No, but there -has- been a mass breakout of 'hacked' Google Apps / Twitter accounts. What's that, social engineering and guessing of weak passwords? Well, that doesn't have the same cachet as poking fun at newsworthy companies, so we'll just sensationalize it and give it a misleading title instead.

-theGreater must be new here.

This would be funny except it's scary instead ...

Also, sad. F'r instance,
