  8. There's a lot of talk about Apple's shift to a new screen technology with the "iPhone 8," but fewer conversations about how it will all work — AppleInsider explains what changes Apple will likely need to make to implement the technology, while retaining Touch ID on the front of the rumored edge-to-edge screen on the device. A rumored shift to an OLED screen in the "iPhone 8" changes the game — not just for battery life, but for related technologies. Apple has had a great deal of success with the best-in-class fingerprint reader technology that it has used since the iPhone 5s, but unless it's moved to the back of the phone, the underlying sensing technology needs to change. As it stands with the iPhone 5s through the iPhone 7, the Touch ID technology developed by AuthenTec senses the presence of a finger with a detection ring which switches on the sensor when it detects a digit. The sensor itself is clad in a thin sapphire crystal, and uses a complimentary metal oxide semiconductor capacitive touch sensor to detect the fingerprint's whorls and ridges with 500 pixels per inch resolution. The captured fingerprint is then passed to the Secure Enclave and compared to stored data local to the phone. Should the mathematical models match, the phone is unlocked. There are two major revisions of Touch ID, with the only real difference being sensing speed in more recent version on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 7 families. So where's the problem? The problem lies with the difference in thickness between the sapphire lens and the sensor. The sensor itself is 170 microns thick, with the sapphire lens not that much thicker. While an OLED screen assembly is thinner than that of a comparative LCD display, the glass cover is about the same thickness between the technologies. At just less than 1 millimeter thick, the screen glass is over five times the thickness of the sapphire lens on the existing Touch ID sensor on the iPhone 7. With fingerprint sensors used in Touch ID, as separation between the contact surface where a user places their finger and the capacitive sensing array increases, there is a corresponding blurring of the finger's electric field captured by the Touch ID sensor. In the existing Touch ID implementation, the lens is sufficiently thin that any distortion, or aberration, is minimal. When a sensor is placed behind a thicker lens, in the case of the "iPhone 8," behind the screen glass itself, the inevitable blurring without some form of correction can lead to degraded fingerprint image resolutions and decreased recognition accuracy. Math can be used to determine exactly how much distortion would be introduced with thicker glass — but it is extremely complex and to figure it out precisely would require more data about the optics of the sapphire Touch ID cover than is currently known. However, roughly speaking, the aberrations induced between Touch ID now, and if it was embedded behind much thicker screen glass would increase between 5 and 15 times what is expected now. If Apple compensated in software for that and allowed for more fingerprint variation between what is stored and what is sensed, it would make Touch ID much less secure. This would likely be unsatisfactory for the banking industry, and would impact Apple Pay. However, Apple has a patent for a touch sensor using an array of electrostatic lenses. By using the lenses in between a designated touch area and the sensor behind the thicker glass, the electric field associated with a user's finger can be presented undistorted — or less distorted — to a sensor embedded in the glass.
  9. Apple on Wednesday updated Apple Maps with new data on EV charging stations and bicycle rental/dropoff points, focusing most of its expanded coverage in Europe. In the U.K., electric car drivers can now find charging thanks to data from Moovility, a service from Germany's Cirrantic, Bloomberg said. The public bicycle information currently covers London and Paris, and one U.S. city, New York. Apple first began identifying EV chargers in Maps in July 2016, as a result of a deal with Parkopedia. That improved further with the addition of ChargePoint stations in December. Bike rental data is a new field for Apple, and the company will have to work hard to catch up with Google Maps, which has pickup and dropoff points listed in several countries. Apple stripped Google content from its Maps app with the 2012 release of iOS 6. That initially created serious problems, since replacement data —pulled from various third-party sources —was not only sparse but sometimes dangerously inaccurate, and moreover lacking in features people had become accustomed to, such as public transit directions. Since then Apple has worked to rebuild and enhance Maps as much as possible, most significantly restoring transit directions with 2015's iOS 9. Future enhancements may include indoor mapping and better car navigation, as well as more regular content updates thanks to drones.
