locations. In addition to airplanes, it works with fitness machines, televisions, stereos, and portable gaming systems, such as the Nintendo Switch.

Apple is listening

Marco Arment:

The “trash can” 2013 Mac Pro addressed only a fraction of the needs solved by the previous “cheese grater” towers, aged quickly without critical upgrade paths, and suffered from high GPU-failure rates from its cooling solution — all because its design prioritized size and appearance over performance and versatility in the one Mac model that should never make that tradeoff.

Over the next few years, it became clear that the Mac Pro was an embarrassing, outdated flop that Apple seemed to have little intention of ever updating, leaving its customers feeling unheard and abandoned. I think Apple learned a small lesson from it, but they learned a much bigger one a few years later.

And:

By the end of 2016, in addition to the generally buggy, neglected state macOS seemed to be perpetually stuck in, Apple had replaced its entire “pro” Mac lineup with controversial, limiting products that seemed optimized to flex Apple’s industrial-design muscles...

Farewell then, iTunes, and thanks for saving the...

John Naughton, The Guardian:

The advent of the compact disc in the early 1980s meant that recorded music went from being analogue to digital. But CD music files were vast – a single CD came in at about 700MB.

And:

In 1993, researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute in Germany came up with a way of shrinking audio files by a factor of 10 or more, so that a three-minute music track could be reduced to 3MB without much perceptible loss in quality. They called their new standard MP3.

And:

In 1999, a teenage geek named Shawn Fanning created a neat software system that enabled internet users who had MP3 tracks on their PCs not only to find others with similar assets but also to exchange these tracks with one another. Fanning called his file-sharing system Napster, released it on the internet and in the process changed the world.

Apple Says New Mac Pro and Pro Display XDR Are...

Apple at WWDC 2019 last week unveiled its long-awaited redesigned Mac Pro along with a new Pro Display XDR. At the time, Apple said both products will be available to order in the fall, without providing a more specific timeframe.

Apple has since updated its website following the end of WWDC, however, revealing that the new Mac Pro and Pro Display XDR are "coming in September." This date is listed on Apple's homepage in a lightbox that pops up after clicking on "notify me" under each product, although only in the United States.

This date has yet to be listed outside of the United States, while the main Mac Pro page and other marketing materials still say "coming in the fall," so it is possible this is an error. We've reached out to Apple for comment.

When Apple announced the Mac Pro and Pro Display XDR last week, the company would only say that the products are launching this ‘fall’. The fall date was noted in both Apple’s keynote and press releases.

However, if you look at the Apple homepage right now, there’s a link to get notified about forthcoming Mac Pro news. If you click that link, a box appears that readily states the new Mac Pro is coming in September.

Advice needed regarding HomePod stereo set-up

AWT readers, I need your assistance. I’m trying to set up two HomePods as stereo speakers on my Mac. However, I’ve run into a problem.

My home set-up involves a Nighthawk XS router and a “NETGEAR06” home network. When I use the Home app to try to pair HomePods, they appear to pair. But only one will play at time. Or else they play different audio.

The Home app then gives me this message: “HomePod features like airPlay and Personal Request may not work on ‘NETGEAR06’ because it does not support peer-to-peer connections.”

I’ve gone online and enabled peer-to-peer connections for the route. But the problem remains the same. Have a solution? Post it in the comments below. Thanks in advance for your help.

Patent involves a vehicle floor for an Apple Car

Let the Apple Car rumors roll on. Apple has been granted a patent (number 10,308,290) for a “vehicle floor and subassemblies thereof.”

Apple apparently thinks that the floors of current automobiles aren’t durable and protective enough. The tech giant wants to provide a floor structure that distributes forces from outboard impacts and/or minimizes a height thereof to maximize space for other uses (e.g., battery storage). 

Here’s the summary of the invention: “A floor assembly for a passenger vehicle includes a lower floor assembly and an upper floor subassembly coupled to and positioned above the lower floor assembly. The lower floor assembly includes one or more compartments for containing one or more batteries. The upper floor subassembly is a sandwich structure composite.”

Of course, Apple files for — and is granted — lots of patents by the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office. Many are for inventions that never see the light...

Say "Hey Siri" when using an iPad, and Apple's virtual assistant will take over the entire display, obscuring whatever you were doing on the device. Say the same thing to your Mac, however, and Siri responds in a more multitasking-friendly way by appearing in a small window in the corner of the screen, allowing you to drag and drop retrieved items from it.

This less disruptive, more functional implementation of Siri in macOS may well be coming to iPad, although it's unlikely to appear in the first version of iPadOS, which is due to be released this fall.

