Re: Rotten apple
> Does it have a filesystem area that all apps can randomly write crap into? No. Each app is sensibly sandboxed,
I've always been in two minds about this.
While I understand the sandboxing from a security perspective, it has always rubbed me the wrong way.
The way I see it as me, a user (as opposed to as an IT person thinking security) is that it is an app claiming a file. That is, it is the apps file, because only that app can open, or even see, that file (unless you go through some transferring stuff - migrating it to a computer, then sucking it back into another apps folder - and I hate that term too, its not a folder, it is a directory!).
But that file, say resume.doc, or photo1.jpg, is my file, not the apps file. Therefore I choose which app, at what time, can access that file, not Apple, not iOS.
