  1. I don’t like virus. Sometimes, I prefer Apple closed market method. Every application needs to go pass Apple. So no virus on Mac. :)

    • @Jayce: I hate virus too. :) Apple’s method is great but lots of Android apps are free of charge. Just hoping the Free Android Antivirus is strong enough to prevent the viruses…
