Photo Stream is on a one month loop. After that they're gone. They're not recoverable, even if Apple is not actually deleting them for some reason.

The rumor is a brute force password attack through a path that didn't limit attempts. However, it seems unlikely that all these celebs would have guessable passwords and that the attacker would know their Apple ID.

The details that are slowly emerging don't add up so well to an iCould (in particular) breach, but rather it's the emergence of a large collection gathered slowly over time through a multitude of sources and devices and techniques.

I knew one very talented programmer in the 90's who was taking every short-term consulting job he could find. There was a shortage of talent and he had built a great reputation for reliability, so he often took on several jobs at once and was good enough to get them done properly and on time. He commanded crazy-high rates and sunk everything he made into the markets.

Then one day in late 1999 he said "You know what? I have enough." He cashed out everything and retired at 39. He readily admits there was no foresight in it, he just got lucky and cashed out at the top.

Pretty much the only way to avoid that in most cases is to eat so little that you aren't meeting your daily caloric needs, which means you'd need to starve yourself to death in order to avoid taking insulin.

Well that's certainly not true. You can eat plenty of meat, eggs, spinach, broccoli, olive oil and much much more.
