New MacBook Air powered by 7W Intel 'Amber Lake...




Apple is typically loath to reveal processor parts numbers in releasing new Mac hardware, and the company followed that trend when it unveiled the 2018 MacBook Air on Tuesday. Cross-referencing part specifications with Intel's ARK database, however, suggests the thin-and-light is powered by a just-announced Intel processor from the same family rumored to show up in the MacBook line.

Apple today released iOS 12.1 with support for the digital eSIM that will allow for dual-SIM functionality on the iPhone XS, XS Max, and XR, but eSIM support isn't going to be immediately available from U.S. carriers.

AT&T, for example, is telling customers that eSIM activations are being delayed until later in the year due to technical issues in part related to Visual Voicemail.

According to one AT&T store manager who spoke to MacRumors, retail outlets have been told that AT&T is not supporting dual-SIM or eSIM at the current time, with stores advised not to sell eSIM cards to customers.

Verizon and T-Mobile will also not be supporting the eSIM at the current time, according to company spokespeople who talked to ...

Some thoughts on today’s Apple event

Today Apple announced new iPad Pros, a new Apple Pencil, a new MacBook Air, and a new Mac mini. I was pleased with the announcements — and surprised by some of them. Here are my thoughts:

Since the new MacBook Air and the Mac mini are the “greenest Macs ever” (Apple’s words), they should be offered in green colors!

For those who think the Mac is on its last legs, think again. Apple says there are over 100 million Mac users right now.

However, I was really hoping for a new Apple display. We have new MacBook Pros, a new MacBook Air, and a new Mac mini. C’mon, Apple, we need a new display to go with them.

CEO Tim Cook noted that over 400 million iPads have been sold. He says Apple sold more tablets last year than all the major laptop players combined, making it the “most popular computer on the planet.” Computer? Hey, Tim, what’s a computer?

I still want mouse support for the iPad Pro. If I liked the iOS version of Squarespace better (the blogging...

Apple's New MacBook Air Uses MacBook-Class 5W...

Apple's newly upgraded MacBook Air is equipped with a 1.6GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 Processor with Turbo Boost up to 3.6GHz, a chip configuration that does not match any of the 8th-generation chips that Intel has announced to date.

Intel, in fact, lists only a single 1.3GHz dual-core processor in ARK, which does not line up with the chip Apple is using in the MacBook Air.

Instead, Apple appears to be using an unannounced Intel chip that, according to AnandTech, is part of the 5W Y-Series Amber Lake chips. Intel announced these Amber Lake chips, traditionally used in the MacBook,...

Apple and Blackmagic team up for the eGPU Pro

Blackmagic Design has announced the Blackmagic eGPU Pro, a new external graphics processor featuring the AMD Radeon RX Vega 56 graphics processor. It’s the follow-up to the Blackmagic eGPU that was introduced in July. 

Like it’s predecessor, it’s non-upgradeable. Unlike it’s predecessor, it cost $1,199 (the “non-pro” model is $699). And, sorry folks, if you bought the first version you can’t trade it in for a discount on the new model.

Designed in collaboration with Apple, the Blackmagic eGPU Pro purportedly delivers nearly twice the performance of the original Blackmagic eGPU model and up to 22x faster performance than the built-in graphics on a 13-inch MacBook Pro. It will be available in November.

For gamers and customers using VR software and headsets, the Blackmagic eGPU Pro delivers higher resolution images, higher frame rate gameplay, better lighting and more...

Customers who are affected are seeing their Apple Watches stuck at the Apple logo loading screen after initiating the watchOS 5.1 update.

Apple's New T2 Security Chip Will Prevent...

