Apple added on a layer of protection with iOS 7, requiring those who want to delete their iCloud account from their iPhone or restore it to factory settings must disable Find My iPhone first. Find My iPhone then requires you to enter your Apple ID password in order to do that. However, video proof shows that this feature can be bypassed.
The feature makes sure that phone thieves who steal your iPhone can’t avoid being tracked through Find My iPhone, and they must have your Apple ID password in order to reset the phone.
However, YouTube user Miguel Alvarado has discovered a workaround that prevents thieves from having to enter in a password in order to disable Find My [...]

Android 4.4 KitKat offers tons of improvements and new features on Android, but we’re hearing a few horror stories from Nexus 4 owners experiencing problems and bugs since updating to the already late software.
The update to Android 4.4 KitKat for the Nexus 4 hasn’t been extremely smooth. Finally rolling out in the middle of last week, or late into the weekend for most, after other non-Nexus devices like the Moto X, many users were quite frustrated. Now that the new software is finally here though, we’re hearing all sorts of bad news from owners experiencing major issues and home buttons that simply won’t work.
To be specific the update [...]
Last weekend I posted about a bug I discovered on the new iPhone 5s. Well, I wasn’t quite sure if it was an iOS 7 bug or an iPhone 5s bug. Today, I know it isn’t just and iPhone 5s bug as the same bug can now be replicated on the new iPad Air. Or at least, my new iPad Air. So, there is now at least one iPad Air bug.
The bug centers on using the iOS share sheet to share a link or photo to Twitter. Select a picture, hit the Share button, select Twitter, and theoretically off the photo or link goes to Twitter. Well, that was working under iOS 7 on an iPhone 5, an iPad 4, and an iPad mini. In my testing it is not working with the iPhone 5s or the new iPad Air. The [...]
A new bug in Google’s Chrome app for iOS has been discovered, and it’s a big one for privacy buffs. The bug deals with Incognito Mode, and it was discovered that any Google searches done in Incognito Mode would show up in search history when in a regular Chrome window from the Google home page.
This is bad news for those who perform secret Google searches from within Incognito Mode, only to find out that it shows up in your search history when you’re back into normal browsing. Of course, clearing your search history in settings will do the trick, but seeing as how Incognito Mode’s purpose is to not save browsing history, it’s kind of a bigger deal [...]
Last week, Apple sent out a small update to iOS 7 that fixed a lock screen bug that allowed anyone with your phone to access certain regions of your device, such as your camera roll, as well as the ability to share photos to social media sites. However, iOS 7.0.2 hasn’t completely closed up all of the exploits; it turns out that another lock screen bug was discovered.
The lock screen bypass works by utilizing Siri, so to get it working, you start off my initiating a phone call using Siri from the lock screen, then select FaceTime. When FaceTime pops up, put the phone to sleep, then turn on your phone and swipe to unlock. Answer and end the FaceTime call at the other end. [...]
