Apple Yeah I was quite busy yesterday, and nobody else picked it up, so we didn't report on the launch of the iPad 2. Since other websites went completely bonkers over this, we'll keep it short: there's a new iPad out. It's thinner, has a dual-core processor, faster graphics, and has a "new" case developed by Incase Apple. Contrary to all the "later this year" announcements from the likes of HP and RIM, Apple is shipping this thing March 11.

It pushed to the backburner what is the real story of that day: Android Market's malware released upon unsuspecting users!

Well I'll be. You mean there's potential for there to be malware in something that's not checked before it gets mass distributed through a centralised repository?

Who'da thunk...

At least Android users have the freedom to install malware and crappy applications.

So... Just out of curiosity, do you also think that antivirus programs make an unpatched release of Win 9x perfectly secure ?

Gotta love this "there's a blackbox in the way of that binary of unpredictable behavior, I have nothing to fear from it" mentality...

It's kind of like the difference between the West and China. In China there is less crime and violence and everything is controlled by the central government. But where would you rather live? In the West or under Apple's rule?
