More on Apple’s iPhone Backdoor

In this post, I’ll collect links on Apple’s iPhone backdoor for scanning CSAM images. Previous links are here and here. Apple says that hash collisions in its CSAM detection system were expected, and not a concern. I’m not convinced that this secondary system was originally part of the design, since it wasn’t discussed in the original specification.

The US competition regulator argues that Facebook repeatedly failed to develop meaningful innovations on its mobile app. Instead, it acquired comp...

The Story of U.S. Business Is the Story of Real Estate

THE STORY of American business is the story of real estate — a story of more than 200 years of claiming, seizing, developing, settling, and speculating in vast areas of land. Even though business histories often give more attention to the history of the manufacturing industry, real estate has been the more dominant factor. Wealthy colonials organized massive land companies well before the American Revolution. Land had been the source of power and wealth in the Old World, and so for Europeans, t...

California Living

A few photos around mostley Peidmont, a nice section of Oakland. The entrance into an Oakland restaurant called Nido. Our drinks. Our meal. Lots of lovely parks around. I hope the trees make it through the drought. I liked these succulents. They looked like they had been cut in half. At the entrance of a park where there once was a fancy hotel. Art work by my grandson, Nathaniel, after a discussiom about pointalisim.
