Aside from adding 4K and HDR support and a few odds and ends, the Apple TV 4K didn’t change much from its predecessor. Well, except for those complaints about the fact that the 32GB model is, at $179, $30 more expensive than the already-expensive fourth-generation model....

Are we really and truly in the twilight of the PC era? Is it true that most personal computing is moving towards mobile platforms — smartphones and tablets? Will the PC become the pickup truck, as Steve Jobs once claimed, and thus needed by fewer people? Now those of you...

Consider the crazy situation. Apple screwed up, by failing to flesh out release notes to reveal a key fact about a fix for iPhone sudden shutdowns. The solution was to regulate, or slow down performance of the affected devices if they had deteriorating batteries. It wasn’t a...

The iPhone X has taken an interesting journey, more convoluted than most Apple products. When the first rumors about it arose, it wasn’t even referred to as an iPhone X. It was the iPhone 8. Why? Well, it was assumed that the successor to the iPhone 7 must be the iPhone...

I have lived through all the major Mac processor transitions. Makes me feel old. First it was the Motorola 680×0 series, followed by the PowerPC and, by 2006, Intel. Overall, the last one went pretty well. There was a way to run PowerPC software for a few years, courtesy of...

I thought the furor about Apple’s throttling of the performance of iPhones with degraded batteries would have ended by now. But when lawyers stand to make millions of dollars in fees from class-action lawsuits, it may well be that it’ll take years to resolve, unless there’s...

As you know, the Night Owl has been suffering from serious financial difficulties. To make matters worse, hackers have gone after my bank and Twitter accounts in recent months. If you are in a position to help or want more information about the ongoing hate campaign, please...

It’s hard to believe that Apple’s response to Google Maps, Apple Maps, has been around since 2012. It was originally demonstrated at the WWDC that June, with release at the end of September. In addition to the usual turn-by-turn navigation, Apple touted 3D artwork and...

As much as Macworld is regarded as one of the original and few surviving Mac-oriented publications, of late it hasn’t treated Apple so well. In recent months, their bloggers have attempted to redesign the iPhone X in rather a silly fashion, decided Apple must offer a free...

I’m sure many of you know the facts, or at least some of them, about how Apple designs and builds its gear. The conventional impression is that iPhones, iPads, Macs, Apple Watches, Apple TV, HomePod and all the rest are made in China or some other Asian country, and those...

With cash-starved school systems in the U.S. choosing Google Chromebooks and PC netbooks instead of iPads and Macs, many believe that Apple is losing big time in the educational market. Some of that impression comes, according to AppleInsider’s Daniel Eran Dilger, from delibe...

Yes, this article is about Android, but Facebook is a strong part of the picture. It’s not about Cambridge Analytica and that company’s alleged abuse of the personal data of over 50 million American users. That’s bad enough. Instead, it’s about a published report in Ars...

When Apple executive Eddie Cue admitted that the company is developing a slate of original TV shows during an interview at the South by Southwest event in Austin, it was merely an admission of something most followers of the company already knew. Apple is spending one...

As regular readers know, Barbara and I are busy looking for a new home. With a very tight budget, we’ve been traveling across the Phoenix area in search of something affordable. Well, one of the leasing agents we visited the other day greeted us wearing an Apple Watch, and I ...

Let me put my cards on the table. I am no fan of Apple TV, at least not anymore. I did find my third-generation model indispensable, but basically for one reason, and that was Netflix. On occasion, I’d rent a movie from iTunes, and I was always on the lookout for the 99 cent...

Regardless of the choices with cable and satellite TV, or whether you’ve cut the cord, some 55% of American households have subscribed to one or more streaming services. Most of those people have settled on Netflix, but others have chosen Amazon Prime or Hulu. There are...

One thing is certain: Apple’s critics and loads of alleged pundits and industry analysts got the iPhone X completely wrong. Even when the features were correctly described, there were incorrect inferences, or just plain fear-mongering about things that might happen but...

Recently, The Night Owl wrote a piece about two gadgets that are reportedly capable of unlocking iPhones. One comes from an Israeli company, Cellebrite. The other emerges from a startup known as Grayshift, said to be run by former intelligence contractors and a former Apple...
