Good news for Mac gamers: Feral Interactive announced the release of Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II for Mac and Linux. This real-time strategy powerhouse is set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe (obviously), where you are a Force Commander of the Blood Ravens Chapter defending the Imperium of Man.

Samsung slammed by Chinese state TV for recall...

CCTV said a video apology Samsung issued to U.S. consumers, along with various replacement options and compensation, was in stark contrast to its treatment of those in China, where the company issued a brief statement saying most phones didn’t need to be replaced. “Samsung’s discriminatory policy has caused discontent from Chinese consumers,” it said.

Like I said yesterday: Samsung should have issued a total recall of all devices. They would have avoided issues like this and the fading consumer trust.

Researchers Ask Federal Court To Unseal Years of...

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Ars Technica: Two lawyers and legal researchers based at Stanford University have formally asked a federal court in San Francisco to unseal numerous records of surveillance-related cases, as a way to better understand how authorities seek such powers from judges. This courthouse is responsible for the entire Northern District of California, which includes the region where tech companies such as Twitter, Apple, and Google, are based. According to the petition, Jennifer Granick and Riana Pfefferkorn were partly inspired by a number of high-profile privacy cases that have unfolded in recent years, ranging from Lavabit to Apple's battle with the Department of Justice. In their 45-page petition, they specifically say that they don't need all sealed surveillance records, simply those that should have been unsealed -- which, unfortunately, doesn't always happen automatically. The researchers wrote in their Wednesday filing: "Most surveillance...

Apple and Ireland are preparing appeals to argue that European Union (EU) competition investigators unfairly kept them in the dark during a probe that ended in a record 13 billion-euro ($14.6 billion) tax bill, reports Bloomberg, quoting unnamed “people with knowledge of their case.”

The Cupertino, California-based company and the nation contend that the EU neglected to flag a shift in emphasis in the investigation, according to the people, who spoke on condition of anonymity. Bloomberg says that EU Competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager’s team insists there was never a U-turn and that it kept Apple and Ireland up to date with developments from the time the probe was opened in 2014 through Aug. 30 -- when Ireland was ordered to claw back the proceeds of alleged sweetheart tax deals.

Well, my collection is only half-vast, but over the next month or so I'll be providing you with photos of some of the shirts, hats, and other garb I've accumulated over the years.

The incredible Apple Logo Long Sleeve Tee. I must have another.

Today we have a basic black long-sleeve t-shirt that I picked up at the former Apple Company Store at the 1 Infinite Loop headquarters building. I'm beginning to think I'll have to head to the new store soon as this one is beginning to get a little worn out from overuse.

People are still lining up to snag a brand new iPhone 7, but that won’t stop anyone from speculating about next year’s iPhone. Why so early? Well, 2017 marks the iPhone’s 10th birthday, so Apple is reportedly gearing up to make its anniversary edition extra special.

We’ll keep track of the latest rumors and how plausible they are, and we’ll put them in one spot (this one!) so you can bookmark this link and just pop on over when you want to read the latest.

If you passed on the iPhone 7 to wait for the iPhone 8—or whatever name Apple decides to use—it sounds like next year’s phone could be the design refresh you were waiting for. Just don't expect the headphone jack to return.

Hack iOS 10, Get $1.5 Million

Reader Trailrunner7 writes: The stakes in the vulnerability acquisition and bug bounty game have just gone up several notches, with a well-known security startup now offering $1.5 million for a remote jailbreak in iOS 10.The payout was put on the table Thursday by Zerodium, a company that buys vulnerabilities and exploits for high-value target platforms and applications. The company has a set of standing prices for the information it will buy, which includes bugs and exploits for iOS, Android, Flash, Windows, and the major browsers, and the top tier of that list has been $500,000 for an iOS jailbreak. But that all changed on Thursday when Zerodium announced that the company has tripled the standing price for iOS to $1.5 million.

