Let the iPhone Hacking Begin

You heard it here first Someone will be running unapproved apps on the iPhone by the end of July. Wired posted a call to arms and this guy is looking for help with USB drivers. Good fun. Unless of course Apple actually went out and hired some real security gurus to render the hardware tamper proof and harden the OS. Doubtful. No tamper resistant hardware here...nice teardown.

Side note - I only saw one example of a marketing ploy by a security vendor to cash in on iPhone hype: ISS stating the obvious [iPhone hype] "will make the iPhone a definite target"
