Apple’s unreleased iBeacon hardware exposed in user...

Way back in July, Apple registered FCC certification for a new piece of iBeacon Bluetooth hardware. Naturally, 9to5Mac covered the release of wireless certification documents for the hardware. It was unclear by those filings the nature of the product, whether it was targeted at use in Apple Stores, some form of developer testing equipment or something else entirely. The product was never made publicly available for purchase, for unknown reasons.

However, time has elapsed such that the rest of Apple’s submitted documents are now available to the public. Vitally, this includes a user manual which immediately signals that this iBeacon hardware was meant for developers, presumably to test iBeacon integration in their own apps. It’s unclear, though, if this is meant to be...

New password-hacking tool for iCloud claims to evade...

A new tool submitted to GitHub claims to be able to perform password dictionary attacks on any iCloud account, seemingly able to evade detection from Apple’s rate-limiting security that is supposed to prevent such dictionary attacks from happening. In September, Apple reported it had closed one such hole that allowed brute-force attacks to occur.

The sourcecode for the tool has been released onto GitHub. Upon inspection, the tool is really rather crude in its complexity. It simply tries every possible word in its 500-long word-list as the password for a given iCloud account email. This means whilst it will succeed “100%”...

SpaceX Seeks to Defy Odds With Ocean-Platform Rocket...


SpaceX next week will try for the first time to land the first stage of a Falcon 9 rocket on a custom-built ocean platform in the Atlantic Ocean. The experiment originally was scheduled to take place in mid-December but was postponed to Jan. 6. The Falcon 9 first stage is some 14 stories tall and will be traveling at a speed of nearly a mile per second. The company compared the challenge of stabilizing it to balancing a rubber broomstick on your hand in the middle of a windstorm.

New Filter Family Adds Diversity to Instagram Toolset


Instagram recently added some new filters -- the first time it has done so in two years. Each of the filters included in the latest version of Instagram allow users to make subtle mood changes to a photo. "A host of me-too apps have been introduced to the market since Instagram was launched. Filters are becoming a competitive advantage for Instagram so I suspect you'll see it develop more filters as time goes on because that's the real value of their service," noted IDC Research Director Chris Chute.

Photos app mysteriously vanishes from iCloud.com


The Photos app has been mysteriously pulled from the iCloud.com site, in the last few days. The app, which shows pictures stored in iCloud Photo Library, is now no longer listed on the iCloud.com homepage when logged in … with no comment from Apple to explain the disappearance.

Going direct to the URL for the Photos app (iCloud.com/#photos) seems to try and load the app but fails with an error message: “Can’t Load Photos: There was a problem loading the application.”. Although this is only speculation, it seems like Apple’s...

Apple Faces Class Action Lawsuit For Shrinking...

An anonymous reader notes that Apple is being sued over claims that iOS 8 uses too much storage space on the company's devices. "Ever wonder why there never is enough space on your iPhone or iPad? A lawsuit filed this week against Apple Inc. alleges that upgrades to the iOS 8 operating system are to blame, and that the company has misled customers about it. In the legal complaint filed in California, Miami residents Paul Orshan and Christopher Endara accuse Apple of "storage capacity misrepresentations and omissions" relating to Apple's 8 GB and 16GB iPhones, iPads and iPods. Orshan has two iPhone 5 and two iPads while Endara had purchased an iPhone 6. They contend the upgrades to the operating system end up taking up as much as 23 percent of the storage space on their devices."

The contents of Apple’s 2015 Japanese “Lucky Bag” sales have been revealed. The bags went on sale at 8 AM local time this morning, and the entire collection of deals was quickly revealed by those who had taken advantage of the limited-time offer.

The bags will cost shoppers around ¥38,000 (or about $323). There are four different types of bags available, and customers will get one at random when they make their purchase.

Apple increases iOS and Mac Developer Program...