An anonymous reader quotes a report from TechCrunch: Buried in Apple's latest range of MacBooks -- including the MacBook Pro out earlier this year and the just-announced MacBook Air -- is the new T2 security chip, which helps protect the device's encryption keys, storage, fingerprint data and secure boot features. Little was known about the chip until today. According to its newest published security guide, the chip comes with a hardware microphone disconnect feature that physically cuts the device's microphone from the rest of the hardware whenever the lid is closed. "This disconnect is implemented in hardware alone, and therefore prevents any software, even with root or kernel privileges in macOS, and even the software on the T2 chip, from engaging the microphone when the lid is closed," said the support guide. The camera isn't disconnected, however, because its "field of view is completely obstructed with the lid closed." Apple said the new feature adds a "never before seen"...

Apple Daily Report: You might want to buy AppleCare...

Since Steve and I can’t cover everything, at the end of each week day, we’ll offer this wrap-up of news items you should check out.

Yikes! As noted by AppleInsider, Apple has hiked the out-of-warranty replacement costs for new iPad Pros. An 11-inch 2018 Pro is $499 to replace compared to $449 for last year's 10.5-inch Pro. Replacing the new 12.9-inch tablet will cost $649 compared to $599 for the prior generation.

Analyst Gene Munster of Loup Ventures (www.loupventures.com) says today’s iPad Pro updates are an indication of the blurring the lines between the iPad, the Mac, and the iPhone. Adding tech from the iPhone like FaceID, along with full Adobe apps, Xbox-level graphics, and a USB-C port that we usually associate with a Mac makes its “...

New MacBook Air, Mac mini hands-on: Making old...

Valentina Palladino

NEW YORK—Apple led today's event by talking about two of its most-loved devices: the MacBook Air and the Mac mini. While Apple customers may have loved these devices since their debuts, Apple hasn't shown them much love over the past couple of years.

That changed today with the introduction of the new MacBook Air (which includes updates like a Retina display, Touch ID, and Apple's butterfly keyboard) and a new Mac mini (which got a big spec bump with quad- and hexa-core processors). Today's event brought the biggest hardware changes that both devices have seen in a long time, and yet they still have a lot in common with their predecessors—and that's a good thing.

MacBook Air hands-on: All-new but still very familiar

Apple didn’t waste any time introducing the new MacBook Air at its Brooklyn event Tuesday, and as such, it was the first thing that greeted me when I walked into the hands-on area.

But for a brand new product that’s been rumored and hyped for years, the MacBook Air is very familiar. It still has the classic wedge design and a dearth of ports. It’s still bigger and heavier than the non-Air MacBook. And it still has something of an identity crisis.

People Are Keeping Their Phones Longer Because There...

According to a recent study by Hyla Mobile as reported by the Wall Street Journal, a mobile-device trade-in company, the average age of an iPhone at trade-in is now 2.92 years. That's up from 2.38 years in 2016, and 2.59 in 2017, according to the company. From a report: Part of this, according to Biju Nair, chief executive of Hyla Mobile, is because phone plan carriers moved from a subsidized payment model for new phones, to payment plans, as smartphones got more expensive over the years. Now, if you purchase it from a big carrier like Verizon or T-Mobile as part of a plan package, your phone is basically on loan to you from the carrier, while you make smaller monthly payments until it's paid off and you own it outright. It can take years to pay off a new smartphone (the iPhone XS Max costs almost $1,100), and once you've done it, there's not much incentive to give up that investment -- especially when the newest models aren't much different in terms of specs and performance than...

The second-gen Apple Pencil was revealed today at Apple’s “There’s More in the Making” media event in Brooklyn, the new stylus for the iPad Pro featuring support for gestures developers can assign in their apps.

The new Apple Pencil has a swipe and tap area that can perform secondary tasks, similar to the way the side buttons on Wacom’s own tablet styluses work. Tapping the side of the stylus, for example, can switch brushes in art applications.

The new Apple Pencil also magnetically attaches to the side of the 2018 model iPad Pro, and charges wirelessly.

Apple also improved its pairing system via a tap-and-use system introduced earlier this year with the Logitec Crayon stylus for the 9.7-inch iPad. The updated protocol allows users not to have to plug their Apple Pencil into an iPad’s Lightning port to pair it.

