    Last month, Ars chronicled a Mac app that brazenly exploited a then unpatched OS X vulnerability so the app could install itself without requiring people to enter system passwords. Now, researchers have found the same highly questionable installer is accessing people's Mac keychain without permission. The adware taking these liberties is distributed by Israel-based Genieo Innovation, a company that's long been known to push adware and other unwanted apps. According to researchers at Malwarebytes, the Genieo installer automatically accesses a list of Safari extensions that, for reasons that…

    Malwarebytes For Mac, or Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for Mac as it is officially known, is a free malware and adware removal tool for Mac. Malwarebytes has been a trusted and popular malware removal tool on PC and Windows for many years and although Malwarebytes for Mac was finally released in July 2015, it’s not actually a new tool. Due to the enormous success of an independent tool called AdwareMedic by Mac security expert Thomas Reed, Malwarebytes astutely spotted the chance to buy AdwareMedic and finally get a foothold in the Mac market. Not only that, but they brought Reed on board…

    Apple’s September 9th event is set to be one of the company’s largest events in history, as is reflected by the expansive size of its San Francisco venue. Besides a pair of new iPhones, the substantially revamped Apple TV set top box, and new bands for the Apple Watch, Apple is currently planning to debut a pair of new iPads at next week’s event: the long-rumored iPad Pro, and a refreshed version of the iPad mini, according to trusted sources… The “iPad Pro” (which is actually the planned name of the device) is currently scheduled to hit retail outlets…

    Along with unveiling the next-generation iPhones, the revamped Apple TV, and new Apple Watch Sport bands at its September 9 event, Apple is also likely planning to introduce the updated iPad mini 4 and the much-anticipated larger-screened iPad Pro, reports 9to5Mac. While the event will see the debut of the 12.9-inch tablet, Apple does not plan to ship it until November, following late October pre-orders. A September introduction for new iPads is not in line with Apple's past iPad updates, which have come in October for several years running, but Apple may be introducing the iPad Pro several…

    We’ve all done it. You buy a shiny new piece of kit at an exorbitant price, and two years later it’s in the back of a drawer collecting dust. The worst offenders tend to be smaller items. We now live in a culture where it’s commonplace to replace your smartphone, tablet, and MP3 player on a near-annual basis. For example, did you know there has been a staggering 25 different iPod models released since they first hit the shelves back in 2001? You could leave you old iPod in the back of the drawer until it becomes “retro” — at which point...Read the full…

That's a bit of a turnaround given that when we picked it up we expected it to be spectacularly pointless. It's only a knob, a round aluminium control that sits on your desk and does things like turn the volume up or down....

    2 Sep 2015 | 12:37 pm
    A pair of new "confirmed" rumors regarding accessories and devices that might be revealed at the September 9 Apple event are based on either previous leaked images or an "echo chamber" of cross-reported stories on the next Apple TV, though they may or may not come to pass. As widely predicted, the first of the reports says that Apple will debut new bands for the Apple Watch. While not unexpected, the report is based on a leaked image of new Sport colors shown by Sir Jonathan Ive at a show in Italy last April....

    Whether you operate a startup on a shoestring budget or have a successful small business, chances are good that you’re always looking for ways to save money, maximize your investments and get your clients, customers and your team excited about what you do. In order to do that, sometimes meeting face to face is necessary—but it can also be cost prohibitive. Between trains, flights and/or the cost of driving a car, plus the actual time you’ll spend traveling (which can be pretty unproductive even when you have the luxury of being able to work on the go), sometimes the benefits of…

  • 'iPhone 6s' Measures Slightly Thicker and Larger Than iPhone 6

    Eric Slivka
    2 Sep 2015 | 1:55 pm
    For months, rumors have indicated the upcoming "iPhone 6s" may be slightly thicker and larger than its predecessor, likely due to several factors including a change in the aluminum being used for the shell, thickening of weak spots in the case to help address concerns over bending, and new support for Force Touch functionality in the display. The size increase is expected to be only a fraction of a millimeter in each dimension, making it virtually unnoticeable to users and allowing most iPhone 6 accessories to continue to work with the iPhone 6s. MacRumors has now received several photos…

Getting the best value for your iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 5s or other current smartphone can help offset a significant portion of your next iPhone purchase, but resale and trade-in prices will drop significantly between now and the launch of new iPhones, so it is best to move fast.

