At least when Apple see's a problem that don't wait forever like windows... and are still continuing to re-invent the way computing is done.

That's pretty neat, does that mean that you have to do it everytime you restart an app, or just the first time ever?

Ape really screws this Security Update

I lost ability to connect to the internet with the new Security Update & Paranoid Android running after a restart. I turned that off, restarted and all seems well now.

This is a better solution than Paranoid Android. I was getting tired of being asked every time if I wanted to let an app launch and I eventually disabled PA, practicing “safe surf” in the meantime. I have Applescripts timed to go off at certain times without me having to be there to grant permission. A first-time-only approval is a much cleaner solution.

Hey! When Microsoft learns of a security problem, they often respond within only a few months. It's not their fault that they don't have any money to spend on patching security flaws, or that they don't know anything about software development, or that security updates aren't that important. I mean, what can you expect from the richest, most widely-used software developer? How much harm can it do if a few hundred million Windows systems go without a patch for a few weeks or months or years?

Most Windows users don't seem to run security updates anyway.

while it's nice to see these updates, I still am starting to wonder why there has been so many of them lately :p I know these fixes are mostly pretty much minor ones, but when we had jaguar we didn't get too much security updates...

luckily these are so small it doesn't really take much time to install them.

Actually with the way the iTunes store works, it's quite likely that no iTunes updates are needed at all for the store when it sets up in new territories.
