iPhone bug keeps Safari humming, and your costs running up…

…well, only if you’re not on the AT&T not-always-3G network in the US!

AppleSpot, of Estonia, has discovered a bug in the iPhone Safari that could keep Safari running in the background if you open a motion-jpeg file, and then close iPhone Safari.

I am shocked, shocked!

Who would have thunk that Apple could release shoddy software? Apart from me, that is.

And for those who think I’m jealous because I cannot get the iPhone in my neighborhood, you’re right.

Get an Android, dude. Oh, don't trust Google. Sucks to be you. :-)

By the way, you need to make that original Mobilecrunch URL absolute.

The sad thing here is this bug exists mostly because AAPL only allows Safari and a few other "special" apps to run in background, so users are surprised when it does.

Android users know *all* their apps can multitask...

@MaggieL: So far, Android has not shown anything, so why the hype?

Until I see and feel for myself, I cannot take that ride.

Furthermore, I cannot shake the feeling that Google is doing some sh*t with my behavior, targeting some stupid ads at me.
