Wireless World Of Ramsey

"For All Your Wireless Needs"

Welcome to my website

  Located at 88 East Main Street, in lovely downtown Ramsey, New Jersey is an authorized Dealer for AT&T Wireless Services. They have been in the wireless business since 1999; but their cumulative wireless experience totals over 40 years. This type of experience can only benefit their customer base. Since day # 1, the owner and staff have tried to steer clear of the stereotypical wireless dealership mentality. It has been their goal to be more of a consultant; than a salesperson. They treat “word of mouth” or “referral” business as their driving force.

Apple’s new MacBook Air ad shows off a ton of stickers that can be used to give your, in some cases well-loved, Mac some custom, cartoon, cultural, or just plain crazy flare. So, if you see one that catches your attention, that you think would look simply smashing on the back of your MacBook Air, where can you get it? TUAW has put together a list.

Not every sticker Apple shown is actually available for purchase… anywhere. Others are clearly inspired by decals you can buy, but they’re not exactly the same. Apple definitely fabricated some of these specifically for the ad itself, but others are available for you to buy right this minute.

I’ve listed all of them, and noted their status. If there is a sticker similar to the one shown in the commercial, I’ve linked it. If not, I’ve linked an alternative for most that has a similar theme. Enjoy.

Check ‘ em out, and if you have have a favorite — in the ad or elsewhere — let me know what it is and where you can get it!

Earlier this week Apple reaffirmed to iMore that it had never worked with any government agency to create a backdoor in any product or service. That was in answer to questions raised by Jonathan Zdziarski concerning iOS privacy and security. Apple has now published a new support page titled iOS: About diagnostic capabilities which elaborates on the services Zdziarski called out as data leaks. It does not, however, address vulnerabilities in passcode, pairing keys, or trusted device, though Apple typically does not address those types of things until they’ve pushed out patches. Here’s Apple’s full support article on the services:

iOS offers the following diagnostic capabilities to help enterprise IT departments, developers, and AppleCare troubleshoot issues.

Each of these diagnostic capabilities requires the user to have unlocked their device and agreed to trust another computer. Any data transmitted between the iOS device and trusted computer is encrypted with keys not shared with Apple. For users who have enabled iTunes Wi-Fi Sync on a trusted computer, these services may also be accessed wirelessly by that computer.

1. com.apple.mobile.pcapd

pcapd supports diagnostic packet capture from an iOS device to a trusted computer. This is useful for troubleshooting and diagnosing issues with apps on the device as well as enterprise VPN connections. You can find more information at developer.apple.com/library/ios/qa/qa1176.

2. com.apple.mobile.file_relay

file_relay supports limited copying of diagnostic data from a device. This service is separate from user-generated backups, does not have access to all data on the device, and respects iOS Data Protection. Apple engineering uses file_relay on internal devices to qualify customer configurations. AppleCare, with user consent, can also use this tool to gather relevant diagnostic data from users’ devices.

3. com.apple.mobile.house_arrest

house_arrest is used by iTunes to transfer documents to and from an iOS device for apps that support this functionality. This is also used by Xcode to assist in the transfer of test data to a device while an app is in development.

When Chinese TV called iOS a location tracker, Apple responded on the consumer facing portion of their Chinese website, and in much more direct-to-customer terms. It’s interesting to see Apple address the specific services in Zdziarski claims, but to address them in a support document, and to address them in technical terms.

Apple is already increasing the security in iOS 8. Hopefully diagnostics, pairing records, and any other newly discovered vectors will have their security increased as well, and soon.

The insanely popular free-to-play card game, Hearthstone, has launched their first expansion today called the Curse of Naxxramas. Themed after the floating Necropolis of Warcraft lore, Curse of Naxxramas will have five wings, each unlocked separately every week for the following month.

Instead of the usual online players versus player battles, Curse of Naxxramas will challenge single players to defeat scores of undead and other grisly abominations for the chance to win one of 30 new, exclusive, legendary cards. Beat it, and you can have another go in the considerably tougher Heroic mode of the wing. In addition to the 15 bosses and their heroic counterparts, there are 9 class challenges available.

