"It seems that if a virus writer is going to bother writing a hack for a mobile, they are only going to do it for Andriod. A new report from security outfit F-Secure said that virus writers are ignoring the chance to download a complete Coldplay collection from Apple phones and are instead writing code for Android... More than 99 per cent of viruses are being written for Android with only two new ones written for the iPhone or Symbian this year. To be fair, we are not taking about a big threat to mobiles. F-Secure detected just 277 new threat families, of which 275 honed in on Android.
"The Tame Apple press has responded with horror after a woman who tried to buy too many iPhones was tasered by cops who feared for her sanity.
"Girls Around Me, the geo-location iPhone app, is under fire for undermining women’s privacy, but the controversy seems blown out of proportion. We're quick to ask what new way tech companies have devised to rob us of our privacy, but it's hard to see this app as a real threat to privacy or women. I consider it, instead, more of a wake-up call to those who publicly overshare.
No, this is no joke he's actually no longer with us!
"We are deeply saddened to announce that Steve Jobs passed away today. Steve’s brilliance, passion and energy were the source of countless innovations that enrich and improve all of our lives. The world is immeasurably better because of Steve. His greatest love was for his wife, Laurene, and his family. Our hearts go out to them and to all who were touched by his extraordinary gifts." ~ Apple’s Board of Directors
"Carl Ippolito, 52, a youth baseball umpire, returned to his car after a game to find his iPhone was missing. With a regular phone, the story would have ended there, but luckily (for we the media that is, not Ippolito) Ippolito had an iPhone, and so did his son. Together the pair used Find My iPhone on his son’s iPhone to track Carl’s missing phone to an alley near a lumber yard. There Ippolito came upon hapless Brent Johnson, 27, who just happened to be talking on an iPhone. What happened next is pure awesomeness:
"A 68-year old man on a Southwest Airlines flight for punching a 15 year old for using his iPhone during the plane's descent, ABC News is reporting. The 15-year old was listening to his music and playing games after flight attendants told the flight's passengers to turn off electronics during landing. The teen didn't respond, and the man, Russell E. Miller, punched him in the arm. Miller was reportedly arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor battery and has been released from police custody." | more
