A nice spot that is about how the device can be used to cherish family memories with a subtle overtone of “our devices are for content creation”.
Brilliant! This sounds pretty well designed.
The patent describes a system that not only siloes data on the Touch ID “enclave” section of the A7 processor, but that also encrypts the fingerprint maps registered on the device to make it that much more difficult for any thieves to even attempt to pull the data off in any kind of usable form. The enclave is a one-way street, too: the system can check new fingerprints against the stored ones, but there’s no way to check or call up the stored fingerprints at all for external examination once they’re registered.
It is simply amazing to see the process and automation in place to assemble the new Mac Pro.
A great piece that is deeper than just “what did the Los Angeles School District’s IT team do wrong”. It exposes about how LA schools are creating the wrong culture and not helping the students develop into responsible individuals.
Quite honestly, I kinda like it. I really like the toolbar, notification center, and control center implementation.
Having a passcode is a mandatory Touch ID requirement. You can’t choose to only use Touch ID to unlock your device. In the event that your fingerprint isn’t recognized, you can always manually type in your passcode.
Apple took over a Sweden based firm Algo Trim, specializing in the algorithm for tasks like compressing images, video, and software.
Sounds promising. The article also notes that Alto Trim is leveraged by Google to compress the size of software updates that are pushed through to devices.
AlgoTrim has various product offerings for compression and decompression tasks for processing video in real time.
That would come in handy for when an iPhone captures 120fps HD video (slow motion playback ability). Efficiency in the iPhones real-time video compression enables the user to be able to shoot and store more video.
In addition to the benefits this would have for iPhone captures, this would indeed be helpful for Apple’s envisioned Streaming TV experience, whatever that may be.
