The Xbone, as its based on a stable and well secured OS (windows 8), will probably have a couple of day one patches, but most likely nowhere near as large and affecting far less of the device than this megapatch from Sony. Also, because this is Sony's first 'go' with a brand new OS and platform its more than probable that this won't be the first large update we see in the first couple of months after release. But only time will tell.
That thing is HUGE!
I think you've been eating too many apples. USB works fine to charge and sync the devices you mentioned so long as your PC has a 2A USB socket (they pretty much all do now). The lightning cable provides absolutely NOTHING that USB/MicroUSB can't do. The old 30pin dock connector DID do more than USB (analogue audio/video in and out) but lightning is just an over-expensive and over-priced USB2 adaptor. They ONLY worthwhile thing about it is that you don't have to wory about which way around to stick the thing in, however my nokia has wireless charging and I don't even have to plug a cable in at all.
'Notes' that its more secure? More like 'claims'. There is a BIG difference and only an utter fool would claim that iOS is less secure than the security mess that is android.
Also, windows is amazingly secure given its usage share. Companies like Oracle (java) and adobe (PDF) are the main vectors for infections and malware infecting systems. They have no concept of security or any idea that their users need to be protected.
What a tremendous waste of money! MS offers a similar tool, Microsoft Standalone System Sweeper, for free and as it operates from a bootable CD or USB stick it can detect and remove items that tools running under windows can't touch (rootkits etc).
Besides, malwarebytes main tool is getting worse and worse in detecting and removing the latest batch of malware effectively. Utter rip off.
Really? We should all use apple's overpriced hardware copy protected cables that do NOTHING more than a micro-USB cable (at 1/100th the price) does?
Their 30-pin connector was dreadful but it at least had a purpose combining both digital and analogue inputs and outputs over a single connector. The new lightning cable offers nothing but a copy-protected micro-USB which, of course, apple forces you to pay a large premium for and only offers in too-short lengths.
Whats so amazing about BBM? By now it should be apparent to anyone who follows tech/security news that its no more secure than any other messenger service.
Forget an iOS version. Apple will NEVER allow the control app on your phone, you'll have to jailbreak to stand any chance of using it.
Interesting to see how it compared to the Lumia 1020, a 'real' phone with full connectivity and an impressive camera, rather than a low-mid end SLR with a small wifi-only tablet bolted to the back as Samsung has made.