    2 Sep 2015 | 12:03 pm
    “Yech.” With a single dismissive utterance, Steve Jobs buried the stylus. During the iPhone’s introductory keynote, he briefly explained why a pen was the absolute wrong input device for the iPhone–too easy to lose, too clumsy to use–but it was a solitary “yech” that changed everyone’s mind about the stylus. Until that offhand exclamation, people actually liked using styluses, and the idea of an Apple phone shipping with one wasn’t an outlandish notion. But to hear Steve’s expression of disgust made it seem like a stylus was about as useful as a zip drive. Years later he…

No, even earlier than that I was fascinated with typewriters, the manual one I got as a kid and the IBM Selectric with the spinning typeball in my father’s office. The point is, I’ve always enjoyed technology. You name it: it’s a joy to solve a problem with software or scripting or a web service or a cleverly applied bit of hardware.

The easiest way to watch is just watching the embedded player right here on TouchArcade. In the interest of being polite, we mute the audio. If you're somewhere you can listen, be sure to turn it back up- the controls for that are in the lower right corner of the video stream.

I'm feeling that even more strongly now, as already developer Josh Slade has uploaded another awesome preview video of the game. This one focuses less on the action portion of Prevail and more on mining resources, processing them, and then going shopping for some goodies. Ugh, Prevail looks so darn interesting. I want it now!

    I don’t want to waste your time here, so I’m just going to come right out with it: Gathering Sky [$2.99 (HD)] by A Stranger Gravity is a game that’s probably not going to be everyone’s cup of tea. In fact, it’s barely even a “game” at all. There were long stretches during my playthrough that I didn’t even touch the screen or have any input whatsoever. It’s one of those games that’s more of an experience, maaaan. But stick with me here, ‘cause it’s actually a really good experience.

  • 'Tiny Empire' Review - Waging War With Cannons

    Eric Ford
    2 Sep 2015 | 3:00 pm
    At first glance, Tiny Empire [$2.99] by Mother Gaia Studios acts suspiciously like another giant game franchise that resides within the physics-based launching genre. There’s projectile aiming, enemies you want to destroy, and a few twists on the ammunition being tossed. However, beyond the gameplay similarities is decent example of a title taking a genre that has been dominated by a huge developer and creating just enough change that it can stand on its own. As mentioned above, Tiny Empire's core mechanics are heavily inspired by the physics-based launching games pioneered on iOS by the…

    On Tuesday, Ars chronicled an OS X technique that's being actively used by an underhanded piece of adware to access people's Mac keychain without permission. Now there's evidence the underlying weakness has been exploited for four years. As documented by Twitter user @noarfromspace, the keychain-penetrating technique was carried out in 2011 by a piece of malware known as DevilRobber. The then new threat caught the attention of security researchers because it commandeered a Mac's graphics card and CPU to perform the mathematical calculations necessary to mine Bitcoins, something that was novel…

    31 Aug 2015 | 8:51 am
    Google has announced that iOS is an officially supported operating system for Android Wear. Users with an iPhone 5, 5C, 5S, 6, or 6 Plus running iOS 8.2 and above will be able to pair with "newer" Android Wear devices, download the app, and be off and running. Until now, smartwatch platforms from Google and Apple have been ecosystem lock-in devices. If you have an Android phone, you have to get an Android Wear watch, and if you have an iPhone you have to get an Apple Watch. By supporting both OSes, Android Wear will have a much larger potential user base to try and sell a watch to.

    31 Aug 2015 | 7:43 am
    An iPhone refresh at Apple's September 9 event is all but certain, but the more interesting news might actually be about the Apple TV. The company is said to be revamping the set-top box's hardware for the first time since March of 2012, and historically reliable sources say that the update will also include a redesigned remote control with touch capabilities and Siri support, along with a new app store and SDK. Those features come at a cost, though. A report from 9to5Mac says that the new Apple TV could cost somewhere between $149 and $199, a substantial increase from the $99 that the…

  • A Beginner’s Guide to App Store Pricing Tiers

    Graham Spencer
    1 Sep 2015 | 7:00 am
    It might be common knowledge to developers, but some readers might not be aware that Apple only permits developers to sell apps at certain price points. For example, customers in the US App Store will see apps costing $0.99, $1.99, and $2.99 but they won't find any apps costing $5.20 or $2.75. For various reasons, which we'll cover, Apple permits developers to choose from 94 price tiers, which range from US$0.99 to US$999.99. Developers pick one price tier, which applies to every country that their app is distributed in. In this story we'll go into the details of the App Store price tiers,…

