Even software piracy is easer on a Mac

Have iPod, Will Secretly Bootleg

When Apple introduced the iPod, the company was aware that people might use it to rip off music from the Net or friends' machines. Each new iPod, in fact, is emblazoned with a sticker that warns, "Don't Steal Music."

But it is unlikely that Apple imagined people would walk into computer stores, plug their iPod into display computers and use it to copy software off the hard drives.

I would not have thought of using an iPod quite like that! Maybe Apple needs to stock up on some new stickers.
