I guess this demonstrates just how attractive this medium has become for malware writers. Some owners will possibly need a new handset.

Conspiracy theorists might suggest that the only people who benefit from a virus attack like this are the mobile phone vendors. I guess my phone is pretty secure since it has no apps, no bluetooth, no internet, no anything really by current standards. I can make and receive phone calls and texts on it though, so it'll do for mehttp://www.techsupportalert.com/freeware-forum/images/smilies/smile.gif

I know exactly what you meanhttp://www.techsupportalert.com/freeware-forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif
What amazes me is how much time people spend sitting around discussing their iPhones.....probably more time than they spend talking on them. Maybe when i talk to people in future i should insert the phrase "sent from my face" after every sentencehttp://www.techsupportalert.com/freeware-forum/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif

When I was studying for my PhD, two things I came across really surprised me. These were the average father spends less than 30 minutes a week talking to his children and that parents in general spend 40% less time with their children than they did a generation ago.

IMO you don't need to be a Luddite to forecast where this might lead to.

For others like me who have no idea what in the world a Luddite is:

Quote:


In modern usage, "Luddite" is a term describing those opposed to industrialisation, automation, computerisation or new technologies in general.[1]

Geez, MC, you come up with some good ones....
