      🔥😡🔥 Covenant Kodi Addon Repository Shuts Down 16th November 2017 🔥😡🔥   11/16/2017

      Covenant Kodi Addon Repository Shuts Down After MPAA Threatens Kodi Developer JSergio123 Millions of Covenant, Bennu and DeathStreams users will be displeased to hear that the Colossus repository has been shut down! We don’t have much information as of yet, but from what we’ve heard jsergio123 was threatened by the MPAA earlier today. We haven’t heard from him directly, but different sources have been saying things about what’s happening. He was told to immediately cease Kodi addon development. In case you don’t know who jsergio123 is, he’s been into Kodi addon development for quite some time now, developing different addons over the years. He was also part of the Colossus group, but as far as we have been told, he wasn’t actually contributing to the development of allegedly infringing Kodiaddons such as Covenant, Bennu, DeathStreams and Sportie. This is going to be bad news for Covenant, Bennu and DeathStreams users unless someone steps up to the plate and takes over development. Since the Colossal repository has been deleted, users will have to install a new repository in order to continue to receive updates in the event that another developers takes over Covenant development. It should be noted that none of the Colossus developers nor addons were part of TV ADDONS since we relaunched our site in August. Whether or not he was doing anything wrong, the threat of legal action from the MPAA would be enough for anyone to call it a day. He wasn’t making any money from his development, and no mere mortal can afford a costly legal fight with the big day MPAA. He would go bankrupt fighting to continue developing addons for which he didn’t benefit. We haven’t heard anything about the rest of the Colossal repository developers, but the MPAA identifying one of their own seems to have been enough to scare Echo Coder into deleting his GitHub repositories and Twitter account as well. As far as we have been told, only jsergio123 received a cease and desist, in which they held him responsible for everything in the Colossal repo, including Covenant, Bennu, DeathStreams and Sportie. As for URLResolver development, TV ADDONS has been distributing URLResolver from our community repository since our return in August. We plan on continuing to provide updates, although we expect things to be slowed a bit by jsergio123’s sudden retirement. We really hope that new developers will come forward and contribute Kodi addon code at our URLResolver Development GitHub page. We wish jsergio123 the best in all his future endeavours and thank him for tweeting his endorsement for TV ADDONS earlier today. TV ADDONS is prepared to fight this fight, to ensure that copyright law isn’t expanded. The law is on our side, but our opponents are fierce and lawyers don’t work for free. If you’d like to contribute to our legal battle, please feel free to do so via our donation page on TVAddons   Thank You  And Have A Great Day.

      🔥🔥🔥THE ANSWER TO WHY MOST KODI ADDONS NOT WORKING AT THE MOMENT🔥🔥🔥   11/17/2017

      🔥🔥🔥THE ANSWER TO WHY MOST KODI ADDONS NOT WORKING AT THE MOMENT🔥🔥🔥   THE IMPORTANCE OF URLResolver EXPLAINED WHY MOST THINGS NOT WORKING AT THE MOMENT The shutdown of the Colossus repo and the two other developers’ addons is undoubtedly a severe blow to the Kodi scene. But, while many casual users might be familiar with Colossus and Bennu, most won’t appreciate the importance of URLResolver. Most recently maintained by jsergio12 and distributed via a well know add-on distributor, this is an extremely important addon. Here’s how it works. When Kodi plays content using addons, whether that’s a movie or TV show, links to that content have to be obtained (scraped) from sites hosting it. This means that all addons would ordinarily have to have their own code in order to find the URLs where that content can be obtained. It can be a different process for every video host, a big job for any developer. That’s where URLResolver comes in. This clever tool helps other addons access content by resolving video hosting site URLs to enable related content to be played in Kodi. URLResolver is a really important tool but since it comes packaged with addons that rely on it, most users won’t even know it’s already on their system. They’ll definitely miss it when it’s gone, since among other things it was utilized by the extremely popular Covenant addon. All may not be lost though, since the well know add-on distributor indicate they’ll try to keep URLResolver alive. The well know add-on distributor has been distributing URLResolver from our community repository since our return in August. They say they plan on continuing to provide updates, although we expect things to be slowed a bit by jsergio123’s sudden retirement,” the site said.   Thank You  And Have A Great Day.

