Apple is quietly killing off Apple Music's Connect social features

Apple Music Connect appears as though it's on its way out. Apple has started to notify artists that they will no longer have the ability to post content to the social network-style service build into Apple's streaming music platform, according to 9to5Mac. Previously shared posts are also being removed from the "For You" section and artists pages hosted in Apple Music. For the time being, posts will still appear in search results within the app, but those will be removed come May. While Apple hasn't explicitly spelled out the end of Connect, it sure seems like that is the inevitable outcome at this point. The company has updated its support documents for Apple Music to reflect that Connect posts from artists are "no longer supported." Seeing as getting artists to share personal posts was one of the primary purposes of Connect, there won't be much reason to preserve the feature. Apple hyped up Connect as a way for artists to have a more personal relationship with their fans when it launched Apple Music in 2015, but the feature has fizzled. Most artists haven't been active on the platform, and Apple has been pushing Connect out of the spotlight for years. In 2016, the company removed the dedicated tab for Connect from the Apple Music app and relegated posts from artists to the very bottom of the "For You" section, which provides listening recommendations. User-to-user social features like sharing playlists and seeing activity likely aren't going anywhere, but it seems like 2019 could be the year the social tools for artists in Apple Music Connect finally goes the way of iTunes Ping.

'Shattered State' is a VR political thriller designed for the Netflix crowd

Supermassive Games is best known, at least in recent times, for the story-driven horror title Until Dawn, which spawned both a spin-off and a prequel in subsequent years. Other than occasionally flirting with Windows over its nigh decade-long history, Supermassive has focused on developing games for several generations of PlayStation consoles. Its latest project takes it into entirely new territory, however. Political thriller Shattered State is a VR experience that launches today on Google's Daydream platform, and so is available to anyone with a compatible phone or headset. VR itself isn't a new medium for Supermassive. In fact, over the past two years, four out of five of the studio's games have been made specifically for PSVR. Similarly, the choose-your-own-adventure playstyle of Shattered State is something Supermassive has honed over the years, it being the main mechanic of games in the Until Dawn series and 2017's Hidden Agenda. But with Shattered State, the developer is attempting to bring in an altogether different audience -- those that may not have spend a lot of time with consoles and controllers -- both through the genre of political thriller and the accessibility of the Daydream VR platform. Shattered State is set in a country with a recent history of civil unrest. You spend a day in the shoes of the head of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA) -- their most chaotic day on the job, as you quickly discover. Without spelling the story out blow-by-blow, it features government leaks, terrorism, the threat of civil war, a military coup and conflicting agendas within your own inner circle. Even if I did recount my specific journey, every decision you make can take the narrative down vastly divergent paths. For the most part, you're sheltered from the reality of what's unfolding in the city below your penthouse office at NIA headquarters. You're only really made aware through the sporadic reports of your closest advisors, an informant on the ground and the screens of the situation room. The choices you make, though, have consequences that can end up affecting everyone, from the people standing in front of you to the county's leadership. There's a certain frustration in being confined to your ivory tower. You never really feel well-informed enough to make the right decision, but that's all intentional of course. No choice feels mundane or irrelevant, good or evil, and most have ramifications you don't see coming. The stakes crescendo, and you never fully gain control of the situation as you become more invested in the outcome. You just take the path that feels right to you, because there is no winning. ...

Apple is quietly killing off Apple Music's Connect social features

Apple claims it has found a software solution to the court injunction which recently banned some of its older iPhones from being sold in China. In a statement to Reuters the company said it would be issuing a software update “early next week” which it believes will address “the minor functionality of the two patents at issue in the case.” If the courts agree, this update will mean that Apple can continue to sell the iPhones affected by the ban, which include the iPhone 6S, 6S Plus, 7, 7 Plus, 8, 8 Plus, and X. Apple was recently found to be infringing upon two of Qualcomm’s patents in China, which were reportedly relating to resizing pictures and managing applications. When the ban was first announced, Apple claimed to CNBC that iOS 12 — the most recent version of its software — does not infringe on those patents. If true, then issuing an update to force the affected iPhone models to update to iOS 12 could be enough to reverse the decision. Apple has already filed a request for reconsideration in China over the ban. However, this update is unlikely to bring the dispute to an end if Qualcomm, which Apple claims wants a settlement, has its way. Just yesterday the chipmaker requested a further injunction to ban sales of the iPhone XS and XR, which are Apple’s latest iPhone models sold with iOS 12 pre-installed, the version of the software that Apple claims doesn’t infringe upon the patents. The dispute between Apple and Qualcomm in China is just one part of the global legal battle between the two companies. Qualcomm has previously attempted to ban iPhones in the US, and has also claimed that Apple stole its source code and shared it with its rival Intel. Apple meanwhile, has previously claimed that Qualcomm has been dramatically overcharging for the use of its patents. Given the bad blood that now exists between the two companies it seems unlikely that Qualcomm will be satisfied with a simple software fix, but it will ultimately be up to the Chinese courts to have the final say.

