In iOS 8, Apple has a new feature in Safari that allows users to scan a credit card with the device’s camera rather than manually entering the number when making a purchase online.
This is a nice evolution of their current gift card code scanning implementation.
Since compilers already make fast code, why not take advantage?
The result is a healthy performance boost. FTL produces code that is more than 40 times faster than the interpreter, with benchmarks taking about a third less time to run than the old three-tier system.
A very interesting solution
Analyst from Morgan Stanley predicts sales of iPhone 6 to exceed sales of iPhone 5s
*sigh* I thought that the insanity would at least not happen until after WWDC.
A nice spot that is about how the device can be used to cherish family memories with a subtle overtone of “our devices are for content creation”.

The patent describes a system that not only siloes data on the Touch ID “enclave” section of the A7 processor, but that also encrypts the fingerprint maps registered on the device to make it that much more difficult for any thieves to even attempt to pull the data off in any kind of usable form. The enclave is a one-way street, too: the system can check new fingerprints against the stored ones, but there’s no way to check or call up the stored fingerprints at all for external examination once they’re registered.
It is simply amazing to see the process and automation in place to assemble the new Mac Pro.
A great piece that is deeper than just “what did the Los Angeles School District’s IT team do wrong”. It exposes about how LA schools are creating the wrong culture and not helping the students develop into responsible individuals.
Quite honestly, I kinda like it. I really like the toolbar, notification center, and control center implementation.
