Top three mobile application threats

The UK's Internet trade group - ISPA - has announced the finalists for its annual industry awards.

Of course, while those in the industry are on tenterhooks to find out who is the "best ISP", the "serious" awards have been eclipsed by the now infamous gong for the "Internet Villain" award.

Last month, ISPA named Net-savvy MP Derek Wyatt, as one of those up for the title, along with the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), the Broadband Stakeholders' Group, the Home Office and Verisign.

Anyhow, for those keen to brag "my ISP's better than yours", here's a selection of categories and nominees.
