Continuity Keypad adds a dialer to OS X Yosemite for...

Anyone testing iPhone Handoff calling on OS X Yosemite, Apple’s latest Mac operating system, have probably noticed one major detail missing: a dialer. Student developers Eytan Schulman and Harrison Weinerman have created a very useful utility called Continuity Keypad that solves that problem.

Essentially what the app does is bridge a gap created by Handoff and FaceTime when making calls on your Mac using your iPhone. It creates a dialer similar to the one found on your iPhone allowing you to easily call numbers using your iPhone from your Mac, and it uses transparency to fit in with the new look of OS X.

The current implementation of Handoff between iPhone and Mac allows you to answer incoming calls from anyone, call out numbers saved in your contacts, or type out...

Gameover Zombies on the March Again


The Gameover botnet is back, more or less, only six weeks or so after the Justice Department announced that an FBI-led multinational effort had disrupted it. Still, the botnet's downtime was longer than expected -- the UK's National Crime Agency had warned that the people running it would regain control within two weeks. Sophos this week spotted a new version of the malware. Only a few samples have been identified, but it has been distributed through widespread spam campaigns, so there already may be a large number of victims.

BrandPost: PDF: What it is, when it’s used, how to...

Since its advent in 1991, the Portable Document Format standard, or PDF, has become an indispensable part of the tech universe. Once a proprietary standard, its original developer Adobe released the PDF as an open standard in 2008, making it free for other developers to work with. Today, the PDF has become a critical tool for attorneys, HR managers, and publishers, and the standard digital format for any important document.

The ongoing goal of the PDF standard is to make it easy to share documents between different operating systems and devices while preserving the content and design of those documents. PDFs can’t be altered the way standard word processing files can without leaving a digital trail, and they can be password protected to ensure that only authorized eyes get to read them. This makes the PDF very useful for more sensitive correspondences, and the ubiquity of free PDF readers (including Adobe’s own Acrobat Reader) means that everyone has easy access to PDF files...

Analysts predict up to 40M iPhones sold last quarter...

With Apple’s upcoming fiscal Q3 earnings call just around the corner, analysts are predicting the company sold as many as 40 million iPhones during the quarter that ended last month. That’s on the high side of estimates complied by Fortune, however. Estimates from a poll of 26 analysts includes predictions ranging from 31.8 million to almost 40 million units. The average of estimates comes in at 35.88 million.

If Apple does report iPhone sales for the quarter somewhere in the neighbourhood of the 35 million average, that would represent an almost 15% increase from last year. In its Q3 earnings...

The part is consistent with a recent rumor, and represents roughly a 16 percent improvement over the iPhone 5s. If it's authentic though, any gains will probably be offset by the extra power demands of the 6's 4.7-inch display, and possibly its A8 processor....

Additional evidence of Apple’s next-gen battery for its upcoming iPhone 6 handset has surfaced.

The pictured parts bear a capacity rating of 1,810 mAh and appear to be manufactured by Desay Battery, a supplier previously rumored to have been certified by Apple for the iPhone 6.

Though detailed, the photo does not appear to disclose the battery’s physical dimensions, which are said to have caused a fair amount of frustration in the production process. The company is thought to have had trouble when attempting to slim the parts...

The Big Honking Business-as-Usual IBM-Apple Deal


The news that Apple and IBM have joined forces sent a shockwave through the Apple-focused world this week, and I admit it, I was surprised. At first glance, the deal seems to be this big group hug with the two companies becoming inextricably entwined. Yeah, it's not that. In fact, this is the biggest deal that really isn't all that "BIG" that I've seen in a long time. It seems groundbreaking -- and it will pay off handsomely for both Apple and IBM -- but it's really just an extension of business as usual for both companies.

Kickstarter campaign offers ‘Magsafe for iPhone’ (...

The main product offered on this Kickstarter campaign is just another powered case (albeit a pretty-looking one) – but it was the ‘Magsafe for iPhone’ adapter three-quarters of the way down the page that caught my eye.

Plug in a slim adapter to the Lightning socket of your iPhone, plug in an adapter to your Lightning cable and you have the equivalent of a MagSafe connection on your phone.

It’s a neat idea, but sadly not one that is likely to survive scrutiny by Apple’s lawyers – at least, not using ‘MagSafe for iPhone’ as the description. Battery company Hyper, which makes external batteries for MacBooks and iPads, learned this the hard way when it offered MagSafe connectors. Apple’s lawyers sued, and forced...

Nearly 25 Years Ago, IBM Helped Save Macintosh

dcblogs (1096431) writes "Apple and IBM, which just announced partnership to bring iOS and cloud services to enterprises, have helped each other before. IBM played a key role in turning the Macintosh into a successful hardware platform at a point when it — and the company itself — were struggling. Nearly 25 years ago, IBM was a part of an alliance that gave Apple access to PowerPC chips for Macintosh systems that were competitive, if not better performing in some benchmarks, than the processors Intel was producing at the time for Windows PCs. In 1991, Apple was looking for a RISC-based processor to replace the Motorola 68K it had been using in its Macintosh line. "The PCs of the era were definitely outperforming the Macintoshes that were based on the 68K," he said. "Apple was definitely behind the power, performance curve," said Nathan Brookwood, principal analyst at Insight 64. The PowerPC processor that emerged from that earlier pairing changed that. PowerPC processors were used...

