    Who can blame a company executive, a principle share holder for dumping his stock when he knows it’s only a matter of time that his company is going bust, when your major client decides not to do business with you? It’s a rhetorical question for sure, the money is almost in the bank, all you have to do is deposit it, right? Well, that’s exactly what happened with both the CEO and COO of GT Advanced once they learned that their sapphire production did not meet Apple’s technical and financial goals.

    Tapping the track pad in order to click has become a very popular way for selecting application or texts when using a Macintosh. Its popularity comes from the convinces factor of not having to press down completely on the trackpad every time. However, tap to click tends to be annoying for new users, who may find themselves selecting texts or applications when not desired. Other than tap to click, the trackpad has many other potential capabilities like secondary click, zooming, rotating, and a multitude of gestures. To find these trackpad customizations locate your System Preferences…

    With the growing popularity and declining cost of solid-state drives (SSDs) for Macs and other personal computers, users have becoming increasingly interested in putting third-party SSDs into their machines. But one issue Mac users have been running into involves support for TRIM, a system-level command that allows the operating system and the drive to communicate about which areas of the drive are considered unused and thus ready to be erased and rewritten to. Without TRIM, writes to the drive can see significant slowdowns as the system must read and erase each block on the fly before…
  • Court Rules Police Can Force Users to Unlock iPhones With Fingerprints, But Not Passcodes

    31 Oct 2014 | 12:25 pm
    A Circuit Court judge in Virginia has ruled that fingerprints are not protected by the Fifth Amendment, a decision that has clear privacy implications for fingerprint-protected devices like newer iPhones and iPads. According to Judge Steven C. Fucci, while a criminal defendant can't be compelled to hand over a passcode to police officers for the purpose of unlocking a cellular device, law enforcement officials can compel a defendant to give up a fingerprint. The Fifth Amendment states that "no person shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself," which protects…

  • Swedish hacker finds 'serious' vulnerability in OS X Yosemite

    31 Oct 2014 | 10:14 am
    A white-hat hacker from Sweden says he’s found a serious security hole in Apple’s Yosemite OS X that could allow an attacker to take control of your computer. Emil Kvarnhammar, a hacker at Swedish security firm Truesec, calls the vulnerability “rootpipe” and has explained how he found it and how you can protect against it. It’s a so-called privilege escalation vulnerability, which means that even without a password an attacker could gain the highest level of access on a machine, known as root access. From there, the attacker has full control of the system. It affects the newest OS X…
  • Court rules cops can demand fingerprints, not passcodes, to unlock smartphones

    31 Oct 2014 | 9:14 am
    If police suspect that you’ve committed a crime, the odds are pretty good that they’ll want to search your smartphone for evidence. Whether they can actually search your phone depends on the security method you’ve picked—if any—to protect the device. Use Touch ID? Turn over those fingerprints. Have a passcode? You’re home-free.A Virginia Circuit Court decided this week that cops can’t make you cough up your smartphone passcode because it violates the 5th Amendment, which bars the state from forcing you to incriminate yourself.

  • Virginia judge: Police can demand a suspect unlock a phone with a fingerprint

    Megan Geuss
    31 Oct 2014 | 11:40 am
    A Virginia Circuit Court judge ruled on Thursday that a person does not need to provide a passcode to unlock their phone for the police. The court also ruled that demanding a suspect to provide a fingerprint to unlock a phone would be constitutional. The ruling calls into question the privacy of some iPhone 5S, 6, and 6 Plus users who have models equipped with TouchID, the fingerprint sensor that allows the user—and ideally only the user—to unlock the phone. It is possible for users to turn TouchID unlocking off and simply use a passcode, and Apple has provided certain extra protections…

