Star Wars: The Force Awakens Trailer on iTunes

Star Wars: The Force Awakens isn't due in theaters for about a year, but that shouldn't stop you from getting your Sci-Fi nerd on in a big way because you can see the movie's first trailer today. The minute and a half long trailer doesn't show any of the main characters - meaning no Luke, Leia, or Han - but it has plenty of stormtroopers, droids, X-winds, and the Millenium Falcon. Also, a triple-blade Sith lightsaber. That's right: a triple-blade Sith lightsaber. What's missing is Jar Jar Binks, which means there's a really good chance Episode 7 will be substantially better than all three prequel movies combined.

Report: Schematics of 12.2-inch ‘iPad Air Plus’...

Japanese magazine Mac Fan has published what it claims are drawings for the much rumored upcoming 12-inch iPad (via Macotakara).

The report in Mac Fan, which refers to the 12-inch iPad as the iPad Air Plus, claims that the new iPad will include a 12.2-inch display, new A9 processor, four speakers to offer stereo sound in any orientation, and arrive sometime between April and June of next year.

Latest rumors for the device claimed iPad Pro would sport a smaller 12.2-inch display and a profile of 7mm, which lines up with the drawings published in the latest Mac Fan issue today. Several reports have pointed to a yet to be announced iPad that...

35 percent off iTunes gift cards – if you act fast

Heck, I thought getting 20% off iTunes gift cards was a good deal.

Turns out 35% off is a lot better.

Here’s how to get the deal of the year on iTunes gift cards.

Paypal Digital Gifts is offering a 25% deal ($100 iTunes code for $75) on eBay – which trumps Wednesday’s deal from Costso by five percent.

To make things sweeter, a tipster notified me that you can stack another $10 discount on top of the already good $100 code for $75 deal. Instead of clicking “Buy in Now” on eBay,...

Nintendo patent hints at official Game Boy emulator...

TechCrunch points to a newly published patent filed by Nintendo that shows the company is interested in bringing Game Boy titles to mobile devices through emulation technology. Many emulators exist online to mimic old consoles and allow gamers to play back catalogs of games converted to ROM files on Macs and PCs, and Nintendo could possibly do the same to officially bring titles to mobile devices without much heavy lifting in terms of rewriting the games:

Critically acclaimed console game ‘Oddworld Stranger...

Oddworld Stranger’s Wrath first debuted on the original Xbox in 2005 to praise from critics and today the game has officially arrived for iOS devices with some new additions and enhancements specifically for the smaller screens.

Developed by Oddworld Inhabitants, Stranger’s Wrath is the latest installment in the franchise despite being first released on the original Xbox almost 10 years ago. The title foregoes the side scrolling puzzler gameplay that made the original Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee and follow up games in the series popular when released on PlayStation in the late 90’s. Instead, Stranger’s Wrath is half first-person shooter, half third-person platformed with lots of the usual Oddworld exploration and theatrical soundtrack.

Android might have the sheer weight of numbers, but when it comes to ecommerce, it’s iPhone and iPad owners retailers want to attract. Online shopping data compiled from Thanksgiving shopping yesterday showed that despite iOS devices in the US being outnumbered almost two-to-one by Android, it’s iOS devices that dominate online purchasing.

iOS accounted for a quarter of online purchases, compared to less than 7% for Android devices. Average order value was also higher, at $118.57 compared to Android’s $95.25 … 

The data was compiled by IBM’s Digital Analytics unit, which reported that overall mobile purchasing was up...

WWI's March on Technologies


When the "Guns of August" began firing 100 years ago, few expected it to be a long war, and fewer still expected it to be a "World War." However, the "Great War," as it was known to contemporaries, in fact was destined to become the First World War -- and it truly was the first modern war. Today it is easy to look back at the Second World War for providing great technical advancements. It ushered in the atomic bomb, jet aircraft and even Silly Putty; however, the First World War also was a war of great technological advances.

Since his death in 2011 from pancreatic cancer, the former Apple CEO has won 141 patents. That’s more than most inventors win during their lifetimes.

Apple's Black Friday offer: iTunes Store gift...

Buy a gift, get a gift, and Apple will give a gift to the Global Fund—the Black Friday sale is on at the Apple Store. Apple’s one-day-only deals don’t save you any cash, but you do get a PRODUCT(RED) iTunes gift card with purchase, and Apple makes a donation too.

Buying an iPad or iPhone gets you a $50 gift card, while iPods and the Apple TV come with $25 gift cards—and so do Beats by Dr. Dre headphones and speakers. Mac buyers can get a $100 gift card when purchasing an iMac, MacBook Air, or MacBook Pro.

It’s worth noting that these are iTunes Store gift cards, not Apple Store gift cards. You can use them for apps (the App Store’s own RED promotion is still going on through December 7), as well as music, movies, audiobooks, iBooks, in-app purchases, and so on—but not a new iPhone.

iWork ’14 review: Still waiting for that great leap...

When Apple released the 2013 edition of the productivity suite formerly known as iWork, it represented a radical departure from iWork '09 and earlier versions. The "iWork" moniker disappeared along with upfront costs for many, and those were only two of the 2013 update's many changes. Things only move forward from there as the 2014 iteration doesn't backtrack, so those hoping for the old iWork to rise from the ashes will be disappointed.

