Anti-virus software is a $4 billion a year industry. Can you believe that? That's a lot of cash.
a year ago, I was annoyed since my McAfee subscription was about to run
out. I remember a day when the software makers didn't charge for
updates after a year. But now, you can't avoid it. I was reminded of
this because I sold my Dell laptop to a new friend, and she's annoyed
that it costs so much to keep it protected.
I say "reminded" because I have a Mac now. I'm one year virus free because Macs don't have virus issues.
Yet another reason I'm glad that I switched.
