Apple launches $9.99 Apple News Plus with more than 300 magazines

Mar 26, 2019 - 8:28 AM - by Reverend
Apple has just revealed its new Apple News Plus service, which adds magazines to the Apple News app. The emphasis is on curation, high quality, and trust, all of which Apple considers essential for a news and magazine consumption app. There will be over 300 magazines, such as The New Yorker, Esquire, The Atlantic, National Geographic, Men’s Health, and Vogue, and Apple News Plus will be “the only place” where you’ll be able to get all of them at once.

The Wall Street Journal will be the big new name that Apple adds to Apple News Plus from the newspaper business. An internal memo from Dow Jones, obtained by The Verge, notes that the WSJ will provide only “a specially curated collection of general interest news from The Wall Street Journal” to Apple News Plus subscribers. That leaves out the business reporting and analysis that’s at the core of the full subscription for the financial daily. It’s not entirely how full the other subscriptions bundled into the Apple News Plus service will be, whether limited like this or comprehensive, covering the entire magazine or paper issue.

This premium tier of Apple News is designed, in the same vein as subscription services like Netflix and Spotify, to aggregate paid content from a multiplicity of sources while charging the user a single monthly fee.

It would cost you more than $8,000 per year if you were to subscribe to all of the publications in Apple News Plus individually, Apple says, but the News Plus price will be $9.99 per month. Family sharing of the Apple News Plus subscription will be allowed, with each user having their own individual favorites and customizations. The US and Canada are the first two countries to get Apple News Plus, which rolls out today via an update to iOS and Mac devices. The first month will be free. Australia and the UK will follow in the fall of this year, with the rest of Europe to come later.

Stressing its habitual emphasis on... [Read More]

Facebook Stored Up to 600M User Passwords in Plain Text

Mar 22, 2019 - 10:13 AM - by Reverend
It looks as though Facebook is in hot water once again today as it has been revealed up to 600 million Facebook users had their passwords stored in plain text on the social network's internal servers as far back as 2012.

As KrebsonSecurity reports, a Facebook source who asked for anonymity confirmed that between 200 and 600 million users had their passwords stored free of encryption on the company's servers. The data was being collected by a number of applications, leaving them available to view in plain text. The internal servers are accessible by over 20,000 employees, meaning any of them could have searched the list and potentially abused the data.

Facebook is thought to be carrying out an internal investigation to see how this managed to happen. What's of most concern is around 2,000 Facebook engineers are thought to have queried the password data over nine million times.

Scott Renfro, an engineer at Facebook, has confirmed to Krebs that Facebook users will be informed of what happened today, but that, "We've not found any cases so far in our investigations where someone was looking intentionally for passwords, nor have we found signs of misuse of this data." Before that happens, Facebook has been looking to see which, if any of the passwords have, "signs of abuse" because it's only those users that will need to be told to change their password. As it currently stands, no resets are expected to be necessary.

Facebook has known about the plain text passwords since January when a review carried out by security engineers noticed the passwords being logged. A task force was then created to review the situation and an investigation carried out so as to instigate, "long-term infrastructure changes to prevent this going forward."

Intel promises 9th-gen mobile Core processors will arrive 'very, very soon'

Mar 22, 2019 - 10:11 AM - by Reverend
Intel confirmed Wednesday that a mobile version of its 9th-gen H-series Core chips will debut during the second quarter—and probably on the early side of that time window.

Frederik Hamberger, the general manager of premium and gaming notebook segments at Intel, said Wednesday that Intel would be coming out with a new 9th-gen mobile Core part “very, very soon,” accompanied by customer laptops. H-series chips are sold into premium and gaming notebooks, and generally represent the most power-hungry and least power-efficient chips in Intel’s lineup.

