Office for iPad to get printing, serve as basis for...

The recently-launched Office for iPad will get printing support "in due course," according to a Reddit AMA conducted by members of the software's engineering team. The team says it is also considering mathematical notation in OneNote, and working on implementation of comments and add/change conditional formatting in Excel. Something the suite won't support, though, is third-party Office apps, despite the fact that Microsoft allows desktop developers to hook into Office 365. Microsoft blames the situation on Apple's App Store policies, which block apps from installing code other than their o...

A major security flaw has been discovered in the OpenSSL cryptographic software library, jeopardizing security for a large number of SSL/TLS-based transmissions. The fault, named the "Heartbleed Bug," has apparently existed since March last year but only recently uncovered, and puts at risk not only the contents of encrypted online communications, but also the SSL keys used in the transmission....

Do you remember the old record player and stereo that belonged to your grandparents? It was a piece of furniture. Four feet across, three feet tall, and 18-inches deep, and made of wood, it's taken decades to realize how cool it was. Jeffrey Stephenson has made a glorious stand for a Bluetooth speaker that will take you back to 1961.

Microsoft to compete with Amazon and Netflix with...

Bloomberg:

Microsoft Corp. is going Hollywood with a cast including comedians Sarah Silverman and Seth Green, aspiring World Cup players and eerily human robots.

All are involved in shows that Microsoft’s new Xbox television studio plans to roll out globally starting in June. Helmed by former CBS Corp. honcho Nancy Tellem, who Microsoft hired 19 months ago to build a TV powerhouse from the ground up, the studio now has six series lined up — including a science-fiction thriller called “Humans” about humanoid robot workers — and more than a dozen projects in development.

This is Microsoft’s not-so-Trojan horse into the living room, building dependence on the Xbox One for accessing web-based programming on your TV, competing with Apple TV, Fire TV, and Google’s evolving TV solution.

Microsoft does Reddit: Five cool things we learned...

Don’t look now, but the Office for iPad team ventured onto Reddit for one of the service's Ask Me Anything (AMA) sessions. Here are the five most intriguing things they said.

The Office for iPad team and Office for Mac team are one and the same

Not a big surprise, but the folks who built the Office for iPad apps are the same ones who are working on Office for Mac. And it’s a pretty Mac-centric group, too; According to the team, “everyone has an iPad, and the Mac:PC ratio is 16:1.” Don’t expect them to reveal when the next version of Office might make its way to the Mac, however; when asked, the group would only say “we are working on the next version.”

Apple, Google, and Amazon's Quest For One...

smaxp writes: "If the cable and satellite live television providers were to comment on the latest Amazon Fire TV or reports of the new Google Android and Apple TVs, it would likely be in the voice and character of Charlton Heston: 'We will give up our remotes when they are pried from our cold dead hands.' Amazon's Fire TV and the rumored Google Android and Apple TVs excite and then disappoint. At first glance, it looks like cable and satellite television are about to be outflanked and the eternal struggle with the TV remote and set-top box will be solved with an intuitive interface to search both live television and archival content from streamed online video companies such as Netflix. Sadly, it isn't so. The cable and satellite companies that provide live television have made sure this won’t happen, because putting Amazon in the forefront would make live television providers’ brands less relevant. Amazon would then also have a wedge to pry its way into the live television...

Rethinking What We Mean by ‘Mobile Web’

Chris Dixon, in a piece titled “The Decline of the Mobile Web”, citing stats from ComScore and Flurry:

People are spending more time on mobile vs desktop. And more of
their mobile time using apps, not the web.

This is a worrisome trend for the web. Mobile is the future. What
wins mobile, wins the Internet. Right now, apps are winning and
the web is losing.

I think Dixon has it all wrong. We shouldn’t think of the “web” as only what renders inside a web browser. The web is HTTP, and the open Internet. What exactly are people doing with these mobile apps? Largely, using the same services, which, on the desktop, they use in a web browser. Plus, on mobile, the difference between “apps” and “the web” is easily conflated. When I’m using Tweetbot, for example, much of...

Courtroom Drama: Hollywood Sues Megaupload


Six Hollywood studios have banded together in a copyright infringement lawsuit against Megaupload, the wildly popular though now shuttered site that, in its heyday, was ground zero for file-sharing. The suit doesn't specify an amount of damages, but does say that the studios should be entitled to $150,000 per copyright infringement, as well as profits earned by Megaupload. U.S. authorities claim Megaupload facilitated $500 million worth of copyright infringement, and that the website and its kingpin, Kim Dotcom, generated about $175 million.

