Silicon Valley Sources Refute Elon Musk Claims about...

Tesla CEO Elon Musk told the world Friday that Apple has been hiring people fired from Tesla, that Apple is jokingly known as the Tesla Graveyard. That's not the story I've been hearing for some time from my sources. My understanding is that many people have been leaving Tesla to go to a variety of other companies, and not just to Apple.

User Info Safe After LoopPay Attack, Says Samsung

Samsung has assured users that their information is safe following a computer intrusion of a key company linked to its mobile payment system. The intrusion of LoopPay by a gang of hackers known as the Codoso or Sunshock Group may have occurred as early as March. Samsung purchased LoopPay for $250 million in February. Its technology -- which the company's newly launched mobile payment system, Samsung Pay, uses -- allows mobile phones to perform payment card transactions with older POS terminals that recognize only cards with magnetic strips.

New Apps Blockr ($1) — One of the lower profile features added in iOS 9 was support in Safari for third-party content blocking solutions, similar to what Mac users have been able to employ for years. Blockr is one of the first such apps to appear on the App Store; once installed, it plugs into the Safari browser, allowing you to selectively remove annoying ads, images, social buttons, cookie warnings, and more while surfing the web.

Google’s app indexing links coming to Safari on iOS...

Google first introduced app indexing for iOS apps in search back in May, allowing in-app content to appear in search results with links that send users directly to an app. The feature was originally only available in the Google app and Chrome browser, but now Google is launching an updated version of the framework that will make the app links also appear in Google search results in Safari.

Getting your app content found on Google just got easier. App Indexing is now compatible with HTTP deep link standards for iOS 9, as it has been on Android from the beginning. That means that you can start getting your app content into the Search results page on Safari in iOS, simply by adding Universal...

Amazon Casts Its Net on the Internet of Things

Amazon on Thursday leapt into the Internet of Things market with the announcement of its AWS IoT platform. AWS IoT lets devices -- ranging from cars and turbines to sensor grids and light bulbs -- connect to services from Amazon Web Services. That in turn allows companies to store, process, analyze and act on the mountains of data generated by connected devices. "Amazon certainly doesn't want to miss its share of the IoT opportunity," said Dan Shey, a practice director at ABI Research.

External Link: Apple Says iPhone 6s Battery Life...

It turns out that Apple has two suppliers for the A9 chip that powers the new iPhone 6s and 6s Plus — Samsung and TSMC — and the chipmakers rely on different process technologies. Some benchmarks have shown that iPhones using the TSMC A9 chip are more efficient than Samsung’s A9 chip, resulting in longer battery life. Apple has now weighed in on the controversy, telling TechCrunch that the difference in real-world use is just 2–3 percent, nothing that anyone would notice in actual usage and well within the tolerances that Apple would accept for any device.

Notable apps and app updates for October 9, 2015

On a regular basis, Apple World Today posts a list of notable new apps or app updates that have been released. They may not necessarily be new, but they're popular and deserve mention. Here are today's picks for iOS and Mac OS X:

iOS Apps and Updates

Blue Jeans (free, service charges may apply) -- sounds comfortable, doesn't it? This app is really made for work, though, allowing iPhone and iPad access the video conferencing systems from Polycom, Cisco, LifeSize, Tely, Microsoft Lync and more.

Apple removes several apps that could spy on...

(credit: PhotoAtelier)

Apple has purged its iOS App Store of several titles that it said had the ability to compromise encrypted connections between end users and the servers they connect to. The company advised users to uninstall the apps from their iPhones and iPads to prevent potentially harmful monitoring, but it has yet to name any of the offending titles.

"Apple has removed a few apps from the App Store that install root certificates that could allow monitoring of data," company officials wrote in an advisory posted Friday. "This monitoring could be used to compromise SSL/TLS security solutions. If you have one of these apps installed on your device, delete both the app and its associated configuration profile to make sure your data remains protected."

AT&T activates Wi-Fi calling feature for iPhone...

At long last, AT&T has activated Wi-Fi calling.

The carrier has apparently activated this feature, assorted customers having stated they were able to activate Wi-Fi calling on their iPhones.

