Yoink for Mac OS X upgraded to version 3.1

Matthias Gansrigler has updated his drag and drop "helper" Mac app, Yoink, to version 3.1.

Yoink is designed to simplify drag and drop between windows, spaces and (full screen) apps by providing a "shelf" where dragged files can be placed, to free the mouse for other actions like navigating. Version 3.1 sports a less cluttered interface, improved support for some apps (such as Mail and Photos), and reduced CPU usage.

Yoink's window can now be resized or automatically adjusted in height based on the number of files in it. You can now quickly view files in a file-stack in the app by right-clicking onto it. There are also improvements and bug fixes, like better QuickLook Previews, cleaned-up preferences and better localization of filenames and paths.

Yoink is available on the Mac App Store for $4.99. It requires OS X Lion or newer. A free 15-day trial is available on the product website (...

Survey: Apple devices at work are a security threat

PC Advisor (http://tinyurl.com/navms3s) reports that a new survey by Dimensional Research (http://www.dimensionalresearch.com), commissioned by cyber-threat security company, Centrify Corp., has found that user-owned Apple devices are massive security threat to businesses.

Of the 2249 US workers surveyed, 45 percent said they used at least one Apple device for work. Results showed the majority of devices (63 percent) were owned by the user as opposed to the company, and are used to access work email, corporate documents and business applications.

The study also discovered that 59 percent of Macs are used to access confidential company information and 65 percent are used to access regulated customer information. What's more, 51 percent of iPhones in the workplace are used to gain access to business...

The latest iOS apps for Aug. 27

Here are some of the latest apps available at the Apple App Store for the iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and/or Apple Watch.

Jumpin' Labs has released Geronimo for the iPhone and Apple Watch. It's a gesture-based, mobile email app.

It's official; Apple will hold a media event on Sept. 9

It's official. Apple will hold a media event on Wednesday, Sept. 9, 10 am (Pacific), at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco. The media invitation came with the teaser: "Hey Siri, give us a hint."

Apple will almost certainly announce new iPhones. Speculation also calls for the unveiling of the next generation Apple TV and perhaps new iPads.

What's a bit unusual about the event is that it's being held in the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium instead of the Yerba Buena Center or Cupertino's Flint Center. Apparently, Apple is expecting a big presence as the Civic Auditorium seats 7,000 compared to 1,500 for the Yerba Center and 2,400 for the Flint Center.

Ex-TSMC employee found guilty of leaking tech secrets to Samsung

Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. (TSMC), the world’s largest chip foundry, has won a lawsuit against a former employee who leaked secrets including 28-nm process technology to Samsung, reports the EE Times (http://tinyurl.com/osklm3r).

Taiwan’s Supreme Court decided in favor of TSMC against Liang Mong-song, a former senior director of R&D at TSMC's Advanced Modules Technology Division. After leaving TSMC, Liang became Samsung's System LSI division chief technology officer.

The tech leak may have helped Samsung catch up and surpass TSMC in leading-edge 14-nm FinFET chips that foundry customers such as Qualcomm and Apple are designing for next-generation mobile devices, says the EE Times. Samsung has declined to comment on the case.

Judge denies request by 'patent troll' to relaunch...

US Magistrate Judge Paul Grewal has shut down a non-practicing entity, or "patent troll," seeking to relaunch suits against cellphone manufacturers Sony, Amazon, and Apple, among others, over 4G patents, reports MacNN (http://tinyurl.com/qhyh3e3).

Patent aggregation company Acacia and subsidiary Adaptix has been denied further suits over new products launched by the companies using the same technology. The judge says it must be satisfied with existing lawsuit results and patent agreements in place.

Adaptix sued Apple in 2013 for patent infringement. The company claimed the iPhone 5 and iPad mini infringed upon their 4G technology. (By the way, a "patent troll" is a company that licenses patents to win court rulings limiting product sales.)

Tim Cook awarded $58 million of Apple stock

Apple CEO Tim Cook has been awarded company stock with a market value close to US$58 million, according to an SEC filing, as noted by Cult of Mac (http://tinyurl.com/nqmc4bf).

The award came with stipulations that Apple’s TSR performance had to be in the top third of S&P 500 companies. The company now ranks 46th, which meant Cook’s stock options were vested. If Apple had wound up in the middle of the S&P 500, Cook’s award would have been reduced to 50 percent, while a placement in the bottom third would have earned him nothing, notes Cult of Mac.

Cook still has 4.76 million outstanding restricted AAPL stock units, which will vest in 2016 and 2021. An additional 1.68 million will vest in six annual installments beginning 2016.

German court denies uniqueness of Apple's 'swipe to...

