If they’re so smart, how come they keep getting lost?  After all, they have trackingtechnology in them — even if it’s just cell tower information …

The iPhone is the market leader, but collectively the Android models are nowoutselling the iPhone.  The Android open source system has facilitated thedeployment of a massive number of malware applications.  To counter these vermina number of anti-virus anti-malware applications have been developed for theandroid.  For the iPhone, only approved apps are allowed for sale (there are a fewunapproved apps, but not many).
