Apple Macs are not foolproof

600,000 Macs were affected by a trojan virus. It was due to Java, but it is the same story for Windows too: an unpatched OS version that runs vulnerable versions of a program. The more popular any platfrom becomes, the more it will be attacked.

Like Windows, Macs need regular updates for the OS and its programs, antivirus, and other security precautions like a Limited account, etc.

The main reasons Macs are more stable are
1) due to all their restrictions and limitations (on drivers, programs, transfer e.g. in iPads you cannot see the files in a hard-drive other than through specific programs)
2) because it is uses a less popular platform.

3) transfer your current domains to the new account
4) upload the site files to the new account.
5) if you cannot do without your old username, then you can link the 2 accounts together afterwards.

Nokia now has a 3G / WiFi netbook, called Nokia Booklet 3G!

With up to 12 hours of battery life! The computing power of a PC with the full benefits of mobility 8O

I think with the seamless smart phone syncing, and Ovi cloud upload, Nokia is brewing up another "ecosystemonospolistic" storm!