Wi-Fi calling is a feature that lets calls be placed over a wireless connection when cellular connectivity is poor, functioning much like an AT&T M-Cell does now. It’s similar to Apple’s own FaceTime Audio feature, which also routes calls over a Wi-Fi connection.

The feature can be activated by going into Settings, then the Phone section, then toggling on the Wi-Fi calling feature. From there, there are a set of steps to walk...

Apple online store offers SIM-free iPhone 6s, 6s...

Apple's online store is now offering SIM-free iPhone 6s and 6s Plus models. Pricing for the former starts at US$649 ($32.45 with Apple's iPhone Upgrade Program). Pricing for the latter begins at $749 ($37.45 per month with the upgrade program.

"The SIM-free iPhone comes without a wireless contract commitment or carrier financing. It doesn’t come with a nano-SIM card for iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, or iPhone 5s," says Apple. "And because it’s unlocked, it isn’t tied to one carrier, so you can get a nano-SIM from any supported carrier worldwide, such as AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon, or Sprint in the United States."

Of course, the plan also means that you have to pay the full price for the Apple smartphone upfront. On the bright side, SIM-free iPhones work on a variety of networks including AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile...

Two weeks after the launch of the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus handsets, Apple has added a new purchasing option for the devices to its online store. As of yesterday, customers can now buy an iPhone 6s or 6s Plus SIM-free, unlocked, and without a carrier.

The units arrive without a commitment to a carrier or carrier financing. Apple has also noted that the device does not come with a nano-SIM, meaning that customers can go to a carrier of their choice and get a SIM, assuming the carrier supports the wireless bands the iPhone has. The entire cost of the iPhone must be...

iOS 9's "back to" button helps you...

Multitasking is all the rage these days. Certainly that’s the case on the iPad, where the recent release of iOS 9 has brought about split-screen multitasking for the first time to choruses of hallelujahs from users and quick revamps of well-established apps. No doubt it’s handy.

Nearly overlooked, though, is a powerful new feature in iOS 9 that makes operating multiple apps on your iPhone an easier, more fluid task than ever before. It’s the “back to” button, and it’ll make the phone’s power users wonder how they ever lived without it. It’s already changing the way I use and view content in my iPhone.

Apple Approves, Then Removes In-App Ad Blocker

Mickeycaskill writes: Apple has pulled a number of applications from the App Store, most notably the "Been Choice" ad blocker, because of concerns the methods they employ to rid adverts could compromise sensitive user data. iOS 9 allows for the installation of applications that block adverts in Safari, but other apps like Been Choice go one step further and let users remove adverts from applications – including Apple News. Been Choice routes traffic through a VPN to filter out adverts in some applications, but it this technique has attracted the attention of Apple, which is concerned user data could be exposed. Apple says it is working with developers to get their apps back up and Been is refining its application for resubmission. In any case, Been says users must opt-in for in-app ad blocking and that no data is stored on its servers.

Apple is now selling SIM-free, unlocked versions of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus in its online store. This option lets users purchase a phone without immediately tying it to a carrier. The SIM-free iPhones do not come with a nano-SIM card — you have to get a card from a supported carrier. Customers will pay full retail price for these options, of course, which range from $649 for an unlocked iPhone 6s to $949 for a 128GB SIM-free iPhone 6s Plus.…

Elon Musk: “If you don’t make it at Tesla, you go...

If there's one CEO you can count on for consistently amusing outbursts and quotable sound bites, it's Tesla CEO Elon Musk. Today's EMOTD (Elon Musk of the Day) comes courtesy of German business newspaper Handelsblatt, where the outspoken CEO hopped aboard the banter bus and revealed that his cheeky employees often refer to Apple as the "Tesla Graveyard."

In response to claims that Apple is poaching key members of Tesla staff to work on its long-rumoured self-driving car project, Musk joked: "Important engineers? They have hired people we've fired. We always jokingly call Apple the Tesla Graveyard." But just to make sure that his comments weren't entirely dismissed as harmless CEO-style jostling, he added: "If you don’t make it at Tesla, you go work at Apple. I’m not kidding."

Maybe Apple should bring multiple colors back to the...

Remember when the original iMac -- and, later, the iBook laptop -- came in a choice of colors? Could it be time for a return to those days?

