Internet Explorer and Safari first to fall at Pwn2Own 2011, Chrome and Firefox still standing

Pwn2Own, the annual three-day browser hackathon, has already claimed its first two victims: IE8 on Windows 7 64-bit, and Safari 5 on Mac OS X. Google Chrome looks set to survive for its third year in a row. Internet Explorer 8 was thoroughly destroyed by independent researcher Stephen Fewer. "He used three vulnerabilities to bypass ASLR and DEP, but also escape Protected Mode. That's...

iOS 4.3: everything you need to know

iOS 4.3, Apple's latest revision to its iDevice-OS, for the GSM iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, has just been made available through iTunes to coincide with the launch of the iPad 2 later this week. To update your iDevice, simply connect it to your computer, fire up iTunes, and hit 'Check for update.' There's a lot of new features in iOS 4.3, from Personal Hotspot and AirPlay, to improved...

iTunes to add unlimited downloads for purchased music, MobileMe going free?

When headlines began cropping up about unlimited iTunes music downloads, we'll admit it raised a few eyebrows in the DS bunker. As it turns out, though, the "unlimited" isn't about an all-you-can-download music buffet, or even the Lala-powered iTunes streaming service you might be waiting for. No, it's about being able to re-download songs you've already purchased through iTunes with less hassle....

iOS 4.3 jailbreak with PwnageTool

Mere hours after the release of the iOS 4.3 golden master to developers, Redmond Pie has compiled a guide to jailbreak the new version with a combination of PwnageTool and Universal Ramdisk Fixer. It's definitely not a one-click jailbreak, however, and it's still tethered at this stage -- you'll have to re-jailbreak every time you reboot -- but it's a promising indicator that a proper...

Apple makes iOS 4.3 golden master available to developers

The iOS 4.3 golden master (GM), as well as the Xcode and iOS SDK 4.3 GM are now available to download from Apple's Dev Center. The golden master, usually referred to as GM, is the last step before a new iOS version actually gets released to the whole world. Of course, this time we already know when that will happen -- next Friday, on March 11. We found out as much during yesterday's iPad 2...

Opera is the first non-Safari browser and BitTorrent client in the Mac App Store

Opera made waves when it successfully launched its Opera Mini browser for the iPhone. Now company has made its way into Apple's Mac App Store, which makes Opera 11.01 the first Web browser in the Mac App Store that isn't built around Safari's Webkit core. Its description in the store is fairly tame, trumpeting Opera's speed and security along with gesture support and its trademark speed dial...

iMovie app heading to iPad on March 11th with universal update

Last night at Apple's March 2nd iPad 2 unveiling, the Cupertino-based company showed off an iPad-optimized version of iMovie. Ever since the introduction of the iPhone 4, iMovie has been available for said device, now the app will be going universal, supporting both the iPad and the iPhone. Apple's added a few things into the mix for the larger screen too. A precision track editor was shown...

iTunes 10.2 now available for download

Apple released the latest version of iTunes, iTunes 10.2, today, and it's now available for download. iTunes 10.2 introduces support for the iPad 2 (due out March 11) and is required for syncing devices running the new iOS 4.3 (also due out on the 11th). iTunes 10.2 also features improvements to Home Sharing, including support for streaming media to iOS 4.3 devices using Home Sharing....

iPad 2 brings release of iOS 4.3, with FaceTime and Photo Booth

The iPad 2 launches on March 11th, with a new dual-core A5 processor and HDMI Out capability, but what about the software? Apple announced that the iPad currently has 65,000 apps (compared to 100 for Android Honeycomb tablets), and that the iPad 2 will run the new iOS 4.3. iOS 4.3 features performance improvements in Safari, thanks to the addition of the Nitro JavaScript engine. It also brings...

Mac OS X Lion to include updated version of Safari with WebKit2

After originally reporting on the introduction of WebKit2 back in April 2010, it looks like it will finally be rolled out with OS X Lion, in a new version of the Safari Web browser. WebKit2, rather than being a whole new rendering engine, is a layer around WebKit that adds more stability, security and speed -- not entirely unlike the Google Chrome sandbox, which is also strapped onto a version...

Mac OS X Lion: the multi-touch offspring of Windows 7 and iOS

Yesterday, Apple released the developer preview of Mac OS X Lion, the first major update to OS X since August 2009. Two major things have uprooted the computing world since then: the launch of Windows 7 in October 2009, and the iPad in 2010. It's no surprise, then, that OS X Lion looks like the lovechild of Windows 7 and iOS. White box-thumping purists will claim, somehow, that this is...

Apple releases Mac OS X Lion developer preview via the Mac App Store

Apple's on a charge today and has just released the Mac OS X Lion developer preview via the Mac App Store. The good news is it's full of fancy new features, including Launchpad, an app launcher that displays all of your Mac apps in one easy to use screen; Mission Control, a unification of Expose, Dashboard, Spaces, and full screen apps; and some new multi-touch gestures. The bad news is that...

FaceTime hits the Mac App Store for 99c

Apple has just released FaceTime for OS X onto the Mac App Store. The app will take advantage of the 'built-in FaceTime HD camera' or any other iSight-equipped Intel Mac, to bring you Mac-to-Mac and Mac-to-iPhone 4 (or latest generation iPod touch) video calling over Wi-Fi. It supports up to 720p video for those soon to be released Macs sporting fancy new FaceTime HD cameras, or standard VGA...

Final Cut Pro 8 could arrive from Apple this Spring

Apple's Steve Jobs has said in recent emails that Final Cut Pro, Apple's venerable video editing app, will be getting an "awesome" update for which we should all "buckle up," but that update could be coming sooner than we thought. Sources have told TechCrunch that Apple is now in the final stages of "the biggest overhaul to Final Cut Pro since the original version was created over 10 years...

Mac OS X 10.7 Lion to ship with cloud-based FileVault?

As the release of Mac OS X 10.7 Lion gets closer and closer, rumors are starting to appear about what functionality Apple will add to the new version of its operating system. Today's rumor is based on an Apple patent, and it involves secure online storage. Apple has been rumored to go all in with cloud services for many years, yet for some reason Mobile Me is all we've got so far. But if...
