But, but Apple computers are invincible and never get viruses.
Right?

The virus affected the computers controlling the production line, not
the chips being produced for Apple ... but as always, don't let little
things like the actual facts get in the way of your idiotic anti-Apple
nutter crusade.

make up your mind.If it’s the _main_ processor supplier, that means that
there are others, so it can’t be the _sole_ supplier. God-damn, but
you’re a cretin, and so are the cunts you’re quoting.

You're not realizing that the word "main" has two possible meanings in
the phrase "main processor supplier"

1. The main supplier of processors. Your interpretation.

2. The supplier of main processors as opposed to the other processors
that are also found within a device.

It was obvious from the context...

...the full phrase including "sole" after all...

...that the second meaning was meant.

And then there's the actual article:

'According to Bloomberg, the company in question is the “sole maker of
the iPhone’s main processor”'

:-)

Unfortuantely the idiot keeps changing his name, just like a typical
moronic little troll he is. :-(

Did you actually read the article? That point is clearly communicated in the first couple of
paragraphs.

Then you are in favour of your own ignorance.

Nope. I stopped reading them after they stopped producing articles of
interest to me and when even the Register was of more interest. (still is;
here ios a link to how Vulture Central handled this
story:https://www.theregister.co.uk/2018/08/04/security_roundup/ Note that El
Reg, not know for being friendly to Cupertino, did NOT use an anti-Apple
headline.) The fact that Gizmodo has produced an article that an obvious
anti-Apple troll thinks, if you can call what it does that, is useful, well
that indicates that they _still_ have nothing that would be of interest to
me. I don’t need their crap. YMMV. I don’t care.

If you're not going to read an article...

...then MAYBE you shouldn't comment on what it means, huh?

It would certainly help you look less stupid.

And your comment was stupid in that you didn't understand the
flexibility of the English language.

Yes: we know.
