Buyer beware: What you’re actually getting at outlet...

Racked:

Neiman, Nordstrom, Bloomingdale’s, Barneys New York, and Saks Fifth Avenue all have their own outlets; customers flock to these stores for the brand-name cachet and believe they’re shopping last season’s carefully curated inventory. However, this isn’t exactly the case.

Nordstrom Rack, for example, confirms to Racked that only 20% of what it sells is clearance merchandise coming from their stores and website, while the rest is bought expressly for the outlet.

I’ve gone to dozens of outlet stores and malls, sometimes involuntarily, and I’ve always thought they were a little bit fishy. Turns out, many are.

Note to Self: It’s the Storage Space, Stupid

Last night I speculated that the slow uptake of iOS 8 was about people not trusting Apple with iOS software updates — too many bugs, and too many friends and family members talking about those bugs. I still think there’s something to that angle.

But it’s very clear that I was wrong about what the primary factor is. The simple answer was staring me right in the face. It’s all about the over-the-air update requiring 5 GB of free storage space, and many people not having that much free space, and not knowing how or simply not wanting to deal with it.

I don’t think I have ever received so much reader feedback on a post in the history of Daring Fireball. Hundreds of emails. Dozens and dozens of replies on Twitter. All of them saying the exact same thing: that either they themselves or people they know want to...

HTC announces $199 GoPro-like camera accessory ‘RE’...

Just as we expected it to, HTC has just announced the RE camera during its Double Exposure event in New York City. The RE camera is a GoPro-like camera that records point of view video, but does not have any sort of viewfinder, which HTC says makes it incredibly easy and simple to use.

The design of the RE camera is also simple, and while it does resemble an inhaler, it has only two buttons. One of the buttons allows you to tap and instantly capture 16MP photos or long press to record 1080p video. The other button allows you to take slow motion video in HD quality.

To make up for the lack of a viewfinder,...

King of click: the story of the greatest keyboard...

The Verge:

The first thing you notice about the IBM Model M keyboard, when you finally get your hands on it, is its size. After years of tapping chiclet keys and glass screens on two- and three-pound devices, hefting five pounds of plastic and metal (including a thick steel plate) is slightly intimidating. The second thing is the sound – the solid click that’s turned a standard-issue beige peripheral into one of the computer world’s most prized and useful antiques.

I used this keyboard so much in college, I can still hear that sound and feel that key pressure. Great keyboard.

The physically and mentally exhausting nature of the Oktoberfest fortnight requires trust that’s cultivated in familiarity. Each server needs to know she can lean on her fellow team members when she’s endured so many boob ogles, grabby hands, and sawdust-covered blobs on the floor. Worming your way through 10,000 sweaty, beer-swilling revelers 12 hours a day for 16 days straight tests the limits of even the most crowd-loving extrovert.

LearnToMod Offers Minecraft Customization

World-building games like Minecraft are very popular, and for some people the real fun is in the "mods," getting to add things like the local weather or turning everything into candy. If that's the part of Minecraft you like, there's now a way to build your own. LearnToMod is a project from ThoughtSTEM, a computer science education organization. There are two options: you can learn using Javascript, or by using "blocks", an easy way to learn concepts without worrying about syntax errors. For a pre-order price of $30, you get three months of access to a server, and a lifetime rate of $10 monthly for continued access. Also included are video tutorials and a browser-based coding environment, so getting started requires nothing more than a copy of Minecraft. Their pre-order is going through the end of the year.

Apple Calls GTAT Bankruptcy Decision ‘Surprising’

The firm filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on Monday, October 8th, and Apple's statement characterized the move as "surprising."

"Theorists have proposed that Majorana can emerge at the edge of some superconductors as quasi-particles, and manipulating them can be used to test their properties as well as building interesting quantum systems that could be useful," Yazdani said. That could further help advance quantum computing, as the Majorana fermion can be used as a qubit, or quantum bit.

Apple Pay is one of the biggest features expected to launch with iOS 8.1 later this month.

Last week, numerous publications (including Ars) reported seeing references to iOS 8.1, 8.2, and 8.3 in their site analytics pages. iOS versions 5, 6, and 7 only saw one major point update apiece during their respective lifespans, so evidence of three different updates being tested simultaneously just weeks after the release of iOS 8.0 came as a surprise.

It looks like we'll be seeing the first of those updates sooner rather than later. Today Apple pushed out the second beta build of iOS 8.1 in as many weeks to its registered developers, and the final version of the software is...

There’s a new disappearing message app in an already crowded market, but this one isn’t from a Snapchat-like startup. Yovo has some of the same features—namely the self-destructing photos—but unlike its
rival, the new iOS app’s roots are in serious DRM tech.

Yovo is shorthand for “you only view once,” but the app is a bit more flexible than that. You can set a timer that lets your recipients see your message
for up to 24 hours. You might be wondering: What about screenshots? That’s where Yovo’s parent company, ContentGuard, has some experience. ContentGuard
spun off from the Palo Alto research center Xerox PARC, working on DRM tech to protect user-generated content. For Yovo, ContentGuard came up with a way to
scramble your photo when someone tries to take a screen capture.

Vietnamese blog leaks iPad Air 2 pictures showing...