The research group says that BMIs will expand beyond pure experimental medical use cases, with strong consumer uses developing. They’ll offer the ability to control virtual reality scenarios, enhancing the user experience and immersion level. Consumer BMI devices will also enable compelling wellness functions, such as supporting guided meditation and enhancing sleep quality, according to Juniper.

Apple’s 2019 Mac Pro/Ultimate Cheese Grater of Power seems to be en route for September.

After announcing the 2019 Mac Pro alongside its new Pro Display XDR at WWDC last week, Apple said both products will be available to order in the fall, without providing a more specific timeframe. 

The company has since updated its website for the computer and the display, stating that the products are “coming in September.” This date is listed on Apple’s homepage in an overlay that pops open after clicking on “notify me” under each product, although only in the United States. 

This date has yet to be listed outside of the United States, while the main Mac Pro page and other marketing materials still say “coming in the fall,” so this may or may not be an error. Apple has yet to reply to requests for comment.

Developers will also be able to control an iOS device’s TrueDepth cameras and use Rear Wide and Rear Telephoto lenses. These features, however, will be limited to newer devices, like the iPhone XS/XS Max, iPhone XR, and iPad Pro.

Stay tuned for additional details as they become available.

Almost out of nowhere, Apple is poised to be a major force in mainstream gaming. It’s doing it in its own Apple way, too—not by chasing down the graphics-intensive blockbusters so popular on devices like the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 (or even the PC), but instead by positioning its upcoming Apple Arcade service as a hub for remarkable and tightly focused games that often get mentioned in discussions of whether games are art.

It’s quite the turnaround. Last year I would have laughed if you’ve have told me we’d be at this point today.

'Swift Finally Matches Objective-C in One Major...

The editor of Dice's "Insights" blog argues that Apple's Swift language "has begun to eclipse Objective-C in a key way."

Apple was never shy about prioritizing Swift. As one developer on Twitter pointed out, once Swift dropped, Objective-C documentation and tutorials quickly started vanishing. Since then, the company has iterated on Swift and continued to shy away from Objective-C (except when necessary, such as supporting libraries and frameworks). Swift 5 made an important step forward with ABI stability, which means Swift code worked directly with a binary interface. Before ABI stability, the only safeguard was code was compiled on the same compiler, a fingers-crossed approach Apple really had no option for avoiding...

Swift's performance has also improved. For some time, when compared to Objective-C, Swift compiled slower. Because of ABI stability, performance has improved, and compile-time differences have vanished... Apps written in version 5 are also roughly...

In watchOS 5, Apple offered streaming on Apple Podcasts and Apple Music, but it left out the ability for third-party developers to access it. Spotify used Apple Watch as one of the reasons Apple isn’t play fair with how it treats its own products vs how it interacts with competitors. I argued that Spotify wants all the benefits of Apple’s platform, but...

The Case Against Breaking Up Big Tech Companies

This week The Street ran a new article arguing that "Breaking Up Google, Apple, Amazon and Facebook Is Not the Solution":

The Microsoft anti-trust case twenty years ago showed that judges are reluctant to break up companies even when there are definite signs of market abuse... Technology is a better solution to create competition. Things such as open-source software have made a difference in breaking through technology monopolies. And the third reason is that there are perverse incentives on Wall Street that will always reward winner-take-all scenarios such as that of Amazon, even if they mean massive financial losses for years. An attempt to break up companies or unwind mergers won't cure that impulse on Wall Street that pushes companies to "go big or go home."

Meanwhile, the associate technology editor at Barron's argues that breaking up companies like Google and Facebook "wonâ(TM)t solve the real issues facing tech," arguing that surveillance capitalism "is not an...

WhatRoute 2.2.4 - 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 Wants To Kill the Ad Industry. It's...

"As a consumer, the idea of Apple sign-in is genuinely an exciting one..." writes developer/tech journalist Owen Williams at Char.gd.
"As a person in digital marketing, as well as a coder and startup founder, the feature terrifies me... I don't have a choice. Apple plans to force developers using third-party signin features to add its signin along any competing ones, rather than allowing them to make the choice. Essentially, Apple will force its success..."

[B]y selling the tool as a privacy-focused feature, the company is building a new identity system that it owns entirely. Because it is a powerful privacy feature, it makes it hard to debate this move in any constructive way -- personally, I think we need more tools like this, just not from the very platforms further entrenching their own kingdoms... All of the largest tech companies have switched gears to this model, including Google, and now sell a narrative that nobody can be trusted with your data -- but it's...
