Jobs' Virus Is Bill's Fault

Recently, many thousand iPods shipped with a computer virus, but do you think the folks from Cupertino admitted their fault the way Redmond does each and every Patch Tuesday (and often in-between)? As Denis Leary might say, "I DON'T THINK SO!"

Instead, Apple blamed Windows. It seems that one of the iPod manufacturers had a Windows box, and that's how the RavMonE.exe virus got installed on so many of the tiny Apple music players. Of course, the iPod itself is fine, but because the machine is an external drive, your PC could get infected. Maybe iPods should come with McAfee or Microsoft OneCare!
