iPhone 8 Cases Already for Sale on Alibaba

Fri, 26 May 2017 15:17:44 +0000

(image)

Macotakara found what claims to be an iPhone 8 case on the shopping site Alibaba, so they ordered one to see how it compares to size-wise to the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. The case matches the rumors and leaks we’ve already seen because it’s slightly too big for the iPhone 7 and just a little too small for the 7 Plus. Odds are the case was designed based on leaks and not Apple’s actual design specifications, so it may not fit an actual iPhone 8. That said, the video they made makes it easy to visualize about how big the phone will be.

New Apple Cartoon Looks at the Liam Recycling Robot

Thu, 25 May 2017 16:32:15 +0000

(image)

Apple launched a new video called “Earth Day 2017 — Does my iPhone believe in reincarnation?” It’s part of the cartoon series the company started on Earth Day earlier in May, but this one takes a look at Liam. That’s Apple’s purpose-built recycling robot that pulls iPhones apart so the components can be reused. I like this series of environmentally-themed cartoons. They’re fun, interesting, and informative. Lisa Jackson, Apple Vice President Environment, Policy and Social Initiatives, tweeted the video Thursday.

Andy Grignon 10 Years Later, Reflecting on Helping to Create the iPhone

Thu, 25 May 2017 13:53:50 +0000

Skylar Hamilton*, writing for Mouth of the River, recently interviewed Andy Grignon, one of the original iPhone team members:

“It was terrifying to be honest! Remember we had spent years in solitude working on this thing under the strictest of Apple standards. Seeing it ‘out in the wild’ was surreal, to say the least,” says Grignon. Imagine hiding something so big for years and then the entire world not only knows about it, but they all use it. “After that feeling passed, it turned into sheer terror.”

*Yes, for those of you wondering, this is a “proud papa” moment for me, too. Forget that, though, and go read the interview. Some great stuff in there, including a tip about extending your battery life!

The release was first spotted by German site Macerkopf.de (via iDownloadblog). You can download the firmware update via your iPhone with your AirPods in their charging case. Your charging case will need to be plugged into a power source.

Samsung’s Iris Scanning Joke, Crappy Business is Not OK, and PC Design – ACM 412

Wed, 24 May 2017 22:26:31 +0000

Unsurprisingly, Samsung’s crappy iris scanner on the Galaxy S8 has been defeated. Worse, defeating it is easy. Bryan and Jeff think it’s a joke and another example of Samsung’s delusions of relevance. They also discuss Bryan’s theory that PC makers can’t compete with Apple’s MacBook with me-too design, and say that surveillance capitalists being honest about spying on your doesn’t make their spying OK.

The Telegraph’s 93 Second Primer Steve Jobs’s Career

Wed, 24 May 2017 22:12:47 +0000

(image)

London newspaper The Telegraph published a quickie biography of Steve Jobs on Wednesday. The 2,100 piece is titled, “Who was Steve Jobs? Tech trailblazer and co-founder of the Apple empire.”  It’s an in-depth piece for a newspaper article, but it’s still a short look into a person like Steve Jobs’s entire life. It’s probably perfect for someone who’s curious about Steve Jobs, but hasn’t delved deep into all things Apple. Accompanying the written piece was a 93 second video that runs  through Steve Jobs’s career with slides, information, and other highlights. Again, there’s little new for hardcore fans, but both the article and the video are excellent primers for anyone who’s been curious about the late Steve Jobs.

Watch the Game of Thrones Season 7 Trailer

Wed, 24 May 2017 20:11:31 +0000

(image)

OK, Game of Thrones fans, war is nigh. HBO released the trailer for Game of Thrones Season 7, which will first air on July 16th, 2017. The show outpaced the books during Season 6, leaving many fans all the hungrier to know what happens. Judging by the trailer, what happens is war, war, battles, dragons, war, and a side of war thrown in just for fun. In fact, the closing line of the trailer is, “The great war is hear,” and if I’m not mistaken, it’s one Jon Snow saying it. But hey, I could be wrong. Enjoy!

Apple Music bought the rights to Can’t Stop Won’t Stop: A Bad Boy Story, a documentary about Sean “Diddy” Combs and his record label, Bad Boy Records. The film was debuted at the Tribecka Film Festival earlier this year, and Apple Music subsequently bought the rights to it. The focus of the film is a reunion show with The Bad Boy Family, the original group of artists that launched with Bad Boy Records. According to the Tribecka Festivail, “the film also looks back to trace the label’s emergence in Harlem and Brooklyn, it’s meteoric rise, the tragic killing of Biggie Smalls, and the lasting influence on music, fashion, marketing and culture.” Note Apple executive Jimmy Iovine’s brief appearance in the trailer. The film debuts exclusively on Apple Music on June 25th, 2017.

