Mozilla at work on Firefox browser for iOS

An iOS version of Firefox is in progress, according to comments by two Mozilla managers. On Tuesday, a Firefox project manager, Lukas Blakk, wrote on Twitter that "We need to be where our users are so we're going to get Firefox on iOS;" it's believed that he was quoting Firefox VP Jonathan Nightingale at an internal Mozilla event in Portland. The company's manager of data science, Matthew Ruttley, later tweeted a photo from the event showing a slide with an iPhone 6, captioned by Ruttley with "Firefox for iOS!! Let's do this!!!"...

Cyberspies will flourish and hackers will target Apple devices more often in 2015.
Until now, Russia, China and the United States have dominated the cyberespionage scene, but their success will start to attract new players to the practice. "We can expect some of the developing economies -- countries forecasted for high economic growth -- to engage in these activities to protect their growth status," said Carl Leonard, a senior manager at Websense Security Labs.

Sprint launches new promotion, offers to halve the...

Sometimes competition is a good thing.

Per Re/code, Sprint unveiled an aggressive new price promotion Tuesday that it claims will halve the bills of customers who defect from AT&T and Verizon in the latest salvo of an increasingly bitter price war.

Under the terms of the deal, which kicks off Friday, a customer can bring a current AT&T or Verizon bill to a Sprint store and store representatives will set up a new plan that is half of the service portion of that bill (the cost of calls, texting and data). In addition to that service cost, though, customers have to buy an unsubsidized device, either up front, through installments or using one of Sprint’s new leasing plans.

Sprint will also pay up to US$350 in early termination fees or...

News: Mozilla planning to release Firefox for iOS

A version of Mozilla’s Firefox for iOS looks to be in the works, according to a new tweet from Mozilla Release Manager Lukas Blakk. Mozilla had previously stated that Firefox would not be coming to iOS unless Apple permitted its web engine to be used, rather than the WebKit engine currently required by Apple. But with a new CEO at the helm, Mozilla’s position in this regard may be softening. We need to be where our users are so we're…

With rapidly declining market share in the web browser race since Google Chrome was released in late 2008, Mozilla appears set on capturing the hundreds of millions of iOS users with a Mobile Safari alternative. “We need to be where our users are,” Firefox release manager Lukas Blakk tweeted this afternoon. “So we’re going to get Firefox on iOS.”

Mac: DigiDNA iMazing

It was only five months ago that we were impressed by DigiDNA’s DiskAid, which went past Apple’s iTunes with the ability to back up individual iOS apps, including settings and files — to keep or transfer to other devices — as well as completely clone one iOS device to another. Now DiskAid has become iMazing ($30), as what would have been DiskAid 7.1 is now iMazing 1.1. Redesigned with an iTunes 12-style UI, iMazing boasts complete iOS 8 compatibility, super-simple backups, and the ability to navigate your iPhone, iPad, or iPod’s hidden file system without the use of jailbreaks or other hacks. That means it’s capable of some really neat tricks that users in need of iOS device file management or recovery tools will really appreciate.

Apple loses appeal, cannot trademark ‘App Store’ in...

An Australian court has rejected Apple’s appeal against the country’s refusal to allow it to trademark the term ‘App Store,’ reports the Sydney Morning Herald.

The Registrar of Trade Marks refused registration of Apple’s “app store” trademark in March last year because it was too descriptive. Apple then appealed this decision in the Federal Court.

On Wednesday, Justice Yates ruled that Apple’s appeal be dismissed and that it pay the court costs of the Registrar of Trade Marks.

The ruling means that Apple is free to continue to use the name, but it cannot prevent other companies from doing the same. The court ruled that consumers understood that the term App Store referred to any online source of apps for any platform, and therefore there was no danger of consumers being misled into...

Keep your brain sharp with these five iOS apps

Do you have trouble concentrating? Do you forget where you put your keys; have difficulty recalling words; find it hard to remember names? If so, join the club. We all have problems with memory and cognitive acuity. But as we age, these problems can increase, and some app developers have stepped in to help us train our brains. These companies—which use words like “neuroplasticity” to discuss the science behind these apps—claim that you can “improve your brain health,” “improve focus, speaking skills, processing speed, memory, math skills,” and “train memory, attention, and more.” 

A word of caution: publications like Nature and Scientific American are skeptical of these claims, and a BBC study of 13,...

I demoed Alpine’s CarPlay-equipped aftermarket stereo, the iLX–007, in sunny Santa Monica, literally next door to the Hotel California. Yup, the place from the Eagles song, where “you can check out anytime you like, but you can never leave.” And that’s an apt location to try out this stereo, which, unlike the Pioneer AVIC–8000NEX, is CarPlay only, and thus iPhone-only. You could check out any other phones you like, but you could never leave your iPhone—unless you want to reduce your $800 CarPlay unit to a lowly AM/FM radio.

