An iPad filled with apps weighs more than one with...

This sound like the premise of a bar trick, but not so.

Why? Because data stored on flash drives has weight. The difference is almost infinitesimally minute, but it is there.
The extra weight comes from flash storage storing more data in memory. The transistors in flash memory distinguish between a 1 and a 0 by trapping electrons.

Apple to temporarily disable blood glucose tracking...

Apple is planning to temporarily disable blood glucose tracking in iOS 8's Health app, the company says in a new support document. It explains that the app is currently set to track glucose levels using mg/dL, a value adopted in the US and some other countries. But some regions, such as the UK and Australia, depend on mmol/L; the discrepancy can cause problems, even though iOS' underlying HealthKit platform supports both measurements....

YouGov poll shows what would-be iPad buyers are...

A nationally-representative YouGov poll commissioned by mobile app company FeedHenry found that increased storage tiers is the feature most are hoping the iPad Air 2 will offer in today’s event, followed by Touch ID and a slimmer, lighter form factor.

Apple increased the middle and upper iPhone storage tiers when it launched the iPhone 6, moving from 16/32/64GB to 16/64/128GB. The current iPad Air has four tiers: 16/32/64/128GB.

It looks like intending purchasers will get much of their wish-list. Touch ID appears a certainty, thanks to a...

Find My iPhone? Find Me! Lost Phone Feature Helps...


A woman whose car rolled 500 feet down an embankment near San Jose, California, was located through the Find My iPhone feature on her smartphone after spending 19 hours in the ravine where her Chevy Cruze ended up. The OnStar feature in her car triggered two calls to police, at 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. Monday, but neither pinpointed the location of her car. Police searched the area fruitlessly for hours. At 3 a.m. Tuesday, Vasquez's stepmother called Campbell police to report her missing.

Here’s why public WiFi is a public health hazard

Maurits Martijn, writing for Medium:

In his backpack, Wouter Slotboom, 34, carries around a small black device, slightly larger than a pack of cigarettes, with an antenna on it…Wouter removes his laptop from his backpack, puts the black device on the table, and hides it under a menu. A waitress passes by and we ask for two coffees and the password for the WiFi network. Meanwhile, Wouter switches on his laptop and device, launches some programs, and soon the screen starts to fill with green text lines. It gradually becomes clear that Wouter’s device is connecting to the laptops, smartphones, and tablets of cafe visitors.

On his screen, phrases like “iPhone Joris” and “Simone’s MacBook” start to appear. The device’s antenna is intercepting the signals that are being sent from the laptops, smartphones, and tablets around us.

Part of this is an education problem, teaching people how to be careful. But it’s foolish to think that any public WiFi connection is safe....

CBS follows HBO in targeting cord-cutters with $5.99...

Just one day after HBO announced that it would be offering a web-only subscription at some point next year, CBS has played leap-frog by announcing the immediate availability of a $5.99/month web & app subscription offering on-demand access to almost all content.

CBS All Access will offer subscribers thousands of episodes from the current season, previous seasons and classic shows on demand, as well as the ability to stream local CBS Television stations live in 14 of the largest U.S. markets at launch.

CBS All Access is available beginning today at CBS.com and on mobile devices through the CBS App for iOS and Android.

Cable companies have long shied away from offering access to popular, current programming without demanding that you sign-up to cable access first. But broadcasters now seem to be recognizing...

Panera Bread Set to Launch Apple Pay Oct 20

The restaurant chain Panera Bread will reportedly start supporting Apple Pay mobile payments from the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus on Monday, October 20. When iOS 8 was released last month, Apple said its new mobile payment system would go live some time in October, and it's looking more and more like we'll get an official launch date during today's special media event.

The Mac Observer Spin: Interest in the iPhone 6's Apple Pay feature seems pretty high. Maybe Apple will be the catalyst that gets mobile payments off the ground in the United States.

Facebook adds Safety Check feature to iOS app to...

Video has no commentary

Facebook has added a nifty new feature that hopefully you won’t need to use too often: notifications of nearby disasters, and a one-touch means of letting family and friends know that you’re ok … 

If the Facebook app detects that you’re in the general area of a disaster like an earthquake, the Safety Check feature provides an alert through the Notification Center and offers a choice of two buttons: one saying that you’re safe, the other saying you’re not in the affected area. Your friends then see a reassuring message in their newsfeeds.

