It's April Fools' Day, which means it is time to fool your friends and family using some these harmless and humorous pranks below. We include the old standards as well as few new techniques to expand your pranking repertoire. We finish off the list with a few good apps that'll leave you, and hopefully your target, in stitches.

Are you talking to me?

One handy feature of messages is the "three dots" icon that appears when a person is typing a response during a conversation. Fake a response and keep your recipient waiting by sending them this animated Gif of three dots.

Frozen Home Screen Prank

This prank is an oldie but goodie that still works on iOS 8 devices. Take a screenshot of the person's home screen by simultaneously pressing the home button and the power button. Next move all the app icons from the first home screen pane to another screen. Set the screenshot as the background by going to Settings ->...

India's Tussle With Internet Freedom


The Supreme Court of India last week struck down a law that curtailed the freedom of online speech. The law permitted arrests for posting "offensive" content online. The highest court in India ruled that Section 66(A) of the Information Technology Act was unconstitutional, and in its ruling said it had no hesitation in striking it down. The court had examined the legality of the law, which made posting information considered grossly offensive or menacing in character punishable by up to three years in jail.

The 10 Mac games you need to play from March 2015

A month of Mac gaming to savor

March’s selection of intriguing new releases serves as a testament to how strong Mac gaming has become. It’s a wide selection of experiences—large and small—spanning a nice array of genres: City building, role-playing, strategy, simulation, action, puzzle, and more. And what’s especially great is that almost every game on this list launched at the same time as on other platforms—waiting for ports is much less of a concern on Mac these days.

Hooray! It’s tax time again: Another year, another opportunity to step into the IRS income confessional and spill the details of your personal financial life. Luckily, if you own an iOS device, it may be all you need to settle up with the taxman. H&R Block, Intuit’s TurboTax, and TaxACT all offer apps or mobile web experiences that, depending on your needs, will do the job and do it well. Although the ability to file taxes on a mobile device is not a new concept, the programs are better than ever this year.

The limited selection of CarPlay apps has not grown much since its launch, with one of the most prominent hold-outs being Pandora. In a recent interview with Fox Business, however, Pandora CFO Mike Herring said that the company plans to add CarPlay support soon. “We’ll definitely be in CarPlay,” Herring said in the interview.

In the past, Pandora has told us that it is in “frequent discussions” with Apple about various topics, although it has denied supporting CarPlay. The interesting idea with Pandora for CarPlay, however, is that Apple has to sanction which apps gain support for its in-car offering. CarPlay already supports iTunes Radio and with...

In the other trailer, the roles are reversed, and it's Spartan Locke who's walking menacingly up to the downed Master Chief.

If you were planning on writing a function for the Apple Watch, now’s the time to begin.

Apple has officially invited all third party developers to submit Watch apps to the App Store. This means any of the 1.2 million apps can now submit updates including Watch apps (using the WatchKit framework), beyond the select partners Apple rolled out last week.

As a reminder, Watch apps come bundled as extensions inside normal iOS apps. This means customers can update the apps in the iPhone ready for the Watch’s release on the 24th. Apple is pointing developers to the submission reference guidelines for more information on this process.

Baselworld, where the watch is still the greatest...

The new York Times:

For one week in March, this glittering watch and jewelry show (which ran March 19 to 26), attracts 150,000 industry insiders, collectors and fans, emerging from the digital mists of the 21st century like Brigadoon. It is a village unto itself with its own language, values and celebrities.

And a curious village it is. In an iPhone-toting era, where millions go out in public every day flaunting naked wrists, this is one corner of the globe where the wristwatch — that centuries-old feat of micro-engineering once considered as obsolete as the rotary phone — is the only personal productivity device, status symbol and idea on earth that seems to matter.

Interesting how an article about watches can be written this day without ever mentioning the Apple Watch by name. The reporter must have had to twist himself into knots to not get a single relevant quote from any of the assembled “150,000 industry insiders”.

Zero G for iPhone 6 and 6 Plus: Stick your phone...

Zero G Prototype. Photo for Apple World Today by Steve Sande ©2015, All rights reserved.

There are a lot of iPhone cases on the market that use nano-suction material to affix the case to the iPhone, `but this is the first case I think I've seen that uses nano-suction to let you stick the case on just about any clean, flat surface. The Zero G case from Mega Tiny Corporation is currently in a Kickstarter campaign for funding, and if the pre-production device I reviewed is any indication, this could be the wooden stake to put through the heart of selfie sticks.

Why? Well, imagine you want to take a photo with some friends. Instead of pulling out the selfie stick and looking like a total fool, you just walk up to anything with a flat and clean surface and slap the iPhone onto it. It sticks, you take the photo with the self-timer, and then you pull...

