  • Cellebrite again rumored to have accessed San Bernardino iPhone 5c for FBI

    This is all bs. They may have paid celebrite but the entire thrust of the fbis plan was to obtain a lawful too to combat or lessen the ease in which a criminal entity might go dark and they simply lost control of the narrative and were caught off guard by the ferocity in which Apple stood its ground.

    it was a wildly misconceived under planned and poorly executed effort that among its high points included Director Comey perjuring himself before Congress twice without penalty and the Attorney General getting a snack down by of all people - Lindsey Graham who apparently does attempt to educate himself on the matters his votes will be counted. His about face made it clear this wasn't happening and the story simply needed to die.

    Apple is aware of Celebryte, NAND mirroring and every single possible other method one currently has or might have to subvert their encryption.

    it started with a lie and do it ends the same way.

    dont care how many people die, how many children are molested or if their diddlers get caught and terroism will never be some kind of super threat afforded expediency and constitutional compromise to get a bad guy if it means somehow they can look in more than just that one phone. 

    Its the the future folks but you can't look in my phone

    Once the FCC begins regulating prices you can kiss infrastructure buildout goodbye. Kiss fiber to the premises goodbye. Such buildout will no longer be financially viable if the rate of return is arbitrarily limited. Oh, then just let the government nationalize the broadband industry and we can all have unlimited speed and data for free! Good luck with that dream.

    It's also been rock bottom feature set in favor of reliability but it needs some love. Video VoiceMail for instance. 
  • Video: John Oliver's 'Last Week Tonight' sides with Apple in encryption debate

    Director Comey wants to be a big deal and the FBI since 9/11 is not as sharp or honest and far more scrappy as a result of that root event. Hes a hack. Since the Patriot act- also passed in a climate of fear and all the drip drip drip since i think its important to remember the quote: The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.- Jefferson I don't care how people get blown up, how many children get molested or sold into slavery or if ISIS starts picking our Avocados since Trump will fire all of the Mexicans. I just dont care. The plight of the innocent and patriot and citizen alike are lesser than the whole and Justice reflects this when administered wisely. Our individual rights are more important than our individual lives.... Which is my point.That doesn't mean justice or prosecution should be lessened it means America needs protection from our government. Because its broken. Criminals always should be sought to bring to justice. Limited. Some people will always get away and accepting that rarirty is a check and balance. Not a call to Orweillian police states. We can look at a coke can from outer space with a smudged telescope and NO ONE but Apple can make this happen? Thats Tim Cooks lie. What theyre not revealing is that iOS 9 was an improvement in encryption but iOS 10 will truly redine the entire discussion but im sure theres a way to lock it up so that it simply cant be locked and so you will they will annualy out run the government simply beacuse anyone can... I mean Dianne Fienstien is a major player in Intelligence ? Reealllllly ? This is garbage government. Just because the framers didnt have iPhones didnt mean they didnt understand the idea and value of keeping a secret (Ethan Allan hung from a tree for keeping his) and how wildly different a secret could be... from dick pics to iphone 5c with nothing on them but the Quaran in iBooks to the British are coming with lamps to imessage. The more the stupid are allowed to allow the government to direct thier lives thru "comfort" "welfare" and and our nationalize malaise /unmotivated anti curiousty to learn grows the syupid will multply and they will multiply and someday no one will be educated or the ones that are arent American and then I hope we are destroyed because these rights are the only reason we exist. End of story. Im Done with amplified platitudes used and only deemed worthy if the correct ampount of fear can be a wedge or used as leverage to "inform" the dumb when the FBI cant just do it in the dark. We are nothing with out our abiity to enjoy celebrate and save these rights for ourselves. Will that be bastardized ? Of course. Does that matter ? Nope. So long as people remember why it is why we have these rights and the many that died to birth them Sure airplanes falling out of skies, raped 7 year olds, Muslims wear bombs filled with Nails.... If you dont know already - its all coming. And much much worse than any time before. The oceans no longer protect us and soon will open a new front of Danger... Erosion on continental scale? Sounds scarier than child porn frankly or muslims... Amd America - Jesus isnt coming. Whatever you believe about this issue the real issure belying all our conversatoins now boil down to muscular christianity and when not directly the issue it doesnt take long to see how the Jesus freaks will side and is it a coincidence that those that believe in a poorly translated collection of fables (probably about Aliens) and a Jewish Zombie / Deadbeat dad "oh im back again." No becasuse hhere isi no such thing. Simple can only understand simple things. Whatever salvation is I promise its not Jesus 2.0 and World Peace. Averting this inevitabilty in every sphere (this debate amoung them) should be exercised, Our government cant even talk to itself so it just turns off the lights when Ted Cruz makes it and so then your choices are to be afraid and if your an idiot enjoy that; if you choose to not be afraid and defend with every possible way your capable of and maintain direct access to the Bill of Rights.... and the promises we were made. You have nothing to fear. If you break a law you should expect on consequence. Because thats all thier is. No Bad. No Evil. No Righteous. Just Action and Consequence. Consequence isnt good or bad its a promise. Its not about this phone. The FBI knows the "All Writs" is garbage in courts and needs a offensive weapon as parts of plan to outwit criminal activinty as the web gets darker.... and there have always been dark places and the FBI is running out of ideas. And the man just lied before Congress under oath. Nothing about this is equitabe or debateable. Hes a criminal. We will lose cities, and everyone dies - letting all of that go and focusing instead on how we treat one another. how much love we freely express. how much Beauty and Arrt we see beyond ourselves and obeserve in others and all the while doing so with grace and humilty that is what Humanity could become - the American government and Christianity stand in the way. The government is not on our side. But can we still be on each others.

