The Apple TV remote has yet another alternate option that includes buttons

Universal Electronics Inc. (UEI) has introduced its version of the notoriously unpopular Apple TV remote “specifically developed and designed” for cable, satellite, and MVPD (multichannel video program distributor) customers, the company announced.

The remote uses Bluetooth low energy or infrared to connect with the box, has a microphone to speak commands to Siri, and its universal remote function allows control of TVs and audio devices from any brand or manufacturer. It has backlit keys, which activate via an ambient light sensor, a button to flip through channels, and a mute button, according to UEI.

“We’re excited that customers worldwide will soon be able to enjoy this new remote, designed specifically for the growing number of MVPDs offering Apple TV 4K to their subscribers,” said Paul Arling, CEO of Universal Electronics, in a statement.

Apple, others seek to obscure sensitive data in Google antitrust suit

Apple and a number of major tech companies asked a federal judge overseeing the Google antitrust case to hide sensitive information from prying eyes — namely Google.

The companies asked Judge Amit Mehta of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia to designate certain data used in the Justice Department case as “highly confidential,” reports Reuters.

A protective order would disallow Google employees from viewing private business contracts and other sensitive information that might be divulged in the process of trying the lawsuit. Apple, for example, already disclosed terms of its relationship with Google and expects to be asked for additional information.

The government could request documents pertaining to deals with competing search engines, including internal discussions at Apple regarding negotiation tactics, the report said. Access to Apple’s data could put the iPhone maker at a disadvantage when forging future deals with Google.

Xbox Series X Controller Support for Apple Devices in the Works

(Image: Microsoft)

Mobile gamers on iOS can soon add another gamepad option to their repertoire: the Xbox Series X controller.

MacRumors reports that both Apple and Microsoft are currently working on bringing support for the gamepad to Apple devices. While many iOS titles offer perfectly serviceable on-screen touch controls, there’s no doubt that adding a controller into the mix for some games, like shooters or battle royales, can improve them tenfold.

An eagle-eyed Redditor named /u/cvfunstuff pointed out that Xbox Series X Controller Compatibility had just appeared on an official Apple Support page. The page in question outlines how to connect wireless game controllers to your Apple device, though the Xbox Series X controller isn’t listed under the “See which wireless controllers are supported” heading.

What /u/cvfunstuff called attention to was the short blurb below the list: “Microsoft and Apple are working together to bring compatibility for the Xbox Series

What’s Next For Entertainment Marketing

At the Nashville-based entertainment marketing agency FlyteVu, co-founder Laura Hutfless has a box seat for the shift from physical to digital campaign execution. I recently asked her to share her thoughts on these changes.

Paul Talbot: What sort of significant entertainment marketing innovations has the pandemic triggered?

Laura Hutfless:  Simply put, the pandemic accelerated the industry’s journey to digital and innovative tech solutions. The industry has quickly adopted livestreaming, augmented reality, virtual reality, virtual meet and greets and more. The shift was always inevitable, but Covid has officially transported the industry to a digital-first economy.

Talbot: Can we gauge to what extent the Covid pandemic has put the brakes on entertainment marketing?

Hutfless:  Traditional forms of marketing are not delivering the same results due to shifts in content consumption and the obstacles presented by experiential marketing. Brands are looking for innovative ways to reach consumers. The Covid pandemic has

The latest teardown from iFixit shows how huge the iPhone 12 Pro Max camera is

The iPhone 12 Pro Max is Apple’s biggest iPhone ever, with a 6.7-inch display that boasts a camera system our reviewer called “one of the most confident smartphone cameras.” In its latest teardown, iFixit shows how big this impressive camera actually is compared to other iPhones.

The primary wide-angle sensor “dwarfs the iPhone 12’s sensor,” iFixit says, coming in around 47 percent larger. But it has the same 12 MP resolution as the smaller model. The 12 Pro Max’s sensor-shift image stabilization system— found on most DSLR cameras— adds bulk to the large main camera, iFixit found.

The 12 Pro Max’s L-shaped battery is the largest among all current iPhone models, weighing in at 14.13Wh, compared to the 8.57Wh in the mini and the 10.78 Wh in the 12 and 12 Pro. But iFixit notes that’s actually slightly smaller than
