Re: How to win friends...
Not quite, Apple want/need their fans to continue loving them. We pay a bit over the odds for our computing/mobiles and Apple can't afford to offend us, getting found out to have been letting us down would be catastrophic. I quite like Tim Cook, he comes across as a fairly genuine person. Granted he's not Steve Jobs, but he's doing ok, by me, so far.
Out of interest, what would it cost Apple to post a bulletin somewhere saying "Sorry, the feds got got to us" ? Then taking the notice down after being told to.
I just despair
If you want an Apple device buy one, if you want someone else's, buy it. Why flame the one you don't want ? Utterly pointless. The arguments surrounding iOS and android are well known and worn out.
Tim Cooke is now german and a hitlerite to boot ? Why the the denigrating term führer ?
Re: Green Prince of Darkness
Particularly if aircraft stop catching fire.
I really hope
that there is no iWatch, and instead, we get a total surprise. I miss the surprises, too many leaks.
The design Apple have implemented is very very secure .....
Thanks for your pearls of wisdom. That 'expert's stuff was way too complicated for my simple mind to deal with, so at least I know now that I don't need to worry unduly.
Re: "What will Apple reveal tomorrow"
You're making the false assumption that price is all that matters. How about software update ability, resale value, and for some: style ?
Oh no, that bad ? I've already given up on the new Dr. He just lacks whatever it was the last 2 had.
Does anyone else think Adobe, or at least a worthwhile software writing firm, should rewrite their entire range ? Horrible buggy crapware.
Re: Just shows...
This is true, I'm old, own an iPhone because it just works, and am housebound. I've never had a mobile phone stolen.
Re: Just shows...
You can also prove that policemen are very, very dangerous drivers because they're involved in many more accidents than other groups.
I just wish
there weren't leaks. I much preferred it when the new phone was a surprise.
A camera, that's good but not as good as a camera, with a built in phone. Hmm.
Re: "Rabid Fans"?
Samsung could start making phones worth buying ?
Instead of just supplying tacky plastic things to apple haters.
Bring on the red arrows, lemmings, see how much I care.
Due to a family financial emergency, my replacement is going to have to wait.
The safest protection is still by increasing time delay on repeated attempts.
Re: unlimited login attempts/client certificates
They can have my nudie pics any time. Just need to ask.
Re: Two-factor auth for Find My iPhone?
and if you don't have a "real phone" ?
Sadly, governments will get their hands on that data. And then, they'll sell it.
Give me ......
And one of my favourite quotes. Particularly when running into the "you have nothing to fear" advocates.
Re: Balanced sound bite
You lost me by para 2 :(
Tony Bliar is a wart on the asshole of humanity.
D notices don't work like that, they're only a request to newspapers/media not to publish.
BBC goes titsup: iPlayer to News websites down
Once they start charging me money to watch it, will I be owed a refund for these events ?
Should not the Metropolitan Police now be declared a terrorist organization?
As should Mrs May, for exactly the same behaviour. I was proud of her for managing to expel certain odious people from this country. She does however display a poor example of trying to control the populace by making them guilty till proved innocent.
Re: Obscene publications
Hmm, I suspect using a knife to behead someone, as was reported, would be far more of a butcher's job, than those you suggest.
Re: The police are WRONG
As will your relatives, neighbours and their relatives.
A variation on old news
Seems like this is the same plod who insisted taking pictures of his colleagues was illegal, only to have a judge correct him a while later.

Politicians pass bills in the house of commons, not readers of the Daily Mail.
The battery lasts at least 3 years which strangely is about the same length of time before I'd quite like a new one.
Re: WIndows 8, SP2?
An o/s you have to work at to make work ? No thanks, I thought it was supposed to be the other way round.
Re: Cult of crapple comes to rescue
There's always a hater. Keep on buying your plastic thingie that has to be replaced every time there's an o/s update.
I really, really don't care. My MBP I love, my iPhone I love. Just don't have a need for an iWatch.
Re: Commentards Running Amok Without a Clue.
MS will love you. Keep pushing for them. Someone, somewhere will believe you.
This reminds me
of the plod who decided we couldn't take photographs of them (plods).
Or just stay off social networking sites ?
iTunes is pretty much malware under Windows anyway.
LMAO, so because of a weak PC o/s causing the problem, Apple is the culprit ?
I expect it's also doing more than 30mph.
Stick enough speeding tickets on it and they'll change it's path from a collision course with ease.
Don't forget to say "Hi" to the spooks while you're chatting to your terrorist friends.
I expect they're trying to work out how best to use the info Google collected.
No, it's not "funny" at all.
Your argument presumes ordinary drivers aren't trained to drive while talking on handheld or handsfree devices. I was trained to be able to do this by a retired police driving instructor and also to train our fleet in order to reduce the frequency of avoidable mishaps.
Perhaps the answer, if police are safe to use them, is to train everyone to be safe using them. Make it part of driver training, tests.
Re: Big deal
So that means she should say nothing ?
More about you can be gained from the meta data than from the content.

Re: Happened to me twice.
Explains, at the end of the article exactly how to do it.
Well, my example would be the iPhones I've previously sold when replacing them with a newer version. I generally get between £250 and £325. What better reason for not destroying it ? And yes, I've always used Apple's method of completely clearing the memory first. which is to overwrite several times with 1's and 0's.
A bold claim - from a company who's current phones seem to last about a week in most people's hands before becoming a work of shattered glass!
I've had mine since the release, the only time i smashed the glass was when I fell and my 24 stone body crushed it into the kitchen floor. The replacement, now almost 18 months old isn't even scratched.
Hate the new Lightning leads, they fall apart so easily. I've reverted to using a 30 pin with adaptor. much more robust.
Android Wear FAIL took two whole days ........
Maybe they need Apple to show them how to do it and what to copy ?
