Level playing field?

Manton Reece: "Except there's one pretty significant problem, especially on the iPhone. Apple cheats." - For now, I'm fine with Apple "cheating." I can understand why they'd be so cautious about allowing applications to run in the background. Have you ever noticed how many background tasks(services) run in your installation of Windows? The answer is, a lot, and most people probably don't even know they're running. This was a great mechanism for the malware/spyware folks to leverage. I'm not saying an iPhone is vulnerable, but I could see it slowing down, becoming less responsive, if you had a bunch of tasks running in the background.
