This is excessive—ridiculous, even... it absolutely should be allowed within an historic context, such as representing sides in an historic battle simulation. Same would apply to the swastika used in historic context to represent the Nazi party.
Yep... Apple needs to step up their game in Cloud storage and services.
It should be much more complicated than this. Apple devices have been rendering all manner of special glyphs (whether foreign or otherwise) for quite some time now—and messages which contain a combination of basic Latin characters and multi-byte Unicode characters. It is also not very difficult to recognize the boundaries between these characters and break (e.g. add an ellipsis) at those points. Now, if they're trying to do something fancy which scans for appropriate...
What's the harm? It doesn't hurt anything as long as they've read the article. It's nothing like a layman deliberately installing malware where long-lasting harm may be done to the system; where the harm may require a more experienced hand to be resolved.Testing every character that's supported wouldn't be hard. It's in the combinations of characters that the circumstance becomes effectively impossible to test. Rather, the approach would be to write code which should be...
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.
