iOS 8 Roundup: The best weather widgets for...

When Apple introduced iOS 7 with an overhauled design for the iPhone and iPad software, it replaced the weather widget showing current temperature and weekly forecast introduced with iOS 5 with a text summary of the day’s weather conditions. This weather summary includes an icon for the current weather condition as well as a text description like ‘mostly cloudy’, but it tends to give you the high and low temperatures of the day and not the current temperature like Apple’s former weather widget.

Luckily, iOS 8 allows developers to create third-party widgets including – you guessed it – weather widgets with current temperature...

Review: Worried about iPhone 6/6 Plus bending in...

This holster case from Toronto-based LD West seems completely ridiculous at first glance, but it starts to make a lot more sense when you realize your oversized iPhone 6 or 6 Plus might no longer fit in your pants pocket. Strapping my phone to my side with what looks like an over-the-shoulder gun holster doesn’t exactly vibe with my usually minimalistic approach to iPhone cases. But it turns out the product is much more than just the gimmick I thought it was.

It’s not the first iPhone case that lets you go hands-free without everyone seeing a huge bulge in your pants, but you probably won’t want to wear one of...

How-To: How to check and manage battery usage under...

Ok, this is nifty.

Or at least it’ll make Thanksgiving encounters with your relatives wherein they show you their iPhone, ask why it’s only getting 90 minutes of battery life and you point out the 67 open applications while wondering how you’re related to these people a bit easier.

Per AppleInsider, a new new battery tracking feature can be found in iOS 8 by opening the Settings application and navigating to General, Usage, Battery Usage. The list will take a second to populate before displaying a list of apps and how much energy they are consumed.

Apps can be listed in terms of battery usage over the last 24 hours, and over the last week. The percentages displayed show the proportion of battery used by each application when the iPhone...

Some users are also complaining about Wi-Fi going missing, but that was an issue touched off by v8.0 and tends to manifest occasionally in Apple firmware updates....

Apple has finally released the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, and that means tons of new buyers are now becoming sellers—of their old phones. While it probably would have been best to sell that device a month ago to maximize its value, some people just didn’t have that luxury. The good news, though, is that many merchants are still offering very decent trade in values. My good condition 16 GB iPhone 5 falls between $150 and $200 depending on where I look.

Security Collapse In the HTTPS Market

CowboyRobot writes: HTTPS has evolved into the de facto standard for secure Web browsing. Through the certificate-based authentication protocol, Web services and Internet users first authenticate one another ("shake hands") using a TLS/SSL certificate, encrypt Web communications end-to-end, and show a padlock in the browser to signal that a communication is secure. In recent years, HTTPS has become an essential technology to protect social, political, and economic activities online. At the same time, widely reported security incidents (such as DigiNotar's breach, Apple's #gotofail, and OpenSSL's Heartbleed) have exposed systemic security vulnerabilities of HTTPS to a global audience. The Edward Snowden revelations (notably around operation BULLRUN, MUSCULAR, and the lesser-known FLYING PIG program to query certificate metadata on a dragnet scale) have driven the point home that HTTPS is both a major target of government hacking and eavesdropping, as well as an effective measure...

∞ Apple’s statement on the UNIX Bash vulnerability

Apple provided me with the following statement today:

“The vast majority of OS X users are not at risk to recently reported bash vulnerabilities. Bash, a UNIX command shell and language included in OS X, has a weakness that could allow unauthorized users to remotely gain control of vulnerable systems. With OS X, systems are safe by default and not exposed to remote exploits of bash unless users configure advanced UNIX services. We are working to quickly provide a software update for our advanced UNIX users.”

Clearly, most users do not use the advanced UNIX services.

Yes, recent versions of Mac OS X are vulnerable to the critical “Shellshock” Bash bug revealed earlier this week, including OS X Mavericks—but don’t sweat it unless you’re doing ninja-level Unix tricks with shell commands already.

That comes straight from Apple, which provided iMore with the following comment on the Shellshock bug:

Only nine people complained to Apple about the

iPhone 6 Plus bending in their pockets
, but that’s not going to stop the Internet from joking about #Bendgate. So the company is trying to manage its PR crisis by opening the doors to its super
secret testing facility. Yes, Apple puts its new phones through the ol’ sit-down test.

About 15,000 iPhone 6 and 6 Plus units were tested before the devices began shipping last week. That’s a drop in the bucket compared to the more than 10
million phones Apple has sold so far, but the sample devices were run through various scenarios that they might endure day-to-day. Then they were tortured.

Bent iPhone 6 Plus? There’s a Replacement for That

If you're among the massive horde nine people suffering from a bent iPhone 6, Apple will replaces it for you - assuming it hasn't been intentionally twisted out of shape, of course. You'll have to make a trip to your Apple Store's Genius Bar for a visual inspection, and if your 6 Plus is deemed worthy of replacement, you'll head back out the store with a flat iPhone.

The Mac Observer Spin: Of course Apple is replacing bent iPhones. That's the right thing, and the smart thing, to do.

880K Creditcards Stolen in TripAdvisor’s Viator Data...

