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.

My first reaction was laughing at apple's childish decision of making everything the produce a toddler-proof toy. But then I realized that I am using a mac to browse the article. Oh my!

Luckily apple hasn't disable third party installers yet. So I can still install most of the software I use. Unfortunately I have this bad feeling that the perverts at apple will eventually take this precious ability away from us.