Review: IK Multimedia iRig HD 2

IK Multimedia's iRig HD 2 is a sequel to the company's iRig HD, released three years ago. Where the 2013 iRig HD built on the company's original analog iRig with a direct high-quality digital interface, iRig HD 2 kicks it up a notch further, adding integrated amp and headphone output jacks — something that iPhone 7 users should particularly appreciate with the elimination of the iPhone's built-in 3.5mm jack. iRig HD 2 also doubles the original sampling rate of its predecessor, taking it up to an impressive 96kHz, with the same high quality 24-bit A/D conversion.{/exp:char_limit}

Phoneys (currently) features stickers that look like iMessage bubbles, effectively allowing users to replace messages from their friends with some funny alternative text.

The app hit #1 Top Paid in the iMessage App Store. Despite getting approved initially, Apple says that the store does not accept “prank apps” and the current form of the stickers violate Apple trademarks …

Angry customer uses steel ball to smash Apple Store...

This probably isn’t the best way to have your customer support complaints addressed.

On Friday, a disgruntled customer walked into the Apple Store in Dijon, France and began destroying various products with a steel ball of the kind that’s used in the classic French game Pétanque. The steel ball is hollow but still weighs about 2.5 pounds.

He is heard talking about “his consumer’s right” and citing that he’s unhappy with how Apple handled his support case. Minutes later, security turns up and tries to escort him away — but not without him trying to escape.

In the end, the team managed to stop him and have police take him into custody after running about 90 feet in one direction.

A bumper fall crop of Apple Campus 2 construction...

The end of September is upon us, and that means that the drone pilots have been out cruising over Cupertino to show the progress at Apple Campus 2. The entire place is really coming together -- solar panels cover 40% of the "ring" roof, there's only a tiny gap that doesn't have a roof covering yet, trees are starting to be planted, a lot fewer cranes are in action at the site, and so on. Maybe it's just me, though, it looks like it still has at least 6 months to go before people are in that building...

Anyway, here are three videos that look at the construction. All three are shot in 4K, so if you have a machine capable of displaying the UHD video stream, be sure to go to full-screen and enjoy! First up, one by Matthew Roberts:

Hacking Elections Is Easy, Study Finds


It's no longer a question whether hackers will influence the 2016 elections in the United States -- only how much they'll be able to sway them. Leaked emails already have cost a Democratic Party chairperson her job, and the FBI last month issued a flash warning that foreign cyberadversaries had breached two state election databases. Those two states -- most likely Arizona and Illinois -- aren't alone in having their voter information compromised.

After buying the working exploits, the company then sells them to its customers, which include major technology, finance, and defense corporations, as well as government agencies.

12% of U.S. consumers surveyed by Bank of America Merrill Lynch say they intend to purchase AirPods, apparently on the strength of Apple’s marketing, given that few people have actually seen and tried them out.

This is a very bullish sign for Apple, says BAML. “12% of the US installed base could lead to up to an incremental $3bn in revenue,” writes the analysts.

The company’s founder Chaouki Bekrar, explained that the higher bounty is in direct response to the improvements that Apple has made in iOS 10 that have made iOS devices “much harder to exploit than their previous versions.” Notably, Zerodium also increased its bounty for…

Apple reportedly wants Sharp to provide OLED...

Apple is negotiating with Sharp to secure organic LED displays for the next generation of iPhones and iPads, reports Bloomberg, quoting an unnamed “person familiar with the matter.” Any OLED supply agreement would depend on the Osaka-based company’s output capacity.

Bloomberg says the discussions stem from Apple’s desire to increase the number of suppliers for OLED screens. So far the only product Apple makers with an OLED is the Apple Watch. LG provides the smartwatch displays. iPhones and iPads use LCD technology, which offers lower manufacturing costs than OLED screens.

LCDs use a backlight behind the screen to emit light, and act as a valve allowing different amounts of this light to create the colors and images on the display. OLED is made up of many tiny LEDs, each emitting their own light and colors. They don’t...

Study: the use of fitness trackers may hamper weight...

A new study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association indicates that fitness trackers — a category that certainly includes the Apple Watch Series 2 — could hamper your ability to meet your weight loss goals.

The study, which took place between 2010 and 2014, included 471 randomized participants (74.5% completed the study) which were separated into two main groups. One group manually documented their physical activity at the end of the day while the other one wore automatic activity trackers which did the documentation for them.

“Among young adults with a BMI between 25 and less than 40, the addition of a wearable technology device to a standard behavioral intervention resulted in less weight loss over 24 months” according to a summary of the study. “Devices that monitor and provide feedback on physical activity may not offer an advantage over standard behavioral weight loss...

