Dropbox Lied to Users About Data Security, Complaint to FTC Alleges – probably worth reading if you’re a Dropbox user, decide for yourself if you feel lied to or not.

While reading about the new iMacs I noticed a rather amusing little line describing Bootcamp: Boot Camp is Apple's software that allows users to install Windows 7 on their Intel-based Mac.