    Nerval's Lobster writes Apple design chief Jony Ive has spent the past several weeks talking up how the Apple Watch is an evolution on many of the principles that guided the evolution of timepieces over the past several hundred years. But the need to recharge the device on a nightly basis, now confirmed by Apple CEO Tim Cook, is a throwback to ye olden days, when a lady or gentleman needed to keep winding her or his pocket-watch in order to keep it running. Watch batteries were supposed to bring "winding" to a decisive end, except for that subset of people who insist on carrying around a…
  • Tim Cook: "I'm Proud To Be Gay"

    timothy
    30 Oct 2014 | 10:37 am
    An anonymous reader writes Apple CEO Tim Cook has publicly come out as gay. While he never hid his sexuality from friends, family, and close co-workers, Cook decided it was time to make it publicly known in the hopes that the information will help others who don't feel comfortable to do so. He said, "I don't consider myself an activist, but I realize how much I've benefited from the sacrifice of others. So if hearing that the CEO of Apple is gay can help someone struggling to come to terms with who he or she is, or bring comfort to anyone who feels alone, or inspire people to insist on their…

  • Here's Why Apple Rejected Your iOS App

    27 Oct 2014 | 10:53 am
    Nerval's Lobster writes Everybody knows that Apple runs a tight ship when it comes to approving iOS apps for its App Store, rejecting software because it features porn, allows gambling, installs types of executable code, etc. But Apple also denies apps for some pretty esoteric reasons, many of which are only just coming to light. Want to have an App that uses GPS to automatically control a real-world aircraft or automobile? Sorry, that's not allowed, presumably because Apple doesn't want iOS to serve as a drone controller. (Imagine the liability issues.) Also, apps that report your location…

    By Joel Page FORT KENT Maine (Reuters) - Declaring Ebola fears in the United States "not entirely rational," a judge rejected Maine's bid for a quarantine on a nurse who treated victims of the disease in West Africa but tested negative for it, and instead imposed limited restrictions. Nurse Kaci Hickox's challenge of Maine's 21-day quarantine became a key battleground for the dispute between officials in some U.S. states who have imposed strict quarantines on health workers returning from three Ebola-ravaged West African countries and the federal government, which…

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Justice Department officials probably will not bring civil rights charges against a white Ferguson, Missouri, police officer whose fatal shooting of an unarmed black teenager set off rioting in August, the Washington Post reported on Friday. The newspaper, citing law enforcement officials, said investigators had all but concluded there was not a sufficiently strong case to prove officer Darren Wilson violated the rights of 18-year-old Michael Brown when he killed him in the St. Louis suburb on Aug. 9. ...

  • France Stores Run Afoul of Video Privacy Rules

    Gary Allen
    30 Oct 2014 | 7:15 pm
    A French government privacy agency has warned Apple to adjust the video surveillance systems at four of its retail stores, saying they are too intrusive by constantly watching employees beyond the public retail space. The Commission nationale de l’informatique et des libertés (CNIL) said if the company doesn’t comply, it could be subject to fines. The involved stores are Opéra, Rosney 2, Bordeaux and Parly 2 stores. Every Apple store around the world has a video surveillance system to protect the company’s assets and employees. The systems routinely cover the…

Instead, retail store financials will be reported within the company’s existing geographic segments, ending the 13-year practice of allowing investors and analysts to judge the figures and make quarterly comparisons. Executives didn’t immediately explain why they decided to cloak its retail…

  • Apple Watch Makes Debut at Fashion Store

    In a unusual but understandable twist, the Apple Watch made its retail store debut not in one of Apple’s own stores, but under glass inside a Collette fashion store in Paris on Tuesday. The public event included invited guests from the world of fashion, Apple Sr. VP Design Jony Ive and newly-hired designer Marc Newson. It’s the first time the company has used another retailer to pre-promote a product and, significantly, was Apple’s first entrée into the world of fashion retailing.

