FairPlay is a digital rights management (DRM) technology introduced by Apple Inc., based on technology created by the company Veridisc. FairPlay is built into the QuickTime multimedia software and used by the iPhoneiPodiPadApple TViTunes, and iTunes Store and the App Store. Users will encounter Fairplay DRM technology when they buy iTunes movies/TV shows, Apps or even eBooks from iTunes store. This DRM technology strictly prevents them accessing their purchased content freely. As a consumer, you can do nothing on any iTunes content but to watch the movies or rend the ebooks with Apple’s products.

It’s said DRM technology is an ideal method to protect the copy right on digital content. However, to many consumers, it’s disgusting.  It performs more as a tool for digital content providers to earn more money, but not a effective way to protect the copy right.  Take iTunes movies for example,  we purchase or rent a movie from iTunes movie store, we are limited to watch the movie on Apple’s products only, like iTunes, iPhone, iPad, iPod, Apple TV…  we can’t not edit the movie, share the movie on network with our friends or convert the M4V movies to any other common formats.  What’s worse, we can watch the movie on 5 devices at most with iTunes home sharing function.

That’s the reason that so many people asked “How to crack Fairplay DRM iTunes DRM” in many forums.  And to fulfill the requirements,  many software company provide some useful DRM Removal tools for personal use.  Here are some professional ones.

Previously, I discussed how to have your iOS device read text for you in iOS 6, and in iOS 7 it works pretty much the same way – but with some little differences.

As in iOS 6, there are two different ways to make text speakable on an iOS device. But before we do that and discuss how to do it, let’s first set up our iOS device so we can do it:

iOS devices are built with all users in mind: they come with several accessibility features for low-vision or legally blind users, settings for hard-of-hearing or deaf users, settings for individuals who have physical and motor difficulties, and settings for individuals with learning difficulties.

In this accessibility segment, I will be discussing how to make text speakable on an iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch:

Little-Snitch-10th-Anniversary

9to5Mac has once again scoured the App Store for all the latest app launches, price drops, noteworthy news, and updates, and we have compiled everything in a roundup below. Check it out, but keep coming back as we continually refresh the list throughout the day.

News

1. Little Snitch 50-percent off all week to celebrate 10th anniversaryObjective Development, the developers behind the popular ‘Little Snitch’ network and application monitoring tool, today informed us it’s celebrating its 10th anniversary with a 50-percent off sale. A single license for the software, normally $35, is now available from the developer’s website for under $18.

Since then the little offspring flourished magnificently and became a synonym for the deliberate, attentive and self-determined protection of private data. And the more popular and widespread Little Snitch became over the years, the more often cases became public, where programs deliberately or simply carelessly ignored the protection of personal data, such as a social media program that sent the entire address book without the user’s knowledge to the vendor’s servers. Little Snitch also became famous for uncovering numerous trojans and other malware. Right up to those malicious programs, who took just the mere presence of Little Snitch as a reason to refrain from their malicious performance.

Updates

Microsoft is allegedly prepping to directly compete with Apple in the tablet market

The Redmond, Wash.-based Company scheduled an event in Los Angeles on Monday to make a “major announcement.” AllThingsD reported earlier this week that the event would unveil Microsoft’s tablet plans:

  • After signaling for months that it would attack the market only through its traditional hardware partners, Microsoft has decided to enter the tablet business more directly. […]
  • Sources say that Microsoft concluded that it needs its own tablet, with the company designing both the hardware and software in an effort to better compete against Apple’s strengths. Microsoft’s tablets may include machines running ARM-based processors as well as models running on traditional PC processors, sources said.

Perhaps more interesting: The Wrap claimed Microsoft will self-manufacture the device, which is an assertion that AllThingsD supports. The move is certainly plausible, because Microsoft snatched a 17.6-percent stake in Barnes and Noble’s Nook eReader business last month for $300 million. One could speculate that Apple and Amazon’s dominating presence in the market causes companies like Microsoft and Barnes and Noble to join forces.

The iPad is more than just a content-yielding eReader, and consumers are finally making the distinction.

Analytics firm IDC released new data today illustrating Apple’s global tablet market share having increased dramatically from 2011’s holiday quarter. The firm accredited the iPad’s success to its all-purpose functionality that outshines Android devices’ content.

The iPad rose to 68 percent in Q1 2012 from 54.7-percent in Q4 2011. Apple’s 13.3-percent gain is attributed to the Kindle Fire’s staggering 12.8-percent drop to 4 percent in Q1 2012.

IDC’s Mobile Connected Devices Research Director Tom Mainelli explained the market share differences:

“Apple reasserted its dominance in the market this quarter, driving huge shipment totals at a time when all but a few Android vendors saw their numbers drop precipitously after posting big gains during the holiday buying season. […] Apple’s move to position the iPad as an all-purpose tablet, instead of just a content consumption device, is resonating with consumers as well as educational and commercial buyers. And its decision to keep a lower-priced iPad 2 in the market after it launched the new iPad in March seems to be paying off as well.”
