A closer look at the NSO Group, the organization behind the most advanced iPhone spyware ever released

By about 9 hours ago.

Late last week, security researchers uncovered what may very well be the most advanced mobile hacking tool we’ve seen to date.

This stagnant technology is what’s holding Siri back

Over the past few years, Siri’s functionality and reliability has improved by leaps and bounds. Not only is Siri’s feature-set more expansive than ever, but it operates much more quickly and does a much better job at understanding and processing language. To this point, Medium last week published a fascinating and detailed profile on how Apple’s advancements in the field of AI and machine learning have helped take Siri’s performance to the next level.

In fact, Siri Senior Director Alex Acero boasted that advancements in Siri’s underlying technology has cut down the error rate “by a factor of two in all the languages” and “more than a factor of two in many cases.”

Barbra Streisand tells Jimmy Fallon about her beef with Siri

We heard a few days ago that Barbra Streisand decided to pick up the phone and call none other than Tim Cook to demand a certain update in Siri. She wasn’t happy with the way Siri pronounces her name, and the Apple CEO obliged, letting her know that it’ll all be fixed come September 30th. Naturally, all tech blogs speculated that we’re going to get a new version of iOS on that date, likely the first iOS 10 release, though it would be a little late compared to Apple’s usual iOS rollout. But this isn’t about that at all. No, we’re just going to take a look at Streisand explaining the entire thing to Jimmy Fallon. More →

How to not get scammed on Amazon

How to not get scammed on Amazon

Amazon is the biggest online retailer in the US, but it’s also not without problems. One of the ways Amazon became so big was by opening up its distribution network to third-party retailers, who use Amazon’s warehouses and website to sell their own products.

Buying from these retailers means you’re not buying from Amazon proper, and that means you can be burned.

Spotify Vs Apple Music

Report: Spotify punishes artists who give exclusives to Apple Music

Report: Spotify punishes artists who give exclusives to Apple Music

With Apple working overtime in an effort to attract new subscribers to Apple Music, and steal away users from Spotify in the process, the company has doubled down on artist exclusives as a marketing strategy. Over the past few months, Apple has successfully managed to convince a number of big name artists like Drake and Frank Ocean to release new albums exclusively on Apple Music.

Predictably, Spotify isn’t a fan of Apple’s business strategy and has reportedly begun retaliating against artists who opt to release exclusives on Apple Music. According to a recent report from Bloomberg, artists who get into bed with Apple may discover that their content becomes harder for users to find on Spotify.
