The Macalope: ‘Oh, Kay’

The Macalope on Roger Kay’s goofy Apple products are now plagued by security problems and they had it coming piece in BusinessWeek:

Could someone please sit down the slower students in the class and explain to them that “hackers” who seek to alter a device’s software for the purpose of giving it more functionality are not the same as “hackers” who try to find illicit ways to compromise your data for personal gain.

Kay apparently believes there’s a rash of people breaking into the homes of Apple customers, installing applications on their iPhones or enabling them to be used with other carriers and then slipping away into the night.
