How to back up your contacts on your iPhone and Mac

It goes without saying, but digital address books are great. You have instant access to all of your contacts, and your brother’s phone number is just a few keystrokes away. But just as you can misplace your real-world address book, you can just as easily lose your digital one if you aren’t careful. Read on, and we’ll show you a few ways to safeguard your precious contacts list.

Cloud syncing services: A primer

The easiest, most pain-free way to store your contacts is to use a cloud-based contacts management service. Most of the big-name email services—Google’s Gmail, Microsoft Outlook, Apple iCloud, and Yahoo Mail—offer some sort of contact manager. And since they’re fully integrated with your email, you don’t have to hop from service to service to find the person you’re looking for.

Instagram might soon let you switch between multiple accounts

For Instagram users with more than one account, life is about to get a lot easier.

Instagram confirmed that it has been testing a feature to allow switching between multiple accounts on its iOS app, according to TechCrunch. Instagram users first noticed this account-switching feature on Thursday. Back in November, Instagram tested this feature for Android users, but the company did not reveal how many iOS users were able to switch accounts or when account-switching would be made official to all users.

instagram app login

Instagram users who have this new account-switching feature enabled will find a “Add Account” option in the app’s settings. Once you add a second account, you’ll be able to switch to it quickly by selecting it from a new menu at the top of your profile page. Whenever you get a push notification, you’ll also be able to see from which Instagram account.

The Samsung Galaxy S2 lives on with CM13 nightly builds

samsung-galaxy-s2_aThe second smartphone on the path to Samsung’s global smartphone domination is the Galaxy S2 – or properly, the Samsung Galaxy S II. Released in April 2011, this is a veritable old geezer in smartphone terms, but it is still alive and breathing, thanks to these new CM13 nightly builds that have been developed especially for the Galaxy S2, or lovingly called the I9100. Nearly 5 years old now, the Galaxy S II’s last update was to Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean. But XDA developer “Lysergic Acid” has been committed to bringing custom ROMs to the I9100, as he was also the one who developed CM12 for the same device. Through his work, it seems that your old Galaxy S II will still be able to enjoy Marshmallow flavors, which can't be said for other old devices out there. These are unofficial nightlies, of course. CynogenMod is probably the easiest custom ROM to tweak for older devices, being based on the Android Open Source Project and very nearly keeping all of the stock programming in there. cyanogenmod Flashing CM13 nightlies to your Galaxy S II will be no easy feat, and even the developer has some strict instructions. First up, your Galaxy S II will need to have, at the very least, a custom recovery compatible with KitKat builds (which means CWM or TWRP). The developer also asks for users to make sure their software before this is as close to stock as possible. Check out the official XDA thread at the source link below. You can also find the download links there. Just make sure you follow the instructions to the hilt. Happy flashing! SOURCE: XDA

Modular cellphone kit can be used for IoT and wearables

You can assemble a rudimentary 2G cellphone at home with the RePhone Kit Create, which can also be used to make wearables and IoT devices. The kit from Seeed Studios ships with separate modules that can be pieced together to create a 2G phone with a 1.54-in. LCD screen. Icons on the display can be used to make phone calls or send text messages. There's more to RePhone than being a fun device. The kit also is a small development board to make wearable and IoT devices with cellular communication capabilities.

The $59 kit is now shipping, and comes with a small battery and modules for a SIM card -- that's how you connect to a carrier's network -- as well as speaker, GSM, NFC and Bluetooth Low Energy. It also ships with craft paper that can be the skin of the phone.

Navigating depth, difficulty and the Dark Zone in The Division’s Xbox One beta

The last few years haven't been entirely smooth sailing for Ubisoft, but The Division looks set to change all that.

I went into The Division's Xbox One closed beta with limited expectations. Memories of Watch Dog's "downgrade" and Assassin's Creed Unity's less-than-perfect launch condition are still fresh in my mind. Trusting video game marketing materials is something I've learned not to do.

Thankfully, Ubisoft opted to let some of us get our hands on The Division early, ahead of its March launch date. I was fully prepared to be disappointed, but I can say with confidence that the complete opposite occurred — Ubisoft just might have a blockbuster on their hands.










9 tips to help you fix OneDrive sync problems on Windows 10

When files stored on OneDrive aren't syncing on your Windows 10 PC, it's likely a problem with the desktop sync app, and in this guide, we'll help you fix the issue.

Although, Microsoft touts OneDrive as the best cloud storage experience in Windows 10 to store and sync your personal documents and settings across your devices, sometimes the desktop client sync app won't work as it should.

Since the cloud storage service has gone through some changes, reports from users about syncing related problems has been increasing. Users have been reporting issues uploading photos, the OneDrive desktop sync app on Windows 10 not connecting, sync problems after upgrading to Windows 10 from Windows 8.1, and then just simply not being able to sync files between devices.

While the company proactively continues to work to improve its cloud storage service with every new update that rolls out, in this Windows 10 guide, we'll walk you through the suggested Microsoft solutions to help you fix OneDrive sync problems.










Microsoft and GoPro strike patent licensing deal

Microsoft has signed a patent licensing agreement with action camera company GoPro, the tech giant announced. According to Microsoft, the licensing agreement covers "certain file storage and other system technologies." From Microsoft:

"This agreement with GoPro shows the incredible breadth of technology sharing enabled through patent transactions," said Nick Psyhogeos, president of Microsoft Technology Licensing. "Microsoft's licensing of personal wearable technologies is seeing strong demand as we partner with companies from all industries to optimize solutions for their customers around the globe."

