NSA worked on iPhone spyware to remotely monitor users, leaked documents show - Der Spiegel asserts specialized NSA Tailored Access Operations (TAO) teams intercept incoming device shipments, carefully open packages and install spyware before sending the "bugged" units along to end users.

Mac Developer: Rumor: Chinese company pays $1 million to sponsor jailbreak for Apple's iOS 7

Rumor: Chinese company pays $1 million to sponsor jailbreak for Apple's iOS 7 - The controversy expanded when it was discovered that Taig's storefront played host to a plethora of pirated apps and that the code of the evasi0n application itself was heavily obfuscated, making it difficult for other developers to audit.


It's not unusual to be loved by anyone!

Mac Developer: Researchers find way to activate iSight cameras without alerting users

Researchers find way to activate iSight cameras without alerting users - Researchers Matthew Brocker and Stephen Checkoway outline the attack, which targets the firmware inside the iSight camera's controller chip, in a paper entitled "iSeeYou: Disabling the MacBook Webcam Indicator LED." The paper was first reported by the Washington Post.


I think it's pretty obvious that the solution is to eliminate the camera from all future Mac models. And while we're at it, let's eliminate the CPU as well. The CPU-less, camera-less Mac will make a nice prop in the suburban home of tomorrow.

Goodbye athlete's foot: IBM researchers craft nanomedicine to kill fungi where other meds fail | VentureBeat | Health | by Dean Takahashi - IBM researchers and a team in Singapore have taken common plastic and engineered it into a nanomedicine that is 1,000 times smaller than a grain of sand and can be used to attack fungi that are resistant to antibiotics.

Mac Developer: Review: Using the GoPro Hero3+ Black Edition camera with Apple's iPhone

Review: Using the GoPro Hero3+ Black Edition camera with Apple's iPhone - The world's most versatile camera and the world's most popular smartphone lineup join forces thanks to the official GoPro app for iOS. Built-in wireless connectivity, stunning picture quality and a stellar lineup of accessories make the GoPro Hero3+ camera an easy recommendation — one made only better by connecting it to an iPhone.


In theory, it should have been impossible to launch a new dedicated consumer camera. How? Specicifity.

Mac Developer: Mysterious internet data hijacking operation discovered | The Verge

Mysterious internet data hijacking operation discovered | The Verge - A sizable chunk of internet traffic made an unnoticed pit stop in Belarus and Iceland at several points over the past year, a security firm said today. Renesys, a company that monitors online activity, says some internet traffic was hijacked en route to the US and other locations, including government destinations as part of a scheme of unknown origin.


IOW, the Russians are doing it as well.

Mac Developer: This Is the MIT Surveillance Video That Undid Aaron Swartz | Threat Level | Wired.com

This Is the MIT Surveillance Video That Undid Aaron Swartz | Threat Level | Wired.com - the network closet is crammed with a jumble of Sharpie graffiti dating back to the early 1980s — earlier generations of hackers at the institution that invented hacking, going places they shouldn’t go, doing things they shouldn’t do, leaving their mark at the very spot where, on January 4, 2011, MIT lost its tolerance for such behavior.


Think Different doesn't really exist anymore. Except maybe in the Raspberry Pi.
