It's more like "the Pi uses such a gutless CPU that there's no chance it'll be vulnerable to anything affecting high-performance CPUs".
Next up: Woz issues a press release explaining why the Apple II isn't vulnerable.
What's not mentioned in the writeup is how totally dysfunctional the market is when it comes to these security vulns. If this had been anything else, e.g. a safety issue in some consumer product, then there'd be a major recall, fines, media coverage, you name it. In this case, with a serious security vuln, the vendor basically ignored it, and nothing happened.
And that's why the IoS is in the state it is. You can't make a product so unsafe/insecure that people won't keep buying it.
Also, it's an Obama initiative, of course Trump is going to kill it. If Obama had set up a facility that cured cancer, Trump would shut it down just because it came from Obama.
Even when he did his own research, stumbling across EFF's website on fair use, he still would not believe me.

Unfortunately it seems like they're going to keep pushing thinness, sleek aluminium and glass design
That's an unfortunate side-effect of having the design driven by hipsters rather than engineers. I really, really, really don't care if some phone is 0.1mm thinner than someone else's (or 1mm, or 2mm, who'll even notice?), I just want good battery life.
Unfortunately the hipsters have dictated that it has to be thin, and who cares if half the phone users on the planet have to carry external battery packs with them wherever they go, look at how hip and thin it is!
The human mind ordinarily operates at only ten percent of its capacity -- the rest is overhead for the operating system.
