  • Picture-in-picture, Wireless Audio Sync debut in tvOS 13 beta 2

    Wow I dont remember PiP being announced at WWDC keynote. I do find PiP distracting and un-Apple-like but maybe they've nailed it.

    I use Zwift on my Apple TV. If I could Zwift while having an app play video PIP then it would be a dream come true. Netflix and hill climbing for the win!

    THAT is one bad ass underrated app. So bad ass Apple should highlight it or acquire the developer. Really these apps are what the Apple TV needs to separate themselves from gaming machines or simple streamers.

  • Cellebrite says it can pull data from any iOS device ever made

    Anyone know how Apple goes about figuring out the exploit in a case like this?
    As I understand it they attack the secure element through the USB port.  One assumes Apple has not found the exploit.  It is possible, likely even, that it is in hardware such that by sending signals across the USB wires that violate the USB protocol the hackers are able to induce a hardware malfunction that can then be further exploited to gain access.  

    This assumption is backed up by the change in iOS 12.3 that physically powers off the USB port after the phone has been locked for a time (30 minutes?)

    When dealing with hardware “off” is not always quite as absolute as one might wish, but I believe this puts an enormous crimp in their attack vectors. 

    The most interesting part of this story is that we get to see first hand the cat and mouse game that is just another day at the office for state sponsored  cyber warfare.  
    Given that the company is now claiming that they can penetrate iOS 12.3, there may be a new avenue of attack.

    The could be vague and mean only some of every type of iPhone.

    For example, every model iPhone that hasn't had USB powered off.

  • Folding phone misery continues for Samsung Galaxy Fold, Huawei Mate X

    I've seen one of these folding iWannabes break during a demo haha! The video is out there somewhere.

    The Mate X is ready to go but market conditions are not appropriate. Three months won't change much in key areas of the design but from a marketing perspective, if the market conditions change, a September launch will have far more impact than a June launch.

    More months for testing is a valid justification (especially as there is no real competition at the moment) and avoids them having to mention component bans etc.

    Three months could come in very handy though for testing Ark OS on the device.

    The official Huawei spokesperson has spoken. Thanks for the facts bro.

    Holy shit, the Wall Scum anal-yst market spin drivel is strong with this one!!!
    Perhaps you are unaware of the market conditions I mentioned. There is little or nothing to gain in releasing now.

    No competition.
    Component supply issues.
    Government regulatory issues.
    Potential new OS to test.

    Moving to September (conditions permitting) will pit the X (and the Mate 30 series) against the Note 10 and the iPhone 2019 refresh. That makes far more sense from a marketing perspective as neither Apple nor Samsung are likely to have folding options and Apple almost certainly won't have a 5G option (and 5G marketing will be a fever pitch by Christmas).



    "No competition"



    An SNL skit couldn't make this up....

    Well... it didn't help his persona for carrying a loaded pistol in his car.  Seriously.  Sure, I get that THC/Pot is legal in many states now, but considering this guy's track record for getting himself in trouble with the law he should have learned something by now.

    His track record is irrelevant.

     I see no dilemma here. If we are to have that freedom guaranteed in our Constitution, the Government is simply going to have to find a way to do their business without violating Constitutional Rights. Which is more important to you ?  Personal liberty or giving in to the road to a Police State ? Better ahundred guilty men go free than one innocent man be unconstitutionally stripped of his rights. This is still a "free" country, isn't it?

    I've lived in a police state and we had no rights. Everything was against the law if the police wanted it to be.

  • Big finance sweating Apple Pay intrusion, consolidating payment services

    plstffls said:
    When Apple gets 0,15% of the amount paid, it proves their transactions are not secure at all, because Apple know the amounts transmitted.

    Apple should get a fixed fee per transaction processed, like e.g. 15 cent, whatever the amount of the payment is.





    Apple isn't secure because they know how much they charge? Use a less secure method then? So Apple should get 15 cents when someone buys a TV or car?



    You couldn't make this crap up......
