How To Filter The Social Web On Your MobileIn this fifth and final installment of our How To Filter The Social Web series, I’m looking at a mobile service called Prismatic. It’s a slick looking website and iPhone app that filters social news for you. Filtering news on mobile has traditionally been a tough nut to crack – and there’s no shortage of startups that have attempted it. Feedly, My6sense, Pulse and Reeder have been some of our favorites in recent times. Unlike three of those apps, Prismatic is not available as an Android app (although that is apparently coming)…

The privacy freakout sparked by hacker group AntiSec’s leak of Apple user identification numbers last week turned out to be unwarranted. But the Anonymous offshoot taught us some things about the culture of paranoia that has become a feature of our digital lives.
The group claimed that it had pilfered millions of iPhone/iPad user IDs from an FBI laptop. As it turns out, the database came from a digital publishing and development firm called BlueToad. The company ran tests internally based on a tip from an outside security researcher and confirmed that the data did indeed come from its own servers…

360iDev: Lessons learned from four years on the App Store

Andreas Linde is the developer of an app called WorldView+, which is designed to let you view webcams from around the world on your iOS device (we took a look at the app here). He released the app on Apple’s App Store over four years ago now, and this week at 360iDev in Denver, he went through some lessons that he’d picked up working on Apple’s platform.

A lot of what Linde has learned echo what we’ve heard before from other developers: Polish and stability are extremely important when you’re creating iPhone apps, because if a customer can’t use the app for what it’s designed for, it’s just not going to be successful…

David Schuetz cracked the case of stolen iPhone UDIDs

Earlier this week, Blue Toad publishing confirmed that it, and not the FBI, was the source of 1 million UDIDs leaked by hacker group AntiSec. The company was tipped off by mobile security expert David Schuetz of Intrepidus Group, who spent days poring through the data and discovered references to Blue Toad and its employees.

It’s an impressive piece of work by Scheutz, who details how he discovered the Blue Toad link in a lengthy blog post on Intrepidus Group’s website. His story is well worth the read when you have a few minutes to spare…

Samsung reportedly working on new anti-Apple TV ad

Samsung may have lost the first round of its US legal battle with Apple, but that loss is not holding the company back from attacking Apple with its marketing dollars. According to a report from The Verge, the Korean manufacturer is working on another advertisement that makes fun of Apple fans waiting in line for their next device.

Previous commercials showed a Samsung Galaxy S II owner walking by Apple fans who are waiting for the next iPhone. The Samsung owner flashes his phone at the line-waiters, who are focused on blogs reports about the new iPhone…

Shimi smart musical robot comes to the iPhoneYou may recall back in June, we first talked about the Android-powered Shimi dancing robot speaker dock. The speaker dock was aimed at Android smartphone users and would dance and tap its little robotic foot to the tunes you playback from your smartphone. Inside the robot’s head is a pair of speakers.

Shimi turned up this week on Kickstarter seeking funding for a new iPhone version of the little dancing speaker dock. The project will fund on October 10, assuming it meets its fundraising goal…
