Hopper Disassembler 4.3.10- - Binary disassembler,...

Hopper Disassembler is a binary disassembler, decompiler, and debugger for 32- and 64-bit executables. It will let you disassemble any binary you want, and provide you all the information about its content, like imported symbols, or the control flow graph! Hopper can retrieve procedural information about the disassembled code like the stack variables, and lets you name all the objects you want.

Hopper is able to transform the assembly language into a pseudo-code that is easier to understand! You can use its internal Python scripting engine to analyze binaries the way you want (this feature works only with Lion)! Starting from version 2.0, Hopper can even use GDB to debug programs!

And, last but not least, unlike all other tools of its kind, Hopper is perfectly integrated into the OS X environment.



Version 4.3.10-:

  • Fixes the command line tool.



  • OS X 10.9 or later

At Ars Technica, Jon Brodkin outlines what happened, how we got here, and what comes next. Given the overwhelming and bipartisan support for net neutrality from most Americans, the FCC’s move will likely draw challenges both in the courts and in Congress.

The most exciting new thing about the iMac Pro, besides the fact that it comes with a cool new Space Gray housing and matching accessories, is that it’s the first iMac model to feature more than a quad-core processor.

Multicore processors are all the rage these days for so-called prosumers, and for good reason — they provide a lot more processing power for apps that can wield that additional power in parallel, and the cost-barrier to entry, led by AMD’s Ryzen CPUs, has been lowered.

Recently we've reviewed some big, expensive, powerful speaker amplifiers. We've found that big, expensive, powerful gear often sounds very good. It is important, however, to remember that audio equipment can sound good even though it's small, inexpensive, and relatively low-powered. Sometimes a little box can do it all. Today we're looking at a tiny, affordable integrated amplifier from Japanese manufacturer TEAC. We think that for many users, TEAC's AI-101DA may be the "Swiss Army Knife" of stereo components.{/exp:char_limit}

Apple Signs Deal for Space Drama From Battlestar...

Apple has picked up a third new television show, placing a straight-to-series order for a space drama developed by Ronald D. Moore, known for his work on shows like "Battlestar Galactica," "Caprica," "Helix," and "Outlander," reports Deadline.

The show, which "explores what would have happened if the global space race had never ended," comes from Sony Pictures Television and Moore's Tall Ship Productions. It was created and written by Moore and "Fargo" co-executive producers Matt Wolpert and Ben Nedivi.

The new space drama is Apple's third series that's in development. Apple in October inked a deal with Steven Spielberg's Amblin Television and Comcast's NBC Universal to create new episodes of sci-fi series "Amazing Stories." "Amazing Stories," created by Spielberg, originally...

The European Union’s Grand Court has rejected an U.S. government request to intervene in Apple’s fight against an EU order on back taxes. The Cupertino, California-based company is appealing an order to pay approximately $15.3 billion in back taxes to Ireland due to illegal tax breaks. 

The Obama administration disagreed with the move, saying the EU was trying to take money the U.S. should receive. A Grand Court judge says the U.S. failed to prove it had a “direct interest in the result of the case.”  

The European Commission, Europe’s anti-trust and consumer investigation agency, claimed that Ireland, Luxembourg and the Netherlands have attracted...

When Apple finally put its iMac Pro on sale yesterday, there was a lot of discussion about the concept of a non-upgradable pro machine.

While the iMac Pro looks lovely, it’s hard to justify £5k+ on a non-upgradable machine.

iMac Pro looks neat, but I don’t fancy the idea of spending a kajillion dollars on a non-upgradable machine.

Apple releases their first VR capable, *non-upgradable*, computer *starting* at $4999 […] Who is this machine for?

India will raise its import tax on electronics to prioritize goods manufactured in the country. The cell phone tax increase from 10% to 15% could hurt Apple’s struggling market share in the region, notes Seeking Alpha.

Samsung assembles most of the cell phones it sells in the country within India. Apple only assembles the iPhone SE in India and imports the rest. The tech giant and government officials have held talks about the iPhone maker expanding its manufacturing presence in the country, but Apple wants incentives and tax breaks — two things the Indian government has resisted so far.