Tripadvisor's Viator service said credit card information for some 880,000 of its users has been compromised in a data breach where customer data for 1.4 million subscribers was taken. Unauthorized charges have been showing up on some subscriber's cards, and Tripadvisor is currently saying it isn't sure how the attackers gained access to the user data.

The Mac Observer Spin: Considering how many online database breaches are happening, maybe companies need to work on finding a better way to manage our creditcards. Alternately, users can turn to apps like 1Password that auto-fill creditcard information so it's stored locally instead of on a remote -- and potentially hackable -- server.

It’s hard to think of anything lower-tech than a Post-it note: you write on a sticky square of paper and slap it onto a physical surface. But 3M has just launched a clever iOS app that allows you to photograph a bunch of Post-it notes, tap on-screen to select the ones you want to keep and then organize them on your iPhone or iPad before outputting to apps like PowerPoint.

The Post-it® Plus App takes the momentum from your collaboration sessions and keeps it rolling. Simply capture your notes, organize and share with everyone. That way your great ideas don’t stop when the meeting ends.

Getting started is easy. Use the app to capture an image of the Post-it® Notes from your work session. Arrange, refine and organize the notes and ideas on your board anyway you see fit. Then share your organized board with your team and send to your favorite applications —including PowerPoint, Excel, Dropbox and plenty more.

The best Notification Center widgets in iOS 8 right...

The feature I’m enjoying the most in iOS 8 is its Notification Center widgets. I was always a little envious of my Android-touting friends who had custom widgets with handy info on one glanceable screen, so I’m thrilled that widgets finally got the iOS treatment. Just a quick swipe down from the top of your iPhone’s screen brings you to a snapshot of all of the need-to-know info from different apps, and you get to pick what widgets show up there.  

Though not all third-party apps are compatible with Notification Center widgets, there are a bunch of outstanding apps that are. Here’s a look at apps that you can install as widgets, right now.

First things first 

Before you download any new apps, take a look at your current Notification Center to see what’s already there. Swipe down from the top of your screen, then tap the Today tab. This is how iOS 8 does widgets—in a uniform, minimalist design that’s easy on the eyes.

Apple will survive its terrible, horrible, no good,...

Apple’s having a tough time. Its annual one-two punch of an iPhone launch plus an iOS upgrade—usually a time for celebration—has been followed this year by a compounding series of embarrassments. Forget that the company sold 10 million phones in three days and moved half of its installed base to a new version of its mobile operating system: it’s still been a rough week for Tim Cook and company.

First, an iOS 8 bug prevented any of the health and fitness apps that were ready to launch with HealthKit integration from hitting the App Store. Health is a major initiative for Apple, so the hiccup was a big one. Then, once the iPhone 6 Plus began shipping, some buyers reported their phones were bending when put under pressure. Now,...

Apple has released iOS 8.0.2 tonight, just one day after releasing and pulling iOS 8.0.1, which was immediately received with complaints of cellular and Touch ID issues from iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus users. iOS 8.0.2 resolves those problems, and also allows HealthKit apps to be available on the App Store, among other fixes....

[Updated: iOS 8.0.2 is now available, and Apple issues apology] The promised fix for iOS 8.0.1 will come in the form of an v8.0.2 download "as soon as it's ready in the next few days," according to a new Apple support document. In the meantime, the webpage offers instructions on how to downgrade to iOS 8.0 using iTunes and direct download links for iPhone 6 and 6 Plus versions of the firmware. The Health app won't work in iOS 8 after these steps. It will be fixed in our upcoming iOS 8.0.2 software update," the company continues....

via Opower

Some new numbers from the Opower blog have revealed how much you can expect to spend when charging your iPhone 6 or 6 Plus. At average U.S. energy prices, the cost comes in at a mere $.47 per year for the smaller 4.7-inch device. The 5.5-inch model will run a little extra due to its larger battery, coming in at just over half a dollar for a total of $.52 per year on average. As you might expect, this year’s larger devices will cost a little more than the smaller iPhone 5, which cost only...

Pale Moon Shines for Classic Firefox Fans


The Pale Moon Web browser project gets rid of a problem that many Mozilla Firefox users would like to solve. The Pale Moon browser is a fork of Mozilla's official browser developed by Moonchild Productions. It provides users with access to all of their favorite Firefox extensions but eliminates the Australis interface, which some dislike. Firefox debuted the new user interface in late April in the Firefox 29 release. That interface redesign was the first major UI overhaul since Firefox 4 was released in March 2011.

iOS 8.0.2 released to fix TouchID, cell network woes...

Patch notes! We considered rewriting them in Comic Sans for funsies, but cooler heads prevailed.

On Thursday evening, Apple gave its first major iOS 8 update another shot—only this time without the major bugs in yesterday's attempt. Upon installation, iOS 8.0.1 left many iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus users with non-functioning cellular service and TouchID buttons. Apple told CNBC that 40,000 people were affected by the problems, and the update was quickly pulled.

iOS 8.0.2 is now available for all compatible iDevices, and its patch notes look remarkably like those from 8.0.1, with one major update: "Fixes an issue in iOS 8.0.1 that impacted cellular network connectivity and Touch ID on iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus." Otherwise, the good stuff we'd hoped for yesterday, including...

