China Confirms OPM Hack, Says Criminal in Origin

China has admitted for the first time that a massive hacking attack on U.S. government databases was carried out by Chinese hackers, but denies it was a state-backed operation. Chinese state media say the incident was among several others discussed during high-level cyber security talks in Washington this week. The revelation was mentioned almost in passing in a Xinhua state media report this week on the talks. The report did not provide any other details about the hackers or if they have been arrested. “Through investigation, the case turned out to be a criminal case rather than a state-sponsored cyber attack as the U.S. side has previously suspected,” the report says. Hackers arrested According to a report in The Washington Post Tuesday, China says a handful of hackers were arrested in connection with the case, shortly before President Xi Jinping visited Washington in September. The identities of those arrested and whether they are connected to the Chinese government remains unclear, the report adds. The hacking attack on the Office of Personnel Management’s computer systems led to a massive breach of the personal information of nearly 22 million current and former U.S. federal employees, job applicants and their families. U.S. officials […]

Rumors about a Meizu MX5 Pro have been officially shot down by the company’s VP, Li Nan. Instead, Meizu is working on a new handset that has been given the code-name Meizu NIUX. Yesterday, we told you plenty about the phone, including the Exynos 7420 chipset that reportedly will be driving the device.

Some of the specs on the Meizu NIUX have been confirmed by Meizu’s president and co-founder, Bai Yongxiang. The executive says that the NIUX will come …

Video of Apple’s iPhone 6s website confirms specs and color options

Images showing information about the Apple iPhone 6s that will apparently appear on Apple’s website, have been leaked on video. “Stronger than ever” is the very Apple-esque tagline revealing the Series 7000 aluminum that the Apple iPhone 6s (and Apple iPhone 6s Plus) will both be made from. This material is used on the Apple Watch and by aerospace manufacturers. Bendgate? Not this year, says Apple.

The video also confirms that the iPhone 6s will be 7.1mm thick, .2mm thicker than the Apple iPhone 6. This is probably due to the extra technology stuffed inside for Force Touch. The website also …

Staples ad confirms Apple iPhone 6s name…or does it?

There really wasn’t much doubt that the two new iPhones getting unveiled this Wednesday would be named the Apple iPhone 6s and Apple iPhone 6s Plus. But just in case you had a very tiny thought in the back of your mind that Apple would cave in to 6S Marketing’s request, a poorly timed newspaper ad from Staples seals the deal. Or does it?

In the office supply store’s Sunday circular (you know, the ads that make your Sunday paper triple the regular size), is an ad for the Verizon Apple iPhone 6/6s. The ad reveals that Big Red will give buyers of either iPhone model $100 in instant credit, …

Spigen teaser confirms new Rose Gold color option for the Apple iPhone 6s and Apple iPhone 6s Plus

Case manufacturer Spigen confirmed that the Apple iPhone 6s and Apple iPhone 6s Plus will both be offered in Rose Gold. The company released a teaser showing a new Rose Gold colored case for both new iPhone models. The copy on the teaser reads, “A New Color Has Bloomed (itallics added) for iPhone 6s/6s Plus.” The color was originally used on some of the high-end Apple Watch Edition timepieces.

Leaked iPhone 6s packaging slip confirms name, and a 16 GB base model again

There will be many hardware upgrades with the upcoming iPhone 6s and 6s Plus handsets, but storage won’t be one of them, it seems. After spilled schematics confirmed that the iPhone 6s will still come in 16 GB, 64 GB and 128 GB versions, now a leaked iPhone 6s packaging comes to tell us the same story. 

A thing of equal importance, the packaging seems to confirm the “iPhone 6s” naming scheme, which jibes with Apple’s usual bi-annual upgrade cycle philosophy. Moreover, this titling got corroborated earlier today, when an alleged iPhone 6s Plus box …

Well folks, August is almost out the door and we can just barely smell all the brand-new tech that is about to be introduced to us in the beginning of September – first, at the IFA 2015 superconference, then – at the Apple event, which should, as tradition dictates, give us a very first glimpse at the newest iPhone reiteration.
