Winning Pwn2Own Hacker: Macs Are Safer Than PCs

Well, its nice to see the that the winner has common sense on his side.I've grabbed various bits of this from Gizmodo, whom got it from Tom's Hardware."I'd say that Macs are less secure for the reasons we've discussed here (lack of anti-exploitation technologies) but are more safe because there simply isn't much malware out there. For now, I'd still recommend Macs for typical users as the odds of something targeting them are so low that they might go years without seeing any malware, even though if an attacker cared to target them it would be easier for them."Be sure to read the Article before you start flaming.It mirrors what me and goodhart were saying before,A computers security is based entirely on the user.I used windows for over 2 years, with no anti-virus, no anti-spyware. Just a good firewall, and my common sense.My first rule of computing common sense is, only download pictures, music, and movies.If your going to get some illegal software get it from someone else whom has used the install files, and knows they work!Also, do not trust ll.13 when he links to your a serial website without informing you that most of them are Trojans.

I have a mac that constantly, randomly shows all open windows?

I'm using a mac for presentation purposes and it constantly, randomly shows me all of my open windows, dimming the second display. This problem has been happening for a while but has not been a huge problem since it was not being used for presentation purposes. It is really distracting for viewers when the power point suddenly disappears and the screen dims. It would be a great help if someone could tell me why it is doing this. Thanks

How do I get a DVD burned on a Mac to play on my TV?

I recently downloaded a movie off the Internet for my Mac and wanted to burn it to a DVD disk so I could play it on my TV. I thought it was just like making a cd (obviously wrong). I burned the disk like I though I should but when I put it in my DVD player on my TV, it said that there was no data on this disk (or something like that). I am not sure what step I am missing but can any one help?

I want to erase data from a Mac but not the programs.

I have an old iMac (2004) with not too much personal stuff on it that I am worried about, but I am giving it to a friend, and I don't want to erase the music in iTunes or the applications like Photoshop and Word that can't be upgraded any longer.  When I Google how to erase a computer, the instructions for a Mac are sooooo easy - but all the directions talk about wiping out your "files". Are "files" programs that I can no longer load on to that Mac (because I no longer have the original disks, product serial numbers etc.)? If that is the case is there another way to make my information on that old computer (that I was using up until 3 months ago) safe? I just don't want to loose the software applications that it has, but I would like to loose their content, ie, a journal I kept on Word, art stuff on Photoshop, old emails I saved, love letters, naked photos (just kidding) - the usual stuff. I am not so worried about my friend but more about the next person down the road who might end up with this computer.
