Apple Will No Longer Unlock Most iPhones, iPads For Police
It's like this Mr. Waylon Jones: this minimal information is pretty easy to get without access to your phone. You are almost certainly carrying a driver's license, with your name and address on it. You can probably be traced using your auto's license plate and registration. Police and other emergency services have easy access to unlisted phone numbers... and so on
Interview: Ask Theo de Raadt What You Will
Recently both Debian and Ubuntu decided to make the switch to Systemd. With more and more distros switching to Systemd, will OpenBSD do the same?
Systemd's license is incompatible with OpenBSD, thus it would need to be rewritten from scratch (and it would probably refactored too). For systemd to appear in OpenBSD there needs to be a benefit to OpenBSD... not simply convenience for people moving from Linux.
This is how pf was born: IPFilter was removed from OpenBSD due to concerns about its license and the pf developers refactored IPFilter's baroque rules syntax for simplicity and consistency.

Chattanooga's Municipal Network Doubles Down On Fiber Speeds
I was just about to post something like "wait until the Europeans, Koreans or Japanese start posting their speeds". The USA is so far behind that average speeds elsewhere seems screaming fast at home... Then there's Canada, which was amoung the fastest 10 years ago, but then stopped improving. Now they're trailing.

Ask Slashdot: Options For FOSS Remote Support Software?
For mac users, I make sure that my computer is reachable by ssh and I set up a "help" account.
Then I email the following commands (with appropriate substitutions)
sudo /System/Library/CoreServices/RemoteManagement/ARDAgent.app/Contents/Resources/kickstart -activate -configure -access -on -clientopts -setvnclegacy -vnclegacy yes -clientopts -setvncpw -vncpw VNC-PASSWORD -restart -agent -privs -all
ssh -R 5901:127.0.0.1:5900 -R 2201:127.0.0.1:22 help@MY-IP-ADDRESS-OR-DNS
Next I PHONE the person and get them to start up "Terminal" and copy/paste the commands above into the Terminal window. I also tell them what to type into the Terminal window when it asks for the "help" account's password.
Now I can start up my VNC client and connect via port 5901
