Frank Ocean Is Making “Radio Pop,” at Last

We now know what Frank Ocean sounds like on the radio; what’s more exciting is the idea of what the radio might sound like with Frank Ocean.CreditPHOTOGRAPH BY MICHAEL MAYREN On a frigid night last month, three groups of friends took turns knocking through twangy covers of the usual suspects: The-Dream, Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, the Cardigans. There was no stage, just a d.j. booth and a microphone, and song choice grew paramount. The courteous tried to entertain the mostly empty room, and muted competition grew between our cluster of regulars seated at the bar, a pair of young women in leather pants sitting in an alcove, and a few nondescript strangers at far tables.

ProBeat: Dear Twitter, bring back TweetDeck for Android and iOS

Tech News Keywords: , , , ,

I have never been a fan of Twitter — I still honestly have a love-hate relationship with the service — but TweetDeck was the exception. Having the app on my phone was incredibly powerful. It’s probably the main reason that I grudgingly caved and joined the flock. The Twitter mobile apps have always been horribly unreliable, so the news this week that Twitter is looking at offering a paid version of TweetDeck has piqued my interest. To be clear, Twitter has not said that a premium TweetDeck is definitively coming. And yet TweetDeck would be the perfect comeback story for the company. Twitter acquired TweetDeck in May 2011. Then in March 2013, the company announced plans to shut down TweetDeck …

Our pick DJI Mavic Pro Our top pick combines easy flying, class-leading portability, good battery life, great image quality, three-axis stabilization, and great fail-safe features in a $1,000 package. The best camera is always the one you have with you, and drones are no exception: The DJI Mavic Pro’s extraordinary portability means you’ll bring it to more places, so you’ll get better shots. Because it measures just 3.3 by 3.3 by 7.8 inches and weighs 1.6 pounds when fully folded, you can take it almost anywhere—simply unfold everything, and you’re good to go. We got approximately 19 minutes of flight time in our tests, and its 4-mile operating range extends farther than the eye can see. It comes with a …

Apple has stated that the vulnerabilities pointed out in the latest WikiLeaks data dump from ‘Vault 7’ were fixed many years ago, and that the hacking methods purportedly used by the CIA would not work on today’s devices. After assessing the claims put forth in the Vault 7 documents, Apple has asserted that while the vulnerabilities did exist at one time, they were fixed as early as 2009, and that later iterations of iPhones and Macs could not be exploited using the methods outlined. They also noted that the vulnerabilities and their fixes have long been a matter of public record. ‘Vault 7’ refers to a series of data dumps performed by the website that consist of confidential documents from …

If the CIA wants inside your Mac, it may not matter that you so carefully avoided those infected email attachments or maliciously crafted web sites designed to plant spyware on your machine. Based on new documents in WikiLeaks’ ongoing release of CIA hacking secrets, hackers at Langley could have infected the deepest, most hidden recesses of your laptop. A new installment of leaks from WikiLeaks’ so-called Vault 7 cache of secret CIA documents published Thursday hints at the ultra-stealthy techniques the agency has used to spy on the laptops—and possibly smartphones—of Apple users when it can get physical access to those machines. The documents show how the CIA’s spyware infects corners of a computer’s code that antivirus scanners and even …

Enlarge Christiaan Colen reader comments 9 Share this story In early 2015, architects of Google’s Android mobile operating system introduced a new feature that was intended to curtail the real-time tracking of smartphones as their users traversed retail stores, city streets, and just about anywhere else. A recently published research paper found that the measure remains missing on the vast majority of Android phones and is easily defeated on the relatively small number of devices that do support it. Like all Wi-Fi-enabled devices, smartphones are constantly scanning their surroundings for available access points, and with each probe, they send a MAC—short for media access control—address associated with the handset.

Editors play a vital role in the world of science publishing, checking the methodology of authors and managing the peer-review process; they are the thin red line between fact and fakery. At the same time, being appointed a journal editor is one of the many essential rungs in a scientist’s climb toward credibility and tenure.

