A growing roster of smart home services and device providers are using home security monitoring as a beachhead to introduce home automation services. In the key U.S. market, a bellwether for developed markets around the world, some 15 million more U.S. homes will invest in new connected home security services in the next 5 years, according to ABI Research (www.abiresearch.com).

However, it will not be the sole preserve of traditional professionally monitored home security providers.

Worldwide personal and entry-level storage (PELS) shipments declined by -6.4% year over year and -13.6% sequentially, finishing the first quarter of 2015 (1Q15) with 17.6 million units, according to the International Data Corporation (www.idc.om). Shipment values declined along with unit shipments, down -11.6% from a year ago to U$1.5 billion, according to the research group.

"Broadly speaking, the size of this market has changed little over the past two and a half years. This is partly due to competition from public cloud offerings and partly due to a fundamental shift of media consumption preferences," says Jingwen Li, research analyst, Storage Systems, IDC. "It's important to note, however, that there are still untapped growth opportunities within this market. Personal and entry level NAS, for example, would benefit greatly from an increased level of marketing programs focused on building awareness."

Mobile data traffic, generated by smart phones, feature phones and tablets will approach almost 197,000 PB (Petabytes) by 2019, equivalent to over 10 billion Blu-ray movies, according to Juniper Research (www.juniperrsearch.com).

However, the research group found that only 41% of the data generated by these devices will be carried over cellular networks by 2019, with the majority of mobile data traffic offloaded to Wi-Fi networks. Juniper Research estimates that the average monthly data usage by smartphone and tablet users will double over the next four years. The daily media consumption by mobile users will continue to rise, bolstered by the rise in 4G adoption and factors such as HD video usage.

Why is Verizon buying AOL? This is about reinventing...

The traditional telecom business has become a challenging environment to find growth and sustain profits. Beyond subscriber saturation (no one new to sell things to), this situation is exacerbated by pricing wars for traditional services (driven by T-Mobile/Sprint) and encroachment from OTT players into traditional communication services (Skype/WhatsApp). 

New revenue growth initiatives must be developed for the future. Verizon buying AOL is one such example of how telecom operators will seek to transform themselves and take different positions higher up the stack in the digital ecosystem, according to 451 Research (www.451research.com).  

AOL has seen its fortunes shift (as in steady revenue growth) in the past couple of years on the back of its programmatic advertising platform. Programmatic advertising describes a highly automated platform for buying, placing and optimizing media inventory to...

Why accessibility matters

Ideally, people with a variety of abilities should be able to access the same mainstream technology wherever possible. Companies such as Apple work hard to make their devices and software accessible irrespective of whether the user may have hearing difficulties, vision problems, fine-motor challenges, or, for that matter, small or large hands, thick or thin fingers, or whether they are left or right handed, young or old. They want their products to be usable by the widest possible range of people. They don’t design a special iPad for children with autism, or a different watch for left handed people. Yet, they invest a lot of effort in making sure that Apple Watch works well for left and right handed people and that iPads have features that work well for kids with autism without sacrificing their utility for, for example, blind users. They aim for universal design. Ease of use, simplicity, and refinement all contribute to making the products better for everyone.

Promotional Apple II Video with Steve Jobs, Steve...

Check out this Apple II promotional video circa 1984. Built on still images, it features voiceovers from Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak, and Paul Terrell, who owned the Byte Shop. The voiceover tells the story of Apple I and Apple II, and includes all manner of tidbits from Apple lore. Highlights for me include Mr. Terrell's recollection of a parts company asking if the two Steves really had an order for 50 Apple I computers, Steve Jobs talking about Woz's ability to reduce components, and several comments about the need for someone to make fully assembled computers. It also features an atrocious song with the lyrics, "Apple II forever and ever/bringing the rainbows to you." It was posted to YouTube in April 2011 by Blake Patterson, who penned a blog post on this and several other Apple promo videos. I hadn't seen it before, and neither had Harry McCracken, who posted something about it on Thursday at FastCompany. It's very interesting, so check it out.

