    I want iMessage on my work PC (Windows). I found this: http://imessageonpc.com
    but I thought I'd ask if anyone's used it before I try it out (could be dodgy). Anyone?

    I'm going to assume that it's bad news. I haven't heard anything about it, and the site is very light on details. Also, iMessages are secure, so they'd have to have some sort of deal with Apple to make that work.

    I reckon they could make it work if they have your password, and have studied the data going in and out of the Apple app when they log in with a known password. I'm more worried about them selling my password and next thing I know everyone's masturbating to my naked selfies.

    I would steer away from it - even if it supports the iMessage protocol, being unofficial, it could be keylogging, or otherwise capturing details of your conversations.

    True. Does the firewall in Windows 7 let you restrict the IPs that an app can talk out on? If I could look up on my Mac what Messages talks out to (which should be doable in the terminal - maybe netstat or lsof or something) I could lock down the Windows app to only talk to the same IPs, maybe...
