Comment Re:African-American sounding names? (Score 1) 476

I assume you're saying that tongue-in-cheek. There are a number of fairly common naming conventions used within the African-American community. One off the top of my head: Girls names that end in -—qua/a. Shaneequa, Tanisha, etc. That's of course, not to say only those are used, but they are ones at least that I've only seen used by that specific ethnic group.

This case went well beyond the normal bounds of "going viral" it appears. But she should know the #1 rule of sharing things on the internet: Once it's out there, it's on the internet forever. How many other cases have we seen of people trying to quash embarrassing photos or videos online? Has it ever worked? No. Even if it were possible to prevent them from sharing on the original file, he could have recorded with his phone and passed it on. Especially since it was sent to an ex to piss him off...

People may WANT to only share in a limited fashion, but we do not yet live in a world where that is possible. In THIS world, once it's out there, it's out of your hands.

This is true, but at the same time, when you have as much capital on-hand as Apple, why not pay more than the bad guys to make sure you get the majority of the exploits? The only ones that will keep them close to the hip are those that find out the exploit AND figure they can personally benefit more by using it. That is a much smaller portion of the bug hunters.
