I mainly use it for reminders...

"Remind me to clean my AC filter in 2 weeks"
"Remind me to pay my car taxes on October 25th"
"Remind me to do the laundry when I get home"

Stuff like that and it works great. I don't really use it for texting or notes since it makes too many mistakes but I think that's more of my problem. I feel weird talking to a computer so I talk weird and not loud enough.

As others said you can set it up to wipe after 10 failed attempts.. It also slows down when you do that (it'll start saying please wait 1 minute before trying again, 5, 15, an hour etc).

In addition you can also enable a password lock instead of passcode where you can type whatever long and complex password you want, assuming you don't mind having to type that every time you want to unlock your phone.

Crytek USA Collapses, Sells Game IP To Other Developers 121

Posted by timothy

MojoKid (1002251) writes Game developer Crytek's problems have been detailed recently from various sources, and it's now clear that it wasn't just the company's UK studios that were affected. Crytek announced today that it has officially moved development of its F2P shooter Hunt: Horrors of the Guilded Age to a German developer, ignoring the fact that the majority of the US team had apparently already quit the company. The problem? Just as in the UK, the US employees weren't getting paid. In a separate announcement, Crytek also declared that development of the Homefront series had passed entirely to developer Deep Silver. The company has stated, "On completion of the proposed acquisition, the Homefront team from Crytek's Nottingham studio would transfer their talents to Koch Media in compliance with English law and continue their hard work on upcoming shooter, Homefront: The Revolution. Both parties hope to finalize and implement a deal soon." It's hard to see this as good news for Crytek. The company can make all the noise it wants about moving from a development studio to a publisher model, but Crytek as a company was always known for two things — the CryEngine itself, adapted for a handful of titles and the Crysis series. Without those factors, what's left?

Hmm that doesn't make sense. iOS updates are delta updates and have been since they first introduced the feature where you can update on the device itself.

Only when doing complete version upgrades (e.g. iOS 6 to iOS 7) does it download the entire OS. Or if you download updates via iTunes instead of on the device.

I just updated my iPhone 5S yesterday from 7.1.1 to 7.1.2 and it was just a 32mb download.

Swap read error. You lose your mind.