RIP 12-15-17: Goodbye AOL Instant Messenger

Once upon a time, practically everyone who chatted on the internets used… AOL. Even people that didn’t pay for AOL. Because in a brilliant business move, AOL made their messaging platform free. And it brought a lot of people into instant, online communication. And it was way easier (and prettier) than the predecessors. But it was mostly on computers, not mobile devices. And with constant emoji being added, features being needed, and apps required to make it work on devices, it’s time for AIM to finally be no more.

Sunsetting products is never easy. Especially one as legendary as AIM. So why do it? Text messaging, Signal, Kik, WhatsApp, and even Snapchat replaced AIM. That’s an extremely fragmented industry and I don’t think it matches the image of a media company that the post-merger AOL-Yahoo (Oath) wants to be. But it is the end of an era.

Actually, it’s being shuttered because that era ended years and years ago. And someone finally decided to let the product go....

Apple patent involves a bumper system for surface...

Apple is always looking for more ways to minimize potential damage to iPhones, iPads, and Mac laptops. A new patent filing (number 20170355507) is for “active surface protection for portable electronic devices.”

The invention would provide Apple devices with one or more bumpers that are operable to transition between a stowed position and a deployed position. The bumpers may protect the surfaces of the device from impact is dropped. 

The bumpers may form portions of side corners or other portions of the portable electronic device in the stowed position. In transitioning from the stowed position to the deployed position, the bumpers may rotate and/or translate.

Of course, Apple files for — and is granted — lots of patents by the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office. Many are for inventions that never see the light of day. However, you never can tell which ones will materialize in a real product.

Sony’s XBR-X900E-Series TV is a great companion for...

After purchasing my Apple TV 4K, I began searching for a 4K/HDR television, so I could truly enjoy the set top box’s ability to show movies and shows in 4K HDR quality. I don’t have the moolah for an OLED TV set, so after much research, I settled on Sony’s XBR-X900E-Series 55-inch—Class HDR UHD Smart LED TV.

It’s a top notch HDR TV that occupies the sweet spot between performance, price, and size. I wanted a 65-inch TV set, but my wife is insistent that anything bigger than 55 inches is too big for our living room. And, as the saying goes, “if momma ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy.” 

So 55 inches it was. 

The display

The X900E’s display is gorgeous. It’s not OLED quality, but comes close. UHD image clarity is excellent, the contrast ratio is very good, brightness is superb, and HDR allows for bright, vivid colors. The Sony set boasts the 4K X-Reality Pro Image Processor, 4K HDR Processor X1 , and TRILUMINOS Panel, and Full Array Local...

Notable apps and app updates for Dec. 15, 2017

On a regular basis, Apple World Today posts a list of notable new apps or app updates that have been released. They may not necessarily be new, but they're popular and deserve mention. Here are today's picks.

AppleCare for iMac Pro priced at $169

It’ll be 169 clams for AppleCare+ coverage for your new iMac Pro.

Apple has announced that AppleCare+, which extends your iMac Pro’s warranty from one to three years, will retail for $169. This is cheaper than the AppleCare+ policy for an iPhone X and also reduces the cost of some repairs. If you have a Mac notebook and the display fails, for example, AppleCare+ more than pays for itself.

By comparison, you’ll pay $129 for an iPhone 8, $149 for an iPhone 8 Plus, and $199 for an iPhone X. For a 15-inch MacBook Pro you’ll pay a whopping $379—more than double the cost of AppleCare+ for the iMac Pro.

So, not too terrible for an extended warranty and hopefully this comes in handy.

Apple has announced that its 8-core and 10-core iMac Pro models start at $4,999 and $5,799 respectively and currently ship by late December in the United States, while 14-core and 18-core models starting at $6,599 and $7,399 can also be ordered today, but aren’t estimated to ship for 6-8 weeks, which pushes deliveries into February.

