Infinite Tanks is out now for iOS, offering the ultimate in automotive assault. The game gets its name from its powerful personalisation system, which uses virtual cards to represent each vehicle’s component parts. The choice available for each vehicle’s engine, body, track, turrets, and guns produces over 100 million unique vehicles, excluding aesthetic personalization options such as paint and accessories.

Players can mix, match, and swap cards with their friends to create their own version of the perfect vehicle to suit their own particular play style, from nippy speedsters to great big lumbering hunks of pure defensive power, to all-out attack vehicles with massive booming guns. Once you’ve created your perfect beast, then its onward to the multiplayer mayhem.

9to5 Mac reports that black hat security firm Zerodium has increased its maximum bounty for finding zero-day iOS 10 exploits to $1.5 million, having previously offered $1 million for iOS 9 exploits.

Zero-day exploits are those that have not yet been discovered by the developer, and therefore give companies zero days to prepare. Zerodium’s founder, Chaouki Bekrar, told Arstechnica that the company was offering more money for iOS 10 exploits as a result of the increased security in iOS 10.

Bekrar said that Zerodium was prepared to offer much more money for the discovery of zero-day iOS exploits than Android exploits because “iOS 10 chain exploits are either 7.5 x harder than Android or the demand for iOS exploits is 7.5 x higher. The reality is a mix of both.”

Explaining what makes an exploit worth of big-bucks payouts from Zerodium, Bekrar said, “To qualify for a Zerodium bounty, the chain must generally work almost flawlessly to surreptitiously give an attacker complete control over the targeted device. In the parlance of hackers, that’s called a weaponized exploit. It’s not enough that a researcher provides only a rough outline of the vulnerabilities with a less-than-perfect proof-of-concept exploit. The bounties paid by Apple and Google, by contrast, are much less demanding, and as a result, they generally require less work.”

9to5 Mac reports on another story of a business that is using the Apple Watch as part of its customer service initiative, namely the 30-year-old Union Square Café, which is due to reopen next month.

According to a story in Eater, Shake Shack founder Danny Meyer, who owns the Union Square Café, wants every floor manager and sommelier to wear an Apple Watch. Then, when a VIP enters the restaurant, or someone asks for a bottle of wine or a menu item runs out of stock, for example, every manager will be alerted to this via their Apple Watch.

iPads will also be a part of the system, which has been devised in conjunction with Meyer and reservation system startup Resy.

Other uses for the Apple Watch as part of the new system include pinging the coat-room attendant to get a guest’s coat when they are ready to leave, hopefully making for a much more streamlined dining experience all round, and making things a lot easier for the management team as well.

The London Evening Standard newspaper, via MacRumors, has reported that Apple is to build a massive campus in London’s iconic Battersea Power Station, moving 1,000 employees into the new offices from eight other locations in London.

Apple is set to lease 500,000 square feet for the site, which would make it one of Apple’s biggest offices aside from its US campuses. However, Apple’s official European headquarters will still be in Cork, Ireland, where 4,000 people are employed by the company. Apple’s offices are expected to open in 2021.

Apple officially confirmed the news in a statement to the Standard, saying that it was looking forward to the 2021 opening in “this magnificent new development at one of the city’s best-known landmarks…This is a great opportunity to have our entire team working and collaborating in one location while supporting the renovation of a neighbourhood rich with history.”

Apple will take up the top six floors inside the boiler house, complete with huge central atrium, in what sounds like a magnificent development.
