why? Because of Tim Cook's dumb ass privacy crusade she has one hand tied behind her back.
How the hell can she do here job if Cook refuses to use the data from hundreds of millions of Apple users?
Tim Cook needs to resign. His dumb ass social, policital, and privacy crusades are hurting the company.
Apple has 500 million of the most valuable customers on the planet. Yet Cook refuses to use the data from these customers to open more revenue streams.
Cook preaches privacy, yet Google is still the default search on iOS.
Cook preaches privacy, yet 80-90% of iOS users use Facebook or Google or both.
Its beyond pathetic that Apple's competitors attack Apple's main revenue streams by bringing out hardware products.
Yet Apple refuses to fight back with their own search, social, and AI platforms.
If Cook had half a brain Apple would have developed and released a Google search competitor by now. Or a Facebook competitor. But because of Cooks dumb ass privacy crusade we see neither. And Amazon, Samsung, Microsoft, ect continue to make inroads into Apple's hardware business.
Close to 99% use Facebook or Google or Amazon or Netflix. All of these companies use your data.
No one cares. Especially not the majority of Apple customers.
The only one who cares is Tim Cook.
Your rants and drivel continue to get more and more outlandish. This really shouldn't need to be said but you are either to daft to understand or choose to look like a moron. The issue of privacy does not change for Apple at the end of the day if a user uses Facebook or Gooole that is ultimately the end users choice but should not be used as a product direction for the product as a whole. Just because a group of people don't value something as much as they should does not mean that it should be thrown out completely.

It’s common knowledge that Apple (with help from Ireland) took advantage of loopholes in international tax laws to reduce their tax burden. Of course, Apple has done nothing illegal, but it’s completely within each country’s rights to change tax laws to close those loopholes.

repressthis said:Security Concern
Siri can be provoked from lock screen. So will the third party Siri API allow verbal commands to be executed without first unlocking the device?
Criminal picks up an unattended iPhone and prompts Siri to send X amount of money from Square Cash to X account.
I imagine authentication is required but, as of now, I have no confirmation of the matter.
Siri also has a switch in your passcode settings to set if it can be accessed while the device is locked.
Would make more sense for Apple to use one of its legal entities to contract Cellebrite to unlock an iPhone 5c then have to go through what would probably be a long court battle that would open up the security flaw to the public record.
That at is assuming that they actually did unlock the phone of course.

I am not crazy about the camera either but if this is that important to your daily life I would think you would use a USB version anyway. There is not a laptop on the market that is as nice as this when you look at every aspect.
Just because someone creates heavily constructed scenarios for the sole purpose of to prove their very short sighted and narrow version of how a product (which they probably don't & more importantly won't own) should operate does not mean it is going to have any effect on the mass majority of people that the product is right for. I have never once needed to worry about more then a single USB plug when I am traveling nor have I heard of anyone that has one complain about it. When I am at home I have a dock which has connectivity for my external hard drives, monitor, iPhone/iPad/mouse/keyboard chargers and anything else I could realistically ever need to plug into the computer. When I am at work I have the same thing. When I am using my aptop out in the world I usually don't even need to bring the charging cable with me but I absolutely don't need to bring dongles or hubs in my very small laptop case.

What makes you say Siri appears to be a sock puppet? This is a genuine question because my experience is largely different from that.
Don't get me wrong I will be first inline for whatever the next release is but until then I will happily use Siri without problems other then the group chat issues until the next iPhone is released.
