Mac OS X Over the weekend, a rumour spread like wildfire through Apple and Mac circles which stated that starting with Mac OS X 10.7, Apple would introduce the App Store model to the Mac, allowing only Apple-approved applications to run. It became apparent to me right away that this was a load of nonsense, and for once, I was right: Steve Jobs has personally dismissed the rumour.

I have 3G built into my netbook currently running Windows 7. Guess how I prevent rogue programs racking up a bill?

1. I use common sense, and
2. I look at the network icon in the corner

Geez, not to berate you, but let's not drink the Apple kool-aid that they are somehow protecting us from a threat so great that we can't be trusted with our own devices.
