@chartier Agreed. My wife and I use it several times a week. It's really handy to know when I should start dinner, and when I wander out of the basement, I often use it to figure out where my family has gotten to.
@griotspeak My wife is still a bit annoyed that I couldn't get XP on the machine we bought this year. She made me take Win7 off the last machine and reinstall XP. It's a funny world out there sometimes. :D
@griotspeak I'm not suggesting that new products need to target XP or iOS 4 or 10.5 to be profitable. They certainly don't. But you have to take a careful look at your actual intended market and respect what you find there. (Or don't, but on purpose.)
@griotspeak Depends on whether I want the standard to mean profits somewhere… For my open source work, I hardly bother with n-1; upgrade already. But my main commercial work is iOS 4 and 10.5 (32% of my customers are on 10.6). Drives me crazy, but true.
@evercode never mind. I see how they’re doing it. They just turn off locking in settings. So you have to decrypt/encrypt the entire device every time it changes. So simple; so expensive :) I wonder how long it takes to secure the device after the switch.
@evercode if you can rewrite the key shredding logic, then you could not shred the key if certain constraints are met (so you’d have to unlock when you first came home, and not again until you left). Does it behave that way?
