  • Stealthy Mac malware spies on encrypted browser traffic


    A new malware program that targets macOS users is capable of spying on encrypted browser traffic to steal sensitive information.

    The new program, dubbed OSX/Dok by researchers from Check Point Software Technologies, was distributed via email phishing campaigns to users in Europe.

    One of the rogue emails was crafted to look as if it was sent by a Swiss government agency warning recipients about apparent errors in their tax returns. The malware was attached to the email as a file called Dokument.zip.

    What makes OSX/Dok interesting is that it was digitally signed with a valid Apple developer certificate. These certificates are issued by Apple to members of its developer program and are needed to publish applications in the official Mac App Store.

  • Legal war with Apple hits Qualcomm's revenue projections


    The legal fight between Apple and Qualcomm on licensing modem technology is turning uglier every day.

    Apple has filed lawsuits against Qualcomm in countries like the U.S., U.K., China, and Japan, accusing the chipmaker of using its dominant market position to overcharge licensing fees.

    The iPhone maker itself doesn't pay licensing fees directly to Qualcomm. The fees are paid by partners like Foxconn, which makes the iPhone and iPad for Apple.

    Qualcomm is now accusing Apple of interfering with the licensing payments owed by those partners. Its revenue forecasts for the third quarter are affected, Qualcomm said.

    The chipmaker on Friday revised its revenue projections for the third fiscal quarter. It is projecting revenue to be between $5.3 billion and $6.1 billion. That range runs between a decrease of 12 percent and an increase of 1 percent, compared to the same quarter last year. The forecast removes royalty revenues from Apple's contract manufacturers.

  • Peri Duo review: Bulky iPhone battery case with speakers doesn’t quite go to 11


    Peri Duo ($189.99 MSRP; $150 on Amazon) combines a protective case for iPhone 6/6s with a pair of stereo speaker grilles molded into the back for pumping up the jams without carrying around a separate Bluetooth speaker.

    It’s a novel idea, but as you might imagine, the speakers add weight (5.4 oz.) and over three-quarters of an inch of extra bulk to the device that make it less than ideal as a smartphone case.

  • Apple’s confusing method of device authorization and association


    The iTunes Store was launched 14 years ago today, and has morphed from its initial music-only offering to embrace all forms of digital media. It’s now just another digital purveyor among many, though still the leading seller of digital music in the world.

    While music files were protected with digital rights management (DRM) in the early years, it’s now been eight years since this was removed. But other types of content sold on the iTunes Store still have DRM: movies, TV shows, apps, audiobooks, ebooks, and ringtones. For these types of media with DRM, there are restrictions as to how many devices you can use.

    It gets complicated, though, because there are two types of restrictions. The first is for computers that are authorized to sync and play content from the iTunes Store, and the second is for devices that are allowed to download and play iTunes Store purchases.

  • Why peer-to-peer Apple Pay is a great idea


    Even in 2017, paying for things is still mostly terrible—even more so now that a multitude of options seem to confront us every time we step up to a register: Do I swipe? Insert my card? Enter a PIN? Sign my name?

    When Apple Pay launched in 2014, it came with the promise of reducing much of that complexity. Just tap your phone or Apple Watch to the reader and you’re done. That hasn’t exactly panned out, thanks to both the fragmentation of payment methods and less-than-universal adoption of Apple Pay.

    Still, given the inroads that Apple has made in paying businesses, it’s somewhat surprising that the company hasn’t yet jumped headfirst into person-to-person payments. However, if a report in Recode this week is any indication, Apple may be eyeing just such a move. And the benefits for its users could be tremendous.

  • The best fitness trackers at every price point


    Fitness trackers are some of the best devices you can buy yourself or a loved one—if you think either of you will find activity-tracking useful. There’s no reason to buy a gadget that will just sit in a drawer. But if you’re on the hunt for the best fitness band, there are three things to consider: price, style, and the type of activity you want to track.

    You don’t need to spend hundreds of dollars to get a high-quality fitness tracker, but you might not want to spend more than $100 on one, either. And there’s no point buying a band that doesn’t suit your personal style, because you’ll never wear it. Don’t run or swim? A waterproof running watch is the last thing you need.

  • FCC asks whether to 'keep, modify, or eliminate' net neutrality rules


    A U.S. Federal Communications Commission proposal to scrap the foundation for its own 2015 net neutrality rules nevertheless asks for public comment on whether it should "keep, modify, or eliminate" basic protections.

    FCC Chairman Ajit Pai's proposal, announced Wednesday, would remove the FCC's two-year-old classification of broadband as a broadly regulated, telecom-like service. But the text of the plan, released Thursday, suggests the FCC will consider retaining some rules prohibiting broadband providers from selectively blocking or slowing web-based content and services.

