Life after Heartbleed: ‘The Internet will never be 100% safe’

By about 1 min ago.

Heartbleed was an abrupt but necessary reminder that when it comes to the Internet, nothing is safe. The massive OpenSSL security hole was discovered earlier this month, and it affected 66% of the entire Internet at the time of its discovery. Most large websites have patched the bug by now and Heartbleed chatter across the Web is inevitably starting to die down. But as one security expert recently pointed out, patching Heartbleed hardly makes the Internet safe again. More →

More signs point to iPhone 6 launch coming earlier than expected

After a recent report from an analyst said that at least one iPhone 6 version will launch in the third quarter of the year, more evidence seems to suggests Apple’s 2014 iPhones could be released earlier than expected. Reports from The China Post and Taipei Times have revealed that Taiwan’s Catcher Technology will be supplying metal casings for the iPhone 6. Morgan Stanley analyst Grace Chen wrote in a research note that Catcher will ship 10.5 million iPhone 6 casings this year, or 15% of the overall iPhone 6 orders. More →

Although Microsoft attempted to eliminate the Start menu altogether in Windows 8, users never stopped clamoring for it, so the company finally caved and began development on a Live Tile upgrade for the feature. The conference ended without any release information, but according to The Verge, sources close to Microsoft say that the Start menu will be added back to Windows 8.1 in an update coming this August.

New data suggests Galaxy S5 stole a surprising amount of business away from Apple

Earlier this week, we shared data from used gadget trade-in site Gazelle that showed iPhone users, for the most part, appeared to be largely uninterested in switching to Samsung’s latest flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S5. But as it turns out, a similar and perhaps more comprehensive study from a different trade-in service paints a very different picture. More →

Video: Apple subtly trolls Samsung’s Galaxy S5 in new iPhone 5s ad

Apple has released a new iPhone 5s TV ad that it shows the various things the iPhone can help with during the day. It also pitches the device as a tool ready to help out with content creation of any sort. During the short 90-second commercial, Apple shows off various apps on the iPhone 5s, including one that can help users measure their heart rates by using the main camera. Without actually taking any hits at Samsung, which just launched the Galaxy S5 with a dedicated heart rate sensor on the back, Apple is subtly suggesting that its latest iPhone model doesn’t need an extra piece of hardware to do what the brand new Galaxy S5 can do.
