For searching local drives...
.. I never cared for spotlight, always found it rather clumsy & omissive. I found a simple shareware app a while ago in my search for an alternative (no affiliations here) called "find any file" - which does a far better job, imho.
Let's play "Finish That Sentence."
"I've never been someone who is a scaremonger ..."
... but now seems as good a time as any!
To (sort of) quote Jeremy Clarkson
"... it's okay, because it's a Jaaaaaaag."
Yes it was ...
... Jobs himself who pilfered that line. Are we paying attention, Sir Jony 'Ive forgotten about that?'
Chief Excremental Orator?
"You're BENDING it WRONG "
So what's the right way of bending it, then?
To put it bluntly ...
... fuck off, Carl.
Never used it ...
... and now I never will.
The Russian -
"believed to be"
"it's been speculated"
"It's been claimed"
Any actual, substantial evidence beyond finger-pointing & political innuendo?
It's not a fault...
...it's an undocumented feature. Really!!
Or maybe it's just corporate rot setting in. Jobs would have gone thermonuclear on his own senior staffers had he survived to witness this.
(tentative note to Apple PR on this one: too much spinning makes you dizzy and fall over a lot.)
This whole debate has been poisoned by politics & pecuniary interest. Google will do what is to Google's advantage - that's the empirical fact here.

@ David Lawton
Running, yes. Leading - debatable.
"I literally think about him every day."
Possible translation - "I don't know what to do next - please come back!"

Bono: "Every time I clap my hands, a U2 track dies."
Me: "Yesss! Keep going!!"

Will it blend?
"The free content ad network..."
Free of content ... jeez guys, get it right.
I don't get how this works
Shareholders are suing Apple for reputational damage which supposedly reduces shareholder value - shareholder action is made public, thus affecting Apples reputation even more, thus reducing shareholder value even more - I'm confused!!
Re: And in other news...
@ Buck Futter
I said nothing of iThing sales, I was talking of their release events. Read more carefully.
And in other news...
...the world is still turning.
I really don't think the circus event thing works for Apple anymore, at least not since they lost one of the worlds best ringleaders - seriously, you need that certain something to sell the Apple show and - it just ain't there no more.
All the celeb hacks over the years, and all the ensuing embarrassment - and people still do this? Digital pron of yourself will never be safe anywhere - ANYWHERE!
I wish these [REDACTED] would just stop [REDACTED] with information. Someone should take a [REDACTED] to their [REDACTED] and [REDACTED] really hard until [REDACTED][REDACTED][REDACTED] with a teaspoon.
End of [REDACTED] rant.
Corporate p.c. bollocks
Would it not be more sensible to simply employ people based on capabilities, skills & talents appropriate to position, regardless of race, colour or creed? Rather fatuous announcement, Mr Cook, not well thought out.
and thank you for being. Not sure I'll ever laugh as hard again.
One who employs terror or terrorism, esp. as a political weapon.
Sounds like a fair description of the current US regime to me.
What's that noise.....?
Makes me think of this brief but brilliant p*sstake from some years back!
At least now...
some of the government knows what it's like when the government invades their privacy. Sadly, however, we are talking about the american senate - I would bet real money at least half of these over-privileged berks think irony is a property certain metals have.

...if the content was worth it.
It's not - so I don't.
Public referendum necessary
Nothing like a mass debate to relieve these sorts of issues.
If I coat my car with this...
...will it absorb the emissions from a cops radar gun? That WOULD be useful!!
Until this old prick produces anything REMOTELY resembling valid content or authentic journalism, he can piss off.
"The motivation for filing these patents are likely varied"
Yes, monopolisation & monetisation.
...practice some selfie-control and don't take stupid or embarrassing pics of yourself.
"Don't you have anything better to do?"
Roboform not 'on form'
Something not quite right with their overly defensive P.R. response, despite proof of execution. A more trust inducing way would have been holding their tongues, verifying the exploit, correcting it post-haste and, oh I dunno, THANKING THE GUY for pointing out a critical flaw.
Re: Dear Judge. Can I call them scum sucking assclowns?
They could try calling them "Non Practicing TittieEnts" & then claim it was a typo. (With apologies to J.R.R. Tolkien)
Re: Everyone, use Tor.
Dude, it was a light hearted jab at the NSA - remove your tin hat temporarily & at least & have a giggle at their expense.
Everyone, use Tor.
Seems straight forward to me...
The market is saturated & overheated with tech-hype - that in combination with the current supply side economic mentality (as opposed to a demand driven one) and a lack of spending ability for a lot of people.
That, or maybe folk are just tired of feeding the monster.
Thinking out loud.
Another possible tracking effort in the works? Didn't they get a grumpy response over this sort of location gubbins a while ago?
(My tinfoil hat's in here somewhere...)
Re: "avoid reputational damage to Goldman Sachs"
And there speaks someone who knows little of cynical humour.
"avoid reputational damage to Goldman Sachs"
You CAN'T be serious!
"...do they really think that the sheeple are still living in the dark ages ..."
The US government & its legal apparatus are doing their damnedest to make that happen - witness the current Hobby Lobby debacle. This graphic pretty much sums up the attitude -
It's bitterly amusing...
..when officialdom investigates officialdom & finds itself to be officially ok. (I'm speaking unofficially, of course.)
Why do kids in the USA appear to have such easy access to Mum & Dads credit cards in the first place? That Amazon doesn't really care who's spending whose money is one issue, but if kids are racking up their parents' credit debt, with or without their consent, then I would think Mum & Dad need to confront that directly.
So, by inference, these guys wouldn't mind if someone secretly & surreptitiously decided to deliberately provoke them emotionally without regard or consent?
Re: Something else to think about.
"I think most Americans don't care about respect from the rest of the world"
And therein lies a big part of the problem, I would posit. As airy-fairy as it sounds, authentic respect is a valuable human quality that has been tossed aside in favour of unchecked authority and manipulative control. That the governing classes of the USA only seem to pay lip service to that word or display a shameless disdain for a deeper understanding of it does matter. Disregard human emotion & sensibility enough, and it always gets ugly.
"We're disappointed that the Supreme Court has declined to hear the case"
Oh, I'm so sorry you didn't get your way. </sarc>
21 seconds? OK for animals I guess.
Humans, however - I've seen guys at the urinal in any number of pubs take at least twice as long whilst propping up the wall.
