"I've been testing both models for 12 days, and what Apple is saying about the new iPhones is true. They don't look new, but almost everything about them is new."
Notices for the new iPhones have started appearing, and Apple's hardware once again is being bathed in critical acclaim, with just a few cries of discontent. The new capabilities in the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus may appear underwhelming to some observers, but not to Walt Mossberg. "These are things that improve the quality of the phone while generally making a fluid, powerful product even better."

"There are attributes in the payload and the infrastructure that suggest the actor is Chinese, but we would hesitate to claim definitively that this is a Chinese attack, because all that information can be spoofed and proxied."

While iOS 9 isn't a show stopper, it definitely has plenty of useful features that make it a worthwhile upgrade.
Apple on Thursday released iOS 9, the latest version of its mobile operating system. Although more evolutionary than revolutionary, it has some useful additions. The good news is that iOS 9 works on much of Apple's existing hardware. If your device can run iOS 8, it should be able to run iOS 9. However, some of the software's features are available only on the newest iOS devices -- the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, and the iPad Pro.

"Preorders and those first-weekend sales are always the highest, and then things drop off dramatically."
Apple is trumpeting the figures for its iPhone 6s and 6s Plus preorders, saying that it's on track to beat last year's first-weekend iPhone sales record of 10 million units. Last year's models included Apple's first large-screen smartphone, the iPhone 6 Plus. Getting off to a good start is very important for a product, said Patrick Moorhead, principal analyst at Moor Insights and Strategy.

"The greatest area of vulnerability is price relative to what's happening in the tablet market,. It's coming into the market when we're seeing a lot of financial red flags in tablets."
Will size matter? That was the question in many minds on Wednesday, when Apple introduced its new 12.9-inch iPad Pro tablet. "This is the iPad Pro," announced Apple CEO Tim Cook before a cheering throng. "It's the most capable and powerful iPad that we've ever created." Measured diagonally, the new tablet has a 12.9-inch widescreen LED display with a resolution of 51.6 million pixels.

"Putting a processor in the hub, so all the devices aren't required to be connected to the cloud at all times, is an absolutely essential piece of this."
Samsung last week plunged into the Internet of Things for the home market, unveiling a new hub to control connected gadgets, home and sleep monitors, and a smart washing machine. The company made the announcements at IFA 2015. The SmartThings Hub for home devices is built around a powerful processor that enables video monitoring, and it includes a battery backup that lasts up to 10 hours.

"The data tracks with an inside job."
When the giant data breach at infidelity website Ashley Madison made headlines last month, the CEO of the site's owner was quick to claim the caper was an inside job. He had the attacker's profile and work credentials, Avid Life Media's CEO Noel Biderman told ace cybersecurity blogger Brian Krebs. Though not an employee, the individual had accessed the company's technical services.
