Despite warnings from his advisers, the president insisted on keeping his beloved PDA, which now has specially designed superencrypting security software.

Yes this so called hacker and security expert had his own site compromised. The truth of Mitnick is that he is not a hacker, nor a cracker but in fact he is a social engineer. He cons people into doing all the work for him by playing on their psycological vunlerabilties more than the weaknesses of actual networks.

You might be able to hack it but you would find nothing but gobbledygook

Anything can be hacked. That is, anything that is connected via cables or through a wireless network.... It really is that simple. The subject here should be, what is the degree of difficulty.
The only networks that are said to be "hacker proof" are high level government networks, such as the CIA's network. However, just because they claim it is hacker proof does not mean it is actually hacker proof. Just because, you can't think of a way around something.... Doesn't mean it can't be done... Anything is possible in the world of electronics.
