T-Mobile cracking down on LTE tethered data abusers

Here’s what’s happening: when customers buy our unlimited 4G LTE plan for their smartphones we include a fixed amount of LTE to be used for tethering (using the “Smartphone Mobile HotSpot” feature), at no extra cost, for the occasions when broadband may not be convenient or available. If customers hit that high-speed tethering limit, those tethering speeds slow down. If a customer needs more LTE tethering, they can add-on more. Simple.

However, these violators are going out of their way with all kinds of workarounds to steal more LTE tethered data.

Sounds fair to me.

AKG BX 20 reverb from Universal Audio

Introduced in the late 1960s, the AKG BX 20 reverb was a high-water mark for AKG’s esteemed engineers. An ingenious assembly of mechanical and electronic componentry, the BX 20 offered the glorious depth and color of spring reverb without any of the limitations.

This is so nice—listen to the audio samples on the page. Another great plug-in from Universal Audio.

Raspberry Pi and rPlay: A cheap and fun way to do...

Image via Wikimedia Commons

Perhaps you'd like to mirror your iPad or iPhone screen on your 60-inch HDTV, but you don't want to buy an Apple TV right now because a new one is just around the corner. If you already have one of those $35 all-purpose tiny computing devices called a Raspberry Pi, you're in luck. 

Edyboy12 over at Instructables has written some simple instructions on how to turn your Raspberry Pi into a "receiver" for AirPlay. If you already own a Raspberry Pi, then you're about 90 percent of the way there -- all you need to do is download and install the rPlay app, enter a license key, and then reboot the RPi. It shows up as "rPlay" on your list of AirPlay devices.

Malware infecting jailbroken iPhones stole 225,000...

A newly discovered malware family that preys on jailbroken iPhones has collected login credentials for more than 225,000 Apple accounts, making it one of the largest Apple account compromises to be caused by malware.

KeyRaider, as the malware family has been dubbed, is distributed through a third-party repository of Cydia, which markets itself as an alternative to Apple's official App Store. Malicious code surreptitiously included with Cydia apps is creating problems for people in China and at least 17 other countries, including France, Russia, Japan, and the UK. Not only has it pilfered account data for 225,941 Apple accounts, it has also disabled some infected phones until users pay a ransom, and it has made unauthorized charges against some victims' accounts.

Researchers with Palo Alto Networks worked with members of the Chinese iPhone community Weiphone after members found the unauthorized charges...

T-Mobile gives Data Tethering Abusers the Smackdown

If you've been finding ways to work around T-Mobile's data tethering caps, get ready for a smackdown because company CEO John Legere is gunning for you. He said customers who find ways to work around the 7GB monthly tethering cap are stealing and that's going stop. About 3,000 people are being targeted, and will get bumped from their unlimited data plan to a capped entry level plan.

The Mac Observer Spin: T-Mobile is clearly making an example out of its most extreme tethering abusers, and the message the company is sending is clear: Play by the rules and we can all be friends; abuse the system and we'll go medieval on you.

New Rumor Two-tier Pricing for Apple TV

When the price of Apple TV dropped to US$69 and added "starting at" to the streaming content device's webpage, Apple clearly telegraphed a higher priced model would be coming. Now a rumor claims that second model will be priced between $149 and $199, and is going to be introduced during the company's September 9 media event.

The Mac Observer Spin: Reports of a new Apple TV model that costs more and includes Siri voice control and an App Store isn't much of a surprise. When Apple changed the price of the third generation Apple TV to "starting at $69," it was all but confirming the higher priced model with more features was on the way.

How the Windows Phone Could Rise Up and Dominate


Last week marked the 20th anniversary of the launch of Windows 95. What people often forget about Windows 95 is that it not only kicked Apple's butt, but also kicked IBM's -- and it wasn't even a complete product. The thing was an operating system. Most of us can see lining up to buy a complete product, but lining up to buy the software that makes a product complete would be kind of like lining up to get the latest software patch for your car or TV. It's especially hard to imagine now that there's no need to stand in line.

