Trammell Hudson to keynote MacTech Conference

The keynote for MacTech Conference will be Trammell Hudson of Thunderstrike and Magic Lantern fame. He’s a programmer and reverse engineer who focuses on low-level software and hardware security. 

At Two Sigma Investments, Hudson is a security researcher and is developing Heads, an open source firmware for slightly more secure systems. Previously he developed lightweight operating system kernels and message passing systems for the world’s fastest supercomputers at Sandia National Labs.

Trammell’s security research into Apple’s hardware resulted in Thunderstrike and Thunderstrike II, the first proof-of-concept firmware rootkits for MacBooks. After working with Apple to patch the underlying vulnerabilities, he presented his findings at CCC, BlackHat and DEFCON.

Trammell is also well known for Magic Lantern Firmware — where he reverse engineered the firmware in the Canon 5D Mark II and started the Magic Lantern project that is now an open system for writing...

Beware of sketchy iOS popups that want your Apple ID

Enlarge (credit: Felix Krause)

One of iOS' rougher edges are the popups it produces on a regular but seemingly random basis. These popups require users to enter their Apple ID before they can install or update an app or complete some other mundane task. The prompts have grown so common most people don't think twice about them.

Mobile app developer Felix Krause makes a compelling case that these popups represent a potential security hole through which attackers can steal user credentials. In a ...

64 percent of Americans own an Apple product

The CNBC All-America Economic Survey finds that 64 percent of Americans now own an Apple product, up from 50 percent when the question was last asked five years ago. The average American household reports owning 2.6 Apple products, up by a full Apple product from the 2012 survey.

“I cannot think of any other product — especially any other product at a high price point — that has that kind of permeation with the public and level of growth,” said Jay Campbell, pollster with Hart Research, which conducted the survey along with Public Opinion Strategies.

Absolutely incredible when you think about it.

If the production quality can match this, we're totally in.


Hollywood reboots are nothing new these days. In fact, they're so common that even a reboot of an oddball cult-classic barely turns heads (Twin Peaks shows that formula can succeed, right?). And anything from the back catalogue of an iconic creator like Steven Spielberg may be continually ripe for revisiting. Just this summer, Amblin Entertainment confirmed Spielberg's involvement with a new Animaniacs series, for instance.

So at first blush, Deadline detailing today that Spielberg's Amazing Stories (an...

Netflix fends off criticism over Canada investment

Netflix Inc said on Tuesday it had received formal approval to start a C$500 million production unit in Canada and sought to quell talk that it had asked for special tax benefits for investing in its first such unit outside the United States.

I don’t understand the criticism. A company should ask for all the deals it can, including tax breaks. If a country, city, state, or province doesn’t want the business, jobs, and investment, someone else will.

Fast Company:

For minimum wage workers, a small emergency can mean financial disaster. A new app called Onward makes it easy for them to automatically set aside a few dollars each week to start an emergency fund.

An app from a new startup called Onward is designed to help low-wage workers steadily save, and also offers a line of credit with relatively low interest rates if someone needs a little extra in an emergency.

While the employer’s participation is key, this is a great way to help the working poor save a little money for the future and is definitely a better alternative than the evil “Payday Loan”

Review: Tech Armor ActivePower 6000 Mobile Power Bank

Tech Armor ActivePower 6000 Mobile Power Bank. Photo ©2017, Steven Sande

External battery packs are quite commonplace, as everybody seems to want a way to keep their devices charged when they’re away from power outlets. But there’s a dilemma with battery packs; they’re usually too large to be pocketable, ugly as sin, and may not have the amperage to quickly top off a tablet. Tech Armor’s ActivePower 6000 Mobile Power Bank (US$39.99) does away with all of the negatives and is an external battery pack worth looking at.

We’ll start with the size, both physical and in terms of power capacity. At 6000 mAh, the ActivePower 6000 has enough power to charge an iPhone 7 Plus (at 2,900 mAh) twice. As for tablets, it’s enough to supply about 3/4 of a charge to a 10.5-inch iPad Pro. Physically, the ActivePower 6000 is 4.1 x 1.87 x 1.06 inches (104mm x 47.4mm x 27mm) and...

