The physics community has been abuzz with speculation ever since excited researchers affiliated with — but not directly involved in — the project spilt the beans on Twitter.
Cors in general is broken in general and for numerous reasons but on the client side more than server side.
Cors should be good. Cors could be good. But its primitive, difficult to write with when dealing with things such as Hybrid mobile development. If Web Services need a header acceptance policy solution then drop the same origin policy anyway and make it a totally separate thing. Make it so same origin resource sharing on the local side is blocked by default with an established white-listing system in place the also records management of how the resources are used would be even better!
You can get some of that that with the inspection tools on Chromium now but it would be far better if it was more definitive. E.G LocalStorage we could know when requests are made rather than just seeing the variables change.
Firing sun-powered laser beams through hyperspace destroying all republic worlds in one shot! Woohoo!
Just as if Episode 1 2 3 did not exist? That's how i see it. They never needed the republic before, why did Lucas put it there in the first place?
Probably a good excuse to dump the web as it's just shocking how many JS trackers are getting at your stats with every page visit. Though heading to the App store to serve web content means providers just get more "detailed" stats about their users. So Kobayashi Maru there right.
I can say Crosswalk is really the step up that's needed for both iOS and Android and wIth ECMA being enforced with more and more browsers over time. The problem is just that its 40 meg to download.
I can see this AMP project as good pretext for quick and instant functionality, though from downloading the examples and reading a bit about it. It really needs a lot more work before it would become useful to me or any of the projects i'm presently on.
People bitching about mobile websites are in for a real shock when Google Cardboard and Accelerometer tech comes into play for the web. Just imagine looking at a website menu items by simply shifting the pitch and angle of your phone. I'd say 6-12 months before that happens. And with Apple being supported by Cardboard I'm surprised it already hasn't happened! But even without cardboard, Accelerometer navigated website should really be the next thing.
I'd say its not a fair declare fault until we know with 100% certainty that it was in fact a "hack" of some sorts. Lets say it was an inside job and a simple case of data theft in the workplace. Even the NSA cant guard against such things (Snowden). Of course you can permission control data, etc. But there is always a small few that has complete access.
Besides, in many countries what you say is already in place. Under things such as the Corporations Act. Directors are held liable for the companies behavior. The problem being nobody prosecutes these laws. I'd go as far to say that Executives having knowledge of security issues and not acting is negligence in its most simplest form.
When all else fails, read the instructions.
