Apple So, Anonymous, under the guise of its AntiSec campaign, has hacked an Apple server, got access to 27 administrator usernames and passwords, and put them on Pastebin. Is it time to panic? Is it time to point and laugh at Apple? Is it time to stop using iTunes? Not really - this is a small hack that will cause little to no damage.

OSNews went from Apple, Apple, Apple (iPhone, fights on our freedom, iPad), to cell phones, cell phones, cell phones (Nokia selling out to Microsoft, lots of bitch-fighting between companies over patents, etc.), to hacking, hacking, hacking (Anonymous here, LulzSec there). And now back to Apple... getting hacked. Yay. Whoopty damn do, who cares? Seriously, the news stories on this site are getting incredibly boring to the point where I just don't give a damn any more.

Where did all the interesting articles go?

UZ64,

Yea, today there is so much hype over stupid devices I can't stand it either.

Everyone says that computing moves fast, but all I see is a bunch of tech companies playing monkey in the middle with us. They go back and forth between the same ideas for decades and then treat them like new each time. Computing breakthroughs are a whole lot more innovative the first time round. There were certainly more opportunities then. Today a handful of dominant companies get all the credit and attention.

You do know you are free not to read OSNews, right? ;) .

You could also submit articles yourself, of course.

I think it's okay to complain. It's just like if you don't like how your country is being governed, it a cop-out to say "if you don't like it, why don't you move to [insert enemy country here]."

However, we can only report on what's going on in tech today. If what's mostly happening is mobile, or apple, or hacks, then that's what we'll talk about. Of course, we rely on our readers to draw our attention to other topics. See that "submit news" link in the upper right hand corner of the screen? Use it!

Oh, I know. And that will be the next step if OSNews articles continue to be the same pointless crap. I've noticed the site always seems to go through ups and downs when it comes to articles, but this time the downs are just not going away. Therefore the complaining... and if this trend continues... I'm outta here. It seems that even Slashdot is more worthy of reading these days. And for the longest time, OSNews was constantly putting up articles of actual interest.

Yeah, I know, I know... who cares. Just another viewer gone.

How often does news speicfically about OSes come out, do you think? If you're looking for the latest (boring) news on advancements in the Linux kernel, there's a mailing list for that.
