Re: Pressure will come from major web sites, not customers Why isn't a corporation with Apple's resources using https by default? Google provides the option to do so.
Not saying this ad-injection thing is acceptable practice, but https is a far cheaper solution than lawsuits, and as an aside it provides protection against the prying eyes of ISPs that choose to employ DPI.
Re: Pressure will come from major web sites, not customers Speed. https often times feels more sluggish. Apple wants their customers to have a good experience. You can use https on Apple.com if you want. It is offered in https.
lol I love this>>"R66T boss Mick Hall replied by e-mail that he was currently in Mexico City, had a heavy meeting schedule, and had to deal with a "current poor Internet and telecommunications infrastructure" that made getting me more information impossible at the moment. However, he promised to speak more next week."
Maybe someone should point out, if he is going to hide behind bad telecom in Mexico, he should make sure he is in the mountains, as Mexico has some of the best telecom and internet services going. Sounds like someone trying to hide behind answering some tough questions with an old BS statement about bad, backward, outdated, behind the times Mexico. Hell, one of the Richest Men in the world, Carlos Slim (sp??) owns one of the largest telecom companies down there. I have been all over Mexico, from the big cities, to smaller towns, and have family that have retired there, they can honestly stand right up there with America and internet connectivity they have. So I do wonder, where is R66T box Mick Hall that he has such poor internet and telecom infrastructure. Most major cities, business districts, and tourist areas are well equipped. My parents have 10/2 dsl in a small village for petes sake. Meh, but what do I know, I just know my cell phone works fine everywhere I have pretty much been in Mexico, including off the beaten path, and oh, in the mountain's!. Cannot say the same for my own country.