The first iMac came only in bondi blue. Over time Apple offered choices in strawberry, blueberry, lime, grape, tangerine, graphite, ruby, snow, indigo, sage, Blue Dalmation and Flower Power. 

Perhaps Apple could offer an all-in-one desktop in the iPhone 6s flavors: gold, sliver, space gray and rose gold. Of course, the colors wouldn't have to be limited to the iMac. It could also apply to the Mac laptop line and the Mac mini (somehow I don't see the Mac Pro as being a candidate for flashy colors). 

The iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch get all the attention these day. It's time to bring a little fun back to the Mac.

Deskscribble lets you easily scribble on your Mac OS...

If you want to write and paint on your Mac's screen without doing any permanent damage, Deskscribble for Mac OS X (10.6.7 or later) is for you. It not only allows you to draw on top of your desktop and atop all open windows, it's also an easy-to-use whiteboard, blackboard and you can even use it for your own and your kids’ scribbles.

Deskscribble -- available in the Mac App Store for US$9.99 -- isn't something I will personally use very often. However, if I were still a Mac-using teacher (as I once was), it could be invaluable. Deskscribble lets you work with either a whiteboard or blackboard interface. It supports written text, diagrams and more, so teachers and others making presentations can "mark" on their desktops -- circling key concepts, underlining important words, etc. .-- and share this with others using a projector.

Besides teachers and those doing business...

Apple removing ad blockers that install root...

Apple this evening has removed a handful of apps from the App Store that install root certificates of their own. By installing their own root certificate, the app developers could theoretically gain access to encrypted traffic from users. Among some of the apps being removed are a select number of ad blockers. The ad blockers that have been removed are ones that block content both in Safari and in other apps.

The process that developers went through to be able to block ads in third-party apps is basically setting up a VPN where all traffic is run through the developer’s servers to remove the ads. This is a process that, obviously, could be used for malicious practices...

Elon Musk: All charged up in Berlin


Handelsblatt: Apple just hired some of Tesla’s most important engineers. Do you have to worry about a new competitor?

Musk: Important engineers? They have hired people we’ve fired. We always jokingly call Apple the “Tesla Graveyard.” If you don’t make it at Tesla, you go work at Apple. I’m not kidding.

Handelsblatt: Do you take Apple’s ambitions seriously?

Musk: Did you ever take a look at the Apple Watch? (laughs) No, seriously: It’s good that Apple is moving and investing in this direction. But cars are very complex compared to phones or smartwatches. You can’t just go to a supplier like Foxconn and say: Build me a car. But for Apple, the car is the next logical thing to finally offer a significant innovation. A new pencil or a bigger iPad alone were not relevant enough.

Yet another person who should know better being dismissive of Apple. Remember when cell phone manufacturers said it’s not easy to make a phone and that Apple...

Facebook had good reasons to resist a Dislike button, with all of its attendant negativity. The new Reactions bar addresses the spirit of the user requests with a "more expressive Like button," said Chris Cox, chief product officer at Facebook.

New iPhones in rose gold, a color Apple CEO Tim Cook said he hoped would appeal to Asian consumers, sold faster than all other new iPhones after sales started at midnight in Taiwan, reports the Central News Agency (as noted by, a global investment newswire). Retailers Tsann Kuen and STUDIO A sold out of rose gold by 1:20 am.

Tsann Kuen sold out of the rose gold 64G and 128G iPhone 6S and 64G 6S Plus in half an hour. It sold all 128G rose gold 6S Plus handsets in 80 minutes. Rose gold was more popular than expected among men, the company, which 1,000 new iPhones in all models for the first batch, said.

STUDIO A sold out all iPhone models in an hour, with rose gold running out of stock first. The rose gold models sold out in Japan 20 minutes after going on sale there and, in China, the black market price for the rose gold 6S Plus peaked at CNY 21,000 (USD 3,310) in September, notes the Central News Agency, Taiwan's...

With the Apple-designed A9 chip in your iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus, you are getting the most advanced smartphone chip in the world. Every chip we ship meets Apple’s highest standards for providing incredible performance and deliver great battery life, regardless of iPhone 6s capacity, color, or model.

Certain manufactured lab tests which run the processors with a continuous heavy workload until the battery depletes are not representative of real-world usage, since they spend an unrealistic amount of time at the highest CPU performance state. It’s a misleading way to measure real-world battery life. Our testing and customer data show the actual battery life of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, even taking into account variable component differences, vary within just 2-3% of each other.

