Spyware

The San Jose Mercury News says, "Get a Mac!"

Good Morning Silicon Valley: Sure, I could get a Mac, but the time I spend with my daughter removing spyware is very precious: Listening to Intel CEO Paul Otellini at the All Things Digital conference the other day, you'd think he was heading up Apple's marketing department. From today's Wall Street Journal:

Pressed about security by (a reporter), Mr. Otellini had a startling confession: He spends an hour a weekend removing spyware from his daughter's computer. And when further pressed about whether a mainstream computer user in search of immediate safety from security woes ought to buy Apple Computer Inc.'s Macintosh instead of a Wintel PC, he said, 'If you want to fix it tomorrow, maybe you should buy something else.'