Skateboarding legend says ‘Tony Hawk’s Skate Jam’ will appeal to his fans

Tony Hawk is back with a new video game, and it’s his first done without the involvement of longtime partner Activision. Built from the ground up for mobile devices, Tony Hawk’s Skate Jam is a free-to-play skating game that drops you into a skate park to try your hand at some of the sport’s most famous tricks. Hawk himself had a major role in designing the game, working with publisher Maple Media to ensure that it has the iconic tricks and style we’ve come to associate with skating since it exploded in popularity during the late 20th century. Digital Trends had the chance to interview Hawk to ask him about the project and how it compares to his past video games, and the Birdman clearly sees games like Skate Jam as the future. “I saw what [Maple Media] has developed, and the engine they were doing, and realized that with my expertise and my experience, we could make something that was more akin to the types of games that people know me for,” Hawk told us. Hawk added that he thinks Maple Media has done well to make sure Skate Jam controls well on mobile devices, and that the younger generation of players — those who grew up playing on mobile — are still interested in skateboarding because of how low the barrier of entry is in 2018. Still, those who remember playing Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2 growing up aren’t being forgotten. “I definitely felt an obligation to those fans — to bring more of that gameplay to them,” Hawk said. “And I think that we have done that. If it’s going to have my name on it, I want people to have some familiarity with how they control it. I have that same rush when you land a big combo in the game that I used to [when actually skating,] so I know we’re on the right track.” Hawk wants that classic nostalgia-fueled excitement to extend to the music in Skate Jam, as well. He helped to pick the songs included on the soundtrack, and hopes that players will actually want to listen to the music rather than play something else on their phone in the background. Classic skate punk and new wave songs will be included, as well as a wider variety of genres. Tony Hawk’s Skate Jam is available now on iOS and Android. In addition to a free skate mode and a career mode, there is also an online multiplayer component which global tournaments. Despite the game’s release, Hawk is not done working on it. “I’m in it,” he stressed when asked about post-launch support. “I’m in this process.” Tony Hawk certainly means that, if his past perseverance is anything to go by. Back in 2016, when he was 48 years old, Hawk successfully landed a “900.” It was 17 years to the day since he has done it for the first time back in 1999.

Google Family Link arrives for all Chromebooks, brings a suite of parental control options

With technology ingrained in every facet of our lives, or so it seems, parenting has come with a new set of challenges on top of the ones that were already there. Managing your children's screen time is one of them, and Google is here to help you with that — Family Link is rolling out to Chromebooks on the stable channel (i.e. most of them). Previously in the beta track, Family Link is Google's attempt to help parents successfully manage their kids' technology usage. It's been on Android for a little while now, but with the prevalence of Chrome OS in the classroom, the move to Google's desktop operating system wasn't too much of a stretch. Much like its mobile counterpart, parents can set usage time limits and even bedtimes, adjusted to their family's specific needs. Family Link also allows for site whitelisting and blacklisting, helping make sure your kids stay on the right track. This also extends to what apps they can download from the Play Store, what videos they can see on YouTube Kids, and which books they can read on Play Books. Worried about in-app purchases? Family Link lets you control that, too, and even hide certain apps at will. There are a lot of options that Family Link offers parents. It's funny that, as you get older, you start to notice how fast the times change. Even though I grew up with computers, the internet, and was still in middle school when we started to see the dawn of smartphones, being a kid now is drastically different nowadays than it was for me. While determining how long a child uses a computer or phone remains exclusively to the parents' discretion, having an extra option to help monitor and regulate activity isn't necessarily a bad thing.

