Mobile Malware's Growth Slows, Nastiness Grows

The good news about mobile malware in 2015 is that growth has slowed down. The bad news is that the malware entering the market is more virulent than ever. While there hasn't been a sharp rise in the volume of mobile malware this year, the increasingly malicious nature of the types of malware and attacks is alarming, Blue Coat Systems said last week in its 2015 Mobile Malware Report. "Ransomware is getting more evil, more robust, similar to the evolution it followed on the desktop," said Chris Larsen, a senior malware researcher at Blue Coat.

For comparison, iOS 8 had only hit 60% by the end of November last year, took until late December to get to 64% and January...

KGI: Apple releasing a new 4-inch iPhone early next...

Generally reliable KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has today shared an investment note in which he breaks down what Apple will do in terms of its smartphones come 2016. In the note, Kuo claims that Apple is still working on a refreshed 4-inch iPhone model…

Kuo says that the 4-inch iPhone “resembles an upgraded iPhone 5s” and features an A9 processor. The design of the device is somewhat unclear from Kuo’s report, but he hints that it will feature a metal casing as opposed to the plastic design featured on the iPhone 5c.

Furthermore, Kuo anticipates that Apple’s 4-inch iPhone will not feature 3D Touch in an effort on the company’s part to clearly differentiate it from the...

GT Advanced reaches new agreement w/ Apple to pay...

More than a year ago, Apple’s sapphire supplier GT Advanced Tech announced that it was filing for bankruptcy under Chapter 11, with the company parting ways with Apple as part of the restructuring.

Ahead of the highly anticipated release of Fallout 4 on November 10th, Bethesda, the company behind the game, has released a new app called Fallout C.H.A.T. While it’s not an actual messaging app, or even an actual keyboard, it’s a neat way for fans of the popular Fallout series to communicate with one another.

C.H.A.T. stands for Communications Hub and Transmitter and the app itself consists of 60 different emoji characters and animated GIFs featuring the Vault Boy character. Users of the app can build their message within C.H.A.T., then export it to the communication app of their choosing as an image. In addition to choosing emoji and GIFs to send, users can also add text via a...

Notable apps and app updates for November 3, 2015

On a regular basis, Apple World Today posts a list of notable new apps or app updates that have been released. They may not necessarily be new, but they're popular and deserve mention. Here are today's picks for iOS, tvOS, and Mac OS X:

iOS Apps/Updates

Ilium Software has announced eWallet 8.2. The $9.99 wallet app has been completely updated to support the new mulitasking features in iOS 9 on the iPad and upcoming iPad Pro. eWallet now takes advantage of the Slide Over and Split View multitasking features so that the eWallet screen can now be shared with Safari, Mail, Photos, or any other app that supports these new features.

iOS 9.2 beta 2 brings AT&T Wi-Fi calling to the...

Apple has built support for AT&T’s NumberSync technology into iOS 9.2 beta 2, which was released to developers earlier today. Currently Apple’s Continuity feature allows users to use their Mac, iPad, or iPod touch to make phone calls as long as the computer (or other iOS device) is connected to the same Wi-Fi network as their iPhone.

The software upgrade will allow users to enable Wi-Fi calling on all of those devices and make and receive calls without the need to be on the same network, or even in the same area.

Below you’ll find steps to setup and start using the feature now.

Apple TV App Store gets Top Charts section of...

The new Apple TV App Store is becoming more similar to the iOS App Store by the minute.

On Tuesday, several Apple TV users spotted that the new tvOS App Store now has a dedicated Top Charts section. Similar to the iOS App Store, the tvOS Top Charts includes top free apps, top paid apps, and top grossing apps. 

When the fourth-generation Apple TV shipped last week with the all-new tvOS, it did not include a Top Charts section, presumably because Apple did not have enough user data to populate the charts.

