  2. A nascent web API called getInstalledRelatedApps for app detection offers a glimpse of why online privacy remains such an uncertain proposition.

For the past few days, video editors have been panicking as a data corruption issue struck their Macs (typically 2013 Mac Pros), preventing them from rebooting their systems properly. But what was the cause? Their Avid Media Composer editing suite? MacOS itself? No — it turns out their browser was likely to blame. Google...

  9. Like a cat, the Test Pilot program has had many lives. It originally started as an Add-on before we relaunched it three years ago. Then in January, we announced that we were evolving our culture of experimentation, and as a result we closed the Test Pilot program to give us time to further explore what was next. We learned a lot from the Test... Read more about Firefox Private Network test pilot program on Lunarsoft. View the full article

Many apps that offer VoIP services currently run in the background,... Read more about iOS 13 privacy features means overhaul for Facebook apps on Lunarsoft. View the full article
  13. Microsoft last month pushed a silent update that patched a processor side channel data leak in all CPUs Intel has introduced since 2012, researchers who discovered the flaw said Tuesday.
