 This sounds very much like the "Apple will never make a smaller iPad. Steve said I'd have to file down my finger tips to use one if they did. Every tablet smaller than the iPad has failed so it would be stupid for Apple to make one." ...enter iPad mini.
 There is definitely some disagreement between the various "first look" articles on the level of edit controls available. I expect MacWorld staffers were a bit more thorough in kicking the tires. So if the above statement is correct, then as far as edit controls I think I'd be fine with Photos. But organizationally, I think I'm may find it horribly lacking. Personally, here is what I would struggle with: 1) Apple's idea of automatically organizing my photos into...
 But of course it's far more complicated than that. Do you really think that the billions of dollars of profit that Apple books in Ireland (at very low tax rate) was only from products sold in Ireland? Or is some of that Ireland profit really revenue from sales in another country which was written off as an expense to license/use intellectual property owned by Apple Ireland? Edit: I should add lest anyone thing otherwise, I think Obama's plan is a horrible idea. Even if...
 With you there on the first point. I don't use iCloud email either. As for the second, realizing everyone will have their own preference, I actually prefer the approach of having email, calendar, etc, in a single app. Invitations (which some of us do use for personal use) in Apple's model leaves much to be desired, especially if you interoperate with people using non-Apple tools. iCal in general is a relatively limited calendar app (even for my personal use). Mind you,...
 I'm pretty sure iCloud email isn't running on Exchange server. So if it doesn't support IMAP, how is it connecting to iCloud, Gmail, and Yahoo mail? I can't get to iTunes right now to verify what the description says Outlook is actually supporting, but just because the AI article didn't list IMAP I wouldn't automatically assume it doesn't support it.
 That only applies if you've used 3rd party software to enable TRIM support on non-Apple installed SSDs. Put simply, such software modifies a signed Apple kext file which upon installing a system update risks causing the file to not load (fails validation because it's been modified) and bricking your system.
 But I suspect the point was that something like that shouldn't be hardcoded into the system software. It shouldn't require a .x release (or even a .Y.x release) to add new channels. It should be more akin to a data table that can be updated via a non-system software update rather than make the new channels wait for an OS update to deploy. That said, there may be performance reasons for doing it the way they do. And it certainly a good carrot to get people to update their...
 This is a very selective viewpoint you have, conveniently ignoring that Snowden disclosed far more than you are admitting to. There are very few people here who are condemning Snowden for revealing that the US government may be spying on American citizens, which is illegal if not done with the proper court order, warrants, etc. Many of us wish he would have gone about that revelation in another way, and some believe that the way he did it was illegal, but that’s not what...
One other note...read the entire page that AI links go. There is NOTHING on that page that suggests this iPhone exploit was ever successfully developed. The status is listed as "in development". The verbs used in the last paragraph about the strategy are all future tense, referring to potential future use of the exploit. It even says that the development (which was still underway) was only aimed at creating an exploit that requires direct access to the iPhone. Any ten year...
 That picture was from a well known and open meeting between Obama and tech CEOs about how to bring jobs back to the US. The meeting was not a secret and was reported on in the press at the time that it happened. Now, we can't say for certain that there wasn't any side discussion about letting the NSA install backdoors in their products, but do you really think Obama would be the one leading those discussions? In any event, that photo in no way supports that any such...
