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.

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 yes, of course it's fine to complain - I just meant that nobody is forcing you to read things you may not like.

And for the rest... Well, there have always been certain waves in tech reporting. Complaints about too much Ubuntu news... Too much Mac news... Too much Windows 7 news... Too much gadget news... I'm not a particular adget freak either, but that is where the focus lies in the tech world at the moment - I don't think anyone on the team can really help that.

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.
