    Apple - Security is for non-turtleneck wearing folk

    Seems that Apple have introduced some glaring security holes to OS X Lion ... this is classic text-book stuff. http://www.theregister.co.uk/2011/09/19/apple_password_security_exposed/ I don't think we'll be hearing many whines from the fanboys about Microsoft security for a while :-) Or at least until they patch up their own mess and act like it didn't happen ;-)

    Worth checking out for a laugh! http://www.engadget.com/2011/09/14/windows-8-bsod-ditches-confusing-error-codes-for-uninformative-f/ Cute, but not very informative ... that's ok, as BSOD's usually happen in front of a humble user, and a minidump plus debug tools helps us to determine the issue remotely most times (unless you have DEM maybe?) ... still, maybe it'd be nice to see the (not so) cryptic error's...
