Apple Already Patched KRACK Hack in iOS, tvOS,...

Apple has already patched against the KRACK hack in iOS, tvOS, watchOS, and macOS. iMore publisher Rene Ritchie tweeted that Apple confirmed all four OSes have been patched against the threat. In a separate piece, the site noted that Apple’s AirPort base stations have also been patched against KRACK. The flaw, called Key Reinstallation attack (KRACK) takes advantage of a flaw in the WPA2 standard that lets an attacker decrypt the data flowing through the wireless network. As noted in TMO’s Daily Observations on...

Check out this video of the Hoversurf in action. It’s a promo video Hoversurf produced with the Dubai police department to show off the Star Wars-like hoverbikes being produced for the oil-rich United Arab Emirates. These things can travel at 70 kilometers per hour (43.5MPH), according to ABC, with a range of 6 clicks (3.7 miles) and flight time of 25 minutes. It’s intensely awesome, except for the part where it’s obviously difficult to control. And keep in mind that this video is a carefully edited promotional video produced under what are theoretically optimum conditions. But whatevs, because [hoverbike]!

Review: Tsumbay TS-BH05 Active Noise Cancelling...

For most music listening, I love to use my Apple AirPods as they’re light, unobtrusive, and give me pretty good sound quality. But when I’m in noisy situations, the AirPods aren’t that great because they don’t do a good job of blocking external noise and have no noise cancelling capability built in. Today I’m looking at the Tsumbay TS-BH05 Active Noise Cancelling Bluetooth Headphone (MSRP $109.99, available for $59.99 on Amazon), a reasonably-priced set of Bluetooth headphones with active noise cancellation.

Design

The Tsumbay TS-BH05 uses an over-ear design with a soft pair of ear pads and a padded headband that can be adjusted to fit even a big head like mine. Weighing just .48 lbs (.22kg), they’re light enough to wear all day if you want to rock out for hours.

The headphone comes in a matte black finish that pretty...

One person’s history of Twitter, from beginning to...

Mike Monteiro:

Twitter, which was conceived and built by a room of privileged white boys (some of them my friends!), never considered the possibility that they were building a bomb. To this day, Jack Dorsey doesn’t realize the size of the bomb he’s sitting on. Or if he does, he believes it’s metaphorical. It’s not. He is utterly unprepared for the burden he’s found himself responsible for.

Twitter would have you believe that it’s a beacon of free speech. Biz Stone would have you believe that inaction is principle. I would ask you to consider the voices that have been silenced. The voices that have disappeared from Twitter because of the hatred and the abuse. Those voices aren’t free. Those voices have been caged. Twitter has become an engine for further marginalizing the marginalized. A pretty hate machine.

Monteiro voices the frustration many of us have with Twitter and its seeming lack of direction and its inability to solved the problems that are so

External Link: Apple Has Already Patched the WPA2...

Security professionals are fretting over the just-disclosed KRACK flaw, which renders all WPA2-protected Wi-Fi networks vulnerable to attack. Fortunately, MacRumors is reporting Apple told iMore’s Rene Ritchie that it has already plugged the vulnerability in the next betas of macOS, iOS, watchOS, and tvOS. Once Apple releases the current betas, likely in the next few days, those fixes will protect the data sent and received on devices running those operating systems, even if the Wi-Fi router itself remains vulnerable. The real concern with KRACK will come with older devices for which patches don’t become available.

Review: RHA Dacamp L1 Portable DAC/Amp

One of the perks of writing headphone reviews is the chance we get to introduce readers to companies that make great audio gear they might otherwise never encounter. London-based RHA is one of those companies — already a favorite in the audiophile community, but small enough that you're not likely to see their stuff being used by your fellow commuters on a crowded train. Today we make the introduction with one of RHA's most interesting products — the Dacamp L1. Though it may strain the definition of "portable," it's one of the most versatile and feature-packed portable DAC/amps we've yet seen.{/exp:char_limit}

Space out with planets in Google Maps

Twenty years ago, the spacecraft Cassini launched from Cape Canaveral on a journey to uncover the secrets of Saturn and its many moons. During its mission, Cassini recorded and sent nearly half a million pictures back to Earth, allowing scientists to reconstruct these distant worlds in unprecedented detail. Now you can visit these places—along with many other planets and moons—in Google Maps right from your computer. For extra fun, try zooming out from the Earth until you’re in space!

