Apple’s AiPort firmware puts the whack on KRACK

Apple has updated its updated its existing AirPort devices with firmware updates that patches vulnerabilities to KRACK attacks that allow a malicious hacker to bypass WPA2 encryption on Wi-Fi networks and make a user's data easy to view. 

KRACK (Key Reinstallation AttaCK) can expose information shared on Wi-Fi networks, even over connections “secured” with data encryption and passwords. The vulnerability breaks WPA 2, the strongest and most common form of encryption used to protect data on home and business Wi-Fi networks.

Both firmware versions can be downloaded and installed via Apple's AirPort Utility on Macs or iOS devices. Version 7.7.9 is for 802.11ac hardware; the 7.6.9 version is available for 802.11n devices.

Apple patent allows your media and gaming...

Apple has been granted a patent (number 9,839,851) for “allowing media and gaming environments to effectively interact and/or affect each other.” Basically, it allows games on an Apple device — Mac, iPhone, or iPad —  to use and share data from your music and photo libraries.

Per the patent, a gaming environment can be affected based on one or more aspects of a media environment. For example, gaming content and/or the gaming experience provided and/or suggested to an individual can be tailored based on his/her musical profile effectively obtained from the media environment associated with the individual. 

Similarly, a media environment can be affected by a gaming environment. By way of example, musical content provided and/or suggested to an individual can be based on his/her gaming profile. 

In addition, an open media-gaming environment can be provided where various media and gaming components can be integrated together. For instance, an individual can...

The iMac Pro features the T2 chip, a bit of Apple...

Caleb Sasser, the co-founder of Panic, which makes macOS and iOS apps, has tweeted that the iMac Pro features some new Apple custom silicon: the T2 chip, which makes it the most secure Mac desktop ever.

It integrates previously discrete components such as the SMC, ISP for the camera, audio control, SSD control, a secure enclave, and a hardware encryption engine.

“This new chip means storage encryption keys pass from the secure enclave to the hardware encryption engine in-chip — your key never leaves the chip.,” Sasser tweets. “And, they it allows for hardware verification of OS, kernel, boot loader, firmware, etc. (This can be disabled…)”

Apple first started using secure enclave chips with the iPhone starting in 2013 with the iPhone 5s. However, this is the first time similar technology is being used on the iMac.

Fishball 360: An inexpensive way to shoot 360°...

Although I'm not a fan of crowdfunding projects right now (I've got well over $700 invested in two campaigns that may never ship...), I saw one today that caught my attention because it's inexpensive and it has to do with my fascination with 360° spherical VR photography and videography. It has the fun name "Fishball 360" and it's at 107 percent of its funding goal on Indiegogo with 11 days to go.

Unlike many of the VR cameras out there, the Fishball 360 requires no charging, no memory cards, no pairing and no firmware updates. The Fishball 360 clips onto the iPhone 7/7 Plus, 8/8 Plus or iPhone X, and then uses a proprietary system of fisheye lenses and mirrors to create a 360° capture. A free app then lets the user film photos and videos as usual...but with the ability to view them with a VR headset (not included) later.

Carbon Copy Cloner 5.0.5 - Easy-to-use backup/...

Carbon Copy Cloner backups are better than ordinary backups. Suppose the unthinkable happens while you're under deadline to finish a project: your Mac is unresponsive and all you hear is an ominous, repetitive clicking noise coming from its hard drive.

With Carbon Copy Cloner, your data and the operating system's data are all preserved on a bootable volume, ready for production at a moment's notice. When disaster strikes, simply boot from your backup and get back to using your Mac. At your convenience, replace the failed hard drive and then let CCC restore the OS, your data and your settings directly from the backup in one easy step.

Any backup application can save your stuff. A CCC bootable backup will save your productivity too!

Review: Shinola Canfield On-Ear Headphones

Writing reviews of consumer electronics can get a bit predictable. Cellphones, TVs, and even headphones from established manufacturers will receive iterative updates and only occasionally manifest as something truly new. Occasionally a lifestyle brand puts their name on a headphone, but you can always tell when their involvement doesn't go any deeper than the logo. Sometimes, however, a company can surprise us. Recently, Detroit-based Shinola — a watch and leather goods manufacturer named after a shoe polish company — released a series of headphones. We got a chance to try their Canfield On-Ear; they're quite good. {/exp:char_limit}

For some people, iPad Pro is a replacement for their computer. Not that you throw away your computer. People don't often do that.Schiller added that, for many customers, the iPad Pro becomes their primary computing device, especially while traveling.But that it becomes your primary computing device.

