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.

As usual, sandboxing Apple's profits from competing products, instead of protecting user from security threats.

Can you please update the article, it's misleading and misinformed.

The sandboxing requirement is not something new.
The initial deadline was November, it was pushed to March because apparently things aren't clear and some aren't ready.


You clearly didn't read my article. Please read before accusing me of things, okay?

Gra├žias.
