CWmike writes "Exploiting an Apple interface design, identity thieves can hide URLs on the iPhone's limited screen real estate, tricking users into thinking they're at a legitimate site, a security researcher said on Monday. Nitesh Dhanjani demonstrated how criminals can easily hide the true URL of a site from users by building a malicious Web application. 'Note that on the iPhone, this only happens for sites that follow directives in HTML to advertise themselves as mobile sites,' said Dhanjani on his personal blog and in an entry on the SANS Institute's blog. The ability to hide the address bar in iOS is by design, noted Dhanjani, who said he had reported the problem to Apple. 'I did contact Apple about this issue and they let me know they are aware of the implications but do not know when and how they will address the issue,' he said."
Of course everyone panned the evil, controlling Steve Jobs for dropping Java from OS-X. But everyone else dropping away should be celebrated. No double standard here.
How did you back it up without iTunes? How did you try to restore it afterwards? What is the one button you are referring to? Your post doesn't really make sense. Am I feeding a troll?
Are you sure your friend backed up his iPhone? I recently did what you described, and everything was restored without a problem (by the way, even if you delete a program on your phone it is still kept in iTunes. You can simply re-check it and the app will install next time you sync).
Wikileaks does not matter. It is the source that matters. The reports aren't authored by Wikileaks, they are authored by the US military. What he (the original poster) was asking about is Wikileaks documents by whistleblowers in other countries. This is currently lacking. Please make a good argument, otherwise I am afraid I will mark you as a foe and your comments will not be moderated up by me.
Think of it as a report by Microsoft. Anything negative about Microsoft in it I would beleive. Anything negative about Apple or Linux I would take with a grain of salt.
It's American documents ALLEGING Iran is interfering. America has a vested interest in hurting Iran's image. Who in their right ming would give that any credibility, especially after all the American documents saying Iraq had weapons of mass destruction.
Did you seriously just cite the leak of AMERICAN documents as Wikileaks publishing whistleblower documents damaging to Iran?
He didn't say anything about the news picking it up, but of Wikileaks releasing it. Or are you suggesting Wikileaks should just sit on anything that isn't worthy of mainstream media attention?
That time still exists in many (maybe most) places in America. It wasn't that long ago that I was a teenager, and when I grew up it was expected you at least knew the basics (how to hook up a battery to jump start an engine, change a tire, etc). Engines have become complex beasts though, and even the kids in the auto classes couldn't be counted on to diagnose a problem in a newer car without plugging into it.
I see where you are coming from, but I think a computer is different than most things in that it is all abstract. Explaining how a blender or a rear differential work is far more intriguing because there are actual moving parts and things that happen. I know I am constantly learning how different parts of cars work (valve engines and rotary engines for example) but have not spent any time trying to understand microcode or how cores on a processor work.
I don't understand this fear. Anyone that knows me, or follows me for even a single day, will know I'm at work 9-5 on Monday through Friday. How does posting with my location during this time change anything?

The first test-batch was just harvested (English translation of Dutch original) on the island Texel and seem to be in good shape. The company states that rising sea-levels will create a demand for halophile crops. I do wonder if one still has to put salt on ones potatoes when they are grown in salt water."
I would expect better on slashdot. What about the expenses of servers, redundant connection to said servers, and staff to keep the servers running?
Not only did it leave out slaves, it also left out anyone who didn't own property.
