Apple DRM Lawsuit Loses Last Plaintiff, but Judge...

UnknowingFool writes: In the Apple DRM lawsuit, the last plaintiff in the case has been disqualified. However, due to the number of potential consumers affected, the judge has denied Apple's motion to dismiss. The plaintiffs' lawyers will have to find a qualified plaintiff. To recap, the suit lost both plaintiffs in the last week when Apple reported to the judge that their iPods were not eligible (iPods must be purchased between Sept 2006 and May 2009). The first plaintiff withdrew when all her iPods were found to be outside the time period. The second plaintiff produced one iPod that was not eligible but two others that were eligible; however, Apple challenged the two eligible ones as the plaintiff could not prove she purchased them. They were purchased by her ex-husband's law firm. Since one of the suit's main claims was that the price of the iPod was raised due to Apple's actions, it was important to establish that she purchased them. At the heart of the case is that Apple's use...

Facebook bringing ‘Trending’ section to iOS,...

Facebook introduced a new “Trending” section on the web in January to display trending stories that are frequently shared and discussed on the social network. Today, the company announced that it has improved this feature by organizing trending topics into five categories so that it’s easier for people to explore stories from different sources.

More importantly, Facebook is bringing the “Trending” section to mobile devices, including all of the improvements to the web version, with support for Android and the web rolling out today and iOS coming soon. The new experience is currently only available to Facebook users in the United States, although other countries are coming soon.

Apple and IBM reveal 10 iOS apps that aim to change...

The way banks, airlines, wireless carriers, and even governments do business could soon change if Apple and IBM have anything to say about it. The two companies now have 10 apps designed to streamline business operations behind the scenes, which may lead to better service for the rest of us.

The new apps are the first wave in a lineup that’s expected to include up to 100 iOS apps for business. IBM is firmly entrenched in enterprise, while Apple’s presence in the halls of giant corporations has been largely unofficial, in the form of employees using their personal iPhones to send company emails. So the two companies partnered up in July to bring their complementary strengths to businesses on iOS.

Business time: Apple and IBM’s partnership yields...

The first wave of iPhones and iPads in the workplace got there because users brought them in, and now Apple is trying to capitalize on the "bring your own device" phenomenon by offering the kinds of things IT managers like: support, manageability, and Serious Business Apps. Those are the kinds of things that the company's partnership with IBM is about.

Today Apple and IBM announced the first wave of business-friendly apps to spring from this partnership—these will generally be of little interest to consumers, but they do give us some idea of the kinds of things IBM is doing for Apple. The list includes apps for pilots and flight crews, bankers, insurance agents, caseworkers, law enforcement, retail managers and...

iPod Antitrust Lawsuit Finds a New Plaintiff

The class action lawsuit alleging Apple used monopoly power to block competitors from getting into the mobile music market is back on track with a new plaintiff. After Apple showed the previous three plaintiffs hadn't purchased iPods during the time frame specified in the lawsuit, attorneys scrambled to find a replacement, and that turned out to be a 65 year old ice dancer from Boston.

The Mac Observer Spin: Apple wants to win this case on merits, not technicalities. Depending on the outcome of the trial next week, we'll know if that was a smart move.

AAPL spending almost all its US cash reserves on...

Analysis by Above Avalon‘s Neil Cybart suggests that Apple is unlikely to accelerate the pace of its stock buyback program as it is already spending almost all of its available US cash stockpile on share dividends and buybacks.

Out of $155B of cash, only $18B is available in the U.S., with the rest sitting in international subsidiaries unable to be sent back unless repatriation tax is paid […] Apple is essentially taking most, if not all, of its free cash flow from U.S. operations and piling it into share buyback.

Cybart does some number-crunching to suggest that Apple is likely to buy back around $30B worth of stock next year, though acknowledges that new product lines like the Apple Watch make it...

A quick check with the Online Apple Store confirms 16GB and 64GB iPhone 6 and 6 Plus versions in all colors are available to ship in 3-5 business days. Interestingly, all 128GB variants are showing slower 7 to 10 day ship-by dates, suggesting a shortage of high-capacity memory modules.

How to pick the best photo editor for your life

Browsing the App Store for new photo-editing software can be overwhelming. There are dozens of image editors, and it’s difficult to tell which is the right
one for your needs.

If you’re already using iPhoto or Aperture, stick with those programs until Photos is released in 2015—it may be all you need. If you’re willing to
pay for more features, here are all the big (and subtle) differences between today’s top image editors to help you choose the software that’s best for you.

iPhoto

This image database and non-destructive editor will be replaced by a new app named Photos in 2015, though it’s still one of the easiest places to import,
manage, correct, and share your photos. Instead of editing your originals, it stores your edit requests in a database, so you can always revert to your
original. It works on a variety of file formats, including raw, and its Adjust panel lets you adjust exposure, color temperature,...