Apple may reboot Steven Spielberg’s ‘Amazing Stories’

“It’s wonderful to be reunited with our colleagues Zack and Jamie in their new capacity at Apple,” said Jennifer Salke, President, NBC Entertainment, who oversees Universal TV. “We love being at the forefront of Apple’s investment in scripted programming, and can’t think of a better property than Spielberg’s beloved Amazing Stories franchise with the genius of Bryan Fuller at the helm and more exciting creative partnerships to come.”

iOS Privacy: steal.password – Easily get the user’s...

Felix Krause:

iOS asks the user for their iTunes password for many reasons, the most common ones are recently installed iOS operating system updates, or iOS apps that are stuck during installation.

As a result, users are trained to just enter their Apple ID password whenever iOS prompts you to do so. However, those popups are not only shown on the lock screen, and the home screen, but also inside random apps, e.g. when they want to access iCloud, GameCenter or In-App-Purchases.

This could easily be abused by any app, just by showing an UIAlertController, that looks exactly like the system dialog.

Even users who know a lot about technology have a hard time detecting that those alerts are phishing attacks.

These dialog boxes pop up all the time and users who aren’t tech savvy can, will and do just type in their passwords without thinking about why they are doing

Review: Audio-Technica ATH-DSR9BT

At CES 2017, Audio-Technica announced a line of "purely digital" headphones, and many audio enthusiasts scoffed. Surely this was just more marketing speak, using "digital" as a buzzword just like other companies had slapped "HD" on nearly every product in the early 2000s. Common sense dictated that although these headphones might accept a digital signal, there must be a digital to analog conversion at some point, right? Well, the doubters were wrong — Audio-Technica's DSR headphones are actually digital-only, using a new technology that we've never seen before in a headphone. Long story short: they're the best sounding wireless headphones we've yet heard.{/exp:char_limit}

Security Researcher Finds a Fundamental Flaw in iOS

Felix Krause writes: Do you want a user's Apple ID password to get access to their Apple account or to try the same email/password combination on different web services? Just ask your users politely, they'll probably just hand over their credentials, as they're trained to do so. This is just a proof of concept, phishing attacks are illegal! Don't use this in any of your apps. The goal of this blog post is to close the loophole that has been there for many years, and hasn't been addressed yet. For moral reasons, I decided not to include the actual source code of the popup, however it was shockingly easy to replicate the system dialog.

An Apple tax? I’ll gladly pay it

When reading about Apple products you often come across the term “Apple Tax.” It refers to the premium Apple users pay for the products. This premium is simply not an imaginary addition to the cost of the product, but provides real, tangible benefits. More than once this year, I’ve been reminded how much the premium for Apple products is worth it.

A couple of months ago my wife’s original Apple Watch had the back separate from the body. She could put it back on, but almost daily it would come off. I logged onto the Apple Support app and scheduled an appointment with the genius bar at the nearest Apple store. 

Upon arrival they took us to the Genius Bar within 10 or so minutes. The man examined the watch and determined quickly there was an issue not caused by us, and we were covered by AppleCare. He took the watch and got our information. This was a Monday. Two days later on Wednesday, a FedEx truck pulled into our driveway with a replacement watch from Apple. It was...

Why Blade Runner is called Blade Runner

Saw Blade Runner over the weekend. Very impressive movie, but it does beg the question. What the hell is a Blade Runner?

Abraham Riesman, Vulture:

Though the viewer is told in the opening text of Ridley Scott’s 1982 original that “special Blade Runner units” hunt renegade replicants — and though the term “Blade Runner” is applied to Harrison Ford’s Rick Deckard a few times in the film — we’re never given an explanation of where the proper noun comes from. “Blade?” Deckard uses a gun, not a knife or sword. “Runner?” Sure, he runs at times, but not more than the average person might. Blade Runner 2049 has a few scenes that prominently feature scalpels, but they’re not wielded by a Blade Runner. The novel upon which Blade Runner was based, Philip K. Dick’s Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, offers no clues: Deckard and his ilk are just cops, never referred to as Blade Runners. The term is impressionistic at best and nonsensical at worst.

