  1. It's been only days since Apple fixed the wide spread iOS security flaw that made headlines, and now another issue has surfaced. A network security company has spotted another hole that is allowing malicious software to watch your every move.

    This can't be......oh, no..................!

    Oh well, Christianity teaches us that , "admission absolves guilt". You're in the clear, Apple.
  3. Apple may have imperfections, but its as good as it gets. Have something better? By all means, bring it to market.

    Could we have a new category of guest poster? I'm hoping for, "visiting shill".

    And that's what a guest says when they have nothing of interest to contribute.

    Is this what you're trying to say?

    So, it's a chore, that you're trying to make sound like a favor?

    There will never be such a thing as crackproof software but if I could ever invent such a thing, Bill Gates will show up on my doorstep for a loan and the NSA will put a out a hit contract on me.

    If Apple broke into your house and murdered your children you would definitely say the same thing. That's what being an Apple fanboy is like.

    I very much doubt Apple will ever break into anybodies house and murder their kids but they sure as hell are the experts at murdering gullible peoples bank balances.

    How cute Captaincranky spanking a guest for not making any contribution.


    BTT (BackToTopic) I love this news for whenever a fanboy tells me iOS is more secure than Android systems and how we should all be using their solutions :p
  15. Actually they did break into someone's house, but luckily didn't murder anyone. The guy was a journo and got his hands on an iPhone prototype. Naturally Apple went completely berserk and stormed his house like he was a terrorist about to set off a nuke.

    I'd be happy if I could get punctuation done correctly by you. Why don't you get off the web once in a while, and take an English course?

    Yay! Another round of free spankings, on Cranky.

    How are those copper socks working out for you? Try taking one shoe off, standing in a puddle, and hold an umbrella in the other hand. You'll should get TV reception, and need no longer worry if you don't have money for the cable bill.....

    Oo....., I love cool interweb acronyms.
    It must be, "spank a fanboi day", at Techspot. Or at least, "talk behind one's back day"! Way to contribute.....(y) IJLaL! (I Just Learned a Lot....:))!

    Apple is allowed to have a police force, which can summarily break into peoples houses? :eek: If they do, that's really scary.

    I bet you read your articles all over again and again, you love to go on about people not adding anything to the topic when you are not either, over and over, it's actually funny how you do exactly what you complain about among your half assed troll-rants.

    BTW IJLaL from your contributions on this thread, as usual! Keep up the good work Captain!

    PS: Your "apple police" add as much as "hate a fanboy day" ;)

    When you come down to it, there isn't much to be said about this topic. The staff puts things like this up, because it's arguably, "news", and because they get paid to do so. It really isn't. Security flaws are found day in, day out, in everybody's software.

    The only thing noteworthy here, is that Apple finally admitted to one.

    So, inevitably, and Apple droog, wil ring in and say, "Apple's the best", and you, (or somebody like you), will troll back. While denying it the whole time, and most likely, telling yourself you're, "contributing".

    PS, I love to listen to your little rants, pouts, and temper tantrums, laced with profanity, and directed at me. Wouldn't you be whimpering if someone was doing that to you, little man? :'(

    Pictures like this, are really nothing but internet memes. Other forums even have emoticons for this.

    So, you're going to eat popcorn and watch the show, are you?

    And should we be on notice that you think you're above the fray? Are you condescending to us? (or me in particular)

    I interpret it that you have nothing to add. Don't worry, it's just my oddball belief system in play. You're real cool, man......:cool:
