Anonymous sub-group Anti-Sec supposedly holds in its hands 12-million Apple user IDs it acquired from hacking. The hacktivist group refuses to release the IDs until -- wait for it -- Adrien Chen of Gawker poses on the front page of the site in a ballet tutu with a shoe on top of his head. It remains to be seen whether Anonymous does have anything to give the public it strives to supposedly protect, or whether this was just another one of their pranks done "for the lulz," that is to say, for the stroking of their own vanity.
When my friend suggested I get an iPhone, I said that I didn't need one. Now that I've got one (and I love it) I can see he was right about it being a facilitator of convenience and creator of efficiency; boy, is it ever! What I didn't anticipate is that all of those other gadgets in my life would lose their purpose once I got an iPhone.
