Touchpress releases Molecules by Theodore Gray...

It’s a sort of huge app – and it chews up more than 700 megabytes of space – but it’s also beautifully made and useful as anything.

Touchpress has announced that its Molecules by Theodore Gray app, which was initially used by Steve Jobs to demonstrate the power of the iPad in 2010. Now, its sequel is set to shape the future of the next generation of apps. Created for science enthusiasts and experts alike, Molecules is a fascinating, invaluable guide behind the scenes of our world.

Based on Theodore Gray’s book of the same name, Molecules combines beautiful photography with compelling stories, and adds state-of-the-art simulations so, for the first time, anyone can experience what it’s like to touch, stretch and twist molecules.

The app contains Gray’s book, and incorporates an implementation of the Nanoscale Molecular Dynamics (NAMD) system developed at the...

Xsan 4 will not mount on client

Forums: TroubleshootingTags: Xsan 4 mount client configuration profile

I recently upgraded my MDC and my client computer to Yosemite. I went through the migration process the best I could and created a Configuration Profile on my MDC for my client computer. I installed the profile successfuly but the volume will not mount on the client computer. On the client computer within Profiles, the Xsan Configuration Profile has in red "Unsigned" underneath it, is that what is causing the problem?

Also a few notes: there are two other client computers that haven't been upgraded and are running Maverick and the volume does mount to those computers. The volume is also mounted on the MDC and if I go to Disk Utilities on the client computer I...

Pangu jailbreak for iOS 8.0-8.1 now “stable enough”...

If you are waiting to jailbreak your iOS 8.0-8.1 device until things are "stable enough": we now seem to be ready! ;P en.pangu.io


Jay Freeman (saurik) (@saurik) November 06, 2014

Cydia creator Jay Freeman (better known as Saurik) has tweeted that the Pangu jailbreak for iOS 8.0 to 8.1 is now “stable enough” for use.

We first saw a developer version of the jailbreak last month, with a user version released a week later, complete with Cydia installer. The installer is Windows-only, but it’s an untethered jailbreak, so once it’s done you won’t need to reconnect to a PC following a...

While its unclear why Apple is no longer selling Fitbit products through its retail channels, on the surface the move is...

SEC Launches Investigation into GT Advanced...

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission has launched an investigation into stock trading activity in GT Advanced Technologies dating back to the beginning of 2013. GTAT partnered with Apple to make sapphire glass for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, along with the Apple Watch, but failed to meet its goals and ultimately filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.

The Mac Observer Spin: GTAT's CEO and COO both sold off a lot of stock before the company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, and now the SEC has launched an investigation into trading activity. That could be coincidence, but there's a good chance the SEC wants to know if they were trading inappropriately based on insider information.

Amazon Echo, a Siri for the home

Echo is always on, much like “Hey Siri” or “OK Google”, always listening for its name, a name that you get to choose. Like Siri, you can ask Echo questions or give it commands, as long as they fit into its knowledge domain. Watch the video below to get a sense of how broad that domain really is. And, I suspect, that domain will continue to grow over time.

I think Amazon will sell a ton of these.

Say Play iOS app makes music streaming as easy as...

You’ve long been able to tell Siri to play any track on your iPhone, and the Say Play app gives you the same ability with music you don’t own. Just open the app, hit the red button and speak the name of the track.

To be sure, you could do a voice search in YouTube, but the app appears to simultaneously search several music video sources, and continues to play the track while you’re using other apps. As you’d expect from an app powered by Nuance, voice-recognition is faultless, and in my brief tests it was lightning-fast.

The app costs $0.99 on iTunes.

Apple blocks WireLurker malware apps from opening,...

Apple has now blocked the launching of Mac apps infected with WireLurker malware, after earlier revoking security certificates to prevent them being installed on new devices. WireLurker was capable of infecting non-jailbroken iOS devices when connected to a Mac running one of the compromised apps. Over 400 Mac apps in a third-party Chinese app store were affected.

