IBM, 3M glue chips into silicon skyscrapers

Tiny holes and cables

Several companies including Intel and IBM are working on this concept of 3D silicon skyscrapers.

Puting multiple layers in the same package (what many including Apple) have done, is nothing (and very different from) compared to 3D chips.

In 3D chips, many tiny holes are 'drilled' in the silicon material through which the cabling goes from layer to layer. These 'holes' and 'cables' are microscopic. I believe somewhere in the range of Microns, but it might as well be much smaller.

New Mac scareware variant installs without password

It's just the beginning

Password, no password, that's not important. What's important is these visrusses get attention. And that's one of the reasons virus writers spend lots of time to develop them.

MS has had some very bad experiences with visusses, and took action. They spent a fortune on making WIndows safe. Not all their methods where accepted with big enthousiasm, but in general, Windows is pretty safe.

Apple hardly spent energy in making their OS safe. They where just lucky not many virusses where out there targeting them, which gave their users the false inception of a safe OS.

I have no good word for virus writers. I think they are scum bags. But, I must admit, I would love to see Apple struggle when virusses target their systems.

The way you react...

You react like if someone says something about your religion you don't agree with...
