Gosh, it seems like just yesterday the Macalope was questioning Apple’s commitment to security. Oh, wait, it was!
Well, this is a nice sign. Well done, Apple.
And, hey how about those comments by the Inquirer’s Nick Farrell the Macalope linked to:
Another problem is that Apple has learned nothing from Microsoft in dealing with exploits. Microsoft has changed its attitude to start fixing exploits quickly. However Apple still goes through a phase of denying that problems exist before it looks at them.
For example, the aforementioned bug in the Iphone [sic] operating system has been known to Apple for weeks but so far it has done nothing about it.
It has however released security patches to thwart jailbreaking software and prevent Palm from using Itunes [sic], which indicates Apple’s priorities.
Crow is a fairly dry meat, Nick, so you’ll probably want a sweeter wine to accompany it. The Macalope recommends a Riesling or maybe a Gewurztraminer.
