It would seem that Apple computers aren't invulnerable after all, as so many os their users seem to think they are. True, they are a lot less susceptible to viruses and trjoans only because hackers haven't been writing code for them--hackers go for the larger market, which is still computers running Windows. But this little chunk of news from Sophos, one of the leading companie battleing security threats like computer viruses, shows that hackers are now starting to pay a little more attention to Macs. Now that so many uses have switched over to Macs, we may well start seeing more of these episodes: Boobytrapped images pose threat to Mac users, warns Apple.
 
Backups for Your Data PDF Print E-mail

Reading an article called "The Ultimate Web Developer's Christmas List", I came across this one nugget that will be a great thing for anyone who needs to make sure their data is safe. It's called Mozy.

Using Mozy, you can store up to 2GB of data FREE. As they state on their website, "No setup fee, no credit cards, no expiration, no hassle." For $4.95/month you can store as much data as you want online. That kind of price can't be beat, considering what it would cost to restore the data from a hard drive gone bad. All your family pictures, etc., can all be stored where they won't be lost if your hard drive crashes.

For businesses the pricing setup is a bit different, you can read more about it on the website. But for a nominal cost you get peace of mind, knowing your data is safe.
