    "Charlie Miller, the security researcher who hacked a Mac in two minutes last year at CanSecWest's PWN2OWN contest, improved his time today by breaking into another Mac in under 10 seconds."

    Unpossible. Macintrashes are unhackable. OS-suX is the Oracle of operating systems. UNBREAKABLE!

      The question is not whether Mac's are hackable, but rather why would you want to. Hey man I just stole someones graphic arts file.

      Just because you can doesn't mean you should. This applies to making babies, hacking, and youtube videos.

          yeah, the PWN2OWN material was in the same room as the Lockpick Village at CanSecWest and it was an amazing contest. i was really impressed with the high degree of clue and ability i saw in the people whom i met here.
          "I'll admit I had an OiNK account and frequented it quite often… What made OiNK a great place was that it was like the world's greatest record store… iTunes kind of feels like Sam Goody to me. I don't feel cool when I go there. I'm tired of seeing John Mayer's face pop up. I feel like I'm being hustled when I visit there, and I don't think their product is that great. DRM, low bit rate, etc... OiNK it existed because it filled a void of what people want."

            Like I've said before, I know several thousand Mac users, I only know a half dozen Safari users.... I think so far the only browser not to fall has been Google's chrome, but we all know Google is evil, and would never use that. The only truly non-hackable os/computer combination is one that is locked in a safe turned off, but what's the point of that?
