Microsoft Addresses Issue with Virus-Infected iPods

Recently, Apple disclosed that a limited batch of their 5.5 generation video iPods were inadvertently distributed with a Windows virus.

In their announcement, they also took a jab at Windows, which many considered to be in poor taste.

It would have been better for Apple to simply acknowledge the error straightforwardly rather than resorting to mocking another company.

Microsoft responded to the situation with a statement to Reuters, emphasizing the importance of security across all platforms.
