French Art Director Thomas Jullien painstakingly picked 852 Instagram photos that he put together in this amazing video montage. Okay, it might not be the coolest video you’ll see this month, but it should at least deserve the “coolest video of the week” award.
Things have started to get out of hand very quickly with iPhone concepts over the last few months, so we decided to slow down our coverage of them. As a matter of fact, I don’t believe we’ve published one iPhone concept since last June.

Apple executives today sent a company wide email to employees asking them to review Apple’s Business Conduct Policy, reports 9to5Mac. The policy reportedly details how employees should behave both in and outside of the company while representing Apple, covering topics like personal investments, workplace relationships, and policies on public speaking, press inquiries, and endorsements.
The email included an iBooks version of the Business Conduct Policy and a video from Tim Cook, which gives an inside look at company values.
As Dr. Martin Luther King once said, the time is always right to do what’s right. At Apple, we do the right thing. Even when it’s not easy. If you see something that doesn’t meet our standards, speak up. Whether it’s a quality issue or a business practice, if it affects Apple’s integrity, we need to know about it.
In the email, sent by SVP and General Counsel Bruce Sewell, Apple reminds employees that its policies are based on core values of “honesty, respect, confidentiality, and the critical obligation of every Apple employee to adhere to legal principles like antitrust and anti-corruption laws.”
I am writing to ask you to do something very important — set aside a little time to review Apple’s Business Conduct Policy. It explains in very clear terms how you are expected to conduct yourself with our customers, business partners, government agencies, and fellow employees. We expect every Apple employee to understand and comply with these rules.
While it is unclear whether there was a particular incident that spurred the email and video to employees, Apple has had ongoing trouble with product and information leaks. Apple has always been a secretive company, and last year, Tim Cook even promised to “double down” on secrecy when it came to products.
Despite Cook’s efforts, multiple Apple products in recent months have leaked early, with prototype shells and parts for the iPad Air, the iPhone 5s, and the iPhone 5c appearing well ahead of their fall launches.
After months of rumors and speculations, the Retina iPad mini went on sale in several countries earlier today.

BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) is now cross-platform, and that means my good friend (and boss) Kevin Michaluk can now torment keep in touch with everyone at iMore and Android Central, all from one app. With over 20 million iOS and Android users added to the BlackBerry Base, I’ve got everyone from old friends to old colleages BBM’ing now. BlackBerry is obviously thrilled, and to show how thrilled they are, they’re teaming up with Mobile Nations to do something decidedly awesome. It’s BBM4ALL, Mobile Nations style! And it’s where you come in! Yup – CONTEST TIME! Here’s your chance to show your love for BBM and to help spread the word that BBM is not only the best messenger available on BlackBerry, but Android and iPhone as well.
What You Need to Do
Create a video ad showing off cross-platform BBM. You’re essentially creating a TV commercial so you need to get the message across and do it well. Show BBM chats, file sharing, groups, delivery and read notifications — whatever you want. The goal is to make people want to run to BBM.com and download BBM on their device.
You can show off the actual app, a video of your friends using BBM, a funny skit … whatever you think will make your BBM ad reign supreme.
Here’s an example:
You can certainly do better than that, right?
Your video should be no longer than one minute and needs to show at least one of the following:
Creative way to tell your friends to get BBM
Show some of the key differentiators of BBM vs. WhatsApp or other IM clients as reasons why to download BBM
Show fun/creative ways to share your PIN with your friends
Other than that there are no constraints, so go nuts. We’ll be looking at how well you get the message across, how good your video looks and how much awesome it’s packing.
At the end of the entry period we’ll be picking the one video that we think is the best of them all.
One grand prize winner will receive a BBM prize pack that includes:
Round trip for two (2) to Toronto to attend a Toronto Maple Leafs OR Toronto Raptors game
A visit to BlackBerry HQ at Waterloo to meet the BBM team
A guided tour of the city with BlackBerry’s Alex Kinsella
How To Enter
Create your video and then send us a link to the file (Dropbox, Box, etc) so we can download it. Submit your entries to email@example.com before November 30th at midnight PT. One entry per person.
The competition will be tough as we’re running this one on CrackBerry and Android Central as well, so keep that in mind as we’ll only be picking one grand prize winner.
Responding to a Quarkslab white paper made public at the Hack the Box conference yesterday – which claims that researchers have successfully intercepted iMessage exchanges – Apple felt compelled to issue a written statement reiterating the company’s stance that it can’t read any one’s iMessage even if it wanted to because it doesn’t have access to the public keys used to encrypt communication (AES, RSA, and ECDSA algorithms).
The assumed message interception reportedly allows attackers to seamlessly change the sent message before it arrives and thereby impersonate the sender. Apple’s claim that “iMessage is not architected to allow Apple to read messages” is now brought into question as the researchers released video evidence of the vulnerability…(…) Read the rest of Video details how Apple can read your iMessages
Yahoo! Screen for iOS is a relatively new product, but already the updates are flowing, and pretty useful ones at that. Pushing out through the App Store now, Yahoo! has added AirPlay support for content within the app leaving you able to watch on your TV while continuing to browse the app for other video content to watch.
The update also adds support for live video broadcasts, and will send push notifications on “breaking news” that it thinks you might want to hear about. Grab it from the App Store at the link below, but tell me, have you been using Yahoo! Screen so far, and what do you think of it?