Apple has quietly increased the cost of its iOS & Mac Developer Programs in some EU countries with price hikes confirmed for at least the UK and Germany. In Germany, the programs are up from the previous €80/year to €99/year, while in the UK pricing has been adjusted from £60/year to £79/year.

While the price increase is already live in at least the UK and Germany, pricing for the program in the US remains at $99/year.

Apple requires app developers to enroll in its developer programs for both the iOS App Store and Mac App Store in order to distribute apps through the stores and access Apple’s developer tools alongside early iOS and OS X releases.

It’s unclear if the change could be a result of currency fluctuations or perhaps a...

Grovemade’s wooden accessories bring tech back to...

Opening the packaging, unwrapping the cellophane, untwisting the cable ties, and key-cutting tape is as much a part of the technology ritual as meditating on which device to buy in the first place.

But that first whiff of silica gel and plastic-infused air can seem a little sterile. Technology has come to mean sleek, metallic, and smooth, impersonal by definition of its mass production.

This Christmas I've found the perfect antidote: a selection of handmade wooden products from Grovemade. As described on the website, the team is "a family of creators—close knit and a little crazy—handcrafting goods at our workshop in Portland, Oregon."

Stornext MDC and Yosemite

Forums: General Xsan TalkTags: Stornext MDC Yosemite Downgrade Xsan4

We received a new MacMini with Yosemite 10.10. We need to hook to Stornext 4.3.3 MDC to work as a client to move files between our various Stornext 4.3.3 SAN volumes. It has Xsan4, which we see is not supported. The plan was to go from MacMini to Atto Thunderlink 2162 to Stornext MDC and attach with 16 GB FC.
Since Xsan4 is not listed as compatible with Stornext 4.3.3, is it possible to either downgrade to Xsan3, or to go back to Mavericks to get Xsan3? We weren't anticipating the Xsan4 issue. We just need a client on Xsan to talk to the Stornext 4.3.3 MDC and SAN volumes.

You might just be able to pay your parking tickets in New York City with Apple Pay in the new year.

In an effort to reboot an old and obtuse parking ticket payments system, the city of New York is investigating alternative forms of payment, including mobile transactions powered by services like Apple Pay and PayPal.

Per AppleInsider and MarketWatch, the city’s finance department is looking to upgrade its parking ticket platform, which currently handles some US$600 million annually from about 10 million issued tickets.

Potential replacements for the parking bureau’s current system include Apple Pay, PayPal and...

Got a parking ticket in NYC? City looking at Apple...

New York City's Department of Finance recently submitted a Request for Information (RFI) (PDF) about “mobile solutions for payment” of parking tickets, listing Apple Pay, PayPal, and Bitcoin as potential options.

The city says it's only looking to find out more about what a mobile payment option might look like—its most recent document is not a request for proposals, so there's a possibility that transferring bitcoins into the NYC municipal coffers may never come to fruition. But if you've ever parked an inch too close to a broken-looking fire hydrant in that city, you may take delight in the idea of being able to pay the fine quickly from your phone. The city is also looking for a way to allow people to schedule parking ticket hearings via their phones.

Currently, parking violators can pay online, in person or by mail. MarketWatch, which first...

Review: Skech’s Base and Skechbook join the early...

As 2014 comes to a close, there aren’t a lot of iPad Air 2-specific cases on the market, and some developers are already taking shortcuts — cutting extra holes in old iPad Air cases — just to get “iPad Air 1+2″ products out. So when new cases are supposedly tailored just for the iPad Air 2, I’m interested in seeing how well they actually fit and protect Apple’s latest tablet, even if their designs are otherwise highly familiar. That’s why Skech’s Base ($45) and Skechbook ($40) are here.

They’re both fabric folios with iPad Air 2-sized plastic hard shells inside. Offered in black, blue, or pink, Base has rounded corners and feels like waxed canvas, while the black-only Skechbook has boxy, hardcover book-like edges and is...

