    ...of publishing a news article about a Windows only trojan with a picture of a MacBook (Pro?)? I very much doubt it...

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/7701227.stm

    Hmm, should I have put this in the pictures forum? Not sure, feel free to move it mods.

    I am right in thinking that's a Mac aren't I?

    It actually happens quite often. BT sent out an advert for some windows only service which was pictured to be running on a Macbook Pro.

    I guess it's pretty common since so many departments creating the artwork for advertising use Macs.

    I always have a quiet chuckle to myself when I see them. :D

    BTW, that looks like a 12" Powerbook. (somebody needs an upgrade?) :eek:

    Guess its not as odd as it used to be since alot of Mac users (on this forum anyways) seem to be running Windows on their Macs these days. I assume Macs on Windows are as vulnerable to viruses as PCs.

    Still it would have made more sense to use a PC.
    Anyone know any figures of how many modern Mac users at least have Windows on their machine?
