A leading tech writer has revealed how easy it was for his 'entire 
digital life' to be destroyed in less than an hour - and how Apple 
security lapses mean it can happen to you.

Mat Honan, who writes for Wired, was hacked because Apple only requires 
basic security questions in order to access your Apple ID.

 From there the hackers were able to delete his Google and Gmail 
account, stop his iPhone from working and take control of his Twitter page.


Apparently, we are supposed to be more angry about what
Mitt Romney does with his money than what Barack Obama
does with ours.
