Evil. Don't do it.

No. Just no. Don't let anyone trap your friends family photographs,
music collection etc and hold to ransom. Don't recommend least smelly
prison cell. Just no. They're friends.

Is joke. I have friends who hack kernel who got caught in the
cupertino infinite loop. (Although one of them executed a daring break
statement by losing something called a "4s" in a san francisco taxi
and claimed his pink slip of triumph. "Best thing that ever happened
to me." Is how he now describes it. Company he went to got acquired by
facebrick. Hmm. But this last paragraph is clearly a troll to finish
on. If you have been, I'm sorry.
