A well written article, possibly one of the best AI articles that I have read in some time.
Apple are only offering UK customers £215 when they sell them at £269.95. Why only a partial refund?
Honestly constable, the only time that I interacted with my watch was whilst the car was sitting at a red light. I completely ignored all notifications and was happy to listen to my play list whilst in transit
 Even more odd, on the sample refund form, they ask for both the purchase and delivery date, even though delivery will negate your right to a refund.
 Additionally the VAT rates charged for iTunes purchases are currently 23%. Apple's iTunes servers are base in Ireland. Apple could charge the VAT rates applicable in Luxembourg if they wanted to but they decided to charge EU customers the Irish VAT rate. The changes should benefit the majority of customers  ******EDIT********** http://store.apple.com/uk/help/payments#tax  Why do I pay 23% VAT on Electronic Software Download orders and other products which are classified...
You almost seem to endorsing Apple's stance, assuming that Computer Bild's claims about being ostracised are true.   I don't speak German, so I don't know how favourable the review was (aside from the bending part), however, if the bending of the phone was not sleight of hand, it does raise some serious questions.   I can see that a firm would not want to offer grace and favours to a publication which has a history of maligning them but that firm cannot expect a...
The largest European computer magazine claims to have been sent to Coventry by Apple for bending an iPhone 6.   http://www.computerbild.de/artikel/cb-News-Handy-Apple-boycotts-COMPUTER-BILD-An-open-letter-to-Tim-Cook-10953399.html   Whilst Apple have not officially responded to Computer Bild's open letter it does raise some serious questions about the subjectivity of the press in the light of BendGate/BendGhazi.   Although I doubt that the average punter will...
Thanks it hadn't occurred to me that the forensics software would be sending/receiving the encryption tokens. See page 13 http://www.elcomsoft.co.uk/PR/recon_2013.pdf Clearly, the seamless nature with which the software decrypts the files had lead others to assume that there was no encryption. I had thought it odd that the phone would encrypt the data and then it would be decrypted on the server.
I too am unsure about the back ups. Indeed, the Apple site says that they are encrypted, however as you say, Mashable are one of a  number of sites that have used the EPPB software. Each of those sites claim that the back ups are not encrypted  http://mashable.com/2014/09/04/i-hacked-my-own-icloud-account/?utm_cid=Mash-Prod-RSS-Feedburner-All-Partial
 Agreed, most users of any platform will just go for the options provided by the vendor.  So Apple users will opt for icloud, droid owners Google and WP users- OneDrive. Whilst the price drops are welcomed, I suspect that most users will be happy to live within the free limits (regardless of OS).  I really can't see consumer grade cloud space being much of a money spinner whilst cellular data tariffs are so limited. Ironically the use of the cloud and subsequent increase...
