It's sad that they need to include the iPhone in any advertisements on the other hand, it is cool that Apple never even acknowledges 'competitors' in their iPhone ad. I know people like to think these are the same as the Mac-vc-PC ads, but they are not. PC is not a company or a 'brand' in the way that Apple is. Phones are now very over-featured, like cars are. Too many bells and whistles that users never take advantage of, and are often harder to use than they appear....
As a black man, I'm saddened but not surprised by the posts of those who see diversity as a waste of time and effort on the part of Apple. Diversity is America's greatest strength. What appears to be the best person for the job, on paper is really a subjective matter at the least. There are times when the best person is the least likely. One of the benefits of having a diverse workforce is that everyone, because of cultural differences, isn't going to take the same...
Interesting. I don't think throttling is fair, nor do I think the problem isn't one with a technological answer. How much evidence has Verizon set forth to prove that mega-users are the problem that Verizon says they are? Who does the internet really belong to? Has it become a utility? It seems that there are more questions to be answered here. Verizon presents a perspective, but is that the best one?
While it sounds menacing, has the exploit actually been found in the wild? I'm never sure where the terror starts, there is a vast difference between 'can/might' and 'did'.
You think they would be tired of this by now. Stop trying to out do Apple, stop trying to jump in front of what you think Apple is going to do. Do what Samsung do. Oh wait, that is what Samsung do.
That is only if they have access to that from the lock screen, which you can turn off.
My son's iPhone 5 was stolen. It was passcode protected. He was on my Find Friends list, as well as his own Find my iPhone. The first thing the thief did was turn off the phone. That was months ago. There has not been so much as an alert that the phone had ever been turned on since. Had the phone not been turned off, the tracking would've led to the phone if not the thief as well. If the passcode would've been required to turn the phone off, all of the anti theft aspects...
All of the anti-theft capabilities are inoperable if someone can turn the damned phone off without entering a password.
Content is really king. Even though there are over a thousand channels on Roku, most people use it for Netflix, Hulu Plus, and music (which that interface sucks). Even if Apple can't get live broadcast, it would be a giant step forward for them to get internet rebroadcast on Apple TV, and without having to pay cable for it. If/when that happens, the cable station will have to come along. Why pay $100 a month for cable when I can purchase subscriptions to the TV shows I...
I think it will be fine. I know that NPR has some of the most downloaded podcasts that there are. I know I have about 8 or 9 of them. If you are a news junkie, NPR is the the least cut fix you can get. It wouldn't be a big deal to add a donate now button somewhere on the screen and then have the dough come out of your iTunes account.
