Not for most iOS devices that people are using today. It used to be you could back up the unique signature (SHSH) blobs from your device while your iOS version was still being signed, and that would let you downgrade later whenever you wanted - but I'm pretty sure the last device for which that was possible was the iPhone 4S with its A4 chip.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
You're also seeing people get annoyed with the latest iOS release and hold off on upgrading or revert back.
You can't revert back on iOS unless the old version is still being signed, which is generally a very short window. If people are getting annoyed that fast, they're not bothering to actually giving the new version much of a chance.
He IS a defender robot. He is here to protect you. Grandma is protected at the bottom of the stairs.
I know how hard it was to lose my father when I was a fairly young adult - so I can only imagine how you and your family are feeling right now. You are in my prayers.
If I think about things I'd want to say to my (now young adult) daughter, if I had been in your shoes at the point in time you're currently at...
I have no geek advice, but - tell her you love her. Tell her you're proud of her, no matter what she chooses to do with her life. Tell her to take her time with boys - they'll still be there when she's ready. And tell her to tell her mother she loves her and that you love her.
Tell her about funny stories, and the interesting things you've seen. Tell her about your friends growing up, and the mischief you got into. Tell her about your favorite music, so she has something to roll her eyes at.
And take care.
I can be distracted while reading a paper book just as easily as I can be distracted while reading on my Kindle.
Something smells funny here... you might almost think they didn't look at dedicated e-readers at all, but only at multifunction devices such as phones or tablets. Nah, no researcher would be that sloppy, right?
Who exactly funded this research again?
Just incorporate an actual python into your python coding video - problem solved!
Their product is designed to replace ads... with OTHER ads, provided by themselves. And it's not hard to imagine that cash considerations are involved with making those choices.
Even if you set aside the security implications - that is pretty much exactly the sort of sleazy behavior that has gotten quite a few companies into trouble in the past.
I hope the poor monk doesn't get hit with some drug-resistant bacterial infection...
It's funny that so many people are writing about the Sega CD, the Saturn, the 32X
I generally take the train to work - so I get multiple reminders of this principle every day!
They actually cover that stuff in American junior high schools as well - but I do think people who aren't interested in science tend to forget it again, once they don't need to remember it for a test anymore.
I have always wanted an unpaid job, doing drudgery.
Google was counting on you to carry Helpouts - but you let them down, man.
Meh. I'd read this as: "Researchers and writers jealous of massive demand and high wages of programmers, predict doom and gloom for those that picked a reasonably lucrative career path".
You might want to look at the salaries tenured CS and EE professors make before taking bets on that.
And I can remember putting together ASP pages using JScript to run on IIS 4, more than a decade ago. Everything old is new again, I guess.
The masses will switch as soon as they see "Did you know Facebook could be faster --> Click Here ---"
Somehow I doubt that'll be any more effective than those old website buttons that said "This site is optimized for Netscape Navigator - click here to download".
