Apple has confirmed that its developer center website was hacked. Its developer center website was down for the past couple of days and earlier, a notice said that it was undergoing maintenance. However, the extended downtime led many to suspect that there had been some sort of a security breach, and this was confirmed by Apple earlier.

“The website that was breached is not associated with any customer information,” Neumayr said. “Additionally, customer information is securely encrypted.”

Although, Apple said that the website affected was not associated with any sensitive customer information, it did not rule out the possibility that developers’ names, mailing addresses and email addresses could have been compromised.

To prevent such an occurrence from happening again, Apple is overhauling its developer systems, updating its server software and rebuilding its entire database.

A new iPad 5 photo leak out again. An article publish at Digitimes saying that Volume production of the fifth-generation 9.7-inch iPad will kick off in July-August 2013, according to sources with Taiwan-based supply chain makers. Yield rates for key components, especially touch panels, will be a major concern for smooth production.

The new iPad’s display is expected to be supplied by LG Display and Sharp, while the touch panel assembly will be conducted by TPK and the ITO thin film supplied by Nitto Denko and Teijin, the sources added.

Obtined by 9to5Mac from a accessories maker in China, the photo above showing the rear-panel of Apple next generation 9.7-inch iPad with a similar look and feel to Apple’s recently released iPad mini. The panel is all black, with an iridescent black apple in its center, and looks to be almost as thin as its pint-sized counterpart.

Apple-Waze

It’s no secret that Apple messed up big time with their own Maps app. Recently and most seriously, their app was found to have led Australian drivers into the wilderness. As a result, Australian police have warned drivers against using Apple Maps for navigation purpose. Left with no choice, Apple publicly apologized for the quality of the app and vowed to do better.

For some time now, Apple has been rumored to be interested in acquiring Foursquare. However, the problem with Foursquare is that it sees limited use outside of the U.S. Furthermore, there’s not much to be gained with Foursquare. What good are “check-in” locations?

tech.david-cheong.com

With that in mind, perhaps it is not surprising that Apple is turning to Israeli developers Waze and their social GPS app. Waze has been steadily gaining popularity throughout the world thanks to its unique functionality and blend of traditional GPS mapping and social media elements. And because Waze’s maps are built based on drivers’ locations, it is far more useful than just “check-ins”. It is also the exact kind of data that Apple needs to refine its app.

According to rumors, Apple is presently offering Waze US$400 million and a further US$100 million in incentives. Waze, however, is holding out for US$750 million.

Vimeo has launched an update to its iPhone app, and this is much more than just an update. In fact, you could say that the Vimeo iPhone app has been re-imagined from top to bottom, creating what amounts to a brand new app. If you’ve found previous versions of Vimeo confusing and cluttered, the new version has finally gone for the traditional tabbed interface we’ve come to know and love, thus creating a browsing experience that should be much more intuitive.

Aside from interface, the new app can still do everything the old Vimeo could – you can shoot videos or upload videos from your camera reel, browse other videos, comment, like, etc. The new app adds better sharing integration, with easy sharing on Facebook, Twitter, email, iMessage, or via a link. You can also set automatic sharing for every video you upload, and continue watching other videos while your video is uploading.

The new tabbed interface includes the new Feed option, the Explore tab, and your Watch Later queue, which you can also manage as you wish. While the new version of the app claims to be available for both iPhone and iPad, the new interface is notably missing from the iPad, which, upon downloading the new app, still features the old, somewhat cluttered Vimeo interface.

You can download the new Vimeo for iPhone from the App Store. Please do share you thinking after the use.

A US judge on Wednesday was considering a request by Apple that would pull Google from the sidelines in a long-running patent war with Samsung over mobile gadgets powered by Android software.

 

Apple urged a federal court in Silicon Valley to add Android 4.1, referred to by Google as Jelly Bean, and the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet to a patent suit on track for trial next year, according to reports.

 

The judge took the request under consideration.

 

Meanwhile, Samsung has countered with a legal move that says Apple’s iPhone 5 infringes on patents held by the South Korean electronics giant.

 

Samsung and Apple have been waging patent wars in an array of countries in an indirect assault on Google’s Android software.

 

In a separate case, a jury in August declared that Samsung should pay Apple $1.049 billion in damages for illegally copying iPhone and iPad features.

 

Samsung has appealed to a higher court to reverse the jury verdict.
