Of the three that are in my family (none being used as phones any longer) all three still work - although one could use a new battery and one had some anomalies with the LCD when it was purchased used. I wonder how many 7 year old phones from other companies are still being used in any capacity.
 Or perhaps even just by osmosis - far easier to stand back and let your products be brought into a company because people there WANT your devices, which has effectively zero cast - that to spend massive amounts of money trying to force, uh I mean market, your way in. 
 Canada? Sounds more like something developed at the NSA headquarters 
 I doubt most people would have these installed on a solid glass doors - meaning that from outside there would be no way to know that such a device was installed. If you search on lock pics you will find that most types of locks have some sort of tool or device available for defeating them.  I am surprised someone hasn't put on their tin foil hat and claimed that the NSA or DHS is backing all these type of electronic locks as it would make the job of entering a building...
But what about the connector - I would like to get the extra battery life - and the extra storage is nice - but if I can't plug it into my car for both charge and sync without removing it from the case then it less useful. Not that anyone is really doing that - the closest I think I have seen is a battery pack that has a detachable cable from the pack to the phone meaning you can bypass it - which might work since the primary times you need the extra battery power are when...
Thank god - finally - someone has determined the most effective way to solve all inequities in the world based on gender - force Apple to have more women on the board of directors - and everything for ever after will be sunshine and puppy dogs.    If the pundits really want there to be more women in these positions I think they need to start at the bottom, not the top, meaning that such change is far more effective when it is pervasive and begins at the earliest stages...
 I am not sure that capitalism requires companies to be publicly traded. In fact I would think that the entire stock market system is something of a leach on the system and just like labor unions they once served a valuable purpose but have long since outgrown their initial function to take on a life of their own which retains only a glimmer of the original purpose.  In case that is not clear - in the case of unions, they came about at a time when working conditions and...
Never heard of either of them. I used to work for a guy whose business plan was to become a big enough local threat to the major national corporation to convince them to offer him a big fat check to shut down. Sadly didn't work out that way. Can't say that it was a bad model - a former business partner of his in a different state did succeed in that plan but only about a decade after the guy I worked for had sold out his interest in that business and moved back "home" at...
I'll vote for CashPlan - I have a Mac Server connected to a Promise Thunderbolt RAID array - and I use space limited sparse bundles as TImeMachine targets for all the Macs in the house - and also use share points as target locations for CrashPlan backups from non-Macs in the house as well as remote target for systems and servers at other locations. The one gap in my backup plan at the moment is that although I am the remote target for other locations I do not yet have a...
Regarding upgrading CPU/GPU - don't forget about firmware - not that I have any reason to think that the firmware is different between say 8 core and 12 core models - but I don't have any reason to think that it is all the same for all models. Just saying that the ability to swap one processor for another with the same pinout doesn't guarantee that everything will work. Back in the day I upgraded a G3 tower a couple of times and had to move jumpers and load new firmware -...
