i walked into a apple mega store the other day with my son who wanted to buy an iphone. after he bought the phone we had to go to optus and get a micro sim card for it and then go back and they would help him set it up.

now at the time there were about 150 people in the store. when we came back as we walked to the doors i thought bloody hell...now we have to find the bloke who sold it too us and hope he is free to help us.

as we got to the doors someone whom worked there and we had not seen before or dealt with said "how you going...your back to set up you phone". my son and i looked at each other. it had been about 30 mins since we had left. i said to the bloke "how the hell do you know that....we havent seen you before". he just laughed and sought of fobbed it off and took us inside to set it up.

i checked and he did have an earpiece inside his ear. just goes to show...they are watching and listening to everything you say and do in there.

i decided to play on this a bit. he asked me if there was anything he could do for me and if i had an iphone, ipad or laptop. told him no...nothing apple. told him you may have the kids brainwashed into everything apple but i avoid like the plague anything to do with this mega company who can make items for probably $100 using slave chinese labour and sell it to the westerners for $1000.


An earpiece in place for a guy at the Apple store and they were expecting you back? Scary at best.

I refuse to deal with Apple, just due to the proprietary nature of their devices.

I have an Asus tablet w Android and my smart phone is a Samsung w android .........use to use apple and have not looked back since and now that im hearing about forced ads, i will NEVER buy apple again and thats a promise!!!!!

Are you guys who use apple still only allowed to use 1app at a time?

On my android devices i have internet radio playing, while gaming, using the net, texting, etc pretty much all at the same time.......1 of the main reasonz i switched to android

Not an Apple fan, but if you think using a Google OS is somehow less pernicious than Apple then I just have to laugh.

Oh and no need for a print screen. Got home and checked, and the page I was seeing was the Apple home page.. Apple Although I had zero internet service.

After some thought, maybe the wireless network had a temporary misconfiguration? Although I had never seen anything like this before.

Even when the computer is turned off


I don't see how that's technically feasible.



en.wikipedia.org...

Read all about it. It's Intel's hidden new power. Amazing isn't it? This all started in 2003 when Microsoft got together with Phoenix Bios to create a hardware kill switch. Microsoft was mad about the whole bootleg XP cd's around the globe that were robbing them of revenue....so now there is a kill switch in the hardware to get ya.

This happened to me too!!! I was enraged! After not having internet for over a week due to Hurricane Issac and having it back for only a week I was so angry I updated my iOS, it pissed me off!!!

Things did eventually get back to normal, and I wasn't getting an Ad for iPone 5, but it kept tell me it couldn't access the page I was trying to load, it sent me to Apple's page tho.... I could pick anything I wanted from that page. It was this page or ATS in general, I was trying to get to, it finally worked after I reset my Router, and erased my Network setting on my iPad, I was pissed!!!

Wow Apple and Samsung are making the Ipad's processor in Texas, they must really want to keep security over that architecture and it's capabilities:

en.wikipedia.org...

Speaking of Security and looking at that page......do ya think Apple keeps a Database with your face?....since they have facial recognition capability with the Ipad running?

ohh looky....new Apple Facial Recognition patent:

appft1.uspto.gov.../netahtml/PTO/search-bool.html&r=1&f=G&l=50&co1=AND&d=PG01&s1=20110317872&OS= 20110317872&RS=20110317872

Put stickers over the cameras if you want to stay out of their database.

Great troll thread.

Buy whatever you want, it's not a religion/crusade.

A computer is never really turned off unless there is 0 electricity source. Just because YOU turn an iPad off doesn't mean it's not doing anything in the background. This scenario is very realistic and also very possible

That's nuts!! , but I went to ark.intel and looked up my specific proc. It seems this tech is only on select i5s & i7s. I'm in the clear.

I don't see how that's technically feasible. The only juice outside of the main power source is the cmos battery to my knowledge. Are you saying the cmos gets tapped to run this chip...and mysteriously connects to the internet you need juice for the board to run..the nic...I just don't see this happening..sorry.


That's because it isn't. What this guy is probably talking about is the TPM chips and integrated security on the motherboard itself. This system of forced security on the board itself can allow manufactures to create a list of "allowed" operating systems. If your OS doesn't have the correct key, either because it's not allowed, or it's an illegal copy, the system will not run it.

there is no hidden underlying OS built into the chips that can connect to the internet. There is no network based security check being run, at all, ever, powered on or not.

nope, look at the wiki on vpro tech. they can remote power on a chip, operate an os from a remote image, and all sorts of other goodies. crazy, eh?

Anybody with an Apple product ever notice it turns on when you walk into a room? How's Apple using their hardware to detect when humans enter a room? When the computer is sleeping....it ain't really sleeping.

I have many Apple products. I have never witnessed any of my devices turning on when I walk into a room. Total BS.

Intel has a new hardware feature in their chips where there is a kernel running.....that ain't for YOU.
Even if you remove a harddrive or memory sticks from a computer with their new feature.....they can still boot up a hidden operating system they have embedded into chips. This new system can connect to networks even with your computer turned off. She's a 100% silent hidden core just made for them.


I can't believe you got three stars for stating something as silly and impossible as this. I will qualify that:

a) it is in fact possible to have a hidden OS in a chip, not just any, but in some.

b) it's not in fact possible to operate network equipment (which is quite power-hungry) without a power source. Try to put the main switch on the power line into your house in the "OFF" position and see what happens to your fridge.

""""Intel vPro technology is an umbrella marketing term used by Intel for a collection of computer hardware technologies to enable management features such as remote access to the PC (including monitoring, maintenance, and management) INDEPENDENT OF THE STATE OF THE OPERATING SYSTEM (OS) OR POWER STATE OF THE PC""""

Does the Apple A5 processor have the same capability as Intel vPro? ....classified.

I set this up to run with SCCM for a previous employer. Control of any system, anywhere in the world, as long as there's an internet connection nearby.

Well, That's what you get for falling for and buying apple crap. lol

Stick with Android or go with nothing.

At least then you have some control. lol
