while the architecture and landscape of apple’s new campus in cupertino have been extensively documented through photography, drone flights, and spirited conversation, a new video from manufacturer leon speakers calls attention to an overlooked aspect of apple park – its audio system. samsung gear 360leon speakers is an ann arbor, mi based company specializing in custom audio products for high-end retailers and clients. according to the video, the company was selected to be apple park’s custom audio provider in the spring of 2016, long before the campus began welcoming employees. in total, 734 of leon’s horizon and profile ultima speakers were created for apple in under three months, outfitting 367 “huddle rooms” within apple park. leon commercial sales director mike fencil notes that apple had specific needs for superior performance and speech intelligibility for their speakers, which were required to fit in very precise spaces and forms. the horizon series of soundbars are reference-grade speakers that can be built up to 120 inches wide and mounted to televisions or walls using custom brackets. the profile series of speakers, designed to be mounted vertically, are similarly hand-crafted to match the exact height of any display and are described as featuring an “incredibly flat frequency response.” speech intelligibility was likely a high priority for apple as the system appears to be used for video conferencing in concert with lg’s 68uh5c television, an...

snapchat rolling out new send and request location features aimed to be more privacy cautious
snapchat is the original proprietor of the ephemeral sharing idea, before major players such as instagram began copying its ideas. looking to gain a leg up on competitors like instagram, snapchat is expanding its location sharing features..as reported by techcrunch, snapchat is rolling out a new send and request location feature that allows friends to get your real-time always updating location, or request their location if need be. all of this shows up in the snap map and in message threads.this builds on top of previous snapchat location features, but carries a new focus on privacy. snapchat’s over location sharing features have been criticized for lacking privacy controls.techcrunch was able to confirm that this feature will be rolling out to both ios and android users within the coming weeks.now when you long-press on a friend’s name or hit the three-line hamburger button on a chat thread, you’ll get the option to send location or request location. it only works with bi-directional friends, so you can’t ask for the spot of your favorite snap star if they don’t follow you back, and you can turn off getting requests in your settings if people are spamming you.location data will only show for up to 8 hours since you last opened the app, with the ability to stop sharing your location at any time.check out 9to5mac on youtube for more apple news:

pro camera app obscura 2 launches with new filters, metadata viewer, and one-hand friendly ui that looks great on iphone x
the alternative camera app market has been heating up lately. apple’s stock camera app is great for the average person, but intentionally hides away advanced options like manual controls for iso and shutter speed. also, on iphone x, the camera app doesn’t quite fit in with lots of unused blank space and a hard-to-reach top toolbar.obscura 2 is a worthy contender in the pro camera app market, launching today in the app store ($4.99). the main screen incorporates all controls into a bottom third of the screen, easily accessible when using the iphone one-handed. there are dedicated buttons for common actions of changing exposure and focus, and a simple ‘control wheel’ dial houses the rest of the controls. obscura includes a rich set of filters, gestures and a beautifully integrated photo library browser.try amazon prime 30-day free trialthe navigational interface of obscura is well-considered. you can access all camera controls with just your thumb, leaving most of the display to the viewfinder. the dial is a clever user interface element to pack in a lot of disparate settings into a small space; you scroll through filters, zoom mode, grid overlays, flash options, timer controls, file formats and more with this single piece of ui.exposure, focus, shutter speed and iso options are given top billing with permanent buttons on the left and right side of the screen. tapping on either of these swaps out the main dial for a custom slider to adjust the relevant values. all app c...

speaker manufacturer leon details challenges of designing apple park’s audio system [video]
while the architecture and landscape of apple’s new campus in cupertino have been extensively documented through photography, drone flights, and spirited conversation, a new video from manufacturer leon speakers calls attention to an overlooked aspect of apple park – its audio system. samsung gear 360leon speakers is an ann arbor, mi based company specializing in custom audio products for high-end retailers and clients. according to the video, the company was selected to be apple park’s custom audio provider in the spring of 2016, long before the campus began welcoming employees. in total, 734 of leon’s horizon and profile ultima speakers were created for apple in under three months, outfitting 367 “huddle rooms” within apple park. leon commercial sales director mike fencil notes that apple had specific needs for superior performance and speech intelligibility for their speakers, which were required to fit in very precise spaces and forms. the horizon series of soundbars are reference-grade speakers that can be built up to 120 inches wide and mounted to televisions or walls using custom brackets. the profile series of speakers, designed to be mounted vertically, are similarly hand-crafted to match the exact height of any display and are described as featuring an “incredibly flat frequency response.” speech intelligibility was likely a high priority for apple as the system appears to be used for video conferencing in concert with lg’s 68uh5c television, an...

