Apple's Yosemite OS shares Spotlight search terms by default

Apple is being called out for how it shares desktop and Web searches in its latest desktop operating system, Yosemite.

Spotlight, which underwent a rework for Yosemite, indexes desktop files and makes them searchable via keywords. By default, the latest iteration of Spotlight sends those search terms to Apple, in conjunction with Microsoft?s Bing search engine, which Apple says is used to improve Spotlight?s accuracy.

If ?Location Services? are turned on in Yosemite, a computer?s approximate location is also sent to Apple whenever Spotlight is used. Apple advises users of the data it is collecting and says that the sharing can be disabled by turning off ?Spotlight Suggestions.?

Why Apple Pay could even be a big deal for Android users

The launch of Apple Pay on Monday has brought considerable publicity to a technology that?s already embedded in millions of Android smartphones yet has so far failed to take off.

Clunky implementations, lack of widespread acceptance and poor user knowledge have hampered NFC technology, but some in the payments industry are hoping Apple Pay has an impact far beyond iPhone 6 users.

?I think without a doubt, Apple has a unique place in the mobile ecosystem, with hardware, software and services,? said James Anderson, senior vice president of emerging payments at MasterCard. He said Apple?s adoption is an endorsement of NFC and gives consumers the feeling that the technology is safe and ready to be used.

Microsoft (hearts) Linux, for Azure's sake

Microsoft now loves Linux.

This was the message from Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, standing in front of an image that read ?Microsoft [heart symbol] Linux,? during a Monday webcast to announce a number of services it had added to its Azure cloud, including the Cloudera Hadoop package and the CoreOS Linux distribution.

In addition, the company launched a marketplace portal, now in preview mode, designed to make it easier for customers to procure and manage their cloud operations.

Microsoft is also planning to release an Azure appliance, in conjunction with Dell, that will allow organizations to run hybrid clouds where they can easily move operations between Microsoft?s Azure cloud and their own in-house version.
