Spotify penalizing musicians with Apple Music...

Spotify has been retaliating against musicians who introduce new material exclusively on rival Apple Music by making their songs harder to find, according to people familiar with the strategy. Artists who have given Apple exclusive access to new music have been told they won’t be able to get their tracks on featured playlists once the songs become available on Spotify, said the people, who declined to be identified discussing the steps. Those artists have also found their songs buried in the search rankings of Spotify, the world’s largest music-streaming service, the people said. Spotify said it doesn’t alter search rankings.

I hate that musicians are the ones caught in the middle of this Apple, Spotify fight, but you had to see something was going to happen. Apple is targeting Spotify, and they are fighting back.

Apple Speeds iOS Patch to Bring Down Pegasus


Apple on Thursday issued a patch that addresses three recently discovered critical iOS zero-day vulnerabilities, and advised users to update their systems immediately. State-sponsored actors exploited the flaws to target United Arab Emirates human rights defender Ahmed Mansoor, and a Mexican journalist who reported on government corruption. Researchers at the University of Toronto's Citizen Lab and security firm Lookout discovered the vulnerabilities, which they dubbed "Trident," after investigating suspicious text messages sent to Mansoor.

Twitter will soon let you use keyword filters to...

Online harassment on Twitter has gotten so bad that some users opt to never read their mentions, while others are driven to log off the platform forever.

Now, Twitter is addressing the problem with a new anti-harassment tool, according to Bloomberg. Twitter is developing a feature that would allow users to filter out certain keywords from their timeline and mentions. This anti-harassment feature, which has been in the works for about a year, will give users the power to block certain offensive words and slurs.

This new tool is Twitter’s latest attempt to curb online harassment on its platform. Previously, Twitter made it easier for people to report a string of offensive Tweets, but this feature is the most control the company has ever given its users in the fight against harassment. In addition, the tool could expand to become a general...

Review: DODOcase Leather iPhone Card Case

Card cases that turn your iPhone into a wallet capable of carrying a driver's license and a couple of credit cards are nothing new, but it's always newsworthy when a noted accessory manufacturer comes out with one. In this case, the accessory manufacturer is DODOcase, the San Francisco-based maker of an huge array of iPhone and iPad cases that utilize the company's expertise in bookbinding techniques. 

That's where the new DODOcase Leather iPhone Card Case ($34.99 for iPhone 5/5s/SE/6/6s, $39.99 for iPhone 6/6s Plus) is a bit different from the rest of the DODOcase line. Rather than being a showcase of the bookbinder's skill like most of the DODOcase products (the new Customizer being the perfect example of this), the Leather iPhone Card Case uses a rather generic...

Artists who make exclusive deals for Apple Music (even limited time ones) are supposedly being made harder to find on Spotify's platform and are less likely to be included in featured playlists once they become available after the Apple Music exclusivity ends.

The practice has reportedly been ongoing for around a year with tracks by Tidal-exclusive artists seeing similar unfavorable consideration. Competition is ramping up between the services. Spotify claims to have 30 million subscribers, and Apple Music claims to have 15 million users.

Every day, multiple times a day, I have to swipe a paper Metrocard to get on the New York City subway. Each time I swipe—and occasionally when I don’t nail the swipe and get the dreaded “please swipe again” error message—I curse everyone involved for not making the process more technologically advanced.

Apple is reportedly working on a way to let you pay for mass transit with your iPhone, sort of like Apple Pay for the subway. Of course, it’s not starting in New York—the city first has to adopt Near Field Communication technology in its transit payment terminals, which reportedly isn’t happening until 2018. According to Bloomberg, Apple may build a FeliCa chip into Japanese iPhones so users can simply wave their phones in front of a payment terminal to access public transit. The transaction speed is key here, because transit cards need to work...

Review: Western Digital My Cloud (OS 3)

Despite the popularity of cloud storage services like iCloud, Dropbox, and Google Drive, increasing security and privacy concerns are fueling a desire by many users to keep their important data completely under their own control, rather than trusting it to another company's cloud. Although storing data on your computer or external hard drive at your home or office can certainly make you feel more secure about where you're keeping your data, in an era of iPhones and iPads, that often creates a tradeoff between having access to your important data while on the go and trusting it to a third-party cloud provider. Western Digital's My Cloud ($150-$380) attempts to bridge this gap, providing the best of both worlds in the form of an external network attached storage (NAS) device that keeps all of your data locally stored under your own control, while providing remote access through the company's web portal and companion iOS app. While My Cloud has been around for a while as...

From the just-released report by China Labor Watch:

Pegatron is one of Apple’s major suppliers, employing almost one hundred thousand workers3 in Mainland China. Working conditions are terrible, and workers are subject to terrible treatment. Currently, Apple’s profits are declining, and the effects of this decline have been passed on to suppliers. To mitigate the impact, Pegatron has taken some covert measures to exploit workers. This report is based on interviews with Pegatron workers and a comparative study of 2015 copies of paystubs collected in 2015 and 2016. Through our investigation, we have found that Pegatron has taken some surreptitious measures to pass Apple’s audits. In addition, we discovered that Pegatron’s working conditions have worsened in 2016 compared to 2015.

