Apple的2018年第四季度业绩

在上周的活动中,并潜入测试新的iPad专业版MacBook Air,我没时间评论Apple的季度业绩让我们赶上来吧。这是Apple的新闻稿,其中包括指向其数据摘要的链接长话短说,与去年同期相比:

  • iPad单位销量和收入有所下降。

  • Mac部门销售额下降不到2%,但收入增长超过3% - 因此大部分持平。

  • iPhone单位销售持平,但收入增长高达29%iPhone X(现在是XS)很受欢迎。

  • 服务和“其他产品”也分别增长了17%和31%我认为这意味着AirPods和Apple Watch正在疯狂增长我到处都是轶事观察。

杰森斯内尔,像往常一样,有超过24个优秀的图表可视化Apple在Six Colors的结果我将只复制一个,第一个:

饼图按类别显示Apple季度收入。

我看这个,我想一件事:他妈的是的,Macintosh

For all the fretting for the future of the Mac — the widely held notion that Apple wants everyone to move from the Mac to iPad, that these totally shitty Marzipan apps in Mojave are the future, that the Mac is “legacy” — here is some cold, hard, financial proof that the Mac is doing as well as ever在收入方面,Mac不仅远远领先于iPad,而且非常惊人,它相当于iPhone收入的五分之一。

没有iPhone,Mac和iPad的单位销售数字

最大的惊喜是首席财务官Luca Maestri的宣布在他准备好的电话会议上Apple将不再宣布iPhone,Mac和iPad的单位销售:

Third, starting with the December quarter we will no longer be providing unit sales data for iPhone, iPad, and MacAs we have stated many times, our objective is to make great products and services that enrich people’s lives, and to provide an unparalleled customer experience so that our users are highly satisfied, loyal, and engagedAs we accomplish these objectives, strong financial results followAs demonstrated by our financial performance in recent years, the number of units sold in any 90-day period is not necessarily representative of the underlying strength of our businessFurthermore, a unit of sale is less relevant for us today than it was in the past, given the breadth of our portfolio, and the wider sales price dispersion within any given product line.

作为公司的观察者,这很臭,但我觉得这一点都不令人惊讶Apple的竞争对手都没有发布手机,平板电脑或PC的单位销售数字我认为让苹果花了这么长时间才能做出这样的变化更令人惊讶。秘密公司决定更隐秘- 11点的新闻。

在蒂姆库克一开始就宣布他们永远不会透露Apple Watch单位销售数字之后,它发挥得很好,我开始怀疑苹果是否会转而采用所有产品的政策在这方面,Apple Watch并没有什么特别之处。

I wish it weren’t so, but I don’t blame Apple for making this change我也不认为这与苹果预计在不久的将来出现不良单位销售数字有任何关系在短期内,Apple不会对此进行类似的政策调整这一变化将影响他们在未来几年内在各个方面公布的内容,无论是单位销售是好,坏,还是中等Apple是一家长期公司,而不是短期公司。

布隆伯格的蒂姆库尔潘有这个想法

HomePod was an abject failure, and the AirPower wireless charging pad is missing in actionBut Apple Watch Series 4 is getting rave reviews, and the sleeper hit, the AirPods, will likely do well when that product gets updatedA refresh of its Mac lineup is nice, but it’s destined to remain a niche product in a market where people are less interested in buying computers.

HomePod可能会令人失望,但“惨淡失败”似乎有点苛刻几周前,Strategy Analytics将HomePod的份额与美国挂钩“智能音箱”市场只有4%听起来很糟糕但他们还认为HomePod在200美元以上的智能扬声器市场中占有一席之地70%HomePod的售价为350美元,接近200美元也许Apple应该生产100美元的HomePod Mini或者什么东西,但鉴于HomePod是什么以及它的成本,它似乎是典型的Apple产品:占据市场的高端市场,整体市场份额被诅咒。

为了重新审视上面的情绪,我不认为Culpan认为Mac构成了“利基”74亿美元的收入 - 在一个季度中,最受欢迎的Mac都是过时的更新 - 是一个利基市场。

此外,不要继续选择带有一个段落的尼特,但AirPods现在“做得很好”,没有更新鉴于苹果上周对AirPods没什么可说的,很明显AirPods今年没有得到更新I still expect them to sell in record numbers as holiday gifts. 


史蒂夫乔布斯在WWDC 2005上宣布从PowerPC切换到英特尔芯片 

关于每瓦性能(大约2:50大关)的一点似乎是苹果将在今年或明年再次发布的一个论点,当时他们宣布Macs运行在Apple的内部ARM芯片上实际上,这个论点将完全相同:Apple对未来使用英特尔芯片无法构建的Mac的想法(通过Peter Zopf。)

我们在这一刻所能做的就是投票 

98岁的罗杰·安吉尔在“纽约客”中的鼓舞人心的作品:

What we can all do at this moment is vote — get up, brush our teeth, go to the polling place, and get in lineI was never in combat as a soldier, but now I amThose of you who haven’t quite been getting to your polling place lately, who want better candidates or a clearer system of making yourself heard, or who just aren’t in the habit, need to get it done this time around. If you stay home, count yourself among the hundreds of thousands now being disenfranchised by the relentless parade of restrictions that Republicans everywhere are imposing and enforcingIf you don’t vote, they have won, and you are a captive, one of their prizes.

通过Kottke谁恰当地将安吉尔描述为国宝。


2018年Retina MacBook Air

上周苹果活动的房间里的大象是英特尔。

苹果公司推出两款基于英特尔芯片的产品 - 新款MacBook Air和新款Mac Mini - 但几乎没有提到该公司的名字“英特尔”出现在一张幻灯片上在硬件工程副总裁Laura Legros的新MacBook Air展示期间她还说了一句话,说新的Airs有“最新的英特尔集成显卡”In the presentation of the new Mac Mini, “Intel” never appeared in a slide and wasn’t mentioned新款Mini中的CPU简称为4核和6核“第八代”处理器

一张幻灯片,一提。

苹果不会把英特尔扔在公交车下 - 他们正在接受“如果你没有什么好说的话,就不要说什么了“方法,他们应该Mac是苹果公司的产品,而不是英特尔的产品,最终苹果公司有责任将这两款产品推迟更新但苹果公司作为合作伙伴的挫败感在这一点上显而易见在同一活动中推出的另一款产品 - 新款iPad ProApple花了整整一段时间讨论iPad Pro中的A12X芯片及其提供的性能他们几乎没有时间谈论新款MacBook Air中CPU或GPU的性能性能实际上非常适合MacBook Air的价格和目标受众 - 但仅限于与其他基于英特尔的笔记本电脑相比与iPad Pro相比,它看起来并不好看。

单核 多核 计算
2018年MacBook Air配Retina 4,316 7,847 22,048
$ 999旧MacBook Air 3335 6118 14570
2018 iPad Pro 5007 18051 42574
iPhone XS 4851 10,534 21869
15“MacBook Pro w / 2.9 GHz Core i9 5653 21737 59010

我们在这里看到的是双重打击一方面,Apple的定制芯片团队正在全力以赴,年复一年地推出新的A系列芯片,性能和效率越来越高另一方面,英特尔错过了最后期限,而且他们经常发货的东西并不令人印象深刻事实上,当苹果确实花时间吹嘘新款MacBook Air芯片的性能时,他们正在谈论T2苹果设计的“安全芯片”,它不仅仅是管理安全功能,而且还有很多功能甚至在他们离开英特尔芯片之前,苹果就吹嘘他们自己的定制芯片的性能,而不是英特尔。

