 Of course they're not "working out of a basement". There are so many other issues I have with this that make me skeptical. - Would Apple even allow someone to download that many Apps? At what point do they realize this isn't normal behavior and investigate? Apple must monitor traffic and a large amount going to a certain IP should raise the alarm.- How are they downloading them? Surely they don't have a bunch of people using iTunes to download them. Which makes me think...
 I did read their blog. I don't have a problem with their methodology of scanning an App - this is how virus scanners work. What I find unbelievable is that they claim to have downloaded virtually all the Apps in the App Store. I'm curious how they would even do that, and also curious how much money that would cost them. Also curious how they could download them all fast enough to even keep up with updates. How much bandwidth would that even require?
First off, this isn't Apple's problem. It's a problem with code provided by AFNetworking (as pointed out by leavingthebigG).   Second, this company (SourceDNA) claims they have the ability to scan EVERY single App in the App Store to search for such flaws.   I'm REALLY curious how they can make such a claim.
Waaaaaiiiiiit a second. I thought the Apple Watch was a failure? What's with all the posters talking about their orders being processed? Must be Apple fanboys¡
 I don't think they'd use any smartphone at all. Long before we had smartphones organized criminals or terrorists had no troubles communicating. Either behind closed doors or by using simple pre-arranged terms when talking on any phone (which they assumed would be recorded). I think they'd use burner phones they picked up at 7-11 for simple communication, and anything that was truly sensitive would simply be passed along in person.
Who cares about celebrities wearing the Apple Watch. . . . . . Didn't anyone see the new Star Wars trailer?
Ignorant of production planning? Why does Apple have to change fabs at the last minute?Most likely is Apple had both TSMC and Samsung/GF fabbing the A9 and have been monitoring yields for months now. After seeing the results they made a decision as to production spit. So Apple can make a last minute decision based on months of planning/production/testing.
 If you want to do business there, you have to play by their rules. A lot of people don't like the US patent system (and think the European one is superior), but if companies want to do business in the US they abide by US rules. No point in complaining about it. Unless you think that every country in the world should align their laws so that everything from patents to copyright to antitrust to taxes is the same no matter where you go.  However, I was surprised by this....
 He can't. Samsung USED to provide these numbers, but they stopped after the dismal failure that was the GS5 and Note 4.
Don't forget the time Samsung announced 9 million per-orders for the GS3, then announced 10 million sales in under 2 months (55 days). So I gues it took 54 days to sell the other 1 million after the first 9 million were pre-orders?This idiot doesn't understand the difference between customers purchasing a device and retailers placing stock orders. Obviously that 9 million was stock purchases which were spread out over 55 days of actual customer sales. But it sure looks...
