Marketing.  When you're a fan of something on the basis of it being "open", then you need to paint the other guy as locking you in to a "closed" system even if that isn't really the case, otherwise your belief system falls apart and you are exposed as the snivelling little weakling you really are. I think I'll watch some porn on my iPhone, just because I can.
 They found a 65 year old woman who bought an iPod for her ice skating lessons, in the court she seemed confused with not much idea of what it was all about, although apparently she did learn to skate backwards.
Enjoy your DRM'd Realplayer music then. One of these days I'll get around to cleaning up the tags on the back up copies of purchased songs I downloaded via napster in the nineties under the fair use doctrine we have in this country, early MP3 tags don't work so well on an iPhone 6. Tags look like this 01.01.01.01.Song.etc Too bad Real's DRM broke iTunes ability to load anything you want.
It seems like whoever made the decision to make the sapphire themselves is to blame, kind of like Ford or Chevrolet executives deciding that they will drive the company's race cars.   Can't they lease these furnaces out to skilled operators?
Apple should ask for costs in this frivolous, time wasting case and leave the confused, last minute plaintiff to return to her ice skating.
No we haven't. We got rid of signature based transactions in August, our terminals still have the magnetic strip reader and we get the odd non-Australian credit card transaction where a signature is still required. I'm on my fourth card for one of my accounts because the chips keep failing, the latest card has a different design, maybe this card will last longer. I've never seen anyone pay with a phone, despite a few of our banks jumping on board with Samsung, Apple Pay...
The crapware Samsung phones are preloaded with demand this change of settings when they try to update themselves.They are the number one Android vendor so a lot of Android users are having this decision forced on them.So much crap, Android just sucks.
Such as if you want to use Amazon or Samsung App stores? 3rd party software installers. Amazon's App got booted out of Play the other day, was that because it worked as a third party installer?
 Plenty of other sites you can go to if you prefer a homogenised view of the world. The greyness of the people in Apple's 1984 ad campaign springs to mind, if you can't handle DED throwing the odd sledge hammer at the mainstream, then what are you doing here?
The corporate software I use allows the use of Touch ID on my iPhone, it doesn't for the Galaxy S5 they have to use a pattern or passcode.   Result = whine, whine, whine.