Is Apple TV a Worthy Upgrade? Sort Of

For Apple TV fans, the new Apple TV is the long-awaited upgrade we've been pining for, and while it's a welcome addition to my living room, I'm only half as impressed as I thought I would be. After spending some quality time -- and some not-so-quality time -- I'll share my experience, which, it turns out, all comes down to this: The new Apple TV is an excellent set-top box, and it provides a foundation for the app-centric living room TV experience of the future... but damn, Apple, you spent how many years not getting this thing polished?

While iOS and Android have for the most part caught up to one another from a software feature perspective, lack of a handy back button is still one of the biggest sources of embarrassment for iOS devices. BoxWave’s new glass “ClearTouch SmartButtons” screen protector has built-in buttons that aim to solve some of the back button issue on iPhones, so I took it for a test drive…

Android has long had a system-wide physical or software “back” button, conveniently located in an easy-to-reach bottom corner that takes the user back to the last used screen. Apple, however, has a back button in the upper left corner that only works within apps and not system wide....

The million dollar iOS hack (isn’t)


Reports emerged yesterday that a security exploit broker paid $1,000,000 for a browser-based iOS 9 attack, setting a record for buying and selling a computer exploit, at least in public. Security firm Zerodium announced the news via its Twitter feed, and stated that the exploit is an “untethered jailbreak” that works on all the latest versions of iOS.

As is typical with Apple security stories these days, you shouldn’t be overly concerned, but it should raise a few hairs on the back of your neck.

As always, Mogull writes clearly and non-technically about these issues. With his background in security, he offers up many details in this post that will have many of you shaking your head.

Tweetbot on the Apple Watch; United Airlines Watch...

A couple of app updates today brought a surprise and an update to a useful travel app. 

First, Tweetbot for iPhone was updated to version 4.1, bringing Apple Watch support. Users can now view activity on their timeline and send tweets from the Watch. 

The United Airlines app now has some fun new features in the form of Watch complications allowing users to add travel details to the Watch face. The gate where your flight will be leaving from and your flight status can be viewed with a glance at the Watch. 

Every day it seems like something new, fun and useful arrives on my Watch. It's fun to see it turning from an interesting toy to a very powerful tool!

Samson Meteorite: The little USB mic that could

Samson Meteorite. Photo ©2015 Steven Sande

For podcasters, it's all about the microphone. That's why we always go with big honkin' USB mics with shock mounts, multiple pickups, and the works. Me? I use a studio-grade Blue Mic Spark Digital ($199.99 at Amazon, affiliate link) that I love -- it does the best job of picking up my voice and making it sound great. But I'm always on the lookout for a good spare mic, something I can tuck away in a bag or drawer in case something happens to my big microphone. The Samson Meteorite ($39.99 at Amazon, affiliate link) is a tiny, ball-like condenser mic that might just fit the bill as a spare... or for your main microphone.


My first impression when I saw the Meteorite was that it looked like a tiny version of the Blue Mic Snowball. The...

The update follows the massive Tweetbot 4.0 launch at the start of October which included a redesigned iPad version plus iOS 9-specific features and more.  The new Tweetbot 4.1’s Apple Watch app is made for watchOS 2 and lets users compose new tweets, view recent activity, respond to mentions, and view profiles. Tweetbot for Apple Watch also enhances the way notifications look with a richer, custom appearance.

Apple releases first tvOS 9.1 beta for new Apple TV

Just a few days after the retail launch of the fourth-generation Apple TV set-top-box, Apple has seeded the first beta of the device’s first software update to developers. The new version, labeled tvOS 9.1, is available for download via the developer center, much like iOS and OS X betas have been seeded. The release notes for tvOS 9.1 indicate improvements coming to WiFi network compatibility, in-app-purchases for App Store apps, and improved scrolling. This update needs to be downloaded to a computer and then installed to the set-top-box via a USB Type-C cable. Apple today also seeded the second betas of iOS 9.2 and OS X 10.11.2 to developers.

