Apple can’t count….

My opinion of Apple and its practices has never been high. But this is just stupid.

Type in “1+2+3=” in an iOS 11 device’s calculator app, and you get 6 (correctly), but type it in quickly (as demonstrated in this video) and you get 24.

Sure, it’ll no doubt get patched soon and Apple will twist the incident to prove how fast they can push out updates compared to Android. But the point remains – how did such a bug make it past testing? And what OTHER, similarly stupid bugs that have yet to be detected, also make it past testing. And what if one of those bugs was in something fundamental? Something that breaks the functionality of the device? Something like the 1/1/1970 bug that would brick the device, or even the infamous “effective power” bug that would annoying reboot someone’s phone. Or even the famous crashsafari site that was only meant to crash safari but managed to crash the device too (originally, anyway).

OR, was there even ANY testing?

‘The Sims’ is finally coming to your iPhone and Android phones

The actual game you loved—not like The Sims FreePlay.

Something just blew up. In Apple’s face. Big time.

Why Apple’s Recent Security Flaw Is So Scary.

On Friday, Apple quietly released iOS 7.0.6, explaining in a brief release note that it fixed a bug in which “an attacker with a privileged network position may capture or modify data in sessions protected by SSL/TLS.” That’s the understated version. Another way to put it? Update your iPhoneright now.

Oh, and by the way,OS X has the same issues—except there’s no fix out yet.

In simple terms, someone can intercept traffic between you and the site your accessing, and pull of a “Man in the Middle” attack:

I could make all manner of snarky comments on this, but I won’t.
