The Journal reads the supply-chain tea leaves, iPod touch sales hit a new milestone, and iCloud is, well, pretty much exactly as secure as you think it is. The remainders for Thursday, May 30, 2013 are the one for you, New England.
Apple Shifts Supply Chain Away From Foxconn to Pegatron (Wall Street Journal)
A bummer, as he was always my least favorite of the Transformers.
Apple sells 100 million iPod touch units (The Loop)
And yet I don’t own a single one. Suspicious?
Just like when you steal content by watching it over the air on your HDTV, you dirty stealers!
Siri, Do You Use Nuance? (AllThingsD)
Well, that clears that up. Sort of.
A security researcher has pointed out that iCloud is not secured by Apple’s two-step authentication, thus creating a potential security hole. We assume it will be fixed shortly with the company’s new three-step authentication. Which requires a ten-step program.
Still, we’d advise against consulting Siri while at the craps table.
