  • Apple currently limiting M1 iPad Pro apps to 5GB RAM each

    I assume that iOS doesn't have any kind of paging mechanism to stop apps being killed when they go to background?

  • Facebook sponsored research paper lambasts Apple's iOS 14.5 privacy

    I'd assumed that companies like Facebook would soon find away around Apple's ATT. Judging by how much they're crying about it, perhaps not. :D

    Yeah because ransomware didn’t exist until cryptocurrency was invented.  
    Ransomware attacks have exploded since the cryptocurrency became the ransom payment method of choice for criminals. The amount being paid out per attack has tripled in the last year alone and even those organisations who haven't suffered a successful attack are spending millions on prevention.

    Without cryptocurrency, criminals make fewer attacks, demand less money and are far more easily caught.

  • Tesla stops accepting BitCoin, nearly entire cryptocurrency market hammered

    99% of all cryptocurrency is transparent to track, in the blockchain spirit. The American Dollar is and always as been by far the currency of choice for crime. you cannot easily trace dollar bills in those briefs, but you can know everything about every transaction and trace every satoshi/cent of bitcoin ever. at all times.
    That's not true at all.

    Ransomware attacks are one the greatest threats in world today and are only viable thanks to the anonymous nature of cryptocurrencies. While a Bitcoin transactions record the wallet addresses, a wallet address alone does not provide any identifiable detail of the owner.

    Cash is far easier to trace; through fingerprints, fibres and serial numbers. Cash is also a lot harder to store and hide.
