So they handed out the GS3 source code a while ago, and now they want to talk about security? You can't do both.

How does publishing the source code used on the GS III disqualify Sammy from claiming the GS III is a secure device? Publishing the source code is probably the best way to prove security. AES256 is a published specification. Are you claiming that AES256 is not secure?

It just makes it that much more easy for a hacker to exploit the phone when you give him a map.

And if the map has no entry points? The reason encryption algorithms are published is to give peers in the encryption community a chance to poke holes in the algorithm. If the experts can't find a hole, there is less chance that a non-expert will find a hole.

Actually the way open source works is when an exploit is found, the community bands together to repair it quickly.

Not if Apple and Google have anything to say about it. The Feds have a secure handset initiative underway that is headed by Boeing. Boeing is building a version of Android that will meet the requirements of the secure handset initiative.

Wow that's a good one. They have come along way but still a ways to go. Besides you still have Jelly Bean coming and who knows what that holds for Android.

I'm sure Galaxy SIII sells more than all windows phone combined together including the coming windows phone 8 devices.

So Windows 8 Phone is going to improve upon the butt-ugly interface of its predecessors? I ask that question because people buy phones for a lot of reasons. If they don't find the interface interesting and appealing, they will seldom look much further.
I'm a big Windows fan dating back to Windows 386, but I have to tell you that I will never own a windows phone until the OS aesthetic is revamped into something that allows open-ended customization (like Android). This current monotone postage stamp approach is horrible: a look only a true believer could love. It makes me want to spit.

He means 80386 processors, mid to late 80s. That was around when Win 1.0 was out, IIRC.

Ah! Windows with the tiled windows that is the genus of Steve's obsession with litigation as a means to market dominance.

Every company has a right to do any kind of business as long it is not against the law. Samsung is one of them, they want to enter this kind of business. I hope tbey will be successful. We still can't say that it will fail or not, it's too early to judge. Other companies can do that also, it's how they will execute and implemented it.

Samsung can't beat the enterprise. They've got phasers and photon torpedoes and deflector shields and stuff..