Ortelius is a full-featured vector drawing application especially for map design. Draw directly with features such as roads, rivers, coastlines, buildings, symbols and contours. Ortelius is known for its unique "connectable tracks" and expert stacked styles that make drawing tedious map features easy. Every object supports attribute data that can be referenced by text labels, and everything can be directly drawn and positioned simply by dragging and dropping. Though Ortelius is emphatically not a GIS, it does have limited support for importing shapefiles (refer to documentation for best results; re-projection is not supported). Powerful and extensive text features give you a fine degree of control over labelling. Create your own styles and symbols or use any of the many hundreds built-in. Layers and layer groups keep your work organized.

Marques Brownlee and Jonathan Morrison have shared hands-on videos of the iMac Pro, which Apple said is available to order on December 14.

Brownlee spent the past week with the iMac Pro, using it to create his hands-on video itself with Final Cut Pro X, and found it to be a super capable yet quiet machine with a beautiful display and a stealthy space gray enclosure.

He said the iMac Pro's biggest weakness is its lack of upgradeability, but he said its expensive $4,999 starting price is actually fair for the hardware included, and he priced out a PC with mostly equivalent tech specs at $5,100.

Brownlee benchmarked the 10-core iMac Pro on Geekbench and recorded a multi-core score of 37,417, which is up to 45 percent...

[VIDEO] Marques Brownlee has had the new iMac Pro for about a week. In the video embedded in the main Loop post, he shows it off, shares his first impressions.

If you are in the market, this is absolutely worth your time.

Couple of notes here:

  • Important to note that the new iMac Pro is not user upgradable. So if you are ordering, future proof best you can.

  • Marques priced out a home built PC using the iMac Pro parts (or similarly specced parts where the actual parts are not yet available) and came up with a price of $5100. Comparing that to the iMac Pro base price of $4999, my take is that the iMac Pro is fairly priced.

  • The fact that I cannot upgrade over time is an issue for me, though I suspect iFixit will eventually sell a kit to get me inside and 3rd parties will sell parts to upgrade. Eventually.

  • The iMac Pro is very quiet, runs cool. That’s impressive, given the high end workstation grade...

A pen clip for your Apple Pencil

Patrick Lucas Austin, LifeHacker:

There’s a pretty straightforward reason you should attach a clip to your Apple Pencil: it lets you treat it like a traditional writing implement. The Apple Pencil’s completely rounded design means it is more prone to roll around your desk, or right off your table and onto the ground. In addition, adding a clip lets you, of course, clip it anywhere you’d stick a regular pen.

Have an Apple Pencil? Check out this clip for the Fisher Space Pen. $2, plus shipping (maybe buy a few at this price), and stick one on your Apple Pencil.

Tips for Successful Email Marketing Campaigns

My latest Inc.com post, on running successful email marketing campaigns, is available at https://www.inc.com/charles-edge/10-email-marketing-campaign-tips-to-keep-subscribers-attract-new-ones.html. It starts like this:

It seems like every time I turn on the radio, there’s an ad for an email marketing automation tool. Constant Contact, Mailchimp, Emma, iContact and even Salesforce make it pretty easy for small and mid-size businesses to automate beautiful emails. Or for larger organizations, there are offerings like Marketo, Adobe Marketing Cloud and Eloqua.

But while the ads make it sound like these campaigns write themselves, they don’t.

Email marketing is a delicate business. On one hand, you don’t want to be an evil spammer. On the other, email is an efficient way to stay in touch with potential and existing customers.

You’ll soon be able to watch almost all NFL games...

Brian Fung, Washington Post:

The news was announced Monday by Verizon as it sealed a deal with the NFL for an estimated $2 billion over the next five years. The move highlights the telecom giant’s pivot toward digital media and online advertising amid massive changes in the TV and Internet industries.

Monday’s deal makes it possible for Verizon to hook customers of even rival Internet providers with must-see content hosted on websites that Verizon owns — such as AOL, Yahoo, Yahoo Sports and go90, the telecom giant’s proprietary online video app.

