Apple has released iOS 6.1, which adds LTE support for more carriers worldwide, but not much more in terms of features for a release that's graced with a full "dot-digit" numerical upgrade. "Apple today updated iOS to version 6.1, adding LTE capabilities to 36 additional iPhone carriers and 23 additional iPad carriers around the …
The iTunes update was for me only 90Mb. I believe it depends on your device and where you life, not sure. I did see on a dutch forum it was 200 something Mb for some users.
The iPad 4th Gen download was 90MB for me. It still killed the quota on my MiFi pebble tho.
First car? This junky POS that is the Proton Gen 2. I don't understand how TopGear could trash the Perodua Kancil instead of this lemon which has serious tuning issues and multiple defects right out of the factory. Heck, one of the car's tires disintegrated during the car's maiden voyage!
You do realise that Top Gear isn't a serious car show. It's a comedy sketch show. With the modern versions of curly mo and larry.
I HATE THESE DAMN SECURITY QUESTIONS!
I'm glad Rik referred to how stupid this is in a cleverly oblique way, though I wish we'd see an entire Reg article dedicated to this abomination.
Most of us who read The Reg are probably clueful enough to realize how stupid it would be to give truthful answers to these security questions, but the average person doesn't realize how insecure this is. This might have seemed like a good solution to the problem of identifying yourself on the web for relatively unimportant sites at first, but it has taken on a life of its own since. The ability to easily search the web for names as well as the propensity of people to give away "unimportant" information to Facebook makes this far more dangerous than using a dictionary word as a password.
But once something is deemed a "best practice" in security it lives forever like some sort of zombie. Much like the outdated idea that changing your password frequently is a good idea, these "three security questions" continue to be used everywhere. Presumably anyone actually working in the industry knows this is dumb, but I know from experience in my consulting work that no matter how smart and well regarded you are in your field, you can't fight "best practices" with your recommendations. You can recommend something, someone will point out it contradicts best practices, and you can explain why best practices are wrong in this case until you're blue in the face, but in the end you are forced to give in if you want to get anything accomplished aside from discussing this one issue.
Nail on head time.
I wish I could give you several upvotes for that. Unfortunately "best practices" dictate your post is only worth the same single thumbs up as the inevitable one along the lines of "...my first car had rounded corners... Apple lawyers...", coming up in 5... 4... 3...
Re: I HATE THESE DAMN SECURITY QUESTIONS!
Maybe El Reg could run an article or two about these stupid "worst practices".
Then we'd have somewhere to point to when managers insist "but it's best practice".
Re: I HATE THESE DAMN SECURITY QUESTIONS!
We have our fearless leaders in Congress to thank for a lot of this. Basically the whole roll out of this crap is the implementation of these "best practices" is one, read the cheapest and easiest, way to gain Sarbox (Sarbanes-Oxley Act) compliance. One more example of paving the road to a hand basket, or something like that.
Looks like we might have to wait until next Monday for the JB, but I'm still hoping Sunday will be Funday.
But what about fixing Bluetooth
My Nokia hands free car kit is still not fully functional with iPhone... despite the fact it was when I got my 3GS several years ago and does with the new Blackberry that my employers gave me. Come on Apple, how about fixing something that should be relatively simple to fix?
"My Nokia hands free car kit is still not fully functional with iPhone"
Business logic has it that old devices get removed, certainly not added.
still an annoying issue..
someone sends you an email asking for your cv which you have in dropbox. you click 'reply', type some words then want to attach a non-photo file.......how?
Ford Pinto. Yeah, the one that blew up if hit in the rear end...
It only blew up with certain models that had the extra long bolt in the bumper assembly that would penetrate the gas tank, thereby providing the boom.
I've had two of them. Fun little cars with nearly bulletproof engines.

Yes, it was an Orion, but it had a poncy name, so that made it OK right?
