I doubt this will have much impact. FCP is pretty well flushed out now (compared to launch) and I think the team of people still working on it are going to be fine maintaining and updating it.   Apple didn't nosedive after Jobs left, so why should FCP (and related software) die because Ubillos leaves? I'm sure this was known well in advance and Apple took steps to ensure a smooth transition for the team (and whoever heads it up in the future).
Meaningless just like Google Fiber. Designed to make Google look good (marketing gimmick). This is no different than a store offering a product below cost (loss leader) to get people in the store. If Google wants to shake up Internet or wireless they need to make it widely available. Limiting it to a small number of users (Nexus 6) or communities (Five) doesn't benefit enough people, nor will it do much to cause existing providers to be more competitive.
 Not accurate. Samsung uses off-the-shelf ARM processor designs like the A53/A57 in the new S6. Apple makes custom processors that run ARMv8 code. They are two completely different types of licenses from ARM. Apple processors are far ahead of anything by ARM (and by extension, Samsung).
 Of course they're not "working out of a basement". There are so many other issues I have with this that make me skeptical. - Would Apple even allow someone to download that many Apps? At what point do they realize this isn't normal behavior and investigate? Apple must monitor traffic and a large amount going to a certain IP should raise the alarm.- How are they downloading them? Surely they don't have a bunch of people using iTunes to download them. Which makes me think...
 I did read their blog. I don't have a problem with their methodology of scanning an App - this is how virus scanners work. What I find unbelievable is that they claim to have downloaded virtually all the Apps in the App Store. I'm curious how they would even do that, and also curious how much money that would cost them. Also curious how they could download them all fast enough to even keep up with updates. How much bandwidth would that even require?
First off, this isn't Apple's problem. It's a problem with code provided by AFNetworking (as pointed out by leavingthebigG).   Second, this company (SourceDNA) claims they have the ability to scan EVERY single App in the App Store to search for such flaws.   I'm REALLY curious how they can make such a claim.
Waaaaaiiiiiit a second. I thought the Apple Watch was a failure? What's with all the posters talking about their orders being processed? Must be Apple fanboys¡
 I don't think they'd use any smartphone at all. Long before we had smartphones organized criminals or terrorists had no troubles communicating. Either behind closed doors or by using simple pre-arranged terms when talking on any phone (which they assumed would be recorded). I think they'd use burner phones they picked up at 7-11 for simple communication, and anything that was truly sensitive would simply be passed along in person.
Who cares about celebrities wearing the Apple Watch. . . . . . Didn't anyone see the new Star Wars trailer?
Ignorant of production planning? Why does Apple have to change fabs at the last minute?Most likely is Apple had both TSMC and Samsung/GF fabbing the A9 and have been monitoring yields for months now. After seeing the results they made a decision as to production spit. So Apple can make a last minute decision based on months of planning/production/testing.
