This is the thirty-second edition of CrunchX and here are the stories and resources we thought were worth spending the time.

1. Everyone knows what YouTube is — few know how it really works

YouTube has always been fascinating to me because it’s such a black box — everyone feels like they know how the platform works, but very few people have a real understanding of the internal politics and tradeoffs that actually drive YouTube’s decisions. Written by Nilay Patel on The Verge and editorial selection by Aniket. Read the article here:

2. Apple is too strict with copy and pastes in iOS 16

Your iPhone’s clipboard often contains sensitive data — passwords, personal photos, two-factor passcodes, and so on. Apps likely skim this information more often than any of us realize. And this is another example of Apple abiding by its mantra on privacy. Written by Chris Welch on The Verge and editorial selection by Aniket. Read the article here:

3. The Real-World AI Issue

After years of promise, AI is finally becoming useful. But what usually happens to useful technologies is that they disappear. We forget about the things that just work, and we shouldn’t let that happen to AI. Written and published on The Verge and editorial selection by Aniket. Read the article here:

4. Linus Torvalds: Rust may make it into the next Linux kernel after all

The Rust language continues to go from strength to strength as recently evidenced by Linus Torvalds’ comment that he’s going to propose adding Rust to the next release of the Linux kernel. As mentioned in the article it’s already second to the C language in terms of use within Linux development primarily due to its significant advantages in terms of memory management. Written by Steven Vaughan-Nichols on ZDNET and editorial selection by Dr. Stuart Woolley. Read the article here:

5. Git Merge vs. Rebase: Which to Use and When

Talking of Linux, git has become the de facto tool for source code control but I know I’m not alone when I get confused between Merge and Rebase when it comes to reconciling feature branches with their original parent. Jonathan Chaffer has an excellent, concise article highlighting the differences between the two and which one you should use in a particular circumstance. Written by Jonathan Chaffer on Atomic Spin and editorial selection by Dr. Stuart Woolley. Read the article here:
