At least the Chinese do something about it. Unlike Americans who sit down watching tv and drinking beer and bitching on slashdot (and never doing anything about it) while their government not only censors their internet connections, but the whole worlds.

This is why Americans are so fucking hypocrites. Do whatever you want on your own land, but leave rest of the world alone. We don't want your bullshit around here in Europe, and the rest of the world.

There's really never been any problem. I need to do business flights many times a year and I usually fly with Emirates (United Arab Airlines). The first class private suites are truly awesome and come with your own minibar, adjustable ambient lighting, big tv and lots of movies and a la carte menu. Drinks are free too and theres showers and spa. I have no idea why anyone would fly with American Airlines when you can have service like that.

I do also like flying with german airlines. If you fly business class theres always a specific person that serves whatever you may need - beer, your dinner and so on. And the service is great too - they usually assist me a guy, probably thinking I need some fun bro time while away from my girlfriend. Always had a great service too, like "my" guy asking me if I slept good (and they are sad if I didn't) and asking if I want more beer.

So what? He has UID 524434 so he has been around on slashdot for a quite while. That just shows he has past coding experience in Java, and quick google query shows he is coding with C# now. Java->C# is a natural progress (as the languages are similar, but C# is better) and Visual Studio 2010 and Windows environment makes a lot of sense for C#.

Uh, he specifically wants to spend more time on developing and not worrying about the hosting part. He also understands the risks in it. In that regard using cloud hosting and storage could be really good, as long as you calculate the price comparatively.

Since he is using Visual Studio 2010 for development, I even suggest using Microsoft's Azure. It integrates beautifully with VS and you can run your code directly in the cloud, while debugging too.

In the wild. That's how you rootkit your phone too. There's no reason why it wouldn't be used to install other crap on your phone.

I also find the comparison to Android funny;

But according to Gartner, the number of Android handsets sold in 2010 alone exceeded 67 million units, giving it an installed base that is larger, and growing much faster, than the Mac base. If a large numbers of eyeballs is indeed the lure that causes criminals to write malware for a given operating system, surely Android is a more tempting target than Mac OS.

Android has malware. And I think iPhone owners are better target money wise - mostly US rich kids.

Rather than making assumption about the whole humanity, maybe we should make assumptions about the intelligence of your family when other brother replies to random emails with his cc number and the other one spends friday nights trying to socially-engineer and hack his brother.

The perversity of nature is nowhere better demonstrated by the fact that, when exposed to the same atmosphere, bread becomes hard while crackers become soft.
