Apple’s Media Mastery

Seeing Through the Illusion: Understanding Apple’s Mastery of the Media by 9to5Mac is a long but interesting piece on Apple's mastery of the media.

The Keyboards are Coming…

The keyboards are coming…

I've only recently begun using TextExpander. But, I've been using keyboard expanders for a long, long time now. Heck, my use pre-dates Mac OS X.

So, TextExpander is coming to iOS 8 via a keyboard.

Find my iPhone Attempt Rates Not Limited

If you saw Jennifer Lawrence naked recently, it may be because of a simple security hole that Apple has since fixed: This could be the iCloud flaw that led to celebrity photos being leaked (Update: Apple is investigating).

Update: never mind.

Ransomware

Android Phones Hit by 'Ransomware'

You are guilty of child porn, child abuse, zoophilia or sending out bulk spam. You are a criminal. The Federal Bureau of Investigation has locked you out of your phone and the only way to regain access to all your data is to pay a few hundred dollars.

That message — or variations of it — has popped up on hundreds of thousands of people's Android devices in just the last month. The message claims to be from the F.B.I., or cybersecurity firms, but is in fact the work of Eastern European hackers who are hijacking Android devices with a particularly pernicious form of malware, dubbed "ransomware" because it holds its victims' devices hostage until they pay a ransom.

Things That Will Last on the Internet Are Not Owned

inessential: Waffle on Social Media

I’ve heard blogs classified as a type of social media. Maybe that’s true, and maybe not — I don’t care.

Read the rest, though. It's short, and I almost blockquoted the whole thing, but that just felt wrong.

GateKeeper Changes in 10.9.5

Michael Tsai - Blog - Major Changes to Gatekeeper in Mac OS X 10.9.5

I'd share the results of the script but I'm not sure it did much to work, as Safari 7.1 shows version 1, along with every other application.

Our application, Analyzr, should be ready.

Apple University

Inside Apple’s Internal Training Program

In a class at the company’s internal training program, the so-called Apple University, the instructor likened the 11 lithographs that make up Picasso’s “The Bull” to the way Apple builds its smartphones and other devices. The idea: Apple designers strive for simplicity just as Picasso eliminated details to create a great work of art.

Steven P. Jobs established Apple University as a way to inculcate employees into Apple’s business culture and educate them about its history, particularly as the company grew and the tech business changed. Courses are not required, only recommended, but getting new employees to enroll is rarely a problem.

How to Be Polite

How to Be Polite

People silently struggle from all kinds of terrible things. They suffer from depression, ambition, substance abuse, and pretension. They suffer from family tragedy, Ivy-League educations, and self-loathing. They suffer from failing marriages, physical pain, and publishing. The good thing about politeness is that you can treat these people exactly the same. And then wait to see what happens. You don’t have to have an opinion. You don’t need to make a judgment. I know that doesn’t sound like liberation, because we live and work in an opinion-based economy. But it is. Not having an opinion means not having an obligation. And not being obligated is one of the sweetest of life’s riches.

Yeah. That's gonna be tough for me… :-P
