    I mentioned the same news in another thread and you are correct, it does not seem to be getting much attention here.

    Apple pushing cloud services. Another justification to keep 16gb base model with no room for additional storage space in the I devices.

    It's a black eye to iCloud (and other cloud services).

    No one wants to talk about security flaws in the "cloud". It's because all the major players (apple Microsoft and google) all see revenue streams. So they cannot make fun on each other security flaws in the cloud.

    And that is Apple's fault? I'd talk to the media sources that are burying the story, not Apple.

    I don't know how in the world you somehow read that post as blaming Apple. It was obviously an indictment of macrumors, which seems to be ignoring the story.

    This 'Cloud' fever is the weirdest thing I've ever seen. Really not exciting if you've dealt with the machines for a long time.

    Also I think there is a bit of censorship on anything that is negative to the Cloud (and/or iPhones & iPads). I own iPhones, iPads, iPods - I just don't base my whole existence on them. I could care less if the case size of an iPhone grows a millimeter.

    As for the Cloud mess, the real problem is how to opt out of this stuff. Most people are technically illiterate and don't know what they are signing on to. Like agreeing to a EULA - people just do it without thinking.

    I would use the cloud if I had more control of what goes up there. But they want too much info. Frankly I don't need the cloud as I run proper backups and do my own syncing. Although I doubt anyone would care about my data, the fact remains that it is in fact mine - and I'll decide where it goes.

    Finally, like anything, if you don't exercise a 'right,' that 'right' will wither away.

    If it wasn't for the dramatic rise in click bait recently, I wouldn't think much of not reporting on this. Instead it seems suspicious to not post anything about this when it would be a guaranteed flood of hits and comments.

    Fact that Apple just patched a very serious flaw with many famous iCloud users having their Breast and Vagina floating on the internet - Keep quiet

    What media are burying the story? It seems to be on every news site I visit. Except this one. :(

    That's the problem with this site. We don't know if Apple money is hitting this site or if the authors have a vested interest in Apple stocks. Many people can be bought nowadays. Even 9to5mac has a article about this hours ago.

    Maybe their with their families today :eek:
