    The iPhone, like the iPod, greatly expands the number of owners of Apple products. The iPhone, however, uses OS X and has made it a target to be hacked. Since this has just been accomplished, does OS X now have a red target painted on it the way Windows has had? In other words, is the iPhone making Mac owners more vulnerable to viruses/trojan horses?

    I doubt it, it's most likely that the iPhone is just so hyped that hackers couldn't resist trying to hack it.
