YouTube PiP mode stops working on iOS 14, except for Premium subscribers

Many consumers have expressed frustration over YouTube's pushy Premium marketing, which often badgers users with prompts encouraging them to sign up for the service. The company may have taken things to a new level for iPhone users, though, by seemingly disabling their ability to use the system's picture-in-picture mode unless they pay for the subscription service.

Apple mistakenly approved malware masquerading as Adobe Flash

Once the darling of the Internet, Adobe, formerly Macromedia, Flash has long fallen from grace and even banned in many corners of the Web for its security vulnerabilities. That, however, hasn't really stopped some users from trying to install it, for one reason or another, nor does it stop malware writers from taking advantage of that. Unfortunately for Apple, the latter group was able to pull a fast one and it unknowingly notarized malware disguised as an Adobe Flash installer not once but twice.

Mac OS 8 emulator lets you relive the past for the first time

When people talk about Macs or Mac OS, they're most likely referring to what was previously and perhaps lovingly called "OS X". That "X" is, of course, the Roman numeral that notes that this is the 10th incarnation of Apple's desktop operating system. Few of today's Mac users have probably used Macintoshes before that, let alone older versions of their favorite operating system. Whether you're discovering it for the first time or planning a nostalgia trip, a new macintosh.js project now lets you run the 90s era Mac OS 8, even without owning a 90s era Macintosh.
