Tim Cook says terrorism should not scare people into...


In the second half of The Telegraph’s interview with Tim Cook, Apple CEO Tim Cook has reaffirmed his position on privacy. Cook says that whilst currently consumers do not understand the ramifications of sharing their data with third-parties, “one day they will”.
Moreover, Cook openly objects to governments that say data sharing is required to combat crime and terrorism. There has been pressure for tech companies to offer back-doors into encryption mechanisms, but a clear implication of this interview is that Apple will strongly oppose this view. Cook describes privacy as a ‘basic human right’.

Designing for the Grand Budapest Hotel

The Grand Budapest Hotel won the Academy Award for Best Production Design (an award that combines the categories of art direction and set decoration). In my opinion, no other movie even came close.To get a sense of the elements involved, take a read through this interview with the film’s lead graphic designer Annie Atkins, who was responsible for every graphic prop in the movie.∞ Read this on The Loop

Gadget Ogling: Scooting Around, Scratching Wood,...


Even for someone endlessly in awe of our ability to traverse continents in just a few hours, traveling is increasingly a chore. Anything I can add to trips to make them even a touch more enjoyable is nothing to sniff at. Coolpeds' briefcase e-scooter -- a suitcase with a built-in, motorized scooter -- may be just what I need to freshen up journeys. It's just as well there's a built-in transport system on this, given the suitcase alone weighs a whopping 17.4 pounds. It might be carry-on size, but it's far beyond typical carry-on luggage weight.

Accessory maker LunaTik today teased a new protective product for the upcoming Apple Watch. Not many features of the Epik Apple Watch Kit have been revealed, but the case is said to provide a level of water resistance that should allow you to use it while swimming, showering, or engaging in many other water-related activities.
Of course, Tim Cook recently said that the Apple Watch will be showerproof, which means the device may already have a similar level of water resistance. All will be revealed when all of the watch’s details are revealed on March 9th. The Apple Watch will...

Pitchers and catchers are already warming up in anticipation of the start of Major League Baseball Spring Training on Tuesday, March 3 2015, which means it's time for another spring tradition -- the update of the MLB At Bat app.

  • New UI for all 30 team pages & the league-wide scoreboard (iPhone only)

Rumor: iOS 8.2 could arrive next week with iOS 8.3...



iOS could be out the door as early as next week with iOS 8.3 not far behind it.
The rumor mill has it that iOS 8.2 could become available as soon as Monday. However, the report did qualify that “last minute problems” could delay the release until the following week.
A total of five betas of iOS 8.2 have been provided to developers, though the most recent one was a month ago.

Unsurprisingly, not far behind iOS 8.2 will be iOS 8.3, as Apple has already provided developers with two betas of that release even before 8.2 becomes public. Sources reportedly said that Apple plans to have “as many as four” beta versions of iOS 8.3 before it is released to the masses.

The Apple Watch Mystery Won't Be Solved March 9


The fog shrouding the Apple Watch won't be lifted on March 9 when Apple is widely expected to tell us more about its forthcoming release. Apple's invite to its media event is characteristically coy, with its vague "Spring Forward," tease, which likely refers to the shift in daylight savings time -- and time itself. The Apple Watch event likely will fill in some knowledge gaps around functionality, as well as pricing, but the mystery is whether most of us new buyers suddenly will turn into watch wearers for longer than a few months.

Review: Sengled’s Pulse system combines LED lights...


Sengled’s Pulse LED light system is definitely a product I never thought would be a thing. The Pulse series is a system of LED lights with built-in speakers. Yes, you read that correctly. It’s something I never thought would need to exist. That being said, because it was so unique I figured it would be worth checking out and to my surprise, it’s actually pretty cool…

The Pulse system comes as a starter kit which includes a master bulb and a satellite bulb. This alone will allow you to have a stereo speaker system, but you can connect up to seven satellite bulbs (purchased separately) to one master bulb. The bulbs will fit most anywhere with...

Among many others, one of the headlining features in this version is that VLC now automatically detects vertical videos and rotates them accordingly on some platforms. The new version includes other new features like the ability to resume video playback from where it left off on the desktop, much improved support for UltraHD video codecs, new hardware acceleration on some platforms...

He was 83. His wife, Susan Bay Nimoy, confirmed his death, saying the cause was end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.He was a wonderful actor in many roles but will obviously always be known for the iconic Spock.

Tim Cook reveals Apple Watch may replace key fobs,...

Ahead of the expected Apple Watch announcement next month, Apple CEO Tim Cook talked to the Telegraph's Allister Heath about the Watch and how it will change people's lives once it is launched. 

"This will be just like the iPhone: people wanted it and bought for a particular reason, perhaps for browsing, but then found out that they loved it for all sorts of other reasons."

Cook expects the Watch to kick off an explosion of innovation as developers and other companies develop novel ways of using the wrist-worn device. 

There will be lots of other potentially revolutionary uses. The watch is designed to be able to replace car keys and the clumsy, large fobs that are now used by many vehicles, Cook told The Telegraph. 

Besides car integration, the Watch also will reward exercise via a credit system and filter messages, bringing...

For instance, the smartwatch was designed to be able to replace your car keys—though it’s unlikely that functionality will be turned on at launch.
Apple CEO Tim Cook told The Telegraph that when it ships, Apple Watch will let you filter messages, give you credits for meeting exercise goals, and accompany you in the shower. Cook also said the battery life will last all day and will take less time to charge than the iPhone using the new MagSafe-style wireless inductive charger. It’s unclear exactly how long the battery...

What a difference a name change makes.
Well, that and taking something out of its beta cycle.
Apple removed the “beta” tag to its online suite of iWork apps on Thursday. The move means that anyone with an iCloud account can use Pages, Numbers, and Keynote on their browser.

