    I say the Mighty Speaker “may” be sharkproof because the developer doesn’t actually make that claim. They have no reason to. But I’m watching something on SyFy about the greatest shark attacks in cinema, so I’ve got that on my mind. Hopefully, your speaker needs are more of the waterproof and sandproof, which the Mighty Speaker can provide. The Mighty Speaker is a portable Bluetooth speaker that’s waterproof at up to 1 meter for 30 minutes. You likely won’t need that, but it also means it’s going to be… Continue reading Indiegogo find: The Mighty Speaker may be…

  • Why you should care about CloudKit

    Macworld
    28 Jul 2014 | 4:00 am
    If you’ve lived through the last couple iterations of OS X and iOS, you’ve probably had the opportunity to develop a special love/hate relationship with iCloud. Apple’s cloud service suite is made up of many different parts and systems, and while it’s great when it works, it also has a history of being prone to hard-to-diagnose outages and, for developers, obscure error messages. Apple has worked hard over the last couple years to make iCloud more stable and reliable, and it has largely succeeded, to the point where the grumblings about it have, at least anecdotally, subsided…

LiveCode’s developer, RunRev, raised nearly $840,000 via Kickstarter in February 2013 to make an open source edition of LiveCode, and now the company is turning to the crowdfunding approach again. This time the goal is to enable LiveCode developers to write apps that can be deployed as HTML5 Web apps and run in a browser.

Titled "Happy Anniversary", the commercial shows Cortana and Windows Phone 8.1 running on the Nokia Lumia 635 as the narrator makes commands related around a wedding anniversary. First, the narrator asks Cortana to remind him to wish his wife a happy birthday he next time she calls, as the voice assistant schedules a reminder around the call. Meanwhile, Siri does not comply…

    Apple is close to acquiring talk radio curation service Swell for about $30 million, reports Re/code. Swell's iOS app launched last year and allows users to listen to streaming audio from iTunes, NPR, ABC, ESPN and others through a design that emphasizes simplicity. As a part of the acquisition, Swell will shut down its iOS app this week as its CEO Ram Ramkumar and other members of its development team will join Apple. Apple will likely look to use Swell's technology to improve its own Podcasts app, which holds a 1.5 star rating and has been widely criticized for performance issues. Users…

    Apple may be planning to launch a slightly refreshed line of 15-inch Retina MacBook Pros complete with faster Haswell processors and 16GB of RAM standard, according to a photo said to have come from the company's Chongqing, China store (via BBS Feng, Google Translate). The purported pricing chart shows two standard configurations priced at 14,288 yuan and 18,688 yuan, which is the same as Apple's current pricing for its 15-inch notebook line in China. If real, this pricing chart would indicate that Apple would keep its current pricing instead of offering each new model for less as done for…

  • Staff Picks: Revolution 60 is the most ambitious iOS game you'll play this year

    As I’ve mentioned previously in this column, it takes a very specific kind of iOS game to grab my interest. I’m not a huge fan of first person shooters or clunky free-to-play titles; multi-touch puzzle games and the occasional 2D RPG are my bread and butter. It was luck and a random connection that led me to try Giant Spacekat’s Revolution 60, a 3D hybrid that’s part RPG, part chess game, and—surprisingly—part compelling animation film. And I am so very glad I did. I had the privilege of being on a podcast with Giant Spacekat co-founder Brianna Wu a few months ago, and it was…

    OS X’s built-in Time Machine feature makes backing up your important data a relatively painless process: You just connect a drive to your Mac, tell the OS to use that drive for Time Machine, and then, to quote a famous Apple ad, “There is no Step 3.” As long as Time Machine doesn’t run into any problems, it works great. But when Time Machine does experience a glitch, it’s not always clear what went wrong. The Time Machine pane of System Preferences provides a red Info (i) button that can sometimes fill you in on the details, but not always, and if Time Machine should face multiple…

  • Bose accuses Beats of using patented noise-cancelling tech

    Tiffany Kelly
    26 Jul 2014 | 3:05 pm
    Bose Corp. filed a lawsuit on Friday that accuses popular headphone maker Beats Electronics of infringing upon several of its patents. The suit claims that Bose lost sales because Beats—which Apple announced it would acquire for $3 billion in May—used patented noise-cancelling technology in its Studio and Studio Wireless headphone lines. Beats’ products that allegedly use the technology “can also be used for noise cancellation when no music is played, a feature that Beats also advertises,” the suit states. “Thus, Beats specifically encourages users to use the infringing…

    In our preview of the OS X Yosemite beta today, we focused mostly on the OS-wide changes to the user interface and the new features of a few built-in apps. As happened in the transition from iOS 6 to iOS 7, though, there are plenty of other applications in Yosemite that still work like they did in Mavericks, just with a fresh coat of paint. We've collected a few different representative examples in the photo gallery below—some of these designs completely rethink the way the original application looked (Game Center). Some of them look basically the same but compress the UI or move buttons to…

