Ok, maybe by MAX 10000 people... Wooooohhh, that's like a drop in the ocean, compared to overall iPhone sales.
Be realistic dude, the number of people that read these kind of articles (aka us and some other geeks/nerds/ IT guys with too much time on their hands / 2 or 3 girls) is very limited.
The target audience, aka the rest of the world, doesn't give a damn about Opera/Firefox/Android/Windows/Linux/bla bla.
They just want nice, shiny phone that is able to connect to "the facebook" and, and
This said, i hate their corporate policies as well!
At my university we luckily did have a Bill, stating what the rights and obligations were for all parties.
On one occasion, i had two exams on the same day, studied hard for one of them, figuring i could pass the second one in September, because that was the easier one. The professor didn't show up, and so i would have to redo both tests. I went to the other professor (of the easier course), told him why i couldn't take his test, and also told him my misfortune. He advised me to go to the Exam Board and demand a grade for the difficult one, as the other prof didn't live up to his part of the contract. Done, and won. Got a 12/20 (which is the minimum to pass) for that test
Btw: i did pass the second one in september
I'm on a day off from work, and i still have to read about Notes... Please, don't talk about that shitty program again. Please...
(And don't even get me started on Eclipse...)

Most of the time (ALAS!) the smart pants with the new ideas is the first to one to get the door slammed against his ass.
I wish it were different, but it isn't.
Don't understand me wrong, i'm not saying they can't take a mistake, but at the third one i wouldn't dare put this to the front...
that's where i'd like it to go, but, as in, i imagine, almost every big company, changes come slow, and after a lot of lobbying...
I'm actually the person in charge of our security, and, as we take security quite serious, the auto-update is set hourly (which is btw the default). McAfee let the faulty DAT 4 hours (!) online,
I got it offline about 20 minutes after the first machine "hit the ground", but by then 95% of my machines had the update (550 machines over the whole of our country).
With the IT team we figured out a solution about 2 hours after it hit, even before McAfee came with a solution (which, at that time, wasn't even working...) and we had everything cleared up in 7 hours time, but i can tell you, those were hell...
Luckily, the whole it team is on Windows 7, for testing purposes, so we were able to continue to work and coordinate the "rescue mission".
I don't even want to imagine what the damage would have been if it also affected 2008 machines, which meant all our servers...
