USB-C is coming along and a lot of nice things are being said about the technology, but there hasn’t been a ton of verification and certification, especially among cheaper cables.

This may change soon.

Under its new program, the USB Implementers Forum will test and certify USB-C cables, chargers, and other devices. End-user products — such as computers and mobile phones — will be able to cryptographically verify that the cable or charger to which it is connected has been certified and has not been tampered with.

In recent years, consumers have faced a plethora of cheaper but faulty power adapters, miswired cables that can short out connected electronics, and even cables that install malware or conduct man-in-the-middle attacks on...

An anonymous reader shares an insightful story on Buzzfeed News: Mark Zuckerberg isn't running for president of the United States, but you could be forgiven for thinking otherwise. On Tuesday morning, the Facebook CEO kicked off the company's annual developers conference in San Francisco with a glancing shot at Donald Trump, followed by a reiteration of the company's oft-repeated pledge to bring the world together. Zuck's not alone. Last month Apple CEO Tim Cook led his keynote with a similar stump-speech vibe. He dove right into the company's national security and privacy fight against the FBI. Two weeks ago Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella told attendees of the company's annual Build developers conference of plans to "move our society forward," asking "profound questions" of his developers:"Is technology empowering people or is it displacing us? Is technology helping us preserve our enduring values such as privacy, or is it compromising it?" Google CEO Sundar Pichai hasn't delivered...

As I’ve written several times before, streaming video has a “what to watch” problem. There are so many streaming apps and services, each with their own video selections and menu systems, that the decision can feel paralyzing.

Of all the attempts I’ve seen to address this issue, a new iPhone app called MightyTV comes closest to getting it right. Instead of just serving a random list of recommended videos—as too many other “what to watch” apps do—MightyTV tries to focus on videos you’ll like, and on streaming services you already use.

Many media outlets reported that the FBI used Israeli firm Cellebrite to gain access to the iPhone 5c connected to the San Bernardino terrorism case, but The Washington Post is now reporting that the FBI instead hired professional “gray hat” hackers, paying them a one-time flat fee. The hackers had discovered a previously unknown software flaw, which was then used to develop a piece of hardware to crack the iPhone’s passcode without erasing the data after 10 failed attempts. Meanwhile, pressure is mounting on the FBI to disclose the vulnerability it used, although the exploit is applicable only to the iPhone 5c running iOS 9.

The plot continues to thicken.

A group of unnamed sources cited by the Washington Post contradict the widely-held belief that it was Israel-based mobile forensics company Cellebrite which helped the FBI hack into the locked San Bernardino iPhone. The report say that the agency was instead approached by a group of freelance hackers who revealed an iPhone passcode vulnerability to the FBI in return for a one-time fee.

The researchers, who typically keep a low profile, specialize in hunting for vulnerabilities in software and then in some cases selling them to the U.S. government. They were paid a one-time flat fee for the solution.

The story goes back to a $15,000 invoice sent from Cellebrite to the FBI around the time the FBI...

External Link: Amazon Announces Kindle Oasis

Amazon has announced a premium entry to its Kindle e-reader lineup: the $289.99 Kindle Oasis. It’s designed to be held one-handed like a folded paperback, with a wedge-shaped hand grip that recalls the original Kindle, although Amazon brags that the screen is 30 percent thinner than any previous model. Since it’s intended for one-handed reading, the screen automatically rotates depending on which hand you’re holding it with. The Kindle Oasis will come with a leather charging cover that helps the device stay charged for months. While it’s unclear how much better it is than the $119.99 Kindle Paperwhite or $199.99 Kindle Voyage, some Kindle Oasis configurations are already delayed to ship after the 27 April 2016 launch date due to high demand.

Apple’s Safari is the second most popular web browser, according to the U.S. government's Digital Analytics Program (DAP). It accounts for 21.9% of visits to government websites over the past 90 days.

The most popular web browser choice of 2.05 billion visitors was, drum-roll please, Google Chrome with 43.1%. In third place, counting every version from Internet Explorer (IE) 6 and below up to IE 11, was IE with 20.1%. In fourth and fifth place were Firefox (8.2%) and Android’s native browser (1.6%).

How is the often-underestimated Safari in second place?

