Creative gives up; Dell dives; 1,000,000 switched; It is your problem; Stopped being a zombie

Creative would like to give up the race for second place, instead they now want to bejust profitable. They’ve given up on the war for second.

Dell. Their stocks fell hard. Profit’s not what they expect. Sales are weakening. Slowed down for seven quarters straight. Who’s Dell again?.

Now, for the good news. It was estimated that there wasone million switchers from Windows to Mac during the first three quarters of 2005. This beat an analysts’ estimate of 500,000. They said they didn’t count on the ‘halo effect.’

A Seattle Times recounts that hardly a week goes that someone he knows goes to him with a Windows related problem. It was a year ago that he made the switch and he is not shy about telling people that they’re better off with a Mac. To all Windows users: “It’s not your fault. But it is your problem.”

Al Fasoldt reports that spammers have been hijacking PCs all over the world to do their dirty jobs. Zombie hijacking, as he calls it. One PC tried to send out 18 million spams in a year. But this doesn’t happen on just any PC; it all happens in Windows. What did you expect? He gives five tips on how to prevent a PC from becoming a zombie. His last tip? Get a Mac.
