Review: SwitchEasy’s Blocks + Colors are toy-like...

Earlier in my reviewing career, I always tried to estimate the likely audience for products I tested: was an accessory likely to be universally appealing, somewhat popular, niche, or poorly received by virtually everyone? Many reviews (and reader comments) later, I learned there was at least a small audience for virtually anything, and conversely, that some people found reasons to dislike even the best-designed and best-reviewed products. I eventually concluded that there is no such thing as “universally appealing” or “universally bad” — just products for different audiences of different sizes.

Super-Scary Android Flaw Found


Zimperium on Monday revealed a stunning discovery by researcher Joshua Drake -- a flaw in Android's Stagefright media playback engine that could expose millions of mobile device users to attack without their having done anything. Stagefright, which processes several popular media formats, is implemented in native code -- C++ -- which is more prone to memory corruption than memory-safe languages such as Java, according to Zimperium. Stagefright has several remote code execution vulnerabilities that can be exploited using various methods.

If you're debating whether to buy an iPhone 6 now or wait for the inevitable hardware refresh this fall, T-Mobile is trying to make that decision a lot easier.

The carrier is extending the $15 per month promotional pricing for its Jump On Demand program, which lets users upgrade to a new phone up to three times per year. T-Mobile customers who buy an iPhone 6 by September 7 can get the next iPhone at no extra cost when they upgrade by the end of this year. (The larger iPhone 6 Plus costs $19 per month.)

Alympus tweak revamps multitasking on jailbroken iOS...

Famed designer Surenix and developer Kyle Howells have teamed up to create a new iOS task switcher/Control Center replacement called Alympus, which combines a full screen of toggles with a new music controller and a customizable grid layout for running apps.

At the heart of Alympus is the switcher view, which presents your running apps in a 2×2 grid, giving you access to more applications at once than the standard switcher provides. Pinching on this screen allows you to show either more or fewer cards.

Zooming in will allow you to see one app at a time like the regular iOS switcher, while zooming out will allow you to see nine apps at once. Zooming out once more will turn the cards into individual icons, letting you fit 20 apps on the screen at once. Swiping up on one of these apps (even in the icon view) lets...

Apple's new music streaming service will no longer count against T-Mobile's limits on high-speed data. T-Mobile announced the expansion of "Music Freedom" today, which in total exempts 33 music services from data limits imposed on certain customers.

"Apple Music has become the single most requested new addition to Music Freedom and counts for a full 80% of the requests coming in via Twitter. I heard every one of them, so it’s happening right now!" T-Mobile US CEO John Legere wrote today.

T-Mobile today also said that customers who buy the iPhone 6 this summer under its so-called "JUMP! On Demand" installment plan can swap it for the next iPhone without any new fees "and no change to your monthly payment."

What 2,000 calories looks like

The New York Times:

The nation’s largest restaurant chains have made a big deal in recent years about introducing smaller portion sizes. McDonald’s eliminated the Supersize menu, while T.G.I. Fridays and others have introduced small-plate items. Yet the restaurants have also been doing something else, with less fanfare: continuing to add dishes so rich that a single meal often contains a full day’s worth of calories.

Here, we show you what roughly 2,000 calories looks like at some large chains.

I’ve been using the MyFitnessPal app to track my daily meals and trying to stay under 2,000 calories. Terrifying to realize so many of these meals I ate when I was younger have that many calories in a single meal.

Three weeks after Apple Music’s launch, Apple CEO Tim Cook said “millions and millions of customers” had already signed up for the new streaming service, which certainly sounded impressive (though vague). We weren’t expecting to hear any hard numbers so soon after Apple Music’s release, but music industry insiders are saying more than 10 million people have subscribed in less than a month.

The numbers come from music industry trade publication Hits Daily Double. Record label execs are bound by Apple’s non-disclosure agreements to keep quiet, but multiple sources told the pub that Cupertino is sharing the 10 million subscriber stat with song rights-holders to prove Apple Music is already a competitive service. Some songs have racked up as many streams on Apple Music as on Spotify.

The “iPhone 6c” may never come to pass.

A new industry report from Cowen and Company analyst Timothy Arcuri, revealed in a recent note to investors that he can no longer find evidence that Apple is working on such a device for 2015.

The note has Arcuri nixing the idea of the smaller handset so as not to cannibalize sales of refreshed 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch models widely expected to launch this fall.

“I think one of the reasons is because the iPhone 6 has sold so well,” Arcuri said. “And they said, ‘Look, why would we want to cannibalize? If we came out with an iPhone 6C, we would essentially cannibalize a price-reduced...

There are some great gems, like "Apple Watch is a FLOP: Sales of the gadget have fallen by 90 percent since April, report claims" or "Analyst: Apple Watch selling worse than thought." Trouble is, the reports and estimates were based on a tiny slice of reality. In fact, after Apple's earnings call with analysts last week, Apple CEO Tim Cook revealed that Apple Watch sales were higher in June than in April or May. So, how is it that sales are tanking?

