Apple This could be big - although just how big remains unclear. "There you have. 1,000,001 Apple Devices UDIDs linking to their users and their APNS tokens. The original file contained around 12,000,000 devices. We decided a million would be enough to release. We trimmed out other personal data as, full names, cell numbers, addresses, zipcodes, etc." How did AntiSec get this data (they claim)? From an FBI laptop. Why an FBI laptop would have a file with personal information on 12 million iOS users, we don't know - especially since 10000 of them are Dutch/Belgian, and last I checked, those do not fall under FBI jurisdiction. Did the FBI obtain it from an application developer, or from Apple itself? Then again - 12 million users? From a single iOS developer? I find that hard to believe.

This kind of news makes me glad I ditched Apple a while back. Though, this kind of thing is possible via Microsoft as well I'm sure.

I guess it's fortunate that I've recently been given an extra laptop that happens to be nearly 100% hardware supported on Haiku as well as most flavors of GNU/Linux. The sweet, sweet irony? It's a Sony Vaio. F*ck.
