Remote View Controllers And XPC On iOS

Phenomenal forensic investigation by Ole Begemann about remote view controllers and the private frameworks that show a very plausible look at how apps may use XPC to communicate with each other in the future of iOS. At the very least, I was fascinated by his discovery of private classes hinting that Apple will eventually run UIWebViews in a separate process from your application. This would solve the security concerns with running the JavaScript JIT compiler in a third party app, giving us yet another great performance boost when using web technologies.
