Apple Watch relies on PIN, constant skin contact to...

The Apple Watch will use a unique system to authorize NFC mobile payments, reports say. Normally Apple Pay is authorized via Touch ID, but there's no such sensor on the Watch. Instead, when someone puts on the device for the day, they'll have to enter a PIN to authorize transactions. The sensors on the bottom of the watch can detect skin contact, and once that's lost, a person will have to re-enter their PIN....

Apple’s second wave of iPhone 6 sales starts Sept....

When Apple announced its new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus models earlier this week, it only provided preorder and shipping info for a handful of initially launch countries. The company has now confirmed a second wave of iPhone 6 launches for a long list of countries will kick off on September 26.

Many of Apple’s websites abroad are now listing the September 26 order date. Here’s 15+ countries we’ve found so far:

Switzerland, Italy, New Zealand, Sweden, Netherlands, Spain, Denmark, Ireland, Norway, Luxembourg, Russia, Austria, Turkey, Finland, Taiwan, Belgium, Portugal

Millions of Gmail Users Victims of Latest Password...


About 5 million Gmail usernames and passwords have been published on a Russian bitcoin security forum as a text file. Sixty percent of the 4.93 million credentials in the file were valid, claimed the poster, who used the online handle "tvskit." The information reportedly was dumped on several Russian cybercrime forums and shared through a variety of peer-to-peer services. "I wouldn't be surprised to hear that the accounts were breached using some sort of phishing attack targeting Google users," said SilverSky's Christopher Martincavage.

Big-name analysts seemed satisfied with what they saw and heard during Apple’s launch of the iPhone 6, Apple Watch and Apple Pay, reports Forbes. Summarising investor notes from a dozen major companies, Chuck Jones found the general feeling was that Apple had delivered what was expected.

The overall average of AAPL stock price targets was $109, against the current price of just over $100. Analysts pointed to a range of factors in forming their views, among them … ...

Nearly 5 Million Gmail Passwords Dumped to the...

Over 4.9 million Gmail user names and passwords were posted on a Russian Bitcoin forum earlier this week, posing a potential security headache for a lot of people. Google said there wasn't any data breach, which means the logins were likely culled from other sites.

The Mac Observer Spin: Posting user names and pasword lists online is a pretty crappy thing to do and sometimes the Internet is a pretty crappy place. This Gmail password leak is a great reminder to avoid using the same login information on more than one site.

The origin of the iPhone 6’s new milky way wallpaper...

For most people, the decision of which wallpaper to choose for your iPhone is just a matter of going through your photo library to find the right picture. For Espen Haagensen, however, the process just became a whole lot easier. Starting September 17th, a photo of the Milky Way he captured while in Norway will become the default wallpaper in iOS 8, software that will be downloaded hundreds of millions of times by users all around the world.

Two days later, on September 19th, countless iPhone 6 and 6 Plus units will begin shipping out to customers, all preloaded with the same shot. I talked to Espen about the photo’s origins and how it feels to be so prominently featured by Apple.

Smartphone sizes, from tiny to ludicrous. Click to embiggen! At 100 percent, the devices here should be pretty close to actual size on most monitors. Aurich Lawson

It’s nearing the end of the year, and that means new iPhones are afoot. Apple has stuck to a September or October release date for its latest smartphones since 2011, and the most noteworthy thing about this year’s Apple harvest is that the iPhones are bigger—like, almost Galaxy Note-style bigger, at the top end.

From 2007 to late 2012, iPhones all had a single display size: 3.5 inches. The exterior and interior were revised a number...

Release of iPhone 6 delayed in China

On Wednesday, Apple told China’s three big state-owned mobile service providers that it would not release the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in mainland China on Sept. 19, when sales start elsewhere. The carriers had already booked advertising campaigns for the phones.

Last year, Apple released both the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c in China on the same day it was released in the US. It’s not clear how long the lag will be for the iPhone 6 release.

Sketchy supply-chain report says production gearing-...

DigiTimes is citing supply-chain sources as stating that Apple is gearing-up its iPhone 6 production plans for an anticipated 80 million sales by year-end. If achieved, it would represent 33 percent year-on-year growth.

Makers in the iPhone supply chain are preparing parts and components for production of up to 80 million units of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus before year-end 2014, according to sources at Taiwan-based iPhone supply chain.

