Apple Pay rival CurrentC may finally roll out in...

When Apple Pay launched last fall, some retailers blocked NFC recognition to keep Apple’s mobile payment service from gaining traction. The reason: CurrentC, a competing service developed by a coalition of merchants like Best Buy, Target, and Wal-Mart that has been rumored for years but hasn’t yet rolled out. CurrentC will finally see the light of day next month, Bloomberg reports.

These days, keeping up with games can be a full-time job. So how do you separate the signal from the noise, the wheat from the chaff, the Temple Runs from the Temple Jumps? Allow us to help by regularly selecting a game You Should Play.

I’ve played some stupid games in my time, but GoatZ, a follow up to the odd PC breakout hit Goat Simulator that has you run around as a goat and cause chaos, may take the top spot. Come on, it’s an open world environment game starring goats—but not just any goats. Zombie goats. Your goal as a zombie goat isn’t just to survive, but to inflict as much damage as possible in your quest to eat brains. Yet the weirdness of it all somehow makes it fun to play, so I’ve...

When an email came through the Apple World Today offices pitching yet another car charger, my first impulse was to yawn. I mean, you can buy these things at the dollar store for the purpose of plugging in your USB-powered devices for a quick charge in the car, so what’s the big deal? Well, a closer look showed that the Secur SP-4003 Six-in-One Car Charger (US$34.99) can do quite a bit more than just charge your iPhone or iPad — it could save your life.

While the video below can pretty much demonstrate all of the features of the SP-4003, here’s a rundown of the features:

  1. Car mobile USB device charger (5V, 1A output)
  2. 2200 mAh battery pack
  3. 150 Lumen LED flashlight with 4 hour life at full charge
  4. Flashing red emergency light with 10 hour life at full charge

Intel’s upcoming processor refresh with Skylake appears to be promising for Mac users awaiting a significant performance upgrade. Internal Intel slides leaked by the website FanlessTech describe the year-over-year advancements and performance improvements from Broadwell to Skylake chips. As Apple is expected to include Skylake processors from Intel in refreshed hardware later this year or early next year, these specs give us a preview of what is likely coming to the Mac’s performance.

As far as advancements go, the upcoming Skylake chipset boasts better low power CPU performance and a 30% longer battery life compared to its predecessor. According to the leaked slide, Broadwell capped out at 8.5 hours with the test configuration...

What to play this weekend: Agar.io

Recently I was hanging out with some friends when someone showed me Agar.io for iPhone (free, universal). "You're a cell who eats other cells while trying to avoid getting eaten yourself," he said.

"That's it?" I said.

"That's it."

Agar.io comes to iOS after a successful run on PC and browser-based play. This mobile version preserves the low-end, no-frills graphics of its siblings and is somehow just as compelling. I've pretty much explained everything there is to know, but here are a few more details.

Game play

Agar.io is a world-wide competition. You'll start with a tiny circle that you can name. The game begins right away and your "cell" appears on what looks like a field of grid paper, along with other cells of various sizes. The point is to grow larger, which you do by running into, or "eating," cells smaller than yourself....

Honda was one of Apple’s launch partners when Apple announced CarPlay, its plan to bring iOS into your car, more than a year ago. Now Honda finally has a timeframe for shipping CarPlay vehicles, but you’ll have to wait for 2016 models.

Honda showed off its 2016 Accord at a media event in Mountain View, California. The new sedan will include both CarPlay and Google’s Android Auto, according to Re/code. Despite its promises to support CarPlay last year, Honda has also been throwing its weight behind Android Auto. The company announced in May that the 2016 Pilot SUV would include Google’s infotainment system.

Google's Nest smart thermostat yanked from the...

It was fun while it lasted, but with HomeKit devices appearing on store shelves, the Google-owned Nest Learning Thermostat is disappearing from the Apple Store.

If you check out the Apple Store online or in-person, you won’t find the famous smart thermostat co-created by former Apple exec Tony Fadell. In its place, the Apple Store is now selling the HomeKit-enabled Ecobee3.

That’s not to say that you can’t find non-HomeKit devices in Apple’s connected home section, but the Nest Thermostat isn’t most smart home devices, as Mashable points out. It’s probably the most well-known thermostat ever—save perhaps the near-ubiquitous Honeywell brand of not-so-smart home...

As Apple’s Shot on iPhone ad campaign illustrates, the iPhone is a capable camera in the right hands. Many people find that it’s the only camera they ever need.

