Had Apple generate one for me, as I tend to do.

Decided to test an 8-character password that meets these so called "password strength" requirements - at least one number, one capital and one special character. The result is 4 minutes.

Then tried 4 random words with no special conditions - "your donkey sucks ass". The result is 17 centuries.

Make of that what you will...
