The king of Twitter

ReCode:

John Shahidi is the king of Twitter.

Teenagers beg him for retweets, and he appears in Vine videos where friends Justin Bieber and boxer Floyd Mayweather spar in the ring. Everything that Shahidi tweets — and we mean practically everything — is retweeted and favorited thousands of times. If Shahidi mentions you in a tweet, you’ll spend the next two weeks slogging through dozens of notifications every time you open the app.

Microsoft announced today that it’s rolling out standalone Office apps for iPhone after releasing the Word, Excel, and PowerPoint apps exclusively for iPad earlier this year. Microsoft previously had an “Office Mobile” app for iPhone that integrated features of all three Office apps, but today’s release of standalone Word, Excel, and PowerPoint apps for iPhone are officially replacing Office Mobile as Microsoft’s Office solution for iPhone.

iCloud Drive is backing up files you haven't...

The line between local and remote storage started blurring long ago. The moment you could save a file from within a program on a Mac or other OS to something that wasn’t a physically connected hard drive—whether a network file server, a remote AFP volume elsewhere on the Internet, or a Finder-mounted whatever—you had to make a conscious effort to remember what was entirely within your control and what was not. Sure, remote files used to take longer to save: we’d watch a progress bar or beachball on larger files, and the latency reminded us.

Cloud storage and backups typically remove that latency by relying on synchronization instead of real-time transfer. This is an advantage, as we can keep working and have a stream of data leave our computer or mobile device, and, in the event of loss, crash, or theft, often recover what we lost. BBEdit and Adobe InDesign have long saved my bacon with local “journaling,” writing nearly every keystroke into a local file used for recovery—...

Malicious software campaign targets Apple users in...

At first blush, this malware, known as WireLurker, seems reasonably innocuous, since it is initially delivered solely via an app store for jailbroken iOS devices in China. It’s a little more complicated than that, which makes it potentially a lot more of an issue.

CNN Anchors Caught On Camera Using Microsoft Surface...

MojoKid writes Since the release of its Surface Pro 3 tablet, Microsoft has pushed their new slate hard. It's as if the company wanted it to overwrite that part of our memory that recalls the Surface RT and it's monumental losses. This past August, we saw the company make a big move by deploying a boatload of Surface Pro tablets to every team in the NFL, gratis. All season so far, coaches and even players have made use of them to plan their next course-of-action, and for the most part, they seemed to be well-received. Unlike some of the products Microsoft tries to get us to adopt, the Surface Pro 3 really is a solid tablet / convertible. Unfortunately, at least where the CNN political team is concerned, Microsoft hasn't won over a few anchors, like they have in NFL, when they were supplied with brand-new Surface Pros. In recent shots captured and tweeted about, a Surface Pro 3 can be seen acting as an "iPad stand" and quite an expensive one. As humorous as this is, it might not...

Hot off the heels of their iPad app, the Pixelmator team have today released Pixelmator 3.3 for Mac. This update centers around design and structural optimizations for OS X Yosemite, including an extension for integration with other apps and a new icon to match the ‘flatter’ aesthetic of the operating system. The update also includes a new file format to improve syncing and compatibility with the iPad version.

Although the app largely resembles previous versions, with custom floating panels and black chrome, it now takes advantage of Apple’s transparency effects to mesh well with the OS.

8 ways to take better photos with any camera

Now that ghosts and goblins have cleared the way for the turkeys and reindeer, the prime holiday picture-taking season is upon us. To avoid getting disappointing photos that you can’t reshoot, you can follow these tips to increase your photographic prowess and take better pictures with any camera…including your iPhone.

Half-press your shutter button

If you remember just one thing from this column, remember this: Always half-press your camera’s shutter button before taking the shot. This tells your camera which area to focus on and lets it calculate how to best capture your scene’s lighting. When you hear two quick beeps, depress the shutter button fully to capture the shot.

Forgot your hotel room key? Use your iPhone instead

You glide past the front desk of a high-end hotel, room number in hand. No one stops you. You belong here. The interiors are sharp and gleaming, the
carpets plush. You emerge from the elevator and bolt straight to your room. You press the face of your Apple Watch against the lock. The door opens. Your
soundtrack is playing. Your favorite scent wafts through the air.

This is the life Starwood Hotels & Resorts, parent company of the swanky Aloft, Element, and W Hotel chains, wants you to live, if you’re a member of
its Starwood Preferred Guest rewards program. And while the Apple Watch isn’t here yet, you can almost touch the future with SPG’s new keyless card, which

Forbes factored in items such as how many products Apple moved in 2014, which pushed the company’s brand value up 19% over last year’s. That Apple would top a list of most valuable brands for the year likely comes as no big surprise to most readers. The company launched...