Writing for ZDNet, Steven J.Vaughan-Nichols explains: “While 61.1% of users came to government web sites are using desktops--and the vast majority of them are running Windows—19.1% of all visitors are using iPhones. Of that number, I'd speculate that the...

FBI Paid Professional Hackers One-Time Fee To Crack...

There's another new wrinkle in the never-ending FBI vs Apple saga. The Washington Post is claiming that FBI did not require Cellebrite's assistance in hacking San Bernardino iPhone. Instead, the report claims, the government intelligence organization bought a previously unknown security bug from a group of professional hackers. According to the report, the hacker group provided FBI with at least one zero-day flaw in the iPhone 5c's security, which enabled FBI to circumvent the lockscreen and other security features. The bug hasn't been disclosed. FBI has previously noted that the technique it utilized in breaking into the iPhone 5c does not work with any new iPhone models (iPhone 5s or newer).

The new information was then used to create a piece of hardware that helped the FBI to crack the iPhone’s four-digit personal identification number without triggering a security feature that would have erased all the data, the article adds. The FBI didn’t need the services of the Israeli firm Cellebrite, as previously believed, according to the Post. The U.S. government now has to decide whether to disclose the flaws to Apple.

We’ve reported in the past that non-compliant USB-C cables and devices can damage or destroy connected hardware. To address this problem, the USB 3.0 Promoter Group has announced the USB Type-C Authentication specification, a cryptographic authentication standard for USB devices. A phone equipped with USB-C authentication could reject a connection to a non-approved charger, for instance, if it hadn’t been certified as meeting necessary specs. However, the authentication protocol could also be used to prevent devices from connecting to fully compliant devices that didn’t meet some other business requirement. That would let companies restrict access to only verified USB storage devices, but could also allow manufacturers to lock customers in to a proprietary ecosystem of approved devices. In short, beware the unintended consequences!

Ahead of the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Show next week, Adobe has revealed new features across its Creative Cloud tools for video editing, motion graphics, audio and collaboration. The CC tools are compatible with Mac OS X and Windows systems.

With Adobe’s digital marketing tools TV networks and pay-TV providers can drive viewer acquisition, engagement and monetization as audiences embrace “over the top” (OTT) content via connected devices such as the Apple TV, Sony PlayStation, Roku and Microsoft Xbox.

While iOS 9.3 fixed a bug that "bricked" iOS devices when the date was set to Jan. 1, 1970, and iOS 9.3.1 fixed flitches with iOS 9.3 there’s a variation on iOS 9.3 that can remotely brick later devices as soon as they connect to a WiFi hotspot, reports KrebsonSecurity.

Researchers say they’ve proven how easy it would be to automate the iOS bricking attack over a network, so that potential victims would need only to wander within range of a hostile wireless network to have their Apple devices turned into useless bricks. So if you haven’t upgraded to iOS 9.3.1, do so immediately.

Apple has begun offering corporate customers in India two-year lease plans for the iPhone SE and iPad starting at 999 rupees (about $15) per month, reports The Economic Times. The Cupertino, California-based company is also offering iPhone 6 and iPhone 6S on similar leasing plans for two years at Rs 1,199 (about $18) and Rs 1,399 (about $20) a month, respectively.

Corporate users can, at anytime, move from one iPhone to another, and pay the change in monthly fee as per the model. Apple has had this model running in India for over a year, but the company “appears to be driving it this time around, given the increased India focus and great sales results the fastest growing smartphone market has produced last year,” according to The Economic Times.

How-To: Quickly switch between audio input and...

If you have multiple audio inputs or outputs connected to your Mac, then you’re probably aware that you can visit System Preferences to manage and switch between interfaces at will. But wouldn’t it be nice if there was a quicker way to switch to a set of speakers or a microphone without venturing all the way into the Sound panel of System Preferences? In this post, we’ll share with you a handy shortcut that we use every day to do just that. more…

External Link: Apple Pulls Third-Party Reddit...

Apple recently pulled most third-party apps for the popular social-news site Reddit from the App Store, drawing the ire of many of the site’s users, especially since the just-launched official Reddit app was spared. Apple apparently suddenly decided that it didn’t like that many of these apps — some of which had been in the App Store for over a year — contained a switch that let users choose whether or not to display content tagged NSFW (Not Safe for Work). However, Apple has now readmitted many of those apps in which the developer has removed that switch — users must now control access to NSFW content via the Reddit Web site preferences. Apparently, even an NSFW switch is, in Apple’s view, Not Safe for the App Store, which seems overly paternalistic.

