#1578: Apple delays CSAM detection, upgrade Quicken 2007 to Quicken Deluxe, App Store settlement and regulatory changes

Apple has announced that it will be delaying the controversial technologies that tried to match known illegal CSAM images uploaded to iCloud Photos and scanned for explicit pictures sent or received by minors in Messages. Developer complaints are at long last coming home to roost, as regulators and lawsuits target Apple’s App Store policies—we explain how Apple is being forced to adapt. Finally, Glenn Fleishman describes how and why he upgraded from his ancient version of Quicken 2007 to the current Quicken Deluxe. Notable Mac app releases this week include Acorn 7.1, BBEdit 14.0.1, Fission 2.7.1, and MarsEdit 4.5.1.
