The Washington Post is carrying two stores of interest to iPhone users. All the federal judges in Nebraska are provided with iPhones (4s) for work and, in my case, play. The first story recounts that the FBI Director went wacko about the new Apple operating system (iOS 8.0 plus subsequent iterations) because it is encrypted in such a way that law enforcement officers can’t easily get into Apple products. The second Washington Post article recounts that if you downloaded iOS 8.0 or 8.1 to your new iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus the phone no longer works as a phone–it becomes a really expensive reminder that Steve Jobs is dead.* We judges have been told not to download the new operating system until our IT people give the OK.
Do any of you see the same amusing irony that I see? Delicioso.**
*Apparently, iOS 8.2 issued a day or so ago fixes these problems. See here.
**If you find references to oral sex disconcerting, do not look up this word in the Urban Dictionary. Substitute “schadenfreude” instead–Germans are far more repressed. Trust me, I know.
