Gah - sorry - I am busy vomiting. My phone I bought for two reasons - small size (hate having bulky crap in my pockets), and large buttons - easy to
use. It does basically nothing except call people and recieve calls - thats what a phone is for right? It has other features apparently - that I
have no interest in - it does have an alarm clock that I find useful.
Just out of curiosity, do you extend this same strict anti-tech stance to your other appliances?
For example, is your computer set up for posting on ATS - and nothing else?
Is your TV incapable of receiving input from a dvd player, game console or cable/sat feed, because those things are above and beyond what a TV is
Is your car capable of only reaching the speed limit? Does it have a radio? Do you refuse to microwave your food? Do you toast bread by holding it
over an open flame with a stick?

Apple will likely hold off on a patch until this flaw becomes spotted in the wild. That's how it tends to go with OSX holes, anyway. The virii and
other system hacks that do exist for apple tend only to be found in controlled situations. Every year at black hat there's always one or two of these

That said, now that there's press, and given the popularity of this overhyped piece of ... sorry/// meant to say phone there/// it'll likely get a
patch from apple in the next week or so.
