The ongoing Epic Games v. Apple trial continues to provide insight into Apple's App Store processes, with documents today offering up details on the number of apps submitted to the App Store and rejected by Apple's review processes. Apple's documentation suggests that the App Store sees 100,000 App Store submissions per week, which are dealt with by 500 human experts that Apple has on hand. Prior to getting to a human review, apps are analyzed by Apple-designed tools to check for malware and policy violations. A testing tool called Mercury runs through static and dynamic analysis processes, with the tool allowing Apple to see inside apps to check for hidden code or abuse, and there are other review tools that Apple has nicknamed "Magellan" and "Columbus." After automated testing, apps receive human oversight. Dynamic testing includes everything from battery usage to file system access and privacy requests to access device hardware like the camera and microphone, … [Read more...] about Apple Rejected Approximately 35% of Apps Submitted to App Store Between 2017 and 2019
President Joe Biden’s border chief, Alejandro Mayorkas, is using the little-known “parole” side door in border law to bring legally deported migrants back for televised reunions with their left-behind, asylum-seeking children. “Our highest priority is to reunite these families … It’s not about righting the wrong of the past, it’s about restoring the conscience of our government,” Mayorkas said he touted his return of four deported migrants in a May 4 appearance on MSNBC. The parole side-door “is a very limited authority that Congress has given for exceptional situations,” responded Andrew Arthur, a former immigration judge who now works with the Center for Immigration Studies. The parole door “is very narrowly written [for small numbers of people], but the administration has blown right past the limitations,” he said. Mayorkas is using parole power to create at least 1,000 reunifications that will serve as “a political prop to advance a [pro-migraton] narrative” about … [Read more...] about Department of Homeland Security’s Mayorkas Stages Open-Borders Theater
President Joe Biden on Thursday unveiled plans for locally-led protection of 30% of U.S. land and water by 2030, a core of his agenda to address climate warming that builds on nature-saving efforts launched in Congress by lawmakers from Colorado and other western states. Natural land and water could draw down the heat-trapping air pollution that causes climate change, scientists say, and nature increasingly is understood as a life support system for human survival both inside cities and in rural areas. Preserving at least 30% of land and water by 2030, they say, is necessary to pull back from a catastrophic tipping point. Gov. Jared Polis issued a statement casting Colorado as a leader in cooperative “science-based approaches” toward the fulfillment of Biden’s climate objectives. Biden’s announcement “opens the door to a collaborative and sustainable path toward conserving our critical ecosystems, supporting the Colorado way of life, while closing the door to fears about broad … [Read more...] about Biden’s “30 by 30” plan could mean protecting 14 million more acres of land, water in Colorado
Last year’s pandemic lockdown complicates any year-over-year comparisons when it comes to metro Denver’s housing market, but a few trends definitely remain in play, and some new ones are gaining strength. There still aren’t enough properties available given demand, listings that do hit the market are going under contract in a flash, and prices continue to accelerate at a pace unimaginable a year ago, according to the Denver Metro Association of Realtors market trends report for April . And in something rarely seen, luxury homes, defined as those topping $1 million, are a hot commodity, selling in one-third the time and at double the pace of recent years. “Since last year, we have seen a steady rise in competition and therefore prices. With only two weeks of inventory, prices continue to be on the rise,” said Andrew Abrams, chairman of DMAR’s Market Trends Committee, in comments accompanying DMAR’s market trends report for April. Two weeks in that there were only 2,594 … [Read more...] about Metro Denver housing market developing a taste for luxury
