Unlike the iPhone, if someone steals your Apple Watch, they can easily reset the device (bypass the passcode), and pair it with a new iPhone logged in to a different iCloud account. In other words, it’s totally feasible to steal an Apple Watch and set it up on a different device as if you just purchased it from an Apple Store.
Given the emphasis Apple has placed on security in recent years, and how much the company has improved the iPhone as of late, I'd also strongly suspect it won't be too long before we see similar or the same theft-deterrents on the Apple Watch as well.
When Yale cardiologist E. Kevin Hall isn’t treating children with heart defects, he’s writing code.
Using his combined knowledge of medicine and computer science, Hall is developing an app on ResearchKit, a new Apple software platform intended to transform the iPhone into a clinical research tool.
Hall has never put his medical and technological acumen together in quite this way. But new tools like ResearchKit are forging some unlikely unions between physicians and programmers. And Hall is both.
When it comes to getting organized, Evernote can be a powerful tool to have in your arsenal. In fact, it's our favorite note-taking platform--by far--because it lets you do so much more than just take basic notes. Through Evernote's web and mobile apps, you can create digital notebooks for everything from your grandmother's lasagna recipe to ideas for your next great novel, and everything in between. But you can also use it to backup your photos, create slideshow presentations, and manage your calendar. Read on for more cool Evernote uses that you might not have thought of.
Of course, technically any Mac mini can act as a server. Practically, I'd restrict server use to only the high-end Mac mini model.
Short for “Good Vibes Only,” GVO brings you news articles and videos that will lift up your spirits instead of bringing you down.
Apple Pay is currently offered only to holders of some American debit and credit cards, but the system can be used far beyond the borders of the United States. I recently took a round-the-world trip, and used the opportunity to research Apple Pay globally for TidBITS.
I hate to poke holes in good-faith efforts to improve the integrity and security of individuals’ and businesses’ data, but in just the last week, I’ve seen three separate efforts that each attempt to fix a problem, but only solve a top layer. The underlying defects remain, and they’re not at all the fault of those companies.
However, the road to hell is built on good intentions, and the best way to get off that highway is to examine all efforts with a steely glint.
Apple’s upcoming Beats-based streaming music service will likely be named “Apple Music” and will have deep social networking integration for artists, according to industry sources briefed on the plans for the new service.
