BitTorrent 7.4.3 - Official client of the BitTorrent...

BitTorrent is a protocol for distributing files. It identifies content by URL and is designed to integrate seamlessly with the web. Its advantage over plain HTTP is that when multiple downloads of the same file happen concurrently, the downloaders upload to each other, making it possible for the file source to support very large numbers of downloaders with only a modest increase in its load.



Version 7.4.3 (40399):

Note: Now requires OS X 10.6 or later.

If you’re an unsigned musician looking for your break into the big time, being featured by Apple during a keynote watched by millions of people around the world isn’t a bad way to start.

When Eddy Cue introduced Apple Music, he used the example of Loren Kramar to demonstrate Apple Music Artist Accounts, more colloquially known as Connect. Any artist, he said, would be able to share content with fans through the social features provided within Apple Music – and he named Kramar as an artist who was “going to be really, really huge.”

Today’s post was written by Keith Carvalho, vice president of sales for Vitalyst.

For more than 125 years, Southern California Edison (SCE) has delivered electricity to 14 million Californians in homes, businesses and communities in Southern and Central California. Although SCE is one of the nation’s top 20 electric utilities and is among the leaders in its percentage of sustained renewable resources (over 19.9 percent in 2012), SCE was the last large electric public utility to use Lotus Notes.

With the aim of becoming a more modern public utility with enhanced internal capabilities and increasing productivity, SCE engaged in a partnership with Vitalyst and Microsoft Services to migrate its enterprise platform from Lotus Notes to Office 365. Organization Change Management (OCM) was identified as the most significant success factor, while the key business drivers were:

Design Taxi:

To promote its newly announced music service, Apple has rolled out three new ads showing its product’s ubiquity.

Its first ad—titled ‘Apple Music—Worldwide’—features music as the go-to companion for every situation in life. From the routine daily commute to moments of sadness, Apple Music never fails you. The second spot gives you a glimpse of the past with the ‘History of Sound’, presenting Apple Music as the future of the music industry.

The final commercial delves into the features of Apple Music and how it houses all your favorite sounds.

Apple Music is available to users at the end of this month—let’s see if it is able to live up to its big promises as advertised.

I always love when Apple posts new ads. I especially love all the “ad experts” pontificating about them the next day.

Serious iOS bug makes it easy to steal users’ iCloud...

A security researcher has published attack code he said makes it easy to steal the iCloud passwords of people using the latest version of Apple iOS for iPhones and iPads.

The proof-of-concept attack exploits a flaw in Mail.app, the default iOS e-mail program. Since the release of version 8.3 in early April, the app has failed to properly strip out potentially dangerous HTML code from incoming e-mail messages. The proof-of-concept exploit capitalizes on this failure by downloading a form from a remote server that looks identical to the legitimate iCloud log-in prompt. It can be displayed each time the booby-trapped message is viewed.

"This bug allows remote HTML content to be loaded, replacing the content of the original e-mail message,"...

Podcast: WWDC 2015 recap, part 1

So Apple is having an event this week, close enough to Macworld HQ that we can see the giant Apple logo plastered to the side of Moscone West from our windows. Susie was lucky enough to attend, and she and Glenn reconvened the next day to unpack everything Apple announced for our faithful podcast fans.

Wait, did I say “everything”? Ha, hardly. In an effort to make our discussion of the WWDC keynote far longer than the actual keynote itself, we only made it through about half on this week’s podcast, which mainly covers iOS 9 and watchOS 2. Tune in next week for more about OS X 10.11 El Capitan, Apple Music, the News app, and whatever else we can cram in before our microphones melt and Skype crashes our Macs (again).

Signs of Apple Music Begin Showing Up in iOS 8.4...

As of this afternoon, many developers and public beta testers running the latest iOS 8.4 beta are seeing popups for Apple's upcoming Apple Music service within the Music app.

When opening the app, there's a popup for Apple Music that prompts users to start a three month free trial. Tapping on that option leads to another screen that lets users choose either an individual plan for $9.99 for a family plan for $14.99, but there's no way to actually sign up for a plan. Choosing a plan simply grays out the option and does not allow users to progress further in the signup process.

These options have been showing up for some users since the latest iOS 8.4 beta was seeded yesterday morning, but many more users are now seeing signs of the Apple Music service as Apple begins to implement backend tools to support subscription signups at launch.

iOS 9 Extends Continuity Phone Call Features to...

With iOS 8, Apple introduced Continuity, a set of features that allow iOS devices and Macs to interface in new ways. One of the Continuity features allows the iPad and the Mac to receive both text messages and phone calls, so long as your devices, including your iPhone, are all on the same Wi-Fi network.

In iOS 9, accepting phone calls or text messages on your iPad or Mac routed from your iPhone is getting even better, with the addition of cellular support. With iOS 9, your iPhone no longer needs to be on the same network as your iPad or Mac for call forwarding to work.

That means an iPhone can continue to forward calls to a Mac or an iPad even when it's in an entirely different physical location. So, for example, if you forget your iPhone at home, you can continue to receive incoming calls on your Mac while at work, so long as your Mac is connected to a Wi-Fi network.

The feature is tied to Wi-Fi calling, and as noted by ...

Spotify to Apple: Come and get us.

When Apple announced its new streaming service during its annual World Wide Developer’s Conference on Monday, the company had Spotify in its sights. The Apple Music introduction included jabs about paying artists the rates they deserve and treating music like art instead of digital bits. But Spotify isn’t about to take any of Apple’s initial shots lying down.

On Wednesday, Spotify hit back with some impressive statistics about its growth. Spotify says it now has more than 20 million paying subscribers and 75 million active users. That’s double the number of paying users Spotify had in May 2014 when it hit the 10 million subscriber mark. As for paying out royalties, Spotify says it has paid out a grand total of $3 billion to artists, and $300 million of that was in the first three months of 2015.

Wood and plastic don’t look all that great together. That’s a fact I’ve been sadly aware of for the past five years or so, using a plastic keyboard/trackpad tray from an accessory manufacturer to turn my Apple Wireless Keyboard and Magic Trackpad into one big, wide happy family. I have a nice cherry wood desk in my office that looks great, especially on the rare occasions when it’s actually clean, so I always wished that someone would make a wood version of my keyboard/trackpad tray. It took a while, but now Grovemade has released a wood Trackpad Tray (US$59 in maple or walnut) to go along with its previously-released wood Keyboard Tray ($99 in maple or walnut).

iOS 9 adds cellular Continuity feature, T-Mobile...

Although Apple originally debuted Continuity in iOS 8, enabling iPhone calls and SMS messages to be received and answered on Macs or iPads, the feature only worked when the iPhone, Macs, and iPads were on the same Wi-Fi network. Today, T-Mobile announced that it is “the only mobile network operator in the world” with support for a new and previously unannounced iOS 9 feature: Continuity support has been added to T-Mobile’s cellular network, so a Mac or iPad can receive an iOS 9 iPhone’s calls even when the iPhone isn’t on the same Wi-Fi network.

This means that “T-Mobile customers will be able to answer that important text message or call on your Mac or iPad even if you left your phone at home,” explained T-Mobile, so “you can leave your phone on your desk and just take your tablet or your Mac to your meeting and never worry about missing anything.” Implicitly, the iPad or Mac would need to be connected to a Wi-Fi network for calls and SMS messages to come through.

As part of the funding round, European carrier TeliaSonera is responsible for $115 million. The music service now has 20 million paying subscribers and 75 million monthly active users, doubling the subscriber base since May of 2014. The LA Times reports: "U.S. companies participating in the Spotify funding include Halcyon Asset Management, GSV Capital, D.E. Shaw & Co., Technology Crossover Ventures, Northzone and P. Schoenfeld Asset Management, said the person familiar with the matter, who was not authorized to comment publicly. British investment firms Baillie Gifford, Lansdowne Partners and Rinkelberg Capital, along with Canadian hedge funds Senvest Capital and Discovery Capital Management also took part. In a statement disclosing its investment, TeliaSonera said it would work with Spotify to come up with innovations in media...

On Monday, Apple announced that the Health app and HealthKit framework on iOS 9 would include reproductive health tracking. Translation: you’ll be able to track your period on Apple's app on your iPhone once iOS 9 is available this fall. The feature is welcome news after Apple took criticism for not including the feature on the first version of the app.

Period tracking isn't new. Just as there are apps that track your sleep and fitness, there are several available for tracking a woman's menstrual cycle. We don't know much about the updated Health app, but the expectation is that it will...

iOS 9 code hints at vastly improved iPhone cameras

Code hidden within iOS 9 files hints that the front-facing camera in upcoming iPhones could sport flash support and support for a FaceTime camera with 1080p video capture. (That's up from the current 720p camera on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.)

The coding also suggests support for capturing 240fps video at 720p using the front facing FaceTime camera. Other additions to iOS 9 discovered in the code include support for a front-facing camera flash and the ability to capture panoramic selfie photos using the front camera.

As part of the new Developer Program, this is no longer required. Apps can be tested on devices, no purchase necessary.

Apple this week announced Swift 2 and said it would open-source it later this year. Swift 2 is a programming language for iOS, OS X and watchOS. It has a new error handling model that works with Apple SDKs and NSError. Two new features in Objective-C -- nullability annotations and generics -- make Swift 2 work better with Apple SDKs. "Generating higher-quality code is the central problem in software engineering, and anything that helps developers do that will help," said Al Hilwa, a program director at IDC.

Whole Foods will be among the small number of companies that first launch when the loyalty card support goes live this fall alongside iOS 9 and the renamed Passbook app now known as ‘Wallet’, 9to5Mac has learned.

iOS 9 Files Hint at Front-Facing Camera Improvements...

Code hidden within iOS 9 files hints at upcoming iPhone improvements, suggesting Apple could potentially be planning to introduce a front-facing camera with flash support, the ability to capture 1080p video, and several rear-facing camera capabilities, like Panorama and Slo-Mo modes.

"CAMCaptureCapabilities" files in iOS 9 discovered by developer Hamza Sood have file names like "[CAMCaptureCapabilities isFront1080p120Supported]," which seems to refer to the front-facing camera on the iPhone. At the current time, the front-facing "FaceTime" camera is able to capture 1.2-megapixel photos and record 720p HD video.

There's no indication that these particular file names reflect Apple's upcoming plans for the front-facing camera, but it's possible that these are improvements we may see in the future. The front-facing camera has always lagged behind the rear-facing camera in order to save space...

Although we originally created Office Mix to help educators deliver interactive lessons, we’ve been amazed at what people are doing with it every day. Inspired by you, we tried something new and it turns out that Office Mix is just as good at flipping conferences as it is at flipping classrooms!

Office Mix provides an innovative player that delivers a personalized experience. It groups content into scenes that are organized as PowerPoint slides, which lets viewers skip directly to the content that most interests them. Viewers can also use the slide sorter view to see all the slides together and jump directly to the content they want to watch next.

Technically, Office Mix achieves this by combining the PowerPoint web app with high-fidelity adaptive bitrate video delivered by Azure Media Services. Thus, mixes are experienced as PowerPoint slides—complete with animations, transitions and hyperlinks. Viewers can easily share mixes via...

New access and security controls for Outlook for iOS...

We are pleased to announce new access and security controls for Outlook for iOS and Android. With today’s update, Outlook now uses Active Directory Authentication Library (ADAL)-based authentication for Exchange Online mailboxes in Office 365, replacing the previously used basic authentication method. This new authentication method enables IT administrators to configure new access scenarios for sign in to Office 365 and to better control and manage Outlook on mobile devices in their organization.

Quick introduction to ADAL-based authentication

The ADAL-based authentication stack enables Outlook to engage in browser-based authentication with Office 365. Used by Office apps on both desktop and mobile, users sign in directly to Office 365’s identity provider (Azure Active Directory) to authenticate, rather than providing credentials to Outlook. The below screenshot shows the new sign in experience for users when connecting to an Office 365 Exchange Online mailbox from...

Apple replaces discoveryd with mDNSResponder for iOS...

It looks like the discoveryd protocol may not be working out for Apple and thus, it could be abandoned for both iOS 9 and OS X 10.11.

Recent analysis of the iOS 9 and OS X 10.11 El Capitan have shown that Apple has dropped the network protocol for the time being.

In both cases, mDNSResponder has been substituted in again, although the internal nature of the process makes it impossible to see whether it has changed at all since the build of OS X 10.10.4. The discovery protocol has been blamed for many networking and communication stability issues. One way Apple has achieved this is to get rid of discoveryd completely.

iOS Mail bug allows phishing attacks

Security researcher Jan Soucek discovered an iOS Mail bug a while back that allows attackers to run remote HTML code when an email is opened. What this means is that a malicious user who knows about the bug could create a phishing email that prompts users for their iCloud login. Once the login has been entered, the unsuspecting victim has handed over the keys to everything secured with Apple ID credentials. Here's Soucek's demonstration video of the bug in action:

The only way to skirt this issue right now is to be vigilant. If you're reading mail on your iOS device and a popup asks you to log into a system -- iCloud or other -- don't. The bug was initially filed with Apple in January, but the company has not yet fixed this problem. To force the issue and get things fixed as soon as possible, Soucek uploaded the proof of concept code to GitHub.

So once again: if you're reading mail in the iOS...

The bug also affects the Mac and Apple Watch and extends to third-party messaging apps such as Snapchat, Twitter and WhatsApp, as the issue is tied to the way banner notifications process Unicode.

The pair are preemptively investigating Apple's negotiations with music companies to see if Apple or the record labels violated antitrust laws, reports the New York Times.

The attorneys general wanted to know whether Apple pressured the music labels — or whether the labels conspired with Apple and one another — to withdraw support for popular “freemium” services offered by companies like Spotify in favor of Apple’s paid music subscriptions.

The European Commission also is examinging Apple's agreements with music labels for its Apple Music service overseas.

Siri’s upgrade (revealed at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference on Monday) emphasizes proactivity and has achieved parity with the primary features of Google Now and Microsoft’s Cortana: time- and location-based reminders, hunting down videos that can be played within an app, identifying contacts via their phone number, or launching particular songs. But several of Siri’s promised features actually push the platform ahead of the competition: pulling useful data from your apps, controlling your smart home, and kicking off specialized tasks based on your habits or current needs.

Reactions To Apple's Plans To Open Source Swift

itwbennett writes: At Apple's WWDC 2015 event yesterday, Craig Federighi, Apple's senior vice president of software engineering, announced that the company planned to open source the Swift language. Reaction to this announcement so far has sounded more or less like this: Deafening applause with undertones of "we'll see." As a commenter on this Ars Technica story points out, "Their [Apple's] previous open-source efforts (Darwin, WebKit, etc) have generally tended to be far more towards the Google style of closed development followed by a public source dump." Simon Phipps, the former director of OSI, also expressed some reservations, saying, "While every additional piece of open source software extends the opportunities for software freedom, the critical question for a programming language is less whether it is itself open source and more whether it's feasible to make open source software with it. Programming languages are glue for SDKs, APIs and libraries. The real value of Swift...

On the sidelines of Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference, marketing SVP Phil Schiller has spoken to Daring Fireball’s John Gruber for a live episode of his The Talk Show podcast.

A day after the WWDC keynote address, Apple SVP of Marketing Phil Schiller joined Daring Fireball's John Gruber on Gruber's podcast, The Talk Show. The episode has not yet been posted, but The Verge was on hand to document the interview. Schiller addressed concerns about 16 GB iPhones, the decision between thin devices and battery life and the single USB port on the MacBook.