United States Department of Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx recently called for accelerating the timetable to develop technology allowing communication between cars and highway infrastructures. Foxx directed the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration 1) to submit its proposal to require vehicle-to-vehicle communication in new vehicles by the end of this year rather than in 2016; and 2) to accelerate necessary testing to ensure that V2V and vehicle-to-infrastructure transmissions will be free from radio interference.

How NSA exploits mobile app stores from Google,...

In 2011 and 2012, the NSA and the communications intelligence agencies of its “Five Eyes” allies developed and tested a set of add-ons to their shared Internet surveillance capability that could identify and target communications between mobile devices and popular mobile app stores—including those of Google and Samsung.

Notice two words not mentioned anywhere in this story? “Apple” and “iOS.”

Do you need to care if Apple changes its system font...

9to5Mac reported yesterday that Apple may switch out the system font used in OS X and iOS from Helvetica Neue to San Francisco, the font it developed in-house for the Apple Watch. And if you listen very carefully, that faint background noise you can just discern on the edge of your hearing is half the Apple community bellowing denunciations that this is a stupid idea, and half yelling that OS X 10.11 and iOS 9 (when the switch is rumored to happen) can’t come soon enough.

Firefox may be waning in popularity as a desktop browser, but development team Mozilla is pushing ahead to release a version of the software for iOS devices. In a new survey discovered by TechCrunch, the company reveals that it’s currently searching for people who can beta test the upcoming app.

Just about anyone can sign up for the beta, though Mozilla hasn’t made it clear how many people will be chosen, or when the selection process will start. Users interested in testing will need to answer a few basic questions about the types of devices they own and their proficiency with iOS software.

Once you’ve answered all of the questions and supplied an email address, the only thing left to do is wait and see if you’ve been chosen.

In benchmark testing conducted by French site MacGeneration [Google Translate], the entry-level 2.2GHz 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro with 16GB RAM and 256GB of storage lived up to Apple's claims, demonstrating impressive read/write speeds that topped out at 2GB/s and 1.25GB/s...

In a post covering information on future iPad upgrades, 9to5Mac confirms split-screen multitasking is still in the works and on schedule to be released as part of iOS 9.

Split-screen multitasking will display two apps side-by-side on the iPad's screen or two views of the same app, allowing users to see multiple documents in Pages at the same time, for example. As was first discovered in code buried within iOS 8, apps will be able to be arranged in multiple...

Apple is planning a new "Home" app that would enable users to wirelessly discover, securely manage and control HomeKit-based accessories using an iOS device, according to 9to5Mac. The report also reiterates that the Apple TV would serve as a hub for all HomeKit connected devices.

The report claims that Home could be introduced alongside iOS 9 at Apple's upcoming Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco next month, although the app may not be finalized in time and could remain limited to internal usage by employees only.

Though iOS 9 and OS X 10.11 are set to debut in three weeks at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference, we've heard little detail on the content Apple might include in the new operating system updates. Neither operating system is expected to get a major visual overhaul, but there may be one significant design change for both iOS and OS X -- a new system font.

Apple has plans to use the new San Francisco font that was introduced with the Apple Watch to replace the Helvetica Neue font used in iOS 7/iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite, according to a report from 9to5Mac. The font will be used for menu items, app names, and more, throughout the operating systems.

Ever since switching to particularly thin weights of Helvetica Neue in iOS 7, Apple has been chastised for using a font that emphasizes clean lines over readability, and San Francisco is intended to...

Apple Watch Demand Flattening as 42mm Models Estimated t...

KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo issued a note to investors today that claims Apple Watch demand may be slowing down, resulting in shipment forecasts being revised down by 20% to 30% to 5-6 million units in the third quarter.

Kuo expects total Apple Watch shipments to fall within the 15 million range for the 2015 fiscal year, lower than the consensus of 20-30 million units, but remains upbeat about the Apple Watch and long-term wearable trends.

KGI Securities conducted a survey that reveals most Apple Watch orders are scheduled to ship in June, and concludes that 2Q15 production output is likely sufficient for the orders placed so far. Kuo also notes that over 80% of orders are for larger 42mm models, implying a male-dominated customer mix based on the assumption that 42mm and 38mm watches are mainly purchased by men and women respectively. "We have learned that 42mm Apple Watch accounts for 60-70% of production. However, the shipping times of 38mm models are...