Intel has said previously that its 9th-gen mobile Core chips would debut during the second quarter, a relatively small detail in a CES 2019 presentation whose purpose was to introduce its “Ice Lake” architecture and provide a stable roadmap to its troubled 10nm manufacturing node. However, until now Intel hasn’t confirmed the existence of an H-series 9th-gen mobile part, though H parts have appeared on the 7th- and 8th-gen mobile series. If history holds, we should see Intel’s new 9th-gen mobile Core chips by the first week in April.

Intel’s 9th-gen mobile parts are based on the older 14nm Coffee Lake architecture, an Intel spokeswoman confirmed, including the Core i9 variant. If nothing else, the transition to the 9th-gen mobile chips will help put to rest the confusion associated with the 8th-gen Core, which included multiple iterations of Coffee Lake and Kaby Lake chips. There’s been a steady increase of cores across successive Intel Core families, however, from four cores in the 7th-gen mobile H-series parts to six cores in the 8th-gen H-series parts. If the trend continues, the 9th-gen Core mobile chips may contain eight cores and probably 16 threads as well.

Hamberger added that one of the goals with the new 9th-gen mobile products is longer battery life. Gamers may indeed use a gaming notebook to game—which you still can’t do for long on battery power—but... [Read More]

Microsoft Defender is jumping from Windows to Mac

Mar 22, 2019 - 10:06 AM - by Reverend
Just days after launching Windows Defender extensions for Chrome and Firefox, Microsoft is bringing its antivirus software to more platforms, starting with the Mac. Of course, it no longer makes sense to call it Windows Defender, so now it's Microsoft Defender.

Businesses can access an early preview of the Defender ATP for Mac starting today on devices running macOS Mojave, macOS High Sierra, or macOS Sierra. It packs the same preventative protection, post-breach detection and automated investigation and response tools as its Windows counterpart. And like Office for Mac, Defender will tap into Microsoft's AutoUpdate software to ensure it gets the latest features and fixes on time.

With a rise in malware incidents in recent years, macOS is starting to look decidedly less immune to attacks than it once did. With that in mind, it seems Microsoft may be on to something with its Defender cross-platform expansion. It should also, theoretically, make life easier for IT admins that handle both Windows and Mac systems. Alas, there's no word on whether general users will get a consumer version in the future.

In addition, the launch brings with it a new Threat and Vulnerability Management (TVM) feature in preview mode. TVM is designed to alert admins to systems vulnerabilities using a mixture of real-time insights, added context during incident investigations and a built-in remediation process.

Apple Watch may spot heart problem, but more research is needed

Mar 18, 2019 - 8:57 AM - by Reverend
A huge study suggests the Apple Watch can detect a worrisome irregular heartbeat at least sometimes – but experts say more work is needed to tell if using wearable technology to screen for heart problems really helps.

More than 419,000 Apple Watch users signed up for the unusual study, making it the largest ever to explore screening seemingly healthy people for atrial fibrillation, a condition that if untreated eventually can trigger strokes.

Stanford University researchers reported Saturday that the watch didn’t panic flocks of people, warning just half a percent of participants – about 2,100 – that they might have a problem.

But even among those flagged, “it’s not perfect,” cautioned Dr. Richard Kovacs of the American College of Cardiology, who wasn’t involved with the study.

People who received an alert were supposed to consult a study doctor via telemedicine and then wear an EKG patch measuring cardiac activity for the next week to determine the watch’s accuracy. Some skipped the virtual check-up to consult their own doctors; overall, about 57 percent sought medical attention.

Among those who got EKG monitoring through the study, a third had atrial fibrillation, according to preliminary results being presented at an American College of Cardiology conference in New Orleans.

A-fib tends to come and go, and a week of monitoring might have missed some cases, said Stanford lead researcher Dr. Mintu Turakhia. But if the watch detected another irregular heartbeat while someone was wearing the EKG patch, 84 percent of the time it really was a-fib, he said.

“This study we believe provides very encouraging evidence that a device, the Apple Watch, can be used to detect a-fib and to point out to people when additional monitoring or testing may be needed,” said Dr. Lloyd Minor, Stanford’s dean of medicine.

Other cardiac experts said the study, which was... [Read More]
