Speaking of Hackathons.. How about the Pwn2Own Event in Amsterdam? I read RIM sponsored it but I never heard how BB OS7 did, if it "survived" the longest (or not). Can anyone tell me more?


iPhone got hacked and S3 got hacked via NFC. The guy that hacked the iPhone claims it's still the most secure phone and they did it to show that the most secure phone could be hacked.

Take what you want from that story :)


IPhone isn't that secure. As far as I know, blackberry is. But we don't have any clue or knowledge if it was hackable or not.


Very well written, DJ. If I were a Developer, I'd be on my way to sign up !



Glad to see you fixed the typo :)
