Ok, I really don't understand journalism, right?

Quote from the article
Also, as the researchers point out in the paper, hackers would need to first hack and jailbreak the iPhone to be able to access the Bluetooth chip and exploit it, potentially making it a bit redundant in most cases.


So the hacker needs physical access to the device & must be able to crack it & jailbreak it to "wirelessly install software while the phone is powered down". Oh, for fox sake!

Here's my debut as journo:
HEADLINE: DISCOVERY: People can drown on the moon during rain storms, even though it doesn't rain on the moon.

Abstract: If a person stationed on the moon sticks their head in a bucket of water for long enough, while a rainstorm is occurring on the Earth, the person may indeed drown. Roll eyes | :rolleyes:
