Apple sued over Apple ID verification system

Another day, another lawsuit. A Nevada-base company called Verify Smart Corp. is suing Apple for — wait it for it — patent infringement. The company alleges that Apple's 2-step Apple ID verification system/process violates their patent, reports Patently Apple.

Verify claims Apple makes, uses, tests, markets and sells or otherwise provides a system and method for enabling a user to authenticate their identity when initiating an electronic transaction, using a one-time pass-code sent to the user's mobile phone. The company also alleges that Apple's two-step verification system is designed to enable secure transactions for their customers and infringes on their patent (number 8,285,648) for a "system and method for verifying a user's identify in electronic transactions."

If I’m counting correctly, this is the seventh lawsuit (two involving Shanda Games) filed against Apple this...

Apple announces iSight Camera replacement program...

Apple has started an iSight Camera replacement program for the iPhone 6 Plus. The company says it has determined that, in a small percentage of iPhone 6 Plus devices, the iSight camera has a component that may fail causing your photos to look blurry. 

The affected units fall into a limited serial number range and were sold primarily between September 2014 and January 2015. If your iPhone 6 Plus is producing blurry photos and falls into the eligible serial number range, Apple will replace your device's iSight camera, free of charge.

The iSight camera is located on the back of your iPhone 6 Plus. If your iPhone 6 Plus is in working order and exhibits the symptom described above, use the serial number checker below to see if it is eligible for this program. This program only applies to the iPhone 6 Plus.

Apple Launches Free iPhone 6 Plus Camera Replacement...

Mark Wilson writes: Complaints about the camera of the iPhone 6 Plus have been plentiful, and Apple has finally acknowledged that there is a problem. It's not something that affects all iPhone 6 Plus owners, but the company says that phones manufactured between September 2014 and January 2015 could include a failed camera component. Apple has set up a replacement program which enables those with problems with the rear camera to obtain a replacement. Before you get too excited, it is just replacement camera components that are on offer, not replacement iPhones. You'll need to check to see if your phone is eligible at the program website.

Microsoft Universal Foldable Keyboard review: An...

The iPad accessory market is full of keyboards. Most of them double up as cases, they’re about as big as the iPad and they’re not well optimized for other devices. The Microsoft Universal Foldable Keyboard is different. It’s small enough to carry around in your pocket when folded, and works with iOS, Windows and Android devices. What’s more, you can have it paired to two devices at once and switch between them with the press of a button. It’s safe to say that this is one of the most versatile and portable Bluetooth keyboards on the market. This review was written entirely on it.

When closed, the keyboard measures just 147.6mm wide, 125.3mm high and 11.5mm thin....

Spotify's 'Sorry' Fails to Cut...


Spotify CEO Daniel Ek on Friday issued a public apology for poor communications regarding the company's new privacy policy. The new policy, which took effect Wednesday, immediately triggered alarm. Several tech publications railed against the terms, and Minecraft creator Markus Persson engaged Spotify CEO Daniel Ek in a Twitter debate that ended with Persson and others quitting the music service. In light of Ek's subsequent explanation, the debate now appears focused on whether the brouhaha was justified, or if Spotify's critics profoundly overreacted.

Some of the most colorful protective cases for the iPhone come from Speck, and with the new CandyShell Inked Luxury line (US$49.95, available exclusively at Best Buy), the company has gone all out to beautify and protect your iPhone 6.

The cases are designed with military grade drop protection, and meet or exceed MIL-STD-810G drop test standards. That protection comes from a hard outside shell with a cushioning silicone wrapper inside and on the edges. There’s a slightly raised bezel to protect screens from drops right onto the phone face. With all of the protection, the Inked Luxury cases weigh in at only 1.8 ounces.

While at Tesla, Carlson worked on its Autopilot self-driving program. Prior to his stint at Tesla, he worked on automotive vision systems for Gentex Corp.

