what a nice gesture. You alert a big corp about a security risk and instead of denying everything to death and bringing in the lawyers, they reward the guy for finding and fixing their bad. thumbs up.

When was this study done? I'm not denying that SOME people do buy iPhone to flash Apple logo and show their "richness". But others are not that cheap either!

Those are luxury phones made for the rich wanting to show off. iPhone in it's purest form is a premium phone. Samsung and the rest also have premium phones, they just don't do nearly as well as the iPhone does single handedly.

"Particularly sites offering copyrighted material for free" - the wording is brilliant. Even gsmarena qualifies!

The most dangerous thing an iPhone can come in contact with, is its owner. Think: ios update adds waterproof ability, and the laughs that gave other phone users.

Misha.85, 14 Nov 2015Meeeeeeh, the link does not work... Since GSMA comment system:
-Breaks Unicode characters
-Doesn't let me use a shortened link to avoid said problem because "Spam protection"
-Doesn't have some sort or link/image handling like Disqus had
here is the answer from reddit:
" "/s" is supposed to imply sarcasm."
You could alternatively fix the "comments" part of the link when copying.

There isn't an OS that doesn't have a vulnerable spot. You just have to be smart enough to find it, that's all..
P.S.: whats chrome? :)) I use Dolphin Browser!

Stop being silly, or change your nickname to 'Ridiculous Observation', that way at least we'll know what to expect from you.
