Apple iPhones allow extraction of deep personal data, researcher finds
The exploded view of the home button which doubles as a fingerprint sensor is seen on an image of the new iPhone 5S at Apple Inc's media event in CupertinoBy Joseph Menn SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Personal data including text messages, contact lists and photos can be extracted from iPhones through previously unpublicized techniques by Apple Inc employees, the company acknowledged this week. The same techniques to circumvent backup encryption could be used by law enforcement or others with access to the "trusted" computers to which the devices have been connected, according to the security expert who prompted Apple's admission. In a conference presentation this week, researcher Jonathan Zdziarski showed how the services take a surprising amount of data for what Apple now says are diagnostic services meant to help engineers. As word spread about Zdziarski’s initial presentation at the Hackers on Planet Earth conference, some cited it as evidence of Apple collaboration with the National Security Agency.
Facebook says SEC's IPO probe ends, extending WhatsApp closing date
Woman holds a tablet displaying WhatsApp's logo in front of the screen with the Facebook logo in this photo illustration taken in Prague(Reuters) - Facebook Inc said the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission dropped its probe into the social networking company over events surrounding its controversial initial public offering. In its quarterly report filed on Thursday, Facebook said the regulator in May "notified us that it had terminated its inquiry and that no enforcement action had been recommended by the SEC." Facebook shares began trading on May 18, 2012, but soon fell below their $38 per share offering price and had lost more than half their value by the middle of August, angering investors. Investors also complained they were not told just prior to the IPO that analysts at Facebook's investment banks were cutting their forecasts after learning of the company's internal projections for advertising revenue. The end of the SEC probe does not affect shareholder litigation against Facebook, Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg and many banks over the Menlo Park, California-based company's IPO.
Dell, BlackBerry downplay threat from Apple-IBM alliance
Visitors walk past the IBM booth at the 9th China International Software Product & Information Service Expo in NanjingBy Euan Rocha and Alastair Sharp TORONTO (Reuters) - IBM Corp's recent move to partner with Apple Inc to sell iPhones and iPads loaded with corporate applications has excited investors in both companies, but two rivals say they are unperturbed for now. Top executives at Dell and BlackBerry Ltd scoffed at the threat posed by the alliance this week, arguing the tie-up is unlikely to derail the efforts of their own companies to re-invent themselves. I think it just made a good press release," John Swainson, who heads Dell's global software business, said in an interview with Reuters in Toronto on Thursday. PC maker Dell and smartphone maker BlackBerry are in the midst of reshaping their companies around software and services, as the needs of their big corporate clients morph.
Europe debates how far to push 'right to be forgotten'
A Google search page is seen through a magnifying glass in this photo illustration taken in BrusselsBy Leila Abboud and Julia Fioretti PARIS/BRUSSELS (Reuters) - European regulators have not yet decided whether to try to force search engines such as Google and Microsoft's Bing to scrub results globally when people invoke their "right to be forgotten" in the region. Isabelle Falque-Pierrotin - who heads France's privacy watchdog and the WP29 group of EU national data protection authorities - said in an interview on Friday that no consensus had yet been reached on what she called a "complicated issue". The European Union's top court ruled in May that search engines must take down certain results shown under a search of a person's name if the information was "inadequate, irrelevant or no longer relevant". Although the "right to be forgotten" existed as a concept in European law, the ruling marked the first time companies like Google have been asked to field such requests from the public.

'Batkid Begins' is the origin story of San Francisco's smallest superhero
'Batkid Begins' is the origin story of San Francisco's smallest superheroThe city of San Francisco — and most of Twitter — stopped and watched last November, as five-year-old Miles Scott became pint-sized superhero Batkid. Miles, who has leukemia, was given the chance to dress up as his favorite comic icon by the Make-A-Wish Foundation. His day was made even more remarkable by the reaction from the city he wanted to save, as thousands of people turned out to watch the tiny crusader catch cartoon criminals around San Francisco. The feature-length documentary, created by filmmaker Dana Nachman, was teased at Comic-Con with a three-minute trailer that later appeared online courtesy of Deadline.

The Verge Playlist: Weather the storm
The Verge Playlist: Weather the stormHere in the Northeastern United States, we're in the thick of a hot, sticky summer, and with it, privy to theatrical summer thunderstorms almost every day. I love thunderstorms in the summer — there's just nothing like when the sky turns pitch black in the middle of the day and the clouds unleash their fury on the land below. There's a specific soundtrack that goes oh so perfectly with these storms: moody, atmospheric metal that builds from quiet nothing into crashing crescendos and soaring guitars. ...

Watch the explosive first trailer for 'Mad Max: Fury Road'
Watch the explosive first trailer for 'Mad Max: Fury Road'One of the biggest movies of next year will without a doubt be the return of Mad Max in Fury Road, and the film already started to wow audiences yesterday at Warner Bros.' big Comic-Con presentation. It's an explosive look at the film in all the right ways, and it shows that series director George Miller, who's back on board for Fury Road, still knows exactly what fans want to see out of its apocalyptic world. The film, which Miller calls "almost a continuous chase," extends the story of the first Mad Max film, but it's not necessarily within the canon of the rest of the series. The character is different to some degree." Hardy's Max will be joined by Charlize Theron, playing a warrior known as Furiosa.