The German Federal Court of Justice has canceled Apple's patent for the swipe movement to unlock iPhones and iPads. The court said the patent in question was not a new invention, reports German broadcaster Deutsche Welle (http://tinyurl.com/nzl6hfd).

Judges in the Federal Court of Justice in Karlsruhe said Apple's European patent, which was applied for in 2006 and awarded in 2010, is not new and that a mobile phone from a Swedish company already displayed these characteristics before Apple's devices did.

The Karlsruhe court thus maintained a decision passed by the German patents court, which Apple had pleaded against, declaring the European patent void within Germany. The German Federal Court is the country's highest authority which rules on patents cases.

In May the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit adjusted Samsung’s US$930 million penalty, related to its patent...

Publishers struggle as digital ad budgets grow

As the number of screens and ad impressions continue to proliferate, advertising dollars are moving from traditional to digital environments at a staggering rate.

An important key to capturing share of the growing digital spend comes down to the ability for publishers to leverage real-time data, according to Forrester Consulting (www.forrester.com). The research group found that 65% of publishers report that they used SSP/exchange analytics data for critical operational decisions.

Further, the study found that 67% of publishers – large and small – believe that real-time data is important to their efforts, and 62% find that it leads to an increase in revenue, yet only 27% report receiving data in real-time. As publishers grow, their appetite for data and actionable insights increase too.

The study also found that the majority of larger publishers, with over 500 employees, experience challenges...

Mobile services market to reach $21.4 billion this year

Spending on mobile services will grow 4% to reach US$21.4 billion in 2015, according to Gartner Inc. (www.gartner.com).

Spending on mobile services will be driven by data services, which is expected to grow 15% to reach $6.5 million in 2015, says the research group. A large chunk of this growth will be driven by the increasing use of cellular services on data-centric devices, such as tablets and notebooks, through either embedded cellular modems or USB sticks.

"In India, the rise in spending on data-only connections will be driven by two user scenarios – first, to complement their fixed broadband connectivity, so they can use their larger-screen data-centric devices on the go. In other use cases, data-only connections will be the way for consumers to access broadband connectivity because of a lack of fixed networks," says Neha Gupta, senior research analyst at Gartner.

One in 10 iOS users listens to Apple Music

According to a new research study conducted by MusicWatch (http://www.musicwatchinc.com), a company providing consumer research for the music industry, three quarters (77%) of Apple’s iOS users in the United States are aware of Apple Music, and 11% reported they are currently using Apple Music.

That usage level is similar among consumers who purchase music from iTunes or use iTunes to manage their music collections. Among users of iTunes Radio, Apple’s earlier music streaming service, listening to Apple Music reached 18 percent. The study measured trial, awareness and use of Apple Music across a representative sample of U.S. consumers.

Among people who had tried Apple Music, 48% reported they are not currently using the service. More than one quarter (28 percent) of Spotify Premium customers also use Apple Music, but the draw from popular ad-supported services is more modest: Just 11% of...

Portable computer shipments are expected to be flat...

According to the latest market data findings from ABI Research (www.abiresearch.com), total system shipments for portable computing are predicted to reach 165 million units for full-year 2015, which is essentially flat compared to 2014 levels.

Assuming that the free upgrade promotion to Windows 10 OS offered by Microsoft is successful, much of the Windows installed base are likely to use their current computer hardware for at least a while longer. (The portable notebook PC category consists of four segments: netbooks, laptops, Chromebooks, and ultraportable PCs.)

"Segment growth is occurring in Chromebooks, much in part due to purchases by schools," says Research Director Jeff Orr. "Growth for 2015 is also in ultraportable PCs where thin and light designs are looking to tackle more mobile use cases by reversing the display panel flat like a tablet or having the screen separate entirely."

Worldwide personal and entry-level storage (PELS) shipments declined by -9.7% year over year and -13.8% sequentially, finishing the second quarter of 2015 (2Q15) with 15.1 million units, according to the IDC research group (www.idc.com) Shipment values declined along with unit shipments, down -16.1% from a year ago to $1.2 billion.

"The personal and entry-level storage market has been showing seasonality since 2013, indicating that it has become a mature market and is no longer immune to macro trends," says Jingwen Li, Research Analyst, Storage Systems, IDC. "Competition from cloud offerings and shift of media consumption preferences within mature markets are negatively impacting demand within the personal storage space, making high growth emerging markets more critical than ever."

Strategy Analytics: 2-in-1 tablet sales are taking off

While the overall tablet market contracts in 2015, 2-in-1 detachable tablets have become a bright spot, according to Strategy Analytics (www.strategyanalytics.com).

Traditional PC vendors like Asus, Acer, and HP have found a niche in which they can credibly compete against mobile device heavyweights, as the segment is forecast to grow 91% over the next five years due to lower prices and better designs, according to the research group.