    Since its debut on the App Store last year, Workflow has established a new paradigm for automation on iOS. By deeply integrating with iOS apps, device hardware and sensors, an array of web services, and advanced actions for scripting and control flows, Workflow has shown how automation – for many an area of computing that evokes thoughts of old desktop apps and arcane scripting languages – can be reimagined for the iPhone and iPad while being fun and powerful. Workflow is one of the reasons behind my decision to go all-in with the iPad as my primary computer, and the Apple Design…

  • Is Apple’s iPhone Product Line Too Varied?

    Over the years, Apple has steadily increased the size of its product line. With several of the company’s devices running the same software and fulfilling virtually the same function, is it time for Apple to reevaluate its product line? Specifically, is Apple’s iPhone product line too varied? Since its founding, Apple has always been synonymous with simplicity, but its current iPhone product line is anything but simple. Over the years, Apple has been steadily adding more and more models to its iPhone line, and as happy as that’s making its customers (and the stockholders), the constant…

    Mark Wilson writes: Two security researchers have discovered a serious vulnerability in OS X that could allow an attacker to steal passwords and other credentials in an almost invisible way. Antoine Vincent Jebara and Raja Rahbani — two of the team behind the myki identity management security software — found that a series of terminal commands can be used to extract a range of stored credentials. What is particularly worrying about the vulnerability is that it requires virtually no interaction from the victim; simulated mouse clicks can be used to click on hidden buttons to grant…

    31 Aug 2015 | 6:40 am
    An anonymous reader writes: Researchers from Palo Alto Networks and WeipTech have unearthed a scheme that resulted in the largest known Apple account theft caused by malware. All in all, some 225,000 valid Apple accounts have been compromised. The theft is executed via variants of the KeyRaider iOS malware, which targets jailbroken iOS devices. Most of the victims are Chinese — the malware is distributed through third-party Cydia repositories in China — but users in other countries have also been affected (European countries, the U.S., Australia, South Korea, and so on).

  • A FreeBSD "Spork" With Touches of NeXT and OS X: NeXTBSD

    30 Aug 2015 | 2:22 am
    There are a lot of open source operating systems out there; being open source, they lend themselves to forks, clones or near clones, and friendly offshoots. There are even services to let you customize, download, and (if you choose) bulk-install your own OS based on common components. Phoronix notes a new project called NeXTBSD that might turn more heads than most new open source OSes, in part because of the developers behind it, and in part because of the positive thoughts many people have toward the aesthetics of NeXTSTEP and Mac OS X. (And while it might be a fork of FreeBSD, the…

  • New Comcast innovation: A $30 charge to eliminate your data cap

    Mike Flaminio
    1 Sep 2015 | 5:31 pm
    Jon Brodkin: If you're wondering how Comcast settled on a 300GB data cap, a company VP recently said that it's a business decision rather than one driven by technical necessity. One of the most hated companies earning its stripes. This reminds me of when iMessage threatened the mobile carriers text plan cash cows. They just jacked up the prices and introduced unlimited plans. As people cut back on cable packages and opt for streaming, Comcast clearly seems to be positioning itself to win either way.

Malicious code surreptitiously included with Cydia apps is creating problems for people in China and at least 17 other countries, including France, Russia, Japan, and the UK.

The report also claims Apple will retain the current generation Apple TV to continue offering content streaming and may also support the rumored cable TV offering in store for 2016. Biggest difference will be it won't run apps or Siri and will continue to use the same remote. If I had to guess, a big part of the price hike may…

    Apple Music has now been out for a couple of months, and it’s still the cause of much frustration for some people. There seems to be a deep misunderstanding of some of the core concepts, as well as a feeling that Apple is perhaps expecting too much of iTunes, by shoehorning too many features into this very old application. In this show I’m going to try and dispel some of the FUD - that’s Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt, that seems to be prevalent, and try and explain in detail what Apple Music is, and how the various components work together.

