... Now they are beginning to pick on Apple. ...
..with very little success, apart from the Flashback attack which was a flaw in Java and immediately fixed with a patch update. Even though OSX, Linux and QNX are inherently safe, third party services like Flash and Java, and malicious apps are still a way in. I would hope that if there was a vulnerability in (say) Flash, that RIM would issue a patch as fast as Apple did with the Flashback.
Lastly, If I had opened the email I got from the xxxxx bank yesterday in my Playbook it would have rendered me open to losing all my money. Nothing will protect against that apart from education. Fortunately I don't have an account with them, and I would never click on such a link anyway.
I would say with Playbook and Apple I am safe provided I never fall for these phishing scams.
Windoze - now there's a different story, and the most advanced security feature they added (account control) is the first one that people turn off!

Glad I've purchased BB.
I have been using PC and a laptop for many years, and by now I am tired, like everyone else is, of protecting them with this program or/patch and that antivirus, firewall etc against many different but constant attacks.
I'm rockin the BlackBerry Passport, Z30, Z10, Q10, BlackBerry Mini Stereo Speaker, 64 gig PlayBook, BlackBerry Wireless Headset HS-700
