Hands On: Meat Factory (iOS)

In a time where apps attempt to rival today's handhelds, gamers have become fairly used to robust content within an iOS game. However, sometimes a players just crave a simple, straightforward, fun arcade game to occupy their time. With the success of popular games like Flappy Bird, arcade-style apps have a strong foothold again on mobile, often being touted as good "between class" or "lunch break" games. If a player is looking for another arcade game to add to their collection, Meat Factory, by Steve Cable, is a fiendishly fun game that fits the bill....

Apple blurs lines between online and retail stores...

With new Senior Vice President of Retail Angela Ahrendts in charge of operations, Apple is further blurring the lines between its online and physical retail store services. We reported earlier this year on Ahrendts’s plans to more seamlessly integrate both paths of Apple retail, and now the Cupertino-based company is rolling out a revamped Genius Bar and product support reservation system.

The new system eliminates the pre-existing separation between getting support for Apple products online and in-store. Previously, users could use Apple’s online support panel to receive phone, chat, or forums-based support. The creation of Genius Bar in-store appointments was handled via a separate system…

Apple and its Beats by Dre group seem to be close to announcing a new pair of headphones: a Bluetooth version of their popular Solo2 headphones. Earlier this year, Beats launched the Solo2 wired earphones as a cheaper alternative to the Studio cans. Today, a wireless version has been revealed thanks to the Federal Communication Commission’s (FCC) testing department.

As can be seen in the image above from today’s FCC filing, the design of the wireless model is akin to the wired model. The only difference appears to be the Bluetooth connectivity. The documents specify that Bluetooth 4.0 Low-Energy technology is utilized.

Interestingly, these documents indicate that these headphones are Apple-branded:

Unsealed GTAT Testimony Paints Apple as Bully...

Judge Henry Boroff followed through on his plan to release previously sealed documents in the GT Advanced Technologies bankruptcy case that it and Apple had both agreed should stay secret. The documents paint Apple as a strong-arm bully imposing onerous terms on GTAT and its sapphire glass production, and claim the iPhone and iPad maker engaged in bait-and-switch tactics during contract negotiations.

The Mac Observer Spin: It would be easy to compare Apple to Darth Vader, but it's really more like GTAT is Jar Jar Binks.

As scheduled, the court overseeing GT Advanced's bankruptcy has unsealed more documents regarding the relationship between the sapphire supplier and former client Apple, which it blames for ultimately causing the collapse. In an unedited affidavit from GT COO Daniel Squiller, Apple is accused of using a "bait-and-switch" strategy in which it offered "an onerous and massively one-sided deal" in 2013. He says that Apple originally promised to buy sapphire furnaces for GT and let them operate them, but later demanded a "fundamentally different deal" in which Apple would only lend the furnaces and...

Since GT Advanced Technologies declared bankruptcy in early October, the vast majority of documents detailing its deal with Apple to supply sapphire crystal have been under seal.

On Tuesday, Judge Henry Boroff issued an order unsealing an statement signed by GTAT CEO Daniel Squiller as well as its attached documents, which include details on the reasons GTAT filed for bankruptcy and its business relationship with Apple, its largest creditor. On Friday, the Squiller statement entered the public record.

There’s never been any doubt that Apple plays hard ball with its suppliers. I’ve spoken to many companies who have to deal with the company and the stories all have one thing in common – you don’t negotiate with Apple. They dictate the terms to you.

Developers will be able to start creating those later this year, with a second phase for fully native apps to begin next year.

Apple Drops Fitbit Products from Online Store

Apple has quietly dropped Fitbit's fitness trackers from its online store, hinting at a growing rift between the two companies over HealthKit support. There isn't any official word on why Fitbit's products are gone, but other fitness trackers that support HealthKit are still available.

The Mac Observer Spin: It seems Apple isn't interested in selling fitness trackers that aren't HealthKit-compatible, and Fitbit isn't interested in supporting Apple's fitness management platform. Losing out on Fitbit won't hurt Apple, so now the question is whether or not Fitbit makes enough sales outside of Apple stores to absorb the loss.

The malware does no harm to the Macs it infects but when the computer connects via USB to an iOS device -- an iPhone or iPad -- it delivers its malicious payload.

SEC Launches Investigation into GT Advanced...

