Quotes

"I'm not yet completely sold on 4.7 inches as a replacement for 4.0 as the standard iPhone size, but give me a few more weeks and I suspect I will be. I love the old iPhone size so much, and I've spent so much time with it, that it's going to take longer than a week to adjust to a new size -- especially so when I spent half the week using the ginormous iPhone 6 Plus."
"An attacker could have impersonated a WiFi access point, offered to authenticate with LEAP, broken the MS-CHAPv1 hash, and used the derived credentials to authenticate to the intended access point even if that access point supported stronger authentication methods" Apple said in its security advisory for iOS 8
"ASIC supports the openopen government initiative to provide an easy way to find, access and reuse public datasets from ASIC" commissioner Greg Tanzer said
"Any government agency demanding customer content from Apple must get a search warrant," the report states. "When we receive such a demand, our legal team carefully reviews it. If there’s a question about the legitimacy or scope of the request we challenge it, as we have done as recently as this year. We only comply with information requests once we are satisfied that the request is valid and appropriate, and then we deliver the narrowest possible set of information."
