New York state considers bill mandating backdoors in smartphone encryptionWow, any legislator who voted for this could say goodbye to reelection. Not only would it be extremely unpopular with many voters knowing government can pry into their privacy but it would also be damaging to NYC economy. If you ban stores in NYC from selling devices that don't provide a backdoor guess what, PEOPLE WILL BUY IT ELSEWHERE! Sorry all you local tech companies, your state government just banned the sale of technology that doesn't give law enforcement a backdoor, looks like you'll be loosing all your sales to businesses online or across state lines.
First look: Apple's lightweight 3.6oz Smart Battery Case for iPhone 6s and iPhone 6melgross said:rogifan_old said:charlituna said:berenz said:I think I was just a little bit sick in my mouth. Apart from adding bulk and looking far from Apple's usual high-standards, it's surely an admission that the battery on the 6 and 6S are still woefully inadequate. I'd sacrifice having a thinner iPhone for 50% increase in battery - and even that wouldn't last me a full day at least a couple of times per week
Nope its not. The battery lasts all day if you aren't some wanker who has to be on it all the damn time. Apple didn't design the iPhone to be practically attached to your face and most folks don't treat it like that.
If anything this is designed for those folks that can't put their phone away and want to cry and whine about how their phone only lasts 8 hours. Why shouldn't Apple make a bit more money off them.
No matter what the battery life is, some people are always going to complain that they want more. There are two things that those peop,e can try.
One is to contact the manufacturer and tell them that. If enough people do, maybe they'll listen.
Two is to stop buying that manufacturers product. That will tell them something as well.Best example I can think of is how many Apple fanatics on these forums blasted people for wanting a phone with a bigger screen & accused them of being in the minority. Well, polling data is out & actually those of us (that's right, I'm not a fan of the bigger screen) who like the smaller form factor of the iPhone 5, 5c, & 5s are in the minority. At the end of the day Apple is going to do what makes them money, they are a business after all. People need to get their head out of the tech critic cloud & see the world for how it really is & not for how a bunch of narcissistic geek bloggers think it should be.On that note, Kuddos to AI, I often return to this site because in my opinion you are one of the more balanced & fair tech blogging sites out there. Even being so obviously & unapologetically pro Apple I rarely feel I'm getting the rose colored review of Apple News.