Drone footage shows nearly-completed Apple Park

Since the construction of Apple Park began, we've been following the progress thanks to well-done videos taken from drones flying over the facility. We probably won't see these for much longer, so it's always nice to see a new video coming in from Matthew Roberts:

This video shows just how far along all of the final landscaping is. You see that trees are still being installed around the facility, there are some small structures that are still being built, and sports facilities -- basketball and tennis courts -- are being constructed. But the main "spaceship" building is all nicely finished on the exterior, although interior finish work must be ongoing (there are a lot of Porta-Potties lined up at one point near the building...). 

I'm curious to know whether Apple will apply to have the air over Apple Park set aside as a "No Fly Zone", as the skies could quickly fill with drones of...

KeyBanc analyst John Vinh tells clients that carrier store surveys show Apple’s iPhone 7 outsells the newer iPhone 8. He adds that store feedback indicates customers waiting to see the iPhone X before deciding on a new model. 

Modest iPhone 8 offers from carriers could also drive down device sales, according to the analyst. Finally, while iPhone 8 starts from $699 in the U.S., iPhone 7 is retailing from $549 after a recent price cut.

On the flip side, KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has looked at data available since the release of the iPhone 8 models last month and says that sales of the iPhone 8 Plus have been "better than expected."

WPA-2 Wi-Fi encryption has been hacked

Oh, great. The encryption method used to protect most wireless networks -- Wi-Fi Protected Access II (WPA-2) -- has been hacked, and it has the possibility of affecting all major computer platforms. KRACK (short for "Key Reinstallation Attack"  is the name of the flaw that has been exploited, and it makes it possible for those attacking a network to eavesdrop on any network traffic between an access point and a device.

At this point, Microsoft and Google have both acknowledged the issue, with Microsoft releasing an update today that should take care of the issue in its flagship Windows operating system, while Google's Pixel devices will receive an update next month.

iFixit has spent years compiling repair guides for all of Apple’s products, including the new iPhone 8, which iFixit flew to Australia to obtain in order to publish a guide before most of the rest of the world had woken up. iFixit CEO Kyle Wiens sat down with Adam Minter of Bloomberg for an interview in which he extolled the virtues of repair, including the creation of blue-collar jobs, sales of replacement parts, and reducing overload on the vendor. Wiens points out that Apple has 500 repair shops to service 1 billion iPhones. His best line in the article comes in response to Apple claiming it designs for durability, not repairability: “It seems a little bit detached from reality to say that we design products not to break that have glass on both sides and come out of your pocket 10 times per day.”

Choose wisely -- because once you pick one voice assistant, it'll be difficult to switch. As Scott Rosenberg writes at Backchannel, "If I want to switch assistants down the line, sure, I can just go out and buy another device. But that investment of time and personal data isn't so easy to replace... Right now, all these assistants behave like selfish employees who think they can protect their jobs by holding vital expertise or passwords close to their chests. Eventually , the data that runs the voice assistant business is going to have to be standardized."

The court denied all of Apple's motions: motion for judgment as a matter of law of non-infringement, motion for judgment as a matter of law on damages, motion for a new trial on infringement, and motion for a new trial on damages. The Court granted all VirnetX's motions; motion for willful infringement and enhanced the royalty rate during the willfulness period by 50 percent, from $1.20 to $1.80, awarding VirnetX enhanced damages in the amount of $41,271,364.80 against Apple thereby, granting VirnetX a total sum of $343,699,314.80 in pre-interest damages.

