Mac OS X While Snow Leopard includes some improvements in the area of security, noted security researcher Charlie Miller, winner of two consecutive "Pwn2own" hacker contests and co-author of The Mac Hacker's Handbook, concludes that Apple missed the boat on security in Mac OS X Snow Leopard. "Snow Leopard's more secure than Leopard, but it's not as secure as Vista or Windows 7," Miller said.

Where you went wrong was going further than just making him aware of an alternative. You proceeded to argue with a paying customer.

When he went in to get what he wanted, he probably wasn't looking to be "educated" by a sales clerk. You can't deny that the mouse he selected would _not_ work. It doesn't matter that the other mouse would also work. The Apple brand mouse is the one that he was _willing_ and _able_ to pay for.

Are you still surprised by the reaction you got? Nerds... .


Exactly!

``I don't understand how f'n stupid these customers are Bob. I tell them they'd be a moron to choose full price when this will do and that only an idiot wouldn't listen to me, but they just don't seem to give a crap. I told the prick to try Best Buy.''
