It’s Funny When Apple Gets Hacked

Usually there’s nothing funny about hacking. At least not to anyone except hackers. A hack announced usually means that you have to frantically hurry to update your software with the latest patches. It’s usually irritating and annoying, even when you don’t find yourself playing host to a botnet. But there’s something undeniably funny when Apple gets hacked. Especially when Apple’s highly touted iPhone gets hacked a week out of the gate.

It’s not just a case of schauedenfreunde at seeing Steve Jobs’ hubris rewarded with a blizzard of technically elegant and innovative workarounds. It’s the inevitable gloating that Apple fanboys inflict on anyone using Windows when the latest Windows threat emerges accompanied by snide remarks that those using Macs are somehow immune because they’re naturally superior. Well they aren’t. As everyone knows they’re simply too small a market share to be bothered with. Now that iPhone has made its big entrance, it has the market share to make it worth hacking and it has been hacked. Sad ain’t it. Not.
