    But Apples don't get viruses or Malware!!!!!! Also Flash will disappear when websites stop using it.
    @orlbuckeye
    1. Apple Computers do get viruses just like a PC will. The difference is that there are so many more PC's than Apple products the hackers will rather spend their time attacking a PC over an Apple any day.
    Let me google that for you

    2. Yes, when website designers drop the use of flash it will go away but that's not going to happen overnight. Just think of the amount of work that's going to be required to complete that task and keep in mind that older sites may never get updated.

    A little off topic
    I have been reading about how Mac can't get viruses like a pc. Some apple users can't even agree what defines a virus, malware or a Trojan. One even claimed you have to give permission for virus, trojan or malware to run that the only way you will get infected on a Apple or Linux system--I doubt that very much.

    One of the reason that OS X is primary Virus free is because prior to OS X the Mac OS was one of the worst in the world for Virus. During the late eighties through the nineties if you ran a Mac you were forever fighting Virus. So when Jobs took over he wanted an OS that would be hard to program virus for, hence, OS X.
