Digital Locks Cannot Be Permanent

Apple says all Macs and iOS devices affected by chip flaws and it is not their fault. The security issue comes from a 3rd party part from another company. I am not sure it is that company’s fault either. You can’t even have perfect security in the real world. When you lock something up, you expect to be able to unlock the lock to get access to what you locked up. The lock, it turns out, is its own point of failure by design. The natural world we live in does not provide a way to completely isolate some in such a way that a person or group can have exclusive access. Security may eventually include what you don’t do on the machine given its security limitations.