GoPro is just the latest in a long line of companies to strike up patent licensing deals with Microsoft. As is typically the case, the terms of the deal were not disclosed, presumably for competitive reasons.

Now that A.I. has mastered ‘Go,’ are all our jobs next?

There was once a time when no one thought computers could master chess; then, in 1997, IBM's Deep Blue beat chess champion Garry Kasparov. The bar then moved to the ancient Chinese game of Go -- until Europe's reigning human champion fell to Google's AlphaGo system late last year.

One by one, artificial intelligence has overcome the obstacles set before it. Is this all part of an inevitable trend leading to humanity's obsolescence -- or, at least, unemployment?

Apple comments on ‘Error 53’ failed security checks on iPhone

iPhones that have been repaired by third parties have been experiencing an "Error 53" post-iOS 9 update that has rendered some of the devices unusable.

This has led to a ton of online speculation — and condemnation — today. When contacted for comment, Apple provided the following explanation to iMore:

"We take customer security very seriously and Error 53 is the result of security checks designed to protect our customers," an Apple spokesperson told iMore. "iOS checks that the Touch ID sensor in your iPhone or iPad correctly matches your device's other components. If iOS finds a mismatch, the check fails and Touch ID, including for Apple Pay use, is disabled. This security measure is necessary to protect your device and prevent a fraudulent Touch ID sensor from being used. If a customer encounters Error 53, we encourage them to contact Apple Support."

Some of this isn't new. Back when the iPhone 5s introduced Touch ID for the first time, former iMore editor Ally Kazmucha discovered there was hardware based security for the parts. That way, if someone took possession of your iPhone they couldn't bypass the encryption and get at your data. In other words, to protect us from both big and little brother.

What is new is the iOS 9 update causing "error 53" which, in defense of those who've received it, is completely opaque. As the old saying goes, security is at constant war with convenience, and it looks like some new check put in place as part of iOS 9 generates that error when it can't verify that hardware security is still intact.

If this happens following an Apple or Apple-certified repair, it's not a problem. They can swap out the device for one that works, you can restore from backup, and everything is fine. With third-party repairs, not so much.

There are some complaints that about repairs not involving Touch ID that also cause the problem, though it's tough to rule out accidental damage. If true, though, it's possible Apple may need to fix the process so only the security system, and the security system alone, can trigger an error. And, of course, provide a more human-understandable error.

Some have asked for an override that would let an owner opt-out of the security check. Unfortunately, once a "back door" exists, it exists for everyone. It's one of those things where security and usability perspectives clash, and why "fail safe" and "fail secure" are two very different things.

If you've been affected by "error 53" let us know in the comments!










As noncompete agreement use expands, backlash grows

Noncompete agreements are becoming boilerplate in employment contracts, and for employees, there's nothing good about them. They create enormous uncertainty about future job options and worry about launching a new business. Their use is spurring legislative fights in leading tech-industry states. Employers see noncompete agreements as a "low-cost measure to bind their workforce," said Massachusetts State Rep. Lori Ehrlich (D-Essex), in an interview. She has been trying to get noncompetes banned in that state for years.

The use of noncompete agreements may be increasingly common.

Apple relaxing its iPhone trade-in rules to accept phones with cracked screens

If you’ve ever cracked your iPhone screen, broken its camera, or damaged its buttons, you know that Apple doesn’t accept those banged-up devices as part of its iPhone trade-in program, which gives you credit to use toward the purchase of a new iPhone. But the company is reportedly softening its stance and will soon start accepting trade-ins of broken iPhone 5s, 6, and 6 Plus units.

So what’s with Apple’s change of heart? According to 9to5Mac, if people can trade in their cracked iPhones for upgraded models, they’ll be less likely to settle for repairs, which run between $109 and $149 without AppleCare+. Apple will likely peg trade-in values for damaged models at $50 for a 5s, $200 for a 6, and $250 for a 6 Plus, 9to5Mac reported. You might be able to get more by selling your phone on eBay, but Apple’s trade-in program is risk-free and requires minimal effort.

Remember the Milk rebuilds, creates new apps for different platforms

tumblr_inline_o1yk28NDED1qahamr_1280

Remember the Milk was one of the most acclaimed productivity apps when it first came out 9 years ago. But somehow since then, a lot of other to-do list apps came out, some more advanced and more feature-packed than it, and so it became one of those classic but not preferred apps. Now, they are trying to make a comeback by rebuilding it from the ground up and by adding several new apps on various platforms, including Android smartphones and tablets.

While the old version is of course already highly functional, so much has already evolved in terms of productivity and in the way we use apps that they eventually became outdated. But now the brand new app brings a lot of things that makes Remember the Milk at par and maybe even better than the other apps of its kind. You can now add subtasks because as we all know, each task has a lot of other mini tasks that you need to do in order to cross it off our list. You can also now re-order your tasks just by dragging and dropping them in the order you want to do them.

You can also now make your lists more organized and colorful by tagging tasks by the color system you created for yourself. And if your task list involves other people, you can now easily share it with others and assign certain tasks to them, as long as they use the app too. You can also enable reminders for each of the tasks so you can never forget any of them. In case you need to work on making or updating tasks but you don’t have Internet, you can now work offline.

You can now update your Remember the Milk app and enjoy all the other new things that they have made for you. And if you don’t have it yet, you can download it for free. The Pro version of course has a lot of other features, but they will be increasing the price now to $39.99 per year.
