More incentive to not be an iSheep.
I'm glad I didn't jump on the iBandwagon.
Sad indeed however this is also partially FUD. Apple uses AES-256 BIT to encrypt the device. The encryption is hardware based and has NOT been cracked. All they did was figured out how to get the encryption keys from the device and thus making the encryption useless. This is still a scary find but not as scary a find as they are claiming. A similar thing has been done on other devices and programs. (PSP/PS3 being a couple of them).
This should be a reminder that encryption is only as strong as its weakest link; in this case it was how/where the keys where stored. hopefully apple corrects this and doesn't make this mistake again.