  • Apple exploring the possibility of moving iPhone manufacturing to United States

    the more excuses we hear about how hard/expensive it is the more reason we should be working hard to make it happen. not having self sufficiency in critical high tech devices in our own country is a HUGE risk if god forbid we ever have a world war again.  people need to understand assembly cost is a very small portion of the cost of our devices.  the majority of the cost is component cost, R&D, and marketing costs.

    we always have the options of bringing in large numbers of immigrants that are dieing to come to the US and have special development zones that have lower minimum wages for a transition time. it's a win win for everyone.   along with special economic zones where have massively reduced tax rates for factories brought back home.

    we also can consider imposing taxes on goods from other countries that have ridiculously low minimum wages. that will force other countries to stop exploiting their people for politician and elite profits at the same time helping to make our country more competitive. 
    Immigrants? Do you live under a rock the Christian's have come to town and Donald is kicking out the Mexicans - your fat obese 10 year old can't read but he can work that iphone u bought him for taking out the trash - maybe he'll use his fat hands assembling more iPhones. For 10 bux an hour.

    get over it blue collar America. You should have aimed higher and moved as far away from the problem before you were trapped in a errible job making someone else's fun stuff but then on food stamps because... globalization.

  • Review: Apple Watch Series 2 is a great improvement, but watchOS 3 steals the show

    Ejecting water out of the speaker cavity post swimming exercise — neat!

    but what about after taking a shower? Would seem like a good idea to remove corrosive water in any situation where water may intrude.

    Is there a software mechanism to eject water other than ending a swimming exercise? 
    I don't think it's necessary unless you submerge the device and cause water to replace the air pockets. This isn't likely to happen with a shower unless you really soak the device or get a water jet right in the speaker holes. Now that they have two mic and two speaker holes, the air flow will allow water to be removed more naturally over Series 1, and I can't say it was a problem then, even while I used it when swimming.

    But it's a moot point since I think there's an always-available option to remove water.

    The most important new feature beyond speed or GPS is its water resistance and inside a comprehensive review of the device the most Apple friendly website gives and it eschews away its lack of an opinion on said water resistance by excusing itself because theyre gym doesn't have a fucking pool?
    Ridiculously insufficient. Corrupts the entire piece. Garbage.

    With all the attention Apple received over the past year on the issue of security and the iPhone platform, how in the heck could this get out of Apple?  One would think the first thing QA would look at is the security system of the iOS and companion software like iTunes.  I mean, really?  (Time for a seance to raise Steve.)
    Jesus Christ. Steve couldn't button his own shirt - these hackers will always be ahead of everyone in Silicon Valley because that's thier job. Apple, MS would and are wise to heed thier findings. They're closer to Moscow than Washington
