And... I put my foot in my mouth. I apologize, I didn't see where you said "Google key0x89b..." That's my bad, please free to point and make fun of me. The only real excuse I have for that is undiagnosed brain-damage or something.

My tasty little slice of humble-pie aside, I hope you'll still consider the rest of my post.

Heh. Here's a tip: 'Let Me Google That For You' is only worthwhile when the search terms are obvious. If you put in something as obscure as "key0x89b", then the sarcasm is just lost.

As for the links, thank you, I perused them, but I cannot find why you're raking Apple over the coals on it. The article is about certificates being burned in, "key0x89b" is about burning the decryption keys for the filesystem, unique to each device, into the memory on the machine. There are reasons why this is bad but it has nothing to do with things like man-in-the-middle attacks as mentioned in the article.

Please feel free to correct me, perhaps the list of links you showed me made me misinformed.
