How iOS 8 and OS X 10.10 need to fix iCloud Keychain

iCloud Keychain lets you generate, store, and manage strong, unique passwords between your iPhone, iPad, and/or Mac. In theory, that's an amazing win for both convenience and security. Unfortunately, it's only in theory. Sadly there are two big problems with iCloud Keychain, one conceptual, one architectural, that make it so that I — and anyone concerned with security — can't use it. Luckily, it's something that can and hopefully will be fixed with iOS 8 and OS X 10.10.

Apple and Google settle with employees over antitrust no-hire case

The giants of Silicon Valley have bowed to their employees and settled an antitrust case brought against them over back-room deals to not hire from each other. The settlement, first reported by Reuters, brings to an end a legal battle that could have cost Apple, Google, Intel, and Adobe billions of dollars and dragged them publicly into court.

Early iPhone engineer shares stories of Safari's move to mobile

What was it like moving Apple's Safari web browser from the Mac to the original iPhone? More interestingly, what was it like doing it under the attention of Steve Jobs? Former Apple engineer Francisco Tolmasky spoke with Brian X. Chen about it as part of the publicity for his new iOS game, Bonsai Slice. There are lots of great anecdotes included, including how Ken Kocienda ended up creating the iPhone keyboard, insight into Don Melton's and Henri Lamiraux's teams, and, of course, Steve Jobs.

Your next pull-to-refresh could pull in an ad too

Your next pull-to-refresh could pull in an ad too

Advertising provider Appsfire has a new ad unit, but this one's not always going to be in your face: if only appears when you pull to refresh. Dubbed "Brichter-San", after the Loren Brichter, creator of the pull-to-refresh gesture, the ad unit is hidden until a user performs the gesture. The ads are native, and right now purely focused on apps, and pull their content all from Appsfire's servers.

Bid for a lunch with Tim Cook, help a good cause

Apple CEO Tim Cook is offering a lunch date on charity auction site CharityBuzz. The current winning bid sits at $48,000, though the auction still has another 19 days to go. The winner and a guest will be able to snag an hour with Cook for lunch. They'll also have to get through security screening, and it may take up to a year to find a hole in Cook's schedule, according to the fine print.

Apple's 7 for 1 stock split: What you need to know!

Apple's 7 for 1 stock split: What you need to know!

Apple's 7 for 1 stock split: What you need to know!

Alongside their Q2 2014 results, Apple announced a 7 for 1 stock split. In other words every share of AAPL will soon become 7 shares of AAPL. Whenever a big company announces a stock split lots of people talk about it as if it’s some kind of big deal. It isn’t really a big deal at all. Public companies like Apple have their shares traded on a stock exchange where average Joe buyers like you and I can buy and sell. Big money managers can do the same. The total number of shares in existence makes up the entire company. I often explain that it’s like cutting a pizza.
