    Well, at least they accept they aren't the all-mighty in terms of system security. They could be very close-minded about it and never do this, even with more and more threats coming out.

    Mac people just hope that they don't do another thunderbolt driver "accident". Apple isn't known for good and fast drivers........
     
  5. Daily automated security updates sounds like a security exploit waiting to happen
     
  6. This is crap publicity. What is the difference between having a program that download the patch and posting the patch on a web site?

This is purely done to let fanboy think there system are safe. Yes my system is safe, I have the program from Apple that download the patch every day. Apple is so funny. Yes I dislike Apple, not for there products but for the overprice and there way to try to control everything. I had an iphone and could not even install a simple apps because Apple didnt want, they think people are too dumb to understand multitasking.

    I would imagine they'd only push out daily security updates, not other updates.
