You're talking about running apps and I talk about accessing all phone 
peripherals and capabilities to very deep level. That's a security 
threat. You did not understand me, sorry. I don't spread FUD. I do think 
about important issues about developed product.

I would need someone to remember about that while writing phone's 
software. Only pointing that it has been already discovered in other 
product doesn't guarantee that it will appear in OpenMoko.
Maybe you should laugh at some developer that he thought about LCD 
display in Neo1973, because every phone you have seen has a display.

I think you have nothing constructive to say. Be critic to show weak 
points and propose new solutions in exchange. Sole critic only kills 
invention. Remember that.