Apple eyes a self-adjusting Apple Watch band (now...

A self-adjusting band for the Apple Watch, anyone? It’s possible. Apple has filed for a patent (number 9,781,984) for “dynamic fit adjustment for wearable electronic devices.”

Systems and methods for dynamically adjusting the fit of a wearable electronic device are disclosed. In many embodiments, a tensioner associated with a wearable electronic device can control one or more actuators that are mechanically coupled to either the housing or to a band attached to the wearable electronic device. In one example, in response to a signal to increase the tightness of the band, the tensioner can cause the actuator(s) to increase the tension within the band.

In the patent filing, Apple says that some wearable electronic devices (such as smart watches) may be multi-purpose devices, providing in one example both fitness/health tracking and timekeeping functionality. Accordingly, a user may prefer the fit of a smart watch to vary with use. For example, a user may prefer a looser...

Juli Clover, MacRumors:

iPad Pro models set to be released in 2018 will come equipped with a TrueDepth Camera and will support Face ID, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo told investors in a note this morning.

Kuo believes Apple will add TrueDepth cameras to the iPad Pro to introduce a user experience that’s consistent with the iPhone X and boost competitiveness. With all high-end iOS devices equipped with TrueDepth Cameras, “ecosystem development” will also benefit.

Here’s the quote from Ming-Chi Kuo:

We predict iOS devices to be equipped with TrueDepth Camera in 2018F will include iPhone X and 2018 new iPhone and iPad models. Because of this, we believe more developers will pay attention to TrueDepth Camera/ facial recognition related applications. We expect Apple’s (US) major promotion of facial recognition related applications will encourage the Android camp to also dedicate more resources to developing hardware and facial recognition applications...

Wells Fargo, BNZ announce Apple Pay support

Wells Fargo & Company has announced that debit card customers have another way to use the company’s ATMs without their card -- “tap and pay” near-field communication (NFC) functionality that is launching at more than 5,000 ATMs across the country, which means Apple Pay compatibility.

The Bank of New Zealand, better known as BNZ, also says it will become the second major financial institution to support Apple Pay in New Zealand, though it gave no date on when this would be implemented. New Zealand’s ANZ Bank already supports Apple’s mobile payment service.

Apple Pay is currently available in 15 countries: Australia, Canada, China, France, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, Russia, Singapore, Spain,...

Deadline: Apple terminates deal for Weinstein...

Nellie Andreeva, Deadline:

I have learned that Apple has pulled the plug on an Elvis Presley biopic series from The Weinstein Company in light of the controversy that has engulfed TWC since last week’s explosive exposé about its co-founder Harvey Weinstein.

The article has a gossipy tone, this falls under the category of “a little birdie told me”, but it is both interesting and believable. The Weinstein Company is doing everything they can to distance themselves from this scandal.

If this story is true, Apple is bailing early in the life of the series, and pulling the plug on something that predates their deal with Jamie Erlicht and Zack Van Amburg (the team they brought in to run the Apple video division).

Analyst: tax plan could push Apple to ‘trillion...

In a note to clients,, RBC Capital Markets says Apple could reach a “trillion dollar market-cap scenario” thanks to President Trump’s tax plan. 

RBC estimates that the plan, which includes a corporate tax rate cut from 35% to 20%, could provide Apple with a $4 to $4.50 earnings-per-share windfall to go before approval but RBC outlines key areas that could benefit Apple including tax deduction caps for interest expenses, tax rates on foreign profits, and a lowered repatriation tax. 

The plan would cut the corporate tax rate from 35% to 20% and lower repatriation tax rates for the accumulated foreign earnings of U.S. companies. Bank of America Merrill Lynch analyst Wamsi Mohan estimates the lower corporate taxes to benefit Apple’s earnings per share by $0.77 in fiscal year 2018 and $0.89 in...

Rumor: iPad to gain True Depth camera, Face ID...

It probably won’t come as a surprise, but Apple is looking to bring its Face ID technology to the iPad in 2018.