A glass screen protector can’t guarantee that you won’t break your iPhone’s screen. But it can prevent the screen from getting scratched, and scratches can affect glass’s structural integrity and make cracks more likely. Glass is more protective than film, and it comes closer to the look and feel of the iPhone’s own display. We found Yootech’s Tempered Glass Screen Protector for iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus to be just as good as TechMatte’s amFilm. Like the amFilm, it comes in a package of two, and everything about it is so similar that we suspect they may be made on the same production line—though when it comes to fitting larger phones, the Yootech offering is only for the 7 …

LinkedIn is launching trending topics, highlighting what’s most popular and relevant to your professional world. Officially called Trending Storylines, it’s an additional feed you can access showing you curated and interest-based content, pulled from your network, publishers, and human editors within LinkedIn. This is not going to replace your existing news feed, but complements it. Available on both mobile and on the web, Trending Storylines will show you what stories are developing, meaning that you can look up stories that your network is talking about or you may have missed. For me, currently my connections are talking about the Google’s Android O, so tapping on that will show me a summary of the issue, likely written by a human editor, …

Samsung has launched its mobile payments service in India. The Korean electronics giant started accepting registrations for early access to Samsung Pay in India earlier this month, and it opened to some users shortly after.

Some mornings—not many, but some—you wake up to a new iPhone. Surprise! This is one of those mornings. And while today’s new iPhone acts just like the old one, it adds a certain special something. It’s red. Yes, red, a bright, brilliant, gleaming red, a shade so bright it makes rose gold blush. The case is read. The buttons are red. The fiddly little nano-SIM tray? It’s red, too. The Apple logo? Not red. Sorry! But it really pops against all the rest of the red. Inside, of course, the new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus have all the same internals as their space grey (and so on) counterparts. But that’s okay! New gadgets don’t have to be functionally …

Apple finally kills the 16GB iPhone

In Business, Mobile Technology by Venture BeatLeave a Comment

Tech News Keywords: , ,

Apple has dragged this out long enough. For a company that prides itself on forcing users into the future by abandoning sub par storage formats (the compact disc, the floppy drive, the optical drive), Apple kept the 16GB iPhone alive for a hell of a long time. The 16GB iPhone was inconvenient in 2015 — let alone 2017, as apps perpetually grow in size, and video taking and watching increasingly eats up more of the time we spend on mobile devices. But Apple, a premium phone maker with a knack for selling phones at premium prices, persisted in hawking the 16GB model. And this forced consumers into the unenviable position of frantically deleting old photos every time they wanted to take a new one. Why, Apple? Why? Apple wiped out the …

Graeme Devine is one of the wizards of gaming, having started at age 14 in the heyday of Atari in the 1970s. He brought us CD-ROM games like The 7th Guest and The 11th Hour. He labored on early Quake games at id Software, and was the games evangelist at Apple as the iPhone was taking off. He created games on his own for a while and then joined Magic Leap, the high-flying augmented reality smartglasses company, in 2013. Devine gave a talk on his vision for “mixed reality” games about a month ago at the DICE Summit in Las Vegas. It may seem like old news, but I’ve finally had a chance to revisit the talk, which was light on …

It was way back in 2007, during the Web 2.0 conference in San Francisco, that Tsyrklevich tried to find a place to park his rental car before his arrival at the event.

Why Apple should make its Pencil work with the iPhone

In Business, Gaming, Government, Mobile Technology by Venture BeatLeave a Comment

Tech News Keywords: , , , ,

Apple has a choice to make. Will it make its Apple Pencil stylus compatible with devices other than its high-end iPad Pro tablets? I think it should. In 2015, when Apple first unveiled the Pencil, people wondered why the stylus wouldn’t work with non-Pro iPads, let alone iPhones.

It’s reasonable to expect Pencil support on the new 10.5-inch iPad Pro. But will Apple make an oh-by-the-way announcement about expanded support for Pencil after revealing the new slab? Unlikely. If anything, Apple could finally bring …

Enlarge / Increasingly, businesses are adding this ol’ thing to their workflow. Luka Kojima St-Laurent / Finger Food reader comments 78 Share this story It’s been roughly two years since Microsoft unveiled its augmented/mixed reality (AR/MR) HoloLens headset and about one year since the first publicly available dev kits went on sale. But ever since launching this impressive piece of tech, Microsoft has instead seemed content with letting Virtual Reality (VR) take the limelight. Take its recent Creators Update presentation in October as an example. Microsoft revealed tons of upcoming 3D functionality to benefit both VR and AR, but the headlines came when the company announced hardware OEMs like HP, Dell, Lenovo, Asus, and Acer would be making VR headsets of …

Attached was a screenshot of his Android homescreen. In the middle was a card showing his meeting the next morning with a prominent Silicon Valley investor. Beneath it were buttons for directions to the meeting and the email thread associated with the calendar event. And still below that were eight apps that the launcher thought would be most relevant to him at that moment. “I absolutely love it!” wrote Mikhailov. “It shows me my upcoming event and associated action items.” By “it” he was referring to Xix One, the Android launcher he and his team …

