Q: Is there any way to determine if your iPhone has been compromised? A: Not for normal people. The "typical" symptoms listed on the web are unreliable. And the software tools that detect jailbreaking are easily fooled and unreliable. Q: Is there any way to "de-compromise" your iPhone? A: A factory reset (IOS reload) will fix software compromises that reside on the phone. Hardware compromises require a new phone. Network compromises require a new carrier. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greek_wiretapping_case_2004%E2%80%932005) Q: If the only way to fix things is to reload the iPhone's IOS (operating system), what's the best way to save all of your content (Apps, Photos, Music, and Contacts) and then reload it later? A: iTunes In the future, never leave the phone unattended and never loan it to anyone. And/or plan on frequent OS reloads.

http://www.eetimes.com/electronics-news/4407957/Eight-great-hacks-I-want-to-see-at-DesignWest-2013?pageNumber=1 According to the link above it doesn't seem to ridiculous anymore, especially when they hold conferences showing how to do it.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros & cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight, as are piloted airplanes? Is the technology advancing faster than we can answer the questions it poses? Panelists: Chad Sweet, Director of Engineering, Qualcomm; Yannick Levy, VP Corporate Business Development, Parrot; Jim Williams, ex-FAA drone chief; Michael Drobac, Exec. Director, Small UAV Coalition; Moderator: Junko Yoshida, Chief Int'l Correspondent, EE Times