However, Apple isn't plowing full steam ahead in the new direction either. This year's updates don't break much—if any—new ground. Rather, they add refinements, and version numbers reflect this: on the Mac, Keynote is now version 6.5, Pages 5.5, and Numbers 3.5 (up from 6.2.2, 5.2.2, and 3.2.2, respectively). And while...

Behind Apple's Sapphire Screen Debacle

Frankie70 (803801) writes Apple invested more than $1 billion in an effort to make sapphire one of iPhone 6's selling point. But the iPhone 6 was released without the sapphire screen. GT Advanced Technologies, the small company chosen to supply Apple with enormous quantities of cheap sapphire, declared bankruptcy a month later. Recent documents from GT's bankruptcy proceedings, and conversations with people familiar with operations at Apple and GT, provide several clues as to what went wrong. GT said that to save costs, Apple decided not to install backup power supplies, and multiple outages ruined whole batches of sapphire. The terms Apple negotiated committed GT to supplying a huge amount of sapphire, but put Apple under no obligation to buy it. In its bankruptcy documents, GT would later accuse Apple of using "bait-and-switch" tactics, and said the terms of the deal were "onerous and massively one-sided."

Two-factor authentication gets physical with USB U2F...

I’ve written a few times about two-factor authentication (2FA), where a password (something you know) is paired with a second item, like a device-generated token or one-time code sent via SMS (something you have). A password can be stolen or sometimes extracted, so a second factor makes it substantially more difficult for someone who lacks physical access to you or your stuff to break into one of your accounts. This restricts attackers from accomplishing wholesale attacks across thousands or millions of accounts, unless 2FA is badly implemented or attackers find an exploit.

While Apple has tried to take the pain out of 2FA through its trusted device approach with iCloud accounts, many people still believe this is too complicated for average users to employ. There needs to be something powerful, simple, and ubiquitously supported, they argue—as do I. Apple’s solution...

Looks like no Black Friday deals in European Apple...

While Apple Store customers in the U.S. can look forward to gift cards on selected purchases on Black Friday, it seems European customers may be missing out. Apple last year offered its European customers discounted pricing rather than gift cards, but rumors – including from the usually reliable MacG – say that there will be neither cards nor discounts this year … 

While Apple’s U.S. site shows the gift card offer, the European sites we’ve checked refer only to the donations Apple will make to Project (RED), with nothing about gift cards or discounts.

Back of iDevices set to lose ugly FCC markings as E-...

Apple’s master of minimalism Jony Ive probably hates the fact that the company is legally required to mark the back of iPhones and iPads with a bunch of regulatory stampings, but as of today the largest of them – the FCC approval symbols – will no longer be required.

The E-Label Act first proposed in July has today been signed into law by President Obama. Manufacturers will still be required to display FCC symbols, but can now do so in software rather than cluttering up the rear of the casing.

Apple will probably leave the markings in place on current devices, removing them as of the next generation. Settings > General > About seems the most likely...

Six second-screen apps just for NFL fans

In an era of always-near smartphones and tablets, it can be difficult to pay attention to one thing at a time—especially when you’re watching football. How can you resist the urge to zip through your Twitter feed, share your thoughts on that last big play, and constantly check scores for games you’re not watching? And if you’re a fantasy football nut, chances are you’re thinking about a half-dozen players on other teams even when your home team is on the big screen.

If you can’t resist having a second (or third, or fourth) screen in view while watching NFL action on Thanksgiving Day and for the rest of the season, at least make sure you’re using apps that will get you the info you need quickly without taking up too much of your attention span. Here are six apps to consider grabbing, from officially licensed companions to entertaining games that might even make a lackluster showdown seem exciting.

A judge in New York ordered an unnamed smartphone manufacturer to provide technical assistance in unlocking a device, something prosecutors argued under the All Writs Act of 1789. While the All Writs Act has been used in the past in technological situations, it could be the de facto means of law enforcement data requests in the future....

Adoption of iOS 8 rises to 60 percent after pause

Apple's iOS 8 adoption rate has returned to normal levels following a brief stagnation in the wake of the botched 8.0.1 update that was only very briefly available but caused havoc for the thousands who downloaded it, and temporarily made users hesitant to upgrade. In an update on iOS 8 distribution posted to its developer website, Apple said 60 percent of users registered with the iOS App Store are now running some version iOS 8 (up four percent from two weeks ago), with 35 percent running iOS 7 (down five percent from the same period)....

The good news is that you don’t need to wait for HomeKit to start bringing smart home technology to your family and friends – and we’ve put together a gift guide covering some of the main products that might bring a smile to their faces during the holidays.

With the right gadgets, they will be able to control lighting, heating, cooking, sound systems … even have their kettle switch on when they walk up to their front door, which will automatically unlock as they approach. Best of all, you can get them in on the smart home action from just $30 …

Vanity Fair:

I am afraid of the cops. Absolutely petrified of the cops. Now understand, I’ve never been arrested or held for questioning. I’ve never been told that I “fit the description.” But that doesn’t change a thing. I am afraid of cops the way that spiders are afraid of boots. You’re walking along, minding your own business, and SQUISH! You are dead.

Simply put, I am afraid of the cops because I am black.

I’m not as Black as Bell but I am the same height and weight and I know the feelings he describes.
