That's true, there are lots of companies with access to sensitive data. Internet service providers for people not using encrypted connections have even more access to info because every single piece of data has to pass through their servers before it even gets to Google - this might be the motivation in moving everything to SSL encryption. Banks have huge amounts of data too, all your purchase records. That always gets me when bank employees (especially ones that look like...
Here's the thing though, outside of scenarios where Google explicitly knows not to track people, Google is tracking everyone by default. They don't know who is a kid and who isn't unless the kid tells them; if they use a parent's device, Google doesn't know any different. If you assume they're tracking adults and you're comfortable with that, they have to be tracking kids in exactly the same way. I of course use Google services as I use Google like most people do and was a...
Google is a publicly traded company with a business model that operates on advertising. What any company tries to do is make the best success of the business model they choose. They push it as far as they can get away with. Fans on the outside try to project a persona onto companies to make them feel better and make definitive statements on their behalf like "children aren't tracked, period". Then when it's found otherwise, it changes to 'oh, well they don't do it now so...
Like this you mean?http://safegov.org/2014/1/31/google-admits-data-mining-student-emails-in-its-free-education-appshttp://www.huffingtonpost.com/sue-scheff/google-apps-for-education_b_5083478.htmlYou have to remember though that anything-but-Apple products are better than Apple products and if you don't think so, you're not impartial enough.
An external portable drive doesn't negate the advantages of a laptop but you have to think about performance. You can't work with 4K footage or heavy image files on a laptop hard drive because it's too slow. Saving files takes forever. Every time you save or open a 1GB project to a HDD, it'll take about 20 seconds vs 2 seconds on an SSD. If you have to work with files like this, chances are you can afford to get the larger drives.To move the base 15" MBP to 1TB SSD costs...
You'd have to find a space for a HDD first:Going backwards would mean making the whole machine thicker again in order to stack components. There is no possibility to go back at this point.This issue is not a lack of options, you can get a 1TB SSD just as you can get a 1TB HDD, the problem is just how much that costs. For the time being, for people who can't afford that internally, the route is cheaper external SSDs or HDDs. The following 1TB SSD is still a bit expensive at...
Everything that can be seen in portrait can be seen in landscape with different framing. See bathroom scene here from Eyes Wide Shut filmed in widescreen (NSFW):http://yardsofgrapevine.files.wordpress.com/2012/09/eyes-wide-shut-toilet.jpgPortrait video works for Facetime because faces are taller than wide but that's the front camera. Everything shot on the rear camera can default to landscape with an option to force it portrait. Not only landscape but default to always...
A few people mention scratches here:https://discussions.apple.com/thread/4820535but nothing like what you have, half your display is broken. Are those scratches all the way down the left side of the display? Could a pet have jumped on it when you weren't looking or do you carry it in a rucksack or something? That sort of thing wouldn't happen just by having it closed on a desk, there's a rubber strip round the display.There's no way they can tell it's not accidental...
The long crash log when you hit the report button.
Another route they could go is to have the separate parts surround the camera lens like this: I purposely put a lighter circle round the lens to show the separation but they could be blended together. So there are 4 quadrants and you'd have speakers to the left and right, proximity sensor up top and flash down below. They could even make a two tone flash but the orange might be a bit distracting. The flash could have a digital filter to hide it when not in use though or...