By 2019, 2-in-1 tablet growth will show a five-year compound average growth rate (CAGR) of 57% while slate tablet growth will amount to a 2% five-year CAGR, says Strategy Analytics. The overall tablet market is set to decline 4% in 2015, with modest growth returning in 2016 due to more innovative designs and enabling technology in 2-in-1 and slate tablets alike.

One of the most common behaviors of gaming aficionados over the years has been to sit for hours at a time playing with, or against, fellow gamers across the world, but recent findings from IEEE (www.ieee.org), a professional organization "dedicated to advancing technology for humanity," has dispelled myths of the "traditional" gamer.

IEEE today revealed data on the past and future of gaming, based on input from an interactive timeline. Gamers from around the world were invited to view and participate in the interactive timeline launched on Facebook from June 11 – July 13.

The timeline revealed that younger generations of gamers are actually playing for a shorter period of time. Respondents aged 18-24 years shared that they have only played five to eight hours, at most, in one sitting, while respondents aged 25-34 years indicated that the longest they have played videos games in one sitting was 15+ hours, more...

IDC: Early movers will reap rewards from Ripple...

A new IDC Financial Insights (www.idc.com)study builds on recent IDC analysis of the Bitcoin ecosystem by considering the potential of Ripple, an offshoot of Bitcoin which purports to be an open source, real-time payment settlement infrastructure, and the impact it could have on the financial services industry.

Crucially, Ripple concentrates on providing a payments infrastructure, rather than a new currency, in its attempt to overhaul the international payments landscape.
IDC expects payments through Ripple or similar protocols to grow exponentially in the years ahead. As such protocols supersede Bitcoin, the distinction between cryptocurrencies and new payment protocols will become clearer, and the banking industry will embrace the protocols. With the support of Ripple Labs and other interested parties, Ripple is currently best placed to take this market share, according to IDC.

Gartner forecasts 59% mobile data growth this year

Global mobile data traffic is set to reach 52 million terabytes (TB) in 2015, an increase of 59 percent from 2014, according to Gartner, Inc. (www.gartner.com).

The rapid growth is set to continue through 2018, when mobile data levels are estimated to reach 173 million TB, according to the research group. Gartner analysts advise communication service providers (CSPs) to rethink their data caps to meet consumer needs and win market share.

"Mobile data traffic is soaring worldwide, more than tripling by 2018," says Jessica Ekholm, research director at Gartner. "New, fast mobile data connections (3G and 4G) will grow more slowly, from 3.8 billion in 2015 to 5.1 billion in 2018, as users switch from slower 2G connections and consume more mobile data."

In the third quarter of 2014, Gartner conducted a mobile app survey and asked 1,000 smartphone users in the U.S. and 1,000 in Germany about their mobile app...

"Add to that smart lighting, which can be operated remotely and programed to dim or turn on or off at specific times; thermostats, which can have your living space at the desired temperature when you walk in the door; and entertainment devices, which can stream programming to your display whenever you want to watch it."

How the Windows Phone Could Rise Up and Dominate


Last week marked the 20th anniversary of the launch of Windows 95. What people often forget about Windows 95 is that it not only kicked Apple's butt, but also kicked IBM's -- and it wasn't even a complete product. The thing was an operating system. Most of us can see lining up to buy a complete product, but lining up to buy the software that makes a product complete would be kind of like lining up to get the latest software patch for your car or TV. It's especially hard to imagine now that there's no need to stand in line.

Those caught using more data than they should be on the highest tier, unlimited Simple Choice plan will be warned to stop, before being moved down to the entry-level plan. This move is aimed specifically at smartphone users who deliberately break T-Mo’s terms and conditions using workarounds to conceal their tethering usage.

Video producer hooks up six 4K monitors to Mac Pro...

Video producer Adam Matthews wanted to double the number of 4K monitors hooked up to his Mac Pro, so built an external GPU to do it. He used a Sonnet Thunderbolt chassis with an AMD 7970 GPU – before discovering that the machine could actually drive all six monitors without it.
When Matthews tried connecting the monitors using only the twin graphics cards built into the Mac Pro, just to see what would happen, he found he was still able to get 60Hz on each, suggesting that Apple has been conservative in its claims.
Of course, it’s possible that the strain of pushing video to six monitors at once might shorten the life of the Mac Pro, so his Plan A is probably the best route to go if you want to emulate his setup.
Future MacBook Pros could themselves drive three 4K monitors at 60Hz,...

The report claims that Apple will also continue selling the third-generation Apple TV for $69 as an entry-level device, although the set-top box is not expected to have support for an App Store or Siri. The report adds that Apple's much-rumored streaming TV service will be available "as soon as next year" through a software update for both the third-generation and fourth-generation Apple TV. The web-based TV service is expected to deliver a lightweight package of about 25 channels for between $30 and $40 per month. The new Apple TV is rumored to feature a dual-core A8 processor, an...

