God, you Apple fanbois are ridiculous! You need to get your news from other sources besides Apple fanboi sites.     SUNDAY, JULY 13, 2014 Amazon-Hachette: The Sounds of Silence - A Guest Post by William Ockham   Everybody's talking about Amazon's latest move in the Amazon-Hachette kerfuffle and the reactions have been pretty predictable. Lots of confirmation bias going around. While the public broadsides, grand offers, and nasty anonymous leaks are full of sound...
 And they can't afford to buy a cell phone. They have to finance it.
 Would they have done it if Steve wasn't getting treatment there? Most probably definitely not.

Both Apple and Samsung require the user to go through virtually identical steps, albeit in slightly different order, before they can enable the lock.   On iOS7 the user goes to Settings>>iCloud>>Sign In or Get Free Apple ID and then turn on Find My iPhone. It even asks the user "Allow iCloud to Use the Location of Your iPhone? This enables Find My iPhone features, including the ability to show the location of this iPhone on a map." According to Dilger’s screenshots,...