Hip-hop artist Dr. Dre’s controversial and storied past was bound to become an issue for Apple at some point after it bought the company he co-founded for $3 billion last year. Now Apple is hoping it can let the rapper’s history live in the past, which is especially tricky as it promotes the biofilm “Compton” depicting the rapper’s entrance into fame.

The biographical film, which was produced with close cooperation from Dr. Dre, has been criticized for omitting decades old allegations that the artist physically abused women. Today both Dr. Dre and Apple released statements addressing the controversy, Dre saying that he deeply apologizes for his actions 25 years ago and adding that “it has forever impacted all of our lives” while Apple said that “we have every reason to believe that he has changed.”...

Since the release of the film “Straight Outta Compton,” rapper Dr. Dre has been under fire for decades-old allegations of misogyny and violence against women. Dre, who has served as an executive at Apple since it acquired Beats Electronics last year, has issued a public apology to the New York Times. “Twenty-five years ago I was a young man drinking too much and in over my head with no real structure in my life. However, none of this is an excuse for what I did. I’ve been married for 19 years and every day I’m working to be a better man for my family, seeking guidance along the way. I’m doing everything I can so I never resemble that man again,” Dre said. Apple lent Dre support in a statement, saying, “Dre has apologized for the mistakes he’s made in the past and he’s said that he’s not the same person that he was 25 years ago. We believe his sincerity and after working with him for a year and a half, we have every reason to believe that he has changed.”

Declining movie attendance, higher ticket prices...

2014 was a terrible year for movie attendance, with audience numbers plunging to the lowest they've been in two decades, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Ironically, this could be good news for Apple.

Approximately 1.26 billion consumers purchased cinema tickets between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31, 2014. That's the lowest number since 1.21 billion in 1995 and not that far ahead of 1994 (1.24 billion). The last time admissions fell below the 1.3 billion mark was in 2011, when only 1.28 billion people when to the movies.

What's more, a 2014 Harris survey of 2,311 adults polled online says that 68% of U.S. adults went to the movies at least once last year. However, two-thirds of Americans say they're going to the movies less often now than a few years ago, with a majority (57%)  adding that they prefer watching films at home over going to the theater.

Today it announced an "Ultimate Test Drive" promotion targeted at iPhone users: Pay $1, and you can try a Galaxy S6 Edge, S6 Edge+, or Galaxy Note 5 for 30 days on your choice of Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, or T-Mobile.

If that sounds appealing to you, visit the samsungpromotions.com site on your iPhone and choose your carrier and model. As of this writing, it looks like some of the phones are "not available" on AT&T, Verizon, or T-Mobile, but this may just be an early bug that gets ironed out as the promotion runs.

We are just weeks away from the launch of the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus, Apple’s newest addition to the iPhone lineup, but the fate of the iPhone 5c successor, a new 4-inch iPhone dubbed by the rumor mill as the ‘iPhone 6c’, remains unclear.

When Apple upped the screen sizes last year, it did not offer an update to the iPhone 5c. This has led much speculation that Apple was saving an update for the 4-inch iPhone to next year to allow the big screened iPhone 6 take the limelight. Since then, there has been many conflicting reports over the release of Apple’s next 4-inch iPhone. A Chinese media report indicates that Apple will actually release a smaller iPhone 6c in November.

I took a close look at Spotlight in Yosemite recently. It’s time for a first look at Spotlight, which gets some new features in El Capitan. Don’t forget that things may change between now and the official release in the fall.

Are this summer's blockbuster movie games any...

Good movies, good games?

Once upon a time, truly not that long ago, nearly every big Hollywood movie release came with a console and portable game to match. They were often expensive ($50-60) and rarely very good, so the reputation of terrible movie games grew and lingered.

Nowadays, with the rise of mobile gaming, film studios have found it much more beneficial to release iOS games—usually free-to-play ones, too—to promote their flicks with less expense and many more potential players to reach. But are these games any good? Well, sometimes—but the middling reputation from the console days hasn’t disappeared. Here’s a look at the biggest iOS movie games of summer 2015, and whether they lived up to their namesakes.