With Freemium Field Test, we’ll take a recent free-to-play iOS game, put it through its paces, and let you know if it’s really worth your time (and money). 

It’s easy to get excited about this weekend’s release of Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, especially after 2011’s Ghost Protocol pumped some life back into the spy film franchise. Just look at the latest trailer: The bike chase! That car chase! The gadgets! Tom Cruise hanging off of an airplane!

Filmmakers fighting “Happy Birthday” copyright find...

It's been two years since filmmakers making a documentary about the song "Happy Birthday" filed a lawsuit claiming that the song shouldn't be under copyright. Now, they have filed (PDF) what they say is "proverbial smoking-gun evidence" that should cause the judge to rule in their favor.

The "smoking gun" is a 1927 version of the "Happy Birthday" lyrics, predating Warner/Chappell's 1935 copyright by eight years. That 1927 songbook, along with other versions located through the plaintiffs' investigations, "conclusively prove that any copyright that may have existed for the song itself... expired decades ago."

If the filmmakers' lawyers are right, it could mean a quick route to victory in a lawsuit that's been both slow-moving and closely watched by copyright reform advocates. Warner/Chappell has built a licensing empire based on "Happy Birthday," which in 1996 was pulling...

Commerce company eBay announced today that it will soon retire several of its mobile apps including ones on iPhone and iPad. eBay’s primary iOS app will not be going anyway, however, and several of the discontinued apps will eventually see their features appear in the main eBay app.

In an effort to simply the shopping experience, eBay says it will be shutting down its Valet, Fashion, and Motors apps soon and later integrate their features into eBay’s primary app.

Bugs Bunny at 75: watch the first-ever “What’s up,...

TIME:

The usual gestation period for a rabbit is a month. But Bugs Bunny, the iconic cartoon character who turns 75 on Monday, took a lot longer to come to life.

Here’s how the world’s favorite cartoon rabbit came to be. Animator Chuck Jones gave credit to Tex Avery for the character, but Warner Bros. had made several rabbit cartoons in the studio’s earlier years. There were cutesy rabbits and wacky rabbits, but those rabbits aren’t Bugs.

The video in the story is the first official appearance of the iconic rabbit. It’s remarkable how it still stands up today. As a kid, Bugs was my favorite of all of the Warner Bros. cartoons.

Pandora’s ‘Sponsored Listening’ rewards ad...

After a pilot of its new “Sponsored Listening” advertisements last year, streaming music service Pandora Radio announced today that it’s rolling out the feature to all advertisers and listeners in its mobile apps. The feature rewards users with an hour of ad-free, uninterrupted listening as long as they first interact with an ad for at least 15 seconds.

Pandora says listeners and advertisers responded positively to the pilot program with a 12 percent increase in brand awareness and a 30 percent increase in purchase intent, so now the company is rolling out...

Google starts divorcing Google+

When is a social network not a social network? When “using” a social network is a requirement to access services you really wanted to use. Like email. Or videos.

I know Google wants Google+ to work, but forcing people to use it isn’t the way to make it popular. Thankfully, they’ve learned that. At least for now.

Hullo — The Pillow You’ll Appreciate Every Night [...

My thanks to Hullo for sponsoring The Loop this week. You already know the ergonomics of your desktop workstation are important; have you considered your sleep ergonomics? You spend around one-third of your life sleeping—a lot of time for your head and neck to be in one position. Whether you are a side sleeper, a back sleeper, or a stomach sleeper, proper positioning and support of your head are important for quality sleep. Have you ever used more than one pillow, or folded your pillow in an attempt to find a comfortable position? Somewhat like a bean bag, Hullo can be shaped to hold your head in a comfortable position, and keep it there throughout the night. One simple pillow can make a difference you’ll appreciate, every night. Guaranteed. Check out Hullo.

The only six stocks that matter

The Wall Street Journal:

Six firms— Amazon.com Inc., Google Inc., Apple Inc., Facebook Inc., Netflix Inc. and Gilead Sciences Inc.—now account for more than half of the $664 billion in value added this year to the Nasdaq Composite Index, according to data compiled by brokerage firm JonesTrading.

The concentrated gains are spurring concerns that soft trading in much of the market could presage a pullback in the indexes. Many investors see echoes of prior market tops—including the 2007 peak and the late 1990s frenzy—when fewer and fewer stocks lifted the broader market. The S&P 500 is up 1% this year while the Nasdaq has gained 7.4%.

Other indicators are also flashing yellow. In the Nasdaq, falling stocks have outnumbered rising stocks this year, sending the “advance-decline line” into negative territory, a phenomenon that has come before market downturns in the past, investors and analysts said.