The first section, The Arachnid Quarter, will be available for free through the whole first month and will stay unlocked for anybody that gives it a try during the launch period. The subsequent wings (Plague Quarter, Military Quarter, Construct Quarter, and Frostwyrm Lair) will cost 700 gold each to unlock, or a quick $ 6.99 in-app purchase. You can grab all five for $ 24.99, or $ 19.99 if you manage to snag the Arachnid Quarter first.

For those unfamiliar, Hearthstone is a turn-based fantasy card game where players build decks based on their favorite World of Warcraft classes, such as Hunter, Warlock, Paladin, and Mage. Players earn gold coins for completing daily challenges, which can be spent on booster packs with additional cards. Duplicate or unwanted cards can be disenchanted into dust, which can then be used to craft specific cards. Multiple game types appeal to just about every challenge level. Hit up our Hearthstone review for a deep dive.

I’m pretty excited for a strong single-player mode, though there will still be an online requirement to play them. Blizzard is framing Naxxramas as a distinct new game type with its own menu item, so it’s safe to assume more will be on the way. Anyone Hearthstone players out there? How high up the ranks have you climbed?

When you connect your iPhone or iPad to iTunes on Mac or Windows, and choose to trust that computer, a pairing record is created that maintains that trust for future connections. There’s a report going around that claims that if someone takes physical possession of your device and your computer, they can steal those pairing records and use them to retrieve your personal information and/or enable remote logging. If they don’t have your computer, it’s also claimed they can try and generate a pairing record by tricking you into connecting to a compromised accessory (juice jacking), like a dock, and/or by using mobile device management (MDM) tools intended for enterprise to get around safeguards like Apple’s Trusted Device requestor. So, how can you protect yourself?

*Important note:** Security is at perpetual odds with convenience. This process will make your iPhone and iPad more secure but less convenient. It should only be used if a) even the potential for a privacy breach is untenable for you, and b) you really, absolutely can function without connecting your iPhone or iPad to other devices.

If someone has physical access to your devices, there are all sorts of things that can be done depending on their skill level, resources, and the value of your data to them. The information here is not meant to make anyone stressed or paranoid, simply to provide a specific option for a specific vulnerability in a vacuum.

Apple Configurator

Apple Configurator is a free tool from Apple meant to help schools, businesses, and institutions set up and manage large amounts of iPhones and iPads. With it, you can prevent your device from pairing with other computers or accessories, which prevents it generating pairing records, which prevents those records from being used to access your iPhone or iPad without your consent.

  • Free – Download now app, available for free from Apple on the Mac App Store.

How to use the Apple Configurator to secure your iPhone or iPad against unauthorized pairing

  1. Launch Apple Configurator
  2. Click on Prepare at the top
  3. Name the settings anything you like (e.g. Supervised Device)
  4. Click on Supervision to toggle it to on.
  5. Uncheck the box next to Allow devices to connect to other Macs
  6. Click on the + sign at the bottom
  7. Select Create New Profile from the popup
  8. Name the new profile anything you like (e.g. Pairing Profile)
  9. Click on Restrictions
  10. Click on Configure
  11. Scroll down to Allow pairing with non-Configurator hosts and uncheck its box.
  12. Click Save
  13. Check the box next to the new profile
  14. Click Prepare at the bottom
  15. Fill in the information you want displayed in the profile. (It doesn’t have to be accurate, you can use 555-555-5555 for a phone number if you want to.)
  16. Click Apply
  17. Connect your iPhone, iPod touch, and/or iPad to apply the new settings

Additional steps

It should be noted that all this does is prevent new pairing records from being generated, it does not delete existing records, nor does it protect against other types of hacking.

Apple doesn’t currently provide a front end for deleting old or existing pairing records, either on OS X or iOS, which means you’re left to either manually search for and try to remove them on your own (/var/db/lockdown or ~/Library/Lockdown on Mac or C:\Program Data\Apple\iTunes\Lockdown on Windows).

Someone else having physical access to your device or devices is in and of itself a massive security problem. However, there are some things you do to make it more difficult or time consuming for someone with your device to try and get to your data, including using a long, strong alphanumeric password instead of a passcode or Touch ID, and turning off Lock screen access for Control Center, Notification Center, Siri, Passbook, etc,. To prevent other types of remote access, you can enable two-step verification on your accounts and use unique passwords in conjunction with a password manager.