在上周纽约的幕后,我向Apple的一些人询问了为什么这两款Mac(MacBook Air和Mac Mini)在更新之间走了很长时间有人告诉我,Apple希望专注于“有意义的更新”“减速带”更新的日子已基本结束价值不存在。

新的MacBook Air是一个有意义的更新它更快,更小,更薄,更轻,具有极好的视网膜显示(最后),大大改进的扬声器,苹果公司出色的Force Touch触控板等等如果在漫长的等待中出现这款全新MacBook Air的祝福,那就是它与第三代Apple的蝴蝶键盘相媲美Air跳过坏键盘。

iPad阵容经常看到有意义的更新,不是因为Apple更关心iPad而不是MacBook,而是因为Apple控制着iPad的系统架构并且他们无法在MacBook上控制它 - 英特尔确实如此苹果公司销售的iPad数量超过了Mac,但Mac占据了这个数字收入明显增加Apple应该喜欢Mac,因为它是一个梦幻般的平台 - 但他们也应该喜欢它,因为它让公司赚了很多钱。

看看iPad的A12X与iPhone的A12相比,你可以看到Apple对iPad系统架构的关注程度当他们从英特尔转换到他们自己的芯片设计时,他们没有理由不再对Mac的定制芯片给予多少关注它应该是彻头彻尾的光荣。

但这就是未来目前,我们已经拥有了这款全新的MacBook Air,它非常可爱。

概观

新款MacBook Air只有一个CPU选项:“1.6GHz双核第8代英特尔酷睿i5处理器,Turbo Boost高达3.6GHz”没有按订单生产的CPU选项我可能错了,但是我认为这是英特尔时代的Mac笔记本电脑的首选MacBook Pro拥有大量不同的CPU选项令人惊讶的是,12英寸MacBook令人惊讶有三个CPU选项即使是基本型非视网膜MacBook Air也有两种CPU选择。

Why? I hate picking a CPU把成本放在一边,我永远不知道性能和电池寿命之间的平衡是什么这些是我希望Apple做出的决定这就是他们用iPhone和iPad做的事情。

当您订购新的MacBook Air时,您唯一的选择(除了颜色)是您想要多少存储空间和多少RAM(8或16 GB)就是这样,那应该是这样的。

自上周末以来,我一直在使用具有8 GB RAM和256 GB SSD存储空间的灰色模型我很高兴用基本的8 GB RAM测试一个型号 - 这是大多数人实际购买和使用的配置我使用了大量的内存,因为我倾向于在S​​afari中打开很多应用程序和很多选项卡 - 太多选项卡我的个人MacBook是2014年的13英寸MacBook Pro,内存为16 GB我一直在考虑购买一台配备32 GB RAM的新款13英寸MacBook Pro(我真的需要更频繁地清理我的Safari标签。)更新:当然,问题是目前只有15英寸的MacBook Pro支持超过16 GB的RAMMy desired 13-inch MacBook Pro with 32 GB of RAM doesn’t (yet) exist.

在过去的几天里,我一直在大量使用这种设备 - 同时尽可能多地使用这种设备测试新的iPad Pro至少 - 表现一直很好该系统是交换,但老实说,我没有注意到SSD性能非常好。

如果您不知道是否需要升级到16 GB的RAM,则不需要它我建议基本8 GB配置几乎适用于任何典型用户。

即使它不是Apple最好的,显示效果也很出色MacBook Pro显示器提供500尼特of maximum brightness; the new MacBook Air offers only 300 nits, according to AppleMacBook Pro还提供宽色域(P3),带Touch Bar的机型也提供True Tone他们的起价也是1,800美元所有一直在等待视网膜MacBook Air的人都应该对这款显示器感到满意 - 它清晰,准确,均衡,而且非常明亮。

外形尺寸非常完美它比13英寸的MacBook Pro显得更轻更轻,而且比旧款Air显得更加现代苹果公司在其最新款笔记本电脑中得不到足够信誉的一件事是显示器铰链的质量现在的金属,而不是塑料,这些铰链具有恰到好处的阻力 - 它们易于打开,易于关闭,并且易于调整到完美的视角很明显,当你看到这个行业,看看哪种尺寸的笔记本最受欢迎,但13英寸的显示器确实是大多数人的默认尺寸。

这些蝴蝶键盘是偏光的有些人爱他们,有些人讨厌他们我在中间我喜欢笔记本电脑键盘,比这些键盘更有点击感和更多的旅行,但是第三代键的锁定比前两代的键更快一些。我已经忘记了我曾经要求苹果制造MacBook键盘的人数触摸ID但是触摸栏好吧,就是这样我使用Touch ID遇到的唯一问题是我上周刚刚使用带有Face ID的新iPad Pro,这更好。

Esc键完美运行。

电池寿命一直很突出Apple的技术规格表明,这款新款MacBook Air的电池续航时间比任何其他MacBook Pro都要好我相信这个。

这是一个很好的小小的触摸:入门包中包含的Apple徽标贴纸与设备颜色匹配空间灰色MacBook Air的空间灰色贴纸也许这不是新的,但我之前没有注意到它。

现代MacBook和时代的终结

通过此更新,MacBook Air符合Apple现代MacBook设计语言:

  • 铝色选择(太空灰,银,金)
  • 蝴蝶键盘
  • 大力触摸触控板
  • USB-C / Thunderbolt 3端口,用于电源和外围设备

我想念旧设计有一些很酷的东西:

  • MagSafe电源USB-C插头很难拔出MagSafe更容易连接和断开连接新款Apple Pencil的磁性充电让我想起了MagSafe这真是个好主意我也想念MagSafe连接器上的充电指示灯。

  • 背面发光的Apple徽标我很乐意将它换成更薄的显示屏,但我确实很想念它它只是苹果Mac笔记本电脑的标志性方面,可以追溯到PowerBook时代上周我在布鲁克林的一部短片中看到一堆黑白“苹果背后”的黑白照片在MacBooks上突出显示发光的Apple徽标

  • 新的箭头键布局我已经习惯了这些蝴蝶键盘的感觉,但我不习惯新的箭头键布局我希望我的倒置T布局回来。

了解MacBook阵容中这种新空气的适用范围

回到八月我写道

But the more I think about it, the more I think that something along the lines of the “just put a retina display in the MacBook Air” scenario seems the most likelyNomenclaturally it makes no senseThe computer named just-plain “MacBook” should logically be the one that is the baseline best-selling model for the masses. The one named “Air” should be the one that is as thin and lightweight as is feasibleBut today we’re three years into the era when the just-plain MacBook is the radically thin and light model, and the Air is the best-selling baseline model that isn’t really any thinner or lighter than the Pro models好吧,那又怎样?We drive on parkways and park on driveways and no one is confused

And so here we are, with a new MacBook Air that really is the MacBook for almost everyone, and a just-plain MacBook that is the MacBook for those willing to pay a premium — both in dollars and performance — for an ultra thin and light form factor.

这些新的MacBook Airs是价格合理的电脑但目前苹果笔记本电脑阵容的整体状况有点混乱如果您想在Mac笔记本电脑上花费大约1,000-1,500美元,可以选择以下选项:

  • 旧的非视网膜MacBook Air,起价仍为1,000美元。

  • 新款MacBook Air起价1200美元。

  • 这款12英寸MacBook起价1300美元。

  • 没有Touch Bar的13英寸MacBook Pro - a.k.a.MacBook Escape - 起价1300美元。

1000美元的非视网膜空气和新的1,200美元视网膜空气之间的200美元差价很可能是您在Apple Store中可以花费的最高价值200美元The $1,000 MacBook Air is a machine I wouldn’t recommend to anyone; the $1,200 MacBook Air is a machine I’d recommend to anyone who doesn’t need more than 128 GB of storage.

