    The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant compared to the power of the Force.

    Re: Who controls the past controls the future

    Here's my issue. If that software was operating as intended then replicating the issue should have been really easy. My position right now is that somebody is lying about something and while I'm willing to believe Apple is the one doing so, I'm not absolutely convinced of it. There's a non-zero chance that the complaining party screwed himself over by misusing Apple software and is now dealing with the fact that Apple decided, "Hey, this is crappy PR. Let's go above and beyond to help figure it out."

    "When to the Force you truly give yourself, all you do expresses the truth of who you are,"

    Yoda

    Yoda told stories, and ate, and cried, and laughed: and the Padawans saw that life itself was a lightsaber in his hands; even in the face of treachery and death and hopes gone cold, he burned like a candle in the darkness. Like a star shining in the black eternity of space.

    Yoda: Dark Rendezvous

    "But those men who know anything at all about the Light also know that there is a fierceness to its power, like the bare sword of the law, or the white burning of the sun." Suddenly his voice sounded to Will very strong, and very Welsh. "At the very heart, that is. Other things, like humanity, and mercy, and charity, that most good men hold more precious than all else, they do not come first for the Light. Oh, sometimes they are there; often, indeed. But in the very long run the concern of you people is with the absolute good, ahead of all else..."

    Re: Who controls the past controls the future

    That would be another option. I wonder... Has it happened to others?

    If so, how easy is it to misuse (assuming they weren't trying something funky) the software?

    So, yeah - sounds like there is something strange somewhere, but what it is we'll never know.
    Those who have suffered understand suffering and therefore extend their hand.

    I can't do everything, but I can do something.

    Also, third option going by his updated blog (there's extra in your link, apparently from when Apple called him), the initial customer service rep didn't have a clue. This option should be unlikely. Customer service people should either know what they're talking about or know when to escalate your issue to someone who does. Unfortunately, I've dealt with living proof that this is not always true. I nearly got stuck manually re-entering 30 credit transactions a couple years back because the initial service rep didn't know how to settle all of them out on her end. My ass was saved because when I called back ready to start this up, a more experienced rep, said, "What the hell? No! I'll settle everything on my end and walk you through resetting your credit terminal. You ever have this issue again, ask for my department when you call and we'll take care of things for you."

    How does the application remove files from an internal hard drive. Don't you have to give your permission and password to remove files?

    Oh! my bad. The permission and password is a Linux thing and not part of the Apple software.
    I'm pretty sure you can get Linux OS to run on your Iphone.

    The problem there is by proxy you give implied permission for them to access and "Change" your operating systems, hardware, etc by using the product. That not even speaking upon the fact you never actually own the operating codes and such you simply pay to use as long as they allow it.

    Most likely included in the TOS,that no one reads..and most likely allows a remote connection to YOUR system. See "South park episode about the "Human centipede""

    How is it that South Park is always ahead of the times?
    Trust is knowing someone or something well enough to have a good idea of their motivations and character, for good or for ill. People often say trust when they mean faith.

    According to the Open Source Software license, with Linux, I DO own the software. I can share it, sell it, even make money off someone else's work as long as I include the license in the product and don't modify the license agreement. If you buy the phone you should be able to put any OS on it that you want.

    Re: Who controls the past controls the future

    Thing is you can have Linux on your phone,BUT nothing says any and all carriers have to take you on as a client. Also any OS would have to have been compiled to function with the phones CPU chip. I suppose you could start your own carrier but you would have to bid for the bandwidth to run it.(good luck with that) and you might be able to piggyback on cell towers for a FEE. A PC generally has an X86 chip..some phones have ARM chips,Not sure what apple runs on now..used to be 68000,but I think Intel now.
    anyway,good luck with that...have fun.

    All the chips that are used on phones.
