Apple retakes ‘world’s favorite company’ title as...

Apple has once more been dubbed the world’s favorite company after last year losing out to Google.

Each year, FutureBrand looks at the world’s 100 largest companies and asks 3,000 consumers and industry professionals to score them on a range of factors, and to explain how they feel about their preferred companies. The two top feelings respondents had toward Apple were passion and admiration. Apple was ranked highly for individuality, authenticity, innovation and thought-leadership.

However, it’s possible that Apple may have retaken the number one slot on a technicality …

Future Apple devices could theoretically sport...

Those of us who need glasses to see a laptop or TV screen clearly may one day be able to ditch our specs or contact lens thanks to a display technology that corrects vision problems, according to Technology Review. If the technology pans out, it would be great to see Apple incorporate it into Macs, iPhones, and iPads.

The technology — as described in a University of California, Berkeley report — uses algorithms to alter an image based on a person’s glasses prescription together with a light filter set in front of the display. The algorithm alters the light from each individual pixel so that, when fed through a tiny hole in the plastic filter, rays of light reach the retina in a way that re-creates a sharp image. Researchers say the idea is to anticipate how your eyes will naturally distort whatever’s onscreen—something glasses or contacts typically correct—and adjust it beforehand so that what you see appears clear...

Tinder Social Feeds More-the-Merrier Impulses


Tinder on Thursday announced the launch of Tinder Social, a new platform that helps users plan group nights out. The new platform will help users plan double dates or larger group events, creating new opportunities for people to make connections, the company said. Tinder took the platform for a test drive in Australia and found that users wanted a better way to add friends to their night out in real time. That led to a feature that lets users see who else in the Tinder community is headed out the same night.

Cycling Ride Pouch is a convenient accessory for...

I’m more a runner than a bike rider, but occasionally I’ll go for a long ride. WaterField Designs’ Cycling Ride Pouch makes it easy for iPhone-owning cyclists need to stop and remove the phone to check for message.

The pouch is a wallet-like bike toolkit with a clear iPhone window that allows riders to view and send texts or access apps without removing the phone.  

 

The $79 Cycling Ride Pouch is an upscale leather kit sized to fit into a cycling jersey pocket. It was inspired by the Velominati cycling collective's Rule #31—"Spare tubes, multi-tools and repair kits should be stored in jersey pockets." WaterField kicked it up a notch by adding cash, card and ID pockets and a padded iPhone slot.

The Pouch fits the exact dimensions of your jersey pocket and unzips on three sides to lie flat on the road when you need to make repairs. It's made of distressed, full grain leather and comes in black or...

Security researchers last year discovered what they described as ‘the worst Android vulnerability ever,’ able to infect a phone with malware simply by sending an MMS message to it. The vulnerability, dubbed Stagefright, didn’t even require people to open the message for their phone to be infected.

A Cisco researcher has now discovered a similar vulnerability in OS X and iOS, that could allow an attacker to gain access to your stored passwords and files simply by sending you a malicious image file …

Typinator still makes life easier for Mac users

Last year Ergonis Software celebrated the 10th anniversary of Typinator, their text expander. Though the tool for auto-typing text and auto-correcting typos systemwide across all Mac OS X application has been around awhile, it’s as vital as ever.

 

One of the most useful features of Typinator is the possibility to create expansions based on regular expressions. The HTML expansions aren't just text expansions that happen to contain HTML code, but rather a distinct expansion format that can be described in HTML. HTML expansions are useful for mail applications that support rich text messages, such as Apple Mail, Microsoft Outlook, Airmail, Thunderbird, as well as many web-based mail services like iCloud Mail and Gmail.

With an inclusion mechanism, Typinator's text expansions can execute external scripts and include their results in the expansion. The tool supports scripts written in in many different languages like AppleScript, Perl, PHP, Python, Ruby, and...

Three reasons to run your own Mac server

When it comes to technology, the word “server” might bring to mind, for some, a warehouse-sized room not unlike the end of Raiders of the Lost Ark, but with fewer crates and more racks of computers. For others it might be the cause of sweaty palms and glazed-over eyes. 

But servers don’t need to be mysterious or scary—after all, a server is just a computer that serves up information (and/or services) that can be accessed by other computers. Sure, it can get more complex than that, but it can also be a fairly simple and invaluable tool.

I run a Mac mini server on my home network for a handful of reasons that are fairly mundane, but all of which help at least provide some peace of mind, especially when I’m not in the house.

