How to steal paid iOS apps, iTunes movies and music right now… and why you shouldn’t do it

A few days ago, Apple has made a significant change to its iTunes stores in European Union countries, introducing a new 14-day no-questions-asked refund period in all these EU markets. That effectively means EU customers buying paid content from the App Store, can ask for their money back in case they end up hating an iOS or iPhone app. However, the new refund policy can apparently be abused because users can both ask for their money back and still keep the app. More →

Sony Pictures released The Interview last week, after initially caving to threats received from the hackers who hit the studio in one of the biggest data heists to date and canceling the planned Christmas Day launch. The company soon changed its mind, offering interested movie fans the chance of seeing it in select theaters, or streaming it online from either Microsoft or Google. Interestingly, Apple was not willing to make the movie available via iTunes at first, for reasons unknown, but now the controversial comedy can be purchased or rented on iTunes, Re/code reports.

Apple’s two-factor authentication on iTunes can easily turn into your worst nightmare

Apple this year has worked to improve the privacy and security features that protect iOS, OS X and iCloud users, particularly following the embarrassing nude celebrity hacks from September, which were possible thanks to phishing attacks that managed to steal the Apple IDs and passwords of the victims. Apple insisted at the time that users enable its two-factor authentication iTunes security feature to better protect their accounts, but The Next Web reveals that the feature is so secure that it can turn into your worst nightmare in an instant.

Apple is hardly paying any iTunes taxes in Europe, report alleges

Apple has been widely criticized for its tax practices in Europe, where it managed to avoid paying big taxes thanks to the special deals it has in place with Ireland and Luxembourg. A new report from The Australian Financial Review, which cites an investigation led by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, says that Apple’s iTunes earnings in the region go mostly untaxed as well.

The funniest thing you’ll see today: Conan thinks Apple could do more to help U2 haters

Inexplicably, the biggest tech-related controversy of the month has without a doubt been the release of U2’s new album. When Tim Cook and Bono announced that Songs of Innocence would be injected into everyone’s iTunes account without their permission, the Internet proceeded to lose its collective mind. There were op-eds, angry tweets and enough vitriol to force Apple to provide a simple solution for removing the album that it paid $100 million to give out for free. But what if Apple didn’t go far enough? More →