The second generation Apple Pencil is priced at $129. Pre-orders start today,...

Apple rolls out watchOS 5.1, tvOS 12.1, HomePod 12.1

Apple has posted watchOS 5.1, tvOS 12.1, and HomePod 12.1.

According to Apple, watchOS 5.1 includes the following improvements and bug fixes:

  • Apple Watch Series 4 automatically contacts emergency services if you are immobile for about a minute after detecting a hard fall. The watch will now also play a message that informs the responder that Apple Watch has detected a fall and shares your location coordinates when possible;

  • Fixes an issue that could cause an incomplete installation of the Walkie-Talkie app for some users;

  • Resolves an issue that prevented some users from being able to send or receive invitations on Walkie-Talkie; 

  • Addresses an issue where some previously earned Activity awards were not showing in the Awards tab of the Activity app for some users.

Along with iOS 12.1, Apple has released macOS Mojave 10.14.1; both add support for Group FaceTime.

Group FaceTime will allow you to chat with from 2 to 32 people. Apple says it will offer simple ways to add another person, join an active FaceTime call, or use the same camera effects available in Messages to add stickers, filters or appear to friends and family as an Animoji or Memoji. When an invitation is received, people can choose to join using audio or video from iPhone, iPad and Mac.

Apple announces updated iPad Pro models with Face ID...

2018 iPad Pro has been announced and it appears that most of the rumors were true.

Over at the media event in Brooklyn today, Apple announced the new iPad Pro models, which don’t feature a Home button, support Face ID, and replace the Lightning port with USB-C.

The new iPad Pro models have Liquid Retina LCD screens with rounded corners, front-facing 7 megapixel TrueDepth cameras with Face ID support, a 12 megapixel rear-facing camera with flash, stereo speakers, Bluetooth 5.0, Wi-Fi, and Apple’s own A12X Bionic processor. The screen resolution comes in at 3.98 million pixels at 364 ppi at 2388 x 1668.

This also marks the very first iPad model that lacks a Home button, instead replacing this with Face ID, like the iPhone X and newer iPhone models.

Unlike the iPhone, the bezel doesn’t feature a notch, and uses a 5.9mm thick bezel on the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, as opposed to a standard 6.9mm bezel.

Apple says the new A12X Bionic process is 35%...

iPad Pro Hands-on: The first Apple tablet that...

Apple on Tuesday revealed the new iPad Pro, and after the presentation, I got to see the new device up close. Without the Apple logo on the back, the new iPad Pro might be mistaken for a really good iPad competitor. Maybe a Chrome tablet or a Galaxy Tab S. But definitely not an iPad and possibly not even an Apple product.

Even when I picked it up, it still didn’t seem quite as familiar as the iPad. Yes, it’s built well and is as startlingly light and comfortable to hold as the iPad has always been, but there’s a whole new design language here that has more in line with the first iPad than the most recent models. That’s not a criticism. It’s just... different. Based on the Apple logo, however, it’s still a portrait-first device.

Apple's Dual-SIM Tech Ruins Verizon Coverage

Apple's new dual-SIM function, which lets iPhone XS, XS Max, and XR owners use two cellular subscriptions at once, will come to new phones today. But the current implementation will have a huge negative impact on Verizon subscribers who choose to use dual-SIM in the US, PCMag reported Tuesday, citing engineers who have seen early builds of the software. From the report: Dual-SIM, a popular feature in the rest of the world, is largely unknown in the US. Generally, it's used for three things: roaming internationally, where you get a foreign SIM and also keep your local number; having home and work lines on one phone; or trying out multiple domestic services to see which one is better. Apple's dual-SIM relies on one physical SIM and an "electronic SIM" or eSIM, which is activated from a menu or an app. AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon promised eSIM support at launch, but neither Verizon nor T-Mobile will support the eSIM right now. T-Mobile is working on it and will support eSIM when...

