Apple OS X update plugs 20 security holes -

I have to wonder if this is the shape of things to come for owners of Apple Computer. After all those years of hearing how bad Microsoft is and how many security flaws are in the average system, I wonder if the hackers are now turning their attention to the OS X system and to the Apple Computer.

For years people have been telling us how secure Apple is but I wonder if now it's simply a matter of not being really tested. I mean what hacker in their right mind would tamper with anything made by Steve Jobs. That plus the fact all those Apple fanatics would probably hunt down the hackers and shoot them.

But now, Apple is getting a mite big for its britches. You have these bogus announcements like what happened this past week. What was it, that Apple is making its own iPod stereo system. Wow, like no one has thought of that before. I have to agree with someone like John C. Dvorak becoming unimpressed with these 'announcements' from Apple. I promise, Steve Jobs could call a press conference bring all the Apple accolates together and belch into a microphone and he would get a standing ovation. Well perhaps not, most of the Apple fanatics would be lying prostrate before him worshipping his black t shirt and Levis 501 jeans.

Now, Apple is in the gunsites of the hackers, let see how many holes are exposed.
