Apple are merging OS X into IOS, albeit very slowly.

Nope. I've been there, and nobody at Apple has any such intention. Features will get passed back and forth between them, but they're very aware of the reasons that Tablet PCs failed, and they're not going to copy MS's mistakes.

There is absolutely nothing stopping them from selling their hardware manufacturing arm to someone like ACER and then releasing OSX to the market.

Been there, done that, and NeXT nearly went out of business. Not to mention, how much of a pain in the ass it was to configure Dells or other generic PCs to run NeXTSTEP.

A mere six months in a prison operated by a government that wants to make an example of you? Gee, I can't imagine why he was unwilling to get raped and murdered by another inmate instead of killing himself.

Now fuck off and go polish your jackboots.

IPSec is perfectly usable.

Telebit demonstrated transparent routing (ie: total invisibility of internal networks without loss of connectivity) in 1996.

IPv6 has a vastly simpler header, which means a vastly simpler stack. This means fewer defects, greater robustness and easier testing. It also means a much smaller stack, lower latency and fewer corner cases.

IPv6 is secure by design. IPv4 isn't secure and there is nothing you can design to make it so.
