New Android Malware Sprouting Like Weeds


Information stored on an Android smartphone or tablet is vulnerable to almost 4,900 new malware files each day, according to a new G Data SecurityLabs report. Cybercriminals' interest in the Android operating system has grown, the firm's Q1 2015 Mobile Malware Report revealed. "The report suggests that Android devices are becoming a bigger target for the bad guys and more profitable than in previous years," said Andy Hayter, security evangelist for G Data. The number of new malware samples in the first quarter increased 6.4 percent.

Review: Monk Magnet Wallet Case for iPhone 6 and...

The Monk Magnet Wallet Case ($35) from Sewell Direct is a magnetic removable folio case for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Like a few other cases we've seen, Monk Magnet Wallet Case lets users remove the phone from the wallet folio for use — when removed, it sits inside a faux-leather backed shell case (the folio is faux-leather, as well). The magnetic attachment makes installation and removal simple. Monk Magnet Wallet Case has three card slots and a pocket for cash. As is the norm with most folio cases, Monk Magnet Wallet Case doesn't provide much protection, especially when the phone is used while solely in the shell.{/exp:char_limit}

Now that Apple Music is out, you can give it a try for three month before you have to start paying for it. If you have a family, you can save some money on membership fees by signing up for a Family Membership. It’s $15 per month for up to six family members. A single user membership costs $10 per month, so you can save a lot of dough.

Rumor: Next-gen iPhone to use Qualcomm MDM9635M LTE...

It came from the rumor mill and it’s pretty interesting.

An anonymous source leaked that Apple will be using a new LTE chip manufactured by Qualcomm in the next-gen iPhone. The MDM9635M chip, also known as the ‘9X35′ Gobi modem platform, promises significant performance improvements over the “9X25″ chip found inside of the current iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, capable of delivering up to twice the theoretical LTE download speeds.

The MDM9635M chip was first introduced by Qualcomm in late 2013 and was introduced in the Samsung Galaxy S5. The chip offers potential download speeds up to 300 Mbps, doubling the 150 Mbps...

Eddy Cue confirmed late last night that a new iOS 9 seed is coming to developers next week with support for Apple Music, but since the service launched yesterday, users have discovered that there are a few ways to use certain aspects of it while on iOS 9.

First, if you are running iOS 9, Siri commands work to access some of the features of Apple Music. For instance, you can ask Siri to add an album that you didn’t previously have to your library and the content...

Apple releases iTunes 12.2 update

iTunes 12.2 can be downloaded and installed through OS X’s Software Update or App Store features and requires an Intel processing running OS X 10.7.5 or later to run while its iTunes Extras kit requires OS X 10.9.3 or later to install and run.

Mac OS X 10.10.4 adds TRIM support for third-party...

IMAGE VIA ARS TECHnICA

Yesterday, Apple released Mac OS X 10.10.4, providing a number of bug fixes and subtle improvements to the currently shipping version of the desktop operating system. According to Ars Technica, one of those improvements is the addition of support for TRIM on third-party solid state drives (SSDs)

TRIM isn't something most users worry about; it's a system-level command that provides communication between the operating system and SSD regarding unused areas of the drive that are ready for erasure and overwriting. Without TRIM, drives can become much slower as more data is added to the device. OS X has...

5 Things the Apple App Store Could Do Better


I haven't been thrilled with app discovery on the App Store for years, and while Apple has been tweaking things to make it better, it's pretty easy to enter the iOS App Store, look around, and come to the conclusion that only an infinitesimal fraction of 1.5 million apps must be worthy of showing off -- and unfortunately, Disney's "Palace Pets in Whisker Haven" is one of them. Which raises the question: Are there really great apps that never see the light of day hiding out in the App Store, waiting for their chance to get recognized and shine?

Is Safari the New Internet Explorer?

An anonymous reader writes: Software developer Nolan Lawson says Apple's Safari has taken the place of Microsoft's Internet Explorer as the major browser that lags behind all the others. This comes shortly after the Edge Conference, where major players in web technologies got together to discuss the state of the industry and what's ahead. Lawson says Mozilla, Google, Opera, and Microsoft were all in attendance and willing to talk — but not Apple. "It's hard to get insight into why Apple is behaving this way. They never send anyone to web conferences, their Surfin' Safari blog is a shadow of its former self, and nobody knows what the next version of Safari will contain until that year's WWDC. In a sense, Apple is like Santa Claus, descending yearly to give us some much-anticipated presents, with no forewarning about which of our wishes he'll grant this year. And frankly, the presents have been getting smaller and smaller lately." He argues, "At this point, we in the web community...

