If you can get in, all of those things can be done on a Mac.

There's a new telephone spam going around. The person says he/she is from Microsoft and your windows license fee has expired. When I ask if they are sure that I owe such a fee, never having paid one, they assure me that I paid the fee when I bought my computer. When I ask why I owe Microsoft a windows fee when I have an Apple computer, they are sometimes stuck. One guy just said, "You have an Apple computer?" and I answered yes. Before he hung up he said, "No you don't." He sounded as though he was getting tired of people telling him that.

Apple computers are denigrated by Windows users as being too pre-packaged, too uncustomizable, too "plug-and-play."

Yet it seems Microsoft users are the ones who are more gullible to being scammed by social engineering.

Huh. I wonder why.

I cannot remember a windows user ever denigrating an Apple user. I really can't. But it does seem as if it is a requirement for Apple users to denigrate windows users. Perhaps written into the sales contract.

The reason windows users are more often scammed is because there are so damn many of them that the scammers don't normally bother with Apple users.

But you know all of that.