  4. KGI: About 3 million iPhone X units will be available for launch, production improving in November With iPhone 8 now on sale, all eyes are on the upcoming iPhone X. A morning report from KGI reiterates production issues we’ve been hearing about the iPhone X, indicating that only 2-3 million units will be shipped for sale before the launch on November 3rd (preorders open a week from today). KGI points to supply shortages for several components including circuit boards for the iPhone X antenna and wide angle camera, and the depth-sensing Infrared dot projector. We’ve seen many publications suggest that Apple suppliers are facing difficulties ramping production of the iPhone X. In many aspects, the phone features radical redesigned parts which have not been mass-produced at scale before, so poor initial yields are somewhat to be expected. Several reports in the past have said the 3D sensor production is the reason for the holdup; today’s KGI report mentions the dot projector but says there are other components in even shorter supply to be aware of. Ming-Chi Kuo says the ‘biggest hurdle’ for iPhone X shipments is actually the flexible printed circuit board for the antenna system. He says special materials, processes and stringent tests are required for Apple to sign off on produced iPhone X antenna components, with much higher specifications than iPhone 8 or other models. One supplier, Murata, was originally planned to satisfy most of the orders for the antenna PCB but has failed to meet Apple’s requirements. As such, another supplier is now believed to be manufacturing all antenna boards for the first few months. The wide angle camera circuit board is considered the next biggest bottleneck in the report. KGI says that Apple’s camera system for iPhone X uses separate PCBs for the telephoto and wide angle lenses, which is unlike designs from Samsung phones. As such, it appears suppliers have hit issues manufacturing the ‘unique’ boards at volume. Regarding the dot projector, KGI says previous problems relating to detection of human faces in certain conditions have now been resolved and shipments are set to ramp up significantly. Given that Apple usually sells more than ten million phones in opening weekend sales alone, availability of just 2-3 million units for the launch is unlikely to satisfy customer demand for iPhone X. As such, be prepared for the Apple Store to quickly go out of stock when the devices go up for sale. Some good news is that KGI believes production of the circuit boards and dot projector will be able to increase drastically across November which should allow Apple to increase iPhone X output quickly after the release. That being said, KGI has dropped estimates for initial fourth quarter shipments from 30-35 million to 25-30 million units. In the first quarter of 2018, though, KGI believes shipments could increase by as much as 50%. Thank You 🙂 And Have A Great Day.

  7. Nvidia launches GeForce Now beta, turns your Mac into a virtual gaming PC First introduced back at CES this past January, Nvidia’s GeForce Now for Mac is available in beta. This service from Nvidia allows Mac users to access PC-only games and offers up strong performance, especially for less powerful Macs. Nvidia’s streaming service GeForce Now first debuted a couple of years ago with the company’s Android tablet, then expanded to its set-top box last year. Now, the service has been expanded to support Macs. Here’s how Nvidia describes its new service for Macs. Our own Ben Schoon went hands on with GeForce Now for Mac at CES and was mostly impressed after demoing Witcher 3 on an iMac and Rise of the Tomb Raider on a MacBook Air. Nvidia is promoting the popular Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds which isn’t available yet for Mac. However, there are many more titles supported including several of the Call of Duty titles, Destiny 2 beta, Diablo III, League of Legends, and Rocket League among others.