    What time is it? According to the US Patent and Trademark Office, it's iTime! As the smartwatch market has grown with entries from Qualcomm, Samsung, and Google, Apple has remained remarkably mum on the concept, in spite of long-standing rumors hinting at a wristwatch in the works in Cupertino. On Sunday, iWatch's hopes grew further with the unveiling and approval of a new smartwatch patent filed by Apple in July, 2011. As reported by Wired UK, the US patent describes a "wrist-worn electronic device and methods therefor," and its description certainly resembles the features users have come to…

  • Griffin Wired Keyboard for iOS Devices review

    Charles Moore

    I find whole concept of using external keyboards with iOS devices enigmatic. In my estimation, the essential point of using an iPad instead of a MacBook is its low-hassle, self-contained portability, and adding a physical keyboard collides with that. An external keyboard also accentuates the iPad’s lack of external pointing device support, making it necessary to reach over the ‘board to paw at the touchscreen using horribly unergonomic body English. If I had my druthers, I’d pick mouse support over an external keyboard without hesitation. However, I acknowledge that many folks disagree…

It also appears the company will no longer report the number of store visitors–the figure was missing from the financial filing for the second quarter in a row. Significantly, Apple said it will open just 20 new stores during fiscal 2014, the lowest number since 2002, the second year of the chain. Two-thirds of those stores will be outside the United States.

  • Rendering Sparks Speculation on Future Apple Store

    Gary Allen
    18 Jul 2014 | 3:35 am
    A huge new shopping mall is under construction in a suburb of Lucerne (Switzerland), and if renderings of the future mall are correct, it will host an Apple retail store. The Mall of Switzerland will span 785,000 square-feet in the small town of Ebikon when it opens in 2017, including 120 shops, a cinema, hotel, apartments and public areas. Earlier this year several renderings were posted on-line, and one showed a hallway lined with retail stores. One of those stores was outfitted with typical Apple wood product display tables, back-lit wall graphics and stainless steel structural columns.
  • 3rd Apple Store Spotted for Western Australia

    Nearly two years after Apple’s real estate scouts were spotted walking the hallways of the Lakeside Joondalup (Australia) shopping mall, sources say Apple has finally signed a lease there and has started to recruit new employees. The store would be the third along the western coast of the country, an outpost of Apple stores about 1,300 miles away from the next-nearest stores. The timing of the new store is understanable—the mall is undergoing a renovation and expansion that will make it the largest shopping center in Western Australia. The work will free up existing spaces and…

  • Yosemite: Will all your apps run in Apple’s latest OS?

    E. Werner Reschke
    25 Jul 2014 | 9:19 am
    When Apple showed off OS X Yosemite (aka 10.10), the Moscone crowd’s excitement grew at the turn of each new slide. OS X Yosemite promises to polish off some rough edges that Mavericks attempted — away from skeuomorphic design and to a more simple, elegant (aka flat) user experience. In addition Yosemite will deliver a host of new features and connectivity with iOS devices. After the excitement for OS X Yosemite wanes, then reality sets in. The main question on all upgrader’s minds is “Will all my apps work in the new OS?” The assumption…
  • Where Is The Incredible 4K Apple TV?

    Years have gone by and even Gene "no lines" Munster of Piper Jaffray seems to have given up reporting that an integrated Apple HDTV of some sort is just around the corner. When Gene gives up on the idea, it must be a dead product, right? Will the mythical Unicorn Apple HDTV ever arrive? During the past year, attention has shifted away from an Apple TV and towards the idea of Apple launching a watch-like device, and more recently, chatter has surrounded the forthcoming iPhone. But Apple has become a master of "look at the shiny object in this hand while you…

    Rumors continue to mount that Apple’s Sapphire glass production continues to plot along at a pace which cannot meet a heavy launch demand come September. Many are pointing towards 5.5" Sapphire production issues, which would make sense due to the overall display size, let alone the production volumes which Apple’s heavily funded supplier, GT Advanced Technologies, must produce at an ever increasing pace. The Sapphire glass is being manufactured in a new production facility in Arizona. If it is unable to achieve output numbers sufficient…
  • Photos For The Mac And Pixelmator

    Karl Johnson

    Apple is creating a new photography app for the Mac called Photos. This application is based on Photos for the iOS, but it looks like it is so much more. Apple demonstrated this when they showed many cool features for Photos on the iOS. One of the cool features is third-party extensibility. Third-party extensibility should allow others to add features to Photos for either the Mac or iOS. How this will work is still unknown. If Apple creates a system that allows for deep integration, it will be a huge advantage for Apple and third party developers. One of those will be Pixelmator. Pixelmator…
  • Until iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite, iStick is the Airdrop Solution

    Mark Reschke
    20 Jul 2014 | 11:41 pm
    If you haven't used Airdrop before, you don't know what a great wireless technology you've got on your Mac or iOS device. Having lost my Age of Empires disc, I simply used Airdrop to copy it to another Mac, drug it into the Applications folder, and the game launched without a hitch. Sending a few photos to other iOS devices on a local network has also become chore-less. But try Airdrop between OS X and iOS and it's DOA. Airdrop does not work between OS X and iOS devices, not until this fall anyway, but until then a little invention called…

    The U.S. Secret Service has arrested a Florida man for federal wire fraud related to $309,000 in credit card transactions at Apple retail store that exploited a procedural vulnerability and the willingness of employees to complete a sale.

