Avoiding "absolutist" positions is even possible in this debate?
It's a binary option. Either there is a backdoor/weakness or there isn't. There is no middle ground.
So much for Obama having "a good grasp of the issue's technical details." He's not doing any better than any other politician (from both sides of the aisle) saying exactly the same thing in different words.
Apple implements a system that causes an application to stop working even when nothing has changed, requiring an update from the developer and reinstallation, and which does not take into account real-world cases such as users needing to use an older version of software or applications which are no longer being updated, and some of you have the nerve to blame the developer?!?!? Don't you think you're taking the Fan Boyz thing a bit far?

Fan Boyz? What are you, a 12 year old troll?
Thousands upon thousands of developers don't seem to have this problem. It's absolutely their fault.The "crash" turned out to be a feature of macOS in PDFPen's case. According to TidBits, the "taskgated-helper" system app examines a code signing certificate and compares it to the "entitlements" list. Should the the provisioning profile be linked to an expired certificate, macOS blocks the app with the expired certificate from launching.
These particular applications where included as examples, not the only apps having problems. In these cases, the developers were very active in creating a solution to a problem caused by Apple.However, other apps not updated as frequently, or abandoned by developers, may stop working with no recourse by users to get them to start working again.
Actually all that would be better with a Plus phone
I chose the iPad Mini for much the same reasons. It's the perfect size for reading books. I've noticed that reading web pages is good, but any smaller would be too small. Just because you apparently just want to argue does not mean that our usage has to bow to your demands.
Count me among the very disappointed that Apple hasn't actually upgraded it. I've been waiting for the next version before upgrading my Mini 2, and now I'll probably just wait longer. Apple is making "falling market share" a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Meanwhile "Apple doesn't innovate".
But most of current complaints about Apple are not about their "lack of innovation", it's about abandoning existing users or getting sloppy in areas where they used to be world beating. They can be excellent at advancing in one area, like this one, but that does not do anything to correct letting the Mac Pro rust into obsolescence, or hanging users out to dry with nothing to base their technology decisions on.
macsimcon said:If you'll pardon me for saying so, that's a false equivalency. Republican presidents started the first gulf war, and the second, which by the way is the longest war in American history. It was a Republican president who created DHS, and who greatly expanded the power of the NSA. It was a Republican president who invaded a country that had nothing to do with 9/11. It was a Republican president who caused the creation of Al Qaeda, and a different Republican president who caused the creation of ISIS/ISIL/Daesh. Democrats are not just as guilty as Republicans, they simply clean up the messes left behind by Republicans.
netrox said:RAM is not as important as you think it is. The SSD is so fast, it can do a lot of RAM-like performance when RAM is short. The Mac memory management takes everything into consideration. When Intel comes out with its 3DXPoint storage, the RAM demands will dramatically drop as well because it would be just as fast as RAM.
