FCC and Congress Work to Roll Back Net Neutrality

Remember in 2015 when the FCC reclassified ISPs as common carriers and (sort of) made “net neutrality” the law of the land? Now the Trump administration and the Republican-controlled Congress are undoing it in the name of “freedom.”

Google Neutralizes Docs Phishing Scam


A phishing scam that surfaced earlier this week used Google Docs in an attack against at least 1 million Gmail users. However, that amounted to fewer than 0.1 percent of Gmail users were affected, according to the company. Google last year put the number of active monthly Gmail users at more than 1 billion. Google shut down the phishing scam within an hour, it said, through both automatic and manual actions. It removed the fake pages and applications, and it pushed updates through Safe Browsing, Gmail and other anti-abuse systems.

8,400 new Android malware apps found every day

The Android operating system clearly dominates the mobile market, with a share of around 72 percent. In Germany alone, around 67 percent of smartphone owners use a device with an Android operating system (source: Statcounter). G DATA security experts discovered over 750,000 new Android malware apps in the first quarter of 2017. That represents almost 8,400 new malware instances every day.

This is an absolutely staggering number. I don’t know how anyone using an Android device feels the least bit safe.

A comprehensive security solution is becoming more and more important for smartphones and tablets.

Yes, I agree. It’s called an iPhone and iOS.

Ecobee's popular smart thermostat is on sale...

With the ship date of the Ecobee4 smart thermostat ten days away, the deals have been increasing on the current Ecobee3 model. Right now, Amazon is selling the second-generation Ecobee3 for $187. That’s $63 off the sticker price, as well as being about $13 cheaper than at other retailers.

The Ecobee3 can monitor multiple rooms in a home—though it comes with one wireless sensor, it can support up to 32. Its premise is that it dynamically adjusts the temperature based on which rooms are occupied and what their conditions are. (As long as you have a sensor to relay to the main unit such information, of course.) The company claims an average of 23% savings on your heating and cooling costs per year.

Apple’s China Problem: WeChat

Ben Thompson had a great column this week, in the wake of Apple’s quarterly results and Microsoft’s announcement of the Surface Laptop:

Did you hear about the new Microsoft Surface Laptop? The usual
suspects
are claiming it’s a MacBook competitor, which is
true insomuch as it is a laptop. In truth, though, the Surface
Laptop isn’t a MacBook competitor at all for the rather obvious
reason that it runs Windows, while the MacBook runs MacOS. This
has always been the foundation of Apple’s business model:
hardware differentiated by software such that said hardware
can be sold with a margin much greater than nominal competitors
running a commodity operating system.

An anonymous reader shares a report: There's a reason that everyone you look at it is looking at a smartphone. According to the folks whose job it is to track such things, people can't get enough of apps, and global usage of them continues to increase. In its latest usage report, App Annie takes a look at the average user's app usage for the first quarter of 2017 and reaches the conclusion that mobile apps have become vital to our day-to-day lives. Last year's report found that time spent in apps reached 1 trillion hours. The average smartphone user, in the United States and other countries analyzed, used over 30 apps per month. That's about a third of the number that are actually installed on phones in the U.S. People use about 10 apps every day, the data shows, with iPhone users using slightly more than Android users. Utilities and tools are the most commonly used apps on a monthly basis, thanks to pre-installed apps such as Safari on iOS and Google on Android.

Amazon video app may come to Apple TV

Amazon and Apple may have reached a truce.

The tech giants, who are increasingly competing for customers’ time, eyeballs and money, are close to an agreement to bring an Amazon video app to Apple’s Apple TV set-top box, according to people familiar with the two companies.

This agreement will benefit both companies. Amazon subscribers want to be able to use their Apple TVs to watch videos without using AirPlay and Apple wants to offer a full complement of programming options for its customers.

Amazon Prime Video has some of the best original TV shows and Oscar-worthy new movies (Best Picture winner Moonlight is coming soon), which is why it infuriates me that I can’t stream that content directly on my Apple TV. But that’s about to change.

