blottsie writes Apple knew as early as March 2014 of a security hole that left the personal data of iCloud users vulnerable, according to leaked emails between the company and a noted security researcher. In a March 26 email, security researcher Ibrahim Balic tells an Apple official that he's successfully bypassed a security feature designed to prevent "brute-force" attacks. Balic goes on to explain to Apple that he was able to try over 20,000 passwords combinations on any account.

If they are using an internal WinModem, drivers and the ability to access this over linux may be severely limited. I would suggest if their only access point is a good old fashioned screeching modem that they get brought an external one (assuming that they don't already have one)

If this was true, there would be plenty of data with a positive correlation between game playing and immoral behavior. Can you point to any evidence that shows that games cause kids to "get out of control"?

I agree and think that the fact is that *most* kids are playing video games now days as a part of their usual leisure time and have been for the past 15 - 20 years. If there were such a correlation, there would be a lot more "out of control" kids running around.

If it's not in the computer, it doesn't exist.