Per a research note released by analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities, Kuo stated on Monday that he believes the iPad Pro lineup will be bolstered by the addition of a TrueDepth camera.

By bringing Face ID and facial recognition capabilities to more of the product lineup, developers will be encouraged to create more applications, further strengthening the company’s ecosystem.

Kuo made no mention of impending design or form factor changes, such as whether there might be an iPad featuring an OLED display or whether Apple would do away with the home button, as it did with the iPhone X.

However, Kuo did indicate over a year ago that he expected OLED panels will come to the iPad lineup in 2018. It was in that same report that Kuo correctly predicted three new iPads in early 2017, including a new 10.5-inch screen size for the smaller iPad Pro....

AirPods inventory expands, pairs now easily found at...

If you’ve been hankering for a pair of AirPods but haven’t been able to find it on your normal store shelf, odds are they’ve finally arrived at your local Apple Store. Apple has been ramping up in store inventory over the past couple weeks, and most of the stores The Mac Observer checked have plenty in stock all the time.

Apple introduced AirPods a year ago but suffered from ongoing inventory constraints from the first day they were supposed to hit store shelves. Prior to a couple weeks ago, finding AirPods in a store was akin to finding a Wonka golden ticket and ordering online meant waiting weeks—if not months—for them to arrive.

This changed around the time the iPhone 8 was launched a couple of weeks back. Since then, the stock of AirPods in Apple Store retail locations seems to have improved dramatically.

Customers can check whether the pair of AirPods they want is in stock at their Apple Store location via their iOS device. If they’re available you can...

How to set up Universal Clipboard on macOS High...

The Universal Clipboard feature in macOS High Sierra and iOS 11 allows you to copy content, including text, images, photos and video from one Apple device and paste it in another. For example, you can browse a recipe on your Mac and paste the ingredients right to the grocery list on your iPhone.

The cool thing about Universal Clipboard is that you don’t have to turn on any settings for it to work. It just happens automatically as long as all your Mac and iOS devices are on the same Wi-Fi network. Also, make sure that Bluetooth is enabled on your iPhone and/or iPad.

With these steps implemented, you can copy on one device, go to another, and paste the data (text, photos, or videos) into another. 

To copy on a device, select the content you want to copy, then copy it. For example, on your Mac, press Command-C or choose Edit > Copy. The copied content is available to paste on your other devices only for a short time.

To paste on a device, position the...

But a report on the meeting says that Cook now accepts that Macron’s argument is winning the day …

Pixelmator for macOS High Sierra is a powerful image...

Some folks really need Adobe Photoshop with all its bells and whistles. However, Pixelmator has long been my graphics editing program of choice. The app has only gotten better with the recently released version 3.7.

Launch the application and you’re presented with an iMovie-style set of choices: Create New Image, Open Existing Image or Open Recent Image (the latter replaces the former Start Using Pixelmator option). Pixelmator supports over 100 different file formats, including — thank you, Pixelmator Team — PSD files.

The Pixelmator toolbar is very Mac-like. It’s streamlined, clean and easy to use after a short learning curve.

The software is user friendly and works well with macOS' Photos app. For example, the Photo Browser palette in Pixelmator lets you access your Photo Library, albums, Smart Albums, as well as pictures in your Pictures folder. You can drag and the images as layers in a Pixelmator composition.

Pixelmator actions in Automator allow...

According to MacRumors, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said iPad Pro models set to be released in 2018 will come equipped with a TrueDepth Camera and will support Face ID. Apple is believed to be adding TrueDepth cameras to the iPad Pro to introduce a user experience that's consistent with the iPhone X and boost competitiveness. From the report: According to Kuo, TrueDepth Cameras will be limited to the iPad Pro, which is Apple's main flagship tablet device. Kuo also predicts 2018 iPhone models will adopt the new camera technology coming in the iPhone X, as he has mentioned in a previous note: "We predict iOS devices to be equipped with TrueDepth Camera in 2018F will include iPhone X and 2018 new iPhone and iPad models. Because of this, we believe more developers will pay attention to TrueDepth Camera/ facial recognition related applications.
