AARP Fraud Watch Network says scammers are pushing...

There’s a new scam that attempts to get people to pay back taxes by purchasing iTunes gift cards and sharing the code on the back of the card. AARP Fraud Watch Network is alerting consumers about this new scam and providing tips to help consumers protect themselves and their money against fraudsters.

A potential victim is contacted by an impostor claiming to be from the Internal Revenue Service informing them that they’re behind in state and federal taxes, and that the potential victim will be arrested if they don't pay back taxes immediately.

The caller directs the potential victim to purchase an iTunes gift card and put the amount they supposedly owe in back taxes, and then call back and provide the 16-digit code that is on the card to complete payment. Finally, the con artist sells the codes on the online black market and pockets the cash.

However, the IRS only accepts checks, cash and credit cards as forms of payment. And Apple sells iTunes gift cards...

SpotCrime is coming to the Apple TV

SpotCrime – an online source for crime data – is introducing a new app that will make near real-time crime data available on Apple TV.

“Apps undoubtedly are the future of TV,” says SpotCrime Founder and President Colin Drane. “Given Apple TV’s innovative use of apps to personalize the home TV experience and the public’s unquenchable demand for more information about crime activity, I believe SpotCrime’s new Apple TV app not only will make crime data more readily available to be shared, but ultimately will drive greater awareness and new measures that will lead to a reduction in crime.”

Using SpotCrime’s Apple TV app, viewers will be able to see up-to-date details about actual crime incidents. Through its proprietary model, SpotCrime pulls crime incident data from multiple sources, including state and local police departments and validated news sources, to produce a comprehensive record of local crime information...

UBS: Apple sold 1.7 million Apple Watches in the...

Swiss bank UBS has issued a research note that projects Apple Watch sales totaled 1.7 million units in the June quarter, an increase of 100,000 units compared to its estimate of 1.6 million sales in the March quarter, reports MacRumors.com.

UBS forecasts that Apple smartwatch sales will rise to two million in the September quarter, contributing to a total of 10.35 million units in the 2016 fiscal year. If those estimates are accurate, that would make Apple Watch the most popular smartwatch for the second consecutive year, ahead of Samsung among smartwatches and only behind Fitbit and its fitness trackers in the broader wearables market.

According to the latest research from Strategy Analytics, global smartwatch shipments grew 223% annually to reach 4.2 million units in the first quarter of 2016 (Q1 2016). Apple captured 52% global smartwatch marketshare, dipping from 63% share in the...

STM Atlas: A classy wallet case for iPhone 6/6s Plus

STM Atlas Wallet Case for iPhone 6/62 Plus. Photo ©2016 Steven Sande

When it comes to wallet cases for the iPhone 6/62 Plus that I've reviewed, there are some that have been both impressively useful and stylish, and some that were exactly the opposite. Today we're taking a look at the STM Atlas (US$34.95), a low-profile wallet case that looks great and provides protection for your big iPhone, all while not costing you an arm and a leg.

Design

The exterior of the Atlas is the most eye-catching feature. STM -- a company well-known for the excellent bags it produces -- used a textured fabric that has a good feel to it and looks quite nice, too. Inside, the case features a polycarbonate shell to hold the iPhone 6/6s Plus and has a microfiber lining.

One thing I've found with many cases like this is that they tend to pop open. STM uses two small...

Pixelmator 2.3 for iOS

There are some great new features in the latest version for iOS including:

  • Quick Selection Tool – this is an awesome and super accurate new selection tool that lets you swipe over areas to select them.
  • Magnetic Selection Tool – this tool snaps precise selections around objects and is really fun to use.
  • Selection improvements – there’s also a ton of improvements to the overall selection experience (including an Invert Selection feature).

Review: Are the Bragi Dash truly wireless earphones...

With it now looking all but certain that there will be no headphone socket in this year’s iPhone, demand for wireless headphones is likely to reach a new high. And when it comes to choosing a pair, Bragi’s Dash – marketed as ‘truly wireless smart earphones’ – seem on the face of it to be a very Apple-esque solution.

You can’t get much more minimalist than these. You have an earphone for each ear, and that’s it. No connecting cords, no neckband, nothing.

The earphones can also make a pretty good claim to living up to the ‘smart’ part of the branding, controlled by a mix of touch and gesture – such as nodding to accept an incoming call and shaking your head to reject it. For times when you don’t want to carry your phone, you can load music into the 4GB on-board memory. Which is handy when you’re swimming, as they claim to be 100% waterproof. And the carry-case has a built-in battery for on-the-go wireless...