Nest started with the Nest Learning Thermostat, which made HVAC programming and remote management easy — really for the first time — then released the Nest Protect smoke and carbon monoxide alarm, and after acquiring Dropcam, the Nest Cam home security camera. Now owned by Google, Nest has closely followed Apple’s strategy of refined iteration upon past designs, releasing…

Despite new capabilities and the presence of 4K video recording in the new iPhones, sources say that the new iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus will retain the same storage tiers as the current iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus: 16GB, 64GB, and 128GB. On-contract pricing will also be the same as the 2014 models: $199, $299, and $399 for the iPhone 6S, versus $299, $399, and $499 for the iPhone 6S Plus. We…

  • Does Your Mac Really Need A Firewall?

    Dig through your Mac’s settings and you’ll find a firewall, turned off by default. Isn’t that insecure? Why would Apple be so irresponsible? Don’t panic: this doesn’t mean your machine isn’t secure. The firewall in question lets you block incoming traffic to particular programs, meaning it’s only useful if there are programs on your computer that you’d like to restrict in terms of incoming information. If that’s not the case, and if you use the Internet primarily behind a secure router, you probably don’t need to enable a firewall…

    Working at the Service Check-in Counter, I often have customers asking me how to get out of Zoom and/or Voiceover on their iOS devices. While most people have Zoom and Voiceover disabled, it still shows up now and again. If you have used Zoom, the image to the right may seem familiar. If this happens, you can try to enter your passcode and navigate to Settings to turn off Zoom but this can be difficult. An easier way out is a simple 3 finger tap twice which will Zoom you back out. If you have seen the image above, then you also must have experienced Voiceover. Instead of using your finger to…

    Keyboard shortcuts are handy ways of using simple keyboard commands to handle tasks that might require multiple clicks of your mouse or trackpad. Sometimes using these shortcuts can save time and make your work flow easier. As an example, from time to time I grab screen shots to include in Kibbles or to send to customers. I can launch the Grab app to capture these screen shots but I can also hit ⇧⌘3 (shift/command/3) to capture the screen. Easier yet, if I frequently use that key combination I can customize the keys I use or make one of my function keys do the screen grab. Here's how you…

  • Malwarebytes For Mac Review

    MacHow2
    22 Aug 2015 | 8:59 am
    Malwarebytes For Mac, or Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for Mac as it is officially known, is a free malware and adware removal tool for Mac. Malwarebytes has been a trusted and popular malware removal tool on PC and Windows for many years and although Malwarebytes for Mac was finally released in July 2015, it’s not actually a new tool. Due to the enormous success of an independent tool called AdwareMedic by Mac security expert Thomas Reed, Malwarebytes astutely spotted the chance to buy AdwareMedic and finally get a foothold in the Mac market. Not only that, but they brought Reed on board…

  • Lattice For Mac Review

    19 Aug 2015 | 4:42 am
    Until recently, color management and LUT translation has required expensive post production software but Lattice for Mac has changed all of that. Lattice is a powerful video utility that allows you to manipulate, transform and convert 3D and 1D LUTs. The problem with LUTs is that it remains a bit of a mystery how they work so Lattice demystifies the process with surprising ease. It’s almost impossible to know what’s behind .cube files unless you use a tool such as Lattice to deconstruct LUTs which allow you to manipulate them mathematically. The power Lattice gives you in terms of…

  • Hulu unlocks the albatross ↦

    Jason Snell
    2 Sep 2015 | 3:12 pm
    Hulu has been a streaming-video pioneer, yet when its name comes up in conversation it seems to always be negative. That’s what you get when your paid video streaming service is full of ads when all of your paid video streaming service competitors are free of ads. So as of today Hulu’s offering commercial-free subscriptions for $12/month. In other words, Hulu now lets you pay a 50 percent premium on the normal $8/month subscription to watch it without ads. While Hulu is moving away from being “the video service packed full of ads,” it’s also more expensive than…

    2 Sep 2015 | 2:16 pm
    This week in my More Color column at Macworld, I explain why I sometimes foolishly seek high-tech solutions to simple problems: I can’t remember when I first found myself attracted to technological toys. Was it the first video game I saw, or the first computer keyboard I typed on? No, even earlier than that I was fascinated with typewriters, the manual one I got as a kid and the IBM Selectric with the spinning typeball in my father’s office. The point is, I’ve always enjoyed technology. You name it: it’s a joy to solve a problem with software or scripting or a web…

Instead of searching the catalogs of multiple video services one at a time for a particular movie, you’ll now be able to search all — or most of them — at once and then choose the service on which…