Vietnamese blog Tinhte.vn has pictures claiming to be the new iPad Air. Shown in white, the device is reportedley only 7 mm thin. This is the same depth as Apple’s latest iPhones, which measure 6.9 mm and 7.1 mm thin. As such, it also features the same recessed volume button style as the iPhone 6.

The leaks show the next generation iPad to be mostly identical to the current iPad Air, but with some notable changes....

DEA Lifts Woman's Identity, Creates Fake...


The United States Drug Enforcement Agency reportedly co-opted a woman's identity to create a fake Facebook page as a ruse to investigate suspects. The agency posted racy pictures of the woman, then known as "Sondra Prince," as well as a photo of her young son and niece, to the sham page. The photos were taken from her cellphone, which the agency had seized. Prince had been arrested on charges of participating in a drug ring but was given probation as a bit player. DEA Special Agent Timothy Sinnigen reportedly created the Web page.

Why Apple’s iPhone encryption is a godsend, even if...

Thoughtful editorial from Wired. The upshot:

However it got there, Apple has come to the right place. It’s a basic axiom of information security that “data at rest” should be encrypted. Apple should be lauded for reaching that state with the iPhone. Google should be praised for announcing it will follow suit in a future Android release.

Also worth reading, this essay from Salon, entitled America’s huge iPhone lie: Why Apple is being accused of coddling child molesters.

Tanks for everything: World of Tanks Blitz's...

When World of Tanks debuted as a PC game a few years back, it seemed like it would be the kind of ultra-niche hardcore simulation that appealed primarily to die-hards with specialized controllers—and loads of time to spend mastering its nuances. But there was an unexpected twist: It was free to download and play, which was still a relatively new concept, particularly in the hardcore PC space.

Instead of courting a small but vocal fan base, it exploded in popularity due to its accessible business model and game design, making it possible to play a few rounds and have fun without feeling overwhelmed or outgunned—or dig in and really savor the depth of its strategic action. Early this year, developer Wargaming reported having more than 75 million registered users on PC alone, with an Xbox 360 version launching in February to expand its reach further.

Charge it up!

Just for fun: Show us your best QuickType poetry

Who knew predictive text could see into your soul? If the new QuickType keyboard had been around when I was in middle school, my output of moody, tortured, nonsensical poetry would have been…OK, only slighty greater than it already was. But with less forced iambic pentameter.

Yes, Apple’s new keyboard in iOS 8, aka QuickType, attempts to guess what you’re typing not just as you tap out letters, but even before. Depending on the context and the words you tend to use (and overuse), sometimes it’s uncannily good at guessing what you’re about to say next. Other times it’s just funny. And if you eschew typing altogether and just pick from the three suggested words to string together sentences—that came from inside the iPhone!—the results can be pretty darn great.

With mobile payments steadily on the popularity uptick, apps that specialize in direct money transfers between friends are fighting to be the one you turn to first.

Square Cash finds people within 250 feet of you and lets you send them money from its main screen just by tapping on the profile name.

Square is keeping its competitive edge—the company rolled out an update to its app Cash on Tuesday, introducing a new feature that connects Cash users via Bluetooth. Dubbed “Nearby Payments,” the app finds other users nearby, allowing you to send or request payments more easily than before.

Review: Patriot Supersonic Phoenix USB 3.0 drive

USB thumb drives aren't the end all solutions for data transfer and traveling needs. Sometimes people want something with a little more to them, opting for larger external drives that offer greater capacities, and in some cases faster transfer speeds. One example of a bigger, faster drive is the Patriot Supersonic Phoenix. The drive is offered in a pocket-sized format that is more like a portable hard drive than a USB flash drive. But would the Supersonic Phoenix be something that consumers flock to with its SSD-like features, or should the opt for the smaller thumb drive? Find out in our revi...

KGI has published a new report clarifying that the recent announcement that Apple’s sapphire supplier had filed for bankruptcy will likely have no impact on the production of the comapny’s sapphire display-equipped wearable. According to KGI, GT was mainly contracted to create the sapphire crystal displays for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.

The reason Apple partnered with GT Advanced on the iPhone displays was related to the size of the screens. Because GT was the best equipped to manufacture a display the size of the new iPhone models. However, because the Apple Watch uses a smaller display, other...

Early tomorrow morning, the moon will pass behind the center of Earth’s shadow and turn a rusty red color. Most people probably won’t be able to see this total lunar eclipse, because it will occur mainly over the Pacific Ocean. But don’t worry. You can watch a live broadcast by the Slooh Community Observatory from multiple locations in Australia and North America or NASA’s broadcast of the event.

Always fun to watch these celestial events.

Simon & Schuster released Walter Isaacson's new book The Innovators on Tuesday. This book builds on the research begun for his killer biography Steve Jobs, but takes a much broader look at the many innovator who took part in the creation of "tech" as we know it today. He begins with Ada Lovelace, Lord Byronâs daughter, who pioneered computer programming in the 1840s. Which, come on, is cool. The book also looks at folks such as Vannevar Bush, Alan Turing, John von Neumann, J.C.R. Licklider, Doug Engelbart, Robert Noyce, Bill Gates, Steve Wozniak, Steve Jobs, Tim Berners-Lee, and Larry Page. From the publisher: "This is the story of how their minds worked and what made them so inventive. Itâs also a narrative of how their ability to collaborate and master the art of teamwork made them even more creative." You can buy it on iBooks for US$8.99. Amazon has the hard back for $21.81 and the Kindle version for $8.49.
