    The iCloud is bulletproof because it's based on rock-solid Unix. It's the power of Objective-C and Cocoa that prevents any hacking.

    The same Unix which other companies have been running but have been hacked?

    Nothing is bulletproof.

    It still amazes me that Apple's authentication is based on a single login name (email address) and password. I will never switch my email away from Google to any provider that doesn't provide the same 2 step authentication awesomeness that they do.

    (For the uninformed, you tie your Google account to your mobile number. When you log in using a valid username and password, it sends a text message to your phone with an authentication code. That way, a hacker also needs access to your mobile phone to get into your account.)

    This is really irrelevant to this topic though - they are discussing third party use of Mac OS X Server.

    We also have to assume they are using Mac OS X Server, not some custom server OS.
