Hacker Group That Hit Twitter, Facebook, Apple and...

itwbennett writes: The hacker group, which security researchers from Kaspersky Lab and Symantec call Wild Neutron or Morpho, has broken into the networks of over 45 large companies since 2012. After the 2013 attacks against Twitter, Facebook, Apple and Microsoft were highly publicized, the group went underground and temporarily halted its activity. However, its attacks resumed in 2014 and have since intensified, according to separate reports released Wednesday by Kaspersky Lab and Symantec.

A change in the way OS X 10.10.4 and iOS 8.4 handles security keys has caused a number of users -- specifically those using Gmail -- to see SMTP send failures and even app crashes. Luckily, there's an easy fix for both users and system admins looking for a permanent server-side solution.

Apple debuts “If it’s not an iPhone, it’s not an...

Apple today uploaded a pair of new ads to YouTube. The first ad, entitled “Hardware & Software,” showcases the fact that Apple is responsible for both major aspects of the iPhone, making for a more seamless and stable experience. The obvious goal here is to advertise the fact that with an Android device, you get hardware made by a manufacturer and software made by Google.

The second ad is entitled “Loved” and seemingly showcases how happy iPhone users are. Apple touts in the video that 99 percent of people who own an iPhone love it.

Both of today’s new advertisements end with the slogan, “If it’s not an iPhone, it’s not an iPhone.” The videos can be seen below. Apple’s other recent major iPhone ad campaign, Shot on iPhone 6, heavily showcased...

A bad year for HTC

Have you heard about HTC lately? 2015 is shaping up to be an awful year for the company. In March the company had a market cap of $4.06 billion, and today—only a few months later—it’s worth less than half of that. The stock price, at about two bucks a share, is at a 10-year low. HTC just wrapped up the second quarter of 2015, where it posted a net loss of $258 million. And the trend is downwards—year over year, HTC’s monthly revenue was down 38% in April, 48% in May, and 60% in June.

I feel bad for HTC. They have tried to make some good products, but Samsung’s tactics have pushed them down.

Gunpoder Malware Masquerades as Lesser Evil


Palo Alto Networks' Unit 42 team on Tuesday published a report on Gunpoder, a family of Android malware that can evade detection scans by pretending to be adware. Cong Zheng and Zhi Xu authored the report. The team discovered the new Android malware last November. Its new report aims to spur cooperation within the security community to mount defenses against the threat. The name "Gunpoder" comes from the main malicious component the researchers identified in the malware code.

Opinion: Apple News shows that Apple wants to...

Every year, a handful of clued-in pundits start floating “wouldn’t it be nice” Apple OS ideas just before the features actually show up in Apple’s products. Right before iOS 7 debuted a flattened design, at a point when few people even knew what skeuomorphism was, pundits began to ask, “boy, doesn’t skeuomorphism stink?” Then ahead of iOS 9, when people might have wondered what new marquee features were coming to Apple’s operating systems, pundits said, “hey, wouldn’t it be nice if Apple focused on iOS and OS X stability this year?” Recently, a new topic came up just before Apple debuted the beta version of News for iOS 9: “Web advertising really sucks — wouldn’t it be great if that all went away?”

Advertising is an easy target: it’s an eyesore, slows down web pages, and — in the wrong hands — compromises your privacy. But whether you accept...

The company plans to build two versions of the Reload Redacted vehicle, based on a design by engineer Kevin Lo, who took first place in the Project [REDACTED] competition. Local Motors earlier this year demonstrated a concept vehicle at the Detroit Auto Show, where it printed out the entire body during the event.

OS X El Capitan, iOS 9 public betas now available

The few, the proud, the beta testers. If you're one of those folks who either has a wish to possibly break your production Mac, iPhone or iPad or is just incredibly impatient, you can now get the OS X 10.11 El Capitan and iOS 9 public betas. All you need is an Apple ID.

The public betas are available on Apple's Beta Software Program website, following the launch of the third developer betas that were seeded to registered iOS and OS X developers. Apple does public betas in order to increase the size of the pool of testers. Apple recommends keeping a backup of your stable OS X and iOS installations before installing the beta.

Right now, the benefits of installing the public betas are rather slim as most developers have not rewritten their apps to take advantage of the new features in both iOS 9 and OS X 10.11. But if you   really want to try some of the multitasking features in iOS 9 on your iPad Air 2...

So far today is shaping up to be software Christmas, with a public beta of OS X El Capitan, as well as a final version of Microsoft Office 2016 for Mac shipping to Office 365 subscribers. Don’t let your iPhone and iPad feel neglected, though—Apple is also launching the public beta of iOS 9.

