I'm sorry, you're replying on a website that uses English as the main language. You appear to be using a different language. Maybe you'd like to try again.
Do you think the guy is actually going to call his insurance company and tell them that he has that phone and to please raise his rates?
Snowden embarrassed the Obama administration. As much as I think he should be pardoned and let back onto US soil, Obama won't do it. Trump certainly won't either.
Lets live in reality people.
"Hi , this is some random website called The Intercept (fair warning, if this is a legit site, I personally have never heard of it, ever)
Would you ever sell your services to make a registry for muslims? We need a response in 24 hours."
Every single legitimate company: "uh... this is the media department, we can pass this up the chain, but this is a legitimately open-ended and confusing question with a lot of "what-if's" that haven't been defined yet. I'll pass this up to my higher ups, but I can't say when I'll have a response. If you want a sound-bite... I can't give one immediately."
The Intercept: didn't immediately respond.
You can modify an iPhone all you want, you just void the warranty.
Apple isn't the first company nor will it be the last to void warranty for opening a device up and messing with it.
So have a backup, holy shit. What would an audio pro do if their SSD failed? Restore from the backup you have, right?
Time Machine is a pretty sweet backup option, built into the OS. Set it and forget it.
There already is a solution to this. We've done it already with email and with the increasing compromised accounts/junk message spam on iMessage getting throttled.
If someone is part of a botnet, then when someone reports being DDoS'd, they report it and the higher level ISP's should be notified. Cut them off temporarily, give them the same message that violators of MPAA/RIAA are given on their ISP's where they get a standard message that they are a shithead instead of loading normal pages and have to call in to an ISP to get the ban lifted.
"Your computer is running outdated software, is actively infected. We'll lift the ban for a few hours, but if you're still part of the botnet after 3 hours, you're banned again until you call us again."
Something along those lines. If you're running an infected system and get reported, then fuck off and either call a family member that knows computers or take it to a shop and have it cleaned.
You can pay Apple (not sure about android phones, but I'd assume there's some kind of service) a fairly cheap fee ($79) to open the device and swap the battery. It's a lot cheaper than buying a whole new device.
The exchanges being stopped are the "bad" 7's for the "safe" 7's.
Refunds are issued by the store the device was purchased from. I've seen at least one major retailer state that you could exchange a Note 7 for a different model phone without any restocking fee. I'm not sure how the price difference matters in, but I'd imagine the store would do something for you, and you can be sure that the store will get their money back from Samsung.
Not that I am pro-Trump, but just because his name is in the email doesn't mean it's a Trump supporting email. It could just as easily be anti-Trump spam.
It's not even lulz, it's that some people are so desperate to cling on to ANY bit of power whatsoever that they'll push for the title. Look at wikipedia, the people that are... I don't even know the phrase, but the ones that sit on pages and deny any updates that aren't their own, or any update that makes their information look wrong.
People will spend 20 hours a day earning points just so they can get the "hero" title and get whatever mod power that grants, and they will base their entire lives around it. Because that's their peak in life.
And that's so fucking sad.
"No, we swear the tool won't ever get out to the public! We 100% guarantee it!"
6 months later: "well... shit"
Make it seven seconds, take over the world.
It was a bug with the system. To violate the CFAA, it would have to have been maliciously or purposefully destroying his data. Apple sent engineers to the guys house to attempt to reproduce the issue and they weren't even able to reproduce it at the time.