Apple loses appeal on 'App Store'...

On Wednesday in Sydney, Australia, a court ruled against Apple in an appeal by the iPhone maker to overturn a previous ruling that denied the company a trademark on the term "app store," despite the fact that Apple had clearly invented the term back in 2008. The fundamental problem Apple has had in trying to secure a trademark on the term is two-fold: the word "app" as short for "application" had been coined far earlier by others, and the burgeoning popularity of the phrase almost from the get-go has turned it into a generic description....

The ten-year-old lawsuit over whether Apple violated antitrust law by locking the iPod to its own iTunes software has finally gone to trial. In its first day before a jury, the case has yielded several new emails between Apple executives as well as a videotaped deposition of Steve Jobs, which was recorded in 2011 shortly before he died.

In the video, according to Reuters, Jobs was asked if he had heard of Real Networks, the company behind the RealPlayer software Apple had blocked from working with the iPod. Jobs took a quick jab at the music distribution rival and asked, “Do they still exist?”

Swift Performance

With all the excitement around Apple's new Swift programming language we were curious whether Swift is suitable for compute-intensive code, or whether it's still necessary to "drop down" into a lower-level language like C or C++.

To find out we ported three Geekbench 3 workloads from C++ to Swift: Mandelbrot, FFT, and GEMM. These three workloads offer different performance characteristics:

  • Mandelbrot is compute bound.
  • GEMM is memory bound and sequentially accesses large arrays in small blocks.
  • FFT is memory bound and irregularly accesses large arrays.

The source code for the Swift implementations is available on GitHub.

We built both the C++ and Swift workloads with Xcode 6.1. For the Swift workloads we used the -Ofast -Ounchecked optimization flags, enabled SSE4...

The technology, which has a microchip in the card and requires consumers to enter a PIN at checkout, has been required in Europe and some countries elsewhere for about a decade. Now, Americans retailers and banks are preparing for the wide release of the technology, in a wholesale security upgrade that will cost billions of dollars. The change will start next year and is expected to take several years to complete.

It can’t happen fast enough. Most of the rest of the world is already protected by this tech.

Playing with fire to shoot a new burning log video

The Globe and Mail:

The first Shaw Fire log – Canada’s answer to what had been a sensation in New York since the 1960s – dates back to 1986; a way to broadcast content on a round-the-clock channel in Edmonton so employees could take Christmas off. Every year, Shaw’s vice-president of community programming invited his employees to his house for a party, and they taped a new fire log, which ran on a continuous loop over the holiday. It caught on elsewhere.

I’d be embarrassed to tell you how often this video plays on my TV during the holidays. Thanks to Lesley for the story link.

On Monday morning, the FBI seized 20 boxes of documents pertaining to a $1.3 billion iPad program from the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD), according to the Los Angeles Times. The program, which was intended to give iPads to every student, teacher, and campus administrator of the nation’s second-largest school district, has met with many catastrophic difficulties, and this latest federal investigation led the new superintendent of the school system to shelve the project indefinitely on Tuesday.

The program first hit a bump in the road back in 2013 when a number of students “hacked” the iPads—which is to say they deleted profile information that designated the user as a...

An anonymous reader writes: The Los Angeles Unified School District had a bold (and expensive) plan to outfit its students with top-of-the-line technology: its 650,000 students will be given Apple iPads to use for school work. The cost? $1 billion. Unfortunately for them, the project has been plagued with problems. Now, the FBI has seized 20 boxes of documents regarding the district's procurement practices and confirmed an investigation. "Hundreds of students initially given the iPads last school year found ways to bypass security installations, downloading games and freely surfing the Web. Teachers complained they were not properly trained to instruct students with the new technology. And questions were raised after emails were disclosed showing that then-Superintendent John Deasy had been in communication with vendors Apple and Pearson before the contracts were put to bid."

OAKLAND, Calif. — The Apple iTunes DRM trial underway in federal court here will come down to whether jurors see the code Apple added to iTunes as good or bad. The plaintiffs, representing a class of about 8 million consumers as well as large retailers, are seeking $351 million in damages.

Plaintiffs' lawyer Bonnie Sweeney kicked off her opening statements describing Apple showing off its new Nano in 2006.

"It had twice the storage capacity and came in five different colors," she said. "But what Apple didn't tell its customers is that the code that came with the new Nano also contained the 'Keybag Verification Code.' That code did not make the Nano faster or improve its sound quality… it didn't make it sleeker or cooler. Instead, what that did is prevent customers who had legally purchased songs from a competitor from playing their songs on their iPod."

