Trailrunner7 writes with this snippet from ThreatPost: "Apple's first Mac OS X security update for 2010 is out, providing cover for at least 12 serious vulnerabilities. The update, rated critical, plugs security holes that could lead to code execution vulnerabilities if a Mac user is tricked into opening audio files or surfing to a rigged Web site."

Comment: So basically, what the RIAA is saying (Score 1) 203

Kids, when you grow up and get a job and have money, please, PLEASE don't buy any music from us. I personally know I pirated a lot of music when I was younger (er still in school..only 23 now)and before I got a nice job out of college. Now I have a job, and money and I respect the copyrights. I will not, however, buy any new stuff because it's mostly bull and the RIAA gets too big of a slice, and I do not support them because of all these hard ball tactics. But one of the first things I did was go buy every Led Zeppelin album ever made because I had all of the music just wanted to own it. Most of the time, at least in my circle of friends, if something is deserving of being purchased..it is. As it is, I RARELY if ever buy any new CD's (yes most of the music does suck) because of the way the RIAA has handeled everything. I tend to just stick with the radio now.

Put your best foot forward. Or just call in and say you're sick.
