Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Everyone has heard of the phrase 'hoist on their own petard', but few folk know really good examples in real life. Apple, however, does. So there's dear old Steve Jobs, wowing the crowd with the new Power Mac G3's oh-so-wonderful ease of access, courtesy of the new Fisher-Price PC design's handy inards-exposing hatch, and saying how simple it is to add memory... ...while on the Apple stand, some light-fingered herberts have figured out the reverse is equally true: how easy this accessibility innovation makes removing memory. So how much RAM went walkies on the first day of MacWorld Expo? A whopping ten gigabytes, according to one Apple staffer engaged in one too many servings of local beverage Anchor Steam to worry about the company's recently installed thought police. This clearly explains the sudden appearance on day two of large numbers of well-muscled security guards, ready to kick the seven Steves out of any Mac buff tempted by the treasures within. Alas, they proved ineffectual -- as the Apple demonstrator, ready to put his machine through its paces for the benefit of your reporter, found when he was thrown by his machine's suddenly absent 400MHz PowerPC 750 CPU. ®