But if you’ve ever wished it could do just a little more without carrying around too much extra bulk, the Manfrotto KLYP+ kit may be worth a look. It’s an iPhone case (available for a range of models) that comes with two screw-on lenses and a combination light and tripod mount. The whole kit comes in at $125 …

The case itself is very plasticky, and to be honest feels a little cheap for something made by a manufacturer of Manfrotto’s standing....

Originally designed by former Apple engineers Tony Fadell and Matt Rogers, the Nest thermostat was at the leading edge of connected smart home products and considered by many to be inspired by an Apple design ethos, particularly when Apple became one of the first retailers to sell the device in 2012.…

According to French web site Nowhereelse.fr, the front panel image was shared by a source close to the story who also said that the iPhone parts are currently in production and ready to be shipped to iPhone 6s assembly lines for use in the Silver and Gold iPhone 6s.

As an “S” upgrade, the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus are not expected to feature physical design changes, so as is expected, the front panels said to be for the iPhone 6s look identical to front panels for the iPhone 6. Previous iPhone 6s and...

Bluelounge Posto: The vital accessory you didn’t...

Every once in a while we get review items that seem a little strange… until we give them a try. The Bluelounge Posto (US$19.95) is one of those accessories that clicked with me the minute I did the one-time assembly and put my headphones onto it.

That’s right; Posto is a headphone stand. It’s rather simple in design, featuring a square base with four nonslip rubber feet, an 8-inch (20 cm) tall post, and a silicone hook that your headphones rest on when not in use.

Bluelounge says that Posto works with any headphones. I was doubtful since I have the strangely-shaped (but wonderful) Blue Mic Mo-Fi headphones, but sure enough, the Mo-Fi set hangs on the Posto nicely.

So is it functional? Yep. Posto is one more accessory that might possibly just keep my desktop clearer in the future. Instead of just tossing my ‘phones onto the desktop and having them take up about 52...

“I don’t understand the doom and gloom”

Just look at the company’s historic success with the iPhone and you can tell that we are indeed living in strange times! So far Apple has taken down Nokia and left Motorola, HTC and Samsung gasping for air. The profits have not stopped flowing to Cupertino. Apple has reported $42.3 billion in net income so far for the first three quarters of this fiscal year. That’s more than the company’s profits for all of 2012.

I’ve said this before, but no company that reports a profit in the billions of dollars should be worried about doom and gloom. It’s based on what Wall Street predicts, which seems flawed to me.

When longtime Apple journalist and fan Jim Dalrymple is angry with Apple, you know something’s wrong. Dalrymple has announced on his blog, The Loop, that he’s “done” with Apple Music after it wrecked his extensive iTunes library. The first problem arose when he tried to add songs from different albums that iTunes saw as duplicates and ignored. Later, it jumbled up his albums, refused to sync between devices, and when he disabled Apple Music, it took 4,700 of his songs with it. “I trusted my data to Apple and they failed. I also failed by not backing up my library before installing Apple Music. I will not make either of those mistakes again,” Dalrymple said.

vivaoporto writes: The Register reports a root-level privilege-escalation exploit that allows one to gain administrator-level privileges on an OS X Yosemite Mac using code so small that fits in a tweet.

The security bug, documented by iOS and OS X guru Stefan Esserwhich, can be exploited by malware and attackers to gain total control of the computer.

This flaw is present in the latest version of Yosemite, OS X 10.10.4, and the beta, version 10.10.5 but is already fixed in the preview beta of El Capitan (OS X 10.11) Speaking of exploits:

Reader trailrunner 7 notes that "HP’s Zero Day Initiative has released four new zero days in Internet Explorer that can lead to remote code execution."

PhotoFast MAX puts speedy data transfer and backup...

PhotoFast MAX (left) and PhotoFast iFlashDrive (right). Photos ©2015, Steven Sande

PhotoFast MAX (starting at US$79.99 for 16GB) is the latest incarnation of what used to be known as the i-FlashDrive. Take a USB 3.0 flash drive, add a Lightning adapter to one end, and toss in an iOS app to organize and view files, and you have an iFlashDrive. Let’s start this review with a bit of history.

Way back in the year 2009 (remember that year?), one nasty little problem showed up with the iPhone — if you wanted to move some large files between it and your Mac or PC, you were stuck trying to do it through iTunes. That didn’t always work, as there were certain file types that just weren’t recognized.

Along came the i-FlashDrive, which at that time had a USB 2.0 connector on one end and a 30-pin dock connector (remember those?) on the other. I found the device to be surprisingly useful, particularly when I wanted...

