Agreed. But that's a review of the Verizon 4, not the original 4. Their article on the IP4 antenna issue was earlier, and quite well reasoned, pointing out that indeed it could be somewhat detuned by bridging but that overall it performed much better than the 3GS. And that design did persist unchanged for several years.http://www.anandtech.com/show/3794/the-iphone-4-review/2
 Entirely logical, but logic and trolling are mutually incompatible.
 It is primarily services (daemons) such as DHCP that call bash internally that are likely to be vulnerable. DHCP input should be sanitized, but then so should any daemon input string. Historically that has not always been the default. However, that's also the reason that most user OSX installations should be safe - they are not running external service daemons. Servers, such as websites, mail relays, DHCP, and other open ports etc., would presumably be the immediate concern.
 Because he's trolling, of course.
 It's pretty clear from reading comments around the internet that there is a deluded minority in the US who both believe and wish that to be true. The mindset has likely always existed, but never had much of a vehicle for expression.
Sure, but don't forget that the context was the (correct) observation that all phones operating on GHz frequencies are affected by how they are held, and always have been. The IP4 was no different. The same is true of other RF communication devices - even those with discrete antennas. Jobs was not saying that the IP4 was immune, just that its performance was well up to industry standards. The goal was, and no doubt continues to be, to minimize that effect, so of course...
Correctly or not, but probably reasonably, apps such as that are regarded as trusted.
Yes, I should have guessed that the answer implied by my response would be totally beyond you. Never mind.
What were the new protocols supported by the 5S?
They change the antennas with virtually every iteration. 4S used a new double antenna design for faster data rates and for compatibility with HSDPA. The assertion that the changes were to cure a real problem with the 4 was unsupported as far as I can recall.
