That's ok. I only started managing typesetting and publication systems in 1978, moving to Mac-based systems with Postscript imagesetters in 1989 so I really don't have that much background in anything. I also fought Adobe for years when managing corporate licenses, tried to keep my artists and photographers happy with features Adobe had and didn't have, as well as the reduction of professional photographers once they started letting everyone carry a camera at work. The...
"However, we heard healthy debate on how steep the adoption curve will be in the physical world (many were more bullish on Apple Pay's prospects for in-app purchases), given low merchant acceptance, and how bank friendly future iterations of Apple Pay might be as it gains scale," Huang said.   Were their any Canadians or European people in attendance? I thought NFC is already something they all use. I guess it's just the mindless American "Money" people who are back in...
Quick answer, no to CMYK although you can define a color in CMYK. Checking on defining PMS colors. From Pixelmator help (I'm not making a judgement on this, only reporting on what's there): Understanding color modes and color spaces The concept of the color model describes how colors in images are stored and processed. Pixelmator supports the RGB color model, which means that every dot in an image is described by three colors - red, green and blue. The RGB color model is...
Jokes aside, has Adobe updated their apps to Yosemite? Do they include any of the new options Pixelmator does (Handoff, 5K support and iCloud Drive)? I use Pixelmator and Acorn and haven't touched Photoshop in years. No, I no longer deal with "professional" publications but I can do many of the things I used to do in Photoshop for a whole lot less money and agony waiting for Adobe to fix things.
No. There have been similar attacks when programmers insert malware inside pirated applications. Apple has done the correct thing in revoking the developer's certificate so it won't install/launch unless someone has changed their security preferences. As with almost all malware on all platforms, if you can get the user to install the malware through any type of app, there's not much that can be done. I see malware as being something that can get installed without a user's...
"first infecting Macs by inserting trojan software through repackaged OS X apps,..."   If you have OSX configured properly to not allow unsigned apps, then they wouldn't be installed. These are repackaged apps so unless someone re-signed them with an authentic signature, they would get installed. Of course, I wonder how many people turn this feature off. As far as it infecting iOS devices, that's something enterprise IT personnel have to be aware of since they are given...
I've always wondered about how open-source code can get such great reviews. Just because lots of people have access to it doesn't mean it's that secure. What it does mean is that it never gets finished. Apple takes the best of open-source then adds its own security to it, making for a better product. As for lack of email encryption, Yosemite makes signing and encryption a lot easier but Apple fails to provide one thing that would easily make everything work better, an...
 I believe the class-action suit isn't against the stores not accepting ApplePay as much as it's against MCX for banding together independent businesses in a type of cartel that outlaws other types of payment. Individual businesses can determine what types of payment other than cash they want to accept, but I don't believe a group of businesses can jointly discriminate against specific payment types. There is a big difference.
I thought at one time the OSX install process set up the initial, admin account, then suggested/required the setup of a non-admin, regular user account. This is how it should be done, otherwise OSX is setup exactly like Windows, which we all complain about being easy to install software without authentication. It's how I do it but that comes from years of managing government systems. To configure sudo for a non-admin account, you also need to specifically edit the sudo...
I agree. If VoLTE only works with LTE data networks, then it does nothing for me. I barely have 1 bar of cellular reception at my house and no LTE. I'd rather they work on VoWiFi (I know that's VOIP). Even if they get both of these to work, many of my calls are to people who aren't on cell phones (yes, there are a lot of those people plus businesses).
