Data stored on "secure" cloud vs individual, encrypted, user remote wipeable device. Aka losses would millions of bank accounts vs an unlikely one in the event of an attack. I don't think he thought this one through... either that or this guy has and is worse than Eric Schmidt.
My wife taught at a private high school who did one to one iPads to students. It was actually quite successful. The iPad was part of the tuition and after the kids graduated they got to keep it. The tech there knew how to manage the stuff and had a set of approved software that was installed on the device. They had purchased some digital books for the iPad instead of textbooks - it was probably split 25/75% to 50/50%. The school also had apple TVs hooked up to...
He doesn't need to prove anything? Any good computer scientist/engineer/specialist is going to ask him to.You are falling into the logical fallacy of appealing to authority. Just because someone who is knowledgeable in a given field says something is true, does not necessarily make it true.
I did. It read more from a standpoint of what is theoretically possible. I never saw a step by step WORKING example. I saw some naive code examples of how it could be possible that demonstrates the core idea. I also find it funny the mention of being able to spoof the fingerprint reader. I remember when news of that released. It basically required a perfect fingerprint under perfect conditions in order to work. Its POSSIBLE, but how likely is it?I never said what...

He's read to many Daniel Eran Dilger articles. I avoid them like the plague.
I can't wait till iOS 8 so I can install adblock plus and ghostery in safari so when I accidentally click on a Daniel Eran Dilger piece he will not get any ad money for the Tl;DR articles or other junk he writes. Most of his articles are a waste of time, even if I do agree with him 85% of the time.
The phrase "the fact that" bugs the heck out of me. It is unnecessary. It could easily be replaced with just the word "that".
Absolutist: There are absolutes we all must adhere to. Relativist: There are no absolutes. Absolutist: You just made an absolute statement, and therefor self contradicted yourself. All relativists are relative relativists. They are ok with everybody believing whatever until what someone else believes infringes on what they believe. Relativist: What is right for me is right for me, and what is right for you is right for you. Absolutist: I believe it is ok for me to steal...
Macalope vs Kane would be much funnier. DED has a tendency to dig himself into holes he doesn't realize he's in.
