McAfee: Apple, Google TV, Facebook and iPads all key 2011 cybercrime targets

As 2011 prediction pieces go, McAfee Labs' threat report for the coming year is on the depressing side. The company's security researchers reckon that Apple kit along with mobile devices and geolocation services will be the most popular targets for threats in 2011, though smart TV systems like Google TV are also suggested as likely to see attacks. Clicking on Facebook and other social network links will also become a potentially harrowing experience, McAfee believes, with URL-shortening services used to redirect users to malware.

Some iPad Owners Likely to Cancel TV Service, Survey Says

According to a recent survey, it looks like a growing number of iPad owners out there in the wild are considering canceling their TV service within the next six months.
