01/28, 5:43pm

Updated interface, Copy Items enhancements, fixes, improvements

On Wednesday, Apple updated its Apple Remote Desktop (ARD) server/administrator software to version 3.8, the first major upgrade in well over a year.

BlackBerry CEO writes Feds, seeks mandated cross-platform development

01/22, 9:22am

Chen sees threat to net neutrality from app developers more than carriers

Blackberry CEO John Chen appears to be turning to the US government for help in broadening the app ecosystem for the struggling Canadian handset, as well as railing against a US-centric view of net neutrality and possible Title II regulation at the same time. In a blog post taken in part from a letter the CEO wrote to members of Congress, Chen defines not only what he sees as an ideal path for net neutrality, but also complaining about a "two-tiered wireless broadband ecosystem" where content providers like Apple and Netflix are free to not develop for all wireless platforms.

Review: Thecus N2310 NAS

01/22, 12:03am

Affordable, two-bay setup offers a wealth of features without overwhelming users

For every computer user, there comes a point of critical mass in data storage. When it hits, external hard drives, USB sticks and DVD burning may no longer be feasible for the constant back-and-forth of data transfers that are a part of a daily routine. When it comes to that, what are users left to do? The next jump is to network-attached storage (NAS). But what options are there for computer users that don't know much about setup, but don't want to be stuck with a non-upgradeable solution? Don't worry, because Thecus has an easy-to-use, frustration-free option with the N2310. Find out how it stacks up in our review.

Smartphone or nearby mobile device replaces extra passwords and dongles

According to digital security provider SAASpass, a requirement to possess a separate physical device as part of accessing digital data -- for example a fingerprint reader or separate dongle -- helps prevent nearly all hacking attacks on computers.

Apple sues Ericsson over demands for LTE royalties

01/14, 9:41am

Insists patents are non-essential and not infringed

Apple has filed a lawsuit against Sweden's Ericsson, claiming that the latter is asking for excessive royalties for certain LTE patents, Reuters reports. The iPhone maker says that it hasn't infringed on any of the patents, and hence doesn't owe royalties for them - but the company says, nevertheless, that the patents aren't essential to cellular standards. Further, Apple claims that any royalties should be based on the value of the chip that includes the technology, rather than as a percentage of a device's total cost. If the court should find that the Ericsson patents are, in fact, standards-essential and have been infringed, Apple asks that the court assign a reasonable FRAND royalty rate.

HomeKit requires Apple TV hub for remote Siri commands

01/12, 10:18am

Direct app controls unrestricted

People wanting to control HomeKit-enabled devices remotely through Apple's Siri must have an Apple TV at home to serve as a hub, according to Verge sources, including two launch partners and a person said to be "close to HomeKit's development." Siri controls will always work while an iPhone or iPad is on the same network as a HomeKit device, but until now it wasn't fully clear how remote operation might work. The Apple TV must also be a third-generation model running at least v7.0 firmware or newer. Notably, remote operation without Siri -- using the vendor app for a HomeKit product directly - cuts out the Apple TV requirement.

Make transferring files from Mac to iPhone as easy as you thought it was

Editor's note: welcome to the first installment of Pointers, a new weekly column that offers tips and tricks for getting more out of your Mac or iOS device -- or, in this case, both.

Networking hardware maker Peraso of Toronto, Canada focuses its efforts on designing integrated circuits but doesn't fabricate its own designs, instead outsourcing them to "foundries" -- as such, Peraso refers to itself as a "fabless semiconductor company."

The FCC has been petitioned by Marriott and an association of hotel owners to allow the jamming of Wi-Fi hotspots, usually set up by guests, on their premises for reasons of "managing Wi-Fi networks and security." The petition is possibly in response to when Marriott International and Marriott Hotel Services was fined $600,000 by the FCC for knocking guests off their own Wi-Fi networks (provided by hot spots and tethering to cell phones), forcing them to pay for the hotel's Wi-Fi access.

Bing, Yahoo start 'right to be forgotten' removals, EC issues guidance

This week has been a busy one for Europe's "right to be forgotten" stricture. Not only have Yahoo and Microsoft's Bing launched the mandated efforts for users, but the European Commission has also issued guidance to the search engines on how to handle requests. The guidance is similar to what Google has implemented, but there may be some issues ahead, as the document published by the commission takes issues to search engines warning site operators when a page with information is delisted, potentially stirring up old issues and bringing more attention to the deleted content.
