A federal judge rules in Apple's favor in the Psystar copyright infringement case
Nearly a year and a half after a Miami company called Psystar announced that it was selling "Open Computers" pre-installed with Apple's (AAPL) Mac OS X Leopard -- and 17 months after Apple sued Psystar for copyright infringement -- the case has come to its all-but-foregone conclusion: a federal judge in San Francisco ruled Friday in Apple's favor.

"Hey Dimwitt here's a pcworld article about russian hackers targeting Macs. http://tiny.cc/dL4Yi."
I assume that message, sent via Twitter by "chalupatime" Saturday afternoon, was directed at me because I wrote something a few weeks ago called "Why are there no Mac viruses?"
My tortilla-loving friend is correct. There is indeed an article by Gregg Keizer in PC World (as well as in Computerworld) about Apple (AAPL) computers being targeted for malware.
Keizer's source MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Sep 27, 2009 9:53 AM ET
There are, as far as we know, no Mac OS X viruses in the wild.
To prove that assertion wrong, you only have to name one.
Academic proofs of concept and theoretical vulnerabilities don't count. Neither do computer worms, Trojan horses, spyware, adware, spam or any of the other nasty species in the zoology of malware.
That eliminates Inqtana-A, iBotNet, MacSweeper and a handful of other examples of Mac malware usually trotted out at MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Sep 2, 2009 10:53 AM ET
The growing popularity of the iPod touch -- Apple's (AAPL) iPhone without the phone -- finally registered in the Internet market share data gathered every month by Net Applications.
Stuck for three months running with a 0.11% share of Web traffic, the iPod touch's share in April jumped to 0.15% -- a 36% increase in one month, according to preliminary data released overnight Friday. See the chart below:
The iPhone also gained MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - May 1, 2009 3:41 PM ET
Fasten your seat belts. There could be some bumpy nights ahead in the IT department.
When the information technology guys discover how painful it can be to upgrade their current PC hardware to Microsoft's (MSFT) Windows 7 -- the successor to the much-maligned Windows Vista -- they may be tempted to switch to Linux or Apple's (AAPL) Mac OS X.
That's the conclusion of the product specialists at CRN's Channel Web -- MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Feb 25, 2009 12:01 PM ET
This seems to be the season of lists, the bread and butter -- however stale -- of journalists facing a slow news day.
This one trods the most familiar ground in computerdom, pitting Apple (AAPL) Macs running OS X against PCs running Microsoft (MSFT) Windows. But it comes from APC, the longest running computer magazine in Australia, and it's unusually insightful.
I post only the intro and the topic headers here because MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Nov 17, 2008 10:32 AM ET
The presence on the Internet of both the Mac and the iPhone grew smartly this summer, registering record numbers for each operating system in the Net Applications survey issued overnight Wednesday.
The Mac's share of Web hits grew 5.34% to a record 8.28% last month, according to the Web metrics firm's September survey. The iPhone's share, having surged 57% -- from 0.19% to 0.30% -- in August (see here), grew another MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Oct 1, 2008 7:51 AM ET
Microsoft (MSFT) Windows continued its downward drift and Apple's (AAPL) Mac OS X inched up to a record 7.95% in the market share survey issued Tuesday by Aliso Viejo, Calif.-based Net Applications.
The biggest gain, however, was recorded by the open-source operating system Linux, which jumped more than 16% in June -- albeit from a small base -- to hit 0.79%.
The iPhone held steady at 0.16%, reflecting a leveling off of MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jul 1, 2008 7:23 AM ET
