After years of relative safety, the Apple Mac is becoming an increasingly tempting target for malicious computer hackers, according to a new report published this week.
Security researchers have been aware of the threat to Apple since last year, when they detected the first piece of malicious code - or "malware" - specifically designed to target Apple.
Over the past few months, however, the number of malicious programmes has increased, according to a report published this week by F-Secure, an internet security company.
t's finally, really, totally, actually going to happen: Apple's ultraportable PC buzz is reaching died-from-the-fever-already pitch.
According to Taiwan's DigiTimes, Apple has placed orders for 13.3" backlit LED display components, and some believe it will be for a new ultraportable MacBook. It's not entirely clear why it couldn't simply be a skinnier MacBook in that standard-issue size.
Dell is also named in the report, but everyone's talking about Apple because Apple is sexy.
The short period in which T-Mobile has offered unlocked iPhones for 999 euros in Germany ended today after a state court in Hamburg had lifted the injunction obtained last month by Vodafone.
On November 21 Vodafone has filed a lawsuit against Deutsche Telekom, in an attempt to force the mobile operator, T-Mobile to sell to sell the device without a mandatory plan.
Parallels has begun testing its virtualisation software for Apple's latest operating system, Leopard.
Leopard was announced by Apple's chief executive, Steve Jobs, at his company's Worldwide Developers Conference in June. But it wasn't until October that Parallels, a Mac virtualisation specialist, said it would release a version of its software for Leopard.
I'm not sure what ticks me off more about Leoptard (I can't take credit for that nickname—some Brit coined it): the fact that so many of the semi-important changes don't work, the fact that Apple turned a stable OS into a crash-happy glitz fest, or that the annoying, scruffy Live Free or Die Hard actor infecting my TV (and our Web site, by the way) is pretending that Leopard is better than Vista. It's not better than Vista. Leopard is Vista. And Tiger is better than both of them!
