Mandela should give up, too, he'll never end apartheid......oh, he's dead, and no more apartheid.GIVING UP IS NEVER AN OPTION! FU
Exactly, because that is the state a Mac is in. The stupid default passwords only exists because Apple assumes that users are locked out. If iOS devices were "factory jailbroken" like every Mac OS X computer ever shipped, that potential vulnerability doesn't exist because setting passwords is part of the setup routine.You can't compare the state of an incompetly jail broken iOS device with a device that is set up under the assumption that the owner will have admin...
The people "reasoning" against jailbreaking obviously don't know what they are talking about, so let's clear up a few misconceptions here:   a) Jailbreaking makes the iPhone less secure! FALSE! Jailbreaking *exploits* preexisting security holes in the iPhone, forcing Apple to fix these holes and leaving one less wormhole for three letter agencies and other thiefs to control your device without you being aware of it. So the very fact that there is a jailbreaking scene...
 This is the most ridiculous piece of reasoning I've read in a long time.According to you, a manufacturer has the right to decide how you use a product you paid for, as a consequence e.g.:a) you are a criminal if you blow up CDs in a microwave oven, because that's not what they were designed for, and because you don't own the software that controls the deviceb) you're a criminal because you use a screwdriver as a chisel because it says on the handle "Do not use as a...
Neither the people replying nor the people writing the article (want to) get it. Jailbreaking is first and foremost about taking ownership of a device paid for; there would be no need to find or break security measures if Apple gave legitimate owners of a device legitimate means to access the hardware as master (i.e. root) rather than as a chattel/child with Apple as big daddy. It's perfectly fine for Apple to support only specific configuration, it's not fine for Apple...
Fingerprint scanner: SOL, probably originally developed for the 5 not the 5s.Home button not required, there are BT keyboard codes for it e.g. the Logitech iPad case with rubber keyboard has such a button
Exactly, and since such a device is for power users make it a tad thicker and put a bigger battery in such as to not only power the keyboard but also extend the iPhone's battery life.
I love security cameras, I love voice recognition.I HATE security cameras that don't have a built-in web server and instead require you to stream your life to a 3rd party service where you can access your own video feed through a web page, and I HATE voice recognition that's cloud based.Until such point when Apple allows users to own their iOS devices (read gives them root access so you can inspect processes and network connections to see what's going on), and until Siri...
 As is, I agree. But I think versions could be fixed by simply making a distinction between autosave and save. The regular cmd-s semantics should remain, and auto-save should happen in the background to a different fork in the version tree. That way, if the app crashes, etc. work can resume, but the what's saved is saved just like it used to be. Then, there should be a different command "save snapshot" which would be the same as saving a copy, except it appends a time...
 If all you do is write letters to Auntie Beth, then versions are useless. If you work in any sort of collaborative work environment on real projects, versions are great. I would just prefer a different sort of interface that would keep file saving semantics the same and would distinguish between auto-save and save, and user-initiated versions that also keep track of who made the changes, but that would go against Apple's desire to (over)simplify things. Given their drive...
