Here's Mister Bill Gates getting up to leave after his interview on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. Said interview was not, as some might think, a crass promotional stunt made possible by Bill's connections with the uncomfortable suits at Viacom, but purely an informal chitchat about nothing in particular. Bill's new product wasn't even mentioned in the interview and no attention was drawn to it. Gates just wanted to show the world what a genuinely nice person he was. It was all completely above board.

The dangers of the 'sudo fun' exploit remain remote but there's no point in not being safe. A graphic look at the 'Resolve Path' ACP Text Service in action with CLIX 1.8.

ACP Text Services: Resolve Path 2007-02-03
Pursuant to the 'Sudo Fun' discussion on $PATH hijacking the ACP Text Services now offer the ability to resolve paths in command lines so you can see where things are going before they get there. It's perhaps the safest way to go - possibly safer than even Terminal. Select your text; hit the keyboard shortcut ⌘~; it's done.

Darren Waters: Crook or Idiot Extraordinaire? 2007-01-26
What's amazing with all morons (crooks) is that they always assume everyone else is as stupid as they are. Which in the case of Darren Waters is assuredly a 99.99999999999% fatally flawed mistake.

Apple Spin™ in action? Excerpts from the Apple marketing handbook.

The Canary Trap, the Leak, and the Mole 2007-01-09
'A backdoor was prepared to be included with the exploit. The potential leak sources would download the backdoor, and as expected, start shouting on forums, random blogs and other Mac churches, saying we were installing rootkits.'

Jeffrey Czerniak 2007-01-09
It's a real paranoid life to be a fanboy in today's enlightened world.

MOAB Drop Zero Day on Stunned Fanboy World 2007-01-05
Everyone expected the Month of Apple Bugs to turn up some pretty nasty things but few expected show stoppers like this.

A Month of Apple Fanboys 2007-01-02
The Month of Apple Bugs has barely begun and the Apple fanboys are already hysterical, their behaviour more of a news item than the bugs themselves. It's also a wake-up call for potential switchers.

Enhancements vs Security 2006-12-01
Apple's dismissal of the 'InputManagers hole' as an issue of enhancement rather than security at first caught security researchers off guard. For the umpteenth time. As the same hole's been filed as a bug for years and dismissed the same way each time. But happily The Technological are now able to show why Apple were in fact correct all along. Put simply: Apple are professionals. They're not alarmists. And time and again history finds the great corporate entities speaking words of calm when everyone else is running around like the posters at the Mac Rumors forums.

F-INSECURE Spreading FUD Since '94 2006-12-01
It would seem there are others who find the antics of F-Secure a bit like - er, antics.

product-security@apple.com 2006-11-30
The 'InputManagers' security hole exploited by the likes of ichatHack, mailHack, safariHack, Oompa Loompa, InqTana, and iAdware is not a security issue - it's an enhancement issue. Don't believe it? You read it here.

The Not So Sinister Finisterre 2006-11-30
The reason security research on OS X is so interesting is that Apple take the injudicious move of branching off from tried and true Unix code to create something they're rather reluctant to call Unix anymore. Unix has had a good thirty years to mature and more researchers inspecting it by an order of magnitude. Apple use a closed source model and they're venturing out into new territory where the risk for exploits grows geometrically. And they're carrying with them legacy ideas from the birth of NeXT which predates the birth of the web. And they don't listen.

Fucking Insecure 2006-11-28
When it comes to chops in OS X and Unix that's exactly what Kamil and his friends at F-Secure are. And you know you don't have to wait long for the Cooperites to pick up the ball and run with it.

Microsoft XMLHTTP ActiveX Zero-Day Exploit 2006-11-05
It's yet another Windows zero-day exploit. Meaning no one - least of all Microsoft - knows where it comes from or how it works. And it affects nearly all Windows systems. But Windows is otherwise almost as secure as Unix. Of course it is.

He is corpulent and slovenly with long scraggly hair, strands of which he has been known to pluck out and toss into a bowl of soup he is eating. His own website says he engages in 'nasal sex' with flowers. And though he fancies himself a crusader for tech 'freedom', he labours mightily to control how others think, speak and act, arguing in Orwellian doublespeak that his rules are necessary for people to be 'free'. He's Richard Stallman and he's bringing down the work of giants around him.

The Object Oriented Cake 2006-08-14
I finally got to watch the NeXTSTEP 3 Release Demo the other night. People have been pointing me to the link for ages. I couldn't get this equipment to work and so had to forego it. I told everyone 'been there done that' as NeXT Software about the same time had given me the complete kit with NS for 486, NeXTSTEP the Movie, the Garfinkel book, the works. We'd all seen what this blazing platform could do, so no one expected much new from the clip. I was in for a surprise.

OS X 10.5 Leopard 2005-04-28
Think Secret were wrong in revealing details of Apple's OS X 10.4 Tiger before its release, but things have changed now: Microsoft are actively campaigning with an operating system that does not exist and may not exist before December 2006 if ever.

Apple Modem Blues 2003-05-05
