Rather than posting misinformed guesses, why don't you just browse the developer docs? How it works is spelled out in black and white.   It's simple JSON text and a few images, with a code to tie it to a developer account (and a code to tie it to a specific user). It's also digitally signed. There may be a way to hack it, but it isn't easy.   All Passbook does is act as a dumb conduit. It displays whatever the 3rd party company (Starbucks, etc.) tells it to, as...
Actually, that's incorrect.   Passbook has the ability, through new guaranteed-delivery push notifications, to update your card in real-time (depending on Starbucks' servers).   Any and every field can be updated instantly.   Remember how they talked about updating your boarding gate in realtime at the airport? That's what this is about.   So you have nothing to worry about. Passes are very dynamic. 
Thank you, AppleInsider, for putting space between your screenshots!
Yes, thanks. It looks like they started putting a few pixels' space in the merged images in the maps article today.Yay!
Dear AppleInsider:   When you're posting screen shots, please put some white space between different screen shots so that it's clear that you're posting two portrait screen shots side by side as opposed to one landscape screen shot.   Sure, you could study the screen shots and eventually figure out that there are two sets of navigation bars on the bottom (meaning that it's two portrait screenshots side by side). But, really, you'd be doing your readers a favor if...
You're taking video conferencing entirely too literally.   It's just a video stream. Any video stream. Ever hear of a tv commercial? It's a video stream. Pictures, graphics, voiceover. Selling you something.   A pre-recorded voice chat, if you will. Much like a pre-recorded telemarketer over the phone.
Wow, really?The only one?You need to have a wider perspective.Shaun UK makes some great points.
This isn't about jail breaking, is it? This is to convince corporations and people that--if you don't jailbreak your device--it will remain secure and virus free. All bets are off if you jailbreak.
Wasn't the rumor back in October last year that the new iPhone 5 design had to be scrapped at the last minute and that's why we had the iPhone 4S? Remember the cases that were actually produced for the new, thin but slightly wider form factor (basically fitting a 4" screen on a very slightly stretched iPhone 4 structure)? Remember the mockups? The wedge/teardrop shape? That's what it'll be. Why would they change it? They won't. Someone please relink those mockup images...
Yes, I agree.   This won't happen overnight. And if it never happens (the re-educating of American consumers about what 'value' really means), it won't be his fault, but the fault of people who expect "FREE" and "CHEAP" and "COUPONS" to be the answer to their prayers. What will be his fault is his expectation that he, alone, could change the consumer mindset.   I have to say, though, that their web site and iPhone/iPad "app" (if you can call it that) are complete crap.
