Consumer Demand for connected home products slows

Home automation was gaining attention and experiencing robust growth in 2014; however a new report by Argus Insights (www.argusinsights.com) reveals that sector is quickly losing steam.

The research group's data shows that as of May 2015 consumer demand for connected home devices such as thermostats, lightbulbs, locks, sensors and cameras experienced its first drop below the level of a year ago, a sign that consumer interest is stagnating.

"Based on our review of consumer interest, the state of home automation in 2015 is not looking good for anyone who sells or makes these devices," says John Feland, CEO and founder, Argus Insights. "Even though Google and Samsung made big purchases in this space by buying Nest thermostats, Dropcam and the suite of SmartThings products demand is stagnating.  It is obvious that the early adopters have bought what they want and other consumers are expressing...

Gartner demand for enterprise mobile apps to outstrip...

By the end of 2017, market demand for mobile app development services will grow at least five times faster than internal IT organizations' capacity to deliver them, according to Gartner, Inc. (www.gartner.com).

The research group forecasts mobile phone sales will reach 2.1 billion units by 2019, which will fuel demand for apps in the enterprise that meet the high performance and usability of consumer apps. Gartner principal research analyst Adrian Leow says enterprises find it a challenge to rapidly develop, deploy and maintain mobile apps to meet increasing demand, as it is exceedingly difficult and costly to hire developers with good mobile skills.

"Organizations increasingly find it difficult to be proactive against competitive pressures, which is resulting in their mobile apps becoming tactical, rather than strategic," he adds. "We're seeing demand for mobile apps outstrip available development capacity...

Consumer ability to access the internet and connected services while in the car remains strong, making driving or parking tasks easier. While interest is especially high for services which provide traffic updates, weather updates, open parking spaces, and navigation instructions, interest in social media functionality remains low.

A new report from Automotive Consumer Insights group (ACI) at Strategy Analytics (www.strategyanalytics.com), surveyed consumers in the US, Western Europe, and China regarding their interest in and preferred payment models for in-vehicle connectivity and connected services. Consumers remained interested in services which provided drive-relevant information; with access to in-vehicle connectivity playing an increasingly important role in the purchase decision of a vehicle, across all demographics.

Limelight Networks (www.limelight.com), which specializes in digital content delivery, has released new data that shows consumers are nearly always plugged in and are increasingly updating and adding content to their phones and other connected devices.

In addition, the research shows that consumers, especially Millennials, expect and demand a seamless and consistent experience when downloading digital content. Other findings illustrate the hunger for consuming digital content on smart phones, tablets, computers and gaming consoles. Forty nine percent of Millennials report that they are more likely to download content than just one year ago, versus 43% of all respondents. However, 75% of those surveyed currently find downloading content frustrating, especially when it takes too long to complete, gets interrupted, or simply doesn’t work.

A recent study from the In-vehicle UX group at Strategy Analytics (www.strategyanalytics.com) surveying consumers in the US and Western Europe has confirmed low interest in wearables for automotive use-cases.

While younger males and luxury car owners appeared to be most interested in the US, strong interest was below 20% across all Western European segments. Despite the market for wearables (and in particular smartwatches) poised for strong growth, wearables in automotive remain arguably a solution in search of a problem.

Investigating two key use cases for wearables in the car - i) detecting and monitoring a driver’s medical condition (i.e. a supplementary heart rate monitor); and ii) remote functionality, (such as remote start or automatic parking) – Strategy Analytics noted that interest in the use of wearables for on-board heart rate monitors was below 45% for both regions.

A new report from 451 Research (www.451research.com), an information technology research and advisory company, says cellular Internet of Things (IoT) and machine to machine (M2M) connections will increase nearly fourfold globally from 252 million in 2014 to 908 million in 2019. A monumental increase in active cellular IoT/M2M connections will be driven by a number of key factors, according to 451 Research.

