Apple Unveils iWork For iCloud For Creating Documents In A Browser [WWDC 2013]

Were you beginning to think that iWork was dead? Fear not. Today Apple announced iWork for iCloud, its answer to cloud-based document creation in the browser. Also, new versions of the three existing iWork apps are coming later this year.

Instead of needing a standalone app, iWork for iCloud allows you to create, edit, and manage documents entirely in a browser, much like Google Docs and Drive. That means easy document transferring between Macs and PCs with iCloud syncing in the background.

iWork for iCloud supports Pages, Numbers, and Keynote in Safari, Chrome, and yes, even Internet Explorer. So you’ll be able to edit a Keynote document on Windows 8 now. Cool?

Apple is making iWork for iCloud available as a developer preview today.

(Story developing. Check back for updates.)

Microsoft Is Becoming Increasingly Desperate For Apple To Make iTunes For Windows 8

There’s no denying that iTunes for Windows is one of the most important projects Apple has ever done. It allowed Apple to sell iPods, then iPhones, and then iPads (as well as billions of dollars worth of movies, books and music) to owners of Windows PCs at a time when the iOS ecosystem was much more tethered to the desktop than it is today.

But iTunes on Windows isn’t quite as important as it used to be, especially now that the iPad is king and Windows 8 is here, which has cratered PC sales thanks to the general confusion around its new “Metro” UI.

Any surprise, then, that Microsoft’s having a hard time convincing Apple to update iTunes for Windows 8?

iTunes, of course, already technically works on Windows 8, but not in Windows RT, the ARM flavor of Microsoft’s latest operating system that runs on tablets like the Microsoft Surface. If you have Windows 8 on a regular machine, iTunes will work in Windows 8 desktop mode… but it’s a sub-optimal experience, and brings you screeching-and-crashing out of Windows 8′s much-ballyhooed modern Metro UI.

Yet Apple is seemingly making no steps to sizably update Windows 8, prompting Microsoft CFO Tami Reller to openly complain:

You shouldn’t expect an iTunes app on Windows 8 any time soon. iTunes is in high demand. The welcome mat has been laid out. It’s not for lack of trying.

“Not for lack of trying.” I’m sure: iTunes is apparently one of the most searched for apps in the Windows 8 store… where it can’t be found.

It’s not surprising. Mac sales are about the only PC sales these days that aren’t completely declining. Why waste time on the massive undertaking of creating a Metro iTunes app, or an ARM-based iTunes, when Apple can just ignore Windows 8 entirely in favor of the Mac? God knows that’s what PC users as a whole are doing these days.

Is Google Now Heading To The Mac?

Google has begun integrating its notification center into Chromium for Mac, paving the way for Google Now for OS X. The Chrome OS feature was first ported to Chromium and then Chrome Canary for Windows back in March, but this is the first time it has been spotted on Mac.

The notification center makes way for Google Now for OS X, and allows Chrome users to receive updates for things like weather, sports scores, flight updates and more on their desktop. It comes just weeks after Google Now made its debut on iOS inside the official Google Search app.

The notification center was first spotted by developer and Google Chromium evangelist François Beaufort, who said in a Google+ post, “Mac users will be happy to know that rich notifications are being implemented on Mac.”

Beaufort also notes, however, that the feature is still “under heavy development,” which suggests it’ll be some time yet before it’s made available to the public. You can try it out if you have Chromium installed on your Mac by following Beaufort’s steps.

As for Google Now, official support is still limited to mobile devices running Android and iOS at the moment. It is available for testing on Chrome OS and Windows, as previous leaks have shown, but the server URL required to activate it is currently being kept secret.

J.P. Morgan: The ‘Budget’ iPhone Would Kill Samsung’s U.S. Smartphone Marketshare In 12 Months

We’ve been talking a lot about the budget iPhone in recent months, mostly in relation to the emerging market (where the vast majority of the remaining smartphone growth is expected to happen in the next five years), but here’s a question: even if Apple, as they are rumored to do, release their first plastic iPhone since the iPhone 3GS, how are they going to price it low enough to actually penetrate third-world countries where the cost of the phone might be equal to someone’s salary for the month? Especially while maintaining Apple’s customary profit margins?

The truth is, it’s almost impossible to imagine Apple being able — or interested! — in doing any such thing. Current rumor pegs the “budget” iPhone as basically an iPhone 5 with a colorful plastic shell. If those rumors are true, that’s not really a budget phone: it’s a mid-range. It has to be if Apple wants to make money off of it.

Slowly but surely, that’s the realization dawning on some people on Wall Street. The “budget” iPhone isn’t going to be budget at all. And Apple’s going to make buttloads off of it.

As John Paczkowski over at All Things D notes, Apple has a history of pricing its budget devices well beyond the consensus on what the device “needs” to be priced at to be competitive. The iPad mini launched at $329, when analysts said it needed to launch at $249 to compete with the likes of the Kindle Fire and Nexus 7. The iPad mini is now the most popular 7-inch tablet in the world. Likewse, the iPod nano launched at $199, when analysts said it needed to cost half that to compete with cheapie MP3 players.

