Safari Extensions, IBM brings Swift to the cloud, Cook’s car hints


Extensions

How to install Safari extensions on a Mac — Safari for Mac OS X supports extensions that add functionality to the web browser. Extensions can show helpful information about a webpage, display news headlines, help you use your favorite services, change the appearance of webpages, and more.
The Safari Extensions Gallery lets you conveniently browse extensions and install them with a single click. It’s the safest place to download Safari extensions, because all extensions in the Gallery are reviewed, signed, and hosted by Apple. And all extensions that you install from the gallery update automatically.

IBM brings Apple’s Swift to the cloud, simplifying enterprise app development — Thanks to new tools from IBM, developers will be able to write and run applications entirely in the cloud using Apple’s Swift programming language.

Cook hints at Apple car, stops short of confirming — Apple CEO Tim Cook isn’t ready to confirm longstanding rumours that the company is designing a car, but he didn’t exactly deny it, either, in an interview with Fortune. “Part of exploring technologies and picking the right one is becoming so familiar with it you can see ways that it can be used,” he added. “And for us, we’ve never been about being first. We’ve been about being best.” [My italics: a lot of commentators just don’t get this about Apple.]
