'BADASS' surveillance program let British, Canadian governments spy on smartphones

More information about government surveillance has come to light, and it seems that the British and Canadian governments apparently used special software filters to acquire sensitive smartphone user data from the servers of a number of advertising and analytics companies. The program, called BADASS, gathered unencrypted data sent to the companies from iPhones and other devices. The data collected by these companies can give whoever is looking at it a lot of information about individual users.

Apple growing, Samsung slowing, and doubling down on the 'great product' strategy

Apple growing, Samsung slowing, and doubling down on the 'great product' strategy

Apple will report its first-quarter 2015 earnings later today, and analysts are expecting a blockbuster. That's in stark contrast to rival Samsung, whose profits have been stalling on both the premium and budget ends of market. What makes this remarkable is that Apple hasn't changed their product strategy to do it — they've doubled down on it.

T-Mobile taps Kim Kardashian to lead its Super Bowl commercial

Breaking from its new modus operandi of "uncarrier," T-Mobile apparently has gone the somewhat predictable route for its 2015 Super Bowl commercial, tapping often-controversial, always sensation model, host, and reality-show star Kim Kardashian to talk about selfies for 30 seconds of your life you'll never get back.

#Uncarrier.

Foxconn plans to cut its huge workforce due to higher labor costs [Update: No, it won't]

Foxconn plans to cut its huge workforce due to higher labor costs [Update: No, it won't]

Update: Foxconn has now told CNET that Reuters' story is "completely inaccurate and totally without foundation", adding, "As we continue to increase the application of automation in our operations, the magnitude of our employee recruitment is expected to decrease in the years ahead, but we have no plans to reduce our workforce numbers now or anytime in the future."

Original story: Foxconn, the main manufacturing partner for Apple, will reduce its huge workforce in the face of higher labor costs and lower revenues. The move comes even as Apple is expecting to reveal high sales for its iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus later today, both of which are made at Foxconn factories.

Hey Instagram, can we talk about your still-missing iPad app?

I've been using Instagram for a long time. I almost always post my photos to Instagram and then share from there to Facebook and Twitter. I use it enough that I've become somewhat inured to its common limitations — its rough edges and brick walls — most people run into every day. Hearing John Gruber discuss them with Ben Thompson on The Talk Show this week, however, made them all front-of-mind for me again. As such, here are five frustrations I currently have that I'd like to see Instagram tackle this year.
