Not surprising

Telnet's no less secure than POP3. POP3 (unless wrapped in SSL) also passes username and password in plaintext.

Also, Akamai (which is not owned by Apple) doesn't manage Apple's web-servers. Akamai provides a distributed cache from which content is served, and also provides geographic load balancing thereby moving content closer to the end user (i.e., speeding things up). The original content, however, is still served by Apple's own web-servers wherever they may be.