External Link: AirPlay Coming to Android with the...

AirPlay has been a standard iOS and OS X feature for years, but it’s not an open standard. As a result, it has been available in Google’s Android mobile operating system only via often-flaky third-party apps. But HTC’s upcoming HTC 10 smartphone will include AirPlay support out of the box, integrated into the HTC Connect service. This is presumably being done without Apple’s involvement, so it will be interesting to see how well the HTC 10 sends audio and video to Apple TVs and other AirPlay receivers.

The cool cats at DisplayMate have just released their usual insane analysis of the 9.7-inch iPad Pro and confirmed that this is the best iPad display to boot, but have also hinted that this could lead towards iPhone 7 screen upgrade possibilities.

In its report, which compares the new device to not only current iPads but also other top tablets from Microsoft, Samsung and others, DisplayMate shows how the new iPad achieved record results for its display in a number of categories, including: “Highest Absolute Color Accuracy for any display for Both Color Gamuts (1.35 JNCD), Lowest Screen Reflectance for any mobile display (1.7 percent), Highest Peak Brightness in a full size Tablet for any Picture Level (511 nits), Highest...

Opinion: Here’s what I’d do to rationalize Apple’s...

Apple has long been about simplicity and minimalism. Steve Jobs’ philosophy was effectively that usability trumps choice. Sure, you lose the ability to customize your iPhone or iPad in the way you can an Android device without jailbreaking it, but what you gain in return is a device that is both more reliable and a lot more secure.

Jobs applied that same philosophy to Apple’s product range. When he returned to Apple in 1997, one of the first things he did was to rationalize the company’s product lineup, paring it back to the essentials. In 2008, he proudly told Fortune that “Apple is a $30 billion company, yet we’ve got less than 30 major products.”

Apple has, for the most part, maintained that approach ever since, famously saying ‘no’ to a thousand product ideas for every time it says ‘yes.’ But I still think there’s a little more work to be...

Facebook just can’t stop adding new features to Messenger leading up to the F8 Developer Conference on Tuesday. The world’s most popular social network just added Dropbox integration to Messenger on Android and iOS so you can share photos, videos, and other files inside Messenger without leaving Facebook’s chat app. The new feature is rolling out now, but it may take a few days before it arrives on your phone.

To see if you have the new feature, first make sure you have both the latest Messenger and Dropbox apps on your device. Once that’s done, tap More in Messenger and look for Dropbox as an option. If it’s there, you can tap it to access your Dropbox files inside Messenger.

Juicy Bits delivers Bez, a powerful vector graphics...

It's great when a developer creates a new product that provides yet another reason for people to do more work on the iPad and especially the iPad Pro. That's the case with a new vector graphics editor released today. Bez (free, $7.99 in-app purchase to unlock all features) is designed to create and export vector graphics on Apple's tablets, and it looks like a winner.

According to Juicy Bits founder Michael Swanson, Bez has its roots in a search for new features to add to Halftone 2 -- a perennial Editor's Choice in the App Store and the flagship app of Juicy Bits. The developers found that one of the features users wanted was a way to edit the WHAM, BAM, and POW sound effects found in comic books, which are usually created by comic book artists using tools like Adobe Illustrator. Bez evolved into...

Some folks say iOS devices such as the iPad Pro will replace the Mac. Apparently not anytime soon. While tablet sales continue to decline, overall Mac marketshare during the March quarter continued to grow globally during the first quarter of 2016, according to the latest research data from Gartner and IDC.

According to Gartner, the Mac’s worldwide computer market share was 7.1% during the quarter, up 1.5% year-over-year. In the U.S., Apple has 12.7%, up from 11.9% a year ago. Gartner’s stats are based on global sales of 3.1 million Macs in the first quarter of 2016. 

According to IDC, the Mac’s worldwide computer market share was 7.4% during the quarter, up 6.7% year-over-year. In the U.S., Apple has 13%, up from 12.7% a year ago. IDC’s stats are based on global sales of 4.5 million Macs in the first quarter of 2016.