  • Q3 Financials Completely Ignored The Retail Stores

    Gary Allen
    23 Jul 2014 | 5:22 pm
    For the first time in recent history, Apple’s announcement of its quarterly financial results did not include details about the retail stores, and a one-hour conference call made absolutely no mention of the chain at all. It also appears the company will no longer report the number of store visitors–the figure was missing from the financial filing for the second quarter in a row. Significantly, Apple said it will open just 20 new stores during fiscal 2014, the lowest number since 2002, the second year of the chain. Two-thirds of those stores will be outside the United States.

  • Rendering Sparks Speculation on Future Apple Store

    Gary Allen
    18 Jul 2014 | 3:35 am
    A huge new shopping mall is under construction in a suburb of Lucerne (Switzerland), and if renderings of the future mall are correct, it will host an Apple retail store. The Mall of Switzerland will span 785,000 square-feet in the small town of Ebikon when it opens in 2017, including 120 shops, a cinema, hotel, apartments and public areas. Earlier this year several renderings were posted on-line, and one showed a hallway lined with retail stores. One of those stores was outfitted with typical Apple wood product display tables, back-lit wall graphics and stainless steel structural columns.

    Nearly two years after Apple’s real estate scouts were spotted walking the hallways of the Lakeside Joondalup (Australia) shopping mall, sources say Apple has finally signed a lease there and has started to recruit new employees. The store would be the third along the western coast of the country, an outpost of Apple stores about 1,300 miles away from the next-nearest stores. The timing of the new store is understanable—the mall is undergoing a renovation and expansion that will make it the largest shopping center in Western Australia.

According to the source who shared the images with Nowhereelse.fr, the logic board will include support for both near field communication (NFC) and a faster 802.11ac Wi-Fi. Support for NFC in the iPhone has been in news for quite some time, though there is yet no confirmation from Apple on the same. Also, it is not possible to infer about the NFC support…

    One of the more popular aspects of Android software is modifications to the system, commonly known as ‘modding.’ Android Modding consists of two basic parts, a ROM and Kernel. The simplest analogy is that of a car; the ROM is the car body and chassis, and the engine is the Kernel. One of the most popular custom ROMs for Android devices is Paranoid Android which has now found its way onto even more devices. Traditionally, and until now, Paranoid Android officially supported only Nexus phones and tablets, but for the first time they have extended their reach to the following…

  • Two-step authentication: the basics

    Sarah Heartland
    13 Jul 2014 | 6:33 am
    Though there are plenty of third party password managers to help you generate random passwords or keep your passwords safe, the newer (and growing) best defence against password hackers is two-step authentications (also called two-factor authentication). With this, you still use your username and password to log in, but you also need that second step: often an SMS message of numbers that gets sent to your phone. Many of the more popular programs and companies, such as Google, Twitter, Facebook, and Dropbox, all offer this option. Apple ID and iCloud do, too. It does require that extra step,…

    If you’re looking to buy a smartphone, there are really only two choices – iPhone and Android. Of course, there are also Windows and Blackberry phones, but these are really minor players compared to the two big ones. People are passionate in the iPhone versus Android debate – each phone has a strong following that is vocal about why the phone they support is better. However, there are some indisputable differences between the two phones, and it is important to be aware of these when making a choice.

    Surfing the web can leave you open for security issues, and though Macs are good at keeping you secure, nothing is foolproof.

  • Production hitch at Apple might delay launch of 5.5-inch iPhone 6 until 2015

    According to a new report published by KGI Securities analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo, the launch of 5.5-inch iPhone 6 may defer to 2015 due to production hitch at Apple. The smaller 4.7 inch version will set afloat over the larger 5.5-inch model before the year ends. Production bottlenecks on 4.7-inch iPhone 6 center on the yield rate of in-cell touch panel and metal casing. As in-cell touch panel becomes larger in size, the edge of the panel may become insensitive to touch. Meanwhile, under new manufacturing process for the iPhone 6 metal casing, color unevenness is an issue. The report highlights…

The report, The State of the Developer Nation Q3 2014, says that more than two thirds of mobile app developers focus on consumers, 16 percent target the enterprise and 11 percent target professionals. The developers of enterprise apps have twice the odds of earning more than $5,000 per app, per month, and three times the…

    As a company, Apple has a well-earned reputation for CIA-caliber secrecy. New products are developed under tight security, employees always refuse to comment on new projects and good luck trying to get a quote out of an executive if you’re a member of the press. With that in mind, the company’s latest move is a bit of a shocker: the debut of an official blog devoted to Swift, meant to provide “a behind-the-scenes look into the design of the Swift language by the engineers who created it.” The postings will also provide news and tips for developers working with the language.