非视网膜MacBook Air的CPU升级为150美元,但即便进行升级,它仍然比新款MacBook Air慢我明白为什么售价999美元的Air仍然在阵容中 - 所以Apple可以说他们有999美元的笔记本电脑我不知道为什么老款Air的1,150美元配置仍然存在这似乎是新MacBook Air旁边的一个烂摊子。

12英寸MacBook的入门型号配备256 GB存储空间其他入门型号 - 包括没有Touch Bar的MacBook Pro - 拥有128 GB的存储空间对于所有这些设备,从128 GB到256 GB的存储升级需要200美元考虑到这些价格,这些价格开始变得更有意义了对于256 GB的存储空间和8 GB的RAM:

  • 新款MacBook Air:1,400美元
  • 12英寸MacBook:1,300美元
  • 13英寸MacBook Pro:1,500美元

12英寸MacBook适合那些想要获得最薄,最轻的MacBook的用户它的重量比新款MacBook Air重3/4磅,这是非常重要的。

但是,目前还不清楚没有Touch Bar的MacBook Pro适用于今天原则上,它适用于那些想要比MacBook Air提供更高性能的人在实践中,它不是更快- 在单核中大致相同,在多核中大约快15%它的重量更大,成本更高,而且没有Touch ID。

12英寸MacBook和没有Touch Bar的MacBook Pro都需要更新(我是否曾提到过英特尔最近一直在放弃这个球?)据推测,更新即将到来,当他们到达时,这些价格应该更有价值但是现在,新款MacBook Air是唯一一款看起来不错的MacBook。

很多人都在看今天的阵容,认为他们肯定会遗漏一些东西,因为很明显大多数人在这个价位范围内寻找MacBook应该买新的MacBook Air他们没有遗漏任何东西The new Air is exactly that: the MacBook most people should buy, and exactly the MacBook everyone has been asking Apple to make. 


2018年iPad专业版

iPad Pro就像是来自另一个世界的计算机在正常的宇宙中,摩尔定律已经停止提供显着的同比回报,高性能便携式设备需要风扇来冷却它们在iPad世界中,摩尔定律依然年复一年地提供,超快速,真正“专业”的便携式设备不需要风扇。

当我在2017年6月回顾上一代iPad专业版时,我写

Apple的内部芯片团队继续惊叹No one buys an iPad because of CPU benchmarks, but the new iPad Pro’s CPU performance is mind-bogglingForget about comparisons to the one-port MacBook — the iPad Pro blows that machine out of the water performance-wiseThe astounding thing is that the new iPad Pro holds its own against the MacBookin single-core performance.

配备Apple的A12X片上系统的新iPad专业版现在在单一产品中具有竞争力和多核你可以购买最快的MacBook Pro性能一些结果来自GeekBench 4

单核 多核 计算
2018 iPad Pro 5007 18051 42574
2017 iPad Pro 3894 9,242 27349
iPhone XS 4851 10,534 21869
15“MacBook Pro w / 2.9 GHz Core i9 5653 21737 59010

这款15英寸MacBook Pro的RAM和存储空间基本为3,100美元新的iPad Pro售价800美元这不是一个完全公平的比较 - 首先,MacBook Pro的基本存储空间为512 GB,iPad为64 GBBut even with 512 GB of storage, the new iPad Pro is just $1,150 for the 11-inch model and $1,350 for the 12.9-inch.这就是目前顶级的MacBook Pro。新的iPad是快点比最近的MacBook Pro型号。

“没有人因为CPU基准而购买iPad”,我在去年写道我不认为那是真的我认为有人会因为其性能而购买新的iPad Pro在上周活动结束后的实践中,Apple正在展示Adobe Lightroom从哈苏相机编辑50万像素RAW图像这些照片是由Austin Mann在那里拍摄的,并且有助于演示该软件,展示了真正的专业摄影师在现实生活中用真实图像做什么经验是完全流畅和瞬间的。

iPad的主要吸引力始终在于使用iPad的体验它仍然是但暂时搁置一下,将新的iPad Pro仅视为便携式计算设备Its performance, both from the CPU and GPU, is simply bananas这很坚果令人惊讶的每美元性能,惊人的每瓦性能。

苹果公司在iPad Pro推出期间吹嘘它们比去年销售的笔记本电脑的92%快当你认为在这个公式中包含MacBooks的“PC”时,这并不是那么有趣当iPad比普通笔记本慢得多时,iPad很受欢迎且很有用现在它们比最高端的笔记本电脑更快它们只是令人印象深刻,令人印象深刻的平衡电脑。

Apple Pencil 2.0

新的Apple Pencil是我见过的最好的“2.0”产品之一最初的Apple Pencil是一款了不起的产品,但是新款产品的概念接近完美新的和改进的:

  • 哑光效果我从来没有想过要抱怨原始铅笔的光泽质地,但是当我把手放在新的铅笔上时,我发现哑光对于这个产品更好。

  • 磁充电和配对当传言显示新的iPad专业版从Lighting转向USB-C时,有很多人猜测苹果需要用USB-C制作新的铅笔这要好得多作为一个很好的触摸,当你第一次将铅笔连接到你的iPad,iOSm.1manbetx 真可爱使用原始的铅笔,苹果没有提供一个很好的答案,你应该保留它不在你的手中The magnetic connection answers that它非常强大,当我将iPad放入背包时,我会毫不犹豫地保持铅笔磁性连接。

  • 没有帽子,没有加密狗我花了将近两年的时间,但上个月我终于在火车上丢失了原来的铅笔新铅笔没有任何损失。

  • 平坦的一面旧的铅笔被加重以防止它滚动,但平坦的一面效果更好大多数钢笔和铅笔都有夹子或至少有一个平面,这是有原因的。

  • 可选雕刻我想知道这有多少是“为什么不?“现实世界的情况是,工友或家庭成员失去了谁的铅笔是谁的。

  • 双击看起来像一个小东西,但它确实使访问橡皮擦更容易。

新的苹果铅笔是如此之好我没有任何抱怨,只能想到未来的一个建议:如果双击时有触觉反馈,那就太好了。

尺寸和外形

Apple并不总能解释他们的想法,但是当他们这样做时,它通常很有意义他们对两个iPad专业版物理尺寸的解释就是一个很好的例子它们使11英寸设备的物理尺寸与10.5英寸iPad相同,并增加了显示尺寸他们这样做是为了让键盘盖仍能提供全尺寸键盘使用12.9英寸型号,它们保持显示尺寸相同并缩小物理设备,使其显着更小和更轻。

在过去的五天里,我一直在使用12.9英寸的型号进行测试持有它更容易,更舒适曾经有一段时间我忘记了我正在使用“大”iPad当我的妻子 - 一个目前正在使用10.5英寸iPad Pro的狂热iPad用户 - 首次看到它时,她简直不敢相信它是更大的一个她从未真正考虑过使用之前的12.9英寸iPad,但经过一段时间使用这个评测单元,她确信她想要这个尺寸I think everyone should go try them in a store before ordering, but I suspect most people who use an iPad as their primary “bigger than a phone” portable computer will prefer the 12.9-inch model, the same way most people prefer 13-inch MacBooks over smaller ones like the 12-inch MacBook or late, great 11-inch MacBook Air.

