New app Super lets you share casual thoughts, pics

The co-founder of Twitter, Biz Stone, is at it again. This time, his company Jelly Industries is bringing in another Twitter-like app named Super. A pretty simple app, Super lets you take images of your choosing and lay text over them. You can also include video into your post, should you need to. Rather than just start smashing out words, your flashy post first offers up a series of starters for your text, but lets you add anything you like.

Updates for OS X, iOS now available for download

Have your Apple devices ready, everyone — it’s time for updates! Today, Apple has pushed an update for both iOS and OS X, spanning just about every device they have on offer (sorry, iPod nano or Apple TV users; no soup for you).

If you’ve got an older iOS device, you’re going to want to upgrade straight away. Same goes for just about all OS X users currently on Yosemite.

The chip chop talk goes back to 2012 and springs forward to the Apple iPhone 6 chip - not made by Samsung.

Apple users in China can perhaps sleep a bit easier, provided that the three suspects in Beijing police custody are really the masterminds behind the WireLurker malware that has targeted Chinese users of Macs and iPhones. The malware, which harvested user data from infected computers and connected mobile devices, was branded as "unprecedented" due to its way of spreading and the amount of personal data it could gain through it. Apple has already taken steps to block infected programs but the rest of the work rests on users.

It was realized several years ago that iMessage users were in a bit of a bind if they ever wished to switch to a non-Apple smartphone. Once you used iMessage with your phone number to accept messages, you were sort of stuck there. You couldn't switch to an Android phone, for example, and expect to keep getting messages - iMessage continued to get said messages, even if you weren't using iMessage. Apple released a tool to fix this - you can now de-register numbers from iMessage. Apparently they did not release said tool fast enough, as Judge Lucy Koh is on the case.
