How to tell a verified Twitter account is actually...

Spammers are already filling up Twitter with fake accounts since Elon Musk scuttled the service's verification process, and they are very, very good at fooling people. Here's what you can do to see what's real.Previously, "Verified" meant a celebrity really was the celebrity they claimed to be, or the company was the company it said. Now it only means that someone has been motivated to create a Twitter account, and able to pay $8 per month to get the famous blue Verified symbol.Hopefully Elon Musk's pitiful grab for $8/month from users is getting him the income he wants. Because no spammer in the world is going to hesitate at paying that trivial amount, not when the rewards are potentially enormous for them.

Apple Limits iPhone File-Sharing Tool Used For...

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Bloomberg: Apple has limited the AirDrop wireless file-sharing feature on iPhones in China after the mechanism was used by protesters to spread images to other iPhone owners. AirDrop allows the quick exchange of files like images, documents or videos between Apple devices. The latest version -- iOS 16.1.1, released Wednesday -- caps the window in which users can receive files from non-contacts at 10 minutes. The previous options didn't limit the time involved. Users could choose to get files from everyone, no one or just their contacts. After the 10-minute period expires, the system reverts to the mode where files can only be received from contacts. That means that individuals won't be able to get an AirDrop transfer from a stranger without actively turning on the feature in the preceding few minutes. It makes it harder for anyone seeking to distribute content and reach people in a discreet manner.

Apple made the change to AirDrop on...

From a report: The lawsuit, filed in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington accuses Apple and Amazon of seeking to eliminate third-party Apple resellers on Amazon Marketplace in a scheme to stifle competition, and maintain premium pricing for Apple products. The class action alleges an "unlawful horizontal agreement between Apple and Amazon to eliminate or at least severely reduce the competitive threat posed by third-party merchants," which attorneys say violates federal antitrust laws and has cost consumers.

The lawsuit says the parties' illegal agreement brought the number of third-party sellers of Apple products on Amazon Marketplace from roughly 600 to just seven sellers -- a loss of 98%, and by doing so,...

Musk has pledged to make the badge available to all Twitter users, this morning calling it "the great leveler." He has expressed distaste at the verification badge being provided only to accounts of public figures, businesses, celebrities, journalists, and other high-profile users who are in danger of being impersonated on the social network.

It's most often said to stand for Really Simple Syndication, but no one will ever test you on that.What practically everyone will do is tell you that RSS is over. News feeds like Apple News+, or perhaps Twitter lists, they have killed RSS.

Amazon and Apple 'Colluded' to Make iPhone...

Apple and Amazon worked together to raise the price of iPhones and iPads by eliminating third-party Amazon sellers who offered Apple products at a lower cost, according to a new antitrust lawsuit filed today in Washington.

The complaint, filed by Hagens Berman law firm, says that Apple and Amazon had an "unlawful horizontal agreement" that reduced the "competitive threat posed by third-party merchants," a violation of federal antitrust laws. There were around 600 third-party sellers of Apple devices on Amazon Marketplace, which was whittled down to just seven.

Amazon began eliminating third-party sellers after it signed a 2019 deal with Apple to limit the number of resellers on Amazon marketplace to 20 per country. In exchange, Apple provided Amazon with a discounted wholesale price for iPhones and iPads.

Elon Musk Nixes 'Official' Label for...

Twitter will not be moving forward with an "Official" label that would be used to identify companies, major media outlets, public figures, and others who are in danger of being impersonated on the social network, Twitter CEO Elon Musk said today.

Just hours after Twitter began rolling out the "Official" checkmark that was provided to some accounts alongside the standard white and blue verification badge, Musk said that he has "killed" the feature.

"Blue check will be the great leveler," Musk added in another tweet. The white checkmark on a blue background was traditionally provided to higher-profile accounts that went through a verification process, but with Musk's takeover of Twitter, the badge will be provided to all Twitter Blue subscribers who pay $7.99 per month for a Twitter Blue subscription.

Spotify Launching Redesigned Apple Watch App With...

Spotify today announced it is rolling out a redesigned Apple Watch app with a "new and improved listening experience" that allows users to more easily browse music and podcasts in "Your Library" and more quickly download music for offline playback.

In a blog post, Spotify said the new design includes larger artwork, new animations, the ability to swipe to like a song, a blue dot next to new podcast episodes, and more. The new design will require an updated version of the Spotify app rolling out on the App Store — it doesn't yet appear to be available for all users as of this writing.

As noted by The Verge, Spotify remains silent about its Hi-Fi audio tier that it promised to launch back in 2021. Apple Music offers lossless audio at no...

Apple Adds New Supplier for iPhone 14 Pro Displays...

LG has started supplying Apple with OLED displays for the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, according to Korea's ETNews. It's unclear how many orders LG will split with Samsung, which was the exclusive supplier of the displays for these devices until now.

The supplier diversification reduces risk and will likely allow Apple to negotiate lower costs in the future, as LG and Samsung compete for orders.

