Marissa Mayer planning to push Apple to make Yahoo! the default iOS search engine

Re/code reports that Yahoo! CEO Marissa Mayer is planning an attempt at persuading Apple to switch its default iOS search engine from Google to her company's own offering. According to Re/code's so...

One of the issues is that Yahoo has been for some time moving towards providing content, more or less how AOL has become a content provider rather than a services company. Now from what I understand Microsoft Bing actually is the backend to Yahoo search now, unless that agreement has changed under Marissa Mayer.

I do like Marissa for she has turned Yahoo around in the last year and it is profitable again. This is one area where Apple lacks in services. I would love to see Apple put their backs into Search and integrate this into their Maps, Transit and Siri services. Apple is already curating this content as is, why not have a Search service without a marketing agenda attached to it. I would love to see that where the Apple hardware subsidizes those services. The question now becomes why would you give your private data away freely if you have the opportunity not too?  Apple can do that and their position really becomes attractive.

What is the deal with InFamous Paper Trail?! Are the majority of people not able to get past the first mission because of the constant upload error? And why is this mission tied to some website login that is clearly unable to handle the demand? Very frustrating process.

Since this community belongs to everyone here, and if you have the need to want to be a MOD of this community to  have more ownership, partake and even promote the growth of the OS X community, than just let me know. All I ask is be mindful, respect others, & help keep discussions on topic.

I remove a couple of posts every couple of days from the review console. Some are obvious spam, and still others are seemingly good content but just not related to OS X. +S Jackson  made it clear in the community rules what the community is for, so I hope people would stick to topics related to OS X. Thanks.

Thank you so much for sharing this article, +S Jackson! I knew about some of the shortcuts listed there, and I'm loving the ones that I didn't know of. Sharing it now.

All OS X installations are not affected by the OpenSSL vulnerability, because Apple is using an older version. 

Run the command line to verity your version: $ openssl version

If you are running above 1.0 and you installed the update manually, than you are vulnerable.

Check active services to verify OpenSSL has been patched here:

Here are a list of services affected by heartbleed vulnerability:

This is a trip.  Here is the current pre-order sales for Watchdogs and Destiny. It goes to show a lot of people still don't pre-order their games. These are the numbers as of March 29th. Games like COD or GTA that make a billion in revenue within the first days, that means they have to sell or push over 13 million units on that day or after the sale of the game. Crazy numbers.

Watchdogs Pre-order Sales

Playstation 4
230,902
Playstation 3
101,182
Xbox One
171,952
Xbox 360
108,250
Desktop PC
51,024

663,310 pre-orders

They already collected at least $3,316,550 on $5 down for pre-order.

$39,798,600 guaranteed revenue projected

Destiny Pre-order Sales

Playstation 4
256,171
Playstation 3
47,278
Xbox One
221,987
Xbox 360

Even Second Son was hard to get for some who didn't pre-order. Unless you wait until they become a greatest hit Game of the Year edition, you almost want the pre-order for the all the extras.