Each iMac Pro configuration has optional upgrades for storage, memory, and graphics, the ultimate, maxed-out, high-end 18-core unit with 4TB of SSD, 128GB of ECC RAM and an AMD Radeon Pro Vega 64 graphics processor with 16GB of HBM2 memory retailing for $13,199.

Apple said the iMac Pro is the fastest and most powerful Mac ever, at least until the modular Mac Pro is ready to be released.

The high-end performance is made possible by an all-new thermal design that delivers up to 80 percent more cooling capacity than a traditional iMac.

One prototype in testing is said to be "between the size" of the newest Echo and the HomePod. It could come in different colors, including a matte black shade, and it has no screen but offers a light-up area on the top for visual feedback like the HomePod.

MacRumors has learned from a reliable source that Apple will begin selling select iMac Pro configurations at its retail stores by mid next week.

We don't know if all of Apple's retail stores around the world will have in-store stock by mid next week, but it's safe to assume that many locations will have the iMac Pro both on display and available to purchase in limited quantities. We can't confirm when authorized resellers like Best Buy will have iMac Pro availability in stores.

First Impressions of the New iMac Pro

Apple held a small press event yesterday in New York City to officially unveil the new iMac Pros, which went on sale today.

It is significantly more expensive than its non-pro iMac siblings — the iMac Pro starts at $4999, but most configurations will cost significantly more. But make no mistake — if you buy one of these, you’re getting true professional performance for your money. You’re not just getting (admittedly gorgeous) space black anodized aluminum.

The entire lineup of iMac Pros is based on Intel’s new Xeon W CPUs, and is entirely SSD based. There are no configurations with spinning hard drives or Fusion drives — according to Apple, the system architecture is designed only to work with SSDs for internal storage. These components are all high-end: the RAM is 2666 MHz DDR 4 ECC; the SSD storage has...

This is great news. It only tracks iOS 11 on mobile devices, but people move to the latest iOS pretty quick on Apple devices, so that shouldn’t be much of a drawback.

Standard 27-inch iMacs have a small hatch in the back that allows the RAM in the machine to be upgraded after purchase, but the iMac Pro does not have that feature.

There is no rear hatch because the RAM in the iMac Pro is not user upgradeable following purchase, but there's good news -- an Apple Store or an Apple Authorized Service Provider is able to open up the iMac Pro and swap out the RAM.

iMore's Rene Ritchie spoke to Apple and learned that any service center is able to upgrade the RAM on an iMac Pro following purchase.

Yes. Any service center, Apple or indie, can upgrade the RAM on iMac Pro post-purchase. https://t.co/4JIRCSsu5H

Review: JBL LSR305 5” Two-Way Powered Studio Monitor

We have reviewed several of JBL's speakers and headphones over the years. Many have touted the "JBL House Sound," but we've never really talked about what that means. Though JBL's current product line includes some interesting consumer lifestyle products, the company's history is in pro audio — chances are that the last movie theater or concert venue you visited used JBL speakers or, at least, many of the songs in your library were mixed using JBL speakers. One of the most important products in JBL's pro audio lineup, the entry-level LSR305, has become more than just a studio monitor — it's become a go-to recommendation for new audiophiles looking for their first set of high-quality speakers.

Apple today confirmed the iMac Pro is equipped with its custom T2 chip for enhanced security and integration. The chip is second-generation silicon, building upon the T1 chip in the latest MacBook Pro with the Touch Bar that authenticates and secures Touch ID and Apple Pay respectively.

Affinity Publisher for Mac teased on video ahead of...

Serif, the company behind such apps as Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo, has made a significant splash over the last few years with apps aimed at creative professionals. What makes apps like Affinity Designer so appealing is that they can be purchased for a flat cost without a subscription, and can function as an outright replacement for the equivalent software under Adobe’s Creative Cloud umbrella.

Despite the success of apps like Affinity Photo — the iPad version just won Apple’s app of the year award — Serif isn’t resting on its laurels. Affinity Publisher, a desktop publishing app that aims to attract Adobe InDesign customers, has been teased on video ahead of its upcoming 2018 beta launch period.  more…
