The iPods were infected with the virus at one of Apple’s contract manufacturers.
The virus does not affect Mac customers.
“As you might imagine, we are upset at Windows for not being more hardy against such viruses, and even more upset with ourselves for not catching it,” Apple said on its support site.
Bullcrapple. Maybe I’m getting too cynical (and really, I have no stakes in this story, not having an iPod of any flavor and having no intentions of adopting that particular piece of technology in the future), but I simply do not believe Apple’s claim of innocence here.
