Article inside iOS 8.1 Untethered Jailbreak for all Apple devices Released! (Details)

By mrfreak76 - 2 days ago



Some people sure do work quick. Team Pangu has just made available a jailbreak for iOS 8.1—and it works on iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and the iPad Air 2, along with older devices.

As Redmond Pie reports, there are a few small caveats: it's currently limited to SSH only and it doesn't (as yet) come with Cydia installed. But, if you like taking the life of your new and shiny device in your own hands, you can go ahead and install it now—it's already available to download for Windows.

Very seriously, going through with this might not be the best idea you ever had. But if you do... good luck!

Video inside Project Ara: Modular Phone Getting Closer.

starts to speak on the actual phone at 20:00


Quote:

By following the Android model, we are creating a free and open platform... The Ara MDK is free and open and available to everybody, so everybody could create a module per the specifications of the developer's kit and put it in the Ara module marketplace, which is analogous to the Google Play store, and sell directly to consumers.
...we can expect to see a 'pilot' phone in 2015.

Article inside Apple Pay is double charging customers

By st21 - 2 days ago

Quote:


was among the first people to try out Apple Pay the moment it came available on Monday. It was convenient, fast, and it seemingly worked without incident ... until I logged in and checked my debit card bill.
As it turns out, I've been charged twice for every single purchase I've made with Apple Pay at various stores.

A quick search of Twitter found many other people experiencing this same exact problem.

"Problems with #ApplePay - it looks like my @bankofamerica account was double charged by @Walgreens," tweeted fellow Apple Pay user Rohan Thompson.

Many of the other people on Twitter experiencing this same exact problem also mentioned they were using Apple Pay via their Bank of America (BAC) debit card.
Related: Apple Pay is now live

So I called up Bank of America and they assured me it was a problem on Apple Pay's end. That seemed feasible, because all of the purchases I made without Apple Pay were only charged one time.

Article inside Sony Looking to Cut Smartphone Sales Target Again

By Tiko377 - 3 days ago

TOKYO— Sony 6758.TO +2.65% is considering slashing its smartphone sales target again, people familiar with the matter said Wednesday, as the business struggles to perform as expected in the face of fierce competition especially in emerging markets.

The Japanese electronics giant is likely to trim its smartphone sales target by several millions of units from the current goal of 43 million for the 12 months to the end of March 2015. A lowering of the sales target would be the second downward revision of the forecast in the current business year started in April. The original goal was 50 million, which many analysts said was too optimistic.

The planned move stems from SonyÂ’s plan to reduce its presence in some markets, especially emerging nations such as China, by pulling its entry-level handsets.

Sony disappointed investors in September when it announced it would write down ÂĄ180 billion ($1.68 billion) of the smartphone segmentÂ’s business value and lowered the earnings forecast for the current business year to a ÂĄ230 billion net loss, almost five times what it said previously.

For Sony watchers, the latest plan wonÂ’t come as much of a surprise, as company executives, including chief executive Kazuo Hirai, have been signaling it will downsize its smartphone business in some countries after concluding that introducing entry-level models for emerging markets was a mistake. Sony plans to hold a meeting with investors in November, and Chief Financial Officer Kenichiro Yoshida said details of how it will update the smartphone business plan would be unveiled there.

SonyÂ’s Xperia smartphone business was once a star player for the company, but is now experiencing trouble. It has been hit by the emergence of Chinese makers of cheap handsets, while it continues to struggle in competition against market leaders such as Apple AAPL +2.72% and Samsung.

The Xperia will remain a core business for the company along with image sensors and the gaming business, but Mr. Yoshida has said at news conferences that the smartphone segment will focus on high-end models and wonÂ’t seek a major share of the global market.

Mr. Hirai said in September that Sony would cut 1,000 employees, or 15% of the global smartphone business workforce, by March. Some analysts said the cut wasn't enough to turn around the segment.

Sony announces its earnings result for the July-September period on Oct. 31. While analysts expect a net loss due to the ÂĄ180 billion smartphone charges, they say it is unlikely the company will again revise down the earnings forecast for the year for the company as a whole.

New York hedge-fund firm Third Point LLC, which unsuccessfully sought a partial spinoff of Sony’s entertainment business, said Tuesday said that it had sold its stake in Sony for a return of nearly 20%, saying in a letter to its investors that “more urgency” was necessary to “definitively turn around the company’s fortunes.”

Article inside Only LeBron Can Sell Samsung Phones and Apple's Beats at the Same Time

By Tiko377 - 3 days ago

Beats by Dre released a new ad featuring LeBron James on Sunday, in which the NBA star returns to his hometown of Akron, Ohio, to lift weights while wearing wireless ear buds. It marks perhaps the first time a highly paid Samsung Electronics (5930:KS) endorser has pitched a product made by Apple (AAPL).

The new Beats ad follows the basic formula Beats used for its FIFA World Cup spot starring Brazil’s Neymar: solemn, grounding words delivered by a parent to a superstar athlete son with a background of gritty street scenes and lush music. “This is the city that raised you,” says James’s mother Gloria, “Don’t ever forget where you came from.”

The ad helps maintain Beats by DreÂ’s status as the brand of choice for brooding in locker rooms, even as rival headphone makers strike deals with the NBA and NFL. It also represents a sly marketing feat by Apple, which bought Beats for $3 billion in May and managed to grab James in the deal despite his work on behalf of Samsung.

James has been a Beats pitchman since 2008, when he took a small stake in the company in return for his services. That deal, according to ESPN (DIS), netted James more than $30 million when Apple bought the brand. As a rule, brands demand category exclusivity from their endorsers. You canÂ’t pitch McDonaldÂ’s (MCD) hamburgers on Monday and WendyÂ’s (WEN) fries on Tuesday. James has managed to continue his work for Beats despite the apparent conflict between the top two smartphone makers in the world.

Yet how, exactly, the two brands live together in his sponsorship portfolio is a mystery. Apple, through a Beats spokesperson, declined to comment. Samsung has not responded to a request for comment. A representative for James declined to get into the specifics of his endorsement agreements but pointed out that headphones and smartphones are different categories and that James continues to be a committed user of both Beats and Samsung products.

Apple has continued to use the Beats brand since buying the company, which is unusual for the tech giant. Beats is the rare company that offers Apple cachet it doesnÂ’t already have. And while Apple has begun removing Bose products from its store shelves, it has yet to integrate Beats into its marketing or product lines in a substantial way. When it does, the conflict with Samsung over James will become more glaring.

For Samsung, the Beats relationship is not the first awkwardness in its relationship with James. In March, James sent and then deleted a Twitter (TWTR) message complaining about his smartphone.

It might just be the case that James is a big enough celebrity (and savvy enough investor) to play by his own rules. Earlier this month, when he signed on to help sell Kia Motors’ (270:KS) luxury sedan, the Korean carmaker’s press release about the deal noted that its K900 is “among his fleet of exotic automobiles.” King James doesn’t have to be exclusive.
