Apple faces lawsuits after saying it slows down iPhones

Always trust a big greedy corporation like Apple. When you receive a product free , basically , you are the product and I guess It’s fine. HOWEVER we pay an arm and a leg for these devices from Apple and this is what we get…Nice isn’t it? Apple Inc (AAPL.O) defrauded iPhone users by slowing devices without warning to compensate for poor battery performance, according to eight lawsuits filed in various federal courts in the week since the company opened up about the year-old software change. The tweak may have led iPhone owners to misguided attempts to resolve issues over …

WhatsApp News hidden features

FACEBOOK OPTION (iOS, Android and Windows Phone). You probably already knew that WhatsApp will add a Facebook option in its application. The Facebook option was born in the 2.12.14 iOS version as hidden feature and it was available in the 2.12.15 (iOS version) if you reinstalled it (WhatsApp developers did this error), but nobody knew what it meant. If you never saw this option and you don’t know it, you can see a screenshot here: https://twitter.com/WABetaInfo/status/705869100610928640 As you can read, the Facebook option should improve your Facebook experiences using your WhatsApp data, but chats and number will never shared on …

Apple Mac persistent rootkit malware june 2015

Symantec says a critical vulnerability within some Apple Mac models could allow hackers to inject systems with persistent rootkit malware. The security firm confirmed the existence of the security flaw late on Thursday. The flaw, called the Apple Mac OS X EFI Firmware Security Vulnerability, was originally disclosed last week by security researcher Pedro Vilaca. The problem lies within Mac sleep mode. After Macs awake from this low-power hibernation, a flawed suspend-resume implementation means that some Mac models’ flash protections are left unlocked. In short, cyberattackers could, in theory, reflash the computer’s firmware in this time window and install Extensible …

Upgrade the iMac 2006 to 64bit

Still, the 2006 iMac was uniquely suited for this upgrade project. Not counting the Mac Pro, it was one of the last Macs with a socketed CPU, meaning that processor upgrades were possible if you could dig your way though the tightly-packed design of the system’s innards (Update: As many have pointed out, certain iMac models as late as the current 2013 generation also preserve the socketed CPU). The iMac also utilized a standard SATA connection for the hard drive, allowing for an easy swap without consideration for the proprietary temperature sensors found on newer models. With these items in mind, …

Apple Swift

Many developers always dream of creating iOS application but getting started with objective-C language isn’t easy. But now, thanks to Swift, this problem may be resolved. Many concepts on Swift come from modern language that we have already worked on before. Swift is Very Similar to C# Variables and Constants The first huge thing that Swift provides is type inference so type declaration is not mandatory. The compiler can detect the type by evaluating the assignment of the variable. Microsoft added this feature to .NET 3.0 and it’s practically mainstream. Swift C#, F#   var quantity = 10 var price …

NSA spying: What’s the best phone encryption & IMEI random number generator?

I never understood WHY people say that the IMEI number matters to the telco. I put different SIM cards in my phone all the time, and thereby use either tw mobile companies and I haven’t explicitly registered the cell phone with either company. The only thing the telco cares about is the SIM card. They don’t care what phone you put it in. So, for example, if I borrowed your phone, and put my SIM card in it, then I’d have the same service as if I had that same SIM card in my cell phone. The IMEI number was immaterial …

Inside the building where Apple tortures the iPhone 6

SHARED FROM https://www.theverge.com/2014/9/25/6845611/inside-apples-iphone-6-torture-building A few blocks away from Apple’s bustling campus in Cupertino is a rather nondescript building. Inside is absolutely the last place on earth you’d want to be if you were an iPhone. It’s here where Apple subjects its newest models to the kinds of things they might run into in the real world: drops, pressure, twisting, tapping. Basically all the things that could turn your shiny gadget into a small pile of metal and glass. “We’ve designed the product to be incredibly reliable throughout all your real world use,” Apple’s senior vice president of worldwide marketing Phil …

App security flaw makes your iPhone call without asking

If you’re an iPhone user, you may want to be cautious about opening messages that contain phone numbers in the near future; they may cost you a lot of money. Developer Andrei Neculaesei notes that maliciously coded links in some apps will abuse the “tel” web handler (which covers dialing) to automatically make a phone call the moment you view a message. Potentially, an evildoer could force you to call an expensive toll number before you’ve had a chance to hang up. The exploit isn’t limited to any one app or developer, either. Facebook Messenger, Gmail and Google+ all fall prey to …