As ever with DigiTimes, the number should be taken with a large dose of salt: while manufacturers will be aware of their own order-books from Apple, and thus have some degree of insight into the company’s expectations for early sales, it’s a stretch to extrapolate from that to sales targets up to the end of the year.

We won’t have too long to wait for a good indication of how well...

External Link: The Apple Watch from a Watch Guy’s...

Many tech watchers and pundits have weighed in on the recently announced Apple Watch, but almost all the talk has been about it as an interactive device, focusing on features and capabilities. Benjamin Clymer has a different take: the founder of HODINKEE, a publication devoted to wristwatches and wristwatch aficionados, evaluated the Apple Watch, not surprisingly, as a wristwatch. His opinion: “[…] though I do not believe it poses any threat to haute horology manufactures, I do think the Apple Watch will be a big problem for low-priced quartz watches, and even some entry-level mechanical watches. In years to come, it could pose a larger threat to higher end brands, too.” A fascinating look at the watch market and the Apple Watch’s place in it.

Party of two: 4 slightly cheesy but still endearing...

When my boyfriend sent me an email invite to “join him” as his partner on a relationship app called Couple, I thought he
was joking. A cutesy messaging app isn’t exactly his style, so I let the email sit in my inbox for a few days. Then he nudged me and asked when I was
going to download Couple. He was serious.

I kept the sarcastic comments to myself and finally succumbed to being the other half of his digital pair. I laughed and rolled my eyes at Couple’s
features, like a “thumb kiss” where you touch thumbs to your screen at the same time, and the “thinking of you” button that sends your partner a message
letting them know you are doing just that.

Comments on Apple “newest” digital device

Here are some comments on the announcement of Apple’s “newest” digital device:

“I was so hoping for something more.”

“Great just what the world needs.”

“Heres an idea Apple – rather than enter the world of gimmicks and toys, why dont you spend a little more time sorting out your pathetically expensive line up? Or are you really aiming to become a glorified consumer gimmicks firm?”

“I still can’t believe this! All this hype for something so ridiculous! Who cares? I want something new! I want them to think differently!”

“Why oh why would they do this?! It’s so wrong! It’s so stupid!”

“Come on everyone, y’all are saying it sucks before you have even held it in your hand.”

“The reason why everyone’s dissapointed is because we had our hopes up for this incredible device.”

Pretty typical commentary.

Yesterday Apple and U2 announced that the band’s newest album Songs of Innocence would be given away to all 500 million iTunes customers for free. Most users likely assumed that they’d have the option of downloading the album if they wanted it, but that’s not exactly how it worked out.

In order to claim the record for “biggest album launch in history,” U2 and Apple needed every single iTunes customer to own the album, so they added it to everyone’s account as a purchase automatically. If you go into your iTunes purchase history right now, you’ll see it there. There’s another place you might see it as well, even though you weren’t expecting it…

That's why I wasn't really excited when Tim Cook and Bono told me I could download the band's new album, Songs of Innocence, for free on iTunes as part of Apple's big product event yesterday. Thanks but no thanks, fellas.

I forgot that the album release even happened within an hour of leaving the Flint Center yesterday, which is why I was surprised to see it show up in my iTunes library all by itself today.

Remember when Apple announced during WWDC that Siri in iOS 8 would be getting several cool new features, including the ability to figure out what song is playing with a music recognition engine powered by Shazam? In the recent GM build of iOS 8, the feature has been removed completely. Apple notes that it should be back in time for the general public release of the OS, however.

In earlier betas, Siri...

After 30 years, Macworld is no longer a magazine

Fast Company:

In January of 1984, Apple announced the Macintosh. Among the many things which made the launch memorable was the fact that the brand-new computer was accompanied by a brand-new magazine, IDG’s Macworld. Thanks to a deal hashed out by IDG’s David Bunnell and Apple’s Steve Jobs, the first issue debuted the same day that the Mac did, which means that there’s never been such a thing as a Mac market that wasn’t covered by Macworld.

Sadly, that long run is about to end.

The 800lb gorilla of Mac publishing just became a 4lb chihuahua. Sad day.

T-Mobile unveils expanded WiFi calling capabilities...

