Explaining the iPhone’s #error53, and why it puts Apple between conspiracy and rock-hard security | The Overspill: when there's more that I want to say
"pretty confident in saying that no other company is doing as many things across as many hardware and software platforms. Google is huge, but doesn’t make hardware in anything like that volume; Microsoft is huge too, but doesn’t make hardware in any appreciable volume. Apple does the whole thing, including chip design. The combination of hardware and software challenge in adding just one new feature to any individual device line is mind-boggling, because you have to consider how it’s going to affect everything else.

In that context, an engineering team working away on an improved TouchID system which authenticates against tampering probably thought they were doing just the right thing. Instead, they were throwing their retail and PR people into a media storm. The size of the teacup is yet to be determined."

Aleks Krotoski: A narrow approach to broadband in Britain — FT
"On a personal level, irked by the ubiquity of digitalia, you might reasonably decide to indulge in a detox, sacrificing your smartphone and unplugging the household hub for a week. You would, though, still profit from the myriad advantages conferred by the internet, from train services to traffic control."

Wolff: Guardian bet shows digital risks
"In a way, the Guardian is the purest play in digital news and advertising, rather to digital what Cuba has been to socialism. Its likely path to cutting costs will be to double down on digital and abandon its print business, which, while it does not lose as much money as its digital side, yet has more costs. In some continuing negotiation with obsolescence, while the paper will not make more, it will try to lose less.

Anyway, in the Guardian, the dream that so many of us have had of free information, unlimited audiences and a sustaining new business model, whatever that might be, probably comes to an end."
