Identity thieves can ruin just about anyone's day with little info. It's one of my greatest fears in using today's technology. I'll tell you one thing, I sure don't want to do my banking online. Bank of America keeps trying to encourage me to go "paperless" and tell me how secure their system is, while they get hacked every other month. I keep as little sensitive info on my PC as possible, though in today's world you need a credit/debit card for online purchases and some other info to interact with gov't agencies. I use the standard Windows OS, firewall and antivirus, but short of that I don't use anymore protection, because it can actually be a redflag to hackers. They're interested in what someones hiding, when there's a lot of locks and blocks being used.
I bet Hollywood is less impressed with Apple software...lol
Einstein, "science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind."
Also notice I didn't say no one cared about privacy in the sterling case. I suggested the fervor, anger, and focus on it was significantly less. Which it absolutley is. I recognize you were one of the people I saw who seemingly did condemn that aspect a bit more than just as a casual aside.
If one is suggesting they're upset about PRIVACY, then BOTH cases should have gotten a good bit of crusading. But it isn't, because it's not about privacy. Privacy is just a nice buzzwork to add onto this to sound good.
The reality is that the "Genie" in the Sterling case was viewed as "bad" and the "Genie" in this case isn't just viewed as good but is viewed as something that we need some social agenda to promote in the name of combatting sexism (see Eco's desprate need to insinuate that somehow I think these women are "sluts").
I've had no issue with people I've seen jumping online complaining about the sexism angles of this. My issue is with some that I've seen making this out as a giant PRIVACY issue, which is utter bull**** because it's clear they don't care about peoples privacy, they simply care about privacy for things they agree with.
"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
I do not know the law (is it actually "hacking" if they just guess a password after a few hundred thousand tries?) - but it seems illegal to me.
But I will say anyone who posts suggestive photos and such online needs a lesson in common sense.
If I make an online purchase, I EXPECT my billing information to be kept private, even if it is stored online.
Those of you who are blaming J-Law for uploading nude photos to a secure server are basically telling me that I should never make another purchase online.
Again, these folks are in the business of leading public lives. They KNOW everything they do online can be exposed to the public. Their management knows.
Btw, there's a simple setting in the iPhones that sends all saved content to the iCloud by default. It can be turned off. A stupid default I know, but get used to it if you're going to use Apple products.