  10. Interesting if they do. Being the 10th Anniversary, I'd expect them to go big this year.
  11. Google on Tuesday announced another update to the iOS version of Google Maps, bringing support for a Timeline feature previously limited to Web and Android users. On iOS the option can be accessed from the app's main menu, or else from the place cards of previously-visited destinations. Stops are arranged in linear order, including details like distances traveled and the transportation used. Users can edit locations and activities to be more precise, for instance specifying that they were cycling, hiking, or kayaking. Users can optionally receive monthly summary emails, and place cards will now include the dates of past visits. Google suggested that the Timeline can be useful for remembering discoveries, or figuring out when a particular errand was done. To address privacy concerns, the feature lets people delete single or multiple days, or else wipe their entire history. The iOS Timeline is rolling out beginning today, but may not be immediately accessible to all users. On Monday Google updated Maps with an iOS Directions widget, as well as location-sharing in Messages.
  12. The iPhone version of Snapchat on Tuesday updated with a feature called World Lenses, making more advanced use of the augmented reality technology Snap has experimented with for over a year. World Lenses insert 3D assets into photos, mapping graphical objects and text to their surrounding environment. As a result users can walk around them, allowing on-the-fly perspective changes. In a promotional video, some sample objects were presented including clouds, rainbows, and stylized text. One World Lens can actually "plant" flowers as a person walks around. Until now, Lenses have typically been linked to people, enabling things like masks or face swaps. The new ones can be found by tapping on the camera screen when using the app's rear-facing camera. On Tuesday, Snapchat's chief rival Facebook simultaneously announced plans to push further into augmented reality through its Stories mobile feature. The company has in fact faced criticism for copying Snapchat, which originated the Stories name and concept, and the same sort of AR enhancements Facebook is expanding upon.
  13. Looking to recover from last year's exploding Note 7 fiasco, Samsung is expected to launch its first ever dual camera handset in the Note 8 later this year, according to a report from KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. In a note to investors released on Tuesday, and obtained by AppleInsider, Kuo said the iPhone 7 Plus inspired dual camera system will be the most important new feature for Samsung's Note 8. While other smartphone manufacturers have in the past included two or more shooters in their respective high-end offerings, Apple's dual lens solution in iPhone 7 Plus garnered industry praise for its seamless integration and ability to achieve stunning images with relative ease. Of note, iPhone 7 Plus introduced users to Portrait Mode. Built into Apple's first-party camera app, the feature leverages both wide angle and "telephoto" lenses, complex computer vision algorithms and depth mapping technology to naturally blur image backgrounds while keeping the subject in sharp focus. Officially considered beta software, the artificial depth of field effect is meant to mimic high-end DSLRs. Whether Samsung intends to build similar functionality into its forthcoming phablet is unknown, but the hardware is expected to sport a 12-megapixel wide-angle CIS with dual photodiode technology, a 13-megapixel telephoto CIS and 3x optical zoom. Both sensor stacks will be backed by optical image stabilization and topped with six-element plastic lenses. Kuo believes Samsung's camera package will be "much better" than the dual camera array found on iPhone 7 Plus, and could potentially match the performance of Apple's rumored "iPhone 8." The Note 8 is also expected to include a 6.4-inch QHD+ OLED display with full-screen design, a Exynos 9 series (8895) processor and iris recognition. Samsung was thought to be looking into Synaptics' optical fingerprint recognition solution for the Note 8, which would have allowed the company to build a reader directly into the front-facing display. As the technology remains immature, however, the firm has decided to integrate a standard fingerprint sensor into the handset's rear casing, much like the recently released Galaxy S8, Kuo says. The analyst believes Samsung's full-screen design and back-mounted fingerprint sensor design will become mainstream form factor for high-end smartphones. In a separate note released last week, Kuo reports market response to Samsung's Galaxy S8 and S8+ has been better than expected. The analyst initially issued a conservative assessment due to the handset's cumbersome fingerprint module placement, but consumer response to the large full-face "Infinity Screen" exceeded expectations. For fiscal 2017, Kuo estimates Galaxy S8 series shipments at 50 to 55 million, and the Note 8 at 13 to 15 million units.
