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.

I am CONSTANTLY asking my wife to turn off her limewire when she is done downloading something. For me, walking past the living room and noticing router lights blinking like mad is like a gigantic neon sign telling me something is up. She however, is completely oblivious to such things.

Spank her. She'll thank you for it later.
