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."

Well okay honestly I didn't know that. I know about the iRivers though, I saw a really cool one, but the guy at the shop told me it needs Windows XP (XP, not even 2k works!!). But I definitely avoid such crap, I mean damn, I want to use MY player everywhere I want. It happens that I go to a friend, he has a few good songs for my for my walk home and I want to copy them. With such players I first had to install some software on his computer - which is probably what this all is about, avoiding that you use your player too much in such a way. The number one MUST HAVE for an player for me is that it works as a standard USB drive, without ANY kind of extra software involved, and that it can play OGG files. So luckily, you found somebody who also has most of his music in OGG format - welcome to the club, we're at least two so far ;-)
