You think an adversary is going to go frontal (which is /exactly/ what
Brand X marketing has fed you), when there are /plenty/ of weak links by
side channels.

I'm not ever saying that encryption isn't a good thing (as it makes frontal
attacks more expensive); what I'm saying is the obvious fact that /all/
consumer grade mobile phones suffer from the same set of weakest links.

So, even as Brand X marketing makes its admittedly gullible and very loyal
and trusting customer base /feel/ safe, they're actually /not/ safe, just
as the little boy feels safe when his mom tells him that closing the closet
door will keep the monsters out.
