Is Android less secure than iPhone? Um, no.

Trend Micro’s self-serving 'security through obscurity' claim about Android lacking security flies in the face of reality.

By Katherine Noyes, PC World |  Personal Tech, Android, iPhone

Would companies far and wide be placing increasing trust in open source applications, and would this country's Departments of Defense and Homeland Security be among the U.S. government's biggest users of open source technology, if openness made technology less secure? I don't think so.

It was a nice try, Trend Micro--all's fair in love and marketing, right? But next time, it might be a good idea to pay attention to the facts, too.