Gruber suggested to Schiller that the Cupertino company's iOS devices should come with larger storage capacities on the low end, as the 16 GB of storage provided in the base iPhone 6 or 6 Plus is harder to live with with the current size of apps. Schiller countered that services like iCloud could make up the difference.
"The belief is more and more as we use iCloud services for documents and our photos and videos and music," he said...

Adobe Flash Player is a cross-platform, browser-based application runtime that provides uncompromised viewing of expressive applications, content, and videos across browsers and operating systems.



Version 18.0.0.160: New and Updated

  • VideoTexture Support for Android
    The current ActionScript (AS) implementation on Android doesn't allow direct access to texture from video or camera for use with Stage3D. Thus, currently, in order to use video or camera frames as textures with stage3D, the SWF content developer must use a bitmap representation of a video or camera frame. Once a bitmap is created from the video or camera object, the developer needs to create a texture and update the created texture with the bitmap. This process normally requires multiple copying of the bitmap, which can be slow and resource intensive. To resolve this problem, this feature provides video texture objects that support NetStream and Cameras...

Earlier this year, I broke down my own thoughts on what features the service needed to have in order to convince me to switch from Spotify. Those requested features included excellent support for my previously acquired music; well-designed, cross-platform apps; exclusive content; competitive pricing; and a killer radio functionality.

‘All Boats Rise’: Jimmy Iovine & Eddy Cue...

Billboard:

Apple Music, which launches on June 30 with an arsenal of 30 million songs, has been in the works for more than a decade, says Iovine, who first started talking to the Cupertino-based giant on the heels of the iTunes launch in 2003. Now, it’s a reality, boasting on-demand streaming (with an offline component, to help stem the decline of downloads), a 24-hour human-curated radio station (helmed by former BBC DJ Zane Lowe) and a connect function that facilitates direct-to-fan engagement.

It’s a massive undertaking whose impact is sure to be felt almost instantaneously thanks to the 800 million credit cards Apple already has on file. With a click, users can sign up for $9.99 a month — or $14.99 for the family plan, which allows up to six accounts — price points that, Cue says, took much deliberation.

These interviews are always interesting not only for what they say but what they don’t say. Notwithstanding Iovine’s “unpracticed” appearance and Eddy Cue...

Apple Music will stream at 256kbps like iTunes Match

Specific details about Apple Music are still rolling out after the iPhone maker announced its new subscription music service at WWDC yesterday. Music quality for streaming and offline playback is bound to be one concern for potential members and it appears Apple will be taking a conservative approach, according to Slashgear.

Apple Music will be at 256 kbps. In comparison, Beats Music uses a 320 kbps bitrate, as does Spotify, while Tidal offers a high-bitrate option.

By default, Beats Music only streamed at the higher 320kbps MP3 quality on the web and when the setting was changed within the mobile app. Download quality, however, did default to the higher quality version of tracks when available....

He’s a self-proclaimed Apple fanboy, and he was the guy that wrote the song played during the opening to the Antennagate press conference.

Unsurprisingly, he’s back again with a music video going over Apple’s announcements from WWDC 2015. Covering the additions in Mac OS X El Capitan, the latest coming to iOS 9, and Eddy Cue dancing on stage, his song pretty much covers it all. And there’s a bit of humor packed in as well, mentioning Swift going open source and comparing it to...

Following yesterday's debut of Apple Music, Jimmy Iovine and iTunes Chief Eddy Cue sat down with Billboard to discuss the new service and app, which combine on-demand streaming music with 24/7 radio and a social networking platform where artists can interact with fans.

According to Cue, the $9.99 individual price point for Apple Music wasn't a sticking point for the company as some earlier reports suggested, but the company was invested in negotiating a reasonable family subscription price. Apple Music lets up to 6 family members share an account for $14.99, a price point that Cue says will get entire families on board with the service.

I think the cost of an album for a month of subscription is fair. Could you argue, $7.99 or $8.99? Who cares. I...

