How a Twitter hack taught me to take online security...

Michael Steeber, 9to5Mac:

When I went to sleep last Monday night, I had no idea that I’d open my eyes to dozens of confusing notifications and my Twitter account taken over by a security hacker group. It caught me completely off guard, but it didn’t have to be that way.

Hopefully by relaying my story and some hard lessons I learned along the way, I can help you avoid the same situation as you manage the safety and security of your online accounts and data.

Great read. Some important lessons learned.

Why talk of a $1000 iPhone is overblown

Jan Dawson, Tech.pinions:

There’s been a lot of talk about Apple releasing a $1,000 iPhone next week, and a lot of pushback from financial analysts in particular on the idea that people would actually buy such a thing.

And:

In the US, the vast majority of premium smartphones are sold through the major wireless carriers, with the largest four being AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon Wireless. Each of those companies has been through a transition over the past few years away from the traditional subsidy model, under which customers paid a portion of the price of a phone up front, to a combination of installment and leasing models, where the cost of the phone is broken up into monthly payments.

And:

Compare that to current monthly prices for the base model iPhone 7 Plus, a phone that costs roughly $200 less to buy outright, which run from $25 to $36, and you’ll see that the real difference in price between a $770 phone and a $1000 phone isn’t $...

The app also supports the MacBook Pro's Touch ID sensor.

iLocker for Mac 1.0 costs $19.90 and requires macOS 10.11 or higher. It’s available exclusively at the ProtectStar website.

Get your Marvel, Star Wars fill now. In 2019, they’...

CNBC:

Marvel and Star Wars titles will be streamed exclusively on the new Disney streaming platform when it launches in late 2019, according to Disney CEO Bob Iger.

“I have described a very rich, treasure trove of content for this app,” Iger said at the Bank of America Merrill Lynch 2017 Media, Communications & Entertainment Conference in Los Angeles on Thursday. “We’re going to launch big, and we’re going to launch hot.”

This is a chess move. More than anything else, it will impact Netflix, who have made waves with Marvel series such as Daredevil, Luke Cage, and Jessica Jones. Presumably, Netflix will lose the rights to carry these series once the Disney platform goes live in 2019.

It’d be interesting to see if Apple can make a deal with Disney to carry the Disney stream on Apple TV. After all, Apple has long had a historically close relationship with Disney, with Steve Jobs as the founder of Pixar and, before his death, as one of Disney’s largest...

iTunes U collections moving to the Podcasts app

Apple has announced that iTunes U collections are moving from iTunes U to the Podcasts app on your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Apple TV, or the Podcasts section of iTunes on your Mac or PC.

iTunes U provides free educational content from leading schools, universities, museums, and cultural institutions to users throughout the world. Collections contain free lectures, language lessons, audiobooks, and more. iTunes U public courses contain free content designed around a single course subject.

After the move, iTunes U will no longer appear in iTunes on your Mac or PC and you won't be able to download new content to your computer. You will still be able to access iTunes U content, however:

To access iTunes U collections, use the Podcasts app on your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Apple TV, or go to the Podcasts section of iTunes on your Mac or PC. Content might be categorized differently than it was previously, but you'll be able to find content by searching for the...

Longtime Mac users have one trick that they use to be able to share almost anything with anybody -- Droplr. This utility has taken the work out of digital collaboration for years, and it keeps getting better. The only problem is that the cost of a subscription can be restrictive for small workgroups. Worry not! The Apple World Today team is here to get you a 4-year subscription to Droplr for up to 3 people for only $39.99. That's a heck of a bargain, since it would normally cost you $399.96!

Western Digital wants Apple funding in its bid for...

A group including Western Digital is seeking around ¥50B (about US$464 million) from Apple to help finance a bid for Toshiba’s memory chip unit, the Kyodo news agency reports.

