Hahahahaha! That's funnyI'm paranoid of Siri...
Her voice just reminds me of:
Those sales also include the 3GS, 4, and 4S. They did one million in twenty four hours, and four million in about three days. I'd like to see what the numbers are after a week, or two weeks.all of those sales might be from people who were going from the 3G to 4GS
That's not a security issue. It's designed that way and it can be turned off easily although you lose functionality such as sending texts in the car when the phone is locked which would be why it's enabled by default in the first place. The only scenario here where this might happen, is if your phone is stolen and I really bet that thief is going to try and format it straight away and sell it rather than e-mail random people and mess with your calendar.Security issues with Siri:
Not only that, Siri is actually still in beta development phase.
Uh, no. That's like leaving someone you don't know by themselves inside your house with a robotic maid designed to obey voice commands that knows your basic personal information such as a contacts list, without disabling the setting that prevents people issuing it commands without your password. That's your fault.^ You can't be serious.
That's like saying leaving your maid in the house and she will listen to anyone's command from outside the house. Sure, a few things might break or a wall might have a different colour but that's what the maid's designed to do. Security like Swiss cheese is okay as long as no one do anything to it, right?
The point is, anyone who would have such information would simply disable the feature. You don't use a phone, load confidential lists of trade secrets, and then not make sure the phone is secure in every regard.Security by obscurity is not security. You are trying to argue since nobody can do it, it is safe. If the contact list leaked happens to be top confidential lists of trade secrets, now what? Chances of it done is low, but the point is IT CAN HAPPEN. Also, tracking is not as precise as you'd think. If the thief goes indoors or turns off the phone, you're screwed.
I've never said Apple doesn't have any flaws. This just isn't a problem. The only real scenario is theft, which isn't a scenario because the person isn't going to screw with your calendar, rather sell it. (And turn it off initially, if they're half smart.) And as I said above, no one would load confidential information onto an iPhone and not make sure it was secure.I don't know why you people keep insisting that "Apple can do no wrong". Everything has flaws: if it has flaws, admit, and provides promise to fix said flaw. That's how it is supposed to work. Getting mighty tired of Apple fans doing the "nah nah it is not a bug it's a feature" charade over very single fucking flaw, and blaming the users for its faults.
Mmm, indeed. I've got my standard set of apps and a fair few games, like Infinity Blade. I'm really looking forward to Infinity Blade 2, insane graphics...Anyway, adding to this thread:
I've played with the iPhone4S. It feels nice, plays nice, also works fine. It gets boring real quickly though without downloading applications to it, and I don't usually do much apps on my phones. I am sure the phone will get awesome if you have much more apps on it, much like the desktop OSes. Since my philosophy to never let a phone without Flash be my primary phone, I'll sit on the sideline for now. Now, if you say anything about HTML5, I assure you I'll drop this silly thing if every site I visit uses HTML5, which is now happening now.
//edit: Also, it looks awesome. Seal of approval from me.
I don't know if anyone's asked her that (and recorded it) but someone's asked if she's bulletproof... and tested it... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B489u_1ZBIASomeone needs to ask her to sing a song, and ask her for cake.
You make a good point. I don't have a cellular connection on my iPhone yet, I still haven't been switched over from my old phone. I'll test this when it is.>Well, I have to disagree. I went to iCloud.com and hit Find my iPhone and in less than 30 seconds it located

Turn off Wifi. My Axim (2005) can track me with Wifi too, and it doesn't even have GPS. Without Wifi, it is over: GPS takes time and air; cell triangulation is useless at tracking anything.
Eh? No, I don't. Surely they would quickly figure out that you can access that information from the lock screen though? Perhaps Apple will "adjust" this so it's disabled by default, I'm leaving it enabled personally, though.>You don't use a phone, load confidential lists of trade secrets, and then not make sure the phone is secure
>in every regard.
You don't work at a phone store do you. I've seen enough secretary Blackberries to make that statement. "I got this phone, how do I use it?"
