The FBI got no bite from Apple when it fished for help to break into a terrorist’s iPhone. The company turned over cloud information but couldn’t, or wouldn’t crack the phone.

And AG Barr is pissed:

“Thanks to the great work of the FBI — and no thanks to Apple — we were able to unlock Alshamrani’s phones,” Barr said in a press release.



Apple iOS 7 is Just Like ObamaCare

131002-obamacare-apple-ios7-launchThe president compared ObamaCare’s rocky rollout favorably to Apple’s launch of iOS 7.0.2. Really. Well, they both do take fingerprints, operate in a cloud, and spy on us.

“Consider that just a couple of weeks ago, Apple rolled out a new mobile operating system, and within days, they found a glitch, so they fixed it.”

A bug that allowed unauthorized users to get past the new iPhone’s fingerprint protected lock screen was fixed. President Obama promises the federal government, proven so nimble in the past, will do likewise.

Apple and ObamaCare the Same

Kathleen Sebelius got into the act saying, “…hopefully you’ll give us the same slack you give Apple”.


Bite of the Apple


130521-apple-levin-cartoon-Apple CEO Tim Cook was dragged to the U.S. Senate to apologize for his success. While his company paid $6 billion in U.S. taxes last year it paid little if anything on it’s overseas stash. All perfectly legal. Even the president doesn’t pay more than he owes.

Rand Paul said the Senate ought to apologize for the dog and pony show, but Carl Levin was having none of that as he took a crack at American pensions and 401ks by insisting that Apple send more money to foreign countries.

Steve Jobs


The quote in the cartoon is from his commencement speech at Stanford in 2005.


Steve Jobs is resigning as CEO at Apple, a company he started with Steve Wosniak 1976. The company now reportedly has more cash on hand than the U.S. government. Ok, bad example, you probably do too. Anyway, Jobs is responsible for the personal computer as we know it today, as well as smart phones, iPads, movie animation, the music industry, and God knows what else.. He really did change the world. Here’s how Walt Mossberg, the WSJ tech guru, put it,

…Mr. Jobs, in multiple stages of his business career, changed global technology and media in multiple ways on multiple occasions. And that changed the way people live.
