One last tidbit from the D9 Eric Schmidt interview (hey – this is turning into a liveblog!). When asked how consumers could be more secure, he mentioned use the Chrome Browser (natch), use two factor Gmail authentication and [most importantly] dump your Windows PC (like Schmidt has) and get a Mac. He also reiterated that he was a proud former Apple board member.
Schmidt and Google are probably still stinging from getting hacked by China through their Windows-based PCs a few years ago.
Still, interesting he didn’t say “Get a ChromeBook!”, no?