LastPass matches Dashlane with automated password...

After password manager Dashlane grabbed the limelight yesterday with an automated password changer for 50 top US websites, LastPass has hit back with its own version of the same feature. However, while LastPass supports more sites, it falls short of the Dashlane offering by forcing you to change one password at a time, rather than doing all supported sites en-mass, and not yet supporting sites that employ two-factor authentication.

We’re excited to announce that the Auto-Password Change feature we released to our Pre-Build Team last week is now available for all users in beta. LastPass can now change passwords for you, automatically. We’re releasing this feature for free to all our users, on Chrome, Safari, and Firefox (starting with version 3.1.70) […]...

The case, which could have been dismissed if a qualified plaintiff wasn't found quickly, told the court that she had used iPods to help her practice ice-skating maneuvers. The judge, however, still noted that Apple now has "an appealable issue" should it lose the case....

adding client machine into xsan 3.1

Hi All,

I can't seem to add client machines to Xsan server. at the add computer menu, I would click add remote computer, then enter in ip address and click ok. Got past authentication menu, to the choose roles. Not placing a check mark, since I don't want that workstation to be MDC, hit continue and this is the pop up error I'm receiving.

XSAN is on 10.244.128.xxx network, and client is on 10.244.40.xxx. Both on subnet of 255.255.252.0

another strange thing is when I hard set manual IP address on the client machine, it would drop off the network. Only way to bring it online is using DHCP and Xsan is complaining that client needs to be on Static.

Apple dashboard says iOS 8 now runs on about two-...

According to Apple's App Store Distribution dashboard for developers, iOS 8 was running on 63 percent of all iOS devices as of December 8, 82 days after its release in September. The operating system's adoption rate still lags behind iOS 6 and iOS 7's, but it's up a solid 16 percent since we took a look at it two months ago and it now runs on a clear majority of active iDevices.

As we wrote previously, iOS 8's adoption is likely being limited by a bunch of factors: the fact that the update requires a substantial amount of free space to install, early evidence that it was a bit buggy and a bit slower on older hardware, and the fact that there's just more old iOS hardware...

Note that it's not signed-if you have your System Preferences > Security & Privacy settings are set to allow apps downloaded from the "Mac App Store" or "Mac App Store and Identified Developers," Yosemite will squawk. You can launch it by changing those preferences (which I am not advising you to do), or by trying to launch it and then giving it individual permission in the Security and Privacy settings.

The Siri User Guide has posted a killer guide that will help you better control Siri when you're dictating. For instance, when you're dictating to Siri, saying "all caps" in the middle of your spiel will cause the next word to be in all-caps while leaving out the actual command. So, saying "I all caps love summer" will result in "I LOVE summer." There are 59 entires in the Siri Dictation Guide, and it's very handy. Check it out.

Apple Pay today added support for two more banks as Apple continues to slowly roll out support for the more than 500 US banks it said would support the new payments services. The new banks include Fremont Bank and the National Institutes of Health Federal Credit Union.

Fremont Bank, based in Fremont, CA, adds support for Personal debit cards and small business debit cards, according to Apple’s newly updated list of participating Apple Pay banks and card issuers.

T-Mobile announces new $100 unlimited 2-line data...

AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon need to watch out. The “uncarrier” has announced yet another couple of reasons they hope will get you to ditch your current cellular provider for T-Mobile. Today, CEO John Legere and his cohorts have come out to announce that T-Mobile is now offering a 2-line family plan that comes with unlimited talk, text, and 4G data, for $100 a month.

Referencing the fact (at least according to T-Mobile) that “75% of people “hate” monitoring their families’ data usage,” the company wants to offer a plan that’s affordable and yet gives customers the freedom not to worry about how quickly they’re eating gigs. The new plan costs a family of 2 $100 per month, but more lines can be added for an additional $40 apiece.

Additionally, the company has  resurrected its $100 per month plan for four lines,...

Turla Trojan Unearthed on Linux


Turla, a Trojan that has infected hundreds of 32- and 64-bit Windows computers at government institutions, embassies, military installations, educational institutions, and research and pharmaceutical companies over the years, has been found on Linux systems, Kaspersky Lab reported. The company has discovered two variants of the malware running on Linux. The first is a C/C++ executable statically linked against multiple libraries, which increases the size of its files, Kaspersky Lab said.

