Hackers exploited the [Apple] system to gain full control of Wired journalist Mat Honan’s iCloud account and wipe his iPhone, iPad, and Mac, including precious photographs of his young daughter that he had not backed up.

Well, actually photo books don’t stop hackers. Photo books do, however, prevent the loss of photos that are stored on the computer, because as far as I know, no one has figured out how to steal a real book along with the data on a computer. The complete details of how hackers used Amazon and Apple to delete Mat’s files are available at How Apple and Amazon Security Flaws Led to My Epic Hacking and Apple and Amazon Review Security After Hack.
So, someone, please encourage Mat Honan to create a photo book with his precious photographs of his young daughter.
