Inspired by the Apple II “open” architecture mindset, Fitch proposed a modular approach. He designed a simple hardware “backbone” carrying basic operations and I/O on which the user could add a series of “book” modules, carrying hardware for running Apple II, Mac, UNIX and DOS software, plus other modules with disk drives or networking capabilities.

NSA tools to hack macs https://wikileaks.org/vault7/darkmatter/document/

it looks like those tools have been developed by the NSA. so it is not obvious if Apple have participated in that process at all. also these tools are somehow outdated. #wikileaks #apple #nsa #sonic_screwdriver (this is an allusion to dr. who) #seapea #nightskies #triton #derstarke #efi

բնօրինակ սփիւռքում(եւ մեկնաբանութիւննե՞ր)

through the Apple Music subscription, which I had, Apple now deletes files from its users’ computers. When I signed up for Apple Music, iTunes evaluated my massive collection of Mp3s and WAV files, scanned Apple’s database for what it considered matches, then removed the original files from my internal hard drive. REMOVED them. Deleted. If Apple Music saw a file it didn’t recognize—which came up often, since I’m a freelance composer and have many music files that I created myself—it would then download it to Apple’s database, delete it from my hard drive, and serve it back to me when I wanted to listen, just like it would with my other music files it had deleted.