Nothing Could Be Finer Than Point Linux


Point Linux 3.0, dubbed "Agni," combines a solid operating system with a traditional no-frills approach to performance and reliability. In several ways, Point Linux belies the criticisms of Linux desktop newcomers who find that Linux not simple and straightforward to use. Point Linux is easy to install. It has a clear interface. Everything works out of the box. Two reasons for this glowing assessment are Point's roots in Debian GNU/Linux and its integration of either the GNOME 2 fork desktop MATE or a slightly tweaked version of Xfce.

Further expanding on its recent “If it’s not an iPhone, it’s not an iPhone” ad campaign, Apple today has uploaded a new iPhone ad to its YouTube channel. This ad highlights Apple Pay, Apple’s contactless payment solution. The ad marks the first time Apple itself has advertised Apple Pay, although some banks and credit cards have run Apple Pay ads independently.

In the ad, Apple touts that using Apple Pay is more secure than using a credit card, in addition it being faster and simpler than other payment methods. Apple also highlights the fact that Apple Pay is supported in over 1 million stores and counting.

Apple Pay is a faster, easier and safer way to pay for the things you need...

Ashley Madison Hackers: Catch Them if You Can


The Ashley Madison hacker gang will be tough to apprehend, based on our informal survey of security experts. The hackers this week dumped nearly 10 gigabytes of stolen personal data onto the Web -- details gleaned from accounts established on the site, which is dedicated to matching up people who want to engage in extramarital affairs. "In this case, the hackers seemed to have taken all necessary precautions to protect their anonymity while utilizing the Dark Web via Tor," said Troy Gill, a senior security analyst with AppRiver.

Hi, I’m Steve Sande from Apple World Today, and this is a short AWT News Update for August 20, 2015.

With Winter on the way, Yahoo has updated its Yahoo Weather app for iOS with near-term rain and snow alerts. What does that mean? Well, 15 minutes before rain or snow is scheduled to begin, you’ll get an alert. That’s somewhat better than apps like...

According to recent data released by Parks Associates, Apple TV currently is the fourth most popular streaming media device based on 2014 sales, down from third place in 2013. Roku, according to the data, is the most popular streaming media device manufacturer with 34 percent of the market, while Google’s Chromecast accounted for 23 percent of sales.

With streaming media devices on the rise, a new...

Apple will reportedly debut a new, impressively revamped Apple TV at a September event, though the company hasn't firmed this. Hopefully the rumor is true because Apple's set-top box needs something to beef up sales. 

A new Parks Associates report on streaming media devices reports four brands – Amazon, Apple, Google, and Roku – accounted for 86 percent of all units sold to U.S. broadband households in 2014. Roku continues to lead streaming media device sales in the U.S. with 34 percent of units sold in 2014. Google is second with 23%, and new entrant Amazon overtook Apple for third place, says Barbara Kraus, director of Research, Parks Associates. 

On the other hand, the Parks Associates report says that Google Chromecast has 19 percent of the market, the Apple TV has 17 percent, and Amazon Fire TV devices have 14...

Giphy Cam app makes creating a GIF as simple as...

Giphy started out as a platform for finding the perfect GIF to share with friends. Now Giphy is out to make your everyday a GIF-able moment.

On Wednesday, Giphy released a brand-new iOS app, Giphy Cam, for creating GIFs. The free Giphy Cam app uses your iPhone’s front-facing or rear camera to record 5-second clips that are automatically looped. You can send these GIFs via iMessage, share them on social media like Twitter or Instagram, save to the Camera Roll, or AirDrop them from your phone to your desktop and embed them in a blog post. 

“Giphy has always wanted to solve the problem of finding GIFs online and making it easy to share them anywhere, which is clear from our work with messenger apps and communications platforms,” Julie Logan, Queen Glitter Bomb (?) at Giphy, told TechCrunch. “The next natural step was...