Some people get a thrill from checking items off a hand-written to-do list. Others prefer to manage their lives with feature-packed digital calendars. I am both, and when I discovered Todoist earlier this year, it seemed like the best of both worlds: the ease of managing tasks in a centralized app combined with the simple pleasure of marking tasks off when you finish them. Now Todoist is even better with a facelift that delivers a new look and even more helpful new features.

The popular task management app on Tuesday rolled out a brand new version for iOS that sets the stage for a dramatic, platform-wide overhaul. Some 4 million people use Todoist to add 510,000 projects daily, and share an average of 52,000 tasks a day across millions of projects. Todoist founder and CEO Amir Salihefendic told me his team has been working to make the task management tool’s mobile apps as powerful...

Apple denies any infringement, and says that Ericsson is in any case demanding unreasonable amounts.

In an attempt to up the ante, Ericsson called on the U.S. International Trade Commission to block imports of the iPhone into the country, and the ITC has now agreed to carry out an investigation, reports PC World.

Apple to announce Q2 2015 earnings on April 27th

Apple today updated its investor relations page to confirm that it will announce its quarterly earnings for Q2 2015 on Monday April 27th [Via MacRumors]. The quarterly earnings statement will be released at approximately 1:30 PM PDT/4:30 PM EDT followed by an earnings call to discuss the results at 2:00 PM PDT/5:00 PM EDT. Apple World Today will hold a liveblog with commentary on the call.

The earnings report will include iPhone, iPad and Mac sales in the first three calendar months of 2015. It will not include the Apple Watch, which will go on sale three days before the earnings release.

Our take on the news:

Last quarter, Apple announced record revenue from iPhone and Mac sales thanks to strong holiday sales. Most companies show a decline due to the post-Holiday slump in sales, so it'll be interesting to...

GitHub Defenses Hold in 4-Days-and-Counting Battle


After battling a DDoS attack for four days, GitHub has restored normal service levels. The primary target of the assault is GreatFire.org, which is hosted on GitHub. GreatFire has attracted the ire of the Chinese government for offering anticensorship tools. "Very clearly, the Cyberspace Administration of China is behind both of the recent DDoS attacks," said GreatFire Co-founder Charles Smith. The attack used malicious code inserted in Baidu Analytics to turn millions of unwitting users into procreators of crippling DDoS traffic.

Apple has scheduled its Q2 2015 earnings call for April 27th. The call will be held at 2PM Cupertino time, and will cover the company’s earnings for the second quarter of the fiscal year. As usual, the live audio of the call will be available on Apple’s website.

Prior to the call, the company will release its Q2 earnings report, then the executive team will break down the numbers in a bit more detail for investors and members of the media on its quarterly conference call. A Q&A session will provide a chance for the executives to cryptically hint at future plans while going into even further detail on specific points.

During the previous call, Apple announced that it had reached a major milestone by shipping its 1 billionth iOS device and sold 74.4 million iPhones, 21.4 million iPads, and 5.5 million Mac computers, raking in a...

On the first day Apple World Today was open for business (Feb. 9, 2015), our first published review was about the Twelve South ParcSlope (US$49.95, affiliate link), an aluminum stand for MacBook. While the ParcSlope gathered a five-star rating from AWT for its sleek design and solid construction, it's hardly a stand that you can take with you everywhere. Little did we know at the time that Twelve South had another, much more portable MacBook stand waiting in the wings. The BaseLift for MacBook ($39.99) is now available from Twelve South, and it can be used anywhere to give your laptop a lift and your thighs some insulation from the heat (...

Compliance Mindset Can Lead to Epic Security Fail


The recent data breach at Premera Blue Cross -- in which the personal information of some 11 million customers was compromised -- raises questions about how effective government regulators are at ensuring that healthcare providers adequately protect their patients' data. There have been abundant warnings that compliance with government regulations alone would not be adequate to protect companies from the kinds of cyberthreats the world faces today. However, Premera learned that lesson the hard way.

Apple today has expanded its Reuse and Recycling program to include non-Apple devices such as PCs and Android, BlackBerry and Windows Phone smartphones from HTC, Nokia, LG and others.

The smartphone trade-in program has gone live in the United States, United Kingdom, Italy and France in partnership with third-party device buyback and trade-in company Brightstar Corporation. Apple is also accepting various PC models by certain manufacturers as part of its expanded Reuse and Recycling Program, which is also being handled by third-party vendor Dataserv.

Customers trading in these non-Apple devices will receive a Store gift card or a bank transfer credit for the value of the trade-in...

Jay-Z to relaunch his new Tidal Music Service

Tidal, the high-definition music streaming service acquired by rapper and music mogul Jay-Z, is gearing up for its official relaunch under new ownership later today, and it will be doing so by reportedly making a move to snag new releases by some of the biggest musicians of the moment including Kanye West, Madonna and Daft Punk, ahead of rival services like Spotify and Beats.

The streaming business is getting pretty crowded. Apple is late to the game, but they could still make its mark in the industry with a redesigned Beats.