Download the “Complete Sherlock Holmes”, Arthur...

Open Culture:

I still remember the thrill I felt when I happened upon a set of the complete Sherlock Holmes stories at an antique store. For a mere ten dollars, I acquired handsomely bound, suitably patina-of-age-bearing editions of each and every one of the sleuth of 221B Baker Street’s adventures that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle ever wrote.

These days, especially given the recent ruling (just re-affirmed by the Supreme Court) that Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes stories “are no longer covered by United States copyright law and can be freely used by creators without paying any licensing fee to the Conan Doyle estate,” you can download the complete Sherlock Holmes canon in a variety of ebook formats, from PDF to ePub to ASCII to MOBI for Kindle.

At age 11, I received the complete works as a Christmas present from my grandmother. I devoured the stories before New Years and read them over and over again for years. I’m downloading this as we speak.

Typically when such software pops up, as it does from time to time, one of the key factors that allows the malicious code to run on iOS is whether the device is jailbroken. The new “WireLurker” malware, however, is installed on the mobile device over USB by an infected Mac.

These infected Mac apps are reportedly coming from the Maiyadi App Store, a third-party software storefront operated in China. Palo Alto Networks says over 400 apps in the store are affected, and have been downloaded over 356,000...

Why the Time Is Always Set To 9:41 In Apple Ads

jones_supa writes If you have looked carefully, the clock has traditionally been always set to 9:42 in Apple advertisements. You could see it across various commercials, print ads, and even on Apple's website. The explanation is simple: That's the time in the morning that Steve Jobs announced the very first iPhone in 2007. Around 42 minutes into his keynote address he said "Today Apple is going to reinvent the phone." The picture of the phone was carefully scheduled to pop up at that moment. "We design the keynotes so that the big reveal of the product happens around 40 minutes into the presentation", Apple's Scott Forstall confirms. The time was even slightly tweaked in 2010, when the very first iPad was released, so that when it was revealed, it displayed a different time: 9:41.

Unless you decided to hit save before you start typing, or manually changed the default settings, those meeting notes, passwords, and credit card numbers you jotted down in “Untitled 17” are living in iCloud.

The Facebook-owned app, which would previously show double check marks if a sent message had been received, now goes one step further and turns those check marks blue if the message has been read.

As can be found in the app’s newly-updated FAQ, group chat and broadcast messages are also impacted by this change. In that case, the two checkmarks will turn blue after every participant within the group has read the message. As mentioned, this feature isn’t part of an update to the app through the App Store, but rather something that the company has pushed...

Something in the startup of the OS isn't showing the fiber LUNs at that time, so the client asks the MDCs again, and again, and so on.

5 cool widgets for Yosemite's Notification...

With Mac OS X Yosemite, Apple has largely left Dashboard behind. Instead, it’s replaced the tired apps that once lurked to the left of the home screen with polished and useful widgets in the updated Notification Center. To access these widgets, just click on Notification Center in the top-right of the Mac’s menu bar or, if you’re using a trackpad, swipe left with two fingers from the right edge and, in no time, you’ll be checking the weather, performing some quick math, or zipping through your email.

Although Notification widgets are new with Yosemite, several developers have already jumped on board by adding widget support to their apps. To add a widget, just open Notification Center, click the Edit button, and click the plus (+) button next to the widget you’d like to add.

There is one rumor going around that Apple might drop the iPad mini in 2015. A vague suspicion of less than stellar sales for 2015 and a not so scintillating upgrade to the iPad mini 3 may have some wondering. John Martellaro doesn't believe a word of it and sizes up the situation.

Apple takes top spot on Forbes list of world's...

Apple has grabbed first place in an annual Forbes ranking of the world's most valuable brands. The company's brand value rose 19 percent year-over-year, to $124.2 billion. "The Apple brand is worth twice as much as any other brand on the planet by our count. The company sold 39.3 million iPhones in its latest quarter and could sell as many as 60 million during the last three months of 2014 with the holiday selling season. Apple also moved 12.3 million iPads and 5.5 million Macs last quarter," Forbes writes....

A new Bluetooth keyboard from Rapoo is bringing some of the functionality of a notebook to wireless keyboards. The E6700 Bluetooth Touchpad Keyboard features a "touch area" on the right side of the thin keyboard that has added functionality for gestures. The E6700 lets owners configure 15 different gestures, bringing the keyboard closer to the use seen in MacBooks and other notebooks. The "touch area" also has a glass surface, which Rapoo says makes it scratch resistant and easier to clean....

