Right, because all bets are off just because you needed to leave your password-protected phone out of your sight for five minutes.
Ever watch the wire? You don't need high tech cracks to listen in on somebody's calls if you can get physical access to the phone.

Why the hell would I watch the wire? Do you have any proof for your claim?

What part of "user intent" are you having trouble understanding?

That's actually a pretty stupid quote. Especially when a significant portion of the "few users" are extremely high profile, such as - I don't know - the entire German government.
The point is: BlackBerry zealots are wilfully misinterpreting this issue as, "supposedly unhackable phone hacked in five minutes! Ha! This could never happen to a BlackBerry!", whilst both missing the point of the BlackPhone and of the nature of this hack. "High profile" is meaningless to someone intending to build a botnet. It is only of interest to parties that wouldn't tout their hacks.

Apple’s iMessage Is Being Taken Over by Spammers
Quote:Apple’s iMessage system spans across the iPad, iPhone, and Apple’s laptop and desktop systems. That fusion of the desktop and mobile world makes it particularly easy for scammers to write a Mac OS script that can send messages to all types of devices just as fast as Apple will allow. “It’s almost like a spammer’s dream,” says Landesman. “With four lines of code, using Apple scripts, you can tell your Mac machine to send message to whoever they want.”

It would be nice if you had to accept an invite before getting messages from strangers. Heck, BBM allows you to set up a capcha where only the people who know the answer or password can send you an invite.

I wonder how many can tell the difference between an iMessage and a text message?

Just wait until he learns how easy it is to send email!

Perhaps the author and our lil spud are suggesting that Apple should make sending communications more difficult. Maybe they could implement a CAPTCHA that appears before sending each iMessage, or possibly increasing the number of lines of code required to send a message to a more unwieldy seven or eight.

That's not really an excuse. One app shouldn't be able to alter other apps in a truly secure os.

What OS are you talking about? Can you elaborate?

I suppose there is always the highly secure option of having no apps available whatsoever, of course.
