Monday Highlights: Apple appears ready to set another legacy feature, the headphone jack, on the road to extinction; but Michael Gartenberg reminds us these are just rumors and "we don't know jack about the next iPhone"; buckle up for more patent battles in China as local companies line up for a slice of the money pie; Apple to ask before our data is harvested in iOS 10 and macOS Sierra; Macworld tutorial on securely setting up new Mac, and how to use the new Tabs feature in macOS Sierra; talk show in France loses power, iPhones to the rescue!; Cozmo is a mix of Wall-E and Eva; Google rumored to build own phones to take on iPhone; purported iPhone 7 rear case leaked, shows new camera design, and we'll likely see a darker space black color, as well; iPad Insight offers first impressions of 9.7" iPad Pro, and ZDNet tests new USB stick that boasts 16x speed increase.
