GigSky Is Apple SIM For Everyone

Included with the announcement of new iPads yesterday we saw Apple SIM, a multi-carrier-capable SIM card baked into the cellular models of the new devices allowing customer choice of data carriers. There are some limits, of course, mostly that carrier partners thus far only include three US carriers: AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile. If you want to use overseas data partners or don't have a new iPad, well, you're out of luck with Apple SIM. GigSky, however, has been allowing this functionality for almost two years, providing a multi-carrier data SIM usable in over 100 different countries, included here in the USA. You simply launch their iOS app and buy whatever data you need right inside the app. In many countries your GigSky SIM will get you 10MB of free data, enough to get a quick glance at your email and, if necessary, buy more data. No more getting off the plane and having to hunt down a SIM. Just head straight to your hotel room and GigSky has you covered. GigSky SIMs cost just...

Apple’s New iPad Air 2 Available for Online Order

Apple promised the iPad Air 2 would be available for purchase on Friday after unveiling it at a special media event yesterday. The company kept its word and added the new tablet model to its store late Friday morning.

The Mac Observer Spin: You can buy a brand new iPad Air 2 now, but without a firm release date we won't see long lines outside Apple's retail stores like we have with previous iPhone and iPad launches.

The last time we reviewed an APC USB battery pack was all the way back in 2007 — the $70 UPB10, which was capable of recharging the first-generation iPhone twice, and came with a wall adapter for recharging. Today, the company is offering a sleeker 5000mAh version called M5BK ($40) and the 10,000mAh model M10BK ($60), both substantially redesigned and shipped solely with micro-USB recharging cables.

Apple Drops Mac mini Server from Product Lineup

Goodbye, Mac mini server. Apple quietly discontinued the server-ready version of the Mac mini on Thursday as it rolled out updates for its other Mac mini models.

The Mac Observer Spin: The end of the server package isn't a big deal considering you can now buy a new Mac mini for even less and install the server software package through the Mac App Store.

Twitpic to Shut Down on Oct 25 After Failed Buyout...

Twitpic, the Twitter-based online photo sharing service, will be shutting down on October 25 following a failed move to find a buyer for the company. Twitpic chose to close its business after the social network service Twitter threatened legal action over what it saw as a trademark violation in the company's name.

The Mac Observer Spin: It's sad to see a company like Twitpic go, and it would've been nice if they'd chosen an option that didn't involve shutting down their business to resolve the trademark issue.

Apple Posts ‘The Evolution of Retina’ Video

Apple posted the 30 second spot called "iMac with Retina 5K display - The Evolution of Retina" to YouTube Thursday. Like the other videos released today, this one was unveiled during the company's "It's Been Too Long" media event. The spot starts with the original iPhone 4with Retina display, and flips through subsequent generations of iPhones, iPads, and Macs to feature a Retina display, each showing a little bit more of the same high-resolution video than the one before it. It's a very clever illustration of just how much bigger Apple's iMac with Retina 5K display is than everything else around.

It's pretty clear that Apple's HealthKit is going to reset the bar for success in this space, and Fitbit will lose its hard-won share if it doesn't jump on Apple's late-to-the-party bandwagon.

HBO Go Will Go It Alone

HBO Go might just go it alone, according to CEO Richard Plepler, who made the remarks at Time Warner's investor day event on Wednesday. "In 2015, we will launch a standalone, over-the-top HBO service in the United States. We will work with our current partners. And we will explore models with new partners. All in, there are 80 million homes that do not have HBO and we will use all means at our disposal to go after them," Pleper said.

There are rumblings that Netflix will be reporting some nice earnings, which is probably excellent motivation for HBO to go after the cordcutting crowd. This is very exciting news for me personally, because I've been calling HBO customer service about once a month for like a year now and BEGGING them to let me pay directly instead of having to give more money to the Cable Service Which Must Not Be Named. It doesn't take long, but it looks like I'm going to get my way on this.

Poodle SSL 3.0 Flaw Poses Web Browser Security Threat

Google has discovered a 15 year old flaw in SSL 3.0, a security protocol that turns out isn't quite a s secure as originally thought, that could let remote attackers highjack Web browser sessions and gain access to personal data, like Web-based email. The flaw takes advantage of a browser's ability to fall back from the more secure TLS protocol to SSL where attackers can then gain access to session cookies on victim's computers.

News: Apple dropping Fitbit from retail stores?

Apple is planning to stop selling Fitbit fitness products in its stores, according to a new report from Re/code.

News: U2’s Bono apologizes for automatic iTunes...

A recent U2 interview posted on Facebook saw the band members taking questions from fans, and one of the questions concerned the automatic free download of U2's Songs of Innocence album to iTunes playlists: "Can you please never release an album on iTunes that automatically downloads to peoples [sic] playlists ever again? It's really rude." The album was accessible for free to 500 million iTunes customers; early estimates claimed 33 million users…

GT Advanced COO Sold Stock After Missed Apple...