  9. Tim Cook describes lessons from Steve Jobs, says ‘focus on the dead’ when it comes to heroes [Video] Tim Cook sat down today at the University of Oxford for an interview at the Saïd Business School along with questions from students. While Cook reiterated answers to some questions that aren’t surprising, there was a particularly surprising nugget of wisdom shared today about heroes… Much like Jony Ive shared recently as a part of his interview at The New Yorker’s Tech Fest, Cook shared some of the most important things that Steve Jobs taught him. One of the most interesting parts of the conversation with Cook had to be his answer to the question about if he has any living heroes. The full interview and Q&A includes some other interesting questions from business students. Cook also shares more optimism for AR when asked about the most exciting new technologies (while interestingly saying “I don’t like our products being used a lot, I like our products amplifying us…”) as well as thoughts on leadership and the responsibility of Apple.
  10. Report: Apple working with LG on foldable iPhones amid heated competition with Samsung We’re still awaiting the first OLED iPhone to ship with the iPhone X in less than a month, and new rumors are surfacing about a future iPhone with a foldable display. According to The Bell (via The Investor), Apple is working with LG and not Samsung to create an iPhone with a foldable OLED panel. The report suggests that Apple’s rivalry with Samsung and concern over leaking may be a deciding factor in choosing suppliers. LG Innotek has also been tasked with creating the rigid flexible printed circuit board that would drive the flexible iPhone. The report also claims Apple is considering investing in an LG plant that would produce the flexible OLED displays, which seems likely. Apple currently relies on Samsung as its sole supplier of OLED displays used in the upcoming iPhone X, although the company is working on adding LG to the mix in an effort to increase production and lower cost. As for flexible OLED panels, the report notes that Samsung may introduce its first smartphone to use the technology as soon as next year while Apple doesn’t expect to bring the technology into production through LG until 2020 which may mean a 2021 launch. Similar reports about Apple working with LG on the foldable OLED panel surfaced a year ago. Note that the foldable display technology is different from the current bendable OLED technology which supports pressure sensitive input but not actual folding. Apple has also been said to be considering Japan Display for the future iPhone technology, although we’re still very early in the development process for such a product. At any rate, the latest report is just another example of the rocky reliance and relationship Apple has with Samsung. Thank You 🙂 And Have A Great Day. The Mixdoctor Team Member of koditalk.org

  16. UK retailers call for £30 contactless card limit to be increased, but police advise against The UK got quite a head-start on the U.S. when it comes to contactless payments, the first contactless cards launched back in 2007. But concerns about fraud meant that contactless transactions were initially limited to £20 ($26) before a modest increase to £30 ($39) … Worries about fraud were driven by the complete lack of any security check on any individual transaction, allowing a thief to easily use a stolen card. Card companies do, however, carry out other checks – like looking for an unusual number of consecutive transactions. A recent survey found that more than half of UK retailers would like to see the payment limit increased, but a police commissioner has advised against it, reports London’s Evening Standard. While Apple Pay does effectively mimick a contactless card transaction, it offers far greater security. Transactions have to be authorized by Touch ID on the iPhone, or by an Apple Watch which has been continuously worn since unlocked with a passcode. Additionally, no actual card details are supplied to the terminal, replaced by a one-time code. For that reason, many payment transactions now recognize Apple Pay transactions and dispense with the usual £30 limit. We first saw unlimited transactions more than a year ago, and I have experienced it myself on many occasions. It looks like Apple Pay may retain that advantage for some time yet.