Could Apple's Services Business Hit a Wall Next Year?

Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) has made incredible progress growing its services business in recent years. For the most part, investors are still overly focused on iPhone unit sales, but the Mac maker has been trying its best to change the narrative. However, the services business could potentially hit a wall next year, with growth slowing as the business gets bigger. It's always harder to post meaningful growth figures off of a larger base. Here's the latest word on the Street. Risks to the services business Macquarie analyst Ben Schachter put out a research note this week, expressing concerns that crucial parts of the services business will slow in 2019. Specifically, Schachter thinks that licensing, the App Store, and Apple Care will decelerate significantly. While other services like Apple Music, iCloud, and Apple Pay are still growing at a respectable clip, those gains are unlikely to offset a slowdown in other parts of the business. The Asia-Pacific market represented approximately 60% of App Store spending last year, according to Schachter's estimates, but that spending could slow amid China's crackdown on video games over concerns that video games can be addictive. With nearly 600 million gamers, China is the largest video game market, and the shifting regulatory landscape is creating uncertainty for gaming platforms, including Apple's. Gaming represents a massive 75% of overall App Store spending, according to App Annie, with Asia-Pacific accounting for about two-thirds of global iOS gaming spending. There are also concerns that Apple may need to revamp its commission structure for the App Store. The company's 30% cut has long been a source of ire among third-party developers and publishers building their own businesses in the App Store, and Apple made an important concession a couple years ago by reducing its commission to 15% after the first year for long-term subscriptions. Over time, pressure to reduce these fees has only grown, with disgruntled developers (and rivals) often complaining to regulators that the fees are anti-competitive. Notably, Schachter is not modeling for any changes to Apple's fee structure. It's unclear if or when Apple would consider reducing its cut more broadly, but doing so would naturally represent additional downside to its services business. The analyst is modeling for services revenue to grow nearly 22% in fiscal 2019, down from the 26% services growth that the Mac maker posted in fiscal 2018. For reference, here's Apple's services revenue growth on a quarterly basis: ...

Intel graphics cards release date, news and rumors

For the longest time, the best graphics cards have been an all-out war between Nvidia vs AMD. However, there have been rumors floating around for a while now that Intel is building a team of GPU talent to jump in on the action. In a marketplace where Nvidia is charging exorbitant prices for the RTX 2080 Ti and RTX 2080 and AMD is focusing on the budget market with the RX 590, we’re ready for a third party to jump into this war and spice up the market again. If Intel approaches the GPU space targeting the same audience it does with its processors — trying to dominate the high-end, it could finally give Nvidia some real competition and force them to drive prices down. Still, we don’t know what these new graphics cards are going to look like, or when we’re going to see them. We don’t even know if they’ll ever actually exist. But, that doesn’t mean we can’t do a bit of speculation. There has been enough movement out there on the Intel GPU front to pull all the information together and try to create a kind of wish list for what we’d like to see out of Intel’s GPUs. So, keep this page bookmarked, as we’ll keep it updated with any and all information that comes our way. Cut to the chase What is it? Intel’s rumored line of graphics cards When is it out? Sometime in 2020 What will it cost? No one knows yet The way we see it playing out is Intel will announce its graphics architecture at CES 2019, with enterprise cards hitting the market. Then, we could see the company holding a separate launch event for consumer graphics cards when they’re ready to hit the market, similar to what we saw with Coffee Lake Refresh. Of course, it could work the other way around — but if Intel’s own teaser video is to be believed, it’s not going to play out like that. Either way, we don’t know the exact release date for Intel’s graphics card until the company wants us to (or until the release date gets leaked, as is likely to happen). Intel graphics cards price Intel’s pricing for its graphics cards is ultimately going to boil down to what segment of the consumer market it plans to capitalize on it. We’re sure that there will be professional and datacenter GPUs that cost thousands of dollars, but we’re more interested in consumer or gaming graphics cards. ...

