Comment iTunes DJ/ Up Next (Score 1) 295

I miss iTunes DJ, I guess I'll have to learn how to interact with Up Next instead.

With apple sometimes these transitions are easy and for the better (e.g. almost every radical change I remember in Safari), sometimes they are just annoying and remain so (e.g. removal of whatever the grid multi-desktop ui was called... screens or something)

Rim used to make more money than god. It didn't take much to turn that around...


Looking at the past 10 years of net income quarterlies, I don't see a single quarter Apple should swap with RIM, though I didn't check them all.

Apple hasn't failed to make a billion dollars in a quarter since 2007. RIM hasn't made a billion dollars in a quarter (in the past 10 years).
(Although looking at their net income trend going backward I'm guessing *ever* since there wasn't a comparatively huge market for email phones longer than 10 years ago.)


Recent Apple Java Update Doesn't Fix Critical Java Flaw Claims Researcher 102

hypnosec writes "Just yesterday Apple released updates to fix Java vulnerabilities, but it seems the patch doesn't actually target the recently discovered high-profile Java bug that has been the talk of the web during the last two weeks. The two updates – Java for OS X 2012-005 for OS X Lion and Java for Mac OS X 10.6 Update 10 for Mountain Lion, are meant to tackle the vulnerability described in CVE-2012-0547. But according to KerbsOnSecurity, it seems Cupertino hasn't addressed the recent mega-vulnerabilities in Java as described in CVE-2012-4681." Update: 09/07 12:00 GMT by S : As readers have pointed out, these updates address flaws in Java 6, which is the version Apple maintains. The recently-reported Java vulnerabilities primarily affect Java 7, the patching of which is handled solely by Oracle. Nothing to see here.

Bruce Willis Considering Legal Action Against Apple Over iTunes Collection 570

First time accepted submitter oobayly writes "It appears that Bruce 'Die Hard' Willis isn't too impressed that he can't include his iTunes collection in his estate when he dies. According to the article: 'Bruce Willis, the Hollywood actor, is said to be considering legal action against Apple so he can leave his iTunes music collection to his three daughters.' Such a high profile individual complaining about the ability to own your digital music can only be a good thing, right?"