  17. KGI: LTE Apple Watch likely using eSIM, no phone calling or Android support expected Reliable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities has an update to the recent LTE Apple Watch reportthat includes a few details about what to expect. Kuo expects cellular models of the Apple Watch will use an eSIM and not a physical SIM card as a space-saving measure, and the cellular connection may only be used for data transfer and not phone call features. Apple first started using its embedded Apple SIM in the original 9.7-inch iPad Pro last year, although it retained the physical SIM tray as well for carriers who do not support the Apple SIM. KGI already forecasted what Bloomberg first reported: the cellular Apple Watch will feature LTE connectivity but offer no 3G connection which will limit it to certain markets and countries. Today KGI adds that it believes Apple could choose Qualcomm over Intel for the baseband chip as the former company offers a smaller, low power solution. The other new development is Kuo expects Apple could omit phone call capabilities from the LTE model of the new Apple Watch. You can already make phone calls from the Apple Watch when it’s paired with a nearby iPhone and there’s no technical limitation with the implementation, but KGI expects Apple may want to improve the “user experience” of data transmission before enabling voice services. Curiously, the report doesn’t rule out VoIP services like Skype and FaceTime for calling however. Still, this will be a notable setback if the cellular Apple Watch can’t place and receive voice calls. Finally, KGI says it doesn’t believe Apple Watch will gain Android compatibility this year despite the move potentially boosting device sales for the wearable. Kuo cites difficulty providing a good experience between Android and watchOS for not creating an Apple Watch companion app for Android at this time. Some have suggested adding LTE which may make the Apple Watch more independent from the iPhone could be a step toward Android compatibility. KGI has previously reported that Apple will offer both LTE and non-LTE models of the new Apple Watch which is expected to keep the same design with 38mm and 42mm options. If Apple follows tradition, we may see new Apple Watch hardware with LTE introduced sometime next month alongside new iPhones.
  18. 🔥📱🇺🇸 Readers report Apple unofficially offering free repairs on devices 🇺🇸📱🔥 🔥📱🇺🇸 damaged in Hurricane Harvey 🇺🇸📱🔥 Readers in areas affected by Hurricane Harvey are reporting that in at least some cases Apple is offering free repairs to water-damaged devices, as well as those which suffered impact damage during the evacuation. Neither type of damage would normally be covered under warranty. We’ve reached out to Apple, but at present there does not seem to be any company-wide policy in effect, so it seems that this is being done on a case-by-case basis by individual stores – though likely with corporate endorsement … Texas Governor Greg Abbott said that the damage caused by Hurricane Harvey may be worse than that caused by Katrina in New Orleans back in 2005, reports the BBC. The hurricane is known to be responsible for at least 47 deaths, and around 43,000 people forced to evacuate their homes are staying in shelters. Many of the affected areas are still battling with flood water. There is still uncertainty as to how the cost of the damage will be covered. Some insurance policies specifically exclude hurricane damage in areas known to be vulnerable, and there appears to be disagreement between state and federal governments. Governor Abbott said that Congressional authorization for $7.85B in aid was merely a downpayment, while the head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Brock Long has suggested that this should be a state responsibility. Carriers have been offering free service in affected areas, and Apple has donated $2M to relief efforts, as well as encouraging donations via iTunes. It appears that the company may also be trying to give a break to customers hit by the disaster. Thank You And Have A Great Day

