Huge update to one of my favourite apps.
Out of the four attacking methods outlined by the researchers from FireEye, one in particular – fingerprint sensor spying attack – could remotely steal fingerprints on a large scale. This attack was confirmed on the Galaxy S5 as well as the HTC One Max.
Microsoft has redesigned the app with a fresh interface and added what it’s calling Next Gen Stats, which leverage the data fed from the trackers in every NFL player’s uniform. Next Gen Stats replays look like they were pulled right out of Madden or another football video game, and they display information such as velocity, top speed, and distance traveled for each player on the field. Viewers can see the exact routes that each player took during a play and analyze just like a coach on the field. Microsoft says that the new app supports fantasy football programs from NFL.com, CBS, and Yahoo, and it will let fantasy players track their teams and stats in real time every game day.
This is great and all, but last year the app was so slow that it was irrelevant.
If you’re anything like me and have been having trouble following everything going on in the latest season of True Detective, this guide is for you.
Windows 10 will finally give the great majority of PC users, who still use Windows 7, a familiar but improved upgrade. However, by making that upgrade free, Microsoft may be dampening, not boosting, the market for new PCs, at least in the short run.
I regard Windows 10 as a solid, evolutionary operating system that’s likely to be a good bet for people who like Windows. But don’t upgrade until more of the bugs have been worked out.
I’ve had the chance to use Windows 10 a bit over the past week, and I must say it’s by far the best version since 7.
Months after its original announcement Mac RSS app Reeder 3 has made an appearance in the form of a public beta. Reeder 3, which will be available as a free update for Reeder 2 owners, features an updated interface, including a transparent sidebar, and an overall look more in tune with OS X Yosemite.
In addition the new interface, Reeder 3 features a number of useful updates, like unread and starred counts for your smart folders, private browsing support, and fullscreen support for minimized layout mode. The app has added full support for Instapaper for saving articles to read later, and more features from your favorite RSS services are now supported.
I’ve been using the beta for a few days now and it’s been reliable. One of my all-time favourite Mac apps has gotten even better.
If you’ve ever wondered where certain swear words are used most frequently, this post is for you.
Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook went to BMW’s headquarters last year and senior Apple executives toured the carmaker’s Leipzig factory to learn how it manufactures the i3 electric car, two sources familiar with the talks told Reuters.
The dialogue ended without conclusion because Apple appears to want to explore developing a passenger car on its own, one of the sources said.
Also, BMW is being cautious about sharing its manufacturing know-how because it wants to avoid becoming a mere supplier to a software or internet giant.
During the visit, Apple executives asked BMW board members detailed questions about tooling and production and BMW executives signaled readiness to license parts, one of the sources said.
It would seem BMW doesn’t value secrecy as much as Apple does.
I find it strange Apple is advertising WatchKit apps considering how slow and inconsistent they are.
