  1. Damn, you were right, Johnny.

    “It Just Works” is a lie.

    “Secure” is a lie.

    Proof: these security updates – recommended for everyone – are more and more frequent. Something must be broken, otherwise, who would need these “fixes”?

  2. Johnny,

    Do you own a Mac? Do you have issues with it? No? Then Shut up. The reason the Mac is safe is because we get security upgrades like these. Prevention works.

    Yep, bunches of ’em. In fact, all of them. Since ’84 – must be one of Apple’s best and most loyal and I’m real tired of getting the run-around from them when I call about known, verified, and widely experienced bugs galore in iLife (except iTunes, which seems perfect – as the rest of iLife SHOULD BE) and other of Apple’s s’ware that used to be so good.

    “It Just Works” is a lie.

    That’s why I have come to the conclusion that the conversion to Intel, access to Windows, seamless interchange with all things Microsoft upcoming in Leopard – are all evidence of Apple’s plan to phase out of the OS business and become the marketer of expensive aluminum enclosures and cute iPods.

    That they won’t come clean about such plans is taking me, and the rest of us, as a pack of lemmings.

    Confirmation can be found, in abundance, within these forums.