This one comes from mouseglider, straight out of Mobile Nations’ own Android Central forums. If you’re looking for a kickstand, or a tripod adapter, or just a way to hold something bigger than one hand in one hand, it’s worth a close look.

Kickstand4u is billed as the “Ultimate Accessory Package” for all your mobile devices, the small (and removable) base attaches to the back of your phone or tablet, and can be used with or without a case. Using different pieces that attach to the base, you can have a kickstand for your phone, or add an extender to use with your tablet, or add a mounting bracket so that your favorite device can screw right onto a standard tripod. For extra-bonus-round points, the base kickstand is also a “Sure Grip” adapter so you can keep hold of your phone or tablet with one hand at any angle — perfect for reading in bed.

But mouseglider and company need our help. The Kickstarter project needs to meet its $ 18.845 funding goal by the end of August 2014. Even if you can’t swing the $ 10 to get early access to a Kickstand4u of your own, you can still throw a buck or two to help fund the project. Everyone seems to love kickstands, and often the best products come from makers and tinkerers who don’t have millions of Samsung or Apple dollars at their disposal.

Hit the links below and give this one a look!

If you have a visual impairment that makes it difficult for you to read text or see icons on your iPhone or iPad, the zoom feature is a great accessibility option that allows you to magnify text and even your Home screen, but only when you need to. While larger and bolder text helps, enabling zoom adds even more flexibility on the fly. All you’ve got to do is enable it first!


How to enable zoom for better visual accessibility on your iPhone or iPad

  1. Launch the Settings app on your iPhone or iPad.
  2. Tap on General.
  3. Tap on Accessibility.
  4. Under the Vision section, tap on Zoom.
  5. Turn the Zoom option On.

Once you’ve got Zoom enabled, you can use it on the fly. Here’s how to use it:

  • Double tap with three fingers anywhere on the screen to enable and disable zoom. You can do this from pretty much anywhere.
  • Drag three fingers around the screen to pan around and move to another area of the screen.
  • Use one or two fingers to scroll in the particular section that is on the screen.

That’s it! You’re good to go! If you ever decide you don’t like zoom enabled, you can easily disable it by hopping back into the Settings app again.

Did you add a contact to your iPhone running iOS 7.1.2 only to find that it doesn’t show up in your Contacts app? Or perhaps it isn’t syncing to your other devices via iCloud like it’s supposed to. I recently had a friend experience this issue and a few days later I did too. As it turns out, the problem isn’t actually iCloud at all. Luckily, the fix is super simple!


How to default back to saving new contacts to iCloud

For most folks experiencing this problem, the issue is that their iPhone or iPad somehow defaults to the On my iPhone contacts group after upgrading to iOS 7.1.2. The problem actually isn’t iCloud sync at all. This explains why they aren’t showing up across devices as well. All you’ve got to do to fix the issue is change the default in Settings back to iCloud.

  1. Launch the Settings app on your iPhone or iPad.
  2. Tap on Mail, Contacts, Calendars — you’ll need to scroll down a ways.
  3. Under Contacts, tap on Default Account.
  4. Make sure iCloud is selected and NOT On my iPhone.

Unfortunately, there’s no way to toggle where contacts are saved to after adding them so to get the missing contacts into iCloud, you’ll need to copy the numbers and create new entries after you’ve defaulted back to iCloud syncing. Here’s how to find the missing contacts so you know which ones you need to re-add:

How to weed out disappearing contacts on your iPhone or iPad

  1. Launch the Phone app on your iPhone or iPad.
  2. Tap on Groups at the top left.
  3. Uncheck All iCloud and check All on My iPhone.
  4. Tap Done at the top.
  5. You should now see a list of all the contacts that aren’t syncing or are missing from other devices.

For most folks, the problem group will be All on My iPhone. Once you have a list of who you need to re-add, just be sure you have iCloud selected under groups before re-adding. The easiest way to make sure is to hide the On My iPhone group again.

If you’ve had strange issues with contact syncing under iOS 7.1.2, give the above steps a try and see if you can not only find your missing contacts, but fix the issue permanently.
