My serious answer is I paid for the AI mobile ad subscription. As for all those ads in newspapers, magazines, and TV, the first thing I do with the one weekly newspaper I get is pull out all the ads and throw them in the recycle bin. As for TV, I either mute it or use that time to do something else. I rarely read magazines because most of them have more advertisements than actual content. I understand website operators need to find a way to justify their web presence but...
It's about time. I already use blockers but having them built-in will help with compatibility. While Apple's at it, I'd really like to see them push back on web sites that work without Flash on iOS yet continue to force the use of it on OSX. I know I can use the Develop menu and select which User Agent I want to use but this shouldn't be necessary. The web sites are satisfied with not using Flash on mobile devices, which probably outnumber desktop devices by a large...
If Apple is behind anything, the lawyers will come out in droves. Anyone else and nobody cares. Same as when Tiger was in his prime (sorry Tiger). All TV cameras were on him and if he sneezed wrong, someone would call in a penalty on him. The other players could do what they wanted to because nobody was watching them. I'd like to investigate the NY and Connecticut attorney general's offices. There's bound to be some shenanigans I could easily find. There's more corruption...
The ironic thing about Apple's security is that it is required in order to be made available for US government users. Apple wasn't on par with Blackberry for mobile devices and until Filevault was released for OSX, it wasn't really allowed on government systems (classified and unclassified). Because of theft of government laptops, all laptops had to have full disk encryption before they could be taken outside the confines of the protected area. Some of this was to protect...
I did and the conversion just required a few agreements and I have everything now. A lot more to look at but I can't seem to find the older downloads for OSX.
One thing I was hoping for was an integrated method for reviewing and cleaning out the "Other" category on iOS devices. This continues to be a headache for many with the only way of getting around it is to increase your storage.
Great, I just renewed my Mac developer membership. I hope they will roll it over into the combined Program.
I was talking about direct fiber connections from a server thru a fiber switch to a fiber adapter at the workstation. This configuration allowed the server, switch, and workstation to be physically secured while the fiber cable was allowed to run through unsecured areas as long as it was continuous. With fiber's much longer distance capability than CAT5 cable, it allowed us to extend networks to other buildings without expensive secured conduit runs. There was no way to...
It's been my information that the only way to perform a non-intrusive tap of a fiber optic cable (meaning without simply inserting a physical tap into an existing line) was to use some kind of radioactive method. Fiber sends via light waves so there isn't any electromagnetic signal that can be tapped. This might have changed but it's one of the nice things about fiber. Physical taps can easily be discovered by the use of standard fiber optic test equipment. They show up as...
Apple is trying to get the license to stream (in real time) standard broadcast TV on their new streaming Apple TV product and is running into resistance. Remember the company that tried to re-stream broadcast TV and was finally shut down? Nobody has the right to re-stream copyrighted material without approval so Apple is just exercising its rights. People nowadays just don't understand that even though material is shown in the web, it is not free to reproduce or circulate...
