You're not laughing at Apple-
Yes... Actually, I am.
you're laughing at a terrible situation for multiple users...
That amounts to the "What about the children" defense. People do dumb shit every day ... It doesn't obligate me to lose any sleep over it. There was a crowd of sheeple that flocked to FireFox just before XP SP2 ... And they got there just in time for FF to get shot full of holes too. Did anybody (with a brain...) not see that coming?? It's not that FF was a bad browser (I have no problem with it), it's that a bunch of self appointed (security) mavens decided to wave it about like a magic cloak of invincibility. ...And got called for it shortly there after. Ha!
Likewise - as of late - a bunch of sheep have been herded into the Apple camp with a lure of ultimate safety. ...And they just got spanked for it. Hard ... And well deserved. Because what they should have done is spent some quality time (reading... (which is free)) finding out how to properly
operate a computer in a secure fashion. Then it wouldn't have mattered what OS they were running as they'd be equipped with enough sense to know what to do next...or not to do in the first place as the case may be.
80/20 rule 101:
Did you update? No.
Are you infected? Yes.
...Do you see how these to points are associated? [Bobble-headed knod]
Good. *Smack* ...Now don't do that again.
The Darwin Awards are funny, not because it isn't tragic that the star of the story died ... But because the staggering lack of common sense displayed at the end left one to ponder how the hell they managed lived as long as they did.
