Apple Disables Trim Support On 3rd Party SSDs In OS X

arbiter1 Re:Summary is misleading, you can work around (327 comments)

Cn anyone reasonably argue that having a system highly secure for non-technical users with easy workarounds for actually technical users is a bad compromise? The people who are not technical need all the help they can get.

Keep on drinking that nasty ass koolaid apple serves. Mac OS X is no more secure then windows. Just more people look for windows flaw due to more dominate OS in the world. In a lot of ways Mac is less secure cause takes Apple So damn long to release a patch to fix a problem.

arbiter1 Re:Apple Fanboy (370 comments)

"Apple Doesn't Design For Yesterday" What about the iphone 6? it was designed to steal what samsung has been doing for how long now? That would qualify as a design for not just yesturday but least 3 years ago.

Apple Doesn't Design For Yesterday

arbiter1 Re:'Backward compatibility' (370 comments)

Apple's strategy is to make their software run like ass on older hardware to force people in to upgrading as much as possible. Sad how some older mac laptops are supported better by MS then Apple who made the f'in thing.

Apple Sapphire Glass Supplier GT Advanced Files For Bankruptcy

arbiter1 Lets look at this from diff view point..... (171 comments)

Apple let rumor slip they were gonna use Sapphire Glass and signed a contract for xxx amount in prepayment. They decide not to use the glass and now the stock which rocketed up now tanks so company files for bankruptcy. So now Apple pretty much owns the company for a lot less then what they would had top pay? Something to think about that this could been an Apple ploy to take the company over for a ton less then what would of?

Apple Will No Longer Unlock Most iPhones, iPads For Police

arbiter1 Re:Apple is root (504 comments)

There is nothing saying Apple doesn't already have your passcode. They claim they don't know it and can't unlock it even with court order but really how true do you think that is? They can unlock your phone and can see EVERYTHING stored on your account, this is just PR to make it seem like they can't which is a lie.
