Over the weekend someone released hundreds of revealing photos of celebrities that appear to have been stolen from private storage. In response to this, a bunch of anonymous guys on the internet copied them and posted them all over the town square, because the internet is written in ink and if you are ever a victim once in your life the internet will remind you of it forever. These men are the detritus of human society for whom the internet provides a warm blanket, so let's remove the warm blanket for a minute. If the NSA spies on us, it's a massive violation of privacy and omg government and #impeachobama. When some (hopefully not for much longer) anonymous hacker breaks into the personal, private accounts of dozens of famous women, steals their most private photographs, and posts them online, these same men shouting from the rooftops about the NSA retreat to their bunkers, share the photos as much as they can, and do much more I'd rather not imagine right now. Props to The Verge for this article.

Anand Lal Shimpi, the editor and publisher of the well-regarded AnandTech site, is going to work at Apple. An Apple rep confirmed that the company was hiring Shimpi, but wouldn't provide any other details. Last night, via a post on the site he founded in 1997, Shimpi said he was "officially retiring from the tech publishing world," but didn't say what he was doing next. "I won't stay idle forever. There are a bunch of challenges out there :)", he wrote. This is great news for him, and after 17 years of some of the best technology journalism in the world, he certainly deserves a change of pace. Still, the rest of us lose a great voice, one of the best technology journalists of all time. Inside Apple, nobody hears you scream.
