    So when does it happen?

    i think that virus's on apple computers are a long time away because they have to learn to program in apples program code. it has one down side tough because apples operating system is based on unix alll the open source guys know how to program for apple but if they release a virus for apple they also risk infecting linux aswell. most virus programmers have a love of linux like we have a love of apple. in my opinion the iphone looks like a more promising target all the information stored on that thing a hacker could have a field day. credit card detail email addresses phishing credit card details from itunes or amazon. virus on the mac will happen but in terms of spyware there are more promising targets out there.

    Rather Macs Be Less Common?

    vista is more secure because they restricted access tot the register. which is like the worst idea in terms of software ever. i live in the uk and macs over here in this country are still in there infancy they may take off but not anytime soon. they are considerably more expensive than pcs in the great nation that i chose to inhabit. so mass market is not coming anytime soon. anything that Douglas Adams uses i feel should have some exclusivity because if apple gain to much market share then macs stop losing that thing that makes the special. look at the ipod when was the last time you brought out your ipod and someone turned and said wow you have a ipod.
  6. i have recently just upgraded to leopard and after several hours upgrading all the applications to there newest versions. i thought waiting for a couple of months to upgrade would mean that all the problems have been taken care off. but alas all my wishful thinking was not to be. i have recently just found that now my ipod touch will no longer sync with my apple macbook. has anybody else experience these problems does anyone have a solution i really don't want to reset my ipod in case it still fails to sync and i end up with an even more useless ipod. thank you in advance

    Why would you want a Mac Tablet?

    its simple where all tech geeks and its something for us to play with and something for us to show off with. other than that there really isnt any point imop. they are great for taking notes but any kind of long term use is impossible, ergonomically speaking they are very uncomfortable to use because of the way you have to use them. they'll crete a generation of hunchbacks. yet despite all my misgivens i still want one i just cant help it
