Yes it was a bug, but as I read it was only one duplicated line of code.Yes it was a serious bug, but to take advantage of it, required someone very knowledgeable  setup in a public WiFi area trying to intercept others data. Apple fixed the problem within a few days of the problem going public, amazing response by Apple.Not waiting for patch Tuesday on patch month and not ignoring the problem as other SW developers have done.
Three months before my Canadian  iPhone contract ended, my carrier offered me a $50 credit   it if I would switch for $0 to one of 3 old model competing phones. Two were android HTC and Samsung. One was an even older model Nokia.   I felt  it was quite dumb of them, but they probably were smart to try and dump that very old stock,  which didn't come close to my current iPhone4, which has  iOS 7 installed and working very well.   My reward to my carrier for trying to...
This is very significant news in the internet spying world. Google got beaten out on this deal by a much friendlier deal.   Both FaceBook and Google knew WhatsUP here; the access to a huge number of users spread around the world.

I hadn't  heard that; oh my Woz is loosing it (the mind) very young! 
Not surprising, the mini is particularly attractive for those who have a laptop or an iPhone. I got a BB Playbook (UGH, good hardware, but terrible software compared to iOS)  a few years ago because I wanted a smaller iPad.  Fortunately I have loaded several PB apps I need, but they are no longer being updated or available.   I've been waiting for the retina mini iPad. I'm now about to get a mini iPad cellular as a family gift. Eventually I'll trash the PB and get a...
Right on, current Bitcoins are a suck you in scam. Hopefully the follow on is a real currency backed Netcoin, which is definitely needed.Come on Gov banks, get up to date with the real need for Netcoins.