Apple quickly issues iOS 8.0.2 update

Late Thursday, Apple issued the iOS 8.0.2 update, which follows quickly on the heels of the flawed-and-quickly-pulled 8.0.1 update that disabled Touch ID and cellular capabilities on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. This latest update not only addresses these issues but reinstates the improvements and fixes initially found in iOS 8.0.1. They include:

Addresses an issue where third-party keyboards could become deselected when a user enters their passcode.

Fixes an issue that prevented some apps from accessing photos from the Photo Library.

This may avert another 24 hours of iOS update crisis.

Per MacRumors, Apple on Thursday released iOS 8.0.2.

The update, which is available as an over-the-air update or via iTunes, includes the bug fixes that were included in the original iOS 8.0.1 update as well as repairs Touch ID and cellular services.

After installing iOS 8.0.1 yesterday, many iPhone 6 and 6 Plus users found that their cellular service was disabled and that Touch ID was non-functional. Apple pulled the iOS 8.0.1 update approximately an hour and fifteen minutes after it was first released, but not before numerous iPhone users were able to download the software. The company announced an investigation in the afternoon, and in the evening, released a support document saying iOS 8.0.2 was in the works and directing users...

Apple offers video tour of iPhone testing facility

Continuing to fight back against claims that the iPhone 6 Plus is structurally unsound and prone to bending in people's pockets, Apple has given some tech reporters a tour of the iPhone quality testing lab, showing that it does and did test the new iPhone to simulate situations like those seen in videos to aggravate or cause bending. The original instigator of the furor has noted that his iPhone 6 Plus was slightly bent right out of the box -- opening up the possibility that some batches, rather than the phone itself, could have structural issues....

Apple Redoubles Efforts to Fix iOS 8 Glitches


Apple on Thursday announced it's preparing iOS 8.0.2 -- which will include a fix for problems triggered by iOS 8.0.1 -- and plans to release it in the next few days. In a rare move, Apple on Wednesday suspended downloads of iOS 8.0.1, which aimed to fix problems uncovered after the launch of iOS 8. What's more, it recommended a downgrade for owners of Apple's new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus who lost their cellular service and use of their phone's Touch ID fingerprint reader due to the flawed iOS 8.0.1 update.

FBI Chief: Apple, Google Phone Encryption Perilous

An anonymous reader writes The FBI is concerned about moves by Apple and Google to include encryption on smartphones. "I like and believe very much that we should have to obtain a warrant from an independent judge to be able to take the contents," FBI Director James Comey told reporters. "What concerns me about this is companies marketing something expressly to allow people to place themselves beyond the law." From the article: "Comey cited child-kidnapping and terrorism cases as two examples of situations where quick access by authorities to information on cellphones can save lives. Comey did not cite specific past cases that would have been more difficult for the FBI to investigate under the new policies, which only involve physical access to a suspect's or victim's phone when the owner is unable or unwilling to unlock it for authorities."

Inside the building where Apple tortures the iPhone 6

The Verge:

A few blocks away from Apple’s bustling campus in Cupertino is a rather nondescript building. Inside is absolutely the last place on earth you’d want to be if you were an iPhone. It’s here where Apple subjects its newest models to the kinds of things they might run into in the real world: drops, pressure, twisting, tapping. Basically all the things that could turn your shiny gadget into a small pile of metal and glass.

I got a tour of this part of Apple’s operation many years ago and was very surprised to see just how much stress testing Apple did in-house on everything.

To further prove its commitment to building solid devices, Apple gave journalists access to the lab where it tests the build quality of its iPhones.

In a tour of the facility guided by SVP of Hardware Engineering Dan Riccio, reporters...

Researchers on Thursday discovered proof-of-concept code that could take advantage of unpatched computer systems, and found evidence of attacks exploiting the BASH Shellshock bug in the wild. Shellshock, revealed Wednesday, could become a major threat to Linux/Unix and Apple operating systems if published patches to BASH are not applied before an attacker cashes in. However, there's some concern that the current patches may not be complete. The U.S. Computer Emergency Readiness Team on Thursday issued a warning about the vulnerability.

∞ Apple’s statement on the iPhone 6 bending

Here is a statement Apple provided to me today about the iPhone bending:

“Our iPhones are designed, engineered and manufactured to be both beautiful and sturdy. iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus feature a precision engineered unibody enclosure constructed from machining a custom grade of 6000 series anodized aluminum, which is tempered for extra strength. They also feature stainless steel and titanium inserts to reinforce high stress locations and use the strongest glass in the smartphone industry. We chose these high-quality materials and construction very carefully for their strength and durability. We also perform rigorous tests throughout the entire development cycle including 3-point bending, pressure point cycling, sit, torsion, and user studies. iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus meet or exceed all of our high quality standards to endure everyday, real life use.

With normal use a bend in iPhone is extremely rare and through our first six days of sale, a total of nine...