Now, a beta is a beta. Don’t get swept up in the excitement and forget that this software isn’t final and could have bugs, so you might want to think twice about putting it on your everyday iPhone. That said, developers are on their third beta of iOS 9 and we haven’t heard about any major problems, so if you’re feeling brave, here’s how to get the beta and what you can expect when you do.

ars.AD.queue.push(["xrailTop", {sz:"300x250", kws:[], collapse: true}]);

Up until now, Apple has kept beta versions of major iOS releases locked away behind its $99-a-year developer paywall. You didn't need to actually be a developer to sign up for an account and play with the software, but you either needed to pay up or violate the terms of use by getting someone else to set you up.

This year, that changes. Apple has released a public beta of iOS 9 to anyone who wants to try it out, no strings attached. This preview is for people who want to know what they're getting before they install the beta and for people who want to know what's coming without putting work-in-progress software on their own phones.

This preview will skip many of the lower-level things we normally cover in our iOS reviews, including performance, battery life, general stability, and the amount of storage space used, as well as some security features and new APIs....

Apple releases the first iOS 9 public beta

Apple has been running OS X public betas for both Yosemite and El Capitan, but it only began offering public betas for iOS in March, and those were only for smallish point updates. Now the company is taking a bigger step: it just released the first public beta of iOS 9, the next major release of the company's mobile operating system due out this fall.

iOS 9 is mostly focused on polishing up the big additions in iOS 7 and iOS 8, but there are still new things for people to play with. It refines the iOS 7-era UI with the new Apple-designed San Francisco typeface. It includes a more versatile version of Siri that responds better to natural phrases like "show me pictures from last week" and can present information more proactively. The Notes app is better at adding and organizing links, photos, and other things, Maps picks up public transit directions in select cities, and a new News app...

The developer beta of OS X El Capitan has been available since WWDC in June, but to get it you needed to sign up for one of Apple's $99-a-year developer accounts. Today, as promised, the company is expanding the beta to include any member of the general public with an Apple ID and the courage required to install it.

There doesn't appear to be any kind of limit on the number of people who can sign up for El Capitan, while the Yosemite beta last year was only available to the first million people to sign up. The first public beta build is about the same as Developer Beta 3, which was also released this week.

The new build of the operating system should be broadly similar to the first developer beta we looked at a month or so ago, just with better stability and...

Foremost in the revamped suite is the new look, which uses the metro-style user interface to each of the apps. New features have been added, but as always, Microsoft hasn't exactly brought the Mac version to true parity with its Windows offering. For example, while Mac users are now able to edit Word documents as a group in real time, Excel's Quick Analysis feature still isn't available to Mac users.

Subscriptions to Office 365 start at just US$69.99 per year. Microsoft is promising updates and new features quarterly to take away the sting of subscribing, but a separate standalone version will be...

The tech sector does love its hype. Every new product is revolutionary. All new apps are ground-breaking. Everything anyone ever launched is going to change the way we do X. Almost without exception, it isn’t, they aren’t and it doesn’t.

But the iPod in 2001 definitely qualified. That simple, clever marketing slogan – “a thousand songs in your pocket” – beautifully summarised something that really was revolutionary. For the first time ever, we could carry close to a hundred albums in a device that slipped into our pocket and could go everywhere with us. Most of us listened to a lot more music in a lot more places.

It also propelled Apple along a new path. It’s no exaggeration to say that without the iPod, there would likely never have been an iPhone. The iPod revolutionized music and also transformed Apple.

Smartwatches and fitness bands promise to help you get healthier, but about a third of wrist-worn activity trackers are abandoned after six months. One health app developer decided to see if the Apple Watch was a different story, or if Apple’s watch would be relegated to a junk drawer with other unwanted tech two months in.

The team at Hello Heart, an app that helps iPhone and Apple Watch owners monitor their blood pressure, found that watch owners were more engaged with their health than iPhone-only users. More than 70 percent of Hello Heart’s survey sample of 2,000 Apple Watch users still track their blood pressure on the watch nine weeks after buying the device.

For the first time, it will also include free 4G LTE data. Postpaid, prepaid and business customers will be able to make use of it from Wednesday, July 15th. It’s a killer move, and effectively erases the virtual borders between the U.S. and its neighboring countries.

Unlike the current Simple Global feature, when a T-Mo subscriber crosses the Mexican or Canadian borders, they won’t be reduced down to EDGE speeds. They retain 4G LTE connectivity seamlessly, providing there is LTE coverage in that...