So far, it appears that initial impressions of the new tablet are largely positive, with The Verge describing the iPad Pro as "just a giant, beautiful screen" thanks to the reduced bezel size. The edges of the iPad are now flat instead of rounded, which reminded The Verge of the iPhone 4 through 5S design, and the overall feel of the tablet was "much denser and pro" than previous generations of the iPad...

6 ways the iPad Pro refresh makes Apple’s tablet...

The iPad Pro has long been an impressive device (even if you weren’t so hot on that whole “what’s a computer” bit), but if we’re being frank, it had gotten kind of boring. The past few years brought new features and new peripherals like the Apple Pencil, but on the whole it felt little different from the device Steve Jobs showed us in 2010.

That changes today. Apple’s latest iPad Pro retains the feel of the world’s most popular tablet while refocusing it to cater to modern needs and introducing its most significant design change to date. Regardless of whether we’re talking about its ports, its display, or even its means of input, it’s better situated to be a desktop replacement than ever before.

One thing long-time Mac users have been asking for is an update to the Mac mini, and Apple finally delivered today.

The base model of the Mac mini comes with a 3.6GHz quad-core 8th-generation Intel Core i3 processor, 8GB of 2666MHz DDR4 memory, Intel UHD Graphics 630, and 128GB of PCIe-based SSD storage.

The new laptop brings the MacBook Air line up to speed with features that match or surpass those in some of the other MacBook lines. The new laptop starts at $1,199 and is available for order today for delivery on November 7.

Available in gold, silver and space gray, the new MacBook Air uses 100 percent recycled aluminum in its construction. That aluminum is captured during milling of casings for iPads and iPhones, then used in a specially created alloy so that no newly-mined aluminum is required in manufacture.

The new MacBook Air: Everything you need to know

After years of borderline neglect, the MacBook Air finally received the long-overdue update it deserved at Apple’s Brooklyn event on October 30, dragging the ultra-thin laptop into the modern era with a design overhaul and a Retina display.

The previous MacBook Air felt out-of-place in Apple’s current lineup. It was the only Mac without a Retina display. It still used the old keyboard instead of the new low-profile “butterfly” keyboard. It still had a MagSafe connector for charging and USB-A ports. It still used an ancient fifth-generation Intel Core processor. All of these things have since disappeared from Apple’s laptops, but the MacBook Air held on, waiting for a big redesign.

Apple is turning its attention to a range of devices it has not upgraded in recent years. Alongside the new MacBook Air that the company unveiled on Tuesday, it is also upgrading the Mac Mini for the first time in four years, and also has a new iPad Pro in the offering. Regarding the new Mac Mini: It has Intel's 8th generation processors -- in four- and six-core i7, i5, and i3 flavors -- and 60 percent faster graphics. The processor's paired with up to 64GB of RAM (8GB comes on standard) at 2666MHz and up to 2TB of SSD storage -- double the capacity of previous Mac Minis. Overall, it's up to 5 times faster than the previous-gen models, Apple claims, and can drive 4K and 5K Thunderbolt displays and output in three formats. In terms of ports, there's plenty to go around: two USB-A, HDMI 2.0 video, four Thunderbolt USB-C, an audio out port, and a Gigbabit Ethernet port (you can add up to 10 Gigabit Ethernet, if you so choose).

Adieu, home button—Apple’s new iPad Pros have nearly...

NEW YORK—The new iPad Pros that have been rumored for months are now a reality. Apple revealed the latest editions of its premium tablets today at its "special event" in Brooklyn, New York. The announcement confirms some major new features that have been brought over from the most recent iPhones, like an edge-to-edge display and Face ID, plus tablet-specific features that have been talked about in the months leading up to the event.

The renders previously floating around the Internet accurately detailed the new iPad Pro design. The new models, 10.5-inch and 12.9-inch in size, have slimmer bezels on all four sides of their displays. While the bezels aren't as invisible as those on the iPhone XS and XS Max, they're much thinner than we've seen on an iPad before. (Ars' Samuel Axon noted the new iPads are virtually the...

