John Gruber says iOS is an insecure platform
Speaking about Apple’s upcoming deprecation of iOS’ UDID (the mechanism by which applications can identify users devices (I was wrong about that) uniquely), John Gruber has this to say:
My guess: Apple is doing this so they can further promote iOS as a secure and privacy-protecting platform.
Translation: All the versions of iOS released up until today are not secure and don’t protect privacy.
Gruber then can’t help some drive-by bashing:
What are the odds that Google would ever block Android developers from accessing unique device IDs?
100%, since Android has never allowed such unique user identification. Since version 1.0.