Apple today released the second iOS 9.2 beta for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch to registered developers. iOS 9.2 beta 2 follows the initial iOS 9.2 beta release just one week ago. The update is available over-the-air through the Settings app for developers already testing the release. The prior release contained few changes including extension support on Safari View Controller. The release notes only highlight bug fixes and improvements.

iOS 9.2 beta 2 continues to improve Safari View Controller, which lets you open web pages inside other apps using full-blown Safari. The second beta...

Bravery medal for girl, 5, who saved mom, brother in...


A five-year-old girl’s bravery in saving her mother and baby brother following a car crash last summer was recognized in a ceremony at Edmonton police headquarters Monday.

The SUV careened down a 12-metre embankment, slammed into a tree and came to rest on its roof. The Royal Canadian Humane Association described how Lexis awoke to her 10-week-old brother’s cries.

After unsuccessfully trying to wake her mother, she took things into her own hands.

What an amazing little girl.

Gadget Ogling: Titanic Tablets, Eminent Earphones,...

Samsung certainly is testing the boundaries of what a tablet can be with its latest device, the Galaxy View. The Galaxy View houses an octa-core, 1.6-GHz processor, 2 GB of RAM, and either 32 GB or 64 GB of storage, which is expandable through a microSD slot. Owners may expand the functionality with a nano-SIM card for on-the-go connectivity, and Samsung also promises up to 8 hours of video playback on a single battery charge. That all sounds well and good, but consider the following: This Android device is an absolute monster.

It's a wallet, it's a battery pack, it...

Here's a quick note for today. In between emails for NaNoWriMo specials on Scrivener and a press release for a new FDA-cleared lubricant that enhances fertility (yes, that has sooo much to do with Apple...), I saw something that caught my attention. The folks at Nomad are introducing a bifold men's wallet that has a 2400 mAh battery pack and MFi certified Lightning cable built into it. The Wallet for iPhone is available for pre-order now for $79.99 and will retail for $99.99 when it comes out on November 16. 

That's enough to recharge an iPhone 6s one time, so in a pinch you just grab your wallet, plug it into the iPhone, and you're back in business. Wallets are always an appropriate and useful holiday gift, and the Wallet for iPhone is doubly useful. It'll be available through Nomad's website, Amazon, and in...

Plex on the new Apple TV


There truly isn’t any other platform we’ve wanted to be on for as long as we have the Apple TV. Today’s the day, and we’re celebrating. The app is free in the app store for everyone, and requires the latest media server.

The instant the fourth generation Apple TV was announced with an app store, we here at Plex pumped our fists in the air with excitement, as we raced to download the new Xcode and read the developer documentation.

I used Plex in its original iteration but not since. It’s come a long way and many readers will swear by the software and be very excited by this Apple TV version.

Review: Bowers & Wilkins’ Zeppelin Wireless...

I don’t envy any vendor of legitimately premium audio accessories made for Apple’s devices. After established audio companies including Bose, Klipsch, and Bowers & Wilkins demonstrated that Apple device owners were willing to pay $300, then $400, then $600 for all-in-one speaker systems with increasingly better sound quality, Beats by Dre materialized, hooking people on expensive, stylish, and sonically underwhelming alternatives. Between Beats and the Bluetooth revolution, it seems clear that the speaker market is all about flash and convenience rather than audio quality… right?

Of course not. There have always been low-end, mid-range, high-end, and ultra-premium audio options; Beats has succeeded at capturing (a lot of) low- to mid-priced customers. By comparison, the respected British speaker maker Bowers & Wilkins focuses on the upper end of the scale. It literally established the high-end Apple speaker category with its original...

Inateck 2.5-inch HDD enclosure with USB-C

Yesterday I reviewed a USB-C to USB adapter that's perfect for the 12-inch MacBook. Today I'm taking a look at something else that is a great accompaniment to the little MacBook -- the Inateck FE2008C 2.5-inch Portable HDD Enclosure with USB-C (US$24.99 through Amazon - affiliate link). 

