Have they ruled it out? When you factor that the statement's intended audience is the entire world, not just cyber security experts, the wording becomes muddy, as it depends on you how you interpret the word "breach".
If someone successfully uses a password attack, is it actually a 'breach' of Apple's systems? After all, the systems successfully prevented entry until a valid password was entered, which is exactly what the systems were designed to do.

I'm more an Apps guy than a barebones guy. I can do complex stuff like debugging multi-threaded code and writing stuff that is atomic but my maths is generally pretty bad. I'm also very good with people, talking and writing.
The password list for this particular implementation is pretty limited. I doubt all the celebs hacked had a password on that list. The concept may well have been used with different code / pw dictionary.
I think its the size of the burden. If you're creating a thing from scratch and are responsible for pretty much every single aspect of it from dev to sysadmin PLUS you have CTO responsibilities on top of that you just lose track of stuff and make the odd mistake.
"I'll fix that a bit later" becomes "I have no idea what code is there anymore nor even the time to contemplate it".
I love the EU man. It doesn't look like you understand the plan. Given the size of the US, China and India each European nation alone is weak. However combined they are the largest economy in the world.
We're doing this to remain relevant and to prevent other nations from tearing us apart through uneven economic exchanges much like workers ensure they cannot be exploited by joining unions. It is a union and has all the perks (and problems!) associated with unionization.
"It's too complicated" moaned George, he continued:
"Mr Main has asked me to deliver all of these invites to the birthday party but I keep forgetting which people I've given invitations to. I gave Sam three invites and Polly hasn't got one yet, it's no use! I can't remember which invite is which!"
"Don't worry" said Ivy, "lets work together to make this more simple! I'll remember which invitation we're giving and which one is next, so all you have to do is deliver the invite!"
George beamed, "Really? You can do that for me?"
"Sure thing George! They don't call me Ivy Iterator for nothing!"
