Re: Fixed in iOS 9
Sorry, no - Apple claimed that 52% of all *active devices* were using iOS 9 a couple of weeks ago, not just of all applicable devices.

...largely, at least. From the Paloalto Networks story:
"Note that, in Apple’s just-released iOS 9, enterprise certificate security has been improved. Users now must manually set a related provisioning profile as “trusted” in Settings before they can install Enterprise provisioned apps."
The majority of iOS devices are already upgraded to 9.
(Any device can get malware on it if the software between the users ears isn't up to the job, of course)
It appears that plenty of developers were happy to download XCode from dodgy Chinese sites without any checks. Are you really suggesting that all Android devs are likely to be different? Unless they are, the same attack vector exists, and no amount of Apple-bashing denialism changes that.
I thought it would be much bigger than the original 50 or so when I saw that list included WinZip. I suppose I can see how a Chinese small developer might end up downloading Xcode from a dodgy Chinese language site, but WinZip is from Corel, who are Canadian.
Outsourcing development, perhaps??
In the U.K. there is only London when it comes to news.
One third of the population of the UK lives or works inside the M25. London produces roughly half the taxes for the UK.
If you want us to become independent, a la Singapore, just say the word.
(Queue the downvotes from the UKIP types I guess....)
Do you get to watch the Beeb for free?
Some of it. You also get added adverts on some services, and some content geographically blocked. The ability to buy a TV licence for overseas use (or somehow identify yourself as holding a licence, eg when on holiday) is a not infrequent request.
Leaving the EU (in this case) would just mean the UK government would have no say in the regulations which would end up being imposed on them anyway. Do you really think the multinational lobbyists behind this sort of stuff are more worried about the UK out of the EU than in?? There may be arguments for leaving, but this ain't one.
A better question is why so many UK politicians don't care about stuff like this.
Over here they can only be a taxi service.
Isn't the whole point of Uber that it ignores existing taxi regulations and screams and holds it's breath when people suggest it should be regulated (who doesn't want to be driven by a criminal or psychopath after all?)
Personally, I use black cabs (advantage of living in London though)
...can still fail if implemented badly. I remember being at a client's new datacentre many years ago were they had half a dozen or so S370s. There was a power failure affecting the whole site, but the UPS, followed by the on-site generator, kept the mainframes running. Unfortunately, some genius had wired the mainframes consoles into the normal ring main, rather then the protected circuit, so whilst the 370's continued running, not a lot could be done with them! Doh!
"Apple laptops had replaced Windows laptops"
Nicely edited to change the meaning of the sentence. However as a platform for code development (which was what the author was saying) the ratio is different. I certainly see many Macbooks being used by coders at my clients, even those that are exclusively Microsoft based.
FWIW, I still use Windows as my OS on desktop and laptop to develop and manage my Windows code, but I have got phone & tablet set up with RDP as a fallback.
With caveat that everyone uses a device in a different way, I'd guess the majority of people use tablets primarily at home and not on the move, compared to phones. So battery life is more of an issue on a phone than a tablet, as the charger is more likely to be handy is the tablet runs out of juice.