There’s a $399 3D Printer on Kickstarter

Tue, 23 May 2017 22:05:15 +0000

(image)

3D printing is poised to be affordable by a lot more people, and there’s a project on Kickstarter speaking to this trend. It’s called Neva, and it’s a $399 3D printer from established 3D printer manufacturer Dagoma. Actually, there are $299 Early Bird pledge level available as of this writing that will net you a Neva, but the retail price for the device is set at $399. In addition to being inexpensive, it’s designed to be operated with just one button. They’re also made in California, and the bases themselves are 3D printed. The video below is a tad weird in that the narrator tells you lots of things and then says, “but we won’t” tell you that thing. It’s interesting anyway. The project blew past its funding goal of $50,000 in a few hours (earning more than $10,000 in pledges while I wrote this Cool Stuff Found). That speaks to the desire that many people have to be able to 3D print on their own desk.

The Good That Has Come Out of Apple’s Mac Lapses

Mon, 22 May 2017 21:27:42 +0000

Apple customers have waited for a long time to get new, updated Mac models. Apple kicked off the resurgence in late 2016 with the Touch Bar MacBook Pro, but there remained serious concerns. And that’s a Good Thing™. The development of technology and the approaches by the competition have evoked a strong, clear, intelligent response from the community that amounts to an excellent, thoughtful conversation about what Macs should be all about going forward. Particle Debris page 2 discusses that and ponders more new Mac hardware at WWDC in June.

Apple launched a new advertising campaign called Switch to iPhone at apple.com/switch.

The message is that it’s simple to switch to iPhone, which is faster, that your music will sound better, and that moving your photos is easy. Watch the four videos that make that argument in our full story.

Time-Lapse Video of Living Zen Sand Art Coffee Table

Mon, 22 May 2017 20:00:42 +0000

(image)

Check out this amazing time-lapse video of the Sisyphus 1, a living zen, kinetic, sand art coffee table. It was crowd funded on Kickstarter in 2016, where it raised US$1.9 million from 1,992 backers. MentalFloss noted Monday that the company—Sisyphus Industries—has a commercial website in development while it finishes ramping up production capability for the device. The premise is captivating. The table has a bed of fine sand under glass. A steel ball is controlled by a mechanism underneath the sand. That mechanism uses magnetism to push the ball in intricate patterns across the sand, drawing amazing patterns in the process. Once a pattern is complete, the table starts on a new pattern (until it’s turned off). It’s lit, too, which you control from a smartphone. I could watch the videos all day long. I can’t even imagine how captivating the real table would be. The video I embedded below is a time-lapse, but there are many more videos on the original Kickstarter project, including one with lots of closeups of the ball rolling in the sand.

TMO Background Mode Interview with Computer Historian and Author David Greelish

Mon, 22 May 2017 19:46:58 +0000

(image)

David Greelish is an author, podcaster and personal computer historian. Back when he was in college in the mid-1980s, he got a job in one of the early computer stores that was also an Apple dealer. They sold all kinds of PCs, but David fell in love with the Mac. While he couldn’t afford one, his quest continued until he was able to acquire a used Lisa (that ran Mac software). Like many of us, he fell in love with the early computer movement, and that started his obsession with computer history. He’s the founder of the Historical Computer Society, the Atlanta Historical Computing Society, and was Cofounder/Director of the first Vintage Computer Festival S.E. His interviews with industry luminaries are legendary. Take a walk down computer memory lane with me and David.

It’s a pretty safe bet we know what the still unconfirmed iPhone 8 will look like when it’s unveiled this fall, and now we have a better idea of how it stacks up size-wise with the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus. Reports so far say the iPhone 8 will be about the same size as the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7s, and that’s exactly what we’re seeing in the leaked phone mold photos.

Apple’s driverless test car—a Lexus SUV—was caught in the wild by a MacRumors reader. There’s nothing earth-shattering about catching Apple’s autonomous vehicle in the wild—it’s been done before. But, I enjoy these reminders that Apple is going full steam ahead on developing driverless technology. Project Titan leaks have dramatically slowed since Bob Mansfield took it over, but testing obviously continues apace. MacRumor‘s Juli Clover has some additional details on this particular spotting.