T-Mobile has announced that it’s going to seriously clamp down on any users using unauthorized methods to get around its tethering cap. Those caught using more data than they should be on the highest tier, unlimited Simple Choice plan will be warned to stop, before being moved down to the entry-level plan. This move is aimed specifically at smartphone users who deliberately break T-Mo’s terms and conditions using workarounds to conceal their tethering usage.

The magenta carrier published an updated FAQ page on its support site stating that some customers have been blowing way past the 7GB tethering limit on the highest Simple Choice plan. Some using as much as 2TB (2000GB) of data on their mobile plan. Its...

Video producer hooks up six 4K monitors to Mac Pro...

Video producer Adam Matthews wanted to double the number of 4K monitors hooked up to his Mac Pro, so built an external GPU to do it. He used a Sonnet Thunderbolt chassis with an AMD 7970 GPU – before discovering that the machine could actually drive all six monitors without it.

When Matthews tried connecting the monitors using only the twin graphics cards built into the Mac Pro, just to see what would happen, he found he was still able to get 60Hz on each, suggesting that Apple has been conservative in its claims.

Of course, it’s possible that the strain of pushing video to six monitors at once might shorten the life of the Mac Pro, so his Plan A is probably the best route to go if you want to emulate his setup.

Future MacBook Pros could themselves drive three 4K monitors at 60Hz...

The Apple rumor mill is currently abuzz with chatter about a revamped Apple TV, and thanks to a new report from 9to5Mac, we’re getting a better sense of what to expect.

Gurman also says the current Apple TV model will stick around as a low-end option, since the new Apple TV won’t be price-competitive with streaming devices from Roku, Amazon, and others.

BMW: all models electric within decade

NASDAQ:

German luxury car giant Bayerische Motoren Werke AG or BMW Group is looking to go all-electric over the next 10 years due to the upcoming stricter carbon emission laws. Virtually every BMW model would be converted to electric drivetrains, including range-extending engines and plug-in hybrids.

The transition will see even the company’s top-selling 3 Series sport sedans turned into plug-in hybrids.

The company is weary of the stringent European Union regulations that greatly reduce the average carbon emissions permitted from road vehicles. They are said to be tougher than either North American or Chinese emission levels.

Some are calling this the “death of the internal combustion engine”. That is unlikely to happen any time soon but electric is the future. BMW is just getting out ahead of it.

A FreeBSD "Spork" With Touches of NeXT and...

There are a lot of open source operating systems out there; being open source, they lend themselves to forks, clones or near clones, and friendly offshoots. There are even services to let you customize, download, and (if you choose) bulk-install your own OS based on common components. Phoronix notes a new project called NeXTBSD that might turn more heads than most new open source OSes, in part because of the developers behind it, and in part because of the positive thoughts many people have toward the aesthetics of NeXTSTEP and Mac OS X. (And while it might be a fork of FreeBSD, the developers would rather call it a spork, instead.)

NeXTBSD was announced last week by Jordan Hubbard and Kip Macy at the Bay Area FreeBSD Users Group (BAFUG). NeXTBSD / FreeBSD X is based on the FreeBSD-CURRENT kernel while adding in Mach IPC, Libdispatch, notifyd, asld, launchd, and other components derived from Apple's open-source code for OS X.

The obvious question is, what will be the special new feature to make it event-worthy? Answer: There won't be one. There will be several smaller improvements this year.

In the meantime, you can see all the important headlines here in this slideshow. Want to get more details on a story? Click on the link.

iPhone 6S: Larger front FaceTime camera, Force Touch...

A series of new, high-resolution photos we have obtained show new features coming to the next-generation iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus. First, comparisons of the front glass indicate that the new devices will sport upgraded front-facing FaceTime cameras with bigger sensors. The white phone in our images is a current iPhone 6, while the black plate is an iPhone 6S component. The presence of larger sensors likely indicates a higher megapixel count up from the current 1.2 as well as new functionality…

Google undermining Apple’s planned iOS 9 security

Those settings, which are slated to arrive when Apple launches its iOS 9 operating system in September, will require all content that arrives on an iPhone (via apps, ads or otherwise) to use an encryption setting known as “https.” The setting ensures that third parties can’t read or track what users are doing on their phones.