A set of six collegiate researchers are set to unveil details on a Key Reinstallation Attack (KRACK Attack) for WPA-2 Wi-Fi security, which if legitimate can allow attackers to undermine encryption on any wi-fi connection utilizing the security method -- including Apple hardware connecting to Airport Extreme and Airport Express routers. AppleInsider explains what it is, and how to cut down on the potential for attack until patches are rolled out.

KeyBanc Capital Markets says Apple will report...

KeyBanc Capital Markets has raised its rating for Apple shares to “overweight” from “sector weight,” predicting the company will report better-than-expected earnings next year, reports CNBC.

"Apple's introduction of iPhone X at a $999 entry price, its increase to iPhone 8/8+ prices, and its change to storage step-up pricing collectively represent a more aggressive strategy to segment its customer base and extract incremental gross profit from its users than we previously expected," the firm's analyst, Andy Hargreves, said in a note to clients.

Apple shares rose 0.9% in Monday's premarket session after the report. Hargreaves initiated a $187 price target for Apple shares, representing 19% upside to Friday's close.

"Apple's most inelastic customers are likely to be the ones who look to purchase the iPhone X first," he wrote. "Assuming supply...

Apple manufacturer Foxconn has begun shipping iPhone X devices out of China, but the first batch “only” totals around 47,000 units, according to Digitimes.

Foxconn has ramped up its iPhone X output from 100,000 to 400,000per week, but supply still lags behind demand, the article adds. The premium iPhone has reportedly experienced production delays due to its OLED panel and difficulties producing one part of its 3D sensor system. Ordering will start on Oct. 27, and they’ll ship Nov. 3. The iPhone X will come in 64GB and 256GB models with pricing starting at $999.

Apple HomePod: 3 lingering questions

Dan Moren, Macworld:

Smart speakers are here, and they’re not going away anytime soon. In the last month or so alone, Amazon has rolled out an entirely new lineup of its Echo devices while Google has supplemented its standard Google Home with both a smaller and larger version. Even Microsoft has gotten into the game, with a Cortana-based smart speaker from Harman Kardon, and multiroom audio purveyor Sonos has announced an Alexa-based model of one of its speakers shipping later this month.

And in all that time, Apple has sat quietly, saying nothing more about its upcoming HomePod than was announced at this summer’s Worldwide Developers Conference. The company didn’t so much as mention its smart speaker during its event last month, though to be fair it had little time with the occasion packed full of iPhones as it was.

That means that with only a couple months left before the HomePod is out on the market, there are still more than a few questions about Apple’s...

The impossible dream of USB-C

Marco Arment:

I love the idea of USB-C: one port and one cable that can replace all other ports and cables. It sounds so simple, straightforward, and unified.

In practice, it’s not even close.

And:

USB-C normally transfers data by the USB protocol, but it also supports Thunderbolt… sometimes. The 12-inch MacBook has a USB-C port, but it doesn’t support Thunderbolt at all.

And:

If you bought a USB-C cable, it might support Thunderbolt, or it might not. There’s no way to tell by looking at it. There’s usually no way to tell whether a given USB-C device requires Thunderbolt, either — you just need to plug it in and see if it works.

This goes on and on. The most frustrating part of all this is the opacity of it all. All the details hidden. True for both ports and cables.

Be sure to scroll down to the end for conclusion. Marco nails this.

Elon Musk calls someone a nerd

Over the weekend, Elon Musk had a Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything). If you are into cars or rockets, this is an exceptional read, full of nerdy detail.

But this one back and forth moment jumped out at me:

  • Q: The concept of an internet connection on Mars is kinda awesome. You could theoretically make an internet protocol that would mirror a subset of the internet near Mars. A user would need to queue up the parts of the internet they wanted available and the servers would sync the relevant data. There could be a standard format for pages to be Mars renderable since server-side communication is impractical.

  • ELON MUSK: Nerd.