Rounding out the major launch countries, Pokémon GO has hit Japan — the home nation of Nintendo and Pokémon. Due to the major cultural significance of the company and intellectual property behind Pokémon, developers are expecting Pokémon GO to be a big hit in the region.

The launch in Japan also has knock-on effects for the player base in the rest of the world as it shows how the game plans to add advertising to the game for additional monetization. In Japan, 3000 McDonald’s outlets have been turned into sponsored Pokémon gyms where players can go and take over the area after battling.

How Apple and Facebook helped to take down...

It turns out that a couple of purchases on iTunes helped to bring down the mastermind behind KickassTorrents, one of the most popular websites for illegal file sharing.

Apple and Facebook were among the companies that handed over data to the U.S. in its investigation of 30-year-old Artem Vaulin, the alleged owner of the torrent directory service. Vaulin was arrested in Poland on Wednesday, and U.S. authorities seized seven of the site’s domains, all of which are now offline.

KickassTorrents was accused of enabling digital piracy for years, and investigators said it was the 69th most visited website on the entire Internet. It offered a list of torrent files for downloading bootleg movies, music, computer games and more, even as governments across the world tried to shut it down.

Apple faces lawsuit over AppleCare refurbished...

Apple has new legal drama to take care of—this time, over refurbished devices for AppleCare+ customers.

On Wednesday, Apple was hit with a class-action lawsuit from AppleCare+ customers who claimed that their refurbished devices were not so top notch. Under the AppleCare program, if Apple can’t fix a broken device, the company is contractually obligated to replace it with a device that is “equivalent to new in performance and reliability.”

Customers and lawyers have taken issue with Apple replacing damaged devices with refurbished devices because there’s no way a used device is as good as a new one, according to the lawsuit. This all stemmed from one AppleCare+ customer whose replacement third-generation iPad had a cracked screen after six months. The plaintiff claims that she was not made aware at the time that the AppleCare+ replacement policy meant...

Apple To Make $3 Billion From Pokemon Go

An anonymous reader writes from a report via The Guardian: We all know what Pokemon Go is, and we all know how successful it is. The Guardian is reporting that Apple will "rake in $3 billion in revenue from Pokemon Go in the next one to two years as gamers buy 'PokeCoins' from its app store, according to analysts." One pack of 100 PokeCoins costs about $1 in Apple's app store, but gamers can purchase as many as 14,500 PokeCoins for about $100. "We believe Apple keeps 30% of Pokemon Go's revenue spent on iOS devices, suggesting upside to earnings," Needham and Co brokerage analyst Laura Martin wrote in a client note on Wednesday. The game, which is also available on Android, had over 21 million active users after only being on the market for less than two weeks. It has also been rolled out in 35 countries since its U.S. debut. "Martin said Pokemon Go's ratio of paid users to total users was 10 times that of Candy Crush, the hit game from King Digital that generated more than $1...

Police 3D-Printed A Murder Victim's Finger To...

An anonymous reader quotes a report from The Verge: Police in Michigan have a new tool for unlocking phones: 3D printing. According to a new report from Flash Forward creator Rose Eveleth, law enforcement officers approached professors at the University of Michigan earlier this year to reproduce a murder victim's fingerprint from a prerecorded scan. Once created, the 3D model would be used to create a false fingerprint, which could be used to unlock the phone. Because the investigation is ongoing, details are limited, and it's unclear whether the technique will be successful. Still, it's similar to techniques researchers have used in the past to re-create working fingerprint molds from scanned images, often in coordination with law enforcement. This may be the first confirmed case of police using the technique to unlock a phone in an active investigation. Apple has recently changed the way iOS manages fingerprint logins. You are now required to input an additional passcode if your...

Chrome is "now rendered fully programmatically including iconography, effectively removing the ~1200 png assets we were maintaining before," Google noted. "It also allows us to deliver a better rendering for a wide range of PPI configuration."

Apple revenues revenues in China could be down 20 percent in China in its quarterly earnings report, according to research by Baidu (the “Chinese Google”) as noted by CNBC. Of course, the key word in that sentence is “could.”

It 70% to 80% marketshare in the Chinese search market and logs billions of location requests on Baidu Maps. Using these tools on Apple retail stores in mainland China, Baidu counted the volume of map queries of all the stores.

Baidu says that, in the last quarter of 2015, map query volumes were up 15.4 % year-on-year, which corresponded with a 14% rise in Apple's China revenue in that same period. However, in the first quarter of 2016, map queries declined 24.5% year-on-year, which was...