The agreement between Verizon and the NFL will let football fans stream their local teams’ games, as well as nationally televised games and league highlights. Games that air on Mondays, Thursdays and Sundays are covered under the deal. Even the Super Bowl will be widely streamed to anyone with an Internet connection, Verizon said.

Even if you have no interest in the NFL, this is an important move. Verizon has...

From the T3 interview with Phil Schiller, starting with the creation of iPhone X:

“At the time, at the beginning, it seemed almost impossible. Not just almost. It seemed impossible. And to pull off what feels impossible and make it possible – and not only that, but just something we love using – is just a great achievement.

“Clearly there was a point in the process where we had to commit to the fact that it would be a full top-to-bottom screen on the front with no home button, which means you’re counting on Face ID working as we’d hope, and being as good.

“That’s an exciting moment, when you have to sort of… the old saying: ‘Burn the boats. Leave the past behind, and commit.’ Knowing that the team was willing to make that gamble was a key point early enough in the process..

And:

“Most people are comfortable with it within minutes – 30 minutes, whatever. It’s not the kind of thing you have to live with for a week or two to get used to.

Why Apple’s acquisition of Shazam is so important

Michael Simon, Macworld:

Shazam’s main strength is music identification, and that fits well into Apple’s current strategy. It’s not just Siri on our phones: AirPods, HomePod, and Apple Watch could benefit from Shazam’s uncanny ability to name that tune.

And:

On the new Pixel phones, Google has implemented a feature that displays the name of a song playing nearby even if Assistant hasn’t been asked. It’s a neat feature that’s all done locally, and I use far more often than I thought I would. A similar feature would be great on the iPhone, and with Shazam’s massive library at Apple’s disposal it would be far superior to Google’s.

And:

We will already be able to ask Siri to play things like the most popular song in 1986, but Shazam could amplify its knowledge considerably. It would be great to tap your AirPods and ask “Play the song that goes like this …” or “Play that Ed Sheeran song about Ireland.” Shazam might not be able to do that now, but the...

Apple turns on app preorders in App Store

An anonymous reader shares a report: A Reddit post over the weekend has drawn a flurry of interest after an iPhone 6s owner reported that a battery replacement significantly increased the device's performance running iOS 11. The ensuing discussion thread, also picked up by readers in the MacRumors forum, has led to speculation that Apple intentionally slows down older phones to retain a full day's charge if the battery has degraded over time. According to TeckFire, the author of the original Reddit post, their iPhone had been very slow after updating to iOS 11, especially compared to their brother's iPhone 6 Plus, so they decided to do some research with GeekBench and battery life apps, and ended up replacing the battery.

The reasoning is that streaming music is on the rise (Apple Music reportedly has 30 million subscribers with that number growing), while song downloads are on the decline (an estimated -25% or -30% last year). Also, according to Digital Music, folks are confused and don’t understand the difference between Apple Music, iTunes, iTunes Match, iTunes Cloud, etc.

In September MEC Resources, which is wholly owned by a Native American tribe, sued Apple, saying the iPad violated its patent (number 6,137,390) for “inductors with minimized EMI effect and the method of manufacturing the same.” MEC Resources is owned by the Mandan, Hidatsa, and Arikara Nation, also known as the Three Affiliated Tribe.

Apple’s App Store has a new feature that allows developers to make new iOS 11 apps available for pre-order up to 90 days before release.

Developers can now track the performance of app pre-orders in Sales and Trends. Sales and Trends displays the number of ordered, canceled, and net pre-orders (net represents ordered minus canceled). Once a pre-order is released for download to the customer, it's reflected as a unit. For paid apps, upon successful billing, downloads are released and the associated sales from the pre-order appear.

Before an app is released, users can view the app's product page and order the app in advance. Once it’s released, users will be notified and the app will automatically download to their iPhone or iPad. You'll be charged before downloading for paid apps.

Reusing your old computer is better than recycling

By Jeff Graber

We all know that it is preferable to reduce, reuse, and recycle when it comes to keeping trash out of landfills. However, you may not have known that it is much more preferable to repurpose or reuse your old materials as opposed to even recycling. This is especially true when it comes to electronics, like cell phones or old computers. In this article, we will compare reuse versus recycling. We will also look at how to reuse or repurpose your old computer.