Apple Reveals New 11-Inch and 12.9-Inch iPad Pro...

Apple today revealed the all-new iPad Pro, with an edge-to-edge LCD "Liquid Retina" display, slimmer bezels, no Home Button, Face ID, and a magnetic attachment support for the new Apple Pencil. The new 11-inch iPad Pro has the same footprint as the previous 10.5-inch iPad Pro, but now with a bigger display thanks to the slimmer bezels. The 12.9-inch version is actually smaller than the previous 12.9-inch model but with the same screen size.

Apple put the same Liquid Retina display in the iPad Pro as the one found in the iPhone XR, using rounded corners that follow the curves of the iPad Pro's unibody enclosure. Apple says the display is its brightest and most color accurate...

Apple Announces New MacBook Air With Retina Display...

At an event on Tuesday, Apple announced an update to one of its most popular laptops, the MacBook Air. The 13.3-inch laptop now has a 13.3-inch Retina display with four times the resolution with thin bezels, but moves to two USB-C ports only. Other features of it include: T2 chip for TouchID, three-mic array for better voice recognition, new butterfly keyboard (the same module the company used in this year's MacBook Pro lineup -- which as you might remember are not reliable), eGPU and 5K display support, 8th-gen Intel Core i5, up to 16GB 2333MHz memory, up to 1.5TB SSD, 2.75 pounds. It is made of 100 percent recycled aluminum. It starts at $1,199 and ships starting November 7.

Apple Announces New MacBook Air With 13-Inch Retina...

Apple in New York today announced a new Retina Display-equipped MacBook Air, the first major update to the model in several years. The display is the centerpiece of the update, but it also gains a pair of Thunderbolt 3 ports and retains its headphone jack, mirroring other 13-inch notebooks in Apple's lineup. It's available in gold, silver, and space gray.

Pricing starts at $1,199, with preorders beginning today and first deliveries on November 7.

The new Air features 50 percent smaller bezels, allowing for a reduced footprint while retaining the same screen size. The 13.3-inch display has four times the resolution of the previous model at 2560x1600. The screen supports 48 percent more color than before, and the FaceTime HD camera remains tucked away at the top.

It has an 8th-gen Intel Core i5, with Intel UHD Graphics and 2133 MHz system memory up to 16GB (8GB standard), with faster SSDs up to 1.5TB...

Apple announced a brand new Mac mini with a space gray finish at its "There's more in the making" media event held in Brooklyn, New York today.

The new space gray Mac mini comes with quad- and 6-core 8th-generation Intel Core processors with Turbo Boost Speeds up to 4.6GHz, making it 5 times faster than the previous generation, and up to 64GB of 2,666MHz RAM.

Storage wise, all Mac minis now have all-flash storage up to 2 TB that's 4 times faster than previous storage drives, while also coming with Intel UHD graphics, Apple's new T2 security chip, a Gigabit Ethernet, 4x Thunderbolt ports, HDMI, a headphone jack, and two USB-A ports, along with a 10Gb Ethernet option.

The new Mac mini can connect to high speed storage as well as 4K and 5K Thunderbolt displays, and can output video in three formats. There's also a brand new quiet thermal system with double the airflow installed.

SpamSieve 2.9.34 - Robust spam filter for major...

SpamSieve is a robust spam filter for major email clients that uses powerful Bayesian spam filtering.

SpamSieve understands what your spam looks like in order to block it all, but also learns what your legitimate messages look like to avoid confusion. SpamSieve only marks spam in your email client so you never lose any mail.



Version 2.9.34:

  • Made a variety of changes to work better with Apple Mail on macOS 10.14:
    • SpamSieve now uses a variety of heuristics to better detect when Mail finished launching before checking that its plug-in is enabled. This helps avoid annoying dialogs and prevents unnecessary rule deactivations if Mail takes a really long time to launch, e.g. on a slower Mac that has rebooted and is restoring all the previously open applications at once or if a utility such as iLock has halted Mail during the launch process.

