I agree with the suggestion in the article - the combination of Smart Cover and Touch ID doesn't work so well.   The good news is that Apple is good at sorting out issues such as this (which is why they have the location-based security patent).   Personally, while at home I am content with having my iPad not require a passcode to unlock. Of course, Touch ID is required for purchases etc. Away from home, I want  the passcode to be required to unlock it.
This is a class-action suit so there may be some different rules that apply. I'm not a lawyer so I don't know, but I suspect you may be right. The lawyers probably had two "leads" in case of a problem but now they find there are issues with both. Oops. Courts take a dim view of1. their time being wasted2. lawyers not doing their homework.It would not surprise me if the Judge dismisses this case, maybe with prejudice, just to teach the lawyers that they need to do better...
Not quite. He didn't continue to do stuff there but he continued to be an employee. And still is, as far as I know.
Except that the network doesn't cover the whole of Texas. And, to be fair, the UK one doesn't fully cover the whole country. It does cost more to build a larger network. But the UK, unlike Texas, mandates a certain amount of infrastructure-sharing. That way they don't have the "huge" operators such as Verizon and AT&T so dominant in the market. UK is still an expensive market but the barrier to entry is not as big as it is in the U.S. Wall Street likes the U.S. model with...
Governance is the collective expression of the people.  Government is only as corrupt as we allow it to be. Sometimes that's a lot. Other times not much at all. There are always corrupting influences. The difference is in how dominant they become. However that's a discussion for a different thread - this one's about networks, not politics.
If we look back a century ago, it was precisely the abuses in the free market that led to the Anti-Trust laws and Government regulation. "Let the market sort it out" many have said in this thread. I agree that's desirable but there are times when the market system fails. And then the only remedy is government interference and regulation. We have to cautious about when to apply it but it is essential that the tool be there. Just think what we'd all be doing now if the Bush...
And if you have only one broadband provider, what threat is this ?  They laugh at you, and continue to provide crappy service, and you still have to pay.  Because the alternative is no service. Welcome to reality, Telco-style.
Interesting claim. I don't buy it. As far as I can see it makes no difference. If you have info to support the "more transparent" idea then you should share it. I am reminded of the protest signs on the Mall a couple of years ago ..."Get your Government hands off my Medicare" Competition is good as long as it's real competition. But telcos in many states (about twenty, I think) have encouraged (cough) State lawmakers to prevent municipalities and related entities from...
It's puzzling to me that Apple included NFC in iPad but not the antenna. I can understand that not many people would use iPad at a checkout but there are a number of other uses for it.   Since iPhone 6 does include the antenna (obviously) I can imagine that Square might also offer direct Apple Pay support TO an iPhone 6 and processed by Square. That'll have to wait for Apple to allow access to the NFC hardware though.
Actually, Square already said that, although the initial reader had been free, the chip-enabled one was non-trivially more expensive and they'd have to charge for it. I do expect that there'll be deals and bundles though.
