Android security vulnerabilities and why it's a...

Apple World Today has broached the topic of operating system fragmentation before. iOS is an example of a mobile operating system that doesn’t suffer from fragmentation, as the vast majority of the devices in the field run either iOS 8 (85 percent) or iOS 7 (13 percent). In the world of Android, only 12.4 percent of users are using the most recent versions known as “Lollipop”. Why the difference in operating system uptake? Android handset manufacturers are loath to change the loaded OS version since that will affect the “bloatware” apps that they install. Some recently discovered Android vulnerabilities are pointing out how fragmentation could make it very difficult for Google to protect users from exploits that can “brick” smartphones and tablets with something as simple as an MMS message.

The “Stagefright” vulnerability has been fixed by Google in the most recent versions of Lollipop...

Goodbye, Android

As security researcher Nicholas Weaver put it in a (now deleted) tweet, ”Imagine if Windows patches had to pass through Dell and your ISP before they came to you? And neither cared? That is called Android.”

The way Android users get updates is just so screwed up.

Cusby: A Modular & Expandable USB-C Dock for...

Cusby has launched an Indiegogo project to deliver a modular and expandable USB-C dock system. As the developper describes it: "It starts by connecting a Cusby unit to any USB-C port.... From there, multiple Cusbys can be linked together like Lego blocks to create their own combination of ports for any situation. Every time a new Cusby is added, a new USB-C port is created, so there is always a free port available. We've lined up 3 models at launch: Power charger, USB-A and HDMI. Other ports in the pipeline are Thunderbolt, Display Port and Ethernet" Various contribution levels are available that include 1,2 or more Cusby blocks. Delivery is expected in October 2015.

Apple releases iOS 8.4.1 beta 2 to registered...

Apple has released an updated build of iOS 8.4.1 for registered developers to test on iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. iOS 8.4.1 beta 2 features build number 12H318 and comes just over two weeks after the initial beta version.

While the initial beta of iOS 8.4.1 didn’t feature any noticeable changes, the X.X.1 label suggests it is primarily an under-the-hood update to iOS 8.4 without feature or visual changes. iOS 8.4 launched in late June and introduced Apple Music with Beats 1 to the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.

iOS 8.4 also delivered a number of other changes including an...

Apple has released a second iOS 8.4.1 beta to developers. Featuring a build number of 12H318, this second release, like the first, provides no release notes, and likely simply addresses unresolved issues with Apple Music and other features from last month’s iOS 8.4 release. The latest build has not yet appeared for direct download on the Apple Developer site; it is currently only available as an over-the-air update to those running the first…

Stay on top of your favorite YouTube channels with...

If you want to know precisely when your favorite YouTube channels post a new video -- and I mean the very second -- Tube Alert (free with in-app purchase to remove ads) is for you.

Tube Alert is a stand-alone app that lets you subscribe to your favorite providers and receive a notification whenever they publish something new. When you watch a video on Tube Alert, you can comment, like and share just as you do with the YouTube app.

When you do thinks like comment and share, you earn "Tube Points," which is a virtual in-app currency that can be spent in the Tube Alert Store (still in beta). As of this writing, the store isn't very full-featured, but it will eventually let you exchange points for gift cards and coupons for products that channel operators or other relevant brands make available.

It's an interesting idea, as I don't want to miss a single video from...

Yahoo has released its LiveText app, an app that streams video without audio and allows you to send text, icons and emoji. The thought behind this is that the expressiveness of the video makes the conversation more authentic and adds to the nuances that may be missing from a standard text-based conversation via a device.

The LiveText app has been tested in the Hong Kong, Taiwan and Ireland markets and is being released in the U.S., U.K., Canada, Germany and France.

LiveText is available for free in the App Store and Google Play Store and requires iOS 8.0 or later to install and run.

New Patents Hint at Apple Texture-simulating Uber...

For a company that said the only stylus we need is our finger, Apple sure has a lot of patents. It's patents describe what sounds like the ultimate stylus, complete with sensors and haptic feedback to simulate the feel of different textures.