And you can continue to use your device with a case of your choice or no case at all, so you don’t have to put up with that bulky battery case all day.

National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden has come up with a concept iPhone case that could prevent the government from finding your location.

Smartphones, while incredibly useful, are also the “perfect tracking device,” Snowden wrote in a co-authored paper that covers his research.

Governments can monitor a user’s location through the radio signals from the phone and this can put journalists, activists, and rights workers in danger, he warned.

On Thursday, Snowden and hacker Andrew Huang presented a possible solution. It’s called “the introspection engine,” and it’s designed to alert the user if and when the phone’s radio signals are turned on.

Mobile devices have without a doubt brought convenience to the masses, but that benefit comes at a high price for journalists, activists, and human rights workers who work in war-torn regions or other high-risk environments. Now, NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden has designed an iPhone accessory that could one day be used to prevent the devices from leaking their whereabouts.

Working with renowned hardware hacker Andrew “Bunnie” Huang, Snowden has devised the design for what the team is calling the "Introspection Engine." For now, it's aimed only at iPhone 6 models, but eventually the pair hopes to create specifications for a large line of...

Apple Patches Stagefright-Like Bug In IOS

Reader Trailrunner7 writes: Apple has fixed a series of high-risk vulnerabilities in iOS, including three that could lead to remote code execution, with the release of iOS 9.3.3. One of those code-execution vulnerabilities lies in the way that iOS handles TIFF files in various applications (Alternate source: Fortune ). Researchers at Cisco's TALOS team, who discovered the flaw, said that the vulnerability has a lot of potential for exploitation. "This vulnerability is especially concerning as it can be triggered in any application that makes use of the Apple Image I/O API when rendering tiled TIFF images. This means that an attacker could deliver a payload that successfully exploits this vulnerability using a wide range of potential attack vectors including iMessages, malicious web pages, MMS messages, or other malicious file attachments opened by any application that makes use of the Apple Image I/O API for rendering these types of files," Cisco TALOS said in a blog post.

Swiftkey launches emoji-predicting Swiftmoji...

Remember a few months ago when Swiftkey, fresh off an acquisition by Microsoft, released a keyboard that would help you write like Shakespeare? Apparently, the company has realized that nobody wants to write like The Bard, they want to write with emoji. Today, they're fulfilling your dream of quickly finding just the right emoji. That is your dream, right?

Available on iOS and Android, Swiftmoji uses Swiftkey's word-prediction power to help you pick the perfect emoji. On Android, the keyboard works much like main Swiftkey keyboard, using your past typing history to predict what you'll type next. It just looks a little more whimsical, and has an ever-present row of emoji above the word predictions. As you type, that emoji-prediction row updates to show emoji related to what you just typed. It otherwise works much as Swiftkey does, with...

Sorry, you’ll have to wait another year for an “Apple Car.” An Apple-branded vehicle won’t be available in 2020, but has been pushed back to 2021, according to The Information.

Of course, Apple hasn’t confirmed any automotive plans, much less mentioned a release date. But that hasn’t stopped The Information from musing that “With seemingly another three to five years of research and development ahead, Apple's roadmap could change.”

In case you haven’t heard all the speculation about an Apple Car, I’ll give you an updated. The Wall Street Journal says Apple’s car project is code-named “Titan.” Bloomberg Business claims that Apple, “which has been working secretly on a car, is pushing its team to begin production of an electric vehicle as early as 2020.”...

The rise of platforms that let you shop strangers’ closets has been quick, but most of these social commerce sites are limited to women’s clothing and accessories. Five-year-old Poshmark, one of the biggest players, is becoming more egalitarian with the addition of men’s and children’s items this week.

Poshmark

Poshmark works by letting buyers customize their preferences to a T, so they’ll only see items they would actually buy, and in the right size. That personalization engine had to be radically overhauled to make sure the site’s existing users wouldn’t suddenly start seeing unwanted kids’ or men’s clothes in their main feed of recommended items.

This lawsuit, filed today in California, accuses Apple of not holding true to the AppleCare+ contract, which states that devices replaced as part of the program are the “equivalent to new in performance and reliability.” The lawsuit was initiated by Vicky Maldonado and Joanne McRight.

Both Maldonado and McRight allege that they had damaged devices replaced via AppleCare, but were given refurbished devices as opposed to new...

Smartwatch Shipments Fall For the First Time; Apple...

