Charlie Miller is very well known to Apple and in the wider security community - this isn't an attempt to gain notoriety as all the fanbois seem to think. As for the question of why he submitted it to the app store - how else could he test that his exploit could bypass the code signing component of the app store?
This is just a case of Apple over reacting (probably by a low level app store QA staff member). They will back down and let him back in when the noise dies down. If they don't they are stupider than they currently appear.
are how the cool kids spearphish these days.
Some maths for you
..so you don't put your foot any further down your throat.
These quotes come straight from the article you so kindly referenced.
"the Bruce Highway got $1.4 billion in federal funding for upgrades (over 5 years)...The Pacific Highway, by comparison, received a total of $2.3 billion over five years, including $950 million from the NSW Government."
Now I know the journalist from news.com.au was a little tricky here, but if we subtract the $950 million the NSW government contributed from the $2.3 billion figure quoted we get $1.35 billion. It seems that the Federal government actually chipped in more cash for QLD than it did from NSW. Ouch.
"While an average $259,000 was spent per kilometre each year on the Bruce, a whopping $540,000 a kilometre was spent on the Pacific."
Now you claim that "500k less per kilometre" is spent in QLD. But $540,000 minus $259,000 = $281,000. It seems your maths has let you down here. If you look back to the previous quote you will note that the Federal Goverment paid more to QLD than NSW, so this shortfall must stem from your State Government.
Your first link is saying that the Federal Government has only paid for one third of the total costs of the project (that isn't enough for you it seems). Your second link shows that the Federal Government paid almost equal amounts to NSW and QLD to fund the Pacific Highway, but your state contributed very little in ongoing costs compared the the NSW Government...
Both your examples highlight how your problem lies with your State Government not spending enough on roads. There is no obligation for the Federal Government to pay for your roads but as you have so expertly shown, they have contributed significantly. If you want to see a lack of Federal spending on state infrastructure, come to WA.
This is a classic strawman argument, QLD state spending on roads != Federal spending on communications.
You don't understand our political system
Roads and power lines are not funded by federal money, they are paid for with state and even local council funds. The NBN is a federal project using everyone's tax dollars to fund a project that benefits everyone.
Maybe before you rant about things you should actually try to understand them.
Are you people stupid
or can't you read properly?
The subscription model is to lease the hardware, the $300+ price tag is to buy the hardware.

Sony never emailed me. I call bullshit on them emailing the majority of their 77 million users.
We already have a solution to this
Its called public key cryptography. The problem is most people are too dumb to use it and websites don't implement it.
Also to the windoze user with the biometric device. How in god's name does this protect you from having dildomall.com's database compromised and your password revealed?
Not entirely accurate
Considering there were two humans and one machine it is a bit unfair to measure humanity against the machine and only factor in the score of one human. If you combine their scores and increase the final jeopardy wager of Ken Jennings to 19K then things get a lot closer (although the machine still wins).