Another major music streaming service is landing in the U.S.

Starting today, French music streaming service Deezer will be available to everyone across the United States. Unlike Spotify, however, Deezer is following services such as Apple Music and Tidal by offering a free 30-day trial rather than a dedicated free service tier. After that no-cost taste, prospective Deezer fans will have to pay $10 per month for the service.

Deezer already has about 6 million subscribers in 180 countries, including some in the U.S. When the company purchased Cricket’s free Muve streaming service from AT&T in early 2015 it began servicing those customers directly. Deezer is also available on Sonos and Bose speakers, and the French company acquired...

Software rot

512 Pixels:

There will be a day where some of my old machines will stop working. There will be a day where none of them work anymore.

As sad as that will be from a hardware perspective, it’s devastating in terms of preserving software. Old operating systems are sealed inside these machines. A dead Mac is really just a beige — or Bondi Blue — sarcophagus for the software stranded on its internal disk.

Preserving the textual contents of a document is one thing, but how do we preserve the experience? How do we save the applications and the non-textual data? Great piece by Stephen Hackett. Absolutely worth reading.

Tehran threatens to ban iPhones unless Apple...

The Japan Times:

In an ultimatum, Iranian officials asked iPhone manufacturer Apple Inc. to either officially register in Iran or have its products banned, a local news agency reported Monday.

“If Apple will not register an official representative in Iran within the next few days, all iPhones will be collected from the market,” Tasnim News Agency quoted the director of Iran’s anti-smuggling office as having said on Sunday.

More than 40 million Iranians are using smart phones, including millions of iPhone users, whose devices are often imported into the country by smugglers.

And:

For anti-smuggling purposes Iran has started a project, running under the president’s office, to ban smuggled mobile phones. The scheme, which will start later this week, will require all mobile phones to be registered with Iran’s telecommunications user database. Any that are not will not be able to be used.

Why ransomware criminals need great customer service

Ransomware developers have customers, however unwilling they may be. Thus, these criminals also have customer service. But is it effective? F-Secure, a company that specializes in security and anti-malware products for consumers and corporations, decided to evaluate the “help desks,” if you will, of ransomware malware, which covertly encrypts files on victims’ machines, and then demands fees paid in Bitcoin to unlock the unwanted encryption.

Google’s futuristic new campus

The Verge:

Google’s grand plans for a futuristic new campus in the North Bayshore district of Mountain View, CA may finally become a reality thanks to a new real estate deal struck with LinkedIn. According to the Silicon Valley Business Journal, the two tech companies came to an agreement on a property swap that puts to rest a longstanding feud over lucrative current and unused square footage in Silicon Valley. Google paid $215 million for the swap, while LinkedIn paid $331 million, the report states.

In a nutshell, Google’s plans for their campus were put on hold last year when the Mountain View city council voted to award a huge tract of land to LinkedIn instead of Google. With the swap, Google now has the property it needs to push forward.

Politics aside, follow the various links to see pictures and video of this planned campus. To me, it’s like a science fiction fantasy. It will be interesting to watch this unfold. Looks like Apple, Facebook and Google will...

The patent covers wireless communications circuitry that operates in long-range communications bands such as cellular telephone bands and, among the images accompanying the patent filing, is an illustration of a laptop.

Cellular modems in PC laptops have become commonplace. A Mac laptop with built-in cellular data would allow you to be connected all the time.

LaCie Rugged RAID and SanDisk Connect Wireless Stick...

As great as Apple’s tablets, smartphones and computers are, nothing’s perfect. All hardware eventually fails. Your iPhone or MacBook can get lost or stolen. Files can be corrupted. If any of these things happen at a time when backing your data up to the cloud isn’t an option, you’re gonna have a bad day. For a guy like me, who travels as he works, one bad day’s worth of lost data can add up to a ton of lost revenue.

That’s why I always pack some additional hardware to make sure that I can back up my files, no matter where I roam. And if the external drives I rely on also allow me to bring a long a whack of music and movies to keep me occupied while I’m on a plane or train? All the better! Depending on whether I bring my 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display or my 9.7-inch iPad Pro with me, you’ll find one of two backup solutions jammed into my backpack: LaCie’s Rugged RAID 4TB for my laptop, or SanDisk’s 200GB Connect Wireless Stick to use with my iPad and iPhone.

How to use Siri with your Apple Watch

Siri has proven to be extremely useful for iPhone users. I’m not as certain Apple Watch users are taking full advantage of it. But they should. Apple’s personal assistant can send your messages, place calls, get directions, and more using Apple’s smartwatch.

