How to fix Issues with texts after moving to Android from iPhone

NewImage

This plagued me for some time…

If you’ve succumbed to the temptations of Android — or even Windows Phone or BlackBerry — there are some steps you need to take to make sure the iPhone friends you leave behind can still reach you. iMessage works by routing iPhone to iPhone messages through Apple’s servers instead of sending them as actual text messages. Unfortunately, unless you tell it to stop doing this, iMessage has no way of knowing you’ve left, at least until it times out after a couple weeks, and that’s beyond frustrating. Luckily, deactivating it is easy. Here’s how!

Someone compiled a really fascinating, shocking, and even hilarious collection of data maps that are pretty mind-blowing: http://bit.ly/1a3bV69 From average age of virginity loss around the world, to the only 22 countries Britain has not invaded (do you know them?), these visual reworkings of our globe really get you thinking. For example: 

There are more people living inside this circle than outside it

Whoa.

How to Clean Install OS X Mavericks

NewImage

 

Here we go…

The default solution for installing OS X Mavericks is to download it free from the App Store and then perform an upgrade from a previous version of Mac OS X, whether that’s from Mountain Lion or Snow Leopard. Upgrades are fast, efficient, and most important, very easy, and that’s the recommended option for the vast majority of Mac users. Nonetheless, some users may want to start fresh with a blank slate, using what’s known as a “clean install” and that’s what we’re going to cover here. Performing a clean install can be desirable for a variety of reasons, from ditching years of built-up cruft on older Macs from many years of OS X upgrades, to troubleshooting difficult issues, to transferring ownership of a Mac to a new owner.

iOS apps can be hijacked to show fraudulent content and intercept data

NewImage

Nice writeup by Dan Goodin of Ars Technica about the possible iPhone exploits using the “301 Moved Permanently” technique.

A large number of apps for iPhones and iPads are susceptible to hacks that cause them to surreptitiously send and receive data to and from malicious servers instead of the legitimate ones they were designed to connect to, security researchers said on Tuesday.

Researchers from Israel-based Skycure stumbled on the problem when they observed their own app redirecting to a wrong address. The team soon discovered that they could make many other apps exhibit the same behavior. As a result, apps that display news, stock quotes, social media content, or even some online banking details can be manipulated to display fraudulent information and intercept data sent by the end user. After an app has been tampered with once, it will continue to connect to the hacker-controlled server for an extended period of time, with no outward indication it is doing so. The weakness, dubbed HTTP request hijacking (HRH), is estimated to affect at least 10,000 titles in Apple’s App Store.
