Malwarebytes introduces solution for Mac users

Malwarebytes, the anti-malware solution that's been in business since 2004, has acquired AdwareMedic, and as such now offers a solution for Mac users everywhere. 

In a blog post on Malwarebytes' site, AdwareMedic's creator Thomas Reed described his motivation to create security software for the Mac, as well has his decision to join Malwarebytes: 

“AdwareMedic quickly became a hit, even being recommended by countless Apple techs around the world.

Then, in March of this year, I was contacted by Marcin Kleczynski, CEO of Malwarebytes.

The timing could not have been better, and I’m pleased to say that The Safe Mac and AdwareMedic are now owned by Malwarebytes, and I’m now the Director of Mac Offerings at Malwarebytes.”

Apple releases updated iPod touch, adds improved...

Apple may not have done much with its iPod shuffle and nano models outside of changing the color offerings, but it beefed up the iPod touch in a big way this week.

The iPod touch’s camera is now on par with the iPhone 6 and iPad Air 2, going from 5 megapixels in the last generation to 8 in the new version. Apple also incorporated an iPhone M8 motion coprocessor for better activity-tracking and a new 64-bit A8 chip to make the unit that much faster. A new 1136 x 640 resolution Retina display rounds things out and makes the device that much more robust.

The new version of the iPod touch, which arrives with iOS 8.4 and access to Apple Music, now arrives in a...

Microsoft today released a new update to OneNote for iPhone that makes it a universal app, now OneNote for iOS. That means that the existing OneNote for iPad app is being replaced by a single, universal app that runs on both iPhone and iPad.

The benefit, aside from having a single version, is that the iPad app is gaining some recent features introduced in the iPhone app including a OneNote widget in the today view of Notification Center. iPad users will also notice a new “recent notes” section for notes made on either device, and landscape mode on the iPad now presents a column of page...

Apple releases updated iPod nano, shuffle models,...

Despite a three year hiatus between the last update, Apple gave the iPod a major overhaul on Tuesday.

Among these are the revamped iPod nano and shuffle models, which, like the new iPod touch, come in gold, dark blue, and pink colors.

Apart from the new colors, Apple hasn’t upgraded the hardware of the iPod nano since the 2012 rendition. The device arrives with the same 16 gigabytes of storage, but still supports video, FM radio and is available for a US$149 price tag.

The iPod shuffle still offers 2 gigabytes of storage and offers the same features as the previous versions. The unit is still designed for the price/fitness market, boasting no...

Apple embraced this with iOS 8 and the rollout of HealthKit, a framework which allows medical and health apps to share data with each other and your doctors with your permission. Apple’s open source ResearchKit took it a step further by allowing developers to turn apps into scientific health and medical research tests.

Siri and calling emergency services

Why does telling Siri to charge your phone call the police? Look to India. 

Earlier today The Verge pointed out that, if you use an iPhone to tell Siri, "Charge my phone to 100 percent," it will attempt to call emergency services (giving you a five-second grace period to cancel the call). This is true. DO NOT try it, as the police dislike being summoned to your home for no reason. Some have suggested that this behavior is a bug, while others guess that Apple has created a covert way to summon the authorities, should the caller be in a dangerous situation. That's clever, but I don't think that's what's going on. 

First, it's likely that Siri is responding to the word "phone" followed by a number. Remember, "phone" can be a verb and a noun. For example, if you tell Siri, "Charge my phone to 50 percent," it will attempt to call the number 50. So why does...

New iPod nano, shuffle won't sync Apple Music...

Our friends at iMore have pointed out that the new iPod shuffle and nano won't sync your Apple Music tracks. Only the latest iPod touch will do that. Why hinder the nano and shuffle this way? iMore's Serenity Caldwell makes a very likely guess:

"It's probably a record label requirement: In theory, you could sync an iPod shuffle or nano up with Apple Music tracks, then cancel your Apple Music subscription and continue rocking out to those 'copied' tracks forever."

I was surprised by this update because, frankly, I don't think the iPod is long for this world. The touch might have a little life left, but the nano and shuffle, well, don't.

Hands-on with Notes 4 in El Capitan

Apple’s Notes is reportedly one of the most popular apps on the Mac. Makes sense, since it comes with every Mac and it syncs between your Macs and iOS devices. It’s a lightweight app good for jotting things down.

I stopped using Notes a long time ago in favor of Evernote. I don’t think I’m going to drop Evernote anytime soon; I have too many notes saved in Evernote to completely abandon it. But I am interested in the new features in Notes 4 to see how it can fit into my workflow.

Jason Snell took a look at Notes 4 in his first look of the El Capitan public beta. Here, I’ll take a closer look at the changes and new features. This is beta software, so things in Notes 4 can change between now and the final release. This article will be updated to reflect any changes.

That flipbook of vacation photos that your old high school best friend posted on Instagram? That’s Flipagram’s work. Stitched-together video clips from camp that your kid shared to Facebook? Flipagram. But now the 1.5-year-old app wants people to see those video moments on its own turf, so it’s adding a new feature to lure you in: music.

