Anybody wanna guess what Apple will call their AV software? Personally, I'm guessing it's gonna be something cute, like "First Aid".

You'd think the phishers would start to target the Apple market as I'm sure NOBODY protects any of their info on apple products...it would be a field day...hell, MAC users can't even use two mouse keys, you know that they can't figure out how to secure their private info! Idiots.

I only want it to get bad enough for that fireball guy to retract his 'Wolf!' statement :)

This only makes me happy because it smashes the rumor that Apple can't get a virus or any infection for that matter. Now, with that said, I feel bad for the user who was completely decived by Apple. What apple failed to tell them is that, their market share is so low (when compared to Windows) that very few care to even write an infection for Apple products. Anywho, yes at this point Windows PC's get more viruses, but only because they (we) have been targeted for a long time. Again, that is because of Windows marketshare being so high. It makes sense. 

This is bittersweet news. Bitter for the customers, sweet to know that Apple's cover as perfect has been blown :-)

Ditto. I've always felt that there are really only two things wrong with Apple products:
1- Their price
2- Their smug community

yeah that pretty much sums it up.

Although if on the rare chance I ever did wanted to buy a Macbook or any apple product, I would really like to be able to choose its color rather than just have silver/whatever color they just sell.

Holy crap, someone has almost the exact same view as me. I explained to my older brother's girlfriend a week ago that Mac's don't get viruses not because they are inpenetrable, which they aren't, but because the market share of Macs is so low, no one gives a damn. High five! :D

it was just a matter of time and because apple has denied it and blinded them selfs to it they now have to play catch up.

Oh this is so funny. ROTFLMAO

I'm starting to think this whole thing is about karmic debt over all those Justin Long comercials.

What makes it even sweeter is how a Apple tech stated in a previous article here that it was nothing compared to what PC's get.

Apple's long running PR concept to deny everything that makes their products look normal instead of "blessed" by their god Steve Jobs is really starting to make them look like idiots. I wonder how they'll spin this one. lol

god jobs does not have to deny he just comes down from his apple cyber shrine and tells all the apple users to move on nothing to see here take your red pill and move along.

Great analogy.  Wait... maybe that wasn't an analogy.
