Day Two of the Code/Mobile conference packed just as much of a punch as Day One. Here’s a summary of what happened:
- Apple’s product marketing exec Greg Joswiak stopped by to tell us what went wrong with the initial iOS 8 update (apparently it was a distribution problem, not a software one), why he thinks CVS will eventually accept Apple Pay and more. You can also watch him explain why Apple doesn’t want to chase cheaper smartphones or computers.
- If you were already scared of the surveillance state or black-hat hackers, Defcon conference founder and Wickr CEO Nico Sell didn’t say anything to put you at ease. The head of the anonymous messaging service explained why you’re irresponsible for putting photos of your kid on Facebook and being on social media in general. She went on to talk about why privacy is the new fame and showed us the surveillance protection kit she carries around with her.
- Patrick Collison, CEO of the digital commerce company Stripe, made the case for growth in the online payments market, why security is what holds the industry back and how legacy institutions are living like it’s 1989.
- Instagram co-founders Mike Krieger and Kevin Systrom discussed what life is like for them two years after getting acquired by Facebook, and all the under-the-hood changes they’ve made to accommodate Instagram’s roughly 200 million users.
- Though you might not know about it, “deep linking” could be the future of search functions on your smartphone. The CEOs of two firms working in this area — Tomer Kagan of Quixey and John Milinovich of URX — explained what deep linking is all about, why Google isn’t interested in it and the sordid state of searching for and in apps today.
