They could print an EULA on their panties. "By photographing these panties you agree..."
Unfortunately learning skills in your spare time won't get you far. Companies are not interested in self taught skills. The reason it takes a few years of full time education to get a CS degree is because it isn't something you can pick up yourself from a few online tutorials and "learn C++ in 24 hours" books.
Technical writing might be possible if you can get a good grasp of the concepts, but you are going to need examples of work so I'd start by understanding and documenting some open source projects. There are plenty that badly need it. Maybe you could write something for the LibUSB project, for example.
You can have regular interaction via the phone, video link, email etc. You can also visit clients or the office any time. You need to be in the same time-zone though.
Has anyone actually tried their code to see how effective it is? I don't have a system to compile it on at the moment.
I think what they mean is that they are admitting they didn't create a watertight taxation system and there is currently no rule blocking this kind of abuse. It's hard to see why Australia wouldn't fix this because it's not like Apple is going to exit the country if they do. Or maybe they will, but there are plenty of other people making computers and phones and tablets, maybe even Australian companies.
Tim Cook recently told a shareholder that Apple would put environmental concerns before profit. Are you saying that Apple should be questioned or the shareholders should revolt over that?
Being hipsters is part of the Apple image so addressing environmental concerns could come under their PR budget. We just need to convince hipsters that paying tax is cool.
He means developers. He doesn't contribute to development of code in any way any more. Implementation flaws in the cryptography are someone else's problem.
It's worse because they claim to be a moral organization. Investors were told that environmental considerations come before profit, for example. Just not social considerations, apparently.
If the license says "non transferable" then that's the end of the discussion.
Not in the UK or EU. Digital sales are treated as sales, not licenses. Doesn't matter what the EULA says, if the said "buy this song" or "purchase app" then you have full consumer protection rights and full legal ownership of the copy. You can sell your legally purchased MP3s.
So Apple were able to tell you the plaintext password? That implies they don't even hash it properly. They should have been able to reset it, but not tell you what it was. Rather alarming if true.

We should start building our own database. Cameras pointed at public roads, with say a Raspberry Pi or similar low cost low power computer to do number plate recognition. Upload data to a central database. Obviously it would only be used to track public vehicles, such as local government utility vans, police cars, ambulances etc. Tracking private vehicles would be a gross violation of privacy.
On the BT system in the UK they get the same external IP address as people using the subscriber's wifi. There is only one ADSL modem and it only gets one IP address that is shared between both (isolated) wifi networks.
The worst part is the Android app. It used to be pretty much perfect. Now it is badly broken.
I used it a lot in the car. There used to be zoom icons but now you can only pinch to zoom. Worse still when you pinch the map stops following your location and sticks to the centre of the pinch, meaning it is impossible to zoom while following yourself.
They got rid of navigation without setting a destination too. Most apps let you just drive around and use the map for speed camera warnings or seeing traffic conditions, but that is gone in Google Maps now. Following your location doesn't work because of the zoom problem mentioned above, and because your position is in the centre of the map with it rotated in a random direction. It is supposed to use the phone's compass but doesn't seem to be very stable.
I use Waze instead now, at least until Google kills it off.
My brother had this BT wifi service and showed me the app for this phone. It connected to BT wifi hotspots with his username/password automatically. I downloaded it and tried it out with a cloned MAC address and SSID of a nearby BT access point and it tried repeatedly to connect to my honeypot. I was able to capture the credentials I put in and use them to log in to the real access point.
