how apple tv improves sports viewing

The 2018 FIFA World Cup is now well underway, and we can expect a lot of twists and turns in the sports action between now and July 15, when the final match will take place. Nonetheless, you might not be twisting and turning many wires, given the increasingly seamless and innovative ways in which we can watch sports on our Apple devices and the particular appeal of cord-cutting. The Apple TV is becoming especially central to this transformation. INCREASINGLY APPLE-TISING LIVE SPORTS CONTENT Even back in the days when Steve Jobs’ intended belittling of the Apple TV as a “hobby” was fresh in many Apple fans’ memories, this set-top box remained a veritable go-to device for sports consumption. Before Apple ushered in the modern generation of the Apple TV with its significantly…

instagram unveils new video service in challenge to youtube

Facebook’s Instagram service is loosening its restraints on video in an attempt to lure younger viewers away from YouTube when they’re looking for something to watch on their smartphones. The expansion announced this week, dubbed IGTV, will increase Instagram’s video time limit from one minute to 10 minutes for most users. Accounts with large audiences will be able to go as long as an hour. Video will be available through Instagram or a new app called IGTV. The video will eventually give Facebook more opportunities to sell advertising. It’s the latest instance in which Instagram has ripped a page from a rival’s playbook in an effort to preserve its status as a cool place for young people to share and view content. In this case, Instagram is mimicking Google’s YouTube. Before, Facebook and…

despite new law, nebraska may not see self-driving cars soon

Nebraska lawmakers may have cleared the way for companies to test self-driving vehicles with a law passed earlier this year, but don’t expect a large number to hit the streets anytime soon. Although industry officials say Nebraska has positioned itself well to embrace the technology, getting it fully launched will likely take longer than the public expects even in states with friendly laws. “Motorists headed out to visit Grand Island from Lincoln aren’t going to be sharing the road with driverless trucks anytime soon,” said Kent Grisham, president of the Nebraska Trucking Association. “They are coming someday, but there’s still a lot to be worked out.” Lawmakers and Gov. Pete Ricketts approved a measure in April that allows autonomous vehicles to operate on public roads as long as the vehicle includes safety…

univ. of alabama students can use id card on apple watch

No more ID cards for University of Alabama students with an Apple Watch or iPhone. Apple said in a statement said only have to raise their wrist to gain access to places including the library, dorms and events, pay for snacks, laundry and dinners around campus, the Tuscaloosa News reported. The software was presented this week as students with an Apple Watch or iPhone can add their ID cards to the wallet for usage this fall. UA president Stewart Bell spoke more in depth about the pilot program at a board meeting last week. The new software is cost free. “We have actually been working on this project for some time a little bit under the cloak of secrecy,” Bell said. “It is a next-generation technology program that will allow our students to…

macos mojave: a giant leap for mac

THE FUTURE OF THE MAC When Tim Cook took to the stage at the Worldwide Developers Conference earlier this month, it was iOS 12 that critics and attendees were most looking forward to. Announcing support for a more enhanced Siri, app redesigns and a renewed focus on privacy and device usage, iOS 12 is set to become the most powerful mobile operating system when it launches later in the year. Apple Watch users were similarly treated, with new workout methods and Walkie Talkie feature on watchOS 5 raising cheers from the crowds, but it was the announcement of macOS Mojave that got everybody talking. Bringing with it a brand new Dark Mode, a suite of new apps ported over from iOS, and a bunch of functionality designed with professional users in mind,…

supreme court to take up iphone app lawsuit

The Supreme Court will consider whether the purchasers of iPhone apps can sue Apple over allegations it has an illegal monopoly on the sale of the apps. The court said that it will take a case from the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit, which ruled in January that the purchasers of iPhone apps could sue Apple. Their lawsuit says that when a customer buys an app the price includes a 30 percent markup that goes to Apple. Apple had argued that it did not sell apps, but instead acted as an intermediary used by the app developers. Apple won initially in a lower court which dismissed the lawsuit.…
