Some bad news for Apple.  It seems the algorithm used to make iTunes Gift Cards has been hacked by Chinese terrorists thieves and are being sold for pennies on the dollar over the Internets.  Frankly, why give your money to a thief when you can just as easily be a thief yourself (eliminate the middleman!) and get your music from Bittorent.  Not that that is right either….but Apple is going to be left with the bill from the record companies over all of this lost revenue for those who use fake gift cards.

Can Apple fix this without screwing everyone with real gift cards over as well?  We shall see.