First, hardware and bandwidth costs have dropped to a point where nearly every enterprise can reap the benefits of virtualizing the physical world. Second, cloud-based middleware and data platforms are making it easier to securely generate insights from machine data at greater scale than ever before possible. Last, the buzz around this topic is generating overall awareness of the transformational potential of IoT/M2M in terms of return-on-investment, competitiveness and support of completely new business...

Head mounted display market growing at 49% CAGR to 2019

The head mounted display market (HMD) will grow at a compound annual growth rate [CAGR} through 2019, according to ReportsnReports (www.reportsnreports.com).

Core virtual reality works well with the interactive world of games as currently no technology can give a fully immersive, 360 degree 3D experience, says the research group. Cost also has a considerable impact on the adoption of HMDs. Currently, the industrial sector is witnessing high adoption of these devices, but adoption among individual consumers is difficult unless low-cost micro displays are integrated in this technology to bring down their overall price, says ReportsnReports.

However, demand for Light-weight HMDs and need for enhanced safety and convenience are major head mounted display market growth drivers. Customization of HMDs and integration of HMDs in multiple tasks are market challenges while VR gaming and possibility of...

New data from Parks Associates (www.parksassociates.com) finds global OTT [over-the-top] video service subscription revenues will increase from nearly US$9 billion in 2014 to over $19 billion in 2019.

Currently, 57% of U.S. broadband households subscribe to an OTT video service. Among European broadband households, 57% in the U.K., 29% in Spain, and 24% in Germany subscribe to an OTT service. The research group also finds that in 2015, approximately 7% of all U.S. households, or 8.4 million households, subscribe to broadband and at least one OTT video service but do not subscribe to pay TV.

This figure includes consumers who have discontinued pay-TV service and those who have never subscribed to pay TV. In other Western nations, this same figure is approximately 4% or less among all households. Operators are introducing their own OTT services to appeal to consumers who are not currently...

The growth of sensor-based data combined with advanced algorithms and artificial intelligence (AI) are enabling smart machines to make increasingly significant business decisions over which humans have decreasing control, according to Gartner, Inc. (www.gartner.com).

"As smart machines become increasingly capable, they will become viable alternatives to human workers under certain circumstances, which will lead to significant repercussions for the business and thus for CIOs," says Stephen Prentice, vice president and Gartner Fellow. "In the 2015 Gartner CEO and business leader survey, opinions were equally divided on this issue and indicate that business leaders are starting to take notice of the advances being made and more readily acknowledge that the threat to knowledge work is real."

The research group says the growth will be fueled by three key markets: electronics manufacturers and electronics manufacturing services companies, small-to-medium manufacturers, and manufacturers seeking robotic solutions optimized to support agile production methodologies.

"Collaborative robotic systems, such as ABB’s YuMi and Gomtec/Roberta platforms, Rethink Robotics’ Baxter and Sawyer, Universal Robots (Teradyne) UR family of robots, KUKA’s LBR iiwa and Kawada Industries’ Nextage, were developed in response to a number of pressing social drivers and businesses imperatives, and aided by ongoing technological innovation and dropping prices for powerful enabling...

The Monk Magnet Wallet Case ($35) from Sewell Direct is a magnetic removable folio case for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Like a few other cases we've seen, Monk Magnet Wallet Case lets users remove the phone from the wallet folio for use — when removed, it sits inside a faux-leather backed shell case (the folio is faux-leather, as well). The magnetic attachment makes installation and removal simple. Monk Magnet Wallet Case has three card slots and a pocket for cash. As is the norm with most folio cases, Monk Magnet Wallet Case doesn't provide much protection, especially when the phone is used while solely in the shell.{/exp:char_limit}

olloclip taps Kickstarter for olloclip Studio

Rather than just an accessory lens kit, olloclip Studio builds on the current line of accessory lenses and the ollocase with an integrated system consisting of a case, mounts, cold shoes, and lenses.

Eddy Cue confirmed late last night that a new iOS 9 seed is coming to developers next week with support for Apple Music, but since the service launched yesterday, users have discovered that there are a few ways to use certain aspects of it while on iOS 9.

