You might want to look in the mirror.

Scripting languages usually feature dynamic, strong typing. (The runtime always knows exactly what type its dealing with.)

Most compiled languages have static, strong typing. C is somewhat of an exception, being relatively weakly typed. (It's easy to make all sorts of bizarre type casts, sometimes implicitely.)

A few languages are very weakly typed, such as Forth.

... as in "You've Been Served!" Anyone can file a lawsuit against anyone over anything. The first problem is finding and getting that person into the Court. For this you need Process Servers to properly serve a Notice of Hearing. Default judgement is only possible with correct service.

TFA didn't mention who she is serving but if she can find anyone, the most they could say is "Yes, I was involved in setting up Tor Long-ago and Far-Away. No possible knowledge or involvement with complaint." And the Judge will excuse them.

Pretty lame of a law-student not-to-know. Most likely a publicity stunt.

Ok, this is the UK and everything is admissible. So he's done unless there some EU Right (unlikely).

But in the US -- mass lawless (warrentless) behaviour of the NSA & other govt agencies is such that any evidence from them should be considered "fruit of the poisoned vine". The agents willfully behave this way, apparently believing that prevention is more important the punishment (or that they can parallel (perjury) construct a conviction.

They want it this way, so why not formalize it?

Hmm that doesn't make sense. iOS updates are delta updates and have been since they first introduced the feature where you can update on the device itself.

Only when doing complete version upgrades (e.g. iOS 6 to iOS 7) does it download the entire OS. Or if you download updates via iTunes instead of on the device.

I just updated my iPhone 5S yesterday from 7.1.1 to 7.1.2 and it was just a 32mb download.

This universe shipped by weight, not by volume. Some expansion of the contents may have occurred during shipment.
