I guess Mac users can stop gloating about their uber "security"'. It is kind of funny that this Mac virus thing happened recently. I was talking with a co-worker two weeks ago about this very subject. He had brought up how his brother wanted to be a photographer and knew nothing about computers. Naturally, my co-worker suggested a Mac computer, even though he is an anti-Mac user. During our conversation, the subject of Mac's security came up and I chuckled and told him the real reason why the Mac could be considered "safe". What it basically boiled down to was that they aren't as important and don't really have the popularity that appeals to the hacking community. If that community wanted to do something to Macs, they could. Now, not two weeks later, there is a Mac trojan that hit half a million computers.

I know the Mac enthusiasts will still argue "that was a Java issue and not the Mac itself", but guess what? That is how most virii get into all computers, through exploits in 3rd party programs that have reaches or access to critical files. Welcome to the world of computer vulnerabilities. What I like about PCs is their vast variety of ways to interface extra storage. This can be used for critical backups or just as extra space for games and media. The price of external hard drives is always marked up, compared to internal, and is usually limited to the interface type, and low quality drive included. Most of the PC cases come with a few 5.25" bays that go unused. Why not fill a free spot with a drive caddy?

 

The Icy Dock MB971SP-B DuoSwap 2.5"/3.5" SATA Hot Swap Drive Caddy makes extra storage simple. The MB971SP-B only occupies a single 5.25" drive bay, however, it allows the interface of both a 2.5" and 3.5" HDD or SSD. Power input for the Icy Sock MB971SP-B Duo Swap Drive caddy only requires a single 15-pin HDD connection. Individual 7 pin SATA connections are used for the 3.5"/2.5" bays and SATA 3 drives are supported. The face of the MB971SP-B includes both power and eject buttons for both bays and there are also LED indicators for power and drive access.
