Wow, Solipsism is still here after all these years? Been a while since i've posted anything here.   The vast majority of people that steal things want to make fast and easy money. Steal phone, sell phone. Profit. Taking time and effort to carefully disassemble tons of iPhone parts isn't worth the hassle for a basic thief. Not to mention they'd have to steal a ton of phones to make a decent profit.    Look on eBay and you'll see the vast majority of listings are from...
I'd assume used parts would sell for significantly less than an actual working phone. You can't use the mainboard with the CPU and NAND flash as that's locked to the account, so you'd have a used screen, used battery, maybe camera module and home/lock/volume buttons and vibration motor. And I guess the aluminum casing but the serial number is engraved on that.
I still don't see the reason for this to exist. Even if it did exist, Apple would do something way more elegant than a hacky "split screen mode". Either you'd have an immersive full-screen app experience, or a windowed interface like in OS X. They wouldn't do some half-ass hybrid fullscreen resize and app switching thing like Windows 8, and certainly wouldn't have OS X with a touchscreen or iOS with a mouse/trackpad cursor. People have already tried hybrid Windows/Android...
I don't mind the advertisements and affiliate links, but I do think that AI should be responsible and give a disclaimer or something for full disclosure.
The uninformed conspiracy theorists are already out claiming the government is using this to spy on you and whatnot. The EAS doesn't receive any data, it only sends a broadcasts a signal whenever there's an emergency, like for a tornado or something. It's specifically designed this way so it doesn't clog up the cell towers with data in a real emergency.    It's like when you're listening to the radio and you hear the alert tones for the Emergency Alert System. You...

Lots of nice new features there, but not too keen on some of the new icons and the frosted look of "Control Center".
FYI, Brian Klug is a knowledgeable guy that writes for AnandTech. Don't confuse him with the developer that started this stupid rumor. He's the same guy that's been posting patches that supposidly make your phone's 3G/4G speeds a little faster, but it also kills battery life. Instead of apologizing or updating his article, the developer just deleted his blog post...
Looks like they're also using different test servers. One says Pima, AZ and the other says Phoenix, AZ. There's a lot more variables to connection speed than a simple speed test, or even just looking through obscure plist files.
I'm pretty sure Apple also has a policy on that too. A while ago, I bought a then brand-new 3rd gen iPod touch from Amazon, I turned it on for the first time, and saw it had a intermittently dead pixel. I bought it to a nearby Apple store. Because I had it for less than 14 days, they replaced it with a brand new one, not a refurb.
