Re: Apple has already patched iCloud

They are working with the FBI to track down the hackers.

Are you making that up, or can you cite a source?

The closest I could find was this article (link below) quoting vague statements from Apple and the FBI. Neither has [more]

Re: Why Microsoft locastes stores next to Apple'

They're not selling any tablets. They're not selling any phones.

Actually, they sell both. They also sell a variety of 3rd-party PCs that are all free of crapware.

Re: Potential Security Breach - Celebrity Photos

So far as I can tell, virtually every "iCloud breach" was really a breach of some individual Windows user who had malware (like a key logger, for example) that [more]

Re: I need a camera!

I use my iPhone's camera. Every photo automatically shows up on my computer, so it's very easy to add them to eBay listings.

There's also an eBay app for the iPhone that (if I recall correctly) let's you snap a photo and create a listing at [more]

Re: Why don't Israelis know about Aaron Sofer?

The whole country of Israel was in an uproar over their deaths…

The whole country was in an uproar over their disappearance, long before it was known that they were dead.

Flash mob as a good deed

I never heard of Good Deeds Day until today, when I came across this video (linked below).

Why don't Israelis know about Aaron Sofer?

An American Yeshiva student disappeared last Friday in Jerusalem. Given the recent kidnapping/murder of three Israelis by Hamas, and the revenge kidnapping/murder an of Arab by Israelis, this should be a major news story.

Re: Will iPhone 6 models come with Beats earbuds

Much like cheap Android smartphones and tablets.

No, I mean that if Apple ships something that's "good enough," it will also be profitable.

Unlike cheap Android smartphones that are killing the bottom line of those [more]

Re: Will iPhone 6 models come with Beats earbuds

Question is, are they any good? Do they fit?

Beats is a fashion brand. Nobody cares if they are good.

Re: Solar Water Heating

My water heater has been turned off for oh, ten years or more. During the winter I usually heat water on my wood stove, and other times in a pan on my gas range …

So, no hot showers then? No hot water for laundry, or dishwashing?

Re: Snow Leopard Installed!

It certainly should work. The adapter does support FW800.

In fact, I know from personal experience that it even supports TDM over a FW adapter!

Re: Will iPhone 6 models come with Beats earbuds

Giving them away cheap devalues them.

I agree that they might just re-brand their existing EarPods as Beats EarPods

Re: Snow Leopard Installed!

FireWire is a technology that competes (somewhat) with USB. It was invented by Apple, and Firewire ports were standard on most Macs shipped from roughly 2001 to 2012 or so.

Apple licensed it to other PC makers, and was once also common on [more]

Re: Snow Leopard Installed!

I gather that now I can connect the two computers with an ethernet cable and move my data over to the new(er) one??
