Duke University vs. iPhone

I keep seeing wire service stories about iPhones supposedly being responsible for bringing down Duke University’s campus-wide Wi-Fi network, but I have yet to see a single technical explanation for how this might be possible. Why aren’t iPhones bringing down anyone else’s network, if they’re to blame?

Update: This NetworkWorld article has some additional details, but it’s still far short of a complete explanation. (Thanks to Dan Kurtz.)