The service entered beta in 2014, and required iCloud users to sign up for it. On Thursday, however, all visitors to iCloud.com were greeted with the message that, “Now anyone can use Pages, Numbers, and Keynote for iCloud.”
iCloud is a free service from Apple, and that includes the iWork for iCloud suite.

It never hurts to have decent market share in the enterprise space.
And that’s what Apple appears to be doing.
iOS gained another 4 percentage points, growing to 73 percent of global device activations in Q4 2014. Android device activations, meanwhile, dropped the same amount to 25 percent of total activations last quarter.
The latest findings come from Good Technology‘s Mobility Index Report. Windows Phone activations remain consistent with the seven previous quarters: flat at 1 percent. Since BlackBerry devices use BlackBerry Enterprise Server for corporate email access, Good Technology does not have insight into BlackBerry handset activations.

A first look at Avatron Software's Air Display...

Avatron Software's Air Display iOS app has been around since 2010, providing a way for Mac and PC users to use an iPhone or iPad as a second screen over a Wi-Fi connection. That method of connection was fine... although there was a bit of lag due to network latency and the connection sometimes outright failed. In January of 2015, a competitor -- Duet Display (US$7.99) --  hit the scene, and immediately captured the minds and wallets of a lot of users simply because it used a fast Lightning connection rather than Wi-Fi, allowing instantaneous updates with no lag. Avatron has wasted no time bringing Air Display up to snuff with Air Display 3.0 (US$14.99), which also bakes in features formerly found in the company's Air Stylus app.

Apple launched a web-only version of iWork that allows anyone to use Pages, Numbers and Keynote as long as they have an Apple ID. This access is free and does not require the user to have an Apple device.

“Web-only access is a free level of iCloud service that’s available to anyone, including people who don’t own or use Apple devices. It includes access to Pages, Numbers, and Keynote for iCloud and 1 GB of free storage for any documents you create.”

Kelly:

Brillant move by Apple to increase usage of iWork for iCloud by opening it to people who may not have an iPhone, iPad or Mac. I will recommend it to my friends and family as a free alternative to Microsoft Office.

Smartflash filed its original case before the iPhone 6/Plus and iPad Air 2 were launched, so the company now wants extra cash for these, reports Reuters.

The DQN algorithm performed at more than 75 percent of the level of a professional player in more than half the games, and came up with far-sighted strategies that let it achieve the maximum attainable scores in certain games, such as Breakout. IT outperformed previous machine learning methods in 43 of the games.

U.S. says absurd Chinese rules on selling technology...

The U.S. government has accused China of violating trade agreements by imposing “intrusive” and “protectionist” rules that would prevent companies like Apple selling technology to Chinese banks.
The regulations, announced by China last month, would have required Western companies to turn over source code for products sold to banks, supposedly to permit security checks to be made–a demand to which Apple and other tech companies could never agree.
The WSJ reports that U.S. Trade Representative Michael Froman said today that the rules were unacceptable.

“China’s new regulations on the use of information and communications technology in the banking industry go directly against a series of China’s bilateral and multilateral trade commitments. For example, the rules would require technology...

It’s Friday night—time for you and your buddies to hammer out your plans for the evening. You know the drill: you start with a group text, then you launch Yelp to find a restaurant or bar nearby. Oh, there will be eight of you? Better make a reservation; switch to Open Table. Joe suggests you catch a movie first, so now you launch Fandango. And the app-switching cycle continues until your plan is finalized. 

Vurb offers what Lo refers to as “contextual search,” which pairs your search with relevent apps and services for you to connect with. To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

Who killed Tony the Tiger?

Bloomberg:For almost a century, Kellogg defined the American breakfast: a moment when people would be jolted out of their drowsiness—often with a stupendous serving of sugar. The sales of 19 of Kellogg’s top 25 cereals eroded last year, according to Consumer Edge Research, a Stamford (Conn.) firm that tracks the food industry. Sales of Frosted Flakes, the company’s No. 1 brand, fell 4.5 percent. Kellogg executives don’t expect cereal sales to return to growth this year, though they hope to slow the rate of decline and do better in 2016. But some Wall Street analysts say cereal sales may never fully recover. In Battle Creek, so-called Cereal City, that would be the equivalent of the apocalypse.I haven’t sat down to a bowl of breakfast cereal in more than a decade but my favourite was always Apple Jacks....

FCC votes for net neutrality

Ars Technica:The Federal Communications Commission today voted to enforce net neutrality rules that prevent Internet providers—including cellular carriers—from blocking or throttling traffic or giving priority to Web services in exchange for payment. The most controversial part of the FCC’s decision reclassifies fixed and mobile broadband as a telecommunications service, with providers to be regulated as common carriers under Title II of the Communications Act. This decision brings Internet service under the same type of regulatory regime faced by wireline telephone service and mobile voice, though the FCC is forbearing from stricter utility-style rules that it could also apply under Title II.This is a big step but the fight isn’t over yet....

Rumor: Tim Cook vouches for shower-safe, waterproof...



Well, there’s gotta be a nugget of truth in here somewhere.
The rumor mill currently has Apple CEO Tim Cook telling Apple Store employees in Berlin that he wears his Apple Watch everywhere, “even in the shower.”
Apple has not officially designated the Apple Watch as either waterproof or water resistant. If Mr. Cook actually said he wears his in the shower, it could indicate that Apple will market the device as one or the other.

This is all just hearsay at this point, there could have been some translation issues and it could be a joke, so it’s hard to know how much stock to put in this.

"Instead of revealing the true condition of the company and its prospects, defendants hid those facts from investors and chose to issue strong guidance and paint a picture of a bright future with a new mega-customer," the complai......