Sources said earlier in the week that the U.S. firm offered to step back from the consortium's financing in return for a stronger position in their joint venture, and was hoping to get Apple to pitch in for funding. However, it’s uncertain whether other parties in the consortium would pay more to cover for the 15 billion yen that Western Digital had previously planned to pay as part of the bid, according to Kyodo.

Toshiba is spinning-off its core memory chip business and has been seeking outside investors in it. Apple is apparently interested as the move...

Rumor: iPhone 8 could be in rare supply until early...

Apple’s “iPhone 8”, complete with an edge-to-edge OLED display and facial recognition, may be a bit hard to get a hold of for a while following “extended supply shortfalls and shipping delays,” as reported by The Wall Street Journal.

The production problems have led to a setback of “about a month” in Apple’s manufacturing timetable, but Apple supplier Foxconn is ramping up development and working to hire new employees.

The report supports a statement made months ago by KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who stated that iPhone 8 units would be in rare supply until early 2018. Other rumors have pointed towards problems with the display lamination process and other high-tech components like the 3D sensor embedded at the front of the device.

It’s also been stated that the OLED assembly proved a major reason for the delays.

Per one source:

Apple and its suppliers also ran into trouble manufacturing the OLED displays. The display modules are...

Ten years ago, the tech world shifted dramatically with the arrival of the first pocket computer, better known as Apple’s original iPhone. The combination of touchscreen hardware and a sophisticated, dynamically adjustable interface sparked a mobile revolution that re-ordered the landscape of many industries – and forever changed how people use technology.

Everything from mobile app stores to the Bring Your Own Device revolution at work to the creation of Android and a new tablet industry followed from that iPhone and the operating system it ran.

Apple patent hints at a Siri Remote with Touch ID

Apple has filed for a patent (number 20170256110) for “electronic device operating using remote user biometrics” that talks of aSiri Remote for the Apple TV that sports Touch ID or some sort of biometric identification. It also hints at smart home devices with such tech.

In the patent filing, Apple notes that electronic devices often have a lot of manually controllable features and settings that users may modify from time to time. For example, a television may include operational controls such as power, volume, channel, screen brightness and so on. 

Other electronic devices such as thermostats may include controls that operate air conditioners, heaters, and fans. Other examples of electronic devices with manually controllable features and settings may include laptop and desktop computers, smart phones, tablet computers, home automation controllers, security systems, vehicles, appliances, televisions, set top boxes, and so on.

Yesgo: a slim, inexpensive, shockproof cases for the...

Yesgo says its shockproof cases for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are the thinnest around. I can’t vouch for that, and they’re wider than some (more on that later), but they are quite svelte and are a steal at the price (you can get ‘em at Amazon for about $13).

The cases pack inner and outer layers of shock absorption made of solid TPU rubber and PC for double protection. They also sport raised bezel lips with a tempered glass screen protector that safeguards the phone’s screen and cameraagainst drops and bumps.

One of my favorite things about the Yesgo case is their tactile feel. They provide a non-slip, tire-like pattern on both sides that offers a comfortable grip while still allowing easy access to all buttons and most cables.

My least favorite thing about the Yesgo case is that it’s too wide (at least on my iPhone 7 Plus) to fit in...

What to expect from Apple’s September 12th event

Enlarge (credit: Andrew Cunningham)

Apple's annual September product event is happening Tuesday, and all signs point to it being huge. First, it'll be the inaugural event for the Steve Jobs Theater on the new Apple campus. Second, the company is expected to release three new iPhones, which is a change from recent norms. Third and most importantly, the iPhone 8 will be the showstopper of the event. It's expected to look very different than any iPhones that came before it, it'll sport a bunch of new features never seen before on an Apple handset, and it'll probably be expensive, too.

New iPhones aren't the only announcements to come on Tuesday: we'll likely see a new Apple TV and an updated Apple Watch. After the announcements made at...

The Netflix Standard plan lets you stream on up to two devices at once in HD resolution. Is there any limit to T-Mobile’s aggressive pricing? In any case, the fierce competition that CEO John Legere is bringing to mobile continues to be fun to watch.

