"In the past we used gelatin from pork but ... we changed our gelatin from the pork source to be from a seaweed source," she said. Thailand's junta has set the goal of turning the country into one of the world's top five halal exporting nations by 2020. Some outsiders might be surprised to see an overwhelmingly Buddhist nation embrace halal. But Dr Winai Dahlan, founder of the Halal Science Centre at Bangkok's Chulalongkorn University, says Thailand was well placed to make the change. Five percent of its population is Muslim and – outside of the insurgency plagued southern border region – is well-integrated within the Buddhist majority. It was local Thai Muslims who first began asking for the country's halal testing centre, a business that scours products for any banned substances and has since boomed. "Fifteen years ago there was only 500 food plants that had halal certification.

Indonesian carrier Smartfren has announced it will begin accepting iPhone 7 pre-orders on Friday, March 24. Pricing has not been disclosed, but customers can sign up on Smartfren's website to receive more information. While the iPhone 7 has been available in many other countries since September, the Indonesian government recently enacted a policy that requires 4G-capable smartphones to have at least 30 percent "local content," which can be hardware, software, or in this case, a commitment to invest in the country. Apple satisfied the requirements of that policy when it committed around 44 million towards research and development in Indonesia over three years, which will include building an iOS App Development Center in the country. Apple received a "local content certification," allowing it to sell iPhones throughout Indonesia. iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus were the last smartphones that Apple officially sold in Indonesia, according to local website Coconuts Jakarta .

How do you know that new appliance you bought won't burn your house down? Take a look at any electrical appliance, and you’ll find it marked with at least one, and most often, several safety certification marks such as UL, DIN, VDE, CSA or BSI. Practically every electrical product that plugs into utility supply needs to go through a mandatory certification process to ensure it meets these conformity test requirements. Some examples include domestic and industrial electrical appliances, tools, electrical accessories, consumer electronics and medical electronics. When you look through a typical safety test standard, you’ll notice it breaks down the various tests in two categories. “Typetests are conducted on prototypes and samples of the final product or its individual parts and components, and are not generally repeated unless there are changes in design or materials.

News has emerged of yet another malware threat to Apples computers, this time in the form of a RAT (Remote Access Trojan) crafted to target macOS and it has a major security sting in its tail. The malware, which goes by the name of Proton, was discovered by security outfit Sixgill on an underground Russian cybercrime forum where developers try to sell their exploitative wares to other malicious users of the dark web. This particular little RAT is dangerous for two reasons: firstly, simply because of the amount of nefarious tricks it can pull off on the victims machine, and secondly, the fact that it comes with genuine certification direct from Apple, and according to the author the Trojan is undetectable by current macOS antivirus software (which is obviously very worrying indeed). On the second point, Sixgill explains that the author must have somehow slipped the software through the net of Apples filtration processes which macOS devs are subject to, possibly by using stolen developer credentials (or via a falsified registration for the dev program).
