Apple Has News And Updates For Fanbois

Today brought a number of things from the Apple world. First, Apple released an update that addresses that “Mac Defender” marware that’s been floating around. The full details can be found here, but here’s the highlights. It kills “Mac Defender” and it updates a little known OS X feature that detects known malware. Mac users should download this as long as they’re running OS X 10.6.7.

The other piece of news is the impending appearance of God Steve Jobs at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) next Monday in San Francisco:

Apple® CEO Steve Jobs and a team of Apple executives will kick off the company’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) with a keynote address on Monday, June 6 at 10:00 a.m. At the keynote, Apple will unveil its next generation software – Lion, the eighth major release of Mac OS® X; iOS 5, the next version of Apple’s advanced mobile operating system which powers the iPad®, iPhone® and iPod touch®; and iCloud®, Apple’s upcoming cloud services offering.

So we now know what’s on the table. Hopefully it will blow the socks off the fanbois. Chances are that the mere presence of El Jobso will do that and everything else will be gravy.
