Apple Pay competitor CurrentC just says customer email addresses were hacked
"Yes. Within the last 36 hours, we learned that unauthorized third parties obtained the e-mail addresses of some of our CurrentC pilot program participants and individuals who had expressed interest in the app. Many of these email addresses are dummy accounts used for testing purposes only. The CurrentC app itself was not affected.

Microsoft borrows Mac trackpad gestures for Windows 10 | The Verge
The new gestures include a three finger swipe down action to minimize all active Windows and three finger swipe up to bring them back. An interesting addition is the ability to use a three finger swipe up gesture to activate the new Task View feature of Windows 10. Not only does Task View look like OS X’s Mission Control (Exposé) feature, the three finger swipe up is the same gesture. Microsoft is also borrowing the three finger swipe left and right to activate switching between apps, something Apple uses to move between fullscreen Mac applications. Microsoft and Apple have both borrowed desktop features from each other over the years, and former Apple CEO Steve Jobs unashamedly noted that Apple "steals" great ideas to make its own. "Good artists copy, great artists steal."

Susan Wojcicki Wants to Sell You YouTube Video Subscriptions | Re/code
One nugget that Wojcicki shared was that 50 percent of YouTube views are now coming from mobile devices. She also said that the site is growing 50 percent each year in terms of watch time (although she conceded that YouTube watch time still doesn’t come close to the average amount of time consumers watch TV each day).

When it came to questions around other subscription services — specifically, YouTube’s long-promised music subscription service — Wojcicki was once again noncommittal, and wouldn’t say whether it would launch this year.

“We’re working on it,” she said. “You’ll be one of the first to know!”

Fitbit Charge, Charge HR and Surge unveiled: Hands-on with Fitbit's new wearables - CNET
Fitbit is the runaway leader in the fitness-tracker market, and yet the company has been completely quiet in 2014. Now, as leaks have hinted, it's back at the end of the year with a trio of new products. They range in price from $130-$250 in the US, £100-£200 in the UK and $150-$300 in Australia.

Two of them -- the Charge HR and Surge -- have all-day heart-rate tracking, but, alas, they aren't coming until early 2015.

Apple Eyes New Uses for NFC Beyond iPhone Payments - The Information
The discussions illustrate Apple’s true ambitions with the technology underlying Apple Pay, which are far broader than replacing payment cards. Apple, Google and others are racing to make mobile phones control all sorts of things in our lives, from televisions to door locks in homes. For the new breed of phone apps that aim to replace physical cards, the underlying technology is the same.

Daring Fireball: Retailers Are Disabling NFC to Block Apple Pay
And the reason they don’t want to allow Apple Pay is because Apple Pay doesn’t give them any personal information about the customer. It’s not about security — Apple Pay is far more secure than any credit/debit card system in the U.S. It’s not about money — Apple’s tiny slice of the transaction comes from the banks, not the merchants. It’s about data.

Instead, Mr. Eustace planned his jump in secrecy, working for almost three years with a small group of technologists skilled in spacesuit design, life-support systems, and parachute and balloon technology.

He carried modest GoPro cameras aloft, connected to his ground-control center by an off-the-shelf radio.

The agent used the account to contact suspected criminals.

The large screen is complemented by dual front-facing stereo speakers that deliver high-fidelity sound, making it as great for movies and gaming as it is for doing work. It also comes with a Turbo Charger, so you can get up to six hours of use with only 15 minutes of charge.

It includes a cameo by what appears to be the Nexus 6 running Android L. Also, I'm pretty sure the phone is rendered to scale with the people in this ad.

Sir Jony Ive slams Apple competitors as he reveals the first phone he ever designed | Daily Mail Online
'Steve was the most focused person I've met in my life. 

'It's terrifying that when you really truly focus, it seems a bit illegal. 

'You can achieve so much. 

'What focus means is saying no with every bone in your body to something you know is a good idea but you say no because you're focused on something else.

I remember talking to Steve Jobs and asked why he was perceived as harsh. 

'And I said couldn't we be more moderate? And he said why? And I said because I care about the team. 

'And he said: 'No Jony, you're just really vain. You just want people to like you. I'm surprised at you, because I thought you really held the work up as the most important and not how you are perceived by people.''

'People misunderstand Steve because he was so focused'

Whereas now, as everyone understands, brands pay to know users.

Each laugh is charged at 0.30 euros (23p) with a cap of 24 euros (£18). Takings are up so far.

The Unsafety Net: How Social Media Turned Against Women - The Atlantic
If, as the communications philosopher Marshall McLuhan famously said, television brought the brutality of war into people’s living rooms, the Internet today is bringing violence against women out of it. Once largely hidden from view, this brutality is now being exposed in unprecedented ways. In the words of Anne Collier, co-director of ConnectSafely.org and co-chair of the Obama administration’s Online Safety and Technology Working Group, “We are in the middle of a global free speech experiment.” On the one hand, these online images and words are bringing awareness to a longstanding problem. On the other hand, the amplification of these ideas over social media networks is validating and spreading pathology.

Threats and harassment involving people in and around gaming also, sadly, appear to be proliferating and go back some time. For two years, gaming critic Sarkeesian has been dealing with harassment and threats from some who dislike her videos that critique the depiction of women in games. [UPDATE: It should be noted that Gamergate people have complained of harassment as well. The pro-Gamergate reporter Milo Yiannopoulos, for example, Tweeted a photo several weeks ago of a syringe with fluid in it, presumably mailed to him by someone who dislikes him or his work. He mostly appeared to laugh it off.]

Master trolls can build an online army out of the well-intended, by appealing to The Cause (more on that later).

The new app - with the tongue-in-cheek version number of 3.1415926 - answers the big, lingering complaint Gmail users had since the new Apple smartphones were launched, namely that the scaling was still intended for a 4-inch panel. Now, though, you get far more on your screen than you did before.
