Amazon and WarnerMedia agree on HBO Now extension

Amazon and media giant WarnerMedia have come to an agreement that HBO Now subscribers can get extended views on their Fire TV.

Subscribers of HBO Now can continue watching content on Fire TV devices as WarnerMedia works in rebranding the streaming service. On Fire TV, the name will be changed from HBO Now to just ‘HBO’.

HBO Max will be replacing both HBO Now and HBO Go. Fire TV customers will lose the HBO Go app on July 31. For Apple TV, iPad and iPhone owners, the change is simpler- there’s a new HBO Max app that can be downloaded and will replace HBO Now. HBO Go users can log in with the same credentials in the HBO Max app.

In related news, Comcast reports a Q2 earning and how they gained 10 million subscribers for its Peacock streaming service. The service began...

Emails show Phil Schiller and Steve Jobs blocking...

A slew of internal emails were revealed today, showing how Apple execs battled with Amazon over allowing in-app ebook purchases in the Kindle app.

Back in 2011 users can purchase ebooks on Kindle via the app, but it has been changed so the app could not buy ebooks directly on the iPhone or iPad. It’s said that Amazon made it this way so they could avoid giving Apple 30% in ebook purchases.

Schiller emailed Jobs and other Apple execs and presented the idea that they could drop the feature as an Amazon video ad showed how iOS users could make the switch to Android and still get access to all their ebooks. Jobs’ response was to force Amazon to use their payment system or ‘bow out’. Furthermore, he reiterated that iBooks should be the only iOS bookstore in Apple devices.

These emails were sent in the time when Apple was about to announce...

An Amazon Ad Prompted Steve Jobs and Phil Schiller...

According to a collection of internal emails recently released by lawmakers, as part of the House Judiciary Committee's antirust probe into Apple, a series of Amazon advertisements prompted Steve Jobs and Phil Schiller to block in-app purchases of Kindle books on iOS. 9to5Mac reports: As it stands today, the Kindle app for iPhone and iPad does not allow users to purchase ebooks directly. Users can read the ebooks they've already purchased, but to buy new ones, they have to use Safari. This is Amazon's way of avoiding giving Apple a 30% cut of ebook purchases, which would be required if Amazon sold ebooks directly within the Kindle app itself. What's important to remember is that this sort of arrangement wasn't always the case. Up until early 2011, you could buy Kindle ebooks directly in the Kindle app on iOS. As first uncovered by the Verge, two sets of emails included in the internal documents include conversations between Steve Jobs, Phil Schiller, and other Apple executives...

Just as has been predicted, Apple has found that it’s “… much cheaper to make its own A-series Apple Silicon chips than to buy” from Intel.

Superb Apps You Won’t Find in the Mac App Store

Episode #394

I have no issue with the Mac App Store in general. It’s convenient, easy, and useful. But many Mac developers don’t offer their wares in the Mac App Store for a variety of reasons. Some developers object to Apple taking a cut of every sale and subscription. Some apps don’t meet the Mac App Store guidelines (of which there are many).

If you only buy apps from the Mac App Store, you’ll miss out on many of the most useful, reasonably priced, and effort-saving Mac apps available today. So, this week I’d like to introduce you to two of my favorite non-App Store apps: SoundSource 4 and A Better Finder Rename.

“Apple defied expectations in Q2,” said Canalys analyst Vincent Thielke. “Its new iPhone SE was critical in the quarter, accounting for around 28% of its global volume, while iPhone 11 remained a strong best-seller at nearly 40%. iPhone SE will remain crucial to prop up volume this year, amid delays to Apple’s next flagship release. In China, it had blockbuster results, growing 35% to reach 7.7 million units. It is unusual for Apple’s Q2 shipments to increase sequentially. As well as the new iPhone SE, Apple is also demonstrating skills in new user acquisition. It adapted quickly to the pandemic, doubling down on the digital customer experience as stay-at-home measures drive more customers to online channels.” What...

Apple’s new 'everything' gift cards could...

Apple today announced a major change to its gift card offerings. Instead of separate cards for iTunes and Apple Store purchase, Apple is now selling a single car for “everything Apple” that can be used online and in stores to purchase “products, accessories, apps, games, music, movies, TV shows, iCloud, and more.”

While the new cards will make it easier to buy things, they could also mean the end of the standard iTunes gift card deals that regularly pop up. Best Buy, PayPal, and others often offer 15- or 20-percent off $50 or $100 cards, but those deals rarely surface for Apple Store cards. It’s unclear when or if these new cards will make their way to retailers.

First up, let me just say that this review of the Greenworks Pro 21 has nothing to do with Apple products or services — or any related third party products or services. However, with many folks working from home due to the COVID-19 pandemic and with growing concern about protecting our environment, it seems timely.

The Greenworks Pro 21 — which I bought at Lowe’s for US$400 (yep, spent my own dough; no gratis review model involved) — is a battery-powered push (as opposed to riding) lawn mower. I’ve been considering such a device for years, but always found them to be underpowered or skimpy on battery life. That’s been changing in recent years, and I’ve found the Greenworks Pro to be a powerful lawn mower with decent, if not great, battery life

The Apple Watch Series 6 — which should arrive in September or October — will add blood oxygen monitoring to its features, according to a new report from DigiTimes.

If true — and the Sellers Research Group thinks it is — it will be  an important new health feature because if a person’s blood oxygen mix falls below 90-100%, it can cause serious problems including compromising heart and brain functions.

The Apple Watch Series 6 is also expected to add sleep tracking features. It’s also expected to come with faster performance and better water resistance. However, no revamp of the smartwatch’s design is anticipated.