Apple finally announces an overhauled Mac mini

NEW YORK—For the first time in four years, Apple has announced a new Mac mini, and it's a departure from its predecessor. The new Space Grey boasts five times the performance of its predecessor, with either 4- or 6-core processors and up to 64GB of RAM, making it a much more capable system for demanding users.

The 2014 refresh of the Mac mini was not well-received by users or critics. It eliminated the four-core CPU available in the previous model and was harder to upgrade. And Apple let that refresh sit for a long time without an update. Consumers and analysts began to speculate that the product line's days were numbered, but Apple CEO Tim Cook responded to an email from a customer to say, "We do plan for Mac mini to be an important part of our product line going forward" about a year ago. We...

Apple updates MacBook Air with Retina display, Touch...

(credit: Apple)

NEW YORK—The wait is over: Apple on Tuesday unveiled a revamped MacBook Air at an event in Brooklyn, New York.

The device is available for pre-order today and will begin shipping on November 7. It will start at $1,199, which is a slight jump from the $999 starting price of the older MacBook Air.

The updated notebook is still called the MacBook Air and still features a 13.3-inch display, but the borders surrounding that screen are dramatically smaller—"50% narrower," according to Apple—and the aluminum bezels that adorned the last MacBook Air are gone. Apple says the display now contains "over 4 million pixels" and "48% more color" compared to the prior model. That "Retina" display should be a massive leap from the 1440x900 display of the past MacBook Air, which was simply outdated for a $1,000 laptop in 2018. There's an "HD" front-facing camera above the display.

The iPhone XR, famously, does not have a telephoto lens. David Smith worked out a way to see how often he’s used the telephoto in the past, with his iPhone X:

I’m trying out the XR, but was curious how much I’ll actually miss the telephoto lens.

I realized I can check using a smart album in Photos on the Mac. For me the telephoto was used in only 16% of my iPhone X photos. pic.twitter.com/N3YRjp4cFL

In a nutshell, he jumped into Mac Photos and created a smart album based purely on focal length, which eliminated all but images taken with the telephoto lens. Very smart.

iPhone XR: A deep dive into depth

This is a fantastic look at how smartphone cameras capture and handle depth in photos. This is a fascinating read all the way around.

It’s from the Halide blog, and does get into how the Halide camera app expands on the iPhone XR’s “humans only” portrait mode. But there’s lots of interesting tidbits here.

One in particular stood out for me:

It seems the iPhone XR has two advantages over the iPhone XS: it can capture wider angle depth photos, and because the wide-angle lens collects more light, the photos will come out better in low light and have less noise.

Remember how we said the XR’s Portrait mode is only available on human portraits? When it comes to faces, you never want to photograph a person up close with a wide angle lens, as it distorts the face in an unflattering way.

That means you really have to take portraits on the iPhone XR from medium shot (waist-up). If you want a close-up headshot, kind of like the iPhone XS, you’ll have to crop...

Your Mac’s Photos Library is important. Make a...

Making backups of your Mac’s Photos Library are among the more popular questions to Mac 911. It’s not enough for many people to have one backup made by Time Machine; a lot of you also want a manually-created backup that’s more accessible in case something goes wrong. The catch to manually backing up a Photos Library is to use a method that isn’t tedious.

The answer may lie with sync software. Sync software lets you keep files and folders in two locations (or more) up to date with each other. Sync software has been around since the earliest days of the Mac, and I’ve used many sync apps.

My current favorite sync app is ChronoSync. It’s kind of a kitchen-sink program: it can do any kind of thing you could plausibly want to do to keep things synchronized, cloned, backed up, archived, whatever. It requires a little study to master, but it’s worth it. It’s $50 but it has a perpetual...

Apple patent is for better brake lighting and...

Apple has been granted a patent (number 10,112,528) for an “exterior lighting and warning system” for an automobile.