Musk does go on to answer the question, but I loved the response. Musk is human.

Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak announces Woz U,...

The Woz is endeavoring to bring more affordable tech education your way.

Last week, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak announced the formation of Woz U, an online university designed to make tech education more affordable.

He stated that while the current plan is for web-based classes in the near term, the long-term plan is to bring physical campuses to more than 30 cities throughout the U.S. and around the world.

The initiative is geared to benefit both students and businesses alike, allowing for a larger source of trained tech workers that can be hired.

“Our goal is to educate and train people in employable digital skills without putting them into years of debt,” said Wozniak. “People often are afraid to choose a technology-based career because they think they can’t do it. I know they can, and I want to show them how.”

An app has also been created to help identify the best education track for each potential student.

Apple expands Apple Pay Cash beta testing to...

Apple has reportedly expanded an internal test of its forthcoming Apple Pay Cash technology to include its retail employees, which suggests that it may be ready for public release in the near future.

Apple began rolling out the feature to retail employees today, asking workers to install the latest iOS 11.1 beta and a special device certificate in order to enable the P2P function. Employees taking part in the internal evaluation are required to whitelist iCloud accounts in order to use the service.

Signs of the expanded Apple Pay Cash test emerged last week when select corporate staff were granted access to the upcoming feature.

Recent screenshots include setup screens, wherein users are asked to verify their identify by providing a full name, address, social security number and date of birth. According to Apple, the information will be verified using an unnamed identity verification service.

Apple files for a patent for ‘routing based on...

Apple has been granted a patent (number 20170292840) for “routing based on detected stops” that would allow the Maps app on an iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch or CarPlay-based system to detect and re-route your trip based on continually updated traffic info.

Compatible with iPhone 5 and later models, CarPlay provides a simplified way to use your iPhone interface on a car’s touch screen, giving users access to Siri voice controls, as well as Apple Maps, Apple Music, Phone, Messages, and a variety of third party apps.

Here’s Apple’s summary of the invention: “In some implementations, a mobile device can transmit traffic information to a server for analysis. The traffic information can include movement information including detected stops and durations of detected stops. The traffic information can be analyzed to detect traffic patterns that indicate locations of stop signs and/or stop lights. The traffic information can be analyzed to determine durations of stops at stop...

Why we can’t have nice things: WiFi is now broken

Dan Goodin, Ars Technica:

An air of unease set into the security circles on Sunday as they prepared for the disclosure of high-severity vulnerabilities in the Wi-Fi Protected Access II protocol that make it possible for attackers to eavesdrop Wi-Fi traffic passing between computers and access points.

The proof-of-concept exploit is called KRACK, short for Key Reinstallation Attacks. The research has been a closely guarded secret for weeks ahead of a coordinated disclosure that’s scheduled for 8 a.m. Monday, east coast time.

That reveal is scheduled for a few minutes from now. This is real “sky is falling” news, basically impacting the majority of WiFi using folk who use WPA2 to protect their WiFi connections.

More from the article:

The vast majority of existing access points aren’t likely to be patched quickly, and some may not be patched at all. If initial reports are accurate that encryption bypass exploits are easy and reliable in the WPA2...

Protect your privates with DefenderPad for laptops

Do laptops and similar devices give off harmful radiation? Maybe. Some scientific evidence suggests that close exposure to laptop EMR emissions may cause a number of health concerns, particularly to young children who have less dense tissue and bone than adults. 

Laptops, especially those with Wi-Fi capabilities, emit electromagnatic radiation. Though the chances of getting cancer from using laptops on your lap is yet to be related to cancer as a cause by any of the studies so far, it is known that EMF radiation can cause fertility problems, cellular damage or DNA mutation, as well as create skin problems. So why take a chance?

If you use a laptop, chances are that it's sitting in your lap -- and next to some delicate body parts -- for minutes, even hours, at a time. You'll need a good lap desk, so might as well get one that's custom built to block radiation.
