Final Note

Millions of Apple IDs hacked

This final note today, which as it happens comes the same day that Apple sent out invites for what’s expected to be the unveiling of the iPhone 5; it’s set for a week from tomorrow.

This morning though, we woke to news that a hacker group had leaked a million Apple IDs. IDs that in some cases contained cell phone numbers and other stuff you just don’t want out there in public. It’s part of a haul of 12 million IDs the group says it could have published.

So yeah…iPhone 5 in a week.