There was already an Alexa app, a rudimentary utility app that let users fiddle with the settings on their Amazon Echoes. And there have been a handful of third-party paid apps that brought some Alexa voice functionality to the iPhone. Now, though, Alexa will live inside the main iOS Amazon app, …

Amazon puts Alexa inside its main iPhone app

Tech News Keywords: , ,

Starting today and rolling out to all iPhone users next week, you can talk to Amazon’s intelligent assistant Alexa while using the Amazon app. Naturally, the voice assistant is able to shop and track packages, but it can also do most of the things Alexa can do like tell a joke or give weather updates. It also lets people play music, control Internet of Thing (IoT) devices, and grants Amazon app users access to more than 10,000 skills. At launch, Alexa in the Amazon app will not come with access to the Door Lock API. First made available late last month, the Door Lock API allows users to lock (and eventually unlock) doors with smart locks made by companies like Vivint and Kwikset. Changes to settings still …

WhatsApp Hack Shows That Even Encryption Apps Are Vulnerable in a Browser

In Business, Education, Government, Legal, Mobile Technology, Science & Nature, Security by Wired NewsLeave a Comment

Tech News Keywords: , , , ,

When WhatsApp switched on end-to-end encryption for its billion-plus users last year, the move heralded a new era for messaging apps, one where foiling virtually all eavesdropping represents the new security standard. But a pair of new attacks on the web versions of those “secure” messengers shows how just a few lines of insecure code can undermine even the most airtight encryption—particularly when they’re running in your browser. On Wednesday, Israeli security firm Check Point revealed a new technique that the company says could bypass WhatsApp’s end-to-end encryption, by hiding HTML code in a seemingly innocuous image. If a user clicks on it while using the web version of the app, the code runs in the victim’s browser, gaining full …

Here’s the funny thing about reviewing gadgets. A hundred journalists can spend weeks with a device, say a Samsung Galaxy Note 7 or GoPro’s Karma drone, and not experience anything out of the ordinary. The drone gets flown thousands of times, the phone’s battery is charged and emptied over and over. Nothing crazy happens, and you publish your take. The device is released, and a few weeks later, all hell breaks loose. That was the way things went with my first attempt at reviewing the GoPro Karma. I had this piece written, the photography all set, and a publish date in mind. And then Karma units started falling out of the sky, and GoPro recalled the product. Now, five months …

The television business is enjoying a platinum age. I don’t mean the content, although that’s great, too. I’m talking about the hardware. Everywhere you look, another manufacturer places another bet on the technology it insists provides the best picture. With 4K resolution, HDR video, and quantum dots hitting mainstream sets, you don’t lack for options. Right now, LG’s amazing OLED sets are widely considered the sets to beat. No LCD panel can match their contrast, because every pixel on an OLED screen can be individually controlled. Ink-black pixels cozy up alongside retina-searing colors with pin-sharp distinction. But Samsung and Sony claim their high-end LCD panels already beat OLED, especially if HDR video is your thing. Sony uses sophisticated image processing, crazy-bright panels, and a …

These days, a lot of their reunions happen abroad; the passion for flamenco has dimmed somewhat in Spain in recent decades, though it may be gearing up for a resurgence. There are many reasons for this: a struggling economy, reduced government subsidies, the crushing weight of American pop culture. And a kind of image problem: “Young people associate flamenco with the old days, with the dictatorship and a certain kind of politics,” the dancer and choreographer Olga Pericet said, as she prepared for the …

No matter what kind of encryption we use, no matter which secure messaging apps we take care to run, no matter how careful we are to sign up for two-factor authentication, the CIA—and, we have to assume, other hackers—can infiltrate our operating systems, take control of our cameras and microphones, and bend our phones to their will. The same can be said of smart TVs, which could be made to surreptitiously record our living-room conversations, and internet-connected cars, which could potentially be commandeered and even crashed.

Documents released by WikiLeaks allege a CIA surveillance program that targets everyday gadgets ranging from smart TVs to smartphones to cars. Such snooping, WikiLeaks said, could turn some of these devices into recorders of everyday conversations – and could also circumvent data-scrambling encryption on communications apps such as Facebook’s WhatsApp. WikiLeaks is, for now, withholding details on the specific hacks used “until a consensus emerges” on the nature of the CIA’s program and how the methods should be “analyzed, disarmed and published.” But WikiLeaks – a nonprofit that routinely publishes confidential documents, frequently from government sources – claims that …