Faster, Cheaper Fiber Could Rev Up Internet


Researchers have found a way to significantly improve the performance of fiber networks, which could lead to benefits for both consumers and Internet service providers. Information in fiber optic cables degrades with distance. When you try to increase the speed at which the data is traveling by boosting the power in the network, degradation gets worse. "It's like quicksand," said Nikola Alic, a research scientist at the Qualcomm Institute, part of the University of California at San Diego. "The more you struggle, the faster you sink."

How to request a song on Beats 1

Certain shows on Apple's Beats 1 will accept requests from listeners. You can submit a request into one of two ways. 

First, pick up the phone. That's totally old school, but so is listening to the radio. Just point your browser to http://beats1radio.com/requests  to find a list of numbers for customers in 13 countries, including the US, Canada, France, Japan and Germany.

If you'd rather not place a call, simply post a tweet with the hashtag #Beats1Requests

Earlier today I was wondering why a person would place a request when she has millions of songs available on demand. I asked Twitter and got a few interesting answers. 

Mark Dagon said: It'd be nice to set up a playlist for others to hear. Live365 did that.

Apple Music is live and ready. You can tune into Apple's 24 hour radio station, Beats 1, on your iOS device or Mac running iTunes 12.2. That's great, but some customers have their premium sound system connected to their home entertainment system, including the Apple TV. Fortunately, it's easy to listen to Beats 1 via Apple TV. 

Right now, the iTunes Radio app on Apple TV does not have access to Beats 1. That could change, but we'll have to wait and see. For now, follow these steps. 

While listening to Beats 1 via the Apple Music app on your iOS device, and tap the AirPlay button. Lastly, select your Apple TV and you're good! 

Hopefully the iTunes Radio button will be updated to include Beats 1. Until then, AirPlay works.

Apple Loses Ebook Price Fixing Appeal, Must Pay $450...

An anonymous reader writes: A federal appeals court ruled 2-1 today that Apple indeed conspired with publishers to increase ebook prices. The ruling puts Apple on the hook for the $450 million settlement reached in 2014 with lawyers and attorneys general from 33 states. The Justice Dept. contended that the price-fixing conspiracy raised the price of some e-books from the $10 standard set by Amazon to $13-$15. The one dissenting judge argued that Apple's efforts weren't anti-competitive because Amazon held 90% of the market at the time. Apple is unhappy with the ruling, but they haven't announced plans to take the case further. They said, "While we want to put this behind us, the case is about principles and values. We know we did nothing wrong back in 2010 and are assessing next steps."

Apple Music Connect was unveiled on Tuesday as part of the Apple Music service. It’s a social aspect that gives artist a venue for interacting with fans.

Apple Music Connect artists can, say, create a sample of a melody that they just thought of and make it available on Connect to get feedback from fans. Or an artist can offer previews of new singles that are about to drop. It’s another way for artists to cultivate a community on Apple Music.

Op-ed: Safari is the new Internet Explorer

Last weekend I attended EdgeConf, a conference populated by many of the leading lights in the Web industry. It featured panel talks and breakout sessions with a focus on technologies that are just now starting to emerge in browsers, so there was a lot of lively discussion around Service Worker, Web Components, Shadow DOM, Web Manifests, and more.

EdgeConf’s hundred-odd attendees were truly the heavy hitters of the Web community. The average Twitter follower count in any given room was probably in the thousands, and all the major browser vendors were represented—Google, Mozilla, Microsoft, Opera. We had lots of fun peppering them with questions about when they might release such-and-such API.

There was one company not in attendance, though, and it served as the proverbial elephant in the room that no one wanted to discuss. I heard it referred to cagily as “a company in California” or “a certain fruit...

Bad news for Prince fans: These artists are missing...

a few artists are still not ready to commit to Apple Music. The Beatles are a big—but expected—holdout. It took Apple years to bring The Beatles to the iTunes Store and when it finally did in 2010, the company did an entire ad campaign about it. If Apple Music included The Beatles’ catalog, we would have heard about it weeks ago.

Another notable holdout is Prince, who has an artist page on Apple Music—but it’s completely blank. It’s possible that Apple and Prince are still sorting out negotiations, but as of launch day, Apple Music subscribers won’t be able to work out to “When Doves Cry.”

It’s a real shame for me – I’m a huge Prince fan – and there are a lot of other popular artists not included, to the great detriment of their fans.

Pretty much every operating system in use these days supports TRIM—a special ATA command that the OS sends along to an SSD when deleting files on that SSD. The lone exception to that list has been Apple’s OS X, which—at least until today—only supported TRIM on its OEM SSDs. If you took a Mac that originally came with a spinning disk and installed an aftermarket SSD in it yourself, the operating system wouldn’t use TRIM on the disk—at least, not unless you resorted to third-party tools.