External Link: Secrets of the Steve Jobs Theater

The first event at the Steve Jobs Theater on Apple’s new campus is set for 12 September 2017, and Bloomberg has a look at the room’s impressive gadgetry. The theater includes two elevators that rotate so that visitors will enter and exit from the same side. It also features retracting walls that hide a demonstration room where journalists can sample Apple’s latest wares after the presentation. And each of the 1000 seats is estimated to have cost $14,000. All it needs is a shark tank underneath the stage to double as the lair of a James Bond villain. Just imagine Tim Cook pushing a button while intoning, “I’m sorry, Mr. Nadella, but we won’t be needing Microsoft Office anymore.”

Samsung saw its share of China's smartphone market drop in the second quarter, while Apple claimed the top spot. According to the Korea International Trade Association (KITA), Chinese customers owned 48 million Samsung cellphones as of the end of June, while 171 million owned iPhones.

Chinese brands, including Huawei, Oppo, Vivo and Xiaomi, ranked second to fifth, according to KITA (http://m.yna.co.kr/mob2/en/contents_en.jsp?cid=AEN20170906008200320), with 132 million, 124 million, Vivo with 108 million and Xiamoi, respectively. Samsung placed sixth on the list.

Premium phones worth 4,000 yuan or more accounted for only 6.4% of the total second-quarter smartphone sales, with iPhones taking up an overwhelming majority, according to KITA. Nearly 63% of phones sold in the Chinese market in the quarter were low- and mid-end products with a price tag of less than 2,000 yuan (about US$305.60...

Although Apple debuted the App Store in 2008 — allowing a flood of games to land on the iPhone, iPod touch, and later the iPad — it wasn't until 2012 that the first Apple-authorized game controller appeared in the form of the Duo Gamer — a good concept hobbled by very limited game support and an unsustainable price tag. It took another two years after that before other players entered the market, first SteelSeries with its Stratus and Stratus XL game controllers, and then Mad Catz with its C.T.R.L.i and C.T.R.L.i Micro, after which the iOS game controller market once again got fairly quiet, with SteelSeries introducing Nimbus for the Apple TV in 2015, but little else. Now, another two years later, Kanex has thrown its hat into the ring with GoPlay Sidekick, a $60 pocket-sized controller designed specifically for iOS devices that packs in a rechargeable battery and includes a case that also doubles as a stand.{/exp:char_limit}

Sacconaghi thinks customers will tolerate up to a three-week delay on the premium iPhone model (shown in fanciful mock-ups). However, a delay into the start of 2018 could turn away holiday shoppers looking for a new phone. 

"If the phone is materially constrained once we hit the holiday season, post-October 15, then it's worrisome," Sacconaghi said during CNBC's Fast Money.

Rezakhani, also 28, pleaded guilty in July 2016 to mail fraud, bank fraud and filing a false tax return after being accused of defrauding Apple Inc AAPL.O, a small bank and various shippers in connection with his iPhone resale business.

This guy is crooked in everything he does.

The Quill Apple Pencil Case from Pad & Quill

The Apple Pencil is an odd little beast. With no built-in way for it to nestle with its natural partner — the iPad Pro — the Pencil has a tendency to wander. The accessory artisans at Pad & Quill have come up with The Quill Apple Pencil Case (US$39.95), a very chic way to keep your Apple Pencil nearby and looking good. Here’s “Mr. P” (Brian Holmes) talking about The Quill:

Design

Brian just told you all about the design features of The Quill Apple Pencil Case, but in case you didn’t want to watch the video, we’ll reiterate them. First, it’s made of 100% American full-grain leather. Let’s Make American Cows Great Again! The leather is put together with marine grade stitching. 

Available in Galloper Black, Whiskey and Chestnut finishes, The Quill is just 7-1/8 x 3/4 inches in size. Magnets are hidden in one side of...

