You scaremongering fools.
This is OLD news.
NO DATA IS SHARED WITH ANYONE IT IS ONLY KEPT ON YOUR LOCAL DEVICES
I despair at this level of so-called journalism.
GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT BEFORE HIT-WHORING
Your fake post isn't fooling anyone. But if you DID have 2 braincells to rub together you would know that a Mini or MP make excellent Windows machines too. Poor soul.
Serves them right for buying ANYthing from Symantec.
Never heard of Filevault built into Mac OS X??? doh.
Right now let's be sensible..
...and look at the figures.
Apple has 3.9% of the GLOBAL handset market and takes 47% of the entire industry profits.
Now who is in the rear view mirror?
Keep buying your wannabe iPhone copies cheapskates.
Apple are laughing at you.
How do you numpties feel who were crapping on about this AMAZING "iPhone-killer"?
No surprises there then...
Business as usual.
(Watch and weep PC weenies!)
Hello? Where is Rik??
Am I in a parallel universe?
This article actually has merit and accuracy and is well thought out. Well done.
Now who is this imposter who wrote it? It can't be Rik as he has NEVER EVER written anything that is worth reading in his entire career! How bizarre!
Please keep this Rik 2.0.
That's because it IS the Service Pack. Doh.
Are there still people out there who don't realise that W7 is just Vista with the crud taken out?
Haha good one!!
You should do stand up mate, seriously! That was the best imitation of total and utter blinkered ignorance that I have heard for YEARS!! Thank you!!!
Yeah, just like you laughed the iPhone out of the industry.
Prepare for mobile computing to be redefined.
I play loads of games on my Mac Pro. Mostly top PC games in fact, faster and smoother than you have seen on any PC at 2550x1600. Because my Mac is FLEXIBLE and not a software-limited malware-magnet you wasted your money on.
Yes Martin GROWTH. Go and look at the last year of APple financials. YOU sorry PC zealots may have been through a recession and FAILED. Apple GREW. You are in for a long, clearly unexpcted fall my son. Enjoy! *shakes head*
It's not a NEED it's a comfort blanket for Switchers who know no better and it gives unlimited flexibility to Mac users who prefer not to be restricted to Windows only security hell. You poor soul.
Strange then how in the same period Mac sales rocketed even above their increased sales of the previous year.
Higher cost higher margin computers = healthy Apple
Low cost, mediocre crudware = dying PC vendors / Microsoft.
"Windows 7 will increase PC sales and take back Market share from Apple!" bleated Wndows zealots.
Ummm no, any Market share increases of PCs is down to huge numbers of cheap crappy low profit netbooks and bargain basement laptops. Low profit. Fail.
Apple are thrashing the PC industry around the face. Love it.
Get used to it, it's only just begun! :)
And how many times has this bug been exploited in the wild? ZERO.
Get a clue people and look up "Proof of concept"
Good luck remotely hacking any Mac! hahah
Poor Windoze zealots.
Are you seriously saying you didn't see this coming from the moment Google Earth added 3D buildings?!
Learn to join the dots people for goodness sake. It was the only reason Google Earth came in to existence!
Wow, that's an INCREDIBLY impressive failure rate considering the millions they sell a quarter!
Well done Apple!
You Register "journalists" need to get out more. Seriously.
How long are you going to use this braindead "fanboi" moniker for?
It is puerile and makes you look truly pathetic.
Will you still be using it when Apple market share reaches 20%?
You are an embarrassment.
There is so much wrong and misguided about your comment it's unreal. Seriously.
I suggest you visit other sites than technology from now on. It's just not your thing.
Poor old chap.
Thanks for trying though!
Wassup with you?
Can't afford a Mac so you go all anti?
Stick with Windows and use the money for AV software. Much better choice.
You poor Windows zealots. You poor poor people.
Get a grip get a life get a Mac.
Strange how M$ lost money whilst "overpriced crApple" had one of the most profitable years in history huh?
Wakey wakey people. If you can't see that the dark ages of IT are coming to and end then you shouldn't even be allowed to go near a computer.
Windows Mobile 6.5? Zune HD? Vista?
Mediocrity. Not good enough.
Apple shares at a 52 week high - almost tripling this year.
Goodbye Microsoft. It's not been a pleasure.
Macs run Windows 100% too.
Bin the garbage Windows-only hardware.
Umm yes of course.
The PC is gathering dust after they switched to Mac.
You Windows-loving fools are so funny.
"I hate Macs but my iPhone just works, it's great!"
THE IPHONE IS A MOBILE MAC!!!!!
Apple is selling mobile Macs by stealth and you haven't realised 2 years down the road.
aww poor likkle Windows-sufferers
It's fun watching you squirm.
You realise you spent good money to suffer like this right?
