It’s interesting that it’s taken this long for Apple Watch to be in the middle of a sports cheating scandal. Should be good PR for Apple and its Apple Watch, one way or another.
Aside from ARKit, another API that Apple released to developers this summer is a Vision API which can “identify faces, detect features, and classify scenes in images and video.”
This is a great feature because it’s faster to open links this way than long-pressing them or even using 3D Touch.
Eddie Alterman is the Editor-in-Chief of Car and Driver magazine. He fell in love with cars even earlier than most of us. His father was a car salesman in Detroit in the 1970s when cars weren’t great, but it was still exciting. His dad would leave copies of Car and Driver magazine open on the dining room table for Eddie. It worked. Eddie imagined that all the editors who got to test cars were “living the best possible life.” So Eddie designed his whole life around writing for a car magazine. It worked again. In the second segment we chatted about the romance of driving and also spent a lot of time discussing the technology and sociology of autonomous cars. Eddie had some great observations, based on his considerable experience, that will keep you pondering for months.

Kudos to 9to5Mac‘s publisher, Seth Weintraub, for a huge scoop. Reporting from Internationale Funkausstellung Berlin (IFA), an electronics trade show in Berlin, Mr. Weintraub uncovered what could well be the official names of Apple’s next round of iPhones. Specifically: iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone Edition. The news is based on leaks from Apple’s supply chain that wound up in the hands of case makers. Those case makers were confident enough in their intel to start printing up packaging for cases for unannounced iPhones. Read through his entire piece, as he makes a very compelling argument for why this information is likely reliable. If it does turn out to be true, it would mean that Apple is skipping the “iPhone 7s” and jumping straight to iPhone 8 for its base iPhone line. The much-rumored special iPhone, which had been dubbed everything from iPhone Pro to iPhone 8, will be iPhone Edition. It’s a good lineup of names, in my opinion, and I think there’s a lot of merit to this story.
Apple CEO Tim Cook has made no secret of his love for Auburn University, his alma mater. He puts his money and his mouth (literally) towards that love in a new promotional video for Auburn with not one, but two appearances [via 9to5Mac]. The spot features past and present students yelling the War Eagle, the school’s slow-motion battle cry. Tim Cook is doing his remotely, probably from Apple Park. Then we cut to an auburn-haired student holding her (Apple) iPad, where Tim continues his War Eagle cry through the magic of (Apple’s) FaceTime. That’s like a 3-for-1 for Mr. Cook, and a continuation of his efforts to raise his (and Apple’s) public profile. Check it out.
It’s been one year now with the 2016 MacBook Pro’s Touch Bar. What’s the verdict?
