Livestreaming on Apple devices isn't just for YouTube Gaming anymore.
Say goodbye to the tiny music makers of 2005.
Update has been in beta testing since late March, when iOS 10.3 was released.
Once you've changed your Apple/iCloud password you may find it keeps disappearing from your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch. Here's how to bring it back for good.
New update is likely to be iOS 10's last hurrah.
Perfect for parties or setting the mood while listening at home, the iBT28 from iHome is a Bluetooth-enabled alarm clock with an adjustable LED cabinet.  Send digital audio wirelessly to iBT28 from your iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch, Android, Blackberry or other Bluetooth-enabled audio device, or play directly via its audio input port. The alarm clock includes two independent alarms allowing you wake to Bluetooth audio, FM radio or buzzer at separate times. The multiple color modes include a glowing sequence, a fast change sequence, a selectable color of your choice, or choose no color at all.
Its specially designed Reson8 speaker chamber provides richer, more powerful sound and enhanced bass response.

The iBT28 averages 4 out of 5 stars from over 145 people on Amazon, where its typical list price of $45.94 has been reduced 23% to $35.56.

Get patching now Apple has distributed a fresh round of security updates to address remote-code execution holes in iOS, macOS, Safari, and the firmware for Apple Watch and AppleTV. Miscreants who exploit these flaws can take over the vulnerable device – all a victim has to do is open a JPEG or PDF file booby-trapped with malicious code, so get patching before you're caught out.

Check for software The fixes come just days before the Cupertino developer of TextEdit is set to hold a special event to introduce a (presumed) refresh of its Mac product line and potentially new iPad tablets. For those running iOS, the 10.1 release includes updates to address 12 CVE-listed security vulnerabilities in the firmware for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. Those flaws include a remote code execution flaw in the handling of JPEG images (CVE-2016-4673), a remote code execution bug in WebKit (CVE-2016-4677), local code execution flaws, and a vulnerability in contacts (CVE-2016-4686) that would let an application pull Address Book details even when access has been revoked. For macOS Sierra (10.12.1), the update brings fixes for 16 CVE-listed vulnerabilities.

Those include the CVE-2016-4673 image-handling bug as well as remote code execution flaws that could be triggered by font files (CVE-2016-4667) and PDF files (CVE-2016-4671).

Also released was a fix for a denial of service error in Nvidia graphics card drivers (CVE-2016-4663) and a bug that exposed the length of user passwords (CVE-2016-4670). Included among the latest fixes for iOS and macOS was CVE-2016-4635, a remote audio eavesdropping vulnerability for FaceTime that Apple had previously attempted to remedy in older versions of iOS and OS X. Apple did not say whether the flaw was exposed in iOS 10.1 and macOS Sierra, or if the fix was an update to an already-installed security measure. For those running the Safari browser on Sierra and older versions of OS X, Apple has produced patches to address a trio of WebKit flaws that can allow web pages or applications to achieve remote code execution (CVE-2016-4666, CVE-2016-4677) and pull location information (CVE-2016-4676). Meanwhile, Apple Watch users are advised to update their arm candy to watchOS 3.1 to get fixes for eight CVE-listed flaws, including two flaws in sandbox profiles (CVE-2016-4664, CVE-2016-4665) that allow third-party applications to view image libraries and sound files without permission. The AppleTV will also get an update for 10 flaws, including the sandbox profiles flaws (CVE-2016-4664, CVE-2016-4665), the WebKit remote code execution bug (CVE-2016-4677), and the CoreGraphics JPEG bug (CVE-2016-4673) patched in other Apple products. ®
Enlarge / The iPhone 6S and 6S Plus and the sixth-generation iPod Touch were all introduced in Q4.Andrew Cunningham reader comments 58 Share this story A non-practicing entity called MobileMedia Ideas LLC won a patent lawsuit against Apple today, with a Delaware federal jury finding that Apple should pay $3 million (£2.3 million) for infringing MobileMedia's patent RE39,231, which relates to ring-silencing features on mobile phones. MobileMedia is an unusual example of the kind of pure patent-licensing entity often derided as a "patent troll." It is majority-owned by MPEG-LA, a patent pool that licenses common digital video technologies like H-264, MPEG-2, and MPEG-4. Minority stakes in MobileMedia are owned by Sony and Nokia, which both contributed the patents owned by the company. MobileMedia also has the same CEO as MPEG-LA, Larry Horn. The report of the verdict comes from legal newswire Law360.

The verdict form wasn't immediately available from PACER, the federal courts database. A $3 million verdict is hardly going to make an impact on Apple, and it doesn't represent a huge win for MobileMedia, which was reportedly seeking $18 million in royalties from the trial.
Still, getting a verdict in its favor does represent some validation of MobileMedia's business model, which was a striking example of technology corporations using the "patent troll" business model as a kind of proxy war. Nokia and Sony were able to use MobileMedia and the licensing talent at MPEG-LA to wage a patent attack on Apple without engaging directly in court. The battle ended up being a long one, as MobileMedia first filed the case in 2010.
It went to trial in 2012, and the jury found that Apple infringed three patents.

After reviewing post-trial motions, the judge knocked out some, but not all, of the infringed patent claims.

