Submission + - Apple Developer Website "hacked"

RdeCourtney writes: Apple has just sent out an email to all developers:

Last Thursday, an intruder attempted to secure personal information of our registered developers from our developer website. Sensitive personal information was encrypted and cannot be accessed, however, we have not been able to rule out the possibility that some developers’ names, mailing addresses, and/or email addresses may have been accessed. In the spirit of transparency, we want to inform you of the issue. We took the site down immediately on Thursday and have been working around the clock since then.

In order to prevent a security threat like this from happening again, we’re completely overhauling our developer systems, updating our server software, and rebuilding our entire database. We apologize for the significant inconvenience that our downtime has caused you and we expect to have the developer website up again soon.

"God is still real, I can assure you of this" Please assure me, and provide 1 rational, scientifically sound, non circular-reasoning proof or evidence that there is a g(G)od. p.s. stating something along the lines of Paleys Watch or Pascals Wager, that something is so complicated that there has to be divine inspiration doesn't cut it. Someone looking at an iPhone 5 a hundred years ago would think it was magic or godly (and Apple now would be want us to believe that too!!), doesn't mean to say it is.

They're not wasting their money.. is replaces the original Wii. So they have 2 products - The full blown Wii U and then Wii Mini. The Wii Mini will be their entry level machine, no internet is great so I can let the kids play and not have to worry about them accessing the internet - it's a basic console. It's also only $99. If I want to access the internet and have full access to the internet, then I have my Wii U.

Or Obama used information gathered since 2008 by the US military for the "Hurricane Aerosol and Microphysics Program (HAMP)" to create an event influence the elections... "The Department of Homeland Security asked NOAA/ESRL in Boulder to organize a workshop on possible new scientific theory and approaches to hurricane modification in February, 2008. Nearly two dozen scientists from around the world attended and there were a number of hypotheses and new ideas presented. We shall summarize the workshop results here and the development of the new DHS-funded HAMP Program that arose from the Workshop. HAMP is only the first Phase in a planned three-phase program. There will be no actual seeding trials unless one or more of the modification hypotheses is confirmed in Phase 1, through an interactive program of high-resolution coupled models and new aircraft observations. HAMP will focus on the effects of aerosols on cloud microphysics within the hurricane and on the effects of aerosols on hurricane structure and behavior, especially changes in hurricane intensity.
