Bottom line:
The recent hubbub over the Flashback trojan has certainly raised concerns over the security of OS X, and we agree that Apple could do more to be responsive to malware threats when they are discovered.

Hmmm... Freaky socialists. I wonder how Santorum feels about these weirdos.

Acts 4:32-37 NIV

"All the believers were one in heart and mind. No one claimed that any of their possessions was their own, but they shared everything they had. With great power the apostles continued to testify to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. And God's grace was so powerfully at work in them all that there were no needy persons among them. For from time to time those who owned land or houses sold them, brought the money from the sales and put it at the apostles' feet, and it was distributed to anyone who had need. Joseph, a Levite from Cyprus, whom the apostles called Barnabas (which means "son of encouragement"), sold a field he owned and brought the money and put it at the apostles' feet."

It's never OK to pen a tweet that starts with "RT @username" and then make up something that that user didn't tweet. However, this simple rule appears to be too much for the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC), whose Twitter account sent out a number of fake retweets yesterday "from" Harry Reid, Barack Obama and others – retweets that were never actually tweets to begin with.