Apple Drops Recovery Key From Two-Factor...

eggboard writes: If you've ever turned on what's now called "two-step verification" for an Apple ID, you had to create a Recovery Key. Lose this 14-digit code and have your password reset (because of hacking attempts against you), and you might lose access forever to purchases and data, as Owen Williams almost did. Apple confirmed today that starting with its public betas of OS X 10.11 and iOS 9, two-factor authentication won't have a Recovery Key. Instead, if you have to reset a password or lose access to devices, you'll have to go through an account verification process with human beings.

Users tried a variety of different methods, but were ultimately left with one option: send their Watch into Apple and allow them to do the restore. With today’s launch of watchOS 2.0 beta 3, Apple has officially confirmed that there is no way to downgrade to an earlier version of watchOS without sending your device into Apple.

Apple drops Recovery Key in new two-factor...

In early June, Apple said two-factor authentication would be tightly integrated into OS X 10.11 El Capitan and iOS 9, but provided little detail as to what that means. The current setup is scattered across sites and methods in order to deliver a second one-time use, time-limited code or other method of verification when a user logs in to an Apple site or on an Apple device with an Apple ID set up for it.

Apple today posted a detailed explanation about how two-factor authentication works starting with the public betas of iOS 9 and El Capitan.

Among other changes, the Recovery Key option that has tripped up users in the past, and led in some cases to users having to abandon an Apple ID as permanently unavailable, has been removed, an Apple spokesperson confirmed. With the...

In addition to adding the new News app, iOS 9 beta 3 also made a much-needed enhancement to the folder functionality on the iPad. In prior versions of iOS, users were restricted to a 3×3 layout of apps on the iPad, meaning that there were 3 rows of 3 apps on the device, for a total of 9 apps per page. With iOS 9 beta 3, however, users can now have a 4×4 setup of apps in folders on the iPad.

 That means there can be 16 apps per page, up from 9 in previous versions. Seeing that iOS supports 15 pages of apps within a folder, today’s change means that each folder can now house 240 apps. Previously, folders could only contain 135...

Tidal launches new family plan -- still not cheaper...

Exclusive Rihanna videos apparently were not enough, so Tidal has begun cost-cutting to lure in new listeners.

The celeb-owned streaming service has introduced a family tier to its Premium and HiFi subscriptions. Starting today you can add a family member to your account for half the price of the original subscription cost. For Tidal Premium, this means that adding a family member will cost $5 extra a month, in addition to the $10 monthly subscription cost. Tidal has a limit of five family members in its new family plan.

The Verge notes that the Tidal Premium family plan is more or less the exact price of family plans offered by Spotify and Rdio, although Spotify has signaled that it will lower its price to remain competitive. Apple Music is still the most affordable option for a household full of audiophiles. It offers a $15-a-month plan for up to six family members.

Apple may have avoided $533 million iTunes patent...

Reuters is reporting today that a $532.9 million fine against Apple awarded to patent troll Smartflash LLC has been thrown out by a federal judge. US District Judge Rodney Gilstrap said jurors who awarded the damages to Smartflash on February 24 may have been "confused" by his instructions on how to calculate royalties. The jury found that Apple's iTunes software infringed three patents owned by Smartflash. 

Apple had protested the damages as being too high because the jurors might have considered the entire market value of the products instead of focusing just on patented features. Gils trap has set a new trial to determine the proper level of damages to be awarded in Tyler, Texas, where Smartflash is based. Smartflash appears to have set its headquarters in Tyler thanks to the fact that it is located in the Eastern District of Texas, favored by patent...

Apple's getting ready to sell 90 million new...

Apple ordered 70 million to 80 million iPhones to be produced for the initial run of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus last year. It was a record number, and Apple managed to sell more phones than anyone expected. The company is confident that it will sell even more phones this year: Apple just ordered 85 million to 90 million iPhones for this year’s initial run.

According to the Wall Street Journal, Apple is gearing up to sell two 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhone models this year, just like last year. While the hardware isn’t going to change much, the company is expecting demand to be on par with last year, and they might not be wrong—Apple sold 135.6 million iPhones in the first half of the 2015 fiscal year, which ends in September.

Safari Content Blocker, Before and After

Dean Murphy wrote an iOS 9 Safari Content Blocker, and tested it against iMore:

With no content blocked, there are 38 third party scripts
(scripts not hosted on the host domain) running when the homepage
is opened, which takes a total of 11 seconds. Some of these
scripts are hosted by companies I know, Google, Amazon, Twitter
and lots from companies I don’t know. Most of which I assume are
used to display adverts or track my activity, as the network
activity was still active after a minute of leaving the page
dormant. I decided to turn them all off all third party scripts
and see what would happen.

After turning off all third party scripts, the homepage took 2
seconds to load, down from 11 seconds. Also, the network activity
stopped as soon as the page loaded so it should be less strain on
the battery.
