SIMON COWELL is a very nice man and probably has very nice lawyers, so
it is with great sadness that we discover that computers belongng to his
company Syco (geddit? It's an acronym that sounds like psycho) have been
But why hack Syco? Was it to lay grubby hands on Cowell's bank account
details? He is worth more money than God after all. Or to find his
tailor's name and address to arrange a hit (and we don't mean a top 10)?
Or to try and get Paula Abdul's phone number?
No, none of the above. Unbelievably people apparently are hacking into

(UK) winners Leona Lewis and Alexandre Burke and are selling them to
file sharing sites - according to the Current Bun.
