      news.movim.eu / Numerama · Tuesday, 2 April - 08:37

    [Deal du Jour] L’iPhone 14 n'est pas le dernier smartphone d'Apple, mais reste un excellent modèle premium. Son prix de vente élevé à sa sortie n'en faisait pas un smartphone forcément recommandable. Il est aujourd'hui bien plus intéressant en promotion.

      Apple’s first new 3D Vision Pro video since launch is only a few minutes long

      news.movim.eu / ArsTechnica · Thursday, 28 March - 22:17

    Tonight, Apple will debut some new Immersive Video content for the Vision Pro headset—the first sports content for the device. It doesn't seem like much after two months of no new content, though.

    Starting at 6 pm PT/9 pm ET, Vision Pro users will be able to watch a sports film captured for the platform's Immersive Video format. The video will be a series of highlights from last year's Major League Soccer (MLS) playoffs, and according to Six Colors , it will run just five minutes. It will be free for all Vision Pro users.

    On February 2, Apple released what appeared to be the first episodes of three Immersive Video series: Adventure , Prehistoric Planet , and Wildlife . Each debuted alongside the Vision Pro's launch with one episode labeled "Episode 1" of "Season 1."

      How Apple plans to update new iPhones without opening them

      news.movim.eu / ArsTechnica · Thursday, 28 March - 17:15 · 1 minute

    Unboxing a new gadget is always a fun experience, but it's usually marred somewhat by the setup process. Either your device has been in a box for months, or it's just now launching and ships in the box with pre-release software. Either way, the first thing you have to do is connect to Wi-Fi and wait several minutes for an OS update to download and install. The issue is so common that going through a lengthy download is an expected part of buying anything that connects to the Internet.

    But what if you could update the device while it's still in the box? That's the latest plan cooked up by Apple, which is close to rolling out a system that will let Apple Stores wirelessly update new iPhones while they're still in their boxes. The new system is called "Presto."

    French site iGeneration has the first picture of what this setup looks like. It starts with a clearly Apple-designed silver rack that holds iPhones and has a few lights on the front. The site (through translation) calls the device a "toaster," and yes, it looks like a toaster oven or food heating rack .

      Oregon governor signs nation’s first right-to-repair bill that bans parts pairing

      news.movim.eu / ArsTechnica · Wednesday, 27 March - 21:57

    Enlarge / Oregon's repair bill prohibits companies from implementing software locks that prohibit aftermarket or used parts from being installed in their devices.

    Oregon Governor Tina Kotek today signed the state's Right to Repair Act, which will push manufacturers to provide more repair options for their products than any other state so far.

    The law, like those passed in New York , California , and Minnesota , will require many manufacturers to provide the same parts, tools, and documentation to individuals and repair shops that they provide to their own repair teams.

    But Oregon's bill goes further , preventing companies from implementing schemes that require parts to be verified through encrypted software checks before they will function. Known as parts pairing or serialization, Oregon's bill, SB 1596 , is the first in the nation to target that practice. Oregon State Senator Janeen Sollman (D) and Representative Courtney Neron (D) sponsored and pushed the bill in the state senate and legislature.

      “MFA Fatigue” attack targets iPhone owners with endless password reset prompts

    Human weaknesses are a rich target for phishing attacks. Making humans click "Don't Allow" over and over again in a phone prompt that can't be skipped is an angle some iCloud attackers are taking—and likely having some success.

    Brian Krebs' at Krebs on Security detailed the attacks in a recent post , noting that "MFA Fatigue Attacks" are a known attack strategy . By repeatedly hitting a potential victim's device with multifactor authentication requests, the attack fills a device's screen with prompts that typically have yes/no options, often very close together. Apple's devices are just the latest rich target for this technique.

    Both the Kremlin-backed Fancy Bear advanced persistent threat group and a rag-tag bunch of teenagers known as Lapsus$ have been known to use the technique, also known as MFA prompt bombing , successfully.

    The Ars Technica guide to keyboards: Mechanical, membrane, and buckling springs

    Your keyboard is the thread that connects you to your computer. The way a keyboard feels—from the sensations of each key pressing down and resetting to the build of the board’s chassis—has a direct impact on your typing experience, affecting accuracy, speed, and fatigue.

    We’ve dug into the joys of quality keyboards and the thrills of customization at Ars Technica before. But what really makes one type of keyboard feel better than another? People say membrane keyboards feel mushy, but why ? And what about keyboards with cult-like followings? What makes decades-old IBM keyboards or expensive Topres so special?

    In this guide, we’ll look at how some of the most popular keyboard categories work and how their differences impact typing feel.