The Epic Games Store is the best thing that could happen to Steam

By the time The Game Awards cameras switched off on December 6th, after three hours of sternum-pounding concerts, raucous celebration and heartfelt speeches, the video game landscape had changed in a massive way. In the show's first hour, the studio behind Fortnite and the Unreal Engine launched its new digital marketplace, The Epic Games Store, and its simple gray-and-white logo became a consistent theme throughout the night. It seemed that every time a trailer for a new game faded to black, the Epic Games Store emblem was there. This is a fundamental shift for the PC gaming ecosystem, which, for more than a decade, has been dominated by Steam, Valve's digital distribution hub. "Dominated" doesn't even cover it -- for years, Steam has been the only digital games store for many players, and its power over the PC market remains unparalleled. But on December 6th, the Epic Games store encroached on Steam's crown. Epic announced the marketplace just days before, complete with the promise to give developers 88 percent of all profits generated by their game sales. Compared with Steam's long-standing policy of offering developers 70 percent, the Epic Games store immediately looked like a true threat to PC gaming's powerhouse. Its surprise launch during the Game Awards, alongside all of those shiny Epic Games store logos, played out like a well-executed flank. "I feel we'll look back on this in years to come as the start of a new era of PC gaming, and I'm proud to be a little part of it," Team Meat cofounder Tommy Refenes said. His latest game, Super Meat Boy Forever, is scheduled to hit the Epic Games store in April, and it'll be exclusive to that platform for a year. That means Steam will miss out on 365 days of potential profit for this new high-profile game. Super Meat Boy Forever isn't the only big-name indie game heading Epic's way before Steam. Hello Neighbor: Hide and Seek, Ashen and (of course) Fortnite are all live exclusively on the Epic Game store. Journey, a legendary indie game, is coming to Epic's store after six years as a PlayStation exclusive. Hades, a surprise new title from Bastion and Transistor studio Supergiant Games, launched in early access during the Game Awards without a Steam logo in sight. Supergiant chose Epic over Steam for its first-ever early-access experiment partly because the new store offers something new: a direct connection between online influencers and game developers. Epic's Support-A-Creator program allows developers to share revenue with Twitch streamers who send customers their way, starting at 5 percent of attributed sales. "I want to see streamers and content creators get their dues, considering how impactful they've become in my own discovery around games," Supergiant Games writer and designer Greg Kasavin said. ...

AMD Releases Radeon Software Adrenalin 2019 Edition: Streaming for Videos, Games, & VR

As 2018 winds down, once again it’s time for AMD’s annual major feature update for their graphics drivers, Radeon Software. Going by the unassuming title of ‘Radeon Software Adrenalin 2019 Edition’, today’s release is more of an evolution on last year’s Adrenalin Edition, bringing improvements and further integrations with AMD Link and Radeon Overlay. The headlining feature is the new capability to game stream to a mobile device or VR headset, powered by ReLive and AMD Link. AMD is also addressing highly-demanded user requests as collected on their feature voting and feedback page, now checkmarking 7 out of the top 10 requests. Additionally, Adrenalin 2019 Edition 18.12.2 also brings WattMan overclocking/undervolting profile presets, WattMan controls in AMD Link and Radeon Overlay, ReLive improvements for streamers, and ‘Radeon Advisors’, the latter which are new game/settings optimization tools for entry-level users. For those just catching up, AMD’s cadence of an annual ‘big bang’ driver update started back in 2014 with Catalyst Omega, following up with the introduction of Radeon Software in 2015 and its inaugural Crimson Edition, and subsequent yearly updates with Crimson ReLive Edition in 2016 and Adrenalin Edition in 2017. This contemporary approach has hotfixes and performance updates occur throughout the year, punctuated by large feature updates and overhauls, with an overall emphasis on user experience (UX) and quality assurance. ...

Philips finally fixes the single most annoying thing about Hue lights

I love Philips Hue lights – we have an apartment full of them. But that doesn’t mean they don’t have their annoyances, and the single biggest one was what happened during a power outage Once the power comes back on, all the lights switch themselves on – and at full brightness – no matter what state they were in before. I once had the power go out at around 3am and return a few minutes later. I learned this when I was woken by all the bedroom lights switching themselves on. The rest of the house was also ablaze with light. But the latest version of the Philips Hue app, version 3.11, fixes that. You can now configure lights to return to their previous state when power is interrupted then returns. The two mysteries with this are why it took the company so long to do it, and why this isn’t the default behavior. But hey, at least it’s here. Make sure your app is updated, then go to Settings and the new Power-on Behavior option. Inside that, you’ll be able to choose the behavior for each light. The app was updated back in October with support for Siri Shortcuts. Philips Hue is a free download from the App Store.

