In case you have missed it, there is some malware for the Mac running around called Mac Defender.

If you use Safari, please go to your Safari preferences, General section, and uncheck “open safe files.”

If you think you have the Mac Defender malware on your Mac, or are curious about what it is, please see this document:

Thanks to Rory Bowman at AppleVan for alerting the group to this weeks ago.

Free electronic book “The Macintosh Way” by Guy Kawasaki
Aug 17th, 2010 by rschmid

Pick up your own electronic PDF copy of the 1989 book “The Macintosh Way” by former Apple employee Guy Kawasaki by following him on Twitter. After you click on following him , use the link on the page to download the book to your computer or i-Phone/ i-Pod Touch i-Books application.

For those of us who were followers of Appleback in the 80s and 90s, there was no single person who defined the enthusiasm and overall attitude of the company more than Guy Kawasaki. Guy was part of the team responsible for the original marketing of the Mac, and is credited with the use of evangelism in tech marketing to create a passionate following for a product.

His 1989 book The Macintosh Way was the first in a series of successful books about the sometimes uneasy marriage of tech and business, and to this day is not only a must-read for tech marketers, but also a wonderful history of the early days of Apple. Kawasaki went on to write other books: a copy of his book Selling The Dream (1992) remains on my bookshelf as inspiration to this day, and The Art of the Start (2004) is a how-to gem for tech startups. Kawasaki is now a venture capitalist and blogger, and is involved in the Alltop RSS aggregator.

Kawasaki now has the rights to The Macintosh Way in his hands, and he’s giving away electronic copies of the book to anyone who follows him on Twitter. To nab a digital copy of the book, run out to this site. There will be a short delay (or long wait if the Fail Whale is breaching), and as soon as you’re validated as a follower of @guykawasaki you’ll be able to download your copy.
