Friday Highlights: Apple hires Dan Dodge, former BlackBerry developer for autonomous car project, which Jonny Evans theorizes could be a car operating system moreso than an actual car—more in our Apple/Macintosh section; Apple's assertive negotiating style worked against the company in TV negotiations according to the Wall Street Journal; will iPhone SE help revenue as consumers wait for iPhone 7?; Horace Dediu calls iPhone "the most popular product of all time" after Apple sells billionth unit; might China be a much tougher field for Apple than presumed?; Macworld primer on uninstalling Mac apps; CNET feature looks at Apple summer camp for kids; on Bloomberg, Nobel economist Joseph Stiglitz says Apple's Irish profit reporting is fraudulent; £20 purchase refund scam targeted at iTunes users; SlashGear on making the 9.7" iPad Pro work for work; Quartz says Microsoft Pix is a cool app, but thinks we might want to stay with Apple's own camera app; English version of Pangu's iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak available, tutorials from 9to5Mac and Redmond Pie.

  • "Will Apple Car be the new BlackBerry?" ["The claim is that Apple is no longer solely focused on building its own autonomous vehicle, but also on developing an operating system that could be licensed to other auto-makers. It would be very hard for Apple to replace every car in the world with an Apple Car if it doesn't work in partnerships with others – licensing the OS may help, as the Android thing proved."]  Computerworld 6:49 AM
