If you haven't noticed, iFans now has an Apple Watch section for all your thread creating needs. Any sort of reviews, questions, etc. pertaining to the Apple Watch would go there. Do you have an Apple Watch? Do you have questions about it?

Parrot | BT Over-Ear Headphones | $ 399.99

Banner.jpg

Parrot has made a name for themselves with a number of different accessories. From their drones to their automotive products. The Zik, on the other hand, is their bluetooth, noise-canceling headphone. The Zik 2.0 represents their second revision to the headphone.

Design

From a design standpoint, the Parrot Zik 2.0 is actually quite pleasing to the eye. From the outside, there is very little plastic parts visible. The majority of the design stems around the colored leather that wraps around the entire build while the metal accents give the design a second dimension. Whatever color you choose: white, blue, black, yellow, tan, or red, it is sure to look nice and match your personality or devices.

Here is the version of it that has Mobile Substrate working [No longer the latest version; see the edit]

Edit: I didn't make it clear. Their official website does not yet have a link to 2.1, but as the iDB article says, a redditor found 2.1 files on Taig's site.

Also this works with the latest 8.4 beta. So you might want to wait to wait to see if Apple pushes a fix with 8.4 so you won't need to restore from 8.3 to get the latest software if it isn't patched in 8.4.

Edit: The latest version is 2.1.2. It is an official release. Make sure you download it from here

I think the screenshot speaks for itself. I'm not sure if there is any content on there yet, so I'm not starting my trial until I know it's working :p

I was going through the list of talks scheduled for Black Hat USA and noticed this one, titled Review and Exploit Neglected Attack Surfaces in iOS 8, to be given by three members of the Pangu team. They'll review some previously known attacks (might be some they've used in their jailbreaks), but also present new ones with proofs of concept. It should be very interesting for those interested in the technical aspect of jailbreaking and hacking in general.

Black Hat is one of the biggest events in information security worldwide, and takes place in Las Vegas on August 1st through August 6th. The first four days are trainings and the main event, with the briefings, is on the 5th and 6th. Unfortunately, registration is hardly affordable at over $2000, but recordings of the talks should be available on YouTube later this year or early next year.

Since the WWDC keynote yeaterday, Apple has updated their website to showcase the new features of iOS 9, OS X 10.11, watchOS 2, and Apple Music. However one tab from their navigation bar was starkly missing: iPod.

This may not come as a surprise as there has been a consistent absence of iPod updates in the previous keynote presentations and it seems that Apple is moving away from the iPod product line and instead focusing their attention on music services.

It would be a shame if they discontinued the iPod line entirely though. Hopefully that won't be the case.

WWDC 2015 Roundup

Another WWDC rounds up this year with some new announcements from Apple. Though many people were wanting new hardware, none were announced; this is a developers' conference after all. With that said, there were a few key things that Apple did announce at this year's WWDC.

OS X El Capitan

The main feature here is a new window management system. This would also find its way to the iPad's iOS. Otherwise, we have a smarter Spotlight (which is acting a lot like Siri now-a-days) and searching in general. Spotlight also understands English searches a little better (vs keyword search) Incremental updates in many of the applications as usual.

Public beta starts in July, release is slated for the fall

iOS 9

With OS X' Spotlight updates, Apple brought many of the language understanding over to Siri as well. Siri is a little more aware as well in the new iOS knowing what you are currently doing and what you are planning on doing. Other things...

Apple Music

A new, and expected, product was revealed today at WWDC. It was slipped in right at the end... Apple Music. Apple's answer to Spotify, Pandora, and many other music services. It runs on three things: a streaming service, 24/7 radio station, and an artist connection.

We'll start with the artist connection. This is essentially a social media profile for individual artists to share things on. From new music, videos, photos, and exclusives. You'll be able to keep track of your favorite artists and see where they are.

Apple also made a new radio station that will stream live on the web. This station will work like a traditional radio station with a DJ that will only play "great music" (whatever that is). It won't work like traditional internet radio and run 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It's called Beats 1.

Then comes the part most of us are interested in, the music streaming service. It'll feature playlists and recommendations currated by "music...