During its Uncarrier 7.0 event this afternoon, T-Mobile revealed a handful of new announcements as part of its ongoing quest to lead the mobile industry. Firstly, CEO John Legere announced that every phone it sells from here on out will be capable of WiFi calling and texting. The company says that anyone who does not currently have a phone capable of WiFi calling can upgrade to a supported phone with the carrier’s Jump program. As the name implies, WiFi calling and texting allows you to make calls and send texts over your WiFi network, as opposed to over the cellular connection.

T-Mobile calls these changes the “WiFi Unleashed” campaign and says that all of its devices, even low-end phones, will support it. This, of course, includes the recently...

Xsan volume disconnects

Forums: Troubleshooting

So, we migrated from Snow Leopard on a 2009 xServe to a Mac Mini running Mavericks Server and Xsan 3.1. We're using a SanLink2 for our fibre channel connection and also for the metadata network.

All went smoothly, except that we discovered that moving largish files from the single volume (about 30TB) will cause that volume to unmount.

The logs look like everything is fine until the following sequence:

There isn't much difference between these three cases — they're basically rubber bumpers with an attached plastic backing. Scene Plus offers a 3D pattern on the back of its case to justify the $5 price jump from Scene Grip. For that same price, Defense 720 has two pieces — in addition to back and side…

Apple stole the concept behind its "Perspective" ad -- used to introduce yesterday's press event -- from OK Go, says band manager Andy Gershon. The Apple video features a camera tracking around a white room where shapes turn into text when seen from the right angle. OK Go, though, released a video in June for the song "The Writing's On the Wall," based on the same concept. More importantly, Gershon notes that the band met with Apple in April to pitch the concept as a potential collaboration....

Megan Geuss

Battery life is just one of the many question marks surrounding the Apple Watch announcements yesterday, but early reports indicate that it's not going to be much better than what's already available. Re/code reports that the watch currently lasts "about a day." While Apple is reportedly working to improve that figure before the watch launches in 2015, buyers should expect to charge the watch every night along with their iPhones.

The "hands-on" sessions available to most media representatives were decidedly hands-off, but we're also hearing more details from journalists who were given individual sessions after the show. Yahoo'...

A watch guy’s thoughts on the Apple Watch

HODINKEE:

I do not believe it poses any threat to haute horology manufactures, I do think the Apple Watch will be a big problem for low-priced quartz watches, and even some entry-level mechanical watches. In years to come, it could pose a larger threat to higher end brands, too. The reason? Apple got more details right on their watch than the vast majority of Swiss and Asian brands do with similarly priced watches, and those details add up to a really impressive piece of design. It offers so much more functionality than other digitals it’s almost embarrassing. But it’s not perfect, by any means. Read on to hear my thoughts on the Apple Watch, from the perspective of a watch guy.

Great perspective from “the other side of the fence” – how does the Apple Watch fit into the watch market? Thanks to Jared Earle for the link.

Apple lowers prices on iCloud drive, lets you buy a...

Today Apple announced a price cut for iCloud storage and a new 1TB tier for power users. Still, the price drops were not as dramatic as some might have hoped, and Apple remains undercut by rivals like Google and Dropbox.

Apple gave details about its price cuts back at its developer conference in June, but today those prices included two higher-tiered plans for people who want 500GB and 1TB of storage on the company's servers. On its website, Apple says that users of iCloud Drive will continue to get 5GB for free, and pricing starts at 20GB for $0.99 per month, 200GB for $3.99 per month, 500 GB at $9.99 per month, and 1TB for $19.99 per month. (Tiers were originally priced at $20 a year for 10GB, $40 a year for 20GB, and $100 a year for 50GB). Critics of Apple's earlier, more limited cloud storage service had long pushed for an updated storage pricing scheme as...

On Wednesday, Dutch consumer electronics maker Philips and its subsidiary Woox Innovations announced the new Fidelio M2L headphones, which plug directly into the Lightning port on Apple devices. The headphones are the first third-party audio accessory to use the Lightning port, and they may have even beaten Apple to the punch. Apple talked about Lightning-connected headphones at WWDC in June and bought headphone maker Beats earlier in the summer, leading some to speculate that such an accessory was in the works.

In June, Apple expanded its Made for iPhone (MFi) program for third-party accessory developers to include the...
