Apple Online Store No Longer Offers Option to Buy iPhone on Two Year AT&T Contract!

Apple has removed the option to purchase a new iPhone on a two year AT&T contract from its online store.
This means customers can no longer buy the device at the subsidized price of $199 or $299. Instead Apple is now selling iPhones on AT&T through the AT&T Next financing program.

What is AT&T Next?
With AT&T Next, you can buy iPhone with $0 upfront and trade up to a new one every 12, 18 or 24 months.

AT&T Next gives you the flexibility to choose a 12-, 18- or 24-month trade-in period and get the latest iPhone sooner. If you’re on (or switch to) an AT&T Mobile Share Value plan, you can even save up to $25 per month on your wireless service when you buy a new iPhone using AT&T Next.

Two-year contracts remain available through Verizon and Sprint.

New Exploit Lets Attackers Control Macs Even After They Are Formatted

Macs older than one year are vulnerable to an exploit that can overwrite a machine's firmware, letting attackers control devices even after they are formatted or restored.

The vulnerability, discovered by OS X Security researcher Pedro Vilaca, target a machine's BIOS after it wakes from sleep. Normally, protection known as FLOCKDN, would prevent any apps write access to the BIOS region, but for some reason, the FLOCKDN protection is inactive after a Mac wakes from sleep. That leaves the operating system open to apps to reflash the BIOS and modify the extensive firmware interface (EFI).

"The bug can be used with a Safari or other remote vector to install an EFI rootkit without physical access," Vilaca said in his blog post. "The only requirement is that a suspended happened in the current session. I haven’t researched but you could probably force the suspend and trigger this, all remotely. That’s pretty epic ownage ;-)."

One installed, the malicious code would be very difficult to detect or delete, as reformatting or reinstalling the OS would do nothing since that does not reflash the BIOS. Unfortunately, there is not much users of vulnerable Macs can do to prevent the exploit until Apple releases a fix.

While Vilaca noted how serious this bug is, he did say that in theory, there is not too much to worry about. The bug is more likely to be applied as a targeted attack versus mass exploitation. Vilaca tested the bug on a MacBook Pro Retina, a MacBook Pro 8.2 and a MacBook Air, all running the latest available EFI firmware from Apple.

All Macs released since mid to late 2014 are not affected by this vulnerability, but Vilaca said he was not sure if Apple silently patched it or fixed it accidentally.

Microsoft has officially announced that Windows 10 will launch on July 29th.

We designed Windows 10 to create a new generation of Windows for the 1.5 billion people using Windows today in 190 countries around the world. With Windows 10, we start delivering on our vision of more personal computing, defined by trust in how we protect and respect your personal information, mobility of the experience across your devices, and natural interactions with your Windows devices, including speech, touch, ink, and holograms. We designed Windows 10 to run our broadest device family ever, including Windows PCs, Windows tablets, Windows phones, Windows for the Internet of Things, Microsoft Surface Hub, Xbox One and Microsoft HoloLens—all working together to empower you to do great things.

Windows 10 brings back the Start menu, offers quick startup and resume, and includes Windows Defender for free anti-malware protection.

Here's a look at some of the highlighted new features...

● Cortana, the world’s first truly personal digital assistant helps you get things done. Cortana learns your preferences to provide relevant recommendations, fast access to information, and important reminders. Interaction is natural and easy via talking or typing. And the Cortana experience works not just on your PC, but can notify and help you on your smartphone too.

● Microsoft Edge, is an all-new browser designed to get things done online in new ways, with built-in commenting on the web – via typing or inking — sharing comments, and a reading view that makes reading web sites much faster and easier. With Cortana integrated, Microsoft Edge offers quick results and content based on your interests and preferences. Fast, streamlined and personal, you can focus on just the content that matters to you and actively engage with the web.

● Office on Windows: In addition to the Office 2016 full featured desktop suite, Windows 10 users will be able to experience new universal Windows applications for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, all available separately. These offer a consistent, touch-first experience across a range of devices to increase you productivity. Designed from the ground up to run on Windows 10, you can easily create and edit Word documents, and deliver PowerPoint presentations while annotating on the fly. With new touch-first controls in Excel you can create or update spreadsheets without a keyboard or mouse. You will also be able to enjoy new versions of OneNote and Outlook, which are included with Windows 10 at no additional cost.

● Xbox Live and the integrated Xbox App bring new game experiences to Windows 10. Xbox on Windows 10 brings the expansive Xbox Live gaming network to both Windows 10 PCs and tablets. Communicate with your friends on Windows 10 PCs and Xbox One – while playing any PC game. You can capture, edit and share your greatest gaming moments with Game DVR, and play new games with friends across devices. You can play games on your PC, streamed directly from your Xbox One console to your Windows 10 tablets or PCs, within your home. Games developed for DirectX 12 in Windows 10 will see improvements in speed, efficiency and graphics capability.

● New Photos, Videos, Music, Maps, People, Mail & Calendar apps have updated designs that look and feel familiar from app to app and device to device. You can start something on one device and continue it on another since your content is stored on and synched through OneDrive.

● Windows Continuum enables today’s best laptops and 2-in-1 devices to elegantly transform from one form factor to the other, enabling smooth transitions of your tablet into a PC, and back. And new Windows phones with Continuum can be connected to a monitor, mouse and physical keyboard to make your phone work like a PC.

● Windows Hello, greets you by name and with a smile, letting you log in without a password and providing instant, more secure access to your Windows 10 devices. With Windows Hello, biometric authentication is easy with your face, iris, or finger, providing instant recognition.

● Windows Store, with easy install and uninstall of trusted applications, supported by the broadest range of global payment methods.

Microsoft says it will continue to update Windows 10 over time with new innovations. These updates will be free for the supported lifetime of your device.

On July 29, you can get Windows 10 for PCs and tablets by taking advantage of the free upgrade offer, or on a new Windows 10 PC from retailers. If you purchase a new Windows 8.1 device between now and then, the Windows 10 upgrade will be available to you and many retail stores will upgrade your new device for you.

The free upgrade offer applies to users on Windows 7 or higher. You can reserve your upgrade now through a simple reservation process. Look for a Windows icon in your system tray at the bottom of your screen, click on the icon, and then complete the reservation process.

Apple has confirmed that tattoos may affect Apple Watch heart rate sensor performance in an updated support document. Early adopters have been noticing issues with the sensor depending on the style or and position of their tattoos.

Here's what Apple has to say:

Permanent or temporary changes to your skin, such as some tattoos, can also impact heart rate sensor performance. The ink, pattern, and saturation of some tattoos can block light from the sensor, making it difficult to get reliable readings.

If you’re not able to get a consistent reading because of any of these factors, you can connect your Apple Watch wirelessly to external heart rate monitors such as Bluetooth chest straps.

Have you been affected by this issue? Let us know in the comments.

Microsoft has announced new SDKs that allow developers to easily bring iOS and Android apps to Windows 10.

Today, we announced four new SDKs, enabling developers to start with an existing code base, integrate with the Universal Windows Platform capabilities, and then distribute their new application through the Windows Store to the one billion Windows 10 devices.

The code bases enabled by these SDKs are:
● Web sites
● .NET and Win32
● Android Java/C++
● iOS Objective C

The company announced that Adobe plans to bring its Photoshop Elements and Premier Elements apps to the Windows Store, using the SDK for Win32 applications and that King has already used the Objective C SDK to bring Candy Crush Saga to Windows Phone.

If bringing iOS apps to Windows Phone is really as easy as Microsoft suggests, it could be a big help to its platform which has struggled to gain developer support.
