I'm surprised this hasn't been mentioned in the news or discussion forums.   It's been reported that Steve Wozniak has plans to move to Australia soon and has even applied for Australian citizenship.  He was recently granted permanent residency for his family and got a job at the University of Technology in Sydney.   He says his ideal place to retire is Tasmania, something I can understand completely.   Steve says: "I want to be a distinguished part of this country...
How do you know they stole it?  Maybe they asked permission to use the name or offered them some money.  I don't hear them complaining.  It got them some publicity at least anyway.
No doubt Apple will take all of that 90 days of grace to patch this hole and/or figure out another backdoor to intentionally program into OS X.  Probably too cynical but maybe not.   Either way I'm interested to know how and why Apple introduced changes to OS X that can result in such a significant (by the sounds of things) vulnerability.
This led many to believe it was an underhanded way of telling developers not to replicate OS X functionality, which Apple has a history of doing for iOS and OS X... or perhaps they were just embarrassed that PCalc was better! Either way it's nothing but a complete backflip from Cupertino.  It's not like a calculator widget can be a massive resource hog.  I'm sure PCalc is very efficient and requests virtually no resources. There were many much more resource-hungry...
Did you really clean the vacuum filter? :P
South Korea can survive Samsung crashing.  They've still got Hyundai which is bigger and stronger.
That's funny, because as of 8.0.2 I can no longer sync in iTunes over Wi-Fi and now they won't let me downgrade!   WTF is going on at Apple?  Srsly get your sh*t together!
Oh please... Every year Apple trots out some "photographer" to tout the improvements in the new iPhone's camera, but the truth is even an average point and shoot for a couple of hundred bucks can cream an iPhone for picture quality...and always will! The fact that this guy already has a fully edited movie shot in Iceland using the new models proves he received pre-release iPhones directly from Apple for testing and that makes his video nothing more than a biased Apple...
So iCloud is safe and secure...unless you're targeted and don't have 2-step verification enabled?   Well I for one had no idea if I had it enabled or how to enable two-step verification until recently and I'm hardly a typical Apple user so I'd love to know what the average adoption rates of two-step verification are.  I never even noticed a prompt to enable it until signing in to Yosemite public beta.   Rather than be so pompous and arrogant all the time maybe Apple...
So what does this mean... no one else is allowed to build a glass cube anymore?   This whole patent thing just gets weirder and weirder.
