 I do something similar. Of course, sophisticared spammers could remove the +keyword part from the user+keyword@domain.tld format address, but since few people do this, it works rather well.Of course, one could start using encrypted front-parts for e-mail addresses, so only the mail server could then transform upon receipt something like 234ae9534da2342cf1234fa0@domain.tld back into user+keyword@domain.tldThe beauty of the user+keyword@domain.tld system is, that it also...
Doesn't really help, because real spammers, the ones you want to defend against, they don't use fixed resource URLs but resource query URLs that have an identifier of the precise message (and thus email address) that the query comes from.So instead of something likehttp://www.somehost.tld/images/someImage.jpgyou have something likehttp://www.somehost.tld/resourcequery.cgi?messageid=1234567890abcdef&resource=someImage&resourcetype=jpgor some significantly more convoluted...
Should be considered a matter of national security given that we all know how important propaganda (corporate media news) and pacification (sports and entertainment) are to keep the public peacefully and quietly at bay.If there's no ample supply of TVs, the country could blow up in a civil war...To prevent the ability of the enemy to subvert the country like this, there's but one solution: free, made-with-pride-in-the-USA TVs for all!
Pity. Sony makes good hardware and services well many niches Apple doesn't want to bother with. I'd much rather see eventually a Sony camera with iOS than with winRT or 'droid. Sony also doesn't believe in low-price crap, so friendly competition between Sony and Apple on the hardware front would have been beneficial to all without being ruinous to either company.
Just what I need a Google bug in my home, telling them all my habits. GeoIP along with "smart" thermostats that "learn" when someone is home => total surveillance.
 So can iOS devices, just ask the NSA... That's why it's imperative that users have root access to their devices, and in absence thereof, they can root/jailbreak their devices, because that's the ONE defense vector they have against covert hacking: monitoring the system at a low level, something AppStore apps will never be able to do.
 Key thing which few people seem to focus on: the Audi tablet is what one would call "MIL-spec", i.e. designed to operate properly after having been left in the car on a cold Minnesota/Siberia winter night and continuing to work after having left baking inside the car in the desert sun in Death Valley. Have you ever bothered to look at the operating and non-operating temperature specs for the iPad? Not exactly designed for that sort of use.The iPhone more than once shut...
 VW is a company. Brands OWNED by that company are: VW, Porsche, Audi, Lamborghini, Bugatti, SEAT, Skoda, Ducati, Bentley, Scania, MAN.BMW as a company owns merely BMW, Mini, and Rolls Royce, but I think they don't even get to use Rolls Royce engines anymore, because they just bought the car brand, not the engine business, which is why e.g. Rolls Royce jet engines are NOT BMW products.Audi competes with and surpasses BMW in just about every aspect, except for...
This is the logical consequence of Apple being too closed. Does anyone think the car companies want to be owned by Apple like the mobile carriers or the record labels are? Does anyone wonder why the rumored AppleTV still isn't a real product? It's all the same: just like Microsoft in the past, Apple doesn't enter into real partnerships, but aims to make any partner the underdog and dictate to them the terms. When you start your Audi, Audi wants you to see an Audi logo, not...
Apple has all of OSX running on ARM, and all of iOS on Intel, just like they used to have it running on PPC and x86.Further iOS and OSX have the identical core OS called Darwin, and the same core foundation libraries.80-90% of the code is probably identical, except one has CocoaUI and the other CocoaTouchUI which can be merged into a single context sensitive version of Cocoa; anyone ever giving a thought why Apple is pushing constraint based auto layout of apps? Because...