First, if you are running iOS 9, Siri commands work to access some of the features of Apple Music. For instance, you can ask Siri to add an album that you didn’t previously have to your library and the content...

See, this is why Aaron Paul is nifty.

Paul, the actor best known for his role as “Breaking Bad” character Jesse Pinkman, posted an interesting challenge yesterday via Twitter: ask Siri to divide zero by zero and witness the result.

It only takes a few seconds, but you’ll probably like the result, which is both geeky and funny.

It’s unknown as to how Paul first heard of the easter egg.

If you have a chance, give it a try today and let us know what you make of it in the comments.

A newer Qualcomm LTE chip in Apple’s upcoming iPhone will be able to deliver “up to twice the theoretical LTE download speeds” compared to the current iPhones, according to 9to5Mac. Qualcomm’s MDM9635M chip is capable of offering 300 Mbps download speeds, as compared to the current 150 Mbps download speeds found in the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Upload speeds will be the same, however (50 Mbps), and the report notes real world…

Apple releases iTunes 12.2 update

The mighty iTunes received an update yesterday.

And it possesses a new icon to be somewhat confused by.

Late Tuesday, Apple released iTunes 12.2. The new version of the software, a 232.8 megabyte download, adds support for the Apple Music streaming service, complete with Beats 1 and Apple Radio as well.

iTunes 12.2 can be downloaded and installed through OS X’s Software Update or App Store features and requires an Intel processing running OS X 10.7.5 or later to run while its iTunes Extras kit requires OS X 10.9.3 or later to install and run.

If you’ve tried the new version of iTunes and have any feedback to offer, please let us know in the comments.

IMAGE VIA ARS TECHnICA

Yesterday, Apple released Mac OS X 10.10.4, providing a number of bug fixes and subtle improvements to the currently shipping version of the desktop operating system. According to Ars Technica, one of those improvements is the addition of support for TRIM on third-party solid state drives (SSDs)

TRIM isn't something most users worry about; it's a system-level command that provides communication between the operating system and SSD regarding unused areas of the drive that are ready for erasure and overwriting. Without TRIM, drives can become much slower as more data is added to the device. OS X has...

'iPhone 6s' to Support Faster Download Speeds...

Following a report yesterday that the next-generation "iPhone 6s" will appear essentially identical to the current lineup of iPhones with a few minor internal differences, an unnamed source has shared new photos of logic board from the device with 9to5Mac, revealing an updated Qualcomm LTE chip offering faster LTE speeds and greater energy efficiency.

Specifically, the next iPhone will carry a Qualcomm MDM9635M chip -- also referred to as the "9X35" Gobi modem platform -- and it aims to give the iPhone 6s a significant increase in performance over the current 9X25 used in the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

For everyday users, this gives the potential for significant increases in LTE network performance with download speeds of up to 300 Mbps, twice that of the current iPhone line. Real-world...

iPods in Unreleased Colors Spotted in iTunes 12.2

Following the release of iTunes 12.2 with Apple Music support yesterday, one MacRumors user has discovered graphics depicting iPods in colors not currently offered by Apple. The composite image of an iPod touch, nano, and shuffle is shown when setting up or restoring an iPod in iTunes.

The new colors include a darker blue for the iPod touch, a new gold or beige color for the iPod nano, and a brighter pink color for the iPod shuffle.

Apple has not updated its iPod color lineup in several years, most recently shifting the previous "slate" color to "space gray" back in 2013. Apple has typically updated its iPod lineup during the month of September, although it is unclear whether these new colors are actually in the works and what their release timeframe might be.

Getting to mess around with the app for the first time, Mashable, Re/code, The Loop and Rolling Stone came away with largely positive reactions to Apple's first foray into the music streaming game, although the large consensus hanging over it all was a tentative negativity regarding the app's overwhelming amount of content and the somewhat confusing UI that is used to navigate it all.

