There's a security bulletin every other week about malware and exploits on Android. The only iOS security bulletin I've seen a couple years ago was people jailbreaking their phones and not changing the default root pass or not disabling ssh.



These dead batteries caused by the exploit don't look like they caught on fire or blew up. Let's be reasonable people. That was a Sony battery flaw fixed years ago.

Both are common. No-one has suggested to me that I installed a Malware scanner and I'll be damned if I do.

This drives me insane. People say to me they just got a Mac. I'm like MEH, they're usually way too overpriced. Then they'll come back with "but it doesn't get viruses".

Silly people.

Apple's response: Patent malware that can damage a battery in any form, then sue the guy for millions of dollars.
post #66 of 71
Apple will just sue him for something and tell that they are charging their batteries with wrong electricity

I hope mods will clean this thread.

So much Apple haters! Really, you guys keep complaining about Apple fanboys preaching, but you are much, much noisier than they are. I see NO Apple fanboyism while I see PLENTY of Apple hate here.
"Yeah but we're on OCN blahblah mainstream blahblah we too 1337 so no Apple users here blahblah"
Yeah, so? It's precisely because we are on OCN that you should stop acting like sheeps: there are no Apple fanboys here, so why do you waste our time crapping on such threads?

And yes I insist, you are sheeps: blindly hating on a brand is just like blindly supporting a brand.

You can't keep an Apple thread clean, really.

I suppose that's better than not fixing it at all. Or suggesting that you're "holding it wrong"

Well seeing as apple doesn't really design anything or build anything, they will probably do their usual and not take responsibility.

They will say, that is the fault of (insert company that built it) not ours, and they will have to be the ones to fix it.
