Apple “Encourages” Antivirus on Macs

The first Apple switch ad claimed Macs didn’t get viruses. Now Apple admits that ad was a lie.

The only reason Macs didn’t get many viruses until now was because of their previously tiny market share. Now that every Starbucks-posing geek-wannabe is sporting a Macbook, virus creators now have a large pool of potential victims with deep pockets and shallow computer skills. That’s why Apple now “encourages” Mac users to install antivirus utilities.

Apple never was a big fan of truth in advertising. Just last week, they got another iPhone ad banned in the UK for showing unrealistic 3G download speeds. Wonder which ridiculous Apple claim will get shot down next.