First off, Mashable noted the big positive of the Apple Music service: for those baked into the Apple ecosystem it offers one library, combining purchases from...

Apple previously only replaced defective batteries under the old terms of the AppleCare Protection Plan for Mac, but a support page updated today now outlines that the company will also replace a MacBook's battery at no charge if it retains less than 80% of its original capacity. If the notebook is not covered by AppleCare, replacing the battery requires paying an out-of-warranty service charge ranging between $129 and $199.

A new report by DisplayMate out today, however, shows just how much lower reflectivity and higher contrast there is on the Apple Watch Sport's Ion-X glass compared to the higher-end Apple Watch models with sapphire.

As DisplayMate points out, the two models have identical OLED displays internally, but thanks to the different outer coverings, the different models react uniquely in bright light situations. In summary, the site found that the Apple Watch with sapphire crystal display reflects 74 percent more ambient light than the Ion-X glass of the Sport model. The two displays behave almost identically in dark environments given the low...

While every new iPhone model released has gone on to outsell its predecessor, dating back to the iPhone 3G outselling the original iPhone, the overwhelming success of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus has created some skepticism about whether Apple will be able to continue that trend in the future.

The 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have been popular among consumers because of their larger screens, a long-awaited hardware feature that was previously limited to Android-based smartphones and other devices. The new iPhones are also slimmer and feature faster A8 processors and improved iSight cameras.

Nevertheless, a new survey from RBC Capital Markets suggests the so-called "iPhone 6s" could actually be more popular than the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The research firm expects positive year-over-year growth in the December quarter, claiming that carrier contracts are ultimately the deciding factor in a customer's upgrade cycle."While there has been...

Compliance is no longer about email alone. It has extended into realms that include social media, instant messaging, and collaboration platforms, to name just a few.

When thinking of compliance, organizations must now account for all of these new communication tools that are frequently used by their employees.

Today, Office 365 helps customers stay compliant with an archiving solution that covers email, documents in SharePoint and OneDrive for Business, and Skype for Business meetings and conversations.

Announcing archiving for non-Microsoft data in...

Compliance is no longer about email alone. It has extended into realms that include social media, instant messaging, and collaboration platforms, to name just a few. In just a few years, these communication channels have become so prevalent that entire industries have spun up around them. Governance and regulatory policies have been updated to reflect the growing influence of these new mediums. When thinking of compliance, organizations must now account for all of these new communication tools that are frequently used by their employees.

Today, Office 365 helps customers stay compliant with an archiving solution that covers email, documents in SharePoint and OneDrive for Business, and Skype for Business meetings and conversations. But, our customers require and have asked for more—they want Office 365 to provide the same rich archiving capabilities over non-Microsoft data sources, such as social and messaging data, as well.

To accommodate customers who require...

Get started on PowerShell for Office 365

Starting today, PowerShell for Office 365, a new website designed to help Office 365 IT administrators get started on Windows PowerShell for Office 365 is now live. Announced at Microsoft Ignite, this website is targeted at IT administrators with little to no experience with Windows PowerShell. The website is focused on simple scenarios that are focused entirely for Office 365 administration.

Learning PowerShell for Office 365 makes the job of IT admins easier and more efficient. For example, say your company goes through a large reorganization where departments change names and move to different management. If you are dealing with a few changes and a few people, the Office 365 Admin Center can quickly be used to make the changes. However, consider the task at hand if the changes involved hundreds or even a thousand users. While the Office 365 Admin Center is more than capable of making all the changes, the amount of work and the...

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.

The video showcases all the native controls and gives an overview of Xojo's support for building iOS apps. Building native iOS apps with Xojo is the same as building a web or desktop app as you do today. You can view the video at http://tinyurl.com/nvexpk7 .

Developers can use the Integrated Development Environment (IDE) of Xojo for free, and will only need to purchase a license once they want to build a distributable version of their application. Licenses are purchased per target platform, including Web, Desktop, Database, Console, and Xojo Pro, which is a bundle license that includes all deployment licenses plus an added...

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.
