In Brief

If you switch from an iPhone to an Android or other phone, there’s a good chance that some text messages will go missing due to the way Apple handles its iMessage application. Some people have been able to fix the problem — here’s how I did it – but some former iPhone users, like former Lifehacker Adam Pash, are complaining there’s no solution in sight. Adrianne Moore, one of the aggrieved switchers, filed a class action lawsuit on Friday looking for both a fix and restitution from Apple. The lawsuit was filed in federal court in San Jose, California. If you’re interested in the case, most of the filing is available over at Patently Apple.

OS X Mavericks logo

Nearly three months since the last update, Apple released OS X version 10.9.3 on Thursday. According to Apple’s own support page detailing the changes, the software provides a better 4K scaling experience on both the Mac Pro and MacBook Pro with 15-inch Retina Display computers. That’s assuming you own a 4K monitor, of course. There’s something for every Mac owner though including Safari 7.0.3 and the ability to sync both contacts and calendar events over a USB connection between your Mac and iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.

straight-talk-sim

Although Straight Talk has long advertised its mobile broadband service as “unlimited”, the company acknowledged in September that it only offered 2.5 GB per month. After hitting that limit, the provider slows down speeds on its $45 monthly plan. That speed bump is now good for 3 GB of speedy service, Straight Talk said on Wednesday. Straight Talk doesn’t have networks of its own but instead buys wholesale service from traditional carriers and resells it. Essentially, you get the same service and coverage provided by AT&T, T-Mobile or Verizon, for example, at a discount on your iPhone, Android handset or other smartphone.
