In the past there was a belief that Macs were safer than PCs because "they don't get viruses." That belief came from the fact that malicious software is only built for platforms that people use - particularly gullible people. When Apple was only able to give their computers away to schools, there was no money to be had in writing malicious code for Macs.
Today, an increasingly gullible population is switching from PC to Mac, partially because of a misconception that the platform is easier to use and partially because of the security belief. Because of this, more and more malicious code is being written to take advantage of those unprotected computers.
If you have made the switch to Mac without knowing the actual threats to the platform, then you definitely need MacKeeper. It helps keep those Macs safe from the onslaught of software designed to compromise those machines.
In addition, the software adds capabilities for security and optimization. The drive can be wiped, the computer can be located, etc. It also allows you to control the computer's boot and run time, by allowing you to turn off startup applications. Get it now for as low as $9.99 per month.

With over ten years of audio engineering experience, Nick's addition to PLuGHiTz Corporation is best served when he is behind the mixing board every Sunday night to produce the audio side of F5 Live: Refreshing Technology, Piltch Point and PLuGHiTz Live Night Cap. While mixing live every week, his previous radio show hosting experience gives him the ability to co-host as well, giving each show a unique flare with his slightly off-center, yet still realistic take on all things tech. An integral part of the show, you can find Nick always enveloped in coming up with new (and sometimes crazy) ideas and content for the show and you can always expect the most direct opinion on the stories that he feels need to be shared with the world. During the few hours where Nick isn't sleeping or working on ways to improve the company, he spends his free time going to hockey and football games and playing the latest titles on Xbox 360. Email him for his gamertag and add him today for a fun escape from the normal monotony and annoyance that the Xbox LIVE gaming community can sometimes be!