In a report corroborating several oft-rumored features of the next-generation Apple TV, including an A8 chip and a native SDK for creating apps, TechCrunch editor-in-chief Matthew Panzarino has revealed that the set-top box will also have a motion sensitive remote control with multi-axis sensors, a touchpad on the top, physical buttons on the bottom and a microphone for Siri. Panzarino claims the redesigned remote control will likely be targeted at casual gamers:A game controller with a microphone, physical buttons, a touchpad and motion sensitive controls would be extremely capable. While Apple is likely going to target the broad casual gaming market, I would not be shocked to see innovative gameplay blossom from that...

Currys and PC World Gearing Up to Sell Apple Watch in UK

MacRumors has learned that British electronics retailer Currys, which co-brands some locations as Currys and PC World, has added the Apple Watch to its internal inventory system as it gears up to begin selling the wrist-worn device. Currys and PC World has a large presence throughout the United Kingdom and Ireland, with a combined 295 superstores and 73 high street stores in both countries. It remains unclear how many of those locations will be carrying the Apple Watch. When searching for the Apple Watch on the Currys website, a banner informs customers that the device is "currently not available at Currys and PC World" and advertises a range of smartwatches from Sony, Motorola, LG, Pebble and others. Apple has been expanding Apple Watch availability beyond Apple Stores over the past few months. Best Buy in the U.S. began selling the Apple...

TA15-240A: Controlling Outbound DNS Access

Original release date: August 28, 2015
Systems Affected
Networked systems
Overview
US-CERT has observed an increase in Domain Name System (DNS) traffic from client systems within internal networks to publically hosted DNS servers. Direct client access to Internet DNS servers, rather than controlled access through enterprise DNS servers, can expose an organization to unnecessary security risks and system inefficiencies. This Alert provides recommendations for improving security related to outbound DNS queries and responses.
Description
Client systems and applications may be configured to send DNS requests to servers other than authorized enterprise DNS caching name servers (also called resolving, forwarding or recursive name servers). This type of configuration poses a security risk and may introduce inefficiencies to an organization.   
Impact
Unless managed by perimeter technical solutions, client systems and... | Read more »

What’s new for business analytics in Excel 2016

Today we unbox Excel 2016’s new and improved business analytics features, so you can take full advantage of each capability as it applies to your unique business needs.

List of all the Swarm Stickers

Yup, more social media weird lists. If you’ve ever wondered what you have to do to get that one sticker on Foursq… er, Swarm, here goes: http://krypted.com/utilities/list-of-all-swarm-sticker/.

A few things I’ve learned about these things:

  • You get stickers if you check-in through third party apps that have API plug-ins to Swarm (such as Untappd).
  • You get stickers if you check-in through the Foursquare app instead of Swarm.
  • The distance limitation for stickers seems to be removed (so if your GPS picks you up a mile from a spot and you are checking in there, you’ll still get a sticker if appropriate).
  • There are no more levels of stickers/badges like there were in Foursquare.
  • You can be mayor again, if you’re into that sort of thing... | Read more »

It provides flexibility at each stage of your analytic journey, with tools that support both quick ad hoc calculations and exploration across large data sets.

Video showcases iOS app built with Xojo

Xojo Inc., the company formerly known as Real Software, has posted a video of an iOS app that was built with Xojo. Xojo is an object-oriented, cross-platform software development tool that enables developers to create software for OS X, Windows, Linux, the web and mobile.

The video showcases all the native controls and gives an overview of Xojo's support for building iOS apps. Building native iOS apps with Xojo is the same as building a web or desktop app as you do today. You can view the video at http://tinyurl.com/nvexpk7 .

A look at SkySafari for iOS, Mac OS X and 2012 DA14

This Friday, Feb. 15, a 180,000-ton asteroid with the thrilling name of "2012 DA14" will fly past the Earth. Don't worry, we're not talking a "Deep Impact" scenario. Which is good, right? And you can follow the asteroid using Apple devices.

The 50-meter space rock will come within 17,200 miles of earth -- that's closer than our orbiting geosynchronous communication satellites. Although we don't have to worry about a collision, the passage of 2012 DA14 is a record close approach to the Earth for an object of this size.

Southern Stars has released update to its SkySafari Plus and Pro apps for iOS, Mac OS X, and Android to let you track 2012 DA14. If you want to track the asteroid you'll want the updated apps. Why? Because the Earth's gravity affects the asteroid's orbit so severely, most desktop planetarium programs -- and all other mobile apps -- will completely fail to predict the asteroid's position correctly, says Southern Stars founder Tim DeBenedictis.