The Sony Exmor IMX220 is a larger 1/2.3-inch sensor that can support up to 20MP, but Apple is said to be planning to use it in its 13MP incarnation.

While a Chinese web forum is generally as unreliable a source as you can get, GoforGames claims that this one has a good track-record with Sony-related rumors …

Chinese company Wico has cloned the yet-to-be-released iPhone 6, if a pair of videos can be believed. "The similarities are eerily close," said Ramon Llamas, a research manager at IDC, to the extent that the casual observer "may just simply accept this as an iPhone." There are slight differences on the sides, such as the volume and power buttons and the headphone jacks, as well as the chassis overall, but "it's not until you place them side by side that you can see the differences," Llamas noted.

Eight, a Natural Acoustic Amplifier for Your iPhone...

This has got to be one of the most interesting and beautiful speaker docks I have seen. It's called Eight, and it's a natural acoustic amplifier for the speaker in your iPhone 5 or 5s. It's made of wood-the dark part is walnut, while the light middle section is birdseye maple-and it funnels the sound from your speaker to one side, using the properties of wood and the shape of Eight to amplify that sound. The other side serves as a receiver for your iPhone's microphone so you can use Eight for phone calls. There are no electronics other than your iPhone involved, though it has a slot for an included Lightning cable to charge your iPhone. I haven't heard Eight, but it's a beautiful design and a fascinating idea. It's also pricey at $288-but that's because it's made from solid pieces of wood, hand-crafted, and hand-oiled. The company making Eight-Stark Design-is making each Eight to order, requiring 2-4 weeks before you get it.

Google, Novartis Team on 'Invisible'...


Novartis' Alcon eye care division has entered an in-license agreement governing all ocular medical uses for Google's smart contact lenses, it announced Tuesday. Google unveiled a prototype of its glucose-monitoring lens in January. No financial details of the arrangement were released, and the deal needs to clear regulators before it can be completed. Novartis sees its deal with Google as a way to expand its healthcare horizons. There are 382 million diabetics around the world today and that number is expected to grow to 582 million by 2035.

Loot Crate Three Month Subscription for $48

How did I not know about Loot Crate? Because no one told me about it, I'm guessing, but now I'm telling you. This is a subscription service where you pay them some money and they send you a mystery box full of stuff every month. By stuff, I mean gaming, comic, and nerd stuff-you don't know what you're getting until you get your box and open it. That's way too much fun. July's theme is villains, BTW, so again, too much fun. The regular price for this service is $18.60 a month, but through our friends at StackSocial, we get to offer it to you for $16. It's not a huge discount, but you're already getting a discount because the value of each Loot Crate is pegged at $120.

With a unanimous voten, the Senate's passage of the bill directs the Librarian of Congress, the authority for rulemaking for such things, to "consider whether other wireless devices, like tablets, should be eligible for unlocking." The bill has a ways to go before it reaches the President's desk, however. A similar bill passed by the House of Representatives needs to be reconciled with this version of the bill -- the House's version of the bill does not contain language allowing bulk unlocking...

Apple Agrees To $450 Million Ebook Antitrust...

An anonymous reader writes: Last year, a U.S. District Judge ruled that Apple conspired with publishers to control ebook prices in violation of antitrust laws. Apple launched an appeal which has yet to conclude, but they've now agreed to a settlement. If the appeal verdict goes against Apple, they will be on the hook for $450 million, most of which will go to consumers. If they win the appeal, they'll still have to pay $70 million. $450 million is much more than the other publishers had to pay, but much less than the expected penalty from a damages trial set for August (and still only about one percent of Apple's annual profit).

Apple agreed Wednesday to pay $450 million to settle an antitrust lawsuit accusing the company of conspiring with publishers to set the price of e-books.

The proposed deal is part of a case in which the Justice Department and several states sued Apple and five top publishers. But the payout to consumers could unravel if a federal appeals panel overturns a lower court ruling that Apple is liable.

"We did nothing wrong and we believe a fair assessment of the facts will show it," Apple spokeswoman Kristin Huguet told Reuters.

For the first time ever, users who do not subscribe to DirecTV service will have access to the NFL’s Sunday Ticket service on their mobile devices and computers for the 2014 season. During previous seasons, Sunday Ticket users had to have an active DirecTV satellite subscription to stream the games. While no official announcement has been made, DirecTV has published a promotional page for the service, advertising the fact that users can now “access live, out-of-market NFL games without a DIRECTV satellite TV account.

The service, according to the promotional page, will start $199.99 for the season with access via mobile devices and computers. Should you want access on video game consoles, you’ll have to spring for the $239.99 tier. The top of the line option...

Apple Agrees to $400M Settlement in Ebook Price...

Apple has decided not to fight a class action lawsuit over claims it orchestrated a price fixing scheme to artificially drive up the cost of books and will instead pay a US$400 million settlement. That payout is contingent on the outcome of Apple's appeal in the DOJ's antitrust case, so don't expect to see money changing hands any time soon.

The Mac Observer Spin: Settling with the States in the class action lawsuit makes financial sense for Apple. The alternative includes ongoing legal expenses and a potentially much higher fine that it's facing through the settlement. Agreeing to the deal doesn't mean Apple is admitting any wrong doing, although that's exactly how the State Attorneys General will spin it.
