Apple Sues Former iOS Engineer For Vision Pro Leaks

Apple is suing a former employee, Andrew Aude, for leaking confidential details about upcoming products, including the Journal app and VisionOS headset, to journalists.

Aude, who joined Apple in 2016, allegedly had extensive encrypted communications with journalists, including sharing finalized features of unreleased products.

Apple accuses him of attempting to "kill" products he disliked and seeks damages, the return of bonuses and stock options, and a court order to prevent further leaks.

Jay Graber’s Opinion
Federation The Future Of Social Media

Bluesky, a project born from Jack Dorsey at Twitter, aims to reshape social media with its AT Protocol, which gives users more control over their digital identities and fostering a flexible, federated online community.

The ‘federation’ enables social servers & platforms to communicate and share data with each other. Meaning, users can follow, interact with, and share content with users on another server without ever visiting said server.

For example, if you joined the federation and posted an image on Instagram with a caption, that image and caption could be pulled from the Instagram server and shared to LinkedIn, Bluesky, and other non-Meta servers.

It’s basically a next-level content management tool, but without having to fork up the cash for the third-party costs & APIs.
