The truth about Apple Pay

From an article I wrote for Fortune:

The fact that none of these guys brought up or seemed at all concerned about cybertheft may tell you more than any headline that contains the words Apple, Pay and Fraud.

There’s too much fear-mongering going around these days.

Apple releases security update for Yosemite 10.10.2...

Apple has released a new security update for OS X Yosemite, and a separate version of the update for Macs released in early 2015, including the new 13″ MacBook Pro with Force Touch trackpads and the upcoming MacBook.

The update is available for users running OS X 10.10.2 in the Updates tab of the Mac App Store, or as a standalone installer at the links above. Users on the public beta of OS X 10.10.3 apparently do not need the update, since the newer operating system likely already includes fixes for the problems addressed by this release.

Apple has not yet released the update notes to explain what has been fixed.

iPhoto has also been updated to improve compatibility with the upcoming Photos app that replaces...

This may be behind the reason that Apple acquired Beats and its associated streaming music service last year.

As of now, revenue from music streaming is now overshadowing CD sales in the US, according to new data published by the Recording Industry Association of America on Thursday, signalling a sea-change in favor of services like Spotify, Pandora, and Beats Music.

Music streaming revenues from 2014 totaled US$1.87 billion, up 29 percent year-over-year, while CD sales fell 12.7 percent to US$1.85 billion, the RIAA said. The streaming category includes not just standard Internet radio but also...

Satechi GoMate: Saving your iPhone from accidental...

Satechi GoMate. Photo for Apple World Today by Steve Sande, ©2015, All Rights Reserved

Satechi has a great idea for anyone who spends time around water with their iPhone, whether it’s a day at the beach, trout fishing on your favorite stream, or paddling a kayak on the local pond. It’s called the GoMate (US$19.99, affiliate link) and it’s a waterproof case for any iPhone except the iPhone 6 Plus.

Basically, you can think of GoMate as fancy Zip-loc bag with some additional features that make it perfect for fun in the sun (or rain). The GoMate comes in three colors — orange, black and white — and all you need to do to get full IPX8 waterproof protection in up to 20 feet of water is to slide your iPhone in top first with the screen facing the clear material, squeeze the “zipper” closed to ensure watertightness, and then fold over the Velcro™ tab to ensure that your phone is locked in. There’s an included...

Apple reportedly cracks down on antivirus apps from...


Searching for ‘antivirus’ now only shows games or Find My iPhone-esque apps.

Apple has seemingly decided to crack down on antivirus and antimalware apps, removing them from the App Store. Although there has been no official statement from Apple on a policy change, Apple’s loose guidelines allow them to pull pretty much anything at any time, particularly something like antivirus which has questionable utility within the sandboxed iOS environment of iPhones and iPads.

One casualty of the removal is Intego’s VirusBarrier, which claims that this takedown was not specific to its product with Apple deciding the entire category of antivirus products is now off-limits.

Macs not vulnerable to BadUSB attack

TidBITS:

“The new MacBook’s single port comes with a major security risk,” proclaims The Verge. Gizmodo took The Verge’s story a step further with, “The NSA Is Going to Love These USB-C Charging Cables.” So what’s the big deal, and is there any fire behind all this hot air?

These articles are pure clickbait.

As always, when it comes to Macs and security, always wait for Rich Mogull to weigh in before going off half cocked. I’m looking at you, Tech Media.

As a photographer, I’ve been thrilled to see iPhones become compelling replacements for standalone point-and-shoot cameras. Our world has improved in both measurable and immeasurable ways from widespread, immediate access to quality photography; the images documenting our lives are more compelling and numerous than ever before.

But professional photographers toting DSLRs now struggle to stand out from amateurs with iPhones. The Chicago Sun-Times infamously fired its entire photography department in favor of using images from iPhones and wire services, a move...

Five ways to fund your iOS or OS X app addiction

I enjoy apps and can’t get enough of them. I’m always installing the latest new apps or app updates just to check them out. Though fun, these impulse purchases can get expensive. Over the years, I’ve adopted several reliable methods to help fund my iOS and OS X app addiction.

Sign up for beta access

Many app developers run beta programs that allow you test out apps that are under development. You get the app for free under a non-disclosure agreement and provide feedback to developers. It's a win-win situation for app lovers -- not only do you get access to unreleased versions of apps, you also get to play a critical role in the app development process. Readdle, Omni Group and others have beta programs.

Analyst predicts Apple streaming TV service to be...

No one’s quite sure how much an Apple streaming/Web TV service would cost per month, but guesses are being made.

Rod Hall of J.P. Morgan issued a note to investors on Wednesday, in which he said a US$40-per-month price tag for a subscription TV service would be too high.

