|J||In an interview with BUzzfeed Apple senior VP of hardware engineering Dan Riccio explained the removal of the headphone Jack on the iPhone 7 saying “It was fighting for space with camera technologies and processors and battery life. And frankly, when there’s a better, modern solution available, it’s crazy to keep it around.” |
To replace the audio jack Apple created the AirPod ear buds powered by the W1 wireless chip. According to ReCode the W1 wireless chip is Bluetooth with some additional code to allow seamless pairing with the iPhone 7 and to register the earbuds over iCloud with iPads, Apple Watches and Macs. But they should work with non-Apple devices as well.

|J||Yesterday Twitter enabled live video notifications from individual accounts. The subscribe button appears on the an accounts profile page. Subscribers will receive alerts when a Periscope stream goes live.|
However according to BUzzfeed as of today Twitter is killing the button, at least for now.
But at least... Twitter also rolled out new features for Direct Messages adding read receipts, showing who in a direct message has read and responded to it, typing indicators and web link previews.

|J||Alphabet’s Project Wing unit and Chipotle have teamed up to deliver burritos by drone to the students of Virginia Tech. The FAA approved experimental service starts this month and will run just a few weeks. The drones are self-guided hybrid aircraft that will fly like planes but covert to hover like helicopters and use a winch to make their delivery. Human pilots will be on standby to take control to satisfy FAA requirements.||http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2016-09-08/burrito-by-drone-coming-to-campus-in-test-of-alphabet-s-delivery|
|Airbnb introduced policy changes to short term rentals in response to allegations and criticisms of discrimination by hosts. Starting Nov 1st it will ask all users to agree to a “community commitment” to works with others ““regardless of race, religion, national origin, disability, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation or age.” The company will also experiment with reducing the prominence of users photos and accelerate the use of instant bookings.||http://www.nytimes.com/2016/09/09/technology/airbnb-anti-discrimination-rules.html?_r=0|

|Pick of the day:|
|DTNS boss John Clayton in Montana wanted to share his pick of the day with us. He says:|
I wanted to share an incredible combo for cord cutters: a HDHomerun and the Channels app on the Apple TV (or iOS). We have multiple Apple TVs in the house but only one TV had an OTA antenna hooked up to it. Now with this combo I can watch OTA broadcasts on any TV in the house, I don't have to find the TV's remote to do so, and it even supports about a 30-minute buffer for pausing and seeking through live TV!
Channels can be found at https://getchannels.com/. I got the HDHomerun Extend for the onboard transcoder, but I've found it unnecessary on the local network and the cheaper Connect model probably would have worked fine.
Hope you had a good vacation...the show was in good hands while you were out!

|Nik chimes in on yesterday's Apple announcement show. He writes:|
I find it really interesting that Apple quietly killed the solid gold Apple Watch Edition in favour of much cheaper ceramic watch. I think it would be really interesting for one of the Apple rumour folks like Mark Gurman to dig deeper and find out why the presumably highly profitable solid gold watch was killed. There’s surely got to be a great story behind it.