  • Book Reveals Genesis of Fifth Avenue Store

    Gary Allen
    29 Sep 2014 | 1:23 am
    The Fifth Avenue Apple store in New York City is arguably the most iconic retail space in the world, and a new book describes how it was the collaborative creation of two great—and sometimes contentious—personalities: George Macklowe representing real estate and Steve Jobs representing technology. The store’s success was nearly immediate, since it attracted 50,000 visitors a week after it opened in 2006, and generated $1 million in daily. Macklowe sparked the idea for an Apple store on the plaza of the General Motors Building on Fifth Avenue, and “pestered” former VP…

    Joe

    Tapping the track pad in order to click has become a very popular way for selecting application or texts when using a Macintosh. Its popularity comes from the convinces factor of not having to press down completely on the trackpad every time. However, tap to click tends to be annoying for new users, who may find themselves selecting texts or applications when not desired. Other than tap to click, the trackpad has many other potential capabilities like secondary click, zooming, rotating, and a multitude of gestures. To find these trackpad customizations locate your System Preferences…

  • YouTube Going Beyond 1080p

    Joe
    10 Oct 2014 | 6:00 am
    For any avid YouTube watchers, 1080p was what made the difference between a good video and a great one. But now YouTube has integrated video quality beyond measure. After 1080p comes 1440p and finally 2160p, also know as 4k, Ultra HD, and UHD. The upgrade to 4k seems great, but is it really? Although, the jump from 1080p to 2160p is noticeable, most people will not be able to experience the true clarity of 4k videos unless you have a retina display monitors or a 4k Display Monitors. Mixed in with the slower downloading speeds and older graphics cards not being able to support it. This brings…

It’s a rhetorical question for sure, the money is almost in the bank, all you have to do is deposit it, right?

  • Tim Cook's Coming Out, A Great Response

    Mark Reschke
    31 Oct 2014 | 7:48 am
    When the world's largest company's CEO writes a column stating he is gay, and does so in a major business publication, Businessweek, one would think it would be major news, yes? While it did make the mainstream outlets, it was not the leading headline, it wasn't a major segment, it wasn't hyped, rather, it was just news. Perhaps the response to Tim Cook's announcement spoke more about society at large than the announcement itself. A t-shirt, popular in the 90's stated "Love Sees No Color" and it was dead on.

It seems there are no shortage of strong opinions for these three topics. Now that OS X Yosemite is in the hands of millions, it seems almost everyone has an opinion about OS X’s evolution towards a more iOS look. Go to any message board or follow anyone of Mac significance on Twitter, and you’ll find the words “love”, “hate”, “awful”, “great” in abundance — with lots of exclamation points.

You don’t have to like Apple or iPhone, but when you see someone using iPhone 6 you are going have one of the following thoughts: “Why is my phone so crappy?” or “I need to get one of those”. Samsung’s reaction was a little different. They came out with a commercial mocking the iPhone the day after it was announced.

    A French government privacy agency has warned Apple to adjust the video surveillance systems at four of its retail stores, saying they are too intrusive by constantly watching employees beyond the public retail space. The Commission nationale de l’informatique et des libertés (CNIL) said if the company doesn’t comply, it could be subject to fines. The involved stores are Opéra, Rosney 2, Bordeaux and Parly 2 stores. Every Apple store around the world has a video surveillance system to protect the company’s assets and employees.

Instead, retail store financials will be reported within the company’s existing geographic segments, ending the 13-year practice of allowing investors and analysts to judge the figures and make quarterly comparisons.

The public event included invited guests from the world of fashion, Apple Sr. VP Design Jony Ive and newly-hired designer Marc Newson. It’s the first time the company has used another retailer to pre-promote a product and, significantly, was Apple’s first entrée into the world of fashion retailing.

