Report: Senate members being briefed by FBI on...

Just over a week ago, the FBI revealed that it had successfully unlocked the iPhone 5c used by one of the San Bernardino gunmen without the help of Apple. To this day, the FBI has not publicly disclosed the method it used to gain access, and it’s unclear if it ever will. The National Journal, however, reports today that the FBI has been briefing members of the Senate on how it was able to gain access to the locked iPhone.

FBI Telling Congress How It Hacked iPhone

An anonymous reader quotes a report from The Verge: According to a new report in National Journal, the FBI has already briefed Senator Diane Feinstein (D-CA) on the methods used to break into the iPhone at the center of Apple's recent legal fight. Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) is also scheduled to be briefed on the topic in the days to come. [Feinstein and Burr are both working on a new bill to limit the use of encryption in consumer technology, expected to be made public in the weeks to come.] The disclosures come amid widespread calls for the attack to be made public, particularly from privacy and technology groups. However the FBI's new method works, the ability to unlock an iPhone without knowing its passcode represents a significant break in Apple's security measures, one Apple would surely like to protect against if it hasn't already. Just days after the FBI broke into the terrorist's iPhone, the FBI told law enforcement agencies it would assist them with unlocking phones and...

The best iOS apps for taking notes with Apple Pencil...

After resisting the temptation for several months, I finally broke down this week and bought an Apple Pencil. I purchased the initial iPad Pro back in November when it first came out, but sold it and switched to the 9.7-inch model last week, and so far I’ve been very happy with that choice. Figuring that I’ll probably stick with this size iPad Pro for at least a year, I decided the Apple Pencil would be a worthwhile investment. And I was right.

I was skeptical of the Apple Pencil when it was first announced, as I assumed it would just be the same as the tacky styluses third-parties had been making for years, but after using it I’ve realized just how wrong I was. The thing that I noticed very early on in my time with the Apple Pencil though, was how crazy good the palm rejection is. Writing with...

Facebook AI Fills In the Photo Blanks for Blind Users

The goal is to help the blind community experience Facebook the same way others enjoy it. People using screen readers on iOS devices will hear a description of the items contained in a photo when they swipe past pictures on a Facebook page. The feature is available in English for iOS users in the United States, the UK, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

However, some Chinese manufacturers have made iPhone SE-sized casings styled like the iPhone 6s, which prompted one publication to build their own fully functional so-called "iPhone 6 SE."

Soon, you might finally be able to get rid of the Stocks app that’s been haunting your home screen for years.

AppAdvice has uncovered new code in iTunes metadata that suggest Apple might soon give iOS users the option to hide certain native apps from their iPhones. The new iTunes metadata shows that every app in the App Store has been getting two new keys labeled “isFirstParty” and “isFirstPartyHideableApp.” If Apple were to set this value to “true” on a certain app, iOS users will be able to remove that app from their home screens.

Top FBI Attorney Worried About WhatsApp Encryption

An anonymous reader shares an article on USNews:WhatsApp on Tuesday announced that all types of messages on the latest version of its app are now automatically protected by end-to-end encryption, and the FBI's top attorney is worried some of the platform's more than 1 billion global users will take advantage of the move to hide their crime- or terrorism-related communications. FBI General Counsel James Baker said in Washington on Tuesday that the decision by the Facebook-owned messaging platform to encrypt its global offerings "presents us with a significant problem" because criminals and terrorists could "get ideas." "If the public does nothing, encryption like that will continue to roll out," he said. "It has public safety costs. Folks have to understand that, and figure out how they are going to deal with that. Do they want the public to bear those costs? Do they want the victims of terrorism to bear those costs?"Maybe the government shouldn't have imposed so many surveillance...

How-To: Take better photos, videos, and selfies with...

If you consider your iPhone 6s to be a very good camera, then the 9.7-inch iPad Pro should equally be considered an acceptable camera in terms of quality. Both have 12‑megapixel iSight cameras on the back with True Tone flashes, 5-megapixel FaceTime HD cameras on the front with Retina Flash, and Live Photos on both sides, plus 4K video capture.

The only difference is obviously the form factor of each device: the iPhone’s candy bar shape makes it look like a digital camera, whereas the iPad may only be socially acceptable as a camera if no one realizes you’re actually taking photos. That’s kinda the trick for me; shoot with the iPad if I’m already using it for something else, otherwise go for the iPhone first.

