We know the NSA and CIA spy on foreign countries including computer attacks. We also know the China government sponsors at least as much if not more hacking of US government installations. Neither is right but for China to attack Apple for this is ridiculous. Apple pays a lot of Chinese salaries, taxes (brides or whatever you want to call them), and any reduction in products will be felt. Of course, the Chinese government can simply buy Chinese and use the Android phones...
As I suggested above, I wouldn't mind having my HOA (only 50+ houses) set up a neighborhood WiFi network, using WPA2 along with a password known to association members. Everyone who pays dues gets the password. Sound fair? Of course I don't see it happening but it's an idea that might work in certain situations. 
In the best of worlds, all this fiber would be placed underground so it's less susceptible to damage. Unless you want to push power over the fiber, you'll still need power for the wireless routers in the utility boxes, which can be on the ground or up a pole, unless of course you don't have poles. I'm not against providing fiber or broadband to every house, it's just not as easy as many people think. I just had part of my front yard dug up to replace the Comcast cable for...
I just checked and you're right. You can set encryption (WPA/WPA2) but these need a password. Of course, it wouldn't take much publicity to get people to use a standard password. This means a user would still have to enter the password for every password-protected guest network but maybe that could be automated.  Correct me if I'm wrong, but even if a hacker makes the guest connection using my password-protected guest connection, all they would see is their traffic and...
I haven't seen this requirement in the western country I live in and I have no way to provide this information if someone asked me. My Airport Extreme lists wireless clients but doesn't keep a log, at least not when running the current version of Airport Utility. 
I get them via Software Update. I changed to the App Store version with 1.6.4 January 2011. I don't do any updates automatically. I don't know of a way to find all the updates I've installed for each application so I posted a forum comment.  I know this post has nothing to do with Aperture or Lightroom so I'll stop my comments.
I checked out Pixelmator's Support/Updates page and found the following: ( I bought it at version 1.3.1, December 11, 2008)http://support.pixelmator.com/updatesPixelmator 3.2 Sandstone (Released on May 22, 2014)Pixelmator 3.1 Marble (Released on January 23, 2014)Pixelmator 3.0 FX (Released on October 22, 2013)Pixelmator 2.2.2 (Released on October 14, 2013)Pixelmator 2.2.1 (Released on September 24, 2013)Pixelmator 2.2 (Released on May 09, 2013)Pixelmator 2.1.4 (Released on...
True with me. I use the AI app as well as other site specific apps to stay away from as many ads as possible. Do you know if Chitika tracks ads on standalone apps, like AI's?
I'll wait to see how Photos shapes up and where it's going before even thinking about using an Adobe product ever again. Pixelmator and Acorn are getting better every day and iDraw does as much vector drawing as I need to do for a whole lot less money.
I hate to admit it but I'm starting to look at all Korean-based products with caution. I already won't buy Samsung products but am adding Hyundai and Kia as well as not even looking at tires made by Hankook. It brings me back to those days past where anything made in Japan was suspect. There's no way around buying products made in China but being made in a country can be different from being made by a company based in a foreign country (Samsung vs. Apple).
