    I think it's really Apple's ploy to offer an inferior product, using AT&T as a scapegoat, because no other carrier wants to be burdened with their problematic offerings.

    I mean, considering what Apple already blames on AT&T (poor battery life, battery explosion, constant dropped calls where no other 3G phones have issues, software failures, security holes in applications that Apple signed), how can this be far from the truth?
    Wow. What colour is the sky in your little world?

    I have seen some grasping at straws to justify irrational Apple hate, but this may just take the cake. Inferior product? Really?

    My 4 year old launch day Gen 1 iPod Touch is more rock solid than my brand new BBs ever were, even after drops to the floor, in a puddle, and worse. Not a single one of my iPods - Gen 2 shuffle, Gen 3 nano, iPod Classic and Gen 1 Touch has ever, EVER had a build problem. My sisters 3rd Gen iPod is still perfect. She has a Gen 3 nano, also perfect. My brothers 2 Classics are perfect. My mothers nano is perfect. My fiances iPod Touch Gen 2 is flawless. Oh and the sisters boyfriends iPhone? I was asking him about dropped calls when he was down visiting - he hasn't had any. So didja think it could *GASP* be a AT&T network problem? Since he's on Rogers, it's a different network, and down here we have EDGE only, and he still didn't drop calls.

    I wish I could say the same for my Pearl, my 2 Curves, my mothers Curve, my fiance's Pearl, and my Storm.

    But, you know, that shoddy Apple build quality

    I have 3 Creative Labs mp3 players too. All are extremely buggy or totally broken in under 6 months.

    But oh yes, that shoddy Apple build quality is lengendary. I remember all the times I havd to take my iPod apart after putting it in my pocket to get dust from under the screen...oh WAIT! That was my BB's!

    But yes, that shoddy Apple build quality sure is legendary.

    It could be me being irrational but I don't fully trust the iphone/ipad for security and android devices even less.
    This is one area that BB will be superior for some time but it comes at a cost.
    I was screwing around with the password protection on my Tour when I typed my password in wrong causing the device to wipe itself clean. Now I set the password to 10 attempts. Thank god the BB was backed up.

    This is Apple's issue. It's their device. They are allowing this information to be insecure on their device. To put this on AT&T solely is moronic. This information should be encrypted on the device itself. Regardless my point is valid..you don't see this stuff on RIM's devices.

    The market has been asking for something like to happen for a long time by not taking privacy and security seriously.
    It's just dumb. Company sold devices. Registered new users. And they screwed up on their part. Not device security was breached. But AT&T's servers!!!

    For real, the info is unsecure on ATT'S SERVERS. This has absolutely nothing to do with the device itself nor was any device invaded itself.

    Just more lame attempts to hate on Apple for no reason.

    Also, all that was obtained from AT&T's servers were the email addresses of those affected.
    So the worst that happens is what? They get spam mail for Viagra?

    The ignorance is just overwhelming how far the truth gets bent to fit personal agendas.

    Its like saying youre personally at fault if the bank gets robbed and your safety deposit box contents stolen.

    Its just the most ridiculous assertion I've ever heard from BB users to try to bash on Apple when they had nothing to do with it.


    Furthermore, ALL that was stolen was email addresses, no other personal info. What's that worst that'll happen, a little spam? People have blown this WAY out of proportion into the stereotypical story that changes every time someone tells it to others and so on down the chain.
