Apple shares fall on iPhone numbers

| AT&T Inc. wiped some of the glow off Apple Inc.'s iPhone on Tuesday,

| to a Web site that contains malicious code. The hack, the first reported, 
| allowed them to tap the wealth of personal information the phones contain.

| slick interface.

| The bad news: The iPhone contract may not be the last word in overly long and 
| complex user agreements. Terms-of-service contracts promise to grow even more 
| dense, legal experts warn, making them even more difficult to understand than 
| they already are.   


iPhone matures the "free your phone" movement

,----[ Quote ]
| This is why FreeTheIPhone.org project is born, but even better, why OpenMoko 
| project exists. While some are trying to free the locked down device, others 
| are creating a free unlocked device from the start, and a whole software 
| framework to go with it.
