Mac Developer: British spy agency said to target Apple's iPhone with remote surveillance exploit kit

British spy agency said to target Apple's iPhone with remote surveillance exploit kit - A fifth plugin — dubbed "Porus" — is referred to as providing "kernel stealth" capabilities. This could mean that the spyware is embedded in a manner similar to a rootkit, and might re-install itself automatically after being wiped.


The line between the good guys and bad guys is getting pretty blurry.

Mac Developer: Obama: NSA will not hold telephone metadata, nor spy on heads of state | VentureBeat | Security | by Eric Blattberg

Obama: NSA will not hold telephone metadata, nor spy on heads of state | VentureBeat | Security | by Eric Blattberg - Trying to counter widespread criticism of the National Security Agency’s surveillance programs, President Barack Obama on Friday announced a number of reforms to the way U.S. intelligence agencies operate.


All those activities previously performed by the NSA will move to Homeland Security. Shhhh.

Mac Developer: Planet Labs Launches 'Eyes in Sky' Satellites - Digits - WSJ

Planet Labs Launches 'Eyes in Sky' Satellites - Digits - WSJBusinesses that want to spy on clients or competitors – to see, for example, how many cars are in a retailer’s parking lot to infer sales volumes.


Possibly, the NSA is redundant because their activities have been privatized. Can't decide which is worse.

Mac Developer: Apple to take 11% of global enterprise market by 2015 thanks to iPhone 'halo effect'

Apple to take 11% of global enterprise market by 2015 thanks to iPhone 'halo effect' - Also a factor are apps, the report says. Cisco, for example, takes advantage of Apple's Developer Program to roll out its own in-house apps for employees. In addition, Apple is making strides in security and encryption that make both iOS and OS X a viable and attractive option for government agencies.


Although I'd like to get back into developing for Windows, I can't figure out what machine I would need to buy in order to install the "free" development tools, nor whether they would allow me to build Win32 apps.

On the Android front, I believe 4.3 was default on my device when I got it shortly before the holidays. At some point in the past 2 weeks, an in-the-background over-the-air update to Chrome has made the browser unusable for one of my key tasks.

Can you imagine working on a corporate help desk and to arrive one morning to learn that 40,000 of your employees are unable to access a critical web portal because some fancy new browser feature that nobody has ever asked for is now installed systemwide without any way to roll back the change? Is anyone awake out there? Bueller? Anyone?

Mac Developer: CEO Gabe Newell explains why Valve created Steam Machines | GamesBeat | Games | by Dean Takahashi

CEO Gabe Newell explains why Valve created Steam Machines | GamesBeat | Games | by Dean Takahashi - Gabe Newell has been the de facto face of PC gaming for years. But now the Valve CEO is the face of one of the greatest threats Microsoft is facing to its Windows PC business.


I'm sure it looks appealing, but increasing control is never a real solution. It just leads to Orwellian consequences.

Hackers continue to tweak Apple's obsolete iOS 3.1.3 for legacy iPhones, iPods - Even as Apple's first- and second-generation iPhone and iPod touch gain "vintage" status, intrepid programming group "whited00r" is working to bring many of iOS's latest features, like Control Center, to the geriatric devices.


A curious nostalgia.
