It doesn't - you can't blame the road companies for 
accidents provided they did a reasonable job maintaining and 
marking them.

IP is just a transport. What's in the payload and how the 
device interacts with it is beyond IP's scope in terms of 
personal or corporate security.

If you want a smartphone, buy a firewall for it.

If you want the (so-called) protection of NAT44, it'll cost 
your operator millions of $$ to install, will kill the 
service and you'll end up paying double or triple so they 
can recover their investments.
