Apple Outrages Users By Automatically Installing U2's Album On Their Devices

Rosyna Re:+1 for this comment (608 comments)

Not really up on this, are you? or know how to use an iOS device, do you?

You can only hide it if it is not on your device therefore, it is not taking up any storage space.

Apple Outrages Users By Automatically Installing U2's Album On Their Devices

Rosyna Re: I've been on data roaming since last Monday... (608 comments)

Sadly, it does not automatically download. Even with automatic downloads on. It automatically appears in the list of purchases and automatically appears in iTunes in the Cloud (if you have that option enabled), but it didn't automatically download.

Apple Outrages Users By Automatically Installing U2's Album On Their Devices

Rosyna Re:First world problems. (608 comments)

so choose not to add it to your playlists. Really simple. If it's not in a playing playlist, it won't play.

Mining iPhones and iCloud For Data With Forensic Tools

Rosyna Re:Last link suspect (85 comments)

Just a note: iTunes does not store the credentials. In fact, iTunes doesn't need to interact with iCloud at all.

Apple Reveals the Most Common Reasons That It Rejects Apps

Rosyna Re:The guidelines used to be paywalled (132 comments)

So if you can't id a user by any characteristics of the phone either (like device id or phone#), how can you create an external unique key to id the user in case he reinstalls? i.e. you effectively can't build an app that references your external server to provide data to that app?

(obviously not an Apple dev here...)

Correct. You're not supposed to. If a user uninstalls an app, ALL data relevant to the app must be deleted, including any UUID. UUIDs are keyed to a specific app install. There should be no way to uniquely identify a user across installs.

Reported iCloud Hack Leaks Hundreds of Private Celebrity Photos

Rosyna Re:The worst possible publicity for Apple (336 comments)

Have one absolute trusted password and one absolute trusted service. Encrypt all your site-specific passwords in there. Let the service fill out the passwords for you.

Make sure the service uses a Web of Trust style encryption so even defeating the password for the service won't leak any other data.

Reported iCloud Hack Leaks Hundreds of Private Celebrity Photos

Rosyna Re:The worst possible publicity for Apple (336 comments)

It's a little weird since a lot of the phones that took the photos aren't running iOS and some of the folders have Dropbox-specific files.

Don't use the same password on multiple sites!

Rosyna srcset attribute (94 comments)

I thought we already had this with the img tag's srcset attribute. Do we really need a new tag?

Scientists Baffled By Unknown Source of Ozone-Depleting Chemical

Rosyna Re:Ooh, ooh I know! (303 comments)

Well, of course it came from humans. There is no natural source of CFCs on earth. They aren't a naturally occurring substance.

Microsoft's Windows 8 App Store Is Full of Scamware

Rosyna Re:Notify them (188 comments)

All this means is that companies like Apple and Mozilla happen not to have notified Microsoft of the infringement yet. So if you're worried about it, go tell Apple's legal department and Mozilla's.

Why should they have to? The store is supposed to be curated and given these examples, it's obvious it is not curated at all.

Apple's App Store Needs a Radical Revamp; How Would You Go About It?

Rosyna Re:Slashdot proves it! (249 comments)

A people-based rating system would likely be an improvement, but it would have to be carefully designed to keep it honest.

I thought Apple already had a people-based rating system. Or does "Editor's Choice" not mean Choice by the Editors?

Murder Suspect Asked Siri Where To Hide a Dead Body

Rosyna Re:No, he didn't. (160 comments)

GAINESVILLE- We're on day 7 of the Pedro Andres Bravo trial. Bravo is being accused of the premeditated murder of his high school friend and UF student, Christian Aguilar. Bravo's phone records were reviewed.

"I need to hide my roommate," that is a picture found on Pedro Bravo's phone. In the picture you can see Siri responded, "Swamps? Dumps?"

The image was most likely a screenshot Bravo took from Facebook not an actual search he made. That was actually addressed by the jury who asked how he could do a Siri search when he had an iPhone 4 not 4s.

It was a screenshot (Shit Siri Says). His iPhone 4 was incapable of asking Siri anything.

The Gainesville PD also said it never happened.

Multiple reports of Bravo asking Siri to hide a roommate are incorrect... GPD Det. Goeckel certainly did not testify to that. #BravoTrial

String theory is math. Math is not science. This should not be in the "science" section of /.