With today’s OS X 10.10.4 update, however, Apple has added a command line utility that can be used to enable TRIM on third-party SSDs without having to download and install anything. Called trimforce, the utility can be executed from the OS X terminal, and it requires a reboot to start...

Bad news for Prince fans: These artists are missing...

Cupertino is cheering after Taylor Swift’s very public change of heart, but other artists have not been as easy to court in favor of Apple’s new streaming service.

Apple Music, which launched Tuesday morning, now boasts an exclusive on Swift’s bestseller, 1989, after the artist refused to allow her newest album to be on any streaming services. Apple Music also has another surprising new partner: Thom Yorke. Like Swift, the Radiohead frontman has been a vocal opponent of streaming services, pulling songs from his solo albums and his side project off Spotify. Apple Music, however, counts with Thom Yorke’s The Eraser and Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes...

Get the Beats 1 programming schedule

I've been listening to Beats 1, Apple's new 24-hour radio station, and I'm enjoying it quite a bit. DJ Zane Lowe is personable and really, really enthusiastic. As a budding fan, I'm interested in knowing what to expect out of the station. Fortunately, Apple has published a full Beats 1 schedule on Tumblr. 

Visit applemusic.tumblr.com for the full run-down, including the daily schedule and upcoming special programming, like Zane's interview with Eminem and some live Rolling Stones. 

You can find the schedule in the iOS app, too. Just tap the Beats 1 graphic and scroll down to see the day's events in order. Have fun!

In general, it's a visual and functional improvement, especially on the iPad, where it makes better use of the screen space.

The 2-1 decision upheld a lower court ruling that the agreement that raised e-book prices to higher levels than those previously charged by Amazon violated antitrust laws. In his dissenting opinion, U.S. District Court Judge Dennis Jacobs said he would have reversed the ruling, holding that Apple’s…

Trent Reznor on Apple Music: other services “left me...

Rolling Stone:

Reznor is taking his own stab at a streaming service, with an eye toward connecting with fans, with Apple Music’s Beats 1 radio.

I want that feeling of walking into an independent record shop, if there are still any that exist, like Amoeba [Records], and being delighted by the choices and the way music is presented to you with love and care. It’s exciting. And you leave with stuff you wouldn’t have dreamed you wanted and you’re excited to listen and share it and experience it.”

I love Reznor’s intensity both in his Nine Inch Nails days and now as the guy who seems to be the driving force of Apple Music.

The next major release of OS X looms like some kind of mountain over some kind of park, but Yosemite isn't done yet. Today Apple released the final version of OS X 10.10, a bugfix update that comes almost three months after 10.10.3.

The first change in OS X 10.10.4 is to "networking reliability," which is likely a reference to the replacement of discoveryd, a new-but-flaky DNS service introduced in Yosemite. It has been replaced with what appears to be mDNSresponder, the service...

Apple releases iOS 8.4 with new Music app, fix for...

Apple has just released iOS 8.4, the latest update to its mobile operating system. The update isn't as wide-ranging as iOS 8.3, but it does add a few notable things—chief among them are a revamped Music app and a fix for a bug where a specific set of characters could crash the operating system. iOS 8.4 is available for the iPhone 4S and newer, the iPad 2 and newer, and the fifth-generation iPod Touch.

The redesigned music app accompanies the launch of Apple Music and the 24-hour, human-curated Beats One radio station, which Apple exec Eddy Cue and a parade of others spent a long, long time unveiling at WWDC earlier this month. The Spotify-esque on-demand streaming station comes with a three-month trial, and when that ends, it will cost $10 a month for...

Apple Music launches later today, along with Beats 1 and updates to iOS and iTunes. It's a massive undertaking for the company that redefined the music industry with the original iPod in 2001  and iTunes Music Store in 2003. Now positioned to do it again with a streaming service and global radio station, Apple is coming off of two less-than-successful music projects.

The music-focused social network Ping never caught on and was closed in 2012. More recently, iTunes Radio failed to capture an audience like that of music streaming rival Pandora. What's different this time around? Apple's Eddy Cue, Jimmy Iovine and Trent Reznor gave interviews this week that answer that very question.

Just after T+2 minutes, when the craft's altitude was 32 km, its speed was 1 km/second, and its downrange distance was 30 km, its flight path apparently began curving downward. Three explosions then occurred. "There was an overpressure event in the upper stage liquid oxygen tank. Data suggests counterintuitive cause," SpaceX CEO Elon Musk tweeted. "The Falcon line has been a remarkably reliable launch vehicle," said Frost & Sullivan analyst Mike Jude.

The rapper turned media mogul won the digital rights for the album from his former record label, Death Row Records, in 2011. Since then, it has not been available on streaming services since that time. The Chronic joins Taylor Swift's 1989 as exclusive streaming titles for Apple Music.
