iPhone vs. Android and hardware encryption

iPhone vs. Android and hardware encryption

iPhones have supported hardware encryption for over 5 years. Android phones... well, it's complicated.

When Google announced Android Lollipop, one of the most important features for customers in the post-Edward Snowden era was hardware encryption enabled by default. Put simply, on first-boot your personal data would be kept far safer on your personal device. Unfortunately, it looks like default hardware encryption in Lollipop is a nice-to-have, not a must-have, and many Android phone vendors have simply decided to keep it off.

Why I'm betting big on the Apple Watch

Why I'm betting big on the Apple Watch

Why I'm betting big on the Apple Watch

At my core, I've always been a gadget geek. Gadgets are distractions, enhancements, delights: They give you something to occupy your time with, a way to learn someting new, or a building block to make your life better. As a kid, I'd carry around any gadget I could get my hands on — garage door openers, Tamagotchis, compasses, binoculars — as an adult, I've largely replaced that compulsion with an iPhone.

But the iPhone 6 is a solitary gadget: When you're interacting with it, your gaze is averted from the room's events. You become immersed in that 4.7-inch screen. It's like a good book — while immersion can be wonderful and introduce you to new worlds and ideas, it's not the best when hanging out with other people or trying to multitask in the car, for instance.

I want a gadget with the power of an iPhone but the presence of a much smaller, less obtrusive gadget. And I'm hoping that gadget will be the Apple Watch.

Unable to target Apple Pay, criminals unsurprisingly stick to bank fraud, identity theft

Apple Pay is so secure criminals so far have only been able take advantage of it by taking advantage of the banks behind it.

Sadly, identity theft and credit card fraud are nothing new. While Apple Pay does an enormous amount to secure the transaction process itself — merchants are given a one-time number instead of the card number to prevent expose in the case of data breach, for example — securing the banking process against basic social engineering attacks is something else entirely. When reached for comment, Apple told me:

nvAlt: A Mac note taking text editor

nvALT lays somewhere between text editor and note-taking app; it's a free-to-use Mac app for web-heads.

The app is a fork of the open-source app Notational Velocity, an application designed to let you write notes on your computer. The idea is to let nvALT be the receptacle of whatever fragments of information you want to write down so that you can easily find them later.
