> After causing an overnight sensation, the newly disclosed family of Apple Mac OS X malware capable of also infecting iOS devices has been put to rest. Researchers at Palo Alto Networks confirmed this morning that the command and control infrastructure supporting WireLurker has been shut down and Apple has revoked a legitimate digital certificate used to sign WireLurker code and allow it to infect non-jailbroken iOS devices.

That was quick. http://buff.ly/1oEgugB

Unfortunately, nobody knows for certain how long Apple will continue to release security patches or XProtect updates for any given operating system. Although Microsoft publicly announces its support timetables for Windows, and the Ubuntu Linux company…

What's all this about the "wearable tech" that we will have on, and the "smart devices" that will be embedded in our lives as part of the developing Internet of Things?

Yes, computers are evolving — yesterday's desktop boxes have been replaced by our ubiquitous mobile handhelds. So now apparently we are going to be wearing Google Glasses and Apple Watches, as our house automatically unlocks and turns on the lights and opens up a beer when we come home.

For this year's edition of Doug Dixon's Holiday Gadgets revue, we'll explore the developing possibilities of embedded devices — including both personal wearable accessories from glasses and watches to health monitors, and smart devices in the home from appliances to security.

Plus, we'll look at other fun accessories for our mobile lifestyles, including sharing audio and video and photos in the home and on the go, wireless storage, and portable power.

So come along to think about holiday gadgets for your family — or yourself — and look into the future of embedded devices.

Photographer Terry White on why the 27” iMac may be more than enough for the professional photographer.

> I’m sure if we just ran processor and benchmark test that The NEW Mac Pro is the fastest Mac that Apple has ever created. The question you have to ask yourself is, “Do I run benchmark tests or do I use applications on a day to day basis that I’m waiting for tasks to complete?” For me the answer is no. Sure if I spent my days rendering video all day every day, I’d already have the Mac Pro. There would be no question. However, as a photographer I can’t justify the difference in price. Now that the iMac has a Retina 5k display it’s even a more compelling choice for photographers. http://buff.ly/1zg0ylG
Earlier this year in May I did a post called "Photographers: iMac or Mac Pro?"  It was a post that was meant to really ask the question that as a photographer would you benefit from the faster and ...
