Aren't they working with WebKit2 now? I haven't done the nightly downloads in a while, so I'm sort of out of the loop. Seems to me that Apple could do more, yet isn't. Who is that NSA guy anyway? Has he actually started work?
Was Miller's the only successful breakthrough? Maybe Apple will collect all of the hacks and do all of the patches before releasing an update. I think it's time for that new security expert Apple hired from the NSA to hand Miller his @$$ with an OS and Safari that Miller can't break through. Hasn't happened yet.
I would just like to know why it is that these people are so good at finding these holes, and yet Apple seems so bad at spotting them beforehand? Is it that the people in security at Apple are not looking thoroughly enough? I know that Apple has a real-world track record that is admirable, but are the people who actually write this software not the least bit shamed by the fact that a couple of people can compromise their system within seconds? I know they just hired a...
Apple already bought Siri. That's a full voice control app on the iPhone. It would seem to me that they would have also acquired the talented people who created it and would already have a leg-up on voice control front. I use Siri often and it is great at what it does. I'm surprised they haven't done something with it by now. If they have, I haven't seen it.
It really depends on what you actually want. There are people who will spin off this whole "if you wait for the next model, you'll be waiting forever." Those people are people obviously not looking for specific features. I held off buying the first generation iPad because I didn't like the screen. I have better than 20/20 vision and can easily see the pixels on the screen. While I can also see the pixels on my MBP and on my 30" Cinema Display, they are generally...
I hope they'll allow us the option of setting the background for all Finder windows as that cool new dark gray fabric they have. That white background is just too bright for my liking. Otherwise, I'm really liking what I'm seeing here.
After some messing around, I've come to the preliminary conclusion that once the box is checked that new files created won't have an extension. That doesn't change any of the old files though, imported from other computers. It's a process, I guess, for someone that doesn't like file extensions. I'll deal with it. I even tried using an Automator workflow for it. No dice. At least your system doesn't have them.
Oh, I understand what you're saying there, I'm simply wondering which way they'll go with it. A4 sounds good. I'm just curious if they'll simply call the chip the A4 regardless of the changes made to it, sort of like they call a Mac Pro a Mac Pro regardless of internal revisions.
I'd already done that one. :-) It still doesn't default the system into not showing file extensions. I understand the reason for the OS needing them, I'd just rather not "see" them. As it is, I still have to go through and every time a new file is created, go and hit CMD+I and manually "hide" the file extension. It's just one of those little annoying things I wish were easy to fix. Finder Preferences ought to have a box to check that says "Never display file...
What does everyone think Apple will do regarding the naming convention currently used, A4? Will Apple keep the A4 name and just change the model numbers, or will Apple bump the number up one with each revision? For some reason, I rather like the A4 moniker. The prospect of two cores in the next version is very exciting, and hopefully the GPU will benefit from an upgrade as well (if they go to a much more pixel-dense screen).
