I just love technology.

In the 14 months since Touch ID launched, it has become a standout feature of the iPhone and iPad line of devices. It makes paying for apps easier than ever, it’s a shift toward enhanced mobile security and it was the key to making Apple Pay a reality… but it still has its limitations.

Reddit user Xenon808 asked a question this week that many of us have probably pondered in the past:

“Why do you have to type in your PIN after rebooting your phone or after a certain amount of time?”

Hmm. I’m still not sold on this idea.

Even though Apple released two new iPad models this year, including the iPad Air 2 and the iPad mini 3, only the 9.7-inch version received a significant upgrade, with the mini model only getting a Touch ID fingerprint sensor and an extra color option. A report from Chinese publication Economic Daily News suggests that starting next year, Apple will discontinue the iPad mini line and replace it with the bigger 12.2-inch iPad Pro model.

Apple has finally released its new desktop operating system, OS X Yosemite, which comes with a variety of interesting features, but not all of them will be available to all Mac users. In the OS X Yosemite upgrade instructions posted on its website, Apple has also listed feature requirements that note which Mac models can support some of Yosemite’s coolest features, including Continuity and Handoff.

Nothing new in my mind.

According to Edward Snowden, people who care about their privacy should stay away from popular consumer Internet services like Dropbox, Facebook, and Google.

Snowden conducted a remote interview today as part of the New Yorker Festival, where he was asked a couple of variants on the question of what we can do to protect our privacy.

His first answer called for a reform of government policies. Some people take the position that they “don’t have anything to hide,” but he argued that when you say that, “You’re inverting the model of responsibility for how rights work”:

When you say, ‘I have nothing to hide,’ you’re saying, ‘I don’t care about this right.’ You’re saying, ‘I don’t have this right, because I’ve got to the point where I have to justify it.’ The way rights work is, the government has to justify its intrusion into your rights.

He added that…

With Apple preparing to show off an updated lineup of iPads on Thursday, designer Martin Hajek has asked the question “What if the new iPad’s were to borrow the design language from the iPhone6/6+?” on his site. As he has done in the past, Hajek has mocked up some remarkable 3D…

I’ve always tried to shy away from third party charge and sync cables for my iOS devices lately due the fact that I don’t want to take the risk of damaging my prized possessions since Apple took control of who’s after market products would be allowed to work with them. So when I was asked to review a rather nice looking cable from Winnergear I was going to be sceptical from the start.

So if you watch the above video you will see I was pleasantly surprised and very satisfied with the results. This cable is cheaper than Apples own cable and looks better to boot. The aluminium plug casings are tough and durable, and match your MacBook or other aluminium laptops superbly which adds a nice touch to an already nice braided cable tough and tangle free so no more cursing as you get it out of your bag. My only criticism of the one I was sent is the fact that the braid is white and will eventually show up the general dirt and skin oils from handling but that of course has absolutely no bearing on the fact that tis cable is perfect in it’s operation and is much cheaper than the genuine Apple branded cables which let’s face it, are expensive and don’t stand up to the wear and tear of every day handling.
