8 reasons we love the Last Hacker (& a free event where you can meet him yourself) | VentureBeat | Dev | by J. O'Dell
That is exactly why we’ve invited Stallman to appear at a one-night-only engagement to talk about copyright and community. On May 2, 2014, at 6 p.m., he’ll be speaking at the Automattic Lounge in San Francisco, and you’re invited to attend free of charge!"


It's been a really, really long time since I met Stallman handing out his Fanged Apple badges at the Software Development conference back in, hmmm. '89? '90?

Mac Developer: How Apple dodged the Heartbleed bullet

How Apple dodged the Heartbleed bullet - When it announced plans to deprecate OpenSSL in June 2011, Apple wasn't aware of the Heartbleed flaw because it didn't yet exist. However, the company was aware of other problems with OpenSSL (libcrypto), a security toolkit Apple began using within the Common Data Security Architecture more than a decade ago.


OK, fair enough. But go ahead and try creating a fresh implementation of SSL without the source code from OpenSSL as a reference.

Mac Developer: 85% of Windows XP users say they're not upgrading, antivirus company finds | VentureBeat | Security | by Devindra Hardawar

85% of Windows XP users say they're not upgrading, antivirus company finds | VentureBeat | Security - Only 15 percent of Avast customers surveyed said they planned to upgrade from XP, even though Microsoft officially ended support for the aging OS last week.
The opportunity here is to act like a grown-up software company (like IBM) and support your operating systems until your customers don't need it anymore.

How's that go again? Those that don't know history are doomed to repeat it? IBM. Dominant for 30 years.
BBC News - Half-century milestone for IBM mainframes - The first System 360 mainframe was unveiled on 7 April 1964 and its arrival marked a break with all general purpose computers that came before.

Mac Developer: Play Nintendo DS games on non-jailbroken devices with the nds4ios emulator | 9to5Mac

Play Nintendo DS games on non-jailbroken devices with the nds4ios emulator | 9to5Mac
The app gets around Apple’s restrictions by using an enterprise provisioning profile reports TourchArcade. This is normally meant for businesses to distribute apps to company employees, but nds4ios is exploiting it as a way to enable widespread app distribution. "


I'm probably not alone in thinking that the App Store is now completely overcrowded with junk that would likely not be clogging the pipes if there were simpler ways to do ad-hoc distribution.

Mac Developer: How a Chinese Tech Firm Became the NSA’s Surveillance Nightmare | Threat Level | WIRED

How a Chinese Tech Firm Became the NSA’s Surveillance Nightmare | Threat Level | WIRED
Software-defined networks will open the development of software networking solutions to hundreds of other companies and independent developers to build applications and services that communicate with hardware made by Cisco, Juniper and other companies, much the way thousands of app developers currently create differing programs to run on Apple devices today."


In a diverse garden grows a healthy ecosystem.

Mac Developer: Analysis affirms Apple's A7 processor closer to a desktop CPU than regular mobile chip

Analysis affirms Apple's A7 processor closer to a desktop CPU than regular mobile chip - When it debuted in the iPhone 5s last fall, Apple's custom A7 processor was said to have caught the chipmaking industry off guard, sending competitors into an alleged "panic." One unnamed person at Qualcomm reportedly said that the A7 left the company "slack-jawed, and stunned, and unprepared."


My favorite days are filled with undeniably great news for Apple Developers.