In the patent details, Apple notes that when a driver brakes to slow a vehicle, the brake lights are activated. The brake lights are mounted on the rear of the vehicle, so the driver a following vehicle can be informed about the braking status of the vehicle. Some vehicles have brake lights that flash under hard braking to warn following vehicles. 

Apple says that, although existing systems for informing following vehicles of braking status can be satisfactory in normal driving conditions, it would be “desirable” to provide additional brake status information and additional warnings in many situations. The company’s invention is for better brake lighting and warning systems. 

As the Sellers Research Group (that’s me) has long said, I don't think that Apple will actually build its own automobiles, but will work with other manufactures to implement...

Rumor: Apple Pencil 2 could feature built-in gesture...

Apple’s next-gen Pencil could receive gesture support.

According to well-known developer and leak king Steve Troughton-Smith, the Apple Pencil 2 could feature some form of built-in gesture support.

The updated accessory is expected during today’s “There’s More in the Making” media event in Brooklyn on October 30th.

Troughton-Smith added the button, which may be included on the Apple Pencil 2, could also serve as a contextual click. He called it “the iPad’s right-click.”

Apple’s media event starts at 10 AM eastern time on Tuesday, October 30th, at Brooklyn’s Howard Gilman Opera House. Along with the Apple Pencil 2, Apple is expected to introduce new iPad Pro models, and possibly new Mac models.

Stay tuned for additional details as they become available.

How to use the Measure app in iOS 12

The new Measure app in iOS 12 lets you use augmented reality (AR) technology to turn your iOS device into a tape measure. You can quickly gauge the size of objects, automatically detect the dimensions of rectangular objects, and save a photo of the measurement for later.

To take a single measurement:

Open the Measure app, then follow the onscreen instructions that ask you to move your iPhone or iPad around. This gives your device a frame of reference for the object you're measuring and the surface it's on. Keep moving your device until a circle with a dot in the center appears. 

Move your device so that the dot is over the starting point of your measurement, then tap the plus icon.

Slowly move your device until the dot is over the ending point of your measurement, then tap the plus icon again.

After you take a measurement, you can adjust its starting and ending points. Touch and hold one of the points, then drag it where you want it to go. The...

Qualcomm Says Apple Is $7 Billion Behind In Royalty...

Last Friday in federal court, Qualcomm lawyer Evan Chesler said Apple is $7 billion dollars behind in royalties. "They're trying to destroy our business," he said. "The house is on fire and there is $7 billion of property damage right now." Bloomberg reports: Qualcomm wants as many as 56 patent-related claims and counterclaims cut from a lawsuit with Apple and its Asian manufacturers, arguing that these are just a sideshow to the broader licensing dispute between the companies. Apple, through its manufacturers, halted royalty payments to Qualcomm last year and the tech giants' showdown has escalated into some 100 legal proceedings around the world. Apple argues that Qualcomm is using its intellectual property to bully customers into paying excessive royalties even as it tries to duck scrutiny over whether its patents are valid. "You can't just let Qualcomm walk away from this," Apple's lawyer, Ruffin Cordell, told the judge at Friday's hearing.

Some thoughts on today’s Apple event

Yesterday Apple announced new iPad Pros, a new Apple Pencil, a new MacBook Air, and a new Mac mini. I was pleased with the announcements, but shocked at what wasn’t announced. Here are my thoughts:

Since the new MacBook Air and the Mac mini are the “greenest Macs ever” (Apple’s words), they should be offered in green colors!

For those who think the Mac is on its last legs, think again. Apple says there are over 100 million Mac users right now.

However, I was really hoping for a new Apple display. We have new MacBook Pros, a new MacBook Air, and a new Mac mini. C’mon, Apple, we need a new display to go with them.

CEO Tim Cook noted that over 400 million iPads have been sold. He says Apple sold more tablets last year than all the major laptop players combined, making it the “most popular computer on the planet.” Computer? Hey, Tim, what’s a computer?

I still want mouse support for the iPad Pro. If I liked the iOS version of Squarespace better (the...