Flipagram just inked deals with the major record labels and publishers to let its 30 million monthly active users add soundtracks to their videos. Universal, Sony, Warner, and coalitions like Merlin and The Orchard have all opened up their catalogs to Flipagram, so users can search for the latest and great song clips to attach to their ’grams.

A new report released on Wednesday by the Pew Research Center and the Knight Foundation found that 63 percent of American Facebook and Twitter users rely on the social networks to get their daily news. The last time a similar survey was conducted in 2013, 52 percent of Twitter users and 47 percent of Facebook users said they used social media to get their news fix.

This increase is not just attributed to younger generations, Pew clarified. The growing trend of using Facebook and Twitter as predominant news sources was seen in Americans of all ages, gender, races, education levels and incomes.

A Hulu intern just made a clever Apple Watch app

Hulu has come up with exactly the right kind of Apple Watch app, one that turns the wrist-based computer into a simple remote control.

The new app doesn’t try to do too much. You can’t browse the Hulu catalog from the watch, but the assumption is that you’ll want to use a proper remote for that anyway. Once you have a video stream up and running, the Watch app lets you pause the current video stream, rewind in 10-second increments, and toggle closed captioning.

For now, the app supports Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Chromecast, and AirPlay streaming to Apple TV. A prompt to select the playback device appears at launch and can be changed at any time through the app’s settings menu.

The iPod shuffle and nano lines got new colors but otherwise are the same internally with the 2GB and 16GB storage inside and same skeuomorphic UI for the nano. To me this is Apple saying the long goodbye to these products the same way the iPod classic was ushered out. Expect these to last as long as whatever inventory Apple decides to build.

The new iPod touch is much more interesting. It got the same new color palette and otherwise is the same externally – except losing the unpopular Loop strap. However, internally it gets supercharged with...

Is the new iPod touch a harbinger of a 4-inch iPhone...

So after three years, we’ve finally got a new iPod touch. After kicking around with iPhone 4S-era speed, the iPod touch has leaped right over the iPhone 5 and now sports the A8 processor and M8 motion coprocessor of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. And at $199 for a 16GB model, it grants access to demanding apps and games for a very good price.

The new iPod touch, for all its advancements, still sports the same 4-inch Retina display as the iPhone 5, 5s, and 5c. And it makes me wonder if maybe, just maybe, it’s the first hint that we’ll be seeing an updated 4-inch iPhone–let’s call it the 6c–this fall.

The new iPods that Apple announced this morning were outed a couple of weeks ago, but the insides of the new iPod Touch were still a surprise: Apple put an A8 in the new Touch, the same SoC that powers the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.

The iPod Touch is quite a bit smaller than either iPhone, though, and preliminary benchmarks suggest that the chip's speed has been reduced somewhat to keep the temperature down and the battery life up. Geekbench tests run by TechCrunch say the A8 in the Touch is running at about 1.1GHz, down from 1.4GHz in both iPhones. They also confirm that the A8 includes 1GB of RAM, the same amount as the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.

The scores in that Geekbench run suggest that the slowed-down A8 is ...

While the music industry has vocally criticized streaming services for paying low figures back to copyright-holders, Young claims, “It’s not because of the money.”

Apple updates iPod touch line: 64-bit, 8MP camera,...

Apple surprised nobody today by updating the iPod touch line. As we reported late last week, an iPod update was widely expected yesterday, but apparently the company chose to make fools of all Apple bloggers. While the changes to the iPod nano and iPod shuffle were strictly cosmetic -- they now match the revised colors for the iPod touch -- the internals of the iPod touch were definitely given an update.

The new iPod touch uses the 64-bit A8 microprocessor, and there's an M8 motion coprocessor built in as well. The rear camera has a full 8 megapixel resolution, and the device is available in capacities of 16, 32, 64 and an all-new 128GB. The 16GB model is just US$199, with the 32GB weighing in at $249, 64GB at $299, and 128GB at $399. 

The devices ship with iOS 8.4 and Apple Music, making it possible for the...

All three iPods will now come in gold, dark blue, and pink, but the iPod touch is the only model to get new features under the hood. The touch will come with iOS 8.4 and access to Apple Music, which isn’t surprising, but the new version also adds a 128GB model to the lineup for the first time for $399. A 16GB touch will run you $199, a 32GB for $249, and a 64GB for $299. All models are available in-store today, with Apple throwing in two-day shipping for free if you’d rather buy online.

The iPod lives! Mid-year bump adds new colors and...

The iPod lineup hasn't gotten a significant hardware update since 2012, if you can believe it. For the Shuffle and the Nano, this isn't a big deal; dedicated music players stopped evolving pretty much the minute the iPhone started to go mainstream. For the iPod Touch, it was more unfortunate—it's a fully-fledged iDevice and one of the cheapest entry points into the ecosystem, so saddling it with the same Apple A5 SoC as the iPhone 4S for three years was rather unfortunate.