GT Advanced Technologies COO Daniel Squiller sold off US$1.2 million in company stock in May and put a plan in place to sell an additional $750,000 over the following months leading up to the company's October bankruptcy filing. The timing of the sales came after GTAT failed to meet milestone points in its sapphire glass production for Apple, and could raise some eyebrows because company CEO Tom Gutierrez was selling off his stock, too, including 9,000 shares the day before the iPhone 6 was introduced.

The Mac Observer Spin: Coincidence or not, Mr. Squiller's stock sale could be seen as a problem because he was very much in a position to know that GTAT's deal with Apple was going south.

A record of 10 million iPhones sold in the opening weekend is reportedly on the cusp of being trumped by an additional 20 million pre-orders for China alone. According to the Wall Street Journal, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus demand has so outstripped supply that Apple postponed a brand new iPad’s…

Apple Adds Egg Freezing to Women’s Job Benefits

The Mac Observer Spin: Good on Apple for its part to help bring fair and equal reproductive coverage to the workplace.

Dropbox: We Weren’t Hacked, Your Password Wasn’t...

Following reports that Dropbox had been hacked and user logins were stolen, the online storage service has said that's not so and instead the user names and passwords were taken from other sites. Several hundred logins appeared on Reddit with the claim that the hackers have user names and passwords for more than 7 million accounts and the promise more will be released in exchange for Bitcoin payments.

The Mac Observer Spin: The possibility of stolen account logins really sucks, but in this case there's a chance that it's the hackers who are getting scammed. There's a little bit of delicious irony in that. Still, don't use the same password on more than one site.

Charge Your Phone by Walking with Ampy Kickstarter

Yeah, this is frakking cool. It's a Kickstarter project for Ampy, a portable charger for iPhone (or anything that powers from USB) that you charge by walking around. Ampy turns kinetic energy into electrical energy and stores it in an internal battery. According to the Kickstarter description, 10,000 steps is enough to generate three hours of battery life on your smartphone. 30-60 minutes on a bicycle will do the same thing. Strap it on your working dog? Who knows, but the idea of an iPhone powered by dog awesomeness brings a huge smile to my face. Oh, and Ampy can also be charged by plugging it into a wall socket. With 28 days to go, the developers have already raised $128,000 with an original goal of $100,000, but there are still ways to get a discounted Ampy and support the company's efforts.

I'm an LED bulb nut. Some of them last for decades, they produce less waste heat, and they use a fraction of the power of a comparable incandescent bulb (less even than CFC bulbs). Then there are LED bulbs that allow you to change their hue, and that's what we have for today's deal. The ilumi LED Smartbulb is controlled from your iPhone or Android device (with Bluetooth 4.0). It can pulse with music, has a wakeup schedule, and a vacation mode to make your home look occupied. It lasts up to 20 years, uses between 1 and 13 watts with light equivalent up to 60-75 watt incandescents, is dimmable, and is color tunable. It's regularly priced at $90, but through our deal you can get it for $79. The deal ends in one day.

Walgreens Memo Claims Saturday Apple Pay Launch

iOS 8's mobile payment system Apple Pay could get its official launch on October 18, only two days after a media event where Apple is expected to introduce new iPad models. The hint at the potential launch date comes from an internal Walgreens memo pointing out the weekend start.

The Mac Observer Spin: Apple said Apple Pay would be coming in October, so it's just a matter of waiting for the official launch announcement. With a media event happening this Thursday, it's possible we're only days away from the rollout.

Flight Attendants Sue to Stop Gate-to-gate...

Attorneys representing the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA argued in the U.S. Court of Appeals late last week that the ban on in-flight electronics the FAA lifted a year ago should be reinstated for the safety of airline passengers. The Flight Attendants union thinks portable electronics use during takeoff and landing poses a serious risk and that the FAA made a mistake when it opened the doors for airlines to allow their use from gate to gate.

The Mac Observer Spin: Unless flight attendants can come up with compelling evidence to show gate-to-gate electronics use is a serious safety risk, you'll most likely be able to keep playing Angry Birds on your flights. And with the ban lift nearly a year behind us, passengers wouldn't take going back to stowing their electronics very well at all.

Alleged components of Apple’s upcoming second-generation iPad Air were recently posted on Apple.club.tw, with a logic board that shows an A8X chip. While the iPad Air used the same A7 chip found in the iPhone 5s, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus contain an A8 chip, so it appears Apple will be once again making a separate processor for the iPad. The report also claims that iPad Air 2 will pack 2GB of RAM, as has been rumored. In addition to the…