U.S. Republican campaign emails hacked months before election

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Email accounts for a campaign group supporting Republicans candidates running for the U.S. House of Representatives were hacked before this year’s congressional elections, according to a person familiar with the investigation. Hackers used National Republican Congressional Committee credentials to access a “small number” of email accounts at the organization, which is also known as the NRCC, said the person, who was not authorized to discuss details of the attack. NRCC spokesman Ian Prior confirmed the group was the victim of a cyberattack by an unknown party, but disputed that stolen passwords were used. “Upon learning of the intrusion, the NRCC immediately launched an internal investigation and notified the FBI, which is now investigating the matter,” Prior said. The NRCC changed the passwords at its web-based email provider and took steps to prevent similar attacks, said the person, who did not name the email provider. The hackers used techniques that make them difficult to identify and officials have yet to determine whether they were aligned with a foreign government, said a second person familiar with the case. Cybersecurity firm CrowdStrike said in a statement that the NRCC asked it in April to investigate “unauthorized access” to the group’s emails. The NRCC had previous hired CrowdStrike to protect the NRCC’s internal corporate network, which was not compromised in the incident, the company said. The news was first reported by Politico, which said the NRCC learned about the attack from a vendor who alerted the committee and its cybersecurity contractor. Senior Republican House leaders, including Speaker Paul Ryan and Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, were not informed, however, until contacted by the news site, Politico said. An FBI spokeswoman declined comment. A senior U.S. Department of Homeland Security official told Reuters on Tuesday the agency had not been informed by the NRCC or FBI of such an attack. During the most recent election cycle, the NRCC raised more than $174 million and spent most of the cash on advertisements trying to help Republicans in difficult races. Concerns about campaign security have heightened since U.S. intelligence agencies concluded last year that Russia orchestrated the hacking of Democratic officials to meddle with the 2016 presidential election. Special Counsel Robert Mueller is investigating Russia’s alleged 2016 election meddling, which Moscow denies.

The art of the G-20, by Donald Trump

President Donald Trump said his trade agreement with China was “one of the largest deals ever made.” He dubbed his new accord with Canada and Mexico the “most significant, modern and balanced trade agreement in history.” And he insisted that the world leaders he’s lambasted on the world stage had become great friends. As he crisscrossed Buenos Aires, posing for photos with dignitaries and boasting about his accomplishments, Trump left behind a trail of exaggerations meant to paper over the fractious first half of his term and rebrand himself as a globe-trotting statesman. It’s the Art of the G-20, by Donald Trump. The 45th president is writing his own rulebook on how to claim credit and respect on an international stage where many leaders have looked down on him for years. But just as his famous 1987 book counseled, Trump’s global deal-making was as much about style as substance, with grandiose talk the most important ingredient of all. The president arrived back in Washington on Sunday feeling triumphant, believing his latest international trip to be a resounding success. During his overnight flight on Air Force One, Trump seemed vindicated after dealing with a long buildup of pressure to the summit in Argentina. “It’s an incredible deal,” he told reporters of his agreement with China to temporarily pause new tariffs. “It goes down, certainly — if it happens, it goes down as one of the largest deals ever made.” White House aides had reason to be happy, too. The gaffe-prone president managed to avoid a diplomatic snafu and even canceled a Saturday news conference that could have sent the entire trip off the rails. He laid off Twitter for more than 24 hours until later Sunday afternoon, when he chimed in with good wishes for Hanukkah. But behind the veneer is a more complicated reality. His deal with President Xi Jinping of China was effectively an agreement to continue trying to agree. The president’s critics argue that the new North American trade agreement is little more than NAFTA 1.1. And behind all the smiles, many world leaders still have a strong distaste for Trump. Some hid their disdain better than others. Chancellor Angela Merkel, whom Trump once accused of “ruining Germany,” showed no signs of animosity during a Saturday bilateral meeting with the president in which he called her his “highly respected” friend in front of a crush of reporters and TV cameras. ...

