Ahead of a next-generation Apple TV expected to get an official unveiling at Apple’s press event next week, this concept from Andrew Ambrosino imagines a revamped user interface for the device.

We’ve reported extensively on the yet-to-be-announced, next-generation Apple TV and much of the concept from Ambrosino takes into account our reports regarding new features for the device. Most notably, we reported that Apple is currently planning Siri support, a new dedicated remote control, App...

Gear: Knomo Kinsale Soft Leather Messenger Bag

Knomo’s new Kinsale Soft Leather Messenger Bag ($250) can hold up to a 13” MacBook. The front and sides of the messenger bag are covered in smooth leather that lives up to its “soft” name. The leather front flap and the back pocket both shut with strong magnetic closures — the pocket can barely fit an uncased iPad Air. But it’s not like you’ll necessarily need that pocket to store a full-sized iPad, as the bag…

Tip of the Day: Getting Directions from a Calendar...

In many cases, it’s the little things with the Apple Watch that make life easier, especially for users who are always on the go with busy schedules. If you’re frequently hopping between meetings, you may find it useful to know that you can actually get directions to your next event right from the notification on your wrist. Simply force-touch on the alert when it comes up (or the appointment if you’re viewing it in the Calendar app)…

Drones are big business. Whether you're a news organization trying to get shots of the new Apple headquarters building, a surfer wanting to get a different video angle, or a pro mountain biker who wants video for her sponsor, drones are providing high quality video with altitude. Now Apple's getting into the act, adding the DJI Phantom 3 Professional (US$1,259.95) and DJI Phantom 3 Advanced ($999.95) camera drones to the accessory lineup.

Both of these drones are iOS-connected, and feature high-end capabilities like GPS location lock, auto piloting, and -- on the Professional model -- a 4K UHD video camera. The DJI GO app, available for free for the iPhone or iPad...

New App Marries Android Wear Smartwatch to iPhone


Google on Monday rolled out Android Wear for iOS, allowing consumers to pair the iPhone 5, 5c, 5s, 6 or 6 Plus running iOS 8.2 and above with an Android Wear watch. They'll be able to check phone calls, messages and notifications; track fitness; and use Google Now instead of Siri to get smart help from their iPhones. Using Google Now instead of Siri is "a cute touch," observed Jeff Orr, a senior practice director at ABI Research. "You're not asking Siri a question -- you're asking Google Voice."

Sneaky adware caught accessing users’ Mac Keychain...

Last month, Ars chronicled a Mac app that brazenly exploited a then unpatched OS X vulnerability so the app could install itself without requiring people to enter system passwords. Now, researchers have found the same highly questionable installer is accessing people's Mac keychain without permission.

The adware taking these liberties is distributed by Israel-based Genieo Innovation, a company that's long been known to push adware and other unwanted apps. According to researchers at Malwarebytes, the Genieo installer automatically accesses a list of Safari extensions that, for reasons that aren't entirely clear, is stashed inside the...

Instagram updates private photo messaging to be more...

We all know a picture is worth a thousand words, so it’s surprising Instagram didn’t let you send photos back and forth—until now.

On Tuesday, Instagram updated its in-app messaging feature, Instagram Direct, so that you could reply to a private photo message using a selfie or video taken on the spot. Direct messages are now also threaded so you can continue conversations and view the messaging history between you and your friends. In addition, Instagram Direct now lets you share a public Instagram photo directly with a friend. Previously whenever you’d stumble upon a funny, inspiring or relevant Instagram pic that made you think of one of your friends, you had to tag that person in a comment using @-mentions. Instagram noticed that about 40 percent of comments included this @-mention, so the app decided to make it easier to share a photo directly with a specific person or group of...

The most timeless songs of all time

Polygraph:

This is a story about proving, with data, that No Diggity by Blackstreet is timeless.

Until recently, it was impossible to measure the popularity of older music. Billboard charts and album sales only tell us about a song’s popularity at the time of its release.

But now we have Spotify, a buffet of all of music, new and old. Tracks with fewer plays are fading into obscurity. And those with more plays are remaining in the cultural ether.

As with all lists like this, we’ll never agree completely on its makeup but it’s still interesting to see which songs are being played and their frequency. Jason Kottke has created a Rdio and Spotify playlist of songs from the article.

GoPro app for iPhone & iPad gets smart editing...

The official GoPro app for iPhone and iPad gets an update today which brings a new smart editing feature to let users create and share clips instantly from within the app. Previously users resorted to third-party apps for similar functionality with GoPro camera hardware.

The new feature will let users instantly create edited versions of their videos that come in at 5, 15, or 30 seconds. You’ll be able to drag the timeline to select what 5, 15, or 30 second portion of your video you want to isolate. Once you’ve selected your clip, you’ll be able to instantly share to Facebook, YouTube, Instagram and other social sharing options available in the app.

The updated app, version 2.9, also receives an “improved camera software update process” and a number of bug fixes and other improvements.

After mostly letting it sit stagnant for nearly two years, Instagram is ready to show its Direct messaging feature some love. Instagram Direct, which lets you share photos, videos, and messages privately with other Instagram users, was seen as a play at Snapchat and similar apps when it launched in 2013, but it’s so far experienced limited appeal within the photo sharing app. Now Instagram hopes to change that with new features including message threads, giant emoji, sharing from your timeline, and more.

Back to school with a repurposed MacBook

Image from DCComputerWarehouse.com

Back to school means much more than getting new clothes, notebooks, and a box full of unused Crayola crayons. For a lot of students, it’s time to get a computer of some sort, and what better computer than a MacBook? But for parents on a budget, dropping at least a thousand bucks on a new MacBook is out of the question. Never fear, since it’s pretty easy to take even an old MacBook and update it so it’s a perfect school computer.

The perfect student Mac: A MacBook

A perfect Mac for a young student is a 2007 - 2009 MacBook with an Intel processor. That’s a key point; in order to run recent versions of Mac OS X, you’ll want to make sure that the MacBook has an Intel processor and not a G4 or G5 CPU. Old MacBooks available online from resellers for as little as $180, and usually require very little work and money to bring them up to speed.

Why a MacBook and not an iMac or Mac mini? It all has to do with...

LinkedIn, the popular social network for connecting business people, has announced that its messaging experience is getting a serious design overhaul from today. Unlike the previous inbox, messages will no longer follow a traditional email format. Instead, it’s turned towards a messaging app design similar to Facebook Messenger.

LinkedIn has built everything from scratch, from the ground up with a cleaner, streamlined look with a brand new chat-style user interface. You can chat with contacts individually or send group messages, and conversations are organized around the people who are important to you. What’s more, you’ll be able to send documents, images, stickers, emojis and GIFs in your messages.

Apple also may have placed an “unprecedented bid” on former Top Gear stars Jeremy Clarkson, James May, and Richard Hammond earlier this year, though they ultimately signed with Amazon last month.

Such a move could put Apple at odds with Apple TV mainstays like Netflix and Hulu.

Apple may be planning on offering its own original content through Apple TV, much like the streaming video service Netflix does today. The idea that Apple may be planning on launching its own exclusive content isn't new, but this is the first time it's come up recently-and it's finally something the iPhone and iPad maker might be able to pull off.

We’re looking at our little audio slice of the world and trying to focus on creating a stellar product experience. I think that’s also the fundamental DNA of everything Steve wanted to accomplish at Apple. By product experience, that includes ID, design, technology, innovation, simplicity. Those are always things that have been fundamental to our DNA, too.

He said that the early days of low-quality digital music resulted in a ‘lost generation’ for premium audio, but that we now live in a very different world … ...

Your iPhone and iPad may one day alert you to special offers at stores you're visiting or are near. The company has been granted a patent (number 9,125,014) for "location-based ticket books." It most likely involves the Wallet app in iOS 9 that's replacing the current Passbook app.

According to the patent, an iOS device can present a virtual ticket to a service provider based on a location of the device. The device can receive a virtual ticket for accessing a service from a service provider. The virtual ticket can be associated with a signal source. The signal source can be pre-programmed to broadcast a beacon signal that includes an identifier identifying the signal source. 



The signal source can be placed at a venue where the service is available. The mobile device, upon arriving at the venue, can detect the beacon signal from the signal source. In response, the iPhone...

Future iMacs may have more glass in their design and...

Future iMacs may sport glass in the rear as well as for a display cover. They may also sport illuminated, wireless keyboards like those on Mac laptops.

Apple has filed for a patent (number 9,125,298) with the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office for "fused glass device housings" that may be used to cover a display and other internal electronic device components. Jony Ive, Apple's design guru, is listed as one of the inventors.

In the patent filing, Apple doesn't say why replacing aluminum on devices such as iMacs would be desirable (perhaps it's just cooler looking). However, the company says that the use of glass should be used with care so as not to add extra size or weight to the device. The patent could also refer to a Thunderbolt Display, which is way overdue for a 5K upgrade.



Patent 9,123,485 is for a backlit keyboard assembly. A keycap assembly is mounted into...

Even so, Adonit’s new Jot Dash ($50) surprised me. It comes less than 6 months after the release of Jot Script 2 (reviewed here), but looks and feels a lot different from its predecessor.

According to reports, the KeyRaider software will hijack app purchase requests, download stolen accounts or purchase receipts from the C2 server, then emulate the iTunes protocol to log in to Apple’s server and purchase apps or other items requested by users.

