Why Apple Chose Austin, Seattle and Culver City for Its New Jobs Push

WSJ.com: WSJD - Technology

The mix of software and services and higher prices are key to Apple's effort to offset slowing iPhone unit sales. Though the company reported record annual revenue on Nov. 1 due to higher iPhone prices, it also said it would stop reporting the number of iPhones sold--a metric that has been stagnant lately--a decision that many analysts interpreted as signaling the iPhone's growth years are in the past. Apple's stock price has declined by nearly a quarter since then. While the push beyond its Silicon Valley home could aid those efforts, it also will test a highly centralized company that has thrived due to a concentrated workforce located near its Cupertino, Calif., headquarters, analysts said. "This idea of'Designed in Cupertino' has really been the ethos of Apple, and now you're going to have AI and services designed outside Cupertino," said Gene Munster, managing partner at investment and research firm Loup Ventures.


Donald Trump denies report about him using iPhones in tweet sent from an iPhone

The Independent - Tech

Donald Trump has said he "seldom" uses his iPhone in one of a series of tweets sent from an iPhone. Responding to an article that alleged he could be accidentally divulging state secrets by chatting about them on his own insecure smartphones, he said that he only uses government-issued phones, that he "seldom" uses them anyway and that the report was too false for him to have time to correct. "The so-called experts on Trump over at the New York Times wrote a long and boring article on my cellphone usage that is so incorrect I do not have time here to correct it," he posted on Twitter.

Using your phone while doing other things makes your life more miserable, study finds

The Independent - Tech

People who check their phones while eating or spending time with their friends are less likely to enjoy themselves, a study has found. Researchers at the University of British Columbia in Canada found that mobile phone use is making people more distracted, distant and drained as a result of its pervasiveness in our modern lives. Even having a mobile phone within easy access during a meal is enough to make diners not enjoy the experience as much as those who keep their devices out of reach while they eat.

Samsung Galaxy S7 hack: How to protect your phone from hacking

The Independent - Tech

A microchip security flaw has put tens of millions of Samsung Galaxy S7 smartphones at risk to hackers, prompting cyber security experts to issue advice to owners on how best to protect their device. The Meltdown vulnerability, first uncovered by researchers earlier this year, affects computers, smartphones and other smart devices but was initially thought to not affect Samsung Galaxy phones. Meltdown can be exploited by hackers to gain access to a person's private information, including banking details and passwords.

The Independent - Tech

Google has released the ninth edition of its mobile operating system, with a range of features aimed at providing a more personalised experience for smartphone users.

Hearing aids are getting better with Bluetooth and apps just as more Americans need them

USATODAY - Tech Top Stories

Interactive options, including support for apps, help listeners shape their listening experience. Nearly 50 million Americans have lost at least some of their hearing. A new generation of hearing aids employs technology like Bluetooth and pairs with digital assistants to make them more useful at home and at work. "Because people are living and working longer, the need for hearing aids is actually on the rise," says Dr. Stephen Kirsch, an audiologist in Santa Monica, Calif.. "Computer chip technology has greatly improved, providing better audibility but not necessarily better intelligibility – yet – but there are other advancements, too." Technology like hearing aids could help about 29 million Americans, says the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders.

The Independent - Tech

The first legitimate-looking picture of Google's highly anticipated upcoming flagship smartphone has leaked. The Pixel is one of the best handsets on the market, and is considered by many to have the most impressive camera capabilities of any smartphone. Its successor appears to be at least partly inspired by the Samsung Galaxy S8 and HTC U11 – two handsets it will go head-to-head with when it launches later this year.

Upfront Ventures, L.A. County's biggest venture capital firm, just got bigger

Los Angeles Times

Los Angeles County's most prominent start-up investor just got bigger. Upfront Ventures closed June with the announcement of a $400-million investment fund that it plans to spend on dozens of start-ups in the next couple of years. It's believed to be Los Angeles County's largest-ever venture capital fund by raw number, though Upfront Ventures' $390-million investment fund in 2000 comes out far on top when adjusted for inflation. Still, it beats the $280 million that Upfront Ventures picked up at the end of 2014. Mark Suster, managing partner at the firm, declined to provide specifics about the returns that prior funds have generated.
