So that iPod virus thing that came out today. I was hit by it!!! and boy did it piss me off for so many reasons.
I'd bought my brand new shiny iPod. I even traded in my reliable 3rd gen iPod "Atrus" for it to get a discount.
So I get home plug the new sleekness in and to start with I get a message saying that I needed to upgrade to iTunes 7. Unknown to me, this was also a message that the virus was paying my computer a visit.
So I download iTunes 7, and start the installer, and
Man that fired up. Any change in iTunes is a bad change; here they force me to upgrade to a whole new level of horribleness and, seemingly at the time, give me a virus with it!
I went through some safety measures to make sure I had a good installer, tried reinstalling and all if fine.
When I tried getting the installer again that part of the webpage ( yea just part of the page ) was down, so I figured maybe they caught something. Anyway, I figured it was a fluke, and went on my way.
Luckily that was the end of it, I have McAfee still from GaTech, and I can only assume Microsoft's is actually running since the updater has me update it's definitions multiple times a week.
But it's all ok now, and Podder is here with me. The upgrade was very very nice, even if it wasn't absolutely necessary.