And:

Excessive and illegal overtime work is still prevalent in Pegatron. Pegatron claimed that their ID check system could effectively control workers’ overtime hours, but this system...

I fell in love with this hollowbody 12-string because of the neck, and the first thing I did was I took six strings off, because it was a 12-string, and I didn’t want 12! They didn’t have what I wanted in the store, so it had already started there!

And:

I saved the money from delivering papers for two and a half to three years, and bought my first real guitar, which was a ’68 Goldtop Les Paul with single-coil P-90 pickups.

So what do I do? I take the chisel to it right away! Because I wanted a humbucking pickup! But in Pasadena, there were no Les Pauls with a humbucker in them. There was one store in northern Pasadena – a Les Paul came in and they called me right away ‘Hey, we’ve got a Les Paul!’ I...

Customer acquisition firm, Fluent, surveyed Americans on their thoughts about the rumored “iPhone 7,” the rumored Apple Watch 2, and perceptions around the brand. The survey was conducted among 1,735 adult residents (aged 18 and up) in the U.S.

The survey finds that iPhone owners are sticking with iPhone. Eighty-seven percent of iPhone users say they will purchase another Apple device as their next phone.  Only 76% of Android users plan to purchase another Android device; 17% of Android users want to switch to an iPhone.

iPhone users are split on whether the iPhone 7 will be a big deal; 47% think it will be, but 53% don’t. Also, most consumers think the iPhone is too expensive (especially Android users). Thirty-percent of those surveyed by Fluent thinks the pricing is fair, while 70% think it’s too expensive.

Facebook's WhatsApp Data Gambit Faces Federal...

Sam Gustin, writing for Motherboard: Facebook's decision to begin harvesting data from its popular WhatsApp messaging service provoked a social media uproar on Thursday, and prompted leading privacy advocates to prepare a federal complaint accusing the tech titan of violating US law. On Thursday morning, WhatsApp, which for years has dined out on its reputation for privacy and security, announced that it would begin sharing user phone numbers with its Menlo Park-based parent company in an effort "to improve your Facebook ads and products experiences." Consumer privacy advocates denounced the move as a betrayal of WhatsApp's one billion users -- users who had been assured by the two companies that "nothing would change" about the messaging service's privacy practices after Facebook snapped up the startup for a whopping $19 billion in 2014. "WhatsApp users should be shocked and upset," Claire Gartland, Consumer Protection Counsel at the Electronic Privacy Information Center, a...

From the Lookout security blog:

Citizen Lab (Munk School of Global Affairs, University of Toronto) and Lookout have uncovered an active threat using three critical iOS zero-day vulnerabilities that, when exploited, form an attack chain that subverts even Apple’s strong security environment.

Apple has been granted planning permission for an expansion at its Hollyhill site in Cork, which will create up to an additional 1,000 jobs over the next 18 months, according to The Irish Times. It will bring the total workforce there to 6,000 and also include a 752-space parking lot.

The company, which has been based in Cork since 1980 and currently employs more than 5,000 people in Ireland, is to construct a new building at the Hollyhill site, the article adds. The news comes following a 25% increase in the company’s workforce over the past 12 months.

An Bord Pleanála, a government-funded planning body, gave the expansion plan the go-ahead after dismissing an appeal against the development by local residents, according to...

Apple reportedly planning to add FeliCa chip support...

Apple is planning a new iPhone feature for Japan that will allow users to pay for mass-transit rides with their smartphones instead of physical payment cards, according to Bloomberg, quoting unnamed “people familiar with the matter.”

The article says that an upcoming iPhone will include technology called FeliCa, a mobile tap-to-pay standard in Japan developed by Sony. However, Bloomberg doesn’t say when the tech will be included in an Apple smartphone.

The FeliCa chip reportedly allow customers in Japan to store their public bus and train passes on their iPhones. Users would then be able to tap their phones against the entrance scanners instead of using physical cards.

An IC chip and antenna are embedded in each FeliCa card, enabling each transaction to be completed in approximately 0.1 sec, simply by holding...

MacDaddy has introduced File Extractor 1.0, a file extraction utility for Mac OS X. It allows you to find and extract files from any selected file, folder, or browser cache.

You can recover and save files that wouldn’t normally be accessible from the Finder. File Extractorfinds files inside PDFs, disk images, and even complex file types such as Adobe Photoshop documents. The app can extract text, graphics, video, and other types of files with just a few clicks of the mouse.

File Extractor can also recover corrupted or deleted files that may have been thought to be lost forever from camera SD cards, hard drives, and other media types. Users simply create a .dmg image file of the storage media they wish to search, and then File Extractor can go to work. 

