iPhone Attracts Muggers, UK Lines Start and Trojan Horse is Breeding

 

British police warn iPhone customers: Scotland Yard has issued a warning to potential iPhone customers to keep the coveted handset out of sight. Concerned that the iPhone will become a target for muggings, the police are asking people not to draw attention to themselves.

 

iPhone UK Queue: Mac|Life sister site, Tech.co.uk, caught these two guys lined up (or queued as our British friends say) for the iPhone yesterday morning outside the London flagship store. We'll be checking in with our friends at MacFormat for the latest release day excitement.

 

Carphone Warehouse boss is giddy: Charles Dunstone, CEO of Carphone Warehouse, predicts Friday will be their busiest sales day ever.

 

France law may ruin iPhone party: French law forbids the sale of a product linked exclusively to a particular service with an operator. Also, the iPhone will sold unlocked so as not to violate French law. They have crepes and unlocked iPhones? France rocks!

 

Jobs controlling? No way!: Apple competitors are hoping Apple's apparent lack of openness, will hurt the company.

 

Trojans breeding: Security researchers, F-Secure, have discovered that the folks behind the malware trojan horse are tweaking it and sending out modified versions. Remember folks, never install codecs, programs or widgets from shady websites.

 

Leopard attacks notebook keyboards: First adopter Leopard woes continue with notebook keyboards freezing up. Experiencing the same issue? Tell us in the comments.

 

And finally: Real guitars are for old people.

-If our keyboards were locked, we wouldn't be able to actually post anything. Crazy Mac|Life people...

Bummer. I too have one of the original MBP's and just put a clean install of Leopard on it. It's my travel computer, and all my important data is stored on a shared network drive, so I could afford to just erase and install. I'm curious - is there a time lag between install and problems arising? I haven't seen any problems with my keyboard yet (granted, it's only been a few hours, but I would imagine that if a key wasn't going to work, I'd have known it by now...)

Running GREAT on a old ibook G4 with only 512 of ram.
NOTHING WRONG!
The only problems that I have heard on a personal lever was stupid people that wouldn't shell out the cash and get a legal version and it being buggy. (Serves you right) At least pay for the OS! Especially one as good as this.
And for those of you who didn't think 1.0 would be buggy now you know to wait for 1.1. All you have to do is be a customer of anything to know that 1.0 of everything is buggy.
Anyways loving apple and really loving LEOPARD!

...and anything else it can get it hands on.

I bought the first generation MacBook Pro in 2006. Yes, I bought the first release of 10.5, too, knowing there would be bugs. I didn't realize it would eat up my MacBook Pro AND all my free time. This release was not ready by a long shot. It would have been better if Apple had delayed it further rather than frustrate and anger their customers. Like many, I must return to Tiger.