The Mac Observer Spin: Apple has always been gernerally against styluses for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, but there are places where they make sense. Specialized uses like art and drafting, for example, are far easier with styluses than our finger tips. Maybe Apple is working on bringing us an Ãber stylus.

Apple Campus 2 to feature visitor’s centre,...

Silicon Valley Business Journal:

Apple has been criticized for the curvaceous project being closed off and suburban in its orientation (large earthen berms will block the public’s view of the campus from bordering streets). But the new public visitor’s center shows Apple is at least making a concession to the public’s great interest in the Spaceship.

The plans show a super-modern glass-walled structure topped by a carbon-fiber roof with extended eaves, punctuated by large skylights. On the ground floor: A 2,386-square-foot cafe and 10,114-square-foot store “which allows visitors to view and purchase the newest Apple products.” Stairs and elevators take visitors to the roof level, about 23 feet up. There, they’ll be able to behold the multi-billion-dollar campus.

There was never any doub that Apple would have some sort of area for the general public, similar to the present Employee Store. Whether it will be a full blown Apple Retail location where you can buy...

Amazon signs Top Gear’s Clarkson, Hammond, and May...

The Verge:

Former Top Gear presenters Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May have signed up for a new motoring show on Amazon Prime, set to air in 2016. The news ends months of speculation about the trio’s future on TV after the BBC refused to renew Clarkson’s contract following a “fracas” during filming this year. The deal is a major coup for Amazon’s streaming service, which lags behind rival Netflix, and although there are no details of how much the firm paid for the trio, a company insider told the London Evening Standard: “We have made a significant investment.”

It’s a three year deal and set for broadcast in 2016. Clarkson is a buffoon but there is no argument that the trio, even for non-car lovers, are a fun team to watch. I’m looking forward to seeing the new format and whether or not this version of the show is better or worse now that the boys will be free from the restraints of the BBC.

Review: Zipbuds Slide, average-sounding but super-...

I love music, so most of the time when I’m out and about I have headphones round my neck or in my bag. But there are times when I’m music’d out, and leave them at home – and I can then pretty much guarantee I’ll end up wishing I’d taken them with me.

Whether it’s to have a lengthy phone conversation while walking down the street, or watching the funny video a friend just posted on Facebook on the train (without subjecting everyone else to the audio), headphones aren’t just about music. For that reason, I’ve taken to chucking a few pairs of cheap-ish in-ear headphones in various bags and jacket pockets so that I always have some with me. In-ear ones can be squished into a small space so they take up almost no room.

The problem with that squishing, of course, is that whenever I do dig them...

Simple Counter is a great tally app for iPhone and...

This week's featured app grew out of the developer's love of board games:

"When I was playing board games with friends," Sweden's Arvid Lunnemark told me, "we usually resorted to using pen and paper to keep score. We all thought that there just had to be an app for this. We were right, but we continued to use pen and paper. Why? Because in the end, pen and paper was simpler to deal with than any of the apps [we found]. It frustrated me that pen and paper could trump an iPhone, and as a result, Simple Counter was born."

An app inspired by gaming. How could I pass on that?

Simple Counter ($1.99, universal) has found a place on my gaming table, but its usefulness extends well beyond game night. The fifteen-year-old developer has made a useful, no-look counter that can be used to tally just about anything. Here's my look at Simple Counter for iPhone.

Tom Brady switching from Samsung to an iPhone 6 now...

Earlier this week, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell upheld his original ruling that Patriots star Tom Brady will serve a four game suspension next season over the well-known “DeflateGate” controversy. Goodell cited Brady replacing his smartphone amid the investigation in his decision to uphold the suspension.

