Apple Wins iTunes DRM Case

robmv Re:Deals? (191 comments)

You are taking examples that are not a market monopoly, Search is an example that they can't do whatever they want, any example you find that say they can do watherver they want with that technology, doesn't make true: the parent comment "Making products work with only your products is legal" there are situations where that isn't true. The situation here is, was iTunes to big so they can't do whatever they wanted?

Apple Wins iTunes DRM Case

robmv Re:Deals? (191 comments)

Say that to Google, they don't have the right to make their search products to only work with their browser or OSs, monopoly regulations will start to hit them. What did Apple wrong?, I can't say for sure, IANAL and apparently they will try an appeal, but was Apple music service big enough at the time they started screwing with other companies trying to enter the market? maybe, maybe not.

Apple Wins iTunes DRM Case

robmv Re:Deals? (191 comments)

It ia a joke analogy, I know but the main idea is that your deals doesn't give you a blank cheque to do anything above the law, as I said, "if that was the case"

Continuing with the joke analogy, If the killer don't agree to kill the husband, the customer, the wife, will not get access to enjoy the money from the inheritance either

Apple Wins iTunes DRM Case

robmv Deals? (191 comments)

"Your Honor, I ended up killing him, It was absolutely necessary given deals I had with his wife to patch her problems"

A secret deal is not an excuse to screw illegaly your customers, if that was the case.

New NXP SoC Gives Android Its Apple Pay

robmv Re:So Android DOESN'T have an Apple Pay equivalent (122 comments)

In my understanding of the Android docs and this blog, yes it can have one, Google Wallet use the harware secure element on supported devices. Recent Android releases added APIs too, for applications to emulate cards without access to the secure element, pure CPU based implementations, less secure but still an option.

iOS Trojan Targets Hong Kong Protestors

robmv Re:Advanced? Requires a Jailbreak & manual ins (72 comments)

Until someone use one of those remote vulnerabilities that were used previously to jailbreak phones for malware (I remember one that did the jailbreak with just visiting a web page). We are talking about China here, so if this is some kind of government sponsored attack, they probably already have unreported security bugs at their disposal. It is true that iPhone security has being enhanced with every release, but at the same time code size has increased, so It must be something in ther to do more damage with enough resources

robmv Re:Disabled (427 comments)

Because firmware updates become difficult, instead of binary differences between releases, you need a full fledged package manager and dependecy resolution to update the phone

Google Hangouts Gets Google Voice Integration And Free VoIP Calls

robmv inum (162 comments)

Google, stop chaging people that uses inum, those are SIP endpoints so it is wrong to charge money for a connection that is direct between SIP user agents, if not, don't complain about the lack of Net neutrality. You are giving advantage to people on your own IP network (Hangouts users) that those outside that want to communicate with Hangouts users.

Should a Linux kernel privilege scalation bugs be called a C vulnerability? no, those are bugs on code that use a particular language. If you say that the bug was found on the embeeed XML parser or any other library that is part of the Java Runtime, I would say yes, but this time no

Mozilla To Support Public Key Pinning In Firefox 32

robmv Re:Wreak havoc on corporate networks, SSL observat (90 comments)

The default is:

  1. Allow User MITM (pinning not enforced if the trust anchor is a user inserted CA, default)

So CAs inserted by the corporate networks will be allowed, only verified for CAs shipped by Mozilla

How Red Hat Can Recapture Developer Interest

robmv Re:Dump SELinux and systemd, make it easier (232 comments)

SELinux is another leyer of security people should learn. Is it difficult the first time you use it? true, but that doesn't mean it isn't useful.

Every time someone says that SELinux should be disabled, instead of learining how to use it, I remember the days when Windows changed from FAT to NTFS, and people said "disable NTFS, format FAT, filesystem permissions are difficult" :)
