Can't tell you how many people I know who use Samsung & Windows who pooh-pooh the idea of a phishing-botnet-malware attack on their equipment. I've almost given up talking about it except in a new business startup where some people from "corporate America" think Windows is the only way to get things done.
As if "metal" is going to change a person's mind in picking a safe, secure, integrated ecosystem, curated App smartphone??? Given Samsungss warnings to 'analysts', & Woz's rejection of their Galaxy Gear watch, I don't think Apple has anything to fear.
gwydion; I think the overview on Android exploits is here: http://www.cio.com/article/748604/6_Out_of_10_Android_Apps_a_Security_Concern
Banking Malware Source:  http://www.technologyreview.com/graphiti/528306/malware-on-the-move/   Indeed as the other commenter noted, it may be phishing attacks are significant.   However, there are reportedly huge % of Android marketplace apps infected with malware designed to do keylogging.   Hence, phishing is hardly the only way Android users get screwed over because of a lack of a controlled and mediated app marketplace.
Meanwhile, in the real world, banking theft malware has tripled in 6 months. Good luck Google for promoting something so insecure your customers could loose more in one hack that it cost them to buy your phone!
I call BS. You can't do spectroscopic analysis to tell just what is in drinks and know it is accurate unless you can do calibration. I wouldn't be surprised to find out you need to tell it that you are drinking a "diet Coke" for it to give any half-way decent results.
Just because it is possible to do something "automatically" does not mean we should do it.
One thing I know for sure is Apple is not going to make crap products.
Comparing the image to the size of trees on the shore, the "Nessie" would have to be 100 feet long. Not possible.
Some people always want to return to the past success. Then others write about it as if it is ordained that past success is ordained to be the religious path to a better future. If anything has been seen in the world of commerce, it is that you can not stand still and fake, fear or fumble change in the face of competitors, as change is inevitable. Tim Cook is a realist and understands this change. You don't follow the past, you lead.
