Intel CEO: “Get a Mac!”

“… maybe you should buy something else.”

Intel’s CEO is fed up with Windows.

Pressed about security by Mr. Mossberg, Mr. Otellini had a startling confession: He spends an hour a weekend removing spyware from his daughter’s computer. And when further pressed about whether a mainstream computer user in search of immediate safety from security woes ought to buy Apple Computer Inc.’s Macintosh instead of a Wintel PC, he said, “If you want to fix it tomorrow, maybe you should buy something else.”

Meanwhile, Winn Schwartau, security columnist for Network World, is “Mad as hell, switching to Mac”.

This is my first column written on a Mac – ever. Maybe I should have done it a long time ago, but I never said I was smart, just obstinate. I was a PC bigot.

But now, I’ve had it. I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore.

We have successfully moved to Mac in less than two days. Think about it: a security-friendly alternative that works and doesn’t require gobs of third-party utilities to safely perform the most mundane tasks.

Experimenting with WordPress

I’ve been playing with assorted weblog software, including iBlog and assorted flavors of Blosxom. I’m not really thrilled with any of them, but so far WordPress looks promising.

WordPress is implemented in PHP, and uses MySQL as its back end. Initial configuration was simple, assuming that one has straightforward access to the required PHP and MySQL facilities.
