Hey sucker! (Your term of endearment I'm sure!) I know exactly what I pay for and what I don't. I do not have a line item on my bill for USA Today. The price may be built into the cost of the stay but some places they have a sponsor (a sticker on the paper proudly explains that this paper was brought to you compliments of blah- blah-blah). I would not take the thing unless it were truly free - very fluff content. I don't get the McNews comment - are you implying that...
Its hard to believe they can cut 130 people and not affect the quality of the paper they put out. I guess USA Today is the latest Yahoo or Google portal. Not so sure that is a good thing but I only read it when traveling since I usually get it free at the hotels I stay at. The realignment of the editorial to fit with marketing sounds fishy. Hard to keep much of an unbiased angle in your reporting that way eh?
Could be a really exciting event - if no one spoils it!
Duh. Smart move.
I haven't heard the fat lady sing yet on this deal...
Any bozo can plead innocent (as he has) but with the case they have, and his 'consultees' giving him up, it is not going to be easy to defend. Can you say plea bargain? As far as using this for a defense it will not fly with the conflict of interest and a pattern of his 'clients' always getting his bids. It also won't take too much to get somebody to rollover with the inside info - these clients all claim it was before they were acquired by another company or by a former...
You can bet that has/will be taken care of. This is SOP. I suspect that along with the civil suit he was served with papers enjoining him from representing Apple and/or setting foot on Apple property. I am sure the suppliers have also been told he is no longer a rep. Even California employment laws cannot protect you when they document you being a thief (they have good security folks in Apple to make sure this stuff is very limited shall we say.)
It is normally referred to as "disassembling" or disassembly" - it is actually quite easy. Most any debugger that can handle stepping thru asm code can also display the code. It is however more difficult to shows the symbols and comments. Although symbols can be left in a compiled source and then shown in the disassembled code - the comments however would not be kept and would not be restored in the disassembly process. Also, most code these days is written in 'C' or some...
It has nothing to do with jailbreaking (although the exploit can be used for that). It does however have to do with fixing a security flaw. I personally rather like security fixes as soon as they are available. Did you ever stop to consider that the other issues are a bit more complex to fix and therefore take longer - or would you really advocate holding this till the other stuff could be fixed sometime later - didn't think so. As far as loving it - not nearly as much as...
Interesting - I assume they want to close the door behind themselves (i.e., jailbreak then patch).