The Business Journal says Cupertino, California-based company and its contractors have been working out a network of industrial projects throughout the South Bay. Buildings have been nicknamed Zeus (king of the Gods of Mount Olympus), Rhea (mother of the gods)Medusa (monster, a Gorgon, generally described as a winged human female with a hideous face and living venomous snakes in place of hair), Athena (Greek goddess of wisdom and good counsel, war, the defense of...

BBC launches iPlayer Kids, a child-friendly version...

British parents have long known that handing your kids an iPad full of children’s TV shows is a good way to keep them quiet for a while appropriately entertained and informed. The BBC has made that job even easier today by launching a special iPlayer Kids app. The iPad app, which has a user-interface suitable for young children, features only age-appropriate TV shows.

The new child-friendly app is safe and easy to use. With over 10,000 episodes being made available this year alone, it has all of BBC Children’s world-class content in one place, allowing kids to discover and enjoy both new and old CBeebies and CBBC favourites including Wolfblood, Blue Peter, The Dumping Ground, Topsy & Tim and Go Jetters.

Each child in the family creates their own profile, complete with their age and a cartoon character to represent them, and the...

Many folks weren’t happy when Apple replaced its old dock connectors with the reversible Lightning cable (so imagine the outcry if the rumors of upcoming iPhones eliminating the audio jack are true), but Lightning has made life easier for iPhone and iPad users. The MicFlip, which is purportedly the world’s first reversible micro-USB cable, is designed to do the same for Android (and other non-iOS smartphone) users.

The MicFlip (pronounced “Mike-flip”) works in any orientation, so it’s work whenever you attempt to plug in a micro-USB device — even if you’re fumbling in the dark. Featuring a hardy aluminum shell, gold plated plugs, and a braided cable (that’s strong and tangle free), the $19.99 cord is available in 20cm, 100cm, and 200cm version and silver, gold, and red/black flavors. 

If you have an Android smartphone, you’ll love the handy MicFlip. Or you could switch to an iPhone and really...

London’s Metropolitan Police service has apparently abandoned plans to issue iPad minis to 15-20,000 frontline officers after spending a total of £6M ($8.58M) on a trial of just 641 devices. This means that the trial ended up costing the taxpayer £9,360 ($13,397) per iPad.

The Inquirer obtained the information using a Freedom of Information request.

The Met spent £1.2m on hardware during that time, including the iPads and supporting servers and accessories, £4.1m on custom software development, which included the databases to support mobile operations, £600,000 on business and management activities and £100,000 on licences. The costs also include the replacement of 12 tablets during the trial period …

2016 may be the year that WiGig finally takes off (...

Research and Markets (www.researchandmarkets.com) says 2016 may be the year in which 802.11ad (better known as WiGig) finally takes off. But will it arrive on Macs this year?

WiGig isn't aimed at replacing your wireless network. Instead it's designed to aid your existing Wi-Fi by providing a fast, direct link between devices. More on that in a moment. 802.11ad marks the coming of 7Gbps wireless. Data transfer rates are purportedly over 10 times the maximum speed previously enabled within the IEEE 802.11 standard.This involves fast speeds over short distances; 802.11ad will deliver 7Gbps speeds over 60GHz frequencies.

WiGig is so fast that it can be used as a "wireless bus extension." In other words, it can wirelessly substitute for hardware inside your Mac. Imagine a hard drive sitting on your desk -- or near your desk -- but not physically connected to your computer. If both your Mac and the HD were WiGig enabled, the...

MAZ launches Home platform for the Apple TV

MAZ, a New York City-based startup, has released a new platform called Home, which is designed to enable any media provider to distribute their video content on an Apple TV.

CEO Paul Canetti says that, in many ways, Apple TV is reminiscent of the early days of iPhone, where the App Store enabled newer and smaller brands to emerge and establish an audience. Using MAZ's Home platform, “brands of any size can quickly and easily create apps with a fraction of the time and cost it would take with traditional custom development,” he adds.

"There were phones before apps, but no one remembers them,” Canetti says. ”The way we thought about phones back then is the way we think about TV today. Apps are going to dramatically change that, and we want to make sure that anyone with video content can be at the forefront of that change”

Following on the heels of recent MAZ product releases like Wear, a platform for...
