 The important thing is not the language but the IDE and API on which the Apps is based on. Before .NET, Microsoft had no unified and modern IDE, .NET was a created in reaction of Objective-C and Xcode IDE. Because .NET was rushed Microsoft has screwed their first 4 versions of .NET, making every iteration of .NET binary incompatible with each other, forcing every Windows users to keeps multiple version of .NET runtime environment up to date.  Still today many own...
 You know even Microsoft own apps haven't fully switch to .net and still stuck with old and depreciated win32 and dcom runtimes, more than 10 years after introducing .net and C#.  Every major OS has many runtime API with different programming language associated to each, Android has multiple language and IDE.   Objective-C has many historical shortcomings bind to his C derivative, Apple wanted to solve syntax issue will having a much more modern and simplify language...
 The only way to resolve security issue based on social engineering like the one exposed in this article are to eliminate the user idiocy constant from the equation, which is pretty much impossible. 
No wonder Apple cloud is not compromised in the scheme, social engineering is the mother of all hacking and Fishing is a new form of Social engineering.  I constantly receive fishing email from fake Apple services asking me to log in my AppleID account, no wonder someone somewhere being catch.    Here is my word of wisdom: never click on a link within a email to log in any online services.
 Yes I agree,  Intel SoC will go better overtime, but Apple and other ARM partenaire won't sit on their hands waiting for Intel to pass them. My point is a 28nm ARM SoC is more efficient than any current Intel SoC, and  going 14nm won't change the game. Next gen of ARM SoC will be 22 or 14nm and retain its efficiency edge over the overweight Pentium legacy architecture.  BTW have you ever heard about PWRficient and P.A Semi?  I'm not forgetting anything, like you said...
 I case you've missed it, here is a quote from Anandtech review: 
 Can't say the Tegra 4 shines in terms of battery life, BTW what is that PRISM things needed for having average battery life? Here is more disastrous Tegra Note graph from Anandtech:  
 You see ARM Soc and Intel SoC aren't in the same league, ARM SoC are design to runs on battery powered platform ever since his born more than 20 years ago.  Every things in the A7 and every ARM SoC are design with power preservation and efficiency in mind. Where intel best mobile SoC TDP are above 4 watts, the Ax series TDP target is around 1 watt.  The A7 at 28nm already beats any current 14nm Intel chips on performance per watts, the next A8 will surely be a 22nm fab...
 ARM SoC are already more efficient and cheaper to produce than Intel CPU with worst fab process  This is a game Intel can't win that way, any fab process avantages Intel will develop can be eventually apply to ARM SoC. Nvidia is really shy about giving the TDP specs of their Tegra CPU and since 4 generations later, near no phones and only a handful of tablets using Tegra processors have been ever produce, It proves they don't meet most mfg expectations. 
 True, no ARM cpu will ever catch Intel on raw performance because they don't play with the same basic rules.   But Its also true, Intel will never catch ARM on efficiency or performance per watt.  Same applies to overhyped Nvidia Tegra, will having a more powerful graphics processor than Imagination PowerVR used by Apple, they can't compete on the efficiency level.