What Inateck has done is to create a tiny, tool-free hard disk enclosure that works with any standard 2.5-inch SATA HDD or SSD. Want a speedy backup drive for your MacBook? Grab a 1TB, 7200 RPM HD for about $75, slap it into the enclosure, plug it into your MacBook and use Disk Utility to prep it for use. 

The cool thing about this enclosure is that it's extremely easy to swap out drives. You could theoretically also have a 2.5-inch SATA SSD hanging around that you want to use for saving video content; just dismount and unplug the HDD, slide open the enclosure, pull out the HDD and push in the SSD. ...

1Password launches public beta for teams

AgileBits, makers of 1Password, recommends robust password selection and protection. Thus, it stuck in its craw, says Jeff Shiner, the company’s chief, that its business users had no simple and secure way to share collectively used passwords or secrets to which one user might need to grant access to others on occasion or when unavailable. 1Password for Teams is a result of chewing on that problem and talking to its existing customers. It’s been quietly in the works for nearly two years, and entered a public beta on Tuesday.

Teams gain access to account information useful for a group of people.

Plex has just launched a proper app for the new Apple TV, letting users stream their videos and music from a networked PC or storage drive.

The app is available for free on the 2015 Apple TV, but won’t be coming to older Apple TVs because they don’t support the new App Store. Users of older Apple TVs can still access their Plex content through a rather elaborate workaround.

With Plex, users can store their personal videos, music, and photos on a computer or NAS drive. Plex’s free server software then transcodes and streams those files to Plex’s client apps on other devices, such as Apple TV. It’s basically a way to access a large media library on devices that don’t offer a lot of storage or don...

Twitter ditches stars for hearts to become less...

Every social network has a way of letting you show that you like, love, or agree with a post. Facebook has the thumbs-up sign. Instagram has hearts. Since 2006, Twitter has used bright yellow stars, known to users as favorites, to let people show appreciation for tweets. But the platform is under pressure to add new users and prove it’s not just a torrential flood of news that’s impossible to keep up with, so its new solution: replace stars with hearts.

The difference between hearting this baked potato and marking it as my favorite is huge.

The animated biography of Steve Jobs

Gotta hand it to the folks at QuartSoft. They have some amateur animators in their Marketing Department who came up with a 19-minute animated biography of Steve Jobs. As Jobs' life progresses, there's a timeline showing other highlights of the tech age below. To quote the QuartSoft folks, "We hope this post will inspire young people to keep on changing our world for the better with their innovative minds, artistic taste, and entrepreneurial instincts. Thank you, Steve, for letting us enjoy the perfection of the products you created for us. RIP."

Twitter officially kills off favorites and replaces...

The Verge:

Twitter’s “favorite” button, the service’s primary way for users to signal agreement, acknowledgement, laughter, support, and occasionally (and perversely!) utter hatred, is officially dead.

The company said today that it is replacing favorites with “likes,” to be represented in its apps and on the web by red heart icons. The changes, which also apply to Twitter-owned Vine, represent the company’s latest effort to simplify the user experience as it looks to attract new users.

“We want to make Twitter easier and more rewarding to use, and we know that at times the star could be confusing, especially to newcomers,” product manager Akarshan Kumar said in a blog post. “You might like a lot of things, but not everything can be your favorite.”

I’m not sure how this change will make Twitter “easier and more rewarding” for new users. We’ll all get used to it eventually but, personally, I like the idea of “favoriting” more than using the Facebook “...

Why can’t the world just pick one design for plugs?

Atlas Obscura:

When you travel internationally, power outlets provide a pretty good reminder that you’re not in Kansas anymore.

Outlets vary wildly depending on the part of the world, both in the shape of their sockets and the voltage with which they’re compatible. For those who travel across multiple regions, it can be frustrating. And it’s probably too late to solve this problem, because of decisions made more than a century ago.

If you don’t travel internationally, you won’t know the aggravation of the world’s power outlets. Here is an interesting video about the British outlets and why they may be the best design.