Then came an appeal in which a panel of Federal Circuit judges upheld (PDF) some of the lower court's judges and overturned others. In all, after years of back-and-forth, the ring-silencing patent was the one that MobileMedia had left. While Apple didn't win the case against one of the first "corporate trolls," it was able to severely pare down the scale of the attack and show that it's willing to fight a long legal war of attrition to make its point. The battle is likely not over, either. Most high-stakes tech patent cases are appealed to the Federal Circuit these days, and there's no reason to think that won't happen here. MobileMedia didn't immediately respond to a request for comment on its win. A small taste of what happened at trial can be gleaned from a Law360 report covering opening arguments on September 12. MobileMedia's attorney told the jury that the case was about “Sony’s invention from 1994 that is still being used." Apple's lawyer responded that Sony "never said one word to Apple" when the patent was in its hands.
I recently started a new job, which I love. However, since I’m working for a San Francisco startup, of course my work computer is a MacBook Pro. Most people would be very happy about that.

But I’ve been using Linux as my primary desktop platform since, like, 2008, so a Mac is an adjustment for me.

There are worse possibilities -- at least I don’t have to deal with Outlook or Windows.

Also, there are plenty of people to help me with this painful transition. My ripe relationship with Apple I've had Macs in the past. When I worked for another startup, JBoss, I was the sole PowerBook person. At the time, in the dark ages of the early part of this millennium, I was traveling around the world giving presentations. Most of humanity, having freshly crawled out of caves, used those awful video projectors instead of big-screen TVs.

At the time the PowerBook connected to more of those items than Windows did. (You don’t want to know what you had to do for Linux’s X Windows to connect.) Yet far from being one of the contented masses, I always had Apple-specific issues.

The company decided to hold all Java developers hostage for an OS upgrade right when I needed the new JDK most.

The power coupling used to rip out of the motherboard because it was near a modem, which created a weak point in the case. Later Apple moved the weak point to the CD drive, which was under my wrist while typing, so the drive would jam. Then there were the batteries that swelled up and broke the keyboard.

There were screens that had lots of dead pixels and bright spots that annoyed me, not to mention the power cord that kept shorting out, which had to be replaced for $85. Apple’s response each time was that it was somehow my fault.

Eventually, I’d end up buying a new laptop -- before the bad press would make Apple fix the flaw for the more patient people. My annoyance grew.

Finally, the last straw: That infernal “beg for attention” format of the Apple Store and the “pay to not stand around all day when the hardware is borked” AppleCare fee. I went back to Dell and my beloved Linux.

The laptop isn't as shiny, but Dell comes to you when it breaks. Me and my Apple ID Anyhow, I’m back in Mac.

Central to Apple’s surveillance of me is the Apple ID.

This is my identity to FaceTime, Find My Mac, and all of the tools I use to interact with the new center of my computing existence, Apple.

Google used to be my center. Now I must pray to the ghost of Steve Jobs and kiss the feet of his successor, who has blocked me on Twitter. I tried using my email address with my new work computer.
I didn’t remember the password I used back then. No problem, I could use email validation or my birthday.
I tried my birthday because it's faster, but it didn’t work -- odd, but maybe I fat-fingered it or my ex-wife put in her birthday at some point. No matter, I used email verification and changed the password. Apple and various software on my new Mac kept calling me a female name.
I thought that was odd, so I logged in to appleid.apple.com and figured I’d change my birthday. Now it wanted to verify my favorite elementary school teacher’s name and favorite band in high school.
I wouldn’t have picked either of those because, duh, I reference music in my blog too much.
I was also a terrible student, preferring the library to the classroom and asking too many questions.

Apple rejected both. I called Apple support.

There, I talked to J, who was incredibly helpful and did everything he possibly could with the broken system, but I was at the mercy of a certain "A" from Canada. We tried to change the security questions, but those sent a verification code to “A***’s iPod Touch.” After a few other attempts, we determined this wasn’t actually my Apple ID account. As it turns out, I still had an Apple ID from a time before Apple demanded email addresses. Unfortunately, four years ago, when Apple began asking for them, you didn’t need to verify the email address.
So a young lady ("A," as noted above) with the same last name as me and a different first name used my Gmail address as her Apple ID but didn’t validate it. Apple Support and I tried several different ways to let me recover my email address, but finally, I found A’s number on her Apple ID account and texted her.
Someone else answered and promised to ask A to look into this.

This took four hours.

Apple kindly offered me free accessories once we were done. Invalidated credentials Apple’s often lauded security has been evolutionary -- and often a series of “oops, we’ll fix that” moves. Unfortunately, this goes to show you that failing to follow basic security patterns (like, is this really your email address?) allowed another person to inadvertently compromise my security. When Apple “fixed” the problem, it still had an unvalidated credential it had grandfathered in.

This allowed me to compromise A’s security.
In this case, no one was malicious.

But I don’t want to deal with yet another email address. What Apple should have done was to treat everyone’s not-yet-validated Apple ID email addresses as suspect -- and made people validate them or change them to a validated address.

An unvalidated credential is an unvalidated credential. Which brings us to the moral of our story: Validate credentials! (Also: Linux is easier to use than iOS, and Google is my preferred surveillance and security authority.) If a credential proves invalid, don’t simply change the process, invalidate the credential, and force it to be validated before it's used or even associated.

Failing to do this not only compromises the security of the person with the invalid credential but possibly the security of the person it belongs to as well.
