It’s a big day for Microsoft and its (soon to be even larger) cadre of dedicated developers: Starting today, Microsoft is making the core parts of its .Net framework open-source, and cross-platform on Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. Microsoft is also committing to adding Android and iOS support in the upcoming Visual Studio 2015 — in fact, there’s already an Android emulator in Visual Studio 2015 Preview, and iOS support will be added soon. Furthermore, Microsoft is releasing a new version of Visual Studio — “Community 2013″ — that is free and full-featured. This is a bold move that will attempt to cement .Net, C#, and Visual Studio as the dominant development platform across Windows, Linux, Android, iOS, and Mac — and, well, it might just work.
Over the last few years, Microsoft has been slowly open-sourcing various parts of its developer tools, mostly in response to the fact that developers expect a lot more transparency than they used to. It didn’t make much sense to open-source stuff when Windows was the only OS that mattered, but the rapid growth of Linux as a server platform, and Android and iOS in the consumer space, have forced software developers to take a much broader, platform-agnostic stance — and Microsoft has followed suit. It’s actually been quite amusing and heartwarming, watching Microsoft go from hating everything about Linux and what it stands for, through to positively embracing the penguin.

When Dashboard first came out, it was an incredibly useful tool when ever you needed to do something. One just pressed the F12 key, and Dashboard would pop-up over what ever you were doing at the time.
But with each new OS X update, it seemed as though Apple wanted to hide (or even wanted to get rid off) Dashboard by hiding it away into never-never-land.
Fortunately, you can bring back Dashboard to act like the old days just by a few simple clicks.
1. Go into System Preferences > Mission Control.
2. Look for the Dashboard section and choose the drop down menu.
3. Select “AS OVERLAY”

Although it appears to be spreading through a third-party OS X app store in China and consequently largely confined to that country, the development could be a taste of things to come for iDevice owners in other parts of the world if similarly designed malware is launched by other cybercriminals, or even the same group.
Palo Alto Networks said the one it’s uncovered, called ‘WireLurker’, loads onto iPhones and iPads when the device is connected via USB to a Mac computer onto which an infected OS X app has already been downloaded.
