Tides Turning

יום שבת, ינואר 10, 2009

I find it somewhat funny to see how tides are turning. Apple used to be the medias darling,it was touted as innovative and cool while Microsoft was old and boring…These days, it seems that tides are starting to turn as all of a sudden Apple is no longer treated as nicely as it used to be. Take a look at the following video by the Onion: Apple Introduces Revolutionary New Laptop With No Keyboard   Will this eventually also affect consumer perception?

Microsoft and Apple co-operating on ActiveSync

יום שישי, מרץ 7, 2008

Wow-this is a surprise,or is it? iPhone is cool. iPhone wants to go enterprise.

Adding ActiveSync to the mix opens a whole new world before the iPhone and connects a large number of iPhone owners (and potential owners) to Microsoft infrastructures that control the enterprise environment...

iPhone runs everything as root?

יום רביעי, אוקטובר 3, 2007

This might be somewhat old but it still strikes me as odd. It seems that every processon the iPhone runs as root, which basically means that if one process is breached it willhave full access to the whole system. When looking at this situation, on one hand you might be confident that your softwarehas no security flaw, thus you have nothing to worry about or you have made a mistake.A process/user should not run with higher privileges then the ones he really needs, evenadministrators should be limited- if they need to use their admin privileges it should bedone...

iPhone software unlock

יום שבת, אוגוסט 25, 2007

Many people were disappointed by the fact that the iPhone could only be used with onecarrier,not only did this limit US owners to a specific carrier it also made it virtually impossiblefor anyone outside the US to use the iPhone (think about the cost...). A crack (or unlock) was inevitable. A hardware unlock surfaced a few days ago, yet it wasn'tfor the faint hearted. Yesterday (or so it seems) the first report of a software unlock finally surfaced on the Engadgetblog. A few hours later a second unlock was reported.   Z-time to play...;)

Official iPhone Tool-A paperclip?!?!

יום שבת, אוגוסט 4, 2007

MacGyver, look out, someone stole your tool of trade.... Now seriously,I can't say if this story is true or a fabrication but nevertheless it's still funny:The web has pictures, and a story, saying that Apple has sent out a wrapped paper clip asa tool for iPhone. On one hand,you have to give it to them, you can never find one when you need one,on theother hand it is really funny...Take a look at the pictures on flickr and the story on Engadget.
