If there were any takeaways from yesterday's Apple event - beyond the products - they were:

1. Apple takes security seriously.

2. Apple doesn't mind laughing at itself.

Apple actually stole its own thunder by leaking specs for the new iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 - a solid twelve hours before they were announced. Whether it was a marketing mistake or an inside security flaw that allowed for the error, Apple decided to address the situation from a security perspective. And it did so in hilarious fashion.

Apple CEO Tim Cook will be the first to tell you how much further ahead his company is from the pack in terms of security. And, in many ways, he is spot on. Of course, in these times, nothing is 100%. So instead of making wild claims, the tech giant chose a far more entertaining way to address the very real issue of security - with a real-life funny man!
