Iam full. Yummy. Oh No I feel sick now that must have been some bad spam..


I find it supper funny that spammers seriously post some of the randomize crap ever. I mean some times they make a post and talk about having the best lasers yet you click on the link and the link brings you to T-shirts and Underwear.



Foulmist i would remove the quote from your post above of the spam. I clicked on it and my Norton security system came up with a Threat Warning.

I click on suspicious stuff with my iPad. I figure it is fairly virus proof right now.

With that all said, I'm going to post a "spammy" link I stumbled on...

LM3410
Taobao agent New Seung Electronics LM3410XQMFX LM3410YQMFX on {the store a lot of selling} - BuyChina.com

I wouldn't go building drivers for sale with those, but someone might want to test and see if they work, they are CHEAP!

EDIT: Well, maybe not. They stack shipping so they end up at $1 each, not worth it when you can find them on sale for $2.50 from reputable dealers.

Oh gosh wow!

That thinking was dispensed with a while back. Quite far from being "virus-proof", Apple is generally considered to be the worst of the bunch these days.

You have to forget those John Hodgeman commercials and Apple's historical ribbing of Microsoft for security vulnerabilities. The reality has flipped - strongly.

Kaspersky says Apple is 10 years behind Microsoft on security:
Kaspersky claims Apple is '10 years behind Microsoft' on security | The Verge

Sophos says Apple has its "head in the sand" and is engaging a "culture of denial" about all the security vulnerabilities on their platforms:
Apple needs wakeup call on security | ZDNet

Even Apple's web services are just repeatedly being hacked, and having one obvious and avoidable vulnerability after another showcased. As recently as this weekend there was major headline news about Apple's crappy security leading to journalists loosing data, and having other non-Apple accounts compromised because of Apple's flaws:
BBC News - US journalist suffers hack attack via Apple iCloud

Apple is totally security-ignorant. Unfortunately, they're convinced many of their users to be also!

I don't own any apple pc's. I'm not a fan. But I have yet to see any sign of iPads being vulnerable to viruses.

For one thing, they don't do flash or java or most of the things that are major security holes to begin with and on top of that apple basically puts the iOS devices in a bit of a sandbox so they aren't easily hacked into if they aren't jail broken. Which mine aren't.

I'll let you know when I get my first virus on one.

Meanwhile I have to go clean that Fake antivirus virus off my father-in-law's computer for the third time this year!

Maybe you can show me some examples of iPads getting viruses?

You can google for iOS viruses, and you'll find all sorts of them being reported, both spreading via the web, and via App Store programs that actually got approved by Apple.

It's funny actually, a google for iOS Virus brings up lots of viruses, contrasted by an article from Apple explaining that iDevices don't need virus scanners, because they can't get viruses

I'm aware of only a few specific problems that IOS devices have had.

1) PDF exploit: This was used far more for the good of the jail breaking community then any malious activity. Actually I'm not sure there were any real world attacks on this. This was actually plugged by the dev team behind the jailbreak faster then apple but they did eventually fix the issue.

2). SSH default password attack: Users that jailbreak their devices routinely install an OpenSSH package. This package has a default password that is VERY WELL known on the Internet. In theory this could be a serious issue since if you have a data connection, you have an IP address that hackers can connect to. However the worst I've heard of is user's getting Rick Rolled with this one. I always login and change this as one of my first steps after jail breaking.

3) Several malware apps have made it by apple and into the app store. Those that we know about are quickly pulled. This is by far the worst offender for IOS and I do worry about the ones that may be out there undiscovered. I still believe this is far fewer then andriod users have to contend with, but it's still a very serious issue.

I'm not at all saying that apple devices are a magic bullet, but I do tend to do the same things with suspious links.

@RHD: all the links you provided with the exception of one apply to apple computers not so much IOS devices. In the one IOS device issue, the hackers used social engineering. Still a very real issue and no one should take security lightly.

As iPhones and iPads continue to sell in huge numbers, more hackers will very likely see more "bang for the buck", in developing exploits for them.

Sorry grammar and spelling go right out the door when typing on an iPad.

Yeah, I think you may have a grudge against apple RHD. Like I said, I'm no fanboy, and don't own a single pc product by them. But I love my iPad and iPhone. (although iPhone needs to start treading water faster as android has caught and passed them in some areas.)

I think eventually apples attitude will do them in, they think they know best and we are all idiots. They hit it so far out of the park with the iPhones that it took 4+ years for anyone to catch up, but now they seem to think that because of that well-orchestrated success, that they can dictate what we want and I think they will eventually be left behind.

That said, right now the iPad is an awesome device. I'm sure that android has some tablets that are similar, but I own hundreds of apps, most of which immediately installed for free on my iPad. And I have yet to see any virus that has infected any iPad or iPhone that wasn't jail broken.

Getting back to the discussion, I can say with utter confidence that I use my iPad as a great way to poke around for land mines (metaphorically) that would be a disaster to my PC.

I have had viruses blast right past all of my anti-virus security on my pc before that required tedious amounts of effort to remove. If I had an apple PC I would be cautious, but with iPad and iPhone I am safe in saying that I can click on anything without concern.

Even I'd you could find some exotic example of a virus that infected an unjailbroken iPad or iPhone in the news, you would still be dealing with an anecdotal story compared to the extreme unlikelihood of me meeting up with anything that could infect my iPad. That may change, but right now I am very safe on the Internet with my iPad.

(Each of the resistors above you can get on digikey in 1/3W 0805 in 1 part quantity for $0.35 from the Susumu manufacturer)

This driver is 9.5mm x 13.8mm.

RHD and Benmw are, for the lack of a better word, just awesome for releasing the specs and schematics as open source! This is an amazing deed, and an amazing opportunity for beginners to try their hand at electrical engineering!

One thing I wanted to note though, the notation of the set resistors was a bit confusing. And took me some time to figure out that, the numbers were actually a part of a longer "manufacturer part number" and not the "actual" resistance. For example R30 is not 30Ohm but 0.3Ohm
