Don't worry, once they've used you as a beachhead into requiring the devices for all car insurance, I'm sure there would be no unintended consequences of setting a precedent for allowing your insurance company to monitor all sorts of things that are going on about your car.
No, I agree with that statement. I just don't agree that separating the app procurement from the OS makes it any less about the OS/platform/whatever, because the OS dictates how you get them.
in regards to iOS, the store and the OS are inseparable
in regards to Android, the OS allowing side-loading is the avenue that allows malware to enter
technically, it might matter as to if you say it's an OS issue or a "platform" issue, but practically, the nature of the OSes make the difference on this issue moot
So, the iOS solution is to not _let_ users install apps from untrustworthy sources.
Android doesn't have a solution... so... there's that.
How is that not an iOS vs Android issue?
That's why the change occurs on Sunday morning, not Monday...
AAC is no more "proprietary" than MP3.
Somebody please tell the iPhone dev team that baseband security is so bad. They've been terrible at finding and exploiting these problems since the A5 baseband in the iPhone 4S.
Probably the larger issue that drives this is that they can do *some* kind of check on the system before they hand over the BluRay decryption keys. That way they have some leverage over somebody who wouldâ¦ I don't knowâ¦ get the master key and use it on their BluRay player binary.
Well there's not really an argument as to if a giant picture of Saturn is cool or worthy of attention on

Easy portability from OS X to Linux/FreeBSD.
Many programmers and server admins moved to OS X as their desktop machine because of its Unix base. You can have a nice desktop, commercial app support, and not be far away from a command line environment.
If GNUStep can get compatibility, then developers can cross target OS X and Linux with their apps.
Windows has nothing in common with Linux. All you're doing by throwing money at Wine is perpetuating the Windows Way Of Programming. At least with GNUStep it starts with the assumption of Linux or BSD Unix.
I know you want to be like x86 != ARM, which is fair, but UEFI == UEFI
It would be great if you could just uncheck a checkbox at boot time, but this standard was made so that you can remove that checkbox and still claim standards compliance. That's the rub.
You're not forced to install antivirus programs nor is there a scheme to prevent you from removing them.
I'm not speculating about "people," I'm talking about the "people" accused of turning their brains off when Secure Boot gets brought up. These are the same people who don't like the locked bootloaders on the iPad and especially on Android phones and tablets.
