I live in Brooklyn, NY and the result I get (the same as in the above picture) on iOS 6 is also in Brooklyn. This looks to me like a correct search result. I will try the same search tonight when I am in Manhattan and see if Apple is taking my current location for clues to how to complete the incomplete search request used as the test. When I use a complete search request: 315 e 15th st manhattan ny I get the same result as the Razr I seem to recall in the early days...
      TS, you're going to confuse him. This will end badly (cringe at impending train wreck).
I remember being surprise to discover that car rental companies made most of their money from reselling rental cars after they had been used for a year (leveraging initial bulk purchase discounts from the manufacturer) together with their "optional" insurance. Not, as most people think, from the actual rental fee.   I remember being surprise to discover that reseller catalogs make most of their money from the advertising space they sell in their catalogs and not via a...
Yup, looks like I'm completely off base there. What use is UDID to the FBI when they can get IMEI and ICCID codes from the service provider? How would they be expected to use the UDID to further their "investigations"?
Wouldn't the UDID be required to associate a cell-tower connection with a particular mobile device?

Hopefully with some kind of warrant, but nowadays (Patriot Act etc.) who knows? I doubt a phone hack is needed for this information to become available to the FBI should they want it for some reason.   I'd like to know if the numbers in the...
I was curious why there were no iPhones on display at my local AT&T store and was told they had been removed because they kept getting stolen. When I pointed out that the implication was that the phones actually on display were not worth stealing, the sales guy was not amused.
The poll results were even more skewed before they changed the winning answer from I don't need no steenkeen' LTE Apparently they wanted the result to be taken a little more seriously.
(with apologies to Mae West)... Only if new tech normally has that effect on you.
The jury is not on trial. Hanging them seems a bit extreme, don't you think?
Here's a completely off the wall idea:   Why not make the Apple Store a place that people can hang out in, kick the tires, explore the wonderful Apple technology all around them, chat with some knowledgeable people in Apple uniforms who are there to make people comfortable that Apple will always respond to their needs. Perhaps these employees can point interested visitors at some relevant demonstrations that are scheduled to take place soon. Heck, call me crazy, but...
