Hackers and Crackers whats the difference?

Ive posted this link because through Tiswas its become apparent people still get mixed up.

A hacker is someone who takes something and makes it better. It has nothing to do with breaking into computers and breaking them as people often think. Hackers hack toasters, TVs, Dvd players etc and make them work better. Hackers also do computers but they dont break systems they work for the people who run them and make them better. Hackers are professional people

The Cracker is what people like Tiswas mean when they say hacker. The Cracker is the person who cracks computer systems, reads your email and so on.

Tiswas said Gary Mckinnon the guy who cracked all those American systems is a hacker. Its a common mistake.

Anyway read the link and you see why most people like Tiswas are talking rubbish.
