Tim Cook Honors Steve Jobs’ 59th Birthday: ‘Details Matter, It’s Worth Waiting to Get It Right’
While remembering Jobs’ legacy, Cook may also be indirectly addressing Apple’s lack of significant announcements so far in 2014, reminding his followers of Jobs’ philosophy on making sure all details are taken care of.
Cook has promised that Apple is working on “some really great stuff” in new product categories, with a smart watch and new television-related products topping the list of rumors. With Apple rarely being a company to rush to market, Cook may be quietly asking for patience as the company continues work on its upcoming products and services.
Coincidentally, today also marks the 14th birthday of MacRumors. Founded in February 2000 before the introduction of the iPad, iPhone, and even the iPod and OS X, the site has grown enormously and fostered the creation of our sister sites TouchArcade andAppShopper. As always, we are grateful to our readers, contributors, sponsors, and all those for whom MacRumors is an online home or a regular stop.
Apple Planning Fix for OS X SSL Bug as New Research Reveals iMessage, Other Apps Affected
However, the security flaw, which has been termed “GoToFail” by security specialists due to the improperly used “goto” command that triggers it, may be affecting more than just Safari. Independent privacy researcher Ashkan Soltani has pointed out on his Twitter (viaForbes) that Apple’s vulnerable SSL library is also used by apps including FaceTime, iMessage, Twitter, Calendar, Keynote, Mail, iBooks, Software Update, and more.
Currently, users can check whether or not their computers are affected by the vulnerability by visiting gotofail.com in Safari. As users wait for a fix to the flaw, CrowdStrike recommends avoiding untrusted and unsecured WiFi networks while traveling. The site also recommends that users update to iOS 7.0.6 if they have not yet installed it on their iOS devices.
