  If they deactivate my iPhone, I'll personally bug report on them.
        People before: you can also choose to not read. That's what I was told when i complained about the cheap-ass articles about "special prices on Apple gear".     NormM: adjusted for inflation, the most profitable company ever is still the VOC, otherwise known as "the dutch east india company". I'll admit it is an edge case.
Companies operate under different rules than individuals, and they're more likely to be targeted by evildoers to steal business information or plain money(not that botnets or other types of wrongdoing would pass on non-business, not my point ;) )
You're talking of HD Moore here. He doesn't need attention, he's already a security rock star. It's like saying Apple needs to ask Samsung for design cues. If the guys from Metasploit, who are quite obviously WAY better than anyone on these forums, think there is an issue, I believe them. How critical it actually is, is for Apple to decide. Instead of personal attacks on the probity of the hackers, it could have been said that the security mindset may make people put more...
I see your point indeed! Thanks for the clear explanation ^^
Adobe's Flash player also has a "stats for nerds" menu item. Humor's not incompatible with software. What's annoying is humor replacing features, but in Adobe's case... well whatever.
I find Apple's solution actually better on that. In many languages, the end of the sentence can massively modify the meaning. "What ruler was exiled in Saint-helena and died there?" is Napoleon. "What ruler was exiled in Saint-Helena and returned after seven years?" is the king of Zulu...
French accent in that video, for sure ^^'
Seems an interesting experiment. I am wondering if it could be a UX issue (like, no integration with Pandora since Pandora is US-only, it would be very bad UX to fire up a tool that refuses to launch, obviously). Maybe Wolfram integration from French/whatever is too hard for Siri's server for now, since it means correctly getting the phonems, which Siri does fine, then getting the meaning, which Siri mostly does fine, then switching it to US english to query Wolfram, then...
Yes, both on iPad and iPhone (but iPhone is 4, which means no Siri). I'm going to test switching Siri to "American English" and see if it changes anything...   Well,the test is pretty conclusive. Siri's abilities depend on the language you're using. US English gives me Wolfram Alpha answers, French gives me Wikipedia instead. Frustrating...