To get started, on your paired iPhone, tap Settings > General > Siri and make sure that Siri is activated. On your Apple Watch, tap Settings > General > Siri and make sure that Hey Siri is on. You also need to connect your Apple Watch or paired iPhone to the Internet using Wi-Fi or cellular data. 

(Yep, you’ll need an iPhone and Apple Watch combo to use Siri on your smartwatch. That’s one of the common complaints about the Apple Watch. We’ll see if Apple addresses the issue when their second generation smartwatch arrives. I predict we’ll see it announced in September or October.)

They offer true-color light output and charging dock for recharging iPhones and iPads with a Lightning connector. With the additional USB port the tLights can also recharge other tablets and most smartphones.

The tLights feature the latest LED technology with a CRI (Color Redding Index) of 90, which is close to the perfect light – sunlight with a CRI of 100. This means great color authenticity and a stable and bright light providing a great reading experience without getting tired eyes. Both tLights feature dimmers to adjust light output (20-100%) to a maximum of 600 lumens (7W) for the S3x and 700 (10W) lumens for the S3.

7 things you shouldn't do while playing Pokémon...

Most mobile games can be played quietly and anonymously in the privacy of your own home, cubicle, train seat, or bathroom stall—but Pokémon Go isn’t that kind of game. With physical movement as a primary gameplay mechanic, the Nintendo favorite is getting millions of people out and about and exploring their neighborhoods.

Obviously, there’s good in this: People are walking more, socializing with mostly-friendly strangers, and even overcoming anxiety and depression by leaving the house. All of those are tremendous benefits, and it’s awesome to see people getting so much out of the game.

German Legislation Would Require ‘Black Box’ Tech...

Germany is considering an interesting approach in the march towards regulating self-driving, or autonomous, vehicles. Reuters reported Europe’s largest economy is working on legislation that, among other things, would require cars with autonomous capabilities to include a “black box” that records, “when the autopilot system was active, when the driver drove and when the system requested that the driver take over, according to the proposals.” In this usage, “black box” is being borrowed from the airline industry, which uses effectively-indestructible devices  to record flight and other data in the event of a crash. Those airline boxes cost about $100,000 and have to survive substantially greater trauma than a car would ever endure, meaning the name would likely be the most they have in common. This is one regulatory approach that could be copied far and wide.

Opinion: iOS’ Control Center could learn a thing or...

I’m not going to get into the politics of who came up with which ideas first, or who steals ideas from the other, because quite frankly, both iOS and Android have borrowed heavily from one another over the years. I could just as easily head over to 9to5Google and highlight iOS features that I’d love to see in Android, and I probably will in the future.

For now, though, I’d like to focus on iOS, specifically Control Center. It’s a feature that’s been around for going on four generations, and although it has evolved over the years, it still has a long way to go as far as I’m concerned. Here’s a look at four lessons that iOS could learn from Android when it comes to Control Center functionality. more…

TMO Background Mode: Interview with Rogue Amoeba...

Paul Kafasis is the co-founder and CEO of Rogue Amoeba Software. His company specializes in stellar audio products for the Mac such as Audio Hijack, Loopback, Piezo and more. His early work with colleagues (2001) was with MacAmp, an MP3 player. That led to the founding of Rogue Amoeba in 2002 and Audio Hijack 1.0. Paul and his co-founders realized that audio was emerging as an important niche where his team had special talent. Paul starts off with the story about how they chose such a memorable name for the company and then explains the evolution of Audio Hijack, then the pro version, and now Audio Hijack 3. We chat about challenges for the Mac developer and why an app like this, and its siblings, are not found in the Mac App Store.

Apple Begins Rolling Out iTunes Match With Audio...

In May, Vellum's James shared an ordeal that many people were able to relate to. Apple Music had deleted music files from his computer. It's an issue that many of us have faced over the years. At the time, Apple noted that it didn't actually know what was causing this. But it appears, it has finally figured out the issue and patched it. Jim Dalrymple, reporting for The Loop: One of the biggest complaints about Apple Music over the past year was that it wouldn't properly match songs subscribers had in their existing iTunes libraries. That problem is being fixed by Apple. Apple has been quietly rolling out iTunes Match audio fingerprint to all Apple Music subscribers. Previously Apple was using a less accurate metadata version of iTunes Match on Apple Music, which wouldn't always match the correct version of a particular song. We've all seen the stories of a live version of a song being replaced by a studio version, etc. Using iTunes Match with audio fingerprint, those problems...