In his view, the incremental cost of cable television service from a provider like Comcast, in addition to basic Internet, is less than US$40 per month. And so if Apple were to exceed the price of a basic cable package, there would be very little reason for consumers to “cut the cord” and go with a streaming-only solution from Apple.

Apple May Start Accepting Android Phones As Trade-Ins

HughPickens.com writes Bloomberg reports that according to a person with knowledge of the matter, Apple plans to start accepting non-Apple devices as trade-ins as the company seeks to extend market-share gains against Android smartphones. Apple is seeking to fuel even more iPhone 6 and 6 Plus sales after selling 74.5 million units in the last three months of 2014. Thanks to record sales, shipments of iPhones surpassed Android in the US with 47.7 percent of the market compared with Android's 47.6 percent. According to Apple CEO Tim Cook Apple "experienced the highest Android switcher rate in any of the last three launches in the three previous years." While Android phones don't hold their value as well as iPhones, it still makes sense for Apple Stores to accept them, says Israel Ganot, former CEO of Gazelle Inc., an online mobile device trade-in company. "Apple can afford to pay more than the market value to get you to switch over," says Ganot, "on the idea that you're going to fall...

I’d had an idea for a novel years earlier, but I’d initially done what almost everyone does when they have an idea for a novel: absolutely nothing.

FREAKish apps still have security holes

The web security exploit known as FREAK that I discussed last week was patched by Apple days after it was discovered two weeks ago. FREAK relied on a configuration issue in web servers combined with a flaw for backwards compatibility in many software libraries used to create a secure connection. But the patch only affected Apple’s operating systems—not all apps.

This highlights how apps can remain vulnerable due to developers’ choices. And Apple’s FREAK update only fixed the problem in iOS 8.2, OS X 10.8, 10.9, and 10.10. While I addressed part of that last week, there’s more to say.

Why Meerkat, the breakout app of SXSW, is more than...

AUSTIN—Meerkat is either the most annoying or groundbreaking app to strike it big at the South by Southwest Interactive festival. Live-streaming video, particularly on Twitter, has incredible potential: Meerkat has already been used to show the world a demonstration from Ferguson and a U.S. Secretary of Commerce swearing-in ceremony. But most of the 3-week-old iOS app’s 100,000-plus users are live-streaming complete garbage, like endless shaky clips of other people using Meerkat.

Early adopters, journalists, and brands love Meerkat because it’s a new platform to experiment with, but that doesn’t mean much in terms of longterm mainstream success. There’s a virtual graveyard full of apps that caught on at SXSW and promptly flamed out in the real world. But Meerkat has two advantages: More than two years of back-end development work to ensure high-quality live-streaming,...

iRig 2 unveiled

Just like its predecessor, the new iRig 2 plugs directly into the mini jack input of a mobile device. It lets musicians send an instrument signal to apps, such as IK’s AmpliTube, while also providing on-board output for real-time monitoring.

iRig 2 now comes with gain control, which lets users precisely adjust the input gain of their instrument to match their mobile device. This means that it can be customized to always provide the best sound, no matter what type of guitar, bass or line-level instrument or device is used.

Its new 1/4″ amplifier output, in addition to its traditional 1/8″ headphone output, allows iRig 2 to be plugged directly into a guitar amplifier or powered speakers without an adaptor. This helps to keep all cable connections tidy and organized.

A new FX/THRU switch allows iRig 2 to send either a wet or dry signal through the device. This means that guitarists can play live with an amplifier and use their mobile device with a tuner app, such...

13-inch Broadwell MacBook showdown: Should you go...

The 13-inch MacBook Pro and the 13-inch MacBook Air were once very different computers that served very different needs. One was bulkier but pretty fast and user-serviceable, while the other was thin-and-light to a fault, arriving with anemic low-power CPUs and GPUs, slow hard drives, and no easy means to upgrade.

In the last two-to-three years, that gap has narrowed substantially. The Air has become more powerful and less compromised, while the Pro has slimmed down and dumped features like user-replaceable RAM and its Ethernet jack. Both use Thunderbolt 2. Both use modern dual-core CPUs with some of Intel’s better integrated GPUs. They’re even priced in the same ballpark. What was once an easy recommendation has gotten more difficult.

Last year as part of our review process, we took a good long look at both laptops, picked...

Pronto and Peel join forces to turn your iPhone into...

Pronto smart remote. Photo for apple world today by steve sande, ©2015, all rights reserved

Have you ever wanted to turn your iPhone into a universal remote for your audiovisual gear, in particular your TV? That’s the idea behind Pronto (US$59.99), a combination of a small Bluetooth device and an app that wants to replace all of your remote controls.

