SJ, I will not go to CNN's site just to read and give them the advantage of even one more hit! Can you at least post an excerpt?...

OT: am I the only one who doesn't like to click on a post only to find NOTHING but a link to another site?? Especially with no warning in the post...

at least they didn't interview dvorak.

All they did is post some odd story about some guy who 'got a virus from a web site'. No tech, no data, just rehashed BS. Nothing new here, move along.

1 person having something he doesnt understand happen to his mac does not equal a virus

Rowdy ought to stick with reading reliable sources like Fox News or Drudge.

"The bottom line is we still feel more comfortable using a Mac than a (Windows) PC," said Alan Paller, director of research for SANS."


That's the third to last paragraph in the article.

This is defeinitely a case of "man bites dog."

They gloss over the fact that *millions* of PC users are being bitten by the Windows mongrel every day.