That context is mostly around the house where no one can see (read: judge) me, but seriously using the 9.7-inch iPad Pro as a convenient camera has made me realize the iPad’s Camera app has a few drawbacks compared to the same app on the iPhone. Part of...

It was perhaps unimaginable just a few years ago, but live streaming has become particularly popular thanks to apps like Meerkat and, most notoriously, Twitter-acquired Periscope. Not to be left out, Facebook joined the race last summer — albeit initially only for public figures via the dedicated Mentions app — and then pushed beyond earlier this year with the open introduction of “Facebook Live” in the US, a feature within the mobile app that allows anyone to live stream to their friends.

The experiment seems to be working well, and with the app update — which begins its rollout today — Facebook is adding a variety of features to...

This week, Glenn interviews three professionals who use the 12.9-inch iPad Pro either as their primary machine, or at least to do a lot of the work they used to do on a desktop or portable Mac.

They are: Chip Suddereth, a school administrator by day and podcaster by night. He’s the host of Two-minute Time Lord and the cohost of Audio Guide to Babylon 5. Tom Bridge is an IT and system administrator, and a principal at Technolutionary. Finally,...

In December 2015, Tim Cook received the Ripple of Hope Award during the organization’s gala in New York City. The award was granted for his commitment to sustainable business practices and his lifelong commitment to human rights.

“Tim knows the importance of advocating for and representing people who have not been heard. He has integrity and does not shy away from challenging issues when he knows they are right and just,” Kerry Kennedy, President and CEO of Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights, said. “Tim is deeply committed to the social justice work that he is helping Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights accomplish.”

WhatsApp Encryption Ups Privacy Ante


WhatsApp on Tuesday told its 1 billion users that their communications would be better protected from prying eyes with end-to-end encryption. The company always has made data and communication security a priority, according to Jan Koum and Brian Acton, the founders of WhatsApp, which Facebook bought for $19 billion in 2014. "From now on when you and your contacts use the latest version of the app, every call you make, and every message, photo, video, file, and voice message you send, is end to end encrypted by default," they said.

AppleInsider: iPhone SE selling well, experiencing...

Over the first weekend of sales of the new iPhone SE, we saw a lot of headlines that talked about "lackluster" sales of the new 4-inch phone. Those appear to have been based on the lack of the usual lines that accompany the launch of Apple's flagship iPhones like the iPhone 6s, as AppleInsider checked a number of stores and found that the iPhone SE is not only showing shipping delays in many places, but is actually out of stock in a number of stores.

For example, the site found that "the fastest a new iPhone SE will arrive from Apple in the U.S. is next Tuesday, April 12, and that's just select models." AppleInsider found other models to be unavailable until April 20. 

That's not all -- the 16GB models seem to have better availability than the 64GB devices, with the site finding that the more expensive model with additional storage...

Of all the kitchen gadgets I own, the rice cooker is possibly my second-most favorite after the tea kettle. Sure, I could make rice in a pot, but the dedicated rice cooker makes it much easier to attend to other details instead of watching the pot. Xiaomi's pressurized version might prove even better. It recognizes the type of rice from a barcode scan and cooks it perfectly, keeping more nutrients locked in, since it won't let steam escape. It has a nonstick, cast iron pot that should help ensure even cooking.

Through access to contacts, a user’s full photo library was also visible.

Apple has reportedly fixed a vulnerability that could have allowed hackers to bypass the passcode on iPhone 6s and 6s Plus running iOS 9.3.1 in order to access the address book and photos.

The bypass technique was discovered by researchers from German security firm Evolution Security and takes advantage of Siri's integration with apps like Twitter or Facebook and the new 3D Touch feature that's only available on the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus models.

On a locked device, attackers can call up Siri and ask to search for items that contain @ tags using Twitter, Facebook or Yahoo. Then they can locate a string like an email address and use the 3D Touch hard push to bring out the context menu for it.

For more than 50 years, people have been watching TV at night, often prior to going to sleep. This has only expanded in the era of devices, especially with the introduction of Apple’s iOS devices along with those of its competitors.

Worse, these devices, which tend to be set to a bright level, are now directly in front of the user, often less than two feet away at the time before use.

