Microsoft employees protest US Army contracthttps://thehill.com/policy/technology/431213-microsoft-employees-protest-technology-contract-with-us-army-designed-to
Excerpt from that article "A group of more than 50 Microsoft employees have signed on to a letter protesting the company's $479 million technology contract with the U.S. Army, saying Microsoft is providing the military with tools "designed to help people kill."
Approximately 50 Microsoft employees out of 134944 total is 0.04%.
Nowhere does the article mention around 'around the world'.

carnegie said:People generally can't be held liable (e.g., through a civil action) for (negligent) omissions which lead to harm suffered by others. But there are exceptions to that general rule.
I don't know all the details of this situation, and he's in Germany so applicable principles might be very different, but I wouldn't rule out the possibility that he could face civil liability if he didn't take reasonable action (e.g. revealing details of the exploit to Apple) to mitigate the risk of harm to others. Again, the general rule would protect him from such liability. But I can think of exceptions which could possibly apply in this case. So it's possible - though I don't mean to suggest likely, I just don't know enough to make such an assessment - that he's now been made aware that he could face civil liability if he doesn't disclose the details of the exploit to Apple and, as a result of Apple not being able to address the problem as quickly, third parties are harmed.

Apple Watch is great smartwatch but without soul. This would never happen under Steve Jobs.
I think that watch faces are the apps for smartwatches and to cut off developers from developing custom watch faces is similar to cut off developers from developing apps for iPhones...
Has Apple officially discontinued the iPad mini ? I bought one and it is great on the train commute to work and holding up in bed watching movies doesn't tire the arms. If an iPad mini Pro (works with Apple pencil) came out then I would probably update.