Recycle versus reuse

Before you just decide to recycle your Mac, wait. To properly recycle your Mac, you will probably have to take it to a special recycling center. You may even be charged. Macs and other electronics are not like plastics or glass: they can’t just be easily recycled. Due to lots of mixed materials and parts, they have to be disposed of properly. Recycling also takes energy and time to process all the materials. Instead, consider reuse of your...

GymKit surfaces in Manhattan following launches in...

This could lead to something nifty.

Apple’s GymKit platform seems to have made its first debut in the United States. After initially surfacing in Australia and London, GymKit was seen as Life Time Athletic at Sky, a “luxury health club” in Manhattan. GymKit is also expected to be incorporated at the Equinox line of clubs beginning in 2018. Life Time Athletic says it plans to expand to over 130 locations soon and is currently using equipment from TechnoGym.

The GymKit platform pairs an Apple Watch with workout equipment such as treadmills, ellipticals, and stationary bikes. Once paired, the user has access to more accurate information such as speed and incline.

The setup process is described as follows:

GymKit works with a simple tap-to-pair process: Tapping a ready piece of equipment starts the process, and the Apple Watch brings up a confirmation screen.

With treadmills, it asks if you want to record a walk or a run. From there, everything on...

Google launches two experimental photography apps...

Today, we’re launching the first installment of a series of photography appsperiments: usable and useful mobile photography experiences built on experimental technology. Our “appsperimental” approach was inspired in part by Motion Stills, an app developed by researchers at Google that converts short videos into cinemagraphs and time lapses using experimental stabilization and rendering technologies. Our appsperiments replicate this approach by building on other technologies in development at Google. They rely on object recognition, person segmentation, stylization algorithms, efficient image encoding and decoding technologies, and perhaps most importantly, fun!

I know many photographers love to try new things, so you may want to check these out.

Apple removes app after MyEtherWallet complaint

The statement was a response to a tweet by someone identified as @ChrisLundkvist, who posted an image of the $4.99 app, dubbed MyEtherWallet, showing it was the third-most popular finance app in Apple’s App Store.

Good for Apple for removing the app so quickly. Clearly the developer tried to sell an app based on the reputation of another company. It’s awful when people do that.

Apple Buys Shazam To Boost Apple Music

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Bloomberg: Apple agreed to acquire music-identification service Shazam, taking ownership of one of the first apps to demonstrate the power of the iPhone, recognizing songs after hearing just a few bars of a tune. Terms of the deal weren't disclosed, but a person familiar with the situation said Apple is paying about $400 million for the U.K.-based startup. That would be one of Apple's largest acquisitions ever, approaching the size of its 1996 purchase of Next Computer Inc. which brought co-founder Steve Jobs back to the company. That transaction would be worth more than $600 million in today's dollars. The Shazam app uses the microphone on a smartphone or computer to identify almost any song playing nearby, then points users to places they can listen to it in future, such as Apple Music or Google's YouTube.

Earlier this month, we visited the New York Audio Show. We hoped we'd find some audio gear to write about on iLounge, but didn't find much that would be relevant to normal people — though the stereo systems on display at the NYAS were amazing, many of them cost more than some people's homes. There are worse ways to spend a Saturday, for sure, but we found something interesting in the most unexpected place: on our way out the door, we noticed a small booth showing what appeared to be Bluetooth headphones by a company called Hooke. We stopped by to chat with the founder about his product, and we're happy we did. The Hooke Verse ended up being one of the most unique headphones we've ever used — it's not just a headphone, it's a head-mounted microphone array.{/exp:char_limit}

A second video, "Adapts to Your Face," was previously available on Apple's Canadian YouTube channel. It's designed to highlight the machine learning techniques used to allow Face ID to adapt to beards, hats, sunglasses, and other facial changes.

The third video, "Introducing Portrait Lighting," demonstrates the Portrait Lighting feature that's available on the iPhone X. Portrait lighting is designed to allow users to adjust the lighting in an image using depth mapping techniques, and it is also available on iPhone 8 Plus.

Printing it took about 19 hours, and the final model stands 6.6 inches (17 cm). You can find a free file on Thingiverse.