US Army Awards Microsoft $480 Million Contract To Use Hololens With Soldiers

Microsoft and the US Army have announced a new contract that will see the latter using the former's mixed-reality smartglasses, Hololens, to train soliders. A bidding war between Microsoft and Magic Leap for a US Army contract to develop AR devices has been raging for quite some time now, but it has finally concluded, and the Xbox parent company has come out on top and with a fancy new contract in hand. The contract -- worth $480 million -- is specifically for the army's Integrated Visual Augmentation System (IVAS) program that will require Microsoft to develop prototype Hololens devices that will specifically aid US soldiers in "lethality, mobility, and situational awareness." "There is an operational need for the IVAS capability to regain overmatch against peer and near peer threats, as well as the need for improved training and simulation tools to provide the warfighter with the ability to train and rehearse using the same equipment utilized in actual operations," reads the program's official statment of objectives. “Augmented reality technology will provide troops with more and better information to make decisions," said a Microsoft spokesperson in a statement given to Bloomberg. "This new work extends our longstanding, trusted relationship with the Department of Defense to this new area." Basically, the goal of this program is to create a visor of sorts that can produce a HUD that has features that can help US soldiers in combat. The device would require a specific mixed reality training protocol, and aid in combat by providing information to the solider, such as their heartrate, and by allowing for things like thermal vision. According to the US Army, the program will begin to deal out a limited amount of these new headsets over a 24-month period. This period will essentially serve as a prototype/testing phase before a finished product is rolled out within the US Army by the end of 2020. As you may know, this isn't the first time the US Army has dabbled in this space. It has notable been using VR tech for quite sometime for a variety of purposes. This new contract just further indicates its intention to expand and explore the mixed reality space even more.

Mexico Swears In First Leftist President In 70 Years

President Lopez Obrador encourages Mexicans to “not to buy abroad, but to produce in Mexico what we consume.” Christopher Sherman and Maria Verza MEXICO CITY (AP) — Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador took the oath of office Saturday as Mexico’s first leftist president in over 70 years, marking a turning point in one of the world’s most radical experiments in opening markets and privatization. In his first speech to Congress, Lopez Obrador pledged “a peaceful and orderly transition, but one that is deep and radical ... because we will end the corruption and impunity that prevent Mexico’s rebirth.” Mexico long had a closed, state-dominated economy, but since entering the General Agreement on Trade and Tariffs in 1986, it has signed more free trade agreements than almost any other country, and privatized almost every corner of the economy except oil and electricity. Now, though, Lopez Obrador talks a talk not heard in Mexico since the 1960s: He wants to build more state-owned oil refineries and encourages Mexicans to “not to buy abroad, but to produce in Mexico what we consume.” Even so, Lopez Obrador has tried to send conciliatory gestures to financial markets, which have been roiled in the weeks before he took office. “I promise, and I’m a man of my word, that the investments of foreign and international investors will be safe, and we will even create conditions that will allow them to get good returns,” he said, “because in Mexico there will be honesty, rule of law, clear rules, economic growth and confidence.” But he also harkened back to his hero, ex-president Lazaro Cardenas, who nationalized the oil industry and redistributed land during his 1934-40 administration. “We are going to govern for everyone, but we are going to give preference to the most impoverished and vulnerable,” Lopez Obrador said. “For the good of all, the poor come first.’” The first foreign dignitaries that Lopez Obrador greeted were U.S. Vice President Mike Pence and Ivanka Trump. “I want to say that since July 1, the day I was elected, I have received respectful treatment from President Donald Trump”, Lopez Obrador said. But he faces a challenge with a caravan of thousands of Central American migrants camped out on the border, which Trump had threatened to close to keep them out. Lopez Obrador said he wanted to reach an agreement with the governments and companies in the U.S. and Canada to develop Central America and southern Mexico, so people wouldn’t have to migrate — “to address in that way, and not with coercive measures, the migration phenomenon.” That appeared to be an acknowledgment that Mexico is prepared to house migrants waiting to make asylum claims in the United States in exchange for U.S. development aid. ...