Global Cyberattack on Energy Sector Stokes Deep Fears


The hacker group known as "Dragonfly" is behind sophisticated wave of recent cyberattacks on the energy sectors of Europe and North America, Symantec reported Wednesday. The attacks could provide the group with the means to severely disrupt energy operations on both continents. Dragonfly launched a simililar campaign from 2011 to 2014, but it entered a quiet period in 2014 after Symantec and others exposed its activities. The current campaign began in December 2015, Symantec noted.

iPhone's Summer Production Glitches Create...

Yoko Kubota, Tripp Mickle, and Takashi Mochizuki, reporting for WSJ: Apple's new iPhone, which is expected to be unveiled Tuesday, was plagued by production glitches early in the manufacturing process this summer, according to people familiar with the situation, which could result in extended supply shortfalls and shipping delays when customers start ordering the device later this month (alternative source). New iPhones are typically in short supply when first released. But if shortfalls of the new phone extend beyond the initial sales period, which is expected to begin September 22, they could weaken analysts' and investors' projections for sales in the crucial holiday period. The production glitches led to a setback of about a month in the manufacturing timetable. Foxconn, the Apple contractor that assembles iPhones, has been ramping up production at its manufacturing complex in Zhengzhou, China. The company is paying bonuses to employees who can help bring new hires on board at...

Comment: How a Twitter hack taught me to take online...

Ask anybody about the importance of online security and data management, and you’ll probably hear similar advice. Back up your files regularly. Don’t use the same weak password everywhere. Enable two-factor authentication. A digital life necessitates a layer of precautions that can be repetitive and even exhausting to maintain. It’s easy to brush off the warnings we’ve all heard hundreds of times because “that’ll never happen to me.” Until it does.

When I went to sleep last Monday night, I had no idea that I’d open my eyes to dozens of confusing notifications and my Twitter account taken over by a security hacker group. It caught me completely off guard, but it didn’t have to be that way. Hopefully by relaying my story and some hard lessons I learned along the way, I can help you avoid the same situation as you manage the safety and security of your online accounts and data.

This is going to be an incredibly long process, so the money needs to be managed wisely.

Trump is waiting six months before ending the program and has called on Congress to legislate a replacement.

Report: the UK averages one iPhone for every two...

finder.com, a personal finance comparison website with over three million users worldwide, has shared research with Apple World Today with some interesting stats about iPhones to celebrate the upcoming release of the “iPhone 8.” 

Apple doesn't release UK sales numbers, finder.com estimates 32 million iPhones have been bought in the UK since 2011. That's one Apple smartphone for every two people in the UK. 

However, as much as the UK loves Apple, finder.com also finds that iPhones, on average, cost £36.40 more in the UK than the U.S. The website estimates that British buyers have spent £1.2 billion more than U.S. customers in total. (Apple has offered no concrete explanation for these pricing differences that I know of).

The number of iPhones purchased was estimated by finding the number of new iPhone users, and adding that to the number of existing iPhone users who would want an upgrade. You can find the...

While the lead suggests Apple is having trouble making the redesigned iPhone altogether — which is hitting stock — the story as a whole largely echoes what regular readers have been following this summer. The WSJ describes iPhone 8 production as about a month behind schedule, but claims iPhone maker Foxconn is offering bonuses to employees who can bring in new hires.

Video: Apple Watch loads Frogger onto an Atari 2600

Our buddy Niles Mitchell (AKA napabar on YouTube) is back with another one of his fun videos. This time, Niles is using a Starpath Supercharger plugged into an Atari 2600 game console, connected to a small Bluetooth receiver that's linked to his Apple Watch. With a tap on the Apple Watch, he quickly loads Frogger onto the Atari console and away we go!

By the way, it's always somewhat nice to know that the Atari 2600 is really an ancient piece of technology -- it was released on September 11, 1977, before I graduated from engineering school! I was just 19 years old at the time. 

The Supercharger added a whopping 6KB of RAM to the 128 bytes of storage built into the Atari 2600. 128 bytes...