Recode is reporting that Apple and Amazon are working out their long-standing differences to bring a Prime Video app to the Apple TV App Store sometime this summer. Insert literally all the raised hands emojis here.

My current workaround is to open the Prime Video app on my iPhone and then use AirPlay to beam whatever I’m watching to my Apple TV. It’s easy enough to do, but when faced with the choice of going through those extra steps or just watching whatever’s new on Netflix, I almost always choose the latter. (This is why I’m still not caught up on the third season of Transparent. I know, I...

Citing "people familiar with the two companies," the report indicates that Amazon and Apple are "close to an agreement" that would bring Amazon's app to Apple's box sometime over the summer.

Currently, watching Prime Video on an Apple TV requires you to sling it from the Prime Video app on an iPhone or iPad via AirPlay, a clunky-at-best solution that doesn't always work well and (from my own personal experience) reduces video quality relative to a direct stream.

In America, landlines aren’t the norm anymore.

The story behind the story: It might seem odd to hear that the CDC is tracking phone usage, but there’s actually a good reason for it. Every year, the CDC conducts a face-to-face survey with 40,000 households called the National Health Interview Survey. Since 2003, the NHIS has monitored what kind of phone connectivity respondents had: landline or mobile. This data gives the CDC useful information that correlates to the health status of people without landlines.

Per FBI director James Comey’s testimony to a Senate oversight committee, the Bureau has been unable to access almost half of the mobile devices it tried to examine in the first half of the fiscal year.

Comey said the FBI had been unable to access the contents of more than 3,000 mobile devices in the first half of the fiscal year, using what he described as “appropriate and available technical tools, even though there was the legal authority to do so.” He said that represented “nearly half” of all the mobile devices it had attempted to access in that time frame.

Comey’s statements seem to be leading towards support of forcing phone manufacturers to provide backdoor access to the authorities.

In his testimony, Comey offered the following comments:

I could imagine a world that ends up with legislation saying that if you’re going to make devices in the U.S. you figure out how to comply with court orders. Or maybe we don’t go there. But we are having...

Why Apple’s laptops could use a little less...

As a company, Apple’s philosophy is often about pushing the envelope. And that’s great. It’s how we got the original Mac’s GUI, the iPhone, and other products and features too numerous to name. Apple likes to play up this revolutionary part of its history, and how it’s constantly trying to create world-beating products and not just move the needle slowly forward. It’s not imagine the late Steve Jobs summoning forth the adage often attributed to Henry Ford: “If I had asked people what they wanted, they would have said faster horses.”

Of course, the philosophy of innovation can go awry. Apple was so concerned about transforming the 2013 edition of the Mac Pro into an elegant, radical piece of machinery that it lost sight of what made that product appeal to its users. In a rare moment, the comapny even admitted it had taken the wrong approach.

Damage

Shawn posted this last night, but this hits very close to home for me, wanted to add my 2 cents.

Matt Gemmell:

No company has done as much damage to the perceived value of software, and the sustainability of being an independent developer, as Apple.

Not that other companies wouldn’t have done the same thing — they would have. It’s just that Apple was the successful one.

It’s resolutely the fault of us as consumers, and it’s actively encouraged by the App Store.

This is a scorcher. At its heart, this is about the iOS App Store’s race to the bottom, price-wise, and the difficulty of making a living as a developer in a “pennies for your work” market.

Matt does an excellent job laying out all the details. A core argument:

Has Apple created a huge market, in terms of potential customers? Absolutely. It’s just done so at the expense of its platform-invested developer community. Judging by the company’s value and income, it was a very wise...

Qualcomm could consider “nuclear option” in ongoing...

Things are getting ugly between Apple and Qualcomm.

Qualcomm, which has been in a heated dispute with Apple over patent royalty payment, may exercise the nuclear option by asking the United States International Trade Commission (USITC) to block iPhone imports.

