Comment Apple represents a mind virus like Microsoft. (Score 0, Troll) 131

Apple represents a mind virus like Microsoft. I see Apple as a predatory company, worse than Microsoft in alot of ways. They sort of represent an Ill in American society you don't see elsewhere. A drive to conformity, and closedminded-ness. They fleece their customer base, worse than Microsoft has over and over. They [should] be hit with Anti-trust and Anti-Monopoly suits. But with the irredeemably corrupt government in the US, it won't happen.

Comment Not really anything new (Score 3, Informative) 164

The idea that Linux might or does have security vulnerabilities is not anything remotely new. I sometimes file five bug reports a day on patches for things like this dealing with Debian, Rosa, Mageia, Fedora, and Suse. I just file the bugs, its up to the Distro Maintainers to read what I post and act on them. Sometimes they mark it as invalid, a Duplicate, already fixed, or Works for me.

Other times I get a patched, or upgraded package in 24-48 hours.

If you see a CVE of something, post it to your relevant bugzilla, and not just one, always provide the CVE and a URL to where you got the CVE From if at all possible. Don't stick your head in the sand and say its not your problem. Keep in mind the world we live in today.

Comment CDMA Carriers (Score 1) 96

This is a serious issue with CDMA Carriers that GSM carriers do not have. USian CDMA Users (Sprint, Verizon, and their Virtual Operators) have no SIM cards to pull from their devices. These people can't just pull a SIM out and put it in another device. Issues like this are why Canada is discontinuing all CDMA as of January 1st 2017.
