  • Zoom iOS update removes 'feature' that sent user data to Facebook

    Too late. Minute I read AppleInsider's reporting on this, I deleted Zoom. Fixing it just because you've been caught only communicates to me that you will do it again if you think you can get away with it.
    First thing I did when I heard.
  • Here's why Apple didn't win with a $500 million offer to J.J. Abrams for Apple TV+

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but, doesn't Apple have over 1 Billion active devices? If so, Abrams does not believe that's enough? I'm sure someone else will comment with deeper analytical insight. I'm willing to listen.
  • iPhone exploits in hacked websites went unnoticed for years

    If iPhones are vulnerable imagine Android phones which in this extract are not mentioned at all ... it sounds like an excellent marketing strategy for Google to me.  Oh wait ... of course this is the very information all Android users hand over to Google to use already, what am I thinking?
    • You don't know what Project Zero is.  You don't know what they do
    • You skimmed the article looking for excuses why these exploits existed and lasted so long.
    • Finding none, you decided it would be perfectly fine to inject baseless speculation and disparage the research team
    I've always been curious why people do what you did?  I think either you completely misunderstood what you read or you intentionally made up some stuff.  If it's the former, I'd suggest rereading and clicking on the links to gain understanding.  If it's the latter, might I suggest a look in a mirror and ask yourself: what am I thinking?

    Project Zero has been criticized in the past before for not disclosing Googles security failures. The comment is valid.
  • How to stop iCloud calendar spam and junk mail

    Seems like a lot of work: create spam calendar, add spam event, delete spam calendar.
  • Samsung trying to fight iMessage chat elitists with response graphic gallery

    The Saturn V navigational computers was a 14KB computer. I'm pretty sure these developers will find a way to do it without infringing on users privacy. There are a lot of smart people out there. It's just a matter of time. Caveat: I'm not a developer. But, some of the apps out there are just awesome given the constraints of the medium.
    Yeesh. If I didn't already have an iPhone, these sad illustrations would make me want to do whatever it took to get one. They also make me appreciate how difficult it must be for Samsung to compete with Apple in the U.S. culture-wise.


    So petty. They're always envious of Apples products and services.

    If they make such a deal about them maybe Sammy should have invented the iPhone.
    Be careful of what you ask for...Sammy may just make that claim a la Al Gore.