    The Fifth Avenue Apple store in New York City is arguably the most iconic retail space in the world, and a new book describes how it was the collaborative creation of two great—and sometimes contentious—personalities: George Macklowe representing real estate and Steve Jobs representing technology. The store’s success was nearly immediate, since it attracted 50,000 visitors a week after it opened in 2006, and generated $1 million in daily. Macklowe sparked the idea for an Apple store on the plaza of the General Motors Building on Fifth Avenue, and “pestered” former VP…

He feels that since now he is the CEO of Apple and the gay community is in the minority, he should come out publicly and write about his sexuality to empower many more. Here’s what he wrote: While I have never denied my sexuality, I haven’t publicly acknowledged it either, until now. So let me be clear: I’m proud to be gay, and I consider being gay among the greatest gifts God has given me. For years, I’ve been open with many people about my sexual orientation. Plenty of…

At the WSJDLive tech conference, when asked about the iPod Classic – Tim Cook mentioned that they had to remove the uber famous device off the shelves because they simply could not get the parts for it from anywhere in the world. We think Apple simply killed the iPod Classic because it wasn’t generating enough sales. Otherwise with so much money in the bank, Apple can easily get anyone from China to supply the parts they need. During its…

  • Customizing Your Mac’s Trackpad

    Joe
    18 Oct 2014 | 6:00 am
    Tapping the track pad in order to click has become a very popular way for selecting application or texts when using a Macintosh. Its popularity comes from the convinces factor of not having to press down completely on the trackpad every time.

    Mac has many keyboard shortcuts that help users save their time to complete various tasks. For example, command+c (Copy) and command+v (Paste), one of the most commonly used pair of shortcuts. However there are many other Shortcuts most users are not aware of. Here’s a few: Command + Control + Option + 8 (For Pranksters)  If you’re already aware of this shortcut, you’ve probably used this to prank your Mac user friends. Through this shortcut, you can invert the colors on your Mac screen. This shortcut was created to help those with visual impairments but it also provides a…
  • YouTube Going Beyond 1080p

    Joe
    10 Oct 2014 | 6:00 am
    For any avid YouTube watchers, 1080p was what made the difference between a good video and a great one. But now YouTube has integrated video quality beyond measure. After 1080p comes 1440p and finally 2160p, also know as 4k, Ultra HD, and UHD. The upgrade to 4k seems great, but is it really? Although, the jump from 1080p to 2160p is noticeable, most people will not be able to experience the true clarity of 4k videos unless you have a retina display monitors or a 4k Display Monitors. Mixed in with the slower downloading speeds and older graphics cards not being able to support it. This brings…
  • For Those of You Who Have Trouble Sleeping

    5 Oct 2014 | 6:00 am
    Having trouble sleeping at night? One problem might be that you are using your computer before you goto bed. Instead of going into the complex science of eye stimulation (which I do not quite understand myself), I will give you the brief over view. On f.lux’s website they explain it to us that the blue lights that your computer emit can keep you up late at night, so the purpose of f.lux was to eliminate these blue lights. They have done this by making your computers screen adapt to the time of the day. For example, on there website they state: “When the sun sets, it makes your…

  • You’ve Built Your App. Here’s How You Market It

    Nick Kolakowski
    28 Oct 2014 | 6:30 am
    It takes blood, sweat, and tears—or at least a whole lot of programming knowledge, late nights, and energy drinks—to build a good mobile app. With all the energy devoted to bringing something new into the world, however, it’s sometimes easy to forget that the world won’t see your creation unless you spend an equal effort in marketing it. Every so often, an app builder gets lucky, and their app goes “viral” (a good candidate for 2014’s most overused term) without the need to spend so much as a penny on ads. But for everybody else, the cost to acquire a “loyal user” (i.e.,…

    After six years, do you think the number of submissions to the App Store has stayed level, climbed, or fallen? As demonstrated by this chart of the App Store’s metrics (hat tip to Pocket Gamer), the number of submissions per day continues to rise, likely driven by a combination of new apps and updates of existing apps. (There was also a surge over the summer as developers prepared for the launch of iOS 8, the latest version of Apple’s mobile operating system.) As of October 2014, developers submitted an average of 1,227 apps per day to Apple, up from a mere 32 per day in mid-2008; Apple…
  • Is Apple’s Swift Worth Your Development Time?

