Security Systems

Following on from the retarded security mechanisms in the wrong places, I've found some gold for you silly, silly iPhone buyers. All us non-iPhoners know that Apple is inherently evil, more so than Microsoft. Never mind the fact they make all their workers miserable with such tight security restrictions, here's how they're out to make YOU miserable too: If Apple don't like what you're doing with your iPhone (which you never actually own, if you read your contract properly, it remains property of the Apple corp) such as "jailbreaking" your phone to download free apps made by other users rather than paying the extortionate fees from the Appstore, they can break your phone. Seriously.

The worst bit they're currently working on is making their adverts "compel attention". Basically, every so often they smack you with an unskippable advert and disable absolutely everything until the user responds. Yup, that's right, it renders your phone completely useless until you comply with it's demands. Scary...

Talking of security systems, the ultrasonic deterrent has been in use for a while and failing spectacularly to deter kids. Have a go yourself with these sound waves; how high can you hear? I can make it through all of them JUST, if I listen carefully, even with His Lordship's Helicopter powered laptop. I think I might lose 18 and 19khz, but regain a low feeling of sound from 20 onwards. Must check again when The Helicopter isn't powered up. How'd you do?

Quote of the Day: "When I were a lad, me mother would send me down to t'corner shop wi' a shilling, and I'd come back wi' five pounds o' potatoes, two loaves o'bread, three pints o' milk, a pound o' cheese, a packet o' tea, an' 'alf a dozen eggs. Yer can't do that now. Too many bloody security cameras." - Cat Grumps