In a written statement, an Apple spokesperson said:

We are aware of malicious software available from a download site aimed at users in China, and we’ve blocked the identified apps to prevent them from launching. As always, we recommend that users download and install software from trusted sources.

However, a security researcher says that it would be easy for other attackers to exploit the exact same weakness … ...

The Apple Effect: The Leaders Shall Become Followers


Google Wallet reportedly has experienced a sudden surge in use: Weekly transactions are up 50 percent, and the number of new users has nearly doubled in a month. Obviously, the primary explanation for this sudden leap is Apple's entry into the mobile payments world. It introduced Apple Pay in September and rolled it out officially October 20. Google Wallet has been available for real-world use since 2011 -- and it works with all major credit cards. So, was the U.S. market just not ready for mobile payments, or did Apple make it ready?

House on Fire’s The Silent Age is actually a two-part game: The first episode, which is free to play, was released in early 2013, while the second episode, which costs $5, was released just a few weeks ago. You should think of the entire game as a $5 investment, though, because I guarantee you won’t be able to stop after episode one’s cliffhanger.

It’s believed that WireLurker could herald in a new generation of malware on Apple’s desktop and mobile platforms given the following characteristics:
- It is only the second known malware family that attacks iOS devices through OS X via USB.

- It is the first malware to automate generation of malicious iOS applications, through binary file replacement.

- It is the first known malware that can infect installed iOS applications similar to a traditional virus.

- It is the first in-the-wild malware to install third-party applications on non-jailbroken iOS devices through enterprise...

Samsung has caught a lot of flak for—and been taken to court over—some of its iPhone-like smartphone design choices, but nothing the Korean company has ever produced comes close to the shamelessly derivative Lenovo S90. Not only does the S90 seem to take more than a few design cues from Apple’s latest smartphone, but its entire advertising campaign seems to be a carbon copy of Apple’s own.

The latest numbers from advertising company Chitika Insights show that iPad web usage in North America rose nearly 2% in September, marking a slight increase over the third quarter. Chitika found the iPad to have a 79.9% share of tablet web traffic in the United States and Canada during the month, compared to a 78.0% share reported in July.

Despite the marginal increase over the third quarter, iPad web usage in September still suffered a year-over-year decline over the 81% share it held in the year-ago quarter. Amazon, Samsung and Google tablets trailed in second, third and fourth place, with 6.7%, 6.0% and 1.7% shares of tablet web traffic in September.

The data is determined based on a sample of tens of millions of U.S. and Canadian tablet-based online ad impressions running through the Chitika Ad Network.

Macworld:

With the news that Microsoft is making all of its mobile Office apps free—the iPad and upcoming Android tablet versions—you knew there had to be some caveats.

I’m glad I don’t have to use Office any more but for those of you who do, my sympathies and this article will help you figure out this news.

Twelve South Announces SurfacePad Leather Wallet for...

I'm a fan of Twelve South. The company has some of the best styling in the Apple accessories market, and today the company unveiled the SurfacePad for iPhone 6 (and iPhone 6 Plus), a wraparound wallet. Plus, it's leather, and as we established a couple of days ago, I'm also a big fan of leather cases. It has slots for two cards (the site cleverly says, "Room for two cards... and Apple Pay."), and it looks great. It's available in Black, Red, White, or Caramel (I like the first two most, for those keeping score at home). We'll likely review it in the next couple of weeks, but it you can't wait, it's available now for $39.99.

GT Advanced’s recent trading activity under...

GT Advanced disclosed on Thursday that the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission is seeking information about the sapphire glass maker’s trading activity since January 2013 after it filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy last month. GT Advanced’s latest Form 8-K report claims that the company is fully cooperating with the SEC during its investigation.

It was previously reported that GT Advanced CEO Thomas Gutierrez unloaded all of his stock in the company in a sale just one day before the iPhone 6 was unveiled. For several months leading up to the iPhone 6 launch, it was widely believed that Apple would use sapphire crystal glass for its latest smartphones, but that rumor failed...