It's unclear when iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max models with LG displays will start being shipped by Apple, but it's unlikely that customers will be able to notice a difference between models with LG and Samsung displays. Apple has routinely relied on multiple suppliers for some other iPhone components, ranging from storage to batteries.

iPhone 14 Pro displays use low-power LTPO technology for ProMotion, enabling a variable refresh rate between 10Hz and 120Hz. The display can also ramp down...

Kroger Begins Accepting Apple Pay at All Ralphs...

Southern California grocery store chain Ralphs today began accepting Apple Pay at all of its 184 locations across the state, according to a company spokesperson, allowing customers to easily pay with an iPhone or Apple Watch at checkout.

Ralphs accepting Apple Pay is notable given that the chain's parent company Kroger has largely refused to accept the payment method since it launched in 2014, despite frequent customer requests. The company instead offers its own service called Kroger Pay, which allows customers to scan a QR code at checkout to pay with a card stored in the Kroger app. The only other Kroger subsidiary to accept Apple Pay is QFC in the Northwest.

In a press release earlier this year, Apple said that Apple Pay is accepted at more than 90 percent of U.S. retailers, with some major holdouts including Walmart, The Home Depot, Lowe's, and Kroger. We've reached out to Kroger to see if the company has any plans to expand Apple Pay acceptance to other grocery...

Primitive Folding iPhone Built From Motorola Razr...

A Chinese YouTuber has gone to great lengths to construct a foldable iPhone out of existing parts, merging the internal components of an ‌iPhone‌ with the foldable chassis of a Motorola Razr. The resulting device is an ‌iPhone‌ that is able to be folded in half.

The video is in the Chinese language with subtitles, and walks through the process used for deconstructing both devices. All of the internal components of the ‌iPhone‌ X were removed and re-enginereed to fit inside of a foldable Motorola Razr chassis.

Called the "‌iPhone‌ V," the foldable ‌iPhone‌ is functional, running iOS, and the display clearly bends in half. Several ‌iPhone‌ models appear to have been torn down and converted into the foldable design, though the walkthrough focuses on the ‌iPhone‌ X.

Rumors suggest that Apple is working on foldable ‌iPhone‌ prototypes, but as of right now, there is no solid word on what an Apple foldable might...

In a series of tweets shared today, Kuo said that Chinese supplier Luxshare has expanded production of the second-generation AirPods Pro to fill the gap and is now the exclusive supplier of the wireless earbuds for the time being.

"Goertek's suspension of production is more likely due to production issues rather than demand issues," said Kuo, without elaborating on what the specific issues may have been. Kuo said it's unclear when Goertek will resume production of the AirPods Pro. It's also unclear if the issues affect any second-generation AirPods Pro already sold.

Apple's Brain Drain Hinders Efforts To Pick Its...

Turnover at Apple has hindered efforts to replace the head of product design, leaving a gaping hole at the helm of a prominent team that's been key to the iPhone maker's prolonged success. From a report: Legendary design leader Jony Ive departed Apple in 2019, and his replacement for hardware design lasted just about three years. Now the department -- still in Ive's shadow -- needs a new leader at a time when there are few obvious choices. And the fate of Apple's hardware devices, which accounted for more than three-quarters of its nearly $400 billion in revenue last year, hangs in the balance. Evans Hankey, who has held the job since Ive left, informed Apple last month that she will be departing. Though Hankey had been at the company for about 20 years, her relatively brief tenure at the top of the industrial design team made it hard to establish a distinct vision for new products. Apple also lacks a clear succession plan for the job, a significant problem for a company that sells...

When something goes wrong with your Mac, it's a boon to have a separate, external drive that you can work from — but Apple no longer makes that easy. Here's how to do it.The short answer to how you make a bootable external working drive is very, very carefully. You're going to completely wipe that external drive, for one thing, so you really need to be sure that you've copied off any important data from it.It's also possible that if you make a mistake along the way, it's conceivable that you could end up wiping your Mac's internal drive. It's possibly fortunate, then, that Apple throws many hurdles in the way to stop you making a macOS Ventura external bootable drive.

Apple's efforts to replace its former design chief Jony Ive have been hindered by increased turnover within the company's product design team over the past few years, according to Bloomberg's Mark Gurman. The report claims that Apple has lost the majority of senior designers who worked under Ive, with many of them jumping ship to his new design firm LoveFrom, which he started after leaving Apple in 2019.

At least 15 senior Apple designers have left the company since Ive moved to a part-time role in 2015, whereas turnover was rare between 2000 and 2015, according to the report. Only a "small handful" of senior designers from the Ive era are said to remain.

Apple's AR Glasses Could Slip To 2026, Says...

While Apple is still expected to release its first VR/AR headset next year, the bigger step to mainstream adoption -- the Google Glass-style AR glasses -- may have slipped two years according to one analyst. Tom's Guide reports: In an email to MarketWatch, Haitong International Tech Research's Jeff Pu wrote that Apple Glasses could now be up to four years from making their first appearance. "We now expect the AR Glass to be postponed to 2025-2026, due to design issues," Pu wrote. This is significant as just five months ago Pu stated that the AR glasses could be announced as soon as 2024.

The term "design difficulties" is, of course, a bit of a catch-all.
