I know a lot of people who text while driving. In fact I used to be guilty of doing that a few times in the past. But life is too short and not worth such risk. Texting can wait.
A university student was killed in a car crash early this month on the outskirts of Greeley, Colorado. When police officer retrieved his iPhone in the car, they found a partial message that was never send. It appears that he was texting while driving. That was his last message.
The student’s parents has agreed to release the image of the text he was composing in a bid to warn other drivers against doing the same.
Remember, texting can wait. Get someone to text on your behalf or wait till you reached your destination.
You will be prompted to change your password the next time you login to your Evernote. The company issued a service wide password reset after discovering a coordinated attempt to access secure areas of the Evernote Service.
According to the Evernote blog post, Hackers gained access to user information which includes username, email address associated with the Evernote account and encrypted passwords.
There is no need to panic because all the passwords were hashed and salted. None of the content stored in Evernote were accessed, changed or lost. Payment information for Evernote Premium and Evernote Business are also safe.
You should know the drills by now. If you have another service using the same password, you should also change them too. Just to be safe….
More than 250,000 Twitter users will be prompted to reset their Twitter password the next time they access Twitter. This is because Twitter detected a hacking attack on these account.
Hackers might have access to some Twitter users’ username, email address and encrypted/salted version of your password (not the actual letters and numbers in the password).
According to Twitter Director of Information Security, Bob Lord, the attack is not the work of amateurs hackers. It is extremely sophisticated and similar to recent attacks on other companies and organizations.
This is a good time for you to change your Twitter Password. If you reuse your password across several websites, it would be advisable to change them too.
If you schedule your iOS Do Not Disturb feature to turn off at a certain timing, you might nothing that it isn’t working anymore after 1 January 2013.
According to Apple, the Do Not Disturb scheduling feature will resume normal functionality after 7 January 2013. For now, you should manually turn the Do Not Disturb feature on or off. Apple won’t be releasing any fix for this.
I have no idea how did this feature break down. 2013 is not a special year like year 2000. It’s just weird. And this is not the first time iOS devices having issue after 1 January. If you recall, iPhone had an alarm glitch on the first 2 days of 2011. Luckily for me, I don’t use the Do Not Disturb scheduling feature. In fact, I don’t even use the Do Not Disturb feature. I usually just silence my phone when I need to have some peace.
You might want to take note of this bug if you are using the Do Not Disturb scheduling feature.
There is a spam app going around Facebook now. If you receive notification on Facebook saying your friend has shared 3 pics with you on WhatsApp, do not click on it. It is a spam app. The app will send the same notification to all your friends without your consent.
If you have already clicked on it, just remove the application from your Facebook account by following the instructions here. This should also remove all the notification that the app send to your friends. Let’s hope Facebook remove the app soon.
PS: I’m embarrassed to admit that I fell for that. But in my defense, the app said that a pretty female friend of mine wants to send me 3 pics. How can I reject it? Haha.
