Make the most out of HealthKit with these 5 apps

Now that HealthKit and its supported apps have hit the App Store, you’re probably itching to try all of the apps and analyze as much health data as possible. But before you do that, think about the information that you really want to know every day. 

With HealthKit, you can truly customize the health and data experience you want to have. That’s why it’s important to select your apps, devices, and Health app settings carefully, perhaps selecting apps that do one task well—one for tracking sleep, another for caloric intake, another for fitness, and a final app for general health—and then share that information freely with other HealthKit apps. And that’s exactly what the apps listed here do. These five apps each bring something different to the table, delivering a well-balanced snapshot of your daily health routine.

iOS 8 adoption lagging significantly behind iOS 7,...

Within the first twenty-four hours, iOS 8 update appeared to be slower than its predecessors.  A few weeks in, this continues to be the case says analytics firm Fisku.

After twelve days, both iOS 6 and iOS 7 had comfortably crossed the 50% mark for iOS usage. By contrast, iOS 8 is yet to hit the 40% mark according to Fisku’s measurements. An independent study from Mixpanel says iOS 8 is closer to 50%, but it is still far behind iOS 7’s rate of uptake.

At least, iOS 8 is ahead of iOS 5 in terms of usage, which should be expected given that iOS 4 users wanting to upgrade to iOS 5 had to plug in to iTunes to update. Since that change, both iOS 6 and iOS 7’s upgrade rates were almost double that of iOS 5. For reasons not...

Facebook Messenger may soon let you pay your friends...


A modified version of the Facebook Messenger has revealed that person-to-person payment interfaces and other elements are already integrated into the app. The discovery was made by iOS developer Andre Aude.

Just like sending a message or sending a photo, Facebook’s payments implementation is integrated into the chat window. The idea being, that if you talk to a friend about getting coffee, you can pay your half of the bill in the same place. A history of payments appears in the settings pages.

Facebook has not confirmed that the feature is coming any time soon. Zuckerberg has floated the idea of Facebook tying mobile payments before, but warned it was a long way off.

When cooking became competition

The Atlantic:

Turn on the Food Network any night of the week, and this is what you’ll probably see: “a larger-than-life host, a specifically defined challenge, bombastic music, a set time limit, a panel of judges, and a cast of contestants whose back-story and biographical detail serves to heighten the stakes and fan the [program's] already heated dramatic flame.”

That’s according to a 2013 study of Food Network’s evolution from University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee associate professor Tasha Oren. The Food Network may have started as a channel focusing on the dishes themselves—think Emeril Lagasse and “Bam!” But in order to grow, the network has abandoned its food focus in favor of formulaic competition.

I don’t watch any of these shows but I see the commercials for them all the time. I don’t watch because I don’t get why cooking has to be a contest but the article might have a point. Maybe these shows are for those who don’t like sports but still like competition...

Apple-owned designer headphone brand Beats by Dre are taking another hit in the professional sports arena.

The best Lightning cable

The Wirecutter:

After measuring the charging speed of 44 cables, then sending the top 11 to our electrical engineer for teardown analysis, the $14 Monoprice 3ft MFi Certified Lightning to USB Charge/Sync Cable is the one we’d buy. It may be a third-party cable, but the Monoprice stood out among competitors by being the only third-party cable that had as good, if not better, internal build-quality compared to Apple’s own cable. Plus, it’s cheaper than Apple’s by $5.

Always good to have an extra cable or two lying around and the price is right for this one.

In iOS 8, the Camera app has a lot of the same functionality as in iOS 7. In iOS 8, you are able to manually control the exposure levels in the photo. This means you can easily adjust how light or dark the photo is.

To do so open up the Camera app. Then you are going to tap on the focus point. The focus point is the subject point of the picture. When tapping to focus, a yellow square appears around the subject. To adjust the exposure level, tap on the yellow sun and slide it up and down. Sliding the sun up will make the picture lighter, and sliding the sun down will make the picture darker.

NFL bans beats headphones on camera

Re/code:

Bose secured a league sponsorship deal that effectively allows it to elbow Beats — and any other rival headphone manufacturer — off the playing field.

Under terms of its agreement with the league, the NFL confirmed, Bose received a broad set of rights that entitle it to prevent players (or coaches) from wearing any other manufacturer’s headphones during televised interviews.

This ban extends to TV interviews conducted during pre-season training camps or practice sessions and on game day — starting before the opening kickoff through the final whistle to post-game interviews conducted in the locker room or on the podium. The restriction remains in place until 90 minutes after the play has ended.

Does Bose really think this will make any difference in their sales or market share? Do they think that potential buyers, seeing the headsets on a bunch of “old guys” on the sidelines will make their target audience think, “Oh! I like that look! Gotta...

Reddit-powered botnet infected thousands of Macs...

A search run by the iWorm malware against Reddit yielded lists of compromised servers making up the botnet's command and control network.

Dr.WEB

The Russian antivirus vendor Dr. Web has reported the spread of a new botnet that exclusively targets Apple computers running Mac OS X. According to a survey of traffic conducted by researchers at Dr. Web, over 17,000 Macs worldwide are part of the Mac.BackDoor.iWorm botnet—and almost a quarter of them are in the US. One of the most curious aspects of the botnet is that it uses a search of Reddit posts to a Minecraft server list subreddit to retrieve IP addresses for its command and control (CnC) network. That subreddit now appears to have been expunged of CnC data, and the account that posted the data appears to be shut down.

