    Apple has a lot to learn about getting along with others when it comes to security.

    From Slashdot.org....

    [h=2]Apple Snubs Security Firm That Spotted Mac Botnet[/h]Sparrowvsrevolution writes
    "Now that it's being increasingly targeted by botnet herders, Apple has a thing or two to learn about cooperating with friendly security researchers. Boris Sharov, the CEO of Dr. Web, the Russian security company that first reported more than half a million Macs were infected with Flashback malware last week, says when his company alerted Apple to the botnet, it never responded to him. Worse yet, on Monday Apple asked a Russian registrar to take down a domain it said was being used to host a command and control server for Flashback, but in fact was a 'sinkhole' that Dr. Web had set up to observe and analyze the botnet. Sharov describes the lack of communication and cooperation as a symptom of a company that has never before had to work closely with the security industry. 'For Microsoft, we have all the security response team's addresses,' he says. 'We don't know the antivirus group inside Apple.'"

    They don't need to.
    They have a $100 Billion cash reserve.
    They could buy both Bill Gates and Warren Buffet and have cash left over.
    Someone might want to educate them on the idea of the dividend.

    apple is no stranger to bungles. expensive bungles not out of the question. they might be a big man now, but that changes in the tech world all too often.
    They have had just as many fails as they have success. apple II, mac, Ipod, Imac and Ipad being some good hits.

    Pippin, Lisa, newton and their online service. are some bad i remember. kind of like nintendo. it's a well known name that has some flops and some home runs.

    Yes , They are very fast. Too drain the battery.

    They are a joke for the new school jokers, and bullies.

    Yes , Don't get caught with one around Houston, after dark, or they will steal it and your sneakers, and your rims.
