Hacky Hack Hack

So, I'll admit the title of this post is stolen from the genius young man in Australia who was able to successfully hack into Apple's private systems, not once, not twice, but numerous times downloading over 90GB of data. Now I don't condone this sort of thing, but a tech giant as big as Apple should have known better, and while what the boy did was wrong, he did it because he wanted an insider look into the company that he aspired to work for as an adult. Chances are that dream will never come true now, but after getting off with eight months of probation and no jail time I would say the kid has pretty bright future ahead of him. Here's some irony surrounding the whole situation, he is now 19 years old going to university studying criminology and cyber safety. Maybe Apple will hire him after all to help them secure their network.
