Yes, Apple Really Does Have A Serious Problem With Computer Viruses And Malware - Forbes

Yes, Apple Really Does Have A Serious Problem With Computer Viruses And Malware - Forbes | Cloud Central | Scoop.it
As those with memories stretching back a couple of decades will recall the various forms of computer malware, the viruses, trojans and the like, were things that affected Microsoft Windows users.
Peter Azzopardi's insight:

The author is being rather kind IMO. Malware, trojans, adware, all this stuff is there for one reason and one reason alone. Money! In this case via illicit means. And yes MacOS and iOS are certainly worth targetting now.

 

The real difference here is that MS knows Windows has holes, but has a dedicated taskforce to deal and patch ASAP. Apple, OTOH, never had to deal with such a situation and have been caught with their pants down. I think it is a cause for concern but by no means irrepairable.

Why Windows 8 matters and why Android will eventually just fade away. | Cloud Central | Scoop.it

I started this article by saying that Windows 8 matters. Why? Because it really does. There are people who are so convinced and will do anything to convince you that the post-PC world is already here and the “war” is over. Just like on the famous speech given on the deck of USS Abraham Lincoln there is no truth in this argument. The “war”, if you can call it that, hasn’t in many ways even started yet.
