° From MacRumors: Apple’s annual National Parks activity challenge is set to take place on Saturday, August 27th, in celebration of national parks worldwide.

° From 9to5Mac: Another Apple Original is set to be available on Blu-ray.Award-winning TV show “For All Mankind” will see a physical release next month as the company expands its titles available for people to physically own them.

° From iMore: Kim Kardashian’s special edition Beats Fit Pro are already sold out.

° From MacVoices Live!: On the new episode, Chuck Joiner, Jim Rea, David Ginsburg, Warren Sklar, Mark Fuccio, and Jeff Gamet continue their discussion of Apple Pay and who is making money from it. Then, things get a little intense as the MacVoices Live! panel considers the reports that the Secret Service lost important messages, allegedly due to Apple’s encryption. (Part 2)
