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.

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.

At least Windows, Mac OS and Ubuntu are operating systems. At times I've got slightly tired of hearing about Ubuntu, but at least it fits for one thing, and it's not a damn gadget. With Ubuntu's bizarre, stupid ideas the last several versions and for the future though, Ubuntu is getting on my nerves now. But I don't think I'd complain about an Ubuntu article, because it'd probably still be better than the crap posted lately...

I don't mind hearing about "gadgets" every once in a while, but I swear--sometimes that's all there is to read here, and to make it worse it's often about ONE gadget from ONE company, or lawsuits between massive telecommunications companies.

I've actually been finding DistroWatch Weekly to be more interesting than OSNews lately, and it used to be the other way around. Too bad it's only a weekly publication.
