Pointers: fix iOS Calendar's tap bug

10/02, 8:48am

When you can't tap on a day in month view

File this under "simple, short and a workaround" while Apple fixes a bug. Since at least iOS 9, possibly earlier, there have been sporadic reports of a problem with Calendar on iPhones.

06/12, 7:07pm

A bug in Gmail could have left every user's email address on the service exposed to collection by outside parties for close to four years. A security researcher from Tel Aviv discovered the bug, which allowed him to collect 37,000 email addresses in as little as two hours with a brute force attack. The bug could allow someone to change a token in a URL, gained from a declining access notification in Gmail's delegation feature, using a script to gather addresses.
