People will flock to buy stuff and invest in this company which markets and sells goods manufactured almost exclusively in China and then have the nerve to complain about the US foreign trade deficit. We the stupid, blind and thoughtless Americans, brought it upon ourselves, and continue to do so, all the while blaming it on Obama, Congress or whatever other fool is in office. We get what we deserve I guess...
Of course the court could just order you to turn over your password.
Isn't there some self-incrimiation thingy that makes this impractical? Like, the court cannot ask you to incriminate yourself.
I'm not American, so I forgot the details.
It's pretty much the idea, which is terrible in my view. But then again, how else are you going to prevent bruteforce?
STK at the enterprise level agrees to pay the fines levied by the feds if data written to their tapes inside their silos, while under their high end service contract fail within 12 months of writing, provided they are stored by a certified off-site storage company, such as Iron Mountain. While that is not a data guarantee it comes as close as you can get. That is why critical application data gets a full backup, as well as incrementals every day come hell or high water. The cost is enormous but is part of doing business...
He makes a fair point. The data stored at Apple does not generate revenue for Apple, at the contrary of Google - where your emails are scanned for content to target ads at your eyeballs.
Now, jumping from that to "We cannot do it even if we wanted to" is quite a leap forward. I'm not sure I trust that part of the statement.
This is a no-contract phone, no strings attached. I subscribed to a contract after having bought the phone.
Actually yes I have but, perhaps I phrased it poorly, many types media are guaranteed for up to 7 years, but none that I've ever dealt with will guarantee the data stored for more than 12 months without a rewrite.
FTA you referenced...
Disks used in the test are REQUIRED to less than 12 month old and obtained directly from the manufacturer or thru known distribution channels.
The tests spanned less than 30 days, far short of the 12 months I spoke of and much less than the 7 YEARS federal requirements for bank data storage require. Not to mention the very small, relatively speaking size of the disk compared to the VAST amount of data required to be stored.
Is lethal force justified when cops start going around causing permanent blindness and life-long disability? Because my 357 thinks it probably is a reasonable level of self defense.
No backup media in use manufactured by ANY company is guaranteed for more than 12 months. While the media may have a 7 year life span the data on it NEEDS to be renewed at least once every 12 months and failure to do so abrogates nearly every warranty. I worked for a large bank and dealt extensively in federally mandated offsite Contingency Operations and Recovery and learned one thing, backups without recovery exercises are next to useless if you are actually seeking said protections rather than just meeting the bare minimum requirements set forth. If you really value the videos you've gone to such trouble to back-up then periodically you need to verify they still work and view them or you are just performing an exercise in rote time wasting.
A simple and very secure offsite storage answer is a bank safe deposit box. Put your movies on a thumb drive and stash it with your life insurance policy and other 'stuff' in a box at your bank. Relatively cheap or maybe even free depending on your bank, very likely local with standard access times to make recovery easy.
I just bought €50 phones for my kids. Android 4.4. There are plenty around where I am, so I don't really know what the fuss is all about.
Hey, since you're talking about contract, can you point us to it so we can see if:
- The users expectations is on par with what the user agreed to
- If there is a failure of the accepted usage contract.
Are you being obtuse on purpose? Probably... but I'll feed your nice troll one last time, by helping you compare a bag of crap with the latest album from U2, so that you will see that your comparison was overly excessive.
Probably more than 99% of the world population doesn't like a bag of crap. So the chance of pleasing someone by leaving one in their front porch is about less than 1%. Can you guess if the percentage of people that don't like the latest album from U2 is higher of lower than that?
You have roaming charges and let iTunes download everything automatically? And somehow it is Apple's fault?
In your view, the fact that people were given for free a piece of music is something they should rightfully complain about? Without us making fun of them?
Strange view you have there.
