Humor: iCloud is user friendly and meets someone new
Now, with similar fanfare, iCloud is going to be the butt of jokes for a while. In fact, we imagine that there are some significant revisions being made to Tim Cook’s keynote speech for Apple’s announcement on September 9th.
We are sure to get some insight about what really happened with iCloud and the compromised celebrity accounts which saw all sorts of risqué pictures passed around the internet.

Does that mean you can never trust cloud storage again? No, but if anything, this most recent episode serves as a sober reminder to take no nonsense steps to protect your data. The most basic steps will often deter common attacks, since many will seek a path of least resistance.
As for what happened leading up this past weekend, it might have been as simple as the jokers at Joy of Tech depicted below.
