But that’s irrelevant.
When we first broke the news that Apple’s ‘Kill Switch’ (er, having to log in to iCloud, that’s their best effort at a BlackBerry Remote Security Wipe via BlackBerry Protect – kinda brings it home when you look at it like that) had been bypassed we were rather shocked at the fact that no one seemed to be particularly bothered in the mainstream media.
Even the other tech blogs weren’t that interested.
A quick search of Google has brought us the following gems, it would seem that word is finally beginning to reach the outside world, however much Apple sites attempt to suppress it, of the full ramifications of what these two guys have done.
So, in an attempt to inform, here’s a few links for you. Feel free to Re Tweet this post on to any news organisations of your choosing.
Well, 2 reasons really:
1) If this were BlackBerry it would be front page news
2) Apple products are actually incredibly woeful. Awful. The pits. Not just because they are bad (which they are), but because they PRETEND to be good.
And in that pretence they successfully take a load of cash of unsuspecting customers who don’t realise just what they are getting themselves into.
Be mindful as you click on these links that the common theme is that Apple ‘haven’t got back to them’ or have ‘refused to comment.’.
Still, I’m sure it will ALL BE SORTED tomorrow at the Apple Devs Conference when they reveal the iPhone6 and iOS8!
And here’s my personal favourite from our friends at iMore:

That’s the way, close it down, pretend it isn’t happening, put your fingers in your ears and shout LALALALALALALALALA as loudly as you can.
But it is.
And iPhonians need to know about it.
It’s only fair to them as customers, surely?
Oh, one last thing:
NO ONE EVER HACKED A BLACKBERRY.
AND NO ONE EVER GOT FIRED FOR BUYING THEM.
Just thought you should know before you put your job on the line.
