    what the **** does Anthony Weiner have to do with anything? If these women sent you a sext message, you might have a point

    This kind of hacking isn't some new enterprise. It's been around as long as digital photography has been (or at least as long as the technology has been readily available). Yeah, the hackers are bad guys in this but the "victims" are just plain idiots.
    I agree, the celebrities should definitely be more aware of how today's technology operates, or at least hire experts to help them secure their digital lives, but these are not tech savvy or even common sense individuals as a rule.

    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.

In this case, the genie is some tits. Kinda a whole different level of thing. If you look at two different events and wonder why they are treated somewhat differently, the problem might be with you.
    But that's fine if your complaints...in EITHER case...is about the GENIE.

    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.

    Private between him and the recipient. And are you seriously saying Upton and the others took these photos with a communication device and never shared them electronically with anyone? She just saved them for ****s and giggles? These are show off pics in most cases and were shared with friends.

    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.

    Apparently I was not clear. The idea is that in the Sterling case, the genie was so massive and drew so much attention that how the genie got out was hugely overshadowed. That is not to say that the how is not important. If I stub my toe at the top of the stairs, it sucks. If I stub my toe at the top of the stairs and it causes me to fall over down the stairs and I break my back, stubbing my toe still sucks, but it isn't the focus of my complaints.

    Obviously that's the point, NOT a secured server and you may wish to rethink making purchases online. I purchase online, but I don't let them keep my CC info and I keep track.

    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.

    I expect my online credit card information to be private too. That being said, I have ONE card I use just for online purchases because although I expect privacy I also understand that such privacy can be compromised.
