This got picked up by a bunch of aggregators so maybe a lot of you have already 
seen it.  Introducing the first smart phone virus that is actually capable of 
making your life miserable, or at least your pocketbook a little lighter:


It can't infect your phone without you knowing it: you have to accept a prompt 
to install it on your phone.  But all they have to do is add a message that 
says "Nokia Security Patch #1000234 -- please install immediately to protect 
your Nokia device from the latest security threats."  It'd spread fer sure.


Nice to see the jobs and gigs getting posted here, BTW!  On the subject of 
hiring developers I thought this recent article was interesting (good for 
people preparing for interviews, too):
