Submission + - Apple ordered to re-write 'inaccurate' Samsung statement (

rainmouse writes: Apple has 48 hours to re-write a statement on its website relating to its design rights dispute with Samsung, UK judges have ruled.
Apple have asked that they be given 14 days to post the replacement — but the request was firmly denied. Lord Justice Longmore told Mr Beloff: "We are just amazed that you cannot put the right notice up at the same time as you take the other one down." One of the other judges, Sir Robin Jacob, added: "I would like to see the head of Apple [Tim Cook] make an affidavit about why that is such a technical difficulty for the Apple company."


Submission + - iPhones and iPads track users without permission (

rainmouse writes: It has been alleged at a technology conference in San Francisco that iPhones and iPads secretly track the movements of their users without notification or permission.
This information is then also copied to your computer every time you synch one of the devices and users with specific software can then apparently see your all past movements while carrying the device.
So far Apple has refused to comment.

Numeric stability is probably not all that important when you're guessing.
