This is the first post from Grant Griffiths, an attorney and blogger from Kansas. Grant publishes the Home Office Lawyer blog, found at: Home Office Lawyer . Welcome, Grant:
This is my first guest post for the FutureLawyer and I thought what better subject than my favorite computer, the Mac. I get this question almost everyday, do you have problems with viruses on your Mac computers. Simple answer, NO!!! As Apple
states on its website:
"By the end of 2005, there were 114,000 known viruses for PCs. In March 2006 alone, there were 850 new threats detected against Windows. Zero for Mac. While no computer connected to the Internet will ever be 100% immune from attack, Mac OS X has helped the Mac keep its clean bill of health with a superior UNIX foundation and security features that go above and beyond the norm for PCs."
I do not even run a virus program on my Macs. I use a 14" iBook and a Mac Mini. Not only have I never had a virus. I have never had the dreaded blue screen of death. My iBook locked up for the first time in two years about a week ago. And it was nothing serious. A simple restart and I was back at it.