就个人而言,我仍然喜欢较小的尺寸但我不会将iPad用作我的主要便携式工作,而这些新的iPad专业版不会改变这一点。

通过拆分视图,iPad支持并排运行两个应用程序当这两个应用程序都是50-50时,12.9英寸和11英寸iPad之间仍然存在差异在12.9英寸的iPad上,共享屏幕50-50的两个应用程序都显示为应用程序的“全屏”版本这就像屏幕的两半中的每一部分都被视为iPad Mini显示屏然而,在11英寸iPad上,共享屏幕50-50的两个应用程序使用水平的紧凑尺寸类。Apple在这里说明了不同之处这不是大多数人关心的事情,但这也是iPad高级用户可能更喜欢12.9英寸型号的另一个原因。

iPad的平面看起来很酷,感觉很好我认为这不仅仅是有史以来最好看的iPad,而是有史以来最好看的iOS设备圆角和其他地方平坦没有缺口两侧甚至比iPhone 5 / SE更好 - 更令人愉悦我希望看到iPhone采用这种外观。1

显示效果非常好,就像iPhone一样,边缘到边缘的圆角外观让老款车型看起来过时了iPad上的Tap-to-wake感觉非常自然我已经习惯了一年多的iPhone X / XS,但我认为它在iPad上更为重要使用iPhone时,肖像一直是自然方向,所以主页按钮几乎总是在底部iPad没有真正的定位 - 它们可以像在肖像中一样经常用于风景在景观中拥有侧面的主页按钮总是有点不优雅。

由于缺少主页按钮,我不需要任何调整期我认为其中一部分是使用iPhone X和XS的一年,另一部分是iPad自去年iOS 11以来一直使用从底部轻扫手势切换应用程序并进入主屏幕iPad准备在失去主页按钮前一年失去主页按钮。

相机和面部识别码

在过去的几年中,新的iPad经常使用iPhone的相机 - 通常落后一代或两代新的iPad专业版拥有自己的全新后置摄像头它与先前iOS设备的相机不完全相同我没有时间对它进行彻底测试,所以我不确定它与最近的iPhone相机相比在哪里,但它似乎比之前的iPad Pro相机更上一层楼了。

前置摄像头基于iPhone XS和XR这允许纵向模式(您不能在后置摄像头使用纵向模式)。

Face ID效果很好你必须以纵向训练它,但一旦受过训练(训练很快,就像iPhone X级手机一样)它只适用于任何方向我注意到的唯一障碍是在铺设时使用iPad是很常见的面部ID可以挣扎。

iPad并不是真正的多用户设备,因为与MacOS不同,iOS仍然没有任何用户帐户的概念但我知道很多人使用iPad作为共享家庭设备iOS 12将您限制为具有面部识别标识的两个面部 - 您的默认面部和“替代外观”这对我和我的妻子分享这个iPad很好但如果您有两个以上的人想要共享一台iPad,则不能使用超过两个的Face ID当然,您可以输入密码,但我认为iPad上的Face ID需要支持两个以上的面孔。

  • 扬声器听起来很棒我不确定它们比之前的iPad Pro扬声器有多好,但它们响亮而清晰,并提供了惊人数量的立体声这是一台很棒的小电视。

  • 我坚信iOS文件应用程序应该显示连接的USB驱动器我之前相信这一点,当需要使用Lightning适配器连接USB外围设备时,但现在iPad专业版有USB-C端口,看起来很愚蠢,USB驱动器不会出现在Files应用程序中我认为iPad的旧政策甚至没有文件应用程序都是有道理的我很高兴Apple添加了Files应用程序,但是没有一个以简单的名义但是对我来说,拥有一个文件应用程序却没有意义连接时显示USB驱动器的内容这只是让人感到恶意。

  • 除了用手指敲击显示器以将其唤醒之外,您还可以使用Apple Pencil轻触它以向右跳到NotesThere are settings to always open a new note or re-open your most recent note它非常聪明,我想有些人会用它每时每刻

  • 新的智能键盘保护套是比旧智能键盘更好的设计正如Apple所承诺的那样,它更坚固,更稳定Apple对所有这些磁铁都很认真他们工作不过,缺点是它在设备上更厚,因为它覆盖了正面和背面我认为这种权衡是值得的旧智能键盘太聪明了与真正的笔记本电脑相比,“笔记本电脑模式”中的iPad Pro仍然是如此,并且永远都是如此On a MacBook, the base is the heavy part and display is light; with an iPad Pro it’s the other way around在键盘方面,新的一个对我来说和旧的一样。也许新的点击它有点多点,但这可能是我感觉我想要的感觉 - 我屈服于评论者的安慰剂效应。

底线

这些iPad专业版并不便宜投入一个售价179美元的Smart Keyboard Folio和129美元的Apple Pencil,甚至售价799美元的基本款也将超过1,100美元(这款12.9英寸的智能键盘保护套售价199美元。)但这些不仅仅是“平板电脑”他们是平板电脑,是的,但没有只是给他们美元兑换美元,它们比苹果有史以来制造的MacBook价值更高它们与MacBook Pro的CPU和GPU性能相匹配 - 在某些领域超过 - 售价3000美元或更高These are serious iPads for serious iPad users. 


  1. 有一些猜测(或者只是一厢情愿的想法)今年的新款iPhone可能会支持Apple Pencil这对于闪电铅笔来说是有道理的,但对于这种新的磁性铅笔而言并非如此iPhone需要其中一个磁力充电器而不是附在iPhone的侧面,我认为它必须在后面But would you want a strong magnet on a phone? And how would it work through a case? The old Apple Pencil seemed like something that可以在iPhone上工作The new one not so much. ↩︎

数以万计的Google员工和承包商参与“真正改变的全球罢工” 

Google Walkout:

More than 20,000 Google employees and contractors in Google offices located in 50 cities worldwide walked out for real change at 11:10am local time protesting sexual harassment, misconduct, lack of transparency, and a workplace culture that doesn’t work for everyoneNine offices have yet to report numbers, and additional offices in Europe have planned walkouts in the coming days[...]

抗议活动组织者表示,他们对此细节感到反感the recent article from The New York Timeswhich provided the latest example of a culture of complicity, dismissiveness, and support for perpetrators in the face of sexual harassment, misconduct, and abuse of powerThey framed the problem as part of a longstanding pattern in a toxic work culture further amplified by systemic racism.

人群中有很多“不要成为邪恶”的标志。

Apple的欢迎,包容性奢侈品牌 

扎卡里·卡拉贝尔(Zachary Karabell)在连线文章中标题为“苹果放弃大众市场,随着iPhone变得奢侈”:

As its market cap hovers near $1 trillion, Apple has gradually been shifting its strategy away from grabbing ever-more market share and focusing instead on dominating the higher end of its marketsIf there were even a small doubt about that, the recent results made it screamingly clear.

什么时候有Apple曾经had a different strategy than focusing on dominating the higher end of its markets and ignoring sheer market share? The iPod — maybe — was a market share leader, depending on how you defined its category但即使使用iPod,苹果显然也决心主宰市场的高端市场。

同样值得注意的是,苹果商店挤满了各行各业的人们。正如我在7年前所说,苹果的奢侈品牌是大众市场的奢侈品

I think it’s impossible to overstate the importance of Apple’s retail businessThe growth in stores — both in the number of outlets and the size and architectural prominence of the flagship locations — is a physical manifestation of Apple’s market share growth in device salesLuxury retailers have long done this. Think about brands like Tiffany, Gucci, Hermès, Louis Vuitton. Their retail stores are physical manifestations of the brandsBut Apple’s brand of luxury is mass market luxuryApple’s stores are crowded他们很热闹他们很响亮他们是clusive, notclusive。

自从我写这篇文章已经有7年了,但今天的每一个字都是如此真实。

Apple的新地图 

Justin O'Beirne详细介绍了Apple在iOS 12中全新地图的有限部署(加利福尼亚大部分地区,内华达州西部的几个县)的新功能:

Unless they’re already listed on Yelp, none of the shapes Apple has added appear in its search results or are labeled on its map. And this is a problem for Apple becauseAR is all about labels — but Apple’s new map is all about shapes

苹果制作正确的地图也是如此吗?

