Mac OS X "[Last week], we reported on a Trojan horse for Mac OS X that is just like the entry for Earth in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy in that it is mostly harmless. A new vulnerability targeted at Apple's home-grown web browser, Safari, is another matter entirely. A German security firm appears to have been the first to discover the Safari flaw, which allows for shell scripts to be executed after clicking a link."

About MP3 Players: All of them work with Macintosh, because they all act as a standard USB harddisk which ANY OS can read/write today.

... that's not correct. While it's true that many players function this way, it is incorrect to imply that they all do. For example, units like several of the iRiver models have firmware that implements its own protocol so that it can support the various radio and voice memo features. You can flash the firmware to turn it into a usb storage device, but at the expense of being able to operate the radio/presets/etc.