An Illustrated History of (Mac) OS X

The folks at fournova Software GmbH have published An Illustrated History of Mac OS X. This a wonderful and whimsical collection of images that incapsulates each version of OS X from Mac OS X 10.0 Cheetah to OS X 10.10 Yosemite. Each one incorporates a cat (or other element, in the case of Mavericks and Yosemite) to represent the OS, but each one also includes other reference points that represent the major changes in that version of the OS. Looking at them was an excellent reminder of when things happened, like Safari in Panther and Intel in Tiger. The screen grab below is for Snow Leopard. There's a written description accompanying each image to fill in any gaps. For those keeping score at home, fournova makes Tower, a git client for version control in OS X.

Review: Seek Thermal Camera for iOS gives your...

The evolution of Apple’s iOS cameras has been fairly linear: Apple improved their image quality, added video recording capabilities, and dropped in a small collection of filters, but otherwise hasn’t radically changed their features.

Just in time for the holidays, Seek Thermal Inc.’s new Seek Thermal Camera for iOS ($199) is offering a fundamentally different type of camera for your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. Using a Lightning connector, the Seek Thermal Camera adds affordable thermal photography and videography features to any late-2012 or newer iOS device – the heat-sensitive sort of vision best-known from the Predator movies. While it’s not case-compatible, this accessory is otherwise the most practical thermal camera currently available for iOS devices. (An...

Check your settings: Apple just released a software update for iOS 8 on Tuesday. iOS 8.1.2 includes general bug fixes and, most importantly, fixes a problem that caused ringtones purchased via iTunes to disappear from your device—which has been a known problem since iOS 8.0.2. 

While the update itself won’t bring your ringtones back from the dead, Apple has another way to restore missing purchases: After you install the update, follow Apple’s ringtone restore link (itunes.com/restore-tones) on your device, which will redirect you to iTunes. Follow the on-screen prompts from there.

However, while Macs provide decent enough sound for average use, there’s arguably room for improvement if you’re looking for truly high-quality sound. Enter Boom 2 ($15) from Global Delight, the next generation of the acclaimed system-wide volume booster and equalizer for OS X.

Sculley helmed Apple between 1983 and 1993, and famously battled with Jobs in a power struggle that ultimately led to Jobs resigning and founding NeXT....

Review: STM Skinny Pro for iPad Air 2

We've seen STM's Skinny case for a number of iPads in the past, and it's resurfaced again as Skinny Pro ($40) for iPad Air 2. Skinny Pro is a thin, folio-style case with a tab that can be run through a loop to secure the cover. There's no button or port protection on Skinny Pro, which isn't a surprise. Unlike many iPad Air 2 cases we've seen thus far, Skinny Pro is specifically made for iPad Air 2, not both models of the Air.{/exp:char_limit}

And it also reveals who screenwriter Aaron Sorkin had in mind for the leading role in Jobs: Tom Cruise.

Based on e-mail messages in the Outlook mailbox of Columbia Pictures Chairman Amy Pascal, which made up nearly half of the latest leak of documents by the group calling themselves “the Guardians of Peace,” it was ultimately Director Danny Boyle’s choice of Michael Fassbender for the...

Wired:

The car, Bloodhound SSC, marks a bold attempt to set a new Land Speed Record of 1,609 kph (1,000 mph) by 2016. If successful, it will not only mark the biggest jump in land-speed history, but will also be the culmination of a decade-long experiment in education and open engineering.

What a great story about the engineering challenges of trying to push a car, and I use that term loosely, faster than any has ever gone before.

Let’s go crazy: Inside the making of Purple Rain

The Verge:

In an age where fans expect direct relationships with the artists they love, Prince has turned himself into a reclusive legend. But 30 years ago, he was still a young artist on the cusp of releasing his greatest record — and former Vibe and Spin editor-in-chief Alan Light’s Let’s Go Crazy: Prince and the Making of Purple Rain documents how the record and film came to be.

I’m all kinds of biased as a huge Prince fan but I think the album is still amazing and listen to it at least once a month. The movie doesn’t hold up as well but it’s still a lot of fun to watch every now and then.

iOS 8.1.2 released, will keep your ringtones from...

Apple posted iOS 8.1.2 this afternoon, the second patch for iOS 8.1 and the fifth for iOS 8 overall. The update is available for all devices running iOS 8, including the iPhone 4S, 5, 5C, 5S, 6, and 6 Plus; all iPads except the first-generation model; and the fifth-generation iPod Touch. Download the update over-the-air or through iTunes—the latter is the better option if your device doesn't have enough free space to install the update.

This one looks pretty minor—the only listed bug fix is for an issue that could cause ringtones purchased through iTunes to disappear from your device. They won't do that anymore, and visiting a "Restore Tones" page on your phone should restore them if you've been affected by the problem. Any other bugs that have been patched are apparently too minor to mention.

Apple is already...
