  1. It’s simple Apple/Mac OS-X has so many security holes they don’t want to even admit it. So they just turn a blind eye to the problem at hand.

  2. Why are so many folks freaked or stumped about the Apple support article about antivirus. I can not believe you believed the Apple site was hacked? Apple is getting people ready for the malware and viruses to come; may not be many – but its out there.

  3. I enjoyed your discussion regarding Mac antivrus. With the news that Microsoft will be releasing their own free antivirus/antispyware program late next year (code-named Morro), should Apple integrate some sort of Antivirus into their OS instead of relying on outside companies? Would this be better? Worse? With the negative response to companies like Norton maybe Apple should follow Microsoft’s lead. Interested in future discussion regarding this issue.
