If we believe in a legal system designed to *rehabilitate* criminals, this is definitely the right response from Apple.It *is* punitive while they are serving time, public service, paying fines for their crime. Once they've moved beyond that and society prevents them from pursuing honest work and reforming we're now exploring a punitive that adds incentive for people to turn back to crime. It's one thing in a sensitive scenario such as teaching, but quite another in...
I've no more love for LaCie. I'd pay the premium on their products if it was for better products but I've been amazed how quickly and consistently their hard drives have failed for myself and for friends/clients. A pretty enclosure does not a high quality product make.
Hilarious because Samsung's on the receiving end (to a much lesser extent—the media will show nowhere near the same interest in this story) of what they dished out earlier when bendgate was hyped up for Apple, but it's no more a story than it was for Apple last year. Interesting to see some people a little quick to make the same generalizations they were likely frustrated with previously applied to the iPhone 6. Same would apply to Samsung fans who reveled in the iPhone...
The 25% of that speed (6.25 Mbps / 1 Mbps) most certainly does not do all that many of us 'need'*, especially if service quality fluctuates. And once someone is looking at online streaming, especially in a shared household with multiple computer users, it becomes even worse. It is far to say that it is adequate for a number of people, but the merit to that position tapers off when your audience is other people in a technology-related forum.And it's not so important a...
They have never had trouble creating their own reasons.This is a good thing. It would be easy to overstate how good it is, and much of that will depend on the extent to which this change is tied to regulation and policy, but it is important for this definition to keep pace with technology advancements.
To be fair, it *is* a problem in the United States. Apple participates in some of the same offshore tax avoidance schemes that are popular among other corporations, though they're not nearly one of the biggest offenders. It seems silly to single out Apple in this, but there's definitely room to for a legitimate conversation about the subject.Same goes for an argument regarding corporations playing a disproportionate role in politics.
Well, if Apple is working with iDevices, and not suing them for some kind of trademark concern in their name, doesn't that serve as evidence within your own statement that your statement is not correct?
Eh, you're reading too much into the data available to say it is 'highly unlikely'. What is 'highly unlikely' is that North Korea did it on their own. And it *is* possible that North Korea wasn't involved, but not 'highly unlikely'. What we do know is that there's room to question claims leveled by the FBI based on information they've released. With so much firmly in the 'unknown' or 'uncertain' category, you're drawing too many conclusions.Here's a recent article on Ars...
For a payout, obviously.And it's not the first lawsuit associated with advertised storage space.
Maybe the lawsuit will be deemed without merit, but can you really argue that there's no disconnect here?When you buy that 16 GB iPhone you absolutely are not getting 16 GBs. All you get to do anything meaningful with is whatever is left over of that 16 GB after any storage required for the device to run is subtracted. And there's another major issue here, though not represented directly in the lawsuit: Apple sells 8 GB devices which for many casual users will not be...