vevo music platform axing ios and apple tv apps, shifting to youtube only
vevo is likely one of the more popular music video streaming platforms on the internet. most people view their content on youtube, and today vevo plans to narrow down its focus to just that service.announced in a blog post, vevo says it will be removing its apps from not only ios and tvos, but all other platforms outside of youtube, which means its webos (smart tv), android, and other applications as well.going forward, vevo will remain focused on engaging the biggest audiences and pursuing growth opportunities.  our catalog of premium music videos and original content will continue to reach a growing audience on youtube and we are exploring ways to work with additional platforms to further expand access to vevo’s content.while vevo has yet to set a specific deadline for when it will be removing these apps, it would be no surprise if they’re planning to remove them as soon as possible as it’s clear that the company wants to focus in on youtube.it’ll be interesting to see if the app will be removed from the older non-app store apple tvs such as the second- or third-generation models.check out 9to5mac on youtube for more apple news:

t-mobile website exposed customer data, had no password protection
t-mobile has recently patched a flaw in how it stores customer information. reported by zdnet, the wireless provider was storing its customers’ personal data on a website that lacked password protection and may have been vulnerable for months.airpodsthe data was available for anyone to look up who knew the t-mobile subdomain. intended for t-mobile internal use, the previously non-password protected site that could be found via search engine turned up a lot of personal data by just entering a phone number.the returned data included a customer’s full name, postal address, billing account number, and in some cases information about tax identification numbers. the data also included customers’ account information, such as if a bill is past-due or if the customer had their service suspended.the data also included references to account pins used by customers as a security question when contacting phone support. anyone could use that information to hijack accounts.zdnet notes that t-mobile pulled the api last month after it was reported by ryan stevenson, a security researcher.a t-mobile spokesperson responded by saying that “the bug was patched as soon as possible and we have no evidence that any customer information was accessed.”notably, the carrier suffered from a very similar issue last year on a different subdomain as spotted by motherboard.t-mobile said the same then that it had “no evidence” that data was compromised, but that later changed.although t-mobile s...

os x/macos now older than classic mac os
older readers might still remember when macs made the transition to os x, more recently rebranded to macos. but if you still kind of think of that as the ‘new’ os, as of today it’s actually now been around for longer than all the preceding versions – collectively and colloquially known as classic mac os …nordvpnjason snell marked the occasion in a blog post yesterday.today marks 17 years, one month, and 29 days since mac os x 10.0 was released on march 24, 2001. that’s a strangely odd number—6,269 days—but it also happens to be the exact length of time between january 24, 1984 (the launch of the original macintosh) and march 24, 2001.in other words, today the mac’s second operating system era, powered by mac os x (now macos) has been in existence as long as the first era was.as he notes, it does depend somewhat on how you measure these things.there was a mac os x public beta. the funeral for mac os 9 wasn’t held until 2002. classic mode continued to function within mac os x until it was removed in mac os x 10.5 leopard.so for beta users, the milestone may have been passed a while back, and for those who held onto mac os 9 for some time after os x launched, it may not yet have arrived.early versions of the macintosh system software had no official name, with apple referring only to macintosh toolbox rom and the system folder. it only became macintosh system software in 1987, with what was then known as system 5. apple rebranded it to mac os in 1996, at sy...

many facebook questions still unanswered, as non-eu users asked to review settings
facebook ceo mark zuckerberg was widely criticized yesterday for failing to answer many of the questions put to him by the european parliament.he promised written answers to these, and some have been provided, but more than half of the unanswered questions remain so …nordvpnthe q&as were published on the european parliament website.of the questions that were answered, many were vague, often failing to provide a yes or no answer to yes or no questions. for example:if you do that, is it morally acceptable do you think to collect non-facebook users’ data without them knowing what you do with it? we are clear with people about the information facebook collects — whether you use our service or not. and we expect the websites and apps that use our services to be equally clear. for example, when other websites use our services they are required to let people know via their data policy, cookie policy or cookie banner.one answer did give a startling insight into the scale of the fake accounts problem, the company saying it blocks ‘millions’ every day.will facebook commit to eradicate all remaining fake accounts by the end of the quarter, and systematically prevent the creation going forward? we’re committed to doing everything we can to keep fake accounts off facebook. but we cannot promise to eradicate them because, as mark said yesterday, “security is not a problem you ever fully solve. we face sophisticated, well-funded adversaries who are constantly evolving”...