With that in mind, Dr. Raymond Soneira of DisplayMate has done an extended study and breakdown of Night Shift, Apple’s light shifting technology that’s recently made its way to the iOS.

With the rapidly increasing use of these displays, particularly at night, vision and sleep researchers discovered that watching a display at night can not only make it harder to fall asleep (up...

WhatsApp turns on end-to-end encryption

Facebook-owned WhatsApp has strengthened the encryption of its widely used instant messaging app, a development that in theory makes it harder for law enforcement to gain access to communications.

WhatsApp’s founders said Tuesday that the application now implements end-to-end encryption, which means only authorized users can decrypt messages.

“The idea is simple: when you send a message, the only person who can read it is the person or group chat that you send that message to,” Jan Koum and Brian Acton wrote in a blog post. “No one can see inside that message. Not cybercriminals. Not hackers. Not oppressive regimes. Not even us.”

The thing about the iPhone SE is that there’s basically nothing that’s new about it. It’s a four-year-old phone design filled with six-month-old parts, and it’s the rare product that amounts to exactly the sum of its parts. You could almost write a review of it without laying hands on it.

So we’ll spend a little time...

Smartphones replace personal computers as the go-to...

Limelight Networks, Inc., which specializes in digital content delivery, today unveiled the results of its annual State of Digital Downloads report, the latest in its studies of consumer perceptions and behaviors around digital content. The study found nearly half (45%) of consumers are more likely to download digital content of all types than they were a year ago. 

In just the past few months the smartphone has displaced the personal computer as the dominant device for the download and consumption of content. More users downloaded content onto Android-based smartphones (62%), while Apple’s iPad (used by 43%), was nearly tied with Android tablets (45%). As such, the Google Play store led the way as the prevalent destination...

FBI says it doesn’t know if San Bernardino iPhone is...

Many were skeptical that the work iPhone at the centre of the San Bernardino controversy would prove in any way useful to the FBI given that the shooters left it untouched while destroying their personal phones, and so far that skepticism seems justified. Despite having had access to all the data on the phone for more than a week, the FBI has apparently not yet found anything of value.

This change comes two weeks after Apple released iOS 9.3 to the public and less than a week after the release of iOS 9.3.1, which squashed a handful of bugs that plagued the initial version.

Apple fixes Siri passcode bypass flaw and Night...

Early this morning, we told you about a new iPhone 6s passcode bypass vulnerability that allowed handlers to access photos and contact details without needing to verify with a passcode or Touch ID. The Lock screen vulnerability was made possible by Siri, and let users bypass the security provided by the Lock screen passcode and/or Touch ID.

If there’s a positive spin to put on such a vulnerability, it’s that fixes can be implemented server side without the need for an iOS update. Apple today has fixed the passcode bypass method by forcing Siri to request your Lock screen passcode whenever a user tries to search Twitter via Siri while at a secured Lock screen more…

All the news that’s fit to tweet?

HP Debuts Skinniest Laptop Ever


HP on Tuesday unveiled its latest challenger to Apple's laptops, touting it as the thinnest laptop in the world. At 10.4 mm, the HP Spectre's chassis is as thin as a triple-A battery, the company noted. The Spectre is powered by Intel Core i5 and i7 processors and weighs in at 2.45 pounds. It has a 13.3-inch Gorilla glass display, and stereo speakers from Bang & Olufsen. The new line "carries some of the thin design and high-end finishing touches that HP introduced in its EliteBook Folio," said tech analyst Charles King.

HP Says It Made the World's Thinnest Laptop

An anonymous reader writes: HP claims that its Spectre laptop, unveiled April 5, is the world's thinnest laptop. It measures 10.4mm thick or 0.41 inches. That would mean that it's slimmer than the 12-inch MacBook (0.52), MacBook Air (0.68 inches) and Dell XPS 13 (0.59 inches) at their thickest points. It's also thinner than the 0.52-inch Razer Blade Stealth. The new notebook is equipped with an advertised nine-hour battery life, 13-inch HD 1920 x 1080 resolution display, and sixth generation Intel Core i5 or i7 processor. The Spectre will be available for pre-order on April 25 for $1,169.99 before it hits Best Buy stores on May 22 for $1,249.99.

