"But in the course of the last year as I thought a lot more about this I realized that there are many flaws with that model."
I think thats the problem right there.
Speak and then think... and apparently the thinking takes a LONG time!
Anything like this 'trusted certificate' or 'health scanning app' will just become another attack vector.
Microsoft should just build a new operating system from the ground up that is secure. If MS applied everything they should have learnt from all the security problems they have had over the last 20 years, they could probably make something quite good.
Wouldn't this solve 95% of the problems with infected PC's? Of course that would require reinvesting some of the billions they make from selling their current offering.
It's my 59 seconds, so yes.
It's my 59 seconds, so yes~
Fixed that for you.
These attacks are hypocritical as well. The attackers are saying to these companies "You must do as we wish. You must associate with Wikileaks even if you don't want to or find their behavior objectionable." They are attempting to impose their will upon others from a position of secrecy.
Actually the only hypocrisy going on here is by the US government which is bound by the US constitution, and is quite obviously ignoring it when ever it suits it. In this particular case they are trying to restrict freedom of speech and suppress information that shows that they have been breaking the law, using the government as a vehicle to further members own financial positions and various other dirty tactics that some of us suspected was going on, but up to this point in time had no proof.
Anonymous has no charter that states they won't harass, DDoS or use whatever means necessary to get their point across. In fact from what I understand that is in fact the whole idea of the movement.
There are plenty of companies that will support Wikileaks (and other whistle blower movements) as there are people that will support anyone who tries to show where the hypocrisy truly lies
Yep. Apple computers never crash.
Yeah, but that was only once in 2007.
learn never to trust a closed platform.
Why do people insist on regurgitating the same inaccurate crap all the time?
iPhone OS is NOT a closed platform, for $160 I get a world class development environment and I can install and run what ever I want onto my iPhone or any of the devices owned by my co-workers or friends. I also get a world wide distribution network for Apps I choose to sell.
If I choose to jail break my device (which is a 10 minute process) I can install and run thousands of apps created by others around the world (cydia etc) including ones which use custom API's and undocumented features, they may feature backdoors, trojans and steal my credit card details, but it is open!
So Apple wants to make sure the Apps people sell in the iTunes store actually work, and will continue to work next week? Good on them, its obviously working for the consumers.
iTunes Store does not equal iPhone OS.
That is the final answer why there is no gaming phone, phones advance to fast to develop for. Develop a 1 year title starting at launch and the phone will be hopelessly obsolete.
I guess a smart company would develop an OS that would allow you to change the hardware underneath without having to redevelop all the applications and development tools, and also release the development tools before the devices. And to answer the question posed in the title... Apple makes a great gaming phone, its called iPhone. Maybe you should have asked the question "When will the power of mobile chips match gamers unquenchable thirst for CPU and graphics horsepower?" and we all know the answer to that already.