EFF: Apple’s iMessage most secure “mass-market”...

The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) today released a report examining three dozen messaging services and ranking them based on what it deemed are seven “security best practices.” While Apple scored the best among what the EFF called “mass-market options”, it didn’t do as well when compared to all 36 messaging services included in the report. Specifically, EFF noted Apple’s iMessage and FaceTime services failed to offer “complete protection against sophisticated, targeted forms of surveillance.”

Apple’s iMessage and FaceTime products stood out as the best of the mass-market options, although neither currently provides complete protection against sophisticated, targeted forms of...

Facebook's Voter Turnout Efforts: Good, Bad or...


In the months leading up to Tuesday's mid-term elections, suspicions were rife about the possibility of Facebook influencing the outcome. Facebook had joined Google, Twitter and other high-tech companies in urging people to vote, but skepticism about its motives ran high because in previous elections, it had turned its call to voters into sociological experiments, trying different approaches on different groups. Facebook in essence said that this year it would roll out the same message to all 100 million or so U.S. members.

Google has announced a collection of important app updates. The Google Maps apps for iOS and Android are both making the switch to "material design," the new aesthetic behind Android Lollipop. The scheme is more bright and colorful, and uses touches like animations and drop shadows to reinforce the connection between interface elements. Google has also integrated OpenTable reservations for US restaurants, and pickup times and prices for Uber cars. In the latter case, users must also have their platform's Uber app installed....

Unpatched bug in Mac OS X gives root access to...

An unpatched vulnerability in Yosemite and some earlier versions of Apple's Mac OS X allows untrusted people to take full control of users' machines, a security researcher has warned.

Dubbed Rootpipe, the privilege escalation bug allows people to gain root access, a nearly unrestricted level of system privileges, without first entering the "sudo" password, according to a recent report published by MacWorld. Sudo is a mechanism that's designed to prevent code execution, file deletions, and other sensitive operations from being carried out by unauthorized people who have physical access to a computer.

"Normally there are 'sudo' password requirements, which work as a barrier, so the admin can't gain root access without entering the correct password," Emil Kvarnhammar, a researcher at Swedish security firm Truesec,...

RIP Mac OS X Hints, Nov 4 2000 – Nov 4 2014

The Robservatory:

Dearly beloved…

On this, the occasion of its 14th birthday, we’re gathered here to mark the passing of Mac OS X Hints.

While it can be hard to tell exactly when a web site has died, the signs are fairly obvious. It’s been over 45 days since the last new hint appeared on the site. There is no way for new users to sign up for an account. There’s been one new comment posted in the last two days. A sidebar box proudly proclaims Latest Mountain Lion Hints. The site design, logo, and icons were last updated when I worked for Macworld, over four years ago. To paraphrase a Star Trek character, “it’s dead, Jim.”

While Rob, the originator of Mac OS X Hints, makes a clear case as to why the site is no longer as needed as it has been in the past, it’s dormancy is still a shame. It was a site many of us relied on in the early days of Mac OS X to try and figure out the ins and outs of the new operating system.

What am I entitled to when my flight goes wrong?

Outside:

As airlines pack more passengers than ever onto each plane, a single storm can reverberate through the system—leaving flyers stranded as agents scramble to find ever-rarer empty seats on later flights. But you aren’t entirely at the mercy of the airlines. Should your itinerary be delayed, cancelled, or overbooked, knowing your rights can be the difference between a $300 voucher and a long night at the airport.

As air travel gets more and more onerous, it’s important to know what you are supposed to receive when the airline makes a mistake. As always, be firm but polite with any airline agents you speak to.

The conflict between MCX’s CurrentC and Apple Pay may be short lived, as an exclusivity agreement that has caused some merchants involved in the MCX consortium — notably drug store chain CVS — to abruptly pull support for NFC-based payment systems, including Apple Pay and Google Wallet, is set to expire in “months,” according to a new report.

Per Re/code, the consortium, which is made up of a number of major retailers including CVS, Best Buy, and Wal-Mart, instituted the exclusivity contract to provide “breathing room” for the development of the CurrentC ecosystem, said MCX CEO Dekkers Davidson. That contract is set to expire in “months, not years,” Dekkers added.

Confirmation of the exclusivity agreement comes one week after the arrangement was first uncovered, following...