If you’re with friends or family at the time, you can also mark them safe on their behalf.

What a cable-free HBO subscription could mean for...

Apple TV has never followed a predictable update path. Officially unveiled alongside the iPhone in January 2007, it has had just two revisions to speak of during its lifespan, and aside from a quiet silicon swap last year, there hasn’t been any movement on the Apple TV front since March of 2012.

But the industry around it hasn’t been nearly as stagnant. In the two and a half years since the third generation of Apple TV landed, we’ve seen a veritable explosion of streaming devices and services, with various sticks and boxes all promising to deliver high-definition content to our televisions. Apple TV has kept pace by adding channels and occasionally refreshing its software, but there’s one main problem: All of these boxes, up to and including Google’s new Nexus Player, pretty much do the same thing. Sure, some have a slightly better selection of channels and others play...

Apple to disable another Health feature as UK and...

Apple has decided to disable one of the features of the Health application, specifically the blood glucose tracking capability, until it can issue a fix for issues reported by users in the UK and Australia, CNET reported tonight. The feature will apparently be removed through an incoming software update (perhaps iOS 8.1, or possibly 8.0.3) while the company prepares a patch to remedy the problem.

While it’s true that the HealthKit framework supports measurement standards for both the United States and abroad, a bug that exists in the current version prevents users from manually entering or viewing blood glucose levels using anything other than United States measurements (mg/dL, or milligrams per deciliter) within the actual Health application. The UK and Australian...

Apple is reportedly planning to pull Fitbit's fitness trackers from its fleet of retail stores. Citing unnamed sources, Re/code reported that could begin pulling the devices soon.

It's pretty clear that Apple's HealthKit is going to reset the bar for success in this space, and Fitbit will lose its hard-won share if it doesn't jump on Apple's late-to-the-party bandwagon.

A San Jose police officer used Apple’s Find My iPhone service to track down and rescue Melissa Vasquez, a woman who had been trapped in a 500-foot South Bay ravine for 17 hours. According to a report by KGO-TV, officer David Cameron is to thank for locating the stranded driver. After Vasquez was involved in a car accident, OnStar reported her location to the police, but they were unable to find any evidence of the car or driver.

When Cameron, who says he’s known around his department for being a bit of a “tech geek,” searched her house, he found her iPad and realized that he could use Find My iPhone to locate Vasquez’s cell phone. Vasquez’s tablet was locked using a passcode, but it took Cameron only three guesses to...

Report: Apple will stop carrying Fitbits in its...

A new report suggests that Apple may stop selling Fitbit devices online and in their retail stores sometime soon. According to Re/code, who originally reported this story, the Fitbit dismissal will happen to make room for its own soon-to-launch wearable, the Apple Watch. Fitbit’s lineup of wearables track steps, workouts, and other health metrics, which the Apple Watch will also do.

Apple has yet to comment on this report, so it’s unclear why Apple is targeting Fitbit specifically—currently, the Apple Store carries other third-party wearable devices from Nike, Jawbone, Withings, and other brands. However, it appears that Apple and Fitbit may have had a rocky relationship as of late. Last week, Fitbit announced that the company had no current plans to integrate its fitness...

This move by the plaintiffs puts them in alignment with an earlier decision by Judge Lucy Koh of the federal district court in San Jose to throw out the settlement on the grounds that it wouldn't pay the workers enough. Attorneys for the defendants — Apple, Google, Adobe and Intel — subsequently appealed Koh's decision.

Apple’s Silicone Case for iPhone 6/6 Plus: Good...

Any case produced by Apple itself has to survive a fair amount of scrutiny. After all Apple makes the device the case is protecting. It has to work well in every way, from the out of box experience, to putting it on the device, to protecting the device it covers. Not surprisingly, Apple's iPhone 6 Silicone Case does stand up to scrutiny, assuming you're looking for a case that doesn't claim to take extreme punishment.

Report: Christian Bale in talks to play Steve Jobs...

Variety reports that sources have confirmed actor Christian Bale is in talks to play the role of Steve Jobs in the upcoming biopic based on Walter Isaacson’s official biography of the late Apple co-founder. Variety adds that insiders believe Bale will begin filming for the biopic this spring.

