How People In Hong Kong Can Communicate If Cell Networks Go Down
 How People In Hong Kong Can Communicate If Cell Networks Go Down
Many protesters in Hong Kong who suspect authorities may shut down some cell networks in the city have begun chatting on an app that doesn't require a central network connection. The app, however, has some potential pitfalls and demonstrators have a few other options at their disposal, especially if they have Android phones. At least 100,000 people in Hong Kong have reportedly downloaded FireChat in the last 24 hours. The service allows users to talk anonymously in chat rooms with groups of people nearby, and the connection works on Android and iOS via a Bluetooth or Wi-Fi connection.

 Apple’s OS X Yosemite Reaches GM Status, Nears Consumer Launch
Apple’s OS X Yosemite operating system is arriving soon, and the fact that the developer preview just reached Golden Master status, alongside a 4th public beta preview update , means we probably don’t have long to wait. Last year, Apple released its Mavericks GM build about three weeks before it released the update to the Mac App Store for everyone to download, so Yosemite is on track for the mid-to-late October launch window many are predicting.

 U.S. Attorney General Criticizes Apple, Google Data Encryption
Joining a cry from law enforcement officials concerned about data encryption on Apple's newest operating system, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said on Tuesday that officers should not be blocked from the information they need to investigate a crime. Apple's new iPhone 6, released this month, and Google's coming update of the Android smartphone have data encryption so sophisticated that only the user may unlock it. Even law enforcement officers with search warrants would not have access. Read More

 Apple Gets Illegal Tax Rebates From Ireland, EU Says
Ireland appears to be granting Apple illegal tax rebates that may have to be recouped, the European Union's competition watchdog said Tuesday as it pressed on with an inquiry into the iPhone maker's overseas tax practices.

Nasty IOS 8 Bug Could Reportedly Erase Your ICloud Drive Documents
 Nasty IOS 8 Bug Could Reportedly Erase Your ICloud Drive Documents
After a disastrous iOS 8.0.1 rollout and a ton of publicity surrounding Bendgate, saying that Apple had a bad week is an understatement. Unfortunately, things aren't looking much better this week, as MacRumors reports on a particularly nasty iOS 8 bug, which could potentially erase the iWork documents stored in your iCloud drive. According to the report, the option to "Reset All Settings," found under Settings — General — Reset in iOS 8, also deletes documents from the iCloud Drive — permanently. The option, which normally resets settings to factory defaults, clearly states that "no data or media will be deleted." However, after some users on MacRumors' forum complained about the bug, MacRumors tested the option out, and indeed, all the iWork documents stored in iCloud Drive both on the iPhone and on iCloud.com were gone.
