Frosty piss, whatever, I have karma in abundance.
No, they really can't. Read the text of RIPA for why, and that's just for starters.
Perhaps Grandma was too busy dying to be concerned about what bullshit some company was going to pull with her possession. As was the family. Apple asked for proof of ownership. Fair enough. They provided *three* forms of it. That should be the end of it.
All that bibble about "what if" is bollocks. It was her iPad, she died, it now belongs to the family who have proven that they are the family. Unlock the fucking thing.
That means relying on the whitelist to be a) accurate and b) kept up to date. Not particularly reassuring.
Even intercepting the OP example breaches the laws I listed although most people don't give two hoots if their GMaps traffic is snooped. They do have a problem with financial sessions being intercepted however...

ARM themselves incorporated in 1990 (hence the 24 years). However, you are correct that Acorn chips predated the company.
Indeed. Moving from the membrane ZX81 to a Spectrum 48K spongy keyboard was like a breath of fresh air. Still rubbish compared to the Sharp MZ80K I had access to even though the graphics were better
Which can be disabled without having to unlock the phone...
You can buy milk thistle in various forms in health foods shops in UK and have been able to do so for *decades*. If there was a problem with this unregulated remedy (hint: there isn't) it would have been discovered by now.
Don't know why you're babbling about homeopathy. Aspirin isn't homeopathic. Never has been. Neither is milk thistle.
The only time I've been contacted about a potentially fraudulent transaction was when I was actually making the transaction in question at an electronics store. I never got contacted about the truly fraudulent ones when my chip & pin card was skimmed...
