Researchers crack iPad PINs by tracking the fingers that enter them

What’s the easiest way to find out someone’s password? Watch them enter it, of course, using the simple hacking technique known as shoulder surfing. Cameras and software have successfully been used by researchers to automate and improve the accuracy of snooping on smartphone users with such observational methods, but they require a direct line-of-sight to work. Now, as Wired reports, a group at the University of Massachusetts Lowell has developed a way to capture iPad passcodes without needing any kind of on-screen cue. A camera is still required, but because the position of the lockscreen keypad is static, their software references finger movement against tablet orientation to estimate the PIN by the way it’s entered.

Apple now letting UK customers trade in their iPad at retail stores

Seven months after it began letting customers trade in their iPhones at its retail stores, Apple’s expanded its Reuse and Recycle programme to include iPads. From today, anyone with an iPad 2, iPad 3, iPad 4 and iPad mini can walk into an Apple Store, hand over their tablet and receive credit towards a new iOS device. However, the company will not accept current-generation devices like the iPad Air or iPad mini with Retina display. As with its iPhone programme, Apple will assess the condition of devices before providing a trade-in value, so don’t expect a huge return if your iPad has seen better days.

12 million people are already using Office for iPad

Microsoft’s version of Office for iPad has apparently been a rousing success. So much so, that the company’s taken to Twitter to boast that the productivity suite has topped 12 million downloads. In a week. As the Seattle Times points out, though, Redmond hasn’t said how many Office 365 subscriptions (which are required to create and edit documents) have been sold alongside the free, document-view-only downloads. We reached out to Microsoft for clarification, and, well, weren’t given much. A spokesperson told us that the company is extremely pleased with the interest that Office has gotten so far, but that it has no additional details to share. So, there’s that.

iPad Air wins Best Tablet at Mobile World Congress, and it wasn’t even there

Interesting fact: the iPad Air won the GMA’s Best Tablet award at MWC 2014 despite not being in attendance. Silly, right? It’s not that the iPad Air isn’t deserving of praise. It’s actually a pretty fine device in its own right.

tim-cook-ipad-air-hed-2013

 

But the announcement that it won best tablet screams “automatic win,” “default victory,” and “handed to Apple on a silver platter.” With Apple’s reputation for being awarded brownie points based on sheer reputation, we wouldn’t blame anyone for thinking those things.

Some of you might be of the opinion that there are many more devices deserving that recognition and we wouldn’t be quick to disagree. Here are 5 tablets we feel are more deserving of GMA’s Best Mobile Tablet award handed out at Mobile World Congress given their performance and, you know,  the fact that most of them were actually at MWC.

Samsung Galaxy Note Pro

This might be the safest bet there is, but the Samsung Galaxy Note Pro definitely deserves to be talked about among the greats of yesteryear. The device comes in three different sizes — 8.4, 10.1, and 12.2 inches — yet all of them come with an astounding screen resolution of 2560 x 1600 (compare that to the iPad Air’s 2048 x 1536).

Samsung-Galaxy-Tab-Note-Pro-featured-large

Samsung’s decision to go with the 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 or, depending on the model, Exynos 6 chipset definitely stands out, and you aren’t going to find many other devices packing 3GB of RAM right now. Add to that the fact that it has a slimmer profile than that of the iPad Air’s and includes the Wacom-enabled S Pen technology the Note series has become famous for, and it’s stunning that Samsung didn’t get any recognition here.

We’re hoping the oversight is because GMA decided to go with what launched in the 2013 calendar year more than anything, because then at least this decision would make a lot more sense. Need more convincing? Maybe Samsung’s barrage of jabs at Apple in their latest advertising campaign would do the trick.

Nexus 7

The Nexus 7 always seems to get a few brownie points due to its status as a Nexus device and its ridiculously low price tag, but we can’t feel guilty for considering those things. You’d be hard-pressed to find another tablet worth getting for the money, and we’d venture to guess it’d attract a lot of attention even with a couple hundred more dollars tacked onto the cost of admission.

New Nexus 7 hand wm

Always on our minds when it comes to talking about the Nexus 7 is its 7-inch 1920 x 1200 display, though the rest of the tape reads just as nice. Under the hood is a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro clocked at 1.5GHz, 2GB of RAM, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0, a 5 megapixel camera and more. You put this one on the ballet next to the iPad Air and you’d have our vote.

LG G Pad 8.3

LG’s G Pad 8.3 wasn’t the most powerful device among its Android-donning peers, though it can still go toe-to-toe with any tablet in terms of sheer performance. The combo of a Snapdragon 600 processor and 2GB of RAM ensure that, no doubt.

But LG’s main focus with the G Pad 8.3 was to provide a tablet that felt “just right” in your hands. The 8.3-inch form factor was received rather well from those who’ve used it, and LG certainly did do a fine job of striking a nice balance between ergonomics, looks and screen real estate.

lg-g-pad-8.3-3

It’s a tablet that feels “just right” in your hands, which is important for anyone looking to tote these around day-to-day.And you just won’t find multi-tasking features like Slide Aside, QSlide, and QRemote on an iPad Air.

Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet

This was a tablet announced just this week at Mobile World Congress, so we doubt its name was near any mega-tablet-voting-booth setup the GMA may or may not have used. The Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet is admittedly the first one that really got our attention from the electronics giant from Japan, and we’d definitely hold out for its arrival up against dropping $500 for an iPad Air today.

sony-xperia-z2-tablet-6

Reading off this thing’s specs would be like defining the American Dream for us tech geeks:

  • 10.1-inch 1920 x 1200 Triluminos display
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 2.3GHz quad-core CPU
  • 3GB RAM
  • 16GB internal storage with microSD slot
  • 8.1 megapixel rear camera
  • 2.2 megapixel front facing camera
  • 6,000mAh battery
  • 4G LTE
  • Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, MHL 3.0, and WiFi
  • Android 4.4 KitKat

Of course, specs alone don’t make or break a device. It’s the culmination of all of Sony’s various unique services and features, such as Music and Video Unlimited and all of the great camera features they take pride in, that make up what’s so special about the Xperia Z2 Tablet.

You can tell Sony has learned a lot from their early stumbles in the smartphone space, and this tablet is the first one we’d seriously put toe-to-toe with anything Apple has to offer. Peep our hands-on video from Mobile World Congress to see exactly what we’re talking about.

ASUS Transformer Pad TF701T

ASUS might not be the only OEM making major noise in the tablet world anymore, but they’re still putting devices out that are worthy of recognition. The Transformer Book Duet is one-such device. I mean, what more could you ask for from a device that allows you to switch between Windows and Android nearly instantly at the touch of a button? Mind you, it can do that in either tablet or laptop mode, whereas other hybrids typically force you to use Windows in laptop mode and Android in tablet mode.

transformer book duet td300 5

This concoction is made up of a 13.3-inch 1080p display, a 128GB solid-state hard drive, a core i7 processor and 4GB of RAM. It might cost a lot more than a base iPad Air model would, but the iPad Air doesn’t have a fully functional desktop operating system available to you at the quick click of a button, does it?

What’s your pick?

All of these are fantastic devices, and there are many more out there that we haven’t even covered. Would you take any of the devices above over the iPad Air? Would it be something else? Would it be anything at all? We want to pick your brains, so be sure to drop a vote and see if we can’t give some of these other great devices recognition for being outright beasts.

New Samsung ads skewer iPhone and iPad

After its creeptastic holiday ad for the Galaxy Gear, Samsung is back on form with its latest TV spots for the Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1. Poking fun at arch-rival Apple’s iPhone and iPad, Samsung actually does a decent job of showcasing both devices’ strengths over the iOS-based competition — “two things on screen at once, versus up to one thing on screen at once.”

Check out the Tab Pro spot above — a riff on this iPad “pencil” ad, by the way — and head past the break for the Note 3 ad, featuring LeBron James.

Opera’s iPad browser loses navigation buttons, gains lockscreen music controls

Since its launch in September, Opera’s iPad-centric browser Coast has struggled to remain as visible as some of its more popular mobile apps. In an attempt to breathe some life into the app, the company today dropped a new update that introduces a number of new customization, navigation and media features that set it apart from Apple and Google’s browser offerings. In version 2.0, Opera has ditched the familiar forward and back buttons in favor of the gestures it supported at launch, so expect your swiping finger to get more of a workout. The app now lets you set wallpapers using images from your Photo Roll and gives you the option to select which apps to open PDF files in, whether it be iBooks, Dropbox or another PDF-compatible app. Coast now also features its own media player, which is capable of handling music playback from the iPad lockscreen. The new update is said to make browsing speedier and more secure than before — very helpful if you need to make a quick escape from some of the nastier corners of the internet.

SwingSong – Musical Pendulums App Released for iPad

SwingSong SwingSong
Rating: not yet rated
Price: free  App Store


TamerZone LLC today is proud to announce the release of SwingSong, a new iPad app that lets users explore the physics of related frequencies with animated musical pendulums. Colorful simulated pendulums play sounds at the ends of each swing. Users “compose” music by arranging pendulums, choosing sounds, and letting their creations swing.

The inspiration for SwingSong is a popular science exhibit known as the “Pendulum Snake” or “Pendulum Waves”. In these exhibits, a dozen or so freely swinging pendulums have carefully chosen lengths so that each pendulum completes a different number of swings in one minute. A single pendulum is admittedly pretty boring, but multiple pendulums with related frequencies can generate surprisingly complex – even beautiful – patterns. SwingSong adds a musical dimension, so users can experience these patterns both visually and aurally.

SwingSong does not require a background in science or music to enjoy. The user adds and positions pendulums by simply tapping and dragging.
