this makes the news, but for the wrong reason

I came across this story this morning.

Of course the headline caught my eye, as was intended. The story itself is rather mundane, but I did find this passage rather important:

“When it came to protection from computer viruses or other Internet-transmitted woes, people said they would rather change a diaper, be stuck in traffic, visit a dentist or get a colonoscopy than clean machines.”

And this:

“It is also noteworthy how we entrust our computers and the Internet with our most intimate details – even if we don’t have the time or inclination to worry about computer maintenance or safety.”

Funny how people will unload a lot of cash for a new computer, and then willingly put a bulls eye on it. :o
