    Hurrah for walled gardens and curated software.
    Hate my blasted virus and spyware checkers with the hard drives rattling away in the background. Turns my quad core into an arthritic 386.

    The "walled garden" is only as good as the lock on the gate.

    See this thread.

    Ipad Virus protection

    Sooner or later you will need virus protection on all smart phones, tablets. If you think not then you are only fooling yourself.

    The only iPads that are vulnerable to viruses are those that have been jail broken. If you are running a stock iOS device, no virus protection is necessary.

    Apple is committed to patching any and all security holes quickly and efficiently, and with iOS 5 this becomes even more easily accomplished.