O'Beirne的敏锐观察是这样的:即使在苹果新地图推出的领域,谷歌在正确识别领域仍然遥遥领先地方和具体目的地对于地图来说,这可能是最重要的事情像往常一样,他的作品精美,精心设计和插图。

Dan Frakes作为Mac App Store编辑进入Apple 

丹弗雷克斯:

Some job news (thread): After 4(!) amazing years at @wirecutter, I’m leaving for a new editorial position at Apple (Mac App Store Editor!) focused on helping Mac users discover and get more out of great Mac apps(这就像Mac Gems redux :))

Apple是一个很好的工作场所,App Store团队正在制作(和调试)出色的工作这对Apple来说很有用,对App Store用户有好处,对于那些优质应用受到编辑关注的开发人员来说是好事,对于这些才华横溢的作家和编辑来说也是有益的。

但。

苹果媒体世界中的大量顶级人才现在在苹果公司工作,没有留言,也没有信用其中许多人来自Macworld除了那些曾在Apple全职工作的人之外,还有其他人正在为App Store功能开发自由职业者我并不怪苹果招聘 天赋而且我并不责怪任何人在Apple获得高薪,安全的工作(或接受高薪的自由职业)。

但我不认为这对苹果媒体世界来说是件好事关于来自公司外围的Apple产品和平台的人才库正在变得越来越浅在个人层面上,这种趋势对我来说并不好,因为我无法链接到App Store文章,因为它们不在网络上They only exist within the App Store apps我无法链接到最近关于独立iOS和Mac应用程序的一些最好的文章 - 这有点奇怪这些作品都没有公开存档。

基础五十年,计算机个人化的语言 

哈里麦克拉肯,为时间的一个很好的功能:

It was huge news among the small number of people who could be called computer nerds at the time — people like Paul Allen, who was working as a programmer for Honeywell in Boston.

When he bought a copy of the January 1975 issue of Popular Electronics at the Out of Town newsstand in Harvard Square, with the Altair on the cover, he and an old friend — a Harvard sophomore named Bill Gates — got excitedImmediately, they knew they wanted to try to make the Altair run BASIC, a language they’d both learned in its original timeshared-via-Teletype form at the Lakeside School in Seattle.

Actually, Allen had been ruminating about the possibility of building his own BASIC even before he knew about the Altair. “There hadn’t been attempts to write a full-blown programming language for a microprocessor,” he explains“But when the chips leading up to the 8080 processor became available, I realized we could write a program for it that would be powerful enough to run BASIC.”

For those of us of a certain age, a BASIC prompt was what you’d expect to see when you turned any computer on.

iPhone XR上的Halide和Focal Depth 

本·桑多夫斯基:

Now we get to do that again: Halide 1.11 will let you take Portrait mode photos of just about anything, not just people.

We do this by grabbing the focus pixel disparity map and running the image through our custom blurWhen you open Halide on iPhone XR, simply tap ‘Depth’ to enable depth captureAny photo you take will have a depth map, and if there’s sufficient data to determine a foreground and background, the image will get beautifully rendered bokeh, just like iPhone XS shots.

You’ll notice that enabling the Depth Capture mode does not allow you to preview Portrait blur effect or even automatically detect peopleUnfortunately, the iPhone XR does not stream depth data in realtime, so we can’t do a portrait previewYou’ll have to review your portrait effects after having taken the photo, much like the Google Pixel.

我很高兴Halide提供这个,但我可以看到为什么Apple没有在内置的Camera app中为非人类主题启用它这是命中还是错过但是当它击中时它看起来很棒What you want to do is let Halide handle the focus blurring; if you don’t like the result, disable “Depth” for that shot in Halide.

随着最新iPhone硬件的频繁更新和支持,Halide已成为严肃的iPhone摄影的必备应用程序也不伤害它是一个漂亮的应用程序。

iPhone XR评论综述

中的底线结论我的iPhone XR评论

It sounds too good to be true, but the XR is almost as good as the XS models at a更低的价格Dollar for dollar, the XR is almost certainly the best iPhone Apple has ever made.

我本周已经阅读了十几篇关于XR的评论,这是他们每一篇的底线这是一个非凡的共识但是有一些有趣的差异。

Matthew Panzarino认为最大的妥协是缺少长焦第二相机

但是,我发现自己错过了很多变焦镜头This is absolutely a your mileage may vary scenario, but I take the vast majority of my pictures with the telephoto lensLooking back at my year with the iPhone X I’d say north of 80% of my pictures were shot with the telephoto, even if they were close upsI simply prefer the “52mm” equivalent with its nice compression and tight cropIt’s just a better way to shoot than a wide angle — as any photographer or camera company will tell you because that’s the standard (equivalent) lens that all cameras have shipped with for decades.

Wide angle lenses were always a kludge in smartphones and it’s only in recent years that we’ve started getting decent telephotos. If I had my choice, I’d default to the tele and have a button to zoomto the wide angle, that would be much nicer.

But with the iPhone XR you’re stuck with the wide — and it’s a single lens at that, without the two different perspectives Apple normally uses to gather its depth data to apply the portrait effect.

另一方面,Nilay Patel不会错过远摄第二相机,而是相反认为与XS iPhone相比,LCD显示屏是最大的折衷方案

Those differences are interesting and worth pulling apart, but really, the simplest way to think about the iPhone XR is that it offers virtually the same experience as the iPhone XS for $250 less, but you’ll be looking at a slightly worse display.

那么,您对手机显示屏的关注程度是多少?

看iPhone XR上的显示器很好It’s fine! It has a lower-resolution and pixel density than the OLEDs in new flagship phones like the iPhone XS, Galaxy S9, and Pixel 3, but it’s the same 326 pixels per inch as Apple’s previous non-Plus LCD iPhones. Anyone coming to this phone from any iPhone, save the iPhone X, will not notice a huge discrepancy in resolutionI suspect most people will find it totally acceptable.

That’s not to say it matches the quality of previous iPhone LCDs. The iPhone XR LCD definitely shifts a little pink and drops brightness quickly when you look at it off-axis, which often leads to a bit of a shimmery effect when you move the phone aroundI noticed that shimmer right away, but I had to point it out to other people for them to see it(It’s one of those things you might not notice at first, but you can’t un-see it.) Apple told me the XR display should match previous iPhone LCDs in terms of performance, but side by side with an iPhone 8 Plus, the off-axis shifts are definitely more pronounced.

Panzarino和Patel都不对显而易见,显示器和缺少第二台摄像机是XR上最大的两个折衷方案,它的定价远低于XS型号对你更重要的是纯粹主观的Panzarino说:“如果我有我的选择,我会默认使用电视机,并有一个缩放按钮to the wide angle”; Patel says “I rarely take zoom photos, so I didn’t miss the telephoto lens from the iPhone XS at all”.

不过,请相信潘扎里诺的一面If I could have a next-gen iPhone XR that either (a) keeps the same LCD display but adds the XS’s second camera, or (b) switches to the XS’s OLED display (including smaller bezel) but still lacks the second camera, I would choose (a) in a heartbeat在使用iPhone XR一整天后,我不再看到显示屏或更宽的挡板出现任何问题我每天都想念长焦相机。

来自Patel的另一个消息,关于Apple为使XR显示器尽可能好的惊人工作:

Apple’s also done some extremely detailed work to make the rounded corners of the LCD perfectly match the corners of the phone itself, which is work I desperately wish other companies would do. (Most other phones with rounded corners have mismatched radii, and the Pixel 3 XL has different corner radii at the top and bottom, which, to me, looks far worse than any chunky bezel.)

