Apple face palm bug

It seems counterintuitive that we buy iphones and use them knowing that there are bugs out there, in which they allow people to spy on you. We do not know how long apple has known about this but we do know they were warned and still decided to not do anything.

Personal Privacy plays a big party in everyone’s life, as well as their cell phones. The majority of cell phones are iphones and to have bugs in which people can spy on you is not acceptable. There is no way a little kid was the first to find this. Apple has known about this and they just have kept it a secret. They hire some of the best hackers in the world to work for them to find bugs. So why did they take so long to react?

Apple is one of the largest companies in the world. so some people might think theres a chance they didnt see the complaint right away or they kept it on to gain information about all of its users. After 2 weeks they finally sent a fix but this took so long because they werent done spying on the innocent people in this world. Apple is all about making profit and this move was one for them to get a better understanding on how to advertise to the world.

End Of Life Care

It seems counterintuitive that we would spend thousands of dollars to keep someone alive that has no chance of living. Medicare is used mostly during the last year of life. Most of the time the treatments are not successful and the patient dies. Having a machine pump your heart is not the ideal way of living.

It is extremely expensive and a complete waste of money to keep a loved one on a machine. Plus they probably just want to die at that point and cannot say it. It is a tough decision families have to make but they definitely have to make it. If you do spend the time and money then you will be taking care of a vegetable.

End of life care should not be a thing, people should have their lives decided by the doctors because they are professionals, not the biased family members.

Ranking Cute Animals

It seems counterintuitive to say that kittens are the cutest animal in the world. At the end of the day they are cats, and all cats are viscous and ugly. Although the poll states it, the poll does not feature puppies, and puppies are way cuter than kittens.

The dog is mans best friend, comparing a dog to a cat would draw an easy solution. But the polls show that kittens are the top voted amongst who people think is the cutest and by voting for what you think other people voted for and the kitten won. Not because it was the cutest but because it was going up against two animals that are not cute at all.

With all of that said the kitten is a very cute animal, it did receive over 4500 votes out of 12,000 people to vote on it. But it definitely is not the cutest animal in the world. There are so many animals out there it is hard to pick just one. Humans also think alike so if i am told to vote for which one would receive the most votes, i am putting myself in someone else’s body and choosing for them. Kittens may have won this vote but put a dog in there and its a different story.

    Am I taking the right approach on these summaries. please check

    I’m glad you asked, Wazoo. You are neglecting an ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL aspect of Purposeful Summary: to summarize.

    Imagine for a moment that you haven’t already heard about Apple’s FaceTime bug. You don’t pay much attention to technology news, and the story hasn’t broken yet on mainstream media. You happen to see a comment by Wazoo on a political website, you use an iPhone, the comment is short, so you read it.

    Would you have any idea, from Wazoo’s comment, what the article he read had to say?

    —Would you know how the “spying” occurs?
    —Would you know what program or app was compromised?
    —Would you understand that it activated the recipient’s camera and microphone before he answered a FaceTime call?
    —Would you understand what Wazoo meant about a kid being the first to “find this”?
    —Would you understand the context of the “2 week” delay? Two weeks from what?

    What you do well here, Wazoo, is to shape the news to your own agenda. It’s clear you’re suspicious of Apple’s motives and are dubious that their slowness (amazing that 14 days qualifies as slow in modern life) to respond to what you consider a crisis was innocent. In other words, you’ve grasped the Purposeful part of the assignment. It’s the Summary part that’s missing.

    I hope I’ll be able to convince you of the value of more precise language in the next few weeks, Wazoo. You’re too trusting in our ability to understand your meaning. As an example of what I mean, I’m going to revise your paragraphs for clarity, substituting specific terms in places where you’ve used IT or THIS.

    It seems counterintuitive that we buy iphones and use them knowing that there are bugs out there THAT allow people to spy on US. We do not know how long apple has known about THE FLAW IN FACETIME THAT ACTIVATES THE RECIPIENT’S CAMERA AND MICROPHONE BEFORE HE ACCEPTS THE CALL, but we do know they were warned and still decided NOT TO FIX THE BUG.

    Personal Privacy—ESPECIALLY REGARDING OUR CELL PHONES—plays a big part in ALL OUR LIVES. The majority of cell phones are iPhones, and to have bugs THAT ALLOW CALLERS TO spy on US is not acceptable. IT’S NOT CREDIBLE THAT a little kid was the first to find THIS FLAW IN THE FACETIME APP. Apple has known about THIS THREAT TO OUR PRIVACY and they just kept it a secret. They hire some of the best hackers in the world to work for them to find bugs. So why did they take so long to react?

    Apple is one of the largest companies in the world, so some people might think THERE’S a chance they DIDN’T see the TEENAGER’S REPORT THAT HIS PHONE WAS EAVESDROPPING ON HIS FRIEND’S CAMERA AND MICROPHONE right away, or they DELIBERATELY DELAYED FIXING THE BUG to gain information about all of THEIR users. After 2 weeks THE COMPANY finally sent a fix, but THE DELAY DEMONSTRATES they WEREN’T done spying on THEIR INNOCENT AND UNSUSPECTING CUSTOMERS. Apple is all about making PROFITS, and this CALLOUS INVASION OF THEIR USER BASE was A DELIBERATE ATTEMPT TO GAIN INTELLIGENCE THAT WOULD HELP THEM FURTHER VICTIMIZE THEIR CUSTOMERS WITH TARGETED ADVERTISING.

    I do get carried away. That might be too much specificity for just one lesson, Wazoo, but as I was swapping out your THIS and IT language, I realized how the specific details I was adding could amount to a summary of the material from the original article.

    Does this help?

    Please Reply. It’s how we meet the course requirements. 🙂