The focus is no longer on speedy user growth; instead, it’s about encouraging third-party developers to build software for Facebook across multiple platforms, but especially mobile.

It is clear that every Apple’s iOS app is going through somewhat slow progress, which sparked discussions about leaving open space for iOS App Store to grow and offer third party alternatives.

Starting next year, you’ll be able to bypass the front desk altogether in Hilton hotels, your iPhone serving as as your hotel room key. We’ve seen the same thing in smaller hotel groups, but Hilton’s adoption of the technology moves it very much into the mainstream. The group told the WSJ that it will begin introducing the new door locks next year, and expects to complete the global roll-out by the end of 2016.

    The European Commission has today approved Apple’s acquisition of Beats Electronics and Beats Music. The commission said that the buyout passes merger regulations. The commission concluded that Apple and Beats’ combined marketshare in both the streaming music and headphones markets is low, so an acquisition did not materially affect competition. In headphones, the EU says that Apple/Beats exists in a global market with numerous other brands, including Bose, Sennheiser and Sony. For streaming music, companies like Spotify and Deezer offered a similar safety buffer. As the EU…

December would be an extremely unlikely time for Apple to launch a new product. Many people will already have made holiday gift purchases by then, while others would have unleashed their gadget fund on Black Friday, which this year falls on 28th November. Apple has however released 27-inch iMacs and Mac Pro in December, likely due to production delays. Professional type machines like this are far less likely to be affected by…

    The new Withings Activité smart watch is beautiful, unlike many of the other entrants to the market. The first thing that stands out to me is how clearly different the approach to creating this product must have been. If you take Samsung, LG, or even Pebble (I'll talk about Motorola in a moment) it is pretty obvious they started with a list of features and built the watch around it. Withings has undoubtedly started with a simple and timeless watch design and added intelligence to it. These two approaches are worlds apart.How?The Activité gets 1 year of battery life. Pebble et al. gets 3-7…
  • Solving the Wrong Problem

    Throughout the switch from a Microsoft based solution (Outlook, SharePoint, Office, etc.) to a Google based solution, I witnessed a great deal of frustration, anxiety, and even anger. Why? A full generation of people have never used anything besides the Google solutions, and it works just fine for them. It is clear to me that there are two fundamental considerations - what is the problem, and how do we solve it? This applies broadly beyond technology, but I'll leave that part to the philosophers. Of those that struggled with the Microsoft to Google change, many had MSN, Hotmail, or…

    [Note: Sorry for the duplicate post, I really didn't like that first title.]News broke (subscription required) over the holiday weekend that Apple is rumored to announce a home automation solution and/or platform at WWDC this year. Of course, rumors like this are to be taken with a grain of salt, but John Gruber's reply of "I’m pretty excited for next week." is classic Gruber-speak (albeit not a sure thing) for "this is happening."So why does Apple have a shot at this working? How do they possibly expect to release a platform for the home when they're so notorious for closed…

    Last month, YouTube flatly stated they would block videos from independent record labels they could not reach a deal with. After an uproar in the music community, YouTube has not blocked any videos so far and is allowing more time for negotiations. Since this slight change in attitude, more than 800 Independent labels have formed a pact seeking fair treatment from music streaming services. Initiated by the Worldwide Independent Network (WIN) - the organization that represents the interests of the global independent music community – they issued a Fair Digital Deals Pledge that labels…

    Beats Music, along with a few other streaming services, has been feeding music into the Bop.fm interface since March of this year. As their tagline above implies, Bop ultimately wants to be the network that lets you play and share any song, any time from any music streaming service. It’s an ambitious (and elegant) goal. Bop is going in the right direction as today they announced raising $2 million from Charles River Ventures. Bop may be in a prime position to expand their business as music streaming services are launching seemingly every month – potentially adding confusion for…

  • On-Demand Music vs. Internet Radio explained

    The general public is still confused about how on-demand streaming music is different than Internet Radio. Beats Music and Spotify are on-demand streaming services. Pandora and iHeartRadio are Internet Radio services. On-demand streaming means you can immediately play the music (song or album) you search for. Internet Radio allows you to search for a song, artist or genre, but then will play a continuous stream of songs similar to your search criteria. Eventually it may even play the song you searched for. This is often referred to as a lean-back listening experience. On-demand streaming is…