It’s somewhat easier to round the corners of an OLED panel: each pixel is its own light source, so you can turn them off individually around the curve to smooth it outYou can’t do that with an LCD panel because there’s just one single backlight for the entire display, which will shine through the black pixels along the edgeSo Apple built little apertures for the pixels around the corners of the XR display to mask some of the light coming through, on top of antialiasing the curve in softwareIt’s a neat example of Apple’s attention to detail.

分头来自Panzarino的评论让我笑了:

iPhone XR是苹果公司在其突破性iPhone X中的最佳软件。

我认为它可以用来制作一个完整的iPhone XR评论,使用它是iPhone X的惊人仿制品。

说到设计细节,Rene Ritchie,在另一个热烈的评论中,指出一些小工业设计的琐事

Less fine is the sudden loss of Z-axis asymmetry thanks to the shoved down Lightning port on iPhone XRAgain, yes, this is only something I.Dnerds like myself care about, but after iPhone XS broke X-axis symmetry to fit a 4 × 4 MiMo antenna on the bottom, iPhone XR has gone and broken the Z by top aligning instead of middle aligning Lightning to the screws and grills, probably to make room for the not-as-thin-as-self-illuminating-OLED edge-to-edge LCD.

I still haven’t gotten used to the steel screws and ports not always being vapor coated to match the aluminum anodization, now this?

I know it bugs the designers and engineers even more than it does meAnd while it’s still not as rando as some other companies seem to be by tossing elements into the casing like drunken darts at a board, and as nit-picky (and I’m sure eye-rolling) as I’m sure it is for some of you, I’ve鉴于三星对此不屑一顾for years, so I’m not going to stop just because, this time, my eyes are bleeding courtesy of Apple.

我讨厌承认这一点,但我没有提到Lightning端口没有用螺丝或扬声器格栅居中,因为直到我阅读Rene的评论时我才注意到它(Nilay Patel也提到过。)但现在我无法理解它:

iPhone XR的底视图,显示Lightning端口与螺钉或扬声器格栅的中心对齐方式。

它没有完全对齐,但它是完全可以原谅的制作一个没有下巴或额头的液晶手机来掩盖显示控制器真的非常非常困难这很难做到OLED没有下巴或额头的手机 - 只要问谷歌但液晶显示器是一个不同的球赛据我所知,iPhone XR是有史以来唯一一款没有下巴或前额的液晶手机显示控制器位于显示屏下方,必须按下Lightning端口这绝对是一种妥协,但对于设备的整体外观来说非常值得Everyone would notice if the XR had a chin; almost no one is going to notice the Lightning port is top-aligned rather than centered with the screws and speakers.

像往常一样,乔安娜斯特恩拥有最好的视频她获得了Product Red变体,她的视频真实地展示了它的外观她还很好地说明了你会错过远摄镜头的场景。

最后,关于定价以及今天的手机是“正义”手机的概念。这是连线的Lauren Goode

Apple wants to make it clear that it’s not trying to gouge you. Sure, when the iPhone X launched last year, Apple priced it at nearly $1,000And yes, this year’s iPhone XS sells for the same amountAnd of course, Apple killed off its smallest and most affordable handset, the iPhone SE, right as it was introducing the most expensive iPhone yet.

但是苹果希望你知道你有一个选择You get to pick from a very small pool of potential devices, but hey, at least you have options! Never mind that certain choices, like color, were predetermined for you by a room full of powerful tastemakers who decided to make coral or蔚蓝的发生Never mind that whatever you pay, it’s still a crazy amount of money for a phoneYou are making the callYou, sir or madam, have your choice of new iPhones.

我认为Goode的其他评论与750美元(或更好,128 GB版本为800美元)是一个“手机的疯狂金额”的概念相矛盾。

手机是大多数人生活中最重要的电脑他们是只要计算机在许多人的生活中没有人说在笔记本电脑上花费高达1,500美元是疯狂的 - 但大多数人使用和关心他们的手机比他们的笔记本电脑更多这就是手机显示器越来越大的原因在2007年之前的意义上,我们将它们视为“手机”已经腐败了。

手机曾经只是一部无线电话不再它们是我们永远存在的个人电脑它们也是我们最重要的相机(通常是我们的只要相机)十年前,傻瓜相机很容易就能卖到200-400美元这是你的手表,它是你的闹钟,它是你的Walkman,它是你的地图和GPS这是你的钱包里装满了你的家人和朋友的照片它也越来越多了实际的钱包

如果你把iPhone XR带回2006年,人们会感到惊讶如果你告诉他们他们可以花750美元买一个他们认为你在说谎。

在相关的说明中,我认为iPhone价格并没有真正上涨去年的X和今年的XS车型是一个新的高级车型iPhone XR是之前“常规”顶级电话的手机新的顶级iPhone曾经花费600-650美元,是的,iPhone XR起价为750美元但是当你考虑通货膨胀时的起始价格差不多iPhone 4于2010年6月推出,起价600美元2010年6月美元600美元今天大概是700美元这600美元的iPhone在2010年为你带来了16 GB的iPhone32 GB型号售价700美元今天的价格约为810美元 - 比128 GB iPhone XR的价格高出10美元,我认为这是大多数人的阵容中的最佳点通货膨胀调整后,iPhone XR正好符合2010年iPhone 4的价格。

Considering how much more capable an iPhone XR is compared to an iPhone 4, I’d say $750 is an amazing bargain. 


安迪鲁宾回应纽约时报的故事

Josh Marshall,在TPM写作:

As a friend pointed out yesterday, 2016 can be seen as a fluke一系列完美的风暴因素汇集在一起​​,让唐纳德特朗普总统在三个关键国家中获得少数民众投票和薄利多销2018年,如果它是共和党人的胜利选举,将是一个选择批准我们在过去两年中所看到的一切这将是一个现实,我们将不得不面对它所说的关于国家的状况它将向国外发出一个信号,即现在这是美国的政治现实,毫无疑问地加速了特朗普刺激或首先驱使他进入白宫的所有地缘政治进程。

很多人称这次选举是我们有生之年中最重要的一次我知道,这听起来有点夸张你可以找到一些人对每次选举都说同样的话但我认为马歇尔将手指放在上面2016年当然是一次重大选举,但对特朗普总统任期意味着什么没有达成共识许多人投票支持特朗普辩称,虽然他说疯狂,无知,鲁莽,可恨的事情,但他实际上并不会在办公室里疯狂,无知,鲁莽,讨厌的事情现在我们知道,我们都知道。

如果共和党人举行国会,它将批准我们是谁。

中国建议特朗普转投华为手机 

路透社:

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying also dismissed the Times story, calling such reports “evidence that the New York Times makes fake news.”

Speaking at a news conference on Thursday, she also offered two suggestions apparently aimed at the Trump administration.

“If they are really very worried about Apple phones being bugged, then they can change to using Huawei,” she said, referring to China’s biggest telecommunications equipment maker.