New iPhone 7 Case Brings Back the Headphone Jack

Apple removed the headphone jack in the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, forcing users to use either Bluetooth, the Lightning port or included Lightning to 3.5mm headphone jack adaptor in order to listen to music through headphones. However, one company took it upon themselves to create an iPhone 7 case with a built-in 3.5mm headphone jack. The company is called Fuze and they recently launched an Indiegogo campaign that promises to bring the audio port back to the iPhone 7. The Next Web reports: To achieve this, the company is taking Apple's Lightning to 3.5mm adapter and building it straight into a case, where you can plug your headphones with "no dongles, no adapters, no problems." In addition to the audio port, the Fuze Case will also serve as a battery pack as it adds 2,400mAh of extra battery life to the iPhone 7 and 3,600mAh to the 7 Plus. It will be available in five different colors including white, black, gold, rose gold and blue. The case is currently available for $49 to "...

The new Search Ads went into beta immediately after the announcement and were made available to developers.

Ads are available through an auction system, with one ad displayed to customers on each search result page. Ads are clearly marked and ad content is the same content that’s available on the...

How to change watch faces in watchOS 3 on your Apple...

You can change the watch faces in watchOS 3 right from your Apple Watch — although it’s easier to do it on your iPhone (but we’ll cover that on Monday).

In watchOS 3, you can cycle through your watch faces by swiping left and right from the edges of the face on your Apple Watch. Before, you had to force press he current face, then swipe.

However, you can still summon up the old interface for adjusting faces by force-pressing on the current watch face. It offers some customization options. The number of options available depends on the face itself.

Conveniently, this also allows to switch faces on the fly. For instance, you can start the day with the fun Minnie Mouse face, then switch (by swiping) to the Activity face when you start to work out.

Black hat security company Zerodium – which seeks to find vulnerabilities in iOS and Android to sell to corporate and government clients – has increased its maximum bounty for zero-day iOS 10 exploits to $1.5M. It previously offered $1M for iOS 9 vulnerabilities.

A zero-day vulnerability is one not yet known to the developer, so companies have zero days to prepare for exploits. The company’s founder told Arstechnica that the increased reward reflected the improved security in the latest version of iOS. He also explained why the company pays far more for iOS vulnerabilities than Android ones …

You can give your iPhone or iPad its own elegant perch with Twelve South's classy HiRise, which is available in a $39.99 standard model and a $59.9 deluxe edition. It's a stylish pedestal of silver brushed metal that works exclusively with the Apple Lightning cable and is small enough to sit anywhere in your home or office. 

The metal pedestal elevates an iOS device for FaceTime chats, hands-free calls, desktop charging, viewing apps and streaming music. It does this without blocking your speakers, mic or headphone ports as some docks do. 

The HiRise 2 works with just about any case, including Twelve South's own BookBook. Its sliding rear support and multiple height clips support all these cases and more. Or you can use it with no case at all. 

The HiRise 2 has a footprint that’s one-third smaller than the original, saving space on your bedside or desk. It’s twice as heavy for added stability with larger devices. It comes in two new colors besides silver: “...

When will we be able to merge Apple iDs?

We're still not able to merge Apple IDs. Is it really that hard forApple to make this happen?

Back in the olden days of 2012, TUAW reader Glenn Thorpe nailed the problem when he wrote: "My Apple ID account which I use to download apps cannot be used for FaceTime nor Messages. I had to create new AppleIDs for both of these applications. The frustrating issue is that I now have three AppleIDs to manage and I am not sure of what impact this will have when I buy apps or try to perform other transactions."

There were rumors at on point that Apple was working on a solution. However, Apple's official word is still: "Apple IDs cannot be merged. You should use your preferred Apple ID from now on, but you can still access your purchased items such as music, movies, or software using your other Apple IDs."

An Apple ID is the email address and password you use as a login for just about everything you do with Apple, including using iCloud to store your content,...

Zerodium also doubled, to $200,000, the amount it will pay for attacks that exploit previously unknown vulnerabilities in Google's competing Android operating system, and the group raised the amount for so-called zeroday exploits in Adobe's Flash media player to $80,000 from $50,000.