To start, QuickShot now has multiple folder support, so you can load images from any folder you want and switch between them right in your menubar. Along with that, we’ve now added custom filters, search, sorting options, and themes to make QuickShot even more customizable.

Last year, Microsoft announced unlimited OneDrive storage for Office 365 customers. Now, Microsoft has recanted, limiting Office 365 users to 1 TB of OneDrive storage, slashing the free tier from 15 GB to 5 GB, and replacing the 100 GB and 200 GB paid plans with a 50 GB plan for $1.99 per month. Microsoft blamed “abusive” users, who sometimes used over 75 TB of data storing backups, movie collections, and DVR recordings. In other news, Microsoft is apparently monitoring what users store in OneDrive.

Making use of the company’s deep neural network tech (commonly known as AI) Inbox by Gmail will soon start giving suggested responses whenever you receive an email. That means that, instead of typing out entire sentences, it’ll offer three suggestions it thinks you’re most likely to use based on the email you...

Wireless carrier T-Mobile is taking another crack at beefing up users’ connections by providing miniature cell towers that can be installed in homes.

The company is now providing its 4G LTE CellSpot tower, which operates in a range of 3,000 square feet and allows up to 16 devices on T-Mobile’s network to connect automatically for voice calls (including voice over LTE), text messages, and data.

This is one of three solutions T-Mobile offers to subscribers with poor connectivity at home or at work. The carrier’s Wi-Fi CellSpot can route calls and texts over a local Wi-Fi network, while a 4G LTE CellSpot Signal...

Review: Apple's 21.5-inch iMac with 4K Retina...

Apple's marketing team didn't need to dig deep to dream up a campaign for the new 21.5‑inch iMac with Retina 4K display -- its best feature is in the name. The stellar ultra high-resolution screen mates well with Apple's chosen internals, but it would have been best if the company didn't cheap out with the slow base HDD model.

Fitbit says sales unaffected by Apple Watch as...

Fitbit CEO James Park says that the company’s sales have been unaffected by the Apple Watch, as the company announced Q3 revenue up 168% year-on-year, reports the Guardian.

On a conference call with investors, Park said that the rollout of other smart watches, which often come with a step-tracker similar to Fitbit’s main function, did not have impact on the company’s growth. When asked about Apple’s new watch specifically, he said it had “no material impact”. He added that Apple and Fitbit cater to “two very different segments in the market” in terms of price point and use and that “there’s room for more than one dominant player.”

While there is no current overlap in pricing – Fitbit devices start from...

Apple’s planned manufacturing spend suggests a huge...

While most analysts are expecting Apple to comfortably beat its holiday quarter guidance of $75.5-$77.5B, one large firm of analysts goes much further.

An investment note by Morgan Stanley seen by Business Insider says that an analysis of Apple’s financial report suggests that the company could be gearing up for quarterly sales totalling as much as $84.4B.

The clue, claims the company, is the company’s off balance-sheet spending commitments.

Apple’s last quarterly report revealed $29.5 billion in off balance-sheet commitments, and $7.3 billion in other commitments, at the end of the September quarter.

These usually represent money that Apple is planning to spend on parts and manufacturing equipment.

It should be...

Nomad debuts Wallet for iPhone, hiding a 2400mAh...

With thousands of generic battery packs now on the market, it takes something special to make a new option stand out, and Nomad’s new Wallet for iPhone certainly succeeds. Shaped like a standard bifold wallet, the Wallet hides a 2,400mAh battery pack in its spine, as well as a 3″ Made for iPhone-certified Lightning cable.

Nomad notes that the goal was to produce a wallet that wasn’t any thicker than what “guys are already sitting on.” Made from Saffiano leather and measuring 4.7″ by 3.5″ by 0.75″ when closed, Wallet can hold six cards and a bunch of cash, in addition to providing at least a full recharge for pre-iPhone 6 models of the iPhone, and around 100% for the just-released...