Google further updated the Android Support Library to v23, giving devs an easier way to make new platform APIs, such as permissions and fingerprint support, backward compatible.

How-To: Get the best iPhone trade-in price deal to...

Apple releases new iPhones every September, guaranteeing that a massive number of old iPhones will be traded in or sold. The rush is about to start, dramatically changing the market for used iPhones, so I wanted to help you stay ahead of the curve and get the best deal possible. Having just sold my own iPhone 6 Plus to upgrade to a newer model, I have some strong opinions about your smartest options.

Below, I’ve put together a guide to some of the iPhone selling and trade-in options you should consider. There’s no single “right” answer, since some options trade greater convenience for lower prices, and others have higher prices but greater risks or hassles. You can choose the one that’s best for your needs, but whatever you do, make your choice before iPhone values begin to fall…

Spotify wants to cozy up to you and find out more about what you do, where you go, who your contacts are. Does that make you uncomfortable?

The streaming music service just updated its privacy policy with some major changes, first noticed by Forbes. Now Spotify is requesting access to other parts of your phone, like your contacts, your photos, your “media files” (though it doesn’t specify which ones), and your phone’s sensors. Here are the relevant parts:

3.3 Information Stored on Your Mobile Device

Apple Watch How-To: Use Maps for navigation and...

Apple Watch comes with Apple Maps, which allows you to find your current location, pan and zoom around on the area, search the map, get information about a location, call a location, get directions, and more. One of the benefits of having Maps on the watch is that it allows you to get directions without needing to pull out your iPhone, especially if you happen to be lost or in a sketchy neighborhood. In this how-to article, we will discuss how to use Apple Maps on the Apple Watch.

There are several different ways to open up Maps on the Apple Watch. You can open the app by tapping on the icon on the home screen after clicking the Digital Crown from the watch face, use Siri to open Maps by...

Yahoo is today updating its Yahoo Weather app for iOS with near-term rain and snow alerts (not that we needed a reminder that summer is nearly over). With the updated app, users will receive alerts for rain and snow 15 minutes before an expected downpour.

In addition to the new weather alerts, Yahoo notes that the app is now more accurate with improvements made to the methods it uses to “determine and serve forecasts.” As an example, Yahoo says the app will now “even zoom in on microclimates.”

The updated Yahoo Weather app with rain and snow alerts, version 1.8, is available for iPhone and iPad...

1Password iOS update improves Apple Watch &...

A nice update is awaiting 1Password users on iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch today as the password management app has enhanced a few key parts of the experience. On the iPhone 5s and later plus iPad min 3/iPad Air 2, 1Password’s login screen now features a Touch ID button under the Master Password field so you can choose to sign in using your finger print even if you accidentally hit cancel on the first request. Tapping the fingerprint button prompts the system Touch ID unlock screen.

Also useful for Touch ID users on iOS is an improvement to how the app can stay unlocked between uses in different apps. Previously 1Password’s extension in other apps required being unlocked by password, passcode, or Touch ID each time, but now the 1Password extension and 1Password app share the same unlock time...

My crystal ball says no Skylake-equipped Macs before...

Intel has given some details about its upcoming Skylake processors, sharing some info of the processor's architecture. What we don't know is when we'll see it in Macs, though I'm not expecting that to happen this year.

Reducing power consumption is Intel's top priority for Skylake. The company is also reducing the size of the processor, resulting in smaller motherboards. What's more, the next gen Intel chip is touted to provide gains of 10x or more and support DDR4 RAM for further speed improvements. However, there are other cool features — assuming the rumors are true.

For example, Skylake will purportedly bring wireless charging and data transfers by adopting the WiGig standard — a technology that enables gigabit-speed communications without using wires. This will form the basis of the wireless docking capability. And perhaps wireless display...
