If You Own a Mac, Expect to be Spammed by Companies Who Claim to Fix Viruses
I’ve just started to receive “virus protection” emails from less than legitimate companies that never could sell their business to PC users in the past. I guess they figure that Mac people are stupid because they’ve never had to use virus protection in the past. So, they’re spamming the crap out of us, convinced that we’re all morons who have never seen the inside of a computer before.
I kind of knew this was going to happen, but I really wish companies like this wouldn’t prey on people all of the time. Yes, I own a Mac. But I’m also a pc technician who doesn’t need a SINGLE FREAKING BIT OF ASSISTANCE FROM STUPID COMPANIES THAT CAN’T SELL THEIR PRODUCTS TO PC PEOPLE SO THEY THINK THEY’VE FOUND A NEW MARKET.
Here’s the moral of the story: Mac people have had it good because virus makers made their crap for PCs BECAUSE more people were using PCs than Macs. Now, the number of people using Macs has increased (not because they’re better than PCs but) because there are more people using computers today than there were 20 years ago. That’s really the only difference.
What this means is that people who make Macs will have to be a little more diligent in solutions. If not, people will stop buying Macs. It’s simple as that. Software solutions in the name of stupid companies that made crappy products for PCs aren’t going to somehow make a mint on “stupid” Mac users. They’re going to lose money in that market, too.
