(Credit: Roger Cheng/CNET)
Apple's iBeacon will find its way to Apple Store customers on Friday.
Apple will start using the iBeacon feature built into iOS 7 to be a personal shopper for customers on Friday at its 254 stores across the US. As long as you have Apple's official Store app installed and allow the program to track your location, iBeacon can tell you about the products you're near in the store, and provide order updates that can be shared with sales staff on the floor.
- Apple to start following you around its stores, report says
- Baseball's beacon trials hint at Apple's location revolution
- Bluetooth beacons coming to ballparks
- MLB tests Apple's iBeacon at Citi Field
One of the more interesting tools Apple has built into iBeacon is the ability to determine upgrade eligibility on the iPhone. When near an iPhone, Apple's app will see if you'd like to upgrade to the newer version. The app will also check upgrade eligibility to determine if it's a feasible move right now.

Star Apps: Lupe Fiasco
Lupe Fiasco, the Grammy-winning, platinum-selling rapper, releases his next record, "Tetsuo and Youth," in early 2014. Fans are getting a taste of the new material on the Tetsuo and Youth preview tour this month.
From the road, the rapper best known for spitting such hits as "Superstar," "The Show Goes On," "Out of My Head," and "Battle Scars" chatted about the new album, the apps he uses on the road, his new health and wellness app, and his top five faves.(Credit: Courtesy: The Chambers Group)
While on tour, which apps do you use to stay in touch with your fans and your loved ones? Twitter.
In terms of the new album, what does the title mean, and what can you tell us about the sound and subject matter and release date? The title literally means nothing at all; it's just a title I pulled. The sound is a bit more raunchy and ratchet but with the infamous Lupe Fiasco twist. The release date is currently slated for early next year.
You've released a lot of mixtapes, and there's a mixtape on your current single artwork. Is there still a place for the mixtape in 2013? Yes.

Assassin's Creed: Pirates sets sail in Apple's App Store
Apple's App Store has a new set of pirates.
Game maker Ubisoft has released Assassin's Creed: Pirates for iOS. The game is essentially a pirate simulator, allowing gamers to engage in naval combat, build up their pirate ship, and explore the Caribbean. Gamers play as Alonzo Batilla.
The Assassin's Creed franchise has been extremely popular on consoles. The latest launch, Black Flag, is also set on the open seas and features pirates. Black Flag is available on consoles, but not on iOS.
Assassin's Creed: Pirates is available in Apple's App Store for $4.99. It works on both the iPad and iPhone -- though the latter must be an iPhone 4S or newer.
Adobe and Java vulnerabilities leave Windows open for exploitation
A recent report by the AV-Test Institute found that exploits in Adobe Reader, Adobe Flash, and Java account for 66 percent of Windows systems affected by malware.
In a 10-year-plus study, AV-Test uncovered that one exploit for Adobe Reader had nearly 37,000 recorded variants that exploited user machines with high levels of precision. Users with outdated software or versions known to be susceptible stood virtually no chance of avoiding malware damage without some form of protective software.(Credit: AV-Test Institute)
The biggest offender? Java, which had a whopping 82,000 attacks spread across different versions, making it one of the most vulnerable magnets for exploitation.
The race to secure Java is ongoing. In the meantime, users can take better precautions to protect themselves from PDF exploits by using the following alternatives to Adobe Reader:

Is Cannonball the best iPad e-mail client yet?
(Credit: Screenshot by Rick Broida/CNET)
Think about how you process your daily snail mail. If you're anything like me, you separate the important items -- bills, letters, cards, and so on -- into one pile and the fliers, catalogs, magazines, and other stuff into another.
Free iOS app Cannonball applies that same concept to managing e-mail on your iPad, automatically separating the wheat messages from the chaff messages and presenting them in a visually appealing format. It also incorporates a few handy elements from popular e-mail client Mailbox.
The app supports Gmail, iCloud, Outlook.com, and Yahoo, and offers a unified inbox for users with multiple accounts. To add accounts from any of these services, you simply enter your e-mail address and password. In short order it starts downloading and dividing messages, listing the important stuff on the left in a fairly traditional scrolling inbox. Your newsletters, promotional mail, and the like appear on the right, but Cannonball cleverly employs thumbnail previews for these so you get ... [Read more]

Survey: Did cheaper Photoshop subscriptions win you over?
(Credit: Adobe Systems)
Adobe Systems has been more aggressive of late with its subscription plans, and we'd like to know if you think they're worth it.
That's right: It's time for the fourth Adobe survey in a series that CNET and analyst firm Jefferies are running to try to gauge customer sentiment about Adobe's products and its transition to a subscription company.
Click the link above if you want to take the survey, but here's a preview of one part: We'd like to know if you signed up for Adobe's Photoshop Photography Program.
The program is a $10-per-month deal for Lightroom and Photoshop that's available to people who bought Creative Suite 3 or later and that runs through the end of 2013. But over the last week, Adobe also offered a Black Friday variation that was open to anyone, not just earlier CS owners. That addressed a common complaint with the program, though only for a week.
Update: Adobe extended the Black Friday promotion to December 8.

How did you get this opportunity? I was at Chateau Marmont, and my agent called me and said that E! Network is doing a new show called "Party On" and they need a host who travels around to these luxurious destinations and immerses themselves in the culture and really finds out about each location for people who might not have been there or don't know what this city or island is about.
Once I got the call, I was very excited, because I'm very well traveled -- I love traveling, ... [Read more]
