Are iphones sharing our valuable information
“For long Apple devices have been thought of trusted devices” We carry our iphone devices around all the time, but have we ever imagined that our mobile device can leak valuable information to anyone, who cares to get that information.

Much needed improvements for Engadget apps
Hello dear Engadget!

Running iOS apps on a desktop OS.
My parents have a lot of TV channels. Their cable provider have an iPad / iPhone app, which allows them to watch almost all of the channels on their iPad or iPhone. Unfortunately it's not possible to watch these channels on a laptop.
Is it possible to run iOS apps on a desktop OS? (OS X, windows or linux)
