    I'm sorry, but I think that's got to be one of the dumbest article titles I've ever read.



    "Forthcoming Mac OS X 10.4.1 Update addresses Tiger issues"



    You mean Apple's going to release an update for Tiger? And it's going to address some bugs? No way! Who'dve thunk?

    Both pronunciations are correct. Cf. http://www.m-w.com/cgi-bin/dictionar...ry&va=ideology

    In the USA English perhaps. Not in UK English. Not in the Apple dictionary widget either - no mention of virii - to stray vaguely on topic ;-).



    Sorry it just grates that gradually American mis-spelling and bad pronunciation is spreading. Christ, last week I even heard an English BBC presenter pronouncing IRAQ the American way - ie. like eye-rack instead of the Iraqi way.



    Anyway, stepping off today's hobby horse...

    It's American English that's spreading around the world.



    Pronunciation changes over the years as well. The truth is that almost all English have terrible pronunciation. We do as well. It depends on where you are from.



    Lower class English pronunciation and accents are the worst I've ever heard. At least the strongest American accents are understandable.

    10.3.9 still working great.



    I don't understand why so many people rushed to install 10.4. Even less I have a hard time understanding those people's reactions to bugs in a .0 release.



    Hello?



    6.0? 7.0? 7.5? 8.0? 8.5? 9.0?, 10.0.0?, 10.1.0?, and lets not forget the infamous 10.2.0!



    I waited for 6.1, 7.1, 7.6, 8.1, 8.6, 9.1, etc.



    Dance for me guinea pigs! DANCE! MUHUHAHAHAHA



    /goes back to his rock-solid 10.3.9 system with his rock-solid 10.3.9-friendly applications

    There's a lot of things people might and can do. Popups with shakey gifs inside that tell you your PC is infected get clicked on too when it obviously some hook for spyware.



    In my opinion, all that is needed is some security settings relating to new/untrusted widgets. Apple has done the minimum, but they could take a few extra steps to ensure that lamers don't get themselves rooted.



    I'd be more worries about unscrupulous individuals posting some new killer widget to VersionTracker that actually kills, doing more harm than good. Those who love to install all these random apps and such would likely download and approve the widget, and the damage would be done long before the Mac community jumps on them and to the rescue.



    In general: Look Before You Leap

    Funny how just a short time ago, Microsoft was chastized for it's lax security policy... Apple does not have a stellar record and this ain't helping.



    Sorry guys, but it's the truth... this could be a big deal.
