 Voice calling isn't exactly bandwidth heavy.
 If Apple wants to encourage developers to be memory efficient, why don't they just set memory limits in their app store policies? Forcing the issue at the hardware level seems the wrong way to go, as it ignores various use cases where a large amount of RAM is legitimately needed (such as web browsing).
While Apple's current implementation requires a mobile network connection, what if Apple were to add support for time-based one-time passwords like those supplied by Google Authenticator? Then the system would work just like those industry-standard 2-factor setups that use RSA keyfobs.
With a chip and PIN system, only the person who knows the PIN can use the card. The purpose of TouchID would be to authenticate the person in possession of the card, which is exactly what a PIN does. In fact TouchID is essentially a PIN that is forever tied to your phone's hardware and cannot be changed by the user. As iOS backs TouchID by a PIN and not the other way around, Apple seems to regard TouchID as a convenient method of authentication but subordinate to a...
Apple's implementation of two-factor only protects certain iCloud services. In particular, two-factor protection does not extend to photo streams (http://techcrunch.com/2014/09/02/apples-two-factor-authentication-doesnt-protect-icloud-backups-or-photo-streams/).
Why would they do that unless they were hacking just for the sake of hacking an Apple system? What if the hack was merely a step toward a bigger objective?
Isn't this sort of how airplane inertial navigation systems work? You fix an initial position, and the system computes your current position by tracking your acceleration and using newton's equations of motion. It's how airplanes tracked their position before the era of GPS.
The graphics cards in question are probably not standard parts either. They are integrated with Apple's custom graphics switching hardware.
I wonder why Apple doesn't further distinguish itself from other PC manufacturers by providing 3 years of warranty as standard. Even the Mac Pro comes standard with only one year of warranty; in contrast, Dell workstations start with three years of onsite service with the option of up to five years of coverage. If Apple computers do last longer on average than PCs, such a move would give its products a major vote of confidence at little financial risk. A product's warranty...
There's an important difference between this case and Apple's litigation involving Samsung. This case is being adjudicated in East Texas.
