Apple’s iCloud security nightmare gets worse as more nude celebrity pics leak

If you thought that the hugely successful iPhone 6 launch would help Apple move past the controversy surrounding nude celerity photos that were stolen from hacked iCloud accounts, think again. TMZ reported on Saturday that a fresh round of stolen celebrity photos popped up on 4Chan and included pictures of Kim Kardashian, Vanessa Hudgens, Hope Solo and Jennifer Lawrence. This marks the second major cache of nude celebrity photos that have hit the Internet following an earlier hack that included pictures of Ariana Grande, Victoria Justice, Jenny McCarthy, Kate Upton, Mary E. Winstead and many others. More →

The iPhone 6 is looking very tempting for many Android users

The iPhone 6 is looking very tempting for many Android users

Apple is very late to the party when it comes to releasing a phone with a display larger than 5 inches, but apparently not too late to generate interest among Android users. Trade-in website Gazelle tells us that “during the week that Apple announced the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, Samsung trade-ins increased with the announcement of new iPhones, jumping more than 3X week-over-week.” What’s more the company found that “one in three Android users” who are trading in old devices “say they’re likely to upgrade to the iPhone 6.” More →

Apple Watch By Fashion Designers

This is what a more fashionable Apple Watch might look like

This is what a more fashionable Apple Watch might look like

We’re at least a few months out from the release of the Apple Watch, but just about everyone has sounded off with their opinions of Apple’s first wearable. Whether its watchmakers or the general public, there seems to have been a wide range of reactions. One of the groups that many of us were most interested to hear from was the fashion industry, if for no other reason than to know whether or not we’d look ridiculous wearing an Apple Watch. The response was divisive, but many designers were impressed with the smartwatch. More →

iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus Sales

Chinese workers make $17 a day building the iPhone 6, but it’ll cost them $4,000 to buy one

Chinese workers make $17 a day building the iPhone 6, but it’ll cost them $4,000 to buy one

There’s no doubt about it, the iPhone 6 launch is the biggest handset launch of the year. Apple had sold well over 4 million iPhone 6 units during preorder availability, but that didn’t stop thousands of buyers from lining up in front of Apple retail stores in the various markets, days ahead of the actual launch. But as many reports have shown, not all of them are doing it to buy an actual iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus for themselves. More →

Irony: PC users first to get full access to a major iOS 8 feature

Apple on Wednesday released iOS 8, its latest major mobile operating system update, but some of the main features in it will only become operational – or fully operational – later in October, following an important update. One of them is iCloud Drive, which Mac users who also own iOS 8 devices are advised avoid enabling until OS X Yosemite is here. But for PC owners who also happen to use iPhones and iPads, iCloud Drive is already available, Ars Technica reports. More →

Uber Vs. Lyft Vs. San Francisco

Mobile apps are absolutely murdering San Francisco’s taxi industry

Mobile apps are absolutely murdering San Francisco’s taxi industry

San Francisco has been the ground zero for mobile apps that help people find car rides, and now the epic battle between Uber and Lyft is burning at its most intense in the Bay Area. The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency has just come out with statistics that demonstrate how rapidly and deeply the taxi industry has been affected: According to the new SFMTA director Kate Toran, the number of average trips per taxicab in San Francisco has plunged to 504 in this past July from 1,424 in March of 2012. This drop came despite the fact that rides from the airport remain a taxi industry monopoly. More →

iPhone 6 Security and Privacy

iPhone 6 still susceptible to law enforcement spying, despite beefed up privacy and security features

iPhone 6 still susceptible to law enforcement spying, despite beefed up privacy and security features

Apple may be focusing on ensuring customers that their personal data stored on iOS and OS X devices is safer and more private than ever, but that doesn’t mean law enforcement and spy agencies won’t be able to access iOS 8 devices anymore. Wired points us to a new blog post published by security researcher Jonathan Zdziarski, who says that regardless of the steps Apple has taken to further protect personal data and regardless of whether the company is willing to help such agencies, they’ll still be able to force their way into an iPhone 6 or any iOS device running Apple’s latest operating system.

Apple Store iPhone 6 Lines

iPhone fans who sleep outside Apple Stores are ridiculous… and I think they’re great

iPhone fans who sleep outside Apple Stores are ridiculous… and I think they’re great

Let’s get this out of the way: There is simply no sane reason to spend days sleeping outside the Apple Store just so you can be among the first people to get the new iPhone. This is especially true because you have the opportunity to both preorder the new device online or to buy it at a number of other retail locations that won’t be as crowded. Nonetheless, while I’m not an iPhone user and I would never sleep outside a store for any smartphone, I really admire iPhone fans’ passion despite the fact that I also think they’re ridiculous.

Tim Cook knows he’s got a hit on his hands with the iPhone 6 and he’s taken some time out of his day to meet and greet iPhone fans who are waiting in line at the Apple retail outlet in Palo Alto, California.

iPhone 6: This might be Apple’s smartest marketing trick for selling even more units

Apple will sell an impressive number of handsets during its iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus launch weekend, including the already announced 4 million-plus preorders placed in just one day, but the company may have a secret marketing trick up its sleeve compared to rivals that should help it sell even more iPhone 6 models in following months.
