Re: I think this comment section is a good example of why we still have a long way to go
Puppies are rubbish! Kittens are so much better than puppies it's laughable.

Man, chill out. Eventually you'll come to the same realisation as I have. The comment section of the Reg is full of keyboard warriors, whose actual IT literacy is that if a typical helpdesk drone. The majority of whom are Windows Fanboys by default, think computing was invented in the 2000's and more than likely basement-dwelling "gamers". They also like Android because it's "open" but don't really know what it means. Hygiene is also optional for most of them. When you next read a comment from one of them, adopt you best nerd voice and read it like that in your head, makes the whole thing much more fun! Remember also that the articles are written by journalists, whose job it is to get as many page views as possible so the adverts actually pay. This immediately negates any requirement for integrity.
I downvoted you.
You're not asking a "perfectly reasonable question". You're being a typical passive-aggressive WASP. Let's see some tangible figures instead of the blatantly pulled-out-of-your-arse conjecture you present here.
Wow. A downvote each for the ACs that point out the bleeding obvious errors of tear-down-only pricing to determine what a companies profit margin is! You chaps should know that this is the only cost that exist when producing electronic devices. Shame on you. A regtard has decreed it!
Both China and America have told the UK, in no uncertain terms that the UK will be at the back of the queue on their own, trade deals or not. Will you Brexiters at least have the decency of getting your facts absolutely straight before ranting feverishly. Also, straw-man arguments ("...paperboy working hours to curvature of cucumbers") are categorically banned. Facts only please.
"I've heard reports, although no confirmation, that OS X uses BASH for DHCP request purposes, so a malicious DHCP request in a coffee shop etc. could cause problems"
You've got it backwards; unpatched versions on Linux work this way. The reason that it's not as pressing for OS X is because it is not vulnerable via DHCP, whereas Linux based distro are.
There'd 'clearly be a problem' if every other iPhone 6 was bending. They're not. It's a handful of fuckwits putting their new bling in their back pockets and sitting on them all afternoon, then complaining loudly on the internet when they find the device has been bent by their skinny jean clad arses. OBVIOUSLY it's not their fault. These are people who clearly shouldn't be left alone with safety scissors.
Oh, and can you show the class the MEEELIONS of iPhones that have bent. Didn't think so...
So, Apple have clearly worked with mobile operators to make this happen. You have to as Mark, why haven't Google, or Samsung, or HTC, or LG, or MotoGoogleLenovo? No one has to wait for Apple. As pointed out, be pissed off with you mobile operator and Samsung or Google; they are the ones that failed to get this implemented before.
Kristian, if you knew anything, you'd know that while a not insignificant number of web devs are indeed 'mac heads', they generally use Chrome for development - it has a much better suite of dev tools, with a faster release and update cycle. But hey, that doesn't fit your world view, where you can shake your fist in anger at those awful Nac people, so you just keep on keepin' on, m'kay? Your numbers are out too.
