Most of Soundfreaq’s speakers require no explanation: it’s clear from their designs that they are made to be stationary, portable, ultra-portable, clock radios, or highly budget-sensitive. Double Spot doesn’t fit neatly into any of those categories. It’s based upon the company’s stripped-down $70 Sound Spot, yet it’s more than twice as large, and roughly twice as expensive. When asked to explain Double Spot’s…
In response to allegations that iCloud played a role in the recent release of many private celebrity photos, Apple has confirmed that “certain celebrity accounts were compromised by a very targeted attack on user names, passwords and security questions, a practice that has become all too common on the Internet.” Despite the account intrusions, Apple claims that none of its systems, including iCloud and Find my iPhone, were breached.
