In April 2004, I wrote an item for this column headlined "OS X Virus Hoax?" in response to a news item that was spreading fear, uncertainty and despondency (FUD) about a trojan theoretically capable of attacking Mac OS X computers. Here we are a year later and once again a manufacturer of antivirus software is wailing "the sky is falling." Once again, closer scrutiny reveals little change in the last year. Potential loopholes that might allow some low-life to weasel his way into Macs have been found, but so far no-one has even attempted it.

Are you willing to pay a subscription fee to Twitter?
Yes - Twitter is an important tool for my organization. Paying for a subscription is an easy business decision for us.
Yes - I use the platform frequently and want access to every available feature.
Possibly - It depends on which features will be offered and what those will cost.
No - I will only use Twitter for services that are available free of charge.
No - I don't use Twitter for free, so I'd never consider a paid subscription.
