Just the latest example why the SSL certificate industry is widely regarded as shady and has such a bad reputation. Not the first time either that Symantec or Comodo are in the news because of their sloppy security practises. There are rumours that Symantec and other companies want to sell their SSL businesses as quickly as possible.
Let’s hope that the awesome work of Let’s Encrypt will accelerate the extinction of these shady and insecure Certificate Authorities. I predict that the launch of wildcard certificates will be the last nail to the coffin of the CA business model. And with it, the begginning of the end for these dishonest and untrustworthy practices.
Atom now with built-in GitHub support. Finally, it was about time! Just installed the new version yesterday. Not that the GitPlus plugin was not good, but it feels better if it is directly integrated into the core product.
Jason Schreier with a nice summary of the latest Mass Effect game’s development. A very insightful look behind the curtain of game development in general and the tough development of Mass Effect Andromeda in particular.
Nice write-up and comparison. I am a bit dissappointed by Apple. Now everything is on Kay Lake, the ultra-portable MacBook now supports up to 16 GB of RAM. But a 32 GB option for the MacBook Pro’s is nowhere in sight. I still hope it will be a “silent update” in the fall.
Very interesting story from Loran Kloeze describing how to create a database of phone numbers, profile pictures and status information without much difficulty.
A really great comic that explains the “backfire effect”. He also recommends listening to all three parts of the “You are not so smart podcast”.

Although the cases drew wide media attention in Britain, some researchers said that because the London team also gave the children standard chemotherapy, they failed to show the cell treatment actually cured the kids.
