    Spot on. But then again celebrities arent known for their brains. Emails are extremely unsecured and can be intercepted without encryption just as cloud files.

But as has already been said - if a hacker wants to get information they will. It's up to us, the users, to inform ourselves, to regulate our expectations, and to not to trust any information we would not want shown to everyone we know, on anything which has an internet connection.
    Well, no. We(collective we, referring to us as a country, and in this case law enforcement) could do a much better job going after and punishing hackers. Unfortunately, it would cost alot of money. I think it would be money well spent, but spending on something that will have an invisible effect is something that is just not politically going to happen right now.

    Personally...I'm all for the death penalty for hackers (and I dont even automatically go for the death sentence for murderers).
    Hey, even though we have the NSA's data center, we now have protections against law enforcement from unnecessarily snooping into your phone. It's now a somewhat protected device.

    Except that hasn't been the case since mankind began writing things down. The only thing that has perpetuated that illusion was that previous media were not that long-lasting. That letter you wrote to your penpal was likely to eventually be trashed and unrecoverable.

    Having worked in the past with converted hackers - they see better security and higher punishment as a challenge to get away with it. Even if we could affect hackers in the US, we could do little to international hackers - China and Russia being some of the best right now. I see a war on hackers similarly to the war on drugs - it would just make it that much more enticing.

    Thats not a deterrent if you store stuff on cloud storage. The NSA has probably got nude photos of everybody who took nudes of themselves at one time or another.

    Yes, but that's kind of the point. There's a lot of that hyperbole going around, at least from what I've said, in the "name" of privacy. Take this article, which is largely where the talking points are being born from as it's been linked from multiple different activist sites and blogs:

    If you deliberately seek out any of these images, you are directly participating in the violation not just of numerous women's privacy but also of their bodies.
    The people sharing these images are perpetuating an ongoing assault. The people gleefully looking at them are witnessing and enjoying an ongoing assault
    To have those moments stolen and broadcast to the world is an egregious act of psychic violence, which constitutes a form of assault.
    (SOURCE)

    If having private things not meant for the public consumption wrongfully leaked to the public to be experienced over and over again is an "assault" or "psychic violence" then such a thing isn't like a "stubbed toe". You're suggest that it's on par with a CRIME, and not just the HACKING but the releasing and then the subsequent viewing by ANYONE ELSE. And regardless of what anyone may've thought about Sterling, what he did was not a CRIME. If one TRULY believes that such an invasion of privacy is so CRIMINAL then "but there were other issues with sterling" just doens't pass muster. And this all goes back to my basic statement, that this concern for "privacy" by some is a farce...it's bull****...it's something that sounds good to plop on top of the true agenda which is hammering people over the head repeatedly about "rape culture" or various feminist ideals.
