Apple jumps on the bug bounty train. Somewhat.

Apple is turning a new leaf as far as security it concerned. No, don't worry, it still has a firm stance on encryption. But now it is, for the first time, also looking outward for help in keeping its software and services more secure. At the Black Hat cyber security conference in Las Vegas, which is also unusual for Apple, it announced that, at long last, it will have a bug bounty program. That said, it's not yet open to everyone, which makes the $200,000 prize somewhat of an unreachable dream.

iPhone 7 release date details vs PRO and iPhone 6s

A device by the name of iPhone 7 Pro seems to have appeared once again, this one (alternately called iPhone 7 Plus) being the strangest version we've yet seen. This version of the iPhone 7 Plus looks to be coming with a metallic blue sort of tone to it - not particularly black, but not really blue like a Pepsi can, either. It's like Apple describing their pink phone as "Rose Gold" - not quite, but similar.

Watch Apple’s new iPhone ad for the Olympic opening ceremony

Apple is partial to a commercial that tugs the heartstrings, and the Cupertino firm's latest spot - set to make its broadcast debut during the Olympic Opening Ceremony on Friday - pulls no punches. "Human Family", as the advert has been called, brings out the big guns in the shape of poet laureate Dr. Maya Angelou, narrating over a gallery of iPhone users of different ages, ethnicities, and genders.

Pokemon GO Articuno video is fake: here’s how they did it

Pokemon GO Articuno video is fake: here’s how they did it

Pokemon GO users on YouTube have caught legendary birds like Articuno and Moltres, ultra-rare Pokemon like Mewtwo and Ditto, and every oddity in-between. How could they possibly have done such a thing? Is there a glitch in the game? Have they cheated? Not so much. They've done nothing of the sort. What's actually going on here is extremely simple - and they didn't need any fancy multi-thousand-dollar software to do it. All they needed was Blender.

Apple TV remote app turns iPhone into a remote control

Apple has launched a new app to give users more control over their Apple TV without having to put down their iPhone.

Using the app, the Apple TV can be controlled with a swipe of your finger and the keyboard can be used to enter text more quickly than you can with the normal Siri Remote.

Frank Ocean’s “Boys Don’t Cry” an Apple Music exclusive at first

Apple Music is just about to hit the headlines again.

Apple won’t need to pay VirnetX a single cent, for now

Apple won’t need to pay VirnetX a single cent, for now

Apple almost needed to pay VirnetX, a patent holding company, $625.6 million, a lot more than what it is demanding from Samsung over patent infringement. It seems, however, that the stars are aligning in Apple's favor. At least for now. Tyler, Texas District Judge Robert Schroeder overturned an earlier verdict awarding VirnetX that lump sum on the grounds of an unfair trial. However, Apple isn't exactly in the clear yet, as the judge did order two separate retrials, where Apple could still come out with a hefty fine.

iPad Pro ad gets people asking what a computer really is

iPad Pro ad gets people asking what a computer really is

As we've said before, mobile devices, smartphones and especially tablets, have redefined what personal computing is for people. Before, computers, specifically PCs, were associated with barely movable contraptions with a display, keyboard, and pointing device, usually a mouse. Today, however, almost everyone has a computer in their pocket or bag. Apple provokes that very same shift in thinking in its latest iPad Pro, practically equating the iPad Pro with the common notion of a computer. In other words, the "ultimate PC replacement", as it claimed before.
