AntiSec Hacks FBI Servers, Leaks 1 Million Apple Device IDs

AntiSec, a splinter group of the popular hacktivist group Anonymous, has claimed that it was recently able to break into FBI's servers. As a result of this breach, the group claims, it obtained more than 12 million Apple UDIDs. It has now leaked 1 million of these on the web.


The group claims that it was able to break into the notebook of a FBI agent who belonged to the FBI Regional Cyber Action Team and New York FBI Office Evident Response Team. The breach was achieved by exploiting the AtomicReferenceArray vulnerability in Java.

During the hack session, it was found out that a certain file titled ‘NCFTA_iOS_devices_intel.csv’ was contained on the machine. AntiSec downloaded the file, only to find that it contained the device IDs of some 12 million Apple users. The UDIDs were accompanied with names, zip code, phone numbers as well as other information. AntiSec has posted 1 million of these UDIDs online over here.

What this suggests is that the data has been handed over to FBI by Apple. Apple is known to be quite friendly and complacent towards security agencies. The file name contains the acronym ‘NCFTA’ which probably stands for National Cyber Forensics & Training Alliance. NCFTA “functions as a conduit between private industry and law enforcement.”

In other words, it is a body that lets security agencies gather all kinds of user data from private companies. And Apple seems to be a part of it. It is quite disappointing to note that while on the face, most tech giants blatantly argue that they would never divulge any user information to the security agencies, things seem to be different behind the scenes.

The iPhone 4S was initially launched in partnership with AT&T, Verizon Wireless, and Sprint Nextel last year in October. Since then, it has been the top-selling smartphone in the U.S. each month. On the other side, Samsung Galaxy S III was launched on May 2012. It became so popular that Samsung sold 10 million Samsung Galaxy S III smartphone in just 2 month.

Recently analyst firm Canaccord Genuity has revealed that in August 2012 Samsung Galaxy S III was the top-selling smartphone in the U.S.

4 Months Sales Report Of Smartphones

T. Michael Walkley, an analyst of Canaccord Genuity firm, said, “We believe this is the first month since the iPhone 4S launched in October 2011 that it was not the top-selling smartphone in the U.S. market.”

Microsoft Attempts To Gain More Control By Changing TOS

After the change in Terms of Service (TOS) by Google, now it’s time for Microsoft. They have proposed a new TOS mainly concerning policy on privacy and dispute settlement issues. Microsoft informed its clients about the changes in policy via mail, saying that the new TOS will in effect from October 19, 2012.

Compared to the previous policy it can be said that the new policy is going to benefit Microsoft at least in two ways. The first case is about the usage of customer data. The new policy has granted Microsoft the authority to use customer data across its cloud properties. The previous user data usage policy that such data is subject to be used “solely to the extent necessary to provide the service” is replaced by the announcement that Microsoft reserves the right to use user data to “provide, protect and improve Microsoft products and services”. That means Microsoft gets the authority to extract content from Hotmail, SkyDrive and Office Suite to personalize Bing search results for individual users.

Again, because of the new policy US users will no longer be able to file any lawsuit against Microsoft. They have to settle disputes with arbitration rather than litigation. The newly added class action waiver contract also gives Microsoft safety from all class action suits. Previously such changes have been noticed in the TOS of Sony and Netflix.

Apple Officially Invites For iPhone 5 Launch On September 12

At last, the season long wait is going to be over. Apple sends out the press invitation for its next event of possible iPhone 5 release. They sent out e-mail invitation to the media persons on September 4. It’s basically an invitation only event. It will be held on September 12 in San Fransisco.

The image of the invitation hints out that Apple is going to name their next smartphone as rumored “iPhone 5”. Numeric number “12” illustrates the date of the event & there is a shadow under 12 which indicates a large 5 which actually depicts about iPhone 5 launch. The invitation reveals little about what will be announced. The tagline says only, “It’s almost here.” Apple may release iOS 6 on the same day.

We all are waiting for September 12. TTJ will cover all the news on that day…stay tuned.

The upcoming iPad mini rendered in 3D based on reports and leaked schematics

Following the report yesterday with information about the iPad mini’s design, specifically that the iPad mini would look like a larger iPod touch (with skinnier bezels than the full-sized iPad), we’ve made some 3D renders.
These renders, courtesy of designer Maurizio Vitale, are based off of our reported information. More importantly, however, is that these renders are also based off of the leaked iPad mini schematics from July, which basically match our information from sources.
The height, width, screen-size, and more were all calculated based on those aforementioned schematics. Better yet, we’ve also got an iPad mini render that compares the device in size to the current Retina display iPad with a 9.7-inch display. That comparison is also based on the dimensions garnered from the schematics.