Emil Protalinski, reporting for VentureBeat: The smartwatch market has hit its first bump, and it's all Apple's fault. Vendors shipped a total of 3.5 million smartphones worldwide last quarter. This Q2 2016 figure is down 32 percent from the 5.1 million units shipped in Q2 2016, marking the first decline on record. It's important to note that smartwatches are just a subcategory of the larger wearable market. As such, these figures don't count basic bands sold by companies like Fitbit. Apple is thus the undisputed leader, even after the losses it saw in Q2 2016, and it could easily see a return to growth with the release of Watch OS 2.0. Apple's market share decreased 25 percentage points (from 72 percent to 47 percent) and it shipped less than half the smartwatches (1.6 million). But the company still holds almost half the market, with every other vendor shipping fewer than a million units.

Apple ID and iTunes purchases lead to arrest of...

Bit torrent sites are very popular with those who don't wish to pay for copyrighted video, music, and apps, which is why law enforcement officials rightly try to shut them down and put those responsible for running the sites in jail. iTunes purchases associated with a specific Apple ID have just put the alleged owner of KickassTorrents (KAT), Artem Vaulin, under arrest

At the time of Vaulin's arrest, KickassTorrents was the world's most visited illegal file-sharing website and was responsible for the unlawful distribution of over $1 billion in copyrighted materials. Vaulin is from Ukraine, and was arrested in Poland where he is awaiting extradition to the United States.

The US government made an identification of an iCloud email address that belonged to Vaulin, then sought a court order to compel Apple to provide iTunes purchase records for that address....

Mossberg: I just deleted half my iPhone apps — you...

Walt Mossberg, writing for The Verge:

Over the past few days, I’ve methodically deleted 165 apps from my iPhone, about 54 percent of the 305 apps I had on the phone when I started culling the herd. When I was done, I had significantly decreased the phone’s clutter: I’d gone from 15 home screens to eight, and reclaimed nearly 8GB of free space, about a 24 percent gain in my case.

And:

But this isn’t one of those columns about digital housecleaning or how to free up more space on your iPhone, valuable as those are. It’s easier to save space by offloading most photos, video, and music to the cloud anyway. No, this column is really about the fact that I think the novelty of the app itself has worn off. We’ve reached peak app.

And:

Before going on, I want to make it clear that I am not against apps as a software type. Just the opposite: I believe them crucial to mobile devices. I personally find that, for many targeted tasks, a well-designed app is...

Pokémon Go could generate billions for Apple

CNBC:

Needham & Co. Managing Director Laura Martin estimates that “Pokemon Go” could generate $3 billion in revenue for Apple in the next 12 to 24 months as the game expands into more countries. Since the game achieved penetration of 6 percent of the U.S. population after just 10 days, Martin predicts 20 percent penetration at maturity.

And here’s the key:

“I think the point is that while Nintendo has gone up 20 billion and they do have IP risks, Apple does not,” Martin said on CNBC’s “Halftime Report.” “It is hedged because the next genius that makes a hit game, Apple shares on that one too. So while this one may be transitory, Apple has an option on all future hit games over the iOS platform.”

At the core of the App Store’s business model is this risk disparity. Apple took the vast majority of their risk at inception, when they built the App Store infrastructure. Now that risk has been paid for and the current risk all lies with the developers....

Exploring the App Store’s Top Grossing chart

Graham Spencer takes you on a behind-the-scenes guided tour through the App Store’s Top Grossing chart.

From the wrap-up:

If you regularly browse the App Store’s Top Charts most of these results would likely serve to confirm what you had already assumed. Most obviously, if you were to randomly pick an app from the Top 200 Grossing charts, chances are extremely high that you would pick a free app with IAPs and it would most likely be a game. But what is particularly suprising is the degree to which free apps with IAP dominate the charts with essentially no paid apps or no apps without IAPs.

Some fascinating numbers here.

Smartphones become indispensable tools for journalists, human right workers, and activists in war-torn regions. But at the same time, as Intercept points out, they become especially potent tracking devices that can put users in mortal danger by leaking their location. To address the problem, NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden and hardware hacker Andrew "Bunnie" Huang have been developing a way for potentially imperiled smartphone users to monitor whether their devices are making any potentially compromising radio transmissions. "We have to ensure that journalists can investigate and find the truth, even in areas where governments prefer they don't," Snowden told Intercept. "It's basically to make the phone work for you, how you want it, when you want it, but only when." Snowden and Huang presented their findings in a talk at MIT Media Lab's Forbidden Research event Thursday, and published a detailed paper. Huang has also detailed the technicalities in a blog post on his site. From...
