Update: Apple has responded to a request for a response stating only: "We are aware of the issue, which occurs only in extremely rare cases, and we are working on a fix."
The same bug existed when you upgraded from Win2k to WinXP Pro. Not to mention the numerous bugs and security holes that still exist in Vista and Windows 7. Where's the articles about how much of a kludge Windows is?
They are back in 2002 and 2007. This is n4g (news for gamers) not h4g (history for gamers). Also if XP and Vista did that, it is maybe because they are new operating systems. Snow leopard is just a service pack that you pay for.
You should write one...
Bu bu bu Mac's can't make mistakes! :p I joke, but if this bug was in Windows for instance people would be here bashing Windows, Microsoft, etc and touting how superior Mac's are for not having the usual marketing spew.
A data destroying bug at this point in the game?... Wow Apple not only fell asleep at the wheel but they somehow managed to open the door and fall outta the car.
Apple fanboys have such a superiority complex.
and that's why the .2 update will be half a gig.
Apple is the one running adds saying they are virus free compared to Windows...guess that is not the case. Pretty much proves that neither OS is impervious. Maybe if Apple had a big enough market share for hackers to give a rat's a$$ about them they might find themselves in the same boat.
I am no apple fanboy... but software is prone to bugs... those who write these software are after all human :)
I expected the rare bug to be a real Snow Leopard bursting out of your Mac and mauling you to death. Hopefully this doesn't happen to me.
actually they wouldn't, people would accept it and move on, yeah it sucks losing your data, but its expected from MS... This is blown out of proportion cause its apple...
Offtopic but i loled at the pic is so funny hahahaha! :D Is he doing like ewww?!!!
Enjoying my martini and wating for the fun.
Weird, but it's no big deal. They do security updates pretty fast.
when all M$ does is take notes of Mac OSs this is also obviously better than Windows 7
Yeah... And dog sh!t is worth more than gold.
This is a gamers website, why on Earth would a Mac user have any interest in a gaming website? Only an idiot would buy a Mac for gaming when you could build a monster PC for 1/4 the cost. Mac troll, go away, you are as outdated as your namesake.
I just bought a macbook pro 13in after going hell and back and forth lol with ms all the virus and slow mo then i just got a mac because everyone one say's there great so i got the snow leopard os and its great guy's try it u might like it am using it now but the only problem with mac's are the flash when watching flash like youtube or any anime online it heats up one time and the fan kicks in but that's flash adobe fault and there is no virus to worry about because apple tends to update the os once they find a virus
Hey Pat, I'd like to buy a period
sorry we are all outta periods.
"sorry we are all outta periods" my gf can hook you up..could get messy though...too far?
Sorry, but I prefer having a right click and middle click option. Along with majority software/hardware support, including games. And the option to upgrade the parts of my computer when needed, not be wasteful and buy a whole new computer each time. Only uninformed/stupid people get virus's. 1.) Don't click on random AD's, or any AD's for that matter, as 99% of the time the AD's are links to sites whose primary purpose is to infect you. 2.) Don't use InternetExplorer. Use Firefox with AdBlock Plus add-on. (And NoScript if you want 100% security.) 3.) If your downloading suspicious files, such as when your pirating something. Don't just open it. Scan it with a virus scanner first, especially the keygen, which is usually what's infected. (I upload all keygen's I'm about to use to http://virustotal.com and if it tells me it's infected, I run the keygen in a program called "Sandboxie" to keep me from becoming infected :) .
So, how does it handle games? That's what I thought. Shut up.
Apple fanboys will say MS had something to do with it.
I'm an Apple fanboy and I own a 360. It has nothing to do with it...
What's the big deal? Every problem can be solved. The good news is, maybe some of the more elitist, smug Apple-only owners will not stick their noses so high in the air.
Meh. It's not the first time they've screwed up, and it won't be the last. As a long time Mac user, I've always (well, since the internet meant I had the possibility of immediate upgrades, that is) waited a week before any Apple upgrade... let other people find the real-world bugs that are missed by testing. Software isn't perfect, testers aren't perfect. It's probably why there are always those "don't use this software as part of a nuclear facility" tiny legal print stuff in EULAs... Too bad for those that got hit by it, though.