Bale, who can next be seen in Ridley Scott’s “Exodus: Gods and Kings,” is still negotiating for the Travis McGee pic “The Deep Blue Goodbye” at Fox. Sources tell Variety talks have taken longer then expected because Bale was not interested in doing a sequel while Fox wanted one.

Insiders say Bale would likely shoot “Jobs” in the spring and follow it up with ‘The Deep Blue Goodbye.”

HBO Go Will Go It Alone

HBO Go might just go it alone, according to CEO Richard Plepler, who made the remarks at Time Warner's investor day event on Wednesday. "In 2015, we will launch a standalone, over-the-top HBO service in the United States. We will work with our current partners. And we will explore models with new partners. All in, there are 80 million homes that do not have HBO and we will use all means at our disposal to go after them," Pleper said.

There are rumblings that Netflix will be reporting some nice earnings, which is probably excellent motivation for HBO to go after the cordcutting crowd. This is very exciting news for me personally, because I've been calling HBO customer service about once a month for like a year now and BEGGING them to let me pay directly instead of having to give more money to the Cable Service Which Must Not Be Named. It doesn't take long, but it looks like I'm going to get my way on this.

Hopefully my crusade for the last two seasons of The Muppet...

Apple accidentally leaks next-gen iPad Air 2, iPad...

The next-gen iPad information you wanted came a bit ahead of schedule.

According to The Verge and 9to5Mac, Apple accidentally revealed both of its new iPads: the iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 on its web site. An official user guide for iOS 8 in the iTunes Store has apparently had its screenshots updated ahead of schedule; both new iPads are pictured, and the images reveal each will have a Touch ID fingerprint sensor. Aside from the addition of Touch ID, it seems these latest iPads will look nearly identical to their predecessors. 9to5Mac first spotted the premature iPad screenshots. The full-resolution image is still sitting on Apple’s servers.

Apple could stop selling Fitbit accessories at retail

Apple may, in the near future, stop selling Fitbit products at its retail stores, sources claim. No explanation has been given, but it's speculated that the reason may be the Apple Watch, which is shipping early next year and will share similar functions, even if it's more expensive and not intended purely as a fitness device. So far Apple doesn't appear to be taking action against any other fitness trackers, but Fitbit controls nearly 70 percent of that market....

You are Apple’s greatest security challenge

TidBITS:

Hundreds of millions of customers use Apple products. I don’t know what the iCloud numbers are, but we are talking about a company that just sold 10 million iPhones in a weekend. Security complexity increases exponentially as fringe situations encompass millions of users. With Apple operating on that scale, the rules change.

Apple thus faces one of the most complex security challenges in society, and faces it at a scale only a handful of companies need to consider.

Users want security but few are willing to be inconvenienced by it. That puts Apple and other companies between the proverbial rock and a hard place.

Apple accidentally outs “iPad Mini 3” and “iPad Air...

Apple's iBooks listing has accidentally revealed information about its new tablets.

Apple

Well, there's that much less mystery about Apple's event tomorrow. An iBooks listing for an iPad user guide included some preview of both an "iPad Mini 3" and an "iPad Air 2," and given that the source is Apple itself, it seems safe to assume that these are the tablets Apple will announce.

The main addition revealed by this rare official leak is the presence of a TouchID fingerprint sensor on both models. As expected, neither tablet body appears to have changed much; this is going to be more of an internal refresh than an external one.

Poodle SSL 3.0 Flaw Poses Web Browser Security Threat

Google has discovered a 15 year old flaw in SSL 3.0, a security protocol that turns out isn't quite a s secure as originally thought, that could let remote attackers highjack Web browser sessions and gain access to personal data, like Web-based email. The flaw takes advantage of a browser's ability to fall back from the more secure TLS protocol to SSL where attackers can then gain access to session cookies on victim's computers.

The Mac Observer Spin: The tech world has been moving away from SSL in favor of TLS, and finds like this will only help push SSL to its inevitable demise.

Apple paid in excess of $1 million to stage its September 9th iPhone/Apple Watch announcement, according to newly-obtained records from the Foothill-De Anza Community College district. The publicity event was held at De Anza College's Flint Center for the Performing Arts, where the Mac was premiered in 1984, and the iMac was shown off in 1998. The records state that Apple paid De Anza a $500,000 "disruption fee," plus rental feels for campus buildings, and still more money to enforce security using more than 35 police officers from three departments....
