You're an glass-half-empty kind of guy. Focus mainly on weakness, rather than strength or both at the same time. On the bolded part, wasn't iOS 8.0.1 dealt with very quickly? Somehow it's bad for Tim but was good for Steve?
How did you obtain a password by answering security questions? That doesn't make any sense. When I put in the wrong password a few times I need to answer security questions. If I answer it right I got the chance to try again. It didn't give me any password, or let me in itself.You may obtain the password by calling iCloud support personally, pretending to be the owner but you need more than security password to convince those guys.