Review: D-Link DIR-510L portable router

Having Internet access in hotels and other similar locations used to be a miasma of connectivity issues. If Wi-Fi was available, it was overloaded, at a cost per device, and slow. The addition of 4G to most major markets has helped that somewhat, but in many cases, Wi-Fi is still the fastest option, if not the cheapest sometimes as the per-device charges still seem to be prevalent. The D-Link DIR-510L portable router tries to even this out somewhat, allowing users with an available tethered or cellular modem-provided 3G/4G, Wi-Fi, or Ethernet connection make a local area network in a small pac...

Another ad, titled “Pixel Density” (below) takes on the iPad’s Retina display, claiming that the Galaxy Pro tablet has a better looking display due to a higher pixel density. Samsung’s Tab Pro 10.1 2014 tablet includes a resolution of 2560 x 1600 with a pixel density of 299 compared to the iPad’s 2048 x 1536, 264 ppi display.

iPhone Tips: Improving Touch ID accuracy

Since I was in a fingerprint scanning news mood, I thought it would be a good time to share this tip that I learned recently. Courtesy of iOS 7.1, you can now add additional training to your Touch ID settings in order to improve accuracy. In iOS 7.0.x, the only way to try and improve Touch ID was really to start over, and once it told you that the training was finished, you could opt to continue adding more scans of your finger. In 7.1, Apple made it fairly painless.

Here’s how it’s done. Open the Settings app on your iPhone 5S and go to the Touch ID & Passcode section. You will be prompted for your ‘character’ passcode, and then you will find the list of registered fingers under Fingerprints. Here’s the cool part! Simply place the finger you want to add scan training for (in the image, the “Right thumb”) on the phone’s Touch ID sensor/Home...

Over on YouTube, user iCrackUriDevice has a pretty thorough comparison between the S5′s scanner and Apple’s Touch ID scanner on the iPhone 5S. (does anyone else see the irony in the 5S vs. the S5?)

A suspect new report out of China claims to have a great deal of specifics on Apple's rumored "iWatch," namely that it will debut in the third quarter of this year and will include advanced sensors to detect a user's heart rate and blood pressure, among other things.

Concept image: Stephen Olmstead

You can’t get much sketchier than a Chinese Economic Daily report cited by DigiTimes, but the former is citing supply chain sources in claiming that Apple plans to release the iWatch in the third quarter of this year, and that the company expects to ship 65M units this year.

The iWatch will be manufactured by Quanta Computer, while Taiwan-based chip design house Richtek has also entered the supply chain. The device’s touch panel will be supplied by TPK, the paper noted. [With Samsung making the processor to Apple's design.]

The original story says that suppliers have been...

Over the weekend, Apple filed a notice with the court that it could wrap up its main presentation by tomorrow at the earliest, but expects to be done no later than Friday, barring any changes to Samsung's pattern of cross-examination. On Monday, patent expert Andrew Cockburn from New Zealand was summoned back to the witness stand for a scant 16 minutes of light cross-examination, followed by testimony from Apple engineer Thomas Deniau and a pair of additional patent experts....

This year, those wishing to attend Apple's Worldwide Developer's Conference don't just need to have $1,600 burning a hole in their pockets; they also need lady luck on their side. Due to last year's instant sellout of the conference, Apple has decided to move to a lottery system to help ensure that people from across different time zones have a chance of attending. Those selected in the lottery are being notified by email, and will have until April 14 to buy their ticket....

Adobe officially debuts Lightroom Mobile for iPad

In a surprise debut on Monday, Adobe took the wraps of its briefly-leaked Lightroom Mobile for iPad, a mobile version of its desktop software intended as a companion app to the full version for desktops and notebooks. As such, it requires both the latest version of Lightroom 5 (which was also updated earlier today to v5.4) for Mac or Windows, and a subscription to Adobe's Creative Cloud subscription service in order to use the free application. The program uses syncing and lower-rez thumbnails to get around the problem of the iPad's limited storage....

Amazon A9′s VP of Search heads to Apple to fix up...

Benoit Dupin, Vice President of Amazon A9′s Search Technology group, has left the high-profile search technology firm to take up a job with Apple. Dupin’s profile from Amazon A9′s executive management website disappeared this week, and his LinkedIn profile has been updated to reflect that he began his position as a director at Apple this month.

Amazon A9 is Amazon’s Palo Alto, California-based subsidiary that focuses on developing Amazon’s marquee search and advertising functionality. While Amazon has become popular in the tablet, eBook reader, and now set-top-box worlds, its core business has, of course, been Amazon.com, and Dupin’s work on search powers the heart of the online sales giant…

Digitimes: Apple working on in-house baseband chip...