YouTube Fiddles With 4K


YouTube on Friday announced that it would begin supporting Ultra High Definition 4K video content. YouTube officially unveiled the news via TestTube, an incubator for new features concocted by its so-called mad scientists. YouTube developers have posted six experimental videos that can be streamed at up to 2160p -- essentially a resolution of 3,840 x 2,160. The videos support 60 frames per second, and thus are sharper and smoother than the common frame rates of 24fps and 30fps.

Buying an Apple Watch won’t be as simple as wandering into your local Apple Store and pointing out the device you want, like it is with most other Apple products. Expect more of a “journey,” if 9to5Mac’s latest reports about the watch-buying experience are accurate.

Special treatment for high rollers

Watch Edition buyers will get the white-glove treatment, as you would guess from a shopping trip that could end in a $10,000 to $17,000 sale. If you’re interested in dropping some serious cash on a watch, Apple will set you up with an hour-long personalized appointment away from the riff-raff trying on the lower-priced models. You’ll be able to try on two Edition models at a time, plus accessories to round out your purchase. The customer...

Apple Extends Its Trade-In Program

Mark Wilson writes "Earlier in the month it was reveal that Apple was about to start offering gift cards as part of a trade-in program for people buying new a new iPhone. The updated program has now gone live so you can take your old Apple device, or non-Apple smartphone to an Apple store, or mail it in to receive credit. The credit can be used in store or online against the purchase of a new Apple device, and this program expansion is the latest move from Apple to try to tempt users away from other platforms. You can check online to see how much you can expect to receive for your existing phone and decide whether it's worth your while. Hint: it might not be.

Gold Apple Watch Edition comes with a buying...

You probably already know if you're going to shell out $10,000 or more for the Apple Watch Edition—aside from being made of gold, it isn't going to do anything that the $349 Apple Watch Sport or the $549 Apple Watch can't do. However, buying and getting support for the five-figure watches will apparently be substantially different, according to a report from 9to5Mac.

It begins with the buying experience itself. The cheaper Apple Watches will reportedly be sold using five- to ten-minute demo sessions at tables set up throughout Apple Stores, but the Apple Watch Edition will be demoed in private one-on-one sessions that can last up to an hour. Accessories and alternate bands will apparently be offered after customers have been allowed to try on the watches.

Once you've bought your five-figure smart watch, you can elect to...

Tim Cook: ‘religious freedom’ laws are dangerous

Photo via flickr user Mike Deerkosk.

In an op-ed piece written for The Washington Post online, Apple CEO Tim Cook formally announced his opposition to "pro-discrimination religious freedom laws," such as Senate Bill 101, which you can read in its entirety here. The so-called "religious freedom" law passed in Indiana last week, which opponents say could give business owners the right to refuse service to gay customers.

Under Tim Cook, Apple has celebrated diversity among its employees. In this week's editorial, the CEO recounted his company's pro-diversity, anti-discrimination stance:

If you’re ready to defect to the iPhone from Android or BlackBerry, the Apple Store will welcome you with open arms—and some store credit.

Apple retail stores are expanding their trade-in programs beyond the iPhone and iPad to include “select” smartphones from other manufacturers. Word of the new program first appeared on individual store websites, as spotted by 9to5Mac.

Apple has been offering credit for old iPhones and iPads at its retail stores since 2013. The company also accepts old Apple products and Windows PCs through its Reuse and Recycle website. This is the first time Apple will be offering store credit for Android and BlackBerry phones.

AWT Health Club: Withings Smart Body Analyzer

How did the last week go for those of you who decided to take the challenge and start (or keep) tracking your health? For me, the week was kind of a wash; my Achilles tendon was hurting, which kept me from walking a lot. However, I still managed to get some walking in… Sadly, I was bad over the weekend and actually ended up 0.3 lb from last week…

This week’s focus is on a device that’s been checking my weight almost every morning since 2009. That’s a Withings Connected Scale, which also measures body fat and displays your Body Mass Index (BMI). The scale has come a long way since I first bought one back in 2009; it now also acts as an air quality sensor and takes your pulse when you weigh in. Any measurements made by the scale are transmitted via Wi-Fi to the Withings cloud, where you can either view it on a website or using...

External Link: Tim Cook Speaks Out Against “...

Apple has come a long way from Steve Jobs’s open letters about DRM, Flash, and the firm’s environmental efforts. In a Washington Post op-ed, Apple CEO Tim Cook criticizes state laws that he says “would allow people to discriminate against their neighbors,” such as Indiana’s controversial Religious Freedom Restoration Act, which some say opens the door to discrimination against LGBT individuals. Invoking his childhood in the South during the civil rights movement, Cook moves from noting that “America’s business community recognized a long time ago that discrimination, in all its forms, is bad for business,” to the more humanistic “This isn’t a political issue. It isn’t a religious issue. This is about how we treat each other as human beings.”
