Apple is not responsible for data you own. They have zero obligation to keep your version in the App Store after you purchased it. You have to keep backup of your own data. The version you bought will keep working on contemporary hardware and operating system indefinitely and Apple can't and won't change that. That's in stark contrast to the subscription models that Adobe and Microsoft are pushing at the moment. When you stop paying, the software will stop to work.

The fact that the military didn't even know about this snap-decision

The decision might seem sudden but Brasil have already chose Gripen in several occasions during the last 10 years. Those decisions have been interrupted by sudden economic downturn, and corruption, political instability and other stuff. Gripen seems to have been favored by the Brasilian military and Industry all these years though, and since all competitors are eliminated du to various reasons (technical, political, corruption, cost), there was no reason not to take the decision now.

Embraer and SAAB has a history of collaboration and this is one of the key points of the deal. Embraer will be assembling these aircraft and they will be involved in future evolution of the aircraft. This spirit of collaboration between Sweden and Brasil is something that the US couldn't offer.

In Sweden there's sections in the laws about freedom of speech that makes investigation of the sources of journalists illegal, even if the source might have committed a crime. The police or other law enforcer can't ask a journalist about their sources. That'd be illegal. A journalist doesn't have to keep silent though, so he might tell anyway but the police can't even ask for it. That's what's in the law. But there's probably secret provisions around it if it's a matter of national security, or just using some other agent to do so.

I was having pretty much the same thought myself.

Why would you want a 64-bit processor on a phone?

The answer right now is: A processor with the ARMv8 ISA will be more powerful per clock and draw less power per clock and use less transistors per area than the previous ARMv7 would allow. It'll be a cheaper, faster and less power consuming than its predecessors. THAT'S the reason. Let's do it. Oh, it'll be 64-bit with no drawbacks too since we already have all the software tools and knowhow to make the leap, so let's do that too.

I admit that I didn't read the article but I must point out that there is just seven days and one day must be the worst and one day must be the best. I happens to be the friday in the UK, it might be some other day in another country but there must always be one certain day that is the worst. Since there's only seven possible outcomes but an uncountable ammount of factors going in, good luck to figuring out what exacly is goong on.

Install Linux. Cost $0 + admins' time -- almost certainly less than trying to remove and clean infected systems.

+ cost of education of the IT staff
+ cost of education of the users
+ cost of reduced productivity for the users and the IT staff until their competence rises to the before level.

Since they already had licenses for Windows, it'll cost nothing but time to re-install Windows. In that scenario, education of the users is zero, and there will be hardly no production loss for the users. There should be some money left to educate the IT staff to handle mitigate the virus threat on their chosen platform.

Isn't this something that would be easily confirmed by the nations watching Iran's rising power? Or is it confirmed already? Iran is famous for its photoshopping skills and their knack for skewing propaganda in their favor. On the other hand, they do have the technology to do this. At least in theory.

Would you people stop playing these stupid games?!?!?!!!!