That kind of concentration is always worrying and...

Opinion: A Mac’s longevity is its biggest unsung...

Apple can’t advertise Macs as having ten-year lifespans for legal reasons, and reviewers rarely write about their old computers ten years later — they’re typically focused on each year’s latest and greatest machine. But the average person buys a computer and keeps using it until it stops working, something I note every time a friend or family member “finally” upgrades from an old Mac to a new one.

This morning, Christopher Phin’s article “Saying goodbye to a beloved 2008 MacBook Pro” recalled the many end-of-life Mac discussions I’ve had with people over the years — specifically that their still-working-but-old Macs are so antiquated that virtually every internal component has been replaced in...

We previously reported that Jim Dalrymple of The Loop publicly quit Apple Music after it ate a good chunk of his collection. The good news is that, with Apple’s help, he was able to recover much of his music. The problem turned out to be an interaction with iTunes Match. According to Apple, iTunes Match now shows only your purchased content if you turn off Apple Music and iCloud Music Library. Unfortunately, Dalrymple thinks he accidentally deleted about two hundred songs that he won’t be able to recover.

Apple has announced an expansion of its Apple Maps vehicle program, a fleet of vans equipped with advanced sensors collecting data for an improved Maps experience. Among the new locations, Apple will be bringing the vehicles to France and Sweden for the first time, while it also plans to survey a long list of new cities in the US and UK where it’s already started surveying.

We first reported on the project back in May, noting that Apple was gathering data to reduce its reliance on third-parties, including getting Google Street View-type images of storefronts and other 3D imagery.

If you bought a Nike+ FuelBand between Jan. 19, 2012 and June 17, 2015, you might be eligible to claim a little bit of cash. Nike is paying out $2.4 million to settle a class-action lawsuit claiming the FuelBand misled buyers by delivering inaccurate step and calorie counts.

As part of the settlement, Nike is offering a $15 cash payment or $25 gift card to eligible FuelBand buyers who submit a claim here. You can also exclude yourself from the settlement if you plan to challenge its terms in court or sue Nike or Apple down the line. If you don’t file a claim or exclude yourself from the settlement, you won’t be eligible for cash or a gift card and you won’t be able to sue.

It’s good to see that Sir Ian cooks like mom(s) did – with no idea of how much of any ingredient to put in. Just go by feel and expereince and it comes out perfectly. I’ll definitely be trying this method next time I make scrambled eggs.

The report also notes that the updated 8MP iSight camera found in the iPad Air 2 will likely make its way into…

Apple Watch to be sold at Best Buy

The Wall Street Journal:

One month after Apple Inc. started selling Apple Watch at its own stores, the company said it will bring the device to Best Buy stores in August.

Apple said its smartwatch will be available at more than 100 Best Buy stores in the U.S., expanding to over 300 outlets before the holiday shopping season. Best Buy will be the first major U.S. retailer beside Apple to sell the device.

This is a sign Apple wants to get the Watch in front of even more customers and that they have caught up on demand. It’s also in preparation for the upcoming holiday season when Apple expects the Watch to be a huge seller for Christmas.

Disney could respond to the increase trend toward cord-cutting by offering direct consumer access to ESPN, says Bob Iger, CEO of The Walt Disney Company. This could potentially make it available as a standalone channel on Apple TV, rather than something you can only get if you subscribe to a cable package that includes it.

But don’t rush out to cancel your cable subscription just yet – Iger, who is also on Apple’s board, said in a CNBC interview that the move won’t happen in the next five years. He was responding to questions about the future of the channel in an increasingly difficult market for cable. ...

Japanese blog Macotakara, which often publishes accurate information about unreleased Apple products and company news, today claims to have some reliable information on the yet-to-be-announced, upcoming iPad mini 4. Today’s report claims that the iPad mini 4 will look a lot like a smaller version of the current iPad Air 2.

That’s not saying a whole lot considering the current version also looks a lot like a smaller iPad Air 2 in its design, but the report adds that the fourth-gen will adopt the iPad Air 2’s 6.1mm thickness, down from the current 7.5 mm, as well as its improved 8MP front-facing camera. In...

Most of the accessories I’ve reviewed for 9to5Mac require little explanation — they’re the second, third, or tenth iteration of a concept we’ve seen many times before. Marked with “Carte Blanche” branding, Boostcase’s new Bloc ($60-$80) is something new… and as such, it mightn’t completely make sense at first blush. It’s not just an Apple Watch stand like the many others I’ve covered: it’s actually a standalone charging dock. With its own built-in power source. Made from your choice of wood ($60), aluminum ($80), or steel ($80).

It’s as minimalist of a design as docks can get: a big, solid-feeling box hiding your Apple Watch Magnetic Charging Cable and a 2000mAh battery inside...
