BlackBerry’s security-focused Android identity crisis

BlackBerry DTEK50 Consider BlackBerry. Think about the company, its products, its most iconic features. What comes to mind? Business apps? A QWERTY keyboard? BBM? The once-mighty Canadian smartphone maker is banking on one word standing above all the rest: security.

Apple Watch 2 said to feature a thinner display

Apple Watch 2
According to a new report from Digitimes, the second-gen version of the Apple Watch will incorporate a display technology that should help make the device thinner than the original and perhaps free up some internal space for a slightly larger battery. Per touch panel maker and Apple component supplier TPK Holding, the Apple Watch 2 will utilize a One Glass Solution (OGS) for the display as opposed to the Glass on Glass solution currently used on the original.

‘Jason Bourne’ review roundup: Critics can’t stop hating on the latest Bourne flick

Jason Bourne Reviews
We'll have our own review up tomorrow, but for anyone currently on the fence about seeing Jason Bourne, we've put together a little review roundup so you know exactly what you're getting yourselves into. And while we wish we could say that everyone is gushing over the film and that it's a must-see, the truth is that reviews of the film have been rather tepid, to put it mildly. It's certainly nice to have Matt Damon back in the mix following the forgettable Bourne Legacy flick starring Jeremy Renner, but even an all-star cast featuring Tommy Lee Jones and Julia Stiles can't do enough to save what some critics are calling an uninspired and even boring film.

iBooks launches official Instagram account, new Harry Potter ‘book’ now available in iBookstore

Apple continues to experiment in the social media space to promote its businesses and products. In this vein, iBooks has launched its own official Instagram account this weekend.

It appears to be using a more subtle marketing approach, raising awareness of books which users can then lookup and buy from the iBookstore if they choose.

Multiple jailbreakers who used the recent Pangu jailbreak tool report unauthorized access to credit, debit, PayPal and social accounts

There’s been a lot of pent up anticipation for the iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak, and Pangu, the Chinese security researchers behind the latest tool, have answered the call.

Unfortunately, it appears that some jailbreakers have had various accounts compromised after jailbreaking, and several users on the popular subreddit r/jailbreak have corroborated these claims.

To be fair, it’s possible that these reported breaches are just a big coincidence, or that a compromise occurred after the tool left Pangu’s hands for distribution. Whatever the reason, however, it highlights one of the potential risks involved with jailbreaking. more…
