For the first time, we have extensive details on iCloud security. For security professionals like myself, this is like waking up and finding a pot of gold sitting on my keyboard. Along with some of the most impressive security I’ve ever seen, Apple has provided a way to make it impossible for agencies like the NSA to obtain your iCloud Keychain passwords.
This view of the twilight sky and Martian horizon taken by NASA’s Curiosity Mars rover includes Earth as the brightest point of light in the night sky. Earth is a little left of center in the image, and our moon is just below Earth.
Wow, what a bargain…they only lost about 10 billion.
I’m sure the stock is up, because…Google.
I bet it would take longer to literally flush $9.5 billion in cash down a toilet than it took for Google to do so figuratively on the Motorola acquisition.

So, Apple must have had a pretty dismal quarter, right? I mean look at those guys’ quotes!
Apple reported record earnings of $14.50 per share on sales of $57.6 billion Monday — beating both its and Wall Street’s expectations.
51 million iPhones in sold.
26 million iPads sold.
4,8 million Macs sold.
6 million iPods sold.
In. One. Quarter.
Oh yeah, 160 BILLION in cash. Clearly doomed.
I guess it’s not a hobby anymore.
