Lollipop's Encryption Takes a Hefty Toll


The new full-disk encryption feature that's enabled by default in Android 5.0 Lollipop comes at a hefty price in terms of performance, according to a recent benchmark report.
In fact, when full-disk encryption is enabled, random read performance drops by 62.9 percent, while random write performance falls by 50.5 percent, AnandTech reported late last week. Sequential read performance, meanwhile, drops by a whopping 80.7 percent. The bottom line is "serious negative implications for device performance in any situation where applications are reading or writing to disk," the report concludes.

iCloud reportedly held back by ‘deep organizational...

The Information has published a report that claims “deep organizational issues” within Apple are holding up iCloud development and complicating products. The cloud-based service, which helps keep data in sync between iPhones, iPads, iPods and Macs, reportedly lacks from a centralized iCloud team at the Cupertino-based company.

Apple co-founder Steve Jobs was particularly keen on the idea of iCloud, a platform that he introduced shortly before his death in late 2011. Jobs had a particular interest in keeping photos, one of the most highly shared forms of media, in sync between devices. Yet, over three years later, Apple has not reached the full potential it envisioned with iCloud.

For an example of this, one must look no further than iCloud Photo...

Earlier this month, Apple reached its highest market capitalization in history reaching two-thirds of $1 trillion; the company’s stock has continued to climb as it prepares to debut the Apple Watch next spring and enters the holiday quarter.

We normally don't review any shell-style cases — usually simple, cheap plastic cases that provide no button coverage and offer virtually no protection — but we've made an exception for Kerf Case's Wood Cases ($69-$149) for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Handsome cases that come in a number of materials for either of Apple's newer iPhones, Kerf Cases give users the opportunity to get an attractive wooden case at a lower price than some competitors, while sacrificing protection. We received cork ($69) and spalted maple cases ($99) for iPhone 6, and a black walnut case ($99) for iPhone 6 Plus — other than the cork, different cases might cost more or less than what we've reviewed based on the wood used.{/exp:char_limit}

Using a public restroom hand dryer? You may be...

Washington Post:

Researchers coated subjects’ hands with Lactobacillus, a harmless bacteria that you don’t typically come across in a public bathroom. The idea was to mimic hands that hadn’t been washed properly. After drying hands, researchers went in and conducted 120 air-sampling tests. They found that Lactobacillus counts in the air were 4½ times higher near high-powered jet dryers than around warm-air dryers. And bacteria counts were 27 times higher near warm-air dryers than when subjects used paper towels.

Ok, that’s it. I’m simply not going to use public washrooms any more.

Review: Urban Armor Gear Folio for iPhone 6 Plus

Urban Armor Gear's Folio ($40) case for iPhone 6 Plus comes in two colors, red and black, which are sold as two separate models called Rogue Folio and Scout Folio. Unlike most wallet folio-style cases, UAG's Folio offers a hefty amount of protection — the case meets military drop test standards. UAG's Folio also offers button coverage, and a significant lip on the case provides screen protection even when the folio's cover is off. Inside the folio cover is a slot that can hold three credit cards. The folio cover uses a magnetic strip to remain closed, which works well. Though we only reviewed the iPhone 6 Plus version of the case, it's worth noting the Folio is also available for iPhone 6 at the same price.{/exp:char_limit}

All William Gibson’s futures

Medium:

Cyberspace may be ancient history for Gibson, but how our future unrolls before us has once again captured his attention. After sticking fairly close to the present for his last half-dozen novels, The Peripheral is Gibson’s most wide open and far-ranging adventure in decades. Multiple futures, near and far, collide. Characters zip back and forth in time, conspiracy theories come true, and an apocalypse unfolds in slow motion, with all the inexorability of a slowly rising tide.

I’ve been a hug fan of Gibson’s since I first read Neuromancer as a kid. It’s is still the first and only book that blew my mind so much that, when I read in pretty much one sitting, I immediately turned back to page one and started reading it again.

And those who saw still photographs of the catch might have wondered, how did the photographer capture that?

Relatively few iPad Air 2 cases have hit the market early in the device's lifespan, as companies likely had a short time to adjust to the design changes in Apple's thinner full-sized iPad. Griffin has released a few options, though, including the Slim Folio ($30) and Survivor All-Terrain ($80). Slim Folio is a very thin fabric case that actually fits both the iPad Air 2 and original iPad Air — it has holes for the camera and microphone locations on both devices. Survivor All-Terrain is a beefy rubber-and-plastic case solely for iPad Air 2, similar to the other products in Griffin's Survivor line. The case offers complete button coverage, as well as screen and port protection. A multi-layer case, Survivor All-Terrain is weather-resistant and military spec-tested to be safe from two-meter drops onto concrete. The case also comes with a detachable stand.{/exp:char_limit}

A View of the Future: Demo 2014


I attended Demo in Silicon Valley last week and, as always, it showcased things likely to mature in the market 12 to 14 months into the future. The presenters are small companies, hand-selected because they offer something unique and forward-looking. You have to feel a bit sorry for the folks doing the demonstrations, because they have one shot to do this right, and often the god of technology exhibits his or her sense of humor and something doesn't work.