  14. Sites running. Just have nobody to post at the moment. If you wish to participate that would be great haha conversation is mainly at http://telegram.me/iosjb
  15. So I may have missed a memo somewhere along the way, but the site updates went from few and far between to now almost non-existant; Is the site no longer running?
  16. Mainly looking for staff who will write articles. thanks.
  17. What tvOS does it have on it?
  18. ok so finally picked up an appletv 4. is there a way to install kodi without hooking it up to a pc? didn't know it uses USB-C. i know with my amazon fire tv box i didnt even need to hook the device to my laptop to get kodi on it
  19. A few days ago I decided to search around the web for an alternative to now dead project Turntable.fm. As a huge music fan, I would find myself spending hours on Turntable.fm discovering new music played by others while we would chat about any favorite artists, song, genres, etc. There was this cool feeling of sharing those songs you like with others and expect some positive feedback and praise from your music taste. Unfortunately, Turntable.fm faced many licensing issues that lead to it's demise, but for those of us looking for an alternative on synchronized online music-listening rooms there is a new, solid project (that also comes with a catch). I came across JQBX which is currently available for iPhone and Mac (Windows and Android coming soon). The app gives Spotify Premium users the ability to enter music rooms and share from single tracks to complete playlists with others. Any track played on the room can be added to your Spotify playlist with complete sync between the two apps thus giving users more options than Turntable.fm ever did. This app is relatively new and the developers are still ironing a few details as well as gathering user feedback to add new features but it is certainly heading in the right direction. Future Soundcloud and Apple Music integration is something that the developers are considering as well. If you have a Spotify Premium account and like sharing your music tastes or discovering others then give JQBX a try.

  22. Rumour has it, Trump is eyeing her for a cabinet post! They figure they can get the $20 trillion national deficit paid off in under 6 months, and then after that, everyone's personal credit cards and mortgages, making the USA the worlds first debt free country in less than a year.. next year the govt will pay everyone's health care premiums, without any tax hikes.. they've thought of all angles... like if they need more, simply send out some free Viagra samples and.. voila,,, an extra trillion dollars in government coffers.. Brilliant... just Brilliant! only cons of this is blindness and hairy palms... but.. glasses, seeing eyed dogs palm razors are cheap! forget obamacare or trumpcare introducing "wankercare" the only truly free national healthcare illegal immigrants would not qualify for wankercare because they are too stressed worrying about being deported to do any real wanking contributions.. sorry you gotta read this CNN.com story: http://www.cnn.com/2017/03/13/health/abortion-texas-lawmaker-trnd/?iid=ob_lockedrail_topeditorial
  23. We’ve been hearing a lot about Apple’s ambitions with augmented reality, and a new reportfrom Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman adds to the intrigue. As similar stories have said in the past, Apple is reportedly working on AR glasses (which won’t be ready for a while) and plans to put augmented reality features in the next iPhone. It’s got “hundreds of engineers” working on the tech, says Gurman, including individuals poached from Microsoft’s HoloLens team and Facebook-owned Oculus. Here’s Gurman on what the first iPhone AR tools might look like: One of the features Apple is exploring is the ability to take a picture and then change the depth of the photograph or the depth of specific objects in the picture later; another would isolate an object in the image, such as a person's head, and allow it to be tilted 180 degrees. A different feature in development would use augmented reality to place virtual effects and objects on a person, much the way Snapchat works. This certainly fits with reports from other sources. Last month, the reliable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo suggested that this year’s iPhone would have a “revolutionary” camera augmented with an infrared projector and receiver. This would offer capabilities similar to the Kinect peripheral Microsoft made for the Xbox, including depth sensing and 3D mapping. Augmented reality hasn’t been subject to the same buzz as virtual reality, but arguably, that’s because it’s more practical. It doesn’t immerse you in virtual worlds for entertainment purposes, but adds useful information to your line of sight — anything from navigational cues to mechanical labels. Apple CEO Tim Cook has said on a number of occasions he thinks AR will be bigger than VR. However, if this latest Bloomberg report is anything go by, the first AR features in Apple products will be pretty simple. [Via The Verge]
