A new Apple mistake.
Apple is now admitting that iPods shipped in the past 5 weeks may have a virus
that could, in fact, infect computers with Windows. Shock! Horror! We always knew that Apple hates Windows, but to punish Windows users for making a bad choice? This Microsoft vs. Apple war is getting too severe.
In all seriousness, the Washington Post Security Fix blog reported the story
and apparently, the virus was spread by a Windows machine used to test compability on new video iPods. The virus can be easily removed with any basic anti-virus software, according to Apple. What shocks me the most is that Apple, one of the most technologically advanced companies in the world, somehow lacked the foresight to run Norton while testing new devices. Looks like they're so busy pumping shabbily-made new iPods, they forgot to actually follow what most would consider to be protocol.
Forgive me for my anguish - my 2-year-old iPod has broken 4 times.
