Troy Hunt on how iOS developers are screwing their users:
Developers can get away with more sloppy or sneaky practices in mobile apps as the execution is usually further out of view.
You can smack the user with a massive asynchronous download as their attention is on other content; but it kills their data plan.
You can track their moves across entirely autonomous apps; but it erodes their privacy.
And most importantly to me, you can jeopardise their security without their noticing; but the potential ramifications are severe.
We live in interesting times.
