    It's not hacking if you willingly input your login information - it is going a good few steps too far though.

    Well, you know how the story goes. They were told by a little bird about some piracy issues and then this happens.

    Aw, shuckles...

    So, practically, you don't input your login details in the application itself - it gets it via phishing cross spyware? Well, I'm pretty sure that's illegal and someone's in a world of trouble now.

    They should get sued for this - I wonder how they'd tweet then.

    Everyday it seems like the User Submitted News section is becoming more like the User Submitted Puns section.

    I'm pretty sure that posting puns is not a punishable offense, unlike phishing for account data and posting on someone's tweeter - that kind of enfource should be punishable.

    I'm on freaking fire!

    I think the most appalling part of this thread is that the Oxford Dictionary app is $55.