    Don Reisinger
    6 Oct 2014 | 7:35 am
    At the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in June, Apple surprised many developers when it announced Swift, a new programming language for iOS and OS X. For the past several months, more developers have been using Swift side-by-side with Objective-C, Cocoa, and Cocoa Touch to build apps, giving them a chance to see what Apple believes will serve as its future framework for all software produced by third-party developers. The big question on the minds of many in the industry, however, is what makes Swift so special. What will allow it to replace the standard languages already in use for…
  • Building Apps in Swift: Using Storyboards

    David Bolton

    In our previous article on building apps with Apple’s Swift, we demonstrated how to use view controllers and views in code to craft a simple app. Before we begin with this next lesson, using storyboards to build an app in Swift, it’s worth revisiting that first piece. (The code that accompanies the piece is stored on SourceForge as “First Example.zip.”) Remember that view controllers in Swift manage two roles: they controls views on a page or part of a page, as well as navigation between pages. Creating a multi-page app requires at least one view controller per screen. In our first…

In reality, the crush of people attempting to download the software will almost certainly lead to delays, device crashes, angry Tweets and Facebook postings, and furious promises to switch allegiances to a Google Android device.

    No matter what iOS version you are currently using, you have access to at least two different ways of creating to-do lists on your phone. You can use Notes to create a shopping list, or you can use Reminders for elaborate actions that also require geolocation data. However, there are countless other options in the iOS App Store that are far more useful. These applications are able of some very complex operations, and they can be true lifesavers in all kinds of everyday situations. I believe that most of us receive messages and e-mails from our friends, spouses, and co-workers, mostly about…

    While there are numerous iPhone charging cases on the market, there are just a few available ones for larger iOS devices. There are a few reasons for this, where the most important one is added bulk and weight, which is one of the biggest problems for traditional iPad cases as well. It is far more practical to use an external battery pack, recharge your iPad, and continue with your day. However, today’s article will show that there is a charging case for the iPad Mini, even though it is far from the perfect example.

    Our iPhones are offering new ways to re-experience old memories. The easiest way is to open the Camera Roll, where you can find your images and photos. However, most of us are maintaining at least one social media profile, where images can be shared. I have always found iOS to be limited in this way, since there is no option to view images from multiple sources, at least not without opening several separate apps. Luckily, there are apps whose main mission is to jump over this obstacle.   Driftback is an iOS application designed to bring digital frame feature to your iOS device. We have…

As you know, with each new iOS device purchase you will receive Apple’s own 12W USB Power Adapter, so I am sure that you’ve got a few of those somewhere in your house. You can also purchase this charger for $19, which seems like a fair price considering that you’re getting the official piece of equipment that also comes with full warranty and is guaranteed to support your iPhone/iPad model.

Page, as is evident in Google’s seemingly unending push into new markets and technologies outside of search and even the web, came down on the side of doing as many things as possible to make an impact in peoples’ lives, while Jobs was insistent that a focused approach on a single set of problems was better for the company and its…

    A few months ago I made it very clear I had no expectation for there to be an "iWatch" (tentatively named at the time) in 2014. I even pegged 2015 as unlikely. I was partially right – there is no Apple Watch available to consumers in 2014, but there is very much an Apple Watch available only a few months later. The timeline isn't terribly relevant, but they were definitely ahead of where I expected them to be. It was no question that they had one in the works, but Apple did the exact thing that I wasn't sure they'd do – take direct aim at the fashion industry. I love that they did,…

    Touch ID has brought a level of convenience, speed, and security to consumer electronics that has never been seen before. Your fingers are always with you, they're unique, and the fingerprint recognition is incredibly fast. In addition to that, an image of the fingerprint itself is not stored on the device, and what does get stored is kept in an ultra-secure enclave within the phone - never sent over the Internet. Each of these pieces is fundamentally critical to enabling mainstream adoption of two factor authentication. If the scanning were slower or less reliable, even only slightly, that…

It all emanates from a single line in a Wall Street Journal article, “Apple is rebuilding Beats Music and plans to relaunch it next year as part of iTunes, according to a person familiar with the matter.” Hardly a substantive, definitive statement – and a no comment from Apple. A more interesting part of the article talks about the world market. Curiously, it states that in Japan there is “little streaming business to speak of.” And Japan is the second…

Conveniently, payments were processed through your AT&T phone bill. The offering ended today (see AT&T chat thread below). Beats Music no longer offers a subscription through AT&T. The Beats Music website no longer has an option to subscribe through AT&T and it appears the 5 account Family Plan for $14.99 is no longer available either.

