On Friday, Jay Freeman announced on Twitter that he exploited a known vulnerability and subsequently achieved root access to his developer-model of Google Glass – Google’s highly anticipated, wearable, head-mounted computer.

Over the weekend, a pair of hackers successfully installed Apple’s previously iPhone 4S-exclusive voice assistant service, Siri, onto an iPhone 4 and fourth-generation iPod Touch. The hack works on jailbroken iOS devices.

It wasn’t long ago – just a month in fact – that Apple’s iOS mobile operating system was being called the ‘Most secure’ OS.
