Apple CEO to speak at White House cyber summit

The Hill:

Apple CEO Tim Cook will speak at the White House cybersecurity summit Friday at Stanford University, according to an event invitation.

The White House is expected to reveal its next executive action on cybersecurity at the summit, which will bring together tech executives, leading academics and government officials to discuss ways in which the government can better collaborate with the private sector on cybersecurity initiatives.

Cook’s remarks will come amid a debate between tech companies and law enforcement officials over encryption.

Encryption and security is becoming more and more important to everyone on the internet – business, consumers, and governments. It will be interesting to see if anything concrete comes out of this summit.

JetBlue will become the first airline to accept...

Passengers on select JetBlue flights will be able to purchase food and drinks using their iPhone, USA Today reports. Customers will also reportedly be able to use the payment service to upgrade to any open premium seat once the flight has started.

Payments will be handled by airline employees using iPad minis with NFC-equipped cases. Over 3,500 of these devices have been issued to JetBlue staff. The cases will also accept regular credit cards, and will serve as a full replacement for the existing in-flight payment terminals.

Apple internet services chief Eddy Cue told USA Today that the move was likely to cause other airlines to follow suit:

Bringing the disposable camera to the iPhone

We all snap pictures like crazy these days and post them to a number of sharing sites. But there was a time when you would be so excited to get your roll of film back to see what pics you shot. Mari and Linda Johannessen are bringing that experience back with a new app for iPhone. You can take 24 pics, but you can’t review them. When the “film roll” is full, you send it away and get back 24 developed prints, delivered to your physical mailbox, within a week.

Report: Connected Vehicles Vulnerable to Hack Attacks


Motorists in the United States are increasingly at risk of cyberattacks and violations of privacy, as more and more technology is added to their cars. A report released on Sunday by the office of Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) listed a number of key findings that are based on responses from 16 auto makers to a letter sent to them by Markey's office. While the Markey report praised some voluntary privacy principles adopted by two industry groups, it also raised some questions about them.

“Silver” brings Apple’s Swift language to the .NET...

Fans of Apple's Swift language can now use their newly developed skills to write software for systems supporting both .NET and Java, including Android.

The Silver compiler, currently in beta, compiles Swift programs to run in the .NET and Java runtimes. It can also produce native binaries to run on OS X. With Silver, Swift developers can share their business logic and non-interface code across the different platforms.

Silver won't, however, permit full cross-platform apps to be developed. The company behind Silver, RemObjects, promotes the use of native development: iOS apps should use iOS user interface libraries so that they feel right on iOS. Similarly, .NET apps should use Windows' user interface libraries, and Java apps should use the Android or Java libraries as appropriate. The justification is that this will produce interfaces that are familiar to the users of the various...

How to amaze your Valentine without screwing over...

The Consumerist:

The floral wire services, FTD and Teleflora, were very relevant in 1910 and 1934 when they began, respectively. These companies, along with 1980s upstart 1-800-Flowers, now dominate the industry by advertising their national brand and squeezing local florists. While these companies, and mail-order services like Proflowers, blanket the airwaves and Web pages with ads showing off their great deals before major flower-giving holidays, they are not the best choice to get the best bloom for your buck.

We have long recommended that flower-givers follow this basic process

Definitely buy your significant other, male or female, a flower arrangement. But do your best to support your local flower merchant.

Owners of Samsung smart TVs need to watch what they say if they've activated the voice recognition feature on these devices. The feature may transmit some voice commands, together with information about the device, to a third-party service that converts speech to text, Samsung's global privacy policy warns. If voice recognition is going to be on all the time, "that seems like really poor design, and certainly represents a privacy risk," said Justin Brookman, director of the consumer privacy project at the Center for Democracy & Technology.

Alphonse Swinehart:

In our terrestrial view of things, the speed of light seems incredibly fast. But as soon as you view it against the vast distances of the universe, it’s unfortunately very slow. This animation illustrates, in realtime, the journey of a photon of light emitted from the surface of the sun and traveling across a portion of the solar system, from a human perspective.

This visualization of the speed of light and the realization that, on a galactic scale, it’s actually really slow, is all kinds of mind boggling.

Longtime Apple users speak fondly of the Snow Leopard (10.6) release of OS X. Even though it came with "no new features," it won users over by reducing the footprint of the OS and focusing mostly on refinement. A report from 9to5Mac's well-sourced Mark Gurman claims that Apple is taking a similar approach with iOS 9, focusing on fixing bugs and optimizing performance rather than adding another big stack of new features to the pile.

The report isn't specific about what Apple will be doing to accomplish those goals, but in any case it's a departure from the release-first-fix-later approach Apple normally takes with iOS. iOS 7's biggest problems were addressed by...

This is interesting.

Medical company DexCom says that a glucose monitor made by the company that monitors blood sugar levels will be supported by the Apple Watch. The company is currently working on an app for the wearable that will be able to show blood sugar levels at a glance and can monitor them continuously.

The app has apparently been under construction for some time and while the Food and Drug Administration is generally required to approve new medical hardware, a hands-off approach to the companion app has allowed developers to sink their teeth into its creation for the time being.