Getting a vintage Mac to talk to the Internet at all can be something of a challenge, but even once you’ve wrestled the right cables from your special drawer of junk and battled valiantly with arcane TCP/IP control panels—pausing only to give decades-ago you a collegiate nod of respect for having ever figured this stuff out—you’re suddenly confronted with the sad truth that most of today’s web is functionally useless on old browsers. 

Ostensibly, of course, this shouldn’t be the case. The web is one of the most standardized things around—yes, I said it—and since HTML is a clear and robust agreed-on subset of these standards, in theory everything should be clean and accessible.

Apple is exploring the possibility of getting into the original programming business, claims Variety.  It's certainly  an idea that’s worth mulling over.

Here's Variety's take: "The scale of Apple’s ambitions vary depending on whom is asked, but one high-level executive who talked with the company said the goal is to create development and production divisions that would churn out long-form content to stream in a bid to compete with Netflix. Apple is hoping to put a headhunting firm on those hires in the coming months, according to source, with the goal of being in operation next year. Unknown is whether the focus is on TV series, movies–or both."

This is not the first time talk of original Apple programming has popped up. In a Seeking Alpha op-ed in April, author Steve Mallas...

Tidal claimed Apple prevented it from streaming Drake's performance, but Drake's management said that's not the case. As with most things, the truth most likely lies in the vast middle ground, and Bryan Chaffin offers his thoughts on what really happened.

Apple reportedly preparing in-house video...

According to a new report out of Variety, Apple is looking to enter the TV and movie production industry in a way similar to how Netflix has recently done. The report claims that Apple has been looking to hire both actors and directors to create production divisions that would produce exclusive long-form content in-house.

Specific details regarding the idea are unclear at this point as it appears to still be in the early stages of development. Apple could potentially charge a monthly subscription price for access to its in-house content, or it could sell it ala-carte like it...

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.

Android Wear on iOS: Setup and first impressions [...

Android Wear finally has iOS support after Google pushed its iPhone-compatible software to the App Store. This means that Android has beaten Apple Watch to the cross-platform game. Or, at least it would, if iOS didn’t restrict it to a state of almost uselessness. The only device officially supported is the LG Watch Urbane although — as we previously revealed — the older generation Android Wear watches do work. I got it set up with my Moto 360, and have been mostly disappointed by my experience so far.

GT Advanced Technologies already laid off around 700 workers when it initially announced its plans to file for bankruptcy. While it’s unclear how many people will be getting laid off in this wave of cuts, the company...

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

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. 

If you don't have a Raspberry Pi, they're available from Amazon (affiliate link) and other sources in kits with a Wi-Fi dongle and pre...

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...

Ransom message from KeyRaider displayed on a jailbroken iPhone. Image via Palo Alto Networks.

Since iOS first appeared in 2007, people have hacked the operating system because they wanted their devices to do more. Now that there are well over 1.5 million apps available that can do just about anything your heart desires, perhaps it's time for the jailbreakers to just cool it. Why? A new piece of malware called KeyRaider that only attacks jailbroken devices is a perfect example -- it has already been responsible for stealing the Apple account info on more than 225,000 devices.

KeyRaider installs itself on jailbroken iOS devices distributed through third-party Cydia repositories in China. Although it appears to be primarily targeted at Chinese-speaking users, it appears to  have already impacted jailbreakers...

Flixel Photos's Cinemagraph Pro for Mac OS X 10.9 and higher is a fun, "living photo" creation software that lets you create Cinemagraph images. However, you'll have to do some preparation before you begin using the software.

But first, some background: Cinemagraph is a hybrid media form that combines the quality of a photograph with moving video. It has elements that don't move (the photograph) and elements that do move (the video). You can find some cool examples at http://cinemagraphs.com .

To use Cinemagraph Pro, you're going to need a good tripod to keep your images steady as you'll make a short video instead of a still image. You also need a camera capable of recording high-quality HD video. Finally, you need a constant light source. If you're outside the sun works just fine. If you're shooting indoors, you'll need something like LED lights.

Android Wear gets iOS support [Updated]

Google has announced that iOS is an officially supported operating system for Android Wear. Users with an iPhone 5, 5C, 5S, 6, or 6 Plus running iOS 8.2 and above will be able to pair with "newer" Android Wear devices, download the app, and be off and running.

Until now, smartwatch platforms from Google and Apple have been ecosystem lock-in devices. If you have an Android phone, you have to get an Android Wear watch, and if you have an iPhone you have to get an Apple Watch. By supporting both OSes, Android Wear will have a much larger potential user base to try and sell a watch to.

Since Google controls the Android operating system, it created specific hooks in the OS for Android Wear to plug into. On iOS—where Google is not in control—things have to be different, don't they? We've been told the iOS experience is "similar" to what users...
