Most of the news on the web today pertains to Apple's announcement of the 3G iPhone, but there are a few other interesting tidbits worth heckling:
- Novell's GroupWise Messenger was found to contain a "moderately critical" security flaw, "which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a vulnerable system." It's unclear that anyone was affected. I'll just leave it at that. :-)
- Apple has apparently cut off a primary source of revenue by forcing 3G iPhone buyers into two-year contracts and in-store activation. No more home activation via iTunes may mean less of a gray market for unlocked iPhones. I'm still planning to unlock mine, however, so that I can use it in Europe without paying ruinous roaming charges.
- Meanwhile, open-source development tools apparently spell the death knell for proprietary development tools. Sorry about that.
More to come later today.
