Mac Developer: Why the Mac App Sandbox makes me sad | Naming Things
Why the Mac App Sandbox makes me sad | Naming Things: "Apple announced today that, starting in March 2012, all apps on the Mac App Store will be required to run in the so-called ‘App Sandbox’."
The value of the Mac App Store is a centralized clearing house for fun Mac Apps. The downside is that by centralizing __anything__ the security vulnerabilities are also brought into a peculiar focus.
I, for one, want the Mac/iOS platforms to be as successful as possible. Success means widespread adoption and widespread adoption means adopting modern security measures.
