The article on wired I find that interesting. But if a hacker has the ability to hack a cell tower and so on, do you think they would just happen to know someone that could hack the phone as well? snip from the article " By tinkering with this code, a local or international hacker could potentially initiate commands (such as a denial of service attack) that could crash the tower software, rendering the tower entirely inoperable to process calls or transmit data, Apple wrote the government. Taking control of the BBP software would be much the equivalent of getting inside the firewall of a corporate computer to potentially catastrophic result. The technological protection measures were designed into the iPhone precisely to prevent these kinds of pernicious activities, and if granted, the jailbreaking exemption would open the door to them, Apple added." I have to applaud apple for watchng out for me ensuring those pesky drug dealers don't use teir iPhones an cause my call to drop..
