Apple Passes The Buck On iPod Virus

Apple Passes The Buck On iPod Virus

I caught the buzz on and digg today that some newer Video iPods are shipping with the RavMonE virus. According to the Apple Support article, this affects Video IPods purchased after 9/12/06 and only 25 cases have been reported so far. What amazes me about the support article is the following quote:

“As you might imagine, we are upset at Windows for not being more hardy against such viruses, and even more upset with ourselves for not catching it.”

Wow. How did a (unprofessional) statement like this ever get approved by anybody at Apple?? Rather than accept 100% accountability for a faulty quality assurance process, they’ve decided to blame “Windows”. Sure, it’s a shame there are so many Windows viruses out there. But, why not just blame the origin of the virus: the person/people who wrote the virus in the first place. At the end of the day, the virus is there because Apple didn’t do a thorough quality check…. period.
