Sneaky iPhone Headline Riles the Internet

 

Robert Palmer of TUAW found a headline from ZDNet Australia that might be overreaching and guilty of being link bait.

 

The offending headline is, "Photos: iPhone running Windows XP." Sounds exciting right? Right now you're thinking to yourself, "Oh my God, they ported Windows to the iPhone. It's a sign of the coming apocalypse!"

 

Now before you start praying to your deity of choice, there is a bit information you need to know. The iPhone in question is actually part of a demo of Citrix's thin client technology's capacity for remote desktop at the Citrix Application Delivery Conference in Melbourne. Citrix is controlling a Windows machine with the iPhone over Wi-Fi.

 

Not exactly an iPhone running Windows.

 

So what do you think? Is ZDNet Australia guilty of a link bait headline?

"Not exactly an iPhone running Windows."

But so damn cool. Controlling a computer remotely from the iPhone would be awesome. Hell, I think it's great that I can even run OpenSSH on mine.