一个不错的燃烧,但如果俄罗斯和中国真的听取特朗普不安全的手机通话,他们几乎肯定是通过窃听蜂窝信号或电话网络,而不是通过黑客攻击他使用的iPhone我不认为时代的故事说清楚,但应该有。

Some of these results seem impossible手持式长时间曝光是一项巨大的突破。

在哈夫,谷歌风格 

安德鲁·马兰兹(Andrew Marantz)两年前为“纽约客”撰写关于HBO的文章硅谷

During one visit to Google’s headquarters, in Mountain View, about six writers sat in a conference room with Astro Teller, the head of GoogleX, who wore a midi ring and kept his long hair in a ponytail“Most of our research meetings are fun, but this one was uncomfortable,” Kemper told meGoogleX is the company’s “moonshot factory,” devoted to projects, such as self-driving cars, that are difficult to build but might have monumental impactHooli, a multibillion-dollar company on “Silicon Valley,” bears a singular resemblance to Google(The Google founder Larry Page, in Fortune: “We’d like to have a bigger impact on the world by doing more things.” Hooli’s C.E.O., in season two: “I don’t want to live in a world where someone makes the world a better place better than we do.”) The previous season, Hooli had launched HooliXYZ, its own “moonshot factory,” whose experiments were slapstick absurdities: monkeys who use bionic arms to masturbate; powerful cannons for launching potatoes across a room“He claimed he hadn’t seen the show, and then he referred many times to specific things that had happened on the show,” Kemper said“His message was, ‘We don’t do stupid things hereWe do things that actually are going to change the world, whether you choose to make fun of that or not.’ ” (Teller could not be reached for comment.)

Teller ended the meeting by standing up in a huff, but his attempt at a dramatic exit was marred by the fact that he was wearing Rollerblades他沉默地摇摇晃晃地走向门口“Then there was this awkward moment of him fumbling with his I.D. badge, trying to get the door to open,” Kemper said“It felt like it lasted an hour我们都试图不笑Even while it was happening, I knew we were all thinking the same thing: Can we use this?” In the end, the joke was deemed “too hacky to use on the show.”

通过汤姆加拉,谁打趣,“每当新闻中出现一个重要的谷歌故事时,我总会想到这一点,这是有史以来最有趣的关于谷歌的事情。”

安迪鲁宾:“拥有就像你是我的财产,我可以把你借给别人” 

Wakabayashi Daisuke和Katie Benner在“纽约时报”上发表了一篇严厉的报道,称谷歌大规模支付并保护高级管理人员可靠地被指控性行为不端像“泰晤士报”的许多长篇报道一样,一些最有趣的细节深埋在报告中关于安迪鲁宾的话,差不多有1,900个单词:

先生Rubin, 55, who met his wife at Google, also dated other women at the company while married, said four people who worked with himIn 2011, he had a consensual relationship with a woman on the Android team who did not report to him, they saidThey said Google’s human resources department was not informed, despite rules requiring disclosure when managers date someone who directly or indirectly reports to them.

In a civil suit filed this month by MrRubin’s ex-wife, Rie Rubin, she claimed he had multiple “ownership relationships” with other women during their marriage, paying hundreds of thousands of dollars to them这对夫妇在八月离婚了。

该诉讼包括2015年8月电子邮件的截图Rubin sent to one woman“You will be happy being taken care of,” he wrote“Being owned is kinda like you are my property, and I can loan you to other people.”

这个故事如何埋藏在故事的深处,而不是lede?

这个:

先生Rubin often berated subordinates as stupid or incompetent, they said谷歌没有采取什么措施来抑制这种行为It took action only when security staff found bondage sex videos on MrRubin’s work computer, said three former and current Google executives briefed on the incidentThat year, the company docked his bonus, they said.

这是另一个故事,也埋在1,100字以内:

In 2013, Richard DeVaul, a director at Google X, the company’s research and development arm, interviewed Star Simpson, a hardware engineerDuring the job interview, she said he told her that he and his wife were “polyamorous,” a word often used to describe an open marriageShe said he invited her to Burning Man, an annual festival in the Nevada desert, the following week.

女士Simpson went with her mother and said she thought it was an opportunity to talk to MrDeVaul关于这份工作She said she brought conservative clothes suitable for a professional meeting.

先生DeVaul的营地,MsSimpson said, he asked her to remove her shirt and offered a back rubShe said she refused. When he insisted, she said she relented to a neck rub.

“I didn’t have enough spine or backbone to shut that down as a 24-year-old,” said Ms辛普森,现年30岁。

A few weeks later, Google told her she did not get the job, without explaining why.

这家伙仍然有效在Google担任Google X的董事。

App Store中的应用内购买诈骗 

Apple’s App Store isn’t free from scams, eitherJohn Koetsier,为福布斯写作:

我自己试了一下,流程很清楚:

  1. 下载应用程序
  2. 打开它
  3. Click the big “Start” button (this has small, hard-to-read pricing information, but even though I was testing the app and forewarned, I missed it)
  4. Instantly be taken to an Apple payments confirmation screen: free for three days, and then $3.99/week in perpetuity.

流动是聪明和偷偷摸摸的It’s carefully designed to have you “agree” to the charges without having any intention of paying

“Users open the app and quickly tap a ‘Start’ button or ‘Continue’ button on the first page,” she told me via email“Unfortunately this loads the Apple payment prompt instead of starting the free app as most users would expectUsers then panic and press the home screen to exit the app — unfortunately on fingerprint devices this makes payment or signs up for the free trial.”

Needless to say, $4/week for a very, very, very simple barcode-scanning device is completely ridiculous$156/year borders on criminal.

从那以后,苹果公司已经推出了大部分应from the App Store, but how did they get there in the first place? I can see how a new app with a malicious IAP scam might slip through review, but once an app is generating tens of thousands of dollars a month, it ought to get a thorough review from the App Store.

上面提到的骗局无疑是非常聪明的我之前从未真正考虑过这个问题,但Touch ID设备上的主页按钮同时用作“是的我确实想要授权这笔付款“验证让我离开这个应用程序,然后回到主屏幕“逃生舱就像这样滥用成熟面部识别功能不会使X级iPhone免受诈骗,但要求您双击侧面按钮以验证付款意味着您不会被无意中欺骗。

BuzzFeed新闻:'安装在数百万部Android手机上的应用程序跟踪用户行为以执行数百万美元的广告欺诈计划' 

Craig Silverman,报道BuzzFeed新闻:

One way the fraudsters find apps for their scheme is to acquire legitimate apps through We Purchase Apps and transfer them to shell companiesThey then capture the behavior of the app’s human users and program a vast network of bots to mimic it, according to analysis from Protected Media, a cybersecurity and fraud detection firm that analyzed the apps and websites at BuzzFeed News’ request.

This means a significant portion of the millions of Android phone owners who downloaded these apps were secretly tracked as they scrolled and clicked inside the applicationBy copying actual user behavior in the apps, the fraudsters were able to generate fake traffic that bypassed major fraud detection systems[...]

In total, the apps identified by BuzzFeed News have been installed on Android phones more than 115 million times, according to data from analytics service AppBrainMost are games, but others include a flashlight app, a selfie app, and a healthy eating app. One app connected to the scheme, EverythingMe, has been installed more than 20 million times.

这些罪犯掠夺了数千万美元,其中包括数亿美元数百万来自Google自己的广告网络

底线:如果用于广告收费的指标可以伪造,那么它将是伪造的广告跟踪既是对隐私的侵犯公开邀请欺诈。

Google Pixel 3和“快速”感应充电 

Ron Amadeo,在Ars Technica写作:

For some unexplained reason, Google is locking out third-party Qi chargers from reaching the highest charging speeds on the Pixel 3. Third-party chargers are capped to a pokey 5W charging speedIf you want 10 watts of wireless charging, Google hopes you will invest in its outrageously priced Pixel Stand, which is $79[...]

Regular 10W wireless chargers can be had for around $15-$25, so Google’s $79 Pixel Stand comes at a hefty markupQi is a standard, and a phone should strive to work with every charger. The Qi standard高达15W, so there doesn’t seem to be any reason for Google’s 5W limit.

