Here's another story in the saga about iCloud vulnerability, sent to us by Jim Hamm. He comments, "Apple has an article explaining what to do about iCloud if you plan to sell your Mac or other Apple device.
"What is not clear in Apple's article (at least to me) is that your device must be connected to the internet to decommission iCloud. Although, thinking about this, it does make sense. But it's easy to overlook, and it could be made plainer.
"As a side note, one must also de-authorize the device from iTunes as well before selling your Mac or other Apple device. If I recall correctly, only five devices can be authorized to play iTunes under one account.
His final comment, "I imagine we'll learn more about the pros and cons of using iCloud as time goes on."
