 I think you (and a lot of people) have assumed that "…two years without issue and now that Apple is coming out with the Apple Watch it's suddenly an issue…". It may indeed be the issue, it may not. I have seen nothing but inuindo for the Watch being the problem. Either way it is Apple's storefront and the developers are bound by the rules. They supposedly read before they signed and acquiescence by does not negate an agreement that was and is legal. Apple has the right...
ROFL!"…might [w]ant to look…". Glass house and stones and such  !
Me thinks you are not very informed as to developing Watch apps. The App's heavy lifting is done on the iPhone -- if you have an iPhone app then you can extend it to do stuff while interacting with the watch. This means that the vast majority of those apps already existed as Apps and available as AppStore purchasable (or are now). If in fact it was a case where there were 3000 standalone apps I would have my doubts also, but it is not. The only one Jacking here is you and...
 How can you claim it is bogus when it is the rules (as mentioned in the article). If they don't like it then sure, appeal, but don't call something bogus cause you decide now that they are enforcing it is bogus.
 True enough -- but I thought it was funny that you chose the example that seemed to be so obviously common sense. Not trying to dis you -- I was shocked when I first encountered this with my VW (also pissed) but now laugh. I meant no offense and do agree with your final stmt. Have a good day,Cheers.
 You laugh but I know for a fact that Volkswagen and Volvo both sold there cars and Ford sold their trucks with the tires and wheels as an option (at least previous to now*). I have owned more than one of each and in each case the tires & wheels were added as an option. These were not any kind of fancy upgrade, they simply were not included in the sales price. I remember asking with my convertible Rabbit if I could take delivery without VW tires/wheels and the answer was...
It may seem so but I am not in a pissing war with you. True a password like you present is much more secure than 4321. So, that being said it is more difficult but your statement that "If you use something other that a 4 digit password, it can not be broken." is pure unadulterated horse sh!t. It takes a bit longer but to use the absolute "it can not be broken" is just not true. 
 Thanks for pointing out my error. WhatI meant was that if you leave an intentional backdoor in place you have made your device vulnerable at a level that it was not before. You now have a group of people (some within the govt) that are willing to share, for a price, another way in that may not leave any footprints.
 Where did you study your cryptography? I cannot believe that you could make such a blatant mistake. 5 or even 6 digits is nothing to get past compared to 4.
 The thing YOU don't get is that once a backdoor is in place (no matter its intention) it will take those with other than so-called legal access via court order etc… a very short time to uncover this backdoor and make the encryption all but useless. Look back at Jailbraking and unlocking of iPhones -- people like you cried that it was your right to have it open. Well Android is living proof that simply does not work. Same with the copy protection put in place for Bluray...