GT Advanced creditors ask for deposition by Apple...

A committee of bondholders and unsecured creditors for GT Advanced have asked for Apple's senior VP of Operations, Jeff Williams, to be made available for a "short, half-day deposition," according to the Wall Street Journal. The request was made through a Monday filing with the US Bankruptcy Court in New Hampshire. The committee states that "it is clear that Williams played an important, substantial and hands-on role in managing the relationship between GTAT and Apple in connection with the matters that are directly relevant to the Apple settlement motion."...

Volkswagen’s 300 MPG car

If the XL1 was equipped with an 18 gallon fuel tank, and you did all highway driving, you could fill it up with an oil change and when the next change was due you could change the oil and keep driving without filling up for and additional 2,400 miles. But it comes with a much smaller fuel tank, because if it could go that long on a single tank chances are the fuel would foul before it got used. The tank is only 2.6 gallons to prevent fuel age related problems from happening. So fill ups are cheap.

In the first day of testimony in the anti-trust Apple versus Real Networks trial, the promised pre-recorded testimony from Steve Jobs was trotted out by both the plaintiff's and defendant's attorneys. When queried about the threat from Real, and what Apple's response should be in 2004 Jobs said that the statement should say that "we are stunned that Real is adopting the tactics and ethics of a hacker and breaking into the iPod." At stake in the trial is $350 million, as well as other anti-trust actions that may be applied against the Cupertino manufacturer....

A Chinese smartphone maker, Digione, is claiming that the iPhone 6 may violate a phone design patent. The patent was submitted to China's State Intellectual Property Office in January, and approved in July. On Monday the company took to Sina Weibo to post proof that it sent a letter to Apple in September, notifying it about the issue and suggesting that "a communication with goodwill would contribute to solving potential legal disputes." So far Apple appears to be remaining silent....

Did North Korea Get the Last Laugh Against Sony?


Upwards of 1.2 million people reportedly have used pirate sites to download Brad Pitt's unreleased World War II drama Fury. That was one of five films hackers leaked onto the Web following an attack on Sony Pictures' network last week. Sony has called in the FBI and other law enforcement agencies. Coincidentally -- or perhaps not -- the FBI on Monday warned U.S. businesses that hackers recently penetrated several companies' networks with a particularly damaging form of malware. It's rumored that the hack was launched by North Korea.

Om Malik:

“Pico” is a prefix in the metric system denoting one-trillionth. It is also a small corner of the ever-growing web where I keep a record of my conversations with interesting people. Some are famous, some are young. Some are unknown, and some are wise and old. These conversations are not about technology. Instead, they are about transformation through technology as observed by those who are living through it.

Typically, these are the types of stories I enjoy reading the most.

Apple is hoping to overturn a verdict that found it guilty of conspiring with publishers to drive up prices; if it fails to win the appeal, the company will owe $450 million in damages and legal fees. Cue insists that the company is continuing to fight the verdict on principle. "We feel we have to fight for the truth," he says.

Think Retro: Apple's Adjustable Keyboard harks...

You’ll recognize the picture above if you’re a Mac user of a certain vintage (does secret Vintage Mac User handshake), but anyone who came to Apple this century is probably looking at it with more questions than answers. Is it broken? What is with that space bar? And, possibly, oh my gosh, were Macs really ever that beige?

It’s a keyboard of course; the Apple Adjustable Keyboard. And it doesn’t have to look quite so alarming. It’s hinged at the top so you can if you like have it completely straight:

…or pull it apart so it’s angled. Why? Ergonomics. Formal touch typists—by which I mean typists for whom typing is the major focus of their job, not typists who wear pinstripes and address people by their surnames—were taught that the correct way to type was to always have their fingers resting lightly on the “home keys,” keeping the hands still and stretching and curling the fingers to reach the other keys. That’s why to this day keyboards...

How Apple’s new patent could keep your phone’s...

We’ve all been there: Your iPhone slips from your grasp or jumps from your pocket, and instead of landing on its case-ensconced back, it hits the ground face first. The once pristine screen is now covered in hairline cracks.

You can pay Apple out of pocket to replace the glass or turn to a third-party repair shop for a cheaper fix. Corning’s forthcoming Gorilla Glass 4 is designed to prevent smartphone screens from shattering on impact, though it won’t offer perfect protection from damage. But Apple has its own screen protection strategy in mind, if a new patent granted Tuesday is any indication.

Real's attorneys seek $350 million in damages in the long-postponed suit that dates back nearly a decade. The trial, expected to last three weeks, is being held in the Oakland, CA federal courts....
