Remains of the Day: Apple WWDC to Take Place on June 5th
Apple will be holding their Worldwide Developers Conference on June 5th. Though it's not usually a forum for unveiling new hardware, Apple will likely give a look at the future of all their software, from iOS to macOS. That and more in today's news.
- Apple's WWDC17 will take place June 5th through 9th in San Jose, CA. Aside from the keynote presentation that will kick it off, most of the event really is for developers. Ticket registration opens March 27th. [Apple]
- Yahoo is warning some users that state-sponsored attacks might have breached accounts accounts in 2015 or '16. The attacks apparently utilize sophisticated forged cookies that can access accounts without using a password. [ZDNet]
- Twitter has been temporarily shadow-banning some users for bad behavior. The affected tweeters are greeted with a message that says their account features are "temporarily limited," meaning that only their followers can see their activity for a 12 hour period. It effectively limits their reach and stops people from spamming others with abusive language, for a time. [BuzzFeed]
- Reddit has changed how their infamous front page chooses top stories to feature. Instead of showing the top stories from 50 large subreddits that were specifically included in r/all, it will now show popular stories from the entire site. The new front page, now called r/popular, should in theory display more diverse stories for users who aren't already logged in. If you're already an active Reddit member with your own subscriptions, nothing will change once you're logged in. [Reddit]
