The news has been full of the most recent major hacking episode. No, not that morning ritual undertaken by smokers the world over, but the theft of photos from prominent people’s phones. Apple has taken measures to secure the iCloud so that in future thefts will not be possible. I’m sure that comes as bad news for many of the alleged celebrities as this has been their best ‘exposure’ in years.
Of course the issue here isn’t what was stolen, but rather that privacy was invaded. If someone breaks into your home and only steals your ice-cream, it’s an invasion nonetheless.
If the target of these hacks is now Hollywood stars, can bloggers be far behind, I ask you? Therefore I have taken the precautionary step of packing my iPhone with pictures of burly, sculpted, six-packed male bodies, with my head and face Photoshopped onto them. Come and get ’em!