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission has launched an investigation into stock trading activity in GT Advanced Technologies dating back to the beginning of 2013. GTAT partnered with Apple to make sapphire glass for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, along with the Apple Watch, but failed to meet its goals and ultimately filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.

The Mac Observer Spin: GTAT's CEO and COO both sold off a lot of stock before the company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, and now the SEC has launched an investigation into trading activity. That could be coincidence, but there's a good chance the SEC wants to know if they were trading inappropriately based on insider information.

On Wednesday, Security firm Palo Alto Networks revealed a threat in which hackers were transferring malware to iOS devices through infected OS X desktop applications downloaded from a Chinese app marketplace. The attack could notably affect devices that had…

Amazon Echo, a Siri for the home

Echo is always on, much like “Hey Siri” or “OK Google”, always listening for its name, a name that you get to choose. Like Siri, you can ask Echo questions or give it commands, as long as they fit into its knowledge domain. Watch the video below to get a sense of how broad that domain really is. And, I suspect, that domain will continue to grow over time.

I think Amazon will sell a ton of these.

News: Apple planning to switch NAND Flash chips in...

A new report from BusinessKorea suggests that Apple may be planning to change the type of NAND flash chips it uses for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, following reports of various users problems with higher-capacity models. Citing industry sources, the report states that Apple has decided to discontinue use of triple-level-cell (TLC) NAND as it believes the NAND controller IC contained in the chips to be the cause of recent problems with the 128GB…

Say Play iOS app makes music streaming as easy as...

You’ve long been able to tell Siri to play any track on your iPhone, and the Say Play app gives you the same ability with music you don’t own. Just open the app, hit the red button and speak the name of the track.

To be sure, you could do a voice search in YouTube, but the app appears to simultaneously search several music video sources, and continues to play the track while you’re using other apps. As you’d expect from an app powered by Nuance, voice-recognition is faultless, and in my brief tests it was lightning-fast.

The app costs $0.99 on iTunes.

Interesting piece from Seeking Alpha (reg-wall):

Once paying for purchases at retail with a smartphone becomes commonplace, regardless of whether you believe Apple will roll out its own AppleCard, the credit card companies will fall one by one, starting with American Express. How can it possibly be prestigious to carry a Platinum or Black card when the card never leaves your wallet?

Apple blocks WireLurker malware apps from opening,...

Apple has now blocked the launching of Mac apps infected with WireLurker malware, after earlier revoking security certificates to prevent them being installed on new devices. WireLurker was capable of infecting non-jailbroken iOS devices when connected to a Mac running one of the compromised apps. Over 400 Mac apps in a third-party Chinese app store were affected.

In a written statement, an Apple spokesperson said:

We are aware of malicious software available from a download site aimed at users in China, and we’ve blocked the identified apps to prevent them from launching. As always, we recommend that users download and install software from trusted sources.

However, a security researcher says that it would be easy for other attackers to exploit the exact same weakness … ...

The Apple Effect: The Leaders Shall Become Followers


Google Wallet reportedly has experienced a sudden surge in use: Weekly transactions are up 50 percent, and the number of new users has nearly doubled in a month. Obviously, the primary explanation for this sudden leap is Apple's entry into the mobile payments world. It introduced Apple Pay in September and rolled it out officially October 20. Google Wallet has been available for real-world use since 2011 -- and it works with all major credit cards. So, was the U.S. market just not ready for mobile payments, or did Apple make it ready?

That’s $50 off Apple’s current price (though Walmart mistakenly says $100 off last year’s price) and tied with the lowest price we’ve ever seen. A nice pickup for the same price as the iPod touch.

Hands On: Zombies, Run! (iOS)

One of biggest problems a new runner faces is the ability to quickly grow bored of the standard running routine. Even listening to music can get boring if someone does it day in and day out. But how does one keep a running routine fresh and exciting? Sure, they could try new music in new places to run, but eventually they might want something different. That's why Zombies, Run!, by Six to Start, aims to keep things exciting by putting the player at the center of the zombie apocalypse....

These days, keeping up with games can be a full-time job. So how do you separate the signal from the noise, the wheat from the chaff, the Temple Runs from the Temple Jumps? Allow us to help by regularly selecting a game You Should Play. 

