  1. Yipes! I always figured macs to be safer than PC’s

    • Me too, Andy, and so it has proved for me, a mac user for more than six years – Geoff (other half) got me onto the mac, he’s never used any other operating system. I’ve never had any trouble with mine, but then, I have the software updates coming in ‘automatically’ every week – never any guarantees though, by the looks of it.

  2. THANK YOU! I have a Mac that’s been a dud from the beginning. I don’t know how many times I’ve taken it in to the Genius Bar and each time, of course, it behaves in public and they tell me nothing is wrong. Last time they even told me I need to take a class on how to use the internet because they say I’m doing something wrong! I keep telling everyone it’s like there’s a “ghost in my machine.” Like someone else is controlling it. No one believes me because of the ‘Mac can’t get a virus’ “myth.” It’s less than two years old and I use it as little as possible. So frustrating! So I printed out your article here. Once again, thank you for passing this along. 😀