In a blog post this week, Google told AdMob users to get ready for the new Apple setting. But if they’re not prepared, Google said, they can use a few lines of code to override it.

Go fuck yourself Google.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg on Thursday announced that for the first time more than a billion people had used the site on a single day. The counter hit the milestone earlier in the week, on Monday. Nearly 1.5 billion users log on at least once monthly, according to Facebook, but Monday marked the first time that more than two-thirds of its members used the network on the same day.

Lara Croft GO ($5) — Square Enix Montréal follows up on last year’s Hitman GO with a new “GO” instalment similarly based on a popular console game franchise. Like its predecessor, instead of replicating the console game onto the iOS device, Lara Croft GO creates a turn based puzzle adventure game set in the same game universe. In a game that feels like a cross between Hitman GO and Monument Valley — another one of our favorite…

New information for the Intel Skylake processors that are most likely to wind up in a MacBook Air has been released.

The Skylake processors, which may be branded the “Core m3″, “Core m5″ and “Core m7″ offer the following specs:

The low-end Core m3 6Y30 has a 900 MHz dual-core processor with Turbo Boost up to 2.2 GHz. The chip has 4MB of L3 cache, HD 515 graphics, a maximum GPU frequency of 850 MHz and 4.5 watt thermal design power (TDP).

Rumor: Apple to keep next-gen iPhone base end...

It looks like 16 gigabytes will continue to remain the low end of storage for Apple’s next-gen iPhone.

A purported photo of an iPhone 6S information sheet seems to indicate that Apple will stick with 16 GB of storage for the base model. The image comes from Steve Hemmerstoffer and matches analysis of iPhone 6S components obtained by 9to5Mac back in June, which showed Apple using 16 GB memory chips in preproduction units.

It was initially thought that Apple would bump the low end’s storage up appreciably, although early builds of iOS 9 indicate that the new operating system is more efficient with its storage space.

The photo has yet to be verified and has...

Weaponized Drones May Fly the Friendly Skies of...


Police in North Dakota can use drones armed with what are optimistically called "nonlethal weapons," thanks to the passage of House Bill 1328, which Gov. Jack Dalrymple signed into law this spring. The new law gives police the authority in a roundabout way: Section 5 states a law enforcement agency may not authorize the use of an unmanned aerial vehicle armed with lethal weapons. Rep. Rick Becker, R-Bismarck, in January introduced the bill, which originally sought to ban both lethal and nonlethal weapons.

We recently received Tech21's new Evo Mesh Sport for iPhone 6 ($40) and Evo Elite for iPhone 6 Plus ($50) — though both cases are available for both of Apple's current iPhones. Both cases provide button coverage and are integrated with FlexShock, "a new cutting edge hybrid impact protection material which absorbs, dissipates and repels shock away from your device when dropped." It's a TPU case with small strips of rubber lining to cushion the phone. Evo Elite sets itself apart with a scratch-resistant coating, and a built-in hard plastic bumper on the sides of the case.{/exp:char_limit}

Apple takes Washington

Politico:

A private conference in Washington with the attorney general (in itself a rarity for many tech magnates) would have been unthinkable for Cook’s irascible predecessor, Steve Jobs, who actively disdained D.C. Cook, much as he sought to shirk Jobs’ shadow as CEO, had also endeavored quietly to rethink his company’s relationship with the nation’s capital, becoming a leader not only ready to engage its power brokers but challenge them openly when it mattered most.

Watching Cook in his dealings with Washington has been fascinating precisely because it’s something Steve Jobs hated and wouldn’t do. Cook seems more open and able to navigate the issues.

Working retail taught me everything i need to know...

Lifehacker:

People say that “everyone should work retail or service at least once in their lives.” I couldn’t agree more. Like many people, some of my first jobs were retail service gigs. One in a department store, another in a bookstore. I’ve long since moved on, but I learned a lot about the nature of people—and how that battle between selfishness and empathy is something we all struggle with, every day.

I never worked long in retail but I was there long enough to know the jobs generally sucked. 99% of retail employees are good, hardworking people. Please treat them with the same respect you want for yourself.
