Mac Developer: AT&T CEO won’t join Tim Cook in fight against encryption backdoors | Ars Technica

AT&T CEO won’t join Tim Cook in fight against encryption backdoors | Ars Technica “I don’t think it is Silicon Valley’s decision to make about whether encryption is the right thing to do,” Stephenson said in an interview with The Wall Street Journal. “I understand [Apple CEO] Tim Cook’s decision, but I don’t think it’s his decision to make.”
AT&T, a once-mighty all-American company.

Mac Developer: Apple making sparse use of Swift in its own apps, engineer claims

Apple making sparse use of Swift in its own apps, engineer claims The Calculator app is the only part of iOS 9.2 that includes any Swift code, Ryan Olson noted in a blog post. It is at least said to be nearly "pure" Swift, with only two of 22 classes written in Apple's previous favorite language, Objective-C.
An immature language with no stable ABI? What's not to love? This language is for novices. One day, it will be for engineers.

Just to be clear, it's not the only new language with problems. I abandoned my experiments with Scala after I discovered the compiler couldn't parse a very simple and valid operator overloading construct. I'm sure there is someone out there who is excited to debug the compiler of a new language. My priorities lie elsewhere.

Mac Developer: How malware developers could bypass Mac’s Gatekeeper without really trying | Ars Technica

How malware developers could bypass Mac’s Gatekeeper without really trying | Ars Technica

The exploit works with Apple-trusted executable apps that are bundled with, and are programmed to execute, one or more additional apps. The hack works by renaming the Apple-trusted file but otherwise making no other changes to it. Wardle then packages it inside an Apple disk image that contains any executables he wants. Gatekeeper inspects only the first executable file and allows the remaining bundled apps to be executed with no questions asked.
Hmmmmm..

White House official responds to 'El Chapo' interview - CNNPolitics.com White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough as well as several presidential candidates denounced comments made by drug kingpin Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman in an exclusive interview with Sean Penn for Rolling Stone.
The trillion-dollar National Security surveillance infrastructure wasn't able to locate El Chapo, but Sean Penn was. Hmmmm.

Mac Developer: Juniper drops NSA-developed code following new backdoor revelations | Ars Technica

Juniper drops NSA-developed code following new backdoor revelations | Ars Technica Juniper Networks, which last month made the startling announcement its NetScreen line of firewalls contained unauthorized code that can surreptitiously decrypt traffic sent through virtual private networks, said it will remove a National Security Agency-developed function widely suspected of also containing a backdoor for eavesdropping.
What part of the phrase "eminent domain" don't you understand? It's like the Trainman in the The Matrix...

Mac Developer: Android N switches to OpenJDK, Google tells Oracle it is protected by the GPL | Ars Technica

Android N switches to OpenJDK, Google tells Oracle it is protected by the GPL | Ars Technica Google told VentureBeat that it in "Android N," the next major version of Android, it is swapping Android's Java libraries from its own Apache Harmony-based implementation to one based on Oracle's OpenJDK—yes that Oracle, the same company suing Google.
Not sure what Oracle is upset about since Android is a major boon to the Java ecosystem. Under the Kleenex marketing principle they're crazy to upset the balance. What would be bad for Oracle is for Android to move to some other technology base. Like C# and the managed runtime, for example.

This is a sad legacy for SUN because Scott McNealy stood on his soapbox for years criticizing closed systems in favor of the open system model that SUN was all about.

Mac Developer: Software with the most vulnerabilities in 2015: Mac OS X, iOS, and Flash | VentureBeat | Security | by Emil Protalinski

Software with the most vulnerabilities in 2015: Mac OS X, iOS, and Flash | VentureBeat | Security | by Emil Protalinski Which software had the most publicly disclosed vulnerabilities this year? The winner is none other than Apple’s Mac OS X, with 384 vulnerabilities. The runner-up? Apple’s iOS, with 375 vulnerabilities.
I guess it's not always good to be in the lead of Microsoft.
