There’s a rumor spreading that AirPods and other wireless headphones cause cancer, but the truth is more complicated

Apple's AirPods and other wireless headphones emit small amounts of radio frequency radiation. So do cell phones. Scientists still aren't sure the dose is enough to harm us, and the studies they've done so far suggest that radiation from cell phones (far greater than what bluetooth devices emit) isn't leading to more cancer. The evidence we have so far suggests that consumers should probably be more worried about jamming something noisy into their ear canal every day, rather than the radiation...

Why we should trust Apple and Google more than our governments

When I was younger, I was taught that the ridges and patterns found on my fingertips are so unique, that no other person in the world has them. I can only assume you were also told that your fingertips are unique too — and not in a millennial sort of unique where everyone is so unique that they deserve a participation medal — actually unique. And it’s true. As I grew older, however, things got a little darker. Unique fingertips also meant that if someone got a hold of them, they could potentiall...

Apple came up with a clever new idea that could be the future of wireless charging (AAPL)

Apple submitted a patent that shows how desktop computers, like an iMac, could transmit wireless power to nearby devices, like mice and keyboards.  The technology would prevent you having to charge your nearby and compatible peripherals at all.  As great as this seems, it's still just a patent that, like many patents, may never see the light of day.  Apple is looking into technology that can transmit wireless power from its computers or displays to nearby devices, like a wireless keyboard or ...

How to turn your Apple Watch on and off, and force-restart it for troubleshooting

Flood of 4K James Bond Leaks Further Point To iTunes Breach

AmiMoJo writes: All 24 movies from the iTunes exclusive 4K "James Bond Collection" have leaked online. This is further evidence to suggest that pirates have found a way to decrypt 4K source files from the iTunes store. How, exactly, remains a mystery. While most regular releases can be ripped or decrypted nowadays, 4K content remains a challenge to breach. Up until a few days ago, pirate sites had never seen a decrypted 4K download from Apple's video platform. However, a flurry of recent leaks, ...

Meredith d'Ambrosio in 1981

One of my regrets about my college years in Boston during the 1970s is not going to see Meredith d'Ambrosio perform around town. Back then, I was either at the Harvard "Coop" buying jazz LPs, at Paul's Mall and the Jazz Workshop at night during the week and at discos on the weekends. Soon after I started JazzWax in 2007, I made up for lost time, and Meredith and I have been pals ever since. Yesterday, I spent much of the afternoon with Meredith's Another Time. Recorded in 1981 at the Beacon Hi...
