Mac OS X And so the iOS-ification of Mac OS X continues. Apple has just announced that all applications submitted to the Mac App Store have to use sandboxing by March 2012. While this has obvious security advantages, the concerns are numerous - especially since Apple's current sandboxing implementation and associated rules makes a whole lot of applications impossible.

A sandboxed App Store is a beautiful thing for people's grandmas and cubicle drones who would gladly install malware because it lets them make their cursor into a penis shape, and it has its value.


And that, dear sir, is 99.99% of computer users. We tend to forget that.
