Not 100% sure but I think on the home PC side they have to re-new every year to get their daily virus updates - in short you buy the software for say 70 bucks and next year you purchase a re-new license so you can continue to get the daily virus updates ? <br><br>Any PC users out there that can shed some lite on this ??<br><br>
[color:blue]Hot on the tails of an article I read yesterday (might have been on news.bbc.co.uk) about how virus writers are turning their sights on the Mac, and getting more series in their attempts to annoy that community now.</font color=blue><br><br>Thats a bummer but yes the writing is on the wall as the Mac community grows and starts to attract unwanted attention.<br><br>Lets just hope that writing those virii for the Mac proves to be more difficult and the basturds just give up<br><br>
Thats the way its always been so far "market share" - but since Apple is making world wide news with the iTunes and iPods, Apple is bound to attract some unwanted attention.<br><br>I hope that writing a virus for the Mac proves to be more time consuming and thus they will give up. Then go back for the easy target PCs.<br><br>Don't mark my words but if we are talking about market share.<br>My guess is that iTunes Store would be the first target with its 70% market share<br>The 2nd target would be the iPods.<br><br>Anyway most virii comes from Asia and Euro so hopefully they are to busy stealing copyrights <br><br>