Yesterday's WWDC keynote will probably be best remembered for the overlong, awkward, and uncharacteristically unpolished Apple Music reveal that closed it out. But what I'm left thinking about the most is the iPad Air 2—all of a sudden it makes a lot more sense than it did when it launched.

Even at the time, it was clear that the iPad Air 2's hardware was created in anticipation of something bigger. There's nothing in iOS 8, save perhaps Safari tab reloading, that makes full use of the A8X's beefy tri-core CPU, its GPU, and its 2GB of RAM. It was faster, but anything it could do could also be done by the fourth-gen iPad from late 2012. This was noted in many reviews of the device, including...

Hands-On Look at iOS 9 and OS X 10.11 El Capitan

With iOS 9, there are several underlying improvements that improve battery life and reduce the amount of storage space the operating system takes up, a huge benefit for users with 16GB devices. Siri's become more intelligent, and the whole OS has been updated with "Proactive" features that help you better manage your life.

Apple steps up security with native two-factor and 6...

Nestled in the middle of iOS 9 announcements were two security-related bumps: Apple now suggests you sete a six-digit passcode instead of a four-digit one; and two-factor authentication becomes a built-in part of iOS (and OS X) rather than an afterthought.

Orders of magnitude harder

The first change is easier to explain. It’s up to 100 times harder to crack a truly random six-digit code (that is, not a pattern like “111111” or “123456”) than the same four-digit code. While brute forcing 10,000 codes into an iOS device seems unlikely, a set of researchers recently exploited a power-off issue in iOS devices to create an automated four-digit cracking system. Breaking the code takes from 6 seconds to 17 hours, they say.

When Apple enters a new market, it always shakes things up enough to warrant some concerns from its competitors and Apple Music is no different. Rdio, Spotify, and Pandora have each responded to the Apple Music announcement in their own way:

Spotify has yet to address Apple Music as a company, but CEO Daniel Ek posted a cryptic tweet while Tim Cook and Jimmy Iovine were on stage introducing the streaming music platform. Since deleted, Ek tweeted “Oh ok,” seemingly in response to Apple Music and some of the claims Apple made regarding its competitors. Ek deleted the tweet quickly after posting it.

The new app, called ‘Move to iOS’ will be released this fall with iOS 9 and is one of two apps targeting the Android platform, the other being Apple Music.

According to Apple, the apps will allow Android users the ability to securely transfer “contacts, message history, camera photos and videos, web bookmarks, mail accounts, calendars, wallpaper, and DRM-free songs and books” wirelessly to an iPhone.

Great move by Apple to make this process as easy, painless and efficient as possible.

The new Office Add-in and Office 365 API platforms give you integrated Office experiences with your favorite apps and the apps you use to run your organization. On this week’s show we explore Office extensibility updates and take a tour of solutions from Salesforce, SAP, Uber, Do and Smartsheet across Office applications, Office Online in the browser and even Office for iPad.

The game of marketing has changed. Are you playing by the new rules?

Today’s landscape of digital and social tools, sophisticated analytics, and internet-savvy consumers has resulted in a new frontier for marketers. Marketing has now entered the age of the empowered and informed buyer where the customer is at the center of every marketing decision.

It never hurts when a programming language becomes accessible to a wider audience.

During the WWDC keynote on Monday, Apple announced that Swift 2, the update to its Swift programming language, would receive significant changes.

6 headaches Apple is fixing in iOS 9

Apple’s iOS 9 has plenty of major features to look forward to, such as a more intelligent Siri, transit maps, and, and side-by-side iPad apps. Just as important, however, are the little things—the minor headaches of previous iOS versions that Apple is now getting around to alleviating.

To recap, here are six iPhone and iPad annoyances that will disappear in iOS 9:

1. A less-confusing shift key

Pop quiz: On the default iOS keyboard, are the letters uppercase when the shift key is gray, or white? Unless you bother to memorize, this issue has likely been a constant source of confusion since iOS 7. (The answer, by the way, is white.) As 9to5Mac notes, hitting shift in iOS 9 will toggle the letters on the keyboard between uppercase and lowercase, so there’s no ambiguity about...
