Shouldn't maintainers of compromised systems be held liable for skimping on security?
iPhone 4 and newer iPhone battery replacement is fairly trivial:
1: Buy a battery and a pentalobe driver or bit from dealextreme or ebay for about $10
2: Uscrew the two case screws
3: Slide the back cover off
4: Unscrew the battery connector screw
5: Replace the battery and reassemble the back cover
I've done it about once a year on my iPhone 4, once the average recharge interval goes from about five days to about three days.
No, you must be thinking of 1970's stuff. Integrated circuits and surface-mounted components were mainstream by late 1980's.
We've sent more spacecraft to Mars than any other planet. We've had space stations with sustained life-support environments for quite a while. The Apollo stuff on the other hand started pretty much from scratch as far as space-faring goes.
Yes, but it was all-new tech back then. It's not so much about science and research anymore, just about finance and engineering to pull this off.
Because there's already an awesome open-source Mach kernel out there: XNU, and it ships with most Apple devices.
If anything humans are polygamous. A third cheat and the reason the other two thirds don't is because of social, financial and other consequences or just aren't attractive enough to get someone to cheat with.
I wouldn't count out the possibility of Samsung's Android diverging from the other Android. That'd leave the rest with whatever Google releases and Samsung providing their own, separate stuff and exclusive third-party apps.
Probably 43.5 GWh over its lifetime. The article is badly written, and so is the summary: classic Slashdot style.
And that's a 2007 device, isn't it?
UPDATE: Vodafone has told TechWeek why it believes its users are safe: “The embedded configuration that is applied for our iOS devices ‘1WiFiVodafone1x’ and ‘Auto-BTWiFi’ are locked to ‘EAP-SIM’ authentication which is a bi-directional authentication protocol.
“Man-in-the-middle attacks rely upon a hacker setting up an access point pretending to be the configured AP [access point].
“With EAP-SIM configured, the device will send the AP a challenge to make sure that it is Vodafone that it is connecting to. This transaction is resolved with our network, which sends back the response to the challenge and its own challenge. The handset then responds to the network challenge and providing all of these challenge response pairs work then the user gets access. If the initial test for it being Vodafone fails, the device doesn’t connect.”
If you need to constantly charge it with the crank, it has no battery life at all.
I've been using an iPad (2048x1536) with AirDisplay. It works just fine for your scenario. The frame rate is dependant on the connection speed, so it's not suitable for games and video, but there are other solutions for that.
Actually you could push 4k resolutions out of really old video cards, including something like HDMI 1.0 and single-link DVI. You'd just have to scale down the refresh rate. The video card limits are mostly a function of bandwidth and they don't really care about the display geometry, all they do is send a stream of bytes from their frame buffer along with some sync bits to tell the monitor where the line or frame ends.