Conventional glucose monitors require the user to prick their skin with a needle in order to draw a drop of blood to place on a test-strip, a process that is inconvenient and which generates only isolated readings. The DexCom monitor uses a tiny sensor embedded just under the...

When Apple enters a new business, you know it’s not going to do so in a half-hearted, small way.

With Apple’s deep integration of Beats into its existing iOS/iTunes ecosystem exclusively revealed by Mark Gurman added into the mix, I wonder whether the unique selling points being notched up by Apple could be enough to leave existing big-name players like Spotify, Google Play and Rdio dead in the water?

That’s rather a grand idea, of course. As of last month, Spotify reached 15 million paid subscribers–...

Rumor: Apple to quietly launch updated non-Retina...

If you’re hankering for an updated MacBook Air, there may be some good news on the horizon.

According to a new rumor, Apple may be refreshing the current MacBook Air as early as February 24th. Swedish web site Leterm svetem Applem, citing sources from the Czech reseller network, states the update will come with no fanfare or keynote presentation, unsurprising considering a lack of major changes for the lineup. Apple also won’t discuss the long-rumored ultra-slim MacBook Air around the launch of the new refresh, hoping the “quiet” update tides users over until later in the year.

The update itself might include only minor bumps to areas like storage and processing power, with Apple choosing from 2.2GHz Core i5-5250U, 1.8GHz Core i5 chip, and 2GHz Core i7 processors, while keeping the well-known 11- and 13-inch form factors of current MacBook Airs. Intel launched the new...

While I’m not an active target of abuse, I have waded into the GamerGate controversy, although purchasing about $8 in songs hardly seemed like something done to harass. Perhaps it was a “pilot fish,” an attempt to probe at a weakness, see if it could be exploited, and then used for worse ends? One of the songs was Mike Oldfield’s “Tubular Bells,” better known as the theme to the movie The Omen,...

There was a strange moment during Twitter’s fourth-quarter earnings call when the company’s chief financial officer, Anthony Noto, was trying to explain how the network lost 4 million monthly active users in the quarter. Noto off-handedly attributed the loss to trouble with iOS 8’s rollout, specifically Twitter integration with Safari, before quickly turning to other metrics.

iOS 8 doesn't automatically pull tweets into Safari's Shared Links anymore.

OS X 10.10.3 beta points toward better emoji...

Photos for OS X is the biggest change introduced in the first beta build of OS X 10.10.3, but the folks at MacRumors have discovered another: preliminary support for better diversity in emoji.

The implementation looks like the one laid out in a Unicode Consortium draft proposal published in November. That proposal calls for a selection of five color swatches, which, when combined with a "base" emoji like a man or woman's face, can change that emoji to display different skin and hair colors. Apple's early implementation is full of blank and placeholder images, but it looks like certain emoji are getting a dropdown menu that will allow users to choose from among several versions of the same basic emoji.

The update also includes other...

New York Times:

Researchers at Weill Cornell Medical College released a study on Thursday that mapped DNA found in New York’s subway system — a crowded, largely subterranean behemoth that carries 5.5 million riders on an average weekday, and is filled with hundreds of species of bacteria (mostly harmless), the occasional spot of bubonic plague, and a universe of enigmas. Almost half of the DNA found on the system’s surfaces did not match any known organism and just 0.2 percent matched the human genome.

I’m never taking the New York City subway ever again.

New ways to do your to-dos

This week’s app roundup includes a couple of offerings that help you stay on target with your task list—plus games, a reading list manager, photo apps, and more.

Chordana Composer

The $3 Chordana Composer lets even the most unschooled musicians make memorable music—you just enter two bars of the melody in your head (either by playing on a keyboard, arranging the notes yourself, or singing into your iPhone’s microphone) and the app begins to build the actual song for you. You can guide the app by letting it know the song’s genre, and edit the finished product to your liking.

Why Tesla is poaching Apple employees

Tesla wants the best minds in tech, from engineers to designers to lawyers, so it’s knocking on Apple’s door.

The Silicon Valley electric car company has recruited more than 150 Apple employees to join its ranks over the last few years, according to a Thursday Bloomberg report, including some high-ranking execs like Apple hardware designer Doug Field, now VP of Tesla’s vehicle program, and former Apple retail strategist George Blankenship. (Blankenship has since left Tesla.)

Tesla CEO Elon Musk reportedly views himself as a creative genius akin to Steve Jobs. He has the same leadership style at Tesla that Jobs was famous for, demanding perfection in every tiny detail, changing his mind at the last minute, and hiring only the best of the best. (Jobs believed that A-team employees would do their best work only if surrounded by other A players.) And while...

Steve Jobs biopic release date announced

The Steve Jobs biopic has a release date.

Universal Pictures will release the long-anticipated Steve Jobs movie on October 9. The upcoming biopic, based on Walter Isaacson’s official biography of the late Apple co-founder, is directed by Danny Boyle and stars Michael Fassbender as Steve Jobs and Seth Rogen as Steve Wozniak. Universal took over the film in November.

The filming of the movie began last month in the garage of Steve Jobs’ childhood home, and will reportedly also take place at two auditoriums and a restaurant in the Bay Area. The movie will be focused upon three main scenes, including the unveiling of the NeXT computer, the debut of the original Mac, and the introduction of the iPod.

Stay tuned for additional details as they become available.
