Hack or Hick?


Yesterday I got this secret email from Fido announcing the forthcoming availability of the hiptop 2—the very same device owned by no-talent Paris Hilton, and compromised by someone who hacked into her T-Mobile database.

Am I worried that my own personal data won’t be safe? Hell, no! First of all, the hiptop itself is relatively hack-proof, provided that you lock it down with a passkey. It’s T-Mobile that’s clearly to blame here, as their web servers have been infiltrated before.

And I could be wrong, but I somehow don’t think that anyone would be all that interested in seeing candid topless photos of me…

    But if someone did hack your PDA, wouldn’t they have Albert W. Howell’s phone number?
    Actually, I did feel sorry for those celebs whose phone numbers were hacked, but, on more thought, I realized if someone were stupid enough to give Paris Hilton a real phone number….

  3. Hey Mikey,

    You know it! I think Fido Customer Service opens at 8:30am on March 8th, the rumoured release date for the ht2. I’ll race ya for the first new unit…
