IPhone's security rivals Windows 95
Posted 23 October 2007 - 08:35 PM
It wasn't long after Apple released the iPhone in June that researchers discovered that every application on the device -- from the calculator on up -- runs as "root," i.e., with full system privileges. As a result, a serious vulnerability in any of these applications would allow hackers to gain complete control of the device.
Well... it's said that this is the case on all PDAs but I know that at least those that run MS .Net Compact, follow a different security model. (don't confuse it with Vista's UAC which seems to be lame)

i have to disagree with post numbeeeer... 3. oh! it's you, Ali! anyway ... i had a hard time trying to skip paragraphs that are irrelevant to get to the actual article!
but honestly, these are the same people who accused MS of 'war crime' because of the root user problem.

I just found out that all of his articles are full of sarcasm that only prove the poor guy is seriously trapped by his emotions thus often biased and less reliable. here is one of the things i found very unfair:

Flash (the term is used to refer to Adobe ) has spent the last decade making the ridiculously bad websites and, most recently, powering the lowest common denominator of blocky web video clips.

This kicks ass. Ive been dying to set-up Windows Server Applications on a machine that is on 24/7.
A bit pricy, but it is expected from a company like Microsoft.