Apple To Donate Profit Portion From Black Friday For...

An anonymous reader writes Apple will donate a portion of their sales from online and retail stores on Cyber Monday and Black Friday as a contribution to the worldwide fight against AIDS. Apple kicks off a two-week fundraising campaign for RED, the charity started by U2 lead singer Bono and Bobby Shriver. It includes 25 partnering app-makers, from Angry Birds to Toca Boca, which will donate all proceeds from purchases of their apps or in-app upgrades. In a statement, Apple CEO Tim Cook said: "Apple is a proud supporter of (RED) because we believe the gift of life is the most important gift anyone can give. For eight years, our customers have been helping fight AIDS in Africa by funding life-saving treatments which are having a profoundly positive impact. This year we are launching our biggest fundraising push yet with the participation of Apple's retail and online stores, and some of the brightest minds in the App Store are lending their talents to the effort as well."

To mark the upcoming World AIDS Day on December 1st, Apple has launched a trio of initiatives. On the 1st itself, Apple says it will donate "a portion" of sales at its online and retail stores to the Global Fund, which is mainly dedicated to combating AIDS but also tackles diseases such as malaria and tuberculosis. On November 28th, some product purchases will include a Product (RED) iTunes gift card; any purchases made with it will go to the Fund. From today through December 7th, a program called Apps for (RED) will donate the sales from 24 iOS apps -- in some cases, special in-app purchases...

WALTR developers discover A8 processor in iPhone 6,...

There’s a lot to be said for the A8 processor in the current iPhone 6 and 6 Plus handsets.

According to MacRumors and the developers of the WALTR music app, the dual-core A8 chip powering Apple’s iPhone 6 and 6 Plus appears to be capable of handling 4K video playback, despite the fact that the two iPhones have native resolutions of 1334 x 750 and 1920 x 1080 pixels, respectively.

4K video playback on the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus was first discovered by the developers behind WALTR, a Mac app that’s designed to make it easy to upload and convert any music or video file to an iPad or iPhone for native playback.

The discovery was made by the developers of WALTR, a Mac app that allows users to quickly upload video files to their iPhone which aren’t supported by iTunes, such as FLAC and MKV files....

Ad Age reports that Chase is running its first TV ad for Apple Pay, focusing on use in small businesses, and featuring Fun lead guitarist Jack Antonoff’s side indie band Bleachers.

The ad, out of creative agency Saatchi & Saatchi, features members of indie pop band Bleachers roaming Los Angeles in the hours leading up to a performance. The musicians make purchases along the way using their Chase Freedom credits cards — but through Apple Pay on their iPhones, not the physical cards.

According to the latest data from Fiksu, the launch of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus alongside iOS 8 accounted for a massive increase and an all-time high for app downloads. Specifically, the report points to a 42 percent increase from the previous month among the top 200 free iOS apps tracked by the company. Around 7.8 million downloads for the top 200 free apps accounted for a 42 percent increase over September and a 39 percent increase year-over-year.

“While recent indexes have shown a steady stream of escalating costs, the October index numbers validate another important trend: the increasing importance of apps to consumers,” said Micah Adler, CEO of Fiksu. “Mobile marketers must start thinking strategically about their marketing tactics over the...

Of the six speech-recognition systems tested by researchers, Siri was found to be the worst for driver distraction. The study hooked up drivers to heart-rate monitors and other equipment designed to measure the degree of stress experienced by drivers while carrying out a range of voice-command tasks, giving each system a distraction rating from 1 (best) to 5 (worst) …

Last week I met up with the people behind Pinć (Pinch), an under development VR headset that utilizes Minority Report-style user interfaces opposed to the mostly gaming experiences we’ve seen thus far from the competition. There are also a few other big differentiators for Pinc: it doubles as an iPhone case, uses hand gestures tracked by the iPhone’s camera for input, and includes a full SDK for developers built on Unity.

Pinć utilizes a wireless ring (or pinchers) on each hand that allow users to navigate with touchscreen-like hand gestures when tracked by the device’s camera. The experience allows for a much more intuitive controls familiar to touchscreen users and seems to make a lot more sense for immersive virtual reality than a controller or...

If you are planning on purchasing a new iPhone at Virgin Mobile this holiday shopping season, you are all but out of luck. While it somehow still sells the over three-year-old iPhone 4s, the prepaid carrier has not added the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus to its smartphone lineup and lists last year’s iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c models as out of stock.

Virgin Mobile claims that both the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c are “temporarily out of stock,” although neither smartphone has been available through its website for quite some time. Meanwhile, Sprint sister company Boost Mobile carries the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c and iPhone 4s with no...
