Google+ Photos Chrome app mysteriously starts working on the Mac

Back in July, the Google+ Photos app for Google Chrome appeared in the Chrome Web Store, and was installable on the Mac but wouldn't work upon launching. At that time, it had been soft launched for the Chromebook Pixel about a month previously – though worked on other Chromebooks – and since then the listing has been disabled. However, if you managed to get it installed already, it appears to have magically begun working, and if you didn't get it installed there is still a way to try it out with a little Chrome trickery.

Jekyll apps: How they attack iOS security and what you need to know about them

Today researchers Tielei Wang, Kangjie Lu, Long Lu, Simon Chung, and Wenke Lee from Georgia Tech gave a talk at the 22nd USENIX Security Symposium and revealed the details of how they got a so-called "Jekyll app" through the App Store approval process and into a position where it could perform malicious tasks. Their methods highlight several challenges to the effectiveness of the Apple's App Store review process as well as security in iOS. The researchers immediately pulled their app from the App Store after downloading it to their test devices, but demonstrated techniques that could be used by others to also sneak malware past Apple's reviewers.

The details of Apple's app review process are not publicly known, but aside from a few notable exceptions it has been largely successful in keeping malware away from iOS devices. The basic premise of a Jekyll app is to submit a seemingly harmless app to Apple for approval that, once published to the App Store, can be exploited to exhibit malicious behavior. The concept is fairly straightforward, but let's dig in to the details.

Editorial for iPad gets thoroughly reviewed, found to be awesome

Editorial for iPad by OMZ-Software bills itself as powerful markdown editing and workflow automation, and they're absolutely not joking around when they say that. It's a got a full-on Python interpreter built-in, which means if you can script it, you can pretty much do it. How do I know that? Because Federico Viticci has put it through its paces. If you're familiar with Ticci, Editorial for iPad is pretty much the app he was born and bred to review, and this 10k review is pretty much his Pietà. Seriously, I have no idea how much espresso had to die for this review to live. From MacStories.net:

The Loop Magazine #8 is here, and check out that cover!

Rather than wait for Jim Dalrymple to call up and "suggest" I get him part two of my series on human interface, I did the smart thing and told him it was almost ready and would be on its way soon. He laughed. Not terrifyingly. And I got it done. Now it's here and Jim surprised me by sticking it on the cover of the The Loop Magazine #8.

Yeah, that'll cost me some Heineken.
