    I ddn't realise that a working business model made a company incapable of errors or mistakes.

    I certainly wouldn't tamper with the most successful business model in the world simply to satisfy a handful of complaints.

    Great new Apple motto 'Too big and successful to care - if it ain't broke, don't fix it'

     

    One of the great things about Apple is that they actually do care. I once bought something by accident (an e-book rather than audio book) and shot them an e-mail. I got a nice e-mail from a person the next day and a refund... and then a follow up email asking if there was anything else they could help with.

     

    I was amazed as almost all other large organisation i've dealt with just ignore you or shoot you their T&Cs.

    What does your whine have to do with security?

    Actually, the motto is "We have the most successful business model in the world.  We're not going to tamper with it simply to satisfy a handful of complaints."

    In this case threadjacking is a good thing. Let this thread, the overheating thread, the Flash threads all spiral off into nonsense. I believe the moderators are letting these become dumping grounds for the OCD crowds who have to constantly bark about something.

    I think you're right.

    A) A superhero
    B) A light on a camera

    C) Required to view certain content on the web, which many people whine about not being able to view on their iPad.

    The further the discussion is going, I'm

    Feeling the increased urge not to answer the security questions if prompted.

     

    Why? The legislation proposed by Michael Rogers last year.... CISPA. It has been enacted onto the American constitution.

     

    To sum up the concept of CISPA, it basically gives the US government the ability to have access to databases of American companies WITHOUT THE NEED OF A SEARCH WARRANT. So anywhere along the line where the US government feels something is *against sexurity* they can just mine the databases of these companies with the exception of a few to look at the data...

     

    I certainly hope Obama vetoed this crap but it's passed in law.

     

    Why the **** should the world's data be inspected by the US? Every country has its own government and agencies to handle its own issues.

     

    Plus, the way these questions are pointed are extremely scary. They're pointed questions. No doubt the actual intent is to allow Apple customers to tell more about themselves... Even after billling details...

     

    These are extra reasons people shouldn't comply, especially non-Americans.

    Where are you getting that this is already passed?  It passed the House of Representatives but at this point that is it.  It's now on to the Senate for vote.

    lol OCD crowds? What are you even talking about you arrogant random person, no my problem is I bought an expensive product for work that has completely put me off buying another apple product. I've never had a problem with apple so stop assuming things, I'm sorry I almost choked on your ego. I'm a head chef of a restaurant and wasn't happy that is all. Agreed I posted in the wrong place but my mistake, sorry for not being as perfect as you.
