Is Microsoft To Blame For Malware?

Originally posted on Meshed Insights & Knowledge:

The action law enforcement services have taken against the GameOver-Zeus malware syndicate is great news for a change. In the UK, this was communicated with typical tabloid alarmism, framed as “two weeks to save the world” instead of “unusually effective action by law enforcement”. As a result, UK publications have been posting self-preservation information for their readers.

The BBC’s instructions start with the statement “If your computer does not run Windows, stop right here.” Users of other operating systems like Linux or ChromeOS have nothing to worry about this time, even if they are increasingly likely to be targeted elsewhere. As a result, some have asked whether Microsoft is to blame for all this malware.

are your electronic devices “conflict free” ?

Intel may be claiming some of its products are !

http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/processors/pentium/pentium-processor.html?wapkw=g2020

“Conflict free” means “DRC conflict free”, which is defined by SEC rules to mean products that do not contain conflict minerals (tin, tantalum, tungsten and/or gold) that directly or indirectly finance or benefit armed groups in the DRC or adjoining countries. We also use the term “conflict-free” in a broader sense to refer to suppliers, supply chains, smelters and refiners whose sources of conflict minerals do not finance conflict in the DRC or adjoining countries.

Let it be clear to everyone, I wish Kevin all the best and I am convinced that his experience will be greatly beneficial for all the Mail and Notes users. And let’s face it, 99% of us dreamed at some point to work for Apple and would really have a hard time to turn down an offer if it came by.

However, it seems that more and more people I know are moving away from the indie life.

I will tell you this: I cannot blame them to do so and I find myself thinking about doing the same from time to time. Here’s why.
