  1. Raven Reader is a cross-platform, open source RSS feed aggregator that supports podcasts RSS Feed aggregators are a great way to stay up-do-date with the latest articles from your favorite websites.

Enlarge Apple 56 with 46 posters participating, including story author Earlier this week, various macOS sysadmins began reporting that some Apple devices were failing to upgrade to Big Sur version 11.1.

  3. fre:ac is an open source audio converter for Windows, Linux and Mac Do you like listening to music? Who doesn't? I prefer quality to quantity, which is why my library consists of audio files in the FLAC format whenever possible. This comes at a cost, have a couple of dozen albums and you are looking at Gigabytes worth of music. But sometimes you may have to choose between storage space and your songs. If I had a phone or digital music player without a memory card, I would somewhat grudgingly ditch FLAC in favor of lossy MP3 tracks.

Big Sur is one of the biggest updates to Apple’s laptop and desktop software in years, featuring a top-to-bottom redesign of the interface, icons, and menu bar, a new control center UI borrowed from iOS, widgets (also borrowed from iOS), and a variety of other improvements (see here for the full list). It’s such a big change that Apple is actually moving on from the OS X / OS 10 branding that it’s be
  10. A group of academics from the University of California and Tsinghua University has uncovered a series of critical security flaws that could lead to a revival of DNS cache poisoning attacks. Dubbed "SAD DNS attack" (short for Side-channel AttackeD DNS), the technique makes it possible for a malicious actor to carry out an off-path attack, rerouting any traffic originally destined to a specific domain to a server under their control, thereby allowing them to eavesdrop and tamper with the communications. "This represents an important milestone — the fir
  11. Apps will be key to a successful transition. Apple announced macOS Big Sur at WWDC in June, and though we’ve seen a preview by way of a public beta in September, the software has yet to officially roll out. At its Mac-focused event today, the company unveiled its new ARM-based chipset for laptops: the M1. It also shared some additional optimizations for the new silicon as well as an official release date for the software update, which rolls out on November 12th. “For the first time ever
  12. [No root required] Control your Android phone from your computer with Scrcpy There are many tools available online which claim to mirror your phone's screen on your computer's monitor. Some of these are online service or closed source programs, some are premium software. Forget virtual machines, those aren't easy to set up and can get quite resource intensive. A friend of mine tinkers with broken phones, and he told me that he uses an open source tool called Scrcpy to recover data from phones with damaged or non-functional

  14.

  15. Apple releases macOS Catalina 10.15.7, possibly the last Catalina update There were also updates to Final Cut Pro X and iMovie. Enlarge / No operating system is an island, but macOS Catalina is named after one. Apple 11 with 11 posters participating Earlier this week, Apple released updates for iOS, iPadOS, and watchOS—but nothing for macOS. Usually, Cupertino updates all its operating systems at once, but we're in an odd place right now with new annual releases of the former three making their way to users' devi
  16. SwagLyrics displays the lyrics of the song that's playing in Spotify desktop and the web version Spotify added support for Live Lyrics a few months ago (at least in some Countries). I don't like the way it has been implemented. First there is the gigantic text which looks odd, but the main problem with it is that when you click on the mic button the program loads the lyrics in the main pane. If you click on anything else, the window changes, so you can't browse/discover music and have the lyrics displayed at the same time.

  19. Apple Accidentally Approved Malware to Run on MacOS The ubiquitous Shlayer adware has picked up a new trick, slipping past Cupertino's “notarization” defenses for the first time. Notarization can help Apple keep security pretty tight, but anything that does sneak past can then spread quickly because it has the company's imprimatur.Photograph: Mairo Cinquetti/NurPhoto/Getty Images For decades, Mac users had to worry less about malware than the