At the heart of the suit is an anti-piracy measure added to iTunes and the iPod after Real Networks debuted its RealPlayer competitor. According to the suit, Apple deliberately stopped iTunes and iPods from playing music purchased from the competing store through several iTunes updates.

Real Networks says that this cause $351,631,153 in damages, breaking the claim down even further as “$148,947,126 for resellers, $194,655,141 for direct purchasers, and $8,028,886 for additional iPod sales from the additional transactions.” The full ruling is below.

Apple To Face $350 Million Trial Over iPod DRM

An anonymous reader writes: A U.S. district judge ruled last week that a decade-old antitrust lawsuit regarding Apple's FairPlay DRM can move forward to a jury trial (PDF). The plaintiffs claim that in 2004, when "Real Networks launched a new version of RealPlayer that competed with iTunes," Apple issued an update to iTunes that prevented users from using their iPods to play songs obtained from RealPlayer. Real Networks updated its compatibility software in 2006, and Apple introduced a new version of iTunes that also rendered Real Networks's new update ineffective. The plaintiffs reason that they were thus "locked in" to Apple's platform, and as a result "Apple was able to overcharge its customers to the tune of tens of millions of dollars". If the plaintiffs succeed, media content purchased online may go the way of CDs and be playable on competing devices.

It’s one of the first made-for-iPhone USB flash drives that also includes an integrated Lightning connector to easily transfer content to and from the device to others. Hyper’s companion app is what makes the experience more than just storage, however…

The iStick is much like your standard USB thumb drive, but a small switch allows you to expose either the standard USB connector (the one that will connect to your...

Being Facebook Means Never Having to Say You're...


Facebook on Thursday announced it had developed a framework for conducting research on its 1.3 billion or so users. The announcement clearly is a response to the onslaught of criticism the company received this summer, when it blithely reported the findings of a study about how News Feed content affected a user's mood. In carrying out that research, Facebook withheld certain posts and promoted others to see how users would react. When its methodology became public, reactions were immediate and harsh.

How the Apple Watch Already Has Success Designed in

When a new product category arrives from Apple, like the Apple Watch, it can be hard to size up the future prospects. Some observers only have a dim idea about how customers will embrace and exploit the product, and they don't yet see how Apple works to design success into the very DNA of any new product. In time, however, it all becomes clear, and the naysayers seldom turn out to be right.

Here’s the full message, via several Apple employees:

Team,

Sunday will mark the third anniversary of Steve’s passing. I’m sure that many of you will be thinking of him on that day, as I know I will.

I hope you’ll take a moment to appreciate the many ways Steve made our world better. Children learn in new ways thanks to the products he dreamed up. The most creative people on earth use them to compose symphonies and pop songs, and write everything from novels to...

A security hole in OS X is allowing botnet malware to control thousands of Macs, says a Russian security firm, Dr. Web. The software has been given the label "Mac.BackDoor.iWorm;" although how it spreads is unknown, it operates in an unusual fashion, relying on comments left by the perpetrators in a Minecraft Reddit forum. These comments contain server addresses, and once iWorm connects to the IPs, commands can be sent out to the botnet....

Apple will face $350M trial over iPod DRM

tonystl

Apple will soon have to face a trial over accusations it used digital rights management, or DRM, to unlawfully maintain a lead in the iPod market, a federal judge has ruled. The plaintiffs' lawyers, representing a class of consumers who bought iPods between 2006 and 2009, are asking for $350 million.

Last week, US District Judge Yvonne Gonzales Rogers gave the green light (PDF) to sending a long-running antitrust lawsuit against Apple to trial. Plaintiffs in the case say that Apple used its FairPlay DRM system to "lock in" its customers and make it costly to switch to technology built by competitors, like Real Networks. As a result of this lock-in, Apple was able to overcharge its customers to the tune of tens of millions of dollars.

The sources add, however, that the event will also feature refreshed, possibly Retina-equipped iMacs, as well as OS X Yosemite. Apple has yet to confirm a release date for Yosemite, and the event could give the company an excuse to demonstrate previously unseen (or little-seen) features. New iMacs would presumably ship with the OS pre-installed....

Apple is reportedly set to announce new iPads and more at an event on October 16.

Andrew Cunningham

When it rains, it pours—Apple was silent for most of 2014 before dropping iOS 8, new iPhones, and the Apple Watch announcement on us last month. Now, Re/code says the company plans to hold an iPad-centric event at its town hall campus in Cupertino on October 16. Re/code (formerly AllThingsD) has a stellar track record for predicting Apple event dates, so we're inclined to believe them even though the event is falling on a Thursday instead of a Tuesday (as Apple events usually do).

New iPads will reportedly be the focus of the event, and it's not hard to guess what they'll look...

Despite the implausible rumor that the next-gen iPad Air may not debut until early 2015, Re/code reports on Friday that Apple will hold another special press event on October 16.

That’s a Thursday, which is not the most common day to have an Apple event, but no matter. Apple declined to officially confirm the information from Re/code’s sources, but the company typically starts inviting the press to these events about a week out, so we should know for sure as soon as next week.