  • Apple considering Venmo-like feature to make you more likely to use Apple Pay


    There are already a zillion ways to send money to people: banks, Venmo, Square Cash, Google, and even social networks like Facebook and Snapchat have gotten in on the act. But Apple is reportedly looking to build a money transfer feature into Apple Pay so iPhone users can send money to each other.

    According to Recode, Apple has been in talks with payment processors and banks about a Venmo-like service for two years, but nothing has happened—yet. Those talks are back on, and we may see an Apple Pay money transfer feature as soon as this year.

  • Apple Music in iOS 11 could put video front and center


    Apple Music is a work in progress, and with iOS 11 Apple plans to revamp its $9.99 per month streaming service once again—this time to make video a more prominent feature.

    According to Bloomberg, the redesign reflects Apple’s big bets on video. Apple’s video plans span from the previously announced (and since delayed) “Carpool Karaoke” to a potential sequel to the classic R. Kelly hip hopera “Trapped in the Closet” to feature-length documentaries—Apple just won exclusive rights to Sean “Diddy” Combs’ documentary Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop: A Bad Boy Story, produced by LiveNation. A show about Dr. Dre has been discussed. Producer Brian Grazer and director J.J. Abrams are brainstorming ideas. About 10 new original series are scheduled to debut on Apple Music this year.

  • Google Trips update reminds us Google has another travel app, and it's actually pretty great


    Google has so many apps these days, it’s easy to forget what they all do. So, if you happened to see an update to the Trips app that you downloaded last year but didn’t use much, you’re probably wondering what’s new. Or maybe you just need a refresher on what it does.

    A smart planner and city guide, Trips is meant to be the one-stop travel companion for all of your tourism needs. It pulls reservation information from Gmail, suggests places to go, and even lets you download everything for offline use. If you're a frequent traveler it's a way better option than Maps, and while the new update isn’t a huge one, it does bring a few features that might make people more apt to use it.

  • PrintLife 4 review: Easy desktop design for all, now with a big splash of color


    Does your band needs to make a flyer to promote an upcoming show? Want to create letterhead for a new business venture with minimal effort. You’ll find plenty of template options from Chronos’ PrintLife 4 desktop design software, which just received a colorful new upgrade.

    Rainbow connection

    At first glance, PrintLife 4 ($50) looks untouched from version 3.0, which I reviewed in late 2015. That upgrade offered a major user interface overhaul along with new visual flourishes like 3D headlines, built-in texture overlays, and photo effects, all of which help produce dazzling results for printing any kind of custom media.

  • PDFpen 9 and PDFpenPro 9 review: PDF-editing apps get solid enhancements over previous versions


    You can’t avoid handling PDF (Portable Document Format) files: every website and program seems to generate them, either as a preferred choice or an option. And, often, you need to make some tweak or change in a PDF or fill it out when it hasn’t been set up by its creator to have preset form elements.

    If you’re working as a design professional, you probably already subscribe to or have access at work to Adobe’s Creative Cloud, which includes Adobe Acrobat pro tools. If not, you likely rely on Apple’s Preview app, which has basic PDF handling, but suffered a series of glitches in Sierra that made it hard to use with PDFs. (Those all seem to be fixed now.)

  • What to expect from Apple's Q2 2017 earnings call on May 2


    Did you forget to mark your calendar for the orgy of charts and numbers that is Apple’s legally mandated quarterly release of its financial results? If so, have no fear–I remembered to mark mine for next Tuesday, May 2, when Apple will release the results in the early afternoon (Cupertino time) and then offer some of its executives up to financial analysts in an hour-long telephone call.

    This is the season where Wall Street tries to intuit where Apple’s stock price will go, and those of us more focused on Apple’s products will scrape for any suggestion about how those products are selling and what might come next.

    It can be easy to joke about these quarterly rituals–I’ve already done it several times, and this is only my third paragraph–but they’re vital opportunities to take a rare glimpse into Apple’s inner workings and the thinking of Apple executives about the company’s business strategies. Yes, it’s a choreographed dance, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t glean understanding from it.

  • How to find out your Uber rating


    Uber used to make it difficult to find out your passenger rating. To find out if you were a 5-star rider, you had to ask a driver (and they would usually tell you, but that’s kind of an awkward conversation) or toggle through some menu options to submit a request to Uber.

    As of this week, finding your rating is simple. Super easy. In fact, you can’t miss it. Uber is putting your stars just beneath your name in the top left of the app.

    Uber says the change is because riders “forget that their driver is also rating them, too, and things like eating in the car, slamming the door, or trying to pile in more people than seatbelts can impact whether it’s a 5-star experience for drivers.” I don’t know anyone who forgets that drivers rate them, too. Some people are on a quest to be 5-star passengers, while others just want to know if their behavior is costing them stars.