Smile Software is changing practically everything about TextExpander except what TextExpander actually does: Letting you save chunks of text or other data as “snippets” that are automatically inserted when you type an abbreviation. The new version of the beloved utility is aimed at more seamlessly sharing snippets among teams, there’s a new web portal at TextExpander.com to manage your snippets online, and it’s even expanding to a new platform with a beta version of TextExpander for Windows.

But the other big change is to the purchase model. Previously, you paid for a TextExpander license up front, with upgrade pricing available if you already owned a previous version. With the new TextExpander, Smile is moving to a subscription model with two pricing tiers. After a free 30-day trial, the “Life Hacker”...

Twitter adds a Message button so you can quickly...

Since its inception, Twitter has been a very public forum. But now, Twitter wants to be a player in private messages.

On Tuesday, Twitter began rolling out a new Message button that you will see underneath each Tweet on your Timeline, right next to the Retweet and heart icons. Tapping on the Message button launches a Direct Message to share that Tweet privately with another Twitter user. The new feature will be available to both iOS and Android users by updating the Twitter app.

According to Twitter product manager Somas Thyagaraja, this new messaging button stemmed from user-feedback after the number of Twitter DMs grew by 60 percent in 2015. In just the latter half of last year, the number of DMs with Tweets shared privately grew even more, by 200 percent.

As noted by AppleInsider, Apple has inaugurated @applenews, a Twitter feed dedicated to promoting "top stories and great reads" from the Apple News app for iOS.

Highlighted content is curated by Apple's U.S. editorial team, according to the first post on the feed. Though Apple has controlled the account for months, there was no content posted until today, according to AppleInsider.

Apple News rolled out in September 2015 along with iOS 9. It replaced the Newsstand app. Apple says that “articles are pulled from a wide range of sources, from top news organizations to indie publications.” So when is News coming to the Mac?

Apple appears to be taking its new Apple News app to the place that news often breaks (then spreads), Twitter. The Twitter handle @applenews has been dressed for the job for several months now although it’s been inactive before today and it isn’t yet marked “verified” by Twitter; Apple execs Eddy Cue and Roger Rosner are among those that follow the account, however, which suggests it’s an official Apple property. Here’s the first tweet that was shared today:

Follow us here for top stories & great reads from your favorite publishers, curated by our U.S. editors.

Former Apple execs form NextEquity, a venture...

Fred Anderson, former Apple chief financial officer, and Avie Tevanian, former Apple senior vice president of Software Engineering, are teaming up in a new venture capital fund dubbed NextEquity, reports Bloomberg.

NextEquity is a play on NeXT, the company Jobs started after he was ousted from Apple in 1985. Tevanian said the Menlo Park, California, firm has already made a few investments but declined to name them. The goal is to back tech start-ups.

Anderson was executive vice president and chief financial officer at Apple from 1996 to 2004. His responsibilities at Apple included oversight of the company's controller, treasury, investor relations, tax, information systems, internal audit, facilities and human resources operations.

Why all printers suck (even the best ones)

Having used home and small office printers for over 25 years, it’s hard to argue with their premise. I have an Epson R2000 printer I love – when it works. But I dread having to print something on it because I know, even if I printed just fine yesterday, some problem will crop up when I use it today to make me waste time, energy, paper, and ink troubleshooting it.

Apple might bake Force Touch into Magic Mouse 3

Apple’s Magic Mouse 2 debuted last year with just one noticeable difference over its predecessor: a weirdly placed Lightning port for recharging. Otherwise, there’s not a whole lot of magic going on. But that could change in the next version of the mouse if a patent just granted to Apple is any indication.

The patent, first spotted by Patently Apple, covers a Magic Mouse with Force Touch sensors that would add a slew of new functions without any extra effort on your part. The sensors would recognize different levels of clicks—a normal one and a deeper one that would unlock features, like the Apple Watch does.

Sphero’s BB-8 droid is learning a new trick in time for the Star Wars: The Force Awakens Blu-ray release. Users can now set up the toy hover-droid to react in sync with the film, whistling and whirring at all the appropriate moments.

This does take some dedication, however. As Gizmodo notes, users will want to keep their smartphones plugged in, because the BB-8 companion app must run throughout the movie and listen for audio cues via the phone’s microphone. (The app also chimes in with its own fun facts and movie details as you watch.)