Apple is reportedly putting together a new engineering team that would focus on creating baseband hardware for future iPhone models, according to Digitimes. Apple’s current chips are supplied by Qualcomm, but is said to be considering a move to an in-house design as it did with its mobile processors with the launch of the iPad.

The report indicates that any such design would not appear in hardware this year, but could be considered for the next round of iPhone updates. That would put it on track for what we could tentatively call the iPhone 6s.

Of course, this report...

Analyst Brian White of Cantor Fitzgerald, who is currently on a tour of Asia and meeting with partners in Apple's supply chain and resellers, has told investors in a memo on Monday that his sources indicate that Apple sales strengthened substantially in March, following a "soft" January and February. While still believing that sales will be down 24 percent from the holiday quarter (compared to an average drop of 19 percent), White said Apple may still "surprise" analysts -- who have been expecting revenue to be generally flat -- in its next earnings report....

Apple: Dumb As a Patent Trolling Fox On iPhone Prior...

theodp (442580) writes "GeekWire reports that a Microsoft researcher's 1991 video could torpedo Apple's key 'slide to unlock' patent, one of 5 patents that the iPhone maker cited in its demand for $40 per Samsung phone. Confronted with what appears to be damning video evidence of prior art that pre-dates its 'invention' by more than a decade, Apple has reportedly arguied that the sliding on/off switch demoed by Catherine Plaisant is materially different than the slide to unlock switch that its 7 inventors came up with. Apple's patent has already been deemed invalid in Europe because of similar functionality present in the Swedish Neonode N1M." The toggle widgets demoed in the video (attached below) support sliding across the toggle to make it more difficult to swap state (preventing accidental toggling). The video itself is worth a watch — it's interesting to see modern UIs adopting some of the idioms that testing in the early 90s showed were awful (e.g. Gtk+ 3's state toggles)....

Lessons Learned from Mozilla's Edgy Eich Episode


It seems fair to say that we here in the Linux blogosphere are no strangers to difficult topics, but over the past few weeks FOSS fans have been struggling with what may be one of the trickiest yet. It is, of course, the matter of Brendan Eich. Cofounder of Mozilla, creator of JavaScript, Mozilla CTO for years and then CEO for just 10 days, Eich's term at the helm was cut short as a result of a firestorm of protest over his donation back in 2008 to the campaign for California Proposition 8 opposing same-sex marriage.

Unfortunately for the buyers, Android Police has discovered that all the app does is change a red “X” graphic to a red “check” graphic. Literally. The 859kb app doesn’t protect, secure, or scan anything.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

This app costs $3.99, has been on the Play Store for just under two weeks and has already had 10,000 downloads with a 4.5 star review from 1,700 people. 2,607 people hit the Google “recommend” button.

On Monday, Apple updated its iOS adoption statistics for developers to show that 87 percent of active iOS devices are now running iOS 7, with only 11 percent still on iOS 6 and a mere two percent (presumably devices that cannot upgrade, such as the original iPad) stuck on earlier versions. The figure was achieved less than seven months after the original release of the upgrade in mid-September. By comparison, only about 5.3 percent of Android users have or have been allowed to upgrade to last year's KitKat , which was announced around the same time as iOS 7 and debuted a month later....

Finally! MacPaint Has Been Recreated For Your Browser

At long last, someone has filled a gaping hole in our lives: MacPaint in a browser. OK, I said, "finally," but it was actually posted on Tumblr back in October, but it's still totally cool. Called, fittingly enough, CloudPaint, this is a pixel-for-pixel recreation of MacPaint, a piece of software that symbolized why the Mac was so much different from other computers in 1984. If you're up for some Mac nostalgia, or if you just want to get a taste of what it was like to create art on a computer at the beginning of it all, CloudPaint is a great walk down memory lane.

Intel expands 10Gbps “Thunderbolt Ethernet”...

Thunderbolt 2 is picking up another feature.

Chris Foresman

If standard gigabit Ethernet isn't cutting it for you, Intel will soon give you another option: this week at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) show in Las Vegas, the company announced a new feature called "Thunderbolt Networking" that will soon be available to all PCs with Thunderbolt 2 controllers.

The feature, which will be enabled by an upcoming Windows driver update, will "emulat[e] an Ethernet connection environment" and provide a 10Gbps two-way link between two computers connected with a Thunderbolt cable. Since you'll need to connect the two computers directly to each other, this solution obviously won't scale as well as real 10Gbps networking equipment. But for now, that hardware remains relatively uncommon and expensive—well outside the price range of...
