I thought we lived in an 140-character-message world now. Why in the world would any self respecting tech giant allow more than that.

Apple needs to implement something in iMessage that allows you to block messages from particular people. I think we will see expansion on do not disturb in iOS 7. I iBlacklist figured it out, and was helpful preventing repeat texts from advertising firms..

Step 7: Repeat until you die of blood loss.
That made me happy.

Jerks.
Are you aware what the hackintosh community even is? It's a community dedicated to getting OS X running on non-Apple x86 machines. Please don't misuse this word. Thanks

You would be screwed if you made a typo in the message and only noticed after you sent it.

This can be easily recreated by sending a single long iMessage with copy and pasted emojis. It will freeze the messages app and you won't be able to open it at all. To fix, just go to a contact and click send message, then cancel the message. You will be taken to message list and just delete the long message. Pretty funny prank.

Don't worry. Apple will offer iRegrowHair Lotion at $999/bottle coming in super light and thin Aluminum and glass cases (It's magical!).

Those are the same sort who jailbreak Apple's phones and tablets.

It depends on how the DDoS attack is structured. This kind of repeating message can easily be stopped by a little bit of spam prevention code. Quite frankly, I'm surprised iMessage doesn't work that way.

Why this appears on the mac blog rather than the ios blog is beyond me.

I actually go over my Data Limit pretty often, I miss having unlimited a lot. But usually those texts come to me just fine, they also email me as well to let me know.

So usually if I get those, I get an email at the exact same time. So I'm unsure but I will contact AT&T and ask them.

I just got those messages this morning. I had to turn off me and my brother's iMessages.
