    Why is everyone bashing android? It's like being a overprotective parent....you can keep your kid away from certain things but something bad will happen eventually no matter how careful you are.

    ALSO, the last time I checked a developer snuck a tethering feature into an app on the app store.....what makes you think that the same isn't going to happen on ios with something malicious or info stealing???

    Your comprehension level must be a little on the sensitive side... I have not seen any bashing going on. Especially to use the words like "everyone"... But in the event there is some "bashing" here is a little attempt to answer your Q...

    Because genius, this site is basically APPLE everything...most people on here are here because they own some sort of Apple produced device... Not like engadget or other tech reporting/news sites that report news on all devices. For the droid lovers may I suggest (Droid Forum - Covering all Verizon Droid Phones: Motorola Droid, Droid X, Droid 2, Droid Incredible and Droid Eris)

    Aside from the obvious of this site being umm APPLE news. The Droid is a ok device but...Just ok at best... and Apple did take a beating from them over the past month soooo.... its Apple fan boys turn to poke fun...

    i'm not good with code at all, but i know i would pay for little snitch to be ported to the iphone!
    lol

    yeah, little snitch on iPhone would be awesome!

    Unfortunately, I'd e-mailed it's developers a long time ago(before 3GS) about a possible port, and they said it wouldn't represent any technical challenge, but so far there was no sign that it would happen, so I wouldn't hold my breath for it.

    Too bad...

    A smaller percentage of Apple apps are collecting user data, but a smaller percentage of Apple's MASSIVE app catalog still equals a LOT more apps.

    The fact is that there will always be people that will attempt to exploit any app store, as long as there's money involved. Just make sure that the stuff you keep in your phone is not important. Never, EVER use on of those e-wallet apps that stores your credit card numbers or passwords.

    There's also a firewall app you can get in Cydia that will block apps from uploading information back to their servers.

    Android users need to just get an iPhone like the rest of the world and quit wasting time with a cheap knock off! Come on Android users! It's in the name! "Jack"eey wallpapers? The iPhone is a lot better then any Android phone out there because Apple rejects apps like this for the safety of their users. I seriously doubt that something like this would ever happen to thousands of iPhone users. That security breach on the iPad 3G doesn't count because it was AT&T's fault due to a network error which Apple had nothing to do with. Android needs to hurry up and die out already.

    My, my, my you need to open yours eyes I for one are leaving the iPhone behind because am fed up with Apples I control what you do and what you use atitude.

    There is so much that Apple can learn from other platform, for one widgets for toggling data, wifi and other features would be amazing but Apple nup we want to to take the long way round.

    No matter what I say or any other person you will always get the tits that think the sun shines put of Apples *** and there devices are all singing all dancing master pieces.

    I have been playing with the HTC Desire and all I can say is I'm buying one, now I have been part of this Apple madness for over 3 years since the first ipot but no more I have seen the light and am bloody running at it.

    And if you think the iPhone is any different your ship will be here in a few minutes to take you for a ride......
    The iPhone is very different to android. Unless you have proof to the contrary? Considering android appstore doesn't vet the apps submitted or even have a code signing opens the device to anything, just like this story states. You may not like apples anal hold on their stuff but it has it's pluses under these situations. In all the time I've had my iphone, I've not read one case of malicious hacking of a stock standard iphone, only those of people who've hacked it and had open ssh installed and stupidly left their root password unchanged. 3 years on and the iphone is still the safest. That's why US government departments went across.

    Um...iPhone has been comprised in a similiar manner. Though I have not heard of case where the intent was malicious, just possible or poor programming.

    The two cases that I know about revolve around Aurora Feint and PhoneSpy. Of course there was the tethering app which did things it was not "suppose" to, but different because it didn't steal information.

    I can say that right back at you. The security breach is Apple's fault. It's their device, they need to manage it along with ATT helping them. Android won't be dying anytime soon. Infact more users are switching from iPhone to Android just because Android doesn't reject EVERY ******* THING THAT COMES TO THEM. Such as Flash, Android supports it, why doesn't Apple? Apple wants to create their own damn world where they own everything. Android i think is a open source. Just because there was 1 flaw that Android let out doesn't mean its the worst phone ever. I can easily name some major problems iPhone's had. Androids haven't been out for a lot, but their still rising up and i suspect they may be higher than Apple one day since Apple refuses everything.

    Why do you think JB is legal now? Apple is being too over protective.

    ok first of all I completely lost you at the end of that stupid comment. U gotta work on your English bro. and second of all, if your that tired of the tight control on the iPhone, jailbreak it! It's legal now go ahead! All that crap u were attempting to name like toggles and stuff is all in Cydia, and Rock! They even got tons of dictionarys for your English there too!

    Do you blame them for being over protective? Look what happend to ur precious droid! U think apple wants crap apps that are stealing personal info from people who like their iPhones? NO! That is why certain apps are rejected! Things happen for a reason man not because Apple doesn't like the app! When an app is submitted to the app store, it may take a week or so for the app to be approved or rejected because they have people who are testing these apps and running checks to see if the app will harm iPhone users in anyway. If it does, the app is rejected. And again it is not Apples fault with the iPad 3G. It is AT&T's fault because they screwed up on their 3G network for iPad users and some hacker started screwing around with the exposed data which led AT&T to find this mistake. As much as I love the iPhone I hate AT&T which is why I am jailbroken and unlocked!
