this made me lolI wouldn't do it, and besides they turn them off anyway
Yes it is illegal. It would be the same as using your neighbors power for your mining rig
Your analogy doesn't really work since they let anyone test and try out their computers while still using their power. Apple even boasts about how much people enter their stores on a daily basis.
Yes but I'm guessing he wouldn't be at the store all day correct? Once he stops using the computers thats when that would kick in
The one thing I am curious about is what if Apple tracks down one's IP address and comes knocking on the front door?If Apple does find out that one is mining off their computer, if it's pool mining, then depending on the program being used, they could see the pool mining website name, go onto the website and ask for the user's IP address associated with the miner.
Apple is not going to go through the trouble of tracking down some nobody who happened to use their computer's computing power. ...But as I said, they are not going to bother, even if they could.
That's pretty naive. 1) Can you even install cg-miner without the admin password? 2) Mining coins puts a lot of strain on the network and computer, and would degrade performance, which could potentially reduce sales. This is likely to make you more than just a "nobody."3) Even if the ISPs don't hand over your data, your face is already all over the security cameras. Good jerb.4) Do any of you know ps aux | grep, or are y'all a bunch of script kiddies in here? You think they can't tell what's happening on a computer just because you put it in a screen session?Such amateur hour.