    Recently I wanted to try other web browsers on both OSX and iOS. There’s a lot of options out there, from Chrome, Firefox and Opera.Here’s the top browsers that my readers use to visit this site:#1 Chrome #2 Safari #3 FirefoxThe only challenge that I had is syncing my bookmarks from MacBook running Snow Leopard to my iPhone running iOS 7.1.2 and iPad running iOS 8.1. Safari has iCloud bookmark syncing but i can’t use it since i’m running SL, And Chrome (Dev Channel) is already my Browser of choice so I looked for something new.Opera? Nah, Firefox is much better. I…

    Reddit announced today that they acquired the pixel perfect Reddit client app Alien Blue and renaming it to Alien Blue – reddit official client. Along with this acquisition, Jase Morrissey – The App Developer – is joining the Reddit team and will continue developing his beloved app.No major changes for the app itself except for a brand new icon that is similar to the Reddit official AMA app icon that I reviewed before.Due to how the App Store app transfer works, old users need to redownload the app again, as for users who purchased the pro upgrade they need to…

    Forget about today’s new security vulnerability named Poodle and forget about Google’s new Android OS named Lollipop, Apple today did a funnier thing than both of these names.Apple leaked by “mistake” iOS 8.1 iPad user guide that include photos of the upcoming iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3. The photos included in the user guide which were reported first by Mark Gurman from 9To5Mac shows that the both new iPads will include a Touch ID sensor.So incase something bad happened in tomorrow’s Apple live event, you sure won’t miss out on anything, thanks to…

    recode.net: “HP can print not only multiple materials at once, but vary the physical properties of each of those materials as it prints. Our toothbrush handle can now have blue and red stripes. It could be textured in parts to allow a good grip. Some parts might be flexible, some more rigid. Inside, some of the material could conduct electricity, essentially becoming the internal wiring to power the motor. Suddenly, the notion of printing a finished electric toothbrush — and disrupting an industry — seems plausible.” Insanely cool. Congrats to the folks over at HP. Sounds like…

    NBC News: “Virigin Galactic’s SpaceShipTwo rocket plane exploded and crashed during a test flight on Friday, killing one crew member and seriously injuring another, authorities said.The explosion scattered debris across a two-mile swath of the desert floor outside Mojave, California, and came after the plane was released from its WhiteKnightTwo carrier airplane. SpaceShipTwo was testing its rocket engine in flight for the first time in more than nine months.” Terrible news. My thoughts go out to the crew members' families.Permalink

    “It’s related to that. Beats was bought by Apple, and they expressed direct interest in me designing some products with them. I can’t go into details, but I feel like I’m in a unique position where I could be of benefit to them. That does mean some compromises in terms of how much brain power goes toward music and creating. This is very creative work that’s not directly making music, but it’s around music.” Fantastic interview filled with great insights ranging from the Gone Girl soundtrack to Trent's thoughts on the U2 album delivery issue.Can't wait to see what these…

    On September 19th, a new iPhone 6 showed up at my door. After the initial excitement and intense focus on testing ended, the true test began. These are my observations and experiences after six weeks of real-world use.HardwareThe iPhone 6 is a beautiful device.The new rounded design feels amazing in my hands, but is admittedly more slippery than previous iterations that featured hard edges. I am using Apple's leather case, which greatly increases my grip, reduces the likelihood that it will slide out of my hands, and solves the wobble created by the protruding camera lens when laid on a flat…