Apple: Data shows TSMC and Samsung iPhone 6S models...

Enlarge / Chipworks confirms that both Samsung and TSMC are manufacturing subtly different A9 processors for Apple. (credit: Chipworks)

Late last month, Chipworks confirmed that Apple was using two different sources for the A9 chip in the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus: Samsung and TSMC. The chips differ slightly in size, but appear to have largely identical performance.

In the last 48 hours, though, data from users who have compared Samsung phones to TSMC phones ...

“Chipgate” scandal erupts for iPhone 6s, 6s Plus...

Well, you can’t release a new iPhone without at least some scandal.

This year it may come down to the processor inside your new iPhone 6s or 6s Plus.

In the new “Chipgate” controversy, Apple may have shipped a series of processors that could affect battery life with the handset.

Apple, which used two suppliers (Samsung and TSMC) to build the chip, is facing feedback in which users are reporting that those with the Samsung chip could have up to 20 percent less battery life. Apple has yet to respond to the controversy.

For consumers, the problem is there is no way of telling which chip you will get when...

Lyft's new perks for drivers prove it's...

Lyft built its reputation on friendliness. From pink mustaches and fist bumps when the ride-hailing app launched three years ago to carpooling and tipping today, the company wants everyone, both drivers and passengers, to be happy. Today, Lyft rolled out three perks for drivers that will make passengers feel good about using the service—or persuade them to work for Lyft themselves.

The company is partnering with Hertz to offer daily, weekly, and monthly car rental discounts to Lyft drivers who don’t have access to a car, whether it’s in need of repairs or they don’t own one at all. The company is piloting the partnership program in Las Vegas, where Lyft was finally allowed to launch just last month after a years-long stalemate.

iOS hits 12-month low in U.S. (but that's...

The latest smartphone sales data from Kantar Worldpanel ComTech for the three months ending August 2015 shows the U.S. market share for the iOS at its lowest point since August 2014, as consumers waited for the new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus to become available in September.

"It is to be expected that in the three months preceding the launch of the new products, Apple iPhone sales would be weaker," says Carolina Milanesi, chief of research at Kantar Worldpanel ComTech. "While a month from now may still be too early to report initial sales numbers for the new models, we can say today that 11 percent of iOS owners told us in August that they plan to replace their current phone in the next three months, and 87 percent of these have told us that Apple is their preferred brand.”

AT&T granted Wi-Fi calling waiver, calls for...

AT&T was officially granted an FCC waiver this week to enable Wi-Fi calling for its customers with supported devices like iPhones running iOS 9. Wi-Fi Calling first appeared during the iOS 9 beta period and remained functional for those who enabled it previously, but AT&T stopped sign-ups for the feature once iOS 9 was publicly released due to requirements set by the Federal Communications Commission.

While AT&T has officially turned on Wi-Fi calling for its subscribers, the carrier is doubling down on its position that rivals T-Mobile and Sprint have...

AT&T announced on Wednesday that the FCC had granted a waiver allowing the cell service provider to enable Wi-Fi calling, and on Thursday the company followed up by actually turning on the feature. Wi-Fi calling lets iPhone owners use broadband connections via wireless networks for phone calls when their cell signal is too weak.

Apple is rumored to be gearing up to release a new upgraded iMac model, but it looks like Cupertino will also be launching three updated Mac accessories along with it.

Several websites, including 9to5Mac and French site Consomac, have spotted code in OS X 10.11.1 beta 3 suggesting that Apple is planning to release a Magic Keyboard, Magic Mouse 2, and Magic Trackpad 2 in the coming months. The 10.11.1 beta 3 was originally released to developers this week, and 9to5Mac has confirmed that the Magic accessories code is not present in the current OS X 10.11 release.

Silicon Valley will barely recognize the ‘Steve Jobs...


Academy Award-winning screenwriter Aaron Sorkin uses actual events to take the audience on an imagined — as in, fictional — series of fast-paced exchanges in the minutes before the curtain would rise on the introduction of each product.

But the writer and director weren’t looking to create a biopic that rigidly adhered to the details of Jobs’s life — rather, they wanted to create an “impressionistic portrait” that drew from real-life events.