That changes today. Apple has just updated the entire iPod lineup, including new colors for the (essentially unchanged) Nano and Shuffle as well as a significant internal overhaul for the iPod Touch. It picks up a 64-bit chip and an 8MP camera, both of which should make it run iOS 9 and future versions much better than the previous Touch.

All the new iPods come in Space Gray, silver, gold, pink, blue, and red enclosures. The gold color, new to the iPod lineup, looks like...

Chevron announces first Apple Pay-compatible gas...

The very first Apple Pay-compatible Chevron gas pumps have arrived.

The company announced via Twitter that gas pumps that accept NFC payment support – including Apple Pay – have been installed at a gas station on San Ramon Valley Blvd., meaning nearby iPhone 6, 6 Plus and Apple Watch owners can pay at the pump without reaching for their wallet. More locations will follow suit, but Chevron did not offer a rollout timeline. The company’s tweet did say, “Cupertino coming soon!” in reference to Apple’s nearby campus.

Chevron first revealed plans to incorporate Apple Pay into gas pumps back in December. At the time, Chevron said it was working directly with Apple on the...

Apple releases new, faster, iPod touch with 8MP...

 

As we reported this morning, Apple has today launched a new version of the iPod touch, featuring a 64-bit A8 CPU. This breaks a long run of neglect for Apple’s cheapest iOS device, which last received an update way back in 2012. It will be a huge leap in performance over the previous iPod touch which featured an A5 SoC. Both the front and back cameras have been improved, with the back shooter now featuring 8 megapixels of resolution.

The new iPod touch is also available for the first time in gold matching the iPhone and iPad in addition to new dark blue and pink case options. The iPod touch is also getting a storage bump at least at the higher end — there is now a $399 128 GB model. The base $199 iPod touch remains the same with...

Apple is reportedly 'close' to securing...

After some earlier setbacks, Apple may once again be firming up plans for its long-rumored streaming TV service.

Sources tell the New York Post that the major broadcast networks are “close” to agreements with their local station affiliates, allowing the networks to negotiate with Apple on the affiliates' behalf. This would remove a major obstacle for Apple, as it wouldn't have to go around the country striking deals with every affiliate to carry channels like ABC, CBS, Fox, and NBC.

Apple Store down, new iPod models expected today

As of early this morning, the Apple Store web site is down.

The reason for this is most likely iPod-related.

The current rumor is that Apple will be launching its new iPod units. The new models are expected to feature an A8 processor, 8 megapixel camera and arrive in new dark blue, pink and gold colors available across the lineup.

The new models were leaked last week when resources within iTunes 12.2 were studied. It is expected that the iPod touch will get a storage bump with a new 128 GB option for $399. The base iPod price is expected to remain unchanged with the 16 GB SKU priced at US$199. Also notice that the Loop wristband is not visible in the corner of the iPod...

Uninstalling Google's Photos app doesn't turn off backup sync, meaning photos taken with Android devices could be saved to the company's cloud storage, even if the user doesn't intend to store them there, Google acknowledged on Tuesday. The issue came to light last week, when a BizJournals editor reported finding hundreds of family photos he had deleted from his phone stored in Google Photos -- even though he had uninstalled the Google Photos app.

Report: Android Wear Smartwatches to Get Together


It's rumored that the next version of Android Wear, reportedly scheduled for release in August, will bring tap gestures and watch-to-watch communications. The update initially was scheduled for launch on July 28th. "For now, these features simply bring parity between Android Wear and watchOS," said IDC analyst Jitesh Ubrani. These new features "ultimately lay the groundwork for future messaging platforms," but neither platform "offers a compelling use case or killer app, as they're both essentially first-generation products," he added.

First, Swift, who was already vocal in the past regarding streaming services, penned a blog post knocking down Apple’s decision to offer a free, three-month trial without paying artists for streams during that period. Apple responded to Taylor’s decision to hold back her music from the service and it was thought the blog post eventually inspired Apple to reverse its decision. Swift responded to Apple’s decision positively and announced her latest record would be available on...

Week of Apple Watch Stands: WATCHme on Kickstarter

This week I'm looking at some Apple Watch charging stands; this started yesterday with the Griffin WatchStand and I'll be reviewing the new Nomad Watch Stand tomorrow. Today I thought it would be fun to take a trip to Kickstarter, where a young French designer is looking for funding for a humorous and completely different take on the Watch charging stand: WATCHme

The chubby little WATCHme is the brainchild of Vivien Muller, and it's unlike any other Watch charging stand I've seen. It looks like a short and stout little monster with a large "eye" where the disk of the Apple Watch charger sits. Pop your Watch onto the WATCHme, and it gets even more fun. If WATCHme reaches a stretch goal, Muller plans to hire a developer to create an app with a mischievous little eye that...

Mozilla said Flash would remain on the Firefox blocklist until Adobe fixes all known vulnerabilities.
