Samsung phones can be reset by clicking a link Posted on Tuesday, September 25th, 2012 at 9:37 am. PT Written by Jim Dalrymple Click a link and your phone resets. Perfect, open wins. Cameron Bales Previously Rick-rolling was the worst/funniest thing that could happen when you click a link. http://www.johncblandii.com John C. Bland II Open has nothing to do with it but I’m sure you know that. kibbles the statement is a counter point to the equally silly notion that open is better simply by being…open. Lukas Actually, “open” is better. On my Nexus 7, I can toggle a switch that lets me install apps from outside of the Play Store. I can install a different OS. I can develop for the device without paying 100 bucks for the privilege. My iPhone can’t do any of these things, and I really wish it could. You may say that you don’t care about these things, but you can’t claim that they’re not advantages. Matt W They should patent that. tylernol they should add s-reset to the feature list in that new ad campaign of theirs. http://twitter.com/Listrade Carl Anders This is a massive overreaction, there’s an OS update on its way to rectify the problem and users can just update their…oh. http://twitter.com/shycophante Shyco Phante Apple implemented a similar feature in an earlier version of iOS. So this really is just Samsung copying again! Lukas The iPhone has had a number of similar “visit a web page to get hacked” security issues. Just saying, this has (once again) nothing to do with “open”.
