I agree with Guy but to 100%. Apple claims it is much easier than Windows.
In most cases it is true. This case with Iphone shows the "problem" with
devices making some job behind the our backs, not informing us about it.
Recently, I saw my Mini getting slower and slower. It shows, OS X tries to
sync with .Mac even if one doesn't have an account. Other sync functions
where ON too, eating up CPU and RAM. It goes to switch it off but you have
to load developer software first. It is not ethical.