The story is populated by events that never happened — such as a dramatic reimagining of preparations for the Mac’s demo in which it blows up in rehearsal, instead of declaring, “Hello, I am Macintosh. It sure is great to get out of that bag” — and long, stinging exchanges that aren’t drawn from any of the six biographies written about Jobs.

I’ll still see the movie but will be disappointed if only because I would have preferred more “reality”. Steve Jobs was such a fascinating person that his life story,...

Seems there's a difference between the A9X processors in the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus depending on if they come from Samsung or TSMC. Dave Hamilton and Bryan Chaffin join Jeff Gamet to talk about battery performance based on which version is in your iPhone, and how you can find out if yours is from Samsung or TSMC. They also look at Adobe's new change that lets you use Lightroom on your iPhone or iPad without a Creative Cloud subscription.

28% of CIOs still believe Mac OS X is more secure...

With Macs encroaching on PC’s hold in the enterprise market (US$25 billion annually and growing, according to Apple CEO Tim Cook), Avecto, a security software firm, has released new research showing that a little more than one in four American CIOs [chief information officers] believe that Mac computers are more secure than Windows PCs.

The rise in high-profile malware attacks is damaging CIOs’ confidence in Mac security, according to Paul Kenyon, vice president at Avecto. Following the detection of WireLurker last year, a type of malware that infects OS X computers, 40% of CIOs say they now have less confidence in Mac security.

However, the perception that Macs are fundamentally safer than Windows computers was also revealed in the research, with 28% still believing OS X is simply "more" than Windows, Kenyon adds.  Avecto questioned 100 CIOs at companies with over 1,000 employees and from a range of industries about their Mac...

Zeppelin Wireless speaker system floats onto the...

Bowers & Wilkins has announced the Zeppelin Wireless, a redesign of its popular Zeppelin speaker system. Now it's, as you might guess from the name, wireless. 

For the Zeppelin Wireless the material and shape of the subwoofer has been altered with a larger 6.5-inch driver and an "ultra-long" voice coil to allow for deeper bass. It also boasts decoupled double-dome tweeters and FST midrange drivers.

A new reinforced cabinet has been redesigned with a front  fascia that's 50 percent thicker than the previous version. Specially designed glass fibre ribs strengthen the cabinet.

The Zeppelin Wireless has Digital Signal Processing (DSP) that's purportedly twice as powerful as its predecessor. All inputs are upsampled to 24-bit/192kHz resolution.

The speaker system includes Airplay, Bluetooth aptX and Spotify Connect support. A Control App has also been updated and is available for iOS, Mac OS X, Android and Windows systems.

The Zeppelin Wireless is...

Lightroom mobile app for iOS is now a standalone...

The Next Web:

Lightroom for mobile on iOS can now be used locally on your phone or tablet without the desktop Lightroom app, without a Creative Cloud Photography Plan subscription and even without an Adobe ID. The same feature is coming soon to Android.

This move is part of an overall desire to broaden the audience. By letting people use Lightroom for mobile without Creative Cloud, Adobe is making the app competitive with other popular standalone photo editing apps like Snapseed or Pixelmator’s mobile version.

I use and love the desktop version of Lightroom and this will be another tool I can use when I’m out and about using my iPad.

This year’s iPhone launch week is over, so the earliest 13 million or so adopters are already playing with and forming opinions on the new iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. Past history suggests that Apple will sell over 100 million of these phones over the next year or so, which means that there are a lot of people still deciding on which model to buy.

If you’re still on the fence about buying one of Apple’s latest and greatest smartphones, there are a few important things you need to know. On the surface, the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus look nearly identical to their ...

Facebook experimenting with letting friends easily...

One of the many things Facebook does well is make it nearly impossible to miss when one of your friends turns another year older. On the web, birthday reminders are placed prominently near the top right with links to easily wish your pal a happy birthday, and on mobile Facebook has experimented with alerts and other ways to help you not forget someone’s big day.

Now Facebook appears to be testing an even more personal way to make your birthday wish stand out: video messages. The Next Web reports that some mobile users have seen a new ‘birthday video’ option appear under Facebook’s Birthdays section (although don’t worry if you don’t see it yet, I don’t have it either)....