Users of Safari, Firefox, and Chrome browsers can also make use of the app’s ability to find and recover images, text, video, and other files from the browsers'...

Apple: VirnetX can't raise willfulness in...

VirnetX, an Internet security software and technology company, can’t claim in a retrial that Apple willfully infringed patents for FaceTime and other technologies, after the patent-holding company specifically disavowed that allegation in earlier court filings, Apple told a Texas federal judge on Wednesday.

In January 2014, VirnetX filed a motion with the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas seeking to supplement its infringement contentions against Apple, the defendant in a patent infringement lawsuit. And in May 2016 the company asked a Texas court to order Apple to stop providing its FaceTime and Messages features to customers, following the patent troll’s early court victory regarding patent infringement.

The motion alleged that Apple products, including...

The Domicopter

If you live in New Zealand, the Domino’s pizza drone may be coming your way.

Domino’s pizza has partnered with aerial drone business Flirtey, the two having been given the green light to test New Zealand pizza delivery via drones. The tests are slated to begin later this year, complete with government consideration.

Details around where the trial would be held have been kept under wraps – however Domino’s said it would use drone delivery alongside its usual delivery methods – and only where it would be faster than the use of a car or scooter.

Domino’s said it would offer drone delivery specials at the launch of the trial and would extend its dimensions, weight and distance of the deliveries based on...

Late Thursday, Apple released version 9.3.5 of its iOS operating system.

The new version, which can be downloaded over the air or via iTunes, includes the following fixes and changes:

– Description: A validation issue was addressed through improved input sanitization.

Instagram Opens Snappy New Events Channel


Instagram last week announced a new Explore video channel that gives users an easier way to find and watch events. The channel aggregates videos from concerts, sporting events and more, and its personalization features flag events that might be a good match for users' individual interests. The new channel initially will be available only to U.S. users. "One of the fundamental limitations of Instagram is that you only see content from people you explicitly follow," said Jan Dawson, chief analyst at Jackdaw Research.

This laptop stand mTowers above the rest

With an increasing number of folks choosing laptops over desktops for full-time uses, there's a big market for notebook stands. They're handy when you use your portable as a de facto desktop computer by connecting it to an external monitor. One of the sleekest -- perhaps the sleekest -- of the stands is the mTower from Rain Design.

Unlike some similar products, the mTower holds your MacBook, MacBook Air or MacBook Pro vertically rather than horizontally. If you're not using your laptop's screen -- say, you have the notebook connected to an external monitor but the lid closed -- this saves a lot of desk real estate. It also helps keep your laptop cool since air can circulate all around it.

One of the great things about the mTower is that works with just about any Apple laptop -- from the 11-inch MacBook Air to the discontinued 17-inch MacBook Pro thanks to the silicon...

Apple Patenting a Way To Collect Fingerprints,...

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Apple Insider: As published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, Apple's invention covering "Biometric capture for unauthorized user identification" details the simple but brilliant -- and legally fuzzy -- idea of using an iPhone or iPad's Touch ID module, camera and other sensors to capture and store information about a potential thief. Apple's patent is also governed by device triggers, though different constraints might be applied to unauthorized user data aggregation. For example, in one embodiment a single failed authentication triggers the immediate capture of fingerprint data and a picture of the user. In other cases, the device might be configured to evaluate the factors that ultimately trigger biometric capture based on a set of defaults defined by internal security protocols or the user. Interestingly, the patent application mentions machine learning as a potential solution for deciding when to capture biometric data and how to...

Apple released an update to iOS 9 on Thursday—iOS 9.3.5—that patches multiple critical zero-day vulnerabilities that have been shown to already have been deployed, allegedly by governments to target activists and dissidents, according to a report from Citizen Lab and Lookout Security. Apple turned around an update within 10 days from when the company received Citizen Lab’s initial report. The update is recommended immediately for all iOS 9 devices. 

When used together, the exploits allow someone to hijack an iOS device and control or monitor it remotely. Hijackers would have access to the device’s camera and microphone, and could capture audio calls even in otherwise end-to-end secured apps like WhatsApp. They could also grab stored images, tracking movements, and retrieve files.

A new report from China Labor Watch, a labor rights watchdog and advocacy organization, says there are are continued workers’ rights violations at factories owned by Pegatron. Pegatron is an electronics manufacturing company that develops mainly computing, communications and consumer electronics to branded vendors, including Apple.

“Working conditions are terrible, and workers are subject to terrible treatment. Currently, Apple’s profits are declining, and the effects of this decline have been passed on to suppliers,” writes China Labor Watch. “ To mitigate the impact, Pegatron has taken some covert measures to exploit workers. This report is based on interviews with Pegatron workers and a comparative study of 2015 copies of paystubs collected in 2015 and 2016. Through our investigation, we have found that Pegatron has taken some surreptitious measures to pass Apple’s...
