Clifford Van Meter asks: What's wrong with this picture?

Why is it whenever a new Microsoft patch comes out that fixes 77 security flaws in their crappy OS it gets reported as “Microsoft Improves Security in XP”, but anything that Apple fixes gets, “QuickTime suffers four critical holes”. TechWorld has used exactly that headline in reporting that the new QuickTime update fixes four critical security holes.

Its like the story about Steve Jobs and Bill Gates playing frisbee by the lake. Gates throws the frisbee over Job’s head and into the lake. Unflustered, Jobs walks on water onto the lake to retrieve the floating frisbee — the next day the headlines read, “Micsoft Exceeds Expectations, Apple CEO Can’t Swim.”