At the root of the dispute between Apple and Qualcomm are cellular communication technology patents that Apple and others license from Qualcomm for a hefty fee.

The tensions, which have been brewing for months, finally hit a new peak in January when the Federal Trade Commission accused Qualcomm of anti-trust practices. Essentially the deals it was making with companies like Apple were considered unfair. Part of the issue was that Qualcomm was charging Apple a licensing fee for every single iPhone, whether or not every device used Qualcomm’s cellular technologies. As of the iPhone 7, Apple started mixing in Intel baseband processors to the iPhone mix.

A few days later, Apple filed suit against...

Following Imagination Technologies and Qualcomm facing the loss of revenue from Apple as the company looks to bring more chip design in-house, another Apple supplier is also facing a potentially significant loss of business.

Google Docs phishing attack underscores OAuth...

Google has stopped Wednesday’s clever email phishing scheme, but the attack may very well make a comeback.

One security researcher has already managed to replicate it, even as Google is trying to protect users from such attacks.

“It looks exactly like the original spoof,” said Matt Austin, director of security research at Contrast Security.

The phishing scheme—which may have circulated to 1 million Gmail users—is particularly effective because it fooled users with a dummy app that looked like Google Docs.

Recipients who received the email were invited to click a blue box that said “Open in Docs.” Those who did were brought to an actual Google account page that asks them to handover Gmail access to the dummy app.

How to share calendars in macOS Sierra

With macOS Sierra you can share calendars with others who have iCloud accounts. You can also choose whether others can edit the calendar or only view it.

Apple becomes world’s number one wearables vendor

According to the latest research from Strategy Analytics, global wearables shipments reached 22 million units in the first quarter of 2017 (Q1 2016). Apple captured 16% marketshare and became the world’s largest wearables vendor, overtaking Fitbit, thanks to the Apple Watch.

“Apple shipped 3.5 million wearables worldwide in Q1 2017, rising 59% annually from 2.2 million units in Q1 2016,” says Neil Mawston, executive director at Strategy Analytics. “Apple captured 16 percent global marketshare and overtook Fitbit to become the world’s largest wearables vendor. The new Apple Watch Series 2 is selling relatively well in the U.S., UK and elsewhere, due to enhanced styling, intensive marketing and a good retail presence.”

Fitbit shipped 2.9 million wearables worldwide in Q1 2017, falling 36% annually from 4.5 million in Q1 2016. The company has lost its wearables leadership to Apple, due to slowing demand for...

A Taste of Linux From a Sample Disk Platter

My hope is that by showcasing some of these Linux standouts, you will appreciate what makes them special, and get inspired to take a deeper dive yourself.

Apple’s share of the $600-plus smartphone market in...

Apple’s share of the $600-plus Chinese smartphone market is 80%, according to new data from Counterpoint Research

“The premium segment $600+ or 4000rmb remained flat annually but shrunk 33% sequentially. Apple’s share of this super-premium segment remains at 80%, with five out of the top ten model SKUs belonging to Apple,” says Research Analyst Mengmeng Zhang. “The 4000 rmb and above segment mostly peaks during the Apple iPhone launch quarter and shrinks for the rest of the year. This volatility is because of Apple and affects Apple, as competition in the premium space is still weak. Though we are seeing Huawei with its Mate 9 series and players such as Vivo trying to make some movement in this segment to attract premium Android users.

Smartphones shipments in China grew a modest 4% annually during Q1 the first quarter of 2017 and declined 20% sequentially. Oppo and vivo were the fastest growing brands...

Imagination Technologies starts dispute process with...

Imagination said in April that Apple had notified the British firm it was developing its own graphics chips and would no longer use Imagination’s processing designs in 15 months to two years time.

I get why Imagination wants to hang on to Apple, but it makes a lot of sense for Apple to make its own chips. It has the facilities and technical people to make it happen. Doing so means that Apple doesn’t have to pay licensing fees to a third-party, which means it keeps more the money from each sale.
