I've never been a BB fan (never owned one) but I was given an iPhone and a BB10 beta to play with. The BB10 feels way better, and I mean waaaay better. With the iPhone it feels like you spend most of the time clicking on the menu button moving to another app. On the BB10 you swipe left or up and as if by magic all your other app(s) are there, still running.
To be fair, the iPad has had those same multi-finger gestures for quite some time. For some reason, though, the iPhone never got that feature.
I don't know where you live, but I spoke with a surprisingly-knowledgeable Comcast representative some time ago about the future of IPv6 on their network. They are rolling it out market by market, but unfortunately for me, the northeast and mid-Atlantic states will be one of the last regions to have it activated. Something something legacy equipment up there. She couldn't provide a time frame, though it will definitely be addresses. (Whenever that may be.)
If you do have it enabled, though, your router will get a single IPv6 address. If it's capable of DHCPv6-PD and you left that enabled, you'll wake up one morning to see that IPv6 has magically come to your house.
Pick up ANYTHING APPLE. It does not feel like a cheap piece of shit.
Well, except for the few remaining white MacBooks. But I do see your point. Apple products aren't typically just a couple plastic housings molded, glued, screwed, or snapped together. They're glass, metal, or whatever else Jony Ive's been playing with lately. When you pick one up, it feels solid, just the right weight... and hopefully, like it's worth the price tag.
And IPv6. Granted, I hate the fact of registering hardware before it will accomplish its intended goals, but if Hardware Manufacturer A fires out 50 million mice without an IPv6 stack, they're just asking for trouble.
Although, if this mouse does support IPv6, I still won't buy one. I'll just laud it for its one non-saving grace.
If you're talking about unlocking the phone via the lock screen like people do, that's a no-go. There is an option to erase the device after ten failed unlock attempts, and (correct me if I'm wrong) it's turned on by default. Even though there are only 10,000 possible combinations, you'll only have the chance to try 0.1% of them before the phone self-destructs, no matter how long you wait between attempts.
If you're talking about bypassing iOS and attacking the flash chips directly, then post a link. I'm curious.
The only problem with that is the fact that the space bar makes a unique noise when pressed. It's a good clue to a shoulder surfer.
Of course, following xkcd's advice while removing spaces is quite acceptable.