‘Sports Night’: An oral history, starring Aaron...

EW:

Set in the high-stakes world of a live sports news program, the Aaron Sorkin-scribed dramedy followed the behind-the-scenes exploits of fictional “Sports Night” coanchors Casey (Peter Krause) and Dan (Josh Charles), their brilliant producer Dana (Felicity Huffman), harried associate producer Natalie (Sabrina Lloyd), gruff executive Isaac (Robert Guillaume), and whip-smart researcher Jeremy (Josh Malina).

Such a shame this show wasn’t a hit. While set in a sports world, it wasn’t specifically about sports but about the workplace and relationships much like Sorkin’s other shows. It also had amazing actors and Sorkin’s typical great writing.

Green army men, Rubik’s Cube make “Toy Hall of Fame”

Yahoo! News:

It’s mission accomplished for little green army men.

The molded plastic must-haves for generations of pretend soldiers were inducted into the National Toy Hall of Fame on Thursday, along with the 1980s stumper Rubik’s Cube, and soap bubbles.

Hard to argue with these choices. I loved my little green army men as a kid and still enjoy popping bubble wrap (although, I wouldn’t call it a “toy”). And even though I hated the Rubik’s Cube (I was never smart enough to solve it), it is undoubtedly a classic toy.

Active “WireLurker” iPhone infection ushers in new...

Carrrrrlos

Ushering in a new threat landscape for iPhone users, security researchers have uncovered an active malware operation that compromised the OS X and iOS devices of hundreds of thousands of people.

WireLurker, as the new family of malware has been dubbed, first took hold of Macs when users installed pirated software that had been laced with malicious code, according to a report published Wednesday by researchers from Palo Alto Networks. The trojan then installed itself as an OS X system daemon and waited for iOS devices to connect over USB interfaces. The infected Macs would then grab the serial number, iTunes store identifier, and if available, phone number of the iOS device and send the data to a server controlled by the...

WireLurker Mac OS X Malware Found, Shut Down

msm1267 writes WireLurker is no more. After causing an overnight sensation, the newly disclosed family of Apple Mac OS X malware capable of also infecting iOS devices has been put to rest. Researchers at Palo Alto Networks confirmed this morning that the command and control infrastructure supporting WireLurker has been shut down and Apple has revoked a legitimate digital certificate used to sign WireLurker code and allow it to infect non-jailbroken iOS devices. Researchers at Palo Alto Networks discovered and dubbed the threat WireLurker because it spreads from infected OS X computers to iOS once the mobile device is connected to a Mac via USB. The malware analyzes the connected iOS device looking for a number of popular applications in China, namely the Meitu photo app, the Taobao online auction app, or the AliPay payment application. If any of those are found on the iOS device, WireLurker extracts its and replaces it with a Trojanized version of the same app repackaged with...

Hands On: DUNGEONy (iOS)

When a gamer picks up a video game today, they usually can expect the game to offer lengthy tutorials and the occasional helpful hint when they find themselves struggling. Back in the early days of home video games, retro games were fairly brutal to the inexperienced player. The games themselves offered little to no help as to what to do, and even the instruction manuals proved to be vague, at best. Korigame Entertainment attempts to bring back the frustration of retro gaming for better or worse with their dungeon-crawler puzzler: DUNGEONy....

Review: The Veil from Caudabe is a case that will...

I’m always looking for the best possible case for my needs. I’m not the type of person that requires a bulky case with a lot of drop protection, but it’s nice to have something there to protect against scratches and small dings. The only option I’ve had in the past is to use a skin. It’s not always the best solution though, as a skin is nothing more than a thick sticker that will eventually start to wear and peel up at the edges.

Recently, I discovered Caudabe and their ultra thin iPhone 6 and 6 Plus case, The Veil. This isn’t the most protective case in the world, but it’s the perfect solution to my problem. It offers the same protection as a skin, with the advantages of a case. If your goal is to keep an iPhone clean and thin, there’s no better option…
