Like every major technology company, Apple needs the rest of the world to love its products just as much as a growing cadre of Americans already do. For Apple, however, expanding overseas has never been an easy task. Its high-end products aren't well-suited for tackling emerging markets, and it has taken its share of lumps in moving into markets such as Japan.

It demonstrates that all critical infrastructure sectors are at high risk of disruption by cybercriminals.
Everyone will be paying for this attack in the form of higher energy costs.
Governments need to work more closely with private industries to protect networks for the sake of public safety.
It's a global problem. An international alliance must be formed to hold the perpetrators accountable and prevent future attacks.
