    Just bought a new iMac and I am pumped but i don't want to mess it up, I watch a lot of tv shows online, from HBO, Showtime ... and I have always used my pc and would sometimes get a virus warning from some of the sites I find to watch things because they are not legit, should I get a virus protection program for my mac? if so, any recommendations? Thanks!

    None what so ever mate. There was a trojan going around in a iWork 09 Torrent but as of now save your money as you wont need it. No known viruses or such for our beloved  products .....

    EDIT : if you are worried or not quite sure there is a freeware app called iAntivirus that you can get HERE if you really think you need it ....
    Dont forget to use the Reputation System if someone has helped you out !!!

    And don't let the date of the FAQ fool you. Everything you need to know to make an educated decision as to whether you want an a/v product is in the first post.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