House on Fire’s The Silent Age is actually a two-part game: The first episode, which is free to play, was released in early 2013, while the second episode, which costs $5, was released just a few weeks ago. You should think of the entire game as a $5 investment, though, because I guarantee you won’t be able to stop after episode one’s cliffhanger.

The good news is that the mighty Aaron Sorkin is hard at work on writing a Steve Jobs biopic.

The mixed news is that he thinks cocaine could possibly help the writing process – even if he’s joking about it.

Bloomberg’s Studio 1.0 with Bloomberg Television’s Emily Chang, which aired at 8:30pm ET/5:30pm PT featured screenwriter Aaron Sorkin who discussed his writing process and bringing Steve Jobs to life. Sorkin also addressed whether it is easier to write Sober, “maybe it would be easier to write with coke, maybe I’d write better with coke,” and discussed his three conversations with Apple founder Steve Jobs including the third time, “the third time he called me was to ask me to help him write his commencement address at Stanford.”

Microsoft previously had an “Office Mobile” app for iPhone that integrated features of all three Office apps, but today’s release of standalone Word, Excel, and PowerPoint apps for iPhone are officially replacing Office Mobile as Microsoft’s Office solution for iPhone.

Not that you should be entirely paranoid about malware on your OS X and iOS devices, but a little caution couldn’t hurt.

Per Palo Alto Networks, a new paper has been published on WireLurker, a family of malware targeting both Mac OS and iOS systems for the past six months. It’s believed that WireLurker could herald in a new generation of malware on Apple’s desktop and mobile platforms given the following characteristics:
- It is only the second known malware family that attacks iOS devices through OS X via USB.

- It is the first malware to automate generation of malicious iOS applications, through binary file replacement.

- It is the first known malware that can infect installed iOS applications similar to a traditional virus.

- It is the first in-the-wild malware to install third-party applications on non-jailbroken iOS devices through enterprise...

If imitation truly is the sincerest form of flattery, then the designers at Lenovo must adore the iPhone 6.

Samsung has caught a lot of flak for—and been taken to court over—some of its iPhone-like smartphone design choices, but nothing the Korean company has ever produced comes close to the shamelessly derivative Lenovo S90. Not only does the S90 seem to take more than a few design cues from Apple’s latest smartphone, but its entire advertising campaign seems to be a carbon copy of Apple’s own.

Take, for example, the image above (found on Weibo, via PhoneArena). If it looks a little familiar to you, that might be because it’s the exact same thing you’ll find on...

New data from ad network and analytics firm Chitika saw the iPad regaining nearly two full points of North American web traffic among tablets in September, finishing the month with 79.9 percent share. Even at its lower July reading of 78 percent, the iPad line still completely dominated its rivals, all of whom reported single-digit web presence. The next nearest rival was Amazon, with 6.7 percent share for its entire Kindle Fire line. Samsung followed in third place, with six percent....

The latest numbers from advertising company Chitika Insights show that iPad web usage in North America rose nearly 2% in September, marking a slight increase over the third quarter. Chitika found the iPad to have a 79.9% share of tablet web traffic in the United States and Canada during the month, compared to a 78.0% share reported in July.

Despite the marginal increase over the third quarter, iPad web usage in September still suffered a year-over-year decline over the 81% share it held in the year-ago quarter. Amazon, Samsung and Google tablets trailed in second, third and fourth place, with 6.7%, 6.0% and 1.7% shares of tablet web traffic in September.

The data is determined based on a sample of tens of millions of U.S. and Canadian tablet-based online ad impressions running through the Chitika Ad Network.

The change adds a single “Upload” button to the upper-right corner of the page, which shows a standard image picker when clicked. From there, users are presented with the progress indicator seen above, and the image becomes available on all of their devices. At this time, video uploads don’t appear to be supported.

Back to war

This week's roundup of apps includes a World War II-themed game almost as expensive as the war itself. Plus, apps for music, news, and more.

Battle Academy 2: Eastern Front

This iPad game costs $20. Twenty dollars! It’s a World War II-themed strategy game set on the Russian front. You can control Axis and Soviet forces in more than 30 missions across four single-player campaigns. There’s enough depth and variety of experience here that playing the whole game could take as long as World War II itself.
