"How they managed to obtain that sensitive information is easily the most worrisome aspect of this unfortunate story. By taking advantage of ALARMINGLY RELAXED SECURITY POLICY AT APPLE and Amazon,hackers were able to breach Honan's Twitter,Google,and iCloud accounts. They remotely wiped all content stored on his iPhone,iPad,and MacBook Pro."
"But what happened to me exposes vital SECURITY FLAWS in several customer service systems,most notably Apple’s and Amazon’s. Apple tech support gave the hackers access to my iCloud account. Amazon tech support gave them the ability to see a piece of information —a partial credit card number —that Apple used to release information. In short,the very four digits that Amazon considers unimportant enough to display in the clear on the web are precisely the same ones that Apple considers secure enough to perform identity verification."
"It turns out,a billing address and the last four digits of a credit card number are the only two pieces of information anyone needs to get into your iCloud account. Once supplied,Apple will issue a temporary password,and that password grants access to iCloud."
AllThingsD reports that the ongoing patent and design dispute between Apple and Samsung has yielded yet another interesting piece of evidence, this time in the form of a massive internal Samsung document from 2010 showing 126 different aspects of the company's Galaxy S smartphone that were considered to need improvement. Each shortcoming is displayed with a comparison to how the issue is handled on the iPhone and includes a recommendation that in most cases outlines how Samsung should make the behavior of the Galaxy S more like that of the iPhone.
Iphone 5 or not this has been my best contract phone ever invested! Love every moment of it.
Sid, 07 Aug 2012Shuld i go for 4s? or shuld i wait for iphone 5?Wait for iPhone 5 . It will be release by sept or October
3.5 inch screen, form just suits my Asian hands. Luxurious and efficient OS. :) This shall be the last masterpiece from the late Mr. Jobs. Definitely proud to be an iPhone 4S owner.
Hi guys! I need your help. Lately, my Iphone 4S cannot detect a wi-fi network even I turned on the wi-fi setting and even said wi-fi network is within range. This just happened after I stop using my portable wi-fi (zte brand powered by Smart) and occasionally subscribed to my phone's network's plans to surf the net and social media sites. I've even done the following instructions found in Apple's official site:
1. turn on/off wi-fi setting
2. Turn on/off the portable wi-fi
3. Manually search wi-fi thru Other network option
4. Reset the network settings
5. Turn off iphone thru power off option
Other devices (including Apple products) can detect the wi-fi connection. My Iphone cannot detect any wi-fi connection even those that are not hidden and not password protected. Any suggestion/s that I can do (aside from mentioned above) without bringing my phone to authorized Iphone dealers for help? Thanks much ♥♥♥
You better wait until apple releases iphone 5. therez no point buying 4s now.
