    Steve is such a good daddy. I love him so. He thinks for me so I don't have to. He does this because like any good daddy he knows exactly what I need. (And doesn't really care for what I want.)

    Thank you daddy Steve.

      LOL.. I usually install VERY few third party apps on my phones. But there are always one or two I end up wanting. It's actually a shame because I think the iPhone has the capability of supporting some REALLY cool third party apps!

      In reading the article, I noticed Cingular (AT&T) was concerned about a rogue app taking down their network? That makes me wonder about the overall security of the phone and network itself if a single rogue app could have the capability of taking down that large a portion of their network.

          I think they should change the name to the 'iSnob'

              You're not the boss of me, and the iPhone isn't Jobs's name to give. Cisco wants their intellectual property back. Should be fun to watch.

                Speaking of Cisco and the iPhone trademark suit. Mark Chandler, General Counsel for Cisco, wrote and interesting bit on his blog regarding the suit.

                  Nice. I've also been paying attention to Mr. Job's $7.5 in illegal stock options and falsified meeting notes, and all Apple's backdated, illegal stock options in general. They seem to have developed a culture of entitlement there lately.

                    Do you really wonder? As an insider, I can tell you that this doesn't surprise me in the least. Large chunks of software tend to have some remarkable holes. :)

                    Motorola once released a mobile which had a bug capable of taking out entire cell sites. I can't remember the details, but it was something to do with an accidentally malformed message. There was someone wandering around with this phone and whenever they started using it, radios (in cell sites) started crashing.

                      Well, let me paraphrase.. It makes me wonder what attack vectors I should consider once I get my hands on one of these iPhones. :icon_cool

                      I did assume that there were better controls in the wireless industry and that this type of stuff wouldn't be as much of a concern as it actually seems to be.

                            Apo, for some reason I'm getting the following error when I try to vote. I'm using Firefox, and have never run into this before.