So Apple has a history of pricing its budget devices well above the competition. Likewise, Apple has never really made a low-end device. The Mac mini might be the cheapest Mac around, but it costs twice what an entry-level Windows PC costs. Even the venerable iPod shuffle has a shocking amount of polish put into its industrial design, and costs about twice what other cheapie MP3 players (with twice the memory!) cost.

This is the line of thinking currently being pursued by Gokul Hariharan and Mark Moskowitz over at J.P. Morgan. Apple doesn’t make budget products, because the profit is too low and there are too many compromises, but it does make mid-range products… and Apple could make a lot of money releasing a mid-range iPhone priced low enough to draw-in budget consumers and first-time smartphone buyers.

Currently Samsung dominates this segment ($200-500 price range) with 35+ percent market share. … We believe Apple could take 20-25 percent of this market in the next 12 months (from almost no market share currently), if it prices a lower-priced product at $350-400 levels.”

In other words, if Apple released a mid-range iPhone that cost $200-$500 without subsidies, it would within a year put the hurt on Samsung. Within a couple of years, it might kill the threat of Samsung’s Galaxy range of devices all together.

And if you think about it, doesn’t a plastic color iPhone sound like a mid-range device? Look at the colorful phones we’re seeing hit the market, like Nokia’s Lumia series. These are all mid-range devices. Apple’s building a colorful iPhone that will appeal to a whole new range of consumers, just like the colorful iPod nano did. And as we’ve already seen, that’s a winning strategy.

This Chart Proves Microsoft’s Worst Nightmare Has Come True

Want to know why Steve Ballmer wakes up in a sweat at night, screaming at the shadows and clutching his hogshead-sized heart? Look at this chart of year-over-year growth rates of Windows PCs since the iPad came out, put together by the ever nuanced Horace Dediu at Asymco. When the iPad debuted, it immediately killed the PC industry as we know it.

In fact, as Dediu makes clear later in his analysis, Microsoft’s doing so poorly in the PC market right now that even though the Surface was a flop, it’s still accounting for a third of all Windows revenues. Absolutely mind boggling.

Jawbone Up’s New Platform Lets Third-Party Apps Work With Your Wristband

Jawbone has today launched a new platform for iOS that allows third-party apps to work with your Up wristband. The API is called the Up Platform, and provides access to all of your fitness data, including steps, calories, and distance traveled.

The Up Platform has already been integrated into ten iOS apps, including IFTTT, LoseIt, Maxwell Health, MapMyFitness, MyFitnessPal, Notch, RunKeeper, Sleepio, Wello, and Withings.

Until now, Jawbone’s Up wristband has only been compatible with its own official app, but thanks to the new Up Platform, that’s no longer the case. Your fitness data can now be accessed by third-party apps, allowing you to use your Up with your favorite services — providing they decide to support it, of course.

It also means that you can use other data to supplement that collected by your Up wristband. For example, Jawbone’s app doesn’t allow you to track your weight, but the Wi-Fi scales compatible with the Withings app do, so you can bring the two together.

The API is available only to a select group of Jawbone partners at the moment, but it’s thought that this won’t always be the case.

Jawbone also announced today that it has acquired BodyMedia, a company that builds fitness trackers that have previously competed with the Up. BodyMedia’s trackers, however, are specifically for users who wish to lose weight, and they currently require a $60 per year subscription.

They do track a lot more data than the up, including skin temperature, sweat, and ambient temperature. It’s believed that Jawbone may incorporate some of this technology into the Up, but the company hasn’t yet disclosed how the acquisition is part of its future plans.

Apple And Samsung Return To Court For Round Two This November

Apple and Samsung will again go head to head in court this November after presiding Judge Lucy Koh called for a new trial to recalculate the damages awarded by a jury last August. The move comes after Judge Koh cut $450.5 million from the $1.05 billion originally awarded to Apple due to uncertainty over the jury’s findings.

The jury awarded Apple one damages figure for all 14 Samsung devices involved in the trial, but some of the handsets had infringed more patents than others. As a result of this, Judge Koh deducted $450.5 million from Apple’s settlement and called for another trial to redetermine this amount at a later today.

That trial has now been scheduled for November 12.

Earlier today, however, Judge Koh returned $40.5 million to Apple over an AT&T version of the Galaxy S II, which was originally thought to have been calculated using an incorrect time frame. Apple is only entitled to damages from the date it notified Samsung of possible patent infringement, while this particular device went on sale months after that.

Apple wasn’t successful in securing damages against a bunch of other Samsung devices, however.

Apple had requested for the new trial to be put on hold following concerns that two of its patents involved in the case may be invalid. Judge Koh rejected that request, but she did specify that Samsung is entitled to request a stay on damages related to those two patents — one of which covers Apple’s “rubber band” feature.

Prepare yourself for another heated courtroom battle this November, then, folks.