How to Make Animated GIFs on Your Smartphone

Once the hallmark of low-end online ads — dancing girls for dating sites and jiggling bellies for weight loss products — animated GIF images are popping up everywhere. You’ll see them used throughout Tumblr and even on big news sites in place of video.
An animated GIF file is like a little cartoon and is much smaller than a video file. It’s easy to attach to an email, post to Facebook or pop into your own blog.
You can make animated GIFs for free from your smartphone, which is probably what you are using to shoot photos and video anyway. You’ll need an app like GIFBoom (the runaway favorite for iPhone). It’s available for free from the App Store and for Android from Google Play.
You may log in with Facebook, Twitter or an email address. Choose a video from your phone’s camera roll. GIFBoom converts your video into single frames. Choose up to 20 sequential frames to make your animated GIF. You then have the option to have your GIF play backwards or forwards.
You can add filters for different effects, such as black and white, sepia or night-vision (which makes everything green). Then preview your GIF and save it. At this point, you can email or text it to a friend or post to social media accounts, including Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr.
You can also make GIFs from still images stored in your phone or take pictures (in a quick series like a flipbook). You can choose up to 20 images for your GIF. If you want to save a GIF to your own camera roll, go into the app’s “Advanced Settings” and turn on “Save to Camera Roll.”
GIFBoom is also a social network, similar to Instagram. In fact, it’s tough to tell the difference between the two when you log on. You can browse by popular GIFs and search by tags. Any GIF can be “reboomed” (reposted) to your own newsfeed.

Apple Is Now the Most Valuable Company in History

Apple‘s valuation reached $621.64 billion Monday morning, making it the most valuable company in history.
The company’s stock reached an all-time high of $664.65 per share early Monday afternoon, following strong sales projections for its as-yet-unannounced next-generation iPhone device, the iPhone 5.
The record was previously held by another U.S. technology company, Microsoft, at its height in 1999.
Apple became the most valuable company in the U.S. when it reached a $346.74 billion valuation in mid-2011, topping Exxon Mobil for the first time. It surpassed Microsoft’s market capitalization in 2010.
Apple setting a record valuation now is especially impressive given the passing of co-founder and CEO Steve Jobs in October as well as its relatively modest price-earnings ratio: 15.57. Amazon, by comparison, has a P/E of 291.73, and even Facebook’s beleaguered stock is still trading at a P/E of 68.51.

The simplest, most powerful radio and wireless speaker for iPhone + iPad ever

The HiddenRadio & Bluetooth Speaker is the simplest and most intuitive product ever.
The HiddenRadio & Bluetooth Speaker is based off minimal, timeless design and user intuition. When asleep it hides all its functions, being silent and unanimated. To turn it on you simply twist and lift the cap; the further you lift the cap the more internal volume is created and will amplify to over 80dB of crystal clear sound. This unique design connects and captivates the user through its intuitive functionality.


The speaker wirelessly supports iPhone, iPad or any other smartphone, tablet or computer via Bluetooth technology. If you have multiple speakers throughout your home, you can enjoy radiant sound, while seamlessly switching between them. Don’t have a Bluetooth device? It’s not s a problem: the HiddenRadio has a 3.5mm audio input plug that allows you to plug-in any device without Bluetooth functionality. We’ve also added a great built in AM/FM radio.


The rechargeable batteries support a whopping 30+ hours of streaming music: easily enough for a weekend away or to get you through the busy workweek. We’ve tested it along side the leading products on the market and The HiddenRadio has excelled in both sound quality and volume power.

We’ve spent 4 years and over $50k of our own money perfecting the patented mechanism. As the end result, The HiddenRadio holds the most powerful and clear sound within the purest, sleekest, compact form.

We have a great factory already set up and we are almost ready to start production; we just need your help to get there. If we can pre-sell just 1000 units we can make it happen!


On top of the $50k in development we’ve spent ourselves, we still need:

- $62k, Injection molding tools
- $30k, Global Bluetooth certifications
- $33k, First production run


The HiddenRadio is a clear simple answer to both classic, unobtrusive home decor and complete clear sound quality. We can’t wait to share this great project with you. With your support, when you see the HiddenRadio on the shelf of a retail store you will have the satisfaction of knowing YOU helped make it happen.

Here’s what the press has been saying: 

“John Van Den Nieuwenhuizen’s radio concept is unassuming and inviting; it truly looks like something that is good to touch.”

“The HiddenRadio, a quiet little concept with some poetic ergonomics”

“The simplest gadget ever?...Makes the iPod look like a busy piece of design.”

“Every now and then there’s a beautifully simple design that is so intuitive it beggars belief as to why no-one else had thought of it.”

“Meant to go against the grain where most devices these days come with more buttons than a nuclear arsenal control panel”

“Absurdly clever.”


Q/ How long will the batteries last?
A/ The rechargeable batteries last over 30 hours.

Q/ How will I know it will support my phone, tablet or computer?
A/ Bluetooth is a global standard designed to work on any device.

Q/ How loud is the sound?
A/ We’ve tested it over 80dB, basically it will easily fill the space of a large apartment.

Q/ Is shipping included?
A/ We are offering free global shipping only for Kickstarter backers!

Q/ When will you start to manufacture?
A/ Once we get to 1000 units we’ll begin production immediately. I hope you can help us bring this great product to market.