Though Apple has already announced it will be driving vehicles in certain cities to collect Apple Maps data — it provides an updated location list on its website — iLounge spotted an Apple Maps van today in Tarrytown, N.Y. Tarrytown is located in Westchester County, N.Y., about 25 miles north of midtown Manhattan. The sighting isn’t entirely surprising, but it does give us some idea that Apple’s current data collection may expand significantly…

OPM Director's Resignation Draws Mixed Reactions


The resignation of U.S. Office of Personnel Management Director Katherine Archuleta is drawing mixed reactions from the cybersecurity community. Archuleta's departure on July 10, in the wake of a massive data breach resulting in the theft of the personal information of more than 22 million people, is being characterized by security pros as everything from "necessary" to "unfair." It was "fair, justified and necessary," said Richard Blech, cofounder and CEO of Secure Channels.

IDC: Apple snatches 3% of smartphone users from...

IDC has just released its smartphone market share data for Q2 2015, and at least one thing is clear: Samsung is still struggling, and Apple is still doing really well. The Korean company’s smartphone market share dropped from 24.8% to 21.7% year-over-year, a 3.1 percentage point drop. Conveniently, while other manufacturers made gains as well, Apple’s numbers are up about the same number — 2.4 percentage points year-over-year to 14.1%…...

Apple launched HomeKit last year to unite your smart home accessories under one framework. But we’ve only seen a handful of HomeKit-compatible devices on store shelves, and now manufacturers are saying Apple’s tough security demands are causing the delay.

Devices that use both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth LE are suffering the most, according to Forbes. Apple has stringent requirements for manufacturers aiming to get HomeKit-certified for Bluetooth LE and Wi-Fi accessories: those devices must use 3072-bit keys and Curve25519, the 128-bit elliptic curve, for encrypted key exchange and digital signatures. Those security standards will help HomeKit devices protect against...

How-To: Screen record in full 4K/5K resolution at...

4K and 5K displays are relatively new, but with more and more users upgrading, there is some catching up to do with apps to support the higher resolution screens. That’s why we were pleased when Screenium, one of our favorite screen recording suites, updated earlier this month with some pretty notable new features for Retina, 4K and 5K display users, as well as everyone looking for a solid screen capture solution.

After months of trying different screen casting software and running into issues on 4K and Retina displays, Screenium 3 has finally delivered what we’ve been waiting for. The company has been hard at work on a custom video codec that makes...

Apple Watch charging docks could get less clumsy...

If you’re thinking about buying a third-party charging dock for the Apple Watch, you may want to wait for officially-licensed versions to come around.

Sources have told 9to5Mac that Apple will soon include smartwatch charging modules in its Made for iPhone/iPad/iPod (MFi) licensing program. This will allow for new docks with integrated wireless chargers.

Although several third-party Apple Watch docks are available already—with some even popping up before the smartwatch went on sale—none of them have an actual charger built-in. Instead, users must take Apple’s official charger and snake it through the...

Review: Trinity Delta, the first in-ear headphones...

I’m an on-ear/over-ear headphone guy. To me, the size and weight has always been a price worth paying for the far higher quality and sound isolation they deliver when compared to consumer-grade in-ear headphones.

I’ve tried numerous in-ear headphones, and none have ever felt remotely comparable to me – until now. Trinity is a brand new British company founded by former lead designer at Rockjaw, specifically to create high-quality in-ear monitors (IEMs) at an affordable price. The Delta is the high-end model, at $135/£90, and it takes rather an unusual approach … ...

Accessible Apple: RIP iPod shuffle

1st generation iPod shuffle

For my birthday in the fall of 2005, I received my first iPod, a 1st generation iPod shuffle. Its lack of a display made it the only accessible iPod at the time, as VoiceOver would not begin appearing on the rest of the iPod lineup until the 4th generation nano came out in the fall of 2008.

The iPod traveled with me everywhere. Its long battery life and small size made it both an ideal music player and audiobook listening device.

In the summer of 2006, a family friend warned me that supplies of iPod shuffles were drying up in our local area. Fearing that Apple would discontinue the iPod shuffle family, the decision was made for me to acquire a second iPod Shuffle.

2nd generation iPod shuffle

As it turned out, Apple was not discontinuing the iPod shuffle, but rather was refreshing it for a second generation. I received a 1GB iPod shuffle for my birthday that year. Sometime before the release of the 2GB 2nd generation...

Apple is today launching its Back to School promotion for 2015.

The Mac mini does not participate in the deal.

Alternatively, customers can upgrade for an additional $100 to a pair of wireless Beats Solo2 headphones, rather than the usual $299 price. The announcement is not yet being advertised on Apple.com apart from a small mention on its rebates page. It is surprising that there appears to be no Back to School promotion for iPads this year, despite Apple pushing the tablet into education...