Apple granted patent for accessing digital media

Apple has been granted a patent by the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office for “accessing digital media.” It allows for movies, music, photos, and more to be shared across a network.

According to the patent — which was filed in 2012 —  a client requests media information from a server so the client can create a local representation of the server's database. The client is then able to manage the media information locally. When the client selects the desired media, it requests the selection from across the network. The server then delivers the selected media.

In the patent filing, Apple notes that the ability of computers to be able to share information is of “utmost importance in the information age.” Naturally, networks are the mechanism by which computers are able to communicate with one another. Generally, devices that provide resources are called servers and devices that utilize those resources are called clients. Depending upon the type of network, a device might...

Speaking in his first major interview since the formation of Alphabet, Google co-founder and now Alphabet CEO Larry Page said that both he and Steve Jobs had been right in their different approaches to running their respective companies.

Steve Jobs had argued that Google was doing too many things, and should adopt Apple’s focused approach of doing a few things really well. Page said both approaches worked.

He was right. He did fine as well […] We’re trying to make a company for entrepreneurs [we’re trying to] think creatively.

Page said that part of why the company has its fingers in so many pies is that each time Google...

Activision acquires the company behind Candy Crush...

Activision Blizzard has agreed to acquire the company behind the popular Candy Crush Saga and Farm Hero games, King Digital Entertainment, for $5.9 billion in cash. King Digital’s games consist of a community of more than 340 million unique users. Activision, of course, is the company behind hit console games like the Call of Duty series.

King Digital closed with a $4.7 billion market capitalization on Monday, meaning Activision is paying a 26 percent premium to acquire the company. That’s less than, however, the price at which King Digital went public last year.

Activision’s motivation to purchase King Digital comes in that it is lagging dramatically in the mobile...

Apple TV App Store adds Top Charts section, confirms...

When the new Apple TV launched last week, one notable omission in the tvOS App Store were Top Charts like we are used to seeing on iOS devices. The obvious reason for this omission seemed to be that Apple didn’t have enough data collected to populate top charts, but now that appears to have changed…

Users of the new Apple TV have noticed a new section in the device’s App Store that lists the Top Charts for tvOS applications. Just like on iOS, the Top Charts tab breaks down the Top Paid, Top Free, and Top Grossing applications.

As we noted this morning, the Top Paid charts are heavily dominated with games, a feature new to the fourth-generation Apple TV. The first place spot, however, is held by Simple X, a third-party Plex client that will likely slide down the charts as more people realized...

Somebody Just Claimed a $1 Million Bounty For...

citadrianne writes with news that security startup Zerodium has just paid a group of hackers $1 million for finding a remote jailbreak of an iPhone running iOS 9. Vice reports: "Over the weekend, somebody claimed the $1 million bounty set by the new startup Zerodium, according to its founder Chaouki Bekrar, a notorious merchant of unknown, or zero-day, vulnerabilities. The challenge consisted of finding a way to remotely jailbreak a new iPhone or iPad running the latest version of Apple's mobile operating system iOS (in this case iOS 9.1 and 9.2b), allowing the attacker to install any app he or she wants app with full privileges. The initial exploit, according to the terms of the challenge, had to come through Safari, Chrome, or a text or multimedia message. This essentially meant that a participant needed to find a series, or a chain, of unknown zero-day bugs."

Google's engineers are striving to help the cars react, especially as children's behavior can be unpredictable.

Apple Watch is $50 cheaper if you also buy an iPhone

For the first time since it launched, Apple is cutting the price of the Apple Watch but only if you end up spending more at the Apple Store.

On Monday CNET reported that some Apple Stores have started selling the Apple Watch with a $50 discount if customers purchase it along any new iPhone. Currently, the bundle discount is only available in select Apple Store locations in Northern California and the Boston metro area.

This limited-time promotion is only available in stores and not online at or on the Apple Store iOS app. Furthermore, you can’t get the $50 discount when purchasing the most expensive Watch models, the Apple Watch Edition and the Apple Watch Hermes.
