Thought of the Day 2010 #142 - Hacked?

The iPad user email list theft is all over the news today. The evening news indicated that iPad users had been "hacked". Not so. We iPad owners with 3G contracts have been exposed. Most likely the main exposure will be in the potential onslaught of phishing spam emails. Nothing too serious...yet. I just dislike the use of sensationalistic terms like "hacked" to grab viewer attention. Just give us the details without embellishment, please.