  22. An Apple Watch with LTE has the potential to be a true iPhone replacement I’ve always been very skeptical when it comes to Apple Watch. From the start I wasn’t necessarily convinced that I had a need for the device. Its price tag and early user interface bugs quickly wore thin on me and I ultimately found myself going weeks at a time without wearing it or even charging. As I wrote last year, however, watchOS 3 and Apple Watch Series 2 quickly changed my opinion and made Apple’s wearable an integral part of my lifestyle. When people started calling on Apple to add LTE functionality to the Apple Watch, however, I was puzzled. Why does a wearable that’s always connected to the iPhone need LTE? The more I’ve thought about it, though, the more I see the other side of the argument. The perfect Apple Watch is one that has no dependancy on the iPhone, but rather is fully functional wherever you go. Three separate reports have said Apple will add LTE to the Apple Watch this year, one from Bloomberg and two from KGI’s Ming-Chi Kuo. Both have reliable track records, but more than anything, LTE feels like the natural next step for Apple Watch. It currently looks like Apple will sell both WiFi-only and LTE models of the Apple Watch, much like it currently does with the iPad. I’m a huge fan of the new 10.5-inch iPad Pro, but I’ve generally only owned WiFi models of Apple’s tablets due to the fact that anywhere I go with my iPad, I’ll almost certainly have my hotspot-equipped iPhone. Why would I pay extra to both Apple and AT&T for cellular in such a scenario? If I’m carrying a 10.5-inch iPad Pro, why can’t I toss my iPhone in my pocket and be good to go? The Apple Watch argument is a bit different. There are countless instances where I would love to leave my iPhone in the car or at home, but simply can’t due to the possibility of a family emergency or something else that requires an immediate response. With an LTE Apple Watch, however, I could do just that. Leave my iPhone behind, yet stay connected wherever I go. Whether it be out for a hike with the dog, out to dinner, or even just for an “iPhone-free day,” which sounds quite appealing a lot of the time. There’s much more to this argument, though. Apple has to ensure that Apple Watch truly remains fully functional without an iPhone connection. This should include app notifications, calls, SMS messages and iMessages, and more. The whole lot. One missed notification because of a weird forwarding bug completely erases the peace of mind that an LTE Apple Watch provides. However, KGI’s most recent report explained that Apple currently doesn’t plan to offer phone calling via Apple Watch, at least through the carrier. The report didn’t rule out calling through platforms like Skype or FaceTime. Either way, however, this is a huge let down. I hope there will be some sort of technical support for sending notifications for missed calls. For instance, if Apple Watch and iPhone aren’t paired and there’s a call to the iPhone, I should get a notification on Apple Watch telling me and allowing me to return the car with a FaceTime Audio call. There’s also the issue of pricing. The LTE iPad generally costs $130 more than the WiFi-only model, and that big of a price difference isn’t viable for the Apple Watch in my mind. Ideally, the LTE Apple Watch would cost around $50 more than the WiFi model. Unfortunately, I don’t really see anyway around paying carriers more for the LTE data on Apple Watch, either. For instance, T-Mobile currently charges an extra $5 per month for wearable LTE service. While it’s a small amount, it can certainly add up over time and combined with the additional hardware costs, some users might not be willing to take the leap. Furthermore, LTE connectivity shouldn’t come at the expense of other features. If cellular reduces Apple Watch battery by any significant margin, I’ll be incredibly disappointed. If Apple Watch gets any thicker or heavier to house the LTE hardware, I won’t wear it. As you can see, my thoughts on a cellular Apple Watch carry a few contingencies. The biggest, however, is that Apple must make it clear that there are features and use cases for an LTE Apple Watch. If all it enables is support for iMessage, then I’ll have a hard time justifying the added hardware cost as well as the added monthly cost. On the other hand, if the cellular connection can provide a complete user experience that can replace the iPhone, at least for short periods of time, then I am entirely onboard. It comes down to this: I’m fully convinced that the Apple Watch can replace my iPhone for short periods of time, up to as long as a few days. All that’s missing is cellular connectivity, and I really hope Apple gets it right this year. Would you be interested in an LTE Apple Watch? Or would you rather Apple focus on improving other areas of the device? Let’s talk down in the comments. Thank You And Have A Great Day. The Mixdoctor Team Member of koditalk.org
  23. Apple Watch Series 3 enters final testing for end of the year launch Taiwanese-based Quanta Computer, an integral part of Apple’s supply chain as a maker of MacBooks and the Apple Watch, is ramping up to begin producing the Apple Watch Series 3, according to Chinese news outlet Economic Daily. Expected to launch later this year, the report notes that Quanta has entered the final testing phase for the Apple Watch Series 3 and is on the cusp of mass production. The new Apple Watch is expected to ship with both 38mm and 42mm models and look similar to current Apple Watch models, but will also feature an LTE option in order to facilitate a measure of wireless connectivity without needing to rely on a paired iPhone.

  25. Nikkei: HomePod shipments in Q4 2017 likely to be limited at launch A new report out today indicates that the Apple HomePod will likely be limited in quantity when it begins shipping out in the fourth quarter of this year. Inventec Appliances, which is also responsible for manufacturing AirPods, is expected to start with a limited shipment of HomePods that increases into the next year. According to Nikkei Asian Review, Inventec Appliance’s President David Ho told analysts, “We will finally ship the smart home device this year, but its contribution will be fairly limited and hopefully that will improve next year.” Ho’s statement harkens back to the company similarly having to ramp up production to meet the AirPods’ overwhelming demand. A person with “direct knowledge” of Inventec Appliance’s orders told Nikkei that the manufacturing company will split the orders with its rival Hon Hai Precision Industry (Foxconn) in 2018. Even with that split, officials from Inventec Appliances said that the company’s number of smart and connected devices would grow 20%, aligning with their forecast from the beginning of this year. In the meantime, Apple’s “leaked” firmware for the yet-to-be-released HomePod has given us strong indications into the company’s upcoming product details after seemingly confirming the iPhone 8’s notch design and Face ID, the iPhone 8’s Home button, and the HomePod’s LED matrix display Thank You And Have A Great Day.
