The China correspondent for the public radio show Marketplace tracked down the interpreter that Daisey hired when he visited Shenzhen China. The interpreter disputed much of what Daisey has been saying on stage and on our show. On this week's episode of This American Life, we will devote the entire hour to detailing the errors in "Mr. Daisey Goes to the Apple Factory."
Daisey lied to me and to This American Life producer Brian Reed during the fact checking we did on the story, before it was broadcast. That doesn't excuse the fact that we never should've put this on the air. In the end, this was our mistake.
They crack all phones but this article is heavy on the iPhone so what the hell. Pretty much just like jailbreaking, same vulnerabilities it appears.He claims that the company doesn’t use backdoor vulnerabilities in the devices created by the manufacturer, but rather seeks out security flaws in the phone’s software just as jailbreakers do, one reason why half the company’s 75 employees are devoted to research and development.
Or plug the gaping holes in the code that let a (fundamentally) American company to pull crap like this.Wait, you mean companies will act in a way that maximizes their profits!?!?!? I'm shocked!

Good luck with that. They'll simply become a non-American company if you try to put the screws to them. So, if you want to drive companies out of the US and lose jobs that's a great strategy.Or plug the gaping holes in the code that let a (fundamentally) American company to pull crap like this.
This is a damn good question because you CAN encrypt the backups on your local machine if you backup via iTunes. What is unclear is if you have the encrypted backup option turned on do the iCloud backups get encrypted? I have never actually tried to restore a device via iCloud backup so I don't know if it asks for the encryption password which for me is different from all other passwords.A better question is, why isn't that stuff encrypted by default?
iCloud secures your content by encrypting it when sent over the Internet, storing it in an encrypted format, and using secure tokens for authentication.
Compared to Straight Talk BYOP/SIM only plan with no clearly defined data limit and a variety of things happen to you when you go over some mythical number, including closing your account forfeiting any money remaining on the account and losing your phone number.Both versions are available with Cricket's $55 "unlimited" everything plan. This includes talk, text, and data, but of course with a catch based on their fair use policy, which is 2.3GB of data.
