Apple Sapphire Glass Supplier GT Advanced Files For...

mrspoonsi writes GT Advanced Technologies is filing for bankruptcy. In an announcement on Monday, GT Advanced, which makes sapphire displays that many investors hoped would be in Apple's newest iPhone, said that it was filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. In early September, shares of GT Advanced got crushed after the company's sapphire displays were not in the latest version of Apple's iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. GT Advanced, however, signed a multi-year agreement with Apple last November to supply the company with sapphire material. That agreement included a $578 million prepayment, which GT Advanced is set to repay Apple over a five-year period starting in 2015.

The Importance of Being FOSS


It's a fact of life in virtually every community that there will be countless daily distractions -- news announcements, controversies, squabbles -- that take up the majority of our time and energy, leaving little for the big picture. The Linux community is no exception. That's why it was such a relief to see a post recently that struck directly to the core of all that is FOSS and offered a reminder as to what it's really all about. It was penned -- not surprisingly -- by none other than legendary Linux luminary and FOSS guru Carla Schroder.

This could be really beautiful if they get it right.

Per 9to5Mac and blogger Jack March, a new line of iMacs with ultra high-resolution Retina Displays is in late testing stages within Apple, according to sources close to the story who’ve claimed to have used prototypes of the desktop. While the machine will sport a thin profile similar to that of the current design, which was introduced in 2012, it will be packed with new internals such as faster processors and improved Wi-Fi antennas. The fact that the iMac is in late testing indicates that Apple could be preparing to launch it alongside OS X Yosemite this fall…

There’s a few more things Apple needs to tell you about.

Per re/code, sources close to the story have stated that Apple will hold its next special event on Thursday, October 16th, not the 21st as previously rumored. Headlining the gathering: The latest updates to its iPad line, along with next-gen iMacs that have been cycling through the rumor mills of late.

OS X Yosemite, which recently went gold master, is also expected to make an appearance. Given the breadth and spectacle of Apple’s September event, this one will be a more laid-back affair held at the company’s Town Hall Auditorium in Cupertino.

Apple has denied comment as to the story, but stay tuned to the PowerPage for additional details as they become available.

Shellshock fix posted for Mac OS X 10.4 to Mac OS X...

This suggestion came in over the weekend from one Larry Macy, Ph.D over at the University of Pennsylvania and it’s pretty interesting.

For those of you still running Mac OS X 10.4 to Mac OS X 10.6.8, a workaround has been discovered for the recently discovered Shellshock bash vulnerabilities. Per Macy, the process replaces bash and sh with a new version of bash.

There’s a fair amount to it and you’ll be diving into your Terminal application a bit to set it up, but it should help keep your older versions of Mac OS X that much more secure.

Thanks for the tip, Larry, and if you’ve seen something new and useful and cool in the Mac and iOS world, please don’t hesitate to mention it in the comments.

What implications this has on Apple’s upcoming Watch wearable, which uses a sapphire screen cover for both Apple Watch and Apple Watch Edition models, is currently unclear. Apple also uses sapphire from GTAT in its iPhone lineup, for the camera cover and the Touch ID sensor.

Windows 95 running on an Android watch

[VIDEO] The Verge:

What happens when you give an Android Wear smartwatch to a 16-year-old with a bit too much time on his hands? You get Windows 95 on your wrist. Now, we frankly have no idea why you’d load a desktop operating system from twenty years ago onto a Samsung Gear Live smartwatch with a 1.63-inch display, but, hey, why not? Thanks to emulator software available for Android, this technology mishmash is a reality.

The Livestream app has been updated today with a couple of new features, including bug fixes for iOS 8. The headline change however is that the app has added integration with GoPro Hero cameras. This means you can now stream straight to the web whilst in the midst of action.

Effectively, the iPhone acts as a network hub, connecting the GoPro camera to the Internet. The GoPro connects to the phone wirelessly, so the iPhone can just be left in a pocket — like a wireless hotspot. The app handles the uploading of the video in realtime.

You can download the Livestream app for free from the App Store.

He explained: “So the fact that in any application I can buy something, that’s fantastic. The fact I don’t need a physical card anymore, I just do that transaction and you’re going to be quite sure about who it is on the other end, that is a real contribution.”

Adobe might not be the first name that springs to mind when you think smartphone and tablet apps, despite a gradual encroachment into mobile over the last few years. On Monday, the revered software publisher solidified that commitment with the launch of nine new and updated apps and connected services.

