Apple handcuffs 'open' web apps on iPhone home screen


We should be shifting away from Apple's proprietary app store

With the advent of HTML5 it's becoming easier and easier to develop application that mimic almost or entirely the functionality of their native counterparts.

Take this for example http://bbc-news.snaver.net/ it is almost on par with the bbc's equivalent, yet can run straight from the browser. But then I guess Apple misses out on its big 30% cut? Ho hum indeeed.

Lush website hack 'exposes credit card details'


What a joke..

"24 hour security monitoring has shown us that we are still being targeted and there are continuing attempts to re-enter." OBVIOUSLY, why wouldn't expect this? Any front-end website on the internet will face constant attacks, i bet they came to this conclusion after checking attempted ssh logins, genius!

"We Believe hacking is a serious crime which steals large amounts of money and disrupts the lives of cardholders." No.. really?

"We Believe that hacking erodes the trust between businesses and their customers and creates a climate of fear around online ordering." No, just no. Not investing the correct amount of resources in your online business will erode the trust between yourself and your users.

The climate of fear that they talk about has come around because of businesses like themselves, business that just don't take these kind of issues seriously. Like investing in a decent web company.

I hope they get sued for this massive breach of user data.