Responding to the NFL’s ruling in a Facebook post today, Brady stated that he simply switched phones because he wanted to upgrade from a Samsung device to an iPhone 6:

Motorola Promises Its Smartphones Will Love You Back


Motorola, on Tuesday launched three new handsets -- Moto X Style, Moto X Play and a refreshed Moto G -- designed to end the "one-sided relationships" between smartphones and consumers. People have been living with phones that nag during drives, make outbursts during meetings, and run out of juice just when they're most needed, the company said. Adding insult to injury, they are often mismatched with their owners' style and character. Motorola promised its newly introduced suitors will change all that.

Review: Zivix Jamstik+ MIDI Guitar Controller

Zivix's new Jamstik+ ($300) is a sequel to last year's Jamstik MIDI guitar, adding Bluetooth Smart connectivity and a refined experience with a new set of iOS apps.

Apple releases the third public beta of OS X 10.11...

Beta testers: to the App Store! Apple released an update to the El Capitan public beta today, the third version. If three is your lucky number, we’ve got instructions on how to sign up for the beta program, and a how-to on filing feedback when you encounter bugs. Once you’re enrolled, the new beta version is available in the Updates tab of the Mac App Store.

iOS 9 is also in public beta, but wasn’t updated today, as of this writing. Both iOS 9 and OS X 10.11 El Capitan are scheduled to launch in the fall, as free updates.

Opinion: How Apple News can improve so it doesn’t...

I’m not entirely sure why I’ve been rooting for iOS 9’s upcoming Apple News app to succeed. I’ve been a dedicated Reeder user since it debuted in the App Store, quickly dumped alternatives such as Flipboard and Pulse, and don’t need to change my daily news reading routine. But ever since Apple launched Newsstand in 2011, I’ve been waiting for a truly next-generation iOS news reading experience. Apple hasn’t just missed the boat on this; it actually sank the ship it launched, and lost a lot of talented sailors to rival companies that were developing digital book and magazine apps.

Having paid for Newsstand digital magazine subscriptions, I (like many people) was beyond disappointed when Apple abandoned Newsstand and the ...

Man shoots down drone hovering over his backyard

“It was just right there,” he told Ars. “It was hovering, I would never have shot it if it was flying. When he came down with a video camera right over my back deck, that’s not going to work. I know they’re neat little vehicles, but one of those uses shouldn’t be flying into people’s yards and videotaping.”

Some drone owners are morons. There was a case in California where firefighters were trying to get a blaze under control and people with drones prevented helicopters from getting into the air. Jesus people, use your common sense.

StubHub iOS app adds Uber and Apple Music integration

Podcast 467: Apple earnings, Apple Pay, and...

Apple makes a lot of money every quarter, but Wall Street is never satisfied—what's up with that? And will the iPad ever break out of its sales slump? And how many Apple Watches did Apple sell? And how great is Tim Cook at throwing shade?!?! Glenn and Susie tackle all these questions and more in our discussion of the most recent earnings call.

We also discuss mobile payments again, in the face of some maybe-sort-of-news about CurrentC. Best Buy and Apple seem to be getting tighter, event though their retail experiences couldn't be more different. But regardless, with Apple Pay's momentum and Square's reader, it's an interesting time for mobile payments.

Stayin' alive with iFixit and ERI

image via ifixit.org

Whenever a new product appears from Apple or most other major electronics manufacturers, one of the first things that iFixit does is to buy one of the devices and then tear it apart. They don’t do this for the sick thrill of it (well, maybe they do…), but for the purpose of creating detailed repair guides that any of us can use to fix our own devices. Now iFixit is teaming up with Electronic Recyclers International (ERI) to provide hard-to-find parts to keep your favorite Mac or iOS device alive.

ERI is the largest recycler of electronic waste in the world, handling over 250 million pounds of electronic gear every year. The equipment ranges from old, worn-out computers, digital cameras, smartphones, and tablets to items that — for one reason or another — were never even used.

Parts that iFixit sources from ERI will not only be tested, but...

Yahoo Livetext offers texting with video...without...

The mime community must feel validated today, because Yahoo has released a video texting app aimed right at them. Called Yahoo Livetext, it combines one-to-one texting with live video…without sound.