The timing coincides with the company’s annual Adobe MAX creativity conference, which kicked off at the Los Angeles Convention Center over the weekend. During a livestreamed keynote, executives laid out Adobe’s sweeping plans for a “new mobile canvas” that better unites iOS devices with the existing universe of Creative Cloud desktop applications.

How the world sees Apple Pay

Cincinnati Enquirer:

How it works: Customers with the new iPhone 6 and the Apple Watch will be able to pay at registers with a wave of their devices. Customers buy virtual encrypted “tokens” from Apple to be stored on their phones – so in the event they’re lost or stolen, no credit card info is on the device. More details will be released this month by Apple.

I still struggle to get my head around exactly how Apple Pay works, but I do know that customers won’t be buying “virtual encrypted tokens” from Apple.

Surprise: Mac iWorm Spreads through Pirated Apps

When news of Mac.BackDoor.iWorm for the Mac hit the Web last week, the way the malware threat spread was still something of a mystery, but that's been uncovered now, too: pirated software. Like so many other malware threats, attackers are using the promise of free software as a trojan horse to trick victims trying to save a buck into installing the iWorm payload.

The Mac Observer Spin: Using pirated software as a trojan horse to install iWorm doesn't come as a surprise at all. Using stolen software is bad not only because hard working developers don't get paid for their work, but also because you could infect your Mac with malware.

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...

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...

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.

“That is such horses—t. Listen, what the f—k‚ did you need to see? The video of the guy that’s doing this, and if you could have seen his face he probably would have been purple and the veins are coming out of his fingers. And the thing moves a little bit? Are you sh—ing me?”

iOS 8 How-to: Manually control the exposure in the...

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.

Review combo: Inateck Bluetooth Audio Receiver and...

Today we’re taking a look at two iOS device accessories from Inateck- the Bluetooth Audio Receiver and 1.2m Micro USB Cable with Apple Lightning Adapter.

Bluetooth Audio Receiver 

Upon initial inspection, the Bluetooth Audio Receiver might not look like it’s capable of much. The entire unit measures only 40x40x11.5mm. However, this device is capable of driving Bluetooth 3.0 audio through any speaker system with a standard 3.5mm connection.

The receiver is very lightweight, and made entirely of plastic. You could easily carry it in your pocket without feeling it at all....

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...

External Link: Vogue Profiles Jony Ive

Another sign of Apple’s push into the fashion world: Vogue magazine has published an in-depth profile of Jony Ive, Apple’s SVP of Design. Interestingly, Vogue got to look at the Apple Watch weeks before it was announced. The article details Ive’s upbringing, education, and his design philosophies. “I think what we sincerely try to do is create objects and products and ideas that are new and innovative,” Ive said, “but at the same time there is a slightly peculiar familiarity to them.”

Back in 1994, the internet was still a wide open frontier. WebCrawler was the state of the art in search engines. It was able to index the complete text of every site on the web. Excite, the first real portal site, was just getting started. And the music industry had no concept of what was coming.

Apple has announced that iAd is now available in nine additional countries: Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, and Sweden. This means iAd is now available in a total of twenty-five countries spanning North America, Europe and Asia.

Apple says that it continues to support iAd to help developers make more money. It’s not a stretch to say that the initiative has not met expectations and now primarily serves commercials for iTunes Radio. Developers using the program have anecdotally reported poor fill rates versus iAd’s competitors.

However, the addition of new countries shows that Apple has not abandoned the project. On a...

With its increased size and flexibility, the device not only has kicked off the "Bendgate" scandal, but also may be helping to start a new fashion trend. American Eagle, Levi's, L.L.Bean, J.Crew, Lee Jeans and Uniqlo are among the brands that have admitted they're now reconsidering pocket size in light of the growing phablet trend.

The Sony Pictures-produced, Aaron Sorkin-authored big-budget biopic of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs has undergone some changes recently, notes The Hollywood Reporter. Original director David Fincher who was previously reported to have left the project, has been replaced by Slumdog Millionaire's Danny Boyle. Boyle, who wanted Leonardo DiCaprio for the title role in the movie, will have to pick another star, as DiCaprio has dropped out of the race for the part. Other actors possibly in the running include Ben Affleck, Christian Bale (Fincher's original choice), Bradley Cooper and Matt Damon....

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.

The Dr. Web report doesn’t say how Mac.BackDoor.iWorm is being...

Remember RealPlayer? Well, the company behind that software has been granted a jury trial in an antitrust lawsuit from 2004. 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.