Get a grip, get a life, get a Mac.
haha sorry. That just cracked me up.
Absolutely right Dana. The dumbass Windoze zealots days are numbered and their frantic squealing is proof. The dark days of Windows mediocrity are coming to an end.
@Jack - I concur!
@TeeCee - lol I THOROUGHLY Concur! My bad. ;)
Designed to "close the gap on Apple" huh?
That is the MOST it will do.
But somehow I don't think iPhone development is standing still.
Wave goodbye to the mobile market M$!
Whatever M$ funded FUD you may read in the tech press...
Every iteration of Mac OS X gets FASTER...
Every Iteration of Windows gets SLOWER...
Whichever OS you choose, you can only run them both 100% native, 100% reliable and 100% legally on a Mac.
Either way Apple wins hands down. Beige box crapware manufacturers be damned.
Most of the posters here are slagging off WM 6.5 and at the same time using XP or Vista!
You realise the iPhone is just a mobile Mac and Snow Leopard is just as far ahead of your Windoze crud as iPhone OS X is ahead of WM right?
What a load of BS
I am getting VERY fed up with the crap The Register drool out re Mac security.
Yeah Apple should listen to some jumped up p***k who wrote a book.
Yeah Apple REALLY need help with security. Look how awful OS X security is. lol
ABSOLUTE DRIVEL FROM START TO FINISH.
I really don't know why I bother with this site.
You poor little Windows-sufferers still desperately clinging to ANYthing that will stop the continual and inevitable gains OS X has made for years and will continue to make and take share away from you sorry losers. lol
Awww you poor likkle Windows-sufferers.
SO desperate to improve your computing experience but you welfare won't stretch to a Mac.
Bin your cruddy hardware and join the elite already.
Get a grip, get a life, get a Mac.
You poor soul.
You may THINK you are running 10.5. You have a half-arsed sort of working version. Good luck updating to 10.6, and I can assure you running those three OS on my Mac Pro would spank your sorry little crappily-built Dell.
You are also breaking Apple's EULA.
The ONLY way to run multiple OS 100% and faster than anyone else - do it on Mac hardware.
Game over wannabees!
It's a SURVEY! Of 300 people! lol
Wait for the real figures you numbskulls.
It's great fun watching M$ squirm and die. :)
wakey wakey M$ zealots. You are on a road to nowhere.
Stop your whining and get a Mac.
You poor Windows-suffering fool.
People like you exist so that Mac OS X users can be better than you.
There are NO viruses for Mac OS X.
Many orders of magnitude? Read INFINITY numbskulls.
SO much ignorance SO many fools.
Keep talking Windows zealots. Enjoy your AV software.
Chrome is based on Apple's Webkit.
We already have Chrome - it's called Safari.
Safari in Snow Leopard will have all the sandboxing Chrome does.
What are you talking about?
It was "too late" about a year ago.
The IT press is SO slow. It's like watching an oil tanker try and turn.
WM is dead in the water - you will realise this in about 18 months.
Do try and keep up.
Too little too late Monkey-Boy!
You are on a sinking ship and you can't even see it!
Start swimming windoze fanbois!
All you poor Windoze zealots secretly pining for Mac OS X. Makes me laugh!
Get a grip, get a life, get a Mac!
iPhone has replaced these also-rans.
No one cares.
hahah you funny bunch!
OS X 8 years - NO viruses.
(Go look up Trojan. It is NOT a virus numbnuts)
There are 120000+ Windows viruses and not ONE Mac OS X virus.
Do the maths.
OS X is secure against viruses (so far)
There is NO point in AV software on a Mac - you are looking for something that does't exist.
AVG are jumping on the bandwagon and taking advantage of IGNORANT PC to Mac switchers.
You sorry Windows zealots are jumping at this little glimmer of hope for a Mac virus! Sorry - you have a long wait.
In less than a year no one will remember what a Pre is!
The iPhone however will be the dominant mobile computing platform for years to come.
What a stupid article.
WHAT a surprise the N97 is a brick. *rolls eyes*
All you poor Nokia fanbois must be gutted to discover what most people had known all along.
Looks like you all have to get iPhones after all!
Apple will rule the mobile computer market for years to come. Deal with it.
You bunch of whining cheapskates on welfare!
None of this whining will stop the iPhone 3GS from decimating the handset market while you all squirm in misery!
Narrow-minded blinkered ignorami every one of you.
You took it for a spin huh?
Well no wonder you posted anonymously you you pirate.
What a load of BS. It isn't FINISHED yet. Idiot.
I will enjoy you squirming as Windows suffers a slow painful death..
What a bunch of idiots
Those of you with iPhone envy just get a life. Whether you like it or not iPhone will come to dominate the mobile space for the next 10 years. Keep whining while I sit back and enjoy your fury! lol