Amadeo的观点反映了对这一新闻的共识反应 - 这是谷歌的一笔钱,试图让Pixel 3所有者购买谷歌自己的专有充电座也许这是真的但这可能不是真的Google应该支持Qi标准以获得更高的充电速度这一想法是基于Qi标准在技术上很好的假设我认为这根本不是一个安全的假设。

售价79美元的充电座钱对我来说听起来并不像谷歌我认为谷歌更有可能采用专有技术来提高充电速度,因为他们的专有技术比Qi标准规定的10W充电效果更好请记住,他们肯定已经在Pixel 3硬件上工作多年了。

我错了But it seems far more likely to me, and more in character for Google, that they’re not sticking with the Qi standard simply because the standard isn’t good enough — or wasn’t good enough two years ago when they were making engineering decisions for the Pixel 3像齐这样的行业标准就是这样:它们通常很糟糕。

Qi不够好就是为什么Apple的神话AirPower充电板被吹捧为支持Qi标准的基本级别,但在顶部添加了许多专有功能。

To add to the curiosity of it all, the R doesn’t mean much either. Phil Schiller, gingerly gripping a cup of coffee across from me, said the letters Apple uses never stand for something specific. But then his voice softened a little as he started to tell me about what the letters mean to

“I love cars and things that go fast, and R and S are both letters used to denote sport cars that are really extra special,” he said with a smile.

Sources tell the Erik Wemple Blog that the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal and The Post have each sunk resources into confirming the story, only to come up empty-handed[...]

最好的新闻业有助于逆向工程Though no news organization may ever match the recentNew York Times investigation of Trump family finances, for instance, the newspaper published documents, cited sources and described entities with a public footprint“Fear,” the recent book on the dysfunction of the Trump White House, starts with the story of a top official removing a trade document from the president’s desk, an account supported by an image of the purloined paper.

Bloomberg, on the other hand, gives readers virtually no road map for reproducing its scoop, which helps to explain why competitors have whiffed in their efforts to corroborate itThe relentlessness of the denials and doubts from companies and government officials obligate Bloomberg to add the sort of proof that will make believers of its skepticsAssign more reporters to the story, re-interview sources, ask for photos and emailsShould it fail in this effort, it’ll need to retract the entire thing.

The Verge:'中国如何从iPhone中扯下并重塑Android' 

我非常喜欢Sam Byford对中国手机制造商定制的基于Android的操作系统的深入了解:

Many experienced Android users in the West who try out Chinese phones, including reviewers here at The Verge, often find themselves unable to get over an immediate stumbling block: the softwareFor the unfamiliar, Chinese phone software can be garish, heavy-handed, and quite unlike anything installed on phones that are popular outside of AsiaIf there’s anything that’s going to turn you off thebrand-new Huawei Mate 20 Pro, for example — unsubstantiated Cold War-esque paranoia aside — it’s容易成为软件。

But for the last year-plus, I’ve used almost every major Chinese phone extensively, traveled to the country several times, and met with dozens of people at its biggest phone manufacturersThis experience hasn’t altogether stopped me from feeling that most Chinese phone companies have a long way to go in many areas of software developmentNo one has a great answer for why everyone copies the iPhone camera app so embarrassinglyBut I have learned a lot about the design principles behind many of these phones, and — as you ought to expect — there does tend to be a method behind what some may assume to be madness.

Byford makes a compelling case that these Android derivatives — Xiaomi’s MIUI, Vivo’s Funtouch OS (real name, I swear), Oppo’s ColorOS, and Huawei’s EMUI, just to name some of them — are best thought of as Android-based OSes, not mere “skins” atop Google’s canonical Android实际上没有规范的Android了,因为谷歌出现在其像素上的操作系统不适用于其他手机制造商。

而这些中国公司都绝对不会羞辱iOS:

As for the camera apps, it’s really incredible how similar the vast majority are — both to each other and to AppleJudging by the accuracy and specificity of the rip-offs, the camera app from iOS 7 has a serious claim to being one of the most influential software designs of the past decadeJust look at the picture aboveXiaomi wins an extremely low number of points for putting the modes in a lowercase blue fontBut otherwise, only Huawei has succeeded in creating a genuinely new camera app design, which happens to be very goodI consider it penance for the company’s egregious and barely functional rip-off of the iOS share sheet.

Oculus联合创始人Brendan Iribe离开Facebook 

杰米·费尔特姆,

Oculus co-founder Brendan Iribe, the company’s first and only CEO, is parting ways with parent company Facebook.

在Facebook上的一篇文章Iribe noted he would be taking his “first real break” in over 20 years, though didn’t provide a reason for his departure.

我想知道有多久John Carmack会持续?

我打算在Oculus Quest推出后继续留在Facebook。

Quest是399美元的独立(不需要PC或手机)VR耳机定于2019年春季

AWS首席执行官Andy Jassy:'彭博应撤回' 

亚马逊网络服务首席执行官Andy Jassy在Twitter上:

@tim_cook是对的Bloomberg story is wrong about Amazon, too. They offered no proof, story kept changing, and showed no interest in our answers unless we could validate their theoriesReporters got played or took liberties布隆伯格应该撤回。

如果你想体验彭博社对苹果和亚马逊的抗议的态度,看看这个视频从故事最初出版后的第二天开始,来自彭博电视台该故事的合着者乔丹·罗伯逊(Jordan Robertson)说:

In addition, there is no consumer data that is alleged to have been stolenThis attack was about long term access to sensitive networks因此,按照这种逻辑,公司是required to disclose this information, so there’s no advantage for these companies in confirming this reporting.

这表明他们对亚马逊和苹果公司的粗暴,毫不含糊的否认态度表示不屑一顾他们没有让他们停下来,而是把它吹走了。

我认为亚马逊和苹果有很大的损失 - 他们的可信度如果他们想要隐藏某些东西,无论是出于宣传还是出于国家安全的原因(或两者兼而有之),在不冒信誉的情况下这样做的方法是根本不发表评论亚马逊和苹果都反而强烈否认这个故事的真实性。

在特朗普政府统治下,“跨性别”可以被定义为存在 

埃里卡L.Green,Katie Benner和Robert Pear:

特朗普政府正在考虑将性别狭隘地定义为出生时由生殖器决定的一种生物的,不可改变的状况,这是政府在联邦民权法下推翻对变性人的认可和保护的最大动作。

不必要的残忍,与人口趋势脱节这可能与今天特朗普的基地有关,但是随着这些逆行政策,共和党正在挖掘自己可能永远不会爬出的深洞,因为年轻一代接管美国选民在今天的孩子中,对变性人的支持 - 不仅仅是合法的,而是社会的 - 是基石直接的仇恨政策既不会被遗忘,也不会被宽恕。

'如何投票' 

Demi Adejuyigbe关于如何民主的简短教训。

Jony Ive关于Apple Watch和Big Tech的责任 

尼古拉斯福克斯为英国“金融时报”采访了Ive:

“I think we have been lulled into this sense that people will accept new products and services very quickly, and I don’t believe that’s true at all,” he says“Very often, so much of what a product ends up being able to do isn’t what you initially thought. If you’re creating something new, it is inevitable there will be consequences that were not foreseen — some that will be great, and then there are those that aren’t as positiveThere is a responsibility to try and predict as many of the consequences as possible and I think you have a moral responsibility to try to understand, try to mitigate those that you didn’t predict.”

“If you genuinely have a concern for humanity, you will be preoccupied with trying to understand the implications, the consequences of creating something that hasn’t existed beforeI think it’s part of the culture at Apple to believe that there is a responsibility that doesn’t end when you ship a product.” As he speaks, his face rearranges itself into a troubled frown“It keeps me awake.”
