No, I'm talking about this:

Google is able to update Android by updating Google Play. This is actually a good thing. I'm just pointing out it seems hypocritical to bitch at Apple saying:

If you buy a product from Apple, it's not really yours. Oh, you own the lump of hardware, but the apps, the content, the OS? No, you do not own any of that.

when Google does the same thing.

How do you show the government that they have violated the law? By letting illegally obtained evidence stand?

So, in the future, any case should be OK, and any violations of law should be OK, as long as it is for a greater good? What if it's a "greater good" that you disagree with? Who gets to draw that line?

Much as I think the guy need to go to jail, I have to go with the evidence is inadmissible.

You understand that users of older versions of iOS can download the older versions of the iOS apps, right, if the developer chooses to make it available.

How is this forcing customers to upgrade as often as possible? Also, I said 4 years, not 5 years. You might want to re-read what I wrote, instead of what you think I wrote.

According to this: http://results.rightware.com/b...

The iPhone 5S, with a dual core 1.3Ghz, is performing comparably to 2.3 Ghz quad cores, coming in at #8.

Can you imagine what the phone market would be like if Apple decided to say "eff the lot of you" and doubled their clock speed and then double the number of cores...?

All of a sudden, that 1019 will turn into 4000. Wonder how the other phones will even try to keep up...?

Seeing that the iPhone 4S runs iOS 8, and iOS 9 will be out next year, this means the iPhone 4S will have 4 years of iOS updates.

iPhone 5S is one year old, and based on track record, will be running iOS 10 fine.

How do you propose they force the 5S into obsolescence faster?

As opposed to Android phones, half of which are sold pre-obsolescenced? How many Android phones are running 4.4 again, and why are there still Android phones sold today that is running 2.x?