Basically, you’re sending each other text messages while also watching each other type and send those very text messages. So you can emote with your face while you type with your thumbs, as if you were on either side of a soundproof partition in jail, but the little phone you’re supposed to talk on wasn’t working, but you both had, say, iPod touches to text each other, but you couldn’t just Skype or FaceTime or Snapchat or Facebook Messenger or Hangout or Line or WeChat or whatever the kids are doing these days.

iPhone 6 vs OnePlus 2: Hands-on comparison [Video]

Today we’re comparing Apples to Oranges. Well not really, but instead Apple’s iPhone 6 to OnePlus’s new flagship killer on the block. Question is, does the OnePlus 2 bring enough to the table in order to take on one of the most popular smartphones on the planet?

Apple’s iPhone 6 may be nearly one year old, but that doesn’t mean anything in terms of performance with iOS. On the Android side of things, the OnePlus 2 features a Snapdragon 810 processor and 4GB of RAM, which makes the iPhone’s dual-core processor and 1GB seem kiddish, but both devices perform with ease.

We have two very different smartphone designs. Apple’s iPhone 6 is made up from all aluminum with a seamless metal and glass design, but like the OnePlus 2 there’s no...

Hack: User pulls off ROM hack, runs Mac OS 6.0.1 on...

This is one of the cooler old-school projects out there.

And it seems to have worked.

Apparently, Reddit and imgur user “wowbobwow” was able to get Mac OS 6.0.1 running on an Amiga 500 computer. This was achieved by using an emulator called “A-Max” that allowed Mac ROM chips to be run on the Amiga.

Once this was done, the Amiga was able to execute the Mac code on the computer’s Motorola 68000 processor, which was the same processor shared by the Macs and Amigas of that era.

This doesn’t change the earth or find your car keys, but it is a really cool proof of concept for those of us who remember life under Mac OS 6.0.1 and the...

iPad appears to be a leaky lifeboat from the sinking...

IDC provided data today showing that although Apple's iPad continues to be the market share leader in the tablet market, its share has dropped markedly over the past year and the overall market for tablets is declining. 

This year, Apple shipped 10.9 million iPads in the second quarter (ending June 30), while the number for 2014 was 13.3 million units. That's a decline of 18 percent in one year. Apple's share of the overall tablet space dropped from 27.7 percent in 2014 to 24.5 percent this year. 

Apple's not the only company seeing a drop. Rival Samsung fell from 8.6 million units in 2014 to 7.6 million units this year, with a marketshare drop of one point down to 17% in 2015. So who is gaining share? Lenovo, Huawei and LG Electronics are all seeing growth year over year. Part of the growth might be in the 2-in-1 tablet ("touchscreen laptop") market, which is included in IDC's...

Intel and Micron announced 3D XPoint memory on Tuesday. The project looks into a joint endeavor into non-volatile memory technology the companies claim is the first major breakthrough in the space since the introduction of NAND flash in 1989.

3D XPoint is said to be up to 1,000 times faster than NAND with up to 1,000 times greater endurance, while packing in 10 times the density of conventional DRAM components.

The technology works as a stackable, transistor-less “three-dimensional checkerboard” architecture in which memory cells can be...

Photoshop CS6 Stragglers Out of Luck for Camera Raw...

It's no secret that Adobe left its Creative Suite 6 apps behind when it moved to Creative Cloud and annual software licenses, and if you've been holding out hope for extended support for the old versions of Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign, get ready for the bad news. Adobe says Camera Raw 9.1.1 will be the last version released that still offers Photoshop CS6 support. For people using Adobe's apps professionally, this is another reminder that Creative Suite 6 is now a relic and it's time to let it go.

The Mac Observer Spin: Dropping Camera Raw updates for Photoshop CS6 is yet another sign from Adobe they really want everyone to move to Creative Cloud. The fact that they offered CS6 ACR updates for this long is pretty amazing.