Google Releases Tool To Help iPhone Hackers

Lorenzo Franceschi-Bicchierai, writing for Motherboard: Google has released a powerful tool that can help security researchers hack and find bugs in iOS 11.1.2, a very recent version of the iPhone operating system. The exploit is the work of Ian Beer, one of the most prolific iOS bug hunters, and a member of Google Project Zero, which works to find bugs in all types of software, including that not made by Google. Beer released the tool Monday, which he says should work for "all devices." The proof of concept works only for those devices he tested -- iPhone 7, 6s and iPod touch 6G -- "but adding more support should be easy," he wrote. Last week, Beer caused a stir among the community of hackers who hack on the iPhone -- also traditionally known as jailbreakers -- by announcing that he was about to publish an exploit for iOS 11.1.2. Researchers reacted with excitement as they realized the tool would make jailbreaking and security research much easier.

After rumors started swirling around a few days ago, Apple has confirmed to BuzzFeed News that it is indeed buying the music-recognition app Shazam. The acquisition price was not revealed, but is reportedly around $400 million.

Apple confirmed the acquisition in a statement provided to MacRumors and several other media outlets today:We are thrilled that Shazam and its talented team will be joining Apple. Since the launch of the App Store, Shazam has...

In late November patently Apple posted a report titled "Samsung won't be able to Copy Apple's 3D Face ID in Time for Galaxy S9 Smartphone in 2018." Today we're learning that in order to blur the line and sidestep not having 3D facial recognition like Apple's iPhone X, Samsung will announce they're advancing their Iris recognition feature for their next smartphone debuting in early 2018.

External Link: Ai.Type Keyboard for iOS and Android...

The third-party keyboard company Ai.Type has inadvertently leaked data from over 31 million iOS and Android users, including names, phone numbers, and information associated with social media profiles. Unfortunately, because many third-party keyboards need full access to your data, it’s not particularly surprising that one of them would have been hacked or, as in this case, accidentally revealed user information. If you use Ai.Type, you might want to delete it now, and if you rely instead on other third-party keyboards to which you’ve granted full access, consider the potential problems if they were to leak data as well.

20 Constants In Software Development

My latest Huffington Post article, called 20 Constants In Software Development is up. It starts out like this:

There are so many things I wish people had told me when I was in school, or earlier in my career. Things that aren’t variable between organizations you work with, or even teams you work in. So I thought I’d jot a few down of these for software development teams (if only to prove that no, despite what product managers say, you aren’t crazy). So here goes:

  1. A project will never have enough people to build all the features you want. Period.
  2. Less features means fewer defects.
  3. As a software project nears completion the amount of work remaining rises in proportion to how many hacks and shortcuts you took.

Fake 'MyEtherWallet' App Rises to #3 Spot...

An unofficial iOS app for MyEtherWallet.com rose to the top of the App Store over the weekend, nabbing the third spot in the Finance category after being on the storefront for a little over a week (via TechCrunch). MyEtherWallet.com is a popular service made for storing cryptocurrencies but it doesn't have an official iOS app, so the company tweeted out a warning for users to not be fooled by the "MyEtherWallet" iOS app, as well as asking for Apple to remove it from the App Store.

At the time of writing, MyEtherWallet still remains at #3 on the App Store's Finance chart. The app lists its developer as Nam Le, who has two other iOS apps -- "Panda Warrior: Kung Fu Awesomeness" and "Mr. Beard: Icehole Fishermans" -- and one Apple Watch app called "Wrist Count."...

∞ Two opposing headlines, Woz, and the iPhone X

Apple founder Steve Wozniak was in Australia to speak at the Pivot Summit in Geelong, Victoria. Woz was asked his feelings about the iPhone X. What spun out of that short talk was a series of headlines, like:

“Woz Slams The iPhone X, Confirms Google Is Taking Advantage Of Consumers”, from ChannelNews, and “Apple iPhone X not what Steve Wozniak wants” from the The Australian.

At the same time, 9to5Mac ran this take on the exact same event:

Speaking at the Pivot Summit in Geelong, Victoria today, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak shared a few new tidbits about his experience with the iPhone X so far and his thoughts on Face ID vs. Touch ID. Woz also offered up a few anecdotes about his years working with Steve Jobs. Wozniak is one of several speakers at the one day conference focused on providing insight about emerging technology.