Apple had previously stated that the new Apple TV will go on sale in the month of October and that the iPad Pro would be available come November. More specific information than that was impossible to come by.

Not All iPhone 6s Processors Are Created Equal

itwbennett writes: Apple is splitting the manufacture of the A9 processor for its iPhone 6s between TSMC (~60%) and rival Samsung (~40%) — "and they are not created equal," writes Andy Patrizio. For starters, Chipworks noted that Samsung uses 14nm while TSMC uses 16nm. A Reddit user posted tests of a pair of 6s Plus phones and found the TSMC chip had eight hours of battery life vs. six hours for the Samsung. Meanwhile, benchmark tests from the folks at MyDriver (if Mr. Patrizio's efforts with Google Translate got it right) also found that the Samsung chip is a bigger drain on the phone's battery, while the TSMC chip is slightly faster and runs a bit cooler. So how do you know which chip you got? There's an app for that.

Price increase coming for few remaining Verizon...

Verizon iPhone users still clinging on to their grandfathered unlimited data plans will shortly face a $20 price hike. The wireless carrier confirmed to CNET that it plans to raise the price of its old unlimited plan, meaning grandfathered customers will face a monthly data plan charge of $49. The price increase will take place once each individual contract expires…

VZW shifted away from unlimited data back in 2011, and since then, virtually all customers have moved on to the limited, tiered data plans as perks were taken away from the older plans. Only a very small number (less than 1%) of its subscriber base are still unlimited. Interestingly, ...

NASA’s Apollo Mission Photos Free on Flickr

People take photos when they go on really cool trips, and that's true for the astronauts NASA sent to Earth's moon. Instead of keeping all those photos tucked away in a dark closet, NASA decided to share them with the world. All of the photo rolls-they used film back then to take pictures-are available in high resolution on Flickr for your viewing pleasure. Bonus: Our tax dollars paid for everything that went into making those photos possible, so they're free to use as wallpapers, lock screens, or whatever else you can think of.

It’s unclear whether this would be for online preorders or whether the units will actually ship before the end of October,…

Adobe Sets Lightroom for iPhone, iPad Free from...

Lightroom for the iPhone and iPad is a pretty powerful image editing app, but has always required a Creative Cloud subscription, and that you use the Mac version of the app, too. As of Thursday that changed because Adobe turned Lightroom for iOS into a truly stand-alone app that doesn't even require a Creative Cloud subscription.

The Mac Observer Spin: Adobe wants to own the creative tablet market, and taking away the Creative Cloud requirement for Lightroom is another example of that. Adobe was also a part of Apple's iPad Pro unveiling, has other creative apps for the iPhone and iPad, and sells its Ink and Slide stylus for the iPad. Adobe is playing for keeps.

Whenever Apple does have its streaming TV service (which I've dubbed Apple Web TV) ready to launch, it won't be too soon. New data from Parks Associates finds that ten percent of U.S. broadband households are "cord cutters," with one-fourth of them having canceled their pay-TV service in the past 12 months and instead using online video sources. 

What's more, seven percent of U.S. broadband households are recent "cord shavers," those who have downgraded their pay-TV service within the past 12 months and use online video sources. "Cord nevers," consumers who have never subscribed to a pay-TV service but do use online video sources, represent three percent of broadband households.

The Wall Street Times  says that Apple is in talks with programmers to offer a slimmed-down bundle of TV networks that will be...

Your Mac or iOS device isn’t going to do much of anything if its network connection is slow. If that connection is over WiFi and it isn’t working exactly the way you want it to, it’s time to troubleshoot your setup. WiFi Explorer (US$14.99) is a powerful Mac tool that can get your WiFi network operating at peak efficiency.

The app is compatible with all versions of OS X from 10.7 (Lion) to 10.11 (El Capitan), and uses a large and continuously updated vendor information database to identify WiFi routers in the near vicinity. As a default, WiFi Explorer displays a grid showing (for all nearby routers) network names, BSSIDs (the MAC address of the router), the device vendor (Apple, Linksys, etc…), signal strength, channel(s) being used, channel width, the band the router is on (2.4 or 5 GHz), and the modes in which it operates (802.11 a/b/g/n/ac). A large number of other network attributes can be...