About four years ago several of us at The Unofficial Apple Weblog were given the opportunity to test a universal remote system that worked with the iPhone. Called The Peel, the device used a pear-shaped infrared blaster called The Fruit in concert with a cylindrical Wi-Fi device called The Wire and the Peel Remote app. Ultimately, I wasn’t too impressed with the device as it took up space, dropped connectivity with the iPhone, and the app didn’t have much going for it.

Fast forward to 2015, and another former universal remote wannabe — Pronto (by Philips) — and Peel have...

Security firm finds small percentage of iOS apps...

Security company FireEye recently examined iOS and Android apps to determine whether they are vulnerable to the recently publicized FREAK attack. FREAK is a security flaw that allows a 2,048-bit SSL/TLS (Secure Sockets Layer/Transport Security Layer) encryption key to be downgraded to a weaker 512-bit key.

Via a man-in-the-middle attack, a hacker can use the FREAK expolit to intercept HTTPS connections and force the vulnerable clients to use the weakened form of encryption. Once compromised, the hacker potentially can access the sensitive data being transmitted via HTTPS.

Apple fixed the iOS FREAK vulnerability in iOS 8.2, but some apps remain vulnerable as they utilize their own OpenSSL libraries and connect to servers that remain unpatched. FireEye examined more than 14,000 popular iOS apps and found that 5.5% remain vulnerable to a FREAK attack.

On the iOS side, 771...

Apple’s iPhones became Flickr’s most popular camera phones in 2008 and most popular cameras overall soon thereafter, but even now, iPhones constitute only 9.6% of the photo-sharing site’s userbase. Despite the iPhone’s undeniable popularity, over 90% of photographers are using other cameras: Canon has a 13.4% share, Nikon 9.3%, Samsung 5.6%, and Sony 4.2%, with tons of other brands following close behind. While the cameras in phones continue to improve every year, they’re not the best tools for photography — they’re just the ones most people carry with them all the time.

Unscrupulous website adverts again redirecting some...

Website advertisement companies have found a way to circumvent the protections introduced in iOS 8 to stop users from being kicked to the App Store because of certain cleverly-coded JavaScript advertisements.

I am now experiencing this myself, and it makes browsing on the iPhone unusable. Browsing to websites such as Reddit and Reuters and others now automatically open the App Store. In many cases, there is no way for me to read the actual content on the pages. You can see this happen in the video above.

This flared up as a serious issue last year, when users found they were being taken to random App Store pages without granting any kind of permission…

In iOS 8 beta 2, Apple supposedly had remedied the issue: “Safari now blocks ads from automatically redirecting to the App Store without user interaction.”. However, it seems...

Protect, charge, and display your new Apple Watch

This week's roundup brings more new accessories for the Apple Watch. Will it be as lucrative for tinkerers and developers as its iOS predecessors? We're about to find out.

Actionproof

If you're thinking about getting an Apple Watch, you’ve got to worry about breaking it. The $29 Bumper is (natch) a bumper to protect your precious new iOS device from scrapes, bumps, and bruises without sacrificing your access to or use of the screen. It’s an Indiegogo project, but seems well on its way toward raising the amount needed to go into production.

Today during its latest Un-carrier event, T-Mobile announced new initiatives including brand new plans and pricing for businesses and a promise to all of its customers that it won’t increase prices. It’s also paying off bills for those locked into leasing plans on other carriers if they switch to T-Mobile. 

That “Un-contract” guarantee that prices won’t increase goes for all of its Simple Choice plans (including Simple Choice promotional plans) as long as you remain a T-Mobile customer with a qualifying plan. However, the carrier will only offer the guarantee to those with unlimited 4G LTE data for two years. The guarantee will automatically start for all existing customers on March 22nd....

Apple will introduce several major initiatives to ready its retail stores for the Apple Watch’s launch in April, according to sources briefed on the upcoming changes. Starting on April 10th, Apple will allocate 15 minutes per customer for in-store try-on appointments, using 10 or more try-on stations to manage what’s expected to be a steady flow of customers interested in having hands-on time with the Watch. While customers will not necessarily be required to have an appointment, they will be time-limited and guided during the hands-on experience. Additionally, they will be given the opportunity to place a reservation at the time of try-on for a particular model, and make a follow-up...

In addition, the company raised the curtain on Microsoft Passport, a programming system that IT managers, software developers and website authors can use for signing in to websites and applications. Passport uses Hello or a PIN to identify users, who then can access websites and apps deploying Passport without the need for a password.
