Fun with bugs
This story should be subtitled "Crashing an allegedly uncrashable OS."  The only other OS crash that would bring out the Windows fanbois to gloat would be a bug that wipes clean a Linux based OS.

Re: Fun with bugs
I think it is bad enough for Apple to have this kind of a setback because Apple is a highly valued brand and now people are going to think twice and refer to Apple as "the brand that can be hacked by a message". Apple needs to sort it out double time.

@SunithaT- Most of apple users are strong apple believers, I think they would give Apple a chance to fix their issues before moving to another brand.

@asksqn: I actually had the same thought while going through the blog. The Apple fanboys have forever made fun of how unstable Windows is and how stupid bugs like these can cause malfunctioning. It's time to reply back to them about how iOS isn't as secure as it is assumed to be.

@tzubair – I still feel compared to Windows, Apple still has very few bugs. Windows usually have versions released for users to test and send crash reports.

As a user why would I go for such cumbersome steps. Its good they have identified it and accepted it. They should rollout the update for it soon.

The reason Steve switched to Unix was Unix almost can't be crashed. I have never seen kernal panic (unless there is a hardware problem). 

Congrats to Apple.

I am glad that Apple is communicating this to their users without just ignoring them while they work on a fix.
