A bit off-topic, but, as far as I understand, Mitnick, in his alleged deeds, also used social engineering rather than technical expertize (and all in the time when people were much less aware of that aspect of tech security).
But back on topic. If this is true, it just confirms the known fact (which stands even if the whole story doesn't) that no matter how secure your system is, one is never safe because the user is always a liability. Also, it would be interesting to know that Jobs purchased himself a Blu Ray player, something a Mac or Apple TV owner shouldn't need. Still, a big "if".
