Apple would be better off to integrate with diaspora.org's software, have diaspora as a module of OS X Server. That would undermine the importance of these networks and truly do something for user privacy. If they want, the could also run diaspora on icloud.
The question is: will the watch "replace" what's missing from the iPhone 5/5s/5c and enable these models wirelessly with NFC or will it only act as a remote wrist relay for the iPhone 6/6+
People who understand computers don't like walled gardens due to security concerns.Trust is nice, control is better.Unless as an owner you have the option to access your own device as root, which allows monitoring processes and network connections, tracing the kernel, etc. you don't know what your device does.You would never know if your iOS device is a permanent bugging device for the NSA, because trusting Apple is nice, but useless in an age of gag orders.Particularly a...
There are good and bad tech journalists. The good ones understand a product philosophy, the bad ones just project their own feature wish list into a review.As tech journalists they have little influence.Anand however showed an understanding of what Apple products try to achieve, while also understanding where they fell flat.If in his new position at Apple he's able to remedie even just some of the things he criticized in his reviews, Apple's products will improve...
Skype version 2.8 was great: Multiple windows of open chats that could me manually sorted, e.g. one for business, one for family, one for friends, one for temporary contacts, with people sorted by a mixture of importance, frequency of communication, etc. Now there's only one window and everyone is alphabetically ordered. Too easy to send a business contact an "I love you" or a family member a "I never want to see you again"... In short, with the GUI changes that came...
Have an old Samsung laser printer, works just fine with OS X. Only problem: for whatever reason its drivers are NOT included in the Samsung printer driver package that Apple has for download, I have to download a specific driver from Samsung's web site, best to use the international site rather than their U.S. site. Has been rather reliable for many years, just like with almost all printers these days: toner/drum replacement is almost as expensive as a new printer, and a...
That all depends on the contract......there could be non-compete clauses in there for particular market segments, etc.Lawyer protecting their clients (and their income streams) often try to pack in escape clauses in more or less ambiguous language that may or may not be caught by opposing party.Further, licensing agreement generally have clauses in there that void the contract in case of mergers, although usually restricted to the licensee; that's why a small start-up...
No, they are not. Just most people are so poor and uninteresting schmucks that they are at best useful as click-bait.Start owning some real assets, be in charge of industry or military secrets, be in opposition to any government, etc. and your perspective will change rapidly because ppl who are after what you have will stop at nothing to get what they want.
Certainly not if you have any sensitive info.This is the kind of attack vector usable e.g. Infiltrate malicious code into nuclear facilities.One USB stick handed out as advertising at a tradeshow is all that's needed, after that it propagates itself...Scary shit, just as troublesome the firmware in each Thunderbolt device.What it boils down to is this:Plug & play is and remains plug & pray.If you need to install drivers manually, you can choose not to install, you can...
Nope. Patent trolls are non-utilizing entities, just trying to make a quick buck out of patents they bought up for cheap.Patenting and preventing from being used an inferior but practicable approach such as to promote a superior implementation of a similar process is market strategy and the whole purpose of patents.One may not believe in the patent system, and there are many good reasons for doing so, but within the intended scope of the patent system as it exists this is...
