CREATOR of perfect hardware and software, Apple has released a patch bundle indicating that things might not be as unblemished as the PR spin would have us believe.
Apple released 45 software patches to fix security vulnerabilities (which its hardware is not supposed to suffer from) in its popular Iphone and Ipod Touch mobile devices.
Most users would not notice them because they were issued as part of the Iphone 3.0 operating system.
While the tame Mac press rushed to praise Apple for its "stellar security" reputation it had to admit that 45 is a large number when it comes to counting patches.
If it were Microsoft releasing this many the Mac Fanbois would be dribbling with bile by now. Linux fanbois would just laugh at them both, of course.
The Mac press has pointed out that analysts have yet to uncover any malicious software targeting the Iphone since Apple got into the mobile phone market two years ago. But then again viruses for the mobile market are rare.µ