  2. Click on the crown: Access your your home screen. You can control the home screen like this: Manage Apps On The Apple Watch.
  3. Double-click on the crown: Go back to your last app.

We are pleased to announce an update to Outlook.com that lets you make the most of the moments that matter to you—featuring a refined inbox, new ways to collaborate, an upgraded calendar and much more. This update is rolling out today, in Preview, to a small group of customers and is the first of many innovations coming as we upgrade Outlook.com to a new Office 365-based infrastructure.  These new features will be made available to a broader audience through an opt-in program in the coming weeks.

Let’s take a look at what’s new.

Familiar, but refined inbox

Your inbox is part of your daily routine. It’s where you keep in touch with family and friends, check the shipping status of packages and find deals from your favorite companies. These new inbox features are aimed at creating a richer and more engaging inbox, while maintaining the same look and feel you love. Here’s what’s new:

Apple Watch Gestures

Here’s a list of gestures you need to know on the Apple Watch:

  1. Lift your wrist to show the display: This is probably the easiest of the gestures. Once you’ve put on the watch, simply lift your wrist and you’ll see the display. You’re not gesturing, but you are. Just not on the face of the watch. But many of these are clicking places anyway…
  2. Click on the crown: Access your your home screen. You can control the home screen like this: Manage Apps On The Apple Watch.
  3. Double-click on the crown: Go back to your last app.
  4. Click on the side button: No matter where you are, the side button will take you to your friends list. Customize this list so your top 10 contacts can receive things like, I don’t know, your creepy heartbeat.
  5. Double-click the side button to open Apple Pay: Clicking the side button opened your address book. But double-clicking opens Apple’s system...

Office 365—monthly Dev Digest for May

This month’s Office 365 Dev Digest was written by Jeremy Thake, technical product manager for the Office 365 Dev team.

Welcome to the third edition of Dev Digest, designed to help you—the Office 365 developer—keep-up-to date with what’s new in Office 365 development. We have a huge amount of news to share with you this month based on all the announcements that were made at Build 2015 in San Francisco.

For me, the most exciting announcements were the:

  • Support for Office add-ins in Excel for iPad (and very soon Word and PowerPoint) and Word, PowerPoint and Excel Online.
  • New Office 365 Unified API endpoint preview and add-in Commands inside Outlook 2016 Preview.
  • Office 365 Store support for web applications in the Users’ My Apps page.

Today’s post was written by Juliet Wei, senior product marketing manager for the Yammer team.

OneDrive for Business introduces new data loss...

The ability to take OneDrive for Business files offline, apply changes and then sync those changes back is fundamental to helping people manage their files effectively across devices.

Many organizations want to ensure their users are only able to sync files to managed- or domain-joined PC’s thereby limiting data leakage possibilities on unmanaged home and personal computers. Today we’re excited to announce that we’re releasing this capability for OneDrive for Business administrators! This complements the other data loss prevention investments we’re making right across Office 365.

Video showcases iOS app built with Xojo

Xojo Inc., the company formerly known as Real Software, has posted a video of an iOS app that was built with Xojo. Xojo is an object-oriented, cross-platform software development tool that enables developers to create software for OS X, Windows, Linux, the web and mobile.

A look at SkySafari for iOS, Mac OS X and 2012 DA14

This Friday, Feb. 15, a 180,000-ton asteroid with the thrilling name of "2012 DA14" will fly past the Earth. Don't worry, we're not talking a "Deep Impact" scenario. Which is good, right? And you can follow the asteroid using Apple devices.

The 50-meter space rock will come within 17,200 miles of earth -- that's closer than our orbiting geosynchronous communication satellites. Although we don't have to worry about a collision, the passage of 2012 DA14 is a record close approach to the Earth for an object of this size.

Southern Stars has released update to its SkySafari Plus and Pro apps for iOS, Mac OS X, and Android to let you track 2012 DA14. If you want to track the asteroid you'll want the updated apps. Why? Because the Earth's gravity affects the asteroid's orbit so severely, most desktop planetarium programs -- and all other mobile apps -- will completely fail to predict the asteroid's position correctly, says Southern Stars founder Tim DeBenedictis.
