Spot.me Apple Pay to Android app can pose a security risk

For all their advertised benefits, these rising mobile payment systems are pretty much walled gardens of their own.

Apple now allows everyone to create, save files in iCloud

Apple now allows everyone to create, save files in iCloud

One of the things Apple had working against them when it came to creating files for use in the cloud was actually creating files in the cloud itself. Though you could save a Pages document or presentation made via Keynote in iCloud, creating one via iCloud.com wasn’t really a thing. Until now.

With their recently (today) seeded OS X 10.10.3 and iOS 8.3 betas, Apple made some changes to emoji. With a long-press on some emoji, you can now see new-look faces with different skin tones.
