  • Apple escalates legal fight with iOS virtualization tool provider Corellium

    Correlium's attempt to characterize this as "jailbreaking" seems to be misdirection.  If they were buying hardware, jailbreaking it, and then selling those jailbroken devices, they might have a case.  Maybe.  That's not what they're doing, though.  They're replicating the phone, not taking an existing one and modifying it.
    It's virtualization, providing a means to run iOS outside of the phone hardware. It's not useful for creating a new phone or really for using apps w/o one. It's used primarily by security researchers. Apple has acknowledged them before for providing security fixes. 
  • Hands on: Tighten up the creep of Menubar apps in macOS with Bartender 3

    Incredibly useful app. Works very, very well. I have a minimum of items visible in the menu bar and only when something changes will other apps menu bar icons appear. You can buy this directly or get it as part of a Setapp subscription.

    I don't mean to start a pissing match, but are there things VMware can do that Parallels cannot? I use Parallels everyday at work, but I'm just curious as to if one does something better than the other. I'm not necessarily asking which is better, just from anyone who uses both if one does something the others don't. 
    Yes, but probably nothing of interest to you. Most of the benefits to VMware are on the development side. They have better support from third-party and enterprise toolsets (integration with Vagrant, Docker, VMware ESX, etc.) Historically, VMware has been more stable as well. Historically, Parallels has had better Windows graphics performance and support. If you're a software developer (and VirtualBox doesn't work for you), then VMware is the better choice. If you only ever run Windows in a VM to use a few Windows applications, then it doesn't really matter which one you go with.
  • High Sierra runs on all Sierra-capable hardware, starts process to kill 32-bit apps

    Adobe crap is still 32-bit. Not sure about the apps themselves, but the Adobe Desktop and supporting processes are all 32-bit. So is Cisco AnyConnect (VPN client). And so is the Dropbox file system monitor daemon. In other words, yes, there are still a significant number of commonly used tools and third-party system daemons that are 32-bit.
