Is Tor effective anymore anyway? I thought there were some issues.

Now, I was an IT worker, and any IT worker worth a cracker finds the problem before thy throw money at it.
For an IT worker, if their phone starts to slow noticeably they will try to find out why - or should do. But you wouldn't notice a slowdown on an iPhone as they only slow down while the battery is overload and speed up again as soon as the battery draw drops. In otherworld IOS only slows down when Android would not be working at all.
No, it is to a design flaw. When batteries get old, the maximum rate at which you can draw power diminishes. It is a characteristic of the battery. Intrinsic in the technology. In order to stop the phone falling over Apple slows the clock speed while on maxim draw if and when the battery starts to fail. The phone is only 'slowed down' while it is drawing maximum from the battery.
It is an elegant and satisfactory solution that is only required by people who have abused their phones with excess overcharging. You can avoid even going there by removing your phone from the charger when it hits 100%.
And less waterproof. There are aways pros and cons. Why I object to is people who do NOT use iPhones wailing and gnashing their teeth in an effort to get the quality of an iPhone degraded to the point of losing sales.
I chose Apple. Why do android dolts who do not use iPhones try to Apple off the market or to do things their way. Who are the the authoritarians?
Yes and no. In 1975 the US (CIA) conspired to overturn the duly elected Australian government. This was shown to be true by evidence gained under an FOI request. For a fictionalised version watch "The Falcon and the Snowman". Otherwise Duck Duck Go is your friend.
So all the Aussie governments since 197 have known that Australian sovereignty is extremely limited.

Scuttling off to a dungeon might be more appropriate. Since it was a line editor he did not have "vi" he had "ed".
Vi - Visual Interface was originally merely an interface to the standard Unix editor "ed".
Very good spotting though, well done.
>But how does that make the state friendly to patent trolls ?
It doesn't. But when a Federal Court District occupies the same physical area one can loosely speak of the state rather than lengthily named court district. Just normal human imprecision.
I am going to argue about the "over priced". Firstly, I am prepared to pay a considerable premium for not having my data sold everywhere. So not all "price factors" are being considered. You are comparing Apples with rotten fruit.
Secondly, I went Apple (as did my family) when Apple went FreeBSD or Jordan Hubbard went Apple whichever way you want to put that. Since that time I have spent far, far less than prior budgets for the family computing (family includes 3 students). Your long term TCO with Apple is considerably lower than people think.
Thirdly, consider longevity. My phone is still a 6+ no need or serious inclination to upgrade. I would like the OLED screen, but it can wait until my 6+ dies. Still get two days use from it. But I never leave it on overnight charge. My fondleslab is the first 12" iPad (the first with a pencil) is still running as new. Some apps now have noticeable pause on loading but I think that increased overhead not the machine.
Fourthly, my watch saved my life by insisting I get medical help when I just wanted to go back to sleep. Septicaemia from two seperate organisms. Doctor said I would not have made it to the morning and I nearly did not make it anyway. I should have acted on first warning. Anyway, my watch saved my arse. That is simply priceless.
That it is considered offensive is interesting in a way. I am an equalitarian rather than a feminist but it seems to me that is picture of a woman's chest is considered offensive then that is just outright sexist, and indeed suggests a patriarchy (something I normally do not believe in). Whether they should appear in a professional publication (without purpose) is a seperate matter.
"Inappropriate" might be a valid term but "offensive"? That should seldom, if ever, be the case.

I spent much of my life as a petrol head. The only reason I have been under the hood in the last thirty years has been battery replacement or oil change. No point twiddling the carbie, no point re-timing. The software does it better than any human ear or eye can manage.
There is no real good reason not to seal an engine compartment nowadays and efficiencies could be made by doing so. Does a Tesla even have an engine compartment?
In general, it was a poor anology and in detail a counterproductive one, IMNSHO
@boring anonymous coward
Bluntly, yes. When a ‘touch’ becomes a ‘3 second hold’ (original iPad Pro) it becomes more than annoying, it becomes impractical. Yet I still have more than ten hours video out of it. I whould rather have less hours and more usability.
What I would like to know is if I would the speed back if I replaced the battery.
And learn Judo so you know how to fall properly. I have been a rider since 1970 and while much of what you say is true, it is not enough. There are things you cannot forsee and there are fools who will try to kill you.
Unless you are Superman riding a motorcycle is a dangerous practice. It an be very worthwhile thoug, if you can maintain your luck.
Your mention and apparent approval of predator drones reveals you. No, US law is not the default law of the entire planet. Nor should it be. Murder remains illegal in most jurisdictions.
Love committed a trivial offense that the ‘victims’ should have thanked him for. Instead they got offended because their utter incompetence was demstrated. The ‘cost of damage’ is not caused by Lauri but by the long term incompetance of the administrators who were not doing their job. (Fraud anyone?). That will not be taken into account in the US.
The problem is not Lauri Love but their shit security. That is where the serious misdeeds were done. They need to annihalate Lauri to cover their own asses. That is all this is about.
I will give you an eminently compelling use. If I had not bought my watch a couple of months ago I would have died four days ago. It woke me and convinced me to call an ambulance and now four days later I am home, alive, healthy and happy. Otherwise I would not have made it through the night.
Compelling enough for you?
In this case there is no product, no commercialisation at all. There is no need or right to protect any ‘mark’. In this case there is no right to protect.
In fact the dumb shit lawyers have hurt the mark. You can now safely use it as satire on this case.
Ie. “Just look at this case what a clear sign winter is coming”.
I would love to get Ariel Winter involved with this. “Are you trademarking my sexual escapades?”
Yes but who are the fanboys and who are the adults?
“Evidence-based, logical assessment doesn't stand a chance against gormless sentiment.“
Correct as evidenced but fact that Apple gives you EXACTLY what YOU asked for. A pin code. No one forces you to use any other means.
Given that, you are neither evidenced based nor logical. Apple gives you exactly what you ask for and it still is not enough?
So, fanboy, you can keep your gormless diatribe based on sentiment not fact.
I will be downrated to buggery, but your rant is literally insane. The iPhone (x or otherwise) gives you what you asked for
