Maybe it’s time for me to buy an Apple

Sometimes it feels nice to actually be able to predict the future in small leaps, Apple is planning MAC OS-X 10.7, and one of the more clever things they are doing is No software will be able to run on Mac OS X 10.7 without being approved and signed by Apple, Inc.http://rixstep.com/1/20100424,00.shtml.

In practical terms it means that I won’t need a virus software, all applications are “tested”, and those who violates, or are found to be violating code of conduct will be removed (thanks). Software developer can actually get money from this. More important, my computer won’t be running those Trojans…. The negative side, is that Apple is owning the root key, and any business that risks their business, will have problem to enter the validation process that Apple will be setting up.

Does this mean that computers will be safe in the future? This is an opportunity that computers will be more safe, but not safe enough, to only use a password to login to your bank. That won’t happen in the near future, as the management of computers you want to use to access your bank will still be hard and difficult.
