Microsoft May Be Planning Price Increases for Windows 10 - ExtremeTech
Based on reports from customers who have been contacted by system builders, Microsoft is planning to change the way it licenses Windows 10 going forward. Instead of letting the OEM decide which SKUs get which version, it will be based on the processor inside the machine. For a system with four or fewer cores, a Windows license is expected to increase $70. For a machine with more than four cores, Microsoft is looking at a $230 price increase for the manufacturer.

Galaxy Note 9 Will Boast Feature We Wish iPhone X Had
What's interesting about his claim, however, is that Samsung won't be able to get the fingerprint sensor running in the Galaxy S9, which could make its debut as early as late-February. Instead, it appears Samsung will need more time to get it to work and will therefore wait until the Galaxy Note 9 launches next August or September in order to offer the long-awaited feature.

Don't Let the Sprint/T-Mobile Zombie Merger Rise Again | Sascha Segan |
According to CNBC, T-Mobile and Sprint are once again considering a merger. The combined company would be run by T-Mobile CEO John Legere, but Sprint's majority owner, Softbank, would have a major interest. This is a horrible idea. It would lead to higher prices, worse service, and massive job cuts.

When did Apple begin to think different about the iPhone Home button? | Computerworld
Most iPhone users touch the Home button dozens of times each day, but Apple plans to lose it in iPhone 8. When did Apple begin to think different about Home?
Apple is now expected to lose the Home button on the iPhone 8, replacing it with gesture controls. The decision sounded quite shocking, but on closer reflection, Apple appears to have been hedging its bets on the future of the Home button for longer than we thought.

Truth in Jest? | Hazlitt
"This is why C.K.’s failure to address these allegations is not a good enough reason for his fans to avoid the difficult, uncomfortable issues they bring up. If you like this guy’s work because of its ethical spine, and yet you can keep enjoying it exactly the same way once these allegations are introduced—without any traces of concern or creeping dread or cognitive dissonance or confusion or frustration—then maybe it’s worth thinking about why they’re so easy for you to ignore. This is the exact same idea that runs under C.K.’s work like a third rail, makes him seem so insightful: the moments when an issue is small enough for you to register it and then turn away comfortably are the moments when it probably deserves your closest scrutiny."  louis_ck  comedian  abuse  assault  rumor  tig_notaro  2017  2010s  empathy  emma_healey  truth  privilege  betrayal  jen_kirkman  culture  silence  tv  writing  essay

iPhone X: Software leak appears to confirm name, features, and specs | Ars Technica
Meanwhile, iPhone 8 is an updated iPhone 7 with a glass back, and wireless charging.
Apple's latest and greatest iPhone is called the iPhone X, according to information pulled from a leaked "Gold Master" of iOS 11, the operating system said to power the new phone.
The same software leak also reveals the existence of the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, which are based on a similar design to the existing iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. According to 9to5Mac, which was one of two blogs able to download iOS 11 before it was pulled from Apple's servers, the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus feature a faster processor, wireless charging, and a new glass back panel.

Daring Fireball: WSJ: No Touch ID in D22
The Wall Street Journal, under the byline “Yoko Kubota in Tokyo, Tripp Mickle in San Francisco, and Takashi Mochizuki in Tokyo”...
By this account, it sounds like Apple is rushing D22 to market, before it’s actually good enough to ship. But it really depends who the Journal’s sources are. With two of the bylined reporters in Tokyo, it seems very possible the sources are in the supply chain, not at Apple.
It all comes down to how good the facial recognition is. If it’s as fast, reliable, trustworthy, and convenient as Touch ID, then omitting Touch ID is a legitimate design choice. Forward progress on biometrics. If it’s worse than Touch ID in any meaningful way, it’s an inexcusable mistake.

iPhone (Pro?) Size Comparisons and Naming — MacSparky
Redmond Pie took a mock-up iPhone (Pro/Edition/8) and compared it to existing and past iPhones. Most interesting to me is the picture below pitting it against a 7 Plus.
For existing plus-sized customers, the phone would get smaller and have fewer pixels. However, with the edge-to-edge display, it appears you’ll get more vertical space, which is what I want most anyway. This product hasn’t even been announced yet and I’m already lusting for one.

Google rumored to buy HTC's phone arm, and it makes total sense
If the HTC acquisition actually goes through, things could be quite different from Google's Motorola acquisition. The most obvious change is that Google is already producing its own branded phones this time and desperately needs something to set its phones apart from competitors.

Samsung is sole supplier of costly 'iPhone 8' OLED, putting Apple in 'urgent need' of alternatives
According to Kuo, "Apple is in urgent need of finding a second source of OLED." Any diversity in the supply chain will take time, however, as competing display makers need to not only ramp up OLED output, but also master manufacturing of the next-generation display technology to meet Apple's quality control standards.
