Apple vs. The Media

Filed under: — menk @ 3:48 pm

After a blizzard of media stories about the recent malicious software and exploits targeting the Mac it is becoming clear to the more educated publications and reporters this is totally overblown. I surmise that the fact that someone has actually been able to create even a weak attack on Mac OS X is such a shock that instantly jumping in the ‘doom and gloom’ bandwagon is almost a reflex action for a reporter with a deadline.

BusinessWeek is amongst the first major publications to realize this level of coverage of essentially a “non-event” was misguided and note such in a story.
