An Apple iPad developer spills the beans on Apple's security methods

0. phoneArena 10 Sep 2011, 00:35 posted on

A developer who claims to have been the sixth person to receive an Apple iPad, recently talked to Business Insider about the security methods used by Apple to make sure that there were no leaks about the tablet, and if info did make it to the outside world, Apple could figure out who squealed...

Talking about force closes on iOS is so laughable it doesn't deserve a response considering you two use android.

I use Android and Windows, but Whateverman here has explained multiple times that he owns and uses an iPad.

Way to pay attention, Taco.

Oh, and also way to avoid denying that force closes happen on iOS.

I use an ipad 2 and an iphone 4, the force close for the ios just brings you back to the homescreen, so of course no force close notification, but it's the same thing.

A magician pulling a rabbit out of a hat creates money... people pay to see it and be entertained by it. It doesn't mean he is actually pulling a rabbit from the hat, it's an ILLUSION.

Marketing and advertising are the best examples of magic in commerce today. Even product pricing....199.99 looks better to the eye that 200, but go to the store and buy it the cash register figures the taxes on the purchase @ $200 and that's the facts.

Apple has been for a long time the best at marketing their products, it's an ILLUSION

Next, Apple builds it's own prison. Every apple employee that needs to test out the iphone or developer that want to develop apps, are being put in the prison with the iphone for a few months. with only a few drops of water and one piece of stale bread for food.

More disgraceful behaviour from apple again,the only reason they get away with this tyranny is all the brainless islaves buying every so called new product.

An APPLE can be rotten and have worms inside.....islaves still eat it anyhow

I will start by saying I hate apple but not because of there products. I hate Apple because of the cult following they have. If any other company took these kind of security steps, banned Apps only to later steel them, or even reverse the way a mouse scroll wheel works, they would be chastised. I swear I could stamp an apple logo on Jobs's turd and sell it on ebay for $100. Anyway, that being said, this secrecy policy is what gets apple so much free publicity. It works well for them and it ticks me off. Lol

Who says any of us are really mad? I for one think it's simply hilarious, and yet I still get the logic behind their security.

The many posts here that say I hate Apple shows fandroids are mad. Why would it be hilarious?

You can hate something without perpetually being mad about it. And the level of security Apple employs has always been hilarious.

The level of security Apple employs leads to billions more in profit and free publicity. Hating a pc company is pathetic enough, but following articles about that company religiously and posting hate is even more pathetic.

You know what I do if I don't like a company? I don't buy their products. End of story. I don't go around trying to convince everyone I know how bad they are.

And yet here you are, as often as not bashing the hell out of Android, its manufacturers, and users while singing Apple's praises all day long.

Like I said three times now, I get the logic behind the security. It makes sense. But to the average person any kind of super tight security over consumer products is plain ludicrous. We normally associate security with items that are dangerous in the wrong hands, targeted for destruction, or worth a lot of money. And since no single iPhone is really worth that much, until people see the logic behind protecting trade secrets and creating hype, they'll think it's funny.

So lighten up, Taco. Take the iPhone out of your ass. It's obviously causing you discomfort and distorting your reality (as well as making you a liar and hypocrite).

I bash you guys on mostly Apple articles. I rarely post on articles about android phones because frankly I don't care that much.

So you're saying most fandroids aren't smart enough to comprehend the logic behind Apple's security. I agree with that.

No. I'm saying that the average person in general isn't going to care enough to think about it that much.

And it doesn't matter where you bash anything. The fact remains that you bash it. This site is not split into territories. We can all comment wherever and whenever we want. You're the only one crying about this fact.

Everyone can comment wherever except there's a group of fandroids, including you, who post on Apple articles with the only intent of talking s**t. Then you get outraged for being called out on your bs.

Outraged? Lol. Okay. Might want to tone down the ego there. More like I get irritated at the constant barrage of bulls**t and arrogance from you and your ilk.

By the way, Taco, nice job staying away from the Bionic review and not chiming in to bash the Bionic for being "ugly" and also not attacking me without provocation.

Oh wait, I'm being sarcastic. You were there and you did ALL of those things. So f**k off with your stupid lies.

so what you don't try to help others. if you were sold a fake product at a store when you thought you were buying the real thing you wouldn't try to stop others from being taken advantage of .......

sounds selfish to me
