Apple, Think Secret settle lawsuit
December 20, 2007 – PRESS RELEASE: Apple and Think Secret have settled their lawsuit, reaching an agreement that results in a positive solution for both sides. As part of the confidential settlement, no sources were revealed and Think Secret will no longer be published. Nick Ciarelli, Think Secret’s publisher, said « I’m pleased to have reached this amicable settlement, and will now be able to move forward with my college studies and broader journalistic pursuits. »
Bref, gageons que cette histoire ne se renouvellera pas, et restons sur cette note positive de Nick :
« For some time, I’ve been ready to move on, » said Ciarelli, a social studies major. « My hope would be that my professional career is not defined by a project I launched while in junior high. Now I have that opportunity. »
All the hand-written specialised detection routines, written in x86 assembly language, are here too. On Intel based Mac machines, this code is executed natively under a thin wrapping layer, but on PowerPC machines, this code is dynamically translated into native PPC code. So, excepting few specific windows-only archive extractors it has nearly the same detecting abilities as the windows version, at the same or slightly lower performance level.