Just as one judge dismissed a class action case again Apple yesterday, today Siliconbeat reports that Apple will face a new class action case claiming iOS 8 takes up too much of the iPhone’s overall storage capacity. The case was filed in a Bay Area federal court this week and claims that iOS 8 can take up as much as 23.1 percent of an iOS device’s storage depending on the model:

“We feel that there are a substantial number of Apple consumers that have been shortchanged, and we’ll be pursuing the claims vigorously,” said William Anderson, a lawyer at Cuneo Gilbert...

Despite declining sales, Samsung somehow beats Apple...

One of Apple CEO Tim Cook’s favorite terms to throw around during earnings calls and keynote presentations is “Customer Sat,” but the latest from the American Customer Satisfaction Index has Apple down compared to last year while Samsung continues to rise despite declining sales. 

Apple comes in on the index measuring Cellular Telephones at a score of 79, a -2.5% change from last year and just slightly above the average 78 score for all cell phones measured in the index.

While Samsung has been steadily reporting a drop in mobile profits as it restructures...

Samsung edges out Apple in holiday customer...

Samsung just beat out Apple in terms of customer service this holiday season.

Per Engadget and Boy Genius Report, the latest stats from the American Consumer Satisfaction Index, which surveys 70,000 consumers every year, show Samsung slightly beating out Apple by two points with a satisfaction score of 81. Sure, it’s not a huge lead, but it’s a big jump for the company from last year’s score of 76. Apple, meanwhile, saw its score fall more than two points since last year. It’s always tough to read much into these numbers (was it the Galaxy S5 that helped, or just Android improvements?), but it’s still a decent win for Samsung. Don’t be surprised if Samsung ends up marketing the heck out of this...

Apple hit with class action suit over iOS 8 space...

If you were annoyed by how much space iOS 8 took up, you aren’t alone.

Per SiliconBeat, Apple has been hit with a lawsuit alleging that it doesn’t inform users just how much storage its new operating system will eat up – and then prods them to buy more space through its iCloud service.

The case, filed in the Bay Area’s federal court on Tuesday, claims iOS 8 can take up as much as 23.1 percent of the advertised storage capacity on Apple gadgets, but few users realize that when they make their purchases. Seeking damages and changes to Apple policies under California state law, plaintiffs hope to represent sweeping classes of users who bought Apple gadgets with iOS 8 already installed and users who upgraded to the latest version of the software.

Rumor: Samsung fanless notebook hints at upcoming...

The 12-inch Retina Display MacBook Air may be fanless thanks to Samsung.

Per 9to5Mac and The Verge, Samsung has pre-announced the Ativ Book 9 ahead of the Consumer Electronics Show. Interestingly, this notebook features many of the technical specifications that have been rumored for the future 12-inch Retina MacBook Air. The announcement of the Ativ Book 9 validates that a fanless high-resolution ultrabook is indeed possible in the short term.

The Book 9 laptop features a 12.2 inch screen with a 2600×1600 resolution, implying a 250 PPI. At normal viewing distances, Apple could easily describe the display as...

According to reports there, Apple has been able to resolve the issue only by replacing the phone.

Apple accounts for 51% of devices as Christmas gifts

These are the days of giving devices as gifts.

Specifically, Apple devices.

Per Flurry, 2014 turned into a banner year for Apple, its devices accounting for 51 percent of the new device activations worldwide Flurry recognized in the week leading up to and including Christmas Day (December 19th – 25th). Samsung held the #2 position with 18% of new device activations, and Microsoft (Nokia) rounded out the top three with 5.8% share for mostly Lumia devices. After the top three manufacturers, the device market becomes increasingly fragmented with only Sony and LG commanding more than one percent share of new activations on Christmas Day. Up-and-comers Xiaomi, Huawei, and HTC all had less than one percent share on Christmas Day. One reason is surely their...

Specifically, the GoodReader update removes the ability to add folders, remove folders or move files around the iCloud Drive storage location. The update notes reference a ‘usage policy’, although it is unclear what document the company is referring to.

Folder operations are included in the public iCloud Drive API’s, which makes the...
