What is his/her password?

Maybe you should ask him/her. A widow wants Apple to disclose her dead husbands ‘silly little password’. Obviously, asking the husband is out of the question. So what next? All she wants to do, allegedly, is download a new game onto the iPad, but we only have her word for that.

No, I don’t like Norton or Symantec Anything, but I don’t like any of the other big anti-virus suites either. I have tried them all, and just as I think I have found a good one, the software author trashes it. Anti-virus programs weren’t always this way.
